Working with Laura at Silvestri Properties has been nothing but pleasurable. She helped us identify and purchase a home after many months of looking. She listened carefully to gain a sense of our needs and shared options as they came up on the market. However, the most unique and appreciated element in the series of transactions was she always did what she said she would do. She was always on time, she always followed up. She has a deep bench of resources to call on such as HVAC contractors, plumbers, inspectors, septic tank experts, carpenters, painters and a host of other connections that lubricated the otherwise stressful time. She made the calls, got things scheduled and followed up with the trades people when I had questions. Her calls and emails are focused, factual, frequent and shine with confidence. She’s honest, hardworking (she even helped spread mulch to promote the sale of my home), pleasant, and I never doubted she had my best interests in mind. Without hesitation, I would recommend Laura to those getting ready to list a home and those planning to purchase a home.
We had a wonderful experience working with Laura to buy our house in Chapel Hill. She has great knowledge of the area including the various neighborhood 'personalities' down to what areas are likely to flood. Because her family is in building, she knows how to identify quality vs. poor construction. She was also able to recommend the other professionals one needs when buying a house such as a lawyer, inspector, etc. She came up with creative solutions when some minor issues came up. She was patient and pleasant and we would highly recommend her.

Working with Laura @ Silvestri Properties was just fantastic. She is knowledgeable, patient, insightful and deeply experienced. We worked together in searching for our new home and not once did she lose sight of the goal (nor her sense of humor), despite the lengthy process. And we could not be happier with our new home! We also worked together to sell my house, which I had lived in for 22 years. Her guidance, professionalism and strategic thinking were invaluable during that somewhat emotional process. Laura is always looking for the win-win and seems to derive genuine joy from her work, which makes the task of buying or selling your home with her a lot of fun and feel like a true partnership.
