Notes from Happy clients


My husband and I bought a fixer-upper house that had wallpaper in every room.  We took down the wallpaper and were faced with the very daunting task of painting the whole house at once.  The thought of picking out colors for every room in the entire house was overwhelming.  We had put so much work into this house already; I really didn’t want to mess it up!  Laura came in and not only calmed me down, but made me excited about the possibilities! She spent time with me, my husband, and the house to get a real feel for our personalities and preferences.  The paint colors we chose really suit us and enhance our enjoyment of each room and give the whole house a great personality and flow.  We could not be happier with the end result!

I have been working with Laura for 5 years. I consider her part of The Linda Hall Real Estate Team. My clients absolutely love her. She is one of our teams most valuable assets because she shows the seller how to make their home the most desirable to buyers. She can move one piece of furniture and make a huge difference in a room. She goes through the home and addresses all of the things that will help them sell their home. Laura stages almost 100% of our listings, it is a requirement in our process before professional pictures are taken. She is a true professional and I highly recommend her services if you want to take your business to a higher level.

"We have a stately 5 bedroom home (about 5,600 sq ft) on the TPC Piper Glen golf course that needed to be ready for sale in a short period of time. The house is a fine home in excellent condition with good curb appeal, but it did not show well.

We hired Laura Gurrad to tell us how to make a show place home using the things we already owned with a reasonable shopping budget. We needed a professional who would tell us the truth and not sugar coat what we needed to do to get our home ready for sale. Laura sold us in the first 5 minutes.

She did a total room by room and outside inspection of the problem points. She took a thorough inventory of all the "good" assets that we had for decorating. Then, she created a staging plan and schedule for us.

Phase one was to get each room organized. After organization Laura worked her magic by using much of what we owned to make each room tell a unique story to a potential buyer. She treated our shopping cash like it was her own money and it was amazing how far she made our budget go.

Laura literally turned our entire home into a showcase within 10 days from start to finish. She was on budget, on time, and delivered a superior result. Fabulous experience from start to finish."

SOLD! One of only a few that sold out of 80 homes available in the Piper Glen subdivision during the downturn.

I work, alot! So when I am not working being home is a treat, and I want to spend time with friends and family. The problem was that I did not have the time, skill or budget to make my place feel homey for myself or for entertaining. So I did not have much company. I wasted many years without HOME.

Then I found Laura. I was skeptical about how much could be accomplished on my limited budget but she turned all my worries into smiles. Just spending 2 hours with her made a huge difference, She rearranged the rooms and placed the things I already owned in new places and showcased them in ways I had not thought of. With a $500 budget, that covered her services and some shopping, she turned my condo into a piece of heaven. It's a warm hug that greets me at the end of each of day. I love my new place!

Last weekend I had family over one night for pizza and friends over the next for a cocktail party. Every one was so impressed and several people actually said that they could not believe the difference. I could not be more happy or at home, I love my place now! When she says she is a Home Maker, she means it!

"Hiring Laura to assist my clients has proven to be one of the best decisions I've made in my ten years practicing real estate in the Charlotte market. Laura is a pro who knows what it takes to move a property, especially in today's competitive environment.

For the agent (and seller) who are serious about selling property for top dollar, and in record time, hiring Rooms by Laura G. will give you a clear advantage over the competition."
