Experience and Intuition are the qualities that make Laura Blackwell the best realtor I have ever worked with. She found the perfect home for me and my lifestyle, which involves more fun and travel than home improvement projects. A fabulous negotiator, Laura put her background in mortgage financing to work to help make the home buying process much easier. I can not thank Laura enough for all that she did for me. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a positive and stress-free real estate experience.

Laura has the patience of a saint. She is also very strategic and thoughtful in her home search process. She gathered intel from us on what we liked and didn't like about the homes we looked at and compiled that information into what I call "power showings." These showings captured the essence of not only what she learned about our preferences, but also about what we learned about our own priorities throughout the process. In the end, Laura got us the house we wanted, despite multiple offers on the table. We will definitely be working with her again!

Really understands the local market - steered me away from a property that she was concerned wouldn't appraise well (and didn't) and helped me find the best place available in my budget!
- Impressive negotiation skills - did not leave a penny on the table!
- Great network of contacts from movers to contractors.
- Went above and beyond even months after I closed - down to climbing ladders and hanging my gallery of paintings for me!

Laura is simply amazing. This is my third home and where I have doubted realtors in the past, Laura has my unquestioned trust. I was living out of state and trying to relocate, and Laura always made sure she kept me in the loop on new listings and always made herself available if I had questions. She really takes the time to get to know her clients, and won’t settle until she finds the perfect house and makes it their home. Even a year after purchasing my house, I rely on Laura for any and all of my St Pete real estate questions. She’s simply the best.

I never thought I could have a home like this until Laura Blackwell found us our dream home! She was called the “STEALTH Buyers’ Agent by the Listing agent! Not only did we see the home first (my husband saw the home with Laura at 10:00 am and at 11 am Laura was off writing up the offer before I had even seen it!) When I got to see it that evening after work…I was tearful, the home was perfect!

Showed home in 2017 in North East Park, Saint Petersburg, FL 33703. I cannot say enough how valuable Laura was in my search for a new home. Always willing to go out of her way to help in anyway as well as a great source of knowledge. I highly recommend her as a person to help you find your new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Gandy-Sun Bay South, Tampa, FL. Hands down the most amazing experience you could ask for and we're now 1000% spoiled when it comes to home buying since this was our first. Laura is not only a spectacular professional with a wealth of knowledge and limitless connections to make the process even more smooth, she is a honest and heartwarming person. Laura went WELL BEYOND the call of duty for my husband and I and we could not be more thankful than today...closing day...for her friendship and just outstanding service and commitment to us as her clients.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $275K in Disston Heights, St Petersburg, FL. Wonderful to work with. Extremely knowledgeable about St. Petersburg and surrounding area and their amenities and listens to you and what you are looking for. Laura never applied any pressure so the search took as long as necessary. I'll admit I can be "difficult" on occasion but she was patient and we were successful in finding a house meeting my requirements. In short: Knowledgeable, friendly, patient, honest, looks out for her clients interests

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Edgemoor, St Petersburg, FL. Hi! I would absolutely recommend Laura Blackwell with Re/max Metro. She helped us find the perfect home, a perfect neighborhood and helped arrange everything from moving service to painters. She is kind, patient and incredibly knowledgeable about Saint Petersburg. If you are looking for more than just a house, and looking for a true home, then she is the person to call!

We have known Laura for more than 20 years. Throughout this time Laura has financed our dream home in the Old Northeast 10 years ago. And, now she found us an incredible urban loft in McNulty. Now that we "empty-nesters" we can live the down town St. Pete dream. Let's just say we will be friends and clients for life!
