"Laurie is very caring, knowledgeable, hard-working person. She doesn’t quit until we (the clients) are happy. She sold us our new house and sold our old house and we couldn’t have a better person helping us every step of the way. She deserves recognition!!!"

Rick & Patti C

"Laurie made several trips to the property in question. What really impressed me most was that she always answered her phone. I did not have to leave a message and wait for her to return. Questions were taken care of immediately. She truly does provide unquestionable service!"

“So I want to tell you about this fantastic lady Laurie Baker Kratz. In May we bought a house in Punta Gorda. She went above and beyond any Realtors call of duty. She took us to see homes for 5 days. We thought we knew what we wanted, but we didn't! She had so much patience! Shopping for a home in Florida is very different than New England living. She knew about the ins and out of Florida living and Northern living since she's from PA. After seeing different types of homes and neighborhoods we loved Punta Gorda.

She was our voice and also helped us with decisions that we had no clue about. All of her advice was spot on. We trusted her and she never let us down. Her ethics and loyalty are above and beyond. We don't see to many folks anymore with such standards that Laurie Baker Kratz has. She even referred us to many different types of business that we needed for the future. 5 STAR Realtor!!!!!!!”

Through patience and perseverance, they were able to find that perfect home. I have to say that it was no small feat. We will continue to use this dynamic team to buy and sell properties in the future because they were truly outstanding.”

“It was important to us to have a straightforward, honest broker who was professional and considerate of our needs while also delivering information directly without embellishment. Our experience with the Kratz team far exceeded any expectation we had. What we experienced was the perfect marriage of professionalism, empathy, honesty and trustworthiness, hard work and care, diligence and character. We are so thankful to have met two people whose word and handshake really mean something. We were thoroughly impressed with what an exceptional job Laurie Kratz did to get our home shown right off the bat, sold in such a short time, for top dollar. Laurie needs to be the example set for others in her field. She demonstrates that integrity, honesty, compassion and authenticity truly pay much greater dividends in the long run. People truly matter to her! Laurie is a phenomenal realtor and an amazing person! She is a wonderful communicator, extremely kind and professional and will advocate wholeheartedly for her client! Working with Laurie Kratz comes with our highest recommendation.”

“While we were still living in CT, we decided to purchase a home in the Port Charlotte area of Florida. We have a daughter and son-in-law who live in Port Charlotte who are also “snow birds” from VT. We thought it would be wonderful to be close to our family even though it would only be for six months of the year. Little did we know the house in CT. would sell in one day and we found ourselves saying, what now and feeling a bit stressed. We teamed up with Laurie and Vern Kratz through friends of ours, who became our realtors. After speaking with them over the phone we felt very comfortable knowing we would be able to find a home we would love. We viewed many homes over the internet and asked Laurie and Vern to take a look at the homes we had an interest in. We discussed what our needs were so they had a good understanding of what we were looking for in a home. They kept in close contact with us and the thing we most liked about them was their honesty. They explained situations we were not aware of in Florida which made things less stressful. Buying and selling a home at the same time can cause stress in our lives which we did not need. If we placed a call to them, they either answered their phone or were able to get back to us very quickly.

When we arrived in FL., the second home we looked at was the one for us. Thanks to Laurie and Vern, we purchased our home July 15th and moved in August 11th. We feel we made a lasting relationship with Laurie and Vern and would recommend them for your home shopping needs in this wonderful warm state of FL. If need be, we would also use them again as our realtors. They are very honest, caring, wonderful folks who listen to your needs.”
