Clients are saying:
"Rachel was phenomenal! She quickly and thoughtfully lead the charge in finding me my new home. In my initial search, I was very clear and specific with my parameters. Within hours, she tailored her search to accommodate my priorities - and I could have not been happier with the options she shared with me. We scheduled showings and put in offers at multiple properties, and when the odds were not in my favor as owners rejected my first offer, she remained optimistic and eager to find the perfect fit. Rachel delivered within hours once again (after that initial rejection), and she found an option at an even better rate that truly left me feeling at home. Beyond the initial search, Rachel went beyond what would have normally been her responsibility and helped guide my roommate and me though both the lease signing and initial move in process. I very highly recommend Rachel's services and hope that I'll have the opportunity to work with her in the future."
"Rachel was fantastic! She listened to every need and specification we required and quickly produced showings that matched our criteria. I never felt pressured or rushed with Rachel to make a decision because she understands the importance of finding the right home. Her ability to think ahead and ask questions that I hadn't even thought of, makes her invaluable to anyone looking for a home or an apartment. She treats each of her clients with the utmost professionalism and the personal attention shown makes you feel truly valued. She was able to negotiate for the apartment we wanted and without her skills I'm not sure if we would have ended up with our desired apartment. I would recommend Rachel LaPorte to anyone looking to buy or rent an apartment or home!"
