Applause from our Customers
"Dear Laura and the entire Josiah Allen Family,
" Please allow me to take a moment to express my deepest thanks and gratitude for your support of Long Trailís Rat Pack event. The evening was a smashing success! Most importantly, the event showcased the passion that folks like you have for children, educations, and schools. Our community is uniquely positioned to offer families outstanding educational offerings, and I know from experience that these offerings can drive real estate decision-making. Thank you for partnering with LTS. We are, indeed, very fortunate to count you among the many friends of our school.
Head of School
"Thank you for your help and ideas for our kitchen/mudroom project. The half wall is my favorite — brilliant! You probably saved us $80,000 and a year of Dan's life from the corporate grind — priceless!
"You did it. You successfully sold our house and we are so incredibly appreciative. Thank you for guiding Gary and encouraging him and getting him to the closing. As I have said before, you are superb at what you do. You listen, and you go the extra mile, and you really care about making the human connection. Our wonderful house had languished for two sad years, much to our dismay, and in a week, you called with a buyer. You met with us and asked us questions that we had never been asked before: what did we love about our house. What were the special characteristics. Did we want people to take off their shoes when visiting. Ponder fell in love with you instantly and leaned into you — he saves that for special people in his life. He knew right away.
"Thank you so very much for making this sale a reality. Thank you for even enduring the silliness of the "list of items for sale in the house." In retrospect — actually, as I was sitting in Trinity Church on Easter — I began to wonder why you had to be involved in the furniture end of the house sale — what a headache. And Charlie confirmed — it is the worst complication. But you soldiered on and Lillie finally made her choices.
"We have heard from our next door neighbors, Shelly and Bob Friedman, that the Mayersons are thrilled and that the parents are very pleased with their son and daughter in law’s purchase. So everyone is happy and it is done.
"Thank you Laura!
"With admiration and deep appreciation,"
—Cokie and Lee
