If I don’t have children, why should I care about a community’s schools?

Even if you don't have school-age children, schools matter to almost everyone. A 2013 realtor.com® survey of nearly 1,000 prospective homebuyers showed that 91% said school boundaries were important in their search. The same study found that half of homebuyers are willing to pay more than their budget, and more than half would give up a bedroom or garage to get into the right school. Homes in better districts tend to enjoy more price stability and sell more quickly than homes in less desirable school districts. At beverly-hanks.com, each home listed for sale is linked to each school's report card as reported by the independent website education.com.

Yvonne Ray

Lauri kept us in the loop with every aspect of this process, telling us what to expect at every turn. And she was spot-on. Being able to sign documents on line without visiting the office was fabulous, as we were outside the country when the offer came through. Lauri worked with us exclusively during that tense period of negotiations, which kept our nerves down and allowed for quick communications between the parties. Knowing this was an estate sale, Lauri was very compassionate about our emotional attachment to the house. She navigated us through those feelings with understanding and patience. She never rushed us through any part of the process, allowing us time and space when we needed a moment to digest the loss of our family member. Lauri was more than willing to go the extra mile, even when things happened that were new to her. She jumped right in, figured out what she needed to know, made what seemed like a thousand phone calls, resolved the situation and reported back to us at every step. Lauri invited us to be involved at whatever level we wished to be, but offered to take care of it all, if that was what we wanted. And it was. And so she did.

We will recommend her to friends and family for sure!

Lauri Palko was with us every step of the way,on the purchase of our home. From the first offer through the signing of all documents. She took time from her busy day to go with us to view the property several times. Walked me through all the documents and made sure I understood all contents. She spent time with septic workers to make sure all work was complete. She followed up on all repairs. Gave us contacts to use after we move in for minor repairs,yard work etc. She put us in contact with the right morgage broker,inspectors,and even referred a rental company to our land lords to manage our current rental property. I would use Lauri Palko again, and recommend her to family and friends who are looking to purchase a new home. We could not have assked for a better agent to guide us through this very stressful time, she would speak with us and calm us down when we felt stressful and assured us all was going to be ok. That meant more than anything, just some calm in the storm. We could have not asked for a better broker or friend.

Lauri is by far the best agent we've ever worked with, and we've bought/sold 4 houses. She is stellar in regards to communication, follow through, knowledge of contracts, processes,and other legalities, and simply goes above and beyond to represent her clients' interests. I would trust Lauri with any real estate transaction, hands down. Lauri rocks!!! We only wish we could have had her represent us buying our house in Tennessee. I pretty much said it all in my previous comments. Lauri is a steady ship in a stressful sea of moving and selling a house. Brandie was very helpful and prompt when Lauri was out of town. She even answered our emails on a Saturday night.

During the entire process of selling my rental property Lauri made me feel as though I was her only customer. She anticpated and usually addressed any question or issues that I had during each phase of listing, showing, contracts, repairs and closing. I was an out of town seller so Lauri was basically doing all of the coordinating on my behalf with the tenants and did so in a very professional and caring manner.

I worked with Lauri when I was a Realtor at Century 21. I was always impressed with her high standards, dedication, intelligence, and most of all, friendliness. We talked to Lauri a couple of years ago when my husband and I were deciding to sell our rental property. Even though we could not commit at the time, Lauri took the time to do a CMA and kept us informed of housing prices in the Asheville area. When we were ready to sell, we did not hesitate to contract with Lauri to market our house. Lauri was always calm and professional during the marketing, negotiating, and closing of this property. It even closed a week ahead of time which is always a good sign of a deal gone well. Is there an "excellent plus plus" for knowledgeable? Lauri's knowledge of real estate, loan acquisition, timing in a negotiation is just fantastic. She should be teaching classes, she is that good.

We cannot say enough about Lauri Palko. She went above and beyond our expectations. She is a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to working with Lauri in the future. Lauri received an email within her firm about a client looking for a home that matched our home's description. Lauri contacted us immediately, and was at our doorstep within an hour to help us prepare for the initial showing. At that time, we listed our home at a price we were very comfortable with. Within hours, Lauri had an offer. During the entire process, Lauri kept us apprised on the progression of our closing. She also gave us helpful information for rental homes, properties for sale, movers, and contractors. As we were doing some last minute preparation, our lawn mower broke. Lauri made arrangements for someone to come out to finish the work we started. Lauri's calm and pleasant demeanor kept stressful moments at bay. We know Lauri had other clients, but her undivided attention to our needs made us feel that we were her only client. Lauri is a tremendous asset to the Beverly-Hanks team, and we will highly recommend her to anyone that is in the market of selling or buying a home.
