In March, 2015, my wife and I began considering the purchase of a Florida property as a winter residence. Through the website, we were contacted by Laura Beck. My wife worked remotely with Laura on a weekly basis learning about the possibilities in Palm Beach County and refining out search criteria. Between June, 2015 and December, 2015, we made several trips to the area during which Laura tirelessly accompanied us on multiple daily showings of listed properties. In the process Laura was totally professional and accommodating. Laura was always energetic and personable. Her comments were informative, insightful and helpful to our decisional process. Ultimately, we purchased a home in Valencia Isles. Having lived in our winter home for several months, I can say we are very happy with our decision.

I am writing this letter to let you know how much I appreciated the excellent work and dedication performed by Laura Beck. Laura was very proactive in assisting me long distance in locating an acceptable short-term rental condo in Highland Beach, Fla. She not only went above and beyond with utilizing her time and prompt replies to my questions, but also was very personable and her positive attitude left a very good impression with me to not only recommend her to my friends, but to utilize her skills and knowledge if I should need a Realtor in the future. Being a business owner, I know how hard it is to employ top-notch people to represent your firm. Laura is definitely one of those "keepers" and I am sure her value will bring not only great personal and financial rewards to herself, but to [your agency] as well.
Laura and BJ are quite an amazing team. They really love what they do because it shows in their continuous effort that they put forth with each and every client. They pay close attention to details and really listen to what you want. I know this because they found me my dream home in one day. They didn't just find me my home sell it to me and then disappear; they were with me every single step of the way. If they both couldn't be there then Laura would be there for everything from the inspection to the closing. Just knowing that they were only a phone call or text away always helped me sleep soundly at night. They went above and beyond what most realtors do for their clients. They left an amazing impression on me and I have referred them to my friends and family. Buying a home is one of the biggest and hardest things in life... hire 2 pros that can help you through all of the hassles. I always say 2 brains are better than one!
We wanted to thank you for all your help in the recent sale of our Dad's house in Boynton Beach, Florida. The personal attention you gave us with getting it ready for sale was truly unheard of and we greatly appreciate it. Your guidance, knowledge and recommendations of reputable contractors, exterminators, junk removers in the area proved to be very professional and got the job done. Everyone constantly updated us with pictures, text messages and phone calls and the speed and results were amazing. We were also amazed at your availability for telephone calls and emails during the day, evenings and weekends. From our hearts, my sisters Leslie and Karen, my brother Eric and I really appreciate everything. We will gladly recommend you to anyone who needs help selling or buying a home. They would be lucky to use someone who is so absolutely committed to their clients as you are. Great service like yours is not easily found anywhere! Please keep in touch as we would love to see you when we visit Florida.

I'm writing this letter to shear the amazing experience we had working with Laura Beck-Levitt. Our son Kyle was living in Florida with a family friend who turned out to be no friend at all. This person threw our 19 year old son out on the street and made him homeless. We as his parents live in Massachusetts and could do nothing. Kyle had contacted Laura prior to being thrown out just to start looking for his own place. At that point things where fine where he had been staying. Kyle was put out on the street with no place to go. I contacted Laura and she was so helpful and understood the urgency of the situation. She responded with listings for us to look at in his price range and close to his work. Our son found a cottage that would be perfect for him and Laura immediately jumped into action setting up a showing for the place and it was just what he wanted. Laura then provided all the paper work for Kyle's back ground check, credit check and lease document. The entire process went very smooth and fast. During the process of checking documents and credit checks I wanted my son off the streets until I could fly him home. I booked him a room at a local hotel so he could have a place to stay with a clean bed and hot shower. However, when Kyle went to check in they would not let him have the room because he was under the age of 21. This is where Laura really stepped up and went above and beyond to help our son. She went to the hotel put the reservation in her name paid for it with her credit card and gave the keys to Kyle. We were shocked to say the least at her act of kindness towards our son. She is truly one of a kind. Kyle was so happy that a perfect stranger would show so much compassion to a person she really did not know at all. Our son gave Laura the cash for the hotel and spent 3 nights in a nice warm safe hotel thanks to Laura. Laura is truly a Real Estate Agent with a huge heart. The entire deal was done within a weeks' time. This was very impressive. During that week, we had Kyle fly home so he would have a nice place to stay. This is where Laura stepped up again. We had wanted to send things down to her for Kyle's new place as a surprise. Laura had us ship everything to her home and she would present Kyle with the gifs that my wife and I had sent. Laura also went to the extent of having his place cleaned from top to bottom as a house warming gift to my son at her own expense. I have never dealt with a Real Estate Agent that has gone to the extent that Laura has for us. For that we will be forever grateful. I am happy to say Laura is more of a friend to this family then realtor now. Your firm is lucky to have a person like Laura representing you. She is defiantly a credit to her profession and she will definitely come highly recommended by the Smith family.

I would like to take the opportunity to share the wonderful experience my wife and I enjoyed while working with Laura and BJ on the purchase of our new home in Wycliffe. They were a great asset in helping us find the perfect vacation (and ultimately retirement) home and they did so in a most pleasant, patient and professional manner. My wife and I are experienced buyers who have bought and/or sold more than 20 times over the course of our 40+-year marriage. I can't say enough about Laura's and BJ's professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections in the area. I have no doubt that they bring these qualities to the table for all their clients, not just in the real estate transaction, but in the transition to their new home/community. Our entire experience in this home buying effort has been positive and smooth based in no small part to Laura’s and BJ's help and guidance. We are pleased to recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They are hands down one of the best teams in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again they will be our first choice in real estate agents.

Laura is one of the most honest people I have had the pleasure of working with. She takes the time to listen to what you want and then turns it into reality. The first time Laura and I walked into the home that we ended up purchasing, I was on the phone and not really paying attention yet; but all of the sudden Laura grabs my arm and says, "this is it" and it truly was. We hadn't viewed a lot of houses, but during every showing she gave me her honest opinion about the house, whether she could see us in it, and money. She was very open and honest during the whole process, it was like being with a long time friend. As long as I am in South Florida, Laura and BJ Levitt will be my go to. They got us the best deal and worked hard to get us everything we wanted.

3yrs ago I met Laura & she worked with me long distance to help me find my new home. She went out of her way to get me what I wanted. She is so friendly & knowledgeable about the area we were looking in unfortunately for health reasons we had to sell that home and once again Laura was there with usthrough all the ins and outs, sold our condo for us in less than 24 days and it went smoothly. She is very dedicated to the person she is working with 110%. We recommend Laura and BJ very highly for anyone looking for a new home.
Searching and then ultimately buying a new home became a very positive experience because of Laura's Real estate experience and knowledge. I plan to encourage all of my contacts to work with her...and or her agency.
