We are extremely pleased with Laura Stavola and her associates at Sotheby’s International Realty. Laura advised us on how to price our listing competitively with those in our area. Sure enough, our property sold and closed in less than two months, wildly exceeding our expectations.


Laura Stavola was so helpful! I moved to Florida from Michigan and had no idea where I wanted to buy. Laura gave me a tour of Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota and helped me narrow down my choices. I love my new home in Lakewood Ranch and am really looking forward to make this area my home. Thanks Laura!

We had a great experience working with Laura while we built our new home. She was with us every step of the way and when ever we had a question she was right there to help us. She made building a home in the Country Club a pleasurable experience. We would highly recommend her!

R Turner

We would highly recommend Laura Stavola. She was such a pleasure to work with and she is incredibly knowledgeable about the Lakewood Ranch area. She walked us through the entire buying process and answered all of our questions. A great experience.

Laura is a phenomenal realtor! I sent her hundreds of homes for us to look at and she was able to take all the things I liked in a home, all the things we needed to accommodate a family with six children, and pair it with the knowledge she has in buying and selling real-estate and find our dream home. She and I spent weeks pouring over homes in several
different areas and drove to visit at least 75 homes! Her dedication to the process that I needed in checking out every possibility landed us the home of our dreams! We have lived in our home for six months now and as we settle in more and more we still can’t believe we call such a beautiful place home!

Laura was a true professional from the listing of our home through the sale. She was very responsive to our requests, communicating in a timely fashion, and keeping us informed throughout our sales process. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent for buying or selling a home in the Lakewood Ranch/Sarasota marketplace.

Laura made the process of selling our home very smooth. She handled the negotiation of our contract with professionalism and was able to sell our home in a timely manner and get the price we wanted. We appreciate her honesty throughout the process and feedback she provided after each showing.

Laura is a caring and detailed professional through and through. Her experience in new home construction is invaluable and gives her the edge when the negotiations start. She is very thorough and will work very hard to meet the clients expectation. This is not a hobby ,rather a passion and her knowledge and expertise in the industry set her apart.

Very rarely in life do you come across a true professional whose elite skill-set is matched by their integrity and compassion. That is how my wife and I would describe our real estate agent, Laura Stavola. She is extremely knowledgeable, intelligent and caring. We felt well-represented and taken care of. She removed much of the stress of the entire experience. Her intimate knowledge of the general area, market, builders and specific neighborhoods was impressive. Laura listened to our needs and was patient with us as we went through the process of finding the right home. We found the right home because we found the right agent. If you are looking for a true professional with elite ability, look no further than Laura Stavola!
