"We highly recommend Lara to prospective home buyers. She is organized and patient and well informed. She is especially knowledgable about the Locust Point/Riverside/Federal Hill areas. She answered all of our questions and offered additional information that we didn’t think to ask. She was genuinely interested in seeing that we had a successful and positive buying experience. When the building and lending process became complex, she was with us every step of the way. In addition to acting as our buyers agent, she also helped us find a suitable tenant for our home in the county. Her experience in the rental business was invaluable for us, as we are now first-time landlords. Lara handled the marketing, showings, applications, tenant screening, and paperwork, all for a very reasonable fee. We enjoyed working with Lara, and we are now happy to be her neighbor." -John and Shari Shea, Locust Point
"As first-time home-buyers, we found Lara’s experience and knowledge of all things “Baltimore” to be a huge benefit. We were extremely impressed with Lara’s familiarity with the city’s neighborhoods and the pulse of the market. Lara worked with us to explore exactly what we were looking for, and once we made those decisions we found that she has an eagle eye for new listings that matched our criteria perfectly. Lara is incredibly easy to work with, welcomed questions, and gracefully and patiently shepherded us through the process. We could not have been more pleased with our experience working with Lara, and will eagerly recommend her to friends." -Jon and Jeannie Burd, Bolton Hill
“Working with Lara was a great pleasure; her professionalism, knowledge and insight was invaluable to us in selling our house in Patterson Park. We had a tight timeframe to sell and we weren’t sure everything could be done in time. Lara guided us through the entire maze with advice covering everything from paint color and what renovation/decoration projects to complete, through coordination of open days and viewings, all the way through the contract negotiation process to closing. Lara managed to get our house on the market and under offer in record time, and her constant objectivity and good sense were essential in dealing with all the issues that had to be dealt with before closing. Lara went far beyond the call of duty on our behalf, and we would recommend her strongly to anybody looking to buy or sell Baltimore.” - Bernard McDonald and Tina Bridges, Patterson Park
"Lara is a person who never quits and who is always looking for a creative way to make the listing better and to come up with new ideas as well as focusing on the tried and true methods. She knows that hard work is what sells houses, and she maintains a cheery and positive attitude to go with her mastery of the neighborhood and her outstanding knowledge of the market." -Ed Houff, Locust Point
"We recently worked with Lara to purchase our first home, and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Baltimore City. She was very knowledgeable about the city neighborhoods we were interested in, and was able to recommend several homes within our price range that matched our criteria. Lara was also incredibly helpful and informative, all while not being pushy. She gave us the tools to fall in love with our new home and then helped us with all our financing and purchasing questions, including the home inspection and closing logistics. We recommend her highly and will certainly work with her again." -Lars and Melissa Johanson, Federal Hill
"Working with Lara Faulkner was like working with a close, trusted friend. She truly listened to me and understood exactly what I wanted for my first home. As a neophyte home buyer, Lara was a godsend! With infinite patience, she answered or anticipated my every question and explained the process each step of the way. Her knowledge of Baltimore and of the surrounding areas was wonderful as well; she could point out the closest market, talk about local community events, or any number of things in each area where I looked. Lara’s dedication is only surpassed by her professionalism- beyond being well-prepared for each appointment, she knew the nuances of each property and knew exactly what questions to ask the sellers. Through Lara’s diligence and work with all parties involved, we were able to close ahead of schedule; a convenience to both the seller and myself. Her help did not end at closing; Lara has been a valuable resource of local information since I moved and is continually in touch with me to make sure that everything is still going smoothly. I will recommend Lara to everyone I know who is in search of a realtor. I sincerely believe that my home-buying experience would not have been nearly so pleasurable as it was if I had worked with anyone other than Lara." -Samantha Moyer, Mt Vernon
