About Me

With my experiences in many aspects of real estate, including working as a general contractor, I understand the importance of being an informed customer.  And I know sometimes the process of buying or selling a home can be daunting.  Therefore, my first priority is to keep you closely informed in the process of finding your home.  Let my confidence and passion for real estate guide you in your quest for your new home, your own personal sanctuary.

As a Nebraska native, I believe in the opportunities of this area.  Omaha is a wonderful place to live, play and raise a family.  Throughout my life I have seen the positive changes which have led to great opportunities for our city, including the College World Series at TD Ameritrade Park, The CenturyLink Center and the revitalization of areas like Midtown Crossing and Askarben Village.  I am excited to see what the next chapter of Omaha will bring.

I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from the University of Nebraska – Omaha.  I have ten years of experience as a high school guidance counselor.  My counseling skills provide unique assets to the real estate environment. If I can help teenagers survive high school, I can certainly help you overcome any obstacle that may be encountered during the buying and selling process.

Call, text or email me anytime.  I look forward to working with you.
 

Professional Profile

My #1 concern is doing what is best for my clients.  I won't negotiate a deal that I don't feel good about. 

Testimonials:

"My house sold very quickly. Because of Laura's contacts, the house had an offer in just a couple of days. I was moving out of town and Laura was great about getting things scheduled (such as electrician & plumber) so I did not need to worry about those. I would highly recommend using Laura for selling a house."  -Linda O.

"Working with Laura felt like working with a friend.  We really enjoyed looking at houses with her at our side.  As first time buyers, we required additional attention and patience from our realtor.  Laura far exceeded these needs and got us into our first house!  We are so happy with the decision we made and we wouldn't have wanted to go through the process with anyone else.  We have found our life-long realtor."  -Tom & Kim Z.

"Laura has the two most important attributes of a realtor:  knowledge and accessibility.  She worked diligently to sell our home and provided valuable expertise in finding the home that was right for us.  When it's time for us to sell our house, Laura will be the first person we call." -James and Anne C.

"When I first started to look for a house I was unsure of what to do or even what to look for.  Laura made me feel very comfortable in the buying process.  She made sure that what I wanted was in the houses I toured.  She listened to my requeststo make sure I was getting the house I wanted.  I never felt pressured by Laura and when I needed information on a house I got it as soon as possible. I was very pleased with the home I got and Laura was a huge part of that process. - Michael B. 

"I would and have recommended Laura Powers to my family and friends.  As a first time homebuyer I felt confident and comfortable when we found my home.  Laura was very supportive and knowledgable about the home buying process.  She coached and walked me through every aspect of the process, any questions or concerns she explained to me as many times as I needed until I understood.  She has gone the extra mile to make this a fun, enjoyable, and easy experience.  I felt confident that Laura was always looking out for my best interest.  Even when I was discouraged and thinking I would never find the right home, Laura assured me that the right home for me would come along.  I will go back to Laura when I start my adventure of buying another home." - Kaitlin R.
