Testimonials and References 

Here are some quotes from clients who've entrusted me with their home sales and purchases.  They've learned first hand that I put their needs first.  I offer unparalleled service, market knowledge, financial expertise, and attentiveness.

Laura was recommended to us by both family and friends, leaving us with very high expectations.  Navigating a "remote" move is not the easiest or most common, but Laura handled it with professionalism and ease.  Laura is the absolute best!  While the market created its fair share of challenges, Laura helped us navigate a number of bidding wars and always had our best interests in mind.  When we finally found our perfect home, we knew, in part, because Laura was also in love with it.  Over the 3 months we worked with her, we developed so much trust and got to know her so well that it was like dealing with a family member.  We will continue to recommend Laura to anyone we know who is moving to the area or relocating to a new home, again, she is the best!  Mary Ellen Davenport, Ridgefield

Working with Laura was a dream. She was incredibly knowledgeable, very professional, and most importantly - honest. She did a fantastic job with process negotiations and we couldn’t be happier with our experience. Recommending her to everyone we know!  Jordan McDowell, Ridgefield

Laura Freed Ancona is an outstanding realtor and a pleasure to work with.She provided excellent advice on preparing the house for sale. She and Christy Kinsman did a beautiful job staging the house. She was always responsive to my questions and concerns and managed offers wisely. Laura expertly navigated some difficult circumstances, always remaining professional with the goal of closing the sale. She was extremely generous with her time, overseeing some of the necessary repairs. She had a good working relationship with the other realtor involved and all service professionals. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone planning to sell their home.  Janine Gordon, Ridgefield

During this chaotic time when the housing market is booming, we were so fortunate to find our perfect home in Ridgefield, CT. This was all thanks to Laura.  Once she knew what we were looking for, Laura utilized her years of experience and contacts to ensure that we purchased the home of our dreams without sacrificing even one "must have."  On the contrary, I feel we got even more than we expected. We couldn't be happier.  She is not only a dependable and knowledgable real estate agent, but also a  key resource for all things house related (e.g recommendations for well water, painter, contractor, etc.) or Ridgefield related (e.g. recs for restaurants, stores, etc.)  Laura is honest, dependable, and amiable to work with. We highly recommend her for anyone looking to move to the Ridgefield area.  Kathryn Lenti, Ridgefield

Laura Freed-Ancona did a wonderful job understanding our needs and exactly what we were looking for. As volatile as the market was she was a calming voice in helping us land the perfect house.  Chris Svendsen, Redding

New to Connecticut, I was very lucky to hook up with Laura.  Even though I was still living in California when I began looking for a place to buy, Laura always took my calls and was ready to prepare me for house hunting within my budget and finding the style of home I needed.  When I finally arrived in Connecticut Laura began to show me homes and was available any time of the day. It didn’t take long to find the perfect home for my needs. It was smooth sailing from beginning to end.  Professional, very knowledgeable and always personable, Laura was a lucky find.  If you are looking to buy I highly recommend Laura for your house-hunting needs.  Kerry Van Stockum, Redding

I found Laura Freed Anconna to be well organized, businesslike and responsive. She seems very experienced and well connected. The contractors she suggested for renovations on the house we sold were all competent and well priced. Her staff all did their work competently and on time. And in her marketing campaign for the house, I think she really left no stone unturned. One buyer failed to obtain a mortgage. Laura was on the job the next day and had another lined up pretty quickly. She was a pleasure to deal with. I just recommended her to someone in Old Greenwich who would like to sell their house and buy something in Ridgefield or Redding.  Frederick Engel, Redding

Laura exhibits everything you want from the best of realtors. No nonsense, no BS, to the point. Confidence that she WILL sell your house. This makes the seller relaxed and instills confidence in them (buyer). I honestly don’t know how she does it. We were very fortunate to have her. Thank you Laura and William Pitt Sotheby's. Paul Miner, Redding

Laura is first rate. We recommend her with gratitude and wholehearted enthusiasm She understood our house and its value. She understood what we wanted. She was brilliant at staging, photography, and presentation. Her attention never failed. And she got us to a successful conclusion. Stratford Sherman, Ridgefield

Laura was a pleasure to work with with!!!! She knows everything! real estate, local vendors at her finger tips, and how to get the deal done always working all the different parties to get to the finish line.  Its not my first house and i know its not easy to be in the middle of buyer, seller,  banks and lawyers.  It was a pleasure working with Laura!  Josh Cohen, Ridgefield

I can't say enough about Laura!!!  She sold our house in less than a week!  The staging of our house was amazing....she transformed the look and we loved it and so did everyone else.   She was easy to work with, very communicative and on top of her game. Lisa Gallichio, Redding

I highly recommend my agent Laura Freed Ancona. She is a professional and resourceful agent. She always answered our questions or concerns promptly. She never tried to push us to make decisions, but instead, helped us to evaluate the various situations and make the appropriate offer. Her  perseverance eventually made the deal happen. Without her help, we won’t be able to have our current house.Thank you, Laura!  Roger Lui, Ridgefield

Laura was always available for our many questions.  I can not describe how many positive comments about the beautiful staging she did of our home.  And most importantly she knew how to be supportive during complicated situations.  We are very grateful for her advice and guidance and expertise!  Virginia Bosco, Redding

After working with Laura, it is no surprise to me that she has a leading market share of Redding real estate sales. The old school way of list it & leave it may have worked back in the day when we bought our house, but everything is different today. If you are really interested in selling your  house, talk to Laura and let her advise you on how to make it happen. After she took over for us, our house was sold in 1 month. The added bonus is that it is a real pleasure to work with Laura who still embraces the old school concepts of service & integrity. Phil Mangieri, Redding

Laura has so much experience and knowledge in this industry. She was absolutely invaluable in our home purchase decisions as well as in our previous home sale decisions/processes. Have worked with her for years and is our absolute “go-to” on all real estate topics. Allison Pinkham, Ridgefield

We felt very lucky to have met Laura and highly recommend her.  She was always available to respond to any of our questions and concerns, is very knowledgeable, professional and positive in her interactions. She used a team of professionals to market and help sell our home. She had great advice and  knows the Ridgefield/Redding market very well.  Beyond that, she is a caring, genuine and warm person that made this stressful process easier. William Crofut, Redding

Laura did an outstanding job of marketing our home.  She helped with staging and promoting the house with agents in town.  Once we received an offer, Laura worked selfishly to ensure that we would get a fair offer in a difficult market.  I would recommend Laura to any home owner looking for a  professional and committed real estate agent. Marc Tannenbaum, Ridgefield

Laura sold our home fast and easy! We got multiple offers and got our asking price in a week!  She is a master of the real state!  She is passionate, efficient, hard working,  beautiful and full of fun! I enjoyed the entire process working with her. I especially benefited from the staging process  that Laura and her secret helper Christy Kingsman offered. It has changed my life. My home has become more and more beautiful because I am applying what I learned from them in the art of organizing and living.  I am forever grateful to her :)!  Laura will help you get what you want artfully :)!   Ping Xu, Ridgefield

Laura is great to work with and gets the job done in what has proven to be a tough market.   The photographer she uses is exceptional.  The pictures of my house and grounds were stunning and certainly helped in selling the house. She definitely knows her stuff and I highly recommended her.  Mara Kent, Ridgefield

Laura is the best! She is very responsive, practical, accurate and does it all with a warm, genuine and friendly manner. I wouldn’t trust any other realtor but her. She will be my realtor for life now. She helped us get a great deal. I adore her!  Tara Digirolamo, Ridgefield

Having lived in Ridgefield since 1995, we decided to either renovate our home or purchase a new one. We turned to Laura Freed to help us assess the market and evaluate the option of moving to a more modern home.  Understanding the likelihood that we would stay put and her efforts would go unrewarded, Laura nevertheless spent the time to understand our needs and relentlessly scoured the market to find us a new home.  Laura stayed on top of the market and used her resourcefulness to locate the home of our dreams.  Laura is passionate about customer service and provides the personal attention to details that is no longer common in what is becoming a commodity, volume oriented business.  We highly recommend Laura Freed.  She's not only effective as a realtor, but a pleasure to deal with.  Rosann and Michael Geltzeiler, Ridgefield

Being a home builder in Ridgefield for 29 years, I have had a long close relationship with the Realtor community.  My latest project is a departure from the houses I had been building. I felt that it in turn deserved a departure from the standard boiler plate real estate promotion that is so common these days.  After interviewing six Realtor groups, I decided on Laura Freed. Laura’s fresh perspective, innovative style, contagious enthusiasm, and nearly obsessive work ethic was just what I was looking for.  I am happy to say that she has certainly exceeded my highest expectations.   Michael Mannion, Ridgefield
