MACKENZIE'S CLIENTS ARE SAYING
We worked with Mackenzie to sell our house in the Heights and it could not have gone any smoother! We contacted Mackenzie early on in the process for advice on timing to sell and she gave excellent feedback which helped us time the market appropriately. In the months leading up to listing, she was in continuous contact with us to keep us informed of market trends and comp sales for our consideration. As we prepared for listing, Mackenzie did multiple walk throughs with us to decide what repairs + updates would add the most value to our sale and helped us prioritize work. She also sourced, organized, and coordinated all of the remodel contractors, repair/cleaning crews, and staging company, making sure they knew what we wanted and were efficient in their work. This made the process of getting the house ready to list so much easier for us – there was no stress on our part and we trusted Mackenzie fully to make the same decisions we would make.
Following Mackenzie’s advice, we ended up listing our house for higher than we had originally anticipated due to the market at the time – the showings went very well and we got excellent feedback, particularly on the updates and staging that Mackenzie had recommended. We honestly thought we were “shooting the moon,” and were pleasantly surprised when we had 2 offers within 2 weeks of listing. Once under contract (over asking price), Mackenzie continued to move everything along smoothly and ensured all inspections / repairs were completed and verified. We closed on time and with no issues along the way – a real testament to Mackenzie’s support throughout the entire process. We are so grateful for Mackenzie’s excellent work on our home sale and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Mackenzie has been our realtor for 11+ years, and has helped us with a variety of transactions in the Heights (1 rental, 2 purchases, 4+ residential leases of our home while we lived out of the country). She is extremely attentive, prompt, and accommodating, and always has a positive attitude. She’s used her professional expertise to guide us through a broad range of transactions, and always gave us unbiased advice to ensure we were making the best decision for our family. Every time, the process was seamless, and she went above and beyond to ensure we were completely looked after.
A 5-star review just doesn’t do Mackenzie justice and I cannot recommend her enough. Professional, organized, responsive, and knows the Houston market well. Just completed my 3rd transaction with her (2 sales, 1 purchase) and have had great experiences every single time. So incredibly helpful on all aspects of my recent sale, particularly since I had moved out of town. I am forever grateful for Mackenzie’s expertise and highly highly encourage anyone looking to buy/sell a home to reach out to her!!
All I can say about Mackenzie is that she is AMAZING! She is so organized and goes above and beyond. As a first-time seller, she made the process so easy for me. She gave honest and wonderful advice and she coordinated everything we needed to do, before listing the house. Mackenzie is hard-working, positive, and a true joy and so fun to work with! I will recommend her to anyone and will definitely use her again!
Mackenzie made buying our first home… easy and fun! She walked us through home buying basics, saw countless homes with us over several months (we got cold feet for awhile – no fault of Mackenzie’s!) and helped us decide which house truly met our needs. Not only was she essential in the home finding process, but also the home buying process. The paperwork, negotiations and closing were a breeze thanks for Mackenzie’s organization and business knowledge. In a few words, Mackenzie is punctual, efficient, organized, professional, light-hearted… and just a pleasure to work with. Couldn’t recommend her enough to potential Houston home buyers!
Mackenzie went above and beyond for us when looking for a house. We were moving from out of town and had a limited time to find our first home. She made everything work and had the weekend lined up with houses to see. We found our home and love it thanks to Mackenzie! I recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Mackenzie receives our absolute highest recommendation! Due to a sudden job change we had to move our family of 5 to Houston in a hurry. We essentially had one weekend to be in Houston and find a place before completing our move. We had many constraints including work locations in different parts of the extended Houston area and school preferences for our kids; and we knew very little about the overwhelmingly large city of Houston. Mackenzie went above and beyond before, during, and after our visit to make sure we found the perfect home. She was organized and made it possible for us to see many more houses than we ever thought possible. She truly listened to our needs and desires and helped us find a wonderful place that fit everything! She was extremely knowledgeable and flexible, and patient with our many questions and changes throughout the process as we narrowed down our neighborhood and school preferences. She also served as a true advocate for us in all negotiations. I can’t recommend her highly enough. If you want the best in Houston; use Mackenzie Blair Laine!
Terrific realtor! Very dedicated, spent enormous amounts of time helping us find the right home. Definitely recommend!
