Laura and her team were great throughout the process of buying and selling our home.

I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the west Michigan area.

I felt very comfortable with five star realty.

Everyone I dealt with treated me like family. I never felt pressured. It was more like a good friend helping me find my new home. I would recommend five star to family and friends any time. A special thanks goes to my realtor James Newhouse, He was accommodating, friendly and worked very hard to help me find the place to start the next chapter in my life.

Christina was super helpful and so easy to talk to!

She was always able to talk and never missed a phone call! She made sure that we bought the right house for us with no issues. She’s even checked in with us after we have closed to see if we need anything. I would recommend her to anyone! Made our buying process a breeze!

"This is my second time using Laura and Pat.

They are exactly what real estate agents should be. I have so many friends who tell me horror stories of not being able to sell their homes, or they have had to do a bunch of work themselves for the sale of their home- my first response is you must not have a very good agent, mine handles all of that. They have made the selling of my home as simple and pain-free as possible and sold my house in one day for over asking price. They also helped me to purchase a home a few years back when I had limited time to find one. Most of all, they actually cared about me and helping me find the right solution for my situation. I won’t use anyone else."

I did not know Allie before we recently purchase our home.

I’m still amazed at how helpful she was and still is. We had a few issues to work through with the owner and she was right there for us. I’ve never had a realtor who was as helpful. I have only good things to say about Allie.

lacrmane

Great person to work with and very excited to help whomever to obtain the home the person looking desires!

Very comfortable with making the communication gap with the seller and the buyer and with any other related gap that may be involved with the buying process!

d petrekovich

Christina was so awesome and made the experience of buying our first home as painless as possible.

At no point during the looking/ buying of the house did we feel overwhelmed. Highly recommend

Cody Anes

I was looking for a home in the Fremont area and saw a home a couple doors down from my daughters home.

I called that real estate and was hooked up with James Newhouse. Although I did not get the bid on that particular house James set forth looking for the perfect home for me. James made the journey very satisfying. He showed several houses and was always very punctual. A few times we pulled in at the same time to a house and I live 170 miles away. When it all came to the final home he had me figured out as to exactly what I was looking for. We found it and He worked with my Bank every step of the way for a smooth closing. I thank you James for all the work you and The Ensley team did for me and I Highly recommend The Ensley team and James Newhouse when looking to purchase real estate. Btw. Great last name James

Lee Ann Brady

Absolute top shelf.

She’s a down to earth person with extensive knowledge of the Greenville/Cedar Springs/Rockford area. She nailed the listing price with area comps and accurately forecast comparables for appraisal. Wonderful to work with.

James Lockwood

Patrick Ensley has been amazing to work with.

During our home search he found us several options to look at based on exactly what we were looking for. Yesterday he met us in a town well over an hour away and showed us 3 wonderful houses. On the way home we stopped for gas and I went to pull up my favorite of the 3 just to admire it again and another listing had popped up during our drive home that had been on the market for just SIXTEEN MINUTES that I wanted to see. I called Patrick right away who was almost home at the time and said can we get into this house TODAY. I admit that was a little demanding and it was New Years Eve so I wasnt expecting to actually get in there. Patrick called me less than 5 minutes later and said to meet him there in 45 minutes. We all headed back to the town we had just left and looked at this amazing farm house that was handicap ready (I have MS) with a brand new pole barn that my husband loved, We knew before we left that we wanted to put in an offer. and we arrived home to all of the paperwork to sign. He had included in the offer that we required an answer by 8pm that evening. At about 6:30 on NYE they had accepted our offer and by 8pm we were the new owners of this amazing house and would be able to take possission in around 30 days at closing. Thank you Patrick for making all of this happen so quickly and with a smile on your face the entire time. We are now planning to list our house with Laura once we are all moved out of our current home. Thank you Team Ensley for being with us on this journey, I could not have been happier...

Spring and Neil Hobbs

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Jim!

Words can’t describe how thankful Chad and I are for you! Thank you for helping us buy our first home

Keeley Kading

The Ensley team work very hard to sell our home.

The team made sure my husband and I where included in everything. We live in one state and where selling a home in another state. Not as easy as one would think. The Ensley team took that challenge and made the sale happen. Thank you everyone.

Tina Seymour

Christina worked with my wife and I for over two years to find a dream lake home meeting our criteria.

Good lake home property is sold almost immediately, so it was essential that Christina stay on top of the market and get us involved immediately. We looked at several properties and Christina came to know what we were looking for in the house, property, and type of lake. She called us to view a home that just went on the market. It turned out to be just what we wanted. We looked at the house on a Saturday. Bids were due on Monday morning. She worked with us against competing bids, and we had a purchase agreement on Monday. Christina took time to get to know us, our likes and dislikes, and she worked hard to get us into the home we will love. She has a friendly outdoing personality and I highly recommend her.

Joe

Laura has worked and lived in the Cedar Springs area for many years.

When my husband and I decided we we're ready to sell and buy a new home we knew The Ensley's we're the team for us. I had never heard a negative thing about them. Our realtor team made the process of buying and selling go smoothly. Everyone was kind and helpful. You can't go wrong with The Ensley's

Trisha Dart

Laura and her team were amazing!

! They are knowledgeable, thorough and have excellent customer service. When I inquired about a house Laura called me right away. She was flexible with her availability to meet our needs and when things needed to move quickly she gets things done. She has multiple trustworthy resources to make the process of buying a house seem-less and easy.

Jodi Vanderlin

We loved Allie!

Searching for houses seems very stressful, if you don't have the right help! Allie helped us every step of the way, we are first time home owners and she answered all of our questions and was able to explain things so we could understand. In the end Allie helped us find our dream home! We recommend her 100%!

zuser201

Christina did an amazing job selling and marketing my house especially during the coronavirus.

She is an awesome realtor. Christina makes people feel comfortable selling there house and helping with negotiating prices. I would highly recommend using her as your agent.

Kathy

I worked with James for a long time and he was beyond helpful and dedicated to help me and my children find our dream home!

!! Thank you so much James!!

Mandy Van Buskirk

Christina was always available for questions and was quick to get us into showings we requested.

Her people skills are beyond amazing! She is very knowledgeable in so many ways and utilized all of her resources to make our buying and selling processes smooth!

Jeffery

From the time we decided to sell we knew we were going to use this team.

Laura personally visited our home to help us with what we should do to get our maximum return. We did everything she suggested and we had an offer within a week of listing. The peace of mind that comes with using this team is unbeatable. Thank you Ensley team!

Phillipa

From the start to the finish Laura and her team were on it.

The same day I contacted them she went to look at my property to give me her opinion. I liked her confidence in selling my place so I pulled the trigger and signed up. Her assistant was all over getting documents put together for signing. I believe Laura had confidence in me as well by ordering professional pictures before all docs were signed. I was very impressed how fast they had my property listed on the MLS! Due to the nature of the property and more so, my jealous and self serving neighbors trying to sabotage my sale, offers were not coming in like we had anticipated. Laura wasn’t quick to suggest lowering the price. When she did however, I found the timing and amount to be appropriate. At no point did I feel rushed by her so she could be off to the next sale. We did end up finding a buyer! :-) Closing was a long arduous task but had nothing to do with the Ensley team. My land contract holder was very difficult to work with along with her so called financial advisor who only communicates via snail mail. That’s right, no email or faxing and doesn’t even put his phone number out there easily. Hard to believe in the twenty first century a “professional “ conducts business like this:-) Shannon with team Ensley along with Sara from Chicago title persevered through the closing despite the difficulties caused from my land contract holder and her “professional “. Nice job ladies! High five to Laura and put another win up on the board for Team Ensley!

Aaron

Christina is awesome!

Her personality is a huge help in the process, she is so easy to talk to, was able to relate to us in so many ways and cared so much about making sure we were in the loop constantly and if anything went wrong, Christina was already on top of it. Thankful to have bought our familes first home with Christina.

Amanda Vazquez

She was quick to respond right from the first contact when I was looking for a new house.

Michelle

Laura helped me with several foreclosed homes!

She did more leg work than I ever expected to try to get me where I wanted. Unfortunately, to no fault of hers, I was unable to purchase. I will however use her services when my credit is back up!!

Tiffany

Christina was amazing to work with.

She was always there for when we had questions and whenever we wanted to look at a house she was always there to make the appointment for us to look at it right away. If it wasn't for Christina we wouldn't have found our forever home.

A Middlebrook

Where to begin with this wonderful Real Estate Professional.

.. We were first brought together trying to get a VA home loan in April of 2020. We live in Sacramento, CA and found a beautiful house in Michigan that we wanted to purchase. We were connected to Christina through our Mortgage Company's Battle Buddy's word of mouth. We reached out to Christina and told her we wanted to make an offer on the house. She talked us through all of our questions and helped us decide what we thought was a fair offer. That same day Covid-19 hit. The sellers took the house off the market and we were stuck in a holding pattern...for what seemed like years, but was 2 months. Christina worked diligently to try to get us this house. She kept telling us, "We will get you in that house!" When we spoke to Christina on the phone she was always upbeat and positive and there was such a relaxing nature in her voice, that we always knew somehow, things would turn out! In July, we became overwhelmed with the waiting for the pandemic restrictions to lift, the sellers to be comfortable and sell, and realized it was just not meant to be. Just days prior we found another house that we fell deeply in love with. We were working with a Mortgage Company our here in CA, and unfortunately, we received a horrible appraisal and unless we could come up with a HUGE amount of $$ the VA Loan was not going to work. Long story short....we were told by that Lender to "Find another house and move on". We were heart-broken and outraged and called Christina with our concerns. She too could hardly believe what had happened. We asked if she knew of any other Mortgage Company that could possibly work with us. I true Christina fashion, she did in fact, have someone in mind. We had no reason to doubt her and were about as hopeless feeling as one could feel at this point, so we "trusted her with our hopes and dreams and had her put us in contact with this person. Not only was Christina our Realtor...somehow, she became our friend over these past months. I believe in my heart that she felt as invested in this house as we did. Her compassion was beyond any I have ever felt from a professional. She took our broken souls and made them come back to life again...and along with that came Hope and smiles! Together with Christina and our new Mortgage Lender......they came together so quickly and effortlessly (from our end anyhow) we were able to close on our dream home TODAY!!! Instead of tears of sadness and loss....we now have tears of absolute joy and satisfaction that someone cared enough to go that extra step and help put us in the home our hearts desire!!! I honestly cannot praise Christina enough! That smile that you see in her photo is felt through long distant phone calls when you speak to her! She is available whenever questions and/or concerns arise...and goes way beyond what she is required to do. She is passionate about her job and we are both so blessed and humbled God placed her in our path...and anyone that is lucky enough to attain her to buy (and/or sell) a house is a fool not to jump at the chance! Forever grateful....

Elizabeth Maxson

My husband and I had the BEST experience working with Laura Ensley and her staff.

Everyone is so friendly and they treat you just like family. My husband and I have complete opposite tastes in homes and Laura was able to find us the perfect home. She was dedicated to making sure we found our forever home. She was very patient with us and would respond to text or phone calls immediately. If you are looking to purchase a home, the Ensley Team is the way to go!!

Sarah McDonald

The Ensley Team did a remarkable job helping us prepare our home for sale, and work through the process of offers, acceptance, and closing.

They went to bat all over the county helping this first-time home-shopper hone in on just exactly what we really wanted. Across many showings they helped us understand our options, recognize possible issues, and weigh the pros and cons. Laura and Pat are extremely patient, wildy passionate, and powerfully influential when it matters most. I proudly recommend them and their entire team for both your selling and buying needs.

Renee Wyman

I am extremely pleased for everything you have done for me.

I will most definitely recommend you to friends and family. Thanks for everything!
