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

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.

We just sold our first house with James, and he's working hard to find us our next one.

Great personal touch and always available for questions or concerns.

Samantha VanSledright

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!

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

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.

Chris Dart

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.

"We were definitely not easy buyers.

We had VERY specific ideas on what we wanted. Laura and her team worked non-stop to show us homes, suggest things that checked all of our boxes and helped us through the buying process every step of the way. I feel like they have become friends, not just our realtors."

Carie Gort

James was wonderful!

My parents used him to sell their house up north and purchase a new one! They are older, and it was a lot for them. He bent over backwards to make the process as easy as possible ! He still stops by occasionally to see the improvements they’re making! Great realtor and even better guy!

Brandy Jones

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

I wish I could rank her 6 or 7 or more stars!

Laura not only sold our house for over asking but also over the appraisal value. She is amazing and knows the market and the areas people are looking. Highly recommend her and her team for any home buying or selling transaction!

Anthony Shaw

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

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

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

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!!

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

I will be the first to say I am not an easy client for anyone.

Laura made selling my house a smooth transaction. Excellent pricing knowledge for area. Highly recommend and will use her to sell my vacant property.

John Carlson

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

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

Very knowledgeable and quick with helping me prepare my house for selling. And selling in less than 10 days. Wonderful company to work with and would highly recommend using Laura and her team. Could not be happier

Lee Ann Brady

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

We just sold our first house with James, and he's working hard to find us our next one.

Great personal touch and always available for questions or concerns.

Samantha VanSledright

"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."

"Laura did a great job at showing us several properties until we found the right one that fit our needs. She knows the market well and has a lot of experience with the costs of remodeling and purchasing. You can't find that with just any realtor. She's the best."

"Laura was absolutely amazing to work with! Very flexible, informative, and professional. She answered any and all questions promptly and was such a pleasure to be around. We had to take our 2 year old daughter to several viewings and when we completed our closing documents - she went above and beyond to include her in the experience, playing with her and keeping her involved. Could not recommend her more!"

"Since the 1st time I called Laura (and she picked up at 6:30 a.m.) my experience has been exemplary. She (and Shannon) in the office were kind, expedient, and quite knowledgeable on many issues, factors, legal documentation and situation(s) which unexpectedly 'pop up' - it's a gift to have Laura as a rep, outstanding in her ethic and professionalism, and Shannon, just overall outstanding to work with - Thank you again Laura, and Shannon, for your kind assistance and attention throughout my new home purchase."

"It was a pleasure working with Laura. She came to the house and explained all of the things that we should possibly do to get the best price out of our house. She reassured us when things seemed to move slowly, was very compassionate when I became anxious. She kept us on track and on task. Thank you for your help, Laura"

"Laura was an outstanding realtor. From the first contact to our closing date, she was our advocate and got us an offer for above asking on the home we sold and into our dream home seamlessly. She was professional, kind, and knowledgeable of the industry. When we were having issues with our lender, she stepped in to make sure we were getting the most accurate information and a fair deal on our new mortgage. She went above and beyond for us. She will for you too. I would 100% recommend Laura and her team!"

"Laura was everything we were looking for in a real estate professional. Her attentiveness and quick responses helped us navigate a tough market. Being a former agent myself but from a different market I could not have been happier. She treated us the way I treat my clients and will recommend her to everyone. In addition her team in the office were also professional and friendly."
