"Laura was an absolute DREAM to work with! She handled everything and made the entire purchase/sell process a breeze!! I highly recommend her. She was kind, understanding, and patient.

"When we set out to buy a home in the Blue Ridge area during COVID, we knew we needed the perfect realtor. Not only was our travel impacted, but the market was moving so fast we had to have a realtor we could trust to identify and preview properties and who was also super-responsive and able to move fast. Laura could not have been more perfect. She helped us land the ideal home for us and also introduced us to many local people, contractors and businesses to help get us settled in. We would not be here in this amazing place without Laura’s efforts and connections. She is truly the best!"

★★★★★
"We came to Blue Ridge from outside of town and only had 1 day to look at homes. Laura did a great job lining up several listings for us to view that all met the requirements we were looking for. She then helped us put together a competitive offer and purchase our top choice from the homes we viewed. After inspections, we had several items we needed addressing and Laura was able to negotiate for sellers to meet all of our requests. Will definitely be using Laura in the future as well."

She will be our first call concerning any real estate needs moving forward."

Negotiations with the seller were quick and easy. Closing was a breeze!

We would highly recommend Laura if you are looking to relocate to the area."

★★★★★

We are new to Blue Ridge and she gave us invaluable information about the community, things a non-local agent just couldn't know.

" Not knowing any agents in the area, I gave the ‘find an agent’ button on Zillow a try. We got Laura, and are we glad we did. She was very professional, knew the inventory, made time for us on short notice, worked around her family schedule and ours (a challenge during the week before Thanksgiving cabin hunt and two days after Christmas closing), showed us properties that met our wish list, got answers to all our questions, and pointed us in the right direction for a rental manager. My wife and I highly recommend Laura. You won’t be disappointed. "

★★★★★
"Working with Laura made buying our first home an absolute breeze. She patiently showed us many different homes over the course of 2 days so we could find the perfect home to build our lives in. Our sellers were VERY stubborn when it came to negotiating what should have been simple things but Laura handled it very well and was able to get us a great deal! But my favorite part about working with Laura is that she is now a close friend and has truly embraced us into this community. She cares about the people she works with like they are family and that makes the biggest difference!"

★★★★★
"Laura did a great job during our recent home purchase in Mineral Bluff. She spent all day with us, two days in a row, she must have shown us 20 different homes. She was able to determine just what we were looking for and we were delighted to find it! She is knowledgeable about the area, patient, and helpful. She helped us navigate through little bumps in the process, and was quickly responsive. She has continued to be so post-purchase, with recommendations about various services and contact people. Thank you Laura!" - Ellen and Charlie

★★★★★
"If you are looking for a realtor who is always well prepared and has an excellent work ethic, Laura is your person. In my 60 years on this earth, I have bought and sold a fair number of houses. When my wife and I decided on a 2nd house in the mountains, we came to meet Laura while poking around in Zillow (she answered an inquiry on one of the listings). From day 1, Laura answered all our questions on multiple properties and did all the homework to answer our questions on listings she was not familiar with. This went on for months. She spent an entire miserable weekend with us (low 40's, non-stop rain) when we came up from Florida to show us listings. BTW, unlike many realtors who will not talk to you without a signed agreement, Laura is honest and very trusting and prefers to do business the old-fashioned way, with a handshake. Working with Laura was a home run for us. She responds to every question via text or phone, usually within hours. If you ask her opinion, you will receive an honest answer. She is genuine, with an easy disposition. You will always get 100% effort from Laura, regardless of your price point. When we are ready to upgrade, without a doubt, we will calling Laura."

★★★★★
"We had been looking to buy in North Georgia for years and were finally ready to make the move. We connected with Laura via the internet and were so thankful that we did! After spending a couple of days in North Georgia, we found a place and had a contract on it but the inspection revealed too many issues. We had to move quickly to find another one because our home was under contract. Looking online, I found a cabin that met all our specs and had just come on the market. We quickly contacted Laura and she jumped into action: toured the home, provided us feedback, and presented our offer to the listing agent...all on the same day! Amazing! Laura is smart, honest, funny, and very comfortable to work with. She will be our Realtor for life!"

★★★★★
"There aren’t enough wonderful things to say about Laura. I myself have not had the opportunity to purchase a home yet, but when I’m ready for my first home - she’ll be my first call. Laura has complete knowledge of Atlanta, Blue Ridge, and Mineral Bluff as a home and property owner in both areas. She’s passionate about helping others find their perfect home and she has a keen eye for trends and great prices. Connect with Laura - you won’t regret it."

★★★★★
"I wish there were 10 stars for Laura Elleby! My husband and I struck gold when we found her and have had a fabulous experience from start to finish. We have worked with multiple agents throughout the years and she is truly one of a kind when it comes to real estate and design. Her professionalism, communication skills, and eye for interior design is top-notch. She always has the best interest in her clients and steered us in the right direction throughout the entire process. We will always look forward to working with Laura and recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!"

★★★★★
"I've been fortunate to know Laura for the past 2.5 years and I can't think of anyone else I'd like to help me buy my first home. She's informed, has a great taste in real estate and is extremely honest. I look for transparency when I work with someone and have no doubt she'll offer excellent customer service."

★★★★★
"My wife and I traveled to Blue Ridge to buy our first home. We were coming from out of state, with a large list of homes we wanted to see. Laura really helped us narrow down our choices with her knowledge of the area. She worked most of the day and night trying to set up showings and make our trip as efficient as possible. She is a hard-working gal! We appreciated her efforts. We had worked with several different realtors in several different areas prior to meeting Laura, and she blew the previous realtors out of the water. She has been a great help throughout the process of finding a home and purchasing it. Highly recommended! "

★★★★★
"I highly recommend Laura to everyone! I can't say enough about how she has enhanced my home buying experience. As a young professional, I'm looking to buy my first home which is really scary, but Laura has made me her first priority. I've probably drove the woman crazy calling her with 1000 questions, but she never made me feel like I was a bother to her! If you want an agent with a great personality who will make you her first priority, you should give Laura a call!!"

★★★★★
"Laura brings energy to Blue Ridge real estate that most local agents don't have. We have bought and sold a few homes in Blue Ridge and have used different agents each time for one reason or another. Most recently a good friend referred Laura to us, so we hired her to list our cabin. We were blown away at her work ethic, market knowledge, marketing of the home and most importantly her network of potential buyers looking for homes in the North GA mountains. Laura was able to sell our cabin way faster than we ever imagined. She's helping us find our next mountain get-a-way now! "

★★★★★
"Laura has been a dream to work with. She's always two steps ahead and so quick to make things convenient and smooth. She takes the anxiety out of choosing and purchasing a house and goes above and beyond the call of duty. We closed on time and love the new house she found for us!! We couldn't have chosen a better realtor!!"

About Laura
Wife & Mom
Family is first and foremost. I am blessed to be the wife of my soulmate and mother of two. We moved to Blue Ridge, Georgia to raise our babies in the best way possible surrounded by the best environment and kindest people. We are so thankful to belong to this community, which is more like a big family. I may have been born a Texan, but my heart now belongs to North Georgia :).

Realtor®
My passion for real estate started a little later in life after I had both of my kids and a career in medical sales for over a decade. I am truly humbled to say that I have found my calling. I enjoy every moment of helping people find their dream house and/or assisting others in finding the perfect buyer for their cherished home. Before becoming a Realtor®, I envied those people who enjoyed their job so much they didn’t feel like it was work. But, now I am thrilled to say I am one of those people! As a part of the Remax Town and Country team, we strive to stick together as a family and bring the best service to each and every person we come in contact with. I am also very thankful for my broker, who gave me a chance and runs our family ship with precision and love.

Hobbies
A true yogi at heart, I enjoy the beauty of the outdoors and spending time in nature. Fortunately, I live in the perfect place to do just that. The North Georgia mountains have also inspired me to pick up mountain biking with my husband, who was previously a professional motorcycle racer/cyclist. He’s kind enough to wait on me when we mountain bike and hike in North Georgia, but also join me on my other favorite hobbies – white water rafting and my absolute favorite, cocktail cruises with my family on Lake Blue Ridge. That’s a hobby, right?
