I wasnt quit sure I wanted to start this journey of finding a place I could call home until I started working with Lavell. He has been helpful, reliable, and very informative. Not only is he helping me along the way but his guidence has provided me a understanding of how the process works as well as what steps need to be taken to advance to the next level. He is a responsible realator filled with positive engery and I would recommend him to anyone with no hesitation. Lavell you are the best
I’ve had the pleasure of having Mr. Thompson work with my wife and I with searching for our perfect home. I must say his professionalism is second to none, he's a very patient man (which is key when looking for a home). Lavell has been there to show us listings regardless of the time and day. I’m looking forward to finishing the search and purchase process with Mr. Thompson because I have no doubt that we are in good hands
Lavell has been the best realtor I've ever had the pleasure working with. He is very responsible, reliable, helpful... just to say a few. Henry and I would most definitely recommend him to everyone and anyone. If you are looking for a realtor who will work hard for you, then give Him a call... Thanks again Lavell for all your hard work
We found Lavell through a post card that was sent to our apartment. He has helped us through this long journey in buying our first home. He is fantastic, very informative, and there when you need questions asked anytime you call him. We are very happy and couldn't of ask for a better Realtor and first experience in buying a home! We will refer him to all of our friends and family!
I am currently in the process of work with Mr. Thompson and thus far his has truly exceeded my expectation. I say that because I have a very complex situation in regards to my Real Estate portfolio, one that would demand the pinnacle of patience and understand. To make a long story short Mr. Thompson has displayed to more than what I requested, so I'm sure we will close our current deal.
It's an absolute pleasure for me to write this review of my experience with Lavell. Lavell and my husband have known each other since they were teenagers but lost touch over the years. It just so happened that they were both at a mutual friend's party and as my husband was discussing real estate with a group, it was brought to his attention that Lavell could assist us with that.
After canceling our listing with another well known agent, we decided to give Lavell a try. He made it very clear to my husband and I that business was business and that we could cancel with him at any time if we were not happy.
Our transaction was a short sale, so it did take a few months for Lavell's team to negotiate on our behalf. Overall, the selling experience was terrific and we were always updated on the process. I'm so glad that we gave him a shot! We were so close to just walking away and giving the keys to the bank because prior attempts to negotiate were exhausting.
My husband and I couldn't be happier because we were able to avoid foreclosure.
There are many realtors to chose from but I don't know if there's many as knowledgeable, diligent, and committed as Lavell and his team. If you're thinking of hiring a realtor, give Lavell a try!
Karen and I listed our home with Lavell in mid-March and, in a word, Lavell is fantastic. 4" days later, we were at closing and the house was sold. Lavell guided us through every step of the way, provided resources we needed to complete inspection items, worked with the appraiser, etc., Truly, I cannot recommend Lavell highly enough. If I called him with a question, he either answered his phone, or called back within minutes. If I texted him, he responded immediately. More subjectively, Lavell provided a positive attitude throughout the process. Moving is stressful and it's easy to obsess over the details. His can do outlook, and we'll get it handled demeanor were a life saver. Truly, if you decide to work with Lavell. You will be glad you did!
Lavell is amazing! He was patient with my countless questions, very responsive & I felt he had our best interests at heart the entire time. Lavell worked around the clock to fit our schedules and to make sure all of our documents were filled out properly. Our purchase was a lengthy one, but he was with us every step of the way providing us with update emails, texts and calls. The entire experience went as smoothly as one could hope. The entire team he surrounded himself with was great as well. An wonderful experience and I am so happy to have worked with Lavell.
Lavell, was a blessing, he was by my side the whole process, every time I would call, he made sure he was always available for me. He made sure my property was in the best condition so that I can get the best price. He made the selling process extremely easy for me.
Lavell is the best and I'm so glad I chose him to guide me through the journey of buying my first home. I had a strict timeline that had to be followed and I needed to find my family's dream home in just three short weeks. Lavell Thompson helped me through every step of the way. I was doubtful when the process began because of a few bumps in the road but Lavell provided the support and encouragement that I didn't even know I needed. Besides being very knowledgeable in the whole process of purchasing a home, he was also extremely patient and available to me. I felt comfortable contacting him through text, call, or email any time I had a question or concern. Sadly, during this time, Lavell also had a personal family tragedy he was facing, but he continued to remain professional and still made me feel like my needs were just as important. He never once doubted that he would find me the perfect home. He provided me with the best experience imaginable as I purchased my first home. I am positive I would not be where I am now without Lavell. My family and I are so happy with our new home.

Thank you Lavell!
