Laura Spann, a lifelong resident of Fort Worth, has been surrounded by real estate since she was a child – her mother has been an agent since 1974. Laura started her real estate career in 1999 after graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington and receiving her law degree from Texas A&M University. Although she is not a practicing attorney, her knowledge of the law is a huge asset to her clients and sets her apart from her peers. Her real estate expertise and fine-tuned negotiating skills help make the buying and selling process for her clients simple. Her confident demeanor combined with her fun-loving sense of humor bring a lightness to the sometimes-stressful process of buying and selling a home.
“Laura and her team were incredible. From start to finish, they displayed incredible knowledge of the market and put together a marketing plan that exceeded our expectations. In a matter of just 2 days, we had over 15 offers on our sale and sold it for significantly more than asking price. The Spann Group negotiated creatively and expedited the closing. I’ve worked with lots of Realtors in several states, she is by far the best.” - J. Westendorf
Making things simple for her clients is a high priority for Laura – even helping clients that are relocating to get plugged into new networks. She firmly believes that the client-agent relationship is more than a real estate transaction; it is the beginning of a longtime friendship.
“We could not imagine trying to find a house for my family without the help of Laura. Finding a house is stressful enough; throw in being in a city 950 miles away and trying to relocate your family of four. With Laura it really was a breeze. She found what we thought we wanted, and after seeing a few houses, helped guide us to what we were really looking for. We actually miss our email exchanges on a daily basis; she made it that easy. If anyone is looking for a Realtor who listens, stop, you shouldn’t look any further. When my in-laws move from overseas, we have already told them what Realtor they will be using. She really made it so easy – we just closed a week ago and we want to buy another one from her, it was that fun working with her.” – C. Roland
She holds professional designations of Certified Residential Specialist, Accredited Buyer’s Representative and Broker designation. She is a member of the National Association of Realtors, Texas Association of Realtors and the Greater Fort Worth Association of Realtors.
