  • Laura Zembrodt Scott Evans
    • Laura Zembrodt: Real Estate Agent. After graduating the University of Kentucky with a 5-year Bachelor of Architecture degree at the age of 20, Laura gained over 15 years experience as an architect working with large residential homebuilders, commercial firms and also a few years working as an architect in an interior design merchandising firm. She spent 5 years in the Northeast and has now made her way back to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Area.
    • The aspect of real estate that has always fascinated Laura is looking at the older houses and imagining what could be. She will always have a passion for design but wants to share her knowledge and help others as a real estate agent. The knowledge and experience that she has gained will be an asset in many ways. Preparing an as-built set of construction documents is similar in nature to gathering information needed for a listing. The general knowledge of construction greatly benefits the inspection process.
    • Laura plays sand volleyball, runs marathons, and triathlons. She also coaches volleyball and referees local high school and middle school volleyball. Laura’s competitive edge is an asset in the negotiation phase. She does everything with a positive ‘can do’ attitude always looking for a solution.

Attention: Buyers

At, we specialize in helping buyers find homes across the Greater Cincinnati Area. Most buyers today use the internet as their primary tool for searching. We created this Web site to keep the public informed of what is on the market at all times. The email search tool sends new listings to your email any day there is a new listing that matches your search criteria. After you have found homes that you want to view in person, contact us and we can set up appointments at any of the homes you choose. This saves time for you from having to call multiple agents at different brokerages. We handle it all for you.

Best of all there is no charge for this service. The "seller" pays a commission to us when we represent you as a "buyer's agent." So watch your emails for homes that meet your preferences. We will be available anytime between 9am and 10pm, 7 days a week to answer any questions you may have or to do a search of our own to see if there is anything other homes out there.

We will work hard to help you find what you are looking for. We believe in great communication and prompt follow-up to help make this a wonderful experience for you and your family. Our ultimate goal is to find you the perfect home and we won't rest until we do!

If you interested in building a house and already have a lot and/or a builder in mind we can help there too! We are happy to help you negotiate price, amenities and stay up on the building process. All of this and it is FREE of charge to you!

Attention: Sellers

Are you looking for an agent to just list your home or do you want an agent to actually SELL you home? Many agents look to simply list homes as an opportunity to pick up new clients as they come to look at your listing. We look at it as an opportunity to sell your home and build a reputation as agents that will do just that. We are not satisfied to simply have listings and just let them sit on the market. We want to market them and get them sold quickly and make a profit for you. We have an extensive marketing plan in place that includes newspaper ads, open houses, a national Web site, brochures and great visible signs all to get the buyers to your listing. We will help you with staging your home, too, so that buyers can walk in and feel as if they have just walked into the house of their dreams. We don't want your home to be just another one they look at...we want it to be the ONLY one they look at!

Call or email us today and let us explain to you how we can help you sell your home.
