What Past Clients are Saying...

Each year I have the privilege of working with the most amazing group of clients it's always exciting to meet new people and to learn how I can best serve their real estate needs.  My team goes above and beyond to provide the most exceptional care throughout your journey. It is our sincere hope that you will be so incredibly satisfied with your experience that you will enthusiastically share my name with your friends and family. 

Here is what some of my past clients are saying: 

Our house in the Happy Valley was the third house we purchased, selling two, in three different states.  Each time, we felt disappointed after the transaction, like we had been pressured by the agent to move too fast, or that the agent wasn't fully listening to our needs/wishes.  After this last purchase with Lara Kingshipp as our agent, we realized it was possible to feel really good about the process.   Lara was such a great support for our entire family during this journey, whether she was helping our two sons, under 5 years old, in and out of the car on house tours or engaging in timely and helpful communication along the way.  We felt at such peace about this process the entire time, and a large part of that was due to Lara's patience, support, expertise, and friendly guidance.  We are so grateful to realize we didn't have unrealistic expectations, but rather, had found the right agent.  I highly recommend Lara, as she is the best realtor we have ever worked with!

Lara was amazing throughout the process of buying our home in State College. We were house hunting, and then buying, from afar, and Lara kept us informed and was very responsive whenever we reached out. She listened carefully to our criteria for a house, and then found the perfect fit for us before  it was even listed on MLS. Then once we made an offer on our dream house, Lara found an excellent inspector who did a very thorough inspection and offered helpful advice on maintenance of the house systems. In general, Lara not only does a great job as an agent, but also knows the State College community very well and can recommend professionals for construction, maintenance, inspection, mortgage lending, and anything else related to buying or owning a home. In addition to her considerable expertise, Lara is a lovely person and is very easy to work with. She made a stressful, difficult process much more pleasant for us, and we highly recommend her to other home buyers (and sellers!).

My family has been blessed to have Lara assist us in the purchase of our last two homes (one in 2010 and most recently in 2014). She is simply the most kind and caring agent, putting the needs of her clients above all else. We have had two very complicated moves, but both were made so much more bearable because Lara was there to help the entire time. I recommend her to anyone looking for a caring agent in central PA.

-Amara Solari and Matthew Restall

Lara Kingshipp receives my unqualified recommendation as a Realtor.I had the pleasure of using Lara's services as a buyer's agent for a successful home search in 2013. Lara provided valuable and prompt advice and answers to my questions from the start of my search through the closing. After the closing, Lara was still always there to answer any questions that came up from me as a new homeowner in the State College area.

-Christoph Hinkelmann

Working with Lara was one of the best decisions we made as we bought and sold. She listened attentively to what we were looking for and found the perfect house for our family. This was a new experience for us and Lara was professional, compassionate, patient, and kind. Then, she turned around  and sold our house within hours of listing it. She spent as much time as we needed to wisely advise us as we evaluated offers. Lara is a bright woman with integrity. Her team was also amazing. Kay gave us fantastic guidance in staging our home and Becca was so professional as her assistant- everyone responded quickly to all of our questions. We can’t recommend Lara and her team highly enough.


Lara is an excellent realtor who takes time to get to know your needs and offers tailored and helpful suggestions. She took me through the journey of search and purchase of my first home painlessly and thoughtfully. A year after she masterfully took upon the sale of my house and again made this  process an awesome experience!! She and her team truly care about you as a client and her approach to the process gives you assurance that your property will be truthfully and beautifully represented. Patient, no-nonsense and very personable professional you will be happy to work with. I am wholeheartedly recommending working with her.

It is truly an honor and a privilege to lend my endorsement for Lara Kingship. Lara is one of the most LOYAL, extremely intelligent, compassionate, diligent, and competitive real estate agents that I have ever encountered. In other words, she GETS THE DONE and she is TOTALLY honest in her  approach. I might also add, she does a great job of prepping sellers and buyers from the beginning stages of the sale/purchase to the last and final document. In the end, Lara’s approach is very successful and effective. Lara advised my wife and I, and did the majority of the prep work to get our home on the market at 305 Winesap Drive. Port Matilda, PA 16870. Lara was extremely meticulous and thorough in her proceedings, and she turned our common every day lived in home into a beautiful showcase home for future buyers. As a result, we had a contract on home on the second day that it was listed on the market. It also important to note that is Lara very reputable and highly recommended in the State College area, because she is a woman of integrity, character, and she wants the most for her clients. I, without a doubt; would recommend Lara Kinship to be the real estate agent for future home buyers and sellers.
