Laiyee Malott, Hong Kong born Chinese-American, has been a licensed real estate agent since 1991. She joined Sole & Bloom Realtors in 1993 and has been very active in the Athens real estate community. Over the course of her very successful career, she has sold hundreds of investment and residential properties. She can provide savvy advice on either side of the real estate deals as she works to get the best price for her buyers and sellers. She feels that the most rewarding aspect of her job is meeting and working with people from all walks of life, many of whom have become good friends and repeat customers. Laiyee's clients/customers consider her energetic, patient, honest hard working and someone they can trust.

Laiyee and her husband have lived in Athens since 1987 where they raised two now grown children who graduated from the Athens City School system. Having moved from the big city to this small college town, Laiyee loves Athens and considers herself a transplant turned native. Eager to welcome and share her experience with newcomers, she is one of the best tour guides for visitors and job candidates.

Please give Laiyee a call when you are thinking of buying or selling a property. She will give you her candid, unbiased professional opinion and walk you through all the steps.

"Your information about Athens history and way of life really helped us to feel like instant "townies". In fact, I cannot imagine how we would have managed the move without your many connections to locals who could provide the services we needed. Many of these folks are now our friends and acquaintances... because of your kind and giving personality. We are glad to now call you friend and thank you for all your time, effort and attention..."    
John and Carmen Sabraw


"I have lived in Athens for over 25 years, and have a mental list of businesses that I deal with. I only go to places where I know and trust the people who work there... Unfortunately, when my wife and I decided we needed to put our house on the market we didn't know any realtors... Neither my wife nor I had ever met Laiyee, but she worked so hard for us that you'd think we were related... She got us a much better selling price than we could have hoped for."    

Bob and Gwyneth Church


"She was the very embodiment of professionalism: informed, courteous, patient and most importantly, diligent... I can safely say in retrospect that if Laiyee had not been willing to go the extra proverbial mile for me, my house would not have sold this past year, nor would I have gotten nearly as much for it as I did."    

Bob Miklistch


"I had complete confidence in Laiyee as my realtor. However, she went above and beyond my expectation when she continued to assist me after I closed on the house... Laiyee is an absolute pleasure to work with, a consummate professional and a Realtor who truly advocates for her clients. I have recommended Laiyee to a number of friends and colleagues, who have subsequently made excellent home purchases with Laiyee's assistance."    

Ursala Castellano


"We recently purchased our first house with the assistance of Ms. Laiyee Malott. Not only were we buying a house for the first time, but we were also buying a home long distance. We always appreciated her honesty about certain positive or negative aspects of a property that we could not see without being present at the showing... Ms. Malott helped to make our transition to Athens and Ohio a much smoother process."    

Edward and Jane Morris


"Laiyee's willingness to make herself available at any hour and to follow up the smallest details was invaluable to us."    

Mike and Sue DeWine


"When we had a three-way deal going that required great attention to details and a precise timeline, you communicated with us thoroughly and regulary. You were always available for questions and changes of strategy. Your enthusiasm for and experience with real estate served us well."    

Dan and Jane Johnson


"As the parents of three young children, we very much appreciated Ms. Malott's patience, flexibilty, and understanding throughout our trip... She has a keen knowledge of this town and its neighborhood, and she has a gift for understanding the needs of her clients."    

David and Barbara Miller


"Our relocation to Athens from New York was a difficult project... we had to accomplish these tasks quickly from a great distance. It was through your persistance, organizational skills and broad social network that we were able to find our home and navigate through all of the obstacles just in time. We are most appreciative of the support that you continued to offer to our family even after we closed on the house."    

Tom Vander Ven


"...But probably the highest compliment that I can give you is to remark on the warmth with which you perform your job. I can honestly say that you always treated us as if we were members of your own family going through the exciting process of purchasing a new home."    

Patrick Kreiser


"We found you to be very hard working, to look out for our interests, to carefully appraise the situation, and to make meaningful suggestions concerning all aspects of the sale process. We would highly recommend you to anyone listing real estate in Athens."
