TESTIMONIALS

If you are hoping to find an agent who truly cares about her clients, goes miles above and beyond the normal expectations for such a task and whom you may just want to stick around even after you close escrow - look no further. - Libby D.

Thanks to Laura's assistance, expertise, professionalism and persistence, my husband and I were able to realize our dream of buying our first home. Laura was recommended to me through a friend, and after just one email exchange, in which she provided a ton of useful information, I knew she'd be great. We were looking for a house all the way from the San Francisco Bay Area, and somehow Laura made the entire process -- from seeing properties to making offers to going through inspections -- nearly effortless. On my one visit down to LA to look for a place, she drove me around to see a bunch of properties; from that single day together, Laura knew exactly what type of home we were looking for -- she is amazingly attentive and intuitive! - Edan L.

Laura helped me purchase my first home and she was thorough and attentive from start to finish. She made herself available for showings and phone calls, and kindly walked me through what is generally a very terrifying process. She gave me her honest perspective and I always trusted that she had my best interests in mind. Laura also went out of her way to explain the paperwork and legalese to me so I fully understood everything I was signing. Laura even helped me out when it came to moving and setting up my new home. It really is start-to-finish, full-service with her.  Bottom line: Laura is sweet yet assertive, patient, trustworthy, organized and efficient - the perfect combo for a killer agent! I feel very lucky that I was able to go through this process with her by my side. - Jessie G.

Laura was a fantastic partner to have to accompany me in the process of buying a home. What could have otherwise been a stress-full and difficult decision was made seamless by Laura's clarity, knowledge of Los Angeles real estate and innate ability to understand the needs of her client. Laura guided me through the many, many stepped process of purchase, from visits to offer placement and numerous inspections. Her steady follow through is unmatched; Laura even facilitated my move in and went out of her way to provide me with information about the history of the home and connections with interior design firms. - Jasmin B.

Intuition. Creativity. Responsiveness. Open ears. Tenacity. Laura brings all of these aspects and more to her approach as an agent, and they are the qualities that helped us to find the home of our dreams. She possesses a nuanced understanding of the many neighborhoods that represent the fabric of Los Angeles, and was able to make us feel comfortable every step of the way through researching, negotiating, and ultimately committing to a home. Laura is at her core an artist, so she is attuned to what is not said, what is between the lines, and what is unspoken. That sensitivity brought the right kind of energy to our house search, and to the final stages of negotiations, ultimately saving us tens of thousands of dollars.  - Robin S. 

Laura is knowledgeable - as first-time home buyers, we valued her ability to explain the intricacies of the process in simple terms and her patience in responding to all of our questions.  Laura is diligent - if she hadn't arranged a private showing and helped us put together a competitive offer package in a matter of hours, we wouldn't be in our dream home today. - E. R

She went above and beyond to make herself available for our myriad questions and concerns as first time home buyers, helping us to put in a successful offer and close on our home in less than a month. - Andi G.

Laura did an EXCELLENT job helping me find and purchase a house in Eagle Rock.  She was patient and work diligently to ensure I got a great deal and everything was painless. - Robert F.

Laura is the best! We've worked with her on several occasions and would definitely do it again. She is professional, seasoned, attentive and extremely patient. Thanks to her we now live in our dream house. She is a miracle worker! - Marivi T.

Laura also knows the market really well and will quickly get a sense of your house-personality and try to match you with appropriate listings. You can learn a lot from her about Los Angeles too; she is familiar with the idiosyncrasies of its many different neighborhoods and might end up introducing you to a cool place you didn't know before. - Justine K.
