".......MONUMENTAL TASK FLOW SMOOTHLY..."
“Ralph and I recently sold our property of 35 years. It was a huge job to sell and dismantle as you can imagine. I just want to take a moment in praise of Laura, who made this monumental task flow smoothly. Laura was consistently on her toes and pleasant to work with, despite the challenges of our property. She gave us warm support and encouragement that kept us going and got us through the sale. We are very grateful to Laura.”

".......MOST WELL ORGANIZED, EFFICIENT AND FUN..."
"I knew when I first met her that she'd be very good but I had no idea how far I had underestimated her. The process of finding and buying a residence in an unfamiliar (to me) town was so enjoyable that I cannot wait for another chance to start another real estate search/purchase with Laura again. And with the current market (2008), maybe I'll get that chance sooner than expected. :^) I'm just not kidding here. Anything you ever thought about the travails of going through the home-buying or multiple-unit buying process, well, just throw them out the door, and call Laura. I have nothing but extremely fond memories of the entire process. And I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that about their realtor.
Thanks Laura! You're the smartest, most well-organized, efficient, and fun person to work with. You minimized the effort required of us in the process by what must have been maximum behind-the-scenes work on your part to maintain such preparedness and knowledge, and provide such superb guidance throughout this process.”
Denise – (buyer)
".......ALWAYS WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND..."
“I want to thank you so very much for the wonderful, stupendous job that you did selling our property. You are FABULOUS you always went above and beyond to help us and made the difficult job of selling a piece of property painless. I can't thank you enough. It is weird not being in touch!”

".......IMPRESSED WITH HER KNOWLEDGE..."
"In 2008, My family relocated to the Bay area long distance, buying a property that we initially found online. Having met Laura at an open house, we were impressed with her knowledge and get it done attitude.We called her regarding an online possibility and asked her to preview it, as travel with work did not allow us to view the property in person. Laura viewed the property over the Christmas holiday and let me know that it was definitely worth pursuing! We came out immediately to view and made on offer based on her recommendations. Laura was integral to the negotiation process, bringing in multiple contractors to offer estimates for repairs, allowing us to include all of the estimates in our offer.We won the bidding process, due in large part to her diligence and pleasant demeanor with the seller's broker. When it came time to sell for another relocation, Laura provided insight not only to the market, but to the house itself, recommending specific repairs and again providing contractor recommendations, allowing us to sell over asking within two weeks of placing the house on the market.Laura did a fantastic job both as a buyer's and a seller's agent. I wish that she lived everywhere, as I would love to have her as my agent in my current location. Having worked with many agents relocating throughout the US, I can say without a doubt, Laura is the best! I recently called her to assist us to buy property in California again!"

".......SHONE DURING THE NEGOTIATING PROCESS..."
"Laura helped us buy our first home. She was incredibly patient, explaining every step of the process. We never felt pressured to make a decision. Laura truly shone during the negotiating process saving us money and making sure we got the house we really wanted. As a same sex couple, Laura was able to address our specific needs during the closing process. Laura was really fun and energetic to work with, always available and very thorough. We would give definitely have Laura help us buy another house in the future"

".......SAVVY, PERSONABLE AND PATIENT..."
"My husband and I were completely thrilled when we met Laura. We had worked with several real estate agents and it wasn't until meeting her that we knew she would help realize our dream of finding a home. She held our hand through every part of the homebuying process and never left a question unanswered. Look no further if you are seeking a savvy, personable, and patient professional who knows real estate"
