As buyers and sellers, we have used Laura for virtually all of our real estate transactions in San Francisco over the last 12 years, including our most recent situation. What sets Laura apart in my view is that she is a highly effective and experienced project manager IN ADDITION to being a great real estate agent. We sold our investment property (and former primary residence) and she mobilized her ecosystem of painters, stagers and handy men (Russ) to help us prep and transform the property for sale. They did such a good job we briefly considered keeping the house because the property looked immaculate when it hit the market. She guided us through a very tricky marketing process during the summer and landed us a buyer and closed in 2-3 weeks from when the buyer saw the property. The pace of the closing process and relative efficiency was a joy to experience. We got regular updates from Laura and appreciated her fact-based approach to the conversations. Last thing about Laura and her team - they hustle!! We will continue to work with Laura.

I don't often write reviews, but I had to take the time to write one for Laura because of how exceptional she was to work with when we were selling our home in San Francisco. We actually worked with Laura when we bought the home quite a few years ago and found her to be an insightful, helpful & honest agent on the buy side. So we were happy to work with her again when selling. But, working with Laura on the sell side seriously exceeded our expectations! We had been renting out our condo for the year prior to sell and so weren't even in San Francisco for a lot the heavy lifting involved in the sale. Laura arranged for everything, did an excellent job preparing our home for sale, and got us a great price, far above what we were even expecting. Laura is incredibly organized, detail oriented, and responsive which is basically precise what I'm looking for in an agent. She's also nice and pleasant person 🙂 I honestly don't think I can think of a professional I've worked with who gave a higher quality of service. I can't recommend Laura enough!

Laura is a great agent who helped my wife and I land a great house at a really good price. She is very honest and forthright, which is an important attribute to me when seeking information to make a decision. Laura was very available to us, followed up in a timely manner, and was very PROACTIVE on our behalf, which seems rare these days in any profession, and was always friendly and enjoyable to work with. She gave us great advice on terms and negotiation, which was instrumental in helping us land a house we loved. She also built a great team around us in our mortgage broker Stanley Erker at Wells Fargo and Kelley Lillis at Fidelity National Financial as our escrow agent. The team was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Laura!"

Laura is a superstar agent. This is my second time working with Laura, both times as a buyer. I initially wanted to buy a flat in a more suitable neighborhood and then changed course midway through my search to buy a SFH. It is not an easy process for SFH buyers in today's market but Laura understood and adjusted to what I was looking for and my budget. She ultimately did a phenomenal job in negotiating my offer for a SFH with my ideal location, layout and features. Her clients' best interests are her #1 priority which is obvious through the care, thoroughness and thoughtfulness she shows throughout the process. Her knowledge of the SF market is also just unparalleled. I'm working with Laura again already (as a seller) and most highly recommend her to anyone!
Laura is one of the best agents I have ever had the privilege of ever working with. Being an ex-real estate broker myself my expectations are over the top high. Laura's responsiveness is beyond impressive. Her knowledge of San Francisco and her advice throughout the process was something I completely relied upon moving from another State. She knows the market and the neighborhoods so very well. I can not recommend her enough she is beyond a doubt one of the best in the business.
