When my husband and I came to Los Angeles, I was so intimidated by the city. It was huge and we had to be on the west side for his job. In addition to the size, the cost was way, way higher than I anticipated it would be. I was discouraged right off out of the gate.
We met Laura when we came to see a house she was showing. She was professional, knowledgeable and patient, as my attention was divided between the house and my 1 year old son during the visit. We asked her to be our agent the next day.
Laura worked tirelessly, sending us properties, spending weekends and evenings taking us out and helping us not only find the perfect home, but identify the qualities in a home that would be best for our family. We didn't make it easy, presenting many challenges for her - our budget changed from the initial starting point, my husband and I had a totally different idea about what we wanted and (on top of all that) our availability window to see property was ridiculously narrow because of the time constraints created by my husband's job. Even with all of these challenges, Laura found us the perfect place - in under three months time. She is utterly amazing.
It isn't a matter of choosing Laura as your agent because she is nice and easy to work with and will make your house hunting a far less frustrating experience; it's a matter of needing Laura (or an agent like her) to combat the unique challenges presented by the LA market. However, good luck finding an agent like her.
Laura was EXTREMELY organized and kept us in the loop throughout the process of purchasing a condo. She was very knowledgable of the area, understood my needs and ensured that all parties were up to date with paperwork, etc. She even assisted with vendors for fixes that needed to take place at the unit before move-in. I HIGHLY recommend Laura and will definitely be working with her again on future home purchases.
Laura helped my wife and I buy our first home. We know that we are fairly demanding but Laura was patient with us through the process and responsive to our barrage of questions. Our search took approximately three months and we made a couple of offers during that time: the first was not successful, but the second one was. The escrow process was not straightforward, however, as the seller's agent was inexperienced and Laura had to do double duty in educating the agent too. Laura was all-around professional and we enjoyed working with her - the only area that we think could have been stronger was with final price negotiations. Laura also recommended a very good local broker for us, which was very helpful.
