‟Laurie is truly one of the best real estate agents you could find anywhere, but especially in the Mar Vista/Venice/Santa Monica area. We sold our house and bought a new house with Laurie. She is the definition of full service - she literally becomes a welcome member of your family, helping out wherever help is needed. She arranged our pod, multiple … stagers to come give us quotes, and when we threw her a curveball and wanted to stage ourselves, she even brought her own things over to help. She let us store things in her garage, and called a gardener to spruce up our landscaping and a handyman to touch up some things that needed fixing around the house. She is honest, hardworking and very diligent and thorough. She was an incredibly tough but fair negotiator, which is high praise coming from two people who do that for a living! We have used other real estate agents in the past that we have also liked, but when we went with Laurie, we never looked back- there is no one that could have helped us get our contingent offer on a new house accepted, given us so much help to list our existing house so quickly, and then get it into escrow after only 6 days during the slowest time of year. The way she gave us the royal treatment, we thought we were her only clients, only to find out later that she had multiple other active listings. You won’t find another agent that can do what she does - she really is “tiny but mighty”” Read More ▾
‟Laurie helped my wife and I buy our first home. We had very little idea what we were doing, and Laurie's advice was indispensable. She educated and encouraged us through the process, helped us gauge our risks and potentials until we felt comfortable, and when the time came to close the deal, Laurie helped us get what we want, how we wanted it. … It has been with great pleasure that we've watched Laurie grow her business and reputation. At the same time, she has been a continued resource to us in seeking advice on upgrades and remodeling. Laurie really is our "agent for life.” Read More ▾
‟Friendly, Quick Response, Knowledgeable! Laurie’s quick response time and friendly personality helped ease my stress while looking for properties. It was great to finally meet a Realtor who, instead of trying to sell everything, was honest, knowledgeable and straightforward and really respected my time and needs.”
‟Tiny but mighty! I had been getting Laurie's door hangars and was impressed by her successful community events, multifamily yard sales, and her signs seemed to be everywhere in the neighborhood here in Venice. When the time came to sell a property I owned with my sister in law, I called Laurie. The house was in LA on the West Hollywo … od border and I thought it might be out of Laurie's operational zone. "Not a problem, I'll go take a look at it and let you know". Within 2 days Laurie was showing it to a prospective buyer who unfortunately didn't want to pay what we were asking. When the prospective buyer left, Laurie walked down the street to where another house was being built and sold it to the developer there for 40K more than we were asking and higher than a comp that had just sold down the street. This was all before the house was even officially listed, and she secured a non refundable deposit from the buyer before we had even signed any paperwork with her. The entire sale from start to finish including escrow took about 2 weeks. It was not the experience we anticipated, it went so smoothly. She was a pleasure to work with, had an escrow company that knew what they were doing and the whole thing was painless. Tiny but mighty…..thank you Lauri” Read More ▾

‟Laurie helped me buy my first place and worked hard to make it a seamless process for me. In under a week of reaching out to her to tell her I was ready to start looking, I made an offer on a place and got accepted. She helped me every step of the way from the loan, inspections, paper works and overall advice on things I didn't know much about, l … ike how to clean my new counter-tops :). She is extremely responsive day and night, and you can tell she really cares about her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone, she gets the job done in record time” Read More ▾
‟My husband and I have worked with Laurie on the purchase of two properties - in Venice as well as a Culver City - as well as finding a tenant for both properties. Both experiences were great and I would highly recommend her. Laurie works as hard as any realtor I've ever seen to stay ahead of the game, doing the legwork to find appropriate propertie … s, offering excellent insights, and doing the follow up to make sure nothing has been missed. Its also a pleasure to work directly with her; not two or three other "associates" who need the backstory every time you see them. I look forward to working with Laurie in the future - she's a real gem!” Read More ▾

‟I cannot say enough good things about Laurie Woolner. We met her 3 years ago at an open house in Mar Vista. She asked us some questions and told us that the house she was showing wasn't right for our family. We were surprised by her candor and honesty. And she was completely right. It wasn't the right house. A few years later, whe … n we ready to sell our house, we didn't hesitate. We called Laurie. We are thrilled we did. We already had an offer to buy our house "as-is" for what we thought was a good price. Even better, we wouldn't have to do anything to prepare our house for sale. (Two working parents with kids, we didn't have a lot of time to oversee fixing up the house for a sale.) But Laurie told us not to take the as-is offer. She knew the area and the market. She assured us she could get us a lot more and that she would handle everything. We just needed to trust her. We did. She helped us find an amazing rental home. Once we moved out of the house, we didn't have to lift a finger. Within two weeks -- Laurie had our home re-painted, our fixtures updated, landscape redone and our house beautifully staged. She got great deals on the materials and labor so it wasn't costly. And within ten days of our house being listed, we had multiple offers. Laurie is an amazingly strong negotiator. The sale went smoother than I ever expected. We made more money than we expected. And we're thrilled with our decision to use Laurie. We will use her again when we're ready to buy our next house. And we will recommend her to all of our friends an family” Read More ▾
