‟Selling Our Home with Laurie Woolner Have to say, working with Laurie Woolner on our house sale was an unexpected pleasure. After meeting a handful of very qualified agents we decided to go with her simply because she made us feel safe. Not that the other agents weren't pleasant or professional, but we seemed to have a communication … shorthand with Laurie from the get-go, and that continued throughout the process. She probably met with us a half dozen times before we finally decided to "list", coaching us and listening to our concerns, partly because we were buying another house in another state and weren't quite ready to sign. No pressure ever. When we finally decided it was a go, Laurie sprung into action. We followed her advise practically to the letter, painting and refurbishing the interior and exterior, dry walling and painting the garage, tweaking the landscaping, and finally staging with furniture that wasn't necessarily our taste, but when finished, showed the potential of the house to a more contemporary crowd. She had great people lined up for every task, who came in on time with wonderful attitudes, and helped in many ways we didn't even know we needed help in. Wonderful experience. Probably took a few weeks all told, and when we were finally ready for the open house, she treated it like a once in a lifetime event. And she was there on hand for it all, guiding us, cajoling us, supporting us in every way. Of course we had multiple offers within the first week and she navigated those waters brilliantly, ultimately breaking all records in our area for 2+1. Her support didn't stop at the sale either. Through each step of the escrow she was there to help, looking out for our interests, even got a second opinion when a couple questionable inspectors tried to put one over on us. We were so thankful we had her in our corner and feel as though we forged a new friendship throughout the process. As far as I'm concerned, if you're looking for a caring real estate agent to list your home with, you owe it to yourself to sit down with Laurie before you finalize your decision” 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.”
‟Laurie helped us from the beginning to the very end. She was professional, approachable, and extremely knowledgeable. She listened to our every need, and successfully sold our home. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone.”
‟Ready to buy or sell a house on the Westside? Then look no further than Laurie Woolner. From start to finish, she makes the complicated process of buying and selling real estate hassle-free and even fun! Laurie's knowledge of the highly competitive real estate market is amazing! She will handle all the details of the selling process in a profession … al, energetic, and conscientious manner. After living in our Venice home for over 40 years, we were nervous about selling a home for the first time. Laurie educated us on the many details of selling our home and made sure we got top dollar for it in the process! After our first open house, we received an offer on our home $70,000 over the asking price! We felt like Laurie's only clients even though she is one of the most highly sought after agents in Venice. In addition to her passion for her job, Laurie cares about the community and supports many projects in the Venice/Mar Vista area. We loved working with Laurie and treasure the friendship that has developed through the sale of our home. We would refer her services to anyone without reservation” Read More ▾
‟Laurie came on board after another realtor was unable to help us sell our West Side home. She came in, a spark plug of energy and positivity, prepared with a sobering but fair assessment of our property and the marketplace to level set expectations. She introduced a marketing and staging gameplan to attract the most qualified leads, which resulted … in a multiple offer situation in short order. Was it stressful? Yes, selling your home always is. Did she help assuage our fears and shepherd us through the process? She went above and beyond. In fact, she even lent us her open house signs for the garage sale we had before moving, going so far as to print and post our address with 'Yard Sale' to help spread the word. Her and her team even dog sat our little guy during private showings so we didn't have that to worry about in the middle of the workday. She just helped, in any way that she could, to make our lives easier. On the flip side, the buying experience went just as smoothly. She was our advocate and record keeper for the things the seller promised, and she stayed on top of our lender and our escrow company herself to ensure our closing stayed on track. In a million other ways large and small Laurie Woolner was a genuine partner through our sale and purchase. I would recommend her unreservedly. And while I believe that she helped us into our 'forever home', if for some reason we do need to go through this process again she will without a doubt be my first call.” Read More ▾
‟This letter is intended for anyone considering retaining Laurie Woolner as his or her listing agent. We recently worked with Laurie to sell our home and could not recommend her more highly. Laurie is basically a ?"One-Stop Shop" for anything related to the sale of your property. She not only makes the home look amazing through wonderful remodeling/ … touch-ups, staging and photographs, but also really takes ownership of the entire process. That means she brings in her contractors, stager, photographer, etc. and runs the entire process from start to finish. You can be as involved or un-involved as you wish, and of course you make the final decisions, but Laurie takes what you give her, maximizes it and then pushes it over the finish line. In our experience, this is very unusual for a real estate agent, but it is a testament to her energy, enthusiasm and effectiveness. Luckily, she also has a great eye for how to make a home appealing to buyer . In the end, this formula makes for a property that will show as well as possible, clean, bright and move-in ready. We are convinced that this is why the process was so ?painless and smooth” Read More ▾
‟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 ▾
‟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 ▾
