She is also well liked and knows most of the agents around town which makes deal making in this crazy market much easier. I cannot recommend her more!”

‟Laurie bills herself as "tiny but mighty" and truer words were never spoken. She helped us turn our property around in less than two weeks, bringing qualified prospects soon after we were listed. A mighty feat, to be sure! She was at all times professional, responsible and responsive and I highly recommend her for your real estate needs.”

‟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 ▾

‟To say that Laurie is Tiny but Mighty is a bit of an understatement. It's more accurate to describe her as a force of nature. We recently sold at a great price, the market was just starting to swing back, but like Cool-Hand Luke she worked the angels just right. The staging was wonderful. She found us multiple quotes from vendors to match our price point and really presented the property. A lot of Realtors will force their people on you, but she had a great variety to choose from, that we ended up with a very polished product that attracted a most satisfactory final price. All communication was timely and documents were easily handled online using docusign. ” Read More ▾

‟What can I not say about Laurie??? First of all, I bought my first home with Laurie as my realtor. She got me in on a pocket listing that fit my every want and it was a done deal a week later. She's perfection. She's all business but makes it fun... So of course 6 years later I was going to use her again. I gave Laurie my husband's & my requirement s, wants, needs, etc for the next home we wanted and she got on it. She does her homework. Laurie had such a plan of attack for me when we got together to see homes in person, there was no wasting time and we just knocked them out! I found my dream home in a few weeks, the home I will live in the rest of my life. She really is tiny but mighty!! Laurie is so knowledgeable and really gets the neighborhoods... She is super patient and understanding of wants and needs... She's super kind and so fun to spend days house shopping with. If we ever buy another home for any purpose, Laurie is the lady! Can't thank her enough for making house shopping, going through the whole process and closing the deal so easy and simple. And when we sell our other home I will list it with Laurie too!! Thanks Laurie!” 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 ▾

‟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 ▾

‟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 was the perfect agent for us in the sale of our Mar Vista home. We wanted hands-on guidance from an agent who is personally engaged, not someone who would pass us on to their assistant. We so appreciated the personal approach. Laurie is extremely familiar with the Mar Vista and Venice neighborhoods of Los Angeles and knew exac tly how to price and market the house. She made smart constructive suggestions as to how we could add value. We followed her suggestions and, through her tough negotiating skills, sold the house SUBSTANTIALLY over asking. We could not have been happier with Laurie's service and the transaction, and feel so fortunate to have had her on our side.” Read More ▾

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 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 ▾

‟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 ▾

‟Laurie and made the process of selling our house so easy and comfortable. She had the best handyman, painters, electrician and gardener ready to go and in 2 weeks she transformed our house into a magazine ad. We trusted her every choice for improvement and it turned out amazing. She also carefully monitored the inspections, kept us up to date with the offers, and was ALWAYS available when we had questions or concerns. She also knew when we were fading with our end of the sorting, donating and packing, offering experts to intervene. She truly is a fairy godmother” Read More ▾

‟I would like to highly recommend Laurie Woolner, as the realtor who helped us sell our house in Venice. She is very enthusiastic and wonderful to work with, as well as being very well informed on the real estate market in our area. Her skill and expertise were instrumental in obtaining a sale price significantly higher than our asking price. I n a process that can inevitably produce tensions and anxieties, she was consistently patient and professional, and her communication was excellent from beginning to end. In our case, we took her suggestion to "stage" the house for showings, and I believe that we more than made back this investment, as reflected in the higher sale price.

‟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 ▾

‟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 ▾

‟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 ▾

‟Anyone can sell your home in today’s market, but who can get you the highest price, while keeping the stress of selling to a minimum? Laurie. What a phenomenal experience! She sold our house for $212,000 over list price in 1 week, which was way beyond our wildest imaginings. Knowing that she is so experienced, we followed all her advice. She made it so easy for us with the “A" team who transformed our charming 2 bed, 1 bath house into a dream home. I don’t think any other agent goes to the lengths that Laurie does, arriving with truck full of plants, choosing paint samples, having them applied, sending in the “A” team to paint and redecorate. It seemed like she did everything for us. Truly, we could never have managed this on our own. Laurie is not just a “hard” worker. She is a “miracle worker”.
