‟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 ▾
‟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”. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!” Read More ▾

It is clear that she is committed to being the best Realtor she can be. I TOTALLY trust her and would recommend her to anyone I know. Thanks for going above and beyond Laurie!!”
‟Laurie was amazing from start to finish! Her local knowledge of the market meant we put our house up for the best price and sold it quickly! She was always available to answer any questions we had and her professional skill and care made the whole process easy!”
‟We would recommend the Woolner Group with absolutely no reservations, to any prospective buyer or seller. You owe it to yourself to contact Laurie Woolner before settling on an agent. Her team has helped me buy and sell properties in Venice and the Westside. Forget others' flashy gimmicks, Laurie is the real deal and her team has always delivered.”
‟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 ▾
‟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 ▾
‟We found Laurie through a glowing recommendation from one of my coworkers while we were looking to buy our first home and I find myself recommending her constantly now. She made a very complicated and intimidating process easy and accessible, gave us FANTASTIC advice about where to look, how to handle offers, etc. She's knowledgeable about and inve … sted in the Westside community and I couldn't be more grateful for her help and guidance” 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 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 ▾
