Why use “Tiny…but Mighty?” Finding the right agent can make all the difference.

‟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 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 ▾

‟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 ▾

‟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 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.”

‟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 exactly 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 ▾
