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, when 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.
