Laura was wonderful. Thats the bottom line. Read on if you want to know more. We worked with Laura in 2012 as the market started to heat up. She helped us formulate our offers and worked with us in finding places that matched our desires. She was even able to turn us onto some new neighborhoods that we hadn't considered -- but that were good matches for us. We ended up settling in one of those locations! She helped us become comfortable with the realities of finding a home in the bay area. This included how much to bid on listings and how to best structure offers to make them more compelling to the sellers. She was extremely patient and spent plenty of time, often late into the evening making sure our strategy was set. We also had the experience of seeing her in a somewhat "non-standard" situation. We ended up in a situation in which our deposit became at risk and things became extremely complicated. Sparing the details, i'll just say that she exemplifies "professional integrity". She helped us through this tricky situation helped to resolved the situation in a manner that was satisfactory to all, and avoided a protracted legal fight (the only other possible outcome). She has a network of people that she works with (contractors, painters, gardeners...) and that is helpful if you need someone to come look at something to get a sense for how much it'll be to actually fix up. I presume on the sell side its useful for her to setup and stage places. But i've only been on the buy side using her. She did invite us to one of her showings just to see the place -- and she did a great job showing that place. I recommend Laura to everyone I know that is looking for a home. She has worked with some of my friends as a result, and also had good results for them. Less ... More

We were very pleased with Laura Bryant?s professional assistance during our home purchase in 2012. Purchasing a home in SF Bay area is not a simple and easy task. The bidding wars and cash buyers are very common. The most important quality of a good realtor is that he or she can professionally guide you through the buying process which includes understanding and explaining the legal terms in the contracts, negotiating the price, evaluating competing offers from other buyers, communicating effectively with the seller?s agent and his and her client, and providing post-closing support. Laura was able to do all of the above professionally and in timely manner. Laura helped us through the entire process and we found our ?fixer upper? that we were looking for. She took time to listen to our ?ideal home list?, which we thought was quite impossible to find. She kept us informed and provided insightful advice. The final offer process involved many back and forth negotiations. She went above and beyond to help us get the home inspection done and negotiated the price down to our price range. Laura is also very personal. Although we did not know Laura before we got introduced to her via a good friend, we feel like we have known her for a long time. She is just a very sweet and compassionate person. Laura is exceptional in her service. She has the knowledge and expertise of the market condition in the Bay Area. We could not have done this without her! We highly recommend Laura to anyone! Less ... More

Thank you very much for your help with the recent sale and close of our home! You recommended a pricing strategy that generated multiple offers above our asking price! I would have no hesitancy to recommend you to family and friends; your instincts, professionalism, knowledge, and your willingness to do whatever it takes to put the sale together were top notch! We appreciated not only "your" expertise but also the expertise and support from the team you have assembled to help with the other events associated with the sale of our home. The designer who staged the home, the contractor and trades folks who helped with any repairs, the house cleaning and moving team that helped in those roles. They were all wonderful! Our best to you and thank you again!!! Less ... More

Laura was my agent when I was looking to sell my townhouse out in Foster City. She was instrumental in helping me optimize my property including remodels, presentation and negotiations. She is responsive, consultative(not pushy) and detailed oriented. Ultimately, she is what you want in an agent. I can't recommend her enough and I hope to one day work with her again.

Our experience in working with many agents over the years as both buyers and sellers has been good but no one ever as amazing as Laura. Her engaged and focused attention in our home search has been fantastic. Her knowledge and experience has been invaluable!

She worked so hard- always available to us. Made is a stress free sale. She put out all the "fires" along the way. She made a plan with the open houses and time to open bids and stuck to it. Lots of extra touches long the way. I would recommend her highly to everyone.

My family was planning to move to the Peninsula. Laura was most helpful in showing us around and educating us about the market. She is truly professional, very knowledge, and a wonderful person. At the end, our circumstances changed and we did not move. All the same, we are most grateful to her help and would recommend her to anyone who is moving to the Bay Area.

Laura was referred to me by a friend (a friend who does research on everything!) and now, I refer Laura to EVERYONE I know. She is so personable and knowledgable and patient. Aside from being a great person, she is a great realtor, advisor, listener and negotiator. She knows the market, she knows people in the industry. She is a high-touch realtor and I value her expertise and knowledge A LOT. Through Laura, we found our home and put a preemptive offer a couple hours after it came on the market. On top of that, she had an expert look at our HOA docs and was able to reduce our contract price by more than ten grand. I mean, this lady will go to bat for you!! On top of that, she helped me find our investment property within a year of finding our home. It's really hard to find a realtor, or even a person you trust! She is a gem. You will thoroughly enjoy working with her. Less ... More

I know Laura well because she worked with me and my husband for the better part of a year to find the perfect home. She is knowledgeable, hardworking and committed to closing the deal. Laura is strong when negotiating, but always understanding and empathetic with her clients. She has great relationships with other realtors, city officials, contractors, etc., all of which were critical to us as we worked through the process of of purchasing our home. She is truly special and is the best realtor I have ever met! Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
We have worked with my realtors previously and I can not say enough about Laura. She is very professional, personal and efficient in everything she does. She is very sweet and truly deals with you as part of the family. Although I have known Laura for a short time, I feel like I have known her for many years and still try to keep in touch with her. She really takes excellent care and understands your needs and her knowledge in the field is beyond words. I would highly recommend her to anyone and please feel free to have anyone call me with questions about her and her services. The only reason she was unable to sell my home was because I changed my mind in selling at this time. Less ... More

I cant express enough how greatful I am to have met Laura. I was a first time, out of state seller from Washington and I inherited the home in San Mateo CA. I interviewed many realtors and I couldn't have been happier with my experience working with Laura. From minute one Laura was very knowledgeable, she made selling the house an absolutely painless process, she was there to answer any of my questions ( I had lots ) any time of day, seven days a week, she was there for me. I could go on and on about my experience but words cant describe enough how thankful I am for all the hard work Laura put into selling my house. She went well above and beyond the call of duty for me. I recently bought a home in Arizona and would have loved nothing more than to have Laura be my realtor here as well. Thank you Laura :) Less ... More

Foster City CA May 6 2012 To Whom It May Concern: My name is Frank Chambers. I am a retired chemist and chemistry professor having worked at Aragon High, Skyline College, and Genentech. I have lived in San Mateo County for forty years and am proud to call San Mateo my home. I am pleased to have the opportunity to write this letter recommending Laura Bryant my real estate agent. Laura helped me to sell my Burlingame CA home in September 2009. I was so impressed with her skills during a challenging economic environment that I selected her to assist me with the purchase of my Foster City home in February 2010. In addition, I have recommended her to a number of clleagues and friends. She will be my real estate expert for any future commercial or personal transactions. Laura did excellent work completing functions required for listing, staging, negotiating, and completing escrow for my former Burlingame home. Her energy and attention to detail were essential in assisting me to negotiate and finally complete a complicated purchase of my Foster City residence. There is much more to Laura's capabilities than excellent sales and management skills. She has genuine interest in helping her clients prepare and make good choices. In addition, she will work calmly to assist them through difficult emotional and technical circumstances. It is her attention to customer service that makes her an excellent real estate agent and an outstanding individual. She has my highest recomendation. My e-mail is listed below. Please do not hesitate to contactme if I can provide any additional information or assistance. Sincerely, Frank Chambers burl450@yahoo.com Less ... More

We used Laura to sell our property and buy a new property. In a market that was not seller friendly, she was able to get us multiple offers and we sold our property for above asking price in a short period of time. Laura is personable, friendly and a great person to work with on both ends. Highly recommend her services.

Laura was fantastic -- she was unbelievably dedicated to me throughout the process. It was a complicated transaction and she not only guided me through it expertly, she managed to keep me calm and focused at the same time. At one point, I was freaked out and thought I might want to pull out -- instead of pressuring me, she sat down and really listened to my concerns, addressed them, and helped me think through other options. I really felt like she was my advocate -- she demonstrated impeccable ethics at every point while still giving great tactical advice and showing a great sense of humor on top of it all. I just can't say enough about Laura -- even now, months after the close, she is still helping and advising me. Incredible. Less ... More

Laura is a great agent, no doubt, but it is her soft skills that sets her apart -- great communication regarding the process, works with our schedules, understands the challenges that we as sellers faced given that we have small children (worked around our schedules as much as possible).

The first time I've met Laura was when I responded to Laura's listing. Right away I was impressed by her knowledge of the area and neighborhoods of San Francisco and Peninsula.. We set a meeting to discuss goals and action items to achieve them. Laura was very knowledgeable and informative about every single step in the process of buying a real estate. We talked about credit scores, financial part, negotiation process, we discussed pros and cons and pretty much everything I should expect when buying. I realized then that I need a lot to do before we start... Fast forward... when I was ready to buy and got my financials ready - we started looking at places. I was absolutely amazed how many properties we looked at and every tine Laura was patient and understanding to my specific needs at the time. When I finally found what I was looking for, Laura did a great job negotiating the price that made the seller and myself happy. I am planing to make another investment purchase and Laura is the only Agent I will work with. Less ... More
