What Laura’s Clients Say

407 El Toyonal, Orinda

“I inherited a family home, and I don’t live in the area, so Laura made all the arrangements to have the house fixed up at a reasonable cost. She went above and beyond to organize people and the projects that needed to get accomplished. She always kept me apprised of what was happening and the timetable to completion. Because of Laura’s knowledge of the community, she was often one step ahead of any problems and as a result no delays occurred. She answered all my questions promptly. She explained the process perfectly and was able to present the home beautifully. As a result of her hard work, we received substantially more money for the house than I could have hoped for.”

Glad that I found Laura, she is like no other agent that I have worked with in the past. She was so detailed about preparing the home.  Makes selling the house an easy and FUN experience.  Will definitely recommend her for anyone looking to sell or buy a home.”

19 Candlestick, Orinda

“Laura moved the sale of our home to a very successful conclusion in a changing market. We were very pleased with her attention to detail, being always available & answering all of our inquiries with straight forthright responses. She also held the house open every weekend, which was instrumental in the sale of our home. She recommended several trades people to improve our property and followed their progress to our satisfaction.  We could not be more happy with her efforts.”

31 Nottingham Place, Clayton

“Laura did a great job representing us in the sale of our Lafayette home and subsequently the purchase and sale of  our Clayton home. She also was effective in persuading the out of area agent to accept our offer on our replacement property.  Her experience and knowledge of the local market was instrumental in the preparation, marketing and sale of our house.  She helped us understand the sales process and was always available when we had questions or concerns.  We highly recommend her real estate services.”

“The sell and buy transaction with Laura was very smooth. I bought a home in Rossmoor and sold one in Orinda.

It took a year to find the perfect Rossmoor home and she worked with me every step of the way. Laura was very competent, knowledgeable, and responsive. I was extremely happy with the outcome, as I know the buyers on my home were too.”

75 Stanton Court, Orinda

“I have known and worked with Laura for years. She supervised the market preparation on my home and took it all very personal. We filtered through the multiple offers and ended up with the most reliable buyer at the best price. And then she worried about my purchase out of the area and was I being represented properly. She is just the best!”

1 Madera Lane, Orinda

“Laura is  the hardest working agent we have ever met. She went above and beyond. Her tenacity is remarkable. This deal  never would have come together without her. We can’t recommend her highly enough. Plus all dogs love her and that made it easier!”

40 Camino Don Miguel, Orinda

“We have worked with and known Laura for years and when we decided to sell we of course worked with her. She worked with us to get the house ready for sale very effectively. She guided us through our disclosure obligations. The photos were gorgeous, and we received multiple offers after four days on the market.

We closed escrow in a week!”

2 Bien Venida, Orinda

“We were lucky as we called Laura after seeing an advertisement.  We had interviewed other agents, but Laura was the only agent who was positive about selling our home. She supervised all the market preparation, and the staging was wonderful.  We were successful selling our home and we couldn’t have been happier with the transaction. We kept thinking what if we had not called Laura. We don’t think any other agent could have made our home so inviting. We are very grateful.”

5 La Noria, Orinda

“Laura is a terrific agent. We handed her the keys and moved out and she took care of all the market preparation including meeting the fire district requirement to remove dead trees. Her service providers were reasonable, and the home showed beautifully. We were happy with the resulting sale and feel fortunate that we found Laura to work with.”

105 Ardith, Orinda

“Laura is an absolute pleasure to work with and we have her to thank for owing the house of our dreams! She is extremely responsive and works tirelessly to ensure each step of the process is executed successfully. She is also very knowledgeable and always has her clients’ best interests at heart.”

Erron & Scott

“My husband and I have been clients of Laura Abrams since 2002. Laura helped us with the purchase and sale of our first home and recently the purchase of our second larger home. In all cases we were in multiple bid situations and her knowledge of the East Bay real estate market (vendors, rules, and other realtors) served us well. We managed to buy low and sell high all 3 times.

I would highly recommend Laura to buyers or sellers as she can walk both sides with ease. On the buy side, she kept us from buying some real lemons and she discovered some incredibly timely opportunities before others. On the sales side, she was able to get our house on the market ahead of schedule with everything perfectly in place. The open houses were well timed and it was priced with consideration of the local market and the current competition. We received multiple offers and may have set a price per square foot record for the neighborhood. And…we hardly lifted a finger.

Laura treats clients like family, fighting for their best interests no matter what. Laura is always available to answer questions and/or step in for her clients as a proxy when contractors and other logistics are needed. She is reliable and hands on. Her attention and connection lasts well beyond the close; she truly enjoys seeing our family realize the dreams we’ve had for our properties.”
