Laura is the consummate real estate professional - zero sleaze factor, zero pushy, yet detail oriented, proactive, prompt and extremely well versered in the market, market factors and conditions and exactly what it will take to get your property sold. Both my wife and I highly recommend the insight, integrity and intelligence of Laura Bertolacci.
Sold a Single Family home in 2004 in Redwood City, CA.
I've known Laura for 10 years now and she was the sellers agent when we bought our first house. I stayed in contact with Laura over the years and she helped advise us of changes in the market, trends, etc. Once we decided it was time to start looking, we knew we'd use Laura to sell and buy our homes as she had not only the expertise and inventory in the area we wanted to buy and sell (Redwood City) she also had plenty of qualified buyers lined up to buy off market if necessary. As expected, the transaction was flawless on both ends and Laura kept us in the loop every step of the way. I can't recommend Laura enough to anyone who wants a clean, efficient, pleasant and above all professional real estate agent who knows the ropes and will get the deal done every time - regardless of the hurdles. Client for life!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.325M in Half Moon Bay, CA.
This is the second time we have worked with Laura. The first time she helped us buy our home in San Carlos. Things went great that time so we engaged her for our latest transition from San Carlos to Half Moon Bay.
Laura has complete knowledge of both areas, and was a professional throughout. Laura also managed to pull off a concurrent close of our sale and purchase within 24 hours of each other, quite an impressive logistics feat.
I would recommend Laura to anyone who is looking for a professional that knows their business, the area and herds all the cats for you.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Los Prados, San Mateo, CA.
Extremely knowledgeable, strategic, and savvy!
Selling our home: Laura managed every facet of selling our home to perfection. Many of us in silicon valley strive for flawless execution and Laura embodies this. Couple this with her savvy and you have a combo that is very difficult to match.
Buying our home: unlike most people we purchased a home across the country and leveraged Laura to help locate a suitable agent and advise us during the negotiation process. Laura's understand of the buying process and negotiations is phenomenal!
I think you'd be making a mistake if you didn't at least speak with her about fulfilling you buying / selling needs (obviously, i think you should just utilize her but ...).
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.075M in Belmont, CA.
Laura Bertolacci did a fantastic job of helping us sell our house. She was with us every step of the way: getting inspections done; selecting new carpet, paint, bathroom and light fixtures; finding contractors; preparing disclosures; coordinating with the stagers; and marketing. She got us multiple offers, all over asking and we closed just three weeks after listing. We would not hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone looking to sell a house on the Peninsula.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.15M in Redwood City, CA.
I chose Laura to list my Redwood City home because of her reputation in our neighborhood for good service and knowledge of the local market. She provided excellent service and did indeed have a thorough understanding of what was happening in and around our neighborhood. Laura is creative, caring and very capably handled every step of the transaction. I signed the seller’s papers and left for Turkey nine days before the sale was to close. My confidence in Laura’s abilities were rewarded and sale closed on time. KBE
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.0M in Serra, Sunnyvale, CA.
I was so thrilled with my first experience selling a house with Laura that I used her services again 18 months later. I believe that a house is your biggest investment, and as such, it deserves the most experienced professional in the area. I found Laura by comparing agents who worked full-time, had over 10 years experience (Laura has over 25 years), who use technology widely and expertly to reach today's buyers.
The first house was inherited property, and I had a small budget to work with. The second house was my own, and I was prepared to upgrade to be able to sell for top dollar. In both cases, Laura made it easy with her cadre of contracting professionals to highlight the best of each house. Laura doesn't have just one way of getting a house ready to sell; she knows her service areas, employers nearby, and what makes a house appeal to a buyer. By personally managing so many aspects of getting a house ready to sell, Laura frees her clients to focus on other goals.
I was blown away by Laura's interest and ability in negotiation and her facility using technology for marketing. Those abilities set her apart for me.
Laura doesn't advertise her integrity, but that also impressed me. She makes choices to be professional and authentic. Other agents respect her and want to work with her.
In spite of the downturn in the housing market, Laura sold both houses for well above asking price. One house was on the market for 10 days, and the other for 5 days. One house sold right before Christmas, and the other right before summer. If you have an experienced professional like Laura, upturn/downturn, time of year, tiny budget or huge, you can expect a satisfying return on your biggest investment.
Laura does not pressure people. Put her on your list of agents to interview, and start the conversation.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.075M in San Carlos, CA.
Laura helped us sell my mother-in-law's home. A dated home, great location, tough market. We closed 8 days after putting it on the market! She knew exactly how to market this home and was an unbelievable help in preparing the house for sale. We listened to her advise and are very happy we did!
