Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Woodbridge, Irvine, CA.
Laurie represented my mother in the purchase of a home in the Woodbridge village of Irvine. Laurie's expertise in negotiation allowed my mother to close the transaction in 30 days with a revised offer that was substantially below the original offer. Laurie and her assistant Bernadette provided referrals for every type of contractor, and held my mother's hand throughout the process. Laurie kept us continually apprised of the negotiations, and was extremely responsive to both phone calls and e-mail messages. She was thoroughly professional, and I highly recommend her to anyone purchasing a home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.625M in Newport Beach, CA.
I am pleased to have had an opportunity to work with Laurie. She listed our house June/July 2014 and it closed September 29, 2014. I love her very affable, sincere, easy to get along with style. Her zero pressure approach is one you immediately trust. Huge plus given the dollars and emotions involved. She also has the capability of seeing and effectively communicating all points of view. Our home sale was contingent upon the buyer selling their home within a very short time. It got a little complicated and she navigated though it beautifully.The only pressure I ever felt from Laurie was the pressure she put on herself to make "us" happy. Laurie's impressive success is not an accident or a good run of luck. She has what it takes.

Laurie was fantastic with helping us purchase our home and getting all of our paperwork to us quickly. In addition, she answered my million questions and was happy to do so...(Yes, had too many questions and she was gracious and walked me through all of them.) THANK YOU Laurie for helping me/us buy 'my' first home in my DREAM location!!!

One thing I have learned over time is that it pays to have the best professionals working for you in important situations - an excellent doctor, sharp lawyer, creative accountant and thorough financial advisor make all the difference in the world. With our recent house purchase it made all the difference that we had Laurie Eastman representing us. She's the total package - smart, experienced, professional - she missed nothing and handled everything beautifully. We would highly recommend Laurie.
We just hooked up with Laurie thru zillow 3 months ago with not great expectstion to work out well. After first meeting, we liked her work ethics and professionalism. Most impressive is her response to any question we have. For second home buyer, typically not from local community, there is someone taking care of the details is so cruicial. She is one of the best agents we ever worked. Thanks Laurie.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.725M in Newport Beach, CA.
Laurie is a bright, energetic and knowledgeable real estate person. Her knowledge of the area is exceptional. She grew up in Newport Beach and has a broad understanding of the schools, politics and the housing market. She is leader in her office and continues to be so with outstanding results. She encouraged Linda and myself to continue the sales effort during the Christmas Holiday and that is when we had an offer. Our thought was to go silent over the holidays. Thank you Laurie for being so helpful during the process.
She always reinforced that "Everything will work out" and she was correct. Super knowledgeable about NB neighborhoods, always responsive via phone/text, knows most agents who were hosting open houses we attended, honest/will do the right thing for you, will go back to the other party with negotiation requests, and has a sense when to steer clear of a transaction that does not fit your needs.
Laurie made selling our house the most pleasant experience we could have hoped for. She was professional, always available, full of life, fully knowledgeable, extremely helpful and went well above the call of duty. Not only would we recommend Laurie to others, we will be sure to use her in all future deals.
We found Laurie through these Zillow reviews. After meeting her in person, I felt very comfortable with her friendly and easy going attitude. She spent a lot of time showing many houses on the market to find our style and our budget. After each visit, she was lightly following up and I felt she was very experienced as well as honest with her recommendations/feedback. Although she has a very easy going attitude, when it comes to placing an offer and winning a bid she was very aggressive and tough in negotiating and getting what you are looking for. I referred Laurie to my family and friends and they feel the same way too. She will be my relater for a long time and I am happy to use her for future purchases.
