Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Santa Clara, Hayward, CA.

It was my first time buying a house and was really nervous to commit mistakes. I research online, read reviews everywhere and found Laura's profile here in Zillow. I dig deeper by checking Laura's online profiles like her main website, blogs and even facebook profile. I knew then that she would be the perfect fit for my real estate needs.

I really learned a lot from her as I've been asking her a lot of questions through emails or phone calls. As we keep checking on different properties, my confidence build up that I'd get the perfect house for me and my wife through Laura's help. After few months we got a very beautiful and well updated 3br Condo that we really like and I and my wife are really happy and satisfied here in our new home now.

With Laura, there are no surprises as she will let you know every details or everything you need from finding a home to closing it.

If you are a new home buyer, Laura will be the perfect fit for you. If you had bought a house before and looking to buy or move to a new house, you will definitely benefit from Laura's real estate knowledge and expertise.

My take, you'll never go wrong with Laura. Trust me!

Bought a home in 2012 in Cherryland, Hayward, CA 94541.

My husband found Laura here on Zillow to help us with a home purchase in the Bay Area, for our son. We live 2 hours away from there, and it was very important to find someone with that get up and go drive, she, Laura has it, all. The follow-up, got right back to us even when she had a lot going on, and always had all the details in order. There was no question to small. Laura was there anytime for the 3 of us. We can not say enough good things about Laura, it made our stressful time much easier. You can not go wrong with Laura on your side.  More Less
