I am very proud to have received my MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA!  My past work experience and business education has helped me successfully assist many buyers and sellers over the past ten years! 

My clients choose to work with me for my straightforward, enthusiastic and patient approach. I love helping buyers figure out what qualities are most important to them in a home and guiding them through their options. For sellers, I really enjoy the process of getting the property ready and developing a sales strategy that will achieve the highest possible sales price. I take a lot of pride in my accessibility and responsiveness - providing superior customer service is extremely important to me! That's why I use technologies like DocuSign, a digital signature program, which makes the buying and selling process much easier for my clients who usually have extremely busy schedules!

It is so important to have a trusted, seasoned advisor helping you when buying real estate, probably the biggest purchase you will ever make in your life. Working with a home buyer is much more to me than conducting a business transaction; I enjoy getting to know each of my clients and helping them achieve their dreams of home ownership. I always put my clients' interests first - you can be assured that I am 100% on your side!

Ultimately, the best way to learn about me is to read through the many client testimonials posted on my website and on Yelp!** I hope you will check them out and if it sounds like a good fit, please contact me to set up a time to discuss your real estate needs. I will look forward to hearing from you.

Sold a home in 2013.

I am pleased to recommend Laura and her partner Vicki to anyone wanting highly competent and knowledgeable real estate professionals. Laura and Vicki are top-flight when it comes to knowledge of the market and marketing strategies. They were easy to work with and exceeded our expectations with respect to scheduling and coordinating the myriad details required to market and close the sale.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.4M in Forest Hill Extension, San Francisco, CA.

I can't say enough great things about our Realtor, Laura Kaufman - she is a very experienced, knowledgeable, organized and patient real estate agent. Laura listed our house in San Francisco and was very professional from the beginning. She selected a listing price which ended up working out wonderfully as it sold significantly over asking. She outlined what we needed to do by when, the associated costs and was always willing to do any of the items herself, i.e. babysit any of our 3 kids, wait for a handyman or inspector, etc. And during the process, Laura was extremely calm and flexible especially since our house and life were in flux. She communicated throughout the process so I never felt like I was in the dark or didn't know what was happening at any point during the selling process.

She did an amazing marketing job - she promoted our house at multiple brokers tours, on the cover of the San Francisco Examiner, via social media, friends and other realtors. With all the work she did as our Realtor, we ended up with 22 offers and by the time we reviewed them, she had already negotiated with the buyers' agents on terms before presenting the top 3 to us. That process was very smooth and basically stress free.

Furthermore, as a real estate agent goes, Laura has a great referral network and had names of experienced people for whatever we needed and she followed up with everyone of them to ensure the work was done professionally and in a timely fashion. She is the best Realtor out there and one couldn't ask for a better real estate agent. I would definitely use Laura again as a real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $825K in Potrero Hill, San Francisco, CA.

Laura is the most responsive professional I have ever encountered. Her quick response times alleviated much of the potential stress that can come with real estate transactions. I liked and felt comfortable with Laura from the very beginning, starting with her inviting and informative website. There she explains exactly how she will work with you as either a buyer or seller.

Laura is knowledgeable, sharp, efficient and caring. As a first time and out-of-state seller, she handled every aspect on the ground in San Francisco for me with care, timeliness and constant communication. She kept me up-to-date on the property with photos and video and provided timelines for action. We managed documentation electronically. Dealing with the complexities of selling a tenant-occupied property in San Francisco, she enlisted top notch real estate [Zephyr] and legal advice before we took steps forward. She was the ultimate diplomat in working with the tenants to arrange property inspections and showings.

Not only was I impressed with Laura's knowledge, skill, and tireless effort, but was appreciative of her careful explanations to assure my understanding through each step of the selling process. She would educate me, make recommendations at my request and help me through tough decisions.

Laura is professional, friendly and exceedingly well organized. I had complete confidence in her as my agent. I have only praise for her qualities and skills and highly recommend her!
