Make Your Dreams a Reality with a Trusted Guide
Real estate is an amazing journey. I believe, like climbing a mountain through unknown and sometimes treacherous terrain, you need an experienced guide that you trust and enjoy being with. I love the business I am in. I am experienced, motivated, a skilled negotiator, and can help you navigate one of the biggest financial decisions of your life with ease - putting you on the mountaintop. Lastly, I'll be here as a real estate resource for you for life.
Trust | Consultation | Experience
Anyone can own their own future in real estate; as a broker, a buyer, a seller, or an investor. You can make a solid investment in your future by making your home work for you as your "retirement account," you can grow your family in your home, or you can invest in rental properties for use as passive income.
I believe it doesn't matter if you're looking for a small condo or your dream home; you deserve expert guidance, education, and consultation - not a sales pitch. You need a trusted Broker with integrity who brings experience and the know-how to navigate tricky transactions and negotiate with skill on your behalf. When you work with me, I become a resource for life. You will be making what is for most one of the biggest financial and emotional decisions of your life - don't leave that to chance or a discount broker with less experience & education, less time for you, and dozens of other transactions they are simply processing through. I am here as your trusted guide and I look forward to working with you.
Are we a good fit?

This review will be the highest I can give due to Lara's consummate professionalism and expertise. We were buying from out of state which meant Lara had to go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable with a purchase that often seemed confusing due to our lack of understanding of West Coast Real Estate Culture. Indeed, we found there is a lot more trust involved in West Coast home and mortgage purchasing, so we needed someone like Lara (honest, clear, articulate and specific with information)...see more
As first-time homebuyers, we loved working with Lara! She is so knowledgeable and we felt so confident in her guidance throughout the whole process. She was very responsive and a fierce negotiator. Would absolutely recommend her and work with her again.
We could not have asked for a better experience as first home buyers. Maybe we are just lucky (however, I know if it wasn't for Lara we wouldn't have had this luck), but one week we got pre-approved and the very next week our offer won the bid on the first home we submitted to. If it wasn't for Lara's advice on an offer price and ability to successfully write up an offer and schedule a needed inspection in a 2 day time period, we would have missed out on our dream home. On top of this, the entir...see more
I don't even know where to begin this review... Lara was amazing and I can't recommend her highly enough. My purchase was complicated because I live in South Carolina... and during these COVID times, I couldn't be there in person. Let me start at the beginning... I was just about to close on the sale of the dream home my husband and I had built 6 years ago (I was selling because he passed away) when our son who lives in Seattle let me know that the condo unit under his was available and would...see more
As first-time home buyers, my wife and I relied heavily on Lara's expertise and experience to navigate the multiple steps to buying our home. We began the process feeling fairly intimidated, but Lara quickly put us at ease with her knowledge of the region and quick responses to even the smallest of questions. Once we were inside a potential home, she continued to impress us with her detailed information about the property we were viewing and suggestions about ways we could change/update it to fi...see more
We were recommended Lara when we were buying a house. She found something that fix us perfectly. When another chapter in our life started and needed to sell, she was very helpful in getting the house ready for top dollar.
My husband and I worked with Lara for a second time a few months to sell our home and purchase another, all in the Seattle area--three transactions with her, to-date. We knew we'd need to rely heavily on our agent's experience, instincts, and relationships to sell and buy in the midst of Seattle's crazy real estate climate, so it was a no-brainer to call Lara again. We've never felt like we've gotten too little for a sale or paid too much (relatively speaking, depending on current climate) for a...see more
I would highly recommend working with Lara on your buying or selling needs. We were first-time home buyers, and her knowledge of the market was invaluable. Lara immediately picked up on our needs and non-negotiable items, and showed us amazing finds that fit our wish-list. With Lara's guidance, we were able to close on the first home that we put in offer in on which was incredible. I will continue to recommend Lara to my friends and colleagues who are looking to buy or sell in the Seattle area.
A big thank you to Lara who guided us through the selling of a home that was an estate sale.
She outlined the sale process so we would understand what the next steps were before they even occurred which was extremely helpful.
Lara staged the home beautifully and the photographer did a wonderful job capturing all the many details she included in the furnishings.
She was responsive to our emails and phone calls as questions kept popping up.
If you want an agent that is truly knowledgeable and a p...see more
Lara's amazing! She helped us get into a home that is perfect for us. If you're looking for someone super sweet to work with who can help you negotiate everything, Lara is your gal!
Lara was, without exception, the perfect real estate agent. She was always quick to respond to emails, calls, and texts. Her knowledge of Seattle was impressive, and her demeanor is warm, positive, and friendly while still being 100% capable of navigating her line of work. Buying property is not a relaxing process, but with Lara, it was as painless as possible. I would recommend her to ANYONE. Thank you again, Lara, for all of your hard work and attentiveness that made us feel like VIP clients.
Lara was extremely helpful in selling my house during the most unusual of times possible: a global pandemic, the failure of the W Seattle bridge, and the BLM protests all impacting people’s decisions. Lara more than stepped up at every stage to make certain we prepped the house to maximize price, priced it right in this volatile market to actually sell, and placed the house at the best perceived time to get the right exposure. Lara additionally went out of her way to personally assist includin...see more
Lara was awesome to work with. She was incredibly organized, friendly, and professional. She knew the area really well and helped us to find a great home.
Lara was amazing to work with! She kept us informed and prepared for each step of the home buying process. As first time homebuyers, we really appreciated the level of detail she provided so we were fully informed on each decision we made. She was always available and incredibly patient and thoughtful each time we had a question about process or terminology. Her expertise and passion for her job shined through and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
I found Laura to be extremely knowledgeable and organized. Her attention to detail was outstanding. She showed us three homes before the one we ended up purchasing, and in each case, she was responsive, punctual, and had expert knowledge of the real estate process and the market. Most wonderfully, she was extremely patient and gracious at all times, even when we, as potential buyers, equivocated and second-guessed ourselves as to our goals and capabilities.
We couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated and supportive agent as we searched for our forever home. Lara spent countless hours showing us houses all over Seattle, always reassuring us that a house is always worth a look. Lara spends time with her clients are truly cares about finding the right home. Thank you Lara!
Where to begin. Lara was the most impressive real estate agent/broker that i have worked with. Selling our family home was emotional and Lara was very sensitive to that and how my brother and i were feeling almost on a day to day basis. Her recommendations on pricing, the area and what needed to be completed prior to listing were right on. I had many questions on how the process would work and Lara would respond to me as many times as i needed to be clear about the process. We needed some assist...see more
As first homebuyers unfamiliar with the crazy Seattle market, we probably could not have successfully purchased a property in an area we love without Lara’s guidance. She was extremely patient, educational and responsive throughout the whole process, walking us through the pros and cons of each home we viewed (and we viewed a lot!), and was never once pushy. She genuinely wanted us to find a home we loved at a price point we were comfortable with. We will be recommending Lara to all our friend...see more
