Laura consistently exceeded our expectations throughout our home buying process. In addition to being proactive, responsive, and professional, Laura was truly committed to understanding our needs and wants in a home, and she went above and beyond in finding and negotiating a perfect fit. We simply could not have done this without Laura, and we cannot recommend her highly enough!

-Casey & Daniel

We can’t thank Laura enough for helping us to sell our first home.  We expected the process to be invasive and stressful, but Laura made it easy by holding our hands through every step of the process.  She made it easy to sift through the offers, accept the one with the best terms and then went over and above by answering all of our emails, phone calls and texts no matter what time it was.  Furthermore, she attended all inspections, which helped calm our nerves.  I can’t recommend Laura enough – she is honest, hard working, knowledgeable and goes above and beyond the normal scope of work. 

-Nicholas and Mary

Laura assisted us with purchasing our first home. She was very patient with us and we felt that she really had our best interests in mind when negotiating things with the seller. She is very responsive to texts and emails and will look into whatever questions you may have. She was very pleasant to work with and made our home-buying experience as smooth as possible.

-Jackie & Tom

Laura exceeded our demanding expectations and helped us find a gorgeous property in a community where we feel at home.  We recommend her without reservation.  It must also be mentioned — Laura handled our real estate search professionally, responsively, and effectively, while in her third trimester, delivering her baby the week we closed.Laura is professional, effective, and a pleasure to work with.  She is smart, knowledgeable, and a good negotiator.

-Cindy & Jay

Within a few weeks, Laura got us the exact property we were looking for and was extremely helpful with the entire process. Anytime we needed to reach her she was available and would go to extremes to get us what we wanted.

-Reza & Shabnam

Thank you so much for marketing, processing and renting our condo in Pasadena. Your professionalism, knowledge and service was outstanding and a class act! You have our long term loyalty.

-Bob & Marilyn

We highly recommend Laura Nunnelly. She went above and beyond her scope as a realtor. She’s incredibly responsive with her communication, and made time to show us homes as soon as possible. Laura is trustworthy, understanding, and hardworking. She’s a Los Angeles native and very knowledgeable of the areas she services. To top it all off, she’s personable and listens to her clients wants and needs. We will definitely be using Laura again for all of our future home buying and selling needs.

-Maddy & Andrew

Laura was fantastic. We were looking for a rental with pretty specific requirements and she guided us through the process. We found the perfect home with Laura’s help and couldn’t imagine going through the logistics and execution of the lease agreement without her. She genuinely wanted the best for us and was an advocate in every sense of the word. When it comes time to purchase a home we will definitely utilize Laura’s services again

-Lauren & Charles

Laura did an excellent job of showing, leasing, completing paperwork, and went above and beyond at every step of the process. This included assisting with letting movers in when they arrived early. Laura made the process easy, and I would highly recommend working with her!
