Providing you with personalized care is part of my service commitment and is at the core of my business success. My goal is to find you a home that you love and can envision you and your family enjoying day after day. I take the time to understand what matters most to you and match properties to your unique needs. I am transparent with you and communicate with you every step of the way. Buying a property is an exciting, emotional and often stressful process and it’s my job to help you feel confident in your decisions, and make it an enjoyable experience. I feel personal accomplishment and joy in helping you find the home that you love. I never rush you through the process and pride myself on my integrity, market knowledge and negotiation expertise. My business is almost completely built on referrals, you are not a transaction to me, it’s about getting to know you and establishing a long-term relationship.
I understand buying a home is a huge emotional and financial decision. This is the place you and your family will spend the majority of your time and build life long memories. I am grateful to share in this major life change with you.
I have been working in sales for over twenty years, the past ten years in real estate. I leverage this breadth of experience during offer negotiations to make sure we are in the best position possible to achieve the outcome we are seeking. Effective negotiation on your behalf can mean the difference of thousands of dollars in your pocket. In today’s competitive market, it also means knowing what is needed to win the property while not paying more then you need to.
I have a large network of specialists to assist you in the many area’s related to buying a home. I can refer you to quality home inspectors, mortgage brokers, appraisers, lawyers, cleaning services, contractors and more. In addition, I maintain outstanding relationships with hundreds of local real estate agents and when you are buying a property, it helps to have an agent with a good professional rapport. I am often invited to preview properties that are off-market or not listed to the general public which can give my clients an early opportunity to bid on a property.
I have in-depth knowledge in the neighbourhoods that I specialize in and have access to market reports and a team of staff focused on Toronto market statistics. By keeping abreast of all market changes, I can provide you with current trends and insights and respond quickly to new properties coming on the market.
The Toronto real estate market is highly competitive with many homes selling in multiple offers. Its imperative that you understand the market value of a property, regardless of the listing price or the price the sellers hopes to attain. I conduct a comprehensive pricing analysis to help you understand the value of each individual property. I will walk you through the process and make sure you feel confident and secure in your investment decision. I value your investment like it’s my own and use my knowledge of market conditions to ensure educated and informed decisions are made.
“We were delighted at the personal attention and quick response time we received while working with Laura on the sale of our home and in buying our new house. Laura made us feel like we were her number one priority and was highly responsive to our questions and needs. She really cares about her clients. We have already referred her to our daughter who just bought her first condo. Laura is like family now.”

“Thank you so much for all that you did for me during the process of selling my home. Your ideas for sprucing my place up were amazing! I was very nervous and unsure about the entire selling process and I always felt that you had my best interests in hand and you kept me informed each step of the way. Thanks again for the fantastic job, I really appreciate all of your patience and hard work.”
“Laura, we just wanted to thank you for helping us seamlessly buy our new house and sell our condo. You did a thorough job of addressing all of our concerns along with pointing out all of the items that we needed to be mindful of during the entire process. You coordinated everything perfectly and we’re thrilled. We loved your approach to working with us, your open and honest style, you did an incredible job marketing our property and we couldn’t have asked for a smoother process – really you did a great job. Take care and we look forward to seeing you at our housewarming!”

“I am so happy with my new home! Thanks so much for walking me through the buying process and being so attentive to all of my needs. I was very picky and specific in what I wanted in a home and you did an exceptional job pinpointing neighbourhoods and sorting through all of the differences in each property with me. I changed my requirements several times and you were always patient and accommodating. I would recommend you to anybody who is buying or selling and wants a true professional representing them. Thanks again for everything you’ve done for me.”
“Laura did outstanding work helping us sell our house at over-asking, and helping us buy our dream property at a great price. She is thoroughly professional, trustworthy, reliable, and knowledgeable. On the sell side, Laura provided thorough research and analysis to determine the appropriate listing price, marketed our house beautifully, and professionally navigated us through the multiple offers that followed. On the buy side, she helped us make tough decisions about counter-offering on the home we had our hearts set on, and ultimately helped us purchase it for the right price. In addition to providing top-tier, attentive service, she was also an absolute pleasure to work with!”

“What a pleasure it was working with Laura! She was enormously helpful in assisting and guiding me through the complex—and sometimes stressful—process of selling my suburban home, downsizing, and finding a suitable condo in a high-demand area in midtown Toronto. After I decided to sell my house before buying a condo, she made sure that the sales agreement included a provision for a relatively long closing date in order to give me sufficient time to downsize and find a new home. She also implemented an effective marketing strategy that resulted in multiple offers and a selling price well above the list price. My search for a condo had begun before the house sale and continued for some time afterward. Laura kept me fully informed as condos that might interest me came on the market, responded promptly to my requests for viewings, and was always willing to provide information and advice, all with a genuine desire to help me find what I wanted. The happy result is that I am now living in a condo which I love in an excellent location in midtown Toronto.”
