"People like Laura. People trust Laura. In this competitive market, that can be all the difference between your offer getting accepted or passed over. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
“Laura Pulled Off A Miracle For Us.”
Laura pulled off a miracle for us. She helped us buy a newly renovated home for the lowest price per square foot in our area while, at the same time, she sold ours (before it even officially went on the market) for the highest!
She is extremely knowledgeable, works tirelessly and, most importantly, cares deeply about you/your needs. This was the third home I've purchased in my life - and never had I sold a home simultaneously. Laura blows every other realtor away. Not only did she make a potentially grueling and flat out impossible situation happen for us, she did it in a smooth and efficient way for all parties involved.
On a last note, I am positive the main reason we got the house we are now in is because of the relationship she developed with the selling realtor. People like Laura. People trust Laura. In this competitive market, that can be all the difference between your offer getting accepted or passed over. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

“She Took All The Stress Away”
I can not say enough about Laura and her passion to help others find what they are looking for. Laura has helped me with my three homes now, and each time she goes above and beyond to make sure that I am happy.
Laura really takes pride in what she does and it shows in her work. I have always had total confidence in her and her selections on what she believes are the right fit. Laura would send me new listings constantly to ensure I did not miss out on anything. She will view the home and check out every little detail before she even suggests that I go with her to look at it. Not only did she help me find the house but guided me on what to offer and by doing this I saved a ton of money and time listening to her.
She took all of the stress away in finding a new place and she still constantly helps me if I have any home issues.

“We absolutely recommend Laura”
I am writing to give Laura Kellam my highest recommendation. Laura is an awesome realtor who knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with her clients. She is professional, knowledgable, great with counsel and an amazing negotiator. She clearly takes pride in delighting her clients. In our particular case as a buyer of a home, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Laura was a great help. It was so nice to be able to relax and know that such a great realtor was working so hard on our behalf. We absolutely recommend Laura and we love our new home!
— Daniel & Grace
Laura Kellam reached out to me when she saw something I posted online about my frustrations at finding a good house in Marina Del Rey. That alone was an unexpected pleasure. What came next was meeting Laura and having her take us to several amazing properties (in the rain) and helping us find just the right place.
She was an invaluable resource. And when we had some difficulties with the listing agent, Laura was always able to smooth everything over. I am so incredibly grateful to Laura for her time, patience, and personal touch. She’s a winner!

"After we found our dream home (which thanks to her tenacity and her affiliation with her reputable firm) she was able to make sure that we had the opportunity to not only have our offer reviewed but we were able to get countered, which is difficult in this time."
“Extensive Knowledge of LA Neighborhoods.”
My family and I couldn’t praise Laura enough. She secured the perfect rental for us whilst we were still living in the UK, a process which proved tricky, but her expertise and persistence paid off.
After we settled, we started to look for a house to purchase. Laura’s extensive knowledge of LA’s various neighborhoods meant we could explore many options and we always enjoyed our days out with her, learning all the insider info, pros and cons to each district.
We soon found a house that had been on the market perhaps two days and it was a great find, and it already had two offers in on it. She advised us on how to put in an offer the buyer couldn’t refuse. They accepted and even cancelled an open house, which eliminated the possibility of an accelerated bidding war and price increase situation.
Laura’s tenacity, likeability and knowledge really made the difference to us – we couldn’t recommend her more. The only draw back, now that we are settled in our amazing new home, is that we miss house hunting with our new friend!” — Walter & Jo & Leander

“Ability to make things happen.”
I was impressed by Laura’s ability to make things happen. She was very quick to draw up an offer ( literally overnight) on the house that already had an offer on it. Even though I came in later, she was able to position me as a preferred buyer. I had very little flexibility at work to take care of all the transaction business. Laura had been extremely helpful in assisting me finalized the transaction.
My feeling of working with Laura was that I felt she was on my team and was looking out for me and had my best interest at heart. It was not easy for a single female to go into this current competitive housing market. For the past year, I had my fair share of working with realtors that do not take the time nor the patience to get to really know what I want. Many are there to make a quick sale. With Laura, she understood that it will be a huge financial investment for most of us and respected that we need to feel completely comfortable with what we are getting into.
I am grateful that she came my way through a friend’s recommendation and I would highly recommend her to those who had not have much success with other realtors. There was so much more she had done for me post closing of escrow which I am grateful for.

"Laura was creative and imaginative. She didn’t just show us places we thought we would like. She showed us places we wouldn’t have looked at in order to give us more options that opened our eyes to more possibilities."
“She's the one”
Laura immediately gave us such a kind, genuine, and honest impression that I told my husband as soon as we were alone, “She’s the one.” Laura was so knowledgeable about the areas we were focusing our search on, and her ability to understand and connect with us was so real that we knew working together would be easy. Once we started house hunting together, we were so happy to find that Laura had more things up her sleeve that would continue impressing us throughout our search.
-Laura did extra background research for us based on her understanding of our needs, wants, and goals. We saved a lot of time crossing off homes on our “let’s check them out” list because Laura found out things about the houses including: it was too close to the industrial part of town, or it’s near a sewer line, or the oil refinery is right behind it, or the neighborhood didn’t match our lifestyle, etc.
-Laura was very patient with us. I’m sure there were times she may have wanted to pull out her hair because of our changing wish list or the rejected offers, but she was always supportive and understanding. She had a positive can-do attitude that always kept our spirits up especially when time was really putting the pressure on.
-Laura worked tirelessly. She would be sending me emails with new listings constantly so that we wouldn’t miss out on anything. Some days we stayed out past 8pm looking at homes in order to fit as many locations as possible because of our time crunch. She will do whatever it takes without hesitation.
-Laura was creative and imaginative. She didn’t just show us places we thought we would like. She showed us places we wouldn’t have looked at in order to give us more options that opened our eyes to more possibilities. Thank goodness, because we found our new home in a location we had originally thought would be crossed off our list!
Working with Laura has been such a blessing. We are so happy to have met her and so lucky to become friends.

“A Toast To Laura Kellam”
We met Laura at an open house that she was holding for another client. It was one of many that day and the process was so tiresome. Then we met Laura. She was so kind, energetic, warm, motivated, and most of all, intelligent! Unlike any other open house, she had all the information on the neighborhood, the home, area comps, etc. and I remember telling my husband how she was the type of agent I’d want selling my house!
She followed up with us a few days later and offered to sit with us to talk about what we were looking for. And we had no idea! We were looking for “that house,” but hadn’t thought about the important factors of an area that Laura brought up with us when talking and refining a particular area. We were open to different styles, different neighborhoods, etc. – but it just had to be the perfect house. Laura was tireless in meeting us at various homes, going out on her own any time she thought one might be meet our specification. She’d send us information on each home, the neighborhoods, and incredibly useful details like the vibe of the neighborhood, how much traffic passed through, school districts, if it was a nice walking area in the evening, etc. She was so patient and never once got frustrated with our indecision (at least not that she showed!). A few times we were so swept up in the momentum of things we thought we wanted to make offers on homes which she actually talked us out of! – which was always in our best interest and also meant her not getting a commission.
Needless to say after we found our dream home (which thanks to her tenacity and her affiliation with her reputable firm she was able to make sure that we had the opportunity to not only have our offer reviewed but we were able to get countered, which is difficult in this time), We of course had her sell our house! Within 5 days of listing, Laura secured us 12 offers – all over asking. The photos she took of our home were stunning and she added beautiful personal touches in showing the home to get it sold. My husband and I both work crazy hours and she made it so easy for us – taking care of everything and even finding us someone to do some remodeling on our new home. The day we first walked into our new home and we saw a bottle of champagne from Laura both my husband and I agreed that it was us that should be toasting her

"A friend of mine recommended Laura Kellam when I was selling a spec home that my husband and had designed and built. When I met her, I told her I planned on marketing it myself, and holding open houses etc. How hard could it be, right? Well, I was in over my head and Laura came to my rescue and helped me tremendously."
"Laura came to my rescue"
A friend of mine recommended Laura Kellam when I was selling a spec home that my husband and had designed and built. When I met her, I told her I planned on marketing it myself, and holding open houses etc. How hard could it be, right? Well, I was in over my head and Laura came to my rescue and helped me tremendously, even though she did not have the listing. She scheduled 6 open houses in a 10 day period, she hosted the open houses, set up all the signs in the neighborhood and created fantastic marketing material, shared all of her knowledge about area pricing and neighborhood activity with attendees, all of this with no guarantee that she would find a buyer and get paid for her time. But she did find a buyer, a buyer who only learned about the property because of her open houses! and marketing; and the sale went smoothly. She made sure all the required documentation was done in a timely manner and kept us informed at every turn during escrow. She’s a hard worker and very dedicated to her trade. And she was a delight to work with as well.”

"Laura is an expert in her field"
Laura Kellam was our realtor when I sold my mom’s house last year – the house I grew up in over 60 years ago. It was a very emotional thing for me to do. Laura really helped me deal with not only all the paperwork that’s involved with the selling of a home, but with the emotional aspects of it as well. She did not shame me about it or dismiss my feelings. We took it slow and she gave me the time I needed to be able to let it go. She is an expert in her field and interfaces well with both seller and buyer. I totally trusted that she got us the best price we could for my mom’s house. She handled all the details, including overseeing all the inspections, permits, assessments etc. I could tell the vendors enjoy working with her because she knows her stuff! She was able to save us a lot of money by working with some of the vendors that she’s used before and she doesn’t let the wool get pulled over her eyes! She was also a big help inhelping us find some loan options. I highly recommend her as a realtor and can’t sing her praises enough. She took something that was overwhelming to me and made it simple, effective, and honorable.
