Laura was a wonderful asset to us in our home search. She is always available, willing to do just about anything for her clients, and very knowledgeable about the process, when we weren't always sure what to expect. We will miss spending just about every weekend house hunting with her, but we are so glad we found a home! We highly recommend her to anyone looking for land or for a house. ~ Barry and Katie T.

Laura is so great to work with! She is very hands-on, and went above and beyond in selling our home, from helping de-clutter to staging it! Laura is very prompt in responding to emails and text messages and we sent a lot! I will miss going to look for houses with her. ~ Natalie and Jaime P.

Perhaps it was luck or divine intervention that I crossed paths with Laura at an open house. My parents decided to downsize (both in their 90’s) and I was tasked with making it happen. Yikes! Laura arranged for us to see a house before it was officially on the market and advised us on making the right offer in this crazy housing market. She was exactly on target and our offer was accepted over other offers. She was even able to negotiate a lower price after the inspection showed roof problems. My parents are so happy in their new single-story home and I am delighted to have them just two blocks away. Now for the hard part; selling their fifty-year-old home. Laura helped me find a reliable and affordable man to haul away loads of unwanted belongings. She even helped me empty and bag up some of it herself. She found a painter for me and discovered square footage that was left out of the original measurements. She also posted a couple of large items for sale online. Then she sold the house in a few days of listing it for a great price! Laura is remarkable and I was fortunate to have her help with my parents’ transition. ~ Tina B.

Laura is very knowledgeable and passionate about real estate. She went above and beyond the services other realtors offer. She gave us valuable input that got our house sold for more than our asking price in such a short time. Thank you, Laura! ~ Katherine R.

Laura basically rescued our home because it has been sitting on the market for 5 months with another realtor. Laura is very experienced, knows what she is doing, and is extremely responsive. She told us what needed to be done to improve our home before putting it on the market, and was very hands-on in getting it ready to list again. Laura is an excellent negotiator. Our house sold quickly and for top dollar when we hired Laura, even during the Coronavirus chaos. ~ Hanzel M.

Laura is the by far the best Realtor I have ever used. I hired Laura to sell a house I inherited across the country. She managed the entire remodel of the home before putting it on the market. She did everything that I would have had to do myself if I had been there. She sold the house for a record price, despite Covid and ongoing wildfires at the time. She was organized, quick, and has a terrific sense of humor. I enjoyed working with her so much that I am almost sorry the transaction is complete. I can only recommend her in the highest way possible. ~ Polly G.

We worked with Laura DeFilippo when we decided to sell our house in West San Jose. We interviewed a total of 4 agents that had been highly recommended to us – Laura stood out in many ways, including her high level of personal attention, knowledge of the market, and desire to work hard. And that was all evident before she even began. We were debating many strategies - mostly around how much work to do to the house before putting it on the market. We had already purchased a new house so we needed to balance the required effort, the amount of money we should invest in repairs, the timing, and the impact all of this would have on our family (new job and 2 young kids finishing the school year, etc). Laura exceeded all expectations, as she was able to drive the entire preparation process including bringing in contractors who worked quickly and around our constraints. Laura also researched the local schools (including talking to administrators) and all of the recent listings and sales in the area so she could "sell" all aspects of our house. She did a great job staging the house and yard, and marketing the open houses. Laura lined up multiple offers, and we were able to select a very clean, strong offer which was significantly above our expectations and higher than any recent area sale. Oh - in addition to results, she is very fun to work with. I highly recommend her. ~ Tom and Jane M.

Laura DeFilippo sold our home in one day. Laura helped us step-by-step to get our home ready, helped us buy a new home, move, stage our house, sign papers and handle the many other aspects of selling. We appreciated her hands-on involvement, encouragement and friendly demeanor. We will recommend Laura to everyone we know without reservation. ~ Meg and Chuck W.

Laura was amazing. When we first started working with her, we were just starting our search and we were not in any hurry. She patiently took us around to look at many homes and she was never pushy – she wanted to make sure we were absolutely happy with our purchase. With her legal background, Laura helped us navigate through all of the disclosures and other legal documents and I felt in good hands with her expertise. I wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone looking to purchase their dream home. ~ Greg and Reiko K.
