Frequently Asked Questions

"Frequently Asked Questions from my past and current clients".

Yes.  Without Question.

I realize this one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents.  I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible….ok maybe not at 2am…sorry 🙂

Depends on who you ask!  If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they’ll probably say “yes”.  A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand.  Those are the two extremes, and most people’s opinion falls somewhere in the middle.

Here’s what I can tell you:  I’m honest and candid.  I take pride in being approachable and friendly.  And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place.  Loyalty to family, clients and friends is one of my core values.  Want to really find out if I’m a jerk?  Mess with one of those people.

Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing.

These are “strong suits” of mine:

  • Marketing online and off-line (Worked in the Website industry for 12 years)
  • Working with homes that expired by another agent
  • 1st home buyers (I love educating new homeowners)
  • Investors – Helping find homes to flip or keep as investments
  • Relocation Sellers/Buyers – Keeping multiple escrows in line to close so everyone is happy
  • Referrals – Keeping everyone in the loop at all times
  • Luxury Real Estate – Helping to sell or location a Luxury Home here in the Desert
  • REO -Short Sales – Experience with listing and selling Foreclosure homes
  • HUD Homes – Understanding their process to help my buyers close escrow

If your goal or situation isn’t represented on that list, don’t worry.  Contact me anyway.  If I can’t help, I can get you referred to another great agent who can.


On a personal level, I’m pretty good at baking (I make a mean Cheesecake), and I love to CrossFit (currently hold a Level-One Certificate), hike, bike, camping.  Never learned to Ski, but love going to the snow.

On a professional, here are a few skill-sets that I’ve development over the years:

  • Listening – Unfortunately, it’s a lost art these days
  • Communication – You will never ask “where’s my agent”
  • Goals – I always keep my client’s goals 1st, not mine, not the other agent.
  • Dedication – Once you are a client, you are a client for life for me!

My clients are better suited to anwser this for you.  Here’s what some of them have said!

“Laura truly is a very professional real estate agent and my 5 star recommendation is most honest and sincere. With her professionalism she definitely looks out for you, pays close attention to what type of house you are looking for. In our case she also came through for us to receive a generous assistance from Homes for Heroes, a Veteran’s program, of which Laura is a member. Laura did all the paper work for us to receive this much welcomed money to help with expenses that come with buying a house. We can definitely say Thank You Laura and would highly recommend Laura – Rose Parker”
