Don't look elsewhere. Take my referral right here and now and call her. She is 100% on your side. Thanks again Laura!

Laura helped me sell a home and would totally use her again. I highly recommend her. She's personable and knows her stuff. I would have done six stars if it were an option.

My good luck - out of the blue - I happened onto Laura Basset. My need was not to sell nor buy at the time, but to find an appraiser for my mid-century modern home that was out of her area. Her ready response to help really impressed me, and her experience in all areas of real estate became evident as we moved on; her professionalism continued into following up to make sure that I was pleased. Working with Laura is a real pleasure that you wouldn't want to miss. So, if you are looking for both competence AND concern, look no further.

Can't speak highly enough about Laura Basset. If you are looking for a professional, knowledgeable, and savvy broker, look no further! Laura is a pleasure to work with. She is a great listener, which is important to me. She always goes the "extra mile" for her clients, and it is so appreciated. When I needed design advice, I trusted her insight, as she is an artist and really has a great grasp of different styles and how to work with them. She was able to provide me with extraordinary referrals, for so many different things, I have lost count. She has lots of experience with construction projects and can give advice you can trust should you find a home with her that needs some extra work. She is super friendly, really easy to talk to, and will represent you with the best work ethics, something I don't see often in the real estate industry. I don't typically write reviews, but in this case, I couldn't resist. CALL LAURA!! You will be SO HAPPY you did!!! She is the BEST!!!

Laura is a dear. She is the most thoughtful and diligent realtor we have ever worked with. She helped us buy our new home and it was a real process... but Laura handled it with poise. She was very thorough and prepared. We had a short inspection window and she had everything scheduled and planned well in advance so that we had the most time to really inspect our potential new home. She has great contacts for inspections and is very good at presenting clear reports and negotiating and organizing for any repairs. She really fought hard for us and was always present and available. She is a buyer’s dream realtor. She even gave us lovely housewarming gifts when everything was signed and done!

I met Laura when selling my home earlier this year. Curiously, she was the buyers' agent, not mine; yet I came to know her much better than my own realtor. Having been a realtor myself some years ago, I was impressed by Laura's professionalism, knowledge of the market and of the various issues that often arise during a real estate transaction, and most particularly her genuine care for her clients.
Ours was a short 30-day escrow and we were able to meet that deadline thanks to her being right on top of every potential problem before it even arose. I was satisfied with my agent, but for my next transaction I would not hesitate to hire Laura.

Having referred a property to Laura, and spoken to her many times, I can state that her enthusiasm for her work--and the care she provides her clients--is really inspiring. She is a knowledgeable achiever who is truly out to please, and this is evident in everything she does. It is clear that she measures her success by her clients' satisfaction.

Laura Basset deserves all the praise that this review provides and more. Laura is a hard worker, amenable, smart, professional, classy, delightful… the list goes on! Looking for a home in Los Angeles is no easy feat, but with Laura on our side, our home search was the most steadfast and pleasant experience any first-time buyers could have asked for! You will feel confident with Laura on your team as you search for your place to call home. We looked in 2020 when the competition for home purchases was exceedingly high. Yet with all of that intensity in the air, I must say, searching for a home with Laura as our confidant was a delightful experience. Laura is steadfast, keen, and a true magician! She was intent on listening to our needs, concerns, and desires throughout the entire process. New homes that fit our criteria were sent to us regularly and we were in constant contact. When we were interested in a property Laura saw to it that we visited the home as soon as possible and, when we met, all the information we needed was placed in our hands. She was in contact with the listing agent and always reached out to us to give us updates on the property. Laura was always prepared, providing additional information we asked for which made the process so comforting, as we knew that she was always on the case! While visiting properties, Laura seemed to know every listing agent we met and had a positive interface with every one of her peers. Her knowledge of home buying was extraordinarily helpful. One of the most beneficial elements of working with Laura includes her character, which simply cannot be replicated. She is astoundingly professional, patient, devoted, and fun! She remained equanimous as my husband and I made tough calls. Laura's ability to be present with us, provide information, and support our journey is an experience that we are forever grateful we had. Laura, we are so grateful for your vivacity, leadership, and grace. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being with us every step of the way!"
