Testimonials

Seller

Laura Miller worked with us to make the sale of our house as smooth and painless as possible.

We met with Laura months several months before the house was put on the market, and she helped us select contractors--painters, stagers, window cleaners, de-clutterers-- to get the house ready to show. We followed her suggestions. She provided pricing information and updated it as the market changed. We feel that because of her efforts the house sold above the asking price.

Laura worked hard and we recommend her highly.

My wife and I really lucked out finding Laura. She's smart, patient and honest and extremely knowledgeable in all areas related to houses. She's also been great setting us up with reliable contractors and electricians to do work at our house. I hope to remain in touch with her and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house.

Glenn Roth - July 19, 2015

Buyer

I am giving Laura all 5 stars because she is awesome. She is professional, knowledgeable, sharp and patient. She gave us her objective opinions, not things we want to hear but untrue. We have seen many homes and made offers on several. We even backed out of a house that we had done the inspection. We never sensed any impatience from Laura. We will highly recommend Laura to anyone who is considering buying or selling a home in Scarsdale area. You will enjoy working with her.

Ping Zhou - August 21, 2015

Buyer

Laura has a wealth of information about the Scarsdale area. Not only is she knowledgeable and professional, but she is also just a warm, thoughtful person who was a pleasure to work with. We connected with her through Suburban Jungle. She was never pushy, always listened to our feedback and helped us make a well informed purchase that we are more than happy about. Would highly recommend her!

Laura has been very helpful in selling our house. She is hard working and very responsive to any email or text. We were busy working and Laura helped us take care of many things when we couldn't be at our house. She is a trustworthy realtor and we would definitely use her for our future real estate needs in Westchester.

Seller

Recently Laura helped sell my home and achieved a bid that exceeded our expectations, She was focused on our problems and was extremely hardworking and knowledgeable about local rules. At the same time Laura was sensitive to our needs because we are elderly, and she eased us through some difficult times. She continued to be helpful even after the closing and we are grateful to her. We recommend her highly as an efficient broker and as a warm person with integrity.

Seller

Laura is exceptional at what she does. She pays huge attention to detail, and worked tremendously hard to get my house sold. I had moved out of state and Laura was tireless through over 40 showings going to turn the lights on and off for me! Laura is very knowledgeable about the Westchester market and knew what it would take to get my house sold. Laura is also good at negotiating and working through problems that crop up when selling a house. I highly recommend Laura.

Laura is excellent to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help us sell our home. I recommend her highly! Laura was very professional and knowledgable about the real estate market. She covered all areas in the selling of our home and how to market it. We were very happy to have chosen her as our agent.

Buyer

We met Laura a year ago and just purchased our first home through her in Scarsdale. Laura was outstanding during the entire process (search, purchase, inspections, closing, renovations, and transition) for many reasons. First and foremost, Laura is a pleasure to work with and really took the time to understand what we wanted. We always felt she was genuinely looking out for our best interests at every stage of the process.  Laura has a wealth of knowledge and experience, which greatly simplifies the process. In particular, her guidance throughout the search process was extremely valuable to help us find the right home and balance the appropriate tradeoffs (cost, location, old versus new etc.).  After closing our home, Laura has referred us to resources including some great contractors/vendors (floor, painters, etc.) to help us with renovations and transition to home ownership. Laura is by far the best real estate agent we have ever met. We would highly recommend her!! (Anita and Ravi Srinivasan, 42 Sage Terrace, Scarsdale)

Buyer

Laura is truly one of a kind. She helped us through the process of purchasing our first home. Our hunt for the perfect home took over a year. Laura went above and beyond. She is the perfect mix of patience and persistence. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. In fact I did...to my parents!

Janice Montefiore - June 12, 2016

Buyer

Laura is fantastic. She was highly professional, responsive (at all hours, no matter the question) and clearly cared about our interests through the entire home buying process. she helped educate us on the different neighborhoods in Scarsdale, was patient as we viewed (and re-viewed) several homes, had great contacts with architects/contractors when we needed advice about potential renovations, and ultimately was a strong advocate/advisor as we negotiated with the seller. Would highly recommend. 

Adam and Mandy Pollitzer - June 17, 2016

Buyer

Laura was one of the best parts of moving to Scarsdale. A consummate professional who put her clients best interest first. Always responsive, resourceful, knowledgeable, and reliable. 100% would recommend Laura and have her represent us again.

Dalia Lenskis and Shauren Kristian - June 17, 2016

Buyer

Laura is very professional, responsible and helpful. I am so glad we had her as our broker. Buying a house is exciting but also stressful, Laura made the process much easier for us. Besides being so efficient and professional, I feel that Laura truly wants her clients to be happy with their own choice and that is different from a lot of brokers in the market. Both my husband and I had been living in apartments and had no experience in houses. First, Laura tries to understand our needs and showed us a broad range of houses in our price range and then we were able to narrow down based on our preferences of styles (colonial, split etc), locations (close to public transportation) and other criteria. Laura is very flexible in scheduling appointments. We are a working couple with young children and we can only see houses on weekends. She always found a spot for us on weekends which worked for us quite well. Normally, she would go to the houses which I was interested in before she had showed us. For example, there was a house which looked very attractive online, however, a high voltage power line went through the back yard. We gave it up after she told us that. This prevented a lot of unnecessary trips. (I think she literally goes to all open houses in the neighborhood.) It is a very competitive bidding environment in Scarsdale neighborhood. Laura gave us comparables and valuable advice (since she has been in the neighbor for a long time, she knows brokers and always get us valuable information.) At the same time, she always respected our decision and was never pushy. During the closing period, she recommended a good lawyer and inspector. She followed up on our questions with the other agent and seller in a timely fashion. After closing, she sent us a bag of goodies and invited us to social events in the neighborhood. It was a pleasant experience working with her!

Buyer

We love Laura - she is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is one of the most knowledgeable professionals in her field. She is extremely smart, practical, and personable.  Laura has her finger firmly planted on the pulse of local real estate, so she provided us with the context within which we could make our (ultimately accepted) bids.  She also provided us with relevant market value advice from creating our sales listing to advising us on offer acceptance strategy to help us sell our house.  Laura is an expert relationship builder who has earned the respect of other brokers, attorneys, mortgage brokers, movers, contractors, architects, and handi-people. She's truly a wealth of knowledge and happy to make connections. We highly recommend Laura for anyone moving to the area.

Marco and McLean Pena - January 30, 2017

Buyer

Laura’s assistance and support in helping to secure our new home was outstanding.  Moving from the West Coast to New York limited our amount of time "on the ground" to view homes.  Truth be known, we completed our purchase in 24 hours. 

Sandy and Paul Schiffman - January 30, 2017

Buyer

Laura is an incredible agent.  She was a tremendous help during our two-year home search in Scarsdale and Edgemont.  She was always friendly, responsive and flexible.  Despite the long search (and a few losing bids), she never pressured us or lost patience.  We are very grateful for her help and very excited about our new home.

Paul and Ilana Fenyves - January 30, 2017

Buyer

We first met Laura at an open house. We then contacted her to show us more listings. She was always very accommodating with setting up showings to work with our schedule. She quickly figured out what we were looking for in a house and didn't try to convince us to look at houses above our price range. She was very responsive to emails and text messages and just a lovely and pleasant person to work with. She has a good sense of humor and is extremely knowledgeable about Scarsdale. Even after we moved into our new home, Laura has been a great source of recommendations from appliance repair companies, landscapers, plumbers and more. She even organized a coffee date for me and some other mothers who had recently moved to Scarsdale. We would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the area.

Wendy and Dana Stags - January 30, 2017

Seller

Laura was first rate in every respect, both in pricing and selling our house in Edgemont and helping us find a town home. She did an in depth analysis of the market and convened a brokers review which priced the house perfectly. She counseled us on handling offers and negotiated with two offers for several hours on a Sunday evening. She really knows the market and always is available.

Ira and Debbie Sacks - January 30, 2017

Seller

We had a lovely house in a challenging location .... Laura managed the entire process for us (staging, renovation/touch ups, etc) and we had our buyer locked down within a month. She gave us great advice on pricing, was masterful in the negotiations, and ALWAYS made us feel she was entirely in our corner. We have sold several houses in the past 15 years. This was unequivocally the best experience we have ever had. Laura is tops. 

Michaeline and Doug Curtis - January 30, 2017

Seller

We had an excellent experience. We contacted Laura several months ahead of when we anticipated selling. She gave us good advice in the pre-sale process such as having outdoor photos taken while our grass and trees were green even though we wouldn't be ready to offer the house for sale until the winter. She suggested we get a professional "pre-inspection" and fixing any issues found. In addition to suggesting how to make the interior of our home have universal appeal, Laura recommended strong trade partners for staging who showed us how to use our own possessions to best effect and she even loaned us a few extra. The brochure photos and descriptions that Laura prepared generated attendance by nearly 60 agents, numerous showings right away and a quick sale! We felt that the pre inspection and making our house more kid-friendly improved the appeal of our house. Laura's expertise, experience and support were invaluable in the negotiation and closing process.  We received our asking price.

Simeon Schwartz and Ellen Greenbaum - January 30, 2017

Seller

We had a complicated situation and Laura handled everything professionally, thoughtfully, and accurately.  She demonstrated superior skills in the entire process of listing and selling my home. It was a delightful experience because of her. She is a rock star in my eyes!!!
