It was such a pleasure working with Laura, who helped us purchase a home. She is a local mom in Scarsdale, so was incredibly knowledgeable about schools, activities for kids, and basically anything child related. she was great in helping us see the pros and cons of each house we looked at, and not pressuring us to move forward with something we weren’t sure about. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Scarsdale area.

When we first met with Laura we were deciding on which town we wanted to move to and her tour helped us feel confident that Scarsdale would be the perfect fit for our family. She was extremely patient with us during the year it took to find our home. We were looking for our ‘forever home’ that could be renovated to make our own and Laura was able to help us find the hidden potential and offer advice for updates. She was able to negotiate a great price and made sure we received a large credit for issues that came up during our inspection. Laura has been such a great resource even after we closed on our home – offering to introduce us to young families and even helping us find a contractor. We couldn’t recommend Laura more highly.

My husband and I have chatted with a few dozen brokers during our last two years of open house visits. I can safely say that Laura Miller is in a class by herself. She is extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and attentive to every detail of the home purchase process. The Laura Miller Team and their network of Westchester contacts always went the extra mile, working around our busy work and baby schedules to make time for us. Best of all, Laura is one of the most patient people I've ever met. We never felt the slightest pressure to move forward with any step of the process until all of our concerns were reviewed and fully addressed. We were very fortunate to have her in our corner and are thrilled to move into our new home!

We worked with Laura to find a house for our family in Scarsdale (we ended up buying in Quaker Ridge). We never lived in Westchester and never owned a house, and it was extremely helpful to have a local pro like Laura helping us throughout the process. Laura is exceptionally knowledgeable about the area and her advice and guidance were invaluable every step of the way - from picking the right neighborhood to negotiating the purchase of the house. We really enjoyed working with Laura and would strongly recommend her services to anyone looking in Scarsdale.

Laura represented us in our recent purchase of a property in Irvington, NY. We cannot be more pleased with her service. She is knowledgeable, resourceful, and responsive. She was able to address our concerns and help us resolve issues every step of the way from price negotiation, house inspection, signing of the contract to the closing of the sale. We have no reservations in recommending Laura to anyone who is engaging in real estate transactions.

Laura was wonderful to work with. Her years of experience in Scarsdale and knowledge of the market were huge assets. She guided on us on how to stage and show our home in the best light possible and provided time and her own resources to get the job done. Her professional and calm demeanor made the process of selling our home go smoothly and I would highly recommend Laura to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in Scarsdale or the surrounding area.
- July 1, 2019
Laura Miller was recommended to us by Suburban Jungle and she did an excellent job with our house purchase in Scarsdale, NY. She was very knowledgeable about the market and individual properties. She helped us negotiate in the competitive bids transaction and we got the house we really wanted. Even after we closed and moved in, Laura continues to be a useful resource for all the local information and contacts. We highly recommend working with her!
- June 26, 2019
Laura was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. She was incredibly responsive whenever we had any questions or had any concerns. I highly recommend Laura Miller if you are looking to sell your home.

Laura is a true expert in the area and seems to know everything about (and everyone in) Scarsdale/Edgemont! From our first meeting, she knew exactly the style of house we were looking for, and she was very respectful of our time (especially since we viewed some of the properties with a little one). As first time buyers, we were a bit naive and needed a lot of guidance as to the process of buying a home and negotiating different terms. She really walked us through the process and was responsive 24/7! Once we were in contract, Laura was able to connect us with many local service providers to evaluate potential work on the property. She even was able to connect me with other local moms to get doctor and school recommendations and other tips for settling into the area. She simply went above and beyond what we expected, and we can’t recommend her enough!

It was a delight to work with Laura Miller. As a real estate agent myself, i found her to be professional, knowledgeable and always available. Laura gave me excellent advice and she found a buyer within a few weeks. Not only was she great at her job, but she is a lovely person. Smart and engaging. I can't recommend her enough!
- June 9, 2019
Laura helped us purchase our new home in Scarsdale. Our search was short since we already had a house in mind, but we relied heavily on Laura to guide us through the process. It’s obvious that she is very experienced and thorough in her work. She is an effective negotiator and delivered all of our “must-haves”. Laura is well-connected locally and provided us competent and trustworthy resources, such as our home inspector, real estate lawyer, and various contractors. Even after we moved in, she continues to reach out and helped introduce us to our new neighbors. We highly recommend Laura to any first time buyers as she is very straightforward and realistic, so we had reasonable expectations and no surprises.
- January 24, 2019
Laura was a tremendous asset to my wife and I throughout our home search and buying process. During our initial conversations and meetings in person, Laura educated us on Scarsdale and helped us obtain a better feel for the town, schools and various neighborhoods. Then over the course of six months, Laura stuck with us as we viewed many houses, helping us weigh the pros/cons of each and ultimately finding the right home for us. Having worked with other realtors in the past, I can honestly say that our experience with Laura was above-and-beyond. If you are searching for a home in Scarsdale/Edgemont we highly recommend that you work with Laura.

I highly recommend Laura if you are looking to buy a house in Scarsdale. She is an amazing real estate broker. My wife and I were looking for a house for almost 2 years. Laura was extremely patient, and always accessible whenever we needed her. Her knowledge of the market and excellent reputation within the local real estate community were both beneficial for us as buyers, especially when we finally found our house in which she came through and got the deal done for us.

If you are looking for an agent to help you buy or sell properties in Scarsdale, look no further and call Laura immediately. We had the great pleasure to work with Laura twice. The first time she represented us as a buyer's agent and the second time as a seller's agent. In both cases, Laura showed the highest professionism one can hope. She is very knowledgeable about the area (she grew up in Scarsdale), sharp, patient, and resourceful. She is great at solving problems, which was highly valuable when we tried to sell the house. The buyers had many requests and some of them were difficult to accommodate. Laura made the process as painless as possible for us. We didn't even show up in closing as we were overseas at the time. The buyers had a bunch of requests the night before closing. It was a severe understatement to say we were stressful. Laura didn't simply forward the requests to us like most agents would do. She took care of them! We couldn't thank her enough. If Zillow allows a six-star rating, we would give it to Laura.
- July 18, 2018
We had two very recent engagements with Laura and her team: (1) we relocated from another state and engaged Laura to find us a rental home; and, (2) given our positive experience, we continued to work with her to find a home in the area to purchase, and we closed last week. Throughout both processes, Laura was extremely knowledgeable of the area, efficient, thoughtful, professional, and always very responsive. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Laura and her team and would highly recommend them.

Laura guided us through the process of buying our first home recently. Always city denizens, moving out to the suburbs and finding a home for our family was a big decision. She was wonderful at answering our numerous questions with great patience, and adept at guiding us through the process. Always immediately responsive, and generous with her knowledge, we always very much appreciated her input. Laura's years of experience and knowledge of the local market was very evident during the negotiations and prior to closing. We always felt like we had someone on our side looking out for us. Thank you Laura!

Laura was wonderful to work with. She knows the area well and took the time to understand our needs. Once we found a place we liked, she went above and beyond on every aspect of the process, from negotiating the list price down to helping us pick the floor stain colors and a lot else in between. Having her in our corner made the entire experience from making an offer to moving in stress-free.

Laura is knowledgeable, professional, and a calming influence when things get tense. She pays attention to every detail and is an absolute pleasure to deal with. I’d highly recommend Laura and her team.
- May 28, 2018
Laura knows the different local areas in depth, even knowing some of the houses in detail. She was insightful and helped us navigate the purchase process including which items to insist on and which items to negotiate for. She continues to help us after our purchase in settling into our new community and guiding us on local tax and other matters.
- January 2, 2018
When my husband and I decided to hire a real estate broker we were not convinced. We both consider ourselves to be bright people in our own fields/accomplishments and what warranted this high of a percentage to someone else? Would they truly have that much added value and/or knowledge to be worth it? YES!! Laura is incredibly bright and knowledgeable and was able to guide us through the sale of one home and purchase of another with candor and expertise beyond what we could imagine. She is incredible at what she does, there is a reason why she is so successful. A magic recipe (that is not magic) of being super hardworking, super bright and super experienced....make for someone amazing at her job.
- July 13, 2017
Laura is a wonderful realtor. She is very thoughtful and patient. She worked with us for over 9 months and dozens of showings and helped us get into the perfect house for our family. She knows the area well and really helped us think through all aspects of moving to Scarsdale. Laura's law background was extremely helpful during negotiations and during our closing. I would recommend Laura to anyone moving to Westchester.
- July 27, 2017
Laura is outstanding - she will truly customize your search because she takes the time to get to know you and your family! My son (6) still asks about her!! Caring, kind, considerate, assertive, strong, and wicked smart!
- July 27, 2017
Laura is perhaps the best real estate agent that I have met. She has a deep understanding and knowledge of the local real estate market. She understands not just the real estate market but also anticipates all other needs for services that may arise out of a sale/ purchase. There are a lot of moving parts when you get into a real estate transaction and she helped / advised us on all the aspects. She helped us tie it all together. She was available even post sale for any advise . It seemed like she was available 24/7 - she responds to messages / emails even late at night. Most importantly, she never pushed us to make a quick decision - was very patient through the process.
- June 22, 2017
Laura is absolutely outstanding. She was extremely responsive and quickly understood the kind of house we were looking for. We lost multiple bidding wars before Laura, and her advice helped us make a successful bid on the home we bought. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

Laura did an excellent job finding a home for us to purchase and aiding us in navigating a complicated purchase. When an issue arose near the closing, she offered to pay for a service to be performed, ensuring that the deal went through. I highly recommend her.
- March 27, 2017
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!!!
- January 30, 2017
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.

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.

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.

- January 30, 2017
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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
- June 12, 2016
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)

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.

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.
- August 21, 2015
Laura was wonderful to work with.

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.
