Westport native Laura Kottler offers a confident, capable approach to real estate, thanks to her more than 14 years of experience in the Fairfield County market. She's collaborative and creative, demonstrating unflappable grace under pressure and agile resourcefulness, with both her clients and her colleagues. Clients praise her patient and amiable approach, her open and consistent communication, unfailing integrity, and ability to calmly help them navigate their significant financial, housing and life decisions. Laura is a Founding Member of REALM, the world's first globally collaborative membership of world-class luxury real estate professionals, providing access to the world's most affluent buyers. She also is a Co-Founder of The East Coast Network, a collaboration of trusted Compass real estate advisors, committed to taking the client experience to a whole new level.
Prior to real estate, Laura was a successful executive recruiter — a profession that honed her superior research and negotiation skills, as well as her ability to develop and nurture relationships. No stranger to working with people at the most vulnerable, highly charged points in their lives, Laura offers a hands-on advisory approach to everyone, from first-time homeowners, to sellers of luxury waterfront properties, to investors, with her signature client service and solutions-driven responsiveness. Laura expertly serves buyers and sellers throughout Fairfield County, with first hand knowledge about waterfront properties. She is also an active participant in a national agent referral network that helps clients no matter where they live or want to live.
While raised in Connecticut, Laura has also lived and worked in San Francisco and Chicago. She holds a bachelor's degree, magna cum laude, in Political Science and Education from Wheaton College (MA). After raising their three children, Laura and her husband now enjoy living in the unique island community of Harborview in South Norwalk, CT. She enjoys long beach and country road walks, renovating her 1791 Dorset, Vermont home, trips into New York City to enjoy time with two of her three adult children, gardening, travel, and coastal living. Whether she's sharing the name of the best local contractors, a barber, or the latest must-try restaurant, Laura is a well-known resource for all things Fairfield County, and a trusted advisor well after the real estate transaction is closed.
