"I have known Laura Shirley for years. As a friend, she has always been smart, personable, and caring. I have now learned that as a real estate agent, she exhibits all those qualities I knew her to have as a friend, plus she is an efficient, professional deal-maker with a keen eye for design and a wonderful partner to have by your side. She seamlessly guided me through the complicated process of buying a place at Paradise Cove in Malibu, which actually consists of buying a trailer with a land lease rather than purchasing a piece of real estate. I’d never been through a process like that before, but Laura navigated the whole transaction smoothly with no delays or hiccups. She was always willing to help with any detail to get the job done. I now have my own little bit of paradise in the cove! I couldn’t be happier about it and I couldn’t have done it without Laura! "

"Laura Shirley is an outstanding real estate agent who I highly recommend. She recently assisted me in selling my historic home in Hancock Park. Throughout the process, Laura was dedicated, collaborative, and acted with my best interests in mind. Her design knowledge and industry resources were essential in preparing, staging, and marketing the house, and she was tireless in her efforts to ensure that everything was done to showcase the property in the best possible light. What I appreciated most was Laura's communication style; as a busy executive, I felt that she respected my time and worked efficiently to find solutions that avoided any issues before they could become problems. Overall, Laura is an exceptional agent who goes above and beyond to ensure her clients' needs are met, and I would highly recommend her without reservation."

"We recently engaged Laura Shirley as the listing agent on our house in Los Angeles and couldn't be happier with our choice. From the moment Laura started the process of getting our house ready for sale, her advice about timing, staging and showing our house was spot on, especially in an increasingly tough sales environment (surging mortgage rates and softening of the market in our area). As we were already moved out of town and away, Laura took responsibility for myriad tasks that had to be completed during the preparation and showing of the house. She really went the extra mile for us, arranging everything, following up with all parties and even did some landscaping herself! Thanks to Laura's marketing and presentation efforts we received multiple offers over our asking price within days of the house listing. Her counsel and guidance during the counteroffer/acceptance negotiations and escrow went a long way to relieve some of our stress during the process. We think that Laura is an exemplary realtor, a true professional and a great partner in what can be a difficult and stressful process. We would highly recommend her services to anyone. "

"Laura Shirley is truly a professional and caring real estate agent. As a senior changing homes at my age seemed next to impossible, but Laura made the daunting process painless for me. Not only did she list my condo and manage a sale above the asking price, but she also helped me find my dream home. She was by my side during both the sale and purchase. Her assistance didn’t end with signing all the papers. She was there on moving day, directing the workers. Her endless resources were instrumental in finding a mover, an electrician, and a handyman. Laura is a confident, knowledgeable, and reliant agent filled with boundless energy. She will forever be both my agent and my friend. "

"Laura was patient, innovative, creative, and incredibly kind in her approach to selling our home and helping us find our perfect new home. She took what felt like an overwhelming process and made it feel not only doable and easy, but fun as well. Laura was hands-on in her approach and always reachable to answer any of our questions. She is such a knowledgeable source of the LA real estate market, and she led us through the buying and selling process with confidence and security. We can't recommend her enough! "
