"Laurie is an absolute superstar agent. She made what could have been a complicated and stressful process of searching for a new home feel fun and seamless! At every step of the way, Laurie served as an exceptional guide, from finding my dream location to helping strategize on the intricacies of negotiations and the board approval process. Laurie is one of the most diligent and solution-oriented people I have ever worked with, and her passion for what she does clearly shines through. Beyond doing her job at the highest levels, Laurie is simply a pleasure to spend time with. I'd recommend Laurie without any reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in NYC!"
Lauren, First-Time Co-op Buyer
“We sold our home from halfway across the country, in the middle of the pandemic: in that challenging and particular context we were so grateful to be able to work with Laurie. She gracefully navigated the unprecedented—organizing safe open houses for interested buyers, for example—and gave great advice about the timing of listing, proper preparation of the apartment and appropriate pricing. Laurie walked us through all scales of decision-making, and we were very happy with the end results; our apartment was not on the market long and we ended up with a well-qualified buyer who was genuinely enthusiastic about the apartment and who knew the neighborhood well. We recommend Laurie wholeheartedly!”
Rachel, First-Time Co-op Seller
“I was so fortunate to work with Laurie on the sale of my apartment! The decision to sell the apartment, which had been my home of 40 years, was an emotional one, to say the least. I was very nervous and secretly dreading the process. However, I soon realized that I was in very good hands working with Laurie. A seasoned, sensitive professional, her people skills and attention to detail are impeccable and her assessment of the market extremely accurate. She was very supportive, helping me navigate every step of the sales process quickly and painlessly to an extremely successful completion. To say that the results of the sale far exceeded my expectations is an understatement. Initially, when Laurie shared the offers that we received, I was actually speechless!”

“This may come across as hyperbole, but it's the truth: without Laurie, my wife and I would not have survived our move from Washington, DC to New York. Not only did she help us safely navigate the shark infested waters that is the New York real estate market, Laurie continually acted as our much-needed advocate when dealing with brokers, developers, the bank, and so on. And even better, as a lifetime New Yorker, Laurie brought an invaluable degree of insight into every neighborhood and Borough that really helped us choose the perfect place. And perhaps most importantly, she's a ton of fun to be around on those grueling days of house hunting! Simply put: every New Yorker will tell you they've got "the best broker"—but if it isn't Laurie, don't bother.”
“My husband and I spent a few years casually looking for an apartment as a second home. Finally, friends suggested Stribling and we were lucky enough to be referred to Laurie. Within a short period of time, Laurie figured out our tastes and preferences. She knew that we had to work together long-distance and she always used our time and opportunities wisely. She understood our parameters. She was outstanding at finding the kinds of places that would suit us, and after several long “shopping” days we happened on the perfect apartment for us in the perfect neighborhood. In fact, it exceeded our hopes and dreams. With Laurie’s expert help we made an offer that was accepted. When unforeseen problems arose from the seller’s side, Laurie was always calm and helpful and kept us informed, night and day until closing day finally arrived. She was both expert in her knowledge of how things work and emotionally very intelligent in handling delicate matters. We have already referred Laurie to several friends who will no doubt choose to work with her. We could not have been happier with every matter that she handled. We very much look forward to staying in touch and feel that we have made a new friend in New York City.”

“We recently helped our 25-year old daughter purchase her first apartment in Manhattan. At various times, it seemed the deal would fall through: why didn’t the lawyer get the Power of Attorney done in advance? Why didn’t the mortgage company anticipate that we couldn’t sign papers when we were away, with no access to scanners and printers? Through it all, Laurie remained calm and guided us through the process of NYC real estate. This wasn’t our first real estate deal, but it was the first one in Manhattan, and all of the rules and customs are different. Thank you to Laurie for being the voice of reason, through the insanity that is this process.”
