Testimonials from my clients
Simply put Laura will get it done for you: the most $ in your pocket with the least amount of work required from you. In addition to everything listed under her skill set I'd add strategic and savvy. I would highly recommend utilizing her for both selling and purchasing a home.
"Laura Bertolacci is a true professional with an impeccable reputation in the Real Estate Industry. Laura has been my Real Estate advisor through three transactions. In every instance, Laura has been an expert with her knowledge and advice."

"Laura did an outstanding job on this sale in every respect: great client service & responsiveness to our needs, superb knowledge of the market development, development of a strategy for our particular situation with a presentation of options. In short, she's a dedicated professional. We would recommend her highly and, in fact, have done so.”
"Without a doubt, Laura Bertolacci is the most professional and competent real estate broker I have ever the pleasure to work with. Laura came highly recommended by several Park Atherton home owners and board members. At our first meeting, she provided my out of area family with a marketing plan and information discussing how she would sell my deceased sister’s home. Key to this estate sale was satisfying my #1 issue --- how to bring in sufficient qualified buyers for a sale within 30 days. Laura’s accomplished this by helping us price the home to sell, bringing in multiple offers, and closing escrow in 45 days after signing listing documents. During these 45 days Laura’s attention to detail, follow-up, and keeping me informed was excellent. She gets an A+ for a job well done. Again a very special thanks for a job well done."
"Laura Bertolacci was a fantastic realtor who helped us sell our home in San Carlos. Her experience in preparing our house, marketing, and negotiating the sale was phenomenal and helped us get a great price and smooth transaction."
"Laura was fabulous. This was an emotion packed year for my family. Laura's guidance and completion of the sale of my late brother's house was flawless. We feel lucky to have had her as our realtor."
"Laura is experienced, knowledgeable, competitive, trustworthy, dependable, aggressive, detail oriented, supportive, accessible, and just an all around nice person to work with. She made selling my home very manageable. She is tops!!"
“We thoroughly enjoyed working with Laura. She is a true professional and we could not have been more pleased with the service she provided. We will always recommend her to anyone we know.”
Mr. & Mrs. Smith
“Phenomenal! Thanks to Laura for all her assistance.”
Mr. & Mrs. Lewis
"Laura was conscientious and extremely efficient in the marketing as well as negotiations and the final closing. Her efforts were instrumental in our selling the property in a timely fashion."
"Laura is a highly professional agent and an extremely nice person. She handled our business in a remarkable way paying attention to the minutest details. It was a pleasure dealing with such a efficient lady."
"Absolute professionalism! From good recommendations for services the property required, to realistic expectations of how to approach the sale - will definitely recommend and use Laura's services in the future."
Laura is not only a top notch real estate broker but also is a great person. Laura helped us seven years ago to buy our first house. As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions and hesitations. Laura was extremely patient and took time to explain the pros and cons of every property. This was 2001 when properties flew fast with multiple overbid offers. Laura guided us through every step and gave us room to make our own decisions. She took time to get to know us and to understand what was important. Her knowledge of the peninsula and especially Belmont/San Carlos/Redwood City area is superb. Laura was also good at pointing out what we should be lookin at when buying a house. Finally, with Laura's help we were able to find and buy a great home.
Fast forward 7 years and 2 kids. We decided to sell our home and buy a bigger house. Without a second thought we hired Laura to do both. Now, as more experienced home owners and house-hunters, we needed less input on buying but more input on selling. Laura once again guided and worked around our schedule to stage and sell the house and at the same time find us a new home. Amazingly from the first phonecall to Laura to the move into the new house took less than 3 months. We got a great house in a great neighborhood.
I see the following as Laura's key strengths: * Communications -- Laura is always on top of everything and stays in constant touch with the client. I knew exactly what was happening every day. * Experience -- with Laura you are not getting a fly by realtor but an industry expert with key insights into the peninsula market -- properties, owners, and other agents. Her gut feel on what sells is absolutely amazing -- the best thing one can do to sell their home with Laura is to listen to every advice and execute. * Personal touch -- Laura goes beyond the required to create a bond and really to get to know you. * Knowing when to push and when to back off. Too often we hear of overly pushy realtors or realtors who do nothing. You will find neither with Laura. * Intensity and energy -- Lauara is full of energy and that matches our personalities very well.
Bottom line -- if you are looking for a house or looking to sell a house -- call Laura immediately. I know we will if we ever need to.

Laura Bertolacci.....Great RE/MAX Realtor :
We were blessed to have inherited my Husbands, family home. We were able to offer it to our Son and his Family to live in for 3 years, while he got his Registered Nursing Degree. When he finished his Air Force Duty, and moved back to California.
After the kids purchased a New Home in Rancho Cordova, it was time to tackle selling the old homestead. We were referred to Laura Bertolacci, by a very pleased past client. Laura had sold their parents home, and assisted them in purchasing their first home.
We made an appointment with Laura, she was so professional. After she toured the house, she presented us with a vision of what it could be, and how to make it a reality. Laura was amazing, she has a Stable of Painters, Gardeners, Electricians, Plumbers, Handy men, Stagers...if you need it she's got it. Not to mention that they all agreed to be paid at Escrow, meaning no Out of Pocket for us, which we could not afford. Her crew kicked in and WOW! When it was done and staged, my husband had to go out and recheck the Address. It looked beautiful. I cannot say enough.... what a difference staging makes.
Laura is so good at Networking that the first potential buyer, to look at our property bought it. It never really went on the Open Market Listing, yeah Laura is that good. And it didn't end there, Laura held our hand all the way thru Escrow, literally right there at our side.
Oh did I mention that we followed our Grandkids to Rancho Cordova....and that Laura partnered with a Realtor here to insure that we were taken under wing, and that we got a Great Deal.
Now granted we are currently in a challenging Real Estate Market.....but if anyone can deliver, my bet is on Laura. So when we do sell our Family home of 30 years, in Fremont.... Laura will be our Realtor.
"She was excellent--she kept us all to date essentially daily, and really keeps tabs on the market on an ongoing basis. We will certainly recommend her to our neighbors."
"Laura was incredible! I had the best experience! She kept me well informed and bent over backwards. She really eased my fears. Awesome job!"
"My husband and I were referred to Laura by a friend. We had already tried selling our home earlier in the year without success. We had taken it off the market and were in the process of trying to find another realtor. We actually interviewed three local realtors and decided to go with Laura. We never regretted our decision.
Laura was right up front in the original meeting explaining her approach and hands on style. Her communication skills are incredible. She kept us apprised of all the necessary details as they came up. There were never any surprises. She had some very positive suggestions for improvements on preparing our home for sale and I’m sure that they helped in selling it so quickly. I believe her experience and guidance was the key to our successful sale. We not only sold our home in less than a week and closed the deal in less than 30 days; we received more then $50k over our asking price.
I would not hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Given the times we are currently going through in this country with home foreclosures, lending challenges and the stock market scares, I feel incredibly lucky to have found Laura to help us sell our home.
I am completely SOLD on Laura and enjoyed the experience. We’re on to our next journey which will take us to Idaho to enjoy our grandchildren and watch them grow up as we grow older."
"Laura is very professional and she knows very well the market, so our house was sold very fast. GREAT JOB!"
"The last time I purchased a home my husband was still alive and he managed the whole process, all I had to do was show up at the title company and sign some papers. Needless to say, I was a little nervous about making a move but I knew it was time. Laura did a great job of holding my hand during the process but without making me feel like an idiot. She was wonderful at showing me houses as they came on the market. I really liked the email program we set up to alert me to new properties and price changes. As a single parent my time is limited and it was nice to be able to sit down when I had a moment and get the latest scoop. Once I finally found a place that I wanted to buy Laura really came through. She wrote up my offer, presented it and let me know right away when it was accepted. I learned that there's a lot that needs to be done between "offer accepted" and "here's the key" and Laura helped me through every bit and kept me very well informed. It all went very smoothly, quickly and painlessly.
Laura has continued to check in with me and make sure things are working out. She checks in to make sure my son and I are happy and taking care of things."
"I can't say enough on how happy our experience was with Laura's handling of both sales of our homes. We strongly recommend her as an agent!"
"We lived in Washington and the house had been neglected for many years. Laura had to have both bathrooms remodeled, replace the kitchen floor and all appliances, plus paint the entire interior and some exterior before it could be put on the market. It sold within a week for $43k over asking!!!"
"A short sale in real estate is not always a pleasant transaction but Laura & her team make it stress free!!!"
Mr. & Mrs. San Diego
"Laura is able to handle and anticipate minor problems as they arise so as to prevent them from disabling the sale. She is a hard working, honest person--a good friend to her profession--wish there were more like her."
"Laura was a great agent for us both as buyers and sellers. We will definitely recommend her to others."
T. Ross & L. Bernardini
“Laura is a ‘Top Gun’. She was always on top of everything and advised me on every process that was happening. I will recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell real estate. Laura Bertolacci is a person and agent that you can count on. Her hard work ethic is very admirable. With all the challenges facing us with this project, she handled all problems with good advice and great follow-up.”
"Laura was recommended to us by friends. She had handled the sale of two homes in that family. We have been extremely grateful for Laura and we would refer anyone to her WITHOUT HESITATION!"
"Laura exceeded all expectations! You could not find a better agent to sell your home!"
"Laura impressed me as a knowledgeable, competent and no-nonsense professional who enjoys her business."
"Laura was a big help on many levels. She worked well with our style, and we would highly recommend her! She was on top of everything and it was good to know she was on our side. It was a joy to work with her."

Laura is the most professional person I have ever deal with. She was aggressive and kept me informed every step of the way. I could not have dreamed of a better person to help me sell my house.
"Laura is a fantastic agent to work with, so organized and professional."
"Laura is amazing! This is the 5th time we have bought or sold from her and we would not use anyone else. She is incredibly responsive, efficient, professional and helpful. I don’t know how she does it! I can’t speak highly enough of her and I recommend her to everyone."
