Welcome to Laura Anderson Los Angeles Real Estate Group
Laura grew up in the real estate business as her mother Gloria was a top agent and manager in the Detroit area and in Santa Monica. Laura’s early career was in the entertainment industry, producing commercials globally with award-winning producers and directors. Eventually, Laura felt the call to follow in her mother’s footsteps into the real estate industry. The organizational skills she learned managing large productions were perfectly suited to her role as a top-producing real estate agent: attention to detail; negotiating skills, and an ability to bring people together.
“I live where I work and understand the community and who the buyers are. Working with me, you should feel like you’re being fully supported through the whole process, whether it is a seller’s market or a buyer’s market, I have a strategy tailored just to you.”
Laura is also a Seniors Real Estate Specialist and works with clients 55+ as they face challenging decisions about estate planning, retirement, downsizing, adapting their homes to “age in place,” moving to new homes or communities out of state, or moving into local independent or assisted living facilities.
Laura is deeply involved with her community, supporting the Good Shepherd Shelter, Crescent Heights Elementary School, and her Annual Food Drive and donates a portion of her commission to local charities. Laura lives in Faircrest Heights, a mid-Los Angeles neighborhood, where she serves as President of the local Faircrest Heights Neighborhood Association, as well as a business representative on the board of the P.I.C.O. Neighborhood Council, which includes nearby neighborhoods. When Laura can take a break, she enjoys walking in her neighborhood with her dog Sophie.

Integrity, commitment, and professionalism are what you will find in every interaction with Laura Anderson. I first met Laura at a local neighborhood meeting in LA in 2018, several months before my company closed its LA location. I had just purchased my dream home in LA in 2016 and needed to find a new job. Once I found a new job, it required relocating to Portland, OR. Facing a looming timeline for relocation, I called Laura, and she met with me the very next day. Not only did she have empathy for my situation, but she came to our first meeting with a fully developed marketing plan for how she would sell my home, detailed lists of comparable houses, and a pricing strategy that she felt would not only sell my house quickly but also maximize my return. I was immediately impressed that Laura was not only overprepared for our first meeting but was ready to start immediately. My trust in Laura only strengthened throughout the listing process, where she took care of every detail, allowing me the space to focus on the relocation and my new job. She quickly jumped into action, preparing the home for listing and showings while I was in temporary housing for my new job. In under 60 days, Laura found a buyer for my home and negotiated an offer that was $200k over what I had paid for the house less than two years before. She made every step of the process as painless as possible for me and took care of everything from completing minor repairs to cleaning. and ensuring everything was perfect for closing. I never had to fly back to LA and could focus on my new job because Laura covered every detail. It was the smoothest and most pleasant experience I have had as a seller.
In 2022, when my company closed several offices and allowed employees to work permanently from home, I quickly contacted Laura for her help again. I desperately wanted to return to Los Angeles and was ready to purchase a new home. Laura jumped into action, helping me understand the changes to the LA real estate landscape since I relocated. After identifying several properties I flew to LA and spent the weekend with Laura looking at properties. As a buyer, not a seller I was delighted that Laura’s commitment from a few years earlier had not changed. She did all the leg work for me ahead of time before I arrived in LA. She had properties pre-selected and a binder ready for me with all of the information for each. She scheduled private shows to ensure that we would have time to look at each property without the crowds at open houses. When I didn’t find the perfect place on the first visit, Laura continued to locate properties for me remotely. Each time I found a property I liked, Laura would scope out the neighborhood, provide comps, and schedule showings virtually over FaceTime with me so I would not have to make another trip to LA. Ultimately, I ended up falling in love with a property that was one of Laura’s listings. Given my past experience with Laura and the trust we had built, I had no reservations about purchasing a property where she was both the listing agent and represented me as the buyer. Once again, Laura Anderson over delivered. During the entire purchase process, she represented my interests with the utmost integrity and transparency. I got exactly what I wanted without any unnecessary back and forth. Laura was my advocate throughout the entire purchase, ensuring that everything was seamless and respectful of my time and the fact that I was not local to LA.
My positive experience with Laura continued after the offer was accepted. During the closing process, I identified several things that I wanted to be done at the property that required contractors and vendors. Rather than wait until after closing, Laura understood the stress involved with a long-distance relocation and jumped into action. She sent me a list of trusted contractors and vendors that she had worked with in the past. She met them at the property during escrow so they could provide estimates for me. She took time out of her schedule to go to the property and oversee the work that was being done before closing. I never expected this of her or any real estate agent. She simply offered her help to get everything done before I moved in to ease the process for me. I’m eternally grateful that she took all of the stress out of not only buying the home but having upgrades done before I even stepped foot in the driveway. It reinforces Laura’s commitment to her clients and why I would never work with another agent in the Los Angeles area.
When you work with Laura, she treats you like you are the only client in the world with her dedication, clear communication, and attention to detail. She is the definition of professionalism, and her honesty and integrity are rarely found in the competitive real estate industry. When you put your trust in Laura Anderson, she will deliver for you.
George Olexa -Seller and Buyer Mid City
“Laura is a rarity. She is highly skilled, highly sought after, and genuinely cares. Laura helped me through the buying, selling, and renting process numerous times. Her ability to produce results quickly and efficiently leaves no doubt in my mind she should be your go to as well. I cannot recommend Laura highly enough, she will craft a strategy and plan with you and guide you through the process from start to finish. I doubt many real estate agents live to her standards and ability to produce results.”
Happy Seller – 1089 S Mansfield Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90019 – Ravinder Randhawa
“Laura Anderson got us our first home! Thank you Laura! Laura and her team helped us find the perfect spot in a great location. Our offer was excepted two days after our wedding, so the whole thing felt like a fairy tale. We spent nearly a year looking at places, and missing on a couple, but in the end we found a home, close to family with historical significance (and tax benefits). Stay the course folks, good things don’t generally happen overnight! Laura’s greatest strength is her local knowledge. She’s a true local with real expertise and relationships. She only sent us options that would actually work for us, which helped us stay on track. Thanks again Laura Anderson Team!”
John Heller – 5189 1/2 Village Grn Los Angeles, CA 90016
We moved from New Orleans to Los Angeles in 2022. We are relatively experienced home buyers but we knew that the process was going to be different and much more challenging in L.A. Laura and her associate, Bellanitta Guerra, expertly guided us to and from neighborhoods, agents, houses, prices, the loan process, everything! When we were ready to get serious about offers, Laura got us into the counteroffer stage on every house we were interested in and then helped us evaluate whether or not the counters were good for the house and good for us. The second house we put a serious counter on, Laura got us an accepted offer!!! Once we had the accepted offer, that was where Laura’s work truly began as she navigated us through the loans, inspections, contingencies, and all the other challenges of buying a home in a sellers’ market. We closed on the property on-time, at a price we are happy with, in a house and neighborhood that we are thrilled to be in. Thank you!!!
Elsie & Derek – Happy Buyers- Highland Park – 6224 Roy St., Los Angeles, CA 90042
Laura expertly guided us through this process as first time home buyers, patiently explaining our options every step of the way. She is a true professional and knew exactly how to make our first offer competitive enough to close the deal in this wild market. She pivoted quickly any time issues arose, so it’s no surprise she keeps earning the title of “Top Producer!” We especially recommend her to anyone working in the entertainment industry, as Laura’s past experience as a producer made her so accommodating to our busy schedules. We really can’t say enough great things about Laura and Bella! Happy Buyers – 3711 York Blvd. Highland Park
Brad Barry – Bought Single Family home in 2022 in Los Angeles, CA.
Laura was amazing from start to finish. We had a private showing one week prior to our house going onto the market and received an offer the very next day! Laura was pivotal in getting us a great offer with the terms we needed. The escrow and close process was seamless and easy. If you are looking to sell your home, Laura is undoubtedly the best agent to go with!
Patrick & Brooke Schmidt – Sellers – 1968 Tudor Lane – The Faircrest, Faircrest Heights
“Laura made us feel like we were her only clients. Immediate responses, quick turnaround time, endless phone calls to talk us off ledges, hold our hands, give her impartial advice or patiently walk us through the process of first-time home buying. Her knowledge, skill and customer service are all top notch, but with Laura you also get an agent who is sensitive to the emotional roller coaster of the home buying process.”
Suzanne & Max – Buyers – 10960 Longford S – Sylmar
“Laura is a total pleasure to work with. So professional, so detail oriented, so on top of everything. She makes it a breeze to deal with such a complex transaction. Second, she had multiple offers for our house before it even posted on the listings! And all way way WAY above asking price. Laura has years of experience, knows the neighborhood markets inside and out, and also has contacts galore-for plumbers, electricians, pest control, inspections, escrow- soup to nuts! She even found renters for us before we were ready to sell. We love her and will never think of working with any other agent. Oh and did we say, she COULD NOT BE NICER! We can’t recommend her highly enough.”
Sollance Mitchell- Seller – 1731 Hayworth – Faircrest Heights
“My wife and I are beyond pleased with Laura. She was referred to us by our neighbor and it was the best decision we made choosing to work with her. During our initial meeting, we knew she was extremely knowledgeable of the area with a lot of networking connections amongst other realtors. She had a vision and a plan on how to best showcase our home. We received multiple offers within one weekend of showing and we ended up selling over the asking price. Thank you, Laura for all of your hard work, dedication to make sure we were well represented. We appreciate you!”
David Lee – Seller – 5710 S Glennie Lane – Parkside Thurman – Mid LA
“Laura was a fantastic representative of my home. The process was fast, efficient and resulted in a very successful sales price! She also helped me find a temporary rental before I move to my new home, assisted with a handyman for minor repairs, etc. She was my partner in the process from A-Z. Highly recommend!”
Virginia – Seller -5991 Pickford St – Faircrest Heights
Laura and her team are a group of very knowledgeable real estate professionals. They can guide you through every step of the home buying and selling process. In particular, there is no other realtor who has as much knowledge or expertise as Laura when it comes to buying and selling homes in the Faircrest Heights neighborhood of LA and its surrounding areas. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in that part of town, you should do yourself a huge favor and work with Laura as there is simply no other realtor who can match her local knowledge.
Alidad & Lauren Damooei– Sellers – 1915 S Crescent Heights Blvd -Faircrest Heights
Laura is an absolute dream to work with! Thanks to her, I just recently purchased my very first home (woohoo!) which was a very daunting and scary process for me, especially since I knew hardly anything about how it all works. Laura was the perfect agent for me because she was incredibly helpful in walking me through the process and making me feel a lot less overwhelmed by it all. She would take the time to explain each step in detail and in a way that was very digestible and made me feel at ease. I am so grateful that I had her by my side. Additionally, she was extremely thoughtful and strategic in finding me condos that she knew I would love. It only took a few places before finding the perfect one because she knew exactly what I was looking for. What makes her a fabulous agent is that she really considers the person is who she is finding a home for and really tries to match them with what she knows they’ll want in not only a home, but also a location. I couldn’t have asked for a better agent. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to everyone I know!
Zoe Di Stefano– Buyer – West Hollywood
“Laura Anderson is one of the best realtors I’ve ever experienced. She does her homework on the history of the home, the neighborhood, and the neighbors. She is attentive, not pushy, gets to the point. I have been remodeling homes in Palm Springs and Laura recently sold my house in LA. While I was away in PalmSprings, I completely trusted Laura with my home. She went above and beyond what she had to and did it with such kindness. Laura is not only sweet and professional, but very hardworking, which is why she is so successful!”
Vicki Vitale– Seller – 6001 Pickford St – Faircrest Heights
When it came time to sell our home we knew there could be no one else for the job besides Laura Anderson. We’ve gotten to know Laura over the last ten years and have recommended her to other owners in our townhouse complex after seeing her sell homes quicker and for better prices than other agents, and our recent experience didn’t disappoint. Laura was fantastic in walking us through all the stages of selling our house and making sure we got the best value for it. She didn’t just act as our agent, she became a trusted friend, making what could be a stressful experience so much easier. Laura was able to use her years of experience and strong contacts to get us numerous offers immediately. In helping us find a new home, Laura used the same care and attention to help us with the process. She is always at the end of a phone and ready to answer any questions. Her relationships and knowledge of this business are second-to-none and as a result of this we have had an offer accepted on our dream home! We could not recommend Laura any more highly. With her as your agent, you couldn’t be in better hands!
Zach & Elizabeth Isenberg – Sellers – Parkside Thurman, Mid City LA
“Laura and her team were absolutely fantastic. As first time home buyers in a hyper competitive real estate market, it was reassuring to have such savvy, dependable and professional people on our side. Laura knew how to negotiate and make our offers stand out, and despite our losing hope a few times, she remained encouraging — without being pushy. Does Laura ever sleep? With her instantaneous responses to text and email, I’m not sure. Her assistant Bella was also easy to communicate with, always showing up on time with a smile and enthusiasm. (Shout out to her dog Ghost, the most adorable canine in real estate!) Even after closing, Laura and Bella have remained in touch, helping us organize repairs and eager to help. They truly care about their clients and building relationships in their community. For sure, if we ever need to buy or sell a house in LA again, we will call Laura with zero hesitation!”
Bronwen Roberts and Victor Maldonado – Buyers – El Sereno
“My husband and I are beyond pleased with Laura. She was referred to us by our neighbor and it was the best decision we made choosing to work with her. During our initial meeting, we knew she was extremely knowledgeable of the area with a lot of networking connections amongst other realtors. She had a vision and a plan on how to best showcase our home. We received multiple offers within one weekend of showing and we ended up selling over the asking price. Thank you, Laura for all of your hard work, dedication to make sure we were well represented. We appreciate you!”
David & Gloria Lee – Sellers -Parkside Thurman, Mid City LA
“Laura was an absolute star helping us sell our house. She was very organized and took care of everything from photos, to staging, to inspections, to termite repair work. Everything was kept to a tight schedule and she even stepped in to help our buyers secure a loan despite the fact that she did not work for the buyers. We got multiple offers on our house and we ended up very happy with the sale overall. I highly recommend Laura to anyone wanting to buy or sell in Los Angeles.”
Levine Family – Sellers – Hayworth Ave. – Faircrest Heights
“Thank you Laura from my family to yours. We are beyond thrilled to be in our new house and owe it all to you. The process was so seamless and you made us feel secure at each and every step. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
Duane Fogwell – Buyers – 942 Olancha Drive, Mount Washington
We moved out of state and left the tasks of renovation and sale of our townhome in Laura’s very capable hands. Throughout the entire process, she kept in constant touch with us via phone calls, e-mails and pictures. Her marketing strategy produced competitive bids, and she ultimately sold our townhome in less than a week obtaining the highest price ever paid for a unit in the history of our complex. Laura’s outstanding negotiating skills yielded a favorable term of sale involving an HOA special assessment that could have potentially cost us several thousand dollars. Thanks to Laura, it did not. – We are beyond thrilled with the outcome Laura achieved for us. She has our very highest recommendation.
Karen and Ed Tessmer – Sellers 8174 Manitoba St. #1 Playa Del Rey
“When looking to sell our home, we went directly to a pro. Laura Anderson prepared us, guided us, and step by step showed us best how to show-off our home. In just one open house we received multiple offers over asking price. We couldn’t have done it without Laura’s help and guidance. She’s the best and we would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their first home or 3rd home. Laura does all the work to make it happen. Thank you Laura.”
Olga Mercado – Seller 1857 S. Hayworth Ave Faircrest Heights
We chose Laura because she is so well known in our neighborhood Faircrest Heights and has such a great pulse on the area. From the very beginning she was totally professional, friendly and wicked smart. This is not her first rodeo and she knows exactly what to do, when to do, what to fix, what to focus on, who to hire, and how to get your home sold….and in our case; with multiple bids and over asking. She’s great!
