I'm so happy with Laura's work! I don't know what I would have done without her. She was very detail oriented and gave great guidance the entire time. She did a great job marketing the home, it made the process pain free. I would highly recommend Laura!

When I was ready to buy my first home, I started searching online for a home and a Realtor. I came across Laura's info and called her because of the good reveiws. She took the time to meet me and my fiance and to help us understand the buying process. As a first time homebuyer, she was easy to work with; we never felt like we were being sold, we felt like Laura truly cared about helping us find the right homeand get it through to closing. Laura, you were amazing! I can't wait to show you the improvements we had made!

Laura's expertise and professionalism were wonderful. Most of all, we appreciated her personal touch, really working with and getting to know our family. She always went above and beyond and was always genuinely interested in what we wanted; a real friend. We are so happy in our new home. We wish Laura can bring you just as many blessings through the sale of your old home and the gift of finding your new home!

Working with Laura as our real estate agent was great. From the moment she first walked through the door we felt peace knowing we had placed our home in the hands of an experienced professional we could trust. Laura answered all of our questions patiently and kept consistently kept us informed of the all activites that related to the marketing and sale of our home.She helped us have realistic expectations regarding the sale of our home and worked with us to meet our goals and timetable.
Laura was professional, knowledgable, hardworking and even FUN in the stressful process of selling our home.
It is very easy to give Laura the highest recommendation as we have confidence in her in every way.

Laura was enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. I appreciated that she understood what an emotional experience it is to sell a home. She was flexible and worked within our time frame. Her knowledge about the current market was apparent. She suggested we include specific terms in our contract to potential buyers. For example our house went up on a Friday, due to the "hot market" Laura suggested we let the agents know we would review all bids on Sunday after 6:00. It was a very smart move since we had more than one bid. I was very pleased with all of the team ~Suzie Flack

Laura gave fantastic service in a very difficult market for sellers. Laura was easy to work with, honest, organized and so willing to take care of all the details we couldn't because we had already moved. She oversaw painting, carpeting and repairs while we were gone. I just can't imagine many realtors pulling it all together the way she did. If we ever move back to the area in the future, Laura will be the first one we call!

"True confession: I thought realtors just got in the way of a transaction, and controlled the real estate market like a sort of mafia. As a math guy, I subtracted their costs and discounted any value they could provide. Laura found me listing our place by owner and not getting the results we were hoping for. She patiently challenged my thinking, saying that her goal was to pay for herself. Frustrated and out of my element, I took her up on her offer.
Here's the end results: We sold our place for $65K more than I could get an interested realtor to bite. We found a place where she saved us $100K in the negotiation, buying in it at about 60% of its replacement value. We hit our closing times goal. And we liked working with her!
So, you be the judge. I learned my lesson. While I still met plenty of real estate agents that still supported my previous bias in the last few months :), Laura clearly stands out from the crowd. Give her the challenge to prove her value, and I don't think you'll be disappointed." ~Toby Meisenheimer Year first hired: 2012 (hired more than once) Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

We initially selected Laura as our Realtor because we received an outstanding marketing piece in the mail for another property in the neighborhood. Laura's negotiation skills were outstanding, verbal & written. Anyone wanting to sell their house quickly will benefit from Laura's level of service.

Laura was absolutely so efficient and helped us prepare for our listing as well as describing the details of selling a home. She was always conscious of the needed time frame preparing our home to sell. We are so thankful to have chosen her to help us with our home sale. We actually sold prior to listing! Thank you Laura! Laura has an abundant amount of energy, never slowing down during the time we spent with her. Any questions we had, she answered or found the answers. So yes, we would highly recommend Laura Bruno in the sale or purchase of a home.
-Randy & Kim JohnsonJanuary 13, 2014
Laura assisted us with both selling our previous home and the purchase of our new home. We cannot emphasize enough our complete satisfaction with both transactions. Laura is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market both nationally and locally. She freely shares that information to ensure you make the most informed decision. She even understands the nuances of various neighborhoods right down to specific properties. She is a good listener who clearly understood our needs. She was always honest and straightforward. We never felt that she was telling us what we wanted to hear. Laura's professionalism and excellence were always evident whether a large or small issue. She did a good job of keeping us level headed through even the most stressful moments. We have no hesitation in recommending Laura and feel confident that you be just as satisfied with her service.

Laura's high level of trust, excellent reputation and common life goals & objectives are what made me select her as my realtor. Laura is the best!
-Julie BullockAugust 8, 2013
Laura is by far the best real estate agent that we have dealt with. We have bought and sold a number of homes but none have been handled with such expertise as this one. Laura stayed on top of every situation and provided us with excellent advice. She is also a very energetic, caring person whom we highly recommend. If you want to sell your home or buy another, call Laura you won't be disappointed.

Laura has been a friend & neighbor for 20+ years, that is not why we selected her, however. It is her intelligence, real estate knowledge, her enthusiasm, her efforts to be the best in what she does, her respect for the buyer & seller and her honesty that motivated us to select her. Laura is a true professional, but also a person of integrity. What stands out the most for us was the ease of transaction and clarity of instructions from Laura. ~ Susan & Richard Elliot

We truly appreciate Laura's help in selling our home. Selling on the first day for asking price was amazing! Patty and I would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for a realtor for the following reasons:
Laura's intimate knowledge of homes in our market
Her advice for improvements for us to make to our home prior to listing was both cost effective and market effective.
We loved the staging advice! It made a significant difference.
Laura's follow-up and communication skills were exceptional.
Her pleasant personality and commitment to honesty and integrity throughout the transaction. I felt she truly had our best interests at heart.

Quoted from a letter sent to the President of Baird&Warner:
Dear Mr. Baird;
"Laura Bruno assisted us with the purchase of our current home and the sale of our previous one. Every step of the way through both transactions, Laura under-promised and over-delivered. She listened carefully to our needs and concerns and gave helpful suggestions or leapt into action to solve any problem. Whatever glitch came along, Laura made sure she was part of the solution, not the problem. Her added services such as professional inspection and professional staging before getting ready to sell were greatly appreciated. Laura gave us timely feedback after each showing, made additional suggestions regarding staging and kept us up to date on changing market conditions.My wife and I both agreed it was the first time we ever received full value for our real estate commissions. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with Laura Bruno. She is the best we have ever seen!

When I first put my home up for sale, I had it lised with another realtor for nearly 1 year. When my marketing agreement expired I knew I had to make a change. I called Laura because or her outstanding track record and ranking in Baird & Warner. After we met, we realized that we had mutual frineds in common, many who had worked with Laura. I used to think all realtors were the same, but now I know better. Laura provided me with a insightful and thougtful marketing plan including suggestions and an action plan to prep my home for sale. She worked a professional stager who did a GREAT job to transform my home from a sngle guy's home to "model perfect". My home still took a while to sell, but Laura provided consistent market reports that kept me informed along the way. Her clear communication and business savvy allowed me to rest at ease knowing I was in the hands of a true professionhal. My only regret is that I did not list with Laura the first time around. I would be happy to talk to anyone about my excellent experience working with Laur Bruno.

We hired Laura Bruno to market and sell our home in Naperville. We had heard good things about Laura from others who had worked with her so we called her to come an evaluate our home. Laura provided us with detailed recommedations of improvements to be made to increase the marketability of our home. We chose her complete marketing package that included the services of a home stager, and although skeptical at first the results were amazing. Laura was unique in that she had a "Coming Soon" marketing plan to try to generate excitement about our home before it was listed. We had 5 showings before we were listed and sold above list price with multiple offers. What stands out to us about working with Laura is her honesty and ethics. She always told us the truth and we always felt she was committed to working hard and doing a good job. What more could you want? We HIGHLY recommend Laura.

I wanted to thank-you again for the excellent service you provided. This was our third home and we had previously worked with five real estate agents. None of them had ever met our expectations and therefore, we had set the bar extremely low.Your attention to detail, responsiveness and advice exceeded our past experiences and helped us set a new standard. You came to understand our needs and preferences and used that knowledge to narrow in on our perfect home. Your ability to negotiate effectively resulted in obtaining the price and terms we needed, and your calm demeanor helped us to keep our emotions under control.
I can say without hesitation I will refer your services. Feel free to have potential clients contact me if they are looking for references.

Selling and buying a home is a stressful time. Laura was a great person to have on our side during this process. She helped in all aspects and made our home sale a very positive experience ~ Melissa Davis
-Melissa DavisAugust 23, 2013
We purchased our current home through her and she has sold one of our houses ... and another to be listed shortly. The updates she recommended for our house for sale were spot on and we had a full price offer the first day of listing!!!! She gets to know her clients and understands their needs and wants. She is knowledgeable and understands the market. Any advice she has given us has been "spot on". Lauren Davis
-Lauren DavisSeptember 18, 2013
THANK-YOU! I do believe our home sold fast due to your marketing plan, especially all the marketng you did BEFORE our home was officially on the market. We had 5 showings the first weekend and we sold with multiple offers. As you know, we interveiwed 3 agents before picking you and your presentation skills and market knowledge made us feel confident we could sell our home in a resonable time frame. Your attention to detail and honesty stood out, and we are glad we made the decision to hire you as our agent. We can refer you without hesitation to anyone who needs a quality Realtor in the Naperville area.
