Laura is extremely professional. As a professional woman myself, I am not easily impressed. Laura is very quick to respond to every request, phone call, email etc. She did exactly what she said she was going to do and often looked for creative ways to get what I wanted out of the purchase. Her knowledge of the Santa Clarita Valley is priceless. She knows what neighborhoods are most in demand and why, the different schools in the area and how they rank etc. This type of information was so valuable to me when looking for a home. At the time I was not familiar with the area and Laura's knowledge helped me make the best choice. I have and will continue to refer people to Laura.
Great Agent and Extremely Helpful. Five years was invested in helping my husband and I to find our ideal home when most realtors would probably have walked away from us. Because of our satisfaction of the service we received, we chose Laura to sell my mothers home when my mother passed away. I have and will continue to refer Laura Coffey to family and friends and will most definitely call on her for future property transactions.
Laura is the best, she is honest and has integrity. She will not just sell you a house to make money for herself, she goes beyond being just an agent, she is an example of what all real estate agents should strive for! She sold 2 homes for us and stuck it out and persevered through the sale of our last home. I will use her again and again and always refer her!
Laura helped us with our Short Sale and through out the whole time, she kept on task and did excatly what she said she would. She is very professional and very personal. At the end of my transcation, I was extremly happy Laura was our Realtor.
Working with Laura made me feel secure in any house I was interested in buying. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. I never felt pressured into any decision I didn't feel comfortable with. Laura was always concerned about my needs more then her own. She exceeded my expectations and I would definitely work with her in the future. I highly recommend Laura Coffey to anyone buying or selling a house.
Thank you for assisting with the doc signing last Wednesday. I'm glad you told us that a resale agent can assist in a new home purchase as long as you are there with us on the first visit. Please rescind all offers extended to the short sale properties. I always believe that your first home is not your dream home. That said, we plan to live in the property for at least 3 years then sell it and get a new home with a backyard. I hope that when the time comes, you will continue to be there for us.
I have to be honest with you, I consulted with another agent (he's been in the business for 4 years only) prior to us meeting. His information regarding "short sale" is so vague and that he strongly discourages anyone from pursuing such properties. He added that there is no guarantee that we will recover our money paid for deposit attached with the offer, especially when the lender decides to foreclose the home after submitting the offer. To us, it does not make any sense but we relied on that representation and considered him an authority with regards to certain real estate transactions.
Your view is completely opposite and favorable to us. I was not aware that you can put an offer without including a check for deposit (to open escrow). Simply put, escrow will not open unless there is acceptance, ultimately by the bank. The language you included "money will be deposited to the escrow account upon acceptance" is self explanatory. We were so impressed!Your experience and knowledge of the current market condition helped us overcome certain challenges in dealing with real estate transaction. Although we have decided not to pursue the "short sale" properties (Cory really like the property on Maplehurst Place), we have always kept you in mind. We are your customer for life!
We have recommended you to a very close friend who is deciding on selling a property in Victorville and buying a home closer to LA.
We both thank you so very much.
We really appreciated all your help and patience as our realtor. We are glad we found such a down-to-earth agent to help us get it done. Thanks again for the beautiful gift basket. Merry Christmas and New Year to you and your family.

To Whom it May Concern,
I have had the pleasure and good fortune to of had Laura Coffey represent me as my realtor three times in the past five years. The first was while I was going through an unpleasant divorce and selling my home in Valencia. My husband was in Florida throughout and most uncooperative initially, but Laura was so diplomatic and nonjudgmental with him she was able to instill confidence in him to be cooperative and work together to get through a stressful process with ease.The sale went smoothly with no unpleasant surprises..
The second time was selling my second home in Stevenson Ranch, which she had represented myself and my new husband in the purchase. Unfortunately, another unpleasant divorce. Laura again maintained a professional and courteous relationship with both of us through the transaction. Her ability to make things run fairly and smoothly during such difficult times is incredible.
I would definitely recommend Laura Coffey to handle any of your real estate needs but especially divorce related home sales. She has an uncanny way of getting along with people and skirting any possible problems that may arise. Please call me if you need any further information.
Hey Laura - I got your message yesterday. Just wanted to say Thank You for all of your persistant, consistant hard work. I think you are a great agent and will highly recommend you in the future to anyone who asks.
Sincerely, Doug Davis
I would just like to take a moment and thank you so much for the outstanding job you did for Elizabeth and I. This was our first home buying experience and I could not be happier with dedication and professionalism you executed in helping us find a home. As with any first time home buyer Elizabeth and I were truly in awe of how much goes into buying a home. Your ability and patience in guiding us through the process was a truly wonderful and pleasurable experience. Every step of the way you delivered on every one of your commitments to us and made sure every one of our questions was addressed.
I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful of experience you have made this process for both Elizabeth and I. Sharing our experience with friends I can assure you that your tireless efforts are abnormal and something we were incredibly fortunate to have. You not only treated us like a client, but a friend. We plan on buying more than one house in our lifetime, and look forward to continuing a lifelong real estate relationship with you.
Thank you so much for everything, Jason Abrahamson
I placed my house on the market in w/ a realtor that was recommended by a friend. After 6 mo. of very little interest in the house & even less contact w/ the realtor, I decided to change realtors; feeling totally dismayed w/ the service I had received. After a bad experience, I was very hesitant to use someone I did not know, but John assured me there would be no hard sell, so I agreed to meet W/ them. From the start, Laura & John were totally professional. They both showed detailed knowledge of the housing industry & genuine interest in doing whatever it took to sell my house. Throughout the process I was kept constantly updated on both the housing market & I received regular updates on any interest in the house. They even helped re-arrange furniture to make the house more presentable & went to my home to water the plants & take mail in when I was away - that is just an example of the commitment that Laura and John have for their clients.My house sold in a month from being listed w/ Laura & all I can say it that I have absolutely no reservations in recommending them to anyone. The techniques they use are impressive & get the job done, at no time during the process did I feel unhappy- The one regret I have is that I didn't meet Laura and John sooner! Best Wishes, Neil Harvey
You have a way of knowing just what people need, just when they need it the most. Thank you for everything you have done. Thank you for making the sale of our home a smooth process. We really appreciated all your hard work. Josh and I wish you well in the future. Take care,Josh & Teresa Hinrichs
This "letter of recommendation" is on behalf of Laura Coffey, who served as listing agent in the recent sale of my home in Van Nuys, California. Prior to the sale of my home, I researched/ interviewed six different possible agents, including Laura, to represent me in this process. Several of the other agents were offering discounted commissions, which made them all the more attractive. I was very concerned that I get the best agent possible, as I had been reading extensively recently in the media about the slowing real estate market, that was no longer a "seller's market". I decided to choose Laura. My initial impression of her was that she was professional, knowledgeable, personable, and organized. She also offered a fair commission, especially considering the extensive & impressive marketing plan that she would use. My choice proved to be the correct one. Laura took care of many details & responsibilities in a fast & efficient manner. Before the end of the first week, retrofitting & termite inspections were completed, it on the Internet w/ a virtual tour, a print ad was submitted, beautiful brochures were printed,& an open house was scheduled for the first weekend on the market.Imagine my delight, when, by the end of that first weekend, my home was in escrow, for over the list price, w/ great negotiated terms of the sale that fit my needs exactly. I wholeheartedly recommend Laura Coffey to anyone considering selling their home. Sincerely,David Beaston
We met Laura Coffey when we were looking for a place to rent in Santa Clarita; we were walking around the community & noticed an open house. She was really informative & answered our questions, even coming up w/ ideas that we hadn't thought of, like information on school districts. Laura is not pushy or bossy,she listens to you & shows you places that you want to see, not ones she thinks are good for you. She has a tremendous amount of patience. She was always there to answer our multiple questions & explained the process more times than I can count. Laura Coffey is very professional but friendly as well. She genuinely cares about making sure you are in the right house, that it meets all your needs. We will recommend her to anyone we know who wants to sell or buy a place. When we are ready to sell we are calling Laura. John Foster and Diana Graves
I can't say enough about Laura's dedication to client satisfaction. She found me the perfect home and made sure my transaction ran smoothly from beginning to end. I highly recommend her. Michael O'Brien
