Will Edwards Santa Monica, Palo Alto and Cabo San Lucas
"I wanted to take a moment a send you a note of sincere thanks for helping us purchase our home in Santa Monica. Over the years I have purchased a number of properties around the world and this is the first time I've written a 'thank you' to my agent.
This purchase was special to me as we were looking for our son's first property.
Not only were you helpful with the location of a property that fit our needs, you were thoughtful and professional throughout from the negotiations right through to closing. Your attention to detail was unmatched in any prior experience and we deeply appreciated your involvement at every level of our purchase.
Please feel free to use us as an unconditional recommendation for your services to any potential client who requires a personal reference."
Dr. Murray Rosenthal Santa Monica, La Jolla, Panama and Fiji
"As a real estate developer, I deal with dozens of real estate agents, but I chose Laura because I felt I could trust her to look out for my best interests. I was right; she took care of all the details big and small, every step of the way. She is a smart negotiator who has high standards and ethics. She is a thoughtful and methodical problem solver as well as being a sweet person to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to maximize their home sale potential."
Alon Redko, Redko Corp
""Paying homage" may seem like an extreme phrase to employ when praising a real estate agent, but in fact, my wife and I feel Laura is more than deserving of such accolades. Laura combines all of the essential elements of a superior sales person: she is patient, enthusiastic, intelligent, direct and highly skilled. However, Laura also brings one other rather unique characteristic to the table – she truly cares. Laura’s involvement and sincerity are positively undeniable and make a world of difference. She went out of her way at every opportunity to ensure that our process of property searching and acquisition flowed smoothly. We will undoubtedly continue to purchase and invest with Laura."
Matthew Bennett Pacific Palisades
"Laura was amazing selling our property. Even though it was less expensive than most properties she usually sells, she treated us as if we were multi-millionaires selling an estate. Ours was not an easy sale but Laura remained calm, gracious and optimistic throughout the long and challenging process. We wish we had more properties to sell as we will miss having her in our lives. She’s one of the great realtors and it was our good fortune to work with her."
Stu and Adrienne Kirschner Sherman Oaks
"As a commercial mortgage broker I work with real estate agents all the time but was extremely impressed with how professional Laura was - she is also a good consultant and therapist. It was a pleasure working with her for my own personal home purchase and I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home."

Developers of Roxbury Place
I am a real estate agent representing buyers at your Roxbury Place development. I wanted to let you know that your listing agent, Laura Kalb, has made the experience of buying at Roxbury Place an extraordinarily good one both for my clients and me. Laura is incredibly knowledgeable about the details of your building as well as the details of the individual condominiums and all of the amenities they offer. She has been extraordinarily helpful with providing information, researching questions, assembling paperwork and accommodating showings, and all within a timely manner. She has performed all of these duties, thus far, with a smile on her face and a friendly and helpful attitude. While, as a client, you may automatically expect this behavior from your listing agent, but in my experience, it is rare to find. Having represented new-home buyers in other brand new developer-built condominiums as well as having listed three developer projects myself, I have had enough experience to be able to say that Laura Kalb is doing a wonderful job representing your project while also making you, as developer, look good at the same time. So often, I find myself wanting to write to sellers to let them know how badly they are being represented but never do because I don’t think it’s appropriate. Since this has been such a nice experience and because Laura has been so professional and gone above and beyond to make the experience a good one, I thought you’d want to know. Not only does her professional and friendly demeanor help to sell your condos but her attitude and words also work to convey that you care about the quality of your product and you care about your buyers. This is invaluable."
Thomas Mann, Keller Williams, Westside
"Thank you for your insight, thoroughness and for always being there every step of the way when it came to finding our new home. We never felt pressured to buy and we always knew you had our best interest at heart and for that we are so grateful. When we first started looking you said to me "we'll find you a house for your new baby." Well, we did - the exact day we closed escrow, he was born! You made every step of the way fun and it was truly a joy working with you. You're a class act, thank you so much!"
David and Jenn Fleming Westwood
"Thank you for selling our home and for being such a "calming" influence for us during the process."
Jane and Cathy Corns Beverly Hills
"Laura Kalb represented my family on the purchase of two homes, and I’m so happy to call her my real estate agent. She is incredibly loyal, patient, professional and detailed. I never felt pressured into making any decisions, and any time I had a question, Laura was there to answer it for me. She made the purchase of both homes seamless. We spent quite a long time — years -- checking out properties until the perfect homes came on the market and Laura was by my side the whole way. She really is an asset."
Dusty Fleming, Beverly Hills
""This deal would not have closed without your calm presence, absolute professionalism and amazing attitude.""
Jill Reeder Coldwell Banker, Malibu Colony
"To say that Laura is an excellent real estate agent is a huge understatement of her true being. Laura is an amazing professional with razor sharp business skills and gentle tenacity. She has the rare ability to be persistent , aggressive, patient and thoughtful all at the same moment. I saw one of Laura’s listings on Social Media and reached out to her to discuss my interests. Laura found me the home that I had dreamed of for years. The home had been listed for three days and had multiple offers. Her ability to work with the listing broker and negotiate the transaction with finesse and strength enabled me to buy the house. Her attention to detail throughout the escrow made for the smoothest real estate transaction I have been involved with over the past 30 years.
I would highly recommend Laura to anyone who expects excellence and professionalism."

Subject: Brentwood sale
It is a pleasure to write this letter to thank you, your company and our agent extraordinaire, Ms. Laura Kalb, for selling our condominium in Brentwood last month.
By any measure, Laura is the most outstanding real estate agent Martin and I have ever met.
For the first time, our real estate experience was positive and smooth.
Laura kept us informed and confident throughout the entire process. We are truly grateful for her guidance, knowledge and thoroughness. She was on top of every detail. When we had any concerns, she always handled them promptly and with ease.
Laura went above and beyond for us. Her professionalism and expertise in getting the condo ready for sale, preparing an effective marketing plan with beautiful pictures, assisting us with inspections and work details, holding several successful open houses and, most impressive, her keen negotiating skills showed us what first rate service is.
Thank you so much for making this possible for us, Rick. We were not only satisfied, but proud to have your team at Hilton & Hyland representing us in this sale and without hesitation we will call on you for any future real estate needs.
My very best wishes to you and Kathy and the family for a wonderful new year.
Christi De Clercq"
