We have enjoyed almost a 20 year relationship with Laura, with her representation on more than 10 transactions both buying and selling. She possesses a unique skill set that makes her an outstanding agent. Laura knows the market intimately even properties that are not listed. She possesses incredible resources whether you need an architect, builder, painter, etc. Her experience and creativity allow her to figure out how to get the deal done whether you are a buyer or seller. But above all is her integrity and her ability to provide honest, unbiased advice, and her word is her bond.

Laura Gottesman is not only one of the best luxury realtors I’ve ever met but she is also one of the most generous people that I know. Laura is a critical member of our Elite 25’s Advisor Board and has always been there for us whether we needed her expertise, her experience or just her advice to make things better for all of Elite 25’s membership. Knowing Laura is just a phone call away for questions is just so comforting and when you meet her, it quickly becomes very obvious why Laura remains one Austin’s most sought after luxury realtors at the very top of their game.

It goes without saying, Laura is one of the best. I love how she speaks so highly of so many people in her business. Her calmness and confidence instills such trust which makes buying and selling not just an easy experience, but so enjoyable.

Laura Gottesman offers a tailored and comprehensive service that far out-performs any we have had in the past. After listening to our needs, she provided an efficient and successful home search. She is a strong negotiator and managed a complicated transaction with intelligence. Beyond this, Laura helped us find the right schools for our children and service providers for our house. She is a true Austinite and loves helping people find a home here.

We have worked with Laura on a number of buy-side and sell-side transactions over the years. She knows the Austin market better than anyone, and has given us really good advice. Laura has her finger on the pulse of the market. She’s also a deal closer, which is especially valued in complicated transactions.
