Kelly & Laura’s approach to real estate is simple – give your clients the kind of service you would expect to receive yourself. Being that Kelly & Laura have very high standards that means you will receive only the best service available.
We both know that buying and/or selling your home is one of the largest financial and emotional decisions you will make, so we strive to make sure you understand all avenues of the transaction thus making it an easier transition. Good communication with our clients is key as well as thorough follow through that goes all the way to the end of escrow!
Kelly & Laura strive to customize their proven systems to each seller and buyer. We have found that not one system works for each client. We sit down and go over what is important to each person, whether you are a buyer or seller, or both, and work hard to make this important transaction an enjoyable process.

Kelly & Laura are sisters and business partners. We have been working together since 1996. 1996 – 1999, we opened our own paint your own pottery studios, “Come Out & Clay” in Norwalk, CT and Mamaroneck, NY. They were two of the top producing pottery studios in their day, according to our suppliers. We sold those and moved back to ‘ever-sunny’ Redondo Beach, California – where we both had lived since high school days. (We are both “Spartans” South High graduates.) Prior to that we grew up as young children on the “Main-Line” of Philadelphia.
Laura attended UCSB and earned a degree in Business Economics while Kelly attended San Diego State earning a Speech Communication degree and then attending Design Institute of San Diego earning an Interior Design Degree.
Kelly is married and has 2 girls (14) and (10). Laura has 2 boys – (18) and (12). We both live, work and play in the Hollywood Riviera. Our kids attend the local schools. We love it here! We both feel so lucky to wake up here everyday. It really is a wonderful community!
We both started our real estate careers in 2000. Working first as Coldwell Banker agents in Malaga Cove office, which is in Palos Verdes Estates. We were named “Rookies of the Year” our first year in business. We work well with each other and love real estate!! We both have different strengths and offer each other lots of moral support – which is important to our clients as well. Everyone needs moral support when they are working through a real estate transaction – whether as a buyer or seller! In 2003, we moved to Re/Max Estate Properties in Palos Verdes and we have really enjoyed our fruitful years there. We were honored to be in the Platinum Club each year there and even more honored to join the elite Chairman’s Circle for year 2007/2012 & Hall of Fame in 2008. We are both very hardworking, but really enjoy what we do and think it shows. We laugh a lot and most people find that very contagious…another good thing when working through a real estate transaction – a good sense of humor!!
We search until we find the perfect property, combing not only what is ON the market, but also Off-Market properties, then we help negotiate the best possible deal for you. We like to make sure you understand the comps before making any offers on a property and work closely with you through the inspection phase. Nothing satisfies us more than seeing the smiles that come with a successful home-purchase of a lifetime.
First of all, we customize a plan for each of our clients. Often, helping our sellers “FLIP” their own homes to help them keep and make the most of their equity. We promote your home to the widest possible audience to attain the highest possible price for your home. Laura & Kelly are Accredited Staging® Professionals. We’ve found that the way you live in your home and the way we sell your house are two different things. Your Staged house will have an edge in the market, making it sell faster and for Top Dollar! Your home does not go on the market until all phases of the marketing plan are complete – including a comprehensive online marketing presence. Buyers are going to see your home in its best light the minute it hits the market. There is a huge correlation between those first 3 weeks on the market and achieving the highest price. Everything must be ready to go that first day! Another one of our main goals is to make you so happy that you worked with us, you will refer us to all of your friends and family!
