My Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

“Laura was an excellent choice when listing and selling our rental property in Woodbridge. She was very knowledgeable, answered our questions and gave great tips to make our rental more marketable. The house was listed and we chose our buyer within 4 days! I would recommend Laura to anyone that is looking for buyers or sellers looking for results.”
“Laura has helped us with 3 homes now and has never disappointed. We always understood where things were at and what was happening through each step of the process. Her knowledge, energy and marketing helped to ensure that we not only set our price correctly but also got the best price possible for our home. When we purchased our current home Laura worked closely with us to ensure that we were getting the things in the home, the location and the size that were most important to our family. We had a very specific area we were interested in and Laura was able to locate a variety options that kept us in our price range and had the things that were most important to our family. We were even able to consult with her after we had purchased the house and had additional questions. It’s comforting to know that we have a resource like Laura that’s always just a phone call away.”
Laura came highly recommended to us by friends who were extremely satisfied with her services. Her experience and knowledge, particularly in the complex area of short sales, was invaluable. Not only did she provide support to us, her clients, but also to the listing agent who was unfamiliar with the short sale process. Her hard work and dedication resulted in a smooth and timely purchase. We have no doubt that without her willingness to place our needs foremost in all situations, we would not have the beautiful house we now call home.
Laura is professional and very prepared. We strongly believe we would not be in our home if it were not for Laura. We were actively seeking short sales/foreclosure opportunities. Our offer was registered with the seller, and we were the first and successful offer on a property with 10 offers in less than a day. Her knowledge of the industry is superior. I would highly recommend her to family and friends. Thank you Laura for getting our home for us! You are the BEST!
My husband, Chris, and I were out house hunting when we met Laura at an open house. She was very welcoming and helpful as we toured the house. She answered our many questions and let us take our time walking around. As we left, she wished us a nice day. We continued our house search the following weekend, but decided that we needed to enlist the help of a realtor. After going to numerous open houses and meeting a wide range of realtors, we decided to go back to the house where we met Laura. We felt that Laura would be great to work with and we were right! Laura asked us some general questions to get an idea of what we were looking for and where we wanted to look. Between our own searches and Laura’s, we came up with an almost identical list of houses to start looking at. After the first few houses, Laura seemed to know what we liked, what we didn’t like, and where to take us next. We must have looked at 20 plus houses and we had a blast looking at each one. With Laura’s help, we found the perfect house and she helped us get it even with 4 other offers on it. Laura’s knowledge and expertise helped us not only find a house, but actually enjoy house hunting.
It was a pleasure working with Laura. Purchasing a house is a major investment and one of the most difficult processes to endure. Laura made it easy because of her vast experience and knowledge in the real estate business. What I enjoyed most about Laura was her easy going personality and good natured spirit. She always made us feel comfortable and she took the extra effort to check up on us to make sure all our questions were answered.
Laura was professional and knowledgeable and available to us at all times and phases of our sale. We felt like she really listened to our needs. We felt like our sale really mattered to her. She helped stage our home. She helped price our home. She publicized and listed our home in the most favorable manner.
We have had the privilege of working with Laura on both the sale of a home and the purchase/construction of a new home. Laura is passionate about finding people a home… not just an address. She made sure we got top dollar on the sale of our townhome so we could afford the upgrades we wanted in our newly built home. Now that our family has grown again, we are working with her to find our next dream home and although we have some fairly unusual criteria, Laura is patient and diligent in helping us with our search. Simply put: we know, without a doubt, that our family is in good hands with Laura!
Laura was recommended to me by one of her clients and am so grateful. Laura is a true professional. She knows the local area and made a wonderful recommendation for my family. We are so pleased with Laura’s thoroughness and follow up. We have recommended Laura to our friends and when it comes time for us to move again, we will once again call on Laura Mugnolo.
Laura made what we were told was an “impossible” sale, possible. We called Laura when the sale of our house fell through AT the settlement table. All parties involved assured us that the “problem” was nearly impossible to remedy without approximately $45,000. I called Laura hoping with all her years in business she could help. Laura made it happen. She took on the challenge, made numerous phone calls to colleagues searching for a solution and spent hours on the phone with us (we were located out of state). She went above and beyond and found a totally legal and moral way to make the sale happen! It only cost us an additional $500. A far cry from the $45,000 we were told. She is professional, kind, caring and ethical. In all of our real estate transactions Laura is BY far the best agent I have ever worked with.
