At the office: Laura’s the Motivator who puts a Smile on everyone’s face.
On a personal note: "I have a Keen eye for detail and fashion fun."
Laura is often referred to as the "Brain Box" . With a BA in Psychology, she waltzed out of college with a degree in one hand, a Phi Beta Kappa key in the other, and an extreme enthusiasm to hit the ground running!
A career in her family’s Washington, DC area jewelry business was her first stop before opening her own clothing and accessories store. Retailing gave Laura insight and background in dealing with people, negotiations, and customer satisfaction. But the four walls of a store confined her, and finding a career that opened doors led to a very obvious choice–Real Estate.
Licensed as an Associate Broker in Maryland and working with Long and Foster and then RE/MAX Realty Group, each year Laura achieved outstanding results, which were noted by the company she was with. She earned the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation. Less than 4% of the agents nationally have this, and she earned the GRI (Graduate, Realtors Institute) Degree in 2000. This is awarded to less than 10% of Realtors nationwide. Additionally, she has earned the designation of Certified Buyer Representative and is e-PRO Certified by the National Association of Realtors, indicating an achievement in using the Internet for real estate transactions. This year, to keep up with the market, Laura earned the designation Certified Distressed Property Expert®.
Laura has also served as the Treasurer of the Women's Council of Realtors for the Greater Capital Area and sat on the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors Grievance Committee for 2 years, and is now a member of the Women's Council of Realtors of the Greater Palm Beaches. Always attending seminars and classes, Laura stays abreast of what’s happening in the industry. "I really enjoy these opportunities not only to learn, but to network with the rest of the Real Estate Community in a very meaningful way."
A frequent attendee at the national Star Power Conference, Laura has connected with REALTORS® throughout the country and Canada, providing a huge network of competent agents to refer to in other areas. With her sense of humor and patience, she brings warmth and caring to the real estate transaction.
Laura’s enthusiasm, extreme energy, resourcefulness and positive outlook dominate all phases of her life. Her mind is always working, whether it’s during quiet time with her husband of 33 years, Stan, shopping to decorate their Wellington home, reading a good book, or whizzing through a crossword or sudoku puzzle. "I really believe in building wealth through real estate. Our daughters were never permitted to rent–they learned early to buy." Whether it’s selling or buying, if you have the will, Laura will help you find the way!
I have to share an incredible testimonial with all of you... There is no other realtor in Palm Beach County that anyone in their right mind should ever use except Ms. Laura Jaffe. Jay and I have bought and sold our share of properties over the years. I can honestly say we have NEVER received such personal care from a realtor as we received from Laura with our condo transaction. Her knowledge was far beyond that of any of our previous realtors. The time she put in was incredible. Before closing, she fought for every penny for us on the HUD up until the minute before closing. During closing, she was extremely engaged and represented us on every point. If you haven’t experienced it, a short sale can be a nightmare. Luckily we had Laura who is so well educated on short sale procedures it makes her qualifications far beyond most realtors in the industry today. We found ourselves having to rely on her knowledge to get us through the short sale process. If she hadn’t educated herself, Jay and I could have lost a lot of money. Believe it or not, we still have some unresolved issues after the closing. Laura is STILL right by our side and continues to represent us. Do you know of any realtor that would do that? I know I have never experienced that. Need a realtor? Trust me…there’s only one realtor you should ever think of using. Thank you, Thank you Laura for getting my daughter her first property!!!
"When Laura was working up in the MD Suburbs of DC I had the pleasure of knowing her through a number of Realtor groups and marketing groups. She is always personable, considerate, thoughtful and competent with lots of great ideas and a wonderful sense of humor. I was really sorry to see her move to Florida and a little jealous since I'm not a big fan of cold weather myself."
Ken Montville Realtor Extraordinare , RE/MAX Sails,Inc.
"Laura is a honest professional who cares about her clients first. I don't think you can ask for anything more. If you can she will provide it."
John Burley Mortgage Broker , Choice Finance
"Laura was my real estate agent for my very first home. She did an excellent job at educating me about the real estate market, the process for purchasing a home and coaching me in writing the offer. Laura has high energy and her optimism during the process made it very enjoyable. I would hire Laura in a heartbeat to assist in my next home purchase."
