Laura Shnitzer

Laura Shnitzer has been helping people buy and sell real estate in the Los Angeles area for over thirteen years. With a wide range of knowledge, experience and expertise in the Los Angeles market, Laura brings integrity, outstanding service and expert negotiating skills to both her clients and her transactions and she can guide you through the real estate process with confidence and ease.

Although she specializes in the Hollywood Hills and West Hollywood areas, Laura has sold real estate from downtown Los Angeles to the beach and has represented both buyers and sellers throughout the course of her career. As a realtor, Laura has vast experience in all realms of the real estate business including the residential market, the condo market as well as the investment market. She also knows first-hand what her clients experience when buying or selling real estate because she has bought, sold and rehabbed property herself. She says, “I can relate to my clients because I’ve been there myself and whether you’re buying or selling, this process can be very stressful. I like to minimize the stress and help people achieve their goals and dreams.”

Outstanding service, integrity and experience are certainly key elements that Laura brings to all of her clients, but community and giving back are also the cornerstone of her philosophy and business. Laura loves where she lives and she lives where she works. She notes, “I love my neighborhood, a small character-filled pocket in the heart of Los Angeles, close to the hills. It’s a great dog walking neighborhood where wonderful period architecture is abundant and everyone knows their neighbors. There’s a real feeling of community that is often absent in a major urban setting. Our city and our communities offer an abundance of creativity, great architecture and diversity”. Laura thrives on knowing what her clients want and getting it for them and loves living and working in Los Angeles.

Laura is also a sustainability designer and has developed a handbag line which uses upcycled pet food bags and other reclaimed fabrics and materials to make unique handbags and accessories. “I am inspired by innovative design and care a great deal about the environment," says Laura. Her mission with her creative work is to help the planet and animals in need through sustainable, innovative design.
