We can not express how much value was generated working with our two transactions taken care of by the professionals at KRE + Associates. Laura and Tracy were the best we have worked with in 45 years of buying houses. Thank you for helping us during the pandemic, fires and an election Year......best experience ever!
I cannot say enough good things about Laura Klein! Her patience, knowledge of the area and overall demeanor make working with her so enjoyable. After nearly two years of searching to find my perfect home - because let's be honest, I was very particular in what I wanted - she made the entire processes pleasant! With the competitive nature of home buying in Los Angeles, Laura provided great guidance to ensure my offer stood out and ultimately helped get me my dream frist home. All and all, for my first home buying experience, I am so glad Laura was there by my side through it all. If you are looking for someone who can help you effortlessly navigate the good and the bad that inevitably comes with the process, you must work with Laura!
I recently had the pleasure of working with KRE & Associates to sell my home in Pacific Palisades. I have bought and sold homes in New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco but have never experienced a realtor concierge experience such as the service that was provided by Laura Klein and Tracy Williams. They each provided leadership, guidance, expert opinion and service support throughout my entire experience from our first interview and meeting until my final documents were completed. It was such a true pleasure to work with such expert professionals who really love and enjoy their work. Their passion and gift for service was evident at every step of the process. I am so pleased and happy to say that this was the best customer service experience that I have ever had in seven decades. KRE made the whole sales process fast, efficient and stress free for me. Their in-depth knowledge of their local markets positions them to quickly advise their clients and move the sales process forward. I really appreciated how they were always anticipating next steps and preparing me for what I needed to do. My house sold quickly and seamlessly to wonderful buyers. I could not have hoped for a better experience.
"Laura is a wonderful real estate professional to work with. In addition to getting us in first to see the property, she developed a winning strategy to help us obtain our dream home, while in a competitive bid situation. Thank you Laura! "
"It really was our privilege to have Laura and Tracy represent us. We were not able to sell our home the first time we listed for about 3 mths. 3 weeks after listing our home a second time with Laura and Tracy we went into escrow. They were very professional and always gave us all our options in as fair and unbiased a manner as possible ALWAYS fighting for us no question. They do SO MUCH behind the scenes and it shows. Laura and Tracy take the term "full-service concierge" to a whole new level. They brought their own bedding pillows table mats and filled the gaps wherever was needed. Since they were our neighbors they had the hyper-local knowledge along with years upon years of experience to draw precedent on both of which we found critical for our sale in this very unique market and season of the Highlands. They were super responsive and fully answered all of our questions patiently. Most of all they didn't just "win" for us they were our very own personal cheerleaders and trail guides as we made it to the finish line!"

"Laura Klein and KRE + Associates was an extraordinary associate to sell our home in Malibu! This was a high-end achievement and the results were spectacular! Laura is a genuine person that guides her clients with care understanding smarts and commitment. We would not have achieved our selling goals without her and with her we exceeded our hopes!She is a GEM!!!!"

"Laura was there for me with help and advice every step of the way. I couldn't have done it without her."
"I was in need of a realtor to sell my West Hollywood property. I interviewed a few realtors but once I met Laura I knew she was the one. First off she showed up on time with comps of properties. She also had everything ready for me to sign not knowing if I would sign as it was just an interview. Her team went to work immediately. Listing with several different real estate sites. making the color brochures. She also sent me a time line calendar of when we would have open houses possible proposed offers inspection dates sign and closing dates which was super helpful. Her team handled many problems that came up with sale and went over and above to make sure everything was in order. She is an amazing realtor with a wealth of knowledge!"
"I have bought and sold real estate in several of the most competitive markets in the U.S. -- San Francisco Washington D.C. Austin Denver and now Los Angeles -- and while I've had very experienced and effective real estate brokers in those transactions Laura is at a level above them all. This summer my efforts to buy a luxury condominium in Brentwood were complicated by the fact that I needed to sell a Colorado home at the same time. The time pressures and logistics were complicated. Fortunately I had an ace up my sleeve -- the expertise work ethic and compassion of Laura Klein. At every step of the process she not only was on top of every detail but also provided an extraordinary degree of personal attention. I couldn't be more pleased with Laura's work and plan to recommend her to everyone I know in the greater Los Angeles area."
"My experience with both Laura Klein and her team was exceptional. This was my first time as a homeowner and I was nervous but also exited. After going to a few open houses I was left feeling discouraged; the properties and the agents representing them didn't feel like a good fit. The moment I met both Laura and her team everything began to fall into place. Laura helped me envision what my life would be like in my potential home and immediately made me feel that this was where I belong. From my loan approvals to escrow and closing Laura made this first time process seamless. I'm so grateful for not only Laura's efficiency but her honesty. I owe Laura and her team more than just a "thank you" but I'm so happy to have found my house I now call home and grateful to have established a wonderful friendship with Laura and her team."
"I almost went with a different realtor but made a decision to work with Laura Klein after watching her successfully sell multiple townhomes in my neighborhood of Palisades Highlands. Best decision I could have made! She was with me every step of the way educating me on what to expect and what needed to be done and along with Tracy made the process of selling my townhome almost stress-free! She found a great buyer within the first few days on the market and the transaction went through very smoothly. I recommend Laura Klein to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and caring professional realtor!"
"I can't say enough about how pleased I am with the sale of my townhouse in Pacific Palisades. Not only did it sell for above the asking price but it sold so quickly that it really was amazing. Laura Klein handled everything and explained the process every step of the way. I had lived in my home for more than 30 years and was somewhat apprehensive but I needn't have worried. Laura and her staff took care of every detail from showing it to seeing it through escrow without a hitch. I am so grateful for a wonderful experience with a process that can be fraught with trauma. I highly recommend Laura Klein for buying or selling real estate."
"Laura Klein and her team handled every aspect of our sale with impeccable care and sensitivity. They are smart highly professional extremely knowledgeable and kind. We can't imagine ever doing another real estate transaction without them!"

"We had the pleasure of working with Laura to purchase a home in pacific palisades and then also used her to rent out that same home. Laura did a great job during both transactions - the was responsive professional and thorough. As a result both transactions went very smoothly. We definitely would recommend her and plan to use her again if the opportunity arises."

"If you are looking for a real estate company that has your best interests at heart and is motivated to make your buying and selling of homes a smooth lucrative and pleasant experience than look no further than Klein Real Estate. A family-owned business with rock solid integrity decades of combined property experience and a true desire to see their clients satisfied and happy Klein Real Estate is a five-star top-drawer service-oriented and results-driven operation. We have bought and sold three times with Laura and Larry Klein and they have our unreserved and unequivocal recommendation."
"We were very impressed with the work of Laura and Larry on our behalf when selling the family house. They brought a great deal of knowledge and enthusiasm to the process. They were industrious and took on tasks that we out-of-town sellers couldn't. They lived up to their commitments and were very friendly and responsive. They found good people to assist in the process (for home repairs staging inspections) and kept things moving swiftly. We have no doubt that we picked the right agents to help us with the sale and are very happy to highly recommend Laura and Larry."
"Laura and Larry were both very knowledgeable and helpful. Both went beyond expectations with our sale. In addition to being very easy to work with they suggested a sale price well above all the "Most Experienced" and "Highest Sales" brokers with whom we spoke. Our NET was higher than all of these "Best in the Palisades" brokers suggested LIST price. So they provided the BEST results in a very short period of time and were very easy to work with. What more can you ask for?"
"When we decided to sell our home we immediately thought about Klein Real Estate. We didn't know anything about them other than we were very impressed by their monthly flier. Other agents simply mailed single 5Ã—7 flyers with minimal information. The Klein's flyer amounted to an 8 x 12 mini-newsletter with general Real Estate news and specific stats on our local area.On our first meeting we were impressed by Laura and Larry's knowledge of both the local area and what it would take to maximize our list price and sell quickly. Laura has a great design flair and she and Larry know the whole R.E. game and how to get things done. As a team they organized a detailed plan that at first seemed a bit ambitious but we decided to follow their guidance and were very glad we did. In the following 10 days we had 6 firm offers and settled for an offer far over list price. We don't feel the list price was set too low but instead reflected Laura's design vision and a really fantastic job of staging the home. Looking at the online pictures we really couldn't believe we ever lived in that place! Escrow closed in 9 days!Not only did they guide us in the process fixing-up and selling our home but they have also helped guide us in purchasing a new home over 60 miles inland. Not only did they negotiate a great deal for us but I know for a fact they saved me thousands of dollars that I would have otherwise been willing to spend. They also helped guide us through the process of getting a mortgage and helping with repairs on the new place.Bottomline is that these are two skilled professions who always made us feel supported and cared about. And that is not an easy chore in the Real Estate business. All this and in addition they are friendly likable and fun people. We truly appreciate all they've done to assist us.They have a standing invite to come over for a barbeque and swim any time they're in the I.E."

"I didn't really believe that I could have a home I loved in LA as a single person- the prices the competition the stress of finding a place, then I met Laura Klein. I truly got what having an advocate feels like from finding multiple homes that I loved immediately to negotiating for the win over nine other offers to ensure that I understood CA real estate laws and what my condo fees truly included. If you want someone who is smart responsive and caring as you search for and buy a house that's definitely Laura Klein. I am now so happy and peaceful in my new home close to work at the beach. Give her a chance & you won't be disappointed."
Dr. Amy Waterman
"Laura and Larry Klein did a first class job of representing and selling my house. They had ideas for small improvements that made the house show its best. They were a cohesive team. When we reached the stage of counter offers and needed to do detailed repairs the Klein's had their own team of specialist contractors that promptly made repairs at competitive prices. This kept a short escrow on track. I thought the whole sales process went very smoothly thanks to Laura and Larry's hard work. You couldn't ask for more attentive or responsive brokers. It would be a pleasure to work with them again."
"I want to thank Laura Klein and Klein Real Estate for the amazing experience I had when she and her company recently sold my property in Los Angeles. She is honest a great communicator and knowledgable in her craft. It's easy to see how much she loves her chosen profession. She gives 110% at all times. Laura was able to get our full asking price of $1650000 for our income property! I would highly recommend her and Klein Real Estate for anyone buying or selling a home in Los Angeles. Thank you!!"
"We are extremely pleased with the recent sale of our house. Klein Real Estate handled every aspect of the transaction from guidance on property preparation to extensive marketing and advertising to quickly locating a highly qualified buyer and guiding the escrow process to a successful conclusion. They exceeded all of our expectations. We would highly recommend Larry Esther and Laura to anyone considering selling their home."
Jerry and Arlene Jones
"The Klein Real Estate Team helped me to be in escrow within a little over the first week of being on the market. Laura Klein's expertise in getting the property ready for viewing was spot on and a huge help. I'm currently looking and working with her on making a purchase. She is very knowledgable and is eager to learn how she can make you happy in your purchase or sell. She looks out for your best interests and does not make you feel like just a another client. Laura and Larry are a great team. They have the perfect balance in expertise to help you get your goal. I've already have been recommending them to my friends that need a GREAT realtor."
Bonnie & Robert Farag
"We rented an apartment from Larry for 2 years before deciding to buy a house. Since our rental experience went so well we chose to use the Klein team to purchase a house and it was a great decision. Larry and Laura answered all our questions and really made the process smooth dealing with our lender and escrow agents. Since we were first time home buyers this was all new so we needed the help getting through escrow. We especially appreciated how after we'd tour an open house on the weekend and show interest Larry would go tour the property and give us more detailed feedback about things we probably didn't think to look at while at the property. All in all it was a great experience and when the time comes to sell we'll be calling Larry and Laura."
Alex Mohr & Blair Dyer
"Klein Real Estate is a family-owned business that puts its clients first. The Team are Los Angeles locals and know their territory inside and out. Larry Klein is a Master Contractor so he can tell you that your future house is sound as well as what work it may need or how you might improve it. All of the Team is very responsive. If something needs to be filed or a signature is needed they are on it. Laura Klein is a "stager extraordinaire." She will tell you how to present your home when it is time to put it on the market and it will be SOLD. She is polite yet firm because she knows whereof she speaks. She is marvelous. We have sold two properties and purchased two properties and would never think of using anyone else."

"Being given the daunting responsibility of handling my mother's Estate and selling her condominium along the Wilshire Corridor I am so pleased I chose Larry and Laura Klein to handle the renovation and sale of my mom's home. Not being experienced with real estate transactions their advice guidance organization and efficiency of the renovation construction and sale details were impeccable. They eased my burden immensely and I will be forever grateful."
"As the financial representative for the Amado family it was my role to work with Larry and Laura Klein through every stage of the listing renovation staging and sale process. It was a true joy to work with Klein Real Estate team. An amazing transformation was accomplished quickly and within budget. The sale was a complete success! Their expertise and advice was impeccable."
"Buying a home is fun. But not when you discover issues during your inspection period and have to cancel a contract. And not when you get stuck in a bidding war. And it's definitely not fun when the seller's escrow company messes up the paperwork. All of these things happened to us on our home-buying journey and Laura and Larry helped us through it all. Despite the setbacks they were enthusiastic and responsive â€“ often going above and beyond to compensate for other parties who weren't doing their jobs. And when we finally got to the closing table they were right there with us checking all the paperwork before we signed. From tough negotiations to financial questions to legal stuff they got it done and we got an amazing beautiful home that we love! We would recommend them without reservation."

"Klein Real Estate sold my condo in Santa Monica for a price that I never thought I could get. I am a retired lawyer with some good sense about what an elegant home should be like but I didn't know the first thing about how to go about refurbishing my condo from its 1970s features and look. My tastes are the classic designs and furniture. Before hiring a realtor I researched by going to open houses of condos and saw that they were staged in the latest tastes not at all like my classic and antique-heavy decor. I also I needed to make upgrades to get the top price for my home.Laura Klein went to work and came up with wise suggestions. How lucky I was to have her! At first I was a little resistant but I soon realized how expert she was. She not only found the fixtures I needed (personally going to the stores) such as the three elegant bathroom marble cabinets and mirrors and a quartz counter for the kitchen she also advised me on the changes we needed for decoration and achieved the perfect modern decor. She introduced me to a stager who was brilliant as well as charming. Between these two ladies I willingly and wisely succumbed to their expertise and recommendations. As a lawyer I knew you don't win a trial without the best experts as your witnesses. Her father Larry Klein a licensed contractor as well as a broker directed his handymen in the installations and upgrades. His charges were reasonable and below what I would have paid others.What happened was over 200 people came to the three open houses and there was a bidding war. I sold my home for $315000 over the list price! I believe it was a record for my size condo and its location $1034 per square foot. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending hiring Klein Real Estate in a heartbeat!"
"Having purchased our dream home we then needed to sell our condo. I admit I was dreading it. Keeping a house clean enough for showings when you have a toddler and a dog is next to impossible. Laura reassured us that with her strategy our home wouldn't be on the market long. She had her handyman fix a few things then had it professionally photographed and advertised. After one week of showings and an open house we received 9 offers. Our home ultimately sold for $36000 OVER list price! Laura and Larry were in touch with us constantly and on top of everything â€“ from paperwork to price negotiations to making sure the appraiser had the most relevant neighborhood comps they made sure that we got the highest possible price for our condo and sold it FAST. We would recommend them without reservation."

"I had the pleasure of working with Laura Klein recently who sold my condo. She is very meticulous strategic articulate and available. She was absolutely correct in every piece of advice offered- from staging pricing what to fix (and what not to) negotiations all leading to a quick sale at a great price and a smooth escrow! Not to mention her photos and marketing are top-notch. I could not recommend Laura highly enough. I've worked with many agents in the past and she is by far the best!"
I have always been impressed with the Klein Real Estate team. They are extremely savvy in the world of real estate and have put me at ease with their professionalism and courteous manner. Laura Larry and Esther stuck with me until I found my dream condo that was both affordable and in an area that I love and when it was time for me to move on and sell my home; they sold my property quickly at the asking price and to a very qualified buyer. Laura Larry and Esther are true experts in the field of real estate!
"Laura and Larry are simply the best; Honest dedicated and provide superior customer service. They call it like they see it and make things happen. They stepped in and helped us get the house ready for sale in no time and got our home sold for a premium price. Larry and Laura called it right and knew what we should ask for the property. They know the market and how to identify real buyers. As with all transactions things come up. Larry and Laura were there to save the day and make the sale happen on time. They were also there to help with our purchase and responded quickly to our requests for support. You will not find a better team with the experience and resources necessary to sell your home or help you purchase a house than Laura and Larry at Klein Real Estate. You can trust these two professionals which I do not say lightly. I call it 'old school' integrity and hard work that you do not see much of these days in any business. Go with Klein Real Estate! You will not be sorry."
Tom and Carolyn
"I just completed a sale of my home with the excellent guidance of Klein Real Estate. Because I live in London I had some concerns about being so far away during the key parts of the process. Laura Larry and Esther were smart very professional and honest listened to what I wanted always accessible and made the process smooth and painless. They continually walked me through the details from preparing my home for market to leading me to a great buyer and successfully closing on time. I am grateful for the patience and expert guidance from Laura Larry and Esther and highly recommend them"
"Professional patient smart and attentive â€“ Laura and Larry are a dream team of realtors who aggressively pursued our best interests guiding us ultimately to a very successful conclusion! We were very impressed by their technical knowledge â€“ Larry is a contractor so brings a very experienced eye to the homes we viewed â€“ as well as their integrity (they actively steered us away from houses we were interested in even though it was not in their best interests to do so because they knew that â€“ for a variety of reasons â€“ those homes were not what was best for our family). All this and they are very nice people! We couldn't be happier about the result. We recommend them highly."
Gwen and Hank
"Thank you so much Laura and Larry for helping me purchase my new home. You were exceptional through the whole process. My parents and I were truly impressed by how much hard work determination and communication you displayed throughout the whole process. We couldn't have done it without you and Larry. Thank you very much. I would highly recommend you both to anyone I know looking to purchase a new home. Thanks again."
"Larry and Laura are consummate professionals.They give generously of their time their knowledge and themselves. Larry and Laura showed us countless houses and spent countless hours with each of us. They went beyond the expectations of an agentâ€¦very courteous and personable.They represented their community extremely well and found us our perfect home"
Chris and Chrissy Ripley
"I had pleasure of working with Laura and Larry on two different properties. They managed a rental property I owned for many years. They also did an amazing job of selling two properties for me in a difficult market. Laura and Larry are thorough fair experienced easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend Laura and Larry for all of your real estate needs."

"Great experience dealing with everyone at Klein Real Estate they helped me remodel and redo my condo head to toe. It came out fabulous and then rented it really quickly and for top dollar. They had great ideas of what to do and how to do it and got it done quickly. I recommend them to all. "
"I am not in the habit of writing reviews but my experience with Mitra Malek at the Klein Real Estate Team has convinced me otherwise. I personally reside in Florida whereas my condo was in Los Angeles and consequently dealing with the sales could have been challenging for me.Luckily Mitra introduced me to a few cost effective and trust-worthy workers to renovate my condo before sales. In less than a week the condo looked fresh again and ready for the sale. They posted the condo listing on a few websites and Mitra scheduled the openhouse. We received 2 offers the next day. After the negotiations we were able to agree on a sales price about 15k above our listing. The Escrow closed in less than 30 days.I decided to write this review with my greatest pleasure for Mitra to thank her for taking care of my condo and its sales as if it were her own property. I appreciate all she has done for me."
"We've known Laura Klein for at least 25 years and have been using her as our leasing agent for the past 8 years. She and the team at Klein Real Estate are a joy to work with. Their professional and personal approach helps represent us and our property in the best light and we feel they always listen to both our concerns and those of the potential tenants. Laura goes out of her way to make showings effortless and is in constant contact with us regarding any questions or concerns that may arise during the process. As long distant landlords we completely trust Laura and her team to help us find the best and most compatible tenant for our property and to quickly facilitate all of the necessary documentation. We highly recommend her with no reservations. "
