Congratulations to Laura Kaufman! She is celebrating her 12th anniversary with Zephyr Real Estate this year and is based in our Noe Valley office.

Laura keeps a steady focus on her business by making her clients’ needs her top priority. She is a strong advocate for her clients, and by extending proactive communication and looking out for their best interests at every turn, she makes sure they are thrilled with their home sale or purchase.

Laura’s straightforward, enthusiastic and patient approach have led to her success over the years. Before selling real estate she received her MBA from UCLA and worked in high tech marketing. She attributes her success in real estate to her business background and is able to leverage her career, and her client’s goals’, with her extensive knowledge of business and online marketing.

We got to know Laura a little better when catching up with her about her Zephyr anniversary.

1. What do you love to do in your spare time? Do you have a favorite place to hang out?

“When I’m not watching my kids’ soccer games on the weekends, I like to take them to the California Academy of Sciences – my daughters never get tired of the aquarium and I love that there are rotating exhibits so there is always something new to see there. If you get a membership, then you can get in early and beat the crowds – highly recommended!”

2. What is your favorite neighborhood in San Francisco?

“One of my favorite neighborhoods is the DogPatch – there are more and more great cafes and restaurants popping up and my favorite breakfast place – Just For You Cafe – is there. I have a lot of clients who want to live there because of the great weather and the proximity to the CalTrain for an easy Southbay commute.”

3. What neighborhood do you get most energized about when it comes to selling?

“I represent buyers and sellers throughout the city at all different price points — I am thrilled to help my clients buy the right home for them, wherever they want to live and this varies greatly, usually dependent on where and how they are commuting to for work. I am continually amazed by the huge variety of neighborhoods and architecture that San Francisco has to offer.  It’s a lot of fun helping my clients figure out what is the best fit for them.”
