Laura A. Hall Bio
I have a confession to make:
It has taken me a long time to be comfortable with admitting that I am a real estate agent.
It is not because I don’t like my job. I have loved my career passionately from the start. I mean who wouldn’t want to help people with one of the most important decisions of their lives?
But let’s face it, my profession is not akin to let’s say fire fighting, like my husband. Every one trusts a fire fighter, right? I mean, they have trust at “the get go”! Realtors, however rank lower in professional trust than used car salesmen (no offense to the many fine car salespeople out there who do not have too much grease in their hair).
Building trust in real estate is not an easy feat for most Realtors. There are a lot of stereotypes and prejudices to face. But none of it matters if you lead with integrity and genuinely care. This has been my “way of doing business” and it has lead to a long, successful and gratifying career where I have made lifelong friends.
Each year at our table for Thanksgiving, we share our holiday with our cherished friends, Rick & Sherry. Wanting to move from Arizona 6 years ago, they reached out to me from an online ad and asked for my help in finding their wine country dream in Sonoma County. Today they own a little slice of the Sonoma Dream, a hobby vineyard just planted! We also see each other weekly at our Monday Night Supper Club.
The ability to meet new people and become their trusted advisor is something I treasure.
