I have been blessed to represent buyers and sellers for over 23 years in this amazing business, from the beautiful rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley to the beach communities of Santa Barbara, Montecito, and Carpinteria. With a strong dedication to exceptional client service, my success is achieved through excellent marketing outreach, daily networking, good old fashioned hard work, and referrals from past clients and friends, who don’t hesitate to pass on my name as a trusted, honest, full-time professional. Thanks to my wonderful clients I finished 2017 as the # 1 BHHS Agent in the Santa Ynez Valley and my sales volume earned me the Chairman’s Circle Platinum Award of being in the Top 1% of Berkshire Hathaway Agents Nationwide. At the end of 2017 I ranked #45 company wide and #26 for the Central-Coast and Los Angeles offices. I am honored to have the distinct pleasure of Uniting Extraordinary Properties with Extraordinary Lives in Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley.
“Laura listed our home and we couldn’t have asked for a stronger commitment nor the marketing expertise from an agent that she provided for us. Her pricing strategy, based on a keen sense of the marketplace, had our home sold in a matter of weeks. Laura has represented us in four real estate transactions in Solvang and Santa Barbara, all of which she handled masterfully and we couldn’t recommend her more highly.” -Doug Roth
“Laura Drammer was the best real estate agent we have ever worked with in purchasing a home. She is professional, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. Laura provided us with additional assistance regarding the area and its resources since we were new to the Santa Ynez Valley. She was always right on target in the homes she showed us. Laura is also just plain fun to collaborate with on any project/purchase. Thank you Laura!” -Gary & Eileen Caris
Laura Drammer has been my real estate agent in the Santa Ynez Valley for over a decade. We came to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley looking for the idyllic horse property from our winter home in Rancho Mirage Ca. In one weekend Laura with careful research and knowledge on her part presented us with over a dozen spectacular properties that distinctly suited our needs. We chose an amazing 5 acres with commanding views and room for my horses and a vineyard of our own and we have never looked back. We have since purchased another ranch estate in Los Olivos that Laura found for us that has been an amazing rental property and we have referred numerous friends to her that have become part of her “real estate family” Laura has always proved to be the consummate professional in every way. She is easy to work with,can always be reached, never pushy….a must for me….and her extensive background in the valley is invaluable in so many ways. If you are looking for that idyllic Santa Ynez estate or just a small taste of the good life we all cherish here Laura Drammer is the one for you. -Janie Gresham
“Laura really made our dream of owning a home in the SYV come true! She met with us, really listened to our wish list and then alerted us to a house just as it was coming on the market. It was the perfect house for us and being the first to make an offer was critical. Laura’s knowledge of the Valley, her instincts and her communication with us all were top notch. She always was there when we needed her – whether it was to give great advice or ease our nerves – and she continued to be there even after the closing – giving us excellent referrals for work that needed to be done. When we won a residential beautification award from the Solvang Rotary Club, we thanked Laura because we couldn’t have done it without her. And when people tell us how lucky we are to have our great home, we tell them it wasn’t luck, it was Laura!” -Lisa Pongracic & Barry Beer (Los Angeles/Los Olivos)
“Laura Drammer recently sold us our wonderful Solvang home. Her expansive knowledge of the market and her special intuitive sense about what we were looking for allowed us to buy the first house she showed us, first time we saw it! Faced with a challenging escrow, Laura managed us through “rough waters” with calm professionalism drawing on her deep knowledge of real estate regulations and legalities. Needless to say, Laura helped us successfully close and we couldn’t be happier with her as our agent. Without hesitation, we strongly give Laura the highest of recommendations.” -Tom Holland
“To Future Clients of Laura Drammer. We have been working with Laura for 6 years. I told her we would be the worst clients in history as both of us are very particular and demanding. We looked at all kinds of property every time we visited ranging from 1 million to 10 million and still we could not find what we wanted. She is patient, kind, fun and completely professional. Our dream property became available this year and it was a difficult process to get to closing but despite the complexities she was unbelievably diligent and strong. We will be grateful forever and friends also.” -Sally Luke and Nick Lydon (New proud owners of Newport Farms Los Olivos, CA)
“Everyone loves Laura the second they meet her and rightfully so. Laura treats her clients just like they were family. I love her no pressure approach. She’s very professional, responsive and tenacious. Thank you Laura for making our home sale experience seamless. You’re a true gem and I’m honored to call you a dear friend.” -Gina Ast
“Laura’s support during our recent relocation to the Santa Ynez Valley exceeded our expectations. Not only did Laura take the time to find us the perfect rental, she also provided us with expert advice, and the occasional hand-holding we needed, while searching and ultimately purchasing our dream home.” -Chris and Lori Parker
Laura Drammer was my Realtor for six years. Six years. She deserves a medal. She was incredibly patient and I finally found the perfect home. From the start Laura was a total pleasure to work with. Rarely do you find someone who is a true combination of professional and kind. Laura clearly knows her business, her knowledge of Real Estate in the area is comprehensive and impressive. She is reliable, smart, easy-going, punctual and proficient. Not once in all that time did Laura miss an appointment, not once was she late. I totally trusted Laura to do what she said she was going to do, she was the epitome of organized. I recommend Laura to anyone who mentions they might be looking for Real Estate in our area, I can’t speak highly enough of her. I had a wonderful experience working with her for what turned out to be a daunting task – but it all worked out in the end – I got what I wanted and more, for less money! Her patience with me was nothing short of remarkable and is a tribute to the fine person, and Realtor, she is. -Moira Gill
Laura Drammer worked with me for close to a year while I looked for the perfect house, at the perfect price in Santa Ynez. Finally we found that house in a bank foreclosed property. Laura was proficient in advising with regard to an offer that the bank would accept and we were able to close in less than 30 days on a beautiful property. Laura showed me many properties, drove me all over the Santa Ynez valley. She worked effortlessly and tirelessly. She was always professional and personable. We forged a nice social friendship as a result of our work together that remains althrough I have since moved to Newport Beach. I will always be grateful and have respect for the job Laura did in finding me the perfect home, at the perfect price. -Bobbie Howe (South Lazy H Ranch)
Dear Laura: It’s now been almost a month since Karen and I moved into our lovely home in Los Olivos and I wanted to share with you how happy we are here and how thankful we are with all the work and dedication you showed in making this possible. Karen say’s it best when she says, “Laura rocks!” So let me just add how much we appreciate your patience- the time you took to show us so many homes from condos to ranches to mansions- you never fatigued (even when we did!)- and by taking so much of your time to show us so many options you gave us the needed context to make our best choice. Through it all, we never felt pressured, always felt assured by you- “hang in there guys; we are going to find your house; we aren’t giving up…”. I also want to acknowledge your skills and fiduciary commitment in negotiating on our behalf. When we were prepared to concede to the Buyer’s demands you encouraged us to stick to our price. How easy it would have been for an agent to take our yield as an opportunity to capture a quick close. Your...
Laura Drammer was extremely helpful and realistic with regards to pricing and showings of my property for sale. She is well versed in the current market climate, scheduling in advance for showings, as well as when to schedule the best Open House days. Given the need for a real estate agent, I would contact Laura again. Alexis Guerrier – Santa Ynez
