"I am always on the MOVE, I never stop, I work 24/7 for all my clients. My passion and determination makes me one of the best agents in the industry," top real estate agent Laurin LaLima explains. "I want my clients to feel comfortable with me, I’m never pushy and I always get the job done." Laurin possesses every quality one seeks in a REALTOR®. Being compassionate, understanding and patient, combined with her aggressive work ethic, have helped Laurin achieve great heights in her career. She’s been the #1 sales agent, #1 listing agent and salesperson of the year for the Century 21 Mack Morris Iris Lurie office for the past nine years. Laurin is one of the youngest agents in the industry to achieve her long list of accolades, which includes the NJAR Circle of Excellence-Platinum Award, Grand & Double Centurion Producer Awards and the President’s Superior Sales Performance Award. Also, in Laurin’s career she ranked #2 out of all the Century 21 Agents in the state of New Jersey and #37 in the nation. Laurin ultimately has her sights set on becoming the #1 agent at some point in her career, and it’s undoubtable she will make it happen.
Ambition, integrity and success, it appears, is Laurin’s driving force. She earned her bachelor’s degree and graduated from Rutgers University with a double major in communication and sociology. Although she initially planned to pursue real estate on a part-time basis, she quickly became successful, and it was clear there was no turning back. "I decided to go full force into real estate and just kept with it," she said. "I quickly learned that in this business you get back with you put in. The more time I spent working, the better I became. With my constant desire to be the best, I continued to push myself to the top."
Over the years, she’s perfected her craft, and saw that one of her strengths was in the luxury homes subset. Recently, Laurin sold one of her most expensive homes yet: actress Queen Latifah’s 8,000 square foot estate. But as far as a specialty goes, Laurin doesn’t limit herself to just one area, preferring instead to help everyone. Some of her designations and specialties include ABR (Accredited Buyer Agent), SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist), Effective Negotiator, Networking & Referrals, as well as being an elite Cartus Relocation member.
Laurin is also one of the few real estate agents that has a broker’s license, a testament to her willingness to go above and beyond what is expected of her. "I constantly learn whatever I can to better myself and stay a step above the rest," Laurin says. Her knowledge about real estate runs deep, which strengthens her career. Referrals and repeat clients make up the bulk of her business, as she continually impresses all who work with her.
Laurin works hard to ensure her clients are cared for, resulting in them leaving glowing reviews about their time with her. As one client put it "Laurin is without a doubt one of the best agents I’ve dealt with. Her expertise and marketing plan for selling our house was phenomenal. Her response time to my texts, phone calls and emails were within minutes, and that’s even in the evening/night time. She is super knowledgeable and has kept us in the loop the entire process and always answered all of our questions. Buying and selling have been stressful but Laurin has made it much easier. Even my lawyer has commented on how she has done a great job. Without hesitation I would hire her in a heartbeat. She is a true professional and excellent at what she does."
Whether it’s finding a buyer’s dream home, or setting the optimal listing price for a seller’s house, Laurin stays by her clients’ side, guiding them through the entire process to the very end. She eve goes that extra step by following through after a closing to make sure the buyer or seller is happy with their move. Laurin has obtained many Quality Service Producer Awards throughout her career due to all of her clients’ glowing reviews. And while she does work non-stop to get her clients towards their real estate goals, you’d be wrong to assume it feels like work for her. "I’m very passionate about what I do. I love helping people get what they want. It makes me feel good to know that I played a major part in there move. I am always trying to go one step more than expected and Exceed Expectations!"
