About Laura Caballero
DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY TO REAL ESTATE.
My journey to real estate was cultivated at a young age by seeing my mom, who had six girls to raise on her own, gain financial independence through purchasing a home and gaining equity over the years. She worked very hard as a nurse and did not have much money for extras, but having a home made us all feel rich even though we were not. My journey continued through college earning my Masters Degree in Urban and Regional Planning where I continued to learn the importance of real estate in our economy. Shortly after college I purchased my first home in Vallejo, CA. I since have purchased and sold seven properties some of which I managed as rentals. My real estate knowledge was further enhanced through my 28 year career with the federal government managing environmental programs and projects involving complex real estate transactions. I have been able to build security through real estate and now I want to share that knowledge with my friends and neighbors.
WHAT ARE THREE WORDS YOUR CLIENTS WOULD USE TO DESCRIBE YOU?

WHAT MOST EXCITES YOU ABOUT YOUR WORK?
Helping people achieve their dreams. Real estate investment is at the same time a highly emotional experience and an intellectual challenge. It is exciting to me to be able to leverage not only my technical skills in real estate but also my interpersonal skills helping people navigate the emotional labyrinth that buying and selling a home can become.

Hanging out with my family, in my garden, or taking walks in this beautiful City of ours.

My family and sushi :)
