Laura Best

Welcome Home

We all have a story to tell. Let me tell you mine. 

I was born and raised in the island of Puerto Rico but have lived in the States for most of my adult life. I’ve been an Oak Park resident since 2009 and love the diversity and energy our neighborhood offers. Before moving to Oak Park, my husband and I lived in the Chicago neighborhoods of Lincoln Park, Ukranian Village, Lincoln Square and Galewood. We have a teen son at OPRF High School and twin boys at Beye Elementary. 

I became licensed as an Illinois Real Estate Agent after being in corporate America for over 20 years. I was at a crossroad and wanted to do something that allowed me to be my authentic self while helping others live their best life. Friends and colleagues describe me as genuine, approachable, motivating, empathetic and engaging. As your Real Estate agent, I will use these traits to provide you and your referrals unparalleled service, always with your best interests in mind. 

I was a Human Resources professional at global companies like Mercer and Boeing and at luxury hospitality brands like Ritz-Carlton and Four Seasons Hotels. I learned early in my career that building lasting relationships and anticipating the needs of clients, guests and employees is essential for success. That’s why I will always bring my passion about hospitality and experiences as an HR professional to every step of the journey to finding your next home. 

In my free time, I love to read, spend time with family, host gatherings in my home and volunteer at the kids’ schools.

I’d love to hear your story. Whether you are buying or selling, I will provide guidance at each step of the way. I invite you to contact me to discuss your next steps.

“[In a home] You’re making an investment in what could be the most important asset you’ll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you’re going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it’s at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage… 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."
