Laura Lulgjuraj


Laura Lulgjuraj


Gold Award Winner 2022

For Laura Lulgjuraj, being raised in a family of builders and developers can mean only one thing: “I grew up in dust!” But, more importantly, it also means, “I was always watching a house go up, and I learned, at a very early age, to love real estate.” Laura spent a great deal of time at those job sites back home in Michigan, allowing her a bird’s eye view into how a house becomes a home. “I love showing my clients a property’s true potential and helping them to envision themselves in the space.

With this kind of background, it’s no surprise that in her early 20s, Laura began designing dream homes for clients while working in finance, training as an interior designer, and getting her Bachelor’s degree in New York. She even flipped her own condo. “My parents wanted me to stay in the corporate world, but that wasn’t enough for me I needed more of a challenge.” And, as someone who’s often been called a go-getter and a self-starter, even as a little kid, she just couldn’t sit in an office all day. Her contagious energy and an insatiable thirst for overcoming the next big hurdle had a little something to do with that, too.

Laura found the right fit and the challenging career she was searching for in real estate, a world she’s known since her earliest days. “I love helping people find their dream homes while tapping into my design skills. It makes it that much more fun!” Transactions with Laura at the helm are smooth and stress-free, partly because she knows the industry inside and out, and partly because she knows how her clients feel. “I’ve lived it all. Many times over.” And, that has left her with limitless patience and a level of understanding so few possess.

Laura resides in White Plains with her husband and dogs in a home that was purchased as a fixer-upper; one that most buyers overlooked, but that was begging for her keen eye and creative hand. As for her clients, they call her an endless source of knowledge, vision, and drive. And, they refuse to partner with anybody else.

Each day Jamie and I had a novel of questions, all of which Laura was able to answer quickly and with great detail so we understood everything about the renting process. In the future we will be working with Laura again, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or rent!"

We would absolutely work with her again and recommend her to anyone looking for a home!"

-Nicole - Chappaqua, NY

"Working with Laura on both buying and selling was truly a pleasure! As a first time buyer, she made the process so quick and easy and has such great knowledge and was always very responsive to answer any question or request. Her bulldog mentality fits perfect with this market and she truly is one the hardest working realtors in the area who will go above and beyond for her clients. I’d gladly work with Laura again in the future and I recommend anyone looking to purchase to work with her!"

-Mike - White Plains, NY

-Jared - South Salem, NY

Overall she was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone!"

-Allison - Putnam Valley, NY

"Laura was our realtor for our first home. She is warm, friendly, and professional. First time home buyers are always on edge, and Laura was always there to comfort us. She is very knowledgeable about the area. She still sends us cards for our home anniversary! That says a lot about her caring personality."

-Peter - White Plains, NY

I was a nervous wreck looking for a new home. It was an emotional roller coaster for me because I do not like change. It was great working with Laura. She makes the experience exciting and less stressful. She looks out for her client’s best interest and is always there to answer any questions or concerns. She also reaches out to you throughout the entire process to see how you are doing and feeling about everything. It was so unexpected and great to know she was thinking of me! She is a great realtor who is always so positive and happy to be showing you homes, even if it’s a last minute request (which I am queen of!). Thank you for everything Laura!

-Maddoneon - White Plains, NY

Laura’s energy is something else! She genuinely loves what she does, and it shows! She will always answer your call, no matter what time of the day and if she cannot answer, she will text you to let you know that is running around and will be in touch with you. She never leaves you feeling lost; she makes sure that you feel comfortable and understand the process as things progress. She spent countless hours with me on the phone and never once did I sense anything but patience and great, great energy! When we lost the first deal because of a bidding bar, she kept my spirits high and promised me she would do everything she could to help me find the perfect home. She even provided a timeline that outlined the whole buyer process. I would not ever recommend any other agent or will I use anyone else, ever! She is a great realtor who wholeheartedly cares about her clients. She is a gem!

-K. Jonpaul - White Plains, NY

Laura was excellent to work with. We were first time home buyers and she spent so much time teaching us about the process. She was very accommodating to last minute requests to see listings. She was persistent when we needed a little encouragement and enthusiasm! All in all, she was wonderful to work with and we are so happy in our new home.

-Hartsdale, NY

Laura was amazing and so kind! Not only is she a great agent, but she makes you feel like you have known each other for years! She is great and very detailed when walking you through the process of purchasing a place! Thank you for everything Laura! You are the best!

-North White Plains, NY

Laura has her client’s best intentions at heart. Being a realtor isn’t just a job for her, it’s truly her passion! She is professional, charismatic, and has such an upbeat personality. She went above and beyond for me and did it with a smile the whole time! Thank you for finding me the perfect home for the next chapter in my life! I am so happy to have started that chapter with you.

-A. Frazier - White Plains, NY

My family and I are very thankful to have met Laura. I bought my first place this year and could have not asked for a more qualified agent! She is great at communicating and breaking the process down for those who are not familiar. She is also a tough negotiator and will get you the best deal! My parents are both very old school and have a hard time trusting people, but when they met Laura, they too saw how skilled and client focused she was. Laura's number one priority is her clients. If she does not think you are getting a good deal, she will tell you to walk away, even if that means lost time and commission for her. She is a honest agent who cares more about making a difference in someone’s life, than anything else. I will make sure that anyone I know only uses Laura. It is hard to find people who are this loyal and dedicated to their clients. She is full of energy, full of knowledge and has a huge heart! I look forward to working with her again in the future.

-Yewajoj - White Plains, NY

Laura was wonderful to work with. She has a great wealth of knowledge for real-estate and had so many great tips on how to lay out furniture in the rooms and how to maximize space. She never stops working either! She answered my calls and texts at all hours and was always so kind and patient with me. I couldn't be more pleased with Laura and her service. She is a rock star negotiator! Thank you for helping me and my family find our new home Laura! We highly recommend to anyone who wants a A++ agent!

-White Plains, NY

Laura was amazing to work with! Her professionalism, knowledge, and expertise made us feel so comfortable right away. She answered any and all questions we had at all hours of the day. She found us our first apartment and we couldn't be happier. Thank you so much Laura!

-tatianagjonlekaj - White Plains, NY

Laura negotiated hard for us and didn’t crack under the pressure once! We wanted our dream home, but we wanted it for a fair price. After going back and forth for two weeks, we received a call that our offer was accepted. She made the process as smooth as possible and was there to answer any questions. She is a true professional who takes her clients concerns into serious consideration. She is a sharp business woman who we had the pleasure to be represented by.

-Nikit8 - New Rochelle, NY

We met Laura about 6 months ago, and the first time was more than enough to realize the we found the perfect agent who would help us find our first home. The first thing that stood apart for us was that she didn’t try just to push us to sell us the property, rather gave us a very detailed idea on pros and cons for the property. We were first time buyers and she made our experience extra special by staying by our side, answering each and every question of ours , and guiding us through everything... she has been our shimmering ray of sunshine . Not only did she help us look through multiple properties till she found us the perfect home but after we found our house, she went on to make sure everything went smooth till the last step. She is a Gem and a great individual, we found a life long friend in her....

-Valhalla, NY

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Laura Lulgjuraj after I sold my home of 31 years. Laura made a very strong impression from our first meeting. She is sharp, knowledgeable, a great communicator and her attention to detail is spot on. The task of finding a place was a challenge because I have a 65 lb chocolate Labrador and although Molly is friendly, she exceeded the weight criteria for many of the places that I liked. Laura showed me a lovely place that was close to my job, accepted dogs and I was thrilled! Unfortunately, I was also outbid and crestfallen. Laura was very supportive, never pushy, and always had a positive outlook. ‘Things happen for a reason. We’ll find something better. Trust me” I later received a phone call from her and I could hear the excitement in her voice. She wanted me to see a place that was recently put on the market. As soon as I walked in, I knew Laura had found a new home for me and Molly. It was everything I dreamed of and it surpassed the other place in all areas, especially the price! Laura is a competent, poised and professional real estate saleswoman. She did the walk through with me and was so confident and proficient that I felt totally assured in every way. I highly recommend Laura to my colleagues, friends and family because she is intelligent, well informed and always has her client’s interests as a priority. It was an absolute delight to work with her!

-Cynthia - White Plains, NY

As a first time buyer I did not know where to begin. A friend of mine had recommended Laura to me as she had just helped him purchase his first home. After my first appointment with Laura I knew that she was exactly what I was looking for and that I was going to continue the process with her. Laura is an outstanding agent/person who I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to buy. She has a great personality, outstanding work ethic, and puts her clients before anything else. Any question or concerns I had Laura was right on top of it even on her busiest days. I can assure you that you will be nothing less than satisfied and happy when dealing with Laura. She definitely went beyond expectations and made the process so easy and simple even at such stressful times. It was an absolute pleasure going through the process with her. Thanks Laura!

-P. Nigro - White Plains, NY

Laura was beyond amazing! She helped us find our perfect apartment. After meeting Laura for the first time, she knew exactly what my boyfriend and I were searching for! Not only is she personable, but her work ethic is outstanding and she kept us informed every step of the way. Laura went out of her way several times to make sure we got the apartment of our choice. In the future when we are ready to buy a house, we are definitely going to use Laura again! Thank you Laura!!

-Allyson - White Plains, NY

Laura went far and beyond to help us find a home. It took us months of searching until we found our dream home! She never gave up on us, even when we struggled and semi-gave up ourselves. I would honestly recommend her to anyone and everyone that I know who’s searching for a home, not only did she help us find a home, she helped us through the entire (tedious) coop application.... twice ! She answered all of my crazy midnight texts, and every single question I had! She dealt with me during my pregnancy and afterwards—- not the easiest! But she made everything perfect, smooth, and stress-free. My husband and I actually enjoyed home-searching with Laura, she made me cry laughing even when depressed about the horrible luck we were having. She is truly an amazing person, definitely a people person, and her team is lucky to have her! Should I ever plan to purchase a home or sell my current home— LAURA IS MY GO-TO GAL!

-Diana - White Plains, NY

We cannot recommend Laura and the whole Gino Bello Homes team enough! We have been lucky enough to have worked with them on both the buying and selling side. Laura is a true professional, she worked diligently and efficiently. Along the way, Laura exceeded our expectations, frequently checking in on us, answering questions early in the morning or late at night. Laura is the one you want to call when you’re either buying or selling your house. We believe because of her experience, expertise, and dedication, our home buying and selling process was seamless. We have recommended Laura and The Gino Bello team to our friends whom are looking to buy/sell their house.

-Omearamack - White Plains, NY

Laura made my experience seamless and fun. She provided me technical information throughout this entire process and was always willing to talk through a situation. Laura was also always very quick to try to take care of an issue if anything would arise; you never even had to ask her before she would say she’d contact so-and-so to try to fix an issue. She defended me and looked out for me and I couldn’t have asked for a better first home buying experience.
