Laura has been an accomplished real estate professional since 2005. Starting her career in residential leasing, Laura quickly grew to be one of Chicago's top leasing agents, where she negotiated over 1,000 leases. She oversaw a natural progression as her clients went from renters to first-time home buyers, prompting Laura to turn her focus to the purchase market. She now specializes in assisting buyers with condominium and single-family home purchases, as well as investment properties. Laura also spends a lot of her time working with sellers, providing the most current market data and knowledge of Chicago's neighborhoods to accurately price and market their home for the best possible return. Laura has a passion for interior design and decor, which helps her advise sellers on home staging and decluttering in order to attract the largest pool of buyers for their property.
Laura's number one goal is to provide her clients with excellent customer service and to make them feel comfortable throughout the buying and selling process, knowing that it is often one of the largest financial decisions her clients will make in their lifetime. She is dedicated to making sure her clients are well informed, treating each transaction as if it were her own investment. She does not view real estate as a one-time transaction; rather, it's about creating a long-term, trustworthy relationship with each client. Long after the transaction is complete, Laura keeps in touch with her clients and remains their resource for "all things real estate" (contractor/vendor referrals, current market analysis, etc). This approach is why Laura has earned such a strong referral business over the years. She is always in tune with the ever-changing market and uses that knowledge to guide and inform her clients. Laura continues to sharpen her real estate knowledge through continuing education courses and acquiring new credentials, such as Certified Negotiation Expert and Accredited Buyer Representative.

This was our second time using Lake Group for the purchase and sale of a home and yet again- Laura and Lance exceeded all expectations. They bring new meaning to the term “full-service” and found ways to make the process as seamless and stress free for us as possible at every step of the process- even during a pandemic! Laura was extremely attentive and engaged during the sale of our home and gave great advice on how to stay competitive during the unpredictable covid market in Chicago. She went above and beyond to ensure our place was marketed aggressively and showed flawlessly. Even after the sale she remained very involved in helping us navigate t...— K.D.
Laura is extremely easy to work with and proved throughout the process why she is one of the area’s top real estate agents. Couldn’t have been more impressed and pleased with her work from beginning to end. She’s a tremendous advocate for her clients who consistently goes above and beyond.— G.H.
Two words: Trusted Partner. Laura made the process of selling our home feel like we had a personal concierge guiding us through the entire process. She worked to really understand our needs and timelines, and guided us through the journey in a way that felt effortless. We will 100% work with her to purchase our new home as well as any future real-estate transactions. If you're looking for a very experienced professional, look no further.— B.R.
Laura is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. I closed on a condo in 30 days, thanks to her. She promptly provided answers to all of my questions. I strongly recommend Laura Dewey Lando.— Jane G.
Laura was so amazing to work with and she helped us find the perfect place! I was a first time home buyer, and she was so helpful and knowledgeable and made the whole process so much easier!— Sarah S.
I could not have had a better experience with Laura, and I highly recommend her for any buying/selling needs. She has immense knowledge of the market, and she was more than willing to go out of her way to make sure I was prioritized. Laura also provided perfect staging recommendations and solutions to enhance showings, and her contact list of professionals needed was extremely beneficial. Last but not least, I had tight time constraints due to a move, and Laura was able to have the condo under contract in less than 1 week! Laura is truly the best of the best, and her experience and expertise are unparalleled.— Katie N.
Laura was a valuable advocate during the purchase of our Bucktown condo. She personally resolved all matters that came up with the seller's agent to keep the entire process stress free, plus had a number of great recommendations for a lawyer, inspector, and moving companies. Laura is very engaged in the process and accompanied us to make interior selections with the builder, walk through the property, and at inspections. She took detailed notes at every meeting and regularly advocated for our needs during and after meetings. Finally, Laura's knowledge of comps in the market is extraordinary and we relied on her heavily to advise us when preparing a...— Melissa B.
Our realtor, Laura Lando of Compass Real Estate, was excellent from start to finish! When we initially met with Laura to discuss listing our rental condo for sale, she had already done some basic research on sales in the condo building and explained in broad terms what we might expect in the listing and sale of the property. Shortly thereafter, she furnished us with her detailed market analysis of the value of the property and supported her opinion with comparable sales of similar properties in the past year. After agreeing on the probable value of the condo and the appropriate listing price, Laura explained what needed to be done to get the unit sa...— Lauri E.
Laura helped us buy a new home and sell our current condo at the same time and made the entire process much less stressful. She walked us through every step of the negotiations and inspections as well as guided us as first time sellers. I would highly recommend her to anyone!— Eileen
