Jean & Miguel, Middletown, NY

Laurel Lustgarten is a lovely lady and we were so happy with her performance in selling our house. Laurel's response time is impeccable and she is very creative. This was a tense time for us with health issues and road blocks along the way. Laurel was patient, highly knowledgeable, and consistently met our needs.
Laurel was professional and responded quickly whether by email or text. She put no pressure on us to keep the house on the market during times when we knew we could not, in good conscience do so. Moreover, she is highly attentive to detail and provided us with great advice on small tasks to help make the home even more marketable.
We are so happy that Laurel answered our lead! Thank you Laurel, yet again!

Landrea, Middletown

If you are looking for a personable, knowledgeable realtor that is honest Laurel is the person you want to hire. She is the best. Laurel was there for every step of my home buying process and was always available to answer any questions I had. She gave me great advice and made me feel comfortable through my first time home buying experience.

Jeff & Lisa, Goshen

The house sold quickly at close to the asking price. She kept in frequent contact and provided reports on how many people had seen my house and feedback from those realtors.

"Laurel is reliable, responsive, and always exceeded my expectations! Laurel was referred to me over 5 years ago to help me find my first home, and she made such a great impression, that I had referred her to many friends/associates that increased her client base, who are also very happy. When I called to tell her I want to sell my home, she made an appointment within days, made some recommendations to improve the "look" with a few minor dollars to be spent, we came to an agreement on the listing price, and I had offers the first day on the market, and then it was a bidding war and the house sold for over list price. She is GREAT, and I will continue to refer her business because of her professionalism, knowledge of residential house, and her excellent communication skills!"

Deshawn and Ateea, Middletown

My wife and I used laurel when we rented a condo and then when we were ready to buy a home. She is there any time and for anything. She helps with your choices and with some of her own. She's never afraid to share her opinion and her invaluable knowledge. She's a great realtor but a great friend as well. I recommend her to everyone who asks me about finding a home in Orange County. Use her! She's the best "I have already stated throughout the survey she is great and should anyone need a home Orange County please give her a call. U will be satisfied."

Bonnie, Pine Bush

"Laurel provided superior customer service in all aspects of the home buying process. She knew my needs and wants and helped me find the perfect home. I can't thank her enough.”

Peter, Middletown

"My wife and I called Renee Zurlo a friend of many years at Rand Realty. She knew the area where my home was and told me that Laurel Lustgarten was the Rep that I needed. Renee was right. Laurel knows the area, the real estate market in Orange County and knows how to market a home. When you put all that together with her energy and tenacity, your have the best Real Estate agent in Orange County.

Laurel brought the right buyer to my home. It was a smooth transaction and she kept me informed every bit of the way. Laurel has excellent communication skills.

Very happy with Renee Zurlo for suggesting Laurel Lustgarten to handle the sale of my home.

Very positive experience.

She was simply the best. Exceeded our expectations. We had over 42 showings. When things began to slow down, Laurel suggested a change in strategy. She was always on top of the listing."

Antonella, Middletown

"Laurel made the entire process of my first time home purchase very smooth from beginning to end. She kept me informed & updated at all times on all the steps of the process. Very knowledgeable in all things real estate, great attitude, fantastic follow through skills & endless resources. I was at ease during the entire process. I couldn't recommend her more highly."

Wes, Middletown

"We were new to the area and didn't know much about it. Laurel was fantastic at helping us learn about the areas we were considering and find the location that best fit our needs. We didn't really know what we wanted at first, but after talking to us and seeing which homes we were interested in, she figured out exactly what we'd like and actually found the home we ended up buying for us! I was really impressed that she proactively identified homes she thought we might be interested in, instead of just pointing us to a website and having us do all of the research on our own.

We were on a tight timeline and Laurel really helped keep us moving along in our purchase. Any time we contacted her, she was always very quick to respond.

We would highly recommend Laurel to anyone looking to buy a home!"

Bill, Monroe

"I researched the web for top selling agents in Orange County NY. I was provided with the top four agents all from different agencies. Laurel was the best prepared and most professional of the all of them. She toured the entire house including basement and outdoor storage shed to get a thorough representation of our house. She provided local comps and discussed what range she felt the house would sell. My wife and I immediately felt Laurel was the right agent for us. Through out the entire sale, Laurel set a standard that very few of the agents showing our house could begin to compare with.

The very first showing produced a local buyer. While we accepted their offer the sale fell through after 5 months of waiting for the buyer to secure his funds for a cash purchase and then we learned he had virtually no credit. Had his agent been as professional and dedicated as Laurel we would not have endured that painful time loss. As winter approached the showings slowed down and Laurel continued to show our house in magazines, direct mail and through contact with every agent that had seen the house. She remain confident and committed selling our house at the price we wanted.

As our house was on the market for nearly a year, Laurel maintained a dedicated mission to find a buyer. We referred her to three other friends and she successfully sold both their houses. We soon saw Laurel more a a friend and confidant then an agent and felt truly blessed that we had made the right choice in selecting her as our agent.

We really had no dialog with the broker staff personally. We dealt with Laurel exclusively except for the few contacts we had with the showing coordinator at Rand who was always very professional and able to address any showing issues we had.

For the year that our home was on the market, we entertained 37 showings. Not one of the showing agents demonstrated the professionalism an charisma that Laurel offered. She was always available and helped us stage the house for professional pictures an video and made multiple suggestions for changes to highlight the features of the house. We consider Laurel a friend instead of a contracted agent."

Marcq, Monroe

Laurel provided an impressive record of her history as real estate agent in Orange Co, NY and came to the first meeting with a good assessment of properties similar to ours. In short, she knows her stuff and if you are reasonable and listen to her, she will get your house sold. For more details, see hereafter. After we selected Laurel she came back, toured the house and then put together a detailed study of comparable and an estimate of the expected sale price for our house as well as a series of things to do (repairs, improvements, fixes, ..) to improve market value and perspectives of sale. Once we were ready to list, she advertized aggressively, advised us throughout on the pricing strategy and price reductions. Without short selling our property compared to competing listings, we ended up selling within 4 months within $1000 of what she had estimated. All that in the very saturated Orange Co market.

Maria, Newburgh

As a first time home buyer, Laurel made this process easy for me. She was always there when I needed her & made what could have been a stressful one, a smooth transaction. She was always there with a smile and positive attitude even when things with the bank were taking longer than anticipated.

She answered all my questions without hesitation (even some that may not have been her area of expertise) and she would always give me her honest opinion which was important to me. She always made herself available to me and responded to my emails, calls and texts promptly.

She took excellent care of me as her customer but also made me feel like we were a team! She is not only an exceptional realtor but also a wonderful human being. I will always recommended Laurel to my friends and family looking to buy or sell a home as I know she will treat them as she treated me and they will have a great experience.


Ivan & Chastity, Washingtonville

My name is Ivan and my wife Chastity decided to move from Brooklyn and look for a home upstate NY. My wife and I stumbled across Laurel and Rand Realty while looking on Zillow for homes. Needless to say we enjoyed the company of Laurel not only as a Real estate agent but also as a friend. She quickly gained our trust through her honesty and excellent recommendations of local resources such as our lawyer and current loan officer. She was excellent at understanding our needs and wants while being able step back and allow us to make really important decisions. We would recommend her to family and friends knowing that she would extend the same professionalism and expertise she did to my wife and I. We hope to continue to have a relationship in the future with Laurel and we are forever grateful for her in helping us get the home of our dreams. Thank You Laurel!!

Ellen, Monroe

Laurel Lustgarten was professional, personable and very attentive to us and to details. She always responded to emails and phone calls and helped tremendously throughout the selling process. We can't thank her enough!

Laurel's use of a professional photographer to take photos and a video of our home was such a great idea - it's what sold our home to the very first couple who came to see it! They saw our home online and drove an hour and a half to see it in person, already loving it!

It's amazing when you use a sales professional like Laurel Lustgarten, who really knows what she's doing, what a difference it make could make. From the photos and videos, to the spiraled book of details and photos of our house available to all who came, Laurel made the selling of our home much easier than we dreamed it could possibly be.

Veronica, Middletown

Laurel never missed a beat. Extremely thorough and dedicated. She puts her heart and soul into every aspect of the sale and is on top of every step along the way. She goes above and beyond while in constant communication.

Daphne, Goshen

Laurel Lustgarten helped my husband and I sell our home and helped us find our dream home. We had been trying to sell our home that had virtually no property and was located on a very busy and noisy road. Before meeting Laurel, we had been trying to sell our home for 6 yrs without any success. She sold our home and helped us find our dream home in a short period of time. We could not be happier! In addition to her extensive knowledge, experience, and an extremely admirable and focused work ethic, she makes an effort to know her clients. I can honestly say that she did not show me a home that I wouldn't have picked myself. She was never pushy or represented herself or her opinions in a biased manner. She allows her clients to make decisions while offering thoughtful opinions and insight. I wholeheartedly recommend Laurel. She is the hardest working person that I know. It is obvious that she loves what she does. Her tireless work ethic, real estate business acumen, and overall pleasant demeanor are a testament to that.

Pat, Walden

I have bought and sold 6 homes and my experience with Laurel was by far the most exceptional. She is Very knowledgeable about the area, staging and marketing. She discussed all listing information with me in detail and priced my home perfectly for the market. We had an accepted offer within 2 weeks. She is highly responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. I could not recommend her more.

Alexis, Margate, FL

I would highly recommend Laurel Lustgarten to any one selling their home. Laurel was always professional and easy to get a hold of with any questions. Laurel is on top of her game and always willing to go the extra mile.

Robert, Monroe

She was very professional and knowledgeable. Her comments about how to present our home were honest and very helpful.

Nancy, Monroe

My husband and I are first time home buyers. We honestly chose Laurel by her reviews on Rand Realty. In speaking with her she made us feel very comfortable, there was never pressure or frustration towards us. She was always up front and honest which we admired greatly. She completely accommodated our situation. Laurel made our home buying experience smooth and very memorable one. You hear nightmare stories and we certainly did not have that type of experience at all. I would recommend Laurel to anyone I know purchasing or selling a home and we will certainly keep in contact with her for our future needs. The hardest part of this experience will be missing seeing and talking to Laurel regularly.
Laurel was 100% on with everything! She was extremely efficient and handled every situation in a very timely manner. Whatever we asked of her she responded and accommodated.
Laurel made this a fantastic experience. She is extremely professional but certainly makes you feel so comfortable and that she is here for you completely. This was a first experience of home buying for us and she guided us through the whole thing and made it all so smooth. Her honesty is an asset she holds that really put my husband and I at ease. We truly appreciated her honesty and advice.
We primarily only dealt with Laurel who was above and beyond!!As noted in prior comments, Laurel has made this first time buying experience a fantastic smooth event. Never expected it to go so well. We both are so pleased and can't believe it’s over.....our first call to start "looking" at houses was Feb 8approximately and we are already living in our new home and it’s June 21!!

Jay .E Goshen, NY

After meeting with two other broker's, my wife and I determined Laurel Lustgarten was by far the most knowledgeable and professional. Laurel's attentiveness was absolutely astonishing. She was available at all hours Monday through Sunday no exceptions even on holidays. The entire process went very smoothly from the initial offer to closing, anything that Laurel had anything to dowith gave us no issues. The best part of working with Laurel is her knowledge of all things home related. Laurel knows every step of the home buying process and the contacts to make every step as smooth as possible. Laurel is generally one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting or working with. Always on time and prepared. When issues present themselves, Laurel will have the solution .

Barbara C.,

Laurel was always attentive, and always there to answer all of our questions. She Made the process of buying our first home very comfortable. Excellent all around!

John D. Campbell Hall, NY

Every aspect of our interactions with Laurel were positive. She is professional, polite and courteous. She was ALWAYS accessible during the day, at night and on the weekends. Her knowledge of the industry coupled with here professionalism and fantastic personality makes her top notch in my opinion! She's the best.

R. Locke

My first time home buying experience was a remarkable experience all because of Laurel Lustgarten. She allowed to have the flexibility between mine and my wife's needs. Really steared us in all the right directions while protecting us from bad situations. She was always responsive to ideas and solutions. She also took personal time to answer questions and do research. It was calm in if this house isn't for you we will find another one. She was so knowledgeable about all aspects of homes telling us things that would need to be fixed or wouldn't pass inspections. I really could not have imagined buying a house without her.

S. Herrmann

There are no words that can adequately describe Laurel's abilities as a real estate agent. She is the consummate professional, following up every detail and keeping in touch constantly with knowledgeable advice and encouragement. She truly cares about her clients and does everything in her power to work on their behalf. Her level of service and professionalism is very rare and quite frankly, we don't know what we would have done without her. She has our highest recommendation and our gratitude.

L. Dorn

Laurel is a true professional, what a wonderful, caring person who put my husband and I ease when we were selling our home. She was always available to answer our questions the pictures she took of the house where beautiful. Would recommend Laurel to anyone who was thinking of selling their home. Laurel is a true asset

S. Hansen

Thanks to your expertise and perseverance, we were able to work through many hurdles and obstacles that lay on the way to closing the sale. I wish more real estate agents would put in time and effort the way you have. Choosing you for our agent was the best choice we could have made."

Marsha and Russell

"Laurel has been our realtor for the last few years, and so far has handled the details of three transactions for us. We have found her to be unfailingly and unusually responsive to our contacts, attentive to details and highly diligent regarding every aspect of our needs.

In addition, we have found Ms. Lustgarten’s thoughtful opinions to be consistently based on thorough and accurate research. Her judgment is sound, and we always seek and appreciate her advice."

With sincerest gratitude, C Vandermark

"It is my sincerest pleasure to write this letter of thanks to you for the unbelievable job you have done as my real estate agent. My wife and I have been living in our new home for about 2 months now thanks to you and your team! In all honesty, I never thought I would be a home owner at my age and in today’s economy. I remember calling you for some information on what I needed to do to position myself to buy a home in the next few years and you gave me more than I could have ever bargained for. You helped us realize the potential and then delivered on every promise… beyond my expectations I might add.
As a service provider myself, I know what is expected of me, and I know what my expectations are… you surpassed them all. From emails of listings coming through from you to my inbox at 1-2-3am in the morning, to home visits by you on a Saturday or Sunday… WOW. You cared more about helping us than I ever thought someone would. You took time to listen to what we wanted, you studied the inventory, you asked probing questions to get a great understanding of our needs, you kept patient with us as we didn’t know what to look for. Most importantly, you never seemed stressed, time consumed, impatient or even slightly doubtful. When things got concerning (as they always do in real estate) you kept a positive attitude and made sure Jackie and I were aware of communications from other sides and what your next step would be.
I had heard horror stories from so many first time buyers about the process’s that they went through and the stress level that follows… I have no idea what any of them were talking about. You made it seem so easy and made it happen very fast, considering the circumstances, and Jackie and I have the home of our dreams… just in time for baby Aiden to be born.
My biggest thanks to you is for the relationship that continues long after closing. So many vendors are willing to cater to someone’s needs until the job is “done”. What makes you so special is that you truly want to continue the relationship and be our agent for life… and you absolutely will be. I can never repay you for what you gave to me and my family. It was such a pleasure to work with you on this purchase. I really believe that you are the best in the business and any home buyer or seller will always by in good hands with you as their agent. I thank you again from the bottom of my heart and wish you the best in 2012 and beyond. Jackie, Bentley, baby Aiden and myself look forward to seeing you again soon.

The Doran Family

We had no idea what to expect coming into the market. Your eagerness to ease our minds and willingness to help us around every corner was beyond belief. Thanks to you we are now proud owners of our dream home. We are looking forward to watching our son grow up in his new house! From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you!

Bob and Colleen Glendening

Thank you so very, very much for all that you did to assist us in selling our home. In a tough market, you were able to make spot-on recommendations every step of the way to ensure that our home was shown and marketed in the most positive light and achieved the best possible price. Your attention to detail, responsiveness, guidance and professionalism expedited the selling of our home and we are tremendously grateful. We highly recommend you to anyone seeking a ‘best in class’ realtor.

Jackie S.

I would absolutely recommend you to any family or friends who are searching for a home. I have found my dream home and you helped to make sure everything went in my favor. You stood up on my behalf when the needed and you made the experience enjoyable and almost effortless thank you.


"Feeling really grateful that you helped us sell our house. It's amazing that in this market we were able to sell and move into a place that we really want to be in. We just LOVE it!"


I had worked with Laurel Lustgarten previously when I purchased my home and felt her services were outstanding so of course I chose her to list my home now that I was selling and she clearly "out did herself". Due to my financial situation I needed to sell my house fast. I was skeptical will I find a buyer in time. When Laurel gets going nothing stops her! she found my buyer in a matter of days and at a great price! she is a skilled negotiator so now we just had to close quickly. time was of the essence...Laurel's persistence and great follow up skills brought us to the table for a timely closing, she really knows her stuff. As I have expressed to her she really pulled off a miracle! She really does excel in all areas!-

Sweed Family

As first time home buyers, we did not know what to expect or look for in purchasing a home. Laurel Lustgarten has a lot of knowledge of the market!. She went above and beyond for our family every step of the way. She made us feel like we were her number one priority. She made the home buying process as smooth as possible for us; even to getting us in contact with the right people from our mortgage company, to home owners insurance down to our lawyers. They all worked closely together and kept us in the loop on a daily basis. We believe no one could have or would have been a better fit for us. We will be recommending Laurel to all our family and friends.

E.Ward Washingtonville, NY

Laurel is a highly knowledgeable professional who was extremely patient during the whole lengthy selling process.

Mary, Wurtsboro, NY

I was told that Laurel is aggressive in promoting a property, but not overly "pushy" when it comes to demands on the seller. I was also told that she is very willing to work with the seller if there is a conflict in asking price. I was looking for a broker that would promote my property but be kind and understanding at the same time. Laurel met up to all my expectations! Selling my home was very emotional for me. My deceased husband and I built this home in 1985-86, and it held many valuable memories and moments of happiness. Laurel was very compassionate and understood fully what a hard decision it was for me to part with my "home" of close to 30 yrs. Laurel is a gem and makes any seller feel comfortable during a very stressful time. She is also right on top of things. What impressed me the most was her accessibility and excellent communication, any time of the day or night. Laurel Lustgarten is the best!!

James and Melissa Muise

We would never use anybody else in the future, nor would we recommend anybody other than Laurel. She was professional, very helpful and always returned our calls. We firmly believe that our process ran as smooth as it did due to Laurel constantly pursuing any matters that had come up and handling them in a timely manner. It was a pleasure and overall not nearly as stressful as we had anticipated.

R. Templin

"I highly recommend Laurel Lustgarten to anyone looking for a true professional to market their home in the Hudson Valley. I was extremely pleased with her efforts to market my home and equally pleased with her work ethic in doing so. The virtual tour and professional photographs she arranged made a great impression upon prospective buyers."

B. Connor

Before we found Laurel I sent out a message to 3 different realtors over a holiday weekend and Laurel was the ONLY one to respond to me! Laurel is fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about her. She is literally just a phone call away - and if she's not available immediately she responds quickly! She is honest and straightforward and really works hard to make the entire house buying process flow smoothly!"

Audrey, Otisville

"Laurel is an asset to Rand Realty. She is an expert at what she does. She took the time to listen and really pay attention to details. She sold my family home and spent so much time explaining things to my mom through the whole process. She is the best!"

Filomena, Newburgh

"Laurel was very professional in the sale of the home. She recommended how to present the home for buyers and handled many of the obstacles that surfaced extremely well. I would recommend Laurel very highly."

Thomas, Middletown

"Laurel was absolutely amazing. We had met with another realtor prior to listing our house with Laurel and the experience was just horrible. Although we knew our house was not in tip top shape and was somewhat dated, Laurel really treated us with respect and guided us every step of the way. Laurel was simply incredible. She did everything she promised and more."

Rebecca, Middletown

"Laurel Lustgarten is a Knowledgeable, conscientious, talented broker who listens and follows through with a professional approach.

Absolutely the best! New category - Outstanding!"

Margery, Middletown

"Laurel Lustgarten is a superior agent. She was always accessible and all of of her advice was spot on. Within a week I had 5 offers and sold for thousands above asking price."

Bobby, Middletown

Laurel goes above and beyond in her handling of your realtor needs. She is available 24/7 ALWAYS gets back to you right away and is always on top of every aspect of the deal. She is the reason it works. Between her personality and professionalism you have to use her!

Nancy, Wurtsboro

Laurel is such a professional!!! She assisted us through every stage in the sale of our home; from staging, photography, and most especially, in dealing with challenging legal advice. She was ALWAYS available and supportive. I would very much recommend her services as they are commendable.

Lisa, Monroe

I had the best experience of a lifetime. Laur3l directed me to my Inspector, my mold specialist and attorney. She was in continuous contact with me /following up and with my mortgage broker to make sure we were all on same page. I would definitely recommend her and if I sell I will definitely use her again hands down.

Margery, Middletown

Laurel was really wonderful to work with. We had contacted another realtor, prior to finding out about Laurel and the experience was not good at all. Laurel treated us with respect and professionalism from the moment we met. She really helped guide us through the entire process of selling our home, made great suggestions on what she felt we needed to do to increase the value of our home and was extremely helpful throughout the process. Her follow-up was truly outstanding, she returned phone calls and emails almost immediately. If you are looking for a top-notch professional to sell your home, you can stop looking because you have found her.

Tom, Middletown

Laurel Lustgarten is an outstanding agent. She was always available to answer any question I had. Her knowledge of the market helped to sell my house in less than a week with 5 offers, thousands above listing price. I was extremely pleased with her staging knowledge in getting the house ready to show. In fact my experience with her was so positive I doubt that any other agents that I deal with in the future will come close to her level. She is the best!

Cynthia, Washingtonville

"Laurel is professional, friendly, and always ready to answer questions or solve a problem. She made this process run as smooth and painless as possible and is there leading the way from beginning to end. Laurel knew exactly how to update the house with the least expense and it really paid off. She has a great eye for staging and knows what works! I would highly recommend Laurel! Thank you Laurel for all your hard work that you make look effortless and always accomplished with a smile! I not only have a great realtor but have also have made a good friend in the process!"

Marsha, Middletown, NY

Consistency of performance level is surely a mark of high standards and a high bar of personal expectations. And that describes the professional and personal characteristics of our longtime realtor, Laurel Lustgarten. We’ve been served by Laurel—both as buyer and seller—for six or seven years, yet she never is less than the best a realtor can be. Her standards never vary—no matter the size of the project, or the status of the real estate market. Ms. Lustgarten is highly diligent, extraordinarily conscientious, and is always reliable, caring, and great to be with. Despite the pressure that the field of real estate heaps on those who are intimately involved with it, Laurel somehow manages to always maintain her professional equilibrium and her delightful demeanor. Although her skills and reputation keep her extremely busy, Laurel will always find—no she will always make—the time to attend to her clients’ needs. I don’t know how she does it, but be assured that she does. Be assured also that Ms. Lustgarten attends meticulously to all the details of your buying or selling transaction. For Laurel, there is no thing such as an unimportant detail. Everything matters to her, and everything will be looked after with great knowledge and care.
