The real estate market ebbs and flows but consistency and trust in your agent should comfort and guide you through the process of your transaction. I’ve been pleased to provide this level of customer service to my clients for over two decades. 

My early work as an elementary school teacher gave me the gift of patience and deep listening. After raising my family, I chose to enter the world of real estate sales and immersed myself in learning everything I could about our local markets. I enjoy working with all sorts of clients, from families making that first home purchase to those who are selling to move on to the next phase of their lives. 

I joined forces with Nancy Ross in 1995 and the Ross & Barton team has become a leader in the Westside market being named to the Real Trends list of top-producing teams. We specialize in Beverly Hills, Beverlywood, Brentwood, Cheviot Hills and surrounding areas but our work with clients has taken us all around the city and our referral network spans the globe. 

For me, it’s a true honor to meet and work with the many clients we’ve served. The relationships we create don’t end with the transaction. Nancy and I remain resources for our clients, providing recommendations to trusted vendors, keeping our clients up to date on the value of their homes, and helping them understand the market trends that may impact their investment. 

Philanthropy and giving back is an important part of my life.  One of the best things about the Los Angeles area is the opportunity to enjoy an active lifestyle. I love to cycle, hike, and run, and I use these hobbies to help me raise money for the charities I support. 

In real estate, reputation is critical and you can judge a successful agent by how many of their clients they’ve worked with over and over again. My clients are my friends and my friends are my clients, this is a philosophy that continues to guide me and inspire me to give every new contact the benefit of my experience, knowledge, and care.

Reviews

“I have nothing but praise for these two. They are exactly what anyone would want in a realtor. They were patient, thoughtful and genuinely caring about our needs and wants in a home. In the end we ended up with a home that is perfect for our growing family and it came exactly at the right time and right price, thanks to Laura and Nancy. I would not only recommend them , if I ever sell or purchase again in the area, I will use them again.”
- Magen White and Chris McPhaul
“Nancy and Laura helped us buy our home in Beverly Hills. They took the time and care to show us properties in many locations. They explained to us key characteristics of neighborhoods to consider because we were not familiar with Los Angeles having come from Canada, e.g., school boards, shopping and proximity to highways. Nancy and Laura were most accommodating and understood our requirements as we reviewed many listings and visited a large number of homes in many areas of LA. For example we were not familiar with travel times and certain house features or lot advantages. They disclosed all the needed work for the homes that we looked at; and responded to our questions in a professional, responsible and timely manner. We get many complements on our home that Nancy and Laura helped us buy. Their professional knowledge, conduct and contacts made us confident in buying our home. For example they helped us with securing finance at attractive mortgage rates; and negotiated important details on our behalf. It was a pleasure to seek their help specially that we were in Canada while searching for a home. Laura and Nancy extended assistance beyond the call including scheduling home inspections at times that agreed with our travel plans. We will buy our next home with their help and professional expertise. They have deep experience and intimate knowledge of the market, locations, and specific neighborhoods, streets and homes. We fully recommend enlisting Nancy and Laura’s help and services given what we experienced.”
- Adel Shalaby and Maha Guindi
“Nancy and Laura are consummate professionals among real estate agents. Their efficient operation is evidenced by the awesome result they achieved with the successful sale of my home. The support staff and vendors they use and refer work at the same high level of efficiency as they do. Anyone who chooses to work with Nancy and Laura is indeed both wise and fortunate.”
- Francine Peterman and Rhonda Kopulsky
“We found Nancy & Laura when they sold us our dream home. We returned to them to help us lease and eventually sell our condo. We’ve successfully recommended them to our friends. Their expertise and experience makes them an asset, their honest, trustworthy and no-nonsense approach makes them a pleasure to work with.”
- Serena Chu and Robert Minikes
We’ve now used the Ross/Barton team twice, first to buy our house 17 years ago and now to sell that same house. They recommended and executed a strategy that resulted in multiple offers from highly qualified buyers all the while minimizing any disruption to our lives. We would highly recommend them regardless of whether you’re buying or selling.”

We were thrilled with Nancy and Laura in the process of selling our house. Their professionalism, their expertise and their guidance throughout made everything run smoothly and efficiently!

Nancy and Laura are wonderful! I have worked in the Real Estate environment for over 25 years; dealing with buyers, sellers and agents daily. In a recent transaction to sell my own Westside home we chose Nancy and Laura. We could not have had better representation. They were extremely professional throughout the transaction. We were kept informed of every step and were actively involved in the decisions regarding our home. I highly recommend Nancy and Laura for your next real estate transaction.
