She has achieved her success by fostering lasting relationships with her clients by understanding that their needs come first.

Laura is a true expert in all facets of buying and selling real estate in an ever changing business. Service is her highest priority and that is why she started the TOPP Chicago Real Estate, a team within the Berkshire Hathaway Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago family in Lincoln Park. Together she and her group of highly accomplished professionals partnered with a powerhouse company to bring cutting edge technology and innovative marketing forums including social media campaigns to reach the perfect audience for our clients.

We take that stress away by reading the market, reporting that information and implementing new strategies to achieve our common goal.”

Laura’s childhood passion, competitive figure skating, is worth mentioning due to the dedication and determination required for that sport. Those qualities now transcend into her day to day commitment to her clients and her team which is why you want to work with the TOPP.

Patrick is fluent in all facets of the buying and selling process from assisting buyers with finding the right home to helping a seller ready their home for market. Patrick has a very creative eye that not only helps his sellers conceptualize what they need to do in order to get top dollar for their home, but also helps his buyers visualize what their new space could be with a little TLC. He is very results driven; knowing how to play both sides of the field in order to get his clients the best deal – when on the listing side, knowing how to price efficiently for sale while maximizing profit and getting the best deal for his clients when representing a buyer. Patrick’s dedication to helping his clients achieve their real estate goals has quickly earned him the truth and respect of everyone he works for.

Michigan by birth and Chicago by choice. Patrick has been a resident of Chicago for almost 6 years and his incredible geographical wit has already made him an expert of the city and suburbs.

In Patrick’s (very rare) spare time he enjoys traveling, wine, dining out with friends, spending time with his nephew, skiing and running along the Lake Shore.

Doug Stachowiak

In my many years of corporate real estate experience, I have always worked for boutique consulting practices with some of the most talented professionals in the industry. The Topp Chicago Real Estate Team at Berkshire Hathaway Koenig Rubloff is no different – skilled, proficient, and experienced.

Leasing, purchasing, or selling is an emotional decision, and one best made when the client is confident all opportunities have been exhausted or priced to sell based on the most recent available market data. The real estate decision is a process – how do I get from many, to the few, to the one. Most of the work is done up front by clearly understanding the client’s needs. I have successfully lead clients through this process multiple times with high regard for a positive client experience.

Please contact me today and let me assist you with your real estate needs. I look forward to working with you!
