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. 


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.
