About Laura Norwalk Bendelius

Buyer Success Team Realtor Associate ·
Laura Norwalk Bendelius

Laura and her family moved to Morris County 12 years ago, to be near her husband’s family, while they raise their two daughters. With an MBA from the Yale School of Management and a 20-year career building her own private client business in luxury fashion sales, Laura’s passion for building relationships and her business acumen translates well to helping her clients find their dream homes.

Since Laura did not grow up in NJ, she relates to her clients who are moving her from outside the area, like she did. Her focus is on helping clients find homes within an hour of the city. Having grown up the Midwest, she found it daunting to learn about the area and different towns and communities. So, she always encourages her clients, whether from the city, or if moving locally, to take a town tour. She loves hearing her clients’ thoughts about the different neighborhoods they drive through and learning their priorities (whether walk to train, a large yard, what number of bedrooms, proximity to schools, etc.), so that she zeros in on their wants and finds the home for them. Additionally, she regularly connects clients with friends in the different communities, so they may get additional questions answered. Finally, she encourages them to eat out in each town they are considering. By educating her clients and giving them the experiences and tools to choose the best town for their family, Laura’s clients have been happy with their decisions.

Once the search is narrowed down to a couple of towns, Laura educates her clients on the current real estate market in that community. She shares her connections with mortgage brokers, local real estate l

Once the search is narrowed down to a couple of towns, Laura educates her clients on the current real estate market in that community. She shares her connections with mortgage brokers, local real estate lawyers, inspectors, and service providers (architects, contractors, roofers, etc.) with her clients and helps her clients have a smooth transaction. Buying a home is stressful, and since the stress doesn’t end after closing, Laura continues to help clients with their home needs to ensure a great transition. She knows that clients aren’t simply buying a home, they are looking to build a life. Personally, Laura loves spending time with her husband and two girls. Whether cheering them on at a dance recital or on the soccer field, she loves spending time with them. Laura has gotten involved in her children’s schools, her church and her community. She is an avid tennis player and makes time to do that in between her clients and her family commitments. She has built a great life in NJ and would love to help you do that, too.Read Less

We were extremely impressed by Laura. She quickly became familiar with what we were looking for in our house search so she was able to screen houses for us. Given that we are two professionals with two toddlers and limited time this was a huge help to us. We worked with Laura for a year before we found our dream home. Throughout that time she was very professional and exceptionally responsive. One of her greatest strengths is her excellent communication skills. She understands the market well. On purchasing our home Laura has been a wonderful resource of recommendations from schools to tradesmen. We give Laura our highest recommendation.Read Less

We can't praise Laura highly enough- she was just wonderful. We had to move from a home of many years to anywhere in a 25 mile radius, had absolutely no familiarity with New Jersey nor really any clear idea of what we wanted but were also terribly demanding and uncompromising in terms of what didn't want. Laura was patient, helpful , incredibly responsive and a tremendous resource when it came to advice including finding highly skilled contractors who helped us evaluate what we could or could not reasonably do to a property. Again, highest recommendation possible.Read Less

We were looking for our first house for over a year, then we started working with Laura and within 6 weeks we closed on our dream house. Even in this crazy market she was positive, listening to what we wanted and didn't want, and guided us through the each step of the process. Laura is super communicative and we wouldn't be moving into our dream home on our dream town (Maplewood NJ) if it wasn't for her!Read Less
