Our Story

Jeffrey Fritz and Laura Buffone discovered a strong personal and professional friendship while working at a boutique real estate firm. With similar core beliefs, values and approach to client services, they believed a successful partnership was built on a solid foundation of unique talents and skills: Jeff’s expertise in marketing, negotiations and investment strategy combined with Laura’s skills in contract administration, finance and interior design would offer their clients exceptional service and unique resources. Their partnership was official in 2007.

Jeff and Laura are innovators. With a passion for sustainability and green building, they established Jeffrey J. Fritz, Laura Buffone & Partners using technical knowledge of green practices and standards that were groundbreaking in the industry. In 2009, Jeff and Laura joined Coldwell Banker, a premier real estate brokerage firm known for its powerful local and international network. They created unique marketing and sales programs exclusively for green buildings and a number of green initiatives still in use today at Coldwell Banker. Becoming successful brokers in their community, they have been featured on ABC, Fox and NBC as real estate experts for the Westside area. They are also listed in Los Angeles Magazine and Top Agent Magazine as industry leaders. Over the past decade, Jeff and Laura’s partnership has grown to include a team of associates who share their enthusiasm and professionalism as well as a full team of support staff and a dedicated Vice Present of Marketing. Coldwell Banker has designated Laura and Jeff as ‘professional mentors’ within the brokerage to help new agents entering the field. Jeff and Laura were invited to be part of the exclusive Coldwell Banker Global Luxury brand which was a natural “next-step” as they continue to grow into one of the top luxury real estate teams in greater Los Angeles.
