Originally from Milan, Italy, Laura Cresto came to Miami Beach to live in 1997. Earning her real estate license just a couple years later, she found that she was a natural fit for a profession that allows her to be an active member of the community.
Laura is a seasoned real estate professional who has been serving South Florida’s most influential and discerning clientele for more than 17 years. Her relentless drive and true passion for helping others has resulted in happy clients locally and around the globe.
Modeling her real estate service approach on a foundation of market knowledge, honesty, integrity and most of all, positive, long-term relationships, Laura has created a growing network of clients and contacts that stretches from Miami to Europe. She has extensive knowledge of the international marketplace and a passion for the beautiful luxury homes and condos that give Miami its’ world-renowned reputation. Working with some of the area’s most well-respected developers, Laura has a knack for negotiation and the expertise to effectively market both new and resale properties.
While Laura’s knowledge of the marketplace is extensive, it is dedication to her clients that truly sets her apart in the highly competitive Miami luxury real estate market. With a natural inclination to put her clients’ interests first, Laura understands that buying or selling a home is one of life’s biggest decisions and makes it a priority to guide them through the transaction with ease.
In addition to her professional life, Laura is dedicated to giving back to her community through several civic and philanthropic pursuits.

Laura’s love of real estate might only be rivaled by her love of her family and animals. The mother of two boys, Laura has been an integral part of Miami’s animal advocacy circles. She has volunteered with the Miami Dade Animal Shelter since 2009 where she has successfully facilitated the adoption of many animals, placing them in their forever homes and Underdog Foundation. She currently serves on the board for both the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), where she assists on the annual gala and ARM (Animal Recovery Mission).
