More about Isabelle Laub
Isabelle’s significant achievements as a creative entrepreneur in the design industry give her a distinct advantage in the real estate business. She has an innate ability to reimagine your home and position it to achieve its maximum value using a keen, cutting-edge approach. Highly intuitive, she implements change using bold, fresh ideas to showcase your property’s greatest assets. For buying clients, this translates into a major time-savings as she uses this insight to hone the search and match you with those properties most ideally-suited for your needs. Oftentimes her clients select the first property she shows to them.
Motivated by a competitive and ambitious spirit (a former USCF Women’s Cycling champion), Isabelle is a natural-born leader and athlete. She is as passionate about her work as she is about her play; her favorite activities include skiing, tennis, yoga, cycling, hiking and playing with her two Persian cats.
Isabelle has an extensive background in Interior Design & Interior Architecture and founded her eponymous interior design firm focusing on high-end residential in San Francisco. She previously founded, designed and directed two cutting-edge women’s apparel lines which she sold to Nordstrom, Barney’s New York, Macy’s and numerous boutiques across the USA; she was singled out as one of the “Top Three Designers to Watch” by WWD. She was honored to be selected as National Finance Co-Chair for Senator John Kerry’s 2004 U.S. Presidential campaign with her late-husband, prominent attorney Arnold Laub. She most recently taught a required course at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco, “The Business of Fashion Design” and is an Allied member of the ASID (American Society of Interior Designers).
A San Francisco resident for 31+ years, Isabelle lived in an historic home in Pacific Heights with her late husband for 2 decades before moving to Southern Marin. She is very familiar with the upkeep required in home ownership as well as maintaining an historic home. Now living just 12 minutes outside of San Francisco, she is over-the-moon about the warmer climate, breathtaking vistas and more relaxed lifestyle that Marin offers. Isabelle easily maintains her rich social & cultural connections in the city due to its close proximity but is thrilled to call the Riviera-like setting of Southern Marin County “home”.
A fourth-generation New Orleanian, Isabelle descends from a family of judges and attorneys (including her great-grandfathers, the longest-serving State Supreme Court Chief Justice in the USA and the Attorney General of Louisiana); a Builder/Developer father, and assorted entrepreneurs, brokers and artists. Her family moved to Boulder, Colorado when she was 9 and maintained a second home in Aspen which fostered her passion for skiing, cycling and hiking, as well as her love and appreciation of animals and the outdoors.
