Laura has lived in the Tampa Bay community since 1982. Born in Savannah, Georgia and raised in and around Boston, Massachusetts; she understands Northern sensibilities with a deep appreciation of the character of the South.
Laura’s professional focus has always been the delivery of world class customer service while focusing on her client’s best interests. Laura prides herself on the personal recommendations and repeat referrals which account for the majority of her book of business. Laura recognizes the intrinsic value of building relationships, not sales.
In addition to her real estate career, Laura has been a leader in the mortgage industry for over the past decade and has been a licensed mortgage broker since 2004. Laura’s deep understanding of all the many financing options gives her clients the ability to integrate their investment in a new home constructively and seamlessly into their portfolio. Laura is creative and persistent. When the financing markets slowed down, Laura used her mortgage expertise and bank relationships as the foundation for her work as a successful short-sale negotiator for one of St. Petersburg’s leading law firms. Laura’s move into the real estate market was only natural considering her background and experience. Laura is undeniably the whole package when it comes to picking a real estate professional.
