Laurie has lived in Colorado for over 20 years and began her real estate career in 1999 when she purchased her first investment property. She grew up living in the Midwest and attended undergraduate school in the suburbs of Chicago graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Media Communication. She continued her education upon moving to Colorado earning a Master's Degree in Counseling from Colorado State University while managing a large portfolio of residential properties in Boulder County for a local investor.
Laurie has been a licensed Broker at RE/MAX of Boulder since 2005 focusing on residential sales while also managing her rental properties. Laurie provides quality service with high integrity and is known for providing prompt and clear communication in a responsive and timely manner which is crucial in today's competitive real estate market.
Laurie has a strong grasp on understanding today's competitive real estate market and how to strategically write a contract that will win a property for her buyers. She is also determined to find "pocket listings" for her buyers (homes for sale that have not hit the open market or MLS). This gives her buyers the advantage of not competing with multiple buyers to purchase a home.
Laurie is also a strong seller's agent. Her goal is to get the best price possible for her seller. She understands the value of properly showcasing a property and therefore has a designer on her team to help guide sellers while preparing their home to go on the market. Laurie is a true expert at creatively marketing properties and understanding current conditions and marketing trends.
Laurie's sales efforts are supported by her experienced licensed transaction manager, Andi LaForme. With Andi on Laurie's team, Laurie can direct her attention on her clients while Andi efficiently and professionally handles the important documents and details the sales process requires. Laurie also has a designer who helps sellers prepare their homes for the market.
