What products or services do you offer companies or individuals?

#ThisGirlLovesRealEstate! Laurie offers full service residential real estate services to individuals and developers throughout the Triangle, Triad, and Sandhills areas. In a purchase, very briefly speaking, this includes helping you find a home, negotiating an offer, coordinating inspections, negotiating repairs, communicating with the lender and ensuring the best fit lender for your situation, managing your closing and many other details in between. In selling your home, this includes pricing your home to sell, finding a buyer, negotiating the sale price, negotiating repairs, communicating with the buyer-side, managing your closing as well as other full-service items including but not limited to professional photography, placing the home on MLS (potentially multiple depending on location), advertising on, Zillow, Trulia, Facebook, Instagram and countless other websites, sign placement in yard, hosting open houses, recommendations for prep work such as staging, and any interior or exterior improvements.


Because of Laurie's Workforce Housing Specialist certification, she can also offer first responders, law enforcement, healthcare workers, nurses, teachers, educational workers, non-profits, and other professional fields who qualify $1,000 toward closing costs that does not have to be repaid.


What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Becoming a Real Estate Broker/REALTOR® is probably one of Laurie's proudest accomplishments (other than being a Mama of two boys)! She took a huge risk in leaving a “9 to 5” career in the financial industry to pursue her real estate dream of essentially working for herself. Laurie dove right in and after two full years became a Top Producer within her firm. She has gone above and beyond to get additional educational designations to better serve her clients, including Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI), Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA), At Home With Diversity (AHWD), Workforce Housing Specialist (WHS), and e-Pro.


Do you have 1-2 business tips that you feel may be helpful to new or existing businesses?

Laurie says don’t wake up with regret of what you couldn’t accomplish yesterday; Wake up thinking about what you will be able to achieve today.


Real Estate Tip: One of the most common misconceptions Laurie gets is that she only services the area her firm is located and only sells their listings…Absolutely NOT! Laurie is licensed throughout the state of NC and can assist you with ANY home listed on the market. She will travel within one hour of Pittsboro (or more by request). Additionally, through her networking system, she can find you a REALTOR® in an area that she does not service and get you set up with a perfect fit!


Is there anyone that you would like to recognize that played a key role in the success of your business?

Laurie would like to thank her clients, of course, because her success builds from their satisfaction! The greatest compliment Laurie can receive is referrals from her clients, lenders, colleagues, family, and friends.
