I have always had a love of homes, from the time I was a small child, I would daydream about what a house might look like inside as I walked by. Curious to see how other people and cultures lived. This curiosity grew into a passion for architecture, home interior design, renovations etc. Well before HGTV was on 24/7 in most homes, I studied Real Estate- finally deciding to take the plunge as a professional. I am proud to say I have held my Real Estate license for 10+ years since April, 2006. I joined a local Developer and Builder in January of 2006. From my first development, " Bluestone" in Cleveland Heights, Ohio and also pitching in at Rockport Square" in Lakewood, Ohio while studying for my Real Estate License examsfor my exam. Through the process my skill set was enlarged to include collaboration with Building and Inspection Departments, Architectural firms, Contractors, even the U.S. Postal service to name streets and apply proper addresses to future homes.
When I left development I had a vast tool kit of experience, which I believe translate back to sellers who have decided it is time to move on, and to buyer's who have decided it is time for them to move in! My clients wants and needs have taken me into 4 different counties. Cuyahoga, Geauga, Summit, Lake. I have successfully transacted everything from Bank owned foreclosure investment properties to Luxury homes! New construction to Century homes, Single family to Multi family. First time buyers to empty nesters. From Lakewood, Detroit Shoreway, Ohio City, Tremont and Downtown to the villages of Chagrin Falls, Hudson. North to Mentor, Wickliffe, Willoughby, south to Solon, Northfield, Hudson, Brecksville and Akron. And ofcourse, my beloved Heights neighborhoods, where I grew up and reside today. I have placed many stars on the Greater Cleveland area map, let me place yours next!

Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity
When we started looking for our first home we both wished that we had had a mother or father, aunt or uncle or some relative that was involved in real estate that would guide us with honesty and care. Laura proved to be just that person, she treated us like family and nearly one year since we couldn't possibly be happier.
