Laurie is thrilled to be back in Real Estate! Equally excited to be a part of the (w)here Inc. Real Estate Team!
Life is fluid, dynamic and ever changing. Laurie finds this especially true in her life. As she navigates through the sale and purchase of her personal homes in varying circumstances over the years, she’s become increasingly understanding and empathetic to her Seller’s and Buyer’s personal situations and reasons why they do the same. Laurie feels it’s important to understand what’s driving their decision-making. Regardless of circumstances, her roll is to facilitate making their Real Estate transaction as enjoyable and uncomplicated as possible.
Laurie is a fourth generation native Oregonian, born and raised in Portland, the ‘City of Roses’ where her family has a long history. She’s lived outside Oregon for three years and while it was a great experience, she always called Portland ‘home’. She fully understand the draw Portland Metropolitan Area has for so many and has represented Buyer’s and Seller’s thru out Portland Metro on both sides of the Willamette River.
In addition to Real Estate, Laurie has enjoyed a 20-year career in various aspects of the Apparel Industry. Most notably at Nike. This career in and outside of Real Estate has provided understanding to effectively develop and maintain close working relationships with people of diverse backgrounds and cultures. She’ll say “relationships build and maintain a business. Any business”. Above all, Laurie is a strong negotiator and pairs that skill seamlessly with intrinsic honesty and integrity to achieve the best possible outcome. She is loyal and steadfast in obtaining goals. With her high energy and ‘get it done’ attitude, her work ethic is impeccable. Curious by nature, she enjoys the challenge of ‘creative thinking’ to identify ‘work a rounds’ to achieve the end goal whatever it may be.
Laurie has three children. A grown daughter and two active teenage boys whom she is raising on her own. Life is wonderfully busy!
