A native of the Greater Hartford area, I have helped many wonderful people buy and sell their homes since 2003. Prior to my real estate career, I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Connecticut (go Huskies!) where I studied organizational communication with an emphasis on writing, advertising, mass communication and persuasion. My early work was in the field of human resources in an organized labor environment where the art of negotiation was a critical skill. Years of negotiating labor contracts, handling employee relations issues and providing organizational training provided a solid skill set that was easily transferable to the field of real estate.
I have an in-depth knowledge of the many towns I serve. Each location has its own market statistics, neighborhood nuances, and selling points. I strive to take all of these into account when preparing my overall pricing & marketing strategy and utilize a collaborative approach with all seller-clients. My marketing plan integrates an extreme online global presence along with daily prospecting with local agents and prospective buyers to provide the broadest appeal of your listing. Once an offer is received, I expertly advise my clients on the best negotiating strategy and guide them through the inspection, appraisal and closing process.
My local expertise also serves my buyer-client base well in crafting offers that enable them to get the best deal. I am most proud of the fact that the vast majority of my business comes from past clients who continue to do business with me and recommend me to the friends, family and co-workers. There is no greater compliment than a clients' trust!
My in-depth knowledge of the West Hartford, surrounding communities and specific neighborhood nuances can be helpful in finding the right place to call home. Whether a first-time buyer, relocating to the area, trading up, or downsizing...I can help. My attention to detail and client care are my greatest strengths.

|From the first moment I met Laurie, her sincerity and consideration for me shone through. During the interview process, Laurie clearly demonstrated her exceptional technological skills—an invaluable asset in today’s real estate market. There was no hesitation on her part to schedule a Realtors’ Open House just a few days later. To beautify the kitchen, she even picked up fresh flowers on her way to my house. Laurie very ably assisted me in sorting through my options when an offer came in the very next day, in addition to helping me work through the building inspection issues that arose subsequently. Through it all, Laurie was always considerate of my views and feelings. It became clear to me that Laurie is a very smart and professional Realtor who truly cares for her clients and possesses a high degree of emotional intelligence. I was very lucky to have Laurie represent me, and I recommend her most highly to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.|
|Laurie is always very friendly and helpful. She did a great job in setting up appointments to look at homes and helping me to narrow down the choices. She was also very understanding and supportive when my situation changed and I decided to rent a home rather than buy, and she helped me negotiate my lease. I will go to Laurie when I am ready to buy a home again.|
|We worked with Laurie both to sell our condo and to purchase our new house. Our condo was on the market for 10 months with a different realtor with no success. Frustrated, we contacted Laurie. She set us up with a professional home stager and photographer, ran multiple open houses, and followed up with agents for feedback about our unit. Our condo sold within 3 weeks at a price we were very comfortable with. Laurie also helped us negotiate and close on our new home, and we couldn't be happier. Laurie's knowledge of the current market is outstanding. She was always positive, and made the process of selling and buying our home enjoyable! She was fantastic to work with and was always quick to respond to our questions. I can't speak highly enough of her, and would recommend her to anyone who is serious about moving forward with a home sale or purchase.|
|From the start Laurie was honest and helpful. As a first time home buyer I had a ton of questions and Laurie was always willing to answer every one of them. Not only is she knowledgeable of all things real estate, she is caring and personable. The home buying process from our initial conversation to the final closing date was supported and made so easy by Laurie's expertise. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She is a great real estate agent and a wonderful person! A true professional!|
|Laurie was excellent to work with through our entire home buying process. She was patient as we looked at a number of houses, and her knowledge of the area was a big asset in the search. Her experience is evident as she has a strong understanding of each step of the process. Laurie was always responsive and as buyers, we felt that she always had our best interests in mind.|
|I am a believer that people come into your life for a reason and Laurie came into mine because of a referral from a close friend. Once I signed onto her webpage I immediately received a phone call and she took the time to get to know me, my circumstances and guided me throughout the process. At a time when i was starting over and didn't even know exactly what I was looking for she was patient, asked questions, tested me on my comfort level, provoked me to think and she listened to my concerns. I miss our "house hunter" days, what I learned about the process and about myself. After several months of searching, attending open houses, countless inquires I found the perfect home thanks to Laurie. Anyone in the market today would be fortunate to have her representing you and working towards your best interests.|
