At age 20, Lavern learned the nuts and bolts of real estate. Because she loves a challenge, she jumped at the opportunity to participate in an 18 month on-the-job training program with Savannah Landmark Rehabilitation Project, whose mission was to restore many of the deteriorating Victorian homes in Savannah's Historical District in conjunction with President Jimmy Carter and First Lady, Roselyn Carter who were catalysts for the development of Habitat For Humanity. A female wearing a tool belt, hardhat and work boots was not common at that time. It was one of the greatest experiences of her young life. She eventually purchased several homes throughout the city.
Lavern's business career began at a small newspaper in Augusta, Georgia while attending college. After moving back to Savannah in 1987, she began as Administrative Assistant to two Recorder's Court Judges. She relocated to Atlanta in 1995 and worked as Executive Assistant at two large Real Estate firms before receiving her license in 1996. Her quest for knowledge of the industry led her to join Georgia Real Estate Investors Association.
After a friend made her an offer she couldn't refuse, she accepted a position of Executive Assistant to the President of a College in Atlanta. She learned that it was next to impossible to adequately assist her Real Estate clients on a part time basis so she began working in Real Estate full time again and has not looked back.
