Spending vacations with the family exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains, waterfalls, music & theater venues was always a summer highlight for Laura, her daughters & husband. As the trips became more frequent, Laura & her husband, Bruce, found the quaintness of Brevard simply idyllic and invested in a home in Connestee Falls. Though their ties to the Atlanta area still exist, Brevard is where they have called home for 15 years.
Laura attended Emory University for Liberal Arts and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Georgia State University. Through the years, Laura’s diversified background includes many leadership positions and community services. Being a real people person, Laura’s heartfelt passion is volunteering. Such local efforts include spearheading the inaugural fundraiser, themed Mardi Gras Benefit, for the Transylvania County chapter of the American Red Cross as well as significant involvement with the Hospital Foundation, Hospice & Performing Arts.
Having been the Director of Events for FlyLady in Brevard since 2005, Laura still managed to be “soccer” mom in various athletic activities for her daughters, Ashley & Jessica. Multi-tasking is more than an adjective to Laura. When working with Sellers or Buyers, Laura is focused on their objectives and accomplishing their goals. Laura’s vast knowledge of the area coupled with her marketing & communication skills is a true asset for owners wanting to sell their homes. Likewise, her tremendous organization, computer & follow-up skills assures Buyers she is working in their best interest.
Being passionate & dedicated in all her ventures, Laura found a match in Berkshire Hathaway | Great Smokys Realty. This company resonates with Prestige, Integrity & Trust, says Laura. “It’s important to be part of an organization that is well respected in the Industry and, for me, there was no other choice. Purchasing a home for yourself and/or family is one of the most significant investment decisions an individual ever makes. The wealth of technology, marketing tools, International & Global exposure is second to none.”
