Helping you see outside the box.
Often a small change, using a dining room for an office or a den for a bedroom can make an "almost" house and "absolute yes". My design experience will help you rethink space as we tour homes.

"Laurie was a dream to work with especially in the middle of the COVID-19 lockdowns AND from a distance. When we were in town, she was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable about the area and in our search for a house. While we were working from a distance, she was willing to FaceTime us from new listings at a moment's notice. She not only helped us find a house we are extremely happy with, but she provided a very thorough induction to the area and magnet school promise, in particular."

"Laurie was superb. She displayed a professional commitment to us as her clients. She listened and guided our purchase of a perfect new home and then sold our former home. We could not have asked for more."
- Jim, The Hill, 2020
"Working with Laurie was an absolute pleasure, every issue that came up in the buying process was handled quickly and expertly. Laurie gave us good advice and saved us from a couple of pitfalls that can happen when buying a home, she even brought us lunch on moving day! Would not consider any other realtor in the future."

AvoidThe Listless Listing
A "must-read" for those who have lived in a home for more than ten years.
Are you thinking of selling a home you've lived in for a long time? There are many secrets to instantly bringing a home up to date without spending a fortune. Read my latest article on the subject.
HOUSE AND HOME
I grew up thinking all little girls drew house plans.
My grandfather was a major developer, building hundreds of homes. Real estate was as common to me as bread. At seven, I began spending summers designing dream houses...shifting windows, elevations...surrounded by pencils, drafting paper, erasers and dreams. This year, a plan I had saved for 30 years became my dream home on the Savannah River. I've loved every home we've ever owned. Whether it is your first home or your retirement dream, I'm there. I'm in. Let me deliver your dreams to your front door.
Before I was a realtor, I was a Nationally Board Certified educator
...for 28 years and a mother of three. Education was my primary concern and my husband's work allowed him to live anywhere. Columbia County offered great schools, and Richmond County had stellar magnet schools. We chose Richmond County for our children because of the unique and amazing magnet school system. I also taught at wonderful Columbia County schools that were exemplary institutions of learning. There is not just one answer or one choice. There are also wonderful private schools in the Augusta area. If you want to talk about schools and education, and the unique needs of your children? I'm your realtor!
It's YOUR world. LIVE in it.
Why Choose Me?
Whether you're selling and want the best plan for showcasing your home for that initial online exposure, or you're moving to a new house and need to find just the perfect thing, allow me to use my years of experience to give your dreams a new front door.
