A passionate and driven individual, Laurie strives to be personable and relatable with her clients, and to provide the best service possible.

She credits her career success to always providing quality client service and never giving up.
Raised in Brooklyn, New York, Laurie currently splits her time between Seattle and Lacey. She and her significant other have been together for over 14 years. Together they have a Labrador puppy named Zayda (who keeps them very busy!). When she’s not spending her free time playing with her dog, Laurie enjoys biking, watching old movies, and travelling to visit her family in Arizona.
