Laura’s team philosophy, “Serving You Throughout the Seasons,” is inspired by her love of gardening in our Northwest seasons.

Through all of these seasons, the theme is the same for me and my team members: deliver incredible service with intelligence, compassion and care.” Laura delights in working with clients at every stage of life. She brings a personal understanding of acreage properties to her practice which includes all types of real estate in Maple Valley and surrounding areas.
Born in Seattle and raised in Auburn, Laura attended Doreen Bird Theatre College in England and graduated with teaching degrees in Ballet, Tap and Modern Dance. She was a professional dancer whose career allowed her to travel throughout Europe and the Caribbean. She later got into fitness, sales and business ownership prior to real estate.
Laura has lived in Maple Valley since 1995, the same year she married Mike, her very patient husband. Together they have three almost grown children, three hilarious Australian Shepherd dogs, two overfed chickens, and a really old ferret.
