Laurie has been joyfully working with Properties of The Villages for 15 years.

Laurie is one of few native Floridians! She was born in the Miami area during the Bay of Pigs/Cuban Missile crisis, and due to the uncertainty of that area, her family moved to Jacksonville. After college at Vanderbilt the University of Michigan, Laurie returned to her beloved Florida and has remained here through three different careers advertising, teaching and real estate sales with The Villages.

Laurie is a parent to the most spoiled canines on the planet — Reese and Ava, sweet Chocolate Labradoodles, Zoe, an amazing Bernedoodle and Lola a crazy Red Labradoodle. Laurie’s husband John is a very tolerant man! She also has 4 amazing step children, who are bravely making their way through the world, and doing incredible things.

When Laurie has free time she enjoys painting, yoga and jewelry making, but most of all the incredible social experiences that this community offers.

In the course of 15 years at The Villages, Laurie has had the privilege of making over 400 families very happy with either new or pre-owned homes in The Villages. She works with both buyers and sellers in making their Villages dreams come true. Laurie enjoys the challenge of each side of the real estate deal.

“I had never worked in real estate prior to working for Properties of The Villages. No other community can compare with what The Villages offers, in the terms of lifestyle and amazing home selections. There is no substitute for working with genuinely happy people, day in and day out, I can’t imagine doing anything else!”
