Laura measures her success on the long-term relationships she builds with her clients as they trust her expertise to find the right property or buyer to meet their needs. 


Prior to Real Estate, Laura’s career in the travel industry led her to an executive level position at the largest vacation rental management company in the country. There she learned the ins and outs of the short term rental business and how to analyze investment opportunities. She can offer a wealth of tactical advice in maximizing the rental potential for both long-term and short-term investment properties. 


Laura has personal experience with renovations and new construction through working closely with her husband who owns a custom home building company. She has the vision to see a home's potential, and her network can connect buyers to the right contractors or design teams to bring their dreams to life.


Laura is a native Austinite and she has personally experienced many of the unique neighborhoods in Austin and all they have to offer.  Laura understands the challenging process of relocation and can help buyers identify the right neighborhoods in this thriving city. Laura has lived in New York City, Los Angeles and London, but as a third generation Texan, Austin always beckoned her home. 


Personally, Laura has a passion for travel and visited over 60 countries while collecting good stories that are best shared over a bottle of wine. She loves paddle boarding, wake surfing, Longhorn games and hiking with her husband Lindsay and dog Lexie.


Laura is the skilled negotiator, knowledgeable resource and advocate that you want representing you. Whether you are a first time buyer, relocating to Austin or you’d like to put your money to work in an investment property, Laura would love to help you meet your goals.
