Before Real Estate- Life was "Concierge" by Nature ...
Hotel Experiences at Sheraton El Conquistador, Lowes Ventana Canyon Resort, Four Season Olympic Hotel Seattle, my role ~ Hotel Concierge. What does a Concierge do? Helping people move in a new environment, consult, share, teach, point them to the right direction! Most importantly, selling the city to tourist who want to have the Old Pueblo experience!
I've also owned my own retail business, partnered with my husband for several years. We catered and sold fine wines, we called it " The WineRack ". Today, On top of Real Estate I am also a proud 6 level Superhost to an Airbnb in Oro Valley called Oro Valley Retreat (enjoy my testimonies) !
During the early years, I stepped back and became a hands on mom for my daughter's childhood ~ a proud PTA mom. I signed with Long Realty during the frenzy when real estate was in the height of the boom. During the course of the times the sense of home was important, and community activities. I am selling not only a house but a lifestyle. I came to Tucson in 1991 (28 years ago) and seen it grow! I realized my knowledge of real estate entwined with my life as a concierge (servicing the community and selling the town) as well as family importance blended in the harmony of my years of marketing and negotiating skills has been very helpful to the newcomer! It is undoubtedly a peoples business.
People helping people getting to where they are going ~ has been fun to watch unfold!
Home is where you hang your hat my uncle always says! From the Skylands of the Philippine islands, to the Canadian Rockies. Never to forget the love of the Evergreen State, you will always find smiles here where the sun always shines in the Old Pueblo! A Diamond in the Rough... I invite you to join me and allow me to show you the beauty of the Old West!
Oh, by the way...Welcome Home! ~ laura ~
