I am an integral part in the success of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nutshell Realty which ranked 8th among 150 active firms within the Hudson Valley Catskill Region MLS.  Nutshell’s 2017 volume was $36.2 million from 141 sales in Ulster and Dutchess Counties.  My 2017 results are exceptional and rank me on 4th position among 580 producing agents in our area. 

I serve on several New York Association of Realtor (NYSAR) state committees, as well as chair of UCBR's strategic plan committee.  I have been awarded an Ulster County Board of Realtors Top Producer award every year since 2004 and again in 2017 earned recognition by the BHHS Real Estate's Leading Edge Society which identifies Top Producers in the Berkshire Hathaway Network.  

Part of my success is related to my strong commitment to the community.  I serve as a board member of the Mohonk Preserve as well as SUNY Ulster's Foundation and I am a member of the Rondout Valley Business Association.   This community service, coupled with ongoing support of the Rondout Valley Growers Association, The Episcopal Church of Christ the King in Stone Ridge, Rondout Valley Food Pantry and other like organizations compliment the networking and marketing that has been a key factor in my real estate achievements. 

My professional career has taken many turns from critical care nursing, to medical sales and marketing, to real estate since 2002.  There are some clear similarities in the industries in that it's all about helping people!  I equally enjoy working with sellers and buyers of real property throughout all of Ulster and Dutchess Counties.  I take your goals and objectives very seriously, and will work diligently to help you achieve them.  Thank you for your continued support.

Laurel knows how to get the job done. We had been frustrated after trying to sell our house for a year with two different real estate agencies, without success. Laurel was recommended to us by two different friends and proved to be the right choice. She was straight forward with us in her assessment of what we had to do to get our house to sell. She helped us to arrive at an asking price that she believed was fair for the current market. Her staff took great photos and got them up on MLS listing right away. Buyers started to take more interest in the house and within a few weeks we had an offer that eventually led to the sale. We highly recommend Laurel without reservations.
