Why choose Laura for your Whistler and Pemberton Realtor?
A full time resident since 1985.
Laura knows and loves Whistler and Pemberton! Laura and Chris moved from Vancouver to spend the winter of 1985 in Whistler. After one winter and the following summer, they knew they were hooked and they called Whistler home.
In 1987 Laura was hired by Blackcomb Mountain, responsible for tracking the expenses of the largest on hill expansion to date, reporting to the President, Hugh Smythe, the Vice-President of Finance and the Vice-President of Operations.
Blackcomb Mountain had just been purchased by Intrawest and Intrawest was ready to convert this sleeping giant into a world class resort. Blackcomb Mountain’s expansion in 1987 included the addition of three high speed lifts... the Wizard, Solar Coaster, Seventh Heaven, the Horstman T-Bar, building the Horstman Hut, the Day Lodge and Kids Kamp building and the expansion of the Rendevous Lodge.
This was an exciting position and an amazing opportunity to be a part of Whistler's history.
A top producing, full time realtor since 1990.
Laura joined Chris as a full time realtor and has enjoyed success in residential sales and project marketing. Laura places her client's interest first. Her strong ethics, organization skills, creative marketing approach and attention to detail are qualities that her clients truly appreicate.
