Your Kentucky Realtor

Laura B

CENTRAL KENTUCKY IS MY HOME…

….and it has ALWAYS been my home. I have lived in three of Kentucky’s five geographic regions, so I have a sharp knowledge of many local real estate markets. I have sold 18 properties in 11 counties this year and I guided the relocation of people from New York, Arizona, Michigan, Iowa, and California. I work with buyers, sellers, and investors. I have experience with first time home buyers, investment properties, cash offers, FHA, USDA, VA, and conventional lending. I have sold raw land, duplexes, mobile homes, and luxury townhomes. Work with me and experience a breath of fresh air in an industry that can be stuffy and rigid. I love what I do and it is evident from the moment we meet.

Personal Life | Kentucky Y'all

I grew up riding my Big Wheel in the middle of the road and cliff diving into Lake Cumberland. I am a wife to a wizard, a mom to a gentle giant, and the daughter of a spunky woman who taught me how to drive a stick shift. I am an artist, a baker, a road tripper, and just might spontaneously break out into song.

Work History | Soft-Skill Building

I learned many valuable lessons in 20 years of working in restaurants. From the hostess stand to the general manager's office, I learned how to prioritize tasks, diffuse tough situations, time management, and rapid problem solving. Later, in HR I learned the importance of listening first before being heard. And ten years in the public school system from the classroom to the district office, I understood the value of solid data, empathy for people whose lives were much different than my own, and walked the fine line between being tenacious and sensible at the same time.

Professional Philosophy | Not a salesman, a salesfriend

I choose honesty and market research over high-pressure sales tactics. I am not afraid to tell you what you need to hear instead of what you want to. If I don't feel like I can help you reach your financial goals, I would rather turn you down then rather than let you down later. And I will never try to sway buyers into a property they will regret later, I want to be able to say hello in the grocery.

on more than one occasion, that I am the “realtor people should work with if they really don’t like realtors” and that I don’t have “commission breath.”

We had an unbelievable experience with LB with the sale of and purchase of our new home. She helped us come to terms with the sale of our home, went out of her way to help us move out and into our new home. Her keen interest in a successful out come for us was unwavering throughout this process. Her integrity with the buyers and their agent (at the last minute) was priceless. She stood with us throughout.

Life

Kentucky Ya’ll

I am a Kentucky girl – I grew up near Lake Cumberland, moved to Lexington in 1995, had a little stint in Powell County and fifteen years in Winchester – I am  pretty much a local wherever I go. Central Kentucky is home.

Professional

Ideology

A patient, quick thinking, problem solver

My professional career spans a few sectors but they share one common thread – customer service. Skills such as quick thinking, decision making and task prioritization paired with  patience and active listening allowed me to bring creative solutions to complex problems.

Future

Goals

A little unconventional, a lot flexible

I actually listen when you share your real estate plans, and I will go way beyond any professional to ensure you are pleased in the end, because that is just who I am. 

To say that all my previous experience prepared me for what I am doing now is an understatement.

A little unconventional,
a whole lot flexible

If you’ve been watching ‘Million Dollar Listing’ or ‘Shahs of Sunset’ and have that image of a real estate agent in your mind – my thick Kentucky accent, occasional use of swear words, and quirky sense of humor will nip that right in the bud. I don’t own a pant suit or a briefcase (more of a blue jeans and backpack kind of girl), and my clients’ interests and goals come before my own. I’m not here to work for free, and shouldn’t be asked to, but there’s more than one way to butter a biscuit when it’s dry.

Need the proceeds from this sale to buy your next property? Let’s talk about a flexible commission structure that lets you keep some of the money that would have been used marketing your property.

Do you get the willies just thinking about hiring the wrong agent for the job and being stuck with them for three to six months? It doesn’t have to be that way. Ever heard of a Performance Based Contract? Most haven’t.

Let’s meet, talk, shake hands, and let’s make a deal happen.
