Laurie (Whiting) Osborn, Realtor®, Coldwell Banker Hedges Corridor

Love to chat about real estate? I do too!

Being that I am an independent contractor, my clients are the most important thing in my business.  I strive to create a relationship with all my home buyers, sellers and investors that involve the following:

  1. Passion
  2. Loyalty
  3. Promptness
  4. Attention to detail
  5. And more!

As a REALTOR, it’s my job to help clients blend the world of attaining dreams and making informed decisions (in a timely fashion). I’ve been helping clients for more than 5 years and have loved every minute of it.

Real estate is truly a passion for me. When I was young, my family made it a habit to tour historical homes around the world. At the time, the history seemed surreal, yet intriguing.. making me drawn to know more. In all aspects of life, I have always loved opportunities to be hands on. Naturally, this developed into a career in real estate which has led me to where I am today. We built our own home in 2016. Being involved in the process of building from the ground up was a great way to get an awesome understanding of all aspects of real estate. Having the opportunity to “look into the walls” of a home is something I will always truly cherish. My passion for real estate also applies to getting you, my potential client, all that you could want and need, in a smooth transaction that meets all your goals! I treat every purchase or sale with the same attention/ethics that I would if it were my own! I also have personal experience investing and flipping homes.

In my time as a REALTOR, I’ve held my license with ONE company, Coldwell Banker Hedges Realty. The loyalty this company has for me (treats me like family) and the loyalty I have for them will always be something that I hold close to my heart. Ultimately that loyalty transfers to my clients as well. Between myself and my company, you will always have someone looking out for you! If you want to be a part of our family of happy clients/friends, shoot me a message at 319-389-2580 (or call), or email me at LaurieWhiting@cbhrealty.com, and I will be happy to give you first hand experience of the rest of the qualities I mentioned above (promptness and attention to detail).. and more! If you are considering a move in the future (even if the timeframe isn’t “now”), please reach out ASAP! In a competitive market, being prepared is KEY! There is no cost or obligation to get started. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Ask me about how the Coldwell Banker Hedges Guarantee can help you in this market!
