Laura spent more than 15 years in marketing and idea generation, five of them as Creative Division Director for CMA Marketing in Chicago. A realtor since 2005, Laura is passionate about the power of real estate as a wealth building tool, the unique relationship between artists/entrepreneurs and real estate, what real estate can do for the financial well being of the creative spirit and what creative spirits can do to transform dilapidated/rust belt real estate into thriving economic destinations in metro areas. As an artist, Laura has produced theatre and film, promoting fine art and artists across the US and more than half a dozen countries with various creative projects. She has served on the Board of Directors for Curious Theatre Company and Colorado Lawyers for the Arts and currently creates textile art taking private commissions.

Laura started her real estate team, LiveWork Denver at Your Castle Real Estate, in 2007 when she realized it was possible to combine two of her passions: working with Creatives and entrepreneurs and real estate.
