Hi! I’m Laurie deVegter.
Some folks call me LDV.
My background in design, real estate, and development has been a journey of curiosity, creativity, and adventure!
I fell into real estate in my mid-20’s as friend after friend asked me to look at houses to purchase with them. My background in historic preservation helped make my friends more comfortable and I could point out possibilities. As it became clear that I had a knack for renovations, I realized how much I really enjoyed the creative process. The entire process became so invigorating so I got my real estate license!
As a Realtor, I have over 14 years experience in a multitude of scenarios. These include working on site for Atlanta-based high rise developer, Novare Group, for a national spec home builder during the economic downturn in Savannah, working with brokers to get homes staged and selections made, and building my own small cottage homes from the ground up. I have been incredibly lucky to have these wide experiences in my career!
Somehow along the way I got picked up to work as a market analysis on an HGTV show (“Bang for Your Buck”). After this experience, I ended up creating a full service vacation rental management company. By fully staging clients’ homes and managing them, I was not only able to help get underwater mortgages paid but we were able to sell for profit once the market improved.. The value-add that their homes possessed after their “AirBnB transformation” helped them maintain ownership of the home and gave me immesasurable satisfaction.
I have utilized my background and experiences to literally build my small “cottage industry” (pun intended). I am still chasing small developer dreams of building a cottage court — there is always something to look forward to in this business!
Let my insight, passion, and creativity work for you!
