Broker's Executive Assistant

Meet Our "Customer Care Champion"

Hi! I’m Laura, Susan’s sidekick, and right-hand woman. I keep the office running smoothly, and make sure our clients (you!) have everything you need. As a mother of two, I know how to get things done! Some even refer to me as the office “mom” at McCallion and McCallion, and I wear the title proudly.

Originally from Ohio, I just recently found my way to Southwest Florida in search of warmer weather, as so many of us do! I fell in love with Cape Coral, or “The Cape” as we call it locally. Not only was the real estate less expensive than Sarasota, where I lived previously, but the number of canal properties was intriguing, and the opportunity to live on the water was exciting!

Like many who move to Southwest Florida from the north, I am eager to try all of the fun warm-weather activities, including kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and boating! Sitting at the beach and watching the sunset over the water is still an awe-inspiring experience for me that I don’t think will ever get old. But in case it does… there are so many things to do between the restaurants, museums, gardens, and shops, that I don’t believe I could ever get bored in SWFL!


Aside from the water activities that I look forward to enjoying, I also love kick-boxing and Taekwondo! Those are my stress-relieving activities, along with landscaping and interior decorating. Nothing beats spending time with my family, including my mother, my better half Mark, and two grown kids, one in Ohio and the other in Alaska! We all love to ride ATV’s and watch football when we get together - you could say I have a knack for thrill and adventure.

With a background of 20 years in real estate and 12 years in debt collecting, I have a wide range of stories to tell! My experience in both industries has been both challenging and rewarding. But I personally love real estate, and the chance to share in the joy of someone finding their dream home or retiring here in sunny Southwest Florida.

This is what it’s all about! I am living the dream, and I’m excited to help you live yours! I look forward to seeing you in the office.

Life is better at the beach
