About Laurie Whitton
Family is one of the most important things in my life. I have a wonderful husband named Randy and one son, Matt, and 2 dogs, Maggie and Dexter. Matt just graduated from Sacramento State in Graphic design. I am proud to say he joined my business in charge of marketing and photography.
I have a passion for real estate, business, the stock market, hiking and golf when I can, family, and friends and giving back to the community.I have a degree in Economics and a minor in Accounting from the University of Utah. In my twenties I moved to the Bay Area and started my career in sales, first for an elevator company and then for several years selling for 2 major computer companies in San Francisco where I became worldwide sales leader. I received the best sales training in each organization and mastered 3 important skills that I bring to my real estate career—listening very carefully to my clients and focusing on their needs, the art of negotiating, and quick and constant follow up.
Besides my sales background, I have extensive experience in real estate. I have completed over 20 transactions of my own including several 1031 exchanges and have built custom, multi-million dollar homes. Each year I continue to be in the top 10% of Placer County, have sold over $36,000,000 in real estate and all the knowledge from 100s of transaction have contributed and aided me in providing each client first class service.
I take great pride in being very knowledgeable in all aspects of purchasing and selling residential property. I have advanced degrees in Real Estate and earned the GRI, CDPE, and CNE designations. I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, PCAR and am a Lifelong PCAR Masters Club member.
I love helping my clients! It is exciting for me to see my clients are pleased with my service and the most important thing—to know they are happy with their decisions with buying or selling their homes. I would love to help you and to make your home buying or selling a wonderful experience!
