Meet Laura.

A little insight into Laura Baeckel.

I have been helping people open doors to their new homes for over 18 years. I will help you every step of the way--from application to putting keys in your hand. My experience in both origination and operations will provide great value to you throughout the process.

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or a seasoned investor, I am dedicated to helping you find the best solution to fit your housing needs. You can have confidence during your transaction while my team and I will work closely with all parties involved to ensure a smooth and timely transaction.

I am a firm believer in giving back to my community, and am particularly passionate about animal rescue. I volunteer at several rescue organizations, and frequently foster dogs as well.

Being a native Oregonian and graduate of the University of Oregon has allowed myself, my husband and our three children to live our best lives. On weekends, you can find me hiking the famous trails across the Pacific Northwest, and spending time with my family.

I am available to answer any of your questions, and I look forward to working with you!

We're here to help you.
