I grew up in Northern Virginia and have been helping clients in the Washington, DC – Metropolitan area accomplish their real estate finance goals for over 20 years. During that time, I have guided my clients toward the celebratory goal of owning a home and/or reaching additional real estate goals through refinancing. With my experience in real estate finance, I am uniquely qualified to deliver on my mission to educate each individual client regarding the alternatives available to meet their objectives, and to provide first-in-class service from day one of the process.

I work to ensure the highest level of timeliness and communication as I work with each new homebuyer. It is of the utmost importance to provide the highest level of customer service and make certain that each and every new homebuyer is informed of every option, every step of the way while ensuring they have access to the best rates, lowest costs, and fastest turn-times.

"Laura was amazing! She walked me through my entire homebuying process. She was always willing and ready to answer any and all of my questions or concerns (and as a first time home buyer I had a lot!) she is kind, patient, understanding and flexible! She was very transparent in our conversations and she was super easy to communicate with! If your looking for someone who will work hard, is honest and enjoys what she does please please do not hesitate to work with Laura!"

"Laura is extremely knowledge and professional. She was available at any time to answer questions we had about the process. The process went smoothly thanks to her and our agent. I would highly recommend her to anyone, especially first-time home buyers. This process can be stressful and intimidating; however, she does a wonderful job at ensuring every step is thoroughly explained."

"Our experience with refinancing our house with McLean was completely different than our prior experiences with large banks and credit unions. With our prior refinancing scenarios, I would spend a substantial effort pinging and following up to ensure that our refinancing was done in a timely manner, which was very frustrating.We were totally amazed with Laura’s execution, speed of service, and professionalism. She reached out to us on evenings and weekends and worked to make our refinance happen in a quick manner. She also provided an awesome rate for our 10 year refinance. Laura’s great with communicating and organizing all the moving pieces in the mortgage process (title company, banks, etc). In the future, Laura (McLean) will be getting all of our business, she really did a stellar job and is super responsive.Our only regret is that we only started working with Laura now and not several years ago."
