Mastering Her Trade
When advising clients, Laurie Mah's main goal is
finding the perfect fit. — By Sandra Strong


As an independent contractor, Laurie Mah may hang her Realtor’s license in Dallas, but she plays an integral role in the local real estate market as she works from her home office in Ennis. “Ellis and Dallas counties are my main market areas,” Laurie stated. “I can hang my license anywhere, but I want to let everyone know I’m still here locally, as this has been my home for 10 years.”

She had a vision in mind when she decided to branch out to the Dallas area. Her goal was, and still is, to bring Dallas to Ennis. “The decision was twofold. I not only wanted to broaden my market area,” she admitted, “but I also wanted Ennis to receive the recognition it deserves and to introduce Dallasites to our small-town atmosphere.”

Before real estate, Laurie worked in a number of different careers, each with a common thread of customer service — helping other people. Her start in New York City, where she earned her B.B.A. in finance while working in hotel and hospitality, and then her move overseas to Singapore for five years afforded her the opportunity to perfect her people skills, a valuable asset in her current business. Laurie has devoted the past six years to perfecting her real estate career through earning several designations along the way: Graduate Realtor Institute, Certified Residential Specialist, Senior Real Estate Specialist and International Real Estate Specialist. “Education is very important,” Laurie stated. “With each designation comes greater knowledge of the industry.” She also attends continuing education classes annually to keep abreast of the every-changing real estate market. Laurie is so much more than a Realtor. She basically handles every aspect of the buying and selling process , whichever she is called to do. The first plan of action when working with clients is to get to know them. “As a trusted real estate advisor, I listen to their wants and needs and work a detailed plan to accomplish them,” Laurie added. “I will listen and give opinions and advice, but ultimately the client makes the final decision.” As the Realtor, Laurie may control the process, but the client always controls the decisions.

When working with clients who want to sell their home, Laurie offers a complimentary staging consultation in order to present the home in the best possible light. “It’s always in the best interest of those buying and selling to hire a Realtor,” she explained, “because they come to the table with a wealth of knowledge.” They are expert negotiators, superb navigators within the community and they offer the best resources when individuals decide to buy or sell. Bottom line, Laurie’s main goal when advising her clients is the fit. “I want a perfect fit between the home and the buyer,” she added.

Her desire to help clients uncover and solve their real estate problems is at the heart of Laurie’s business. Putting her knowledge of the industry and expertise to work, she’s able to achieve the desired results for every client. She has built her business one-client-at-a-time by striving to be a master of her trade. And yes, buying and/or selling a home really can be stress-free. How? Laurie just smiled as she said, “You just need the right real estate agent.”
