As a vice president on the Office Brokerage team, Laura provides tenant representation, owner representation and sales to investors and owners of real estate, development consulting and land brokerage services to a wide range of clients in the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota markets.
Laura’s highly strategic process which she uses to evaluate opportunities and the market makes her an asset. Clients’ needs and objectives are met with thoughtful insight and a process in which they feel understood and supported.
Laura began her career in Texas in 2002, working for a commercial real estate developer leasing its portfolio. After moving to Minnesota in 2003, Laura began working in brokerage. In 2011, she formed her own company and represented a business as it expanded its presence in Minnesota and Wisconsin. While she advised on relocations and new construction for more than 1.5 million square feet of leased and owned space over 13 years, she provided strategic guidance as the company refreshed its branding and public image. Under Laura’s counsel, her client increased its revenue from $19 million in 1999 to $67 million in 2013.
After Laura shepherded her client through its growth phase, she continued to focus on tenant representation but with a focus on the office sector. Prior to joining Colliers in April 2020, she represented a breadth of clients including national, regional and local companies looking to secure retail, flex industrial and office spaces in Minnesota.
Laura serves as a vice chair planning commissioner for the City of Victoria. She lives in Victoria with her husband and two sons. In her free time, she enjoys spending time on the lake and long bike rides.

“Laura is dedicated to her clients and goes above and beyond what a client expects from their broker. She is great at following up on the big and little details, keeping the process moving along and is very honest. She is a people person, but also will ask the tough questions when negotiating if need be. She is a tough negotiator. A client wants someone who will represent them well and help you find what you need, which Laura does.” —Debbie Ferry, Former Senior Vice President of Real Estate, Goodwill/Easter Seals
