About

Laurie Marzano
Broker/REALTOR®

As a Broker/Realtor® in the Lake Norman and Charlotte region, I have a strong passion and desire to make your selling or buying experience a positive one! I grew up ‘in the military’ and spent four years in the Air Force after obtaining my degree in Computer Science and Commission in the Air Force from Ohio University. As a result of this background, I understand all the details and intricacies surrounding a relocation, whether it be from another country, another state, or just around the corner. Finally, after living in several states, I have found Mooresville and the Lake Norman area to be “home”. Aside from my familiarity with the moving and relocating process, I have found my place in Real Estate after my relocation to the Lake Norman area in 2006 and beginning to invest in Real Estate. This has provided me with a solid foundation to help investors who may be in pursuit of one or more rental properties in this flourishing area. After working in Real Estate for several years I decided to expand and start a team – The Marzano Advantage offering Results that MOVE You!

My strong communication, project management and negotiating skills were developed as a Professional Services Consultant & Project Manager in the IT industry for over 20 years before moving into Real Estate. With that professional background in Software Consulting, I feel that I am a natural at Real Estate Consulting and have a great philosophy about managing the sale of your home like a project with set expectations and a definitive well-defined timeline. As a Buyer’s Agent, I work with my clients to determine their specific wants and desires to find the perfect home and negotiate a sound deal as do my team members Debbie Mullins & Shellie Rhodes. Debbie and Shellie both serve buyers in NC and SC. They have adopted my philosophy for customer service and they don’t stop until the job is done. In my past I was recognized in the software and IT industry by Fortune 500 companies for consistently demonstrating the “Customer-First” attitude which is one of the fundamentals of The Marzano Advantage team.

Any of my past clients will tell you that my honesty, integrity, patience and dedication is paramount when working with them. Additionally with my business aptitude and can-do attitude, your experience listing your home or buying a home with me will be positive and rewarding. Whether you are working with Debbie Mullins, Shellie Rhodes or myself, you will be sure to appreciate our 30+ years in Real Estate and our knowledge of the area where you will experience The Marzano Advantage.

The Marzano Advantage is known for Results that MOVE you!  Whether you are buying or selling, we pride ourselves on making it a smooth and efficient process from start to finish.  Communication is key, both listening and proficiently explaining the details of the transaction – but results speak volumes!  Our experienced team will work closely with you to satisfy your real estate goals.

When listing your home with The Marzano Advantage, you will experience the flow of an effective, proven process for preparing your home to list and getting it on the market to get it sold.  Whether you are downsizing, up-sizing, relocating or selling investment properties, you will be very satisfied with your experience.

If you are buying, our experienced team of agents are here to serve you with different areas of expertise from building/new construction, to condos to single family purchases.  Our experience on/around Lake Norman with setbacks, septics, lake & dock rules etc is invaluable to streamlining your purchase of a lake property.  Additionally if your search creeps into South Carolina, don’t worry – we are licensed there as well.
