A people person serving the Worcester County area for the past 21 years, Laurie Howe Bourgeois has clients say she’s a top-notch communicator who doesn’t miss a beat. “Clients seem to love my no-nonsense but fun approach,” she shares. “I tell them how it is, period.”
Prior to launching her career in real estate, Howe Bourgeois was a business owner. “I always had that entrepreneurial drive,” she says. “That drive is essential to being a successful real estate agent.” Now, she holds designations as a Certified Residential Specialist, Accredited Buyer’s Representative, Pricing Strategy Advisor and Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource.
Howe Bourgeois’ knowledge of the market and expertise, accompanied by her energy and balanced business style, propelled her to rank as the No. 1 individual Realtor in Worcester County in sold dollar volume for 2021. This past year, she also earned the rank of top-selling Realtor for closed properties in Leominster in both units and dollar volume. She also recently earned the distinction of having the highest number of sales for the entire firm of Lamacchia Realty, with an amazing 82 transactions in 2021.
While the accolades are certainly indicative of her effective approach to real estate, Howe Bourgeois says she’s an agent who genuinely cares about each and every client, and not the number of transactions, although she’s humbled and grateful for the volume she does. “In this business, it’s people first,” she declares. “The houses are second. This business has always been about the people.”
