Laura Benitez has been with rennie since 2015 and became a rennie Advisor in 2016. She developed an interest in real estate, because she wanted to play a role in Vancouver’s changing landscape and was intrigued by the business of development pre-sales. Laura is honoured to be part of the important moment in her clients’ lives when they achieve their real estate goals, and she is regularly inspired by the energy of her rennie Advisor colleagues. Laura is a born-and-bred Vancouverite, who currently lives in New Westminster. “New West’s best features,” she says, “are its blend of historic and innovative. There’s over two kilometres of boardwalk to explore with my dog, a Husky named Bernie, as well as great spots like Steel & Oak brewery and the River Market to stop at.” An ideal night at home for Laura might incorporate a few of her favourite things: yoga, a cheese and charcuterie board, a glass of wine, the music of Frank Ocean, and the movie The Blind Side.
