From Her Unique Name to Her Unrelenting Drive,
Laurel Schiavoni Is Never Content with “Business as Usual.”
There’s an old saying, “Never rest on your laurels.” In other words, never be satisfied with your latest accomplishments. This saying and philosophy fittingly apply to local businesswoman Laurel Schiavoni. A driven and dynamic individual, Laurel is always pushing herself to excel and improve on whatever task or responsibility she undertakes. Laurel is her own biggest competitor and she’s always searching for ways to test her inner mettle and enrich her own life as well as the lives of her family and community. Whether she’s tackling a daunting acting role at a local theater, raising money for a political fundraiser or helping her clients with their important investments, Laurel simply raises the bar in everything she does.
An Ideal Home
With a “life is too short for anything less” philosophy and a firm belief that "You can live your dreams,” Laurel constantly aims for the stars. She’s the type of individual who also believes that you can always do something better and thrives on tirelessly working to achieve the goals she sets for herself. A perfect example was the exhausting search for the perfect home for her family home. Historic homes happen to be her passion, and she decided early in life that she wanted a brownstone farmhouse like the one she was raised in. Because she's a purist who wanted original finishing as well as acreage to savor the great outdoors, Laurel’s search spanned 20 years and seven counties. Ironically, she found the perfect home on the very same road as the house she grew up in. But that’s just Laurel. She knew that her persistence and drive would eventually pay dividends.
Connecting with Family and Nature
Laurel’s favorite pastimes include running in the woods with her two dogs, Henry and Cinnamon, and participating in drama and acting, often with her local church group. She and her husband, Walter, also enjoy attending their three children’s extracurricular school activities. Watching the dogs chase ducks in the pond, flush deer out of the woods and chase each other through fresh snow are things the entire family enjoys. Laurel also recently started a wine tasting group after developing an interest in fine wine.
The Pursuit of Excellence
Perhaps where Laurel’s pursuit of excellence is most apparent is in her thriving career as a real estate professional. Never satisfied with “business as usual” or “resting on her laurels,” Laurel is always looking for innovative ways to help her clients, whether they’re buying or selling a home.
