My Story.

BUSINESS IS IN MY DNA

When I was 6 years old I started climbing orange trees to pick fruit to sell. By the time I was 17 I was working my way through college as a title searcher.

I am lucky and grateful that I did not have to learn the value of hard work on my own. My father started out as a migrant farm worker who became a self-made real estate developer, builder, and hard-money lender.

There are many things may father and I have in common:

  • We are driven by the work, not the praise.
  • Both of us believe that our creativity abilities are endless.
  • Belief in our endless creativity gives us the motivation to keeping working on a problem until it is solved.

  • Possessing the ability to do things very well is a special skill that not everyone possesses.

  • Helping others with our special skill is our first response to a situation. It is part of our destiny.

  • Dad and I know that success is a choice that needs to be made every single day.

  • Since we both worked in land, we are completely in awe of the transformative quality of property rights.

RECENT PROJECTS.

Real Estate Broker and Portfolio Manager / MBA / BA Economics / PMC
Arcata California

There are two recent projects that are of interest to me. The first is a property that I purchased in a college town in Northern California.  The property was a long-time rental with a great deal of deferred maintenance. However, given the endless demand for housing, I found a way to cash in on the trust economy by giving tenants exactly what they want. The property is managed as a plug-n-play tenancy.

La Quinta California

The second property is in the resort/second home community of La Quinta California which is just south of Palm Springs. I made this purchase after I earned the certification as a resort and second property specialist through the National Association of Realtors®. The unit is a hotel condo that was a vacation rental (AirBnB). The property is adjacent to Old Town La Quinta and is within a few minutes to Coachella, Indian Wells Tennis Gardens, ParWest, and other elegant venues and properties.

Experience

Work Skills.

EXPERIENCE MATTERS.

Most property professionals lack a fundamental understanding of investments, investment analysis, asset allocation and portfolio management that is necessary to add value to a sophisticated real estate portfolio.
01. FINANCE.

My experience in financial services which includes real estate, eminent domain, securities advisor, and title insurance professional has provided me with a skill set that has breadth and depth.

02. MARKETING.

My success as a financial advisor is well documented in magazines, radio show transcripts, and as the subject of a published case study that focused on my ability to create a sustainable market that was impervious to changes in the economy.

03. TECHNOLOGY.

In the 1990s I began using internet technology to create a sustainable market for my services. Now I handcraft database driven web developments (LAMP) to help my business in every aspect of property management.

TECH GEEK.

The first few years after leaving my work as an educator I was a featured speaker at technology “camps”. My focus was the use of content management systems as project management and ERP sites.

JOHN BARRETT

“In all my years of business management, Laura was by far the best employee I’ve ever had. Her energy, enthusiasm, and experience set her scores above the rest. She is a dedicated team player who also maintains her individuality – a unique combination in an employee. She goes above and beyond the call of duty: constantly looking for creative ways to improve sales, customer retention, or business operations. She is savvy with technology, gifted with people, and driven to ensure her employer and teammates succeed at whatever challenge or task is presented.”

JESSE CHASE

“I’m very thankful for Laura Scroggins. Laura’s ability to connect with people and high intelligence are some of her strongest character traits. Laura’s strong work ethic and impenetrable value system make Laura a major asset to anyone and to any firm seeking outliers. Thank you Laura for being “that person” who made unbelievable influence in my life and helping to guide me in the right direction!”
