Laura Martin has always enjoyed helping people. From her time at Messiah College, where she obtained a Bachelor’s of Science in Marketing, to her early days working for a local family, where she did a bit of everything, Laura finds value in connecting with those around her. It was only natural she began working in real estate. Laura opened her own commercial real estate firm in 2005. In 2018, she became affiliated with SVN International Corp., relaunching her firm as SVN Latus to offer commercial real estate brokerage and advisory services to the central Pennsylvania market.
Laura focuses on providing outstanding customer service, guiding her clients on all aspects of the real estate process to help them make smart, informed decisions. Laura loves getting to know her clients and matching them with properties that can assist them with reaching their highest business goals. Her door remains open to her clients long after their deal is signed. Laura believes that if you’re going to do something, you should do it well, and so she pursued designations as a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) and Certified Property Manager (CPM®). She is an expert in office, industrial, retail, flex and land.
Laura gives back to her community in many ways, recently ending a nine-year term on the board of New Hope Ministries and supporting her fellow agents in the PA/NJ/DE CCIM chapter. Every year, Laura tries to do something educational, such as traveling to a new country. She and her family live on the West Shore with her adorable dog, Brooklyn.
Since 1995, Ida has been active in the commercial real estate market providing a full range of real estate services which includes leasing, sales and investment analysis. While her primary focus is serving the industrial/flex market, she is equally adept in the office, retail and land segments.
Beginning her career as a property marketing specialist, she quickly established herself as a skilled salesperson and earned the respect of clients and colleagues. Market knowledge, experience and attention to detail are qualities that have helped maintain strong, long term relationships with local and national clients. Additionally, Ida is committed to a proactive understanding the objectives of owners, buyers and tenants in order to expedite results.
