Get to Know Laurie Schwandt

Real estate is not just my job . . . it’s my passion! I enjoy the opportunity to work with sellers and buyers in and around the Metro Detroit area as they make the step towards a first time purchase, upsizing, downsizing or relocating.  I see the fulfillment in their eyes as we finally find “the house” to call home.  Buying a home is one of the most important purchases a person will ever make, so a positive working relationship is not only my commitment, but a promise! This partnership helps empower my clients to make an informed, confident real estate decision. Whether working with a first time buyer, seller, investor, distressed property owner or someone who needs a change, I am there to help from beginning to the end.

I am a full-time Real Estate Professional and a Certified Home Stager with a SFR, SRS and home staging certification.  What does that mean?  My SFR designation allows me to assist those who are in need of a short sale or foreclosure assistance. This can be a very stressful time, so having a knowledgeable agent on your side helps to alleviate some of that burden.  It also requires much detail and follow-up which I am very diligent to accomplish. As an SRS designee, I am a seller’s representative specialist. This experience gives me the advantage to negotiate the best deal for my selling clients while keeping all parties to the transaction engaged and informed. With my home staging certification, I can help you prepare your home to stand out from the rest. Studies show that a well-staged property will sell much more quickly and at a higher price point than one that is not staged.

As a mother of two, you can be assured that my multi-tasking capabilities, knowledge and experience are an important part of my business plan. Having raised my family for the last 11 years in Novi while they attended Walled Lake Schools, I am very familiar with the Lakes Area. Walled Lake, Wolverine Lake, Wixom, Commerce Township and the surrounding areas have been my stomping ground and a comfort level for me.

RE/MAX Classic is the #1 RE/MAX Office in Southeast Michigan with locations in Novi, Bloomfield Hills, Canton, Farmington Hills and Milford.  With the innovative marketing and technology experts I am privileged to work with, our social media platform is the key to connecting with the highest number of buyers and sellers in the Wayne County, Oakland County and Livingston County areas.

Always know . . . you will get “The Lifestyle you want, with METRO Detroit Realtor, Laurie Schwandt!”


My SFR certification (short sale and foreclosure resource) gives me the knowledge to work with you through a short sale or foreclosure situation with attention to detail. Whatever scenario you face, I want to help you achieve the goal that fits your own personal needs.

As an SRS (seller's representative specialist), it is my job to pay attention to detail from the beginning of a real estate transaction to the end. My expertise will get the job done effectively and efficiently. Weekly updates are the most important communication tool I use with all of my buyers and sellers.

As a certified home stager, I value the opportunity to give a free staging analysis to help my sellers display their home in the best possible way to obtain the highest dollar amount in our very competitive real estate market.



I like to differentiate my services from other agents. Did you know that 92% of all buyers find their home on the internet? That percentage continues to rise. As a full-time agent I can help market your home so that we connect with qualified buyers. Your listing will receive premium attention.

I also enjoy the relationships I build with buyers. They rely on me to help inform them of all aspects of the purchasing process.  And with such a wide array of mortgage programs available, I want to make sure you work with an expert who can help you find the best program for your needs. Count on me for the personalized service you deserve!



REAL ESTATE is an ever-changing industry. It is my goal to make sure your experience is one of complete satisfaction! Whether buying or selling, we can build a strong working relationship together!
