Laura Zavalia – Broker Associate
561-701-1503 – (Direct)
I love the real estate business and have been a property manager and a Realtor for several years. Having lived here for over 18 years and having shepherded my two sons through Palm Beach County schools. Speaking fluent Spanish and having lived in Argentina and Uruguay for 6 years, I’m particularly comfortable working with International Buyers and have become Certified International Property Specialist, (CIPS) which involves additional training in immigration matters, taxes, and financing for foreign nationals.
One of my specialties is working with active duty and retired military personnel, since several of my family members and close friends have served in the armed forces, and one of my sons is currently serving in the US Marine Corps. This family experience has made me particularly attuned to the needs of our military people and knowledgeable about the programs available through the VA and DoD. You’ve served our country, now let me serve you.
A California girl originally, and a graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography, my twin passions are sailing and photography. I volunteer for Palm Beach Sail and Power Squadron, which means that on my off time I can usually be found being a busy First Mate on a 41 foot Beneteau sailboat, gaining a new perspective on our lovely waterfront properties along the Intracoastal Waterway.
