  • I love working at Cottingham Chalk because the family-like culture is fun and so supportive!

  • I love that Charlotte has a mix of people from across the globe, the exploding restaurant scene and the world-class arts.

  • For a quick getaway, you can’t beat Charleston for the coast or Asheville if the mountains are calling you. We are spoiled being so close to both!

  • Exploring the world (near and far) with my husband and two daughters is what I love to do with my free time. We love to connect with new cultures and people.

  • I am an energy healer. I use ancient techniques from Japan and other indigenous cultures and spiritual traditions to assist the body’s innate healing mechanisms. And healing the energy in a house can be transformative for all its inhabitants!

A lover of travel and cultural arts of all mediums, she delights in finding the very best in local restaurants, galleries, music and fashion. Her passion for architecture and home design, in particular, fueled her interest in pursuing real estate as a career. She combines that passion with a concierge-like attention to detail to provide top notch service to her clients.

Laina’s experience launching a wellness retail store in the world renowned Cleveland Clinic hospital, as well as her training in yoga and meditation make her an ideal companion on the sometimes stressful path to home buying and selling. She has the poise, local knowledge, and outstanding relationship skills to lead every transaction to success.

Laina has been married to Sal for 18 years and has two teenage daughters. If she is not watching one of her girls play soccer or volleyball, she is likely out in the Elizabeth neighborhood walking or dining out with friends. Laina is active in the Elizabeth Community Association, and is currently organizing the Elizabeth Home & Garden Tour event to be held in October. She also enjoys lending a hand at the Second Harvest Foodbank, Crisis Assistance Free Store, and other community organizations.
