She’s a wealth of knowledge, a believer in balance, and a trusted advisor - she’s the one of kind agent you want on your side, she’s Lauranette Godwin.  To simply say she is a great resource is a vast understatement.  Her professional background ranges across several departments with the City of Suffolk, specifically in Planning & Community Development.  Lauranette helped shape the permitting process on how contractors,  engineers and citizens submit applications and plans to build in the City of Suffolk.  She has extension knowledge in building, zoning, land use, property maintenance and new construction Her unique experience directly translates over to her specialty in New Construction and how she can give the insights to homebuyers in purchasing a brand new home!    

Lauranette has been a licensed Virginia Real Estate Agent since 2006 helping buyers and sellers with their real estate needs, and her specialities include helping first-time buyers, relocation, and new construction.  Her passion for real estate is clearly visible in how she treats each of clients.  She customizes her service based on her clients’ needs and she works hard at being a trusted advisor.  To her, “my clients are not just my clients - they are my future neighbors, and I am not just an agent to them, I want to be a good neighbor, and a good friend”.  

Lauranette joins the FIT Realty family as a resource to new agents, and as a partner in the company’s future.  To her, joining FIT Realty meant investing in her future.  “FIT Realty is where I want my future to be because of their innovation as a brokerage”, she explains, “they leverage their social media and technology effectively, and FIT partners with all the pieces of buying a home - to me that is a real estate company of the future”.    

As a Hampton Roads native, Lauranette knows that there is so much to see and do year round.  The “7 cities each offer a variety of unique communities, festivals, and events to enjoy”, Lauranette says, but if she had just one day here she would spend the day in Virginia Beach.  She would get a room at the famous Cavalier Hotel, and spend my day at the beach enjoying the sunshine, the boardwalk, and taking the salt air while her toes are in the sand.  Of course, being around her family and spending time together is the best part of her day.
