Laura Thompson

    O: 309-319-6030

    Laura joined the BN Realty group directly after receiving her Real Estate License in 2016. Laura is originally from Ohio where she grew up on a farm. In 2002 Laura graduated with a BS in Communication with a focus in Public Relations and Marketing from the University of Cincinnati.

    Laura’s career prior to Real Estate has always included elements that would later provide insight and benefit to her as a Realtor. In college, she spent some time with Lexis Nexis both in Marketing as well as Operations. After graduation, she moved to Chicago to work with some of the top Commercial Brokers at CB Richard Ellis (CBRE). Laura later switched to banking and developed additional valuable background as a Bank Manager at multiple locations throughout the Chicagoland area with TCF Bank. Later she also completed assignments in both Operations and Loss Prevention with National City Bank.

    In 2006 Laura left the banking world to start a family. But raising twin daughters hasn’t slowed her down a bit. Married to her best friend, Eric, and raising their family in Bloomington provided MANY opportunities for Laura to continue to be active and contribute to the community.

    Laura has been focusing her talent and attention for years in a large variety of forums.
    First she is dedicated to her church, Calvary United Methodist, where she has served as the Chair of the Trustee Committee, as a Lay Leader, the VBS Coordinator and has committed time on the planning team.

    Additionally, Laura has dedicated time to kids in the community with her passion for coaching youth sports. Currently she coaches for Fusion Soccer and had spent several seasons as the Junior High Softball Coach for Kinglsey JHS.

    Laura’s generous and driven spirit has also led her to a volunteerism. She has dedicated her time to Habitat for Humanity through several builds and has been a Project Director for Women Build as well.

    Why is Laura now committed to Real Estate? Laura is committed because she has a passion for helping people…in this case helping people make the dream of home ownership a reality. So whether a first-time home buyer… or for anyone looking to sell in order to accommodate their changing lifestyle…whether that means moving out of the area for a new job opportunity, growing your family, or as a downsizing empty-nester, Laura is ready to be your dedicated guide!
