Welcome to Historic Dayton Homes!

I’m Laura, a local Realtor® and old home fanatic.  My goal is to provide helpful information for my fellow historic homeowners and fun items of interest for all enthusiasts.  Here you’ll find information regarding maintenance and repairs (including local resources), transacting in real estate (my specialty), and local history (featuring both notable buildings and fantastic neighborhoods).

While I did not grow up in a historic house, I always felt a strong connection to my grandparents turn-of-the-century farmhouse in central Maryland (pictured – I absolutely love that house!)  When I was finally ready to buy my first place, I knew I wanted something with character and history.  While these properties may come with their own unique sets of challenges, for many of us, the joys far outweigh the costs.  So, I settled into a little bungalow in Oakwood, where I now reside with my husband, Robert and our  furry sidekick, Sadie.

I hope you enjoy Historic Dayton Homes and find it useful, as well as entertaining.  If you would like to see more information on a particular topic, or have any other questions or comments, please email me.  You can also connect with me quickly and easily via social media.  I’d love to hear from you!

Also, as a local Realtor® with Coldwell Banker Heritage, I would be more than happy to address any real estate questions or needs you may have.  For more information, please visit my website at laurabettinger.com, my Dayton blog at laurabettingerblog.com, or email me at laura@laurabettinger.com.
