I am an "Islander" born and raised but left for a time and then came home...like most of us do. We realize as we get older how magical PEI is. It's safe, quiet, relaxed, full of beauty and wonderful people..most of whom we know. :) I have lived up west, down east, Charlottetown and in Anne's Land. I know this Island inside out.
I absoutely love PEI and since moving home, i became a tourist on my own Island. I discovered so many beautfiul sights that I had to share them! I started 3 tourist businesses from 1999 to 2007, one of them being a tour company and this allowed me share my love of the Island with others. In 2001, I took on the task of designing and manufacturing fitness wear. I didn't know a thing about it, except that the Island needed some quality and fashionable fitness wear, so i started from my livingroom to shipping world wide and being featured in popular fitness magazines thoughout Canada. In 2002, I also started 2 year round fitness businesses from 2002 to 2012 when i sold. In 2007. I became very interested in real estate, purchasing and renovating heritage income properties in old Charlottetown and renovating them to look like new! This venture brought me new exicitement so I decided it was time to change directions and focus on one thing, so I took the real estate course and sold my own businesses and began a new chapter!
Since becoming and agent and broker i have had the pleasure of helping many people find their happy home and . In 2013, i was on a mission to build my dream home. I searched and searched for the most perfect and beautiful lot. I drove down every heritage road and covered Anne's Land in its entirety.
When i found Long River Beach Subdivision, the view blew my mind! It was by far the most beautiful, panoramic view i had ever seen! So without delay i began to build the dream home that was on my vision board 5 years prior!! Now you may understand why i called my company Vision Realty PEI, Where your vision becomes reality! :)
I had my own team of great tradesmen and was hands on everyday.
This past year i branched out once again and built and sold 3 beautiful but affordable luxury beach houses!
As of this year, 2017, i became the proud owner of Long River Beach Estates Subdivision. Yet another dream come true! I will create a beautiful and peaceful community for all residents to enjoy. I plan to build 1-2 spec houses per year and of course sell the lots where we can offer a turn key spec home of your choice.. A community communal dock was recently approved by Dept. of Environment, which will increase property values, along with the caliber of homes in the subdivision.
I am a perfectionist, hard worker, efficient, honest and a no nonsense kind of woman! I believe in doing a job right and in a timely manner and of course doing what's best for my clients.
If you are looking to own a vacation home or luxury rental on PEI, give me a call!

A FEW TESTIMONIALS FROM MY CLIENTS.
have bought two properties through Laurie and can say- without a doubt-that she goes above and beyond! She is knowledgeable, listens to her clients, and works hard to find them the property that works right for them. But most importantly, Laurie conducts herself with the utmost integrity and honesty in her real estate business and always keeps her client's interests as her number one priority.
Alexandra Shaw, PE
My fiance and I had been been looking for a starter home for months with failed offers and no real luck. After Laurie became our agent we felt like she really understood what we wanted and she found the perfect home for us. She explained all the things we neeeds to know about buying a home and fought hard to get us a great deal. I'd recommend Laurie for her great knowledge of PEI real estate and for her passion and drive.
Natasha Hynes, PE
We were new to PEI and the Charlottetown area and thus were nervous about purchasing a property. After meeting several realtors, we found Laurie Carruthers to be the most friendly and professional. She was very knowledgeable about the market and showed us many homes that met both our price range and our lifestyle choices. Once we had chosen a home to purchase, Laurie made the process effortless by helping us find a mortgage broker and an inspector. We very much enjoyed working with Laurie and would highly recommend her!
Jon and Amir Zucculo, PE
I have bought and sold eight properties over the last few years and I have had dealings with many agents but you are by far head and shoulders above the rest. You aren't one of those real estate agents who are just trying to make a sale whatever it takes. Your customers will find that out pretty quick once they get to know you.It is very rare these days to find someone who is willing to put in the time and energy to really help their customers the way you do. I have been so impressed with the level of commitment, dedication and honesty you provided during the purchase and sale of my two businesses and I was equally impressed with the way you continued to help me with permits, licenses, bookings etc after the sales were complete. That showed me what kind of person you really are. I would like to express my sincere gratitude for all your help and hard work. It will be pleasure to recommend you and your company to my customers and friends.
Keep up the great work.

I met Laurie when she listed a house I was interested in. Our initial intent was to buy a small summer cottage that me and my family could use in the summer. Laurie's keen entrepreneurial spirit soon recognized that there were better alternatives. We now own what we would consider our PEI dream home. It has a magnificent view and we could not possibly have found a better location. To top it off, we are able to rent it as a vacation home when we are not there and we are actaully making a profit from the property. We couldnt be more pleased and we credit Laurie in large part for the final outcome. Laurie was great to deal with, delivered on time, followed up on our questions, was always truthful, and had a thorough knowledge of PEI. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent and this is especially true if you are interested in selling or obtaining a vacation home on PEI.
Barry King, Nfld
Being new to the Island, there was a lot that my husband and I did not know about all of the areas and the real estate market of PEI. Laurie was so patient with us and she was enthusiastic about showing us a lot of different houses. She was so helpful over the course of several months to ensure that we found the right place. We really did find the right place for us and we owe so much of it to Laurie. Her knowledge along with her friendly and kind personality assured that I could trust her opinion when I wasn't sure about something concerning the properties. Laurie made me feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire process and we couldn't be happier in our new home!
I recently purchased my first residential property on my own and in short - Laurie was wonderful. She was quick to arrange showings, give me very helpful advice and help me navigate unfamiliar challenges. I can't say enough about her service and the fact that she goes the extra mile for her clients.
