Adriane grew up in the real estate business and can remember going on house showings with her father when she was as young as 3. If you were good during the showing, he would give you beef jerky on the way home! Starting full time in 2006, Adriane has been known to employ the same beef jerky tactics to bribe her own children. It is Adriane's belief that everyone deserves a place to belong and it is the job of a real estate agent to impart the knowledge to help clients make their own educated decisions. Adriane and her husband, Chris, have also "flipped" 25 homes and have decided it is really much more glamours that they make it look on TV. In what other field of work can you find a dead bird and get fleas in the same day? Working on these properties and going on hundreds of home inspections has taught her gobs about the ins and outs of properties and helps her to have the knowledge to find some of the major issues before our clients spend $500 on a home inspection or before our sellers have a buyer back out of a transaction. Nowadays, Adriane leaves the house flipping to her husband so she can focus 100% of her attention on her buyer and seller clients.

Erin is to Rooted Real Estate: The Adriane Lau Team what the motherboard is to a computer. Working side by side with Adriane since 2014, Erin is the brains of the operation. She works behind the scenes on everything from coordinating contractors for repairs to communicating with our lender, title companies, and clients. If you become our client and you are highly satisfied, it is usually Erin we have to thank. Her favorite form of gratitude is typically Mediterranean food from Zaytoons, with Sultans a close second. In addition to a busy work schedule, you might also find Erin cheering on her two boys at their football or basketball games
Alexa is a digital marketing assistant, but she began her career in real estate before she had even started preschool. She would go with her dad to his investment properties and play in vacant rooms as he worked (and sometimes with power tools when he wasn’t looking). Later on, when she was older and much more responsible, she babysat Adriane’s children and now has come full circle as a member of the team. When Alexa isn’t in the office she is busy photographing weddings, babies, high school seniors and more. Check out some of her photography on Instagram @lexy_hecksel. Her favorite things in the world are her dogs, Despereaux and Winnie, her family and going for drives in the summertime as the sun goes down.
