Laine possesses two qualities I find so rare in partners today. She is both incredibly knowledgeable of the market and equally passionate about what we do for a profession. As a local homebuilder, I have worked with many partners in the National Capitol Region; I can attest to Laine’s exemplary professionalism and attention to detail. Moreover, her ability to connect with people and develop trust instantly has been critical to her success. I am proud to recommend Laine Shakerdge as a business partner, investor and friend.

Whitestone seamlessly delivered as promised, and in record time. We’ve done multiple deals with Laine; she’s got a deep knowledge of the market, and the flexibility to accommodate the changing needs of the projects. Excellent transactions. I highly recommend her.
