Laura Seaman, Realtor®
Laura has lived in Philadelphia since April 2, 1994. She has a Master of City Planning from Penn and worked for the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority for four years, so her knowledge base is vast. Growing from a scrappy teenager to an Ivy League-educated entrepreneur in the City of Brotherly Love has left her with a library’s worth of interesting anecdotes, and if you ask nicely, she’ll be happy to share.
Hmmm…what else do you need to know? Oh, her spirit animal is a pigeon–you see flying rats, she sees streetwise little spitfires who can have a busted wing and trash stuck to their foot and still strut around like the queen of England. She can wax poetic on everything from the latest revival of Fiddler on the Roof to the reason the plumbing aisle of Home Depot smells extra weird on Saturday mornings, and she’ll probably show you a picture of our dogs at some point. Oh, did we leave that part out? Yeah, Laura and Tiffany have been together since 2007 and married since 2015. Having a business together is…um…interesting :-).
Danielle Vance, Realtor®
Danielle can trace her family roots back to the same South Philly neighborhood for five generations (yes, five!). She spent summers at the city pool, evenings on the stoop, and many a block party scored by Gamble and Huff. Sundays were for eating gravy and cheering on the Iggles, and neighbors were family and vice versa. Nunna yous is more “Philadelphian” than she is.
Danielle’s childhood may be rooted in great Philly nostalgia, but she’s also had a hand in shaping the city’s modern business landscape. She called Anthropologie her professional home for over 20 years and played an important role in building the company into what it is today. When the going got tough, Danielle was the one they called on to “figure it out,” and we’re happy she’s bringing that talent to Love Your Block® now. When she’s not helping folks with their real estate needs, she’s usually curled up with a book, sitting on a beach, or spinning a good yarn-possibly all at the same time.
With their backgrounds and experience, Laura and Danielle have a level of insight about Philadelphia and the surrounding areas that you don’t encounter very often. Whether you’re ready to sell your third house or you still think of “mortgage” as that card you ignored in Monopoly, get in touch and they’ll be happy to help you out.
Tiffany Zachry, Media + Marketing
Tiffany manages most of the non-real estate needs of Love Your Block®, including the website, marketing, and social media. She grew up in Texas, but has lived everywhere from Las Vegas to Hong Kong–somehow, Philly is the only place that really feels like home. Don’t worry, she is NOT a Dallas fan (go Birds!).
Outside of Love Your Block®, Tiffany also sits on the boards of Philly Loves Beer (parent organization of Philly Beer Week) and the West Philadelphia Tool Library. She’s happy to work with organizations who share her love of craft beer and DIY projects, respectively, and it’s been an amazing experience getting to know so many unique groups of people. And oddly enough, her crazy idea of creating fun, Philly-inspired t-shirts to market Love Your Block® has now become a full-on side hustle known as itsaphillyjawn.com.
