With a focus on spending time on the client's needs instead of running a full service office, Bennett & Company operates as a corporation with Laura Bennett overseeing a team of dedicated professionals who work remotely, and are involved in every client.  In addition, specialists are brought in to serve specific client needs.  This gives Bennett a foundation of knowledgeable and collaborative professionals, a back-up team and the ability to focus on relationships and results.



As a child, Laura Phillips Bennett lived all over the United States, in places as different as Alamogordo, New Mexico; St. Louis, Missouri and Los Angeles, California. The daughter of a NASA "rocket scientist", she quickly learned to adapt to unique places, varied faces and diverse cultures. As an adult her career has taken her to cities across the United States and at each stop she was given the opportunity to be part of major events and worldwide trends. As a result she has enjoyed living in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin and Miami before settling in Orlando. 

Those life experiences proved invaluable to Laura, who founded Bennett & Company in 1982. More than 925 clients later, she has represented everything from a Pope and a sitting President, to major corporations, entrepreneurs, national chains, trade associations and local organizations.


Prior to opening Bennett & Company, Laura spent a decade working for major organizations and corporations such as AT&T, the National Restaurant Association and even had a stint in the White House. Her takeaway from those experiences - open her own firm and focus on her client’s success.

A proud University of Florida graduate you can still find Laura and friends at Gator games every fall.  In the far right image above, that's us right above the word "This"!  A believer in building relationships, giving back to her community and her profession and on a never-ending quest for knowledge – she helped found a nonprofit organization Feed More Kids in 2015 and is active in the following professional organizations:

 In 2021:

  • NAREE – National Association of Real Estate Editors – winner of the President’s Plate and member since 1991

  • SATW – Society of American Travel Writers - an office holder and active member since 1986

  • University of Central Florida, Rosen School of Hospitality – Past Chairman and active member.  Chairman of advisory board, 2012, 2013 and 2014, Department of Tourism
