Selling her childhood home to a new family with small children made Erin Loughran realize something about real estate: it’s not just properties. It’s parents, family, generations and, ultimately, renewal. And she wanted to be a part of that. After teaching in the high school and elementary school levels for several years, she earned her real estate license and was drawn to the culture of mentorship at Donnelly + Co., embracing learning as much as she’s embraced teaching. She lives in the city with her two French bulldogs, Remy and Aubrey.
