Clients are saying:
"Moving to Chicago from out-of-state I needed to find a residence on extremely short notice. Three weeks before my needed move-in date, I emailed Lauren with a list of what I was looking for, and the accommodations I would need. She promptly provided me with possibilities to check online before visiting, and set up multiple appointments in the city for the Saturday I would be in town.
Lauren drove me to the different residences throughout the city, and provided helpful insight about the neighborhoods, and what each would have to offer. She was able to provide helpful advice on what she thought of each place when I asked for it.
Once I made a decision, Lauren was in contact with the building, and handled all of the leasing issues. She was always available by phone, email, and text, and was responsive to anything I encountered during the process.
In addition to her professionalism and experience, Lauren is friendly, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor. Just spending an afternoon with her, I felt comfortable trusting her input, and I would happily work with her again."
"Lauren helped us, as first-time homebuyers, every step of the way. She struck a perfect balance of enthusiasm and serenity to help us stay sane as we looked at house after house, and she was a strong advocate for us once we were ready to make an offer, negotiate, etc. Every piece of advice she offered proved to be right on the money, every time. She is a consummate professional, but also whimsical and lighthearted, which made the stressful process of buying a home to be actually fun. We couldn't ask for a better agent and we'd recommend her HIGHLY to friends and family."
"We feel so incredibly lucky to have had Lauren as our realtor. As first time homebuyers we entered the process a bit overwhelmed. We had a broad range of ideas for what we were looking for in a home. Lauren answered all our questions promptly and expertly guided us towards finding exactly what we wanted in our price range. She has the perfect blend of professionalism, attentiveness, approachability and sense of humor which made the time spent with her both informative and fun. Her response time to our questions via email or text were always very quick.
Our minds were really set at ease after our first meeting with Lauren. We knew immediately that she was the perfect fit for us and we could trust that we were in good hands. We would recommend Lauren to anyone! She's absolutely wonderful!"
"Lauren was absolutely terrific to work with. She was knowledgeable, responsive to questions and requests, professional, and perhaps most importantly, someone who I truly felt had my best interest in mind throughout the process. On a personal note, Lauren was incredibly personable and easy to talk to, which made the experience that much more enjoyable. It is for these reasons and more, without hesitation I encourage anyone searching for a new place in Chicago to contact Lauren."
"My wife and I are so grateful to have Lauren as our real estate agent!
We had a bit of a complicated situation when it came to selling our condo, but from day one Lauren was enthusiastic and determined to make it work. And make it work she did!
She gave us excellent advice, feedback, and strategy about how and when to put our place on the market. She made sure that we could present the strongest first-impression of our property through great photographs and marketing presence. And whenever we hit discouraging roadblocks, Lauren encouraged us and found solutions to even the most challenging questions.
She was incredibly responsive and a thoughtful communicator throughout the whole process, giving us regular concrete updates on showings and progress that gave us piece of mind that we were moving forward.
Lauren also has outstanding personal skills. She's incredibly kind, warm, and charming... and was really helpful in navigating "interesting" interpersonal dynamics that came up for us between potential buyers, other agents, and even our tenants.
And once we had an offer, Lauren helped us get to close quickly by taking time to be present for inspections and unexpected maintenance visits. I had an incredible piece of mind knowing Lauren was taking care of the details.
Throughout the whole process we really felt Lauren's care and tenacious attention for us and our property. She's sharp, passionate, hard-working, thoughtful, and just really stinkin' good at her job. And super fun to boot!
We are so lucky to have Lauren as our real estate agent.... and hope you can be so lucky too!"
