Lauren Lockwood Consiglio
Lauren Lockwood Consiglio was born and raised in Evanston. To say she knows the North Shore well is an understatement. It’s this in-depth knowledge coupled with her single-minded determination to find people “homes they truly, truly love” that makes Lauren an incredible advocate on behalf of her clients. Her love for the region runs deep – from growing up learning to sail on Lake Michigan to being an active volunteer in her children’s local schools. Outgoing and very detail-minded, Lauren spent 10 years in special event planning and marketing as the Alumnae/i Relations Director for Chicago-Kent College of Law and as Director of Membership for the Illinois Restaurant Association. The daughter of a teacher, Lauren then went on to earn her special education teaching certificate in 2003 from San Diego State University and taught children with special needs for three years before returning home to Chicago. Back “home” for good now, Lauren resides in Northwest Evanston with her husband and three kids. The Ohio Wesleyan University graduate enjoys cooking, dining out, golfing and time with her family and friends. Lauren was thrilled to join fellow Evanston Township High School grad, Michael Thomas and Lene Thomas, on the Thomas Team in 2015. One of Chicagolands most successful real estate brokerage partnerships, The Thomas Team’s unmatched client service and commitment level is a perfect match.
Clients are saying:
"Lauren was invaluable in offering concrete, positive suggestions during the sale of my condo. She was always professional and available with timely responses when I had a question. As the closing drew closer, she was the calming influence I needed at the time and everything proceeded as smoothly as I could have imagined. I would recommend her highly."
"Outstanding agent. Calm in difficult negotiations. Level-headed, pragmatic advice. Impressive knowledge of the Evanston area. Lauren made the purchasing process smooth and easy."
"Awesome. Having Lauren as our Agent was an excellent experience and great decision! Lauren was incredibly helpful and resourceful throughout our first home buying experience. From our initial sit down, through various showings and evening chats, all the way to our closing, she made sure we were on the right track to find the place we wanted. Great person to have in your corner! She always had our best interests in mind, helped understand many situations, and went above & beyond to help us. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family."
"Lauren is a tremendous broker. Purchasing our fist home remotely while pregnant should have been a challenge. We expected an incredibly stressful, time consuming, and painful endeavor. We were very wrong and it was all because of Lauren.From the very beginning Lauren was responsive. She sent out clear, detailed, and timely emails so that my husband and I had confidence in her being on top of the market. She asked questions before giving advice. On our first meeting, she had trouble understanding exactly what we were envisioning for our home, recognized that fact, and listened to our feedback. By the second scheduled viewing she had 8 excellent choices for us, all within our budget. We found our dream home with very little effort and zero stress. We cannot recommend her highly enough and will be spreading the word. Do yourself a favor and call Lauren."
"Lauren was the perfect broker to work with. She arranged for numerous showings and always remained professional, never pressuring us or trying to sway us, which we appreciated. When we decided on a property and the closing process became long and arduous, we still felt that she was on top of every issue and that she was available at any time throughout the unanticipated delays. We would gladly work with Lauren in the future. She earned our trust."
