Clients are saying:
"My husband and I relocated to the Chicago area from southern Missouri in late Summer 2016. We were both new to the area and first time home buyers, so we needed a realtor we could trust and who was patient to walk us through all the steps. Lauren Shell helped us navigate a stressful buying process and she was by far the least stressful and most helpful part of the experience. Lauren went above and beyond by attending our inspection in our place, and advocating on our behalf wherever necessary with our lender, lawyer, and other parties. She was extremely responsive and supportive throughout the entire process by answering my texts, emails, and phone calls at virtually all hours and days of the week. I also really appreciated Lauren's knowledge and recommendations about local restaurants. Every place we have tried on her recommendation has been stellar!"
"Lauren was a joy to work with searching for and finally landing our first home purchase. She was very respectful of our time and took time to show us a variety of properties. She really helped us feel comfortable looking for a place to live, but didn't sugar coat it when it came to the realities that came to our budget. Overall she was very genuine, and that's what I appreciated most about our experience with Lauren. I would highly suggest her to anyone looking in the Chicago area!"

Lauren is extremely thoughtful, organized and efficient, and she has excellent communication skills which makes this such a great experience for first time home buyer like us. She listened to her clients' needs and she delivered them. Lauren is a professional, and she sincerely cares and wants the best for her clients.

Lauren is an excellent communicator and was a pleasure to work with. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Lauren to anyone searching for a home in the Chicago area."
