Clients are saying:
"Lauren helped us find our first home! She was straightforward about the risks and rewards of each property and really looked out for our best interests. She strongly advocated for us through negotiations and closing. Lauren was kind and patient with us as we took our time to find a beautiful house in our price range. We trust and highly recommend her!"
"We had a great experience working with Lauren! She is so easy to get along with and we appreciated her excitement and willingness to show us a property regardless of the time or day. It was like touring new places with a friend! When it came time to selling our condo, Lauren was great about getting everything lined up quickly and efficiently. She did an amazing job selling our condo and fast—it sold in one week and we had a total of 5 offers on it! Her and Meredith were an incredible duo and we feel so lucky to have had them as our allies. We'd highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling."
"Working with Lauren was an absolutely wonderful experience! She was super patient with us - knowing that we still needed to sell our home and get our bearings in the new neighborhood. Lauren is fun and bubbly and super knowledgeable about the market and the process. I've been recommending her to all of our friends and family and will 100% work with her again in the future if needed! She's the best!"
"She’s great. What more can we say? She helped us find our perfect house in a wonderful neighborhood that was within our budget and then helped us sell our condo in 11 days for more than we thought we’d ever get (and more than other agents we interviewed said we could get). Extremely personable, professional, knowledgeable and communicative. A wonderful experience buying and selling. Thank heavens for Lauren Weiss!"
"Lauren was amazing in helping us find our dream home. She is responsive, flexible, and knowledgeable. She also helped guide us through the negotiation process and attorney review. She is great!"
