Clients are saying:
"We were terrified to start the process of buying, then we found Lauren. My partner and I were first time buyers and she made us feel completely secure and supported throughout the entire process, and even made it exciting and fun! She listened to our wants and concerns and worked tirelessly to find us EXACTLY what we wanted, and never made us feel like a burden. I don't know if we'll ever move again because she secured our DREAM home, but if we do, she'll be the first person we call."
"Anyone buying or selling real estate should seriously consider hiring Lauren as their real estate agent. My wife and I met Lauren after our listing agreement expired with a prior realtor. Because of our disappointment in that prior realtor, we researched and interviewed multiple realtors for our anticipated relisting of the property. Lauren impressed us with her (1) organized, thoughtful approach to the selling process, (2) knowledge of the market and candid analysis of where our condo was positioned, (3) pricing strategy, and, last but not least, (4) personal affability.
The next time we buy or sell property we plan to be represented by Lauren. You want a person who (a) is knowledgeable about the market, (b) uses high-quality sales materials (think about it: a potential buyer touring your property is going to have a better impression departing with a well-produced color brochure printed on quality cardstock than they will with a black and white double-side printout of the MLS listing), (c) provides candid advice about pricing at the outset so your property sells quickly (which is key to achieving the best sale price), and (d) is part of a well-regarded and known agency, like the Emily Sachs Wong Team. When we compared Lauren to other realtors based on these considerations, she stood out.
When purchasing or selling something as significant as a home or investment property, you want the best representation. And in trying to obtain that representation, it is well worth your time to speak with Lauren!"
"Lauren was incredible from the first to final steps of my fiance' and I purchasing our first condo! We were on a tight budget and a unique time frame due to getting married later this year. Lauren was very helpful finding us condos that financially made sense as well as checking off every box we had. She was excellent when it came to negotiating with the sellers, her knowledge of the areas we were looking in and responsiveness as we had questions along the way. I am recommending Lauren to all my friends looking to buy homes in the future. She was the best!"
