Clients are saying:
"We absolutely loved working with Lauren! As first time home buyers, we were pretty nervous and clueless. Lauren explained the process, and was there for us every step of the way. Thanks to her, I am writing this review from our new condo!!! Thank you Lauren!!"
"We had a great experience working with Lauren and would refer her to all of our family and friends. She is knowledgeable, responsive, pleasurable to work with and overall a fantastic real estate broker. We were in a competitive offer situation on the home we were buying, and also had a home that we needed to sell. Lauren was able to advise us on a strategy that allowed us to purchase our dream home. We were doubtful that we could make this happen but Lauren was brilliant in navigating through this very competitive offer situation. Lauren, we are so thankful for your efforts, and we were so lucky to have you in our corner. If you are looking for an outstanding real estate professional that will be with you every step of the way then you should call her for your real estate needs. Thanks again Lauren!!"
"Lauren was truly a pleasure to work with during the entire home buying process.
One of Lauren’s key strength is the advice she gives that draws off her own personal experience flipping houses and managing rental properties. I was looking for a house which I can renovate and Lauren was really good at proving high level estimates for the cost of work and providing valuable advice on the different ways the house can be renovated.
Lauren was also very good at providing on the spot feedback on what she thought of the house and whether she thinks it’s a good buy.
This was my first time buying a house and Lauren pretty much held my hand through the entire process. It was the smoothest experience with not a single surprise!
Overall, Lauren did a fantastic job and without doubt I would recommend her."
"It was a great experience working with Lauren. She always set aside time for us to answer all of our questions, and made us feel very comfortable with our purchase every step of the way. She had a great knowledge of real estate and we felt much more educated and prepared when working with her! We will definitely be using her services in the future and would recommend her to all of our family and friends. Thank you so much Lauren!"
"Lauren is absolutely wonderful to work with! She knew the area we were looking in very well, and had a ton of knowledge about the condition of the home and the costs of fixing/updating everything we were looking at. That made the process of buying a home (especially one that needs a bit of work) so much less stressful than we anticipated. She was able to share expected ROI on different projects were were considering, which has helped us not only find the right now for us, but also prioritize the work we will put into our home. We are so grateful to her for all of her knowledge and support!"
