"Lauren was ESSENTIAL to our successful search for a place . Lauren was knowledgeable, helpful, and proactive in helping us with our search for a rental property. We were flying in for 3 quick days to do our search, so needed to see as much as possible, as efficiently as possible. Lauren was well organized and prepared. She arranged visits to more than 30 different properties and had prepared neighborhood packets for all the listings we saw. When we mentioned properties that we had researched on our own she already knew the relevant background information (e.g. quality of building, developer, location details, etc) and quickly arranged for us to see those listings as well. Most importantly, Lauren HONEST, UPFRONT, and ATTENTIVE with us throughout the process. Highly recommend."

"Lauren helped my boyfriend and I find our first apartment together, and we cannot recommend her enough! We found our dream rental, and the process wasn't stressful - it was fun! She took both of our wants & needs into consideration while helping us look for properties, and was incredibly patient & responsive at all times of the day. It's evident that she truly cares about her clients and is passionate about helping them find the perfect place. If you want to work with a realtor who is both consummately professional and also feels like a good friend, look no further!"

"Lauren is the best! She asked questions on our apartment tour that we would have never known to bring up and was very helpful throughout the whole application process. She is very passionate about what she does and I will continue to refer her to everyone I know. Can’t wait to work with her again in the future!"

"Lauren was so friendly and really communicative. She brought us to places that matched our criteria and even added an additional place (ended up being the one we choose) because she thought we’d love it. She was flexible with our schedules and helped us through every step of the process, even when we had little hiccups. We would highly recommend Lauren for your real estate needs!"

"Lauren was professional, prompt and reliable. Her knowledge, passion and great attitude made her a joy to work with and in turn, a great experience on our end. We felt in good hands from start to finish and knew she had our best intentions at heart. We would highly recommend Lauren for a smooth and pleasant experience."

"We LOVED working with Lauren - she took the time to listen and gather info on what we were interested in and then matched us with so many amazing apartments. She made the search so easy and we ended up finding the most perfect apartment through her! I can't recommend Lauren enough, we'll probably never use another realtor again. She's perfect!"

"Lauren was professional and accommodating from the very beginning. I was moving to Chicago from Washington state, couldn't be there in-person to look at available apartments, and had my sister go in my place to viewings with Lauren. Lauren and I talked on the phone to get an idea of what I needed, and then she coordinated with both my sister and me for viewing appointments, and answered all our questions quickly.

I am pretty demanding and detail-oriented, and Lauren stuck with me to help get all of my questions answered through the entire lease-signing process. Even after the lease was signed, she helped me with a maintenance request - and that isn't part of her job description! She also sent a really nice hard copy of my lease to me in the mail - and I loved this as I am someone who will frequently refer to the lease with any questions I have.

I really felt like she had my back, and was cool as a clam when working with building management. Not once did Lauren tell me that what I wanted/needed was impossible to find. She was optimistic the whole time, and that really eased my concerns and made the process enjoyable instead of stressful.

I want to eventually find a place to buy in Chicago, and I look forward to working with Lauren again in the future!"

"Lauren was fabulous she found us a place immediately, the second place we looked at was the one, she helped negotiate a reasonable price and was so on top of everything with speedy responses to any questions or issues that arose. I’ve been recommending her to anyone I know that is moving and will utilize her skills and services every time I need to relocate my home in the future!"

"Lauren was so helpful in selling our condo! She was super accomadating with our situation and extremely helpful. She made our place look amazing! Lauren made the entire process, which seemed daunting at first, so easy. She was very helpful even after the condo had sold to ensure that everything went as smoothly as possible. Lauren is such a great person to work with!"

"Lauren was fantastic throughout the buying process. She made things as simple as possible with as little stress as their could be. She genuinely cares for her clients and listens to all of their desires and needs when buying a home. I would highly recommend Lauren to any first time home buyer!"

"Lauren was an absolute blessing when it came time to find a new place to live here in Chicago! I was worried about the time crunch I found myself in this past May, but she went out of her way to make me feel like we had plenty of time to find my next home. Sure enough, she was right! She learned exactly what I was looking for in a property, and immediately took me to numerous places that I fell in love with. Every time we walked out of a viewing she was eager to learn my new wants and opinions of what she was showing me. She will also NEVER give up on you. I can be a bit picky... to a fault... but this girl stood next to me on at least 15 properties, with a smile on her face the entire time. I HIGHLY recommend anyone who is looking in the Chicagoland area to use Lauren. She's fabulous, professional and won't let you down!!"

"Lauren was a true professional and a joy to work with! She made the selling process easy and was great as we had to move out of state during the selling process. Highly recommend and would love to work with her again."

"Lauren was the absolute best. Before we even met, Lauren took the time to find out my must-haves and wishes for my new home. When we met for viewings, Lauren had information about every place she had scheduled, even down to the neighbor and information surrounding my potential home. Every viewing was scheduled in such a time-effective and professional manner, which was very much appreciated. Finding a new home can be a tense time, but Lauren truly made it as stress-free as possible, and I can’t thank her enough."

"Lauren has assisted me in multiple transactions both buying and selling and she has went above and beyond expectations each time. She is very responsive and is always willing to work around your schedule. I highly recommend Lauren for all your real estate needs!"

"Lauren was amazing in helping me with my first home purchase. The whole process felt like I was working with family. She made sure I stayed within my budget so I can continue to enjoy life and travel freely. I thought buying a home would tie me down but owning is actually opening more doors for me to travel. I'll be renting out my condo next year so I can try out the LA life & it’s nice to know someone will be paying my mortgage for me & I might even make a few bucks too. I’ll for sure be using Lauren as my agent when I’m ready to rent it. If you’re a first time home buyer I highly recommend talking with Lauren. Thank you so much Lauren!!"

"Lauren found me the best condo that checked off everything I wanted. She negotiated to the price I needed to be in and made both myself and the seller happy. She also helped after they accepted the offer. Paperwork and list items were a breeze. Lauren also has a laundry list of AMAZING referrals for inspection, lender, etc. I would 100% use Lauren again, and refer her to my own family and friends. Thank you for helping jimmy and I find our home!!!"

"Lauren Calderone is literally the best! As an out of state client, I had no idea where to begin my apartment search. Luckily, I was connected with Lauren. She was so helpful, kind, and informative. The day I landed in Chicago, Lauren took me to see 10 properties as my search was time sensitive. She talked me through every step of the renting process as well as answered all of my questions and offered suggestions when necessary. I couldn’t have had a more smooth transition. I highly recommend Lauren Calderone to anyone with real estate needs! :)"
