When my partner and I decided to move to Denver, I immediately called Lauren and asked her to list my condo. Lauren had helped me with the purchase three years earlier and always kept my best interest at heart. Since we wanted to move quickly, Lauren sprang into action. She formalized an aggressive marketing plan, coordinated vendors, provided us with staging recommendations, and, then came over to help us stage! The plan worked; there were multiple offers, and, sold over asking after a brief marketing period. Through all the ups and downs with the purchase and subsequent sale, Lauren became a dear friend that I knew I could trust.
I recently worked with Lauren and had a great experience! I am probably a smaller budget client for San Francisco and didn't feel like I got any less of her time. Lauren was also very calm when I had a stressful situation with a mortgage company that I ultimately ended up moving on from. I would highly recommend Lauren for SF buyers!
We are first-time home buyers and Lauren helped us throughout the entire process until we found our dream home. Lauren was great at providing her honest opinion and competitively-smart bids on listing we saw and liked (either online or at an open house). She was extremely helpful in quickly answering a variety of questions that come up during the process, in regards to: disclosures (structure and pests), home-improvements/renovations, financial process, and most importantly areas of concern (and their potential expenses). When we had an inspection contingency on a brick foundation, she found a very knowledgeable structural engineer that helped us understand the entire project and major concerns in the home we were in contract to purchase. We spent almost every weekend at open houses for four months and made offers every other week. Lauren quickly understood our needs in a home and would provide excellent recommendations that she saw on her housing tours. After our offer was accepted on our dream home, we had a few challenges finalizing the loan and in communicating with our mortgage broker but Lauren was extremely helpful in facilitating this connection and getting us to close. We were so happy to celebrate with her when we received the keys from her and would highly recommend her to our friends and family
