What Lauren's Clients say....

Below you can hear from some of the many home buyers and sellers I've had the privilege and pleasure of working with.

Joanne, Colin and Broghan Etheridge
"Thank you for doing such a great job for me and my family in the marketing and selling of our house. From beginning to end, you handled things in a very professional manner. You were always well prepared and had a calm demeanor. I especially appreciated your "wise counsel" when some of the post-sale issues arose. I will recommend you to any friends or colleagues who might need real estate services."
Laren & Ida Hirst
"We just can't begin to say what a professional Lauren is. We started this journey sometime ago with the purchased of a lot in the Rio Del Mar area and helpped realize a dream to have a home near the beach. Lauren was awesome in getting a very complex deal negotiated and closed. We processed the plans and built our home. When it came time to sell, there was only one person whom we wanted to call. There are so many aspects to marketing and selling a home. Lauren has made everything seamless with a host of resources that she brings to the process. I have sold many homes over the years and Lauren is by far the best agent I have had the opportunity to work with. Much of the value happens when you aren't looking. Her fingerprints are all over every aspect of the selling process. From her comprehensive marketing strategy, including local media and the world wide web, to the extensive experience she brings to the negotiation process to her escrow team and facilitating the nuances of the contractual requirements, to the close. It gets even better: She is a super person with a work ethic that is difficult to match, she is always easy to reach, and there is never a stone unturned."
Steve & Nancy Miner
"As the dust settles from our move we wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we appreciate your efforts on our behalf in the recent sale of our home. You have such a wonderful balance of professionalism, integrity, market knowledge, wisdom and kindness. Your strong sense of fairness helped smooth out the few rough patches we hit in selling our house. Starting ten years ago when we were looking to purchase a house and met you at an open house through today when we have just completed selling the house you helped us purchase then, you have always been available when we had questions or concerns. Since we are leaving the area we will sorely miss both our personal relationship with you and your wise counsel in our next real estate purchase."
James & Lisa Ball
""We worked with Lauren when we bought our new home and when we decided to sell our old home. She was very gracious about meeting us several times and showing us homes when we often had our three young children with us. She also easily answered questions we had about the process. When I called her and said, "We are ready to make an offer." She immediately went to see the property and agreed it was just what we had been looking for. The process was seamless for us and she expertly advised us every step of the way. Soon thereafter we wanted to sell our old home and she quickly let us know what she thought we needed to do to get it ready. She also recommended service providers to move the process along effectively. She insisted we stage our home as it was empty and within 2 weeks our home was sold. We happily recommend Lauren to others as she is an expert at knowing what is needed to buy and sell effectively, especially in this market which many consider a difficult one to sell in.""
Gregory Dodd
"I highly recommend Lauren. While Lauren’s area of expertise lies in Santa Cruz County she was unafraid of helping me sell the family home in San Jose. Selling my Mother’s home after her passing was a difficult task, but Lauren helped me every step of the way. She helped me make the difficult decisions, made suggestions as to what needed to be done to my Mom’s home in order to have it present better, and she has a vast network of professionals to help with any of the work that needs to be done to the house. Lauren’s extensive knowledge in real estate was reflected in the fact that she knew just how to price the home. Even in the rough real estate market that we are in, the house sold very quickly and we got our asking price. I won’t use any other Real Estate Agent whether it is buying or selling a home."
Christy Lynch & Michael Richards
"Lauren came highly recommended by a family member in the real estate business. We were thoroughly pleased with her throughout the process of buying a home in Santa Cruz.  She is very experienced and knows the market in Santa Cruz.  We had just had a baby and it was difficult to find time to get to her office, so she came to our apartment countless times.  She was always available by phone and e-mail and touched base with us frequently.  Lauren was so efficient at getting inspections scheduled and paperwork done that we were able to close escrow early, which saved us money.   It's obvious to us that Lauren really cares about finding her clients the house they want and making the process go smoothly.  We would highly recommend her!"
