Betty Trueblood & Carol Moore"Lauren Spencer is truly an agent extraordinaire! Selling my ninety-two year old mother's home could have been an overwhelming ordeal, but Lauren made sure everything was taken care of from preparing and marketing to staging and presenting. She was there to oversee every detail. She made sure we knew everything that was going on from the initial listing to the day of closing. Not only was she quick to respond to my mom's needs, she was able to take care of everything with minimal direction. She is the best at what she does, and she serves with professionalism, insight, and sensitivity. My mother and I really enjoyed working with Lauren and would highly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home."
Tom & Lauren Tobin"It was great working with you. I trusted Michael when he recommended you and he did not steer us wrong. Thank you for your consistently calm, patient and supportive presence. It made the whole experience much easier and more pleasant for us.
We will absolutely recommend you to anyone we know looking for an agent. And if, sometime, we decide to look again ourselves, you are the one we will call."
Niki White"I selected Lauren Spencer as my realtor... it was one of the smartest business decisions I have ever made. I became familiar with Lauren when she listed a house on our street for sale. I watched as the house was professionally prepared to market and sold quickly. I was uncertain if I was ready to sell when I first met with Lauren. She was very personable calm and reassuring. She did not pressure me into listing my home of 22+ years. She told me she'd be there when I decided it was time, whether that was now next month or next year. I called her two months later, ready to begin the next chapter! My escrow closed yesterday. My home sold quickly with few hiccups. This was due to Lauren's attention to all things factoring into a property selling; market condition, comparables, condition of your home with correct pricing. Top notch marketing produced beautiful brochures, open houses, qualified buyers and a sale. You won't find a better person than Lauren to partner with you on your housing needs."
Emily DuBois"I bought a new home last month, after 30 years in my old home, and joined the "huge fan of Lauren Spencer" club. Everything I had heard about her turns out to be true: she is smart, savvy, charming, unflappable, and a gold-standard expert. She had my back and made it a great experience and fun, even though I am a stickler for details who reads every document with a highlighter and a red pen. Lauren was on it the whole time, a calm step ahead of me, spotting issues I missed, tracking down information I needed, giving me wise counsel so I didn't get caught in rookie mistakes. You couldn't ask for a better guide and partner through the complexities of real estate sales process, I'm so grateful to have worked with her."
Ray P Christensen"With more than 50 years in general construction and real estate development, I was in need of a real estate agent to sell a townhouse in Aptos, California. I did an online search and selected Lauren Spencer with Coldwell Banker in Aptos, California due to her excellent reviews. Lauren evaluated the property and made recommendations for upgrading and staging the residence. I was somewhat hesitant on staging the property, however I decided to follow Lauren's advice. Lauren did an outstanding job of material selection and obtaining subcontractor bids. Furthermore, she scheduled and supervised the work which was accomplished in an efficient and high quality manner. The townhouse was sold in only 7 days for the highest price paid for a unit of its type in the complex it was located in. Lauren is very knowledgeable, thorough and well organized and demonstrates exceptional skill and performance in her role as a real estate agent. I highly recommend her to any buyer or seller of residential property."
James & Rosa Kraebber"As background, I was an international business executive for over 50 years, living in Paris, France. We recently arrived in this California area and were not at all aware of all the challenges in this housing market. The purpose of the memo is to highlight the impressive effectiveness of Lauren Spencer in helping us find our new home in the very difficult 2017 Central Coast California real estate market. We were referred to Lauren Spencer by our daughter, Vanessa Kehoe who also had a very positive experience with Lauren. We had rented a small home but were obligated to leave a bit earlier than we expected and this meant considerable time pressure. Lauren took our cause to heart and, most fortunately was able to show us a home that was not yet officially on the market. In a period of two days, Lauren was able to get our offer accepted, and in less than three weeks we arranged our mortgage and closed. Truly record time. At all stages of this process Lauren was a crucial factor. Impressive. I can only recommend Lauren Spencer should anyone have real estate needs."
