Client Testimonials

"Lauren Spencer is a truly wonderful person and a great realtor. We have worked with her on and off for 25 years and she has become a trusted friend. When we called her in May looking to find our dream home she called back 2 days later with the perfect property. It was not even on the market. Then she helped us write the offer that was accepted over 3 others, two of which were for cash. She guided us through escrow without a hitch and we could not be happier. We would not have bought this house without Lauren as our realtor. She is tireless, fair, upbeat and effective. And her experience and local knowledge make her the best realtor in the county."

"Dear Lauren, Thank you for your professionalism and patience in working on the sale of our property. Your recommendations on what improvements were necessary to get us the best price was invaluable. Also, your scheduling of the inspections and other contractors to get the sale completed, took a huge burden off of me. But most of all, dealing with 3 separate owners, some that were combative at times, working as a mediator, and keeping the ship sailing straight for the 6 months it took to fix and sell this property, was incredible and irreplaceable. You earned every penny of your commission.
Thank You Very Much,"

"One month ago I called Lauren Spencer, a Realtor with Caldwell Banker, to ask her to sell my home. Today less than one month later I sat with her to sign the final papers on the sale of my home. Lauren has extraordinary talents, incredible resources, and was able to advise me what needed to be done to make my house saleable. This included things like painting the garage door, professionally "staging my home", having the landscaping presentable, etc. She researched the area I lived in and presented me with the right asking price for my home. Lauren's recommendations were all taken to heart. She did an outstanding job of producing photo displays for the MLS on line services. Within a week of the day my home went on the market, I had three bidders and actually ended up receiving more than I asked. Every part of the transaction went smoothly including her communications with the buyer's realtor. As a professional myself, I cannot speak highly enough for Lauren. I will highly recommend Lauren whenever I have the opportunity; she truly is one of a kind, and a joy to work with. She made what could have been a very stressful situation in my life a true Blessing!"

""SHE HIT THE GROUND RUNNING!" After interviewing several local realtors in the Santa Cruz area my wife and I picked Lauren Spencer of Coldwell-Banker. She showed a real interest in the home we wanted to sell and she told us how she would go about marketing our property. The day we picked her as our listing agent (realtor) she hit the ground running and never stopped. The very next day she provided us with tips on fixing our house, suggestions on how to make our property stand-out and gave us recommendations on contractors, landscapers and decorators who could help us sell our property quickly. Lauren assisted us in so many ways; marketing data, legal documents, termite inspections, etc., etc. Selling a house can be nerve wracking and stressful but with Lauren everything just went so smoothly - we never really worried because we knew Lauren was one step ahead of everything. She is confident, energetic, thorough and a real professional - that's not to say she is not fun to work with. We formed a great relationship and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Oh, did I mention, after our property went on the market, our property sold within about one week thanks to all the things Lauren suggested and helped us with."

"Lauren has been a friend for over 25 years and was wonderful to work when selling our home. We worked great together because we agreed on so many things. When selling our home, we originally did a walk through pointing our things we were going to do and things she would recommend doing. In the final end we got almost our full asking price in today market. This was not the first time we worked with her and every time she has been very professional. We have passed on her name to our friends and neighbors and they have used her also. We thank Lauren very much and would highly recommend if your planning on selling or buying a home."

"Can I just say Lauren Spencer is a gem in the real estate world! If you want exposure for your property she's the best. Every month she would send us an ad packet and we were amazed at the saturation of every kind of media! Lauren made the sale of our house quick and easy. She has a great eye for detail and how to make your house have the greatest curb appeal. She helped me look at my house to have a better flow and an open feel, and she was exactly right! I had way too much of everything. I will never go back to clutter! Lauren has great expertise at maneuvering offers and ultimately the sale of our home. You get what you pay for - and for us Lauren Spencer is the highest VALUE."
