Barbara & Kate Stone"Lauren is a gem! Her incredible knowledge and expertise are matched only by how much she cares about her clients. We bought our first home with Lauren's help back in 2002 and she handled the sale for us a few years later when we left the area. After our purchase, Lauren's local resources proved invaluable time and again whether we needed contractor references or restaurant recommendations. Returning to Santa Cruz County eight years later, we couldn't imagine using anyone else to help us buy our dream home. Thanks Lauren!!"
Chris & Tana Rhodes"When we decided to sell our home a friend recommended Lauren Spencer of Coldwell Banker. Well I'm glad we gave her a call, because Lauren is the consummate professional, very personable and caring. This was our first sale of a house and Lauren was fantastic and made the entire experience a joy. She explained everything very well and was attentive and responsive to all our questions and needs. Buying or selling a home can be overwhelming, emotional, stressful, and exciting all at the same time. It really pays to have someone who can make the process smooth and comfortable and Lauren is that person. If you are looking for a realtor with savvy business experience who is companionate and caring and who will go above and beyond then give Lauren a call, you'll be glad you did."
Kirk and Sheila True"Kirk and I are new to the Real Estate market (our first house was purchasing a parent's home), and entered at an uncertain and difficult time to sell and buy property. To say Lauren is an Above and Beyonder would truly be an understatement. From helping to stage our home for sale, to cleaning it afterwards, everything Lauren did was professionally and beautifully done. Throughout the process not only was Lauren supportive and caring, but consistently a calming voice of reason. She will not allow you to hit the panic button, or make unwise decisions. No matter how many clients Lauren has she was capable of making us feel like we were her only and most important client. She will become your loyal agent and trusted friend to the whole family through the process.
We can't recommend Lauren and her team highly enough. Use Lauren for your real estate needs, and no one else!"
Sonia, Bruce & Fynn McMoran"Lauren helped my husband and I buy our first house this past summer. Being new to the housing market, we were very wary and anxious, until we met Lauren! She was the mentor we needed as we dived into the world of real estate. Her expertise in the field, along with her knowledge of Santa Cruz was invaluable. Every question we had, she was there with helpful information.
She was very accommodating with our schedules (and more importantly, our baby's schedule!) She sat with us on many occasions, thoroughly going over the process and the intimidating paperwork. While we were nervous to make our final decision, we made it knowing we had all the information we needed and someone on our side ensuring we got the best deal.
We absolutely love our house and would recommend Lauren to anyone looking to buy their first house."
Harry Rogers"Lauren Spencer is a really nice person. And, more importantly she knows how to get results. I found her to be extremely efficient and patient in a very tough market. Selling a house in this market takes some real skills. She used her knowledge of support people to have possible deal killers taken care of quickly and efficiently. She had the home meticulously cleaned. She then had the home skillfully staged. When the stagers suggested a few updates to enhance appeal, she quickly had her handyman there to do the required work. There is a ton of paperwork required in property sales. Lauren made it simple for me. Each time new documents need to be signed, she electronically transmitted them for-signing saving me countless trips to her office. As an attorney with over 30 years experience, I can't recall ever having dealt with a more pleasant and efficient Realtor. I highly recommend her without reservation to anyone who desires to sell property in Santa Cruz County."
Brian & Carol Lloyd"Lauren, you are the consummate professional! From beginning to end, you covered all aspects of the sale in detail, giving us great peace of mind. Thank you so much for all of your advice regarding preparation, staging and pricing. Without that, we're not sure the house would have sold as quickly as it did, nor with as many offers to pick from! And the photography - awesome!! We also appreciated your clarifications and making the paperwork as painless as possible. Bottom line, we felt comfortable because of your open communication, expertise and personal touch. We've already been singing your praises and hope you get many referrals! Thank you, thank you!"
