Client Testimonials

Danny & Sharon Medler
"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."
Tony & Jan Passaro
"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."
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."
