Client Testimonials

Cris Carpenter, Open Door Locksmith
"Amazing!  Lauren is more together than any realtor I've seen.  She has books of recommendations from past clients.  She has an organized way of approaching a home that evaluates value carefully and thoughtfully for the best results.  No spur of the moment off-the-cuff guesses.  This is obviously not just a hobby for her.  She is well-organized, methodical, and knowledgeable about the market.  And it sure makes it easy with her being so nice!"
Mark & Debbie Lillo
"Thank YOU, Lauren, for a job well done.  You were very patient with us as we gradually lowered our expectations and did a very professional and thorough job.  We were in great hands and are, indeed, relieved to have the house sold and about to be enjoyed by excited new owners."

"As good as it gets.......!
I have been fortunate to have bought and sold a number of real estate properties over my adult life.  I first met Lauren when she was representing a buyer on a property that I was selling.  I was so impressed with her professionalism, and attention to detail, I called her when I was going to put a property up for sale.  This is a difficult market, and yet with her guidance, and marketing skills, we sold the property within 5 months.  She is now working with me on a new purchase, and it is moving as smoothly and quickly as I have come to expect from her.  Besides all this, she has a great smile, and is a pleasure to be around."

"Are you wondering who to choose for your real estate agent?  I have just the answer for you: go with Lauren Spencer of Coldwell Banker.  Let me tell you why she’s the right choice. 
In 2005 when I was looking for a rental in Aptos I saw Lauren’s ad and called her, explaining I wasn’t interested in buying a property, but I was from Santa Clara County and didn’t know how to find a rental.  Lauren was very helpful and clearly a true real estate professional, taking the time to help me when I only wanted to locate a rental property.  I didn’t forget Lauren’s helpfulness or her professionalism.
This spring when I decided the time to buy a home was right I contacted Lauren.  I wanted her to be my realtor and never even considered another agent.  She did not disappoint me!  Lauren Spencer is a thorough, helpful, bright, competent professional who came through for every request I made of her, even offering assistance above and beyond the routine requirements of a real estate transaction in today’s very complex real estate market. 
Lauren put assisting me purchase my new home a top priority.  Without her diligence I wouldn’t be living here now.  She is truly committed to meeting her clients’ needs.  I am really glad I chose Lauren as my realtor and recommend her highly--you can absolutely count on her to work on your behalf."

"We love the location of the new place.   Broghan takes her dog for a walk just about every day in the park across the street.  We all want to tell you how much we appreciate the great job you did for us in finding and purchasing our new home.  When you helped us sell our house in Aptos last year, the process went very successfully because of your expertise.  Every step of the way you were very prepared and thorough.  Buying our new place has been the same positive experience.  You're obviously very experienced and good at what you do.  I will happily recommend you whenever I get the chance."

"I was the owner of a home in the seascape area of Aptos. Having lived in my home for twenty-five years it seemed like a daunting task to sell the home after my husband died. In the current market houses have not been selling as quickly as hoped so I knew it was important to choose a realtor who understood the market and was willing to work hard to find the right buyer.
Lauren Spencer of Coldwell Banker was my realtor. She was chosen on the basis of her reputation and her ability to listen and work with the ideas and the requirements I had in showing the house.  She made several reasonable suggestions for "staging the house" and did a thorough job of putting the information on all the appropriate web sites. Open houses were arranged and the house was exposed to many different potential buyers.
Lauren became a caring friend throughout the process and when the house finally sold last month she arranged the required paperwork efficiently and rapidly.
I wholeheartedly recommend her services to sellers and buyers who want a well-qualified and sensitive representative."
