Larry, Connie, and Lucky Drysdale"We want to thank you for the excellent professional service you provided us with the sale of our home. Your exceptional marketing skills resulted in an offer within days of listing our property! The entire escrow process from initial offer to close of escrow went very smoothly. We know you did a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure this happened. We would recommend you to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home. And we hope that you will be able to represent us when we buy a new home. You have been a joy to work with. THANKS AGAIN!"
Adam, Katrina & Samara Lippman"Thank you so much for helping us move. I know it was a long process for us to find the perfect house but when we finally did you made it all happen. The short sale we bought in Scotts Valley had some VERY unrealistic expectations from the bank. We put in our offer along with 2 other offers. We upped our offer slightly per your suggestion and ours was the one accepted. From that point on things were kind of a blur. We had exactly 30 days to close and several of those days were holidays and weekends. You said all the right things to the bank and the lender and we got the whole thing done just under the wire.
After that we had to put our existing house on the market. You suggested several improvements to make the house more appealing. I know I pushed back and didn't want to do all of them, but I am so glad I did. Once our house was on the market we immediately got 2 full price offers and from there the fun began. For several days the two buyers kept out bidding each other. Finally one backed down and we settled on a price that was nearly $40,000 more then we were asking. AMAZING!!! We never could have done this without you. We are so happy in our new house and should we ever decide to move again I would not hesitate to use your services. I know better now then to go against your suggestions. I am so glad in the end that we took care of all the little issues you suggested fixing. Thank you again for taking such good care of us."
Beth Martorano-Smith and Bryan Smith"Lauren Spencer helped us sell our home in an extremely difficult market. She developed a comprehensive plan for us, utilizing a web presence, home staging and many open houses to get the word out. Throughout the process she kept us informed. She listened to our concerns and made great recommendations in a way that was always respectful. We are grateful to her and strongly recommend her. It's no accident that she is at the top of her profession!"
Carolyn Davidson"When I was ready to sell my home, I asked a co-worker, she herself had been in the Real Estate business, who she would list with if she was selling a home. Without hesitation she recommended Lauren Spencer. At our first meeting I knew she was the right agent. She was so friendly and professional and came beautifully prepared with homework she had done on my property. She was interested in my concerns and listened to what my needs were. Everything about the transaction went smoothly. There are many great things about Lauren but one thing is especially important to me is communication. Lauren kept me abreast of every detail of the sale as we went along. Oh, and even in this unpredictable sales climate, Lauren had my house in contract and a backup offer within the first month!!! Amazing job!!! Would I work with Lauren again? You bet!!
Christy Emrich"I wanted to THANK YOU so much for helping me with the greatest transaction I have ever made to purchase my first home. It seemed so easy and I know it was because you made it that way. I guess there is something to say about having a Trusted Name like your self to represent me. I cannot wait to work with you again!!"
Bob & Janet Mize"Thank you, once again, for your professional service. Because of the excellent job you did in assisting St. John’s Episcopal Church with the sale of its Capitola property, I knew that, when it was time to sell our personal home, my husband and I would ask you to be our agent.
It was a joy to work with such a knowledgeable and gracious Realtor. You always stayed tuned to our (the sellers) needs and priorities. We knew that you would work for what was the best for us. Your advice for pricing, marketing and negotiating was dependably good and current. Thank you for keeping us on track when we wandered off course. You were patient with us and kindly guided us back to the correct path.
You make a great realtor and your personality and skills make you a professional and dynamic agent. Bob and I felt lucky to have you working for us. We especially appreciated your attention to detail and excellent communication. We always knew what was transpiring with the marketing, negotiating and with all of the complicating events during the escrow process.
If we had other property to sell or if we want to buy something again, we would most certainly ask you to help us.
Thank you for your patience with us, for your hard work, and extensive marketing and for helping us in such a professional manner throughout the complicated process and to the successful conclusion!"
