"Lauren has a terrific sense of the real estate market in Santa Cruz. She knows the neighborhoods, the residents, and the buying patterns. She has an intuitive sense of market trends, and displayed patience and professionalism in working with us. She helped navigate a fast-moving market and found an ideal property for our needs. Then she walked us through all the details of closing, allowing us to find, buy and move our daughter into a property with breathtaking speed. And it didn’t stop there. Once the deal was completed, Lauren gave us contacts with local craftsmen and contractors. We look forward to working with her again."
