"My name is Michael Dowling and I am a real estate broker, developer, and investor with over thirty years of experience. I use Lauren Spencer as my agent for all of my Santa Cruz area investments. Lauren is professional, she’s courteous, she has integrity, and she’s very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Santa Cruz and the surrounding communities. She has a strong work ethic. I call or e-mail her with investment related questions and she always gets back to me promptly, usually the same day.  I would highly recommend Lauren to anyone buying or selling real estate in the Santa Cruz area."
Bill Nichols
"I congratulate you on finding a buyer for our Santa Cruz house.  You showed great patience, inventiveness and diplomacy in making sure that no matter what idiosyncratic challenges might arise, the sale would go through.  And it did, thanks you to you.  You are without question one of the best agents in the entire county."
Susan Swisher and Terry McClintock
"Thanks to Lauren for our smooth buying experience.  If not for her and her local network, we may have missed out on our perfect home.  We recommend her highly."

Jeff & Merle Froshman
"Merle & I wanted to write and thank you for doing such a wonderful job in selling our Aptos house.  Even though we have known you for several years and have referred a few clients to you, to experience your work first-hand was special for us.
When we asked you to assist us in selling the property, you asked us to be open-minded to your suggestions to put the house into its best possible light for selling.  We said we would.  You brought in the handyman, plumber and painter to do all the recommended fix-up items.  You told us what price range the house would best sell for.  Then you suggested we stage the house to give it a warm feeling to prospective buyers.  When it was completed, the house looked magnificent.
The results speak for themselves.  Within 10 days of listing the house, we received two offers.  Our escrow closed in less than 30 days.  We could not have been more pleased with the success you helped us experience.
Thank you so much for all your efforts.  It was our pleasure to work with you and whenever we can, we will keep referring business to you."
Sam & Pam Khadder
"When we decided to list our Capitola cottage with you, one of our main concerns was that by working with a high producing top agent in a large company, we would possibly be dealing with assistants after the initial CMA and listing presentation.  That concern soon proved to be totally unfounded and we have been very pleasantly surprised by how personally accessible to us you have been throughout the whole process. With your help and guidance, we had our property staged, listed and in a “sale pending” status within a couple of weeks of our initial meetings.  This has freed us up to move forward with our long term plans eventually to retire in the East Bay area. Thank you, Lauren; you professionally delivered on all of your promises and successfully marketed our property in a very short time.  We will keep in touch with you and will not hesitate to refer to you anyone looking to buy or sell in the Santa Cruz area."
