Client Testimonials

"Lauren is both the most professional and personable real estate agent we have ever encountered, and she made the usual agony of house hunting and buying a smooth process. (This is our third.) First, Lauren knows the market and stays on top of all events affecting real estate sales and purchases.  But what makes her exceptional is her ability to balance consummate professionalism with warmth and sensitivity.  She is always available, always supportive, always helpful.  And yet, she is never intrusive or overbearing. I can't say enough positively about her and I'm afraid that if I try it will sound unbelievable.  But believe me, Lauren is superb and we recommend her without reservation."

"Lauren Spencer made our experience as first-time home-buyers as straightforward and smooth as possible. In fact, Lauren made it clear to us that no question would be left unanswered, and that she was prepared to search for the house that would prove to be “the right fit”. Once we found the property, which eventually became our home, Lauren proved to be an outstanding advocate, representing us and negotiation contract details in a manner that proved to be composed and firm. Our experience purchasing a home was extremely positive, particularly since we felt that Lauren Spencer was working hard to find just the right place for us, negotiating the contract in our best interest, and making sure that our house became the home we wanted it to be.  We whole-heartedly recommend Lauren Spencer as a realtor to any future home-buyer."

"I wanted to thank you for a quick and painless sale of my house. I picked you as my agent out of five that I interviewed, because you listened to what I had to say and responded in a way that showed you heard me. You saved me extra money by enrolling me in a sellers' warranty and provided workers who could work on my house in a timely manner or used the ones that I provided. In all respects you were professional and yet personal. Thanks again."

"Thank you so much for all your help in purchasing our wonderful new home in Santa Cruz. Because we were house hunting from Boston, Massachusetts, it was challenging finding a home that we felt comfortable putting an offer on in a limited amount of time. You were very patient with us as we honed in on neighborhoods we liked. You were also very knowledgeable because all your experience in the Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley areas and helped us learn about appropriate pricing through looking at many similar homes in the same neighborhood. You were friendly but firm during our negotiations and helped us navigate a somewhat unusual situation. Lastly, the list of vendors that you gave us once we bought our home was instrumental in helping us find local roofers, electricians, and other service people, who have been great. We love our new home and thank you for helping us find it!"

"It was so great to finally close all five properties.  We wanted to tell you that you were instrumental through this entire process.  We absolutely could not have pulled this off without your help with the sellers in keeping their interest in us as buyers and their wiliness to grant the extensions we needed to sell our properties.  It was a pleasure to work with you. "

"\Working with Lauren was an absolute pleasure. I was from out the area and wanted to optimize our time together, so we arranged an afternoon to view properties and explore neighborhoods. When we met, I quickly saw that Lauren clearly understood my requirements. She put together a list of properties that not only met my needs, but included the house that I made an offer on the next day, and subsequently purchased. Following that, Lauren pulled together a team of experts to expedite the inspections, all aspects of the close, and get me into the house in record time. Overall, I’m thrilled with my purchase and Lauren’s commitment to excellence. I strongly recommend Lauren. I would certainly buy or sell a house with her again!"
