Client Testimonials

Gregory Dodd
"I highly recommend Lauren. While Lauren’s area of expertise lies in Santa Cruz County she was unafraid of helping me sell the family home in San Jose. Selling my Mother’s home after her passing was a difficult task, but Lauren helped me every step of the way. She helped me make the difficult decisions, made suggestions as to what needed to be done to my Mom’s home in order to have it present better, and she has a vast network of professionals to help with any of the work that needs to be done to the house. Lauren’s extensive knowledge in real estate was reflected in the fact that she knew just how to price the home. Even in the rough real estate market that we are in, the house sold very quickly and we got our asking price. I won’t use any other Real Estate Agent whether it is buying or selling a home."

"Lauren came highly recommended by a family member in the real estate business. We were thoroughly pleased with her throughout the process of buying a home in Santa Cruz.  She is very experienced and knows the market in Santa Cruz.  We had just had a baby and it was difficult to find time to get to her office, so she came to our apartment countless times.  She was always available by phone and e-mail and touched base with us frequently.  Lauren was so efficient at getting inspections scheduled and paperwork done that we were able to close escrow early, which saved us money.   It's obvious to us that Lauren really cares about finding her clients the house they want and making the process go smoothly.  We would highly recommend her!"

"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."
Michael & Vicki Stone
"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!"
