"Thanks Lauren, for all your help on our townhouse acquisition in Aptos this June. You were very helpful in all aspects of the process – you know the area, are experienced, understand the market, and most importantly you were very interested in understanding our needs and locating the best property for us! Finally, you are a very nice person and we enjoyed the experience. Today we are sitting in our property enjoying all the excellent work we accomplished to get here. If you need any references for future clients – send them my way. Once again – thanks. "

"Thank you so much for guiding and helping Gary and I purchase our dream home in Day Valley, Aptos, Calif. Lauren, you made the entire process of buying a home seem so easy.  You had so many referrals for everything from mortgage lenders to handymen at your fingertips.  You promptly answered all of our phone calls, we never waited to hear back from you.  Our 30 day escrow closed according to your timetable and we moved in the very next day!  How good does that get?  It was beyond our wildest dreams. You are the ultimate realtor, with sincerity and professionalism. "

"Three years ago we found Lauren on-line.  We were interested in purchasing a condo in Santa Cruz for our daughter to use while she went to UCSC.   Lauren found exactly what we were looking for.  We had 3 great years there.  My daughter graduated last November so we decided to put it on the market in the spring.  We contact Lauren in mid-March of 2008 about selling our condo.  Lauren put it all together. From a distance for us, Lauren found a painter, carpet person and stager, all the components we needed to revitalize the condo and set it up to sell.  Let me tell you, Lauren had our condo sold in 3 weeks from the date it went on the market. 3 weeks!  It is only through Lauren's experience, contacts and hustle that we were able to pull this off.  There is no doubt, if we ever need real estate in the Santa Cruz area, we will be calling Lauren Spencer.

"We found Lauren by researching MLS and comparing how agents presented their listings. Lauren's listings were by far the most outstanding ones we found which included high-quality professional photographs and nicely-worded descriptions. Once we met Lauren and saw the care she puts into her advertising and marketing, we knew she was the right agent for us. In a highly-competitive buyer's market, we ended up with two offers and one over asking price, and we were only on the market for 45 days. We will be recommending Lauren to anyone in need of an excellent real estate professional. "
Matt and Laura Westerman and family
"We wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work and efforts toward getting our house sold.  We know what a challenging market it is right now, but we felt comfortable knowing that you were representing us.  Your professionalism, punctuality, and dedication put our minds at ease.  Initially I was concerned having to sell a property so far from where we lived.  You did a great job keeping us informed with showings and advertising.  We are very pleased with the price too!  Thanks again, and we would feel comfortable recommending you to anyone.  "

"Lauren was truly wonderful.  She exceeded all my expectations with respect to the purchase of my first home. She remained focused on finding and delivering a home that worked best for me with respect to my lifestyle, budget and taste. She listened to what I wanted, identified what I was interested in and used her significant knowledge of the Santa Cruz area to find me just the right home I was looking for. She made it obvious that she is a realtor who CARES about her clients needs and desires. I could not be more pleased wit her masterful negotiations and extreme professionalism. Her faithful follow-up after the close of the purchase was appreciated.  It was a pleasure working with her.  It is very apparent that she loves what she does. I would not hesitate to use or refer my friends and family to Lauren for any real estate transaction. "
