Bob & Maureen Thrash
"I'd like to take a few moments to let you know how grateful Bob and I are to you for all your help with our recent life-change. When Bob and I saw the a "For Sale" sign on the condo we had been wishing for, Bob turned to me and said, "Call Lauren". You not only secured the purchase for us, but provided the expert advice we needed to get our old house spruced up, on the market and SOLD within a few short (exhausting) weeks. We never could have done this without your encouragement and the fact that we knew we could rely on your years of experience and good advice We couldn't be happier with our new place."

"I have appreciated and enjoyed working alongside Lauren, who has been our real estate agent and broker concerning purchase or sales, on more than one occasion. Lauren is a very capable person and does an excellent job.  Her qualifications and skills are exceptional. Her method of operation and management is a quiet efficiency. Her character is exceedingly commendable.  She maintains a gentle, patient, and harmonizing spirit while she works at a high level of professionalism.  In critical situations, I have found her to be trustworthy and honest.  She is insightful, offers helpful suggestion, and her attitude is always willing and constructive.  Also I am impressed with the fact that when she handles a transaction, there is no messes left behind, any disgruntled parties that have to be satisfied, and the job is “finished”.  "

"I analyze the performance of real estate agents for a living, and I can attest that Lauren Spencer is within the top 1% of all agents in the area in which she specializes. Many agents claim to be in the top 1% of one statistic or another. But regrettably, these statistics are often misleading. I have researched the performance of every single listing agent in Lauren's area.  Factoring in not only the number of homes sold, but, importantly, percent sold (vs. expired), number of days to sell, sale price vs. original asking price, an apples-to-apples comparison against her peers, Lauren Spencer is indeed within the top 1% of all agents in her area."
Blake & Barbara Stone
"When you helped us find and purchase our dream home in Aptos we had no idea we’d be moving to Seattle a short 2 years later. During the hectic move, your guidance and counseling provided a reassuring calm. We are very grateful for your invaluable help in preparing our house for sale and for your knowledge of the Santa Cruz County real estate market. Thanks to your expertise and attention to detail, closing escrow by long distance was almost effortless. You are an excellent realtor for both buyers and sellers and we consider you a dear friend. We are enjoying life in Seattle but we miss being able to rely on your website for contractor referrals and other community tips. "
Morgan & Elizabeth Van Dyke
"We cannot thank you enough for your professional assistance in selling our home. It especially helped to meet with you months before we put our home on the market.  As a result, the house sold above the asking price and we had three firm offers from which to choose. It was such a relief to feel we could trust you to listen to us, be available, follow through and take care of the many details.  We have never had such a good experience with a realtor.  Your excellent reputation is well warranted. "
Tom and Pam Schwartz
"Thank you so much for our seamless transition from our old home and into our new one.  We truly appreciate your responsiveness to our concerns. You have a tremendous knack for understanding really what we wanted in our property and only selecting properties that meet our criteria; unlike so many other Realtors that bombard us with listings that we knew would not work out.  This was our second experience working with you and you have shined on each occasion.  We will definitely recommend you to anyone in need of a real estate agent.
