Karen & Larry Solomon"Lauren is a smart professional with a prestigious real estate background. We were treated with consideration & respect and felt valued as her clients. We appreciated her working with us to get 'our price' for the sale of our Capitola condo. We are very happy with the outcome and she comes with our highest recommendations."
Bruce & Andrea Willy"Your kindness, professionalism, and expertise made the process of preparing a home for sale and then purchasing another home, a calm, thought and personal process. We think back now and realize how fortunate we were to have your sound advice and wisdom based upon years of experience, to help us navigate the sale of a unique property with a certainty and confidence that kept our stress to a minimum. You took the time to get to know our hopes and vision of the future which focused our time and emotional energy in the right places. Each and every recommendation from you for contractors, stagers, or inspectors were people of your same caliber, professional, courteous and client oriented. We so appreciated your level of availability during the sale and purchase transactions.
You made our experience one with the calm coming before, during and after the storm. For this, we are forever grateful. When we get to move in you'll need to come by and enjoy an evening by the fire on the patio with us."
Tom & Lauren Tobin"It was great working with you. I trusted Michael when he recommended you and he did not steer us wrong. Thank you for your consistently calm, patient and supportive presence. It made the whole experience much easier and more pleasant for us.
We will absolutely recommend you to anyone we know looking for an agent. And if, sometime, we decide to look again ourselves, you are the one we will call."
Emily DuBois"I bought a new home last month, after 30 years in my old home, and joined the "huge fan of Lauren Spencer" club. Everything I had heard about her turns out to be true: she is smart, savvy, charming, unflappable, and a gold-standard expert. She had my back and made it a great experience and fun, even though I am a stickler for details who reads every document with a highlighter and a red pen. Lauren was on it the whole time, a calm step ahead of me, spotting issues I missed, tracking down information I needed, giving me wise counsel so I didn't get caught in rookie mistakes. You couldn't ask for a better guide and partner through the complexities of real estate sales process, I'm so grateful to have worked with her."
Ray P Christensen"With more than 50 years in general construction and real estate development, I was in need of a real estate agent to sell a townhouse in Aptos, California. I did an online search and selected Lauren Spencer with Coldwell Banker in Aptos, California due to her excellent reviews. Lauren evaluated the property and made recommendations for upgrading and staging the residence. I was somewhat hesitant on staging the property, however I decided to follow Lauren's advice. Lauren did an outstanding job of material selection and obtaining subcontractor bids. Furthermore, she scheduled and supervised the work which was accomplished in an efficient and high quality manner. The townhouse was sold in only 7 days for the highest price paid for a unit of its type in the complex it was located in. Lauren is very knowledgeable, thorough and well organized and demonstrates exceptional skill and performance in her role as a real estate agent. I highly recommend her to any buyer or seller of residential property."
James & Rosa Kraebber"As background, I was an international business executive for over 50 years, living in Paris, France. We recently arrived in this California area and were not at all aware of all the challenges in this housing market. The purpose of the memo is to highlight the impressive effectiveness of Lauren Spencer in helping us find our new home in the very difficult 2017 Central Coast California real estate market. We were referred to Lauren Spencer by our daughter, Vanessa Kehoe who also had a very positive experience with Lauren. We had rented a small home but were obligated to leave a bit earlier than we expected and this meant considerable time pressure. Lauren took our cause to heart and, most fortunately was able to show us a home that was not yet officially on the market. In a period of two days, Lauren was able to get our offer accepted, and in less than three weeks we arranged our mortgage and closed. Truly record time. At all stages of this process Lauren was a crucial factor. Impressive. I can only recommend Lauren Spencer should anyone have real estate needs."
