Shawn & Tonie Ogimachi"I'd like to give Lauren Spencer my strongest recommendation. I typically don't like realtors, but I like really Lauren Spencer. My wife and I contacted her a year before our sale for recommendations and consulting on everything from timing to price. Her suggestions were spot on, and we followed her advice which resulted in a quick and profitable sale!
Lauren has in-depth knowledge of Santa Cruz County real estate that goes far beyond Zillow and Trulia. While these tools are valuable, her expertise is supercedes what the Internet provides. I would describe her as extremely professional, even keeled, and she's an expert in both traditional and electronic marketing, as well as a savvy real-estate insider. Lauren is sharp, intelligent and possessing both a high IQ and EQ. I really appreciate that she keeps the drama out of the business of selling and buying a home. If you'd prefer your real estate transaction to be a business deal rather than a reality TV show episode, she's your agent! Ask any realtor in the county: Lauren has earned the respect of her colleagues and clients.
For us, working with Lauren was the best choice we could have made."
Steve Heppner"The ultimate professional. After having sold five previous homes, I thought I had seen it all, but, the best was yet to come with Lauren, the best real estate agent ever. She can market a home like no other, meticulous in her detail, follow up extraordinaire, communication skills that keep you fully informed during every step of the sales process plus a wonderful person. What more could you ask for, she sold me and my house."
Joanne Etheridge"I have had a great experience with Lauren Spencer recently in selling my property and finding and purchasing a new property. I have known Lauren since 2010 when she helped me originally sell our family home and down size to a new home. Lauren provides valuable support throughout the process. She is reliable and I can trust her input to be honest/realistic and loyal. I would recommend Lauren to anyone who is embarking on the often stressful venture of selling a home or buying a new one."
Mike & Paula Pailliotet"Lauren just finished up selling our Aptos home for us.
It was not an easy sale in any way shape or form but Lauren remained cool calm and collected. Her professionalism really shined through even at moments when she could have said "I told you so!"
Lesson, learned, never second-guess a pro like Lauren.
Three thumbs up!"
Joe Greene & Carolyn Greene"When my mother decided to sell her Aptos house, I knew it would be important to find a good realtor. We found Lauren through her website, which presented a wealth of information, and I am very happy we hired her. She is very professional, and stayed in good communication throughout the process. How much fixing up and remodeling to do to get a house ready to sell can be very subjective, and everyone seems to have a different strong opinion about it. We decided to trust Lauren's advice and experience, investing in a number of repairs and changes as well as staging in the belief that it would make the house sell quickly and we would get back more than we invested. I am happy to say that is exactly what happened. Lauren made the process very easy for us, getting bids, coordinating the work, and following up after each step. The photography and marketing were well done. The house sold quickly, and for a good price. I would not hesitate to recommend Lauren to anyone considering selling their house."
Bob & Doris Witte"We have had a remarkable experience having Lauren Spencer as our realtor when selling our house during July-August, 2015. From the moment of her initial appearance, she displayed total competence, with all relevant data, including comps, at her fingertips. Every bit as important, she possesses a wonderfully soothing demeanor and earned our complete trust almost immediately. She astutely guided us through the numerous problems, both large and small, that accompany the selling of a house. We are delighted to give Lauren our enthusiastic endorsement; she is the kind of agent that we will recommend, with total confidence, to our friends and neighbors."
