Naomi Dauermann, Daniel & Jim Green
"Naomi: After our elderly mother passed last September, my brothers and I were faced with the daunting task of refurbishing her seriously outdated Aptos condo and selling it. We knew that one of us needed to oversee the many repairs and upgrades, new floors, fixtures and appliances that would make our property market ready and move it quickly. But who? And how? We lived hundreds of miles away and hundreds of miles apart! Then, we found Lauren Spencer! Her experience, connections, market savvy and sensitivity were a perfect match for us and our situation. While I was the official seller who handled bills and signatures, each sibling got to see and weigh in on proposed repairs and improvements as Lauren took the time to hear from all of us.
Daniel adds: Lauren is extremely familiar with the Aptos neighborhood and its comp values, and we couldn't have found anyone better networked with the services and subcontractors we needed to employ. I felt assured that for every dollar invested, we could see two, possibly three in return. Ultimately, that's exactly what happened!
From Jim: Lauren supervised a complete renovation of our mother's condo, which took a LOT of effort on her part. Lauren listened to our wishes to hold down costs and invested our money wisely and tastefully. She brought this home from 1980 to 2014 in less than a month! We found our buyer the first week the condo was listed -- before the first open house. I could not be more pleased.
We all agree that Lauren Spencer was the best realtor we could have chosen to conduct the restoration and selling process, all the way through to the close of escrow. Thanks so much, Lauren!"
