Client Testimonials

Betsy Allen & Janet Sims
"If you are considering buying or selling residential property, we can wholeheartedly recommend Lauren to work with you on that process. We can say that because she did both for us over a period of five months. Lauren is a delight and extraordinarily professional in doing the job. She was always available and responsive to our questions and needs. She embraced and patiently worked with our requests, but also knew when to gently prod us in the right direction to help us to reach our goals. Lauren also impressed us with her tenacious advocacy when it was necessary. Considering the very complicated work that we did together, we can't imagine a better advisor, advocate and friend to guide us through the process."

"When I decided to sell my townhouse, I was also going through a very difficult time in my personal life.
I think, I did a google search for the best realtor in Santa Cruz and Lauren's name popped up. I sent her an email "interest" form and she reached out to me pretty quickly. What I noticed and appreciated right from the beginning was her willingness to listen to me and be available to meet me in person on my terms.
We met a a local coffee shop and my first impression was that she was very knowledgeable, sincere and intelligent. I chose her as my realtor to help me sell my property and I'm really happy that I did.
I was very pleased with her marketing strategy and also that the property sold relatively quickly. Unfortunately, I tend to be a worrier, when I did start to stress, I felt comfortable calling or texting Lauren and she always set me at ease. Her expertise in her profession and her personable nature made this stressful experience much easier for me. I would recommend her to any friend or family member, and if I'm ever in need of a realtor again in Santa Cruz-It's a no brainer."
Larry & Denise Holser
"In 2016 we were moving to Virginia from Aptos, our Virginia realtor did research on.  She found Lauren Spencer to have the highest professional qualifications, and after interviewing her by phone, found her to be in her words "top notch."   We came to the same conclusion in our first meeting with her, after doing research on her, and finally working with her.

We were very impressed with Lauren's professionalism and honesty toward us and the buyers. We invested a lot of time and money to make our home of 23 years the best it could be for the new buyers.   Although we had first thought that it should sell for more than she suggested, she gave us the choice, but we took her advice on several things, including price and were glad that we did.   Our house did sell at a fair price for us and the buyers six days after it was listed.   We were in good hands with her from start to finish, and highly recommend her."
Mike & Ida Futch
"We were pleased to have Lauren Spencer represent us in the sale of our home.  She is an extremely experienced and highly professional real estate agent.  She was a pleasure to work with during the tedious and often contentious negotiation process, and her calm, patient and steady demeanor was truly an asset. Working with her was a pleasure and we highly recommend her."
Bob & Maureen Thrash
"This was the third time around using Lauren either as our listing agent or buying. She is simply great at what she does. Her advice at what to do prior to listing all the way thru close of escrow. We always knew where we were on the escrow time line so we were never left wondering "what's next?"
Anthony & Deborah V
"A short note from Deborah and myself to thank you for your efforts in selling our house. Actually, it is thanks for all your help over the years with the house its purchase in 2007, when you found us our dream home, to its recent selling, when it was time to move on to our next stage of life. You handled both the buying and selling very professionally, greatly minimizing our anxiety during the process. The recent sale, through your marketing and presentation guidance, resulted in an offer within a week of listing and a final price that we were happy with. Between the purchase and the sale, you were always available to assist us with anything related to our home be it referrals to local business with which you were familiar to assisting us with property value information for refinancing. We could not have asked for anything more from a real estate professional thank you so much!"
