Client Testimonials

Jonathan & Cathy Botta

Lauren Spencer has been an amazing asset both in selling our home and in buying a new one! Throughout all of our interactions she has been professional, prompt, helpful and knowledgeable. Lauren's experience was essential in selling our home. She was able to market it appropriately and offered good advice when it came time to accept an offer. She had our best interest in mind throughout the entire process and helped to make it a smooth transaction. As for buying a new home, I feel like we were kind of picky in our wants and needs. However, Lauren was sure to show us any property that we were interested in, even if she didn't feel it was the right fit. She always offered good, sound advice, which was a true reflection of her experience and knowledge of the real estate industry, especially in our local area. She brought about an expertise and perspective that helped us consider all things about the houses we looked at and in the end, we were able to find a home that best suited our needs for now and for the future! We are more than happy with our new home and are very thankful that we were able to work with Lauren Spencer!

"We recently sold our home in the Uplands at Seascape. There were some perceived issues with the property, close to a main thoroughfare and a vacant lot next door. It took 3 years to finally sell it. We worked with Lauren Spencer with Coldwell Banker during the three-year period. She remained positive in spite of the perceived issues and marketed the property extensively. We had numerous open houses but Lauren always scheduled them so that they were a minimum interference for us. She also made sure that visits by potential buyers were scheduled at reasonable times.
Once we got an offer on the house Lauren impressed us with her knowledge of the documentation required and helped us in achieving the best possible outcome. The buyers made three offers below our asking price and each time, at Lauren's advice, we countered with our asking price and finally got our asking price.
We will be back in the market shortly and would not consider working with anyone but Lauren. We would recommend her highly to anyone."

"We can't thank you enough for being our extraordinary realtor!
We have told people that you were excellent in everything you did. Instead of using pressure, you were patiently waiting for us until we came around. You were reassuring when we were discouraged, and had contacts at your fingertips to get things we needed done by the deadline. We had faith everything would turn out fine, when we signed on with you, because not only were you excited about helping us sell, you worked diligently and were always there whenever we needed help. You came through with all that you said, and thanks to you we made it to the finish line.
We also enjoyed visiting the office staff with their first class hospitality and great coffee."

"Lauren Spencer recently helped me sell my home in Santa Cruz. She was prompt, courteous, and professional at all times. Most importantly, though, I felt my best interests were paramount in her approach to selling my home. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Santa Cruz County. I look forward to working with Lauren on another transaction in the future!"

"Wow, Lauren was fantastic! Never did I imagine that selling my house could be so easy! Lauren responded immediately to my inquiry and promptly provided me with an excellent and professional marketing proposal. I knew instantly I was in the right hands. She gave me current and accurate information about my house and the recent market activity, and a property analysis summary showed what I could expect to receive for my home. This was all done without the Hard-Sell technique, which I really appreciated! The photographs posted of my home were top notch and showed the very best of my home! Thanks again Lauren, it truly was a delight to work with you!"
