Client Testimonials

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!"

"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."

"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."
Amanda Bishop
"I recently moved in to my new home and I couldn't be happier with the result. Lauren took care of me from the first email to signing the paper at the end. I am a first time buyer and I was more than a little nervous about getting started.  Lauren listened to what I wanted and guided me through each step along the way.  She wanted me to find a house I love -- that fits me -- and wouldn't let me settle.  It didn't take very many visits before we found that house, which began the daunting process of offers, counter offers, and escrow.  Lauren masterfully managed all of it in a way that I wasn't scared or intimidated.  When I did freak out, she told me exactly what I needed to hear to keep moving forward.  I'm now living in the home I love thanks to Lauren."
Andy McSorley & Joy Fields
"Lauren is the consummate professional in every way. She is eminently knowledgeable about the marketplace, incredibly thorough and diligent at every step of the process, and genuinely caring and thoughtful during what can be a stressful experience for many people.

Lauren guided us through the sale of our home from start to finish and over-delivered by getting us multiple offers over asking price, within a week of listing on MLS! Lauren provided us with excellent guidance as we navigated the counter-offer process and made sure that our best interests were considered and protected. We strongly recommend Lauren to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Santa Cruz area."

"I recently sold the same house with Lauren that I purchased with her 6 1/2 years ago. The marketing, sale and level of professionalism from Lauren again exceeded my expectations. We received a great deal of interest and sold the house at a great price very quickly, which was exactly what I had hoped for. Thank you, Lauren, for again exceeding my real estate transaction expectations. I highly recommend Lauren as an agent to buyers and sellers, and would buy and/or sell a house with her again!"
