We worked with Lauren to acquire a new home in Aptos. Our decision to work with her in the first place was the best decision we made in the entire process. We spent several months searching with Lauren. She shared many listings for us to consider but, because we had very specific needs, there was very little on the market that fit just right. Finally, something came on the market that was right, and Lauren knew exactly what to do. We viewed the home the first day it was open (Lauren made us aware of the listing before it was actually live). Lauren reviewed all of the disclosures carefully (there were a lot), and helped us negotiate a successful offer that week. In spite of 10 other offers, we got the house. No bidding wars, no lost opportunities, no frustrations, no BS. Lauren was the consummate professional throughout. Aware of our needs, deeply familiar with all of the nuances of the local market, and realistic in light of challenging market circumstances, Lauren's presence ensured that everything worked out as it should have. We would call Lauren again before considering anyone else.

Lauren helped us to sell our home, and it was a true pleasure to work with her! She helped prepare our home for sale (staging, truly professional photos, appropriate inspections in advance, etc.), reached out to her many close contacts, and had multiple offers for us within days. She helped guide us through a multi-offer process and the typical (yet always unique to each sale) steps to close. We were very pleased with Lauren's professionalism, her responsiveness and her being just a very nice person! We highly recommend Lauren and believe you will enjoy working with her just as much as we did.

If we could give 10 stars we would. Just finished a difficult but very successful listing with Lauren and she was an absolute professional and a delight to work with. With us trying to sell a home belonging to an estate 800 miles away we expected a difficult process but Lauren could not have been more proactive, creative and responsive. I have worked with hundreds of Real Estate Agents in my work and Lauren absolutely is at the top of the list. She worked well beyond her commission and responsibility, made sure any bumps were smoothed out immediately and ended up selling the home basically in the midst of a forest fire with it closing near full ask and quickly as well. If you need an agent anywhere in the Santa Cruz area, RUN don't walk to Lauren and I absolutely guarantee you will be so happy with that choice!

Lauren was our buying agent when we bought our Santa Cruz Gardens home in 2011 and our selling agent when we sold in in November 2020. She did a fantastic job on both occasions and I recommend her without hesitation. She really knows the business and she gets things done. She has an intimate knowledge of our area and the market and she has lots of friends and connections. She has a remarkable ability to communicate what she thinks is the right move with confidence and just a tiny bit of push without any sense of pressure. This is a true skill and a very necessary one in a realtor, particularly when her client, like me, is less familiar with the process and needs a bit of help making up his mind and committing to big decisions. Thank you Lauren!!

I am so grateful to Lauren for going above and beyond to help me sell a home in Santa Cruz and buy another. Lauren walked me through every step of the transactions and was ALWAYS available to answer my questions, refer me to needed contractors, and provide general support and encouragement. Without her experience, expertise, and reputation in Santa Cruz County, I am not sure we would have gotten the sale or purchase done. Thank you, Lauren!!!
