Lauren Spencer is an outstanding real estate agent. She has a natural knack for knowing her clients’ desires and needs and expertly guiding them through property purchase or sale. She is well informed about the real estate market, the communities, and house qualities and values in different neighborhoods. Lauren was our realtor in 1994 when we bought our beautiful Aptos home. Recently, after our retirement, she helped us sell that same house. Plus, during that 27 year interval, when we turned to her for real estate questions and advice, she always demonstrated topnotch professional skills. For the sale of our house, she guided us on how to best present the house for top dollar. During the sale she expertly led us through each step: from preparing the house for photos, to showing the house, responding to bids, negotiations and closing. After the sale, she continued to be available to us. Lauren is the kind of lifelong realtor everyone should have.
