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.

When we decided to sell our home of 24 years, Lauren was recommended to us by a trusted friend. We began a 6-month process of renovation and marketing that was more like a partnership than a client relationship. Lauren was always a pleasure to spend time with, highly professional, and had a huge Rolodex of painters, plumbers, carpenters, and stagers. Because we are still in the neighborhood, and even though the market is "hot," we were looking for a special sort of buyer. Lauren was able to market our house superbly and found us highly-qualified "local" buyers while still reaching the top of the market. Lauren earned every penny of her commission and is the jewel in the crown of Santa Cruz area realtors!

Amy Jeske is the best realtor ever! She is extremely knowledgeable about the Santa Cruz/Capitola/Aptos area and does an amazing job of getting to know you and your tastes and needs, recognizing when she sees houses you will like and bringing you to see them quickly (as needed in this lightning fast market). Having worked in this market for a long time, she knows the other realtors in the area well, and is great at working with people and negotiating. Not only did she help us to get our dream house, she also thought about and oversaw details far beyond what she would've had to do, involving work that needed to be done into the future on our new home. She is super smart and fun and available whenever you need to go and see properties. Can't recommend Amy Jeske highly enough!"

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!!!

I really got to know Lauren well when she represented me as the seller of my mountain home of 40 years. She knew exactly what upgrades were needed in order to maximize its sale potential. I invested in her expert advice as she brought in high quality professionals from her many local contacts to transform its dated interior into something more modern that would appeal to today's buyers. She has an extensive marketing program, using a crew of excellent stagers, photographers, and multimedia advertisers. Not only did I get an excellent price for my home, but I have the satisfaction of knowing that I was represented by someone of the highest integrity and decency. Lauren is an exceptional realtor and a wonderful person. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
