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!
