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.
