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 went above and beyond to help us throughout and after the home buying process. We were purchasing our home remotely and she was great with providing video tours as well as being very responsive. We have now closed on the house, and she is continuing to help us with our needs until we arrive. We highly recommend her for anyone needing a home in Santa Cruz County!

We recently sold my parents’ home with Lauren Spencer. We don’t live in Santa Cruz and were concerned that we find someone we could work with from a long distance .  She came well recommended and we found her to be an amazing source of information and experience in preparing their home for sale.  It was such a relief to let Lauren take over and create a light, bright, attractive home that we could never have imagined. She kept in constant contact by phone and email with photos of the progress, and we had several Zoom calls and conference calls  as she updated us on the improvements.  She was pleasant and encouraging and based upon our final sale after just one open house showed her incredible talent for knowing just the right things to do.  We are very grateful for the professionalism and expertise that Lauren brought to our experience.

Lauren Spencer is an outstanding realtor. She did a fantastic job of selling our Rio Del Mar home. The list of skills she has would be a long list. She listens well, has creative ideas, is prompt with communication. Our home needed to be made more presentable. Lauren has a long list of very professional contacts that did a wonderful job. We used gardeners, plumbers, painters, stagers, cleaners and a handy man. The home looked wonderful. Lauren also knows very well all the intricacies of the paperwork required for a house sale. She always knew what and when a signature was needed. We were able to get almost 50% over our asking price. I would wholeheartedly suggest Lauren Spencer to provide for your real estate needs.
