"Choosing Spencer for the sale of our Cambridge condo was a fantastic decision. He was thoughtful, detail oriented, responsive and super knowledgeable about the local market. His marketing and pricing strategy was executed flawlessly and our outcome was exactly as he predicted. He seamlessly coordinated showings, inspections, and appraisals with our tenant and really relieved the stress of selling our home. Hiring Spencer is a 100% no brainer. If you are buying or selling a property in the Greater Boston area there is nobody better." - Mike T
"Spencer is a Cambridge real estate genius. I've worked with several agents in the area, and Spencer is head-and-shoulders above them in his understanding of market timing and pricing. He secured an outstanding offer for my condo that was well above the listing (and market) price, and then followed up to ensure the transaction was closed quickly and successfully. A true professional." - Simon S
"I am so glad that I ended up working with Spencer for my first condo purchase. Throughout the process, he was patient, responsive, helpful and humorous when the occasion called for it! He helped me put together an offer-even giving input on the offer letter--that helped me get my first offer accepted, even though the property had multiple offers in the competitive market. Although I had no experience in the real estate market and asked a lot of questions, I never felt pressured to go higher than I needed to. Spencer provided a great balance of perspective and straight facts that enabled me to move forward in my comfort level while understanding the realities of the Boston area housing market. After the offer was accepted, Spencer went above and beyond, giving me recommendations for home improvements and general advice. I am very grateful to him and would recommend him without hesitation!" - Dvora T.
"I had done a lot of house-hunting, and realtor-hunting, prior to meeting Spencer, and after working with him for a week, I dropped all other relationships. Spencer is hands-down the best professional I worked with over my long search. His detailed property-level knowledge of Cambridge and Somerville far exceeded anyone else's, he was honest and candid in his feedback of each property, and he had amazing negotiating advice that helped me win a competitive bidding process. Even more, Spencer was always available when I got nervous or needed questions answered, and there's no way I would have ended up with my amazing new home without him. I couldn't endorse Spencer more strongly, and give him 5 stars across the board." - Ted W.
"Spencer, Lauren and their team were a pleasure to work with and we recommend them in the highest possible terms. The Cambridge market is complicated, fast-moving, and highly competitive, and Spencer was phenomenal in helping us prepare and market our property to get the best price and smoothest escrow possible, which made our subsequent purchase (nearly!) worry-free." - David O.
"I don't think you could find a better agent and get the full-service that Spencer and his team provide. He does whatever it takes and has access to great people and contacts. We were able to use his recommendations in the remodeling we're now doing on the house we bought, so his involvement doesn't end with the sale. He still checks in on us and provides great ideas for the remodel since we'll definitely be using him again if (or when) we sell our new house, which hopefully won't be for a while!" -Sarah P.

Spencer Lane has enjoyed a distinguished real estate career as one of the top agents in the Cambridge and Somerville area - a cumulative metric based on sales volume, positive online reviews, and referrals.
Spencer’s success in real estate sales is due to many factors: experience, strategy, integrity, and a client-first mentality rounded out by expert negotiating skills. You don’t often meet someone who’s been in real estate their entire career, and that gives him a unique advantage. Spencer learned the ropes as his mother’s assistant before they decided to team up. They worked as a mother-son duo for 10 years in the Cambridge market and surrounding towns. In 2013, he added his wife Lauren to the team with whom he has partnered since, and in 2018 partnered with his best friends Maggie Currier and Chris Young forming “Currier, Lane & Young”. By joining Compass in 2018, he is eager to situate his team among Cambridge’s top agents with tech-based tools for heightened client experiences and early access to a growing market share.
Though he admits he is opinionated, meticulous and very competitive, these traits pair harmoniously with his detailed recall/memory of every property he has ever visited and his client-oriented approach to assure you’re working with a consummate professional.
Originally from Los Angeles, Spencer graduated from Miami University of Ohio with a B.S. in Business/Organizational Leadership. He has lived in Cambridge, Somerville, Arlington, Belmont and, now, Lincoln. When at home in Lincoln, he enjoys playing in the backyard with his daughters Simone and Theia, his wife Lauren, and their flock of egg-laying hens.
As a Licensed Broker, Spencer specializes in home sales around the Cambridge, Somerville and Greater Boston areas, plus has expertise with investment properties as an owner of many rental units. His goal is to provide such an impressive level of knowledge, skill, care, and professionalism that everyone he works with feels compelled to recommend him to their closest family and friends.
