What do you get when you combine a teacher, a comedian and a COO? Either the start of a really bad joke or an attentive, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and entertaining real estate agent.
In this case, we've got the latter.
Lauren Herskovic, founding member of Moda Group at and creator of the popular “Who Wants to be a Homebuyer” Trivia Night, specializes in helping first time homebuyers in Chicago. The homebuying process is opaque, and the investment is huge, making it scary and overwhelming first time homebuyers. But Lauren’s focus on educating her clients, constant communication, and utilizing tried and true systems, make a seamless and (dare we say it?!) fun experience her clients.
“Lauren was hands down the best resource we could have asked in looking our first condo. Not did she guide us through the whole process smoothly, but every other resource she recommended, from inspectors to lenders to attorneys, was incredible.” - Kelly, First Time Homebuyer in Chicago
“As first time homebuyers, we really enjoyed working with Lauren. She guided us through each step of the process seamlessly, and ensured that we were comfortable and knowledgeable all along the way. Lauren was always available to answer our (many) questions and give great advice. She was also proactive in reaching out to us, rather than waiting for us to come to her, which we really appreciated.” - Kimmie, First Time Homebuyer in Chicago
Lauren grew up in suburban Detroit and now lives in Logan Square. She got a BA in English and Secondary Education from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!). She then served as Editor in Chief for an online women’s magazine in NYC before working as COO for a consulting company based in Chicago, taking the company from a 3-person operation to a team of 100+ with offices in the US and China.
In her free time, she plays tennis, takes pictures of her food and binge-watches Bravo with her Toy Poodle, Harvey.
