"Lauren was fantastic! She went above and beyond both finding me a place to rent and then helping me find my dream home to purchase! She’s an absolute joy to work with and I cannot imagine getting through this process without her! If you need a real estate agent, Lauren is your person!" - Iiroff W ★★★★★
"Lauren is amazing! She sees all sorts of details in houses that you might otherwise miss, has tons of expertise, and was really good at reading what type of home we were looking for even when we ourselves weren't totally aware yet. She is really available and communicative. She makes the mess of paperwork easy to work thru and breaks things down into their simplest actionable steps, which was especially useful for us as first-timers. She was also extremely helpful during the negotiation process, which we were unsure how to approach at first. We found Lauren thru 2 friends (also first-time home buyers) who'd already worked with her; their recommendation made us feel confident that Lauren was a great choice for us and she was!" - Margo M ★★★★★
"As first-time homebuyers, we were fortunate to have Lauren guide us through the process. Her expertise, dedication, and patience made our journey to finding our home seamless and enjoyable. She understood our needs, provided invaluable insights, and negotiated skillfully on our behalf. Lauren went above and beyond, offering personalized support every step of the way and ensuring we felt confident and informed. Her professionalism and kindness truly set her apart. We highly recommend Lauren Morihara to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thank you for sticking with us through all that back forth." - Jesse Bracho ★★★★★
"In short, Lauren is the kind of real estate agent everyone hopes for but rarely gets. First of all, Lauren listened. You would be surprised how rare that is the real estate game. Then, Lauren acted. And oh boy did she ever act. Not only did she get us the exact house we wanted, she helped motivate the seller that we were the right couple for him to sell to. She even prodded the agent selling our house in California to toe the line. She couldn't have been more helpful if she had offered to wash my car or loan me a kidney. What more could you ask for? You would be wise to use Lauren Morihara as your real estate agent." - Phoebe Warren ★★★★★
"Lauren is thoughtful, incredibly knowledgeable, and kind. She was consistently easy to reach and responsive. Her friendly and open attitude made us feel comfortable right away! Lauren is honest and thorough, and I valued her expert opinion in the search process. Lauren was committed to helping us find a condo in Center City that was a great fit. She truly is a joy to work with, and excellent at what she does. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!" - Bob Bundens

★★★★★
"Lauren did a great job of helping us find and close on our apartment in Philly. We met her at the very start our search, the home we looked at was not a fit for us, but Lauren’s knowledge/expertise certainly was. Throughout the process she kept us well informed of listings with great input on visibility of locations and market price knowledge. I’d say her greatest strength is her willingness to listen to clients wants and add value guidance to help steer along that path. Well done."

★★★★★
"Lauren represented us in our condo search in Philadelphia and was very helpful throughout the process in tracking down details and information on each property, and kept us well informed at each stage of the transaction. She was very patient and knowledgable about the area, and was able to provide pros and cons of specific buildings. I would recommend Lauren to anyone searching for a home in the Philadelphia area!"

★★★★★
"We recently contracted with Lauren Morihara to find and purchase an office condo for our addiction treatment practice in Philadelphia. Lauren is an impeccable professional from start to finish. She helped us find the ideal location in The Philadelphian, a gorgeous, historic building right across from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Lauren is practical, detail oriented, responsive, and incredibly kind. She answers emails at all hours almost immediately and was available in person every single time we wished to see the space. Lauren is so easy to work with and has a way of simplifying and bringing a sense of peace to a process that can be, at times, anxiety provoking. We really felt we could trust her in negotiating and that her interests and motivation were solely to help us find the just-right location and configuration for our practice. Lauren is absolutely fantastic in every way. Thank you, Lauren, for all of your help!"

★★★★★
"Lauren Morihara took care of us every step of the way and we couldn’t be more grateful for all her hard work. With the state of the market, when we fell in love with a home, she sprung into action to help us get the very first offer in. As things evolved through the process, she was there to support, guide, and reassure us. She even helped us to move the closing and get us into our new home earlier. She exudes precision and professionalism, really understands the market and is there to lend calm guidance. Lauren is the perfect agent to have on your side!" - Sarah Maltais

★★★★★
"Lauren Morihara is a great realtor. When she worked with us she was able to very quickly figure out what we were looking for in a house, and help us find and see a number of properties meeting our needs. She did a great job of supporting us at every turn of the complicated process of buying a house. She was also very easy to get ahold of at any time and always responsive when we reached out. Not only did she know all the ins and outs of the process of home-buying but she did a great job of helping us understand the process, even though we were first time home-buyers and probably knew a lot less than most people. When it came time to purchase a place, her negotiating skills helped us get a good price, even in the super-competitive market of early 2021!"

★★★★★
"Lauren consistently exceeded my expectations for an agent. She was always friendly, easy to reach, helped at every step of the way and always went the extra mile. Not only was she very knowledgeable, she always explained all my options clearly and provided excellent advice. She was instrumental in negotiating a reasonable price for the property and actively acted in my best interest rather than her own. I highly recommend her." - Simon Danner

★★★★★
"Lauren was our buying agent for our recent south philly home purchase. We could not be happier. She was very knowledgeable and responsive. Over all a pleasure to work with." - Jasmine A.

★★★★★
"I had the pleasure of not only working with Lauren to buy my new home but in selling my old home as well. Lauren is calming, responsive, and willing to do what it takes to find the house that is the right one for YOU. She is honest and will give you feedback that helps you make the best possible decision while making such a huge investment. She also has a great team of people around her to help get the job done, and make great referrals. When selling, she really uses her great reasoning and negotiation skills to get you the best possible price, and really understands how to market your home so it is a standout among the rest. I adored working with her, and give her my highest recommendation. She provides the ultimate human element when dealing with the inevitable unknowns real estate throws your way, and I appreciated her so much through the whole process. Thank you, Lauren!"

★★★★★
"Lauren is an absolute treat to work with. She is attentive, responsive, kind, funny, intelligent, and always puts your needs and desires first. She is very knowledgeable in the Philly area and does everything so quickly. I am a first time homebuyer and she made me feel at ease and very well taken care of even with my anxieties and questions! Her advice helped me to get the condo I dreamed of having. I cannot recommend Lauren more!!! She's just the best!!" - Charlotte Gottlieb

★★★★★
""As a nervous first-time home buyer, I feel incredibly fortunate to have had Lauren to guide me through the process of buying my beautiful new condo. From the beginning, she put me at ease with her kind, friendly, unassuming, down-to-earth manner. Never slick or pushy, always knowledgeable and helpful, she consistently pointed out aspects of properties I wouldn’t have noticed, patiently explaining each step of the process and outlining what was to come next. If I was concerned about something, she was invariably already looking into it, and looking out for my interests. For instance, when I received the 36 page inspection report, I momentarily despaired of how to respond, until I checked my email and found that Lauren had already read through it and come up with a comprehensive list of points to be addressed. At all times, I felt I was working with someone I could trust, who was on top of everything, who had my back, and was dedicated to helping me make this major step in my life an extremely positive one. I could not recommend her more highly."" - drjay1966

About Lauren
Lauren considers herself a city girl, exclusively. She was born and raised in Pittsburgh where she attended the public high school for the arts, and received her BA from Temple. Philadelphia has been “home” since 2008: she got her first professional position here, got married here and started her family here. She knows what Philadelphia offers whether you are a young professional or a new family. She has always combined her passions of bicycling and exploring different pockets of Philly and learning what makes each of them special. Knowing the “what” in each neighborhood from cafes to dining to bespoke shops and schools is what you can expect from her.

Lauren has been in high end sales for the last ten years. She’s a strong negotiator, extremely decisive and efficient, but never in a rush – she knows this is your decision. Going into Real Estate was the obvious next step for her because of her innate way with sales and her appreciation of the value of homeownership. Lauren bought her first home when she was 24 years old. It was a flip in a changing South Philly neighborhood. One baby and seven years later she sold that home, made a great profit and moved to (hopefully) her forever home: a historic Queen Village house built in 1783 -- now with two babies! Lauren understands the help that first time homeowners need, and the stressors to be avoided so her clients have a positive experience. Whether it’s new construction or a historic piece of Philadelphia, Lauren uses her first-hand knowledge and the resources from the City Block Team to give her clients the very best advice and representation.
