Life is short. Move.
Those who know me know that I can't sit still. Why wait till tomorrow if you can do something today? I think you should laugh, go outside, and travel. Take care of yourself and your loved ones and have fun doing it.
Why do I do what I do?
The answer is simple and a little cheesy. Have you read the book about 5 love languages? It's a no-brainer that my love language is "acts of service" and when I read that book something "clicked" for me. I absolutely take joy in helping others and I am fortunate that my job allows me to do just that!
I bring over 15 years of real estate industry experience to and I'm prepared to be one of your most knowledgeable real estate resources. I understand that you have questions, reservations and even fears. You need a real estate professional who will guide you through the intricacies of your transaction, negotiate on your behalf, reduce your liability and successfully navigate you through the close of escrow. In the past, I have worked behind the scenes in land development, property management and commercial real estate. Successfully providing support in these roles has enabled me to build a portfolio of skills in sales and marketing, customer service, and technology that is hard to match. As a realtor, I am committed to giving you the highest quality service, addressing your specific needs and thoroughly communicating with you during and after your real estate transaction.
Who am I?
I grew up in the East Bay in Pinole and Hercules playing softball, dancing and spending lots of time with my very large family. After high school I attended college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and then moved further south to San Diego. I do miss the beach but I am happy to be back in the Bay Area raising my twin babies and toddler with my husband. I love that the Bay Area is super diverse, and that it offers so much for our girls to experience. I love the family that we have built together and we are fortunate to have a network of amazing friends who are amazing “aunties and uncles”. And one of the coolest things about having kids has been watching their grandparents spend time with them, it is so sweet!
Fun Fact: I tie my shoelaces with bunny ears, like a preschooler...
Favorite Wine: Pinot Grigio
Hobbies: Working out, walking my chocolate lab Charlie, teaching exercise classes at the gym! I just love to move (not talking about how I lived in 5 different places in my 6 years in San Diego).

Wish I Had More Time To: Travel! I have been on some amazing trips to Peru, Belize, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica and South Africa, but there are so many places to see!

“Lauren has been wonderful to work with. She is very well organized and was always ready to answer our questions, no matter if that meant working very late or spending hours explaining every step involved in the purchase - especially helpful for first time buyers like us. She is also naturally very pleasant to work with, which was extremely appreciated by all the people involved in the purchase, including the lender, the buyers and the buyers' - her kind and delightful manners definitely worked to our advantage when we put our offer in! We would not hesitate for a second to work with her again and highly recommend her services.”
“Lauren went above and beyond to help us buy our home in a super competitive Bay Area market. Lauren is absolutely amazing. She is very knowledgeable and she was super responsive to all of our questions. She was able to find the perfect home for us before it even went on the market. That gave us the edge we needed to be able to offer and buy the before other buyers got the chance. Even before our offer was accepted, Lauren worked with our lender’s timeline to schedule the necessary inspections. After our offer was accepted, Lauren walked us through the entire escrow process. She truly made the entire process so seamless. We wholeheartedly recommend Lauren to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Lauren, we cannot thank you enough!”

“Lauren was very professional. We found her to be proactive in addressing potential challenges and excellent in educating and communicating with us. We were out of the area during much of the transaction and she kept us updated and accommodated our distance apart with electronic document and signature capabilities. She also coordinated all of the inspections and vendors in our absence.”
