“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' agent - 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.”
