"Lauren gets six stars out of five! And that’s not just hyperbole. When I found a house listed in realtor.com that I really wanted to buy in San Luis Obispo, I did a cursory search on the internet for a real estate “buyer’s agent“. After reading some articles recommending this approach for these types of purchases, I found that Lauren was the only one locally who specialized in the buyer’s unique prospective in this transaction. I called her and told her I only wanted the one house of interest, and I was not interested in just any realtor, particularly one who kept pressing me to continually buy a house of any kind, just to get a sale and a commission. It was my house or no house! She understood...and did she ever come through! She told me she prides herself on not just being a realtor, but being a guide and most of all, an advocate. She crossed every “t”, dotted every “i”, and pressed my case in a multiple offer scenario to ensure that I got what I wanted. I wound up getting the house, despite the competitive offers and some challenges with a relatively uncommon financing situation, as well as mandatory repairs, which were essential to the completion of the transaction. She is a consummate perfectionist. If she makes an error, it is most likely a small oversight, and she corrects it before anyone else even notices. She has timelines, recommendations, and tips that when followed, proved to be advantageous to me. I took her suggestions very seriously, and if she told me to jump, I said - how high? I can’t speak highly enough of Lauren as a realtor and a buyer’s agent. She helped me achieve my dream of home ownership in a competitive environment and together we managed to overcome some seriously difficult obstacles with inspections, repairs, financing, among other unique challenges. Lauren isn’t just an agent now, she is a friend!"
- Jerry, San Luis Obispo
"Lauren is incredible at what she does and was a joy to work with. If you're buying a house on the Central Coast, you couldn't find a better agent to work with. We were first-time homebuyers who fell in love with a house in North SLO County and just had to get it.
We messaged Lauren and she called right back, helped us get a last-minute offer in the next day, on the final day the seller -- who already had multiple other offers in hand -- was taking bids. She helped our offer stand out in a competitive seller's market, then held our hands and expertly guided us through the rest of the home-buying process.
She was a voice of calm and reason in a stressful process and really went above and beyond every step of the way. We knew we wanted to work with someone who was exclusively a buyer's agent, and are so glad we did. She's also a lovely and kind person. We are so fortunate to have found Lauren as our agent and will wholeheartedly recommend her to any friends who are home shopping in the area."
- MV, Central CA Coast
"Lauren is a rare gem, as a real estate broker and most importantly, as a human being of the first degree! We have utilized Lauren's deep knowledge of real estate and negotiating skills to assist us through three home sales/purchases. Being one of the most financially significant transactions of one's life, it is a joy to work with someone as competent, savvy, reliable and personable as Lauren. Her follow-through on the myriad of details involved is impeccable. What a blessing for us that she was willing to broker a deal from her home in California to assist us once again in Sedona, AZ.! Distance is not a boundary in today's connected world, but trust is. Trust is THE name of the game. And Lauren delivers, in spades."
- Diane Kuss, Arizona

"Lauren, You helped us through the ups/downs & patiently tolerated all my analysis. You are a consummate professional who will always go above & beyond. Perhaps most importantly, you are a friend...you demonstrate excellent customer service. I know because this is my job. Your care & pro-active communication set you apart from most & was/is very truly appreciated."
- Jeff and Kathy Nesler., Minnesota
"In years of buying and selling maybe two dozen properties, I can truly say that Lauren is the single best agent we've ever used. We liked a property she thought was overpriced and she spent hours researching the comps. We offered $300,000 UNDER the asking price. The owner and real estate agent laughed at us. Funny thing, two years later and that overpriced house is still on the market. And every few months the price goes down - again. She saved us from an expensive mistake. If we buy again, I would start with the best and call Lauren."
- Barry Petersen, Journalist -Tokyo, Beijing, Sedona
"We have more than 25 investment properties and Lauren is THE BEST Real Estate broker we have ever worked with."
- David and Charlotte Maggard, Arizona
"You are absolutely the BEST! Thanks for all you do for us! I don't think we could have done this - being out of state - with anyone other than you."
- Diane K., Retired Real Estate Broker
"Lauren is one of the only Realtors that I would ever recommend to my clients who are purchasing a home. She is knowledgeable and works very hard for her clients; taking time to explain the home buying process, connecting them with the right experts for their due diligence, and always having their best interest at heart over a possible commission. It is obvious she truly cares about her clients and her profession."
- Stacey Champion, Champion Indoor Environmental Services
"Thank you again for helping us find the house that fit for us. Without you, putting this all together from out of state would have been quite difficult. We have both worked with several realtors over the years. We agree hands down that you are the BEST!"
- Beth R., Colorado
"Lauren did a great job helping me find my home. She quickly understood what was important to me in a house, and she helped me sort through dozens of houses to find the ones that would work. She handled the transaction flawlessly, and was even understanding when I got cold feet and canceled the first contract on the house I eventually bought. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home."
- Richard Holt, Arizona
"Lauren is by far the best Real Estate agent I've ever worked with. Never pushy, always pleasant & available with a genuine interest in her clients. If she hadn't move from Sedona to relocate in California, I would DEFINITIVELY be using her again! A true gem!"
- Josee Woodward, Sedona, AZ
"Thanks Lauren for your hard work! You made the process seamless."
- Marlene Rayner, New Hampshire

- Jim Kautz, Texas

"Choosing Lauren to help us find just the right second home for our family turned out to be the best decision we made in purchasing property. The relationship starts with Lauren truly listening to what is important to you. Once she understands this, she works tirelessly until she reaches her goal in finding what is perfect for you. If you live in another state as we do, most of the details will happen while you are many miles away. Lauren's extensive knowledge of every step of the process, her organization, and proactive attention to every detail are invaluable. She has an extensive list of the very best contacts and resources which she puts to use so you can own and enjoy your dream. For Lauren and fortunately for us, the relationship between agent and client never ends."
- Tracey & Jimmy McGilvray, Florida
"Lauren understood me. She was kind, helpful, never pushy, and ready to go in a moments notice...She never gave up hope my wife and I would find our own home."
