LAUREN IS A DEDICATED, DRIVEN, NO-NONSENSE REALTOR WHO GETS THE JOB DONE.
Lauren helped us purchase our first home in the US. She started off our homebuying process by visting us for a couple of hours one evening to explain the entire process in detail and listen to our extensive list of wishes for our new home. She also explained how the local market was behaving. As it turned out, we were looking to buy at a moment where home prices were low (for Bay Area standards) but interest rates were about to increase. So time was of the essence! Lauren took us to see several houses so we could decide what we were looking for, and every time we asked to see something different (single family vs townhome, new build vs older, etc.) she found a suitable home and set up a viewing in a matter of hours. She helped us weigh the pros and cons of each home based on our wish lists and helped us to figure out how much work we were willing to do on our new home. We found a great home more quickly than expected and had to make an offer fast to meet the deadline. Lauren advised and coached us through the process of making an offer. And to our genuine surprise, our offer was accepted, without further negotiation, even though our’s was not the highest bid! (Top tip: Write a great cover letter!!!) At this point, Lauren was 8-9 months pregnant, and hardly missed a beat, setting up inspections so we could pass our contingencies. She also works with a wonderful loan officer. Together they were a fantastic team, making the purchase happen at record speed. It was a stressful process but Lauren remained encouraging and helped lighten the mood with her great sense of humor. Now that we have moved in, Lauren has still been very helpful in providing contacts for contractors, cleaners, plumbers, etc. Lauren is a dedicated, driven, no-nonsense realtor who gets the job done. We highly recommend her.
