    I?m very pleased with Lauren?s service on my first home purchase. She is a good listener and a go-doer. In the beginning, she focused on better understanding my situation and my needs and further customized the search criteria based on the information she gathered. She knows the ins and outs of real estate and she was able to give me a comprehensive overview of the whole process. She always gets back to my questions on any of the properties I inquired. We were able to find the ideal property on the first day of showing. She is always well prepared and very detail-oriented. She is quick on preparing paperwork for submission and negotiation. She also works well with the mortgage banker and the real estate attorney, who together coordinated a rather quick closing.

    My husband and I are first-time homebuyers. Luckily, someone recommended that we call Lauren. Now that we are moved into our beautiful new condo, I can pass on the favor -- she is absolutely wonderful, and I can?t recommend her highly enough! Lauren made us feel at ease with the very intimidating process of searching for our new home. At our first meeting, she explained the entire process to us, answering questions we didn?t even know we had. Then she asked US questions. Not just about neighborhood and budget, but questions that helped her to truly understand what we were looking for. The best part is that she listened! Lauren really got to know us, and continued to tweak her searches every time we gave her feedback on a listing. Throughout the whole process she was patient and enthusiastic about finding us our home. She was always accessible and responsive, and great about returning calls. On more than one occasion, she went completely out of her way to make sure that we could schedule a showing, and she gave us very thoughtful, candid advice (positive AND negative) about every property we saw together. Not once did she suggest something to us that was even a tiny bit outside our budget. When we did find our dream place, Lauren?s experience and great instincts helped us to land it over seven (7!) other bidders. Everything about working with Lauren exceeded my expectations and, just as soon as we get the blender unpacked, she will be invited over for some housewarming margaritas.

    Lauren, I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for helping me find and purchase a home. You made the process easy and smooth for me to understand. From day one, you made it your goal to help me find what I was looking for (even though I changed my mind three to four times), you constantly emailed properties that you felt matched what I wanted at that time, always going out of your way to make sure I had all the information, setting up appointments on short notice and just providing the friendly service that is often hard to find these days. You were extremely patient, always smiling and willing to help in any way possible. You were not pushy to get the sale and always looked out for my best interest. Anytime I or anyone I talk to is in need of buying or selling a house, I'm DEFINITELY sending them to you.

    As a first time homebuyer I found Lauren to be fantastic. She was extremely responsive and hardworking, always going above and beyond to help me and accommodate my often difficult schedule. She is a great listener and was thoughtful about all of my preferences/concerns. Lauren was also very helpful during the negotiation and closing process. After a couple of months of searching to buy in a very low supply market, we ultimately found a condo that I now own and love. I?d highly recommend Lauren to anyone.

    As a first time buyer, it was my immediate instinct to turn to an online shopping site like Zillow and browse first. Lauren contacted me after I expressed interest in a property on Zillow, and I'm so glad that she did. Though that unit was already under contract, Lauren met with me and ran me through Buying A Home 101. It was the most straightforward explanation of some confusing concepts that I've ever heard. Throughout the process, Lauren was very professional, direct, and frankly, fun, to work with. I came to trust her and the team she works with, and the entire process from search to close went smoothly. I've since recommended Lauren to three separate friends, one who has already bought a new condo, two of which are on track to close, and all of whom love their new (and soon-to-be new) condos and have loved working with Lauren as well. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, Lauren is definitely the one to turn to.

    Lauren is the BEST when it comes to finding you your dream home. She was patient, insightful, and did her homework - I was always given honest advice after every showing. Being a sellers market, it was very competitive and although it was tough, Lauren never faltered. One gorgeous afternoon we looked at a unit and I knew it had to be mine... Lauren had the expertise to know exactly what to do, and beat out the competitors because of her quick thinking, professionalism, and natural instincts. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the Chicago area. Not only is Lauren spectacular at what she does, but she is so friendly and outgoing that house hunting was always a lot of fun!

    I was a first time buyer in Chicago and a friend recommended working with Lauren. I am very happy to have received that recommendation as I knew little about the process and had no contacts for the additional services, mortgage brokers, attorney etc. and Lauren was able to explain the whole process and help everything go smoothly. It took awhile to find the perfect place, and when we found it, she did all that was necessary to ensure I secured the property. Lauren was great to work with and was professional throughout. It turned into a fun smooth process and I'd happily go through it again with Lauren when the time comes. I will be recommending Lauren to all my friends and colleagues.

    I highly recommend Lauren to anyone looking to buy a home! I had never been through the process before and Lauren ran through the whole process with me when we first met to discuss properties. She was very responsive and patient when I had questions and responded to my calls and emails quickly which is golden when you're new to the whole process! Once I saw my condo, Lauren knew exactly how to proceed efficiently and took me through all the steps. If I ever meet anyone who is looking to buy, I will absolutely recommend Lauren not just because she knows the real estate market very well, but also because she is super friendly and easy to work with!

    Lauren has been great to work with. She is personable, prompt, efficient, and knowledgeable of the real estate in your area. She's a very reliable person and always responds to any questions or needs quickly. Impressively, Lauren had my condo rented within two days of listing. When I am ready to sell the condo, I will be asking for her expertise again!

    Hard working, easy to reach, personable, and knowledgeable are few words I can use to describe Lauren. She is very easy to work with and has provided guidance through my first condo buying experience. She understands what you need, whether you are fully aware of it or not. Bottom line - You won't regret it if you decide to work with Lauren, period.

    Background: I bought a condo in Streeterville as an investment and decided to sell in the summer of 2014. I previously had poor experiences with other agents in the buying process so I was particularly focused on finding an intelligent, proactive, and experienced agent that would give my listing the time/focus that was needed. I interviewed agents from multiple local real estate firms and no one seemed to be the right fit. All the agents either seemed too complacent, not familiar enough with the local market, or would not be able to put enough time/focus on my listing. ?? Connecting with Lauren: a good friend of mine had used Lauren as her buying agent (on her first condo) and had nothing but compliments about Lauren, so I decided to reach out to Lauren myself. Note - I was actually 95% about to give my listing to an agent at another firm but decided to give Lauren a shot after hearing my friend?s glowing review. I believe I met with Lauren twice before giving her the listing. In all the interview meetings, Lauren came well prepared, and I felt that I had her full attention/focus. The main reason I decided to give the listing to Lauren was because of her ?gusto,? if you will, and her ability to be really personable and upfront. These were attributes that I felt all other agents lacked and were especially important criteria for me as I needed someone with drive/passion for the job along with someone that wouldn?t give me any BS. ?? Execution: once Lauren received the listing, she continued to deliver on her promises with full vigor. As my day job is usually 10-12 hours long, I had no time to really focus on the selling process so I asked Lauren to literally take the lead on everything. She helped me contact a staging company and took care of meeting with the stager and installing the staging furniture. Afterwards, she prepared some very thoughtful and attractive marketing materials. This included very professional photos, video, and even a 360-degree panorama from various rooms. She also held multiple open houses. Throughout the entire process, Lauren kept me updated and I was able to comment wherever I was needed.?? End Result: we received a great offer within a week and I accepted after a few rounds of negotiation (with great advice from Lauren). Afterwards, she connected me with a law firm who took care of all the legal work. Lauren kept me up to date throughout the contract timeframe all the way up to closing day. As I reflect back on the selling process in writing this review, I can absolutely say this was a great selling experience for me and a majority of it is due to Lauren?s awesome performance. TL;DR - if you didn?t bother to read the review above, just take one thing away and that is Lauren has the drive, focus, integrity, and experience to sell your home!

    Lauren was our realtor in the recent sell of our condo. she was AMAZING. First off, I don't live in the city where the condo was, and she was so accommodating and helpful stepping up and helping in situations where someone needed to be present. She was always responsive, even while traveling on vacation. She's super
