Lauren was phenomenal to work with. I felt like she was a partner. I felt like she was a friend helping me sell my house, rather than a professional I just hired in to do a job. She is proactive, helpful, and thoughtful. She would give us things to work on. She wouldn’t hold back or sugar coat things just because we didn’t want to hear it. As sellers, you’re very tied to your home. You have a lot of emotion invested in it. Sometimes it can be difficult to hear there are things you need to improve or change before you leave. It was really helpful to have that list of items – what we can work on now, what we need to think about, and what we don’t need to pay attention to. It helped us feel more prepared to sell our house. This was our first home. It was ours. We were the first owners. So there was some element of sadness selling it. But we also knew of the buyer and knew her story a little bit. It was nice to pass our first home down to another family. It was a mom and her son, a military family first coming to town. We wanted to help them have a good start in the city with a new home.
Lauren made the process seamless. She told us exactly what to expect and gave us very realistic timelines. She helped us with the deadlines and set reasonable expectations all throughout the process. I felt really prepared and knew, more or less, what was going to happen. It sold within two weeks. I think it was 10 days, officially. We closed within about 30 days. A lot of that is credit to Lauren. She did a really great job marketing our home. She put it in front of the right audiences. She took a lot of time to get quality photos of our house – and she gave us a list of things to fix before she even did the photos. You look at the photos and you think, “This is a nice home. I want to live here!” She was very good at communicating, checking in, seeing how we were doing, asking us if we had any questions. She was incredibly knowledgeable about her job, very smart about the market, and very strategic about her marketing and how she was going to tell our house’s story. I think it’s helpful that Lauren is really involved in the community. She knows how to target her marketing. She knows what will be key selling points in the description. She understands the buyers and the sellers. I would recommend Lauren in a heartbeat. I wish I had a Lauren in Denver. – Alyssa Parker, 2016
