The combination of being a third generation Riverside resident and a decade of real estate sales experience has helped me to obtain a great deal of expertise and success in representing buyers and sellers in the Western Suburbs. 

Formerly employed in the field of interior design, I possess the creative edge necessary to help sellers prepare their homes for the market. I guide sellers every step of the way, from the first open house to the closing table.

I have a proven record based on four key objectives that help guide me and my clients in selling their homes in the shortest amount of time for the highest possible price:

  1. Condition of the Property –  As a Certified Staging Consultant, I guide sellers in the preparation of their home to “SHOW” in the best way possible.
  2. Price – Get it right from the start! I do a thorough Comparative Market Analysis to help sellers determine the most competitive price based on accurate statistics from the Multiple Listing Service.
  3. Exposure – Marketing, marketing, marketing! Using the superior marketing platform provided by Baird and Warner, listings receive maximum exposure to potential buyers.
  4. Negotiation – I have closed numerous transactions for both buyers and sellers using expert negotiation skills, patience, and perseverance.

For buyers, I make it my business to actively search for the best properties that meet their wants and needs. I am a good listener and ask the right questions in an attempt to pinpoint buyers’ priorities, making the home search more productive and successful.  Moreover, Baird and Warner offers one of the best websites in the industry, and buyers can register to receive up to the minute listings via email or search for properties using its innovative mobile app.  I guide buyers through every aspect of their home purchase: touring properties, negotiating the sales contract, and providing referrals for inspectors, lenders, and attorneys.  From the first home tour to the day the moving van arrives, I am the buyer’s advocate every step of the way!

A wife and mother of three, I reside in Riverside, and am active in community organizations and events. A former educator, I hold Bachelor and Master Degrees in Education and continue to take courses in the field of real estate.

"It was such a pleasure to work with Lauren. Hired two previous realtors with no results and wish I would have chosen Lauren sooner. She was very professional and made the process go very smoothly. I would highly recommend her!"

"She sold my house in 32 days and helped me through my fears of never getting it sold. She was always reassuring. She lives in Riverside and therefore understands it and what makes it a special place to live. You can’t go wrong with Lauren."

"Lauren was absolutely fantastic to work with on the purchase of our first home.

From her knowledge of the area & market, to negotiations, to knowledgeable industry contacts, and through the entire loan & closing process; her expertise was unparalleled.

There was never a moment that we doubted Lauren's commitment and attentiveness which made a potentially stressful situation seamless.

Highly recommend!"

"We were truly blessed to have been referred to Lauren by a friend. It turned out to be awesome. Lauren was very congenial, knowledgeable and helpful at all points along the way. Any and all issues were managed professionally and promptly. BTW...we sold in 3 days for 6K over asking price. That made it that much better."

"Lauren’s elegant and intrepid. She knows so much, we benefited from her paring the info flow to what was essential and actionable. Most appreciated. Her knowledge is comprehensive. Her word is good. I cannot imagine a better person to help you along your journey."
