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.

"Lauren helped me out selling my mother's condo in an area not necessarily in her wheelhouse. Her market knowledge, photographer and staging advice really helped the unit shine online. She nudged me on price adjustments when needed and kept me grounded with my expectations. It was a tough unit to sell for several reasons but Lauren kept things moving in a positive direction throughout the process. You can't go wrong with Lauren Cody & Baird & Warner - especially if you are selling in the Western Suburbs."

"While it is important to get a property under contract, which Lauren did soon after we listed with her, what was astonishingly impressive was her taking the lead getting the deal to the closing table and closed! Lauren went above and beyond by meeting and negotiating with city inspectors and directors to expedite final inspections which had they not been done timely, we may have lost our buyer. She demonstrated exemplary customer service and leadership for our entire listing period. We have already listed our next project with her and couldn’t imagine entrusting our developments with any other broker!"

"Lauren is amazing. In my situation I live out of state and my husband is disabled. So I wasn't able to be at the house when needed. Lauren took care of any issues that came up and I didn't have to worry. She goes above and beyond to handle situations as needed. It was an honor to work with her."

"Lauren was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and communicative. She was always available if I had any questions and was also very pleasant to work with. She did more work than what is normally expected from a real estate agent to make the process as easy as possible. Highly recommended."

"Lauren is very responsive and not pushy in the process. I felt that she wanted us to find the home that was the best fit for us. She also arranged for an inspection immediately and was able to be present for us, since we were not in town. Her attentiveness made the buying process very smooth."
