I would highly recommend Lauren to anyone seeking to purchase a home in the shoreline area of Connecticut.”

“Lauren provided my wife and I with an exceptional first-time home-buying experience. As people who appreciate the fine details, Lauren was always there to explain everything to us and make us feel extremely comfortable. Throughout the entire process, she took the time to answer all of our questions honestly, and even contacted the seller to get answers for specific questions. She has been and continues to be extremely responsive, answering inquiries via email or text message within minutes. We can tell that Lauren truly cares about her clients, has their best interest at heart, and takes the time to ensure that they end up having an exceptional experience. We will always remember our first home, and we will always remember the work that Lauren put in to make us feel amazing.”

“Lauren helped us through each step of purchasing our first home, from looking at homes to get a feel for the market to putting in an offer on the most adorable little farmhouse! She was available literally night and day to answer all of our questions, show us homes, and put in offers. Our new home was definitely meant to be, but without Lauren’s willingness to work night and day it would not have happened!!! Lucky to have had Lauren recommended to us, and highly recommend her if you’re looking for a realtor!”
