Proactive. Responsive. Authentic.
While Lauren didn’t start her career in real estate originally, it’s hard NOT to see the history of her former experiences as a series of milestones on a predestined path to becoming a successful realtor. Daughter of a mortgage broker dad and real estate agent mom, Lauren was exposed early in life to the art of matching people to the houses that best suited their wants and needs. A passion for learning about homes and architecture was seeded that has continued to grow ever since.
Her journey to a career in real estate happened more organically. Lauren’s love of adventure drew her abroad after graduating from St. Edward's University in Austin with an International Relations degree. While away, Lauren saw an opportunity to build an international lifestyle brand even though it meant giving herself a crash course in business at the same time. Ten years later, Lauren sold the popular brand that continues to thrive today. Through the process of turning her dream into reality, Lauren developed the detail-orientation, follow-through, and grit that would make her successful at turning people’s dreams of homeownership into reality, too. Additionally, she mastered the art of making friends & allies of everyone she works with, regardless of which side of the negotiating table they sit on. Lauren understands that clear & timely communication is paramount in the competitive and fast-paced world of real estate. She prides herself on her responsiveness to clients who know she’s just a call or text away.
At several points along her journey, Lauren moved back to Austin to be with friends and family. Having lived in a variety of neighborhoods from the mid-90s through today, she has extensive knowledge of what each has to offer and of the Austin market in general. That first hand experience, coupled with the care and undivided attention that Lauren has built a reputation on, has helped Lauren develop a sixth sense for providing clients with exactly what they need.
These days, Lauren lives on Austin’s actual City Limits, having traded nightlife for wildlife and population density for green pastures. Along with her husband and their two boys, her time at home is spent decorating their beloved new house, enjoying time outside with friends and family, and trying to civilize their unruly but irresistible rescue, Bear. Additionally, Lauren dedicates time outside of work giving back to her community by volunteering with the Junior League of Austin, Austin Angels, and animal rescue organizations. She’s a member of Austin Board of Realtors, Texas Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.
