Maybe it was the backseat full of RMLS listings, jumping, dancing, threatening escape; the way she said “I’ll write it up!”; the notion that anything could be fixed with an Addendum; the slew of colorful folders, scattered like life itself…full of details, stories, dreams. When Lauren realized, I have one BADASS Realtor Mother.
At times entertaining and often educational, for Lauren, a career in real estate was not always in the cards. Clocking 5 years in NYC, followed by another 5 years back in her hometown of Portland Or, Lauren was focused on work in catalogue photography, design, retail marketing, account management, marketing for ice cream, and always a loyal and at-the-ready real estate assistant to her mother. It was no surprise when Lauren realized all of her experience, combined with a love of houses, commitment to long lasting relationships and making things happen, brought her back to her roots in real estate.
Lauren is an all-star advocate, a learner, a planner, a listener, a proponent of open and honest communication who will meet you on board, wherever you are. With every new client, she looks forward to continuing the story of how a mother and then a daughter, can take 4 wheels, a full tank of gas, a big heart, and an intricate knowledge of Portland’s back-streets, and really make things happen.
What Lauren’s clients are saying:
“We immediately had a great relationship with Lauren. She completely understood the kind of home we were looking for. She provided insightful perspective on any listings we found ourselves, and ultimately pointed us to the house we purchased. When we encountered difficulties with our seller, Lauren offered pragmatic recommendations while giving us the details to make informed decisions on our own. She did a fantastic job of communicating with all of the involved parties (listing agent, lender, title company, the city etc.) and keeping things on track so we didn’t have to, right down to closing day. Buying a home can be a stressful process at times, and we can’t imagine having done it without Lauren’s help!”
-Alex & Liz
“Lauren did a phenomenal job helping us prepare our family home for sale. Her professionalism and attention to detail made the process almost seamless. Her marketing expertise was integral to the process and the property sold in just over 2 weeks! She was always available with resources and ideas that made it possible for us to plan the move to our new place at the same time the sale was occurring. As with any sale there are many details requiring close attention and Lauren was always a step ahead of those. Not only did she advocate for our interests, she went far beyond the call of duty on several occasions to prevent any potential obstacles. We enthusiastically recommend Lauren to any potential sellers and buyers as someone with great integrity, knowledge, energy and professionalism. She works hard for her clients in order to achieve the desired outcome.”

“Initially, we had no desire to work with a realtor. The reason being, we thought we could do everything ourselves so why would we want to pay someone to do the work we could accomplish on our own. That was a naive assumption, and I am immensely glad that we found Lauren. Everyday, Lauren went above and beyond helping us through all of the steps of purchasing a home. I cannot stress enough how much I would recommend working with Lauren. She will help remove the unknown and a lot of the stress out of your purchase. When any of my friends ask who they should work with when they are looking to buy a home, I know exactly who I’ll refer them to: Lauren Hurley.”
