A lot of people think it’s a sales industry. Or that agents are sales people. And while it possible that some agents may work this way, my business could not be more different. My business is all about listening and building relationships. Whether you’re buying or selling, I am here to listen to your goals, and hear your plans. Once you’ve been heard, and we’re all on the same page, that’s when we get down to the nitty gritty business of making your goals into reality.
My goal is to run a people focused business and create wins on both sides of all transactions.
I work hard to foster relationships with my clients, but also with the other agents I work in concert with. I believe that it is always possible to close a transaction in a way that leaves everyone feeling happy and well served. Buying or selling a home is a huge process, and it’s always going to bring a little stress along with it. But when we work as a team toward a shared goal and with mutual respect, it can be a positive experience that allows a home to transfer owners with good will and good vibes.
When I’m not with my clients, you’ll find me running around after my partner and two boys, knitting, traveling, camping or watching Downton Abbey for the 20th time.
I originally began with an agent from another company and decided to find someone new to work with.
That's when I met Lauren Clark. Lauren is an amazing agent and person—I highly recommend working with her! She's honest, efficient, flexible, and very knowledgeable. She often let me know if a property could become out of my price range and showed me things I wouldn't have selected myself—but she knew I would like. She used a variety of resources to help me locate homes I might be interested in. She sent me links regularly for places I might like. I actually felt like she was behind the scenes working for me, with me. Always accessible, charming, and kind—kind with strength. She never got impatient with me and she was easy to laugh with. Choose Lauren because she made the experience easy and as stress free as possible.
When my husband and I decided to start the search for our first home, we reached out to Lauren immediately, having heard good things about Living Room Realty and knowing Lauren from attending high school together. From the start, we were impressed with Lauren's professionalism, responsiveness, and knowledge; while her warm personality and sense of humor made house-hunting fun. Lauren was wonderful at honoring our preferences while introducing other options we hadn't considered. Ultimately, her negotiating skills and gentle guidance landed these first-time homebuyers a home we love, comfortably within our budget. Lauren is a true real estate pro and we recommend her highly!

Working with Lauren was a wonderful experience. She helped me buy my first home and the quality of her work made me feel and know that I was in great hands. She shared knowledge and insight in a straightforward and easy to understand manner that helped me make informed decisions. In addition, she brilliantly negotiated for me and I ended up with exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend her for buying or selling a home!
My husband and I loved working with Lauren Clark. She is professional, knowledgeable and worked very hard to meet our needs. Lauren has a great eye for potential and sent us lots of listings that I might not have picked out, but were really interesting. She helped us come up with a list of wants vs needs to narrow our focus till we found the perfect house. Throughout the entire process she was readily available, and intercepted all problems so we had as worry free of a closing process as possible. In no time at all we were moving into our new home, and have loved every day there since! Lauren comes highly recommended by us!
