A friend of ours recommended Lauren. We asked our friend to give Lauren our phone number. We can describe what we were looking for and the amount of our down payment.. Lauren sent us several properties to review. When we decided to increase the amount of the down-payment, she redid our criteria.. Living up in Northern CA. we needed to make arrangements. Lauren, set up several properties for us to review. She picked 9 properties for us to review, while I was down in San Diego. It was quite an experience, but well worth it as we found the property we bought. Lauren worked withr Realtor/Seller to help us to come terms. The sale went off seamlessly with no problems.
