Loren was recommended to us by our nanny's mother, who had worked in an administrative function at Coldwell Banker. Of all the agents in the office she thought we should search for a house with Loren and she was so right. Loren is not your typical high pressure aggressive real estate agent. She asks a lot of questions to understand what you are looking for in a house and neighborhood and then even tries to find you a house that is in the lower to mid range of your price point. We had already started working with two other agents on the sale side and the few times we went out with them we felt stressed and cornered into expensive homes. We stopped looking with them and made Loren our exclusive agent on the buy side. She did a ton of research into homes and sent us many listings to consider. She must have tirelessly taken us to over 20 homes during my lunch hour at work, in the evenings and on the weekends with our 2 small and ansy kids. She never lost her cool and she persevered until she found us the perfect home. In fact, she knew it was right for us before I even realized it. When it came time to bid she didn't push us up to our top range but she tried to get us honest feedback on where we stood compared to another buyer. She even went beyond her role by recommending a pool fence vendor and bringing by her son to help us understand what is needed to maintain our new pool.
Real estate is a complex, stressful and tricky industry. Loren made us feel much more at ease in this whole process. Next time we sell we will also use her as our listing agent. Hopefully that won't be for 25 years but we can at least recommend others to her sooner than that.
