Highly likely to recommend

“Inherent to Lauren's role is constantly dealing with ultra-high net worth clientele, which given the value of the assets we are entrusted with selling, requires the highest levels of professionalism and composure in often high-pressure sales negotiations. Given the caliber of our clients, they demand nothing short of the best, which Lauren is able to deliver. Lauren always exhibited awareness, control, expertise, and was quick to understand and act on any given situation.”
