What Clients Say About Lauren Grell

“Insanely thoughtful, thorough, honest and beyond helpful. Wouldn't trust anyone else with anything real estate. Between Ross and Lauren, I was always in the know, and communication exceeded my expectations. Best in town. These two are a dream team to have on your side! ”

“Mark and Lauren did a great job helping me purchase my first home. As a first-time home buyer, I had many questions. They were understanding, knowledgeable and willing to help, ultimately resulting in a great experience and smooth transaction. Would definitely recommend! ”

— Kaleb Beining

“Lauren and Ross were straightforward and genuine when helping us find our first home! They worked in our rather tight time crunch and were flexible working around both of our schedules. They answered my questions patiently and thoroughly giving great advice on home maintenance and care. Their combined experience made it super easy for us to choose the right house. Both were invaluable and I can't recommend them more!”
