Helping people find their own little slice of Berkshire heaven is truly a dream come true.
Born and raised in Macon, Georgia, I moved to the Berkshires as a teenager. To say it was culture shock is an understatement, but it was a good culture shock! I quickly came to love the area and all it has to offer.
My mom was an antique dealer and art teacher, and my parents ran Hampton Terrace, an upscale Bed & Breakfast in Lenox. I studied textile design and fashion design at University of Rhode Island and Parsons in New York.
After six years in retail management at Anthropologie in New York City, my love of antiques and furniture shifted my focus to interior design. Managing Homeward Bound, an organic/eco-friendly interior design store in Great Barrington, I honed my design and staging skills.
As a REALTOR®, I put these skills to good use, advising sellers on how to prepare and stage their homes for market, and helping buyers see the potential in those not-so-perfect properties. I have a knack for tuning in to people’s inclinations and style.
Working in restaurants for years gave me infinite patience and the ability to calm people’s nerves—this has been very useful in real estate!
I bring an upbeat, easygoing attitude, and enjoy using my knowledge and love of the area to help buyers find their perfect place. I want to make the experience of buying or selling property exciting and enjoyable.
I feel lucky that I get to explore the Berkshire hills and drive idyllic country roads with clients every day.
Lauren always managed to obtain accurate information in response to questions I posed about properties we looked at. She seemed to be well connected to many different resources regarding those issues of concern which I had. Also, I always received prompt responses from Lauren. It’s such a pleasure to work with someone so professional and personable…someone who takes their work seriously and is in service to their client. Lauren is all of that. She obviously loves her work and puts her whole self into it. Listens well and always coming from “solution!”
Lauren was so helpful and patient in helping us find the house of our dreams! She made this process so pleasant and fun and now we have the perfect home.
