Living in Santa Monica's Ocean Park neighborhood is really the best of all worlds. Ocean Park combines bits of everything I love-- great food; beautiful beaches; interesting, creative people; exceptional schools and spectacular real estate. There is an overwhelming sense of community in Santa Monica. I get so much from it-and I give back, particularly through my involvement in our public schools.

Originally from New York City, I've called Los Angeles my home for over 15 years. But I did plenty of research before setting down roots in Santa Monica. After graduating from Brown University, I traveled the country, living in northern California, Colorado, Maine and back in New York City before I decided Los Angeles would be my home. During those years I worked as a white-water river rafting guide, a crew coach and a professional photographer.

But I grew up in a real estate family and, to no one's surprise I was easily and happily lured in. The passion for real estate I had witnessed in my relatives working in both residential and commercial real estate sales and development was hard to resist. Although I am also an attorney (and practiced Family Law, Special Education Law and Contract Law for several years), it was only a matter of time before I left the legal profession to join my family as a real estate broker.

My legal background and training as a certified mediator are obvious assets in the real estate business. Because of my family law background, I am particularly helpful when the family home is being sold as the result of a divorce. I understand the financial implications of the sale of a home during (or after) a divorce, but I also fully appreciate the emotional impact a divorce can have on a family, and I am able and willing to help when conflicts come up.

My expertise as a photographer is proving to be just as helpful as my legal training. I have an eye for things that are intrinsically -- if not obviously--beautiful and I come equipped with an arsenal of ideas for how to redesign and renovate any space.

When I'm not working or volunteering I am often walking along the beach or the bike path with my son, Max, and his service dog, Apollo. And if you don't see me out walking I may be at Peet's having coffee with some of my neighbors. read less «

Lauren was recommended to me by a friend, and I have been completely satisfied with her throughout my home buying experience. She was always available for showings and was energetic and knowledgeable. She went way beyond most real estate agents, especially dealing with the builder, organizing the punch lists, and explaining all of the documents. I would highly recommend Lauren, especially for people looking to purchase in the Santa Monica area.

Lauren has all the qualities you want in a Real Estate Agent. She's personal, professional and proactive. She's also a thoughtful and knowledgeable communicator. During the sale of my home, we had difficulties with tenants in the guest house on the property. She handled the situation with tact and grace while successfully navigating us through some pretty treacherous waters. She stayed on top of the many details that needed to be tended to and kept everyone in the loop. I can't thank her enough.
- Hank Fischer
Of the many real estate agents we've worked with selling 8 principle residences in different cities, Lauren is simply the best. Her advice on pricing strategy, presentation strategy, negotiation, and buyer evaluation is well-reasoned while applying strong, current market knowledge. Her concise communication and attention to detail allows her to help clients evaluate an array of information to navigate the process first listing to close of escrow. I recommend Lauren to everyone.
- Randy and Paige Jackson
When making the single biggest purchase in your entire life it's imperative you only work with the very best. I DID. I was a first time home buyer and my transaction was not an easy one. I'm especially grateful I had the advantage of working with Lauren. If looking for a home, you'll thank me for the referral.
- E.G. and W.A., Client
Lauren was not only easy to work with but also a consummate professional. She did a fantastic job representing me in the sale of my Santa Monica beach condo in April of 2014. Lauren was hands-on throughout the entire process. Her knowledge of real estate is formidable, and her legal training was instrumental during negotiations. Overall the experience exceeded my expectations.

Lauren helped us buy our home in Venice-and throughout the entire long process she was dedicated, proactive, insightful, and dogged. She is a great communicator, and our buying situation was complicated-one of us out of the state- but she always made sure we were all informed at each step of the process. I appreciated her candor, her insights about the properties, her understanding of our family's needs and hopes, and her knowledge of the housing market in the areas we were looking.

Lauren made a nearly impossible search possible. She was referred to us by a friend, and I’m so grateful to have followed that friend’s advice. We live in Montana and wanted to find a home in the Santa Monica/Venice area. Homes were changing hands quickly and we were unable to plan trips there quickly enough to view each property as it came on the market. We relied heavily on Lauren’s knowledge of the area with her personal and professional care and guidance.
