We hired Lauren to help us sell our Arlington home under a very tight time frame and she handled the entire process like a pro. She knew exactly when and how to accomplish all that needed to be done before placing our home on the market and she handled every aspect of the sale process with ease and with a calm demeanor. I highly recommend Lauren to anyone. She did a great job for us.
Lauren went ABOVE AND BEYOND to help us with the sale of our house!
We undertook a few home home upgrades before listing and Lauren took on the oversight of all these activities at the house. She was very hands on and paid attention to every detail. Her recommendations made the house show so much better than it would have before the upgrades! She is an expert in this neighborhood and made the process painless for us. We were extremely happy with the sale price of our house which was above asking price and include several other perks we never expected. We strongly recommend Lauren!
Working with Lauren was such a positive experience when we sold our home that we were thrilled to work with her when purchasing our new home. She provided sound advice and exercised extreme patience as we stalked the market out of peak season for the perfect home. I knew buying in a competitive market with strict parameters and a narrow price range was going to be tricky but Lauren steered us clear of potential problems and ultimately helped us negotiate the purchase of our dream home.
My husband and I were referred to Lauren by a close family friend. We could not be more grateful to our friend for introducing us. From the moment we began talking to Lauren about our needs (which was interesting in and of itself because I was finishing up a degree in RI while my husband was in the DC area looking for our first home) she was warm, unbelievably accommodating and so, so knowledgable. She answered all of our questions easily and professionally and advised us throughout the entire process. She really listened to us - our needs, our desires - and we ended up finding the most perfect home. Not only did she devote endless hours to me on the phone and on email since I could not be here to help in person, while meeting my husband almost every weekend to go see dozens of homes, we all truly became friends throughout the process. When we closed on the house she was there with the most unbelievable, thoughtful bag of gifts for us. We were shocked by her generosity and even more so by the fact it came from such a genuine place. Lauren could not be happier that we have found our dream home. She is still in our lives and continues to answer questions when they arise (about anything real estate, really) and she knows EVERYONE you would need to know from great appraisers to lenders to plumbers. She is truly a gem in this industry and we will never work with another realtor as long as she is around. We trust her 100% and I cannot recommend her more highly for anyone with real estate needs!
Lauren showed us several beautiful homes and went above and beyond for us. We found our beautiful home and she helped us through the home buying process during a hectic time in our lives and made it easy and painless.
My now husband and I found Lauren the way most good realtors are found - through a recommendation of a coworker. She met us right away to understand what we were looking for, and patiently helped us as we actually figured that. Through looking online my husband and I thought we had found several amazing houses, but after visiting in-person...not so much. However Lauren patiently took us to each one we asked to go to and listened to what we did and didn't like. We finally took her advice and let her provide recommendations and set up a listing visit based on what she thought we would like. On that visit we liked all the houses but loved one in particular that we now own. This was our first home buying process and Lauren was helpful in everything, giving recommendations on a lender and with her insight as to what was a good offer she ended up saving us $$ from the asking. Since we've closed she's kept in touch to make sure we're still happy and is one of our trusted sources for home maintenance contractors as needed. We've also continued recommending her to other friends and coworkers. We highly recommend Lauren!
Lauren is the best realtor!! She helped us both sell our house (in a community with very similar houses where 5 other houses were on the market at the same time as ours) and buy our dream forever home. She was so responsive and very mindful of the fact that we had young twins (she's also a twin mom). She also dealt with a very difficult builder. She's great and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone in Northern Virginia!!
Lauren listened to our list of wants and got to know us, then found homes that we didn't even realize we would like as much as we did. We wouldn't have found the house we bought without her. Lauren provided the highest level of service and was always a pleasure to work with.
Lauren was fantastic when she helped us sell our house in N. Arlington. She did a great job in the entire process - positioning our house, hosting an open house, negotiating the contract and guiding us through the closing process. We HIGHLY recommend her!
Lauren was a big help when I bought my first place back in 2013. Since then, Lauren has continued to help me with various aspects of real estate, including among other things providing me with recommendations for interior designers. Lauren even paid for initial designer consultations to help me through this process. Really appreciated!
Lauren Reardon is a fantastic realtor. She knows the business, the neighborhoods, and the available homes at any given minute. Most of all, her customer service is extraordinary. She is very patient and respects her clients' financial, practical, and emotional requirements. That means taking all the time needed to find just the perfect house--or finding a serious buyer lickety-split. Almost like a counselor, she will accompany you in the process from start to finish and you will never regret having chosen her.
My own story is telling. One weekend last year Lauren went with my ailing father, two kids, and me to look at about ten houses. By mid-afternoon we decided that we were just too tired and would skip the rest of the houses. Lauren completely understood, but she encouraged (pressed!) me to see just one more house. It had come on the market that morning and she thought it was exactly what I was looking for. So we dragged ourselves over to give it a quick look.
I was in love as soon as I saw it. It was so beautiful, so delightful, with a cobalt blue door that matched the flowers sprouting up all over the yard. I had a sense of disbelief, like this house was the popular kid in high school and it was about to ask me to the prom. It was just too good to be true. Except that it wasn't!
Lauren deftly wrote up our offer and kept us informed the whole way. She showed up one day at my door with a bouquet of balloons and a bottle of champagne: the sellers had accepted our offer. In no time we were able to move into the fairy tale. It has been a romance with this house ever since.
I am so impressed that Lauren not only knew exactly what would be perfect for my family, but also gently but effectively got me over to see the house in time to be one of the first bidders. I will always be grateful to her for leading me smartly and kindly through this process.
Lauren has represented me in multiple transactions over the years, both buy-side and sell-side, and I could not be more satisfied with the quality of her representation. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and will work tirelessly to make the process as easy and low-stress for you as possible. Not only is she highly knowledgeable about the local real estate market, but she also provides invaluable insight on schools, neighborhoods, etc. that you cannot find online. I highly recommend Lauren to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Lauren made us feel like we were her only client. She did accurate comps, held several open houses and when the best buyer emerged, sold our house promptly. We we're so pleased with Lauren that we used her again a few weeks later to help us find and acquire our next home.
Couldn't be more pleased.
Lauren Reardon has been an absolute pleasure to work with. We have worked with her for three seperate transactions. Everything has been absolutely seamless. She has great attention to detail, and is always available when needed. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home- she is a very hard worker and does her best to make the process low stress. She always has her clients' best interest at heart.
In 2014 I sold my home of 17 years and purchased another home. Lauren Reardon was my agent for both transactions. Lauren was great to work with. My house sold quickly and Lauren had us see the new house before it even came on the market. We were very impressed by her professionalism. I highly recommend Lauren Reardon.
Lauren was very helpful, and also fun to work with! She knew the area really well, and was also able to recommend local contractors, repair services, etc. We're very happy with the house we ended up with, and will definitely use her again in the future.
We used Lauren for our new home purchase and selling our old house (both in Arlington) and would definitely recommend her. Extremely knowledgeable about Arlington neighborhoods. Great network of contacts who help to make the whole process go smoothly. Sold our old house for the highest price any house has gone for in that neighborhood in less than a week during the off-season (pretty impressive). She was super patient even though we took a few months to find our perfect house and picked up on our personal preferences and "must-haves" very fast so she was able to find great options for us right off the bat. Very responsive to all of our questions and needs and handled any issues that came up during the process quickly and appropriately.
Lauren was very helpful and attentive. She gave us great advise throughout the process. We are very satisfy as first time buyers. We would recommend her to friends and family!
Debi and Kevin Kern highly recommend Lauren as a realtor for her expertise and high integrity. Specifically, Lauren helped us relocate from Atlanta in April 2013. Lauren provided practical recommendations for short term rentals and a systematic approach to evaluate options to match our living style. We were looking for a unique home with land and character. Furthermore we love our antiques and needed a home to showcase them appropriately.
Lauren worked diligently to provide options and was very receptive to feedback. In less than a month we found our perfect home built in 1930's with significant additions of stone work, fabulous woodwork and almost an acre of land.
We highly recommend Lauren as a knowledgable, high energy focused realtor as you search for your unique home.
We enthusiastically recommend Lauren Reardon as a realtor.
Lauren worked as our agent in a complex multi-offer situation and helped us to write several addenda that I believe won us the contract even though we did not offer the highest price.
My family looked in a very specific part of McLean, and Lauren provided valuable insight into the various neighborhoods we considered.
Lauren promptly responded to all questions and was proactive in her own communication. She made sure that we understood the home buying process very well. Based on her personal and professional qualities, we chose to use Lauren to sell our home the following month.
Two months later, I feel that Lauren put us in the perfect house and we couldn't be happier!
Short Version: Lauren is a wonderful person and an extremely valuable resource for anyone looking to purchase property. Highly Recommended.
I was initially thinking about going through the whole process on my own (I had never purchased a home) - I mean how hard can buying a home be?
Well, I'm very thankful that I didn't go the solo route and that a friend referred me to Lauren because it seems to be a time consuming and, at times, frusterating process. Getting appointments setup, knowing who to call/talk to, making sure all the i's are dotted and t's crossed (how many pieces of paper do I have to sign!). There were a number of things that she noticed when touring properties or reviewing contracts that I missed or had no clue about.
Lauren is an invaluable resource who smooths out the home buying process (especially for first time buyers I would imagine). She seemed to be always available for a quick question or clarification. Basically, I was able to maintain my sanity through the process because she handled the various particulars associated with buying a home (setting up inspections, contracts, etc...). Now I have an amazing home.
Thank you Lauren!
You simply won't find a more professional, thorough, and simply amazing realtor in the DC Metro area. We were referred to Lauren by a friend and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. It was clear from the beginning that Lauren wanted to make sure we felt as if we were her first (and we knew we weren't her only client) priority. We, like so many other families, were becoming frustrated with the DC real estate market. If it weren't for Lauren and her great attitude and caring demeanor, we would have quit. She actually made looking for a home fun (for those who have done it, you know how hard that is). We truly felt like she was looking out for our best interest the entire time, not her own. I can't highly recommend Lauren enough.
We were in a bind and Lauren found us a wonderful short-term rental in 1 Day!! Her quick response time and hard work was greatly appreciated. Lauren is both a consummate professional and incredible person - you'll love working with her.
