As an experienced Realtor® and real estate investor I offer many services which my competition does not. I’d be happy to prove that I am the best real estate agent for your home purchasing or selling needs.
360º Virtual Tour
I will give your listing maximum exposure and help you stand out from the competition!
My exclusive 360 degree virtual tours allow buyers to walk around a property from the convenience of their computer or smart phone.
We do not live in a 2-dimensional world and looking at flat pictures does not give buyers a good feel for how a home is laid out. Buyers can use my exclusive access to LookInside.house, a website that allows you to walk around a home, to go outside, to visit every corner of a house and to better assist them with their decision-making process.
Before sitting in traffic and driving all the way to a property, buyers can explore interactive 360 degree virtual tours of homes in just minutes! In addition to helping a busy buyer rule out homes before scheduling appointments, this feature is also a great benefit for buyers looking to relocate from across the state or even across the country.
You can view 360° virtual tours of some of my latest listings at LookInside.house.
I will be available when you are available!
I am a full-time Realtor® which means you will get the attention that you deserve, responses in a timely manner and a smooth transaction from start to finish. My hours are flexible and I can accommodate even the busiest of schedules. If you work with me, you are not limited to only seeing homes in the evenings or on weekends, like you are with some part-time agents. I can speak with you or meet you anytime – morning, noon or night, weekdays or weekends!
Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE®)
I will take the stress out of a distressed property!
I am trained in assessing all foreclosure alternatives and pursuing the best solution for my client’s financial situation. There are options available to help millions of homeowners rescue themselves from the brink of foreclosure. It is crucial to act before a foreclosure takes place, so moving quickly and working with an expert in the field is critical. I closely manage the foreclosure process and help make the best of a stressful situation.
Whether you are a homeowner who is struggling with foreclosure or a buyer who needs a knowledgeable Realtor® to navigate them through the purchase of a short sale or bank owned home, having the right person on your team is key!
I will work just as hard for all my clients – buyers, sellers and investors!
My involvement in real estate as both a Realtor® and a home renovator gives me a unique advantage when working with investors. I have an excellent understanding of investors and their real estate goals and needs.
The point of investing in real estate is to make money and the key to making money is in the purchase. If you pay too much for a home, it will make the resale process more difficult for you. I will run honest, realistic comps for you from the beginning, so we know the true ARV of the property. Knowing the realistic ARV (not an inflated one) will help you make a better, more accurate offer price when you purchase the property.
Being involved in the redesign and resale of homes allows me to stay on top of popular design trends, which in turn helps me sell my clients’ homes faster and closer to asking price. When we list a newly renovated home for sale, I am happy to share tips with my clients regarding current trends, how to make your rehabs stand out from the competition and staging tips to wow buyers when they walk in the front door.
Local Area Expertise
I will be your local expert whether you are new to the area or have lived here for years!
I live in and renovate homes in the areas that I serve, so I know my market well. Being involved in the redesign and resale of homes allows me to stay on top of popular design trends, which in turn helps me sell my clients’ homes faster and closer to asking price.
I also run my local Facebook community page, Life in Newtown, a group dedicated to talking about the local events, restaurants and businesses in Newtown, Pennsylvania and surrounding towns in Bucks County.
I am licensed in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I am a member of the National, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Bucks County and Mercer County Associations of Realtors, and a member of Trend MLS, New Jersey MLS and Garden State MLS.
Network of Professionals
I will recommend professionals in the industry who have exceeded my prior clients’ expectations!
By working with me, you not only gain my expertise, but also the added value and support of a company like Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach Realtors. I truly work with a fantastic team and cannot say enough amazing things about my colleagues and my office staff.
You will get the attention that you deserve, professionalism that you expect, responses in a timely manner and a smooth transaction from start to finish.
I am also connected with an excellent network of professionals – mortgage lenders, title companies, home inspectors, home stagers, insurance brokers, etc. Just let me know what services you need and I will put you in touch with some highly reputable companies.
I am thrilled to share my amazing testimonials, so you can read what my past clients say about the service that they received.
“It’s also worth mentioning that she works with great companies that provided exceptional service. Every time we needed some type of inspection, she had someone on speed dial. The mortgage lender she set us up with was awesome.” – Brian M.
Outside the Box Thinking
I will think outside of the box to make the transaction happen!
As a real estate investor, I understand that some situations require the need for alternative methods to structure a deal just right. Some transactions are cookie cutter, but others require some creativity to put the deal together.
Whether you are selling a home and need a creative approach to attract buyers or you are searching for a home and there seems to be nothing for sale that meets your unique set of criteria – I’m here to help find a creative alternative and meet your needs.
I will ensure that your listing has professional quality pictures to help you stand out from the competition!
Did you know that 92% of people begin their home search on the Internet? That means they are viewing your home online before they ever step foot in the front door.
You need to make sure that your home makes the cut and that buyers schedule an in-person showing appointment. If you have bad photos or no photos online, you are limiting the number of people that schedule an appointment to view your home.
I promise NO pictures with fingers, reflections in mirrors, other people, pets, rear view mirrors, floors, blurry or upside-down photos.
Here are some examples of where I improved the clients’ pictures.
I will price your house correctly, so that it sells quickly!
Some agents will agree to list your house at a higher asking price, just to get the listing. Then they will constantly suggest price reductions until the home is listed where it should be.
I want you to receive top dollar, but please understand that if your house is overpriced, no one will look at it and even if they come through you will not receive an offer.
I’ll be honest with you from the beginning. Together we will discuss a pricing strategy and implement a strong marketing plan.
Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®)
I will make sure your downsizing experience is a smooth transition!
I have the necessary expertise to assist the 55+ population in the sale of their homes and their downsizing to new homes.
As an SRES® I am aware of the financial and emotional challenges senior clients face when they sell a family home that they have owned for many years. I will create a customized approach to market and sell your current house, make suggestions for improving its sale-ability and ensure that your next home meets your future and changing needs.
I will use social media to market your home for maximum exposure!
Did you know?
- People check their social media accounts 17 times per day
- People are spending 28% of their time online engaged in social networking
You need a technologically savvy Realtor® with a visible online presence to better connect with potential buyers. I am active online via my personal blog, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube, as well as, within my local community.
I will use technology to market your home for maximum exposure and to ensure a smooth transaction from start to finish!
We live in an ever-changing world and you need a technologically savvy Realtor® who stays on top of the latest trends. Today, 92% of people begin their home search on the Internet! Of those people, 47% log in only from mobile devices.
You need to be able to get your listing into the hands of your potential buyers and that means you must have technology on your side. Buyers want to view mobile friendly sites, virtual walkthroughs from their smartphones, videos with the click of a button – they want easy, user-friendly and immediate. With technology at your fingertips, there is no excuse for massive delays or slow response times.
In addition, I pride my myself on having an almost paperless office. These days, many documents can be electronically signed, or if you prefer physical signatures, they can be physically signed and stored digitally. This allows for easy access to documents from anywhere – home, office, car, vacation, you name it! No matter where I am, I can easily open your file and quickly get you the answers that you need or the papers that you request.
Real Estate Video
I will use traditional video and 360° video to help you stand out from the competition!
A study by international listing website domain.com found that video increased listing inquiries by 403%!
Your listing should be in the spotlight! Not enough agents are adding video to their listings – a pan through of the listing photos played to music does not count as video in my book. You need a Realtor® that will help you stand out from the competition and adding video to your listing is a great way to do just that!
I will make your relocation an easy transition, whether you are moving from another county or across the country!
Relocating to a new area is an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming. I am here to make sure your move is a smooth experience from start to finish.
“We were moving cross-country and had only two months to find and close on a house; and we had only three days to actually see houses. After helping us narrow down our list, Lauren showed us 24 houses in three days! She never rushed or pushed us; she just wanted us to find a house that we loved…”
– Silena P.”
I can not only introduce you to the area and help you find a town that fits your lifestyle, but I can also provide you with custom reports on school ratings, crime statistics, and other community information to ensure you are educated on the new area you are about to call home.
