Lauren has learned that challenging life transitions – like moving – can bring dreamt-of change if managed with positive energy and faithful integrity.

After receiving her BA, Lauren volunteered in the Peace Corps, taught for a Wash. DC nonprofit, and resettled refugees in the Silicon Valley. Desiring to serve as a literacy specialist, she put herself through graduate school by substitute teaching, and, for a while, did internal communications for Hewlett Packard.

However plans changed: she married a general contractor and started both a family and a home remodeling business in Carmel, CA. She was buying properties, drawing plans, choosing materials, managing (and doing) labor, then creatively staging homes for sale. She loved it! And that hasn’t changed.

But when Lauren became a single mom, she needed a way to work and keep homeschooling. Having always loved writing, she launched a teaching business which really took off. For 12 years she was honored as Monterey’s preeminent writing instructor.

Then, in 2018, Lauren met vibrant Jeff Graham, moved to Eugene, and bought a home – that they soon learned is a local legend. A home with a story! Inspired, Lauren became a licensed OR Realtor, melding her love of homes with her love of people and their unique journeys. Friends say it totally fits her!

Today, bringing years of hands-on real estate experience PLUS powerful communication skills that make deals happen smoothly, Lauren gracefully comes alongside clients going through life transitions of all sorts. Call to see how she can help you!
