We found the Lauren Davis Team nearly 2 years ago. My sister had a fabulous experience with the team and had recently closed on a home in Bethesda. When Chris and I figured out that we would be moving to the greater DC area from Baltimore, we knew the Lauren Davis Team would be the best fit. We decided to rent for a year to get to know the area. During that period, we were advised to go to open houses on weekends and explore different neighborhoods. This was important because although we knew we wanted to be in Montgomery County, we were unsure exactly where. Lauren and Meghan helped us narrow our focus and figure out where we wanted to be. We felt so lucky to have patient agents on our side. They didn’t rush us into a sale. They encouraged us take as much time as we needed to find the perfect home. The Lauren Davis Team was supportive, helpful, professional, and knowledgeable every step of the way. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The entire Lauren Davis Team was involved and supportive through each phase of the process. Whenever we wanted to see a house, they were available, sometimes even within the hour, to meet us. They went above and beyond making sure we were comfortable, safe, and protected throughout the process. They made sure we were informed and always made our happiness the priority. Aside from being true professionals and experts in their industry, they are a joy to work with. They put their clients at ease and make the home buying process fun!
We were introduced to Meghan, Lauren Davis's team member, through a mutual friend at a summer barbecue. When we ran into Meghan a few months later at an open house, we had the opportunity to talk more and felt like the Lauren Davis Team could help us through the home buying process the best. We had the luxury of not having a strong deadline to buy a house, so they encouraged us to be patient throughout the search. LDT really comes through in negotiating terms of a home purchase that make you feel confident in your decision. They were there to guide us and advocate on our behalf. The team’s support didn’t end at closing, they follow through on post-closing items to help you through the transition as homeowners. It felt like a true partnership working with the Lauren Davis Team. They are communicative, candid in guidance and lay out clear paths to consider. As a client we always felt informed of potential next steps and prepared with information, so that when we needed to be decisive quickly, we were ready. They have strong market knowledge of the Bethesda, Edgemoor, Chevy Chase neighborhoods and helped us learn more about each neighborhood so that we could decide which one was the best fit for our family. The Lauren Davis Team is extremely professional, responsive and patient when guiding you through the process.
Lauren, Meghan and the team were a dream to work with. They know the market extremely well, respond to questions and concerns 24/7, work harder than any realtor with whom we’ve ever worked, and are delightful. They reminded us to stay patient and not make rash decisions. We listed our house in November 2018. The DC area home market was behaving oddly with rapidly increasing interest rates and geopolitical turmoil. We considered delisting the house and waiting for the spring. They encouraged us to stay the course. The Lauren Davis team helped us get full asking price despite the uncertain housing market and winter listing. They did a terrific job! From our first engagement through to the very end, the team was extremely professional, communicative, transparent and hard working. They openly shared constructive feedback about the house and the process so we could quickly address issues, maximize the value of the home and shorten the selling process. They provided weekly, written updates with quantifiable metrics (e.g. number of people who visited the house and each of their feedback; number of hits on Zillow and other social media) along with suggestions to optimize the process. They communicated often and well. The Lauren Davis team is exactly the type of realtor one wants to work with – proactive, professional, available, honest, hard working, creative, and gets the job done. They really are terrific.
We have several friends who have worked with Lauren in the past and all had a fantastic experience and encouraged us to work with her. We wanted to buy a house in a specific neighborhood (Somerset) and Lauren did a good job of managing our expectations but also encouraged us to be patient for the right house. Lauren ended up finding us an off-market property. It was exactly what were dreaming of for a home and worth the wait! Lauren and her team we great and easy to work throughout the entire process of buying our house. She is also very knowledgeable about other people like lenders, contractors etc. that you need to engage in the process of buying a home. Lauren has a depth of experience and really has her pulse on the market. She genuinely cares about her clients and is a true professional who takes a lot of pride in her work. All real estate agents are not created equal!
We met Lauren through her mom, Sherry – her dog Henry spent weekend mornings playing at Norwood Park with our dog. We decided to move when we found out we were pregnant with our second child and Sherry immediately knew of some perfect options. Although we saw a bunch of listings, we ended up purchasing the first house she showed us. Lauren stepped in to finalize the negotiations for our new home and then handled selling our previous home. Lauren was extremely helpful in negotiating the offer to purchase our new home. Since we bought a new home from a builder, she knew what to look out for and what we could fairly negotiate following the inspection. We definitely saved money on things we wouldn’t have expected to ask for prior to closing. Not only did we use her for the purchase, we also wanted to use her for the sale of our home. I was surprised at how easy it was to get our house on the market and then how fast it sold. Within a few short days we were given direction about how to get the house looking “market ready,” a camera crew came by to get photos and a 3D layout ready for the listing and showings were lining up even before the first open house. The entire process was worry-free. These ladies clearly know what they are doing and their advice was spot on with each step. The process of buying and selling with Lauren and Meghan was really enjoyable and felt highly personalized. I would recommend LDT because they know the market so well and are incredibly responsive, accommodating and fun at the same time!
I have known Lauren since high school. She always has a positive high energy vibe about her that I feel is essential in luxury real estate sales. I loved working with her. The best advice I received was how to get the house ready for sale. Not only did she give me a list, but it came along with the people who could help get the list done. We followed her direction and got over asking price! Can’t beat that! Lauren really knows the market, how to get a house ready for sale and the art of how to price it. Perception is reality and Lauren is a master at creating that perception for buyers both in the way the house shows and how it is priced. Their highly focused energy combined with the ability to deal with my emotions allowed me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Selling your home is emotional and Lauren has the ability to interject just enough logic to me on task. I have recommended the LDT many times to my clients and friends. I tell them that she has the drive and market knowledge to get your house sold and you will love working with the team!
