“Lauren worked with my mother, sister and I to sell my mother’s condo in Needham. Not only did Lauren educate us about the market, explain the full sales process, and secure a buyer, but she went above and beyond in what was a stressful time for all of us. My mother was downsizing and moving across the country, and neither my sister nor I lived locally. Lauren went above and beyond to help in any way she could, recommending local vendors to help with the downsizing process and even offering to meet vendors if my sister or I were unable to do so. She also navigated all of the moving pieces involved with selling a condominium that we would never know to do. Lauren worked directly with the property management company to get the required documents for the sale and always kept us in the loop through each step of preparing for the sale. I would highly recommend working with Lauren; if I lived locally I would have her sell my home in the future as well!”

We are grateful to Lauren for finding our new home for us. We noticed that she had been the selling agent for a house in a neighborhood where we dreamed of living. We contacted her and asked her to keep us in mind if another house in that neighborhood came on the market. She promised to do so, and proved true to her word. Nearly a year later she emailed to say that a house there was coming on the market the next day. That next day, she brought us to the realtor’s open house, guided our bidding, and we ended up purchasing a lovely property that we’d long daydreamed about. Thank you, Lauren!

The best word to describe Lauren’s approach to her business is “proactive.” We worked with Lauren on a sale and purchase taking place on consecutive days, which can be really tricky.
She was able to anticipate issues before they became problems so that we had appropriate time to handle everything smoothly, saving us a great deal of stress during the process.
Thank you Lauren!

When it came time to market the lots in my exclusive subdivision in Needham, MA, I needed to find that special broker who understood my vision for the development and had the capability to convey it to prospective buyers. I cannot stress enough how wonderful it has been to work 5 years with Lauren Corkin and bring the sale of all lots to successful fruition! She is both extremely professional and personable, always ensuring that the needs of both the seller and the buyer are satisfied. She supported my wishes and left no stone unturned in order to reach our goal. I consider Lauren not just a fabulous real-estate broker but a true friend! With her at your side you can be confident in the knowledge you have an excellent partner in your endeavor!!

“Lauren was not only very professional and knowledgeable about the market, but also considerate of my needs and desires given the emotional and physical challenges I experienced having lived in my condo for 15+ years. Lauren was very helpful to me when I needed to dispose of some personal belongings, repair some minor “defects” in my condo so it was more presentable and taking the much needed precautions while showing my home during the pandemic. She was accommodating to the desires of both the buyer and seller and was instrumental in overseeing the entire sale process from beginning to final closing (including securing and picking up the 6D and smoke/CO2 detector certificates. Lauren knew the market very well and was a great advisor in terms of setting the asking price and negotiating the P & S Agreement and handling the numerous issues that came up during this process. If the need ever arises, I would not hesitate to use her again.”

“Thank you for doing such an awesome job selling my house. You and your team were superb. From day one, everything you did, all your suggestions, and the people you recommended were the best. I never had to worry about a thing because you dotted all your “i’s” and crossed all your “t’s”. Your clients are very fortunate to have you as their agent. I certainly will recommend you to everyone I can.”

We are so happy we chose Lauren to represent us! Covid was just starting as we put our house on the market. Despite that, she helped us quickly find buyers who were as happy to buy our wonderful house as we were to sell it. The process was surprisingly smooth under very harsh conditions, and Lauren was always there for us with encouragement and ideas. We’ve been asked, and always answer “yes” to whether or not we would recommend Lauren to others.

“Lauren was wonderful to work with. She is the consummate professional, she is so knowledgeable about the real estate industry in general, and then specifically in the areas that we were looking in. She is thorough, she is on top of every little single detail. She is very generous with her time and with advice. I cannot recommend her enough, and I would be happy to recommend her directly to anyone who is who is considering using her. She really is in a class by herself. Five star all around! Please let me know if you need a more detailed recommendation.”

We have worked with Lauren on 4 transactions including sell and purchase of our primary residence as well as purchase of rental properties. Lauren has always been outstanding to work with. She is quick to respond, very organized and detailed-oriented and always recommends the best options for lawyers, lenders and inspectors to work with. When we work with Lauren we are surrounded by very knowledgeable and experienced team to help us with the sell/purchase.

Lauren was wonderful to work with making the process of selling our home so much easier than we expected. She provided us with great advice to make our home most attractive to perspective buyers.

We were fortunate enough to have Lauren in our corner when buying our first home. Full disclosure, she is my mother – but after working with her in a professional capacity it’s clear to me why her clients love her so much. We felt at ease knowing Lauren had our best interests in mind and she would give us honest, genuine advice. We were so lucky to have her as an advocate and couldn’t have made it through this process without her sage counsel. She’s excellent at what she does and I am proud to call her both my mother and real estate agent!

Lauren was absolutely wonderful to work with! She quickly understood our wants for a home and guided us to a perfect area that met our lifestyle, home style, and price range. She urged us to ask questions we wouldn’t have considered and it was evident that she had our best interest at heart. She has a great energy about her that made the home search all the more fun. She was incredibly communicative and thorough throughout the home buying process, and she is continuing to provide personal recommendations to us even after we have closed. We can’t recommend her enough!

Lauren did an amazing job with the sale of my home. She’s very knowledgeable and commercially savvy about the market, stays on top of all the details and kept the process moving along from pre-listing to close.

I was very concerned about selling my house especially since I was selling in January. But not only did my house sell in only 5 days, but it sold for more than I was expecting. Lauren guided me through every step and took away all of the stress. All I had to do was pack up my stuff. Lauren was wonderful and I would recommend her to anybody.

Lauren Corkin did an excellent job handling the sale of the house. Her professionalism and knowledge of the Needham market was indispensable. Since I do not live in the Needham area, I relied on Lauren to handle everything. She did – from our first meeting to the closing. Laruen was key in the successful negotiations with the buyers. I also appreciate Lauren’s genuine sensitivity to my feelings – it’s bittersweet selling the “family” home you grew up in.

Lauren Corkin is an excellent real estate agent. She arranged multiple homes for us to view. She was kind and patient with us and helped us with every detail from start to finish.

We worked with Lauren Corkin in August 2017 to purchase a home in Needham and cannot say enough positive things about the experience. We relocated from out of state with little knowledge of the area and two toddlers, not an easy feat, and Lauren made our move as seamless as possible. Her vast knowledge of the local real estate market, attention to our needs and her professional network helped minimize the stress of relocation. Lauren showed us properties that matched our desires and guided us through every step of the process. We highly recommend Lauren to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

“We had the pleasure of working with Lauren as we purchased our first home in Arlington, MA. She was so incredibly helpful, informative and supportive throughout the whole process.

[expand title=”Read More…” swaptitle=” “]In our first meeting with Lauren, she was so enthusiastic and asked us many questions about what we were looking for.

Lauren consistently checked in, to make sure that we understood all aspects of the home buying process.

I would recommend Lauren to anyone and everyone I know without hesitation.”
Over the past 4 years, I have had the pleasure to work with Lauren Corkin. She initially helped me and my family find a rental home when we transferred from North Carolina to Newton, MA. From that point on, she has been way more than a realtor. She has patiently worked with me, a single mom of 2 little girls,[expand title=”Read More…” swaptitle=” “] to find an affordable home to buy in Newton, MA. At times, it felt like an impossible task but she always stayed positive and encouraged me to keep trying. I started to feel guilty that I was taking up too much of her time for something that would never happen because of the high cost of homes. She NEVER made me feel like I was a burden. Instead she became a great friend that was helping me on the most important and difficult purchase of my life. Lauren said that helping people like me find an affordable home in town was more rewarding to her and she would continue on until I was ready to stop.
After 4 years and multiple rejected offers, I called Lauren up to tell her that I was going to swing by an open house and I would let her know if I wanted to make an offer. I left the open house loving the home. I told Lauren, this is the last offer I write in Newton and I am moving on.
Lauren helped me draft a compelling and not very traditional offer. She presented it to the Sellers realtor and shortly after we found out they selected my offer.
Lauren’s patience, compassion and professionalism, are the reasons I found an affordable home for my family in this amazing town. I really appreciate how Lauren treated me like my purchase was as important as the $5M sale. It was probably the hardest commission check she ever worked for but I it meant the world to my family. She is truly amazing at her job and a wonderful person that I am grateful to call a friend.
“Stacey and I could not be any more satisfied with Lauren Corkin’s performance in connection to selling our house.

“When my husband and I were relocating to the Boston area in 2011, Lauren was our go to woman.

“It is our great pleasure to write a letter of recommendation for Lauren Corkin, who guided us in our search for our dream home in Lexington, Massachusetts. We currently own a home in Boston, Massachusetts, which we will be renting upon our relocation to Lexington.
Lauren goes above and beyond the typical real estate agent. [expand title=”Read More…” swaptitle=” “] She is extremely sensitive and in touch with her clients’ needs. From the very beginning, it was obvious that Lauren knew the right questions to ask to get to know us as a couple, our wants, needs, and hopes for a home.
Immediately Lauren began sending us listings that matched what she heard us describe as our ideal home. She would leave us messages, by phone and email, highlighting listings that she thought especially fit our searched criteria, and encouraged us to go to as many open houses as we could to get to know the market, and develop an eye for the homes in Lexington.
When we finally found our dream, we are confident that we would not have come to a deal with the owner of the home if it weren’t for Lauren’s support, advice, guidance, and overall expertise in the process. The responsiveness of Lauren is unbelievable. Especially throughout the negotiation process there were many questions to be addressed. Any question that arised was always answered and answered with lightning speed-morning, noon, or night. We couldn’t be more grateful and pleased that we had Lauren representing us in the transaction. In the end, we have everything we wanted and more, and we do believe it is in a great way due to
Lauren utilizes her endless resources to continuously provide a service for her clients that goes beyond finding properties. When one of our elderly relatives wanted to see the home we were most interested in purchasing, Lauren dropped everything with hardly any notice to ensure that she could accommodate our needs. She tracked down the listing broker, got her hands on a key, opened the house, and even made sure the right entrances were open so that our relative would not have to use any stairs. Acts like this and others show how much Lauren truly cares about her clients.
We would highly recommend Lauren Corkin as a real estate broker. She has an undeniable warmth, wealth of knowledge, and personable nature that guarantees a positive and successful experience. She will work with you until the end, until you find what you love, and until you are one hundred percent satisfied.”[/expand]
