Lauren Holloway has been an involved member of the local community since 1995 when she and her husband were proud new parents of their first born and began thinking about schools. Lauren describes the area, saying, “It’s such a family-friendly place to live and a great place to be a kid.”
Lauren entered the real estate profession after enjoying a career in the business world, managing an IT group at an elite software company. With a high-tech background, she embraces technology in the real estate business, enabling her to be more effective with tools and marketing. She also utilizes the project management and negotiating skills that were honed in her business career.
She loves working with her clients and making sure they are given first class attention, dedicated service and the best deal whether she represents buyers or sellers. Lauren’s clients appreciate the vitality and compassion that she puts into her work, saying: “Lauren is the consummate professional . . . . She is extremely knowledgeable about housing market trends, finance, local businesses, activities, and schools. . . . She made the often stressful business of selling my home very manageable and pleasant. Lauren is such a delight to work with. Simply the best.”
When asked if she prefers to work with buyers or sellers, Lauren said, “I enjoy both. With sellers, I specialize in helping them prepare the home to maximize their return, selecting low-cost projects that will make a big impact. With buyers, when you can take part in finding a new home for someone, that is incredibly special.”
Lauren has in-depth knowledge of the neighborhoods in Contra Costa County and is able to provide clients with an invaluable perspective on the local market. As a very involved parent, she also has helpful information about the local schools.
Lauren’s client-satisfaction success has made her a top producer in Sotheby’s Danville office. When she’s not showing property, holding an open house, overseeing an inspection or appraisal, she loves to be on the tennis court: she’s an avid player and fan.
