I have dealt with 4 realtors within the last 5 years to buy and sell different properties in NJ and NC, and I have to say that Lauren is by far the best. She is efficient, easy to communicate with, stays in touch, kept me updated every step of the way, and all in all provided a pleasant, hassle free experience from start to finish. She sold my property within a month of me listing it, for above asking price. I highly recommend her, and will be using her again in the near future.
I’ve bought six houses over the years with six different realtors. Lauren is by far the best one I have ever worked with in the home buying process. I find her to be more honest and hard working than any other realtor I’ve come across. Highly recommend her.
When selling my home, I was determined to actually not use any Realtors that I knew personally. Lauren and I had mutual friends and I decided on a whim to give her a call. I am so glad that I did. She was motivated from the start. I even called her that morning about listing my house and she was there that afternoon. She was extremely professional and just a hard worker. I know every Real estate transaction has its challenges, but she made me feel confident that there were nothing that she couldn't handle. I even used her as my Realtor to purchase a new house and she was just as incredible. I can't say enough great things about Lauren and I highly recommend her. I can say that I honestly have a Realtor for life but also a new great friend.
I bought a house in Wilmington from NY without visiting the house in person. When I called Lauren, she went to any and all of the houses I asked her to look at and showed me over the phone the whole layout of the house. She did this the next day after my call. Also, she didn't only point out good points of houses, but made sure to show me any marks on flooring or any other locations that might need repair at all the houses. When she found me a house I chose to buy, she negotiated a fantastic deal for me and arranged everything, from the inspection to closing. When I went down for closing, she gave me a gift certificate for a local restaurant that was delicious and trendy, and knew of all the locations to frequent in my neighborhood and all of Wilmington. She knows her city, and is very helpful. She has gone above and beyond, and has been checking up on the house until I can move down there, and has been in contact with me even after closing, asking if there is anything else she can help me with. Even more so, her energy and positive attitude make her a joy and pleasure to buy a house from. I spent 6 months, and gained 40lbs looking for a house in NY and came up with nothing, and in one call to Lauren, I found a house in a week and owned it in a month. And no weight gain!!! Awesome, and highly recommend to any buyer or seller.
Lauren is a catch! As a first time solo homebuyer, I had so many questions and concerns, and she patiently and professionally walked me through all the answers (over and over because I needed to ask some questions more than once, it seems). She helped me negotiate my way through numerous twists and turns, guiding me along each step of the process until closing. Lauren is intuitive and insightful and a whole lot of fun. Her smile and laugh are infectious and even when things got a little stressful she just breezed through each issue with confidence and an "I got this" attitude. I wouldn't consider anyone else, period. In fact, even after the closing, she has been a wealth of knowledge and contacts and information for me, being new to the area. I couldn't recommend her more.
Lauren helped me find the condo of my dreams in downtown Wilmington when I was moving here for a job. She was able to draw me a distinct area in downtown that she recommend I stay within, etc. Unfortunately, that purchase didn't go through. However, she went above and beyond to help me find a place to rent last minute and visited them for me since I was out of state at the time. My experience with Lauren was so positive that I later reached out to her when I wanted to purchase a vacation home in Carolina Beach and my husband and I plan on using her when we list our current home this spring and look for a larger house.
Lauren was everything we dreamed of and more! We never know house buying could be this easy and she was there to guide us every step us the way! She definitely cared about us, and did not just see us as a commission check. Will always be using her in the future!
I couldn't be more pleased with the home buying experience that Lauren provided. It's taken a while for me to post this review because we've been so busy around our awesome new home! During the house hunting, she was extremely helpful and was able to find tons of homes to look at. During closing, she took care of so many things, handling much of the coordination with inspections and working with my bank to ensure closing day went smooth. Can't recommend Lauren enough! Thank you for helping us through what can usually be an extremely stressful event!
Lauren made buying my first home much easier. She coordinated with my financial advisers while I was busy at work, drove me to dozens of properties, and gave me honest insight to the pros and cons list I made for each house.
We were just looking around at houses for the future and just happened to run into her while looking. She helps us through the whole process of finding and eventually purchasing our house. Very motivated, friendly and professional. We would def recommend her to anyone currently looking to but a home.
Lauren was so helpful in every aspect of our home buying experience. She was attentive and kept her cool when plans suddenly changed, and worked extremely hard to make sure we were taken care of. She is wonderful, and I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
We met Lauren by chance buying our first home. She was a go getter right from the start. Energetic and willing to go the extra mile. It was not a easy sale as it was a estate sale with 9 people needing to sign off. She helped push it forward and keep us positive. I thank her for all that she did for us. 5 star rating from us
lauren was nothing short of spectacular. We were buying a home in Wilmington while still living in Massachusetts and Lauren made the whole process easy and smooth from the beginning thru the closing and even beyond. She helped us negotiate with the seller, arrange for inspections, saw to it that promised changes were made, went through the final walk through, and accompanied my son to the closing...
We were thrilled to have her in our corner....Read Full Review
Lauren was very responsive and always pleasant when we contacted her regardless of the time. She assisted with showings and was cool, calm and collected during our very tight time line. She made the process very easy. We would recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home! Thanks Lauren!
Lauren was amazing to work with. If it weren't for her I am sure I would not be moving into my new house now-- this was not a standard/typical home. This was also my first time buying a home and Lauren hustled from start to finish. She got me up to speed on what to expect and guided me along the way. She found places for me to consider and even went to a few without me as I was out of town. And she helped me get the right team in place to seal the deal after some hurdles. All in all, I got exactly what I was looking for and more, all thanks to Lauren.
Lauren made our home buying process so easy. She was on top of every detail and available whenever we needed her . If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. Not only is she knowledgable but her sunny personality and positive attitude helped us to find our perfect home.
Lauren was immediately able to "get" what I was looking for in a home.
She was patient and knowledgable and it was a pleasure working with her.
I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
My overall experience working with Lauren was excellent. Lauren's knowledge of the downtown, Carolina Place and Forest Hills neighborhoods was the primary reason I chose her as my realtor. Her availability to show houses and her responsiveness to email, phone and text message assured me that I had made the right choice in realtor.
Lauren went above an beyond during the entirety of my home purchase process. She worked well with my lender and dealt with a handful of discrepancies while under contract quickly and without issue.
Laurens' hard work landed me a beautiful home in the neighborhood I desired, all the while making the process and smooth and stress free as possible. I can't say enough good things about Lauren. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her. If you are looking purchase or sell a home in Wilmington, I highly recommend Lauren Mintz as your Realtor.
Lauren was a true professional from start to finish. When I first contacted her and explained that I wanted to buy a 150 year old, multi-unit property, using a VA loan, AND I was in Afghanistan, I wondered if she'd tell me my situation was too difficult. But, quite the opposite, Lauren said we would make this deal happen, and she worked tirelessly to ensure it did. Lauren single-handedly tracked every detail and coordinated all parties, keeping everyone at the table when the deal otherwise could've fallen apart. I honestly do not believe this deal would've closed with any other agent, and I will use her in any and all future real estate transactions.
Lauren did a great job. I have recommended her to others. She answered all of my question, kept me in the loop and helped guide me through the whole process.
Lauren was an amazing realtor to work with. She accommodated all of our requests to see houses outside business hours and had done her research before each showing. She's professional, polite, knowledgeable and all around a wonderful individual to work with. I will absolutely be recommending her to friends/family looking to buy a house.
Lauren was great to work with! She is knowledgeable of the Wilmington, NC area and always put my interests first. She constantly shared new houses that matched my interests with me so I had the chance to see each house as soon as possible. She was able to meet me at different house at the drop of a dime. Any question I had regarding the house or the process as a whole, she was able to answer. She is truly someone who puts her clients first. I would highly recommend working with Lauren!!
Lauren went out of the way to ensure I found the house that suited me. When I wanted to switch my home search from the city limits to further outside of town, she sent me comprehensive listings, usually within minutes, if not by day's end. If I called Lauren, and she couldn't answer, she would always get back to me that same day, including Sundays. I ultimately bought about 45 minutes from my previous residence, and every time we went out to look, Lauren would drive. Her customer service, in my opinion, is second to none, and she made a stressful endeavor very easy. I would definitely recommend Lauren for your real estate needs, and if the situation arises in the future, I look forward to working with her again.
I have bought and sold several homes over time and worked with numerous Realtors. Lauren is without a doubt the most dedicated Realtor I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Her energy and depth of knowledge through the sales, legal, mortgage and closing process is awesome. Lauren looked out for my interests and constantly kept me in the loop every step of the way.
I give Lauren a 5 star rating!!
We are so lucky to found Lauren! She was the best part of the whole home buying process. First- we relocated from San Francisco and she worked so hard getting to know us and our likes/needs. She had to tour most of the properties with out us and always came back with a stellar report for us. When it came time to closing- she was so on top of things. She is very easy to get a hold of, and was so organized. She never misses a beat and I felt so safe and comfortable with her in all aspect in buying a home. Honestly- a true gem in this field that works so hard. Highly recommended.
THIS IS NOT YOUR NORMAL REVIEW/REFERRAL! -- After losing my wife to cancer last year I decided to sell our 4BR/4Bath home in Crosswinds. It needs to be said, that my past experience with real estate agents has not been good. As with most major decisions I prayed for guidance. I asked the Lord to "guide me to a real estate agent who is open, honest, a good communicator, really smart, trustworthy, professionally competent, energetic..." ... AND (because I am still mourning the loss of my wife), I asked that the agent be "50% Guardian Angel!" I interviewed three agents, one of whom was the answer to my prayer-- Lauren Mintz embodied all of the virtues I asked for. She helped me set a "realistic" asking price that was $20,000 above what I had paid for our home the previous year. She took charge of everything: selecting a photographer, and (using only existing furnishings) tastefully staged the house to be photographed. The pictures, (destined to appear with the MLS listing/Zillow/etc) were fabulous!
The following Thursday, as I left for Pennsylvania to attend a funeral there, I told Lauren to feel free to do anything she wanted to make the home "attractive to buyers." And, oh boy, did she! When I returned on Sunday, her excited voice was on my answering machine saying: "Guess what! Over Friday and Saturday, the house had 11 showings. I have two contracts in hand and another coming tomorrow. " The house sold at the asking price. In addition to displaying first-rate competence in preparing the listing and artfully helping me to stage the home, Lauren proved to have an excellent eye for detail throughout the process of reviewing all of the documents relating to the sale of our home--for which. by the way, the closing went off right on schedule. AND although it embarrasses her when I say it, she completely fulfilled the role of "guardian angel" with her kindness, sensitivity, and generosity of spirit. At all times, I felt that "she had my back" in dealing with buyers, other agents and attorneys. Thanks again, Lauren! As one of her competitors said of her, "She's going to do well in this business!" FROM HIS LIPS TO GOD'S EARS! Thank you again. Lauren--you truly have been an answer to prayer! UPDATE: Lauren now acts as my "buyers agent" and we are approaching a closing on the perfect downsized next home for me, at age 73, to live next.
Lauren is very professional, hard working and always makes time to give me great service. She has been invaluable in my home search and really understands my needs in a new home.
