Lauren's track record of netting sellers many thousands of dollars over asking and in negotiating winning bids for her buyers despite tight inventory is bound to be of benefit to you whether you are a Buyer, a Seller, or an investor. One recent listing sold for 20% over asking due to her excellent preparation, presentation and marketing of the property.
Lauren lives in near-in NW Portland, a location that is centrally located to her clients from Forest Grove, Oregon to Gresham, Oregon and from Happy Valley, Oregon to Ridgefield, Washington. Her association with two RE/MAX offices in the Pacific Northwest offer all the benefits of RE/MAX branding with a small office approach ability to offer personal attention.
She is married to Garth Sheriff, NCARB, an award winning architect in both Oregon and California (who is available to consult with her clients for quick consultations prior to purchase) and together they have two adult daughters, one a CBS news anchor in Tri-Cities, Washington and one a Veterinarian in Vancouver, Washington. She spends her time helping friends and clients remodel, reading avidly about politics (she leans left!), and prior to COVID exploring the many great eateries and cultural events in Portland. She also finds there is nothing like a great trashy novel and a bubble bath to relax when not snuggling with her husband, two cats Wally and Buzz, or her stupid but lovable little Pomeranian Bentley or watching her daughters compete in equestrian and dance competitions.
PS Lauren's Mom lived to be 103, so Lauren has a real soft spot for working with Seniors -- she holds a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) credential as well and understands that these members of the Greatest Generation need some special attention.
