Lauren Sheehan

  • Lauren listed and sold my home

      Lauren represents our definition of real estate broker. So long as she is available and continues to work in this business in our region, we will always contact her for any/all real estate needs or inquiries. We don't plan on selling soon, but if that changes the first call we make will be to Lauren. We adore her personally, too–which makes it an even easier choice. Highest recommendation: and we constantly recommend her to any colleague, friend, or family member with real estate questions or goals.

    • Lauren is a highly knowledgable, strong real estate agent. She put this first time buyer (me!) at ease with her experience and advice. She was a great advocate for us and got us an amazing deal on our first home. She was there every step of the way and answered all the questions we had with solid information and patience. She guided us thru the process but I still felt in control- that my needs and opinions were respected. I would happily recommend Lauren to anyone looking for a Portland area home.

    • Lauren was very professional and easy to work with. She was very quick and responsive to all of our needs. We found a property that we wanted to close on as soon as possible. This property was an old, but desirable Portland property with much needed TLC. We needed to make sure we negotiated all of the immediate major costs without losing the sellers interest as having us as a buyer. We were happy with the price Lauren negotiated with the seller's realtor, as the other realtor was a bit of a bulldog. We will continue to use Lauren Sheehan for out future real estate needs.

    • My family and I were extremely pleased with Lauren's performance and expertise in the recent sale of my mother's home. Lauren exceeded our expectations. She went above and beyond to not only negotiate on our behalf, but was knowledgeable regarding needed repairs and was able to provide us with the necessary resources with which to make those repairs. I would not hesitate to recommend Lauren to anyone I know who is shopping for a real estate agent and would certainly hire her again in the future should I need such services again.

    • Lauren helped my husband and I with two purchases, one condo in the Pearl and one home in NW Portland. She was able to navigate these complex and very different type of transactions with ease, demonstrating a confidence beyond her years as an agent. She is thorough, professional, smart and fun!We continue to benefit from Lauren's services in property management, where she has proved to be very skillful, precise, and an excellent negotiator. She actually found a tenant in two days.Whether it be your first home buying experience, or your tenth, a short sale, a listing, or a rental, Lauren is your gal!!

      - user23638982
    • Lauren was a great agent. She was responsive to our inquiries or had an associate in her stead. Very personable and communicative, Lauren provided a great service in a very difficult situation. Lauren was great, the sellers agent, not so much. In the end Lauren pulled the deal together for us.

      - Destini Chlopek
    • We used Lauren as an agent for buying our forever home. She excelled at helping us find homes within our search criteria. Lauren was flexible with her time and allowed us to meet at hours that suited our complicated work schedules. When we are ready to begin our search in the future for investment properties we will rely upon Lauren to help us.

    • Lauren took the time to listen and understand us, each showing reflected an increasing understanding of our needs, wants, and must haves. It was a pleasure working with her and ultimately we got what we wanted!!

      - user46500953
    • It was a pleasure working with Lauren. Lauren was very knowledgeable of area that I wanted to be in and sent me updates on new listing on a regular basis . Thank you for all your hard work.

      - Cindy Phelps
    • I met Lauren through Zillow, and I knew it was a good fit right from the start. She was encouraging and sympathetic to the unique position I was in. She really went to bat for me when I had problems with my Lender (who was a friend of a friend...lesson learned!) and offered as many solutions as she. could possibly come up with. She tried to make the experience as painless as possible for me, and for that I am eternally grateful. I cannot express how thankful I am to have had Lauren on my side, when no one else seemed to be. Highly, highly HIGHLY recommended!

      - user0139511
    • Lauren is very attentive and motivated. She responds promptly to questions with well researched answers. Our purchase was unusually complicated with a pending sale of over three months. Lauren was there to protect our interests and negotiate changes at every step. I would highly recommend Lauren for your real estate needs. - Jonathan

    • We found Lauren at an Open house in our old neighborhood three years ago. She worked with us off and on (mostly on) for the past three years diligently until we finally found and purchased our dream home in July 2013. We saw each other through babies and marriages - and she never lost patience with us as we took our time waiting for that perfect listing. She showed us tons of properties in Portland and always knew the answers to our questions - if she didn't she found out immediately and got right back to us. When we finally found our home, she got us through the purchasing process as painlessly as was possible and worked tirelessly on our behalf as we got bogged down in red tape and delays (none of which were her fault). I am so glad we found her and have recommended her to several of our friends. We will most definitely use her again if we we ever buy or sell real estate in the future. She started out as our realtor but ended up as our friend.

      - user9335725
    • I really enjoyed working with Lauren as a realtor. She was always very easy to get in touch with via email and phone and did a great job of keeping me updated without prompting. I felt I could talk to her frankly and that she gave me good advice, and she was great at setting up things like bids and working with the listing agent to get the repairs done that I needed. My house needed a new roof as a condition of the purchase. The process ended up being pretty drawn out due to the schedule of the roofing company and the weather, but Lauren was great at pursuing updates from the company and passing them on. When the roof was done and they were finishing the gutters, she even insisted on them letting her up on the roof to see the work and make sure it was finished for the bank appraisal! In summary, I would highly recommend Lauren. As a woman myself, making major purchases can easily be a frustrating experience, but having Lauren helping me really made the process much less intimidating. In summary, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

    • Lauren was amazing to work with. She not only listed and sold my home, but also found me my new home. She made the process so easy and quick and I knew she always had my best interest in mind. Lauren never pushed me into accepting an offer on my home or making an offer on one I was looking at. Instead, she walked me through all the options and let me decide. She was incredible knowledgable about the market, the process of buying and selling, negotiating on my behalf, and extremely timely with all her correspondence. Best of all we ended our transaction as friends. I would highly recommend Lauren to help you with your buying and selling needs. You will not be disappointed!!

      - user9993452
    • Lauren was more then we could have ever expected from a real estate agent! My husband and I had a good feeling about Lauren from the first moment we met her, she did not have the feel of a typical salesperson, but rather just felt like a real person and an advocate for her clients. She was honest about her opinions on each home we saw and never tried to push us into buying something we didn't like. She even talked us out of rushing into getting a home that we were comprising on. She was very responsive and receptive to our needs and preferences. She even came down with us to sign the Title paperwork because she knew it would be difficult for us w/ our 9 month old daughter. She was an excellent advocate and negotiator on our behalf and made this process as easy as she for us as she possibly could. I absolutely could not recommend her enough!!!

    • I found Lauren's contact information when I first began my home buying process. As a first time home buyer, I needed someone knowledgable and experienced to guide me through the process. She was well reviewed online and I am so happy that she was the first and ONLY agent I contacted. Lauren and her partner, Traci Boettcher, were a fantastic team. I was full of questions and doubts throughout last fall as I searched for houses. Lauren was patient, sincere, and clear in her communications. Every time I met with her to look at houses, I felt like I had someone on my side to help me find the right home. In my price range, $110-130k, there was a lot of competition from other buyers and cash offers but Lauren helped me stay positive and realistic. In less time than I thought, I found my house with her and Traci's enormous help. When my loan closing nearly got derailed through unforeseen circumstances, Lauren saved the day with her dedication and expertise. If you are a first time home buyer, even if you think your budget is too low to be taken seriously by an agent, you would be in excellent hands with Lauren.

    • I was nervous going into this home purchasing experience. I spoke with Lauren via phone about what I was looking for. I liked her immediately on the phone. When we met in person to "just look" a few months later I was instantly at ease. She knows everything and everyone, takes time to understand what the buyer wants/needs and has a great ability to read people. <br/><br/>We found the perfect house on our second outing. A house that on paper I never would have shown any interest. But, based on what Lauren knew about us, the things that were "must haves" and our lifestyle...she had a gut feeling. She was spot on! From there every single detail of the purchasing process went smoothly. Lauren handled all the details, kept me informed regularly, always offered all of the available options along with her opinions and negotiated a fantastic deal on our dream home! Buying a home can be a stressful experience, but this was just a breeze for us. I can't recommend Lauren highly enough. She's a gem!

      - user2177463
    • Lauren was incredibly helpful with our off season sale of our house in SE Portland and then a quick turnaround on the purchase of our new house. We couldn't have imagined things would go that smoothly and quick. She will get plenty of referrals from us.

      - Greg Lind
    • My wife & I would highly recommend Lauren, She listened to us on what we expected out of our Home and Lauren gave us her expert opinion on a price we were comfortable with. Not only did Lauren get our house listed quickly, the house sold in 4 day's. Wonderful experience. Tim & Becky

      - user0403146
    • This is the second home I have purchased and sold one with Lauren and continues to exemplify excellence in every facet. Lauren is very professional and was able to make the home buying experience smooth. She was able to help me get all the necessary contractors in for inspections and handled things beyond I would have ever expected from a agent. Thank you Lauren for all your help and I will defiantly continue to recommend.

      - hollyandkevin
    • Lauren was extremely helpful and patient as we searched for the perfect home. We started our search in SE Portland then expanded our search throughout Washington County and Lauren was there with us each step of the way. She was very knowledgeable, timely and professional and I would HIGHLY recommend her as an agent to anyone.

      - zuser20140301144008933
    • We really consider ourselves (my wife and I) fortunate to have had Lauren been recommended to us for an agent in buying our first home. Lauren is the complete package - knowledgeable, personable, professional, and has great follow through. As a bonus, she lives in the area (Milwaukie) that we wanted to buy in. I absolutely recommend using Lauren for your real estate needs.

    • Highly likely to recommend|5.0Report a problem06/13/2014 - monicahanlin2002Bought a home in 2014 in OR 97267.Local knowledgeProcess expertiseResponsivenessNegotiation skillsI have very high expectations for the professionals that I hire, and I ask a lot of questions. Let me tell you, Lauren Sheehan is a dream. I considered quite a few agents, even parted ways with one. And I am thankful I listened to my gut in choosing Lauren to help us buy our first home.After working with her for just a couple weeks, I quickly realized I could completely trust her with every aspect of buying a home - what a relief! She was even early to every appointment. And walking through a house with Lauren is extra fun because her keen attention to detail allows her to pick up on things that others don't notice. With total accountability and precise follow-through, she helped us outweigh the pros and cons of many, many listings - all while maintaining patience to my never-ending questions. Buying in a competitive market can get super nerve racking. Yet Lauren was able to take the sting out of negotiations because she handled every single step with confidence, with clarity, and with humor when needed. Throughout the whole process, Lauren remained extremely knowledgeable, encouraging and compassionate that we would indeed find the house that was meant for us. And at last we did! THEN she even coordinated trustworthy contractors to help us with renovations! We are forever thankful to her and would hire her again in a heartbeat.

    • Lauren did an excellent job of helping me purchase my home in the Gateway region. We looked at a lot of houses and she helped me fairly aggressive in my search.

      - Chris Mills
    • We worked with Lauren to list and sell our house and couldn't have had a better experience. From the start, she took immediate control of the situation and provided consistent, clear and responsive feedback, advice and help. She perfectly balanced her advice against what she understood to be both our preferences and budget and helped us draw the correct line between must haves and nice to haves. Her knowledge of the market and willingness to go to extra lengths to review past records and trends helped us set the sale price right where it needed to be. The sale agreement and negotiations were smooth and Lauren was there, in our corner, every step of the way, all the way through signing. Lauren is knowledgable and well versed in the Portland and surrounding area market and is the best asset to have on your side!

      - damaris means
    • Lauren goes the extra mile, and she's always one step ahead. She was willing to reduce her commission to help with the negotiation of the sale. Lauren also took care of getting quotes for all of my repairs, and purchased a home warranty for my new place. She has lots of energy and a determination to see her clients get the best deal. Lauren has also done her fair share of remodels, and brings lots of knowledge regarding potential value purchases, and rentals.

      - user6677350
    • I just closed on a condo in NW Portland that I absolutly love!. Lauren was wonderful to work with. She listened to my wants and needs and applied them to showings that met my expectations and budget. I always felt she was my advocate during the neogotiations phase and because of her skill and market knowledge I got the best deal possible. From start to closing she keep me informed and support me emotionally through the process. I would not hesitate to use talents in the future and I recommend her highly to anyone looking for a skilled realitor.

      - gail callison
    • Lauren has been a fantastic asset in the process of finding our new house and selling the old house. Her ability to be patient in a house search to find a forever home was one of things that made this a low stress process. If you're in the market to find a home in the greater Portland area, Lauren is definitely someone to consider!

      - cbodamer
    • This was my first time buying a house and Lauren was amazing! She guided me through every step and explained the entire process. She responded to my emails within minutes, thoughtfully answering each and every question, which was very impressive in itself. She went way above and beyond and did so with a caring and helpful spirit. She is excellent at what she does and is very intelligent. I never had to step foot in an office. All documents can be signed via docusign! She made this process smooth and easy, and I made a friend in the process. Thank you Lauren!!!!

      - Stephanie Horton
    • Lauren consistently goes above and beyond to help. Anytime you need her she responds and if she doesn't have the information, she gets it for you ASAP. Her knowledge of the market and all the sundry things that go into buying and selling a home is wonderful. I was a first time home buyer and Lauren held my hand the whole way, no question was too small or silly. If you have never bought a house before, go with Lauren, and if you have, I promise she will still wow you.

      - Elizabeth Byron
    • Lauren did a wonderful job of selling our home and helping find us a new one. She was professional, very easy to communicate with and always made us feel like we were her only client, while I know she had other sales that kept her active. She was super knowledgable about anything to do with real estate. She was helped get us through some tough negotiations. We cannot thank her enough for her help and sound advice.

      - TinaSabin2
    • Lauren has done a great job handling me and my needs. She's focused and quick to respond to any request or concern I've had along the way. She's positive, personable, professional, and down to Earth. It has been a pleasure working with her.

      - angela.haley
    • Lauren just helped us buy our first home and we couldn't be happier with how helpful and approachable she was throughout the process. We were doing a long distance search in a really strong sellers' market, which was definitely stressful at times. Lauren kept an eye out for likely properties, previewed favorites before we made the trip to see them in person, and was always ready to answer our newbie questions about neighborhoods, the home buying process, even the probable cost of home improvements. She wasn't even fazed by our wide-ranging search (looking at fixers, flips, and everything in between). Highly, highly recommended!

      - user4995231
    • Lauren was excellent. She responded to questions and talked with all other parties quickly, and was very helpful when it came time to request repairs. An absolute pleasure to work with.

      - Tim Kye
    • Lauren helped us negotiate buying a short sale home which took over 7 months. She was in constant contact every step of the way- even on a weekly basis where there were no updates to give us. She was extremely professional. I would highly recommend her to help you with any and all of your real estate needs!

      - user8730280
    • Lauren was very helpful and quick to respond. She went out of her way to meet my son and look at condos with him. She was my eyes and ears since I was buying from out of town. Plus, she is just a really nice person. Definitely would recommend her!

      - KarenTrachsel
    • Lauren is a highly professional, reliable, and knowledgeable realtor. She helped us sell our home quickly and coordinated the transaction with the purchase of our new home with ease. Besides all of this, she was comfortable to be around and extremely friendly. Lauren replied almost always within just minutes of calls, texts, and emails. She was a true pleasure to work with and we felt lucky to have her as our realtor.

      - janaeolsen
    • Lauren was incredibly knowledgable and helpful. We were attempting to buy in a very challenging market, and she stayed patient and positive throughout the entire process.Lauren's attention to detail and hard work (on our behalf) left us feeling confident and thankful that we picked her to find us a home that was just right for us.We cannot imagine using anyone else as our real estate agent. We will definitely work with Lauren again!

      - kgazin
    • I couldn't be happier with the experience I had with Lauren. My mother passed very unexpectedly. I had no idea what I was doing, and in a very bad emotional state. I believe Lauren went above and beyond the expectations of her job, to help me deal with the selling of my moms home. I never felt any pressure, she is down to earth and has a great sense of humor. When I am ready to buy a home, Lauren Sheehan will be the one I call.

      - adiaisluv
    • Lauren is extremely knowledgable in the real estate business. She helped me get the best possible deal in a very difficult and competitive market. She really knows how to get the job done quickly and is very determined and persistent when the situation calls for it. She is a pleasure to work with and goes out of her way to help. I highly recommend her.

      - Phyllis Litke
    • Lauren was great to work with! This was an unnecessarily protracted transaction (due to the sellers' agent's lack of professionalism) and Lauren was very patient throughout. She was very responsive and I'll definitely recommend her to friends and family!

      - flacaflaca04
    • 5 stars all around... very pleasant experience selling my Portland home with Lauren!!! We priced it right, and received an offer almost immediately. Lauren was very helpful throughout the entire process.

      - user60931849
    • Lauren is awesome. I recently relocated from out of town and she took the time to educate me on the area, making sure I was going to be in the right place for me. She was super patient (I can be incredibly difficult), awesomely responsive, and ultimately the perfect realtor for me. She never got frustrated when I changed my mind again... and again. She made me feel like I was her only client when it mattered, which was incredibly important to me.

      - zuser20150318065416254
    • We've dealt with quite few agents over the years, but Lauren is exponentially better than any we've ever dealt with. Honest, fun, persistent, thorough, dependable, punctual, knowledgeable and down to earth are just a few of the words that come to mind. Lauren has repeatedly gone above and beyond what is required to make this deal work for us, and we feel like we've gained not only a home, but a new friend.

      - awby
    • Lauren is so great. She is very knowledgeable about all of the different neighborhoods in the Portland area. She gave me great advice when it came time to put an offer on a home, and kept me up to date every step along the way. She is reliable, friendly, and made me feel so comfortable during the whole process. And in the end, she helped me find the perfect house :)

      - lorin1337
    • Lauren was helpful, patient, knowledgeable and encouraging throughout a frustrating process of looking for a house in an overly competitive market (and after much time spent, still not finding the right fit). After a 2 year break she was more than happy to represent us again and this time, we found the right house and the process went very smoothly. Sellers even paid closing costs! She is always flexible, easy to get along with and never pushy. All in all, it was a great first time home buying experience.

      - rpadnick
    • Just wow! Took 40 days to close on our first house because Lauren was so punctual with the paperwork and processing. She was a fantastic negotiator and got us everything we asked for in the repair addendum after several rounds of negotiation. She knew the north Portland market well. She was always available for a quick consult when needed and she continues to check on us to see how we're settling in. Highly recommend.

      - risingsunzpr
    • Lauren was really great to work with and she understood my needs better then I did which was so helpful! After making multiple offers on different homes throughout the year, Lauren stuck with me and helped me find my first home. Buying a home in Portland can be slightly discouraging at times and Lauren helped it be as painless as possible. I work long hours and I was able to view homes, communicate easily and make offers all through a mobile device. Looking for a home can be very time consuming - working with Lauren was convenient and realistic for my schedule. I'd absolutely recommend Lauren to any of my friends.

      - Tracy Burns
    • Lauren was easy to work with and listened to all my needs and concerns as a buyer.She helped me define what were the strong and weak points of every property until we pinned down just the right one for me.She really goes out of her way to make the process easy.From beginning to end she has been here to help in every way possible.I was fortunate to have her in my corner and look forward to working with her again.

      - Kelsey Langley
    • Lauren made my home buying process easy and comfortable! she stayed on top of the listings, she knew what to look out for when going and seeing homes. As a first time homebuyer she took time in explaining the pros and cons of all kinds of situations. Highly reccommended

      - zuser20160220081407728
    • Lauren did an awesome job helping us buy a house in Sellwood during a really difficult market. She stuck with us through several unsuccessful offers and helped us tremendously with setting up appointments and connecting with contractors once we were in the inspection period. I'd strongly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
