We worked with Lauren Yoder to purchase our new home in the Austin area. We could not have been happier with the work that Lauren did for us. Lauren was referred by a friend of ours and we are glad we gave her a call! She listened and understood our goals to ensure the homes we viewed fit our parameters and finances. Much of our home buying process was done virtually and Lauren did everything possible to make it easy for us and worked out better than we could have wanted. Lauren works extremely hard for her clients, she is thorough, responsive, and knows her stuff. Give her a call for your real estate needs, you’ll be glad you did!
Lauren came recommended by two completely separate friends to me and my fiancé when searching for our first home and we are so thankful that we got set up with her! Lauren was phenomenal to work with. She did all of the things you would hope for from a realtor in terms of timeliness and organization; AND she went ABOVE AND BEYOND for everything else! When we walked through houses Lauren was able to use her expertise to guide us to a house that would be within our budget, a smart investment, and a house that does not cause us an insurmountable amount of work.
Lauren was able to guide us through the incredibly competitive offer process to get a house. She was able to get us moving quickly to see the house and put in an offer quickly. Even more importantly she was able to make sure we offered a competitive offer not only with knowing the market and prices but also by changing up our contract creatively to get the seller’s attention.
After the offer process Lauren was even more helpful by making sure we were coordinated with all of the folks we were working with and that we knew all of the tasks that we needed to get done.
And even when Lauren was temporarily unable to meet us at houses she made sure to set us up with Katie who was able to help us through the processes! It feels challenging to even sum up everything that Lauren did throughout the house buying process – we are so grateful to have worked with her and recommend Lauren to anyone and everyone who is interested in buying a house!
Overall the transaction went great, but Lauren was the main reason it went well especially since we were out of state. There were many follow ups and walk throughs for a new build and she was instrumental in helping with those. Lauren did everything well, but especially just owning the whole process and being persistent with the builder. She had great insight to anything we asked and brought up things that we hadn’t considered and she clearly had our best interests in mind. We’ve used many agents in the past and Lauren is above and beyond the best we’ve used. She was a referral from a friend of a friend and I’m glad it worked out!

Lauren was over and beyond our expectations and was by far the best real estate agent we have had. Her detail to everything was amazing, especially since we were out of state. She is smart and knowledgeable and would highly recommend her to anyone.
Lauren was superlative as always. There’s a reason I’ve worked with her on a dozen transactions or so and will continue to do so.
The transaction was easy as could be. Lauren is amazing and makes transactions so easy. She goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly and even helps to coordinate inspections, repairs ect. We have now bought two homes and sold one with Lauren and all three transactions have been a breeze. Not to mention that both purchases were highly competitive and she was great at strategizing and we got them both. Since working with Lauren we have also bought and sold homes in other states and both times we had to do so much more and it was a much bigger hassle. We often talk about how we need a Lauren in the other states we own in. We actually had a conversation recently about how we may as well keep investing in Austin because Lauren makes it so easy.
I recently worked with Linda and successfully on closed a property that was a bit of a long shot. We cold called and she was immediately helpful in getting us information about the place, finding out where we could get answers to some complicated zoning questions, and communicating with the seller’s agent. We eventually had our offer accepted after several prior ones fell through – this was definitely a case where a good agent keeping us on the seller’s radar was a necessity in making this happen. We were also able to complete the deal from out of town, which can often be difficult but Linda made it simple and straightforward. She also has a good network – we’ve been satisfied with the professionals that she has referred us to for inspections, etc.

Working with Lauren was the absolute best. She made sure we understood the process from beginning to end and was always on top of it when there was something we needed to do. This was so important to us as first-time home buyers, because at times we didn’t know what types of questions we should be asking Lauren and ourselves and how the process all came together. Additionally, we felt like we could really trust Lauren to give us her honest, professional opinion when visiting a property – she was looking out for what worked for us and what we wanted, not just trying to sell us a house as quickly as possible. My boyfriend and I could say great things about Lauren all day and there wasn’t anything we thought she could do better on. We will 100% recommend Lauren to anyone looking to buy a house and if we ever buy another property we will reach out to Lauren.
Lauren is the real estate agent who is effective, efficient, and most importantly cared about her clients to the upmost degree!
If you are looking to have the best home buying experience, I highly recommend working with Lauren.
She makes the whole process enjoyable and stress-free. Her knowledge and willingness to help gained my trust and confidence in a matter of seconds.
I was told that purchasing a home was a headache but Lauren made this cliche untrue.
On the first call she understood what I was looking for and “hit the nail”.
Because of her, I can call myself a homeowner.
Lauren is not just any agent, she is the BEST one.
Once again, I highly recommend working with Lauren.
Lauren Yoder helped me buy my first home. The transaction went incredibly smooth. Lauren was proactive about getting me to address things on my end before they became hiccups, and I have the strong impression she was working the other side just as much to make sure that even if there were issues, I’d never know it on my end.
Lauren took the time to explain every part of the process to me. Her initial offer of a consultation – essentially an educational session about real estate – was unique; I haven’t had another realtor do that, and I didn’t realize how much I wanted it until she offered. She has infinite patience for questions. I also admire her loyalty to her network, her transparency, and her obvious commitment to ethics.
I worked with Lauren Yoder to purchase my first home and she made the process so easy! She walked me through every step of buying a home, listened to and addressed my concerns, and got me in touch with super knowledgeable lender, inspector, and contractors during the whole process. She made working with a difficult seller as easy as possible for me and helped me negotiate the best deal. She was super communicative throughout the whole process and got us to closing without delay! She’s even checked in after closing to make sure everything is going okay. I would absolutely recommend her and will certainly be using her again if I outgrow my new home.
