"Lauren did an amazing job listing and selling our home! She had to take on additional logistical considerations do to the fact that we were being relocated and she handled all the extra paperwork, timing issues and moving pieces adeptly and professionally. She has assembled a great team of people working with her, which is only a testament to her personal dedication, professionalism and charisma. We cannot say enough positive things and would absolutely recommend Lauren to anyone who is considering buying or selling a property in the South Bay."
– Stuart & Trish Ogg
"Lauren is an amazing real estate agent--and person! She had a thorough understanding of all our real estate agreements and paperwork, because of her law background. I find that rare. She was very knowledgeable about the local market, and her negotiation skills closed the deal. She truly goes above and beyond to get your house market ready and bring the buyers. And she's EXTREMELY professional. I would recommend her and her team again and again! Thank you, Lauren, for helping us find the perfect buyer for our cute house that I miss so much!"

"Lauren was tremendous! Extremely patient as my family was deciding whether or not to sell our family home in PV after our parents died, she counseled us on how we fixed up the house for sale - which took many months - and then worked closely with us to sell. I always felt that Lauren had our back and helped us keep our cool, especially towards the end of escrow when the buyer suddenly started doing strange things that almost forced us to kill the deal. Lauren hung in there, fought to bring the buyer back into line, and earned her stripes in our family. I can't recommend Lauren more."

"Lauren has been our partner on the purchase and sale of three homes in Manhattan Beach over the last 16 years. She is creative, supportive, highly regarded in her community and takes extra care to provide immediate feedback and turnaround on all aspects of the process. She has an amazing team of skilled professionals ranging from contract support to assistance with staging our home for sale. I felt like I had an army of supporters taking care of us with Lauren at the helm in constant contact throughout ensuring our success.
– Buyer/Seller
"We hired Lauren after interviewing the top agents in the South Bay. They were selected because of their experience, aggressive marketing plan and impressive results. Although not an easy transaction, I would highly recommend Lauren, she's everything that she advertises. She did an excellent job of broadly marketing our property, pushing buyers to get the highest possible price, counseled me on bridging any issues and was very good at communicating. I will definitely be using her on my next transaction."
– Kevin Kasseff
"We purchased our home using Lauren in 2005 based on a recommendation from a friend. There was little inventory at the time but Lauren found us the perfect home. In 2016 it was time to downsize and I immediately called Lauren. She and Lauren Forbes Group did a wonderful job selling my home for top dollar and finding me the next perfect place. Lauren is extremely professional, honest and overall a great person. I could not recommend a better person to help you buy or sell your home."
– Buyer/Seller
This is the second home we have purchased with Lauren Forbes. She is professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. The whole Lauren Forbes Group staff is quick to respond to any question or concern. Lauren handled all the little details of our home purchase efficiently and effectively, making the whole process less stressful. I highly recommend Lauren Forbes Group.
– Buyer
"Lauren represented both sides in our transaction. Her training as an attorney as well as her deep real experience made the transaction go extremely smoothly. She stuck with the transaction and kept both buyer and seller talking despite a turbulent market. Her even kneeled nature led to a successful transaction for both parties."
– Peter & Stephanie Nolan
