Lauren’s Master’s-level education has served her well as a Realtor with the Jo-Ann Forster Team. She has an unmatched desire to see her clients happy and comfortable in their real estate transactions. She works hard to guide her clients on their own journey home with compassion and expertise. With these skills, Lauren has become one of the top three producers with the Jo-Ann Forster Team.
