Lauren is a fourth generation East Bay native proud of her deep cultural roots in Oakland's vast artistic communities. She started her real estate career just before the birth of her daughter, Kadence, and has come to the conclusion that being a realtor is what she is meant to do in this life. The roll of a Realtor encompasses many of her passions, including relationship building, community involvement, design, and customer service. At Kim Cole Real Estate, Lauren found great inspiration in the trust that was gained through extensive market knowledge, professionalism, collaboration, and compassion.

For Sellers, Lauren ensures timely project management, high level pricing and marketing strategy and an extensive network of service providers, to support a low stress, complete service experience in prepping the home for sale. Lauren also also brings a decade of experience in design and home staging to add value to each and every sale. She works closely with her broker, her team, and the entire support staff to ensure customers gain the attention and quality that they deserve.

For Buyers, Lauren empowers her clients with the tools and knowledge to effectively move through the home buying process. She is well versed in the Oakland, Richmond, Emeryville, Alameda, Kensington, El Sobrante, Concord, Pittsburgh, Orinda, and Walnut Creek areas. With team support, timelines are defined, and expectations are clearly set. Lauren is inspired by helping people onto the next stage of life, all while creating stability for the future, growth, security, memories, and a place to share happiness.

Before Real Estate, Lauren grew a successful jewelry business and a Home Staging business. As sole proprietor, she combined her artsy passion for design with her organized business mind. Lauren has a Bachelor of Art's degree from San Francisco State University in Humanities. She enjoys spending time with her daughter, hiking the nearby Oakland Hills, beach activities, yoga, cooking, and still making jewelry from her home studio.


We really enjoyed working with Lauren. She helped us write 2 offers, and was extremely responsive through the process. She also provided us with a lot of insight on how to structure our offer. She was also very patient as we went through the process of home buying, and did not push us at all. -516 Beloit Ave, Kensington, CA
My husband and I cannot express enough how incredibly amazing Lauren was to work with! As first time homebuyers, we felt extremely overwhelmed by the home-buying process. However, after meeting Lauren, we felt so much more at ease. From the get-go, Lauren was so incredibly patient and communicative, and she never (for even a slight moment) made us feel pressured or doubtful that she had our best interest at heart. The world (especially the Bay Area!) needs more agents like Lauren. If we could give her more than a 10, we would! Thank you, Lauren!!! -66 Tara Rd, Orinda, CA
Lauren was awesome! I was under pressure with time and she was so wonderful with all the right information to help me purchase my first home. Intelligent and fast to respond to all my questions. She has a great knowledge of the housing market and helped me make the perfect offer when the time came. Her entire team were amazing to work with!! I feel so very fortunate that Lauren was my realtor! -55 Fairmount Ave #311, Oakland, CA
Lauren is great. She offers the best help I can image from a real estate agent. Not only she is super reponsive for any questions from me (the replies of her messages and emails are fast and helpful), she also provides best and professional help on evaluating the property, helping tour and inspect the condo. Really enjoy this property purchasing experience with Lauren and will definitely work with her in the future. -1585 Brunswig Ln #2, Emeryville, CA
Lauren was absolutely incredible. As first time homeowners, we had so many questions on neighborhoods, submitting offers, the overall process and more. Lauren was not only incredibly communicative, but she was also very easy to get a hold of and provided great advice and insight as we navigated our home buying experience. Our close was unbelievably smooth thanks to her expertise and professionalism. She was also a joy to work with - always pleasant with a smile on her face. -4314 Wilson Ln, Concord, CA
