After studying psychology at Whitman College, Lauren moved to Seattle, where she worked in the nonprofit sector. It was after a negative experience, working with a traditional agent when buying her first home, that she became interested in real estate. That was when she turned to Redfin—and fell in love with the company.
With a flexible schedule, Lauren normally arrives between 8 and 9 AM. She spends about half of her day working in Redfin’s email program to promote new listings, and spends the other half meeting with agents to learn what they need to be more successful at their jobs—and makes sure that happens.
