Lauren Kende is a former practicing attorney with a proven history of helping people navigate complex and challenging situations, experience she draws on when working with her real estate clients. Passionate about customer service, she firmly believes that her attention to detail, ability to listen, strong negotiating skills and willingness to exceed expectations are keys to her continued success.
Having purchased and sold properties herself, Lauren thoroughly understands the complicated process of New York City transactions. She also possesses invaluable behind-the-scenes insight from eight years of service on her Upper West Side cooperative's board of directors. The market knowledge and guidance she provides at every step are the reasons satisfied clients have said the following:
“Selling and buying real estate in Manhattan is a notoriously stressful process.
That's why we chose Lauren. She advised us on prepping our condo for sale,
helped us negotiate a multiple offer situation and got us top dollar. On the flip side,
she patiently guided us through the co-op purchase process to ensure that we put
our best foot forward with the board. She always provided the highest level of
expertise and professionalism and we are extremely happy to have had her
working on our behalf.” --Arlyn G.
“Lauren Kende has an inexhaustible supply of both energy and good cheer
that she brings to the task of helping her clients. Her thoroughness, diligence
and intelligence made her an irreplaceable asset to my wife and me in our
search for an apartment. We could not recommend her enough.” --Joe L.
“Just wanted to extend our sincere gratitude for all that you did to facilitate
our apartment search. You went above and beyond to accommodate our
interests, answer our countless questions and allay our fears. It was a
pleasure getting to know you and we would definitely recommend
you without hesitation (and have already).” --Kate & John O.
