Lauren Spertus Blankenship
Lauren is certainly not your typical Agent. With an MBA from Yale (top of class in “Negotiations”), several successful entrepreneurial exits, years devoted to helping celebrities and affluent individuals buy/sell 6-figure show horses, and strong success as a private real estate investor - Lauren has a unique background that let her quickly build a thriving real estate practice.
Lauren also brings to her practice at Coldwell Banker a keen eye for design, tireless energy, a true passion for real estate, and strong knowledge of the market. With ties to Los Angeles that date back to grade school in Westwood and Rolling Hills through undergraduate studies at USC (Go Trojans!), Lauren is a true evangelist for all L.A. has to offer, for how each little neighborhood is special.
When not exceeding client expectations, Lauren can be found with her husband of 20 years/partner in business on a hiking trail, at a concert, club or theater, with their lovable mutts at a dog park, or sitting at a poker table. Lauren also believes in giving back to the community so she volunteers often and has sat on the Boards of a number of non-profits.
We cannot recommend Lauren and Allen highly enough! They studiously listened to our priorities, presented us with a thoughtfully curated selection of listings, made themselves constantly available for house visitations and assessments, provided insights and advice on the financial potential for each property, and responded to any request or question immediately. Most importantly, they negotiated an incredible deal on a dream home for far below list price and guided two first time homebuyers through every step of the process. They made the whole experience not just pleasant but fun, and we ultimately got a great deal as a result of their expertise!" -- AMJ

"Lauren and Allen go above and beyond to ensure that their client is totally comfortable and satisfied with their real estate decisions. This is because they are transparent and honest about their opinions and recommendations and quick to understand their client's requirements. They have a very strong work ethic and their response to any request is instantaneous. Allen's strong financial and analytical skills are highly complimented by Lauren's marketing abilities and great people skills making them an outstanding team to work with. I was very happy with the service provided and would not hesitate to recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone in the market for purchasing or selling real estate." -- CRT
