In 2004, Lauren embarked on her journey in commercial real estate, specializing in tenant representation and office leasing within the Chicago market. Over the years, she expertly managed a diverse ownership portfolio spanning 3 million square feet. Lauren’s clientele included high-profile Landlords such as Equity Office Properties Trust and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, along with iconic Class A office buildings like Prudential Plaza and The Rookery Building.
After returning to her hometown of Upper Arlington to raise her three children, Mackenzie (in 6th grade), Owen (in 4th grade), and Hayden (in 1st grade) – Lauren missed the commercial real estate business and decided to join the Elford Realty team in September 2023.
In her new role, she will be focusing on the leasing and selling/buying of industrial, flex, and land properties. Lauren’s meticulous attention to detail and unwavering dedication to understanding her client’s unique needs positions her to provide significant value to her clients. Recognizing the importance of relationships, Lauren is committed to building trust with local brokers, landlords, and businesses, creating a network that fosters mutual, long-term business growth.
Lauren completed her studies at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, graduating in 2002 with a BA in International Business. She enriched her education with a semester abroad in Madrid, Spain, and was an active participant in Division II volleyball. Beyond her professional pursuits, Lauren finds solace in activities like yoga, pilates, and lap swimming. She enjoys quality time with her children, partner, John, and their three dogs: Lucy, a 16 yr old morkie, and their two rescues they adopted from Stop The Suffering, Leo and Georgie.
