‟My wife and I bought our first home in the city recently, and Lauren was referred to us from a close family friend. Wow, we could not have asked to have a better agent to guide us through this process. Lauren was always there for us. Not to mention, 24 hours before closing we were told by our mortgage broker (not a suggested company from Lauren) th … at they were shut down by HUD. Lauren was there for us at 6:30 am calming us down and getting us back on track. We closed two weeks later with a new mortgage from Trident (shout-out to Jeremy D. at Trident, who we now call the miracle man). There are so many great things to brag about Lauren for, and she is a world class agent. Her knowledge and skill set for the city are 2nd to none. We plan to use Lauren in the future and refer her to as many friends and family as possible. Thank you, Lauren, for getting our growing family into an amazing home” Read More ▾
‟We had the most wonderful experience working with Lauren Acker Kratz. From beginning to end the search for our first home was seamless and enjoyable thanks to Lauren. She listened to our "wish list" and showed us houses that met our criteria. We were very picky and she was willing to show us dozens of houses until we found the perfect fit. She also … worked closely with us as we negotiated the final sale price. 5 years and 2 kids later we still absolutely love our house. Should we ever move we will certainly use Lauren to sell our current house and buy our next home. Thank you Lauren” Read More ▾
‟Lauren helped us sell a home in South Philadelphia recently. She was very responsive to our questions and concerns and kept us up to date on all issues that arose in the sale process. She knew the area we were selling in quite well and worked out a good, reasonable sale price with us as well as helping with details related to the paperwork and nego … tiations. I am overall very pleased with the work she did and would recommend her without reservation” Read More ▾

‟Lauren was our agent on a home that was in the Graduate Hospital area of Philadelpha. In a down market, we sold our house in 10 days. We were thrilled. Two years later, we listed a second home we owned in Fishtown (which we had on the market once before and it didn't sell). Lauren sold the house within the month. She works hard and makes sure every … thing is right. I highly recommend Lauren, she knows the city and she knows how to negotiat” Read More ▾
‟I've heard that buying a house for the first time can be scary, but whoever started that rumor must not have had Lauren as her real estate agent! Lauren Acker is truly a superstar. After looking at a dozen or so homes with various Realtors that I felt didn't have the time for me, or weren't taking me seriously, I came across Lauren and never looked … back! She was down to earth and very knowledgeable right from the beginning. I always felt very comfortable asking her any question I had (and I had a lot of questions). She made everything seamless and as easy as possible and I'd never use anyone else” Read More ▾
‟Lauren Ackerman was our agent for the sale of our Mom's house. She provided info regarding pricing but respected our decisions. From listing to closing the house sold for full price in less than 2 months. Lauren was on top of everything throughout the whole process, also available & quick to respond. We were very happy with her!”
