A seasoned professional, my business plan is simple: I listen carefully to maximize my client's investment by giving them the kind of advice that can come only from an experienced real estate professional.
Born and raised in a small town in Missouri, I graduated from the University of Missouri and spent 12 years teaching the junior high, high school, and university levels in both Missouri and Arizona. After leaving teaching in the 1990's I became a realtor, then a broker.
In Arizona, there is considerable disparity between inexperienced agents and brokers. Brokers are required to have experience, expanded education and pass supplementary exams, far beyond what is needed to simply be a Real Estate agent. Would you use a surgeon if you knew you were their first patient? What if they were a part time doctor and delivered pizzas for extra income? They might be able to do the job but do you really want them to?
Whether you are buying or selling, using an experienced agent who is looking out for your best interest will make all the difference!
Touring homes to get a glimpse inside has always been fascinating to Lauren Wood. Combined with her love of people, the chance to become a real estate agent and work with her husband, Real Estate Broker Rodney Wood, is something Lauren has turned into a passion.
Lauren’s success comes from being extremely focused, incredibly organized, and driven to beat even the highest records. When it comes to buying and selling homes, Lauren gives no less. Her talent to manage numerous events, as well as many charity engagements has been a precursor to her real estate career. Her ability to coordinate multiple clients while making each one feel like they are her only client makes her unique in this business. Her aim is to truly know each client, to understand their needs and help them; therefore real estate is a natural fit.
As an Arizona native I truly love the Grand Canyon State. From its beautiful views to the people there is no better place to live. In growing up here I learned that trust is gained through uncompromising integrity and clear communication. I am a client centric agent that works hard to make sure my client is satisfied with every interaction and dealing they have with me.Why do I hold myself to this standard? Because first and foremost I am a husband and a father. I want my children to grow up knowing that nice guys don't always finish last for my junior high sweetheart to still see the man she fell in love with years ago and most importantly to live my dreams in honor of my daughter who left this earth before her time.
