Lauren is a South Carolina native who graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in International Studies. After living in London, England, she moved to Charlotte to work with NationsBank and has called the Queen City home for over 20 years. She was involved with her sister in founding the home decor brand Taylor Burke Home, a high end furniture company that offers trendsetting designs.
Also a former resident of Charleston, S.C., she is aware of the complications involved with a move and can assist you with your relocation needs to make your process as seamless as possible. The culmination of her years of travel, cultural experiences and living abroad allows her the ability to help you determine what best fits your lifestyle and needs and can quickly get you acquainted with the Queen City.
Lauren’s success in sales and staging gives her an innate ability to bridge the gap between the real estate world and the real world. Lauren’s keen sense of style and eye for design gives her unique insight into buying and selling real estate. She considers her clients lifestyle and tastes when buying a house and helps them visualize a space in which to call home. Lauren is following in the footsteps of her mother who was a successful realtor.
She stays true to her southern roots which run deep in the South Carolina low country where in 1937 her grandfather started Cooper's Country Store - an iconic landmark that is still in operation and has been written up in national magazines such as Southern Living and Garden and Gun.
Being grounded with southern traditions and values, Lauren's philosophy is about more than just constructing a successful real estate transaction. It’s beyond just business. It’s all about relationships and making friends along they way. There is a beauty in partnership.
