Print Agent Bio

I believe I was the only first grader who, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, responded “a Realtor.” I made that dream come true after graduating Summa Cum Laude with a double major in Communication and Theatre Arts from the University of Arizona by immediately starting my career as a full time real estate Broker at Hasson Company Realtors. I was lucky enough to join the Hasson team having had lifelong exposure to the process of buying and selling property, as well as the fluctuations inherent to the market.

One of my favorite hobbies is teaching Barre3, which is a fitness class combining the disciplines of Yoga, Pilates, and Ballet located in Portland and Lake Oswego. Being an instructor at Barre3 requires energy, commitment, and above all, the ability to understand the needs and desires of others. The indescribable feeling I attain when helping a client at Barre3 is the same feeling I achieve in each and every Real Estate transaction. I believe a great Realtor knows more than just the market, he or she knows people. A great Realtor takes the time to understand what his or her client wants out of the buying/selling process, and then develops a plan accordingly. A great Realtor gets you where you want to go, using a path you want to take. This belief is what sets me apart from most agents, how I launched myself to a referral-based business, and why I feel I was recognized in 2015 by the National Association of Realtor’s as one of the top 30 agents under the age of 30 in the Nation.

You may find a Realtor with more years in the business than me, but I can guarantee you will not find a Realtor who brings more passion, sincerity, or excitement when working with you to buy or sell a home, than I will.

Designations  

Hasson Relocation

Lauren was everything I could have hoped for in a first home-buying experience. She was thoughtful, methodical, caring and enthusiastic. It made the entire process both comfortable and fun. She was incredibly knowledgeable and personable so I never had issue asking questions or trying to understand the process. I would highly recommend Lauren to anyone in the market for a new home. She's the complete package and an absolute pleasure to work with!

— Max Schlesinger, Star Park

Lauren is sharp, professional, knows the marketplace and is a fantastic representative, whether buying or selling. We purchased our “dream” home through her in October of 2015, and were dealing with a difficult seller. Lauren’s business acumen, knowledge and market experience came through and we obtained our price. She then sold our condo in six weeks! Four years prior, she sold our home in one day! And we got our asking price. Very pleasant businessperson to deal with and tells it like it is. Would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. Hasson Company Realtors and Lauren in particular, have our highest possible rating.

— Kelly & Regina Atwood, Retired Senior Account Executive at Oak Tree Insurance, Inc.

We came to Lauren Hasson after two unsuccessful attempts at finding agents that would invest themselves into into our home search as much as we were looking to invest ourselves. When we met Lauren and her team for the first time, we were a family of four (with another one on the way) that had sold our home quickly and struggled to find a new home in a very competitive housing market. After our first meeting, I knew we were in the best hands we could be. She took extensive notes, asked us a lot of questions, and never once conveyed that our high expectations were unrealistic. She hit the ground running, wrote personal letters to potential listers, knocked on doors, and drove around neighborhoods. She even took videos of homes when one of us couldn't be at a showing. She was always available to talk by phone, respond to emails, and answer texts right away. Overall, what really spoke to her integrity was when she told us what was not right for us. There were times we wanted to succumb to the disparity of our situation and make concessions she knew we would regret. It was worth the wait! In the end, we not only landed in the neighborhood we originally wanted, we found a near impossible one level living floor plan we gave up on months before. She works fast, is a fierce negotiator, and incredibly intuitive. Even after closing, she has been an invaluable resource to us. We will always be appreciative!

— Katie and Alan Cox

Working with Lauren and Leslie was an absolutely wonderful experience. We have four kids, six and under, and we chose to sell our current home and buy a new house at the same time. Amazingly, due to Lauren and Leslie's talent and knowledge as a real estate team, this experience was fun, rewarding, and about as stress free as could be. They took the time to get to know our crazy family and our particular quirks and interests. When looking for homes, it wasn't uncommon that they were holding our baby as well as chatting about bedrooms with our older children. They made the process fun and relaxed, and we greatly benefited from their perfectly personalized advice.

— Cindy and Dave Anderson

From our first meeting to closing the purchase of my new home, she was thorough, responsive, a great listener, knowledgeable about the houses and areas we looked, and efficient with the process. She impressed me with her “get on it” approach. In fact, she made calls on my behalf to my lender to ensure they were in step with our process and timing which I was not aware at the time, the lady has moxie! Besides her impressive knowledge and ability, she is charming, fun and very pleasant to work with. Together we found a house and completed the deal in less than 30 days. And I have to include praise for Leslie her assistant who I found to be helpful and efficient, responsive with questions and requests for help, and so pleasant - they are a great team.

— Suzeanne Mager, Owner & Operator of Guten Foods, Inc.

As my husband and I reflect on our two-year real estate journey in the Portland area, we realize how fortunate we were to have Lauren Hasson and her assistant, Leslie Mason, help us along the way. They took the time to get to know us and, as busy as they were, they always made us feel like we were their most important priority. We couldn't have asked for a better team with the knowledge and tenacity to make things happen in both buying our new house and selling our condo.

— Beeber and Bill Clevenger

Lauren Hasson was the best agent I've ever had the pleasure to work with. I had a double transaction and both were quick and painless. If I had any questions or concerns Lauren was willing to do what it took to find the answers and make me feel comfortable. If you are selling your property or searching for you dream home, I highly recommend Lauren for your real estate needs.

— Helen Cain

We were concerned that the current, crazy real estate market would force us to compromise on choosing a new place to live. Lauren was relentless in helping us find the right place. With her patience and guidance, we scoured every corner of Portland and the surrounding area until we found the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood.

— Huntley McNabb and Jenn Duugan

I was impressed from the very beginning. Lauren came in looked around then went to work on an analysis of the neighborhood to determine housing costs. She presented the data in a very organized matter. Then to save her time she paid to have the inspection done before we listed. Very strategic on her behalf! We had a lot of work to get the house ready, both Lauren and Leslie coached us and gave us names and numbers of tradesmen to handle specifics. They patiently waited for us to get the house ready and it sold and closed at an alarming rate, giving us the amount we asked for plus a little more! I don’t think we could have had a better experience. Thank you Lauren and Leslie! You are the best!

— Sharon and Leon Drennan

After working with multiple realtors in different transactions over the last few years, we decided to work with Lauren when it came time to sell our home and buy a new one. We were amazed at the difference! Her level of professionalism and expertise, from her in-depth market analysis to the hands-on way of dealing with every issue that arose was impressive. As a busy family with 3 small children, it was so helpful to have Lauren and team working on our side, anticipating the next step and helping us through the process. We would recommend Lauren to anyone, and will definitely use her and her team for any future real estate needs we may have!

— Ben and Marki James

We first started working with Lauren Hasson in the fall of 2014. Our transaction was a complicated one that took nine months to complete. The home had been taken off the market; our seller didn’t have legal title and the market heated up wildly during our wait for probate to finish. Lauren used that time effectively by establishing a positive trusting relationship with the seller. She educated him on the facts of his home in todays’ market and delicately informed him of our interest in the property. Her patience and perseverance paid off. Once out of probate, she skillfully managed our transaction through offer, acceptance and closing. We have bought and sold many homes. None have been as easy as this transaction because of Lauren’s efforts. We didn’t have to worry about the details because she and her wonderful assistant Leslie Mason were “all over them”. The clarity and confidence she exhibited during our transaction was first rate. Not only did we gain a trusted real estate advisor during this time together, we also had so much fun in the process! On a personal note, it’s hard for me to describe just exactly how wonderful and fun Lauren & Leslie were to work with. They “got us” and we “got them” from the very first meeting. We consider Lauren and Leslie part of our family now and look forward to spending much more time with them in the future. We recommend them unconditionally!

— Jim and Rhonda Lukich, Retired National Sales Manager at Columbia Sportswear and Property Manager

Wow, what a great experience...from the moment we scheduled our initial appointment, to listing my property, through the entire marketing and sales process...Lauren nailed it. Professional, on time and prepared with the knowledge and experience to answer my questions and address any concerns. I have had several real estate transactions in the Portland metro area and have often felt most agents say the same things and offer the same tools and ideas going into the relationship, but then don’t often follow through and things can become unpleasant. Not with this team. I have a busy schedule with my job in marketing and often don’t have time for every little detail. I never had to worry though, because this team takes care of everything. Example: Due to litigation issues in my condo building, the closing was very complex and involved several banks, attorneys etc. and then following the inspection I needed to replace a special door handle in order to close the transaction; All of which was happening while I was out of the country. Lauren and Leslie hounded the lawyers and HOA until they got the information they needed, worked with the banks until they found a lender who could get the deal done, researched/ordered the door handle from Canada and had it installed, and kept me informed the entire time. Wow. Will I use them again...YES.

— Kim Ziebell, Former Sr. Vice President of Marketing, Lund International

Lauren is hands down the best realtor in the business. On top of knowing the business and deep diving into our specific marketplace she made us feel special and educated us along the way. The entire process from selling to buying is very complex, yet she took the time to ensure we were in the know and knowledgeable. She is very responsive and open to any and all questions. Her pricing strategy was spot on and her attention to detail in offer letters was above and beyond what was expected. Even in areas she was not well versed in such as taxes, she passed us along to an expert who made the process very easy. From the offer on our first home, the sale of that home and the purchase of our second Lauren made the time to be at every appointment. We can only imagine how hectic her schedule really is, but her assistant Leslie was the icing on the cake to a perfect partnership. The duo is on top of every detail and made the process flawless. We have the housing gods on our side because of Lauren and for that we will be clients for life!!

— Ariel and Hilary Gregerson, NIKE

Lauren sold us with her superior market analysis of our home and was much more thorough than other’s we interviewed. The photography, home brochure, pre-home inspection, and other marketing tools were stellar. She knew it was important to do things right from the very beginning. Lauren was always a top notch professional with a personal touch and warmth and we loved working with her. A wonderfully efficient and professional team, I would highly recommend Lauren and Leslie to represent any of your real estate needs.

— Kim DeMent Smith, Kim DeMent and Steve Smith, Founder and Director of Marketing of Steven Smith Teamaker

My wife and I worked with Lauren representing us in selling a home we had owned and lived in for 24 years. It was a challenge due to the size and location and very strange market conditions in the immediate neighborhood. It took nearly two years, but we found a buyer, and depended on Lauren for the price negotiations and the closing agreements and title transfers and all went like clockwork! Lauren helped find us a smaller place that exactly suits our current and future needs. We have been here about one year, and could not be happier. Throughout our relationship with Lauren, she has been diligent, professional, eager to help or advise, and accessible to us in ways that demonstrated her genuine desire to serve our needs. She is a blessing to work with!

— Tom & Ruthann Moore, Retired

“Lauren Hasson helped me sell a home after two other agents had it listed for six months each. Lauren immediately worked to stage the home and advertise it in ways that hadn’t been done previously, and it sold for more than the other two agents thought it would in less than a month. I’d highly recommend Lauren to anyone who really wants to sell a house”.

— Barry Cain, President of Gramor Development, Inc.

Lauren has great energy, enthusiasm and is extremely professional. She is an absolute joy to work with. Her analysis of the marketplace allowed us to receive an excellent price for our custom home. Her communication and responsiveness is outstanding. We never had to worry if she was on top of it on a daily basis. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

— Jack Wynne, Retired

Lauren was right on the mark in pricing our home and did an amazing job of advertising to the surrounding community. Our house sold quickly, I believe, due to her invaluable marketing skills. She was darling and so very personable along with being professional.

— Alan and Kathy Sandler, Principal Medical Director

I have never had a real estate agent I was entirely content with prior to working with Lauren. Most go through the motions and don’t earn their commission in my opinion. I have bought and sold eight houses over the years, the last three Lauren was our agent—There is no question she earned her commission on all three. I've found her to be smart, aggressive, creative and easy to do business with. She sold our downtown Portland penthouse at the worst possible time after our previous agent could not, found and negotiated our son a condo in the Pearl District that was perfect for him, and found us a off market Cabana on the lake that took years of door knocking and negotiating, but she wouldn't give up. Never say die, always positive and fun, the best I've ever dealt with. If there were a Lauren Hasson fan club I’d be President!

— Dean Lemman, CEO of Jones Sports Company & Past President of North Coast Electric

Lauren Hasson is one of most amazing real estate agents ever. She made the process of selling and buying a house seamless. Lauren came prepared to list my house, and worked with her team to get my current house into the best possible shape to attract top dollar buyers. With an immaculate house and sparkly agent, the house sold within 20 days of being listed for full asking price. Selling and buying a house at the same time was a bit intimidating, but Lauren helped me come up with a plan to conquer the task with confidence. As soon as my house was listed, Lauren put together a tour of houses for me to look at that were specific to my needs. She paid attention to what I wanted and always steered me in the right direction. She was focused, detail oriented, positive, honest and professional. Working with her on selling and buying simultaneously, she made the process on both ends effortless, and even fun. She handled all loan officers, inspections, buyer requests, bank demands and everything else thrown her way with a positive attitude. Working with Lauren Hasson not only made the process of selling and buying effortless, she made it look easy!

— Erin Moone, Founder and Owner of StarCycle

It’s about quality over quantity. At Hasson, we take tremendous pride in associating only with agents who epitomize the service, communication and professionalism that our company is known for. The agents and the company are dependent upon each other to achieve the greatest success.
