Lauren Schaffer Licensed Real Estate Salesperson




212-729-5712, Ext. 102


Lauren is a natural entrepreneur, bringing high energy and a positive spirit to everything she does. From a very young age, she identified her personal strengths and leveraged them to generate a profit, developing an impressive professional portfolio in both musical theater and restaurant hospitality well before adulthood. This innate drive, coupled with a keen eye for style and a love for people, is what ultimately fueled her passion for luxury real estate sales in New York City.

After graduating from Vanderbilt University with B.S. degrees in Human & Organizational Development and Corporate Strategy, Lauren combined her customer service mindset and academic studies to establish a rewarding career in Human Resource Management. She spent 6 years as an HR Leader within the start-up market, working within fast-paced industries such as entertainment, digital media, financial services, and technology, where she built people programs aimed at maximizing employee potential. No matter the specific task at hand, her primary goals remained the same: put the clients’ needs first, identify creative solutions to difficult problems, and above all else, build strong and trusted relationships through ACTION. Lauren carved a professional niche within the employee relations and development sphere, where she provided the most value as a coach and mentor, and her ability to make clients feel comfortable in particularly stressful situations is extraordinary. Lauren proudly brings the same client-centric approach to her work in real estate.

In her spare time, Lauren loves attending Broadway shows, biking around the city with her husband, spending time at her family’s cabin in New Hampshire, and of course, drinking good champagne. As a Chicago native, Lauren always knew she was destined to call New York City her long-term home, but that doesn’t stop her from showcasing a healthy dose of Midwestern charm along the way!

Lauren was by far the best broker I’ve ever worked with. She was organized, patient, flexible with my schedule and very responsive to calls, texts and emails. We looked at a wide range of apartments, all within my requirements, and she gave me open and honest guidance the entire time. Her knowledge of the NYC real estate market made the process quick and painless, not to mention her friendliness and sense of humor. I will be recommending her to all my friends in NYC and will definitely be using her for my next move! - Millie D. and Greg L.

Looking for an apartment in New York is undoubtedly an overwhelming experience at first. Lauren not only made it easy for us, but enjoyable as well. She listened to our needs and provided us with several options in our locations of preference. She then joined us in visiting these places, providing honest advice and guidance along the way. Lauren was transparent throughout the process, answering all of our (many) questions, taking into account any reservations we had, and in the end helping us find the perfect place for our needs! Couldn't be happier with the experience. - Dylan B. and Nicole L.

Lauren was the best hands down!! So happy we could trust her all the way!! We were very happy to have run into her, be done [with the apartment search] in one day, and done in a week with all the paperwork. You are amazing Lauren! - Guillermo Z. and Wendy M.

Lauren helped my daughter find her first apartment in NYC. She is friendly, knowledgable, and very good about keeping in touch. She responded quickly to emails, texts, and phone calls and worked hard to find my daughter the perfect apartment in the price range and neighborhood that she was interested in. I really appreciated her accessibility and responsiveness. Lauren was very pleasant to work with and made the difficult task of finding an apartment in NYC much easier! I have already recommended her to a friend! - Janice H.

I recently closed on the perfect apartment for me and my girlfriend with the help of Lauren! I was transferring for work from an international location and I knew very little about the apartment market in NYC. Lauren was very patient, knowledgeable, open and honest about the real estate market in NYC. She was able to offer great suggestions for our budget and requirements that led to many showings, all which really gave me perspective on what was available. I really appreciated that Lauren was very flexible with my busy schedule, even when I changed requirements halfway through the process. Without Lauren I don’t think I would have found this apartment that fit all my needs, and more, right on budget. Thank you Lauren and Elegran for the great experience. I will be recommending you to all of my friends that want to look for apartments in the city! - Jim H.

My boyfriend and I recently worked with Lauren Schaffer to find our new apartment. From day 1, Lauren was organized, responsive, and understood what we were looking for right away. She was flexible in working around both of our schedules, and really went to bat for us when we found ourselves needing some muscle to move decisions along. For the first time in apartment hunting, it felt like we had a partner to navigate through an otherwise difficult and frustrating process. Lauren was overall friendly, helpful, and genuine - I hope to work with her every time we look for a place! - Natacha A.
