Meet Lauren Thomson


Our experience with Lauren was fantastic. At the time, we were first-time homebuyers with many questions and concerns. She clarified the entire purchasing process for us and put our minds at ease which made us feel confident moving forward with purchasing our condo. When the time comes again to look for another home, we will be ecstatic to work with Lauren. – Jaron J.



My favorite neighborhood is Logan Square because it’s absolutely packed with fun things to do, but low-key enough that you don’t always have to worry about making a reservation ahead of time. Plus there’s lots of green space to sit outside and enjoy nature a bit, which is necessary as you start to move away from the lake!



First of all, DRC is full of passionate, creative brokers that work hard and take pride in providing the best possible service to their clients, and our leadership is just the best. Also, a lot of brokerages focus more on sales, but I love the way DRC places equal emphasis on helping renters. Renting is usually a person’s first choice when they move to a new city, and their first apartment can have a huge impact on the initial impression they form of the city as a whole. Loving Chicago as much as I do, I want everyone else to love it too! So with all of its very different neighborhoods and cultures, I feel very rewarded when I can help newcomers find their perfect neighborhood with lots of great coffee or a good bar scene, or places to enjoy nature or music or shopping or quiet–whatever it is that makes them feel most at home. Because that’s what real estate is about for me, making people feel at home.



My two favorite cities in the world are Chicago and Paris! For now, Chicago just barely has my heart, but if Aya and Publican stop baking bread for us, I might have to move. For a personalized Paris vacation itinerary, I’m your gal!
