Lauren Gates

"Lauren is a great realtor- we have used her 3 times with each one being a great experience. We sold our house and closed within 3 weeks of listing. Very attentive and knowledgeable." - Kate C.

My primary area of expertise is the central Denver area, but I also service parts of the west metro area, including Wheat Ridge, Highlands, Edgewater, and Lakewood. I specialize in the Lower Highlands neighborhood in Highlands.

I spent my first 18 years in Southern New Hampshire. In 2004, I journeyed west and began studying at Montana State University where I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology. After six amazing years in Montana, I made the decision to move to Denver, drawn to a place where outdoor recreation was not at the cost of city life.

I currently live in the Lower Downtown of Denver, also known as LODO, where I enjoy the conveniences of an urban neighborhood. Walking distance from my choice of coffee shops, restaurants, and three professional sporting arenas, the LODO neighborhood is also in close proximity to the popular lower highlands and uptown neighborhoods.

My passion for helping others, my love for this city and my enthusiasm for interior design led me to a career in Real Estate. As both a Buyer's and Seller's Agent, I prioritize the needs of each client. I enjoy helping sellers prepare their homes to sell and guiding buyers through the process of finding and purchasing a new home. I am diligent, hard-working, caring and knowledgeable. Above all else, I am committed to making the home buying or selling process stress-free and enjoyable for each of my clients. As your realtor, I guarantee only the highest quality of service and expert knowledge of the Central Denver area to make your transition an incredible new beginning.


Lauren has helped us buy three properties and sell one property. She is great to work with. She is very professional and driven. She listened to our needs and showed us properties that fit those needs. She is super responsive to all our emails, texts and calls. We will definitely use her in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Lauren was great from start to finish. She expressed great concern over our needs as she took charge of the whole process. I could not see myself using another realtor in the Denver market. Truly a wonderful and knowledgeable person, Lauren is the ideal realtor.

Bought a for approximately $725Khome in 2019 singleFamily in Capitol Hill, Denver, CO 80218.

My wife and I were moving to Denver from the east coast so we needed a reliable and dedicated agent to help is with our search from afar. To make sure we found the right one, I interviewed several agents - asking questions about their sales, years experience, and parts of town they liked most. Many were upset by my requests, or couldn’t provide examples of experience in the areas we wanted to search. Not Lauren, she answered almost all of my questions up front without question, was energetic and excited about the possibility of working with us. We connected with Lauren right from the start both professionally and personally. She was not only experienced in the business, but also rents property in the area - something we are considering down the line as well. It was great to find such a knowledgeable cohort.
Our main objective was to find a house in a great location. Being somewhat familiar with the area through research and local family members, we identified several properties of priority via the shared MLS account Lauren set up for us. Lauren scheduled time to talk over the phone to get to know us and learn about what we were really looking for in a property.  This helped her give ongoing feedback against our selections, and also flag homes she thought we might like.  By the time we arrived in Denver for our weekend house hunting trip, we felt extremely comfortable that she was on the same page. 

Often it is assumed that all agents are out to get the sale, and the sale only.  This was NOT the case with Lauren.  She was extremely dedicated to our success in finding a home, but was not pushy in any way.  She was 100% on our side - pointing out both the awesome elements of a home but also the things we needed to look out for. It made for a much safer buying experience knowing she genuinely wanted us to find a perfect fit.
As mentioned above, from the first interaction, it was clear that Lauren was going to be our agent. She was incredibly responsive on all channels of communication (phone, email, even texting) and was enthusiastic about our trip to house hunt. During our visit, she spent the ENTIRE weekend with us - arranging showings of over 20 properties (some on the fly) and helping us keep them organized and prioritized. Lauren felt incredibly attentive the whole time, which we really appreciated, knowing she is a busy realtor with other customers. We were very impressed! 
Overall, we are so thankful to have found Lauren! She helped guide us through the whole process end-to-end with simplicity and ease. She helped us find an amazing first home, at managed us through price negotiations. Despite a number of challenges throughout closing, Lauren made the whole process feel easy. She was extremely patient, answering questions and offering support throughout the process. As we were not yet physically in Denver, she attended our inspection in our absence, and joined me for the walkthrough.  Not only that, but she also visited the home several times throughout closing to check on some of our ongoing questions. We often found ourselves often talking about how Lauren was the main reason we somehow maintained sanity during the closing process!  Lauren is not only great at what she does, but is also a really great person. If you are looking to buy a home in Denver, I cannot recommend Lauren more!
