Loren blew me away. She came, organized my condo, and gave me a list of everything that had to be done. Within 2 weeks she had it show-ready, and it was under agreement within the first 4 days for an amount that was far greater than the list price. In the meantime, and equally as important, she explained the concept of a leaseback with me which would allow me to stay in the property after the sale to give me time to find my next place, which I thought was a great idea. When the offer came, she negotiated a lease back for 60 days at no cost to me! She really understands people in this position who are trying to sell their homes. I don't think another agent could have provided the same service.


We kissed a lot of frogs before we stumbled across Lara's keen insights in an article about the Medford real estate market in Boston Magazine. From our first meeting, we knew we found the right fit. Lara brings professionalism, data-driven decision making, thoughtfulness, an A+ team supporting her (stagers, photographers, etc), and handles any challenges that arise with ease. Her proactive communication and warm sense of humor make the stress of the selling process melt away. She provides a level of service that is rare to find in any field. In other words, she's a total BOSS in the best way possible. Any seller would be lucky to have her on their side. We accepted a great offer 12 days after listing!


This was my second real estate transaction with Company at Compass, and once again they came through for me in a challenging market made more challenging by the COVID-19 pandemic. I received excellent advice about the market and my (then) relatively uncertain situation during an initial consultation with Loren Larsen and Lara Shuqom, after which my home was expertly and creatively marketed and shown by Kevin Gehl. Through several ups and downs, Kevin provided sound advice and negotiated a fanstastic sale - the price and terms were ideal. I went into the sale confident and supported by a team of consummate professionals who were never more than a text of phone call away. Thank you, Company at Compass!

Her experience as a divorce attorney clearly gives her an advantage in these situations because she knows how to cut through the emotion and get the job done. I wasn't thrilled about the world knowing my business at the time, our Cambridge community was small. Loren did all the work required when you list on MLS but then she took 2 weeks to show it privately to agents. Loren then negotiated our deal and got them to pay a premium over our asking price. I moved out of state during the middle of the deal and never worried once. Loren and her team handled everything. During that chaotic time in my life, I could not have asked for a better outcome for our home. For anyone going through a divorce, Loren is the only option for selling the home. She is passionate about protecting her clients and getting the most for them. She also truly cares, and you can tell it when you meet her.

If you are looking for someone to make your home buying/selling experience as stress free and easy as possible, look no further! We had met Lara while she was selling our neighbors condo in Medford and then one year later we knew she would be the perfect fit to sell our condo in Somerville! Not only did she get us over our asking price, she made the process as smooth and easy as possible. We had a three week old daughter at this point so having her expertise and knowledge was so important since our time was limited! Lara handled everything with ease and was extremely responsive when we had any questions. If you are looking for an agent with expertise, poise and confidence, look no further than Lara Shuqom - we promise it will be one of the best decisions you ever make!


Kevin is an amazing real estate professional who understands the market and how to put together a competitive offer to secure the house or condo of your dreams.

Loren was a lifesaver and got me through one of the most challenging times of my life…She made navigating a variety of situations seamless. She communicated with my ex which allowed us to move more quickly on things and not have to negotiate or argue. She prepared a fully comprehensive list of everything that needed to be done before listing. She even helped me pack!!! When our house FLOODED right before we were supposed to list, Loren called in her contractor (who is amazing and helped with projects on my new place) who repaired the entire home, worked with the insurance adjusters, and brought the entire project in under budget, on time, including making sure there was enough in the budget to house me, my children and our dog while our floors got refinished. She sold the house like a dream with amazing offers and negotiated a leaseback allowing me and the kids to stay in the home for months after closing (basically resulting in rent-free housing for us, in our own home, for 3 months). She is my realtor, and now my very good friend, for life.

Lara is a boss. I was referred to Lara by a friend after working with another realtor who was intimidated by a bank owned property. Lara was not intimated and not only made the deal go through, but saved me 30k. Her entire team including lender, lawyer, and inspector have been absolutely a breeze to work with. As a first time home buyer, I needed a good amount of hand holding, and Lara was able to do that with me. I truly don't know how she does it all, but she makes it look easy. I am so grateful for working with Lara, and will be referring her to anyone interested in buying a home.


I moved from an awful situation to a great one all because of Kevin. I can’t recommend him enough and couldn’t be more pleased with my place. He made it fast, easy, got what I was looking for and even recommended a great moving service after I had a disaster of one a few months earlier. I recommend Kevin to everyone I know who are looking for a place.

Loren is a skilled and knowledgeable broker as well as a warm and caring person who totally understands all the issues surrounding the sale of a home. This was a difficult time for my wife and me. I don't think another broker without specific experience with divorcing couples could have gotten us through it with such a high degree of success. I'd consider Loren not only a huge asset but a friend for life. She was always there for us throughout the process, from checking in on our to-do lists to staging, pricing, negotiations, and closing. And patiently answering a million questions along the way.She is my realtor, and now my very good friend, for life."In addition to her guidance throughout the transaction, Lara has a wide-ranging network of trusted professionals whom she refers throughout the process. I was able to hire a mortgage lender, attorney, plumber, contractor, and painters all as recommendations through Lara. Lara is simply the best in the business, and you can be sure to have an outstanding experience with her in your corner. I can't wait to use her again in the future!
