Lauren Thompson

Sales Associate & Branding Director


Lauren Thompson joined Corcoran Global Living in June of 2015 with a background in mortgage lending and marketing. She served an invaluable role on our team as Corcoran Global Living’ Marketing Director, leading the company’s branding initiatives as well as providing critical marketing support to the team by executing targeted marketing campaigns for each property listing. Recently, she decided to take advantage of her experience and focus her time on working with clients “in the field” as a sales associate. 

However, Lauren prefers the term “real estate advocate” over “real estate agent”. 

“For me, it’s never about sales. It’s about guiding my clients through one of the most significant, complicated, and often emotional transactions they will ever partake in. I am grateful for Corcoran Global Living’s collaborative culture for thoroughly supporting me in the important role of advocating for my clients.”

Born and raised in Burlingame, Lauren graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a bachelor’s degree in Communication. She relocated from Burlingame to Santa Rosa in 2008, and “has never looked back.” She adores Sonoma County for its natural beauty, abundant farm to table dining, regional parks, friendly people, palpable sense of community, and of course the world renowned wineries.

“Sonoma County is such a great place to live! It’s absolutely beautiful, the quality of life is unmatched, and we enjoy more affordability than our bay area neighbors to the south. I love showing Bay Area clients what Sonoma County has to offer!”

Lauren is passionate about her community, and appreciates her role in local real estate for the opportunities it gives her to be a part of the fabric of where she lives. She served as event chair for John B. Riebli Elementary School PTA and raised thousands of dollars with the annual dinner dance, served on the Santa Rosa Mother’s Club Board, the Christ Methodist Preschool board, was the donations chair for Mark West Education Foundation, volunteered as “Team Mom” for her son’s little league team. She also spends time volunteering with Social Advocates for Youth and Habitat for Humanity, and most recently, she has stepped up as COPE organizer for her Mark West Estate neighborhood in Northeast Santa Rosa. 

In her spare time, Lauren loves spending time with family and friends, hiking, cooking, wine tasting, and decorating their newly re-built Santa Rosa home.

Client Experience

It was such a great experience working with Lauren on the sale of our home. She brought so many wonderful ideas to the table to help us prepare for listing, and I have no doubt this contributed to the quality of the offers we received. We ended up accepting an offer that was above our asking price. Thank you so much, Lauren! Kelly C.
Lauren is absolutely incredible. Although the idea of selling my dad's home seemed overwhelming and emotional at first, Lauren made the entire process of selling my dad's home painless. She held our hands through ever step of the way and was patient, helpful, and offered thoughtful solutions. One example of Lauren's ingenuity- my dad did not want to stage his home, so Lauren was able to work with what furniture he had, and did a "light staging". The end result was beautiful, the home and property showed well, and the quick sale proved it! I would absolutely recommend Lauren and Corcoran Global Living again and again! Maureen B.
My husband and I had a very positive experience with Lauren and Laura - both in the sale of our previous home, and the search for & purchase of our new home. Lauren & Laura remained calm and confident through all of the bumps (covid-19) we encountered along the way, and in turn we stayed positive through the entire process. I would definitely recommend Lauren and Laura to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Marleigh S.
Lauren was wonderful to work with. She is extremely professional but also very personable. She helped our family sell our parents' home, and it was an emotional experience. She was very empathetic to our needs and her professionalism got us to the finish line. Her ideas for making the house appeal to a broader customer base were helpful and allowed us to get the price we were asking. She is very good at her job, and anyone who has the opportunity to choose her as their agent will be making a very strong choice. Sharon S.
