Lauren Traficanto

Real Estate Broker

With over 15 years of experience in Chicago’s residential real estate market, I have witnessed numerous neighborhoods grow and transform. I have helped countless families buy and sell their starter homes, forever homes, and everything in between. What sets me apart from other brokers is my genuine concern for my clients’ well-being. I understand that purchasing a home is a major financial decision, and I strive to make the buying and selling experience as seamless as possible for my clients.

I am proud to say that the majority of my business comes from repeat clients and referrals. It’s an honor to work with the same clients multiple times and see their lives evolve over the years. My focus is on Chicago and all of its unique neighborhoods. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or looking for a multi-family unit, I work with all types of buyers and sellers. I also specialize in getting homes ready to hit the market, from repairs to staging, to ensure my clients get top dollar.

What truly sets me apart is my personalized approach. I don’t see my clients as numbers or statistics; I understand the significance of purchasing a home and the impact it can have on someone’s life. While I work for a large company, I am the face of my business, and I strive to give 100% to every client, whether they’re renting, buying, or selling. I look out for their best interests, so they have the knowledge and tools to make the best investment they can with what they have.

As someone who has lived and worked in Chicago since 2005, I can honestly say that I love this world class city and feel fortunate to live and work here.


Presentation matters. It’s been proven that staged homes sell faster and for more money. It’s why I include my staging services free of charge for every client who lists their home with me.

Knowing how to attract attention to your property in today’s market is the key to making sure you get the most for your home. With more eyes on your home, the more buyers that follow. With my background in design and access to world-class marketing tools, I am able to attract buyers from all over the globe to get you top dollar for your home.

I had the pleasure of working with Lauren to sell my home. She was always prepared, and efficient. She had valuable suggestions on small cosmetic changes I could make to maximize the offers we would get. We had multiple offers, and a smooth closing. I have since recommended her to friends!
