Lauri Schroeder

Lauri Schroeder



Lauri Schroeder grew up in Andrews, a small west Texas town where the folks were famously friendly, had a crazy work ethic, and where excellence was the norm. That's how her mother built the most successful real estate brokerage in town. It's also how Lauri got baptized into real estate at a young age, and how she engages in her own business to this day!

After graduating from Texas Tech, Lauri taught students at risk and with special needs throughout Texas for ten years. Then, she obtained her master's from SWT in San Marcos and became an award-winning administrator – where she spent over 25 years leading and passionately advocating (up to the state level) for her students, staff, and families.

As a real estate agent, Lauri's goal is to provide each client with the knowledge and resources they need to have an awesome experience. She is keenly aware of how valuable effective, open communication is - so she listens and truly "hears" what her clients say. She utilizes her background in data analysis, creative negotiation, and strategic planning to keep all participants well-educated and informed throughout the process. The relationships and access she has to invaluable industry partners provide assurance that her clients are well-advised and confident when it's decision-making time. On a lighter side, she "keeps the main things the main things," ensuring that everyone puts things in proper perspective and has plenty of fun along the way!

Lauri raised her two daughters in New Braunfels and has lived in Austin for the past several years. She has an expansive knowledge of not only Austin, but also many surrounding areas - with memberships in multiple REALTOR® boards and MLS services. Her maximum access to properties throughout Central Texas allows her to help clients sell, buy, invest, and lease properties everywhere from as far north as Leander to the southern suburbs of San Antonio.

Lauri loves playing golf, snow skiing, and being on the lake with friends. Much of her weekly exercise comes from country/western dancing and doing goat yoga (minus the goats!) She's a bit of a "dumpster diva" and gets a kick out of matching her finds with those in need. Involved in a variety of ways in her community, she especially looks forward to her Mobile Loaves and Fishes truck runs with her church team. She enjoys scouting out unique eateries, attending live music, and going on day trips to nearby memory-makers. (Ask her for a list of her favorite culinary and activity hot spots, and she'll send you on a scavenger hunt you'll never forget!) It can't go without saying that her absolute favorite thing to do is spend time with her family and loved ones - especially her two very special grandsons, Coalter and Kasen!

Lauri has helped my entire family with their real estate needs, including my brother and niece. Her dedication and willingness to do whatever is needed for her clients is admirable, as is her knowledge of the many communities that make up Austin, and the surrounding areas.

As a mortgage banker, I really appreciate her clients always being well informed, and ready to action. Lauri always spends the valuable time it takes to make sure her clients are well educated about the entire home buying process, including the financing.

I never think twice about referring clients interested in homeownership to Lauri.

Lauri was nothing short of incredible during our entire time searching for a home. We dealt with many, many odd cases of things she'd never seen before, and even then, she was on the ball, professional, and communicative. Lauri helped us to find a house in less than a month, and she was just as quick to act as we were. We'd recommend Lauri to just about anybody and look forward to enlisting her services again when we buy our next house. You won't find a better realtor than Lauri

Working with Lauri was a very unexpected experience. My husband and I were planning for a major life change and moving cross-country when we connected with Lauri and explained our situation and needs. We were both prepared for a very stressful, drawn-out, and frustrating experience. Instead, we received the kind of one on one attention that makes you feel like family. Lauri answered every question, comment, concern with knowledge, and insight. She went to bat for us several times with sellers, schedulers, brokers. She honored our time and our inexperience as first-time home buyers and made sure that we were ready at each step of the process. If Lauri can take this kind of time and care for people who are half-way across the country, just imagine the support you can receive when you're in her own backyard!

Lauri is an absolute delight to work with! From the moment we told her we might be looking to move, to the moment we signed the lease to our new house, she was supportive, encouraging, and had a "never-give-up attitude." Lauri helped us through the search process and took us on tours of several homes. Once we found "the one," Lauri helped make a connection with our landlord and set the stage for our application in a highly competitive market. We had previously been discouraged after losing several houses to other applicants, but Lauri brought us new hope when we started working with her. Lauri cares for every one of her clients and is passionate about getting things done and done right. Lauri is insightful, professional, and intuitive about clients' wants and needs and is persistent in finding a house with the perfect fit. She found the perfect one for our family!!! Lauri prayed with us, and God put all the pieces into place.
Thank you, Lauri! We will always be grateful!!!

We were trying to buy a house AND get married in the same month! Crazy, I know, but with the help from Lauri, it made it such a pleasant experience. Hearing horror stories from other homeowners, we were ready for the long haul! It turns out, we were worried for nothing!! I am so thankful we had Lauri on our team as she was so knowledgeable and helped guide us during the home buying process. She was so caring and professional as we searched house to house - never getting frustrated with us being picky first time home buyers. Instead, she listened to us, encouraged us, and taught us that we would know when we find the "RIGHT" house for us! With Lauri, I didn't feel like just another paycheck for her - she was genuine and truly wanted the best for my husband and I. I couldn't be more appreciative of her kindness and the service she provided. 10 out of 10 would recommend. If you want purchasing a house to be a memory and experience that you won't forget for all the RIGHT reasons, go with Lauri, and you will not regret it! Thanks again, Lauri - we are forever grateful for you!

Working with Lauri was an AMAZING experience! She really went above and beyond when it came to making sure we were comfortable with every decision. If she didn’t have the answer, she found someone for us to talk with that did. We originally met with Lauri THREE YEARS before we actually decided to make our purchase!! We were first time home buyers and didn’t know where to begin. Lauri was so patient with us when we decided it just wasn’t time, but as soon as we were ready, she was there ready to pick up where we left off. The entire experience felt so comfortable and familiar as if we were talking and working with a close friend. I literally recommend Lauri to so many people I meet!!! We are only hopeful that if we ever decide to buy again or even sell, that Lauri will be there to hold our hand once again!!

Lauri was such a pleasure to have as my real estate agent. She offers great advice, never leaves a question unanswered, and always responds promptly. Lauri’s experience shines through when she thinks of questions and answers that never cross my mind but should have. She had a clear picture of what I was looking for, uncovered an area that I didn’t know existed, and guided me through each step to closing.  Lauri is the first person I think of when someone mentions selling, buying, or renting. She is the greatest!

Lauri Schroeder was extremely helpful to me throughout the house hunting/buying process. I was a first time home buyer, so she had her work cut out for her. Lauri sat me down and gave me a great orientation, as well as continued to educate me the whole time. She listened to what I was interested in and did her homework. In some cases, she knew what I wanted (or didn’t want) even before I did! Lauri was a great communicator who always made herself available every step of the way. She even went out of her way to meet other members of my family

Lauri was a breeze to work with and made the entire home-buying process easy and fun. We appreciated her direct approach telling us exactly why she did or did not think certain houses would be a good fit or a good investment. Every house she found for us was a good fit, and she was very receptive to our feedback. Our escrow went very smoothly, and she walked us through all our options at each step. I can't wait until we are ready to move so we can work with her again!

This note is to share with you how special my experience was with Lauri in selling my house in Bastrop, Texas. It was my first time to sell a house, and I was more than just a bit nervous. Her expert advice on what I should do to get the house ready was very much appreciated. It helped me get the best price for the property without spending too much on the touch-ups. It was a very stressful time with my mother dying, and Lauri's calm approach and patience helped me beyond words. She is my first thought when thinking of buying or selling a home. I feel like I had more than just a great Realtor experience, but someone I could call a friend

Lauri Schroeder was the agent we worked with when we moved to Texas in April of 2016. Since we were still living over a thousand miles away, Lauri was able to work around our schedules and help us find the perfect home in the perfect area. Lauri turned what was a stressful time in our lives into a very fun and positive experience. We would highly recommend working with Lauri;  in fact, we have already referred her to three couples who have had the pleasure of working with Lauri
