After almost 20 years of door-knocking, Lauri Strain isn’t surprised by much. That all changed when she knocked on one woman’s door. The events that followed were the most pleasant surprises imaginable!

The History

It all started one day with Lauri door-knocking in a neighborhood. A sweet woman answered the door, and although she wasn’t interested in selling, her daughter and son-in-law might be.

So Lauri reached out to the couple, and they weren’t ready to sell. Then the son called back, “Wait! My mother might be ready to sell.” And as it turns out, she was.

So Team Attune prepared to sell this charming home on historic Park St., a hidden gem in the heart of downtown Paso Robles, just minutes away from local restaurants, shops, the fairgrounds, and the new Paso Market Walk.

With its incredible location and unique original features, like redwood siding, this home was one of a kind! It just needed a little love to bring it back to life.

The Challenge

That’s when surprise number two happened! The home desperately needed proper staging and, on short notice – introducing Summer Strain, Lauri’s daughter, and Attune’s new home design specialist.

In just one day, Summer instantly transformed the space and let the home’s inherent charm shine through.

After the staging, inspections, professional photography, and marketing plans, Team Attune was ready to sell Park St.

The Success

After a fantastic team effort and multiple offers, Park St sold in just six days and over asking.

It was such a joy to work with the seller, her family, Lauri’s daughter, and everyone else who helped close this deal.

If we’ve learned anything, it’s that you never know which door will lead to the right deal!

Sometimes the best leads require years of nurturing. That was certainly the case with this off-market deal in Atascadero!

The History

After five years of Lauri Strain checking in, the owners finally reached out and asked for her expertise to price their home. 

Even though they were interested in selling, they weren’t ready for the pressures of putting their home on the open market. 

An off-market sale was no problem for Strain, and she was up for the challenge!

The Challenge

Sometimes things don’t always work out on the first try, but the outcome could be better than imagined. 

After the owners agreed to sell, Strain immediately went to work sharing the property with her network of buyers. And one of them even wrote an all-cash offer, sight-unseen! 

Unfortunately, that buyer pulled out of escrow, but luckily, another Team Attune member stepped up to the plate.

The Success

As soon as the property became available again, Stella Dudley quickly submitted an offer on behalf of her buyer. 

Even better? The second offer was higher than the first! 

The sellers and buyers are thrilled with the results of this off-market sale. Meanwhile, Strain and Dudley are celebrating their first team Attune deal! 

Our agents are thankful to be a part of a supportive team environment. They will always work together to get the deal done for their clients.
