I am a full-time realtor here in the Ocean City, Berlin area. I've been working in the real estate field specializing in marketing since 1999. I've been actively licensed since 2002, and received my associate broker's license in 2015. Most recently in 2022, I received my broker's license and am the broker of record for Keller Williams Realty of Delmarva in Ocean City, MD. I strive to maintain an open relationship with my clients, accepting feedback and marketing ideas willingly, as well as providing my customers with regular updates on the marketing initiatives being implemented and the status/feedback of showings. It is my goal to create a long-term relationship with you and your family. I look forward to partnering with you on the successful sale or purchase of your home.
Working with clients in real estate is a "get to know you" process, as well as a long-term commitment. In order to find the right home for my clients, I conduct an interview initially to find out their must-haves, their wants, and their dreams. The right house is going to be a mix of all three! Key to the whole process is establishing expectations and maintaining consistent communication. Clients can call me at any time with any question, no matter how trivial it may seem. My goal is to provide such a high level of service throughout the home buying or selling process, that my clients don't have to think twice about referring me to their friends and family!

Ocean City Today Real Estate Columnist
I am currently writing a weekly column for the local paper - Ocean City Today. The column covers the real estate market overall, and more importantly provides research and statistics on our local beach market. Informative articles provide homeowners with valuable information on homeownership covering such topics as homeowner's insurance, tips for sellers, and much more.

"Thank you so much for all of your hard work. We are so excited to move into the perfect house for us, and couldn't have done it without your guidance."
Megan and Brandon Cater
"My friend was right, you are the hardest working realtor, bar none. I honestly don't think that I would have gotten through this house selling process without you. You certainly have done yeomen duty on every aspect. All of your time, effort and patience with me is greatly appreciated. The house sold because of all of your effort and input."
"Lauren made first time homebuying extremely approachable, and took the time to educate me on everything involved in the process."
Amanda Hanke and Keri Swigert
"Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication that made this purchase possible. You advocate for your clients and I highly regard you for it. You made it possible for me and my family to achieve our goal of homeownership. Once again, thank you!"
"Thank you so much for the very wonderful, professional job you did with selling our property. You will always be special to me."
"We want to say a sincere "Thank You" for all you've done for us! We know at times the road seemed never ending. Thank you for always staying positive even through our ups and downs of this process. We appreciate all you do!"
Mike and Patty Locke
"Lauren's extensive knowledge of the local real estate market proved to be invaluable during the purchase of our first home. We were beyond impressed by her persistence, dedication and how easy she made each step of the home buying process! She continually followed up with all parties involved to ensure our best interests were being met."
Allison Shockley and Patrick Molloy
"Lauren is very easy to work with. She has helped me sell and buy homes in the area and has always been hard working and professional."
Jennifer K. Leggour
"We have just closed our third real estate transaction with Lauren Bunting from Keller Williams Realty of Delmarva. She is a person who stands by her word and follows-up impeccably on even the smallest details. Lauren went through tremendous lengths to look out for us every step of the way all the way to the very end. If you are in need of a real estate agent who will treat your transaction as if it were their own and provide you with nothing less than A+ service you will be in good hands with Lauren. Her professionalism and integrity are immediately noticed and respected by all who interact with her and many consider her an expert in the real estate industry. We consider her part of our family because of everything she has done for us and we would recommend her with the utmost highest regards."
Shireen and Mark Ambush
"We were referred to Lauren by a good friend, and we couldn’t have been placed in better hands. Lauren went above and beyond in every way, throughout the entire process. We were buying a home 400 miles away from our current residence, and we couldn’t have made many of the incredibly important decisions we had to make, without having a partner on the ground in Ocean City. She referred us to an inspector who was incredibly thorough, and many other reliable contractors. She guided us through every step of the Lengthy process, and provided us with expert knowledge and advice. We certainly would have been lost without her. I’ve worked with many other realtors over the years, and I can truly say that Lauren is the best of the best."
"Lauren Bunting was our realtor when we recently sold two homes- one in Maryland and the other one in Delaware. To say we were very satisfied with all she did for us is an understatement! She provided a level of expertise and professionalism that made us feel confident and at ease with the selling process. Additionally, Lauren was a delight to work with and that made our many interactions with her pleasant and productive. Lauren was always responsive and accessible to any questions we had. She has a unique ability to be honest and give helpful feedback while maintaining her positive personality."
