Jennifer Kelley was born and raised in Fairfield County Connecticut and has resided in Newtown for over 25 years.

Currently, Jennifer serves as the Vice President for the Head O’Meadow Elementary School PTA. After having kids, Jennifer knew she wanted to spend more time with them while doing something she loved. That is where real estate came in. Working with new and old clients allows Jennifer to follow her passion and strive to provide an excellent client experience.

Lauren Auresto grew up in Brookfield and knew that she wanted to return to the area to raise her family and work. She now resides in Newtown, after falling in love with its small town charm, with her husband Stephen, son, and daughter. Having grown up one town over she is able to call upon an incredible network of people that are able to assist clients through the entire home buying process. Though she works with an array of clients from many walks of life, her greatest satisfaction is from working with first time homebuyers. She pays close attention to the needs and wants of buyers, and recognizes that purchasing a home is not a decision made in one day. Lauren takes pride on being aware of the market and clients’ needs so she can match them with the perfect home.

Lauren received her B.A. in Corporate Communications with minors in Business and Spanish from the University of Texas at Austin. She worked for several years in marketing and advertising, honing the skills that would one day assist in properly promoting homes to the right buyer. After several successful years in corporate America she jumped from the boardroom to the classroom and worked as a High School teacher after obtaining her Masters Degree. As a teacher she learned great patience while sharpening organizational and presentation skills.  Lauren recently expanded her real estate repertoire to include becoming a certified relocation agent as well as becoming certified to work with Navy Federal Credit Union and USAA buyers/sellers.
