Meet Lauren Schachtel, Real Estate Agent, Coldwell Banker Realty, New Jersey/New York


Lauren Schachtel, Real Estate Agent, Certified Divorce Real Estate Specialist


I am so excited to welcome Coldwell Banker real estate agent and Certified Divorce Real Estate Specialist, Lauren Schachtel to the DGS team! Lauren is a divorced mom of two, whose background is amazing! She told me she was inspired to become a real estate agent by the real estate agent who helped her sell her home during her divorce.

Lauren’s energy is truly wonderful! Her past work experience (which includes jobs at Donna Karan and Calvin Klein in NYC, how cool is that?!) combined with her passion and dedication to helping men and women sell and/or buy a home during divorce is invigorating! Welcome, Lauren!
