About Lauren Ponder

Hailing from Denver, Colorado, I moved to Charlotte after graduating from the Babcock School of Business at  Wake Forest University with degrees in both Finance and Art History. With a real estate attorney for a father and parents who are real estate investors, I have enjoyed ample and diverse exposure to the real estate markets since I was young. My passion for the business grew as I gained experience in other related fields like interior design, finance and marketing.


Joining Helen Adams Realty allows me to provide my clients with an unparalleled level of service and attention. I am receptive to every client’s unique home-related needs and approach each client’s circumstance with enthusiasm, creativity, forthright communication, diligence and integrity. Each of my transactions is executed according to the highest ethical standards and marked with distinct business professionalism, and I am consistently working to exceed each of my client’s expectations.

‐ Aaron Hewitt, Naples, Florida

Lauren, We appreciate all of your hard work. You handled our situation so gracefully and showed incredible professionalism. Working with new home buyers, from across the country, during a pandemic, and for six months would drive nearly anyone else mad. Yet, you made us feel comfortable and important during every interaction. You have gained life long customers! Looking... Read More

‐ Robert Dearing, Charlotte

The personal care Lauren gave our family was amazing. We would not have found our forever home if it wasn't for her caring, tenacity and sound advice. Lauren's ability to understand what was important to us and help us achieve that dream leaves little doubt in our minds that she is simply the best real estate agent in Charlotte.

‐ Mike & Rose, Charlotte

Lauren is a pleasure to work with. In her, you get the best! While possessing a delightful personality, I was particularly impressed with her communication skills, both written and verbal. When it comes to real estate, she is knowledgeable, professional and down-to-earth. But, most importantly, I trusted her to do a great job representing my interests. She delivered... Read More

‐ Julie Williams Charlotte NC

Lauren is our broker for life! She has handled several real estate transactions for our family and we have great respect for her. She is extremely professional and I really like the way she advises, but isn't pushy at all. You want to do what she recommends because she knows what she is talking about! We love her and will continue to use her going forward.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Lauren over the last 10 years to help manage our real estate in Charlotte.

Lauren was well organized, attentive, and very knowledgeable in every aspect of buying our home. We loved working with Lauren and would recommend her to anyone moving to the Charlotte area.

‐ Artise Stewart

We moved back to Charlotte with a very short timeframe to try to find a house. Lauren bent over backwards to find the perfect house for our family and was a tremendous help in getting us closed in the timeframe we needed! She is by far the best agent we have ever worked with!

Lauren came highly recommended to us and everything we were told was true. She was very patient and listened to all our needs. Being from out of town she stayed in touch with us and was available when we were in town. She showed us homes that fit our needs. Lauren walked us thru the entire process without any problems. We highly recommend Lauren and look forward to... Read More

‐ Bill & Peg Apriceno, Staten Island, NY

LP is knowledgeable about the market and made the negotiation process very easy when we got an offer on our home. This was the first house we've ever sold, and the whole process could have been much more intimidating if LP hadn't been a part of it! She came through our house and provided a detailed list of preparations for listing, was timely with photography, and later,... Read More

‐ Katie Hatcher, Charlotte

Thank you Lauren for helping us navigate a fierce market on such a demanding timeframe. You are so wonderful to work with and very good at what you do!

‐ Deese Family - Indian Trail

Lauren was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and handled every little detail that came through with care. In order to increase our chances of selling quickly and at a premium price, she provided us with not only recommendations on what to do to the property, but also quotes on what it would cost. She hired and managed the vendors and all of her ideas paid... Read More

‐ Kirsten and Chris Lingerfelt

Lauren is patient and knowledgeable, professional and a great resource. Thanks Lauren for help on both transactions.

‐ Edie Hubler, Charlotte

Lauren Dayton was the consummate professional during a several month search for the perfect home. We eventually found that home thanks to Lauren’s tireless work ethic and investment in learning our preferences, which changed markedly along the way. Insightful, intelligent, and sincere, we will certainly use Lauren time and again.

‐ Dan Shama and Yebin Lee, Plaza Midwood

We received a referral from my sister and brother in law who worked with Lauren on their house purchase. They spoke extremely highly of Lauren's local knowledge, professionalism, and her overall character as a person. They were spot on, and it was a pleasure working with her throughout our process. If there was a grade above excellent, I would certainly check that box! I... Read More

‐ Brian, Charlotte, NC

We knew Lauren was a Wake Forest graduate so had reason to trust her judgment and work ethic. Before contracting with her, we had had positive personal interactions with her on multiple occasions and found her to be smart, personable and trustworthy. She did an excellent job assisting us with selling our home and with the purchase of our new home. We would highly recommend her.

‐ Betty and Frank, Charlotte

I consider myself lucky to have worked with Lauren, whom my wife and I now consider a real friend. She delivered fully throughout the entire home-buying process, at every juncture (we closed on our house in Nov 2018). I will certainly utilize her services in any future real estate transaction that I’m involved with, and in the interim I will be recommending her to my... Read More

‐ Gordon Harris, Charlotte

I have used Lauren Dayton for two purchases and two sales. She has that rare combination of skills that are all so important for a realtor. She is knowledgeable of the market, a great communicator, highly organized, patient, friendly and uber competent with numbers and contracts. It is an absolute pleasure working with Lauren.

‐ Trish Bernard

I can't recommend Lauren and assistant Jessica enough! We had lots of issues in making this purchase happen. Lauren was there, positive, and helpful throughout the entire process making each difficulty as tolerable as possible. She is a consummate professional and I will not hesitate to call her again in the future!

‐ Greg Franklin, Denver, NC

Lauren Dayton was amazing throughout the process of selling our home. We feel so lucky to have found her. She was really knowledgeable about the process, quick to respond, and extremely helpful when last minute emergency repairs needed to be made before listing. We had a water heater burst the day before our home was going on the market, and she made sure we were able to... Read More

‐ Anna, Dilworth

My daughter recommended Lauren having used her services for their recent sale/next purchase. I know why she was so pleased! If there were a rating above excellent, that would be my choice. Lauren Dayton was my isle of calm in a purchase from afar. It had been a number of years since I’d had to go through the often stressful process of buying a home much less from a... Read More

‐ Deborah T, Raleigh

Loved Lauren Dayton from the very first call! Very easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable, guided us in the right direction! Her personality clicked with ours instantly, it was like we knew Lauren for years! We had some pretty bad experiences in the past but this was smooth sailing and we can't thank her enough! So grateful that she was referred to us!

‐ J. Aguilar

Lauren was always one step ahead during the closing process. Every time I would have a question, she already knew next steps or had the solution in place. Very responsive to my calls/text messages. Very easy to work with and understood my concerns/worries as a first time home buyer. Would ask for my input before making any of the final decisions and would offer different... Read More

‐ Matt Stoll, Charlotte

Being out of state, we knew we would need to rely heavily on any real estate agent. LP took on the extra duties and hassle of the situation without hesitation, even continuing to check on the vacant property after we closed. Her demeanor makes her extremely pleasant to work with, she is a prompt and effective communicator, diligent about responding to questions large and... Read More

‐ Danny Hardesty, Charlotte

Lauren was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was honest, knowledgeable and had very good instincts about the right way to sell the property - and that was very important as we were selling from out of town!

‐ Chris, NYC

Lauren was fantastic in helping us with our sale and purchase. She is very patient and thorough. We have recommended her to our daughters for their real estate needs!

‐ Mark Williams,0 Charlotte

Lauren is a very competent, professional agent whose experience and genuine care for her clients’ needs knows no bounds. Arguably the best agent we’ve ever worked with...ever!

‐ Julie Williams, Charlotte, NC

We bought our house with a very quick turnaround with some trepidation as we were putting an offer in before selling our current home. Lauren assured us throughout we were in a good spot and we trusted her (lucky for us!). It was a whirlwind to complete all the moving parts but she was always reachable and made sure we were on the right track the entire time. We don't... Read More

‐ Jimmy, Charlotte, NC

Lauren Dayton is literally the best realtor you could ask for. She handles everything smoothly and is full of knowledge you may need along the home buying process.

‐ MacLean

Lauren Dayton made an immediate impression on me upon meeting. She was professional, knowledgeable, confident, and personable - and I knew instantly that she was *the* broker for me. She listed and sold my home quickly and seamlessly - and coordinated, managed, and communicated everything along the way. Truly! I think the only finger I lifted in the entire process was to... Read More

‐ Jill, NYC

LP was extremely professional and knowledgeable during the purchase of our new home. She went above and beyond to keep us well informed in each step of the buying process and helped us close on our forever house! I will absolutely recommend her to anyone I know in the market for a new home.

‐ Anna Holtgrewe, Charlotte

Lauren was very thorough and transparent during what could have been a very confusing and muddy process. I am convinced that the only reason we currently own our dream home was because she was involved in the process. We love working with Lauren and would never consider working with a different agent. I have recommended her to all of my friends and even to strangers who... Read More

‐ Laura, Charlotte, NC

We have purchased three houses and sold two so far with LP. If you choose any other realtor in Charlotte, I question your sanity.

‐ Denny Fulk & Charlotte, NC

Lauren was outstanding. I have no doubt that our home would have sold for less or would have sat on the market longer if it weren't for her! We are also using her to purchase our new home. Somehow she talked the owner of our dream home into taking our offer despite it being the lowest one! She's the best in Charlotte!

‐ Laura, Matthews,NC

We were really lucky to have the opportunity to work with Lauren. She was referred to us by another broker at Helen Adams who was unable to represent us in our transaction. She was a great partner throughout the buying process. From the point we decided to make an offer and beyond closing, we always felt prepared and supported. She was knowledgeable and attentive while... Read More

‐ Erik, Boston, MA

Lauren is a GEM! She guides the decision making process just enough so we are informed, but wasn't pushy in the least. Her pleasant disposition makes her an excellent choice!

‐ Paula Conway, Charlotte

Lauren is an outstanding realtor and I have already recommended her to several people

‐ Ritika Prasad

Lauren is great! Highly recommend!

‐ Cindy Moeller

We have worked with 13 real estate agents through out the years. Lauren Dayton is by far the best agent out of the group. You will never meet a finer quality person or agent!

‐ Kim Shaw Charlotte NC

Lauren, As first time home buyers, thank you so much for making this experience easy for us. You helped us along the way, even though it was a long one, and made sure we were satisfied until the end. We truly appreciated your time and hard work. Thanks!

‐ Ayesha Ekram, Mirabella Huntersville

Lauren was extremely helpful in navigating a complex and intricate real estate transaction. She was well-connected to contractors and inspectors who aided in providing us the information we needed throughout the process. Her knowledge of the process from start to finish allowed me to feel at ease during a complicated process. Regardless of your specific situation, I would... Read More

‐ Tomis Parker, Charlotte NC

Lauren managed to get a great understanding of my and my Husband's very different styles and priorities. She's been very patient in that regard as well as friendly and professional at every turn.

‐ Liz

Lauren Ponder Dayton is the consummate professional. This was our 13th purchase and she was by far the best realtor.

We love LP. She has sold 2 properties for us and helped us buy 1. Thorough, informed, professional, accessible, very effective.

Lauren did an amazing job in a very challenging real estate environment. Living so far away, we could not have done it without her.

Lauren is outstanding. She takes the time to get to know her clients and understands their needs, wants, and concerns and delivers above and beyond expectations. I would only use Lauren on any future real estate transactions.

Lauren was terrific in every way. She was a joy to work with. She represents Helen Adams at the highest professional level. We have purchased 10 properties in the past 40 years. Lauren is by far the best realotor we've worked with.

Lauren Ponder Dayton recently worked with my wife and I to purchase our first home. We could not have been any happier with our experience with Lauren. She provided great insight into the process and market, which was especially helpful since we are new to Charlotte and were not living here during our search. We plan to recommend Lauren to our friends and will 100% use... Read More

‐ Jeff Mullen

This was a fairly complicated process due to doing a 1031 Exchange and purchases were done through a trust. The most difficult part was the communication with the underwriter of the mortgage. Lauren did more than her job requires by helping with the communication and managing to get all parties involved on the same page. It was a stressful process but she was professional... Read More

‐ Rosemary Barber

Lauren and Angela really care about their clients.

LP is the consummate professional in her business. I have referred many people to her and will continue to do so. You guys are fortunate to have someone like her.

Lauren was exceptionally prepared to handle the sale of our home. She provided superb service and was extremely helpful in guiding us through the sale of our home. We will recommend Lauren whenever we are given the opportunity.

Lauren Ponder is excellent and displays the highest standards of professionalism.

LP and Angela are awesome! They are both so knowledgeable, and LP's expertise extended far beyond just real estate--she could tell me what might need to be fixed or changed and approximately how much it would cost for every home we looked at. I have already recommended her to other people and will happily use her when we decide to sell our home in the future!

‐ Paul & Katie Hatcher

LP is an asset to the real estate business.

Lauren Dayton was wonderful to work with in the recent purchase of my house in Charlotte. She and her assistant, Angela, were incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and insightful. I could not have asked for a better team.
