Lauren Chorey


lauren-chorey_realtorHi, I am Lauren Chorey. While I grew up in Atlanta, GA, I attended college at the University of Virginia, so Charlottesville has always had a long-standing special place in my heart. I love working in such an amazing place with so much to do and so many opportunities.

I’ve had a passion for real estate since I was 12 years old (if that) and thankful that I was able to direct my passion into a long-term career!

In 2010, I became a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser and finally a licensed Realtor in 2011 with extended experience working with buyers and sellers during that time.

My experience as a residential real estate appraiser, allows me to bring a strong knowledge of valuation, construction techniques and materials, and an overall high-level of comfort researching and inspecting properties to the table for all buyer.

I look forward to going to work each day and getting to serve my clients so that they are able to achieve their real estate goals and dreams. I enjoy doing the research to help them find the best possible home, whether it’s the first home we look at a home or a home that we found a year after we started working together. Being able to see a buyer’s face light up and hearing them imagine a property as their own home is such a rewarding part of my job. I have considerable experience with helping buyers through the entire real estate process from contract to closing, which can sometimes be intimidating and unpredictable.

I am extremely fortunate to have developed a love of homes and for the real estate industry very early on and to have been able to have a career in something I’m excited about and enjoy greatly. I am grateful for my clients, their trust and the opportunity to serve them in an area I am so passionate about!


A Few of My Favorite Things

  • A Perfect Saturday
    Going hiking with my husband, son, and dogs, followed by lunch and drinks at Blue Mountain Brewery, then ending up with some pool time at the Frys Spring Beach Club.
  • My Favorite Place to Travel
    It’s not very exotic, but I love going to my parents house at Lake Burton in North Georgia. So many great memories and it’s been fun continuing to make memories that my siblings and I are now grown up and bring our spouses and kids there too!
  • My Favorite Team
    UVA of course! I’m living and working in the perfect place! Go Hoos!!
  • My Favorite Pets
    We have two Welsh terriers, Jefferson and Brooks. They have great personalities, are very high energy, and keep things interesting and fun around the house!

  • “My husband and I were on the hunt for our first house and had a wonderful experience working with Lauren and Avenue Realty. She was willing to accommodate our busy schedules to view potential homes, answered all of our questions, and was friendly and easy to work with! Although buying our first home was a sometimes daunting and tedious process, working with Lauren helped make things easier and more enjoyable.” – Molly and Evan Campbell

Stasia was very professional and friendly during our home buying experience. She helped us find houses to look at that met our requirements and was able to fill us in on information that we were not familiar with as first time home buyers.

Darian was there every step of the way to help us along! Even after we found the right home, Darian helped us through the actual purchase, mortgage application, home inspection, and closing. He always had extremely useful advice, encouragement, and endless knowledge about buying and owning a home.

Melissa is an outstanding real estate agent and a joy to work with. She took the time to understand our needs in a new home, worked tirelessly running down leads, and has stayed upbeat and positive during a difficult search. We not only consider her as our real estate agent, but a friend. Our experience has been so positive that we absolutely plan on working with Melissa in the future.

It was truly a pleasure to work with Amy. Not only is she knowledgeable and responsive, but she is patient and takes the time to explain the process of selling a home and makes you feel comfortable with what can be a very complicated process. Amy truly made the process easy for us and sold our property in a week.
