We're Sara & Lauren, the heart and soul of SKLD.

Sara Kruse and Lauren Duke - your guides through the wilds of the real estate biz - are the brains behind SKLD. With a shared history of 7 years in the trenches of real estate, they've seen it all, done it all, and have the scars (and the stories!) to prove it. Sales, operations, client experience, the adrenaline rush of recruiting and training, and even the thrill of launching 20+ expansion locations - they've been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and returned it when it didn't fit anymore!)

They've helped over 3000 transactions reach the finish line and have brought more than 150 real estate agents into the fold. So, when they say they're your reliable partners in real estate operations, they've got the real-world experience to back it up.
