As a 3rd generation new home builder and founder of Grace & Nell Homes, Lauren provides a unique mix of real estate and new construction expertise for her clients. Her passion is to provide an unmatched real estate experience across the spectrum of possibilities: selling, building new, remodeling, or finding a turn-key home.
Prior to starting Grace & Nell Homes and partnering with the Malfer & Associates team, I served as Chief Operating Officer for one of Kansas City’s largest home builders overseeing the development and sales for multiple communities. My career journey also includes time in healthcare IT leading large scale clinical and technical teams as a Client Partner working with C-Suite and other client executives to identify cutting edge technology solutions for multi-billion-dollar enterprises.
My husband, Peter, and our two kids are very proud to call Kansas City home.

“Kristin and her team were extremely responsive and caring in every detail of the sales process. In a tough market, they were able to guide us in making solid decisions that resulted in the sale of the home. It was a great experience!”
My wife and I worked With Lauren Browne to find our new house. She went above and beyond to make our buying experience smooth and simple. My wife and I currently live in California but were looking to buy a place in Prairie Village. Lauren coordinated everything we needed remotely and even did virtual walk- throughs to save us time and give peace of mind. We are so thankful we had Lauren for this process and will be using her again if we make another move.
"Kristin Malfer and her staff were always on the ball when it came to closing on my property. Since I had already moved to the West Coast, I needed someone who could handle the entire process for me. They moved quickly when it came to appraisals, inspections, repairs and closing the sale.”
