Meet Lauren

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.
