Who is Lauren Brito?

Lauren is originally from Southern California and has been a resident of Orange County for over a decade. Prior to entering the real estate sector, she co-owned and operated a family-owned firm in the Los Angeles suburbs. Lauren's experience running her own business appears to have helped her develop key attributes required of a successful real estate agent. She worked as a real estate agent with First Team Real Estate from May to July 2017 before becoming a realtor at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. She stayed with her second employer from August 2017 to July 2021 before moving on to the next opportunity. Since June 2021, the California native has been a part of The Oppenheim Group, where she has demonstrated her skills as a Realtor Associate on several occasions.

Lauren's presence on 'Selling the OC' Season 1 was brief; she mostly spoke and had meals with Brandi Marshall, with whom she appears to be close. The California native became a sympathetic ear for her good friend and coworker, who appeared to be dealing with a variety of challenges. Lauren's presence on the show, however, pleased viewers, whether she was merely talking to someone or displaying a stunning real estate prospect.

Lauren is now married to Andrew T Shortt, a Real Estate Advisor with Mason|Taylor Associates in collaboration with Compass. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, grew up in Pennsylvania, and relocated to California in 2002 to pursue a career in real estate. Andrew has created a reputation for himself as a realtor in Orange County. He and Lauren got engaged around Christmas 2020, and she delighted in informing her followers. The happy pair married on June 25, 2022, in Carlsbad, California. Lauren and Andrew honeymooned in Bali, Indonesia, and they will presumably celebrate their sixth anniversary as a couple in October 2022. The latter did not participate in the first season of 'Selling the OC,' but we are hopeful that he will feature in future seasons of the reality show. They currently reside in Newport Beach, California, with Lauren's gorgeous puppy, Gunner, whom she seems to adore.
