Lauren Risley's private life has largely remained exactly that: private.
Considering the fact that Call the Closer is Lauren's first foray into the public eye, there is little available information regarding her personal life. According to her official website, Lauren "is on the constant hunt for the best pizza place," her favorite movie is Adventures in Babysitting, and she "loves dogs more than people."
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Lauren's interest in real estate manifested at a relatively young age. At just 19 she bought her first home, fixed it up, and sold it two years later. This then snowballed into Lauren buying several more properties and doing the same. But she still had another full-time career.
Lauren, who earned a business degree in college, initially worked in finance, but she knew that the corporate world wasn't for her. A few years later, she started posting the videos of her projects online. Her online presence caught the attention of a local production company who then took her videos to HGTV. She got the gig for Call the Closer, and the rest is history.
On Call the Closer, Lauren has proven herself to be a gracious host as well as an insightful real estate agent and home-reno expert who can help anyone get their hands on the home that they want.
Check out Lauren's hosting gig on Call the Closer airing Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on HGTV.
