the aborn story
When you take the time to get involved, you see how broken and hurting people are and how much help is needed,” says Lauren Prichard, owner and CEO of Aborn Powers, Inc., a full service real estate company. “The purpose of our company is to lift up the communities around us.” The firm lives by its mission, “To serve God and our communities by caring for those around us.”
Prichard was raised on real estate and worked with her father, a successful commercial broker and developer. She and her husband were foster parents for many children, so while she has been operating Aborn Powers for more than 20 years, she started expanding only five years ago, when the couple was done fostering. For the past two years, the firm has been on the Sacramento Business Journal’s list of the 50 fastest growing companies.
Prichard’s vision for Aborn Powers was to create a real estate company that provides an integrated solution, giving clients a single point of contact for all commercial, residential and property management services. “We can help you anywhere in your real estate journey, whether you’re starting with a house or already own a portfolio.”
Service and compassion are at the heart of Aborn Powers. Prichard has empowered each of the firm’s teams to support a charity, including the Boys & Girls Club El Dorado County Western Slope, New Beginnings Gold Country, Pregnancy Counseling Services, and Buckeye Elementary School in Shingle Springs. The support is not just financial, but hands-on as well. The company recently completed its third annual fundraising event, Freedom in the Fall, to support Agape International Missions in rescuing girls from sex trafficking.
Prichard’s goal is to continue to expand Aborn Powers, allowing it to be involved in more communities and bless more people. “We have the opportunity to really improve our communities. As businesspeople, we should strive to make a difference,” she say
