Ratings & Reviews

Lori was recommended to us from a friend, and she assisted our family with the sale of our existing home and the purchase of a new one. Lori showed us many homes that provided us with a keen oversight of the market which in turn, helped us to further establish our wants and desires for our new house. Lori helped us prep our existing home for sale which seemed daunting; however, in the long run, these improvements made our home stand-out from the crowd and and our house was sold over the asking price. Lori did an excellent job managing the purchase of our new house which included some challenges due to the sellers being out of state. Lori was extremely patient with us and provide us with excellent, sound guidance. Lori has become a friend to our family and we would highly recommend her services!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Chico, CA.

Lori was extremely helpful to me regarding the sale of my mother's house. She made practical and pivotal recommendations that resulted in a very timely sale, at an acceptable price even as we were conducting improvements, the sale and closing from different states. Thank you, Lori

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Chico, CA.

Working with Lori to buy our home was fantastic! My wife and I spent two days looking at houses with her, and while we were looking, my wife and I realized that what we had asked for wasn't really what we wanted, and Lori seemlessly switched gears and started showing us houses that were in line with our true dream home. We quickly decided on a house and Lori helped us through the whole purchasing process. Being out of state made the process more challenging, but Lori was right there for us the whole way through, attending inspections, and negotiating with the seller. She also helped us through some financing and timing challenges. We were in very good hands. She has kept in contact with us since moving in, and when my wife mentioned that the home warrantee people didn't treat us fairly when the furnace quit, Lori negotiated with them and got us fair compensation. I highly recommend Lori Akers!

We appreciate Lori's availability and how she adapted our house hunt as we got to know the Chico market. She was very patient with our questions and came back to us with detailed answers.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Chico, CA.

Lori really knows the area and the market. I was an out of town buyer and she worked with me to keep me informed and find properties for me to look at. She even went to houses and took more pictures so I could get a better view of the house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Chico, CA.

Lori Akers is wonderful to work with. Searching for our ideal home was so enjoyable. She listened to our needs and dreams, then showed us homes that indicated that she clearly listened and respected our desires. She is incredibly personable. I was excited to hear from her each and every time she called. When the time came to negotiate and secure a contract, her veteran expertise really shined. She is incredibly knowledgeable and was not afraid to advocate for our family. She has been my agent for the sale and purchase of two homes. I recommend her to everyone looking. You'd be lucky to have her as your agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Chico, CA.

We recently purchased our first home with the assistance of Lori. She made the experience effortless. She was able to take the list we gave her and show us several properties that fit. She also helped us to see the positives and negatives of each property we viewed. She always got back to us promptly and made us feel like we were her only clients. She never made us feel like any of our questions were annoying or small (no matter how many times we had asked the same thing). Working with Lori was fantastic and we would definitely recommend her to anyone!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Chico, CA.

Lori worked with us for the better part of a year. She remained positive and supported us through several losses we experienced trying to buy short sales. Lori understands the market and supports her clients best interest. She is extremely professional and dilligent. I was able to reach her through multiple channels and she responded quickly when we were interested in a new property on the market. I am very happy to be in my dream home now and am so grateful to Lori for her help and guidance every step of the way. I wholeheartedly recommend anyone new to homebuying to give her a call. I will certainly call her if I ever decide to sell my home.

Sold a home in 2012 in Oroville, CA 95969.

It has been such a privelege working with Lori on the sale of my home and in finding a new home to purchase. She has infinite patience, is extremely knowledgeable, and she has all of her facts and is such a pleasure to work with. We had several means of communication which was truly an asset and she always responded in a timely manner. In addition to her skills and thoroughness, she has a great personality. She is happy, friendly, eager and I always felt like I was her most important client, even though she had several others she was working with. I highly recommend Lori to anyone in the process of buying or selling a home.

Bought a home in 2012 in Chico, CA 95926.

Lori was a JOY to work with. She made buying our first home a very easy and smooth process for us. Lori is always available by phone/text/email and has very quick responses, she made us feel as if she was working 24hrs a day to get us the home we wanted. After meeting Lori and telling her what we wanted in a home, she listened to what we wanted/needed and she quickly set off to find it for us. She showed us homes that had everything on our "Wish List" and she didn't waste our time by showing us homes that didn't meet our criteria.

When we found our home, she fought to negotiate to get us what we wanted, and she did just that. We get everything we asked for and then some. Lori knows her stuff, from the market to the loan, and the title. When we purchase in the future, we will defiantly be using Lori Akers of Rancho Chico Real Estate!!!
