Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Ferndale, MI.
I'm not one to go online and write reviews but I decided to do so after seeing Lori's friendly and beautiful face on this site. :) I met Lori at a random bonfire in Ferndale and instantly knew she would find the perfect home for my fiance and I. We always knew we wanted to start our family in Ferndale and Lori was determined to make our dream come true. Everyone has their own busy schedules, including Lori's, but her's always seemed to revolve around ours. She emailed and texted us immediately when a house that fit our specific needs was put on the market, which is huge because the good ones go fast. She walked us through this perfect house 2 hours after it was put up for sale. 2 days later, it was ours. Now my wife and soon to be baby girl are living the dream. My advice: If you really want it, Lori will find it for you. If you are prepared to buy it, Lori will close it for you.
Without doubt, Lori is absolutely fantastic at what she does. She takes a personal interest in not only what you want, but also with what you don't want, how you'd like the process to go, and she won't let you make a poor decision (rare in this arena). She was available every time we had questions, including late nights and weekends. She makes you feel like you're the most important person in the world. Because Lori has lived and worked in Ferndale the majority of her life, she has the "inside scoop" on what's coming on the market and the people to get things done. She has a genuine way about her and helps you feel comfortable and confident during every step of the process. She'll have you laughing every time you see her. If it weren't for Lori we would've been eaten alive by the process of buying our first house. We owe her our first born!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Ferndale, MI.
Just purchased a home with the help of Lori and I plain simply cannot recommend her enough.
She made the whole process incredibly smooth, comfortable and honestly fun. At no point did she ever try to talk us into something that we were not interested in. She was very mindful of budget, not once trying to get us to go for something that we would be uncomfortable financially in. She knows the area like no other. Not to mention, she was extremely responsive and put in a ridiculous amount of work in to making sure we got the house we wanted. Hands down, without her, we wouldn't have this home.
Honestly, my only complaint with Lori is that she found us a house that we love so fast, that we don't get to hang out with her anymore.

My fiancé and I purchased our first home in Ferndale with Lori as the buying agent and were extremely satisfied with the level of service, professionalism, and value Lori provided. Lori kept our best interest a top priority throughout the process and never made us feel as if she had her own agenda. Lori is extremely knowledgeable in her market and you can tell she loves what she does and genuinely cares about you as a buyer and a person.
We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to utilize her as our agent and you certainly would be too!

Lori is the best! I worked with her for years before finally pulling the trigger on a house in Ferndale. She was patient, knowledgeable and understanding. Hands down, she knows the Woodward Corridor better than anyone. From start to finish, she made my first-time buying experience an absolute joy. I actually had fun! I recommend her to all my friends and family looking to buy/sell in the area.

Lori was the seller's agent when we bought our house. We were so impressed with her that when we decided to sell the house 18 months later, we called her. From the first conversation, Lori was amazing. She was always available and made sure all of our needs were met.
I would highly recommend Lori to anyone who enjoys working with a fun, energetic, conscientious and knowledgeable realtor!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Ferndale, MI.
As was looking into buying my first house, I realized that I needed a realtor. I worried that choosing one of the "premier agents" recommended by Zillow might have been a long shot, but I still tried it. And man, am I glad I did.
My husband and I had 0 home-buying experience, but Lori was extremely patient in helping us along in the process. I'm sure at some point she must have become frustrated with our naive expectations, but she never let it show. In the end, we went from emailing Lori prospective houses to closing on our dream house in less than three weeks. She'll probably roll her eyes at me for giving people too-high expectations, but I've got to tell people my honest experience!
To sum it up, my husband and I are moving into our first home after a very easy home-buying experience, and we owe a lot of that to Lori.
Finally a real estate agent that is real and able to connect with and understand what her clients really want. Took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Knowledgeable about the areas that she covers and also, made the house hunting and buying process easy and fun.

Lori was more than a realtor; she quickly became a friend navigating us through the often scary world of buying our first home. Her honesty, knowledge of the process and tough negotiation skills make her a great agent, but it's her compassion and careful guidance that sets her apart. As first-time home-buyers, we were inundated with information, best practices and unsolicited advice from everyone we came across. Lori helped us weed through it all and gave us the necessary tools to make decisions we were confident in and comfortable with. She not only listened to us, but empowered us to think outside the box. It's because of Lori's expertise and integrity that we now have our dream home. (A house that we actually passed on previously because we didn't like what it looked like in pictures.) You'd be lucky to have Lori go to bat for you.

Lori has done an excellent job finding and arranging showing of properties that match very closely what I was looking for.
After I submitted an offer she worked with the seller's agent to seal the deal and assisted me through every single step of the purchase and closing process.
Lori has very high communication skills and has not only answered all my questions in a very timely manner, but also provided insight and guidance in purchasing a house, which is something that most of us don't do every day.
I cannot think of a better realtor to have on your side, regardless if you are selling or purchasing a home.
