Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Auburn, CA.
Lori was AMAZING with the home-buying experience. From the very start, she sent us homes that met our criteria, she met with us when we were available, and we never felt pressured or rushed as we have felt in the past with other realtors. This was key for us because we wanted to find the perfect home and not feel rushed in making a decision. Lori is knowledgeable, down to earth and we will continue to use her for future home buying/selling transactions. Definitely recommend her!

Lori always showed us a great deal of enthusiasm and expertise. She was very good at getting back to us with information to help with our search which took nearly a year! We felt that she personally cared about us.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Garden Valley, CA.
With the greatest of good fortune, I contacted Lori (of the three people shown on the listing) regarding a property that I wanted to see. I quickly decided to make an offer and Lori proved to be both a wonderful person and knowledgeable guide to the purchase process. While the owner's agent was slippery and somewhat uninterested, she helped me through the entire process to its completion and beyond.
I have only positive things to say regarding Lori and the service that she gave me.

Fantastic Agent- Really *listens* to what her clients want vs. imposing her own values on the search process. Above and beyond follow though to ensure a smooth process and quick close. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Lori.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Diamond Springs, CA.
Lori was amazing! She helped us both sell and buy a home over the last 6 months, staying up to date on the changing market. She guided us through the process, explaining it, and keeping us informed from start to finish. She stayed in constant contact, always responding promptly to calls or emails, the way customer service used to be. She doggedly kept the process moving forward in order to close even faster than we expected. She even helped coordinate inspections and the small repairs needed, as well as be onsite for them when we couldn't be. She helped take the stress out of the process!

I am a first time buyer and new to the area and Lori Garrido was recommended to me. I had not a clue what I was doing, or if I would even qualify. I picked up the phone, called her and she walked me through each step of the way. She spent countless hours with me on the phone and in person showing house after house. If I didn't understand something she would explain it until it was clear and was so patient with me. She was very honest in her opinion of the homes and had so many neat ideas of how she would fix it up which got me excited! If there was a home I really liked that was a little out of my price range or just wasn't worth the asking price, she would still take the time to fill out the paperwork and submit it and simply say, if we get it great and if we don't at least we tried. Her energy is so wonderful and positive. I was usually laughing when I was around her. She even showed me a house when she was running errands with her hubby on the weekend and he pointed out cons about what we thought would be the perfect house and we were so thankful! They are so awesome. I actually was hoping I'd find a house around hers because I wanted to hang out with them more often! She definitely treats you like a friend and will drop everything to help you or show you a house. That's what you need with a market like it is now. Sometimes we would only have a day or two and your offer would have to submitted and she was on it! I worked a lot of hours too so I was a pain of a client and she worked so well around my schedule! I just really want to thank her so much for the great experience I had as it was my first time. The process of home buying is a pain in the butt and I am grateful I had Lori or I probably would have been miserable!! So thank you Lori!!! And your husband who is also so kind and helped a lot! You guys are so great :) I would absolutely recommend Lori Garrido to anyone who is looking for an honest, kind, funny, hard working, energetic, knowledgable agent. Also, it was very helpful that she was so familiar with the area and neighborhoods (good & bad) because I had no idea where I was most of the time and if it was safe or not. Thanks again. Oh and I have been in my home for almost 4 months now and it is so wonderful, exactly what we were looking for! I am so thankful none of the other offers were accepted!!

We were so very happy with Lori! She really listened to exactly what we needed and wanted. She was so efficient and knows the area well! She called the morning our house listed, showed it to us that afternoon and had our offer in the next morning! She kept us updated through the whole process. We highly recommend her.

Lori worked very hard for us through a large number of houses before we finally found one that fit our needs. She also worked with us to make the entire process from house hunting through the entire purchase process which is really important with all the in's and out's and the huge amounts of paperwork that a real estate transaction can be.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Pollock Pines, CA.
Lori is exactly the kind of realtor that we needed when we acquired our home through a short sale - friendly, knowledgeable, patient, thorough yet professional. In addition to her extensive local knowledge, Lori's strongest attributes are her exceptional customer service and the ease at which she creates a trusting working relationship. Lori worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect fit - in style, location and price. It's not surprising that we've stayed in touch 2+ years later.
