Broker, Real Estate Broker with Keller Williams Realty (9 years experience)
We recently bought our first house with Lori as our agent. Let me say first, there is so much to the home-buying process than you think. So many things to keep organized and be detailed with, let alone the negotiation process.
Lori handled everything. She is a saint. Lori answered all of my questions thoroughly and patiently while continuing the transaction. We absolutely knew she had our interest at heart much more than anything else. She valued our time so much, she made herself available at a moments notice if needed. Lori knows the market inside and out and was able to get us our dream house at the price we wanted. We went through 3 other agents, and by far Lori stands alone. I can't express enough my gratitude for all that she has done. Highly recommended.

I believe in "working smarter, not harder" and you are only as good as the people you have on your Team.
I choose Lori Mikell as our "Short Sale Negotiator" every time! Lori really is amazing at what she does.
We are 2 for 2 on closing our short sales with Lori Mikell. Both of the short sales were a Win-Win for both the seller and the buyer. Both Short Sales had a 1st and a 2nd Lender and we were able to get them approved with a seller's credit towards the buyer's closing costs. Both of my sellers were ecstatic that we were able to exceed their expectations.
My team is so blessed to have Lori Mikell as our short sale negotiator. Lori handles all of the negotiating, while we get more Listings!
If you are looking for a detailed and responsive Short Sale Negotiator that gets you results, than Lori Mikell is the key to your success.
Thank you Lori for all that you do for our Team!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Wilmington, San Pedro, CA.
Lori is outstanding. We were selling my mother's rather neglected townhouse. Fortunately, it was located in a high demand community. Lori was able to assess the true value of the property, in spite of it's condition, which was not move-in ready at all. She knew just the buyers (investors) who would be interested and was able to secure 7 offers on the property. She was helpful in assessing the offers and helping us get the best value for the least amount of hassle. Her knowledge of the community was very helpful, as we live out of town. She was willing to meet me at work to sign documents and go the extra mile to make the entire transaction smooth and hassle-free. Whether selling or buying, I would recommend Lori to anyone! She's just awesome!
Lori is an exceptional real estate agent. She assisted us in the purchase of our home and was involved in every aspect of the sale from the inspection to the appraisal to the closing. Her real estate experience and knowledge of the process was increadible. We highly recommend Lori!
Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Lawndale, CA.
Lori is a great real estate agent! Last year we were fortunate enough to have Lori assist us in renting out our house in Lawndale. Communication was top rate, our calls and emails to her were answered immediately. I believe that it was Lori’s extensive knowledge of the area that helped us price the rent right and got us a great tenant right away. I have, and will continue to recommend Lori to my friends and family for all of their real estate needs.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in San Pedro, San Pedro, CA.
Lori was great to work with. She was extremely patient with us and really helped us understand the buying process. So we learned a lot from the experience. We sensed right away that she had a lot of experience, and so this experience in negotiating with and understanding the seller was especially valuable. Also, she was responsive to my demands, and even though she had to deal with a serious family issue just around the time of our close, she still took the time to communicate with us and keep us in the loop about what was going on. Even afterward, she has taken the time to check in on us to see how we were doing. It is this last point that I consider very important, as we feel that she certainly cares that we are happy even though the transaction is closed - how often does this kind of follow-up occur when you head out the door of a shop after spending considerable money on something?
We feel grateful to have worked with Ms. Mikell and would definitely work with her and her team again and we feel confident enough to recommend her to our friends.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in San Pedro, San Pedro, CA.
I was very lucky to have Lori as my real estate expert! She helped this first-time buyer, who had very little knowledge of pricing and expectations, get into a well-priced AND well-maintained first home. She was very patient with my novice questions, and even hooked me up with a great lender at an awesome interest rate - 3.85%!!! I can't express how satisfied I am with her expertise and professionalism. Thanks again, Lori!
Lori is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Real Estate! She's great to work with and always there for you when you need her. She has helped me over the past 10 years, sell homes, list homes, short sales, leases, lots and more. She know's her areas and is well connected in the community.
