Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Happy Valley, OR.
Lori Winterhalter has a way of being honest in every regard concerning the marketing of one's property. She also is very positive about the way things are going. We felt that Lori was looking out for us and creating opportunities to show our home in the best possible light. Our house was on the market for 11 months so it was a long journey but we had many showings because Lori was tenacious in getting our house out there for all to see. She is the hardest working realtor in Happy Valley and we were very pleased with the process of finally finding a buyer and then how she carefully negotiated our deal through a difficult inspection process. We highly recommend Lori for all things real estate!!

Lori is great! I would absolutely recommend her to help you sell your current home and/or find your next home. My husband and I have worked with her twice now, and we have been so impressed with all that she does. She has wonderful knowledge of the area, offers great input and guidance, and goes above and beyond to be sure that her clients are happy, comfortable with the process, and confident in their decisions. Our most recent transactions (selling our current home and purchasing our new one), required a great amount of responsiveness, swift-but-wise decision making, and a slew of last-minute requests. Lori was on top of everything throughout the entire process, and ensured that all parties felt positive about the transactions in the end. If you're looking for an agent to help you buy or sell, definitely go with Lori. You won't be disappointed!

Lori was great. By far the best realtor I have ever worked with. She kept us sane during the long process and was super responsive. Her knowledge of the Happy Valley area is very impressive and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home.

Our experience with Lori was great! She is very thorough and gives great service. Returns all phone calls promptly. While looking for a new home she was very knowledgable about the area and the options available to us. I was a first time buyer and she explained everything in detail throughout the entire process, we felt as if she was always looking out for our best interests.

Lori Winterhalter sold our home within 2 months of it going on the market. Lori was exceptional in the staging of our home and taking the perfect pictures. These pictures and Lori's detailed description of the home I believe is reason it sold so quickly. Lori was very attentive, patient, and informative with us.
We also had Lori help us find our new home. Lori was very good at listening to our wish list for the new home. She took us to many different homes which allowed us to compare and really narrow down what we where looking for. Lori was always available and happy to show us homes for sale. Lori was not pushy, she was very knowledgeable when it came to the area, price, style, size, condition of all the homes we looked at. Lori took her time to get to know us and what we where looking for and found the perfect home for us. We bought our dream home in Aug 2013. If you are looking for a Top Performer look no further, Lori Winterhalter is the best.

Lori Winterhalter worked with us the entire time we were trying to relocate to the Portland area. Lori kept us informed about the market and the listings that might work for us. We had daily contact checking listings and reviewing plans. I'm not sure anyone else would have stayed with us through this long process. Ultimately she found us the perfect house in the exact location for our needs.
The paperwork went smoothly and any questions were addressed promptly. Her communication with our lender was flawless. We were ahead of the game most of the time . Lori is very detail oriented and always follows through on anything asked of her.
She gave outstanding service and I would buy or sell with Lori again without reservation.

I am so happy for you & John. It was a long wait for you to finally make the move to Portland and so happy you get to be here with all of your family. You got a fabulous Menashe Custom home for an amazing deal and I am thrilled for you to be up here in our neck of the woods. Love you both. Best, Lori

Lori sold my house for me recently and I was very disappointed overall in her performance. She talks a good talk but she did very little to promote my house and I found her frustrating to work with...she can be very bossy and opinionated. She promised weekly updates on the status of my house and four weeks would go by without a word from her. I would have to call her to find out what was going on and the only time she made efforts were after I complained that she didn't seem to be doing anything. My house was on the market for seven months..she had promised that she could sell it in two months or less...and eventually it did sell... only after I had dropped the price considerably. It was a beautiful house, with many great features and perhaps a different agent who put more time and effort into selling it, could have sold it much quicker and without my having to reduce the price as much as I ended up doing. Every time I checked on the house there were never any flyers there and the staging she promised was extremely minor and did little to enhance the house. I would not use her again and wish I had chosen someone different.

Lori was so great throughout our entire home buying experience. She was attentive, friendly, and an excellent negotiator! Lori fights for her clients, she does not just settle for a no. Lori is encouraging and really goes through every option she can to ensure that you get what you want. Lori makes the home buying experience more than just a purchase, she is another member invested in what you want and helps you get there. She took us to every house we wanted to see and was always available to answer any questions. Most important she is honest, you can really trust Lori and that makes the experience so much better. I would and will recommend Lori to anyone I know. Lori is someone you can trust and she will find you your dream home!
