Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Downtown, Long Beach, CA.
Lorri helped me sell one condo, find a short term rental and buy another condo. Being from the local area, she had a great sense of the market and neighborhoods. Lorri also made some great referrels for a plumber, painter and other home services.
Lorri was very efficient with the paperwork, getting documents organized and processed. She was always available to help move things ahead. She was very helpful answering questions about the different types of sales so I could understand.
I am very happy that I was lucky enough to come across Lorri. In addition to the nuts and bolts of selling and buying homes, Lorri went above and beyond to help me find a rental for the in between 6 months. Truly a parnership.
I recently used Lorri to sell my condo in Signal Hill and she was an outstanding person to work with. Lorri was on top of the market as well as her sales strategies being right on. She is an outstanding realtor, she is a person who follows through on all promises and follows up on everything. Lorri is extremely helpful in making people understand the ins and outs of the sale, and will basically hold your hand through the process if necessary. She is also very personable and I'm happy we became friends. Yes, the condo sold and the sale went without a hitch. Lorri a a pleasure to work with and I recommend her highly. Thank you for everything you did for me Lorri, you went above and beyond expectation.

I contacted Lorrie because she had expertise with Short Sales. I didn't understand any of it. Lorrie was GREAT! We had a very difficult lender to work with (in India!) and then right before the sale was to go through they sold my loan to another group (in NZ).
Lorrie got everything handled like the pro she is and done on time. Loved having her as my agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in The Plaza, Long Beach, CA.
We were frustrated buyers in a red-hot seller's market here in Long Beach, and had a disappointing experience with our first agent. We were determined to be more selective with the next person, and Lorri came out on top after we interviewed and checked references for several agents. Now that we've found and purchased our home, we can honestly say that Lorri is the best agent we've ever had (after 7 house purchases/sales between the two of us)!
Lorri's attention to detail, follow-up, and understanding of the intricacies of California real estate are truly world-class. She has high integrity, and was never afraid to give us her honest opinion or steer us away from situations that seemed less-than-ideal. She also did a great job of managing our mortgage broker through a loan approval process that was challenging, to say the least. We will not hesitate to recommend Lorri to others, and plan on using her services again.

Lorri went above and beyond to make sure we closed escrow in time by helping the broker with needed information and also helping the sellers real estate agent move forward in a timely manner. She was also very helpfull with repair quotes needed to negotiate a price reduction for the property. Her knowledge of the area and properties in the area was very helpful. Lorri is also still helping us with rental agreements which are needed after we closed escrow. Her dedication to her work made this purchase a much easier transaction. Without her I feel I would not have made this purchase as it seemed complicated and she made it seem easy. Thanks Lorri.
After looking for a home unsuccessfully for several months and after having worked with a couple of realtors, I found Lorri through this very same Zillow site. Since I was very impressed with the warm accolades and shining review, I decided to give Lorri a call. This turned out to be a great decision, since it was a pleasure working with Lorri. Her cheerful and upbeat attitude, and professionalism and communication skills helped keep the stressful process of looking at multiple homes and competing in a multiple offer seller's market, not only bearable but also fun. We eventually found a home that I was very interested in, but the entire transaction turned out to be a roller coaster ride due to it being a short sale, having uncooperative sellers, and a terrible seller's agent. Had it not been for Lorri representing me as the buyer's agent, I firmly believe that the deal would not have gone through. Lorri worked relentlessly to keep the deal alive by tactfully communicating with the seller's agent, used her negotiating and interpersonal skills to get me the best terms and conditions possible, maintained the utmost level of integrity when faced with propositions that would violate short sale arms length transactions and the DRE code of ethics, and overall kept me grounded and helped alleviate my stress throughout the process. Lorri is an awesome realtor, not only because she is excellent at what she does, but also because she treats her clients as friends and not as dollar signs. She deliberately does not spread herself too thin in order to be able to give each client the attention and service they deserve. In conclusion, if you are looking for a realtor that will make you feel like a friend instead of a another client, a realtor that keep you laughing in the midst of stressful negotiations and offers, a realtor that will go the extra mile to keep your deal alive and going, a realtor that has excellent interpersonal and communication skills, then Lorri is the one for you.

My husband and I worked with Lorri as first time buyers, and could not have been more grateful for Lorri's help and advice as well as getting a great deal on a great house.
We had spend the better part of a year doing our "homework" and preparing to enter the market, but we were still nervous. Lorri was very approachable, available, and super willing to talk with us about anything we needed to anytime. She was never pushy, in fact really she was the opposite! She felt more like a very knowledgeable and savvy friend helping you out.
She really got to know us and "read" us as a couple -- she even helped us see when and why houses we were considering really were not the best fit. She continuously reminded us not to settle, and that our goals and price range were attainable. She kept us realistic without letting us settle.
Once we had found our house, made an offer, and had it accepted Lorri ended up being the only reason we were able to get into our house. We had a heck of a time with our loan broker(s), and if Lorri had not been there to guide us through, re-route things when needed, and fight on our behalf... all the while keeping the seller happy, informed, and willing to wait -- we would not be in our home today!
We are so happy, and could not recommend Lorri more. She is great.

Lorri was great to work with, she always made time to meet up and was always trying to help find new places. She was very patient with me and my family, which was needed since this I'm a first time buyer. She would go out of her way for her clients. I would recommend her to anyone buying a home or condo.
I could not have found a better realtor. Lorri goes above and beyond any realtor I have ever worked with. She sold a house for me in 2006 - in one week! Then helped me recently purchase a house in 2013. She responded immediately to any call or concern -- even after we closed escrow! I would highly recommend Lorri if you are interested in selling or buying a house. She will not disappoint you.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in North Long Beach, Long Beach, CA.
Lorri was a godsend from the very beginning. She is an expert on multifamily homes and that is what my husband and I were looking for so the information she gave us beyond her role was priceless. She is patient and responsive and was able to give us reality checks when we needed them in the most gracious way. She knows her stuff and is willing to share her vast knowledge of the market in a way that gives you confidence in your decision making processes. And besides all that she is a hoot.
