Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in New London, CT.

Lori was wonderful during the process of selling our home. We sold our home long distance and relied on Lori's expertise to handle everything for us. She kept us informed, assisted us whenever possible above and beyond her normal hours and really made the process as simplistic as possible. Lori was a great communicator, her experience, resourcefulness and tenacity got our home sold quickly in a bad market.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Waterford, CT.

Lori and her staff were very professional and easy to work with. They listed and rented our beach home in two days and our tenant is all we had hoped for. We are thankful for their help and will be using Shoreviews LLC in the future.

Showed home in 2012 in Central Waterford, Waterford, CT 06385.

Lori is a very knowledgeable about the area we were looking which should have been an asset to me, but her attitude and arroragance made it impossible for me & my wife to do business with her. When it became apparant that we could not work together she refused to let us out of the contract we signed with her. Lesson learned, NEVER SIGN A CONTRACT WHEN LOOKING FOR A HOUSE! I have bought 3 properties & sold one, so I am familiar with cheap sales tactics some agents use. Every property we looked at was the BEST according to Lori & we should put in a full price offer immediately before someone else does. She even told me that one property we looked at that she & her husband might put an offer in! Very condescending too! Do yourself a favor and shop around for a agent who seems concerned with you rather than seeing a $ sign.

Thank you for the opportunity to address your satisfaction and for acknowledging my expertise and knowledge of the Waterford real estate market. It is not in any buyer’s best interest not to sign required contracts, and places agents in a position not to be able to assist the buyer in any legal or professional manner. A Right to Represent contract is required in CT to show homes, otherwise an Unrepresented Buyer Agreement is required by law. As long as both parties behave in a rational, courteous and competent manner, there are few issues. I use hard facts in my broker price opinions. If a buyer offers hundreds of thousands less than a home is worth that buyer can expect a rejected offer. When the property sells to a different buyer for hundreds of thousands more, it is because that buyer understood the value of the property. I offered to refer this client to the agent of his choice and release him from his contract, but he declined.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Oakdale, CT.

Using Lori as our agent when selling our old home as a short sale and buying our new home as a foreclosured property was a very pleasant experience in spite of the unusual circumstances along with some issues. When faced with a obstacle, Lori responded professionally and in a timely fashion to resolve any issues such that the home selling/buying process could continue without any overall schedule delays.

Lori's knowledge of the area, the contractual terms and conditions of buying/selling property and her ability to negotiate in the best interest of the client made our experience of selling and buying a home a stress free experiance.

We would categorize Lori as a real "go-getter" who gets the job done under any circumstances.

Lori is very knowledgeable and educated on the housing market and ways to get a closing done the right way, fast and complete the first time around with no hiccups that lead to delays. She is aggressive and honest, always placing her clients best interests first and will give you an honest opinion on pricing and housing logistics. If you are seriously looking to sell or buy, and want your interest to be placed first, give Lori a call.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in CT

I met Lori only once and it was due to a return call from her. Even though she knew right from the beginning of our conversation, that I was already working with a Realtor, that was also a good friend. Lori was very helpful, educational, pleasant, and made me feel like I'd known her for a long time. I'll tell you, She has to be good. For me to actually take the time to type this out is something for me!

I would recommend Lori in a minute. Thanks for your help Lori, I know we'll speak again. Mike.

I am happy to assist and share my knowledge with customers who may need a second opinion or just need some guidance. Paying it forward is what being a small business person is all about. Hope we can work together in the future.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in East Lyme, CT

I called Lori after having difficulties with another agent. Lori was very help and knowledgeable about my rights. If I could I would have switched agents in a heart beat but...next time.

Sold a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $175K in Waterford, CT.

Lori was superb in helping me sell a condo in a tough market time. I interviewed a number of agents in the area but no one met the standards that I was looking for. We set up a game plan to sell the property in one month or less. I did my own research for the area and Lori gave me her honest suggestions what we needed to do to sell the property. Even though there were four units for sale and one unit was two doors down. We were able to sell the property within one week and with multiple offers on the property. I was also able to close the same month. Lori is very professional and attentive of the business and uses all the resources at her disposal. I would highly recommend her to my friends and any one else. I am very pleased with her work.
