Bought a Townhouse home in 2011 in Historic Uptown, St Petersburg, FL.
Lori is a great realtor. She stuck with me thru a few deals but eventually she got me in my dream home. She helped me rent while i was looking too! Lori definitely took the time to get to know me and what I needed in a home long term. I can't thank Lori enough for helping me find my perfect home! I recommend Lori to all my friends and acquaintances.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 in Largo, FL.
Lori sold my mother's condo for me during a very weak market. Being as out of date as it was, with a pink kitchen, purple bedroom, blue living room with blue ceiling, she recommended I update it with paint, a few repairs and then stage it out for viewing appeal. Financial challenges to maintain the condo prevented us from doing so at that time. Lori brought us quit a few prospective buyers, but it just didn't appeal to any of them and it just wasn't selling. After a while she recommended we lower the price and sell as is. I agreed we should that. This white elephant had to go. It was draining me dry. Well that didn't work either. So, push come to shove, the decision to update and repair was made. Being I live in Ohio and the condo in Florida, it was impossible for me to get bids and manage the update. Even though sale would bring a very meager commission, Lori took charge for me and took care of absolutely everything. The bits she presented were extremely reasonable and the contractor she chose did a great job. Lori even did some of the work herself. Including installing new pulls on the cabinets and using pieces from her own home to beautifully stage the place. What can I say? This was totally off the chart compared to the hundreds of agents I have worked with in the past. Lori got the job done. The condo sold to the first buyer and the closing went great. Mom is in assisted living in Seminole, Having difficulties giving up her home and becoming dependent on others was understandably very hard. Mother, also having been a Realtor, had a tendency to give Lori a very hard time. Through it all, Lori maintained a very pleasant professional attitude and continued to do her absolute best to sell Mom's condo. She was amazing. I would never have expected any Realtor to go as far as she did for such a small penance only possible. Do I recommend Lori? Hell YES I do. You could end up fools with anyone else. Lori ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in North Kenwood, Saint Petersburg, FL.
Thanks to Lori I found the perfect home. She is professional and kept on top of the closing process to make sure there were no surprises. She was always available to answer any questions and made the whole process stress free from start to finish.

It was wonderful to have Lori on our side, looking out for our best interests when buying our home. She was truly attentive and genuinely concerned about our needs and wishes. Lori brought great value to the process. We will defintely recommend her services to others and will seek her out for future endeavors.

Bought a home in 2014.
There were two things about Lori that makes her stand head and shoulders above any other realtor I have worked with. (And they are many.) First, her relentless work ethic and negotiating skills are unparalleled. Secondly, her personal touch and attention to detail are impeccable. I will not use another real estate agent.

Lori is a warm dedicated real estate professional. She gives you 110% and she has a very pleasant personality. She is warm and friendly and easy to talk with. She tries her best to accommodate her clients with the property you are looking for. I am sure that when we are able to move her area we will keep her as a good friend and not just a real estate professional that found us the home of our dreams.

Lori is excellent, knowledgable and a joy to worth with for your next home. Although I have not bought yet, she will be the person who completes my home buying process. Lori has other professionals on her team to get you through everything from a mortgage to closing.

Lori helped my buy my first house. I had no idea what I was getting into, and she was there every step of the way to thoroughly explain the process and answer any questions I had. I also made a new friend along the way!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Ruskin, FL.
Lori was recommended to me by my sister in law, who's friend dealt with her for a previous sale. I had no prior experience with Lori before she became my realtor, but I was impressed with her knowledge, and enthusiasm from our first encounter. We had the unique situation of having our home listed as a short sale, Lori told me that she was very familiar with this process, and that we would take an aggressive approach to getting our home off the market and was there every step of the way. During the time period between the listing, and the actual sale of our home, Lori offered support, counsel, and comfort, while seeing the deal through to the end, always upbeat, optimistic, and resourceful. Because the nature of the short-sales can be arduous, there were some tough moments, but Lori stepped up, and got us through them, time and time again, exceeding our expectations. I would recommend her to my closest friends, and family, and will definitely reach out to her again in the future.

Showed home in 2012 in Saint Petersburg, FL.
Awful experience. She was very nice but clearly did not know what she was doing. Her negotiating skills left a lot to be desired. We saw several houses with her and it became quite clear that she just wanted a commission. We made an offer on one house and she didn't tell me that the seller's statements about permits was not true. I only found out that she knew this when I brought up that I couldn't find any permits. Nice woman but would not recommend her as a realtor.
