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 Being as out of date as it was, with a pink kitchen, purple bedroom, blue living room with blue ceiling, she recommended I update it with paint, a few repairs and then stage it out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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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 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.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $50K in Tampa Heights, Tampa, FL.
Lori was a wonderful realtor to work with. She had my house listed two days after I initially spoke to her of listing it. She always promptly returned phone calls and emails, excellent communicator. I was always given ample notice when a showing was scheduled, which I greatly appreciated. Everything about the process of selling my home using Lori was very smooth and I will definitely use her again in the future!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Tampa, FL.
I looked for homes in the Tampa Bay area and Lori was extremely patient with me while we looked at house after house. She showed me homes that were in my price range in different neighborhoods and this really gave me a good sense of what was available in what area. It was a real education, and enabled me to make the right decision in the end. She has the vision to see the potential in a property that may need some work and is able to make some very astute suggestions to improve the property to suit one's needs. She was very professional and a real joy to work with. Her knowledge of the real estate business is extensive and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2012.
It was a pleasure working with Lori. She had a contract on our house in less than 24 24 hours. She stayed with us through the whole process. She was awesome! We plan on using her when we buy our next house.
