Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Plymouth, MN.

Lorraine was a wonderful representative - she understood my needs and wants in selling my property and facilitated everything in order to make it market-ready. She made the process of selling my home uncomplicated and took a lot of the stress away. I will recommend Lorraine to anyone who is in need of an agent - she is thoughtful, cheerful, responsive and a wonderful person to work with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Big Lake, MN.

This was our first time selling a home and second time purchasing a home. Lorraine was committed to high productivity, clear explanation of process, and timely communication. By setting our sale price reasonably and staging our home, we were able to sell in 21 days. Lorraine consistently made time for us and made us feel like we were her only clients. At the same time Lorraine also helped us to find our new home. She was always sending us new listings and scheduling showings very promptly. Because of Lorraine's persistence and high energy the closings on both homes went very smooth. We highly recommend Lorraine as a Realitor. She is truly an expert in her field.

Bought a home in 2013 in Golden Valley, MN 55426.

Lorraine was great to work with, took plenty of time to help us, and helped us find the house we wanted! Our search lasted about 3 months, she was patient, always available and worked with our schedules to show us homes when it was convenient.

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2013 in Port Cargill, Bloomington, MN 55437.

Lorraine is very good about getting the house on the market and quickly. Photographs taken of the exterior and interior of the house are excellent. Lorraine is great at keeping open communication and returns calls very promptly. She is a lot of fun to work with and I would recommend her to my family and friends.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Excelsior, MN.

Lorraine is such an exceptional professional in her field that I would like to be able to give her more than 5/5 stars! Her accessibility and responsiveness make you feel that you are her only client, although a review of her strong sales record quickly tells you otherwise-as she is a highly sought after talent. Even though we were pursuing a humble "starter" home, Lorraine worked tirelessly to help us navigate the sometimes complicated world of foreclosures and made us feel as valued and important as any of her luxury home clients. I was constantly thankful for Lorraine's expert negotiation skills which were essential to our procurement of our home and so happy I chose to work with her on my home purchase.

Bought a home in 2013.

Lorraine made my first time home buying experience very easy and enjoyable. She was always there to answer my (many) questions, and always answered questions I never even knew to have. Her positive attitude and expertise in real estate made my experience very pleasant, and I will certainly work with her in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Hiawatha, Minneapolis, MN.

We wouldn't have been able to find a house and make it ours so quickly without Lorraine. Her responsiveness and confidence made it possible for us to beat out other offers on our house. She knows what it takes to make a good deal and isn't afraid to ask. I would highly recommend Lorraine. She was a joy to work with!

Bought a home in 2012 in Glenwood Junction, Robbinsdale, MN 55422.

We were first time home buyers and the first realtor didn't feel he could give us the time he thought we would need. In other words, did we luck out working with Lorraine! She was wonderful to work with, there every step of the way. She started out explaining from step one what we would be experiencing. Always responsive, easy to contact and would be proactive, contacting us when necessary. Everyone that works with her has the highest respect for her and helped feel we were working with a team. The house we ultimately got could have slipped away with another agent. We love it and if we have any other real estate needs, we can only deal with Lorraine!

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $350K in Minnetonka, MN.

Lorraine represented my wife and I in our purchase of our home in Minnetonka in 2008. She was patient and helpful as we had her tour us through countless homes and was a real pro at managing the transaction and getting us to closing. Everything was on time, as promised and as it should be. She's a class act all of the way!

Over the past 10 years, I worked at a licensed real estate broker on over $1.3 billion in commercial real estate listings and closings all over the country, but when it came time to buy my home, I'm glad I worked with Lorraine. I'd work with her again in a second and have recommended her to friends, family and commercial clients..

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Cleveland, Minneapolis, MN.

We cannot say enough about this realtor. If you want someone to work hard for you every step of the way, then Lorraine is it! We the worst lending experience ever and she was there through the whole process and is the reason why we have our house today. Lorraine, is a negotiating queen with all the class and professionalism you could possible want in a realtor.

I remember almost going with another realtor in the beginning but 5 minutes on the phone with Lorraine and I knew she was the one for us. Her knowledge and endless advice about things we may never have even thought of when looking at neighborhoods, investment in community, and how to evaluate a house when looking at it, proved extremely beneficial to us. I cannot say enough good things about Lorraine as she and my loan officer have been the best part of this house buying experience.

You CANNOT go wrong with Lorraine as your realtor, this comes from a person who is skeptical of everyone :)
