I offer my absolutely highest recommendation for Lori as your next partner in your real estate endeavor. From the first interaction, until the shared congratulations after closing on an above asking price closing, Lori will actively pursue your best deal, and make the experience as worry free as possible. Do not pass on the opportunity to have Lori working with you on your next home sale.

Living in Hawaii and trying to sell a house in Florida was an intimidating thought. I reached out to Lori and she assured us it could be done without much hassle. She was right! After almost 12 years of renters in the house, it needed some TLC, a lot actually, that we didn't want to take the time to do. Lori was confident it would sell. Right again! With very little investment in repairs and a strategic listing price, we got 5 offers in the first three days--all over asking. Throughout the process, Lori was open and honest with us. She did all the local leg work and even worked brilliantly with the current tenants. I would highly recommend Lori for any or all of your real estate needs. She's amazing to work with!

When our rental home became vacant on very short notice, we decided to sell it, rather than looking for new tenants. Despite the challenges of living 11 time zones away, COVID complicating routine interactions and a deployment to CENTCOM, Lori tackled this sale with gusto and delivered unimaginably good results! From inspection to listing, and contract to closing, Lori made the process simple and kept us informed all along the way. She understands the unique challenges of buying and selling homes while coping with military PCS timeline constraints, and her desire to serve her clients well is showcased in her results. We were listed promptly, under contract within hours, closed within a month and made more than we thought realistic. Lori made this sale easy, efficient and profitable and we couldn’t have done it without her!

Lori has been on my side since before I even moved to the Niceville area. I was able to view and discuss potential homes all the way from Italy. She helped us get into a place fast easing the transition for both me and my daughter. That was Sept 2017 and since then had answered questions about the market and rental/purchase opportunities from condos to stand-alone houses. Once again, she has not failed me. I had a tight timeline between retiring, selling my home, moving my daughter back to campus, and moving myself into an RV. I absolutely could not have done it without her so quickly and smoothly. Her focus and dedication to taking care of her clients is evident in every request and communication. If ever I move back to the area, I’ll be calling Lori for sure.

We bought a house without even seeing inside it until the day prior to closing. We weren’t even in the same country until just before closing. Lori took care of literally everything and we have a gem of a home.

She is extremely personable and very easy going. She doesn’t get wrapped around the axel about silly questions and she’s got patience for days with new home buyers like us. She’s from a military family and understands what it’s like to be moving around the world every so often.

Lori is fantastic when it comes to finding the home that we wanted. She did virtual walk throughs and uploaded them to a private YouTube channel so we could see everything. She didn’t just breeze through either, but found all the nooks and crannys that might need attention or change the impression of the house. Always concerned about how old appliances were, how the roof looked and what the rest of the neighborhood was like. Attention to detail, anticipation of needs, wants, concerns are her strong points.

She helped us get set up with all the other entities it takes to buy a house from mortgage agents to home inspectors to title insurance to which utilities & phone numbers to get them set up. When the house needed some work in conjunction with the contract sale, she took care of ensuring the work was done and sent picture and invoices over to us as verification.

Lori is the best! Call her and she’ll take care of you and your new home!

It's with pleasure that I highly recommend Lori and her extensive knowledge of home buying in this area! While searching for our "forever home", Lori paid very close attention to the market and networked to get a jump on upcoming properties. Our search for waterfront brought unique challenges which made her expertise truly shine. From offer to closing, she handled all obstacles so that the process was smooth and seamless. I can't thank Lori enough for helping make our dreams come true...and I know that she can do the same for you!

Lori is awesome! We had very specific requirements and Lori made sure that the homes she showed us were in line with what we were looking for. She made it possible for us to find our forever home. She took the worry out of closing the deal by handling all the details and keeping us well informed along the way. We will definitely recommend Lori to anyone moving to this area.

Lori was highly recommended to us from a friend. We are in the military and while still being stationed overseas she helped us find a home in Navarre, Florida. She worked around our time difference and would FaceTime us when looking at a house. It was like we were right there! She kept us informed every step of the way making the process smooth. Lori is extremely friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. I will be recommending her to anyone I know that will be moving to the panhandle.

Lori was amazing to work with to sell our townhouse. She went above and beyond to market our property and work with buyers, agents, the property management company, contractors, and everyone else along the way. Her excellent communication and willingness to represent us made selling our property from a distance possible and so much easier than it might have been. I would work with Lori again and recommend her to anyone without hesitation. She is friendly and enjoyable to work with, while being a true professional at all times.

Lori is the best! She helped us find and secure our dream home. We don’t live in the area so she went above and beyond to look at properties for us.
Lori is very knowledgeable and professional. We are so thankful for all she did to help us! We would not have our house if it wasn’t for her hard work!!

Lori is simply fantastic! She went way out of her way to help me find the perfect house. She was attentive and so very personable- I consider her a friend now! I could not say enough great about her! I would recommend her to everyone!

We can not say enough good things about Lori!! She was amazing every step of the way during our FIRST home buying process. She’s very friendly, knowledgeable, honest, helpful and quick to reply.

We just moved back from living overseas and we signed on a house without seeing it in person. We never would have done this with anyone else. We felt we could really trust Lori and she went above and beyond getting us info, answering all of our questions, FaceTiming us so we could “see” the house, etc!

We would recommend her to anyone and everyone and we are glad to now call her a friend!

Thank you again Lori!!

Lori did a tremendous job for us in a fast-pace market. Working with us while we were in Japan, she was able to "tour" us through our options, get us information on schools, animal boarding facilities, and any other questions we threw at her. Over the time difference, Lori was always very responsive to our questions. We always felt that she had our best interest at heart, and are very pleased with how smoothly everything went considering the immense physical distance we were working from. We are more than happy to recommend Lori as a realtor, especially to military families, as she is a prior military spouse and has a true understanding of the challenges military families go through with each move. We are happily settling into our home and are thankful that Lori helped make our transition so much easier!
