“After many failed attempts to find a home and an Agent that just simply “gets it,” we were finally blessed the day I called Lori. From the very first phone conversation, Lori has put in countless hours of work and dedication to our very specific needs and wants. Lori never makes you feel like she’s too busy to get back to you, or that her vacation is more important than her clients. She responds to you as quickly as she can…sometimes you are her last text of the night. Lori listens to you and no matter how crazy the process can get, she stands by you. For us, she has been the calming presence in a storm of first-time homebuyer fears and uncertainty. Her knowledge, expertise, responsiveness and negotiating skills are far beyond what you’ll expect. Never stopping, never ceasing to amaze us. She is an amazing Real Estate woman. We are truly grateful.”- M & J, New Bedford, MA

“Thank you for doing what I thought was the impossible.  After two other brokers, very well connected in the real estate business, could not get done over many months, I met you to see a property (that is now mine) and I just knew you might be the one to sell my house. Well, a week after you listed my house we had an offer that culminated in a sale!!!  You are a small bundle of energy and expertise who can get things done.  I highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell or buy real estate. Please feel free to use this message (accolade)in your business literature.” – Gloria, Dartmouth, MA
