“Lori helped sell our home and purchase our new home. Lori really took the time to find and show my family and me properties that had everything we were looking for. She was receptive, patient, and allowed us to take our time in finding the perfect home for us. Lori has great knowledge of the selling and buying process and truly had our best interests at heart. Being sure to ask important questions when looking at potential homes reminded us what to look for as far as the maintenance and conditions of each house. Through working with Lori and being able to trust her to always steer us in the right direction, she has become a friend “

“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, no matter how crazy the process can get, and 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

We thank you so much Lori, you are such an amazing person and a really great realtor! :-)” – L.F., New Bedford, MA

In the one week we had available to look for homes, Lori was able to find and schedule over 10 showings matching our specific requirements. She worked tirelessly, including evenings and the weekend, to help us eventually find our home. She went way above our expectations. We are very happy with our decision. Thanks to Lori’s hard work and dedication.” -L.S., New Bedford, MA

Can even offer decorating ideas that helps clients to visualize what “could be.’  She has helped friends buy/sell houses and most recently, assisted my daughter with her “first house purchase.” I would highly recommend Lori to buyers and sellers!” – K.S., Dartmouth, MA

“Lori was one of three referrals I got from The Villages, Florida.  I called all three Real Estate Companies and Lori was the first and only one to respond within 24 hours and the other two never called me back.  Lori is knowledgeable and Real Estate seems to be her passion, which made us decide to go with someone who will work hard for us.  This is the third Condo we have sold here at The Landing and her service exceeded our expectations.  Lori Nery and Coastal Realty are an example of Excellence.
People are always intimidated by excellence
Because when excellence is around
Mediocrity shows it self for what it is…. not enough” – P.L, Florida

“Lori is amazing! I worked with a different agent prior to her & didn’t have the best experience. She came highly recommended by some friends & I found out why. She told me more in the first hour than the other agent had in 4 showings. She actually showed me a house the same day we met. She was extremely familiar with the area & would openly tell me listings that weren’t a great choice. I’ve already recommended her to some friends & will continue to do so. She sold me my first home & I’m very happy with it.” – G.H. Fairhaven, MA

“I hired Lori in 2003 to find my first home. Actually, she hired herself, taking it upon herself to help us identify what exactly it was we were looking for in a new home and delivering listings within 24 hours. She immediately set to work and quite simply did not rest until we found the perfect place. She worked tirelessly, regardless of the hour or location (on vacation!) to meet our requirements. She employs best practices in communication, staying connected and at your service before, during and long after the sale. Lori is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and approachable and we became friends through our business together. When it came time to sell that house and search for another, we did not hesitate to hire Lori. She managed to sell our home in a lousy market in 3 short months and find us a new home an hour away. She was at every viewing despite the distance and her guidance made an otherwise disenchanting experience bearable. I would be happy to expound on my experiences with her if you are considering using Coastal Realty.” – M. D., Cumberland, RI

“Thank you for selling Marion’s house.  You certainly made it look easy even in this terrible economy.  You are terrific to deal with and relieved us of a lot of stress.  Somehow you have a very calming effect.  Selling her house was harder than I thought.  I hope she is looking down and happy that a nice family will be moving in.  I can only hope!  Again, thank you for everything.” – H. & V.M., Lakeville, MA

“Dear Lori, Just a quick note to thank you for being a participant on our panel of ‘Back in the Day’ experts.  Sharing your experiences from the past should certainly help our less experienced members understand that these economic times are more closely related to a normal market.  I hope you will consider participating in similar programs in the future.  -N.D., Broker, MA

“Dear Lori, Dave and I want to thank you again, personally, for your invaluable assistance in bringing the sale of our property to a very satisfactory settlement. Your courteous and professional demeanor along with timely updates and to the status and progress of negotiations was indeed very impressive. We would not hesitate to do business with you again and would highly recommend you and your company to any of our friends and family. ” – D. & J.P.

“Referring Lori to friends, family, and neighbors is so easy for me to do. Not only are you the ultimate professional and so good at what you do, but you are also kind, honest, and sincere, which is so refreshing!”  -T.B. Dartmouth, MA

I also admire your ability to handle an overwhelming response and give everyone equal opportunity regardless of who presented the offer. Your a truly a professional. Thank you!” -G. N., New Bedford
