Business:

As your real estate agent, it is important to me that I do more than just meet your expectations...I want to exceed them. I am constantly anticipating the needs of my clients. That means I might: pack a cooler of food and drinks for a relocating client who needs to cover a lot of ground in a limited time; or send comparables to a buyer who is deliberating about what to offer for a house; or take a potential seller to view active comparables so that they can truly understand the pricing of their home...

As your real estate agent, it is important to me that I do more than just meet your expectations...I want to exceed them. I am constantly anticipating the needs of my clients.

I take great pride in providing a service that my client may not have even recognized or articulated that they actually need.

Experience:

As a former Psychologist, I have found that my background translates well into Real Estate. I recognize that even a seemingly "positive" move is stressful and will do what I can to ease this transition. I am an excellent listener. For a buyer, I will really pay attention to their description of what they are looking for in an ideal home. I'll preview inventory promptly and won't waste time showing those homes that are not in line with my client's criteria. For a seller, I will listen to what they have liked in their current home, and use this in my marketing materials. When negotiating, I'll listen to the other agent's covert communications and use these to my client's advantage. I am also an effective and clear communicator and have absolute respect for confidentiality. My clients know that they can trust me and that I will always tell them the truth; even if it means losing a potential deal.

Accomplishments and Awards:

My family has lived in lower Fairfield County for 20+ years. I have two wonderful daughters whom I love immensely and have also learned much about the school system and area opportunities for kids/families through them.  This time has allowed me to appreciate the nuances of the different towns. As a family, we have personally utilized many of the amenities first-hand. Many of my clients continue to use me as a personal resource for years after their closings. I can provide lists of vendors, restaurants, where to shop, nursery schools, local doctors, etc. It is quite typical for me to even provide guided tours to clients who are new to this area. I enjoy this part of my job immensely.  I am a member of the National Association of Realtors as well as our local Mid-Fairfield Board of Realtors. I am a recipient of both the Leading Edge and the President's Circle Awards and have consistently been a “Gold” award winner at Sotheby’s.  I have also been a board member of SEPTA (Special Education PTA) and our town's Gourmet Club.

 I started  a small wine tasting group about 8 years ago that has been a source of much pleasure/education, and am also a participant of a local book club. I enjoy working out, socializing, and MOST OF ALL MY JOB AS A REAL ESTATE AGENT.

Testimonials

We recently sold our home of 10 years in Weston and used Lori as our broker. From the initial pricing and marketing meetings through the closing, Lori was an ultimate professional. She is extremely knowledgeable about the current state of the market, competing properties and appropriate pricing and sales strategies. Most importantly, Lori was very easy to work with. Whether it was finding contractors to do minor repairs or recommending an extremely professional and well priced lawyer for our closing, Lori was right there for us. She was always accountable, a creative problem solver and, most importantly, actively supported our position throughout the process. We highly recommend Lori both as a person and a real estate professional.

My husband and I recently embarked on a cross country move to be closer to family. We knew we were interested in an antique home in the Redding area and were very fortunate to have found Lori to help us with our search for the perfect home for us. Lori's knowledge of the Redding area and neighboring towns was invaluable, particularly as we were doing much of our communication thousands of miles apart! Once we found our dream home, Lori was with us every step of the purchasing process from negotiating price to finding an attorney to represent us to providing us with recommended service providers. Moving for anyone can be a very stressful time. Lori's calmness and support helped to make our transition to this new chapter in our lives a smooth one. We knew we could trust her and that we were in good hands. We highly recommend Lori as the consummate real estate professional and as a person of integrity.

I can’t thank you enough for all that you did to help make this deal happen. I know that being a real estate agent is a difficult job, and that you end up doing all kinds of different things in the process of selling a house. I also know that this particular deal was especially challenging. You did more than could ever have been reasonably expected of you. I am extremely grateful. I also want to say that we interviewed four agents all of whom were extremely competent and experienced. I had a gut feeling from the beginning that you would be the right choice, and equally important, so did my son. He insisted we hire you! Both of our instincts were spot on. If there is ever an opportunity to recommend an agent in your area, I won’t hesitate to recommend you. Thank you so much !
