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

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.

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 have organized and headed multiple wine tasting groups in Lower Fairfield County.  These groups have provided much socialization and education to the community.  I also am a member of several book clubs, lead a Special Needs Mom’s Coffee, enjoy working out, socializing but, MOST OF ALL MY WORK 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.

We met Lori Elkins at one of her exclusive listings. We were so impressed by her inside knowledge of the Fairfield CT. area, and most importantly her passion with working with people, that we quickly signed her as our exclusive agent. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. If patience is a virtue, then Lori is a saint! She must have shown us several dozen homes and never became tired or frustrated with us. She stuck with us until the end and negotiated an expert deal on our dream home. We have a family physician and now have Lori as our family real estate broker. We recommend Lori Elkins highly and without reservation.

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!

“We have worked with Lori twice and would highly recommend her as a real estate agent. We first met Lori when looking for a rental property in Wilton/Westport. Lori’s friendly personality and extensive knowledge of these towns convinced us to hire her as our agent when buying a house. After several months of looking, we finally purchased a home that we love. Lori is a terrific agent for several reasons: -Lori is patient and always has a positive attitude. We never felt rushed during our search and when it seemed like we might never find the right house, Lori was optimistic. -Lori listens to what you want in a home. Lori will not waste your time showing you houses that do not meet your criteria. She saved us a substantial amount of time by previewing properties. -Lori is great at following up-all phone calls and emails were promptly returned. -Lori makes you feel as if you are her most important client, regardless of your budget. -Lori has stayed in contact with us, even after the closing. If we ever decide to sell our home, we would immediately contact Lori.”

“Lori helped me to sell my home and to purchase a new home at a very stressful time in my life. I was newly divorced and downsizing. Also, the housing market was very difficult. Nonetheless, Lori’s professionalism, and enthusiasm helped to make this a positive experience. Her background in psychology really came through, as she really listened to my needs, communicated clearly, and always maintained confidentiality. Also, she really tuned into any subtle communications from the opposing agent, and was able to use this to negotiate on my behalf. Lastly, it is clear that Lori puts the needs of her clients before herself. She is always willing to jeopardize a sale, if she feels it is not the right move for her client. Lori is the rare agent that one can truly trust.”

Helena S.

Hire her! We moved from the Philadelphia area just over two years ago and Lori could not have been more accommodating to our schedules and showing us around in the snow drifts that winter. Her knowledge of the area really helped us get our bearings at each home. She was also very attentive and listened to our needs and wants. We were growing tired of the process when she gently insisted we visit one more house she thought we would like. We fell in love with the house and Lori worked tirelessly to help us navigate a sale by an estate and where there were multiple offers. Thanks to Lori’s dedication and understanding of our needs we found a great house and we love living in Weston!

Susan Conlin Jay Conlin

I wholeheartedly recommend Lori. Despite a challenging situation—we were out of state and needed help in preparing the house to sell—she helped us get close to asking price in a timely way. She went above and beyond in coordinating work on the house, cleaning, and staging the house for sale. Overall, working with Lori was an excellent experience.

Jane H. Palmer

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.

Susan Marilley

“Lori did a wonderful job selling my house during a less marketable time of the year. Her years in counseling helped me to navigate an often stressful process-she was able to keep her head when I was losing mine! She was both tenacious and flexible in marketing my home. Lori’s communication with prospective clients, brokers, attorneys, town officials and myself was excellent…If you want a proactive advocate/agent who will go that extra mile for you, I would, without reservation, recommend Lori Elkins.”

Barabara Catton

“Lori Elkins worked with us to buy our home in Weston about two years ago. She minimized our ‘wheel spinning’ by showing us only those houses that met our parameters. When we found a house we liked, she worked diligently and assertively with the owner’s broker to resolve all of the ‘issue’ and negotiate the best possible price on our behalf. We found Lori to be not only highly competent, but also a pleasure to deal with. She was always very pleasant, patient, and attentive to our needs and concerns. This is a woman who goes above and beyond the call of duty. She provided us with excellent service not only during the search and buying process, but after we had moved in as well, offering a multitude of referrals and helpful information. We heartily recommend Lori to anyone who is seeking to purchase a home in the wonderful town of Weston.”

Dan Benninghoff Alysia Benninghoff

Lori was a great help at all stages of selling our mother's condo. She advised us on local craftsmen to help get the condo in shape to sell, and even met them occasionally at the condo for us. My sister and I live out of state, and had full confidence in Lori's ability to market the condo and represent us to potential buyers. She has a lot of knowledge about market conditions in the area. Eventually the condo sold for near asking price in a cool market. Thank you, Lori!

Charlie Hammerslough

“Moving to a new state is hard enough, but Lori Elkins made us feel right at home. She has gone above and beyond her duties as a Real Estate Agent. Not only did she find our beautiful home, she also helped us look for an appraiser, and inspector and nursery schools for our kids! She always made herself available to fit our schedule. When we first met Lori, she left her office and met us at the restaurant we were eating at with a bunch of listings and highlighted map of where each was located. We were impressed! She has an abundance of resources that can be used at her client’s disposal. She is knowledgeable, prompt and most of all very helpful. Not only is she an excellent Real Estate Agent, but she has also become a friend.”

Stephen Vincini Scilla Vincini

“I have been very impressed in my work with Lori Elkins. Among real estate agents that I have worked with over many years, I have found Lori to have exceptional skills and instincts as an agent. In a sales profession that is fraught with many actual and potential conflicts of interest, I have never doubted that Lori always puts her clients’ needs and interests first. She is always candid and answers questions patiently, thoughtfully and intelligently…Lori clearly takes a holistic, customer service view in working with her clients. I recommend her services enthusiastically and highly.”

Eric

“My husband and I bought our home with Lori Elkins. What could’ve been a very stressful time was nothing but a joy because of her. Lori is a pleasure to be around and made our home search a wonderful experience. Her knowledge of real estate and her genuine concern for the happiness of her clients make Lori Elkins the perfect person to work with.”

Marah Melillo Michael Melillo

We had a great experience working with Lori buying our home in Weston. Since we were moving to the area from out of state, her knowledge of the surrounding area was invaluable And during the whole process she was very responsive to all of our needs and available whenever we needed her. She was also extremely helpful in coordinating our closing date, making recommendations on lawyers and inspections once in contract. Lori offered excellent advice, answered every question (and there were many!) and helped us make informed decisions. We were lucky to have worked with Lori in finding our home and highly recommend her.

Bryan and Christine C.

Lori Elkins was not just the consummate professional, but she was a warm and pleasant presence during a challenging time. My wife and I had decided to retire and move to Florida and sell our condominium in Westport. Like many families, over the years we had accumulated items that we no longer needed. Lori literally helped me to sort through boxes and referred us to a handyman who lugged everything away. She also helped us to stage our home. Furniture was moved around, and items were removed so that the house looked less crowded. She also connected us with a painter who was reasonably priced, and did a great job freshening up our house. When the house was ready to market, she wrote excellent copy, hired a fabulous photographer and created a gorgeous website, virtual tour. Unlike other agents I have come across, Lori never left things on auto pilot. She was constantly doing open houses and strategizing. In the end, our home sold with multiple offers. We highly recommend Lori; she goes above and beyond, but more importantly it is obvious that she truly cares!
