Clients are saying:
"Lori was extremely responsive to all of our requests, some of which were on short notice to see places. She was very creative and provided ideas for turning our 4th bedroom into a multipurpose room for our young family. We will be looking next year for our forever home and will definitely be using Lori again."
"Lori represented us for both the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home and she was a consumate professional and trusted advisor every step of the way. She really used her industry knowledge, experience and perceptive intuition to maximize the benefits to us. You cannot find a better broker to represent you. Thank you, Lori!"
"So pleased with the way Lori approaches all the details. Not easy to help a family navigate through this process. She is always available to answer questions, search for the right fit and make sure we have considered all of our options. Nice to have someone u can trust and rely on...at all times!"
"We are currently looking at homes in the Wilmette and Winnetka areas and Lori has been tremendously helpful in our search. Since we live in the city, our schedules have been a little hectic and trying to learn the neighborhoods and find the houses we want to see was quite a task. Whenever we call Lori, we always receive a text or call back within the hour, even if she doesn't have the answer quite yet. We're hoping to find something by this summer before our 5 and 3 year olds start school. Fingers crossed!"
"Working with Lori Nieman in my real estate adventure was a wonderful experience. She is very professional, considerate and knowledgeable in what she does. Being new to the area, I was most appreciative in her giving me names of painters, a floor-staining company and a handyman whom she uses. Lori is a very dedicated and personable person and I would recommend her to anyone who is in the market for buying or selling."
