I have been a resident of Chicago and the North Shore for the last 30 years, having lived in various neighborhoods of the City, as well as in Winnetka and Wilmette.
With over 20 years of experience in both commercial and residential real estate, I bring a unique, buttoned-up and current approach to the ever-changing real estate sales process. Negotiating skills are imperative in this business, and my years of negotiating with top institutional owners and executives of Fortune 100 companies, have given me the skill set to work with real estate attorneys to ensure that a residential transaction gets across the finish line. I am passionate about my desire to help others find their dream home and keep my finger on the pulse of the market, often knowing of properties coming on the market, months in advance. This is an important approach in a competitive market and allows my clients to preview properties in advance of most other prospective buyers.
My passion for interior design and knowledge of what buyers are looking for in a home, also set me apart on the listing and selling side. With an inventory of accessories and furnishings, I will personally help to stage a Seller's home and work tirelessly to make sure it shows at its utmost potential and sells at top dollar within the least amount of market time.
I guarantee an unparalleled commitment to my clients, with quick response times and enthusiasm and have been praised accordingly by clients for being dedicated, trustworthy, genuine and extremely responsive.
Having been a resident of Naples, FL for the last 8 years, I also maintain a Florida real estate license and work tirelessly in helping my clients find their primary residence or vacation home in Naples and Marco Island, whether a golf or waterfront community. When not working, you can find me cheering on my children in their various sports and volunteering in their school and my communities of Chicago and Naples. I love traveling, playing golf, pickleball and platform tennis.
I would be honored and humbled to speak with you, and earn your trust for all of your real estate needs.
Clients are saying:
"Lori is the only person I would consider for my residential real estate transactions. She is professional and dedicated to her goal of making the client happy with every aspect of the experience. Truly the best person to work with."
"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!"
"Lori helped turn my somewhat dated, mid 1990's era home into a highly marketable property.. In a challenging real estate environment, her staging talents as well as her tireless and unrelenting commitment proved to be the winning difference."
"I was opposite of Lori on a recent transaction valued at right around $1.5 mm. Lori was an attentive and strong communicator. She was professional, dispassionate, and unlike many agents, didn't sweat the small stuff. She understood both the emotional and technical side of the transaction. Every email I sent to her was answered within hours, even when I knew she was juggling other transactions. An agent who knows how to keep clients from blowing up a deal over a hot water heater or a window pane is a gem, and Lori fits squarely in that category."
"Very responsive. Outstanding job of creating photo layout of home both inside and out. Arranged and took away various furniture and items to better show house."
