"Lori supported my family in buying a house in Wilmette, IL. She possesses incredible knowledge of the local market and was able to guide us through an extensive search process. I really valued how consultative Lori was around neighborhoods, houses, pricing, etc. Also, COVID-19 was ramping up during our search which created additional concerns around valuations and ensuring we were making the right decision. She was the "steady hand" throughout the process to ensure we found the right house at the right price. Beyond the house search process, she has been incredibly helpful in recommending individuals/companies to support the home buying process, along with contractors for various projects. As someone from outside IL, I'm grateful that Lori truly represented our interests, consulted with us throughout the process, and enabled us to find the right house. I would give her my highest recommendation."

"Lori is a first class professional that is always, always, always focused on the needs of her clients. We bought and sold the same home through her. I think that some agents are better at buying or selling but not both. Lori's skills were excellent on the buy and sell side. I would recommend her any day."

"Working with Lori was a great experience. She is very knowledgeable and professional and did everything that she promised she would do for us. She provided a much more thorough marketing program than the last broker we used. Lori was very caring and understanding of our needs. She was brutally honest, but in a good way. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home in Wilmette and we already have done so."

"Lori is incredible! After interviewing other agents to sell our house, we chose Lori because we were impressed with her business background and impressive sales statistics--essentially her track records shows she sells your house for close to asking price and in a very quick time frame. And that is EXACTLY what she did for us. In a tough market, with a lot of competition, our house sold for nearly asking price without even hitting the market! On top of that, Lori is simply a lovely, kind and thoughtful person. We will always be grateful for Lori's help in what can be a stressful, emotionally charged process!"

"I liked Lori the minute I met her. She's upbeat, enthusiastic, and most of all...knows her business. We had some ups and downs with the property, but she always had a positive and encouraging attitude. Had good ideas, a great assistant, Megan, excellent resources to help with staging, repairing, painting, etc. Great to work with. Always available for answers to my questions. Good person. You won't be disappointed if you hire Lori."

"We contracted with Lori to sell our house and we are super pleased with her professionalism. She guided us through the whole process: from getting our house ready for sale, and then staging (which WAS definitely a plus in quickly selling our house). She always kept us informed when there was going to be an open house , and any other showings. (She does not use a lock box because she wants to be at each showing.) She quickly gave us feedback on each. Our house was sold within the month it went into market!!! I HIGHLY recommend Lori. LISTEN to her suggestions . She is defiantly a PRO as to what she does!

"Lori is THE BEST agent that we have ever worked with! She helped us simultaneously sell our house and buy our dream home. It was one of the most stressful life events but with Lori's guidance and expertise in the market, everything went seamlessly. She was always there for us at every aspect of buying and selling. She helped us stage our home, provided a strong marketing presence and most importantly, is an excellent negotiator!! We always felt that she was our advocate negotiating on both the selling and buying end. She walked us through (and held our hands at times) any changes or questions that came up during this entire process. She gave us her expert advice and we felt that she always had our backs. She is a true client advocate with very strong negotiating skills. We highly recommend Lori for any real estate needs!!"

"I am happy and proud to recommend Lori! This is the 2nd home that we purchased with Lori in 3 years. She is efficient, willing to go the extra mile and great with negotiations! She also knows so many people so that if we need help in any other home related area in makes everything so much easier especially for us because we come from a different part of the state.
Thank you Lori!"

"Lori's nothing shy of tremendous! She guided us through our new home purchase with such care. Simply put, Lori is lovely, smart, and witty.

When considering a new home, it was of utmost importance to us that our broker know the local market inside and out. Suffice to say, we only wanted the very best. While we've only lived in the area for two years, it became obvious very quickly that Lori Neuschel was the talk of the town. We also had the distinct privilege of being Lori's neighbor during this time. We saw the human side, and having now worked with Lori professionally, we can honestly say that Lori is the total package! I cannot imagine having gone through this purchase with anyone else by our side. It has been a great honor to work with Lori!"

"Lori is very professional and makes me feel confident about buying and selling property. She has a sunny disposition and is a pleasure to work with."

"Lori is the best. No really, the best. If she was a chief strategist for the US, we'd have world peace in a week. She knows how to listen to a client's needs and budget, her knowledge is so extensive, and having her in your corner is the most reassuring part of the entire process. Also, she's enjoyable to be around. I can't speak highly enough of her, there's no one else I'd ever use in the future to buy or sell."

"We worked with Lori for a period of 10 months. When I was interviewing several agents, Lori was the only one who really listened to our needs, budget, and desires rather than pushing properties that were available. She continued to reflect back on our needs and desires when we started looking at properties that, while interesting, would not meet our needs in the long run. She was patient and persistent. Her local knowledge of other agents in the area, helped us be the first to see the property we ended up purchasing. Without her drive, we would have missed purchasing our home. Throughout the inspection and closing process, she was on top of all the details and the entire transaction went very smoothly. I cannot recommend Lori highly enough."

"Lori is a wonderful, highly experienced professional to work with for home buying and selling. She assisted us both in selling our home as well as purchasing a new home. Without Lori, and her various contacts, we would not have found the home that is perfect for our family. As an added bonus, she is super friendly, responsive, and energetic. Working with Lori was a great experience! We highly recommend her!"

"Lori was an incredible guide and support to us during our home search, which was a long process. Her patient, calm and confident presence was truly a gift. I can not recommend Lori highly enough!"

"Lori is extremely professional and helpful. She is responsive to answering phone calls, texts and emails promptly. We relocated to the north shore from out of state and Lori has been very helpful getting us acclimated and answering any questions and concerns. She is highly respected throughout the community and realtors from neighboring companies."

"Lori is the most vivacious and dynamic realtor we have ever known! When we decided to sell our home of 20 years, we immediately asked Lori to handle the sale for us. We had colorful brochures printed and plans to put it on the market by a certain date. However, Lori was aware of someone in her office working with a couple who had been searching for a long time for the "right home". She felt they might find that "home" in our house. Within 24 hours of showing our house, the sale was complete! Then, Lori helped us find the perfect townhouse, where we lived for the next two years before moving out of state.
Lori's efficiency and thoroughness are only secondary to her positive energy and enthusiasm as she puts 110% into her efforts!"

"2012 - Lori was instrumental in helping us achieve our goals. We sold our home, located a rental home, bought a lot, and decided on a builder all within a three-week period. Lori helped guide us through this decision making process and offered sound practical advice at every point.

Lori was a tremendous source of guidance through the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. She was extremely professional, insightful, and responsive. All the things that you look for in an agent. But most of all, Lori acted as a sounding board for us. She listened to all our ideas, thoughts, and suggestions no matter how unconventional. And we were unconventional. We would highly recommend Lori to our friends looking to make a move!"

"We followed Lori's advice and recommendations to the "T" and within 4 days of listing she had multiple offers and we closed at nearly the full asking price. Her recommendations were critical to effecting the quick and successful sale and we'd recommend Lori very highly for anyone who is selling their home."

"Lori is the consummate professional who knows the Wilmette area and has a strong networks of contacts in the industry that helped drive a buyer to our home. Her recommendations for legal counsel and help in staging the house for sale were all great to work with. With Lori's help we found a buyer and closed on the property quickly. I would highly recommend Lori."

"Hi LoriWe really appreciate your work on our home sale. I think all the players made the most out of a complicated situation. I feel very fortunate that so many elements fell together so nicely during this process. And you were the chief coordinator of the effort.Many many thanks!!All the best for the summer and beyond,David."


"Thank you so much for all your work and support in selling my townhouse. Your knowledge and experience provided me with the guidance I needed and I really valued it."

"We greatly appreciate all the work you did to sell our house too. You made the whole experience very easy.Thanks."

"Hi. Just wanted to extend our thanks to each of you. Really appreciate how diligent, attentive, patient, and supportive all of you were during our home-buying experience. You were great advocates and, importantly, are true experts. Glad we worked with such a fine group of professionals.We hope to have the opportunity to refer you in the near future and always welcome being references for you as well."

"Wow! I really can't believe it. So fast. Thank you so much for your hard work Lori. You really are a pro."

"Thank you for your support and encouragement through the whole process. You made everything so easy!"

"Nat and I want to express our sincere thanks for your work on our home sale. You were effective, professional, responsive, and got the job done in record time. We would be very pleased to recommend you and to be on your reference list, not that you need any more such things!"

"Lori is a rock star and a true pro. She stands head and shoulders above other brokers in her professionalism, market knowledge, and results."

"Rich and I wanted to write and to thank you for all that you have done for us. It is hard to believe we met you just a year ago!We greatly appreciate all of the research and guidance you gave us during the six months we were actively searching for a home in Wilmette. Your knowledge of the area, coupled with your own personal experience with the schools and with what each surrounding community has to offer was invaluable. Your strong professionalism was a quality we have yet to find in any other real estate broker. Finally, thank you or the wonderful manner in which you negotiated the sales contact of our home. Once again your professional manner of speaking and of dealing with other people aided us immensely in the buying process. We feel fortunate to have had you as our realtor.We will continue to highly recommend your services to our friends. Should any of your prospective clients wish to speak with us, please feel free to encourage them to call us directly! Thank you again!"

"Lori Neuschel is an outstanding realtor with whom we had the privilege of working over the last 6 months. We recently both purchased and sold a home with Lori. This is our third move over the last 5 years and Lori made the process easier than any of our prior moves. She has a very organized and effective approach that helped us find the right house for us. Loris number one priority is that her clients are comfortable and pleased with their decisions. At no time in our process did we feel pressured by Lori to act quickly. Lori was always extremely supportive and understanding of our feelings and emotions. She was there for us as both a realtor and a friend from the beginning to end.Additionally, when it comes to negotiations and pricing, Lori has a top-notch business sense and feel for the market. She guided us to a purchase price on our new home that was comfortable for us. Additionally, she was able to sell our current home in 1 day for a price that exceeded our initial expectations. Lori is fully committed to her clients. She is very accessible and always looking out for the best interest in her clients. In fact, she found the house we purchased while checking listings from out of town and contacting us with the information. Moreover, instead of having a partner negotiate the sale for us, she did all the communication between us and the seller via cell phone from out of town. She clearly goes above and beyond the call of duty to insure the happiness of her clients. We feel fortunate to have had the experience of working with Lori and have nothing but the highest recommendations. She is a one-of-a-kind realtor."

"Thank you so much for helping us find our new home! We are excited to be back in Wilmette and we know how lucky we are to count you as our friend!Thank you for the beautiful bird bath and the Baskin Robbins gift certificate! All will be put to good use! Thank you also for the WONDERFUL dinner after our move! To date it has been our best meal since we have been back! Please add this gift certificate to your collection and enjoy!"

"I am writing to thank you for your outstanding work in selling the Oakwood house and Lake Street condominium. Your advice on pricing and approach was right on, and your execution was flawless. As executor of my fathers estate, I had an obligation to get the best possible price for each property. Because of you I believe we did. It was a pleasure working with such a smart, honest, creative and committed professional. If you are ever asked to provide references, please put me at the top of your list."

"This note of thanks is long overdue. However, it comes with all my sincerity and gratitude to you. As you know, we lived in our Wilmette home for 13 years, and it was difficult to think of moving on and selling our cherished home. When we decided to relocate to St. Louis there was no hesitation on our part as to whom we would choose as our realtor. From the moment we listed with you, your professionalism and business savvy and expertise were highly evident. We feel that you priced our house perfectly and fairly. Despite being in a down housing market, we sold our home quickly and at a price we were extremely happy about. The entire process, from signing an agreement with you through closing, was effortless for us in every respect. We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work with you as our listing agent, and we highly recommend to any potential client of yours, to choose you as their listing agent."

"Thanks you for everything you have done in your work as the selling realtor. When we had the change to meet you when we looked a a different home on the same street in the summer of 2006, we knew then you were the kind of business woman we could work well withand our every expectation was fulfilled. You have exceptional talents, skills, and experience. IN all the areas that real estate work involved: knowledge of the market, business sense, aesthetics, and people skills. You are responsive, resourceful, creative dedicated, smart, savvy and very pleasant to work with. You put 100% into the market analyses a, the tasteful staging, the polished marketing materials, the accompanied showings, the effective open houses, the positive negotiations and all the paperwork. And for your help getting just the right rental opportunity for Gloria, we cannot thank you enough! No one appreciates a job well done more than we do! We know that in a market like this one it might seem appropriate to say its a miracle when a home sells as quickly and painlessly as ours has. But this was no miracle. It was the result of an amazing job on your part and a really effective partnership thanks for resenting our house, and all the love and hardwork we put in to it, to the world in a way that made someone see just what a special home it can be. Its been a pleasure ..lets do it again some day if the chance arises."

"Thank you for being a partner and friend during this exciting and emotional process. We were very grateful for your expertise and guidance. I hope you'll come an enjoy an glass of wine with us at the new house & celebrate this next milestone."

"Thank you Lori for all her outstanding advice and guidance in the home sale process. We don't do it very often and don't want to do it very often, so we needed an expert guide and Lori you were that guide.Thanks again,"

"I wanted to take a minute to thank you! What a difference a week makes! We asked for the impossible and you delivered the impossible. We are so grateful tonight and we are so appreciative of your work."

"I can't thank you enough for helping out there in the end-- vacuuming, hauling, and tidying- we really appreciate your help! All unexpected problems aside- you did a great job and we too wish you all the best."

She provided good insights and suggestions without being overbearing. We felt very comfortable with Lori as our agent and would recommend her to others."

In short, we are very happy that we had the opportunity to work with you as our agent and very satisfied with final result."

"We had a challenging transaction. Lori guided us through each step. We felt so confident with her at the helm. Lori was amazing - a calm and attentive guide through negotiations with a very difficult buyer. My husband and I frequently said only Lori could have gotten us through that chapter successfully, and we were so happy she was in our courtroom.I have already sung her praises throughout WIlmette many times - the only problem is that it seems everyone already knows this, or has heard it from so many others they'd already decided to use her."

"Mike and I want to thank you for all your efforts on our sale and close of our home. So many cant believe how quickly it all came together having labored over so many of the details its easy to lose sight of the big picture. Thanks we so appreciate all you did on our behalf. You helped us achieve our dream lori. I know that if you ever want a place to lay your head and escape IL, we have a pillow here waiting."

"Being repeat customers, we have had the pleasure of working with you and experienced the way in which you support and solve the myriad issues surrounding the sale of homes. And as friends, we appreciate how you balance the complicated nature of your job with personal relationships. We know it requires tact, tenacity and compassion. You are suited to it, and the rewards of the past decade prove that point. In what has been a difficult and unpredictable (not to mention competitive) market, you have flourished. Kudos, friend."

"Thanks for all of your help in the home buying and selling process. We absolutely love our new house, and are happy/relieved to have sold our house so quickly. Of course, we'll continue to rave about you to all our friends and neighbors. Really everything could not have gone more smoothly and we owe it all to you."

Lori was excellent at balancing between listening to us about our needs/priorities and interjecting with her viewpoint and advice when appropriate.

"Lori was exceptional. From the moment we first met , we were impressed with her marketing skills . She analyzed our house thoroughly, even finding comparable sales of houses with swimming pools over the past several years. Lori helped us find the right competitive listing price, worked with a stager, created a beautiful brochure, advertised, and aggressively sought out buyers. As a result we had an offer in 4 days--couldn't ask for more. Finally, Lori was a delight to work with. She was always cheerful, returned our emails promptly, and called periodically just to see how everything was going. We would highly recommend Lori without hesitation. She is a real pro!"

By doing so, we had an extremely effective, efficient, and smooth process from start to finish. She was really incredible to work with."
