Thank you for working with us as we relocated from out of state. We really appreciated the fact that immediately upon initial contact you helped us define what we were looking for in location, schooling, and amenities, then began providing daily e-mail and web site updates on properties in the market that matched those criteria. Over a several week period this daily update gave us a sense of the market; what was available, the pricing, and the pace of new entries and sales. By the time we arrived for our house-hunting trip we knew a great deal about what we did and more importantly did not want to look at and how deep the pool of housing in the area was.
Additionally, thank you for making yourself available on our schedule and working to make yourself available when we were in town. The fact that you cleared your schedule and were able to dedicate successive days to our search provided a lot of continuity in our selection process, making the final decision to put forth an offer much easier. Going as far as to hand carry our offer to the other agent on the weekend was the key to getting our bid accepted over the higher offer received the following business day!
Again, thank you for making our move your #1 priority; your hard work on our behalf is appreciated every day."
My husband and I were looking casually for a larger home in Winchester for a few years by browsing thru the internet. We finally thought we would like to see a house listed by Coldwell Banker. That is when we contacted them and we had the good fortune of meeting Lorrie.
Our first impression of Lorrie was that she was very pleasant and not pushy. She said she wanted us to first get an education on houses in general and that we would have to see several houses to get a feel for what we wanted. In the course of a year Lorrie was very patient with us and showed us several houses indicating the pros and cons; if my husband liked a house, I did not like it and vice versa. Lorrie took the time and trouble to try to understand what we were looking for, which at times even we were not sure of.
Lorrie was persistent and continued to be very patient with us. And finally she found us our absolutely gorgeous dream house. Needless to say we put an offer on this house. Lorrie represented us as our buyers agent and worked hard with us through the negotiation process to an accepted offer; she outlined a step by step procedure and gave us several contacts with home inspectors and real estate attorneys so we could choose the people whom we were comfortable with. We finally got our "Taj Mahal"!
But wait our real estate story is not yet finished. We still had to sell our current home which we loved but had outgrown. Lorrie outlined in great detail the things we had to do to our house so that it would show well, which included painting and de-cluttering. She also took the trouble of getting an interior decorator to get the right color combination. She took the trouble of staging the house just right, so that the end product was simply beautiful. We received an offer for our house that stemmed from one of the Open Houses Lorrie organized; Lorrie helped us successfully negotiate this offer, and the whole process was handled seamlessly.
To summarize the entire buying and selling process with Lorrie: She was with us every step of the way and she helped us through all those stressful months, during the negotiation process. She was always just a phone call away. Her code of ethics is exceptionally high and she always wants to do the right thing. We were probably one of her more difficult clients, but her persistence, honesty, and dedication to her job won us over and gave everybody concerned a happy ending.
In conclusion, we recommend Lorrie highly and without reservations to anybody who wishes to buy or sell their house. We wish her every success as a realtor and would like to thank her once again for all her hard work."
