There is more to buying or selling a home than just the actual transaction. Lori has been forming bonds with customers since becoming a real estate agent over 30 years ago. Now she gets to serve second and third generation families. As you have probably noticed, there are basically two kinds of REALTORS® in this business: the kind who just want to get the transaction done, collect the commission, and move on; and, the kind who are truly committed to ongoing client satisfaction, before, during, and especially after the home is purchased. Lori’s focus has always been on being that second kind of REALTOR®, and since 90% of her business is from past clients and referrals, she finds being that kind of REALTOR® is more satisfying - both personally and professionally.
Real estate is a large financial and legal transaction that can affect your life for years to come. Considering the potential for large financial and legal risk, it only makes sense to work with someone knowledgeable and trustworthy.
Don’t trust your largest investment to just anyone! Call Lori direct, she actually answers her phone and you speak to her, not an assistant. Lori has been proudly serving customers in the Brantford area as a full-time sales rep since 1988, so there are more wrinkles in the face, but less in the transaction. Give her a call at 519-770-9890, it may be the best move you will ever make :)
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.“
Q&A With Lori:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?
No two days are ever the same. I love unwrapping the mystery behind the façade of each front door and getting to know each client’s story.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF SELLING REAL ESTATE?
It’s a great compliment that after over 3 decades selling homes, that former client’s children and grand-children are now calling me. I love building lifelong relationships with my amazing clients. It’s just such an incredible feeling to play an integral part in someone’s major life decision, for which I am truly grateful.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?
I like waking up at sea, so cruising is exciting. Unpacking once and seeing several historic ports and fine dining every night is my idea of a holiday
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?
Books: I love courtroom drama, anything by John Grisham will do. I’ve read many books by Stephen King...his earlier works especially appeal to my twisted side.
Movies: Pretty in Pink is one of my favs, I am an eighties girl at heart!
Shows: Who doesn’t love Survivor?
Bands: I like changing up the tempos when my mood changes. I don’t think there is any band specifically that fits my style.
WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I actually love a rainy day, it makes me feel like cooking.

Lori never failed to communicate through every step of the process and kept us well informed. From our experience, we feel that Lori has definitely raised the bar in performance and integrity and should be the standard for all other real estate agents to achieve.”
“Lori is the best! Lori sold me this house 24 years ago. And so I remember very well, the meticulous attention to details and professionalism that she provided to me at that time. She continued with me today again, as her client in the same high energy manner, as she did back then. While I have other acquaintances who are local realtors, I knew who I wanted to sell my house and she, of course, did not disappoint.”
