Read what a few of Lori’s past clients have to say about their experiences working with her:
“Lori Takos sold our home in less than a day for more than the asking price! How amazing is that! We recommend Lori Takos as a professional, full time, very experienced Realtor that folks should hire. Lori was our Realtor for our new home build and the Realtor for the sale of our 33 year old home. The transactions were wonderful for us. We did not have to do a double move. Lori helped us time the two moves perfectly! Lori will be there for you. You will gain a great friend! Lori Takos – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!”
"A trustworthy, honest, reliable, professional and hard-working realtor is hard to come by these days. Lori Takos has been our realtor for several different investments and has easily displayed each of these characteristics. With the ever changing market, Lori has always stayed in tune with the trends and has been very helpful in making the right move. Lori has proven countless times her commitment to us with great communication, easy availability, and proactive search for homes. She has always been sure to keep our best interest in mind with all transactions, and has advocated for us greatly."
"My experience through selling and buying a home was a roller coaster journey. Lori was there with me through the entire process. From the 1st day of taking pictures of the house I wanted to sell and putting the sign in the front yard, to assisting me through the showings and feedback. She always had a smile on her face and was so helpful through every bit of the experience. She never once made me feel like my questions/concerns were small and helped share her knowledge to keep me informed. Even though there were highs and low through this journey, Lori was there with me holding my hand and encouraging me. Through the buying process of a new house, she was able to help select homes that she knew I would be interested in and small area I wanted to be in as soon as they came on the market. She was also very well connected with other people in the business to help me with my loan process, home inspection and remedial procedure. Being able to utilize those connections helped streamline things and count on them to help me too. Lori is a one stop shopping kind of realtor. It isn't her job, it is her calling. She has a passion for connecting people with their future homes and making the daunting experience as pleasant as possible. Thank you Lori for EVERYTHING you did to get me through things and into the new house that is now called home. I would not have been able to do it without you!"
“About three years ago our family started to feel the strain of outgrowing our space. I asked Lori to come and look through our home and give me some advice for how to get ready to list in the next 6-8 months. I can’t recommend that enough, she was so encouraging about the things that would be good selling points and what items truly needed our attention, and which ones weren’t worth worrying about. It really made an overwhelming task seem achievable. She was never pushy or demanding through the whole process, but consistently available and responsive with good solid advice for us. Fast forward to listing time, there weren’t many homes available on the market. With only 1 ½ baths in the home we wanted to sell we knew the process might not be easy. Lori helped us get through our transition as stress free as possible! She helped our family of 5 with young kids through the process of our home being shown and was very flexible, understanding, and encouraging every step of the way. Because she was so readily available to us, it eliminated lag time in our process, which was crucial in a competitive market. When the house we wanted became available Lori got us in so quickly for a showing and had our offer written that afternoon, which made all the difference to ending up where we wanted to be when we wanted to be there. We are now happily in a home that has everything we were looking for and was under budget in the perfect location. Lori has an excellent understanding of the market, potential problems in homes that you are looking at that you might not notice, and a down to earth realistic approach. She communicates with other agents/inspectors/family members/everyone you encounter along your journey with professionalism and courtesy. We felt comfortable and confidant knowing that Lori wanted the best for us. If Lori is your Realtor you will find yourself hearing stories from friends or family about things that are going wrong in their process of moving and thinking that would not be happening if Lori was involved!!! I’ve recommended her many times and if we ever need to move again I will absolutely be coming to Lori.”
“Lori is a sincere believer in doing the right thing for her clients. No high pressure, rather an insatiable thirst for finding the right home for the right people - together with negotiating the best price to be had. I would place the highest of confidence in her in any future real estate ventures, even in this very difficult real estate market."
