Originally from Alberta, Canada...Home of the "Alberta Clipper!" While living in Canada, I enjoyed a previous career in New and Custom Built Homes as a business partner, as well as Sales and Marketing.
I also enjoyed the restaurant business as a Dairy Queen Franchise Owner, so I know how to make lots of "Sweet Treats!" In 2005, I left my beloved family and friends, traded in my snowblower and ice scraper for a garden rake and shovel, and moved to the Raleigh area. My previous experience as a Home Builder, as well as Sales and Marketing, led me to a career in Real Estate, which I truly enjoy. I love everything about owning a home, such as design and decorating, landscaping, gardening and bird watching.
I also love meeting and helping people to make their dreams of home ownership come true!
I am happily married to a native New Yorker for 25 years, have lived in New York City and Long Island, as well as Poughkeepsie NY. I am in love with this area of North Carolina, perfectly nestled between the mountains and beaches just a short drive away. No more winters for me!
My charitable interests include St. Jude's Hospital, CMN, and Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption (Wendy's Wonderful Kids).
Lorrie is a very good agent, she helped us to find our first house, she was listening to our needs and requirements when we doing the house search, she has the knowledge of the market, she showed us many houses and she was there when we needed her,
All what we can say about her is that we gain a new friend to the family.
Lorrie is an amazing person. She doesn’t connect with you as a Real Estate Agent, but as a honest friend. I could not have bought house without her help. She guided us through the entire process so efficiently. One thing which touched my me, let me share here, We were looking at a house that needed some work, we were almost decided that this is the house, Lorrie went to look at the house again and came back with the issue whih would have caused us to spend way more in fixing the issue. I have never seen anyone with this kind of dedication. She is so invested with her clients that she doesn’t remember how much extra miles she puts in just to make sure we get exceptional service and best suited house. I can go on and on about her but to sum up my experience with her - She is the BEST !!
My family and I recently moved from out of state to the Triangle area. We needed an agent who would work with us from 600+ miles away and in person on the occasional weekends. She exceeded our expectations throughout the entire process, from showing us properties, to the offer negotiations, through the closing and beyond. She is professional, friendly, and an amazing person to work with. Not only did she help us find and get into a new home in a very short time frame, but she went out of her way to show us the area and recommend some local hangouts that we would like. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a home in the area!
