We were so thankful to have Lori Claussen help us find & buy our very first home. We know it’s something Lori does for people all the time (because of her wisdom & experience), but for these people, it meant so very much for to have her on our side. This is a dream come true for us & we owe it to Lori!Jennifer & Matthew Lincoln
My mother recently moved to an independent living facility for the elderly. This left me with an entire household of goods to distribute and dispose of, as well as selling the house. The procedure was complicated and time consuming. The house was in need of repairs as it had not been updated in 21 years. The thought of doing all this was exhausting. Thankfully our real estate agent, Lori Claussen, was able to point us in the right direction for all these things which took much of the confusion out of the situation.
The communication with Lori was excellent. The advertising was comprehensive. The closing could have been complicated since I was acting as POA for my mother but with Lori’s help it went very smoothly. It was an excellent working relationship. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a pleasant, intelligent, comprehensive agent to sell their home or property.Karen McCay
I refer everyone looking to buy or sell their home to Lori. Lori is very thorough and you will get all of your questions answered promptly. Lori was an appraiser for many years before entering the real estate business therefore she is very knowledgeable about values of homes, land, etc. You will have a great experience working with Lori whether buying or selling! Very responsive and helpful.Karen Hoppmann Harris
After chatting a bit, Cody and I realized there wasn't anything we could come up with that you could have improved on or done differently. From our initial interaction with you, we were struck by how quickly you responded and not only that, but the content with which you responded. It didn’t seem to matter time of day, we felt you were available and we were never a bother, putting our minds and questions at ease. House Hunting while living out of town several hours away could have been extremely stressful but the quantity and quality of homes you put in front of us made it easy. We don’t feel that we’ve left any gems unturned. As an added bonus, it was real peace of mind with your appraisal experience; helping us really evaluate homes and knowing you were going to ensure the home we bought was of true value. We knew quickly you were sharp, hard-working, and available, we didn’t know how fun you’d be to work with and what a great resource you would be getting us connected to the neighborhood. You truly went above and beyond for us and we appreciated your genuine interest in us finding the right home.Thanks so much and kind regards to you and the family!Ellis & Cody Holderbecker
