Lori has always been drawn to the water. After a lifetime of teary “until next summer” goodbyes to her beloved ocean, she and her family decided it was time to make their dreams come true and move from Atlanta, Georgia to the beach.  Though they left their oldest child behind to attend the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!), they have not regretted their decision to move to Wilmington for one second.

Lori had the privilege of volunteering at one of the greatest children’s hospitals in the United States for several years. She has a knack for helping families recognize the goodness and be at peace during some of life’s most stressful situations. She is a Certified Life Coach. She loves to encourage others to go after what truly brings them joy. Lori’s love to see others happy led her to become a Real Estate Broker.  After being a client of Just For Buyers Realty, Lori knew she wanted to become an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent and there was no other firm for her.

Lori loves a challenge! She assesses each client’s wants and needs individually, because no two are the same. She epitomizes integrity, energy, hard work, creativity, and professionalism in every detail of your real estate transaction. As a Broker, she will anticipate potential issues and be prepared with a solution in order to make your home search and the buying process as seamless, stress-free, and enjoyable as possible. Lori prides herself on her communication skills, so you will never be left wondering where you stand. Working with Lori, you will be her top priority and feel like you are her only client!

Why you became an EBA:
Finding THE home for my clients is the part of real estate that excites me most!

Every person in our firm is unbelievably knowledgeable, helpful, encouraging, generous, share each other’s excitement, and genuinely good people. Not to mention we are the only Exclusive Buyers agency around.

What you love most about living in Southeast NC:
We are the total package of beach and city life rolled in to one.

Favorite local attraction:
Beach, beach, beach, and more beach!

Atlanta, GA

First Job:
I was a hero. I saved children from being smothered in the ball pit at Chuck E Cheese.

Perfect Day:
In no particular order: beach, motorcycle, tubing with family, picnic, getting 10 homes under contract, and someone cleaning my house.

Proudest moment:
It’s a toss-up: watching our oldest daughter graduate, sending our youngest daughter to Australia, watching our son rule the basketball court, or the moment I realized we were actually living our dream.

Favorite neighborhood:
Downtown Wilmington’s Historic District

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

My husband. Chad has mastered the art of balancing a successful business and family, is a true leader, freely gives his advice and time, is the most amazing friend, husband and father, and pretty much the best person on the planet.

People say I am….:
Positive, easygoing, go above and beyond for others, and totally in love with my life.

Favorite family beach:
Fort Fisher because of the low traffic and scenery.

Favorite “Date night”:
Dinner, live music, a stroll on Riverwalk downtown or one of our beautiful beaches, and an evening cruising on the motorcycle.

Best local activity for families:
Dancing the nights away at Greenwood Lake Amphitheatre’s summer concert series.
