We love working with our customers and are happy for them when they buy their dream home or sell their current home so that they can move on to their next home. We greatly appreciate that they took the time to share their testimonials. Here is what they say about us.
I met Lori, through a new-home sales transaction before I added “Realtor” (since Lori listed my mother and law’s house I have joined Keller Williams) to my experience as a published interior designer.
It was pure kismet that we met, because my husband and sister-in-law were in need of a very unique and specialized realtor, who could navigate a plethora of complex obstacles in order to repair, renovate and sell my mother-in-law’s home. Lori and her team brought immense compassion and energy to the project of preparing this home for sale.
From a design perspective, I was thrilled to see such gorgeous and current finish and color selections for the home. They did not miss a mark, and indeed, saw great potential in a new space plan, that very few realtors and their teams would have been able to visualize, let alone execute. Although the home is situated in an older and well-established community, with many other beautiful homes surrounding it, the interior and exterior now boast a completely updated aesthetic, as well as so many improvements that are not visible to the eye, but essential for the peace of mind for today’s buyer. I can’t imagine that there is another home in the community that has had a “make over” of this magnitude and quality!
So, skills the team brought to the project would be professionalism, space-planning vision, grit to address every single surprise or development that is a part of any renovation, expert eye for the finishes and colors today’s buyer demands, and of course a strong understanding of the market to whom they are pursing.
“I was fortunate to be introduced to Keller Williams Realty by a colleague. I say “fortunate” as the entire Short Sale process, from the initial meetings with Lori Krause and her team, to the legal meetings were always very positive, although I was skeptical about a favorable outcome. You all were great to work with! Your team was always very responsive and helped me on many occasions look at my situation to make sound and timely decisions. Everyone I dealt with overall was extremely professional and worked really hard to close the Short Sale on my condo within a shorter time than I expected. Keller Williams Realty is a first class operation!
I would be pleased to recommend prospective customers to use your services.”
“I am writing on behalf of Ms. Lori Krause of Building Bridges Partners because she did such an excellent job as my real estate agent in the recent sell of my home. I was extremely delighted to find that Ms. Krause surpassed all of my expectation. When Ms. Krause came to my home, she was very friendly and highly professional. She provided me with a thorough overview of the real estate market generally and more specifically in my area. She also thankfully persuaded me to list my home in April before the spring market became very active, which gave me an edge in selling my current home.
Ms. Krause recommended that I use a professional stager, have my carpets and windows cleaned, and get my home on the market during the next week. Ms. Krause recommended a number of contractors to use, and spent a considerable amount of time thoroughly researching and analyzing the comparable sales to come up with the best selling price for my home. By using the contractors that Ms. Krause recommended, I was astonished to find that I was able to get my home ready in less than a week and on the market before the spring rush. All of the contractors were reasonably priced and did an excellent job. I was especially impressed by the stager that Ms. Krause recommended, who transformed my home into a much more cozy and appealing environment by moving furniture and a few pictures around. Ms. Krause immediately held an open house, which was when the buyer saw my home for the first time and quickly made an offer at full price. I know that if I had not followed Ms. Krause’s advice in all respects, I would not have had such a smooth and quick sell of my home.
Even after I accepted the offer, Ms. Krause ensured that the process leading up to the closing moved as smoothly as possible. ln fact, everything involved in my home sell worked like clockwork from the beginning until the end. I have sold many homes before, and I can honestly say that Ms. Krause is an excellent real estate agent in all respects. I highly recommend her representation to any buyers who want to have the best possible experience in selling their homes.”
“Lori and Amy are the team that sold our place in Herndon and rented our place in Arlington. They were incredibly responsive, helpful and flexible in meeting our demanding needs as we tried to accomplish things from 3000 miles away. They have our highest recommendation.”
