Client Reviews of Lori Rowe

"Thank you for your work and emotional support during the process, and for making it fun to look at houses. I walked in from vacation and had a huge smile on my face, remembering what it’s like to actually love my house!

Keep in touch please."

~Marikaye – Lake Zurich


"Lori…As I sit here today and reflect on the success of the sale of of our home, a simple phrase comes to mind; job well done and thank you! As you may recall, you had a role in our first home purchase in our relocation from Dallas to North Barrrington. Over the years our family friendship developed in the neighborhood, the desert and on the golf course. We clearly related to you as both a friend and one who is very good at what she does. Your email of rltrmom says it all.

When we made the decision to relocate to our Dallas home, you were most helpful to assess the Dallas market and you kept our dreams private. As you know, we interviewed three firms to represent our family in the sale off 66. I remember that day to this day. As you may recall, we clearly made the right choice. Yes our friendship was a foundation; but you were clearly the partner of choice for this assignment.

As we saw over time, the economy changed rapidly. Selling a $2 million home is not like selling a $100,000 home. We stayed together through it all. You were clearly the jack of all trades here, realtor, marketing, light bulb changer, snow poles, landscaper, alarm person and over all care taker.

As I close, I say thank you and good buy realtor and hello friend."

~Steve – North Barrington


"Lori…When I chose you as our real estate agent back in April, I knew that you were one of the best. I knew that if anyone could sell our house it would be Lori Rowe. I knew that you were well respected in your field and held in high regard by neighbors, colleagues and community. What I did not know at the time was the extent of your effectiveness. You became more than my “agent” and I sense that this is the manner that you treat all of your clients. From helping with the “staging” of my house (even if it meant moving furniture), to scheduling a respectful number of showings in a market such as ours, to being my cheerleader in times of seller frustration, and even providing a shoulder to cry on as I took on the challenges of my present situation. You are definitely the “whole” package. I am grateful for your never ending energy and the personal touch you added to everything you did."

~Bernie – Deer Park
