Born and raised on the Mid Peninsula, Lori grew up in real estate. With a Mom as a real estate agent and a Grandfather in real estate development on the Peninsula, she grew up going to Open Houses. She attended Menlo Park's Oak Knoll and Hillview schools, followed by Castilleja High School and Claremont McKenna College. After co-founding a tech company in 2001 which created tools for real estate brokerages, Lori jumped into the industry herself and hasn't looked back since.
Lori loves the combination of negotiations, project management, and interpersonal skills needed to successfully serve her buyers and sellers. She puts herself in the shoes of each client, and works tirelessly to create win-win situations. Whether it's negotiating the purchase of a home against 3 other potential buyers or ironing out the more mundane details during escrow, Lori's abilities to multi task and prioritize issues is high. She has a strong intuitive sense. She is straight forward, honest, and holds integrity in the highest regard in her transactions and ongoing relationships with her clients.
Lori resides in Redwood City, is married to a real live rocket scientist, and loves being Mom to three fabulous children, all in Redwood City public schools. She participates in the Redwood City Superintendent's Parent Council, her church (Peninsula Covenant Church), and swims with the Peninsula Community Center's Master's Swim Team. One day, she'll join a water polo team (she was an All American polo player in college), but for now she'll use her competitive nature to help her buyers and sellers get where they want to go.
Lori wants to be the real estate agent for life for each of her clients.

5 Star: ★★★★★ "Our family recently decided to sell our long time home in Redwood City, and the best decision we made during this time of transition was to pick Lori Burrows Warren as our real estate agent. Throughout the entire sales process-from listing to staging, conducting fabulous open houses and negotiating the final contract details-Lori was knowledgeable, sensitive and meticulous. She had our complete trust and confidence during every aspect of our real estate transactions and we would recommend her services to anyone who wants the best possible real estate experience. Lori Burrows Warren is simply fantastic! - S."
5 Star: ★★★★★ "Lori is amazing to work with! I trust her, she is very careful, thorough and is always available to help. She is ready to think out of the box and explore all opportunities. She knows the areas and property dynamics so well, I highly recommend Lori, she is also a lovely person and a joy to work with! " - K.M.
5 Star: ★★★★★ "Looking back on the lightning fast sale of our house and complicated purchase of a new one, I can't think of anyone else that could have gotten us through that process. Lori is a fantastic combination of optimist, planner, cheerleader, and realist. She helped us get our house market ready in 7 days by arranging a flurry of vendors and contractors and telling us *exactly* what we needed to do. She helped us get an offer for *exactly* what we needed 3 days before we left on family vacation. She helped us beat out 2 other offers on our new house when we had a contingency (big no-no in this hot market). She worked while we were on vacation to make sure both transactions went through. When things hit the fan, she stepped in, made a plan, and saw it through to the end.
I could not be more impressed with Lori's work and am sad we will never get to work with her again since she found us our dream house. But you can! And you should " - M.P.
5 Star: ★★★★★ "In a word, Lori Burrows Warren is AMAZING. My husband and I both bought and sold a home this summer, in this insane, super-intense Redwood City real estate market. Both my husband and I have demanding careers and we have two small children, but Lori worked around our schedules and was incredibly engaging with our kids as well, so much so that our 2-year old continues to ask for her even though we're done with the process. Lori walked us through the process of prepping, staging, and selling and had a network of experts (gardener, handyman, stager, etc.) that she recommended along the way. We ended up getting about $100K over what we'd anticipated for the home we sold, which allowed us to purchase the home we'd been dreaming of (oversized lot on the end of a cul-de-sac in a beautiful, family-friendly neighborhood). Lori knows Redwood City like the back of her hand. Once we decided on a home, she advised us on what to bid in this crazy market, worked basically 24 hours straight to get in a clean and complete offer that we made literally one day after the home went on the market. And we are THRILLED with our new home. All this to say, I cannot recommend Lori more highly. If I could give 100 stars I would!" - I.D.
