"Excellent agent. Went the extra mile to ensure the house was ready to be shown. She is a wonderful, warm and caring individual. I could not be more pleased the way she went out of her way to be available when workmen came and needed supervision. I highly recommend Lori. ""-Hubert - Seller- Chappaqua NY

"Lori is a delight to work with— smart, savvy and generous with her time and knowledge. She is a consummate professional who understands the marketplace better than any other agent we’ve ever worked with. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants an expert to guide you through the daunting process of buying or selling a home. There is no one better." ""-Lisa and Rich, Sellers - Chappaqua NY

"Lori is the absolute best! We were pretty uncertain what exactly we wanted in a home, but Lori took that in stride and trekked all over NY with us to help us find the perfect place. She's a great mix of very knowledgeable, hard-working, personable, and also protective of her clients. We really valued knowing that she didn't want to just sell us a home – she wanted to help us really find a dream home, and avoid buying something we wouldn't be happy with. She had our back through the whole process, across multiple dimensions (eg it comes in handy that she's a former lawyer, and that she's an experienced renovator). I have no idea where she finds the time to do everything she does, but she definitely goes above and beyond being always available by phone, or to pull records local building departments, or to come to multiple showings of the same house when her clients are being annoying and ambivalent :-). In sum, I would highly recommend that you NOT work with Lori because I want her time all to myself next time we hire her."-Aaron and Cadran

"Lori represented us faithfully and skillfully with her unbeatable blend of sharp negotiation, local expertise, warm personality, indefatigability, responsiveness, and professionalism. Lori was always on our side. In an extremely competitive market, Lori helped us win a home we adore, below asking price! Some details: (1) During the initial hunting (and throughout) Lori was always available and ready to talk homes. She listened to our needs and showed us properties that met them. Lori is indefatigable -- she genuinely seems to love her job and it shows. Because she knows Westchester as a long-term local, she was able to find us homes we had not noted online on our own. (2) Lori always helped us put our best foot forward, in viewings, bids, negotiations. She diffused many a situation and we were later told that an important part of our bid was that our broker was respectful and responsive, and knew the process of how to move to closing quickly. We could tell Lori was always fighting for us. (3) Lori went above and beyond. With her local connections, she helped us map out our plans for the house in preparing for the bid, and after too. She is highly regarded in the community. She quickly became our "ambassador" to the new town (friends, schools, contractors, etc). (4) Perhaps most importantly, Lori balances her sharp real estate mind and strong skill of negotiation with kindness, intuition, and patience." - Anna and Jens, Chappaqua, NY

"Lori was fantastic and helped us find our dream home! We were working under a tight deadline when our old house sold right before the holidays and she helped us get into a rental so we would be ready to hit the spring market. We were initially open to seeing everything from contemporary to traditional in a wide area. Lori was patient and incredibly knowledgeable, and helped us to identify what we were really looking for in a home and location when we couldn't articulate it ourselves. We absolutely recommend Lori!" - Jennifer M, South Salem, NY 

"Lori was amazingly helpful. She had learned our needs and resources and laid out a number of listings that would fit. Lori guided us through nuances of taxation and multiple regulations that make NYS a difficult place to navigate. I deeply appreciate Lori's work as our agent" - Vitaliy and Yelena, Briarcliff, NY

"Lori guided us through the process of prepping and listing out house with professionalism, grace and humor. We needed to sell quickly because of a new job opportunity. She helped get the house ready, and knew exactly how to price it in a competitive market. In less than a week, her acumen paid off with a solid full-price offer; and she was there through closing. I highly recommend her services." - Danna and Bruce, Chappaqua, NY

"Lori went above and beyond in selling our home. Her advice was invaluable, and our home sold the first weekend over asking. She helped us through the entire process from removing our oil tank to arranging to have electrical issues resolved." - Rich and Heidi, Mt Kisco, NY

"Lori did an exceptional job helping to sell my house. She offered critical advice in making my home more marketable and was always available when I had a question. She was always completely professional, respectful and personable. Her advice made a hard to sell property sell within a reasonable amount of time. Lori was unquestionably a delight in many ways. She really knew the local real estate market and offered suggestions in a very positive manner that were very helpful. I always admired her good sense and people skills." - Leslie

"Lori Hoffman-Chlapowski treated us like friends. She was honest, insightful, and seemed genuinely excited to show us every home. Where other agents would have lost patience, she dug in and found us the perfect home. We love her!" - Jennifer and Lior - Croton on Hudson NY

"I can’t praise Lori enough! She found our family a home amongst this challenging market. She listened, she was patient, and ultimately persistent in pursuing the home we wanted. She put together a full team through her various Compass contacts and we had a very smooth contract and closing process. Her knowledge of the local market is extensive as is her thoroughness during showings and inspections....like engineer level of thoroughness! A true professional in every sense. My husband and I can confidently recommend Lori!" - Elise and Christian - Briarcliff Manor NY

"Lori goes beyond the call of duty. She knew what our tastes were after one day of showing a few homes. She is also personable and doesn't rush. Call her!" - Sana and James, Chappaqua, NY

"Amazing experience all around. Lori is a true professional and was extremely thorough. Our search was interrupted by the pandemic and Lori didn't miss a beat--making sure that everyone's safety was prioritized and that we were looking at the right houses for our family. In the end, we got the house we wanted. Can't ask for more from an agent." - Ryan and Anna - Croton on Hudson

"Lori was on point with everything we needed to get a house in a town we knew very little about. She stuck with us over a year and put up with our very specific choices about our home. In the end,we found exactly what we wanted, and she made the process seamless. We are so happy we found Lori, and elated at our home purchase!" - Chris and Karen - Chappaqua, NY

"Lori is the most intelligent, thorough, dedicated, and indefatigable agent I could imagine working with. After buying one house and selling another with Lori, we were amazed and thrilled at the high level of commitment and personal attention she gave to us. She worked tirelessly on our behalf each and every step to get the transactions completed. I highly recommend Lori - she is simply the best!" - Victoria and Gary - Croton on Hudson, NY
