"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

"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 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

24 Heathcote Drive | Mount Kisco NY

Rarely does a modern home successfully evoke the grace and subtle grandeur of an earlier era. Designed by noted Greenwich architect Paul Stephan Marchese on the site of the former carriage house of the Stuyvesant Fish Estate, this exquisite ivy-draped brick and limestone French colonial on over three lushly landscaped acres faithfully reflects the craftsmanship of days gone by. From the sweeping curved lines and dormers of the cedar roof and specially pointed aged brick exterior with limestone trim and accents, to the hand hewn arched entry doors, custom millwork, hand cut floors and custom curved windows, no detail is overlooked. A dramatic curved architectural staircase showcases the light-filled foyer with french doors and floor-to-ceiling windows. The Phyllis Coon designed kitchen with marble counters, walnut island, Italian glass tile backsplash and luxury appliances opens to a light-filled sunroom with more custom millwork, imported antique cabinetry and marble wet bar. The dining room is warmed by a fireplace with an antique limestone mantle and extensive concealed custom inset cabinetry. An inviting family room beckons with limestone fireplace, french doors and millwork adjoining library. Light floods the living room with floor to ceiling windows and french doors opening to the patio beyond. The primary bedroom features a limestone mantle fireplace, two balconies with french doors, and ensuite bath with its own balcony. Two bedrooms have french doors to private balconies and the guest suite features an ensuite bathroom. Work and recreation spaces abound. A first floor office with separate side entrance and powder room provides a completely private workspace. A fully finished basement with large billiard room, wet bar, gym, half bathroom and office are perfect for relaxing and working. The light-filled, finished walk up attic provides additional space for working from home or play.
