About Lori
“Meticulous.” “Whip smart.” “Tireless.” “Huge heart.” “No nonsense.” Just a few of the ways Lori’s clients typically describe her.

A 15-year veteran of NYC real estate, she has a proven track record of success in all market cycles and consistently exceeds client expectations as a specialist in townhouses, condos, and co-ops in Brownstone Brooklyn.

And now, as an owner of a beloved tiny house compound in The Catskills, Lori is thrilled to expand her team’s capabilities—and share the joys of upstate living—by representing the Hudson Valley with a specialty in and around Saugerties, Woodstock, Kingston and New Paltz.

Known for being incredibly responsive and flawlessly prepared, she is a consummate problem solver and skilled communicator, who relies on good humor and positivity to make what can be a stressful process more enjoyable.

Whether working with buyers or sellers, Lori prioritizes human connection and customer service above all else. "Working with buyers, I get to be part of an exciting journey that ends with them finding a great home—the place where they'll create all new memories," she explains. "With sellers, I'm driven to handle every aspect with obsessive attention to detail to assure a seamless process and the best possible price, safeguarding their investment."

In 2020, she was recognized as one of America's Best Real Estate Professionals by REAL Trends and ranks among the top 1.5 percent of agents in the country.

In her free time, Lori loves to pursue her many passions—from architecture and international travel, to her boundless love of nature and animals, to indulging her ice cream obsession, to singing at the top her lungs, something that draws on her theater background and which nearly saw her make the Broadway cast of Rent (really, ask her).
