Lori Powers is an amazing New York agent, and my mother and I recommend her with the absolute highest regards. I am a real estate agent in Washington, DC and I needed someone to sell my mother's apartment at 11 East 92nd Street in Manhattan. We interviewed at least six agents, as I wanted to find someone who would look after my mother's needs up in NY, as I would if I were there. Finding Lori was a real gift. My mother's apartment needed a significant amount of work to present at its best, and Lori supervised everything on our behalf. She got us reasonable quotes from contractors and painters, managed their work, and coordinated the renovation seamlessly with the co-op board. Lori is a hands-on, detail-oriented, fast responder. Within three days of listing, not only did she bring my mom an exceptional offer without contingencies, but she then helped navigate all of the steps from ratification to closing. Selling in NY is complicated, and this was a home my family loved, so it was emotional too. Lori took the stress out of the process, and my mom is happy. For that, I will always be grateful.
