"I listen to clients and strive to make their experience smooth and rewarding," says Lottie. This philosophy is evident by the attention she gives her clients before, during and after a transaction, to her knowledge of the market, to her success in negotiations, and to the detail and management she provides throughout the process."
Lottie received her real estate license in 1996 after having worked in real estate related activities for over 15 years. After experiencing tremendous satisfaction working with seniors she earned the Seniors Real Estate Specialist® title in 2007. While part of her business in focused on the mid-Peninsula and Silicon Valley, she also has a sweet spot for helping buyers realize their San Francisco dream, often a condominium for either a full-time residence or a pied-a-terre, and working with sellers to help achieve top dollar in a reasonable length of time.

"We've worked with 5 other agents over the past several years, and Lottie has been the best of them. We first learned about Lottie through a recommendation from a longtime and trusted friend.
We worked with Lottie for about a year in one of the toughest markets for buyers in decades and one of the most difficult markets in the nation. We appreciated that she never pressured into making a bid (unlike a lot of agents) and was very responsive to our questions, which is a huge help in the midst of the craziness of deciding whether to bid or not.
We like that Lottie has been operating in San Carlos/Belmont for a very long time and sometimes had good working relationships with sellers' agents, which improves communication during the bidding process. She was also active selling properties for other clients, which helped give us better insight into the current status of the local housing market.
Lottie provides great service that is friendly and super patient (we changed our minds a lot as we got more experienced in our search and prices fluctuated a lot during a year of looking for a place). Plus, our little one liked her a lot which I think is a sign of a good heart.
She's got a good list of contractor references, and her recommendation for a carpet vendor was right on - we were very happy with him and his prices were pretty good since he didn't have a costly retail storefront to support. " - Philip L.
"We recently sold our home of 35 years and I couldn't be more grateful that we chose Lottie as our real estate agent. Her knowledge of the market and just what we should do to make the house more salable was right on. She knew just the people to call on to help us with painting, gardening, staging, inspections, etc. She always made sure, however, that whatever we chose to do was our decision- even if we didn't agree with her. This was a stressful time in our lives, and she was wonderful at being calming support in things relating to the house sale, encouraging us all the way. She brought all the papers that needed to be signed during that time over to the house and explained everything so we had total trust in what we were signing.
When it finally came time to put the house on the market, she carefully researched what was happening in our neighborhood right then and priced the house well. In less than a week, we had 6 offers, all above asking price and the house was sold to a family that loved it.
Lottie is a very conscientious, hard-working, knowledgeable and extremely caring person. I would give her 10 stars if the limit weren't 5."Laurie C.
