“When you are enthusiastic about what you do, you feel this positive energy. It’s very simple.”
Lorie was born in Eastern Washington on a heritage wheat ranch, where she learned the value of big dreams, hard work, home and community. She views her career in real estate as a way to help people achieve their own dreams of home and community.
Lorie’s intimate knowledge of Seattle neighborhoods started with her first home in the city, a cozy bungalow on Phinney Ridge where a view of the mountains welcomed her every morning and confirmed that she belonged. As she raised her family, they enjoyed life on Queen Anne and Capitol Hill, then in Leschi and Madrona, enjoying the unique features of neighborhoods throughout the city with family and friends.
Lorie’s familiarity with Seattle’s varied communities enables buyers to find homes in the neighborhoods that fit them best. Her avid interest in interior design and deep love for architecture keeps her on point with the most desirable styles and trends in today’s real estate market, helps buyers recognize possibilities in the properties they are considering, and enables sellers to showcase their treasured homes for the strongest returns on their investment.
Lorie knows that the strongest communities are built through caring neighbors who give back to the neighborhoods they love. She is passionate about social justice and is particularly focused on homeless teens, believing that every child deserves the strong support and sense of opportunity that home gave her and her own children. In addition to her work with teen-agers, Lorie cooks dinners monthly at Operation Night Watch, advises the board of a commercial business group, and is a member of the Seattle Historic Society, working to preserve the Seattle buildings and architecture that give our city its character and ground us in our shared history.
