Home Ready Tip
If you're planning to sell your home, and it is in moderately distressed (dated bathrooms and kitchen, generally rough around the edges, but by no means a dump), average, or better condition, simply add a fresh coat of paint and new carpet if necessary and get it to market.

Homes are in such short supply that almost anything which is priced right will sell. You can't get full market value if your home is dated, but you probably won’t make back the investment to do any major upgrades either. So, save yourself the effort and cost of renovations, and you will net ahead in the end. 
Thinking of selling but have a question? Reach out to me anytime–I'm always here for you.

If you didn't know, I LOVE TO READ. Each month, I'll be sharing some of my favorite books with you. Let's get started!
I read this little book, How the Irish Saved Civilization, by Thomas Cahill years ago, and it made a significant impact on how I view the rather fun St Patrick’s holiday. Saint Patrick was a Roman Citizen–yes, a real person–who was kidnapped by “barbarians” and taken as a slave to Ireland in the 5th century. During his six grueling years of captivity, his faith grew. He eventually escaped but later returned to the land of his captures as a missionary. He is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland and most likely converting the Pics and Anglo-Saxons.

Later, as the Roman Empire was overrun by barbarians and libraries and learning on the continent were forever lost, the Irish Monks and scribes maintained the very record of Western culture by copying manuscripts of Greek and Latin writers, both pagan and Christian. St. Patrick’s work instilled a sense of literacy and learning that created the conditions that allowed Ireland to become the “isle of saints and scholars,” thus saving Western Civilization.
Client Reviews
Lori has been nothing short of amazing. Attentive, driven, and on top of the REALTOR® game. As a first-time homebuyer, I was unsure of the steps to follow, but Lori was there with me every step of the way! She knew my “must-haves” and opened me up to new possibilities. More importantly, Lori was able to negotiate my wants in this very tough housing market.

If you are looking for an attentive and driven REALTOR® with great attention to detail, Lori is it!
