There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.
So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.
I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.
We had a great experience with Lora. We felt like she was there for us through the whole selling process, she always responded to questions and concerns quickly. Little things that popped up in the closing did not faze her a bit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone, she's that good!
Lora is competent, knowledgeable and honest. She had out best interest as her goal and she made it happen. She will have us as customers and referrals for as long as she is in the business.
Lora is great, my wife and I really enjoyed working with her. She has many good qualities, but what stands out the most is her honesty.
LORA . . . .
AN IMPORTANT FACT IN MAKING LORA MY VERY FAVORITE BROKER AND THE THING I'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER:
LORA WORKED VERY HARD FOR LITTLE OLD ME TO CUT THE FINAL PRICE - AND, WITHOUT EXPRESSING THE FACT THAT IN BRINGING THE SELLING PRICE DOWN - SHE WAS CONSTANTLY LOWERING HER OWN COMMISSION, THE ONLY PAYMENT FOR ALL HER EXPENSE IN DRIVING, INVESTMENT OF VALUABLE TIME AND R EMARKABLE COMMON SENSE AND HIGH INTELLIGENCE.
I RECOGNIZE SUCH DEVOTION TO ONE SHE REPRESENTS VERY HONORABLELY - COMMANDING THE UTMOST RESPECT. MY LOVE IS BUILT ON DEEP RESPECT.
We just got the chance to look at everything in the goody bag you gave us. Thank you so much! That's so sweet of you. I did notice that everything is purple ;) even down to the hand soap! We are so grateful we chose you to help us with this process. You made everything so muchg easier and we knew we were in great hands. I'm sure we will be in touch and we will be taking lots of before and after pictures. Enjoy your weekend!
Lora provided excellent service during the entire process of locating and purchasing my first home. She was very helpful in discussing the positives and negatives of each house I looked at. Lora was very flexible in arranging showings and easy to contact when I had questions. She also did an excellent job of leading me through the negotiation and closing processes. I highly recommend Lora to help in the search for your new home!
It was an absolute privilege to go through the home buying process with Lora and her staff. She walked us through the very confusing and unfamiliar territory of real estate with ease and confidence. Lora took the time to explain every detail, provided qualified home inspectors, and worked countless hours finding the perfect home for our family. Her diligence paid off insuring we got a great home for our family. I cannot thank her and her real estate office enough for the care we received. They treated us like friends, not just clients.
Joey & Andre'a Weber-Boone
Very personal and professional. Thanks, Lora! You made me feel like your only client.
Thank you lora for all your hard work had a great experience buying my first home. It took about a year to find the right one but finally did it thank you.
Lora was excellent in getting us through the purchase of our house. She kept the focus and did not let us get sidetracked. There was a few occasions where she would contact us long after business hours should have been over to help the process. Her staff at the office was very kind and made us feel like friends, not customers. All in all I would buy all my property from here. Awesome person who does a great job!
Lora & Company treat you like Family. They are a available to answer any questions you may have and ones you did not know to ask. They work seamlessly with the other local Realator's to show any house on the market. I was very impressed how easy it was to buy a house and the extraordinary team that makes it happen.
Lora sold my acreage in Boone and traveled all the way to Indianola (75 miles away form Boone) numerous times to look at multiple homes and to assist me in buying my new house. She expertly advised me in selling of my house and buying of the new house. She protected me from a very difficult seller/agent when buying. We were in contact multiple times a day for weeks until my houses were settled. Her expertise got me near asking price for my old house and got me into my new house at a good rate. Lora, advised me on a grant that was available that I was completely unaware of. She acted on my behalf all the way though the process, guiding me the whole way and putting me at ease more then once. Lora is the only agent I will use, she cares for her customers like friends. I 100% recommend her for all your real estate needs!!
Eric & Rachel Irish-Indianola
Lora was super to work with. Infinitely patient and thoroughly professional as well as just a lovely person. She was happy to take care of every detail. Her office staff was also courteous, friendly and extremely competent. I am happy to recommend Lora & Company to anyone buying or selling a home in the area.
When we decided to place our home on the market we knew Lora & Company was going to represent us! Lora and her staff helped us with staging our house perfectly. We sold our house in just 5 days!! Very professional and easy to work with! If your looking to buy/sell Lora & Company is the way to go!
We had a great experience with Lora! She was so patient and willing to help! She made our buying experience something that we were very comfortable with! I will recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy.
Ashley Risius - Boone
We worked with Lora and "The Lora & Company Team" when we bought and then later sold our 1st home. Both experiences were very positive. Lora is very thorough and we felt very confident in all her work.
When we were house-shopping, Lora's professional knowledge and opinions were so valuable. When it came time to sell, there was never a doubt that the Lora & Company Team would do the best job helping us sell our house. We were more than satisfied with the result!
Matt & Emma Gray - Pennock, Minnesota - Formerly of Ogden
Lora is always available to drop current projects to research our requests & needs.
Lora is professional in how she dresses, talks, and represents us. She never "bashed" a property or homeowner for how they looked or lived. Instead of giving us her decision on which property to buy, she would give us points to consider - always leaving the decision up to us.
Lora was so patient in all texts & calls - never put-out by last minute questions we had or requests we wished for.
We love Lora!!
Sam & Tish Germer - Ogden
Lora treated us very well before, during, and after our home purchase. Though she had other clients, we felt like we were her primary concern. She catered to our schedule and never hesitated to go the extra mile. The path toward a first-time home purchase is never easy, but she made every effort to assist us in understanding the process. She made a complex and stressful situation manageable. We never questioned her ability to get us a great home for our growing family. Communication and availability is a must-have quality in a realtor and she never left us wondering. Every email was answered quickly and every call was returned. After the sale, we were treated like family. From the care package on move in day to the housewarming gift a month later, she never forgot about us. We will definitely call Lora for any of our future real estate needs.
Aaron & Kristin Thompson - Boone
We looked at multiple homes with Lora and she always gave us detailed information and what she thought they were worth. Lora worked great with us being first time home buyers. She always had answers to our questions and got back to us quickly when we had questions. She cared more about her customer satisfaction than she did about making top dollar.
Maddy & Tyler Wisecup - Ogden
We have worked with Lora on several occasions in trying to sell our house. Every time she had been honest, punctual and always willing to work us into her schedule, even if we were asking her last minute! We really appreciate all she's done for us in helping us finally sell our home and helping us find our new home. We would recommend her to any of our friends and family. Thanks for making our buying and selling process go as smoothly as it did! We are forever your customers!!
Steve & Megan Messler - Boone
It was very nice to hear from you. Both Nastaran & I are very grateful for all your help and patience.
As you know, we weren't completely sure of what type of house we wanted, which neighborhood, or even a fixed price range, when we started looking. What we really appreciate about working with you is your patience. Also, at all times, we were confident that you were on our side and didn't just want to sell us ahouse, but were helping us to find the house.
Thank you again for all your help & kindness.
Reza Montazami - Ames
Lora was always on top of things! Lora was patient, kind and helpful! Lora was quick! Lora is very knowledgeable! I would 100% highly recommend her! Lora was very easy to work with! Lora's staff are a great asset - helpful, nice, hard workers!
Awesome job, Lora & Company! Thanks so much!
Pamela & David Tolsdorf - Ogden
The Realtors were always kind, courteous and punctual. Always gave me feedback. Very helpful with pricing and how to show the house. I enjoyed working with Lora. Thank you for everything you’ve done.
Shirley Stevens, Newton
I would highly recommend Lora & Company to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Whether it's your first home or your retirement home, she can do it.
She listened to what we were looking for in a house and found exactly the one. She guided us through all the steps, answering all our questions, even the silly ones. Not only did she help us buy our new home, she also sold our old home. So we know from both sides.
Lora and her staff made the whole transition from start to finish a breeze.
Thank you, Lora!
Donn & Bob Ott, Boone
We contacted Lora to look at a building for sale in Boone. She was bewildered on why we would call her instead of the listing Realtor. It was because she had sent us a yearly calendar at Christmas time and did not hound us about buying or selling any of our properties. We appreciate her honesty and demeanor. When Lora didn't have the answer to our questions, she admitted that and immediately sought out answers and promptly got back to us. We would list and/or buy from Lora again!
Tish Germer, Ogden
We are first-time home buyers and were very much in the dark about the process or how to begin. Lora made it easy and painless. She is very knowledgeable and experienced. She is kind and truly cared about us and helping us weave our way through the home buying process. She had great, sound suggestions for everything involved in buying a home. She was very accommodating, patient and understanding. I would highly recommend Lora to anyone and everyone who is looking for a Real Estate Agent.
She is also a great Insurance Agent. She saved us money and we got better coverage than we had. Lora can meet all you home buying needs. She is amazing. We will use Lora again for any and all Real Estate needs we may have in the future.
Tracy & Cal Kirby
We have visited with and shared our home needs with several Realtors in Boone and Lora & Company was the only Realtor that helped us make our dreams a reality! We would recommend their services to all our friends and family.
Lora took the time to find out what our needs and wants were in a home for our family and worked hard to find us just the right house. Our son has special health needs and she was very understanding and patient and she helped us find just the perfect house. Thank you, Lora!
Kept me updated and informed through the whole process.
Very knowledgeable about the laws and rules.
Added a very personable touch.
Would recommend Lora & Company to others looking for Real Estate Services.
Thank you, Lora, for your help in finding me this wonderful acreage. It took me almost a year to find what I was really wanting. Your service throughout the year was great as well as your staff's even through your recent transition to your own company, everything was smooth. I will gladly recommend you to any family or friends of mine.
Thank you, Lora & Company
Lora was complying, dependable, honest, and dedicated in selling my condo. She worked equally as hard in getting me my house. There was no push or added pressure on selling or buying that was out of my standards. I would recommend that all needing a Realtor, give Lora a chance to provide what she gave me.
We are incredibly grateful that we were able to work with you on our first real estate purchase. We appreciate, more than you could know, all of the time, dedication, and thoughtfulness you put into this process. We highly valued your honesty and thoroughness, as we were anxious to be buying our first home.
The amount of time and energy you put into working with us made us feel we were a top priority of yours. Thank you for always being so prompt and thorough in your answers to our many questions! You were able to guide and direct us in a way I feel many realtors would not have taken the time for. We always felt that your main concern was helping us find the right house for our family, not the house you wanted us to buy for financial gain.
We are certain that any of our future real estate transactions will be handled with you as our realtor, and you have more than earned our recommendation to anyone seeking to buy or sell real estate in this area of Iowa.
Thank you again. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
Aaron & Jenny Wright, Boone
Lora was wonderful to work with. Extremely professional & personable. We had not had any luck with other realtors in the area and came across Lora’s name with Hunziker. She had great ideas on how to better show the house and within weeks had it sold! She knew how to work with the buyers and was very knowledgeable in the selling/buying process. She helped us step by step through it all! I would definitely recommend Lora for all your buying/selling needs!
Holly Connelly, Dallas, TX
We greatly appreciated your knowledge and insight into the real estate market. Your upbeat and charismatic personality was just the ticket for our home search. I've written some excerpts below:
Lora made us feel comfortable throughout the complete buying process and really made us feel at home and made us feel .welcome to the community.
Lora has an eye for structural integrity, house charm and design options. She brought a lot to our attention that we would have not noticed on our own.
Phillip & Kate Mueller, Ames
Thank you for your hard work in staying with the buyer of our property. As hard as he was to get a hold of, we appreciate your consistent effort. We appreciate your patience with sending doc's to North Dakota and being understanding in us getting them back to you. If we need your services again, we will for sure get a hold of you. Thanks again.
Tony & Sandi Miller, Ogden
I have worked with Lora on the purchase of land that I have build my home on, and she did an excellent job of assisting me on my negotiations and a first rate job of closing the deal. Lora was very friendly and professional, and she is an absolutely wonderful person to work with, and I would not think of dealing with anyone else but her for my real estate needs.
John Hood, Boone
Lora was very helpful in explaining how the process of buying your first home works. She was available and accommodating whenever we requested to tour homes or to answer questions. She provided us with information on financing. She was very thoughtful with giving holiday cards and celebrating our first year in our home. Lora has been great.
Erin Buxton, Ogden
Lora is very easy, pleasant, and professional to work with. She has sold three homes for our family and we wouldn’t’ hesitate to use her as a realtor again. Your property is in good hands with Lora Shreve.
Donna Sloan, Ogden
We appreciated all of Lora’s help with our real estate experience. She was professional and friendly. I appreciated how Lora stayed on top of everything. Thanks again for all your help and your friendship.
Cindy Troyer, Ames
Lora does an excellent job marketing your home, and she really knows what she’s talking about in this field. She has great people skills and wonderful to work with. We highly recommend Lora to everyone we know. She gets the job done, and was always available to help you! Everyone that we have referred to Lora has been just as happy as we were with her. I’ll never forget when Lora helped us move a bunch of big branches out of our yard to help make it look better for curb appeal. I just can’t say enough good things about Lora. We love her, and she goes the extra mile!
Stacey Naber, Maxwell
I’m really lucky we happened upon Lora for a realtor. She was very nice and helpful and I feel she tried her hardest for us, and not just for the sellers of the house. I love how she made several follow up calls after we purchased the house. Thankfully, I never had any problems, but it was nice to know her offer for help and support after the sale. I think what touched me the most was the letter and the closing statement that she sent 11 months later to help with taxes. She definitely follows though and doesn’t forget her clients after the sale – it made us feel special. I have told everyone about how wonderful she is and if we move, Lora will definitely be hearing from us. Thanks Lora!
Denise Motz, Ogden
I’ve greatly enjoyed working with you over the past few months. You’ve been a great help with life transition. Flexibility, knowledgeable, understanding, and professionalism are all key attributes for a successful real estate agent and I felt that you possess them all. I look forward to working with you again in the future. Thanks again for all your help.
Steve Stonehocker, Ogden
Lora was very prompt and on-time – returning all of our phone calls and answered all of our questions. After using 3 realtors, she was the only one that was able to sell our home.
Larry Bane, Boone
Our experience with Lora was great. We outlined our specifications for a home and the price range we needed to stay in, and in return we were shown houses that met our criteria. I know other realtors who always want to push you up to another price level by showing a “dream house” and hoping that you will spend more, but I never felt pressured by Lora. It was a rewarding experience, trouble free, and we ended up with the perfect home for our family.
Rhonda De Shong, Ogden
We contacted 3 realtors before working with Lora. Lora was the 1st realtor of the ones we contacted that showed interest in helping us. We asked the other realtors to contact us if properties came available that matched our requests, and Lora was the only one that contacted us back. We felt she was hard working and really interested in helping us find something. We would recommend her services to our friends and we would use her services again.
Monica Huyser, Boone
I don’t think I could have found a better realtor than Lora. She listened to what I was looking for and didn’t try to push or sell me something I didn’t want. She helped me with the little small and big problems I had after purchasing my home. To this day, she keeps in touch to make sure everything is OK. I haven’t heard “boo” from the other realtor who sold my home. I will defiantly use Lora for any future sells or purchases. She is very personal, up front and listens to your wants and needs.
Diane Motz, Ogden
Obviously with the amount of houses we have fixed up and sold – we have used several realtors. We are not slamming the others, but we would like to say that Lora was the most thorough and caring of them all. To use adjectives to describe Lora and her work – conscientious, honest, thorough, hard working, and caring. Lora kept in contact – letting us know what’s going on. When the time comes to put out house on the market – Lora Shreve will be the Realtor we use. She has earned our repeat business.
Gregg Elsberry, Boone
Lora was very knowledgeable and “right on” with what we expected. We liked how prepared and professional she was. We were truly impressed. We had heard horrors and were skeptical about the sales process, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. It was everything we wanted – fast, efficient and very helpful.
Carrie Runstad, Boone
Lora did an excellent job helping me with the sale of my home. I was new to the whole process and Lora explained everything step by step. She was always courteous and prompt in returning my phone calls and e-mails. I have recommended her and will do so again in the future.
Staci Lonergan, Boone
We owe Lora so much. She was such a big help, and made a scary, overwhelming process of home buying understandable. We appreciate Lora’s willingness to give us her Saturdays too. We will recommend her services to anyone who asks, and would be happy to call on her services again.
Ron & Anna Russell, Boone
As a first time home buyer, I could not have made a better choice than Lora Shreve. Lora truly looked out for my best interest by providing material to help educate me on what I could afford and she helped me every step of the way until we closed. I was fortunate to be able to work with someone so passionate about her job and I would recommend Lora to anybody. Thanks Lora.
John C. Sullivan, Boone
Your services were perfect. Everything happened so fast. You explained everything to us so we could understand all of it. We told everyone we knew who sold the acerage for us and how happy we were with it. Kenny and I will always send referrals to you.
Kenny & Lillie Longhenry
Friends-A great lady in the Real Estate business. Many connection with all people. Does a GREAT job. I'd recommend her to anyone selling or buying-anywhere in the area.
Lora serves her customers well. She keeps you informed when selling your property. She is always accessible to any questions you have. My family and I appreciate her as she has sold 4 properties for us in the last 4 years.
I extremely enjoyed my experience. Lora was very knowledgeable and informative about the whole process. She was very up front about what she thought and what she recommended. I definately recommend that anyone looking to buy or sell use Hunziker's services.
We greatly appreciate all of the time and effort you gave us to find our home. If Clint had not met you, we might never have learned about the different kinds of loans and that we could even be approved for a loan! We believe God brought you to us in our journey to find our home and we are very grateful! We have since put up a fence, bought a dog and Clint started paramedic school. So this has been a big year of change! Thanks again for everything you did for us!
