My mother recently moved to an independent living facility for the elderly. This left me with an entire household of goods to distribute and dispose of, as well as selling the house. The procedure was complicated and time consuming. The house was in need of repairs as it had not been updated in 21 years. The thought of doing all this was exhausting. Thankfully our real estate agent, Lori Claussen, was able to point us in the right direction for all these things which took much of the confusion out of the situation. The communication with Lori was excellent. The advertising was comprehensive. The closing could have been complicated since I was acting as POA for my mother but with Lori’s help it went very smoothly. It was an excellent working relationship. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a pleasant, intelligent, comprehensive agent to sell their home or property. “

Lori was aggressive in her marketing and in her pricing of the home - the result was that the house sold in a very timely manner for as much as we could expect given current market conditions. She kept us well-informed of what was happening. Overall, we were very pleased with the whole experience.

Lori Claussen, not only was our Realtor, she became our friend. Her knowledge of the local area, her ability to connect us with people who could help us after the purchase, and her attention to detail, are just the beginning of the attributes that make her a great Realtor in the Charleston area. Lori has been extremely responsive to our needs. We were still living in VA an Lori would come by the new home and take pictures for us. She even stepped in on our behalf to help pick out our backsplash after were we told by the builder that our original choice had been discontinued.

We moved back to SC from IL and we were very happy with our experience with Lori as our realtor. We ended up buying a home which we loved but it had some issues and, if it hadn't been for Lori's experience and her professional associations, I'm doubtful that we would have been able to buy this particular house. Lori gave us great guidance throughout the process and lined us up with the perfect people to correct all the problems. This was invaluable since we were new to the area so we were very blessed to have Lori representing us
