Lori Duke - REALTOR®
I am proud to be a realtor with C21Redwood, a premier industry leader that puts people first. The agents at our Frederick County office are respected for their honest, hardworking, and professional manner. Our management is agent-centric, empowering us with the most up-to-date marketing and data solutions for buyers and sellers.
As a Downtown Frederick resident, I am recognized by neighbors, first-time home buyers, active military, and relocation clients for my real estate knowledge of this petite urban marketplace, set in the foothills of the Catoctin Mountain. I also have strong relationships with local lenders, real estate attorneys, title companies, home inspectors, home warranty companies, and insurance agents.
Trained as a Real Estate Collaborative Specialist in Divorce, Pricing Strategy Advisor, Accredited Buyer's Representative, and Project Manager, I ensure that:
• details will be well-managed,
• clients will be educated, informed and empowered, have access to a local lender and other professionals, and
• that the real estate transaction will be as stress-free as possible.
With dedication, confidence, and kindness I help my clients who, like me, need the kindness of others to help face challenges and fulfill dreams.
My passion is in the service of divorcing spouses. As a Real Estate Collaborative Specialist in Divorce An RCS-D™ REALTOR®, I am professionally trained to neutralize divorce real estate as a business transaction in the best interest of the house – and each divorcing spouse. Leading your divorce real estate team, I also serve as a project manager working with you and your lawyers and can refer real estate and financial professionals specializing in divorce to assist with gathering house-related documents and scheduling consultations, most of which are free. Remember all those documents you signed when you bought the house? Most are missing when mediating that same house. We provide free help to gather the house documents you need to make an informed decision regarding actual equity and whether to keep the house. To keep your house for all the right reasons, you need a real estate agent specializing in divorce – an RCS-DTM designee.
