Lori Duke - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Five years ago I bought my primary residence and Lori was my realtor.

She was so helpful and knowledgeable that I went back to her again when I was looking for an investment property. She held my hand every step of the way towards a successful purchase. I would recommend her to first time buyers as well as seasoned buyers. She really is a pleasure to work with.

It’s hard to express how pleased I am with Lori abilities.

I met Lori while she was doing an open house. I tend not to like to talk to sales people, I’m detailed oriented, and like perfection. Lori was very professional and was able to get past my guard what in itself told me how great she is. I visited many homes and asked for information about each home I visited and Lori was the only agent that actually followed up and provided what I asked for. I knew right then I wanted Lori as my selling agent. I am so happy I did. I undervalued my property. Lori did the comps and gave me a suggested range. I went high as I had 8 months to sell. Lori advised me on the house preparation. I had an offer 1 day before the house went on the market. The first offer had a contract issue and had another contract in 3 days at full asking price. WOW!!! Lori followed up during the entire process. At settlement everyone was so happy it went so smooth.

Lori is no ordinary agent, she goes above and beyond the call of duty.

She is honest, brilliant with negotiation, aggressive in selling, a friend, and simply the best agent for the job. I considered selling my home for years and talked to many agents at many agencies. Most other agents were negative about being able to sell my property and were the hesitant realist types. Lori was positive, encouraging and simply said we'll sell it and do our best. She did sell it and for precisely what I hoped to get out of it. In many ways she was a miracle worker in my case. I cannot recommend her enough. Go with Lori! The entire process was smooth. Also she is real and sincere while many others are not. She said to me once ( and it made an impression) that she loves going through the experience with people. She loves helping people achieve their dream of a home. She finds her purpose in this. That is very special. And what's more I have a new life-long friend! Thank you Lori for helping me get to where I needed to be! ;)

Lori is truly a consummate professional!

We are a military family that were purchasing a home from a different state. After being connected with one realtor that didn’t even look up the availability or schedule a showing of homes from a list that I had provided, I decided to find a NEW realtor. From the very first phone call with Lori, I felt a sense of relief and security. She scheduled showings within 24 hrs of our phone call and did a video call so we can see the homes. We discussed how to negotiate so that our offer got accepted and the processed went smoothly without us even stepping foot into the house. It only took us 49 days to close on our home from start to finish (we also had a great lending agent). We are very happy with our home and the experience we had with Lori. You won’t be disappointed!

Dear potential home seller/buyer, If you are truly looking for an advocate in this ever shrinking world of sensitivity for the client, you need to meet Lori Duke.

She is a business person with sensitivity and understanding to match, as well as an ear to hear and a mind to understand your specific needs. She matches anyone in the market I have worked with, that can also help you through the process, while keeping your dignity intact. She also handles the obstacles and still remains true to the goal. I am a person that has an extensive sales career, and I have sat around the table with C level executives, and she has this type of muster to get the job done. ...But yet she does it with an even hand, a cool head, and with class. It's no surprise she has the positive reviews above, as I can see Lori has earned her sales the old fashioned way...one at a time and one day at a time, making sure her client is treated like family. Happy hunting. Sincerely, Tim F. (current Frederick MD client)

Lori was friendly and personable from day one- months before we actually purchased our home.

Throughout our home purchase journey she was quick to get back to us about any and all questions.Lori was very helpful during the home loan process, always eager to explain and answer questions. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house, or simply someone with questions about it as she is very knowledgeable and honest.

"Lori was by far the very best realtor we had.

She was very helpful, approachable and friendly. Lori guided us every single step of the way, she was very open and honest shen we asked for her opinion. She did a wonderful job and now we have a beautiful home because of her."

Kevin, Frederick MD (Buyer)

"We found Lori Duke to be an exceptional realtor!

She was extremely knowledgeable but more importantly she was extremely courteous, professional, patient, kind and responsive to our concerns and questions. I would not hesitate to recommend Lori Duke to my family and friends."

The Gardners, Frederick (Buyer)

I think Lori Duke is one of the very few "real deal" people still left in business today.

She had empathy for us and our challenges that resonated a sound business ethic, and a follow through we just have not experienced before. A personal touch that that let us know "we" were as important as the sale, and not the other way around. You are definitely in good hands with Lori. All my best, Tim F.

Lori helped present our house in the best light, thanks to the careful staging she oversaw and beautiful marketing presentation, including professionally produced pictures.

She was always available for advice and hand holding and never left us hanging when we needed her help. Since we were by necessity spending a lot of time together, her personable style made the process much more enjoyable. Our house sold sooner than expected for a house in our price range, thanks to her persistence.

Our house sold within 7 days after going on the market because she is so amazing in all she does. It’s such a pleasure to work with her, and will definitely reach out to her the next time I purchase a house."

Jason Hamilton, Maryland (Seller)

Lori was a wonderful, thoughtful, thorough, and relaxed agent to work with.

She met with us in our home and was honest, punctual, and detailed - she really took the time to hear our desires and concerns, and she was tireless in her efforts to guide us through the home search and home sale. In addition to knowing her as a skilled and personable agent, we're lucky, now, to call Lori a friend. I can't suggest Lori highly enough!

We had heard lot of good things about Lori but wasn’t sure what to expect when we enlisted her help to purchase a home.

We are very pleased to say that Lori exceeded all of our expectations as a realtor! She is very professional and thorough in all aspects of the home buying process. Buying a home can be stressful, complicated and arduous, but Lori, was able to assist us through all of the details in this process. We were very comfortable having Lori on our side throughout this process. She is very responsive, always getting back to our enquiries very promptly. I highly recommend Lori as a realtor to anyone buying or selling a home in the area!

"Lori has the heart of a teacher, she was there to answer all our questions at any time of the day.

she is very knowledgeable about the home buying process. we were impressed at our first meeting, she soothed our nerves about the hold process because we knew we were in good hands. Lori was exceptional, she is a true asset to your organization. At no point did we feel rushed or pressured about any decision. she always gave us her professional opinion and acted in our best interest at all times."

Lindon Thompson, Frederick MD (Buyer)

Lori is fantastic!

She is truly an expert at what she does and I could not have asked for a better agent. She helped us decide what needed to be done to present the house for sale in the best light possible. My house has been a difficult sale for many reasons. I can’t emphasize enough how helpful Lori has been during this process. She helped me work through all of the problems and stuck by me with professional and personal support. She advertised the house well, both locally and in national publications, and ran quite a number of open houses, both for local agents and buyers. She responds quickly to all calls and e-mails and kept me up-to-date throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Lori to other sellers (and to buyers as well)!

Lori helped us get our home sold in less than 2 months from our original listing.

She held an open house and was ready to hold another one before we got our offer. She followed up every potential buyer to find out what they liked, what they didn't, and whether the price was right. After securing a contract, Lori never left our side, ensuring all of the contingencies were resolved in a timely manner. At closing, we (the sellers) were out of town, but she went the extra mile to make sure the deal went through cleanly and quickly.
