What clients are saying...
Lorie was very pleasant and professional to work with. I chose her from her bio on the Shorewest website. Not planning to list until after the Super Bowl, I followed her recommendation to proceed 2 weeks prior to that on a snowy January day and the condo sold on the first day it was listed for full asking price. So, the transaction actually closed before the Super Bowl. I highly recommend Lorie.
Lori Spiewak is my rock star realtor. She goes above and beyond in helping me acquire the properties that I have. I would not change agents unless she no longer was a realtor for whatever reason. She is an asset to your company and a valuable employee. Of course, you probably already heard this from many other people and understand how valuable she is to Shorewest. Thanks again Lori for always going the extra mile. It took a couple years with ups and downs but you were always professional and had a friendly face on. I appreciate the effort more than you will ever know.
Lorie was a great realtor she far exceeded my expectations
Lorie is awesome!
What difference does a fantastic realtor make over other realtors? Everything! Lorie Spiewak expertly guided us through selling our house of 22 years and finding the perfect condo for our next season of life. For the selling of our home, we counted on her expertise and knowledge in matters including: time to sell, what to fix, selling price and selling options. Lorie gave full effort in marketing our house and we accepted an offer to buy after only six days of being listed! For finding our dream condo, Lori carefully listened to our extensive list of must haves , from completely cat-free to lake access. She tirelessly sorted through prospective places for us and got us showings as soon as new listings went on the market. She found us precisely what we were hoping for and worked us through submitting an offer the same night we were shown our dream condo. Through both selling and buying, Lorie was always available to us for our questions. She is a seasoned professional in helping people comfortably navigate the unbelievably complicated process of selling and buying. We have complete trust and confidence in Lori's many gifts and abilities. She is authentically passionate about helping others. That joy in serving is evident through her humble and wise demeanor, always mentioning that these were our decisions to make. We eagerly tell others about Lori's wonder-working ways! Wes and Chris Slawson
Lorie was great to work with! During the process of my home sale there were a few matters that needed extra attention. I was super stressed; she was there for me every step of the way and really helped talk me through the situations and gave me the reassurance that I needed to get through it. Thanks Lorie!!
Lorie was very helpful and communicative throughout our sales! We are so glad to have found her!
Lorie was so amazing to work with both buying and selling our home. She is so knowledgeable of the current market and gave us excellent guidance through the whole process, making sure everything went as smoothly as possible. She is so professional, but also takes the time to personally get to know you and what you are looking for. She was always quick to respond and worked hard and fast to find answers to any questions we had. She was even so patient to accommodate us and meet at our home with our 2 year old trying to 'help.' We can't say enough excellent things about working with Lorie and would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home! Thank you again Lorie!!
Lorie was extremely professional during our entire experience. She is extremely knowledgeable and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell property.
We had doubts about going through a realtor but we are so very greatful we did. We received more money than anticipated without any hassles. Lorie did all the planning and follow thru, with her resources and experience. Lorie is very personable and we at no time felt pressured.
Lorie does a fabulous job!! I am amazed with all of her knowledge. This is our second time using Lorie and we have recommended her to our children!
Lorie was amazing to work with! She helped us sell our rental quickly and effortlessly. We live 1.5 hours from the home and she was willing to stop by when little things needed attention or inspection, which was so helpful! Her communication was great and was always willing to answer questions when we had them. I highly recommend working her on the sale of your home!
I wanted to share my experience with Lorie and my adventures in selling my house. 2016 was the year I moved from Wisconsin to Colorado, I rented my house to a friend that was wanting to buy it, it didn't go well... The tenants did not buy it after all and it was trashed when they left it. I didn't have the money to fixit and being that I now live in Colorado it was hard to do much. I came out just before covid hit and was stuck in Wisconsin for almost a ear trying to get it cleaned up as best as I could. Lorie reached out to me about a year or so before all this with a interested party that wanted to buy the house and we started a journey that was filled with pitfalls and struggles, but all through it Lorrie was a rock and kept everything moving forward. I am happy to say my home was sold and it was all thanks to Lorries hard work and steady hand. She was amazing and if I ever wanted to move back to wisconsin she would be the first on my list to call to buy a home. Thank you Lorrie!
Wow! Lorie is an exceptional agent. We sold our family home of almost 20 years and Lorie made the entire process more than easy. She understands the emotions that we went through selling our home with so many memories. She helped us through every step, explained every detail, and we were never ever rushed. Her knowledge, experience and professionalism are beyond reproach and she is simply a delight to work with! We sold our home quickly and painlessly because of Lorie!
Excellent to all needs and on top of everything.There is nothing negative I could honestly say.Never gets upset and calming through entire process.
My wife and I are very pleased with the way Lorie handed the sale of our house from start to finish. Lorie was always very professional and pleasant the way she handled everything. She always kept us informed and let us know what was going on in every respect. Its apparent too that she has taken extra steps to be as knowledgeable as she is in the real estate business. Lorie is a real assett to the real estate market and Shorewest. she's definitely a five star! We would again use Lorie if we had the chance and we have aleady passed her name and Shorewest's on. Thanks
Lorie is a warm and caring agent. She was tenacious with our purchase of our home. She is willing to go the extra mile and get all the information we needed. She is extremely efficient and everything went smoothly at closing. We would highly recommend Lorie Spiewak to everyone that is buying or selling a home.
Our experience with Lorie was excellent. The entire process (from start to closing) was seamless with Lorie's commitment. All questions were answered and addressed in a timely manner. Our expectations were exceeded and than some with having Lorie represent us as the seller of our condo. We cannot say enough of Lorie's professionalism and understanding of our needs during the entire process . We have already recommended Lorie to other family members and friends for future real estate needs. Thank you so much Lorie!!
Lorie did an exceptional job, she was super friendly and helpful. She immediately went to work finding homes in our guidelines. On one occasion, when she couldn't make it to a walk through of a potential property, she made arrangements so we could see the home on our time, which was great, since we had only limited hours to work with. She helped us through the whole process. I would totally recommend Lorie to friends and family. Thank you Lorie!! Dan and Rachelle Haacker.
Lorie recently sold a house for my husband and I. She was very informative and kept us updated every step of the way. She went above and beyond to make sure the sale and closing went smoothly! If anyone is thinking of selling or buying I highly recommend Lorie. Thanks again Lorie!
As a home inspector I work with and see many agents. Lorie shows a kindness and caring for her clients that is unparalleled. She even took the time to set up a call with me and her clients late in the night to meet a deadline and ensure the process went smoothly. Lorie is the truest example of a professional.
Lorie was excellent! We had to move quickly for my daughters school. I only got to meet with Lorie twice, and she took care of everything from then on. We moved out to the west coast, and she kept us informed of what was going on. The house sold very quickly. We were able to do all the closing paperwork over the internet. Highly recommend!
We had an incredibly positive and smooth process during the sale of our house. Lorie was so helpful and attentive to all of our questions and concerns. From our first meeting with her to the final closing, we felt that she was with us every step of the way. She is so pleasant and cheerful and we highly recommend her expertise. Thanks for a wonderful experience and a very successful outcome.
Lorie has been absolutely wonderful! The showing and sale of our house has gone so smoothly, thanks to Lorie's expertise. She has been very professional and incredibly helpful every step of the way. We highly recommend Lorie!
Lorie was absolutely wonderful in the sale of our home And buying our new one, 18 months of showing us homes,she is so knowledgeable and patient ,recommend her highly.John and Linda Hughes
Lorie was highly recommended by a friend. Our friend was right. Lorie as well as Kristine Boivin helped my wife and I find the perfect home for us. She's professional and also fun to work with. (She laughed at all of my corny jokes)! Thanks Lorie.
Lorie Spiewak is very passionate about real estate.... it shows!! While remaining professional throughout the process, Lorie provides a kind and caring approach with her clients and makes what can be a highly stressful event a fun experience We could not have asked for a better person to guide us through the process!! Thank you Lorie SpiewK and God bless you!!
I have and will keep recommending Lorie to everyone. She was excellent to work with and she had us for awhile. We had very specific things we were looking for in a home and Lorie just kept with us for 3 years until we found the right one. Once we found our new home Lorie had everything completely organized for us and sent reminders when things were due. This was completely appreciated with busy work schedules. Then we had a few bumps right before closing, and we were totally impressed how Lorie was right on top of them and got them taken quickly and in our best interest. We hope to retire in about 10 years and move out of State. Lorie will be my first calling when ready to sell.
Lorie helped me purchase my first home. I am forever grateful for all the help and guidance she offered and will never forget it! She turned an extremely stressful life event into an incredible experience. Thank you, Lorie!
I have purchased, and sold homes with Lorie over the past four years. She is a pleasure to work with, and I've always had nothing but pleasant interactions with her. I would highly recommend her, because she is down to Earth, and she was always able to get answers to any questions I ever had in a timely manner. I appreciate everything she has done for my daughter, and I. She will not disappoint.
Lorie is absolutely amazing!!! We were first time home buyers and had ALOT of questions and concerns. Lorie was so wonderful and helpful from start to finish. She was always available and eager to help. She is definitely in the right business to deal with people. If you are looking for the best!! She is it.
Lorie was amazing! She was very responsive during the entire process from initial home showings to putting an offer in and closing on our first home! She was extremely supportive and always willing to answer any questions we had. We are very happy to have had her as our realtor!
Selling our home through Lorie was the best choice! She made the whole process as easy as she could for us. She was there for us, even when we hit a few bumps in the road. Lorie was quick to answer any questions and kept us in the loop every step of the way. Even living hours away I felt so connected and knew that Lorie had our best interests in mind when advising us. Thank you, Lorie, for making a difficult situation so much easier for us!!
Our experience with Lori, as our realtor, was fabulous!!! Lori is so knowledgeable. We were so impressed with her expertise about the real estate in Burlington and well as Lake Geneva. She understood what we were looking for and narrowed down the correct properties that would fit our needs. After closing, Lori was then so helpful with names for contractors for work we wanted done on our new home. The contractors recommended were wonderful, quick and efficient. We would definitely use Lori again!!!!
Lorie came highly recommended by a friend and I am so happy that I selected her as my realtor. She went above and beyond when selling my home and was also very helpful with the purchase of my new home. She is resourceful, professional and reliable...Lorie is a true asset to Shorewest.
Lorie takes the time to understand your needs in helping you select a home. She keeps the process moving and makes sure all of the little things are taken care of so moving is as stress free as possible.
Lorie was always available to help with any questions and concerns I had. She went far above and beyond to help me with the sale of a property during a very difficult time for my family. I would recommend Lorie to any one looking for help buying or selling a home she is fantastic!!!
Lorie Spiewak listed and sold our home of 39 years for us. From the beginning of the home being listed until the sale and closing Lorie was professional , always proactive, and encouraging. We didn't show our home until our youngest daughter visited with her family who live in the U. K. We needed her to be able to sleep in tbe home she moved to at the age of 1 and a half. By September sales of homes slowed down. Lorie knew we had a home to move into. She creatively tried ways to encourage a sale. We had an accepted offer by the end of September and a closing on November 14. We recommend Lorie and know she will represent you well.
Our experience with Lorie was outstanding. She is professional, knowledgeable and a very caring person. What a wonderful person to work with. We would recommend Lorie to anyone.
Lorie Spiewak, was exceptional at every level. I was an out of state sale, and she was able to facilitate everything, from closing to assisting with inspection corrections. As, stressful as this could have been, Lorie made this a smooth and stress free process, with her exceptional customer service and one of a kind professionalism. I would not hesitate to request her assistance with any future needs. Thank you Lorie!
Lorie was an exceptional realtor & confidante. I am a practicing realtor in another state so I wanted an agent who knew the market, had done business in the area & would be available to monitor things at my home since I live out of town. Lorie fulfilled all my needs. She provided excellent references to local handymen or contractors as needed. You will feel fully supported and represented if you work with Lorie either on a sale or a buy.
If you are looking for a realtor who goes above and beyond for her clients, look no further! As a residential service provider who routinely works with realtors, there are many who stand out to me one way or another....some good, some not so good, and a few that are exceptional. Lorie falls into my very small category of exceptional realtors. If you in need of an experienced realtor who genuinely cares about you and can offer a low-stress buying or selling experience, I highly recommend working with Lorie!
My mother passed away last year and Lori was recommended by a neighbor to sell her house and settle the estate. Lori exceeded all expectations. She helped coordinate donations and was able to meet with contractors when I had to be out of town. There was truly nothing that Lori wasn't able to handle and she anticipated most needs in advance. Her knowledge of laws and codes was comprehensive. Lori has a great working relationship with many area contractors which proved invaluable when numerous complications arose. There was never a day when Lori lost patience, enthusiasm, or determination even on the darkest days when I often did. I will also add that my house was one of Lori's least expensive listings yet the level of service I got was more befitting a lakefront mansion. In this day and age when service often takes a back seat to reputation and technology, you will feel as though you are Lori's only client. The service was that good.
My husband and I highly recommend Lori. We were nervous about selling our 3 acres of undeveloped land, and really hoped to sell it to someone who seen the beauty in it and loved it as much as we did. Lori did that within 3 days. She's very ambitious, knowledgeable, hard working, and always responded quickly to our calls or texts. We felt reassured we chose the right realtor. I talked to her on a Wednesday, gave her our signed papers on Thursday. She shared the land info with Shorewest. Friday morning she said she received one aggressive offer and two buyers want to write an offer. Wow, my husband and I couldn't believe it! Saturday morning morning we went to sign the accepted offer papers. To our surprise there was a counter offer, given by the first man. We were so glad that the buyer really loves the land and plans on building his home right away. I should also mention, this was on a holiday weekend. Lori is amazing.
I'm not sure we can adequately encapsulate why we love Lorie, but I'll try! Lorie is a kind, thoughtful, professional realtor. My husband and I were looking to buy our first home and we had been nervous and overwhelmed by the process. How many lenders should we interview? How should we set our search parameters? What could we really afford? Etc. But when we met Lorie, we knew immediately that she was the right choice to lead us through the process. She listens to what you say are priorities and gives you advice for how to find properties that will suit. She deeply respects your price point and knows how to interpret when a house has good bones that you can work with and when a house has issues that would be harder to fix. She is responsive but not obtrusive. It never felt like we were 'on our own' and it never felt like there were too many cooks in the kitchen. That is a tough balance and she struck it with apparent ease. In a market like this, you need someone like Lorie. We were getting discouraged after being immediately out-bid on a couple of offers, the market was so competitive. But she gave us some advice for how to make our offer more attractive without necessarily offering an insane amount above asking. And when we got an 'accepted offer,' it was such a wonderful feeling knowing that we didn't have to compromise our budget to do it. Lorie knows her stuff and she genuinely cares that you wind up in the right house for you. She is thoughtful and responsive without being overbearing and she is an excellent professional. She's now a permanent fixture on our Christmas card list. Her hard work is a big part of why, this year, we will be able to send them from a house we love. Thank you, Lorie!
We requested a sellers report and received it in a extremely short period of time. Lorie is extremely knowledgeable in her job and is a outstanding salesperson.
She was so AWESOME! Very knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile!
The most important thing to me when dealing with any person or business is communication. Prompt and accurate information being shared in a timely manner. That is what I love about Lorie. I have no idea how she gets back to me so fast with the many, many questions I have as a real estate investor but she does. I seek out the best people to help me with my investing. The best tax accountant, the best carpenters, plumbers, etc. and the best realtor. NOBODY AND I MEAN NOBODY COULD BE BETTER THAN LORIE. I look forward to many more dealings with her and Shorewest. Shorewest, you are very fortunate she works for you or you would have a lot less sales and another realty office would have a lot more. Looking forward to working with you in early 2020.
Lorie was a pleasure to work with. Not only did she make the home buying process extremely easy to understand, she also was very patient with us as it took 2 years to find our home. She always said when you see the right house you'll know, and boy was she right. I would recommend Lorie to anyone who needs a realtor. She is very professional and knowledgeable and could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you Lorie! Jeff & Hope
Our daughter referred us to Lorie and we ultimately found out our daughter was correct in her choice of real estate agents . Lorie proved herself from the get go as she found a buyer within a short period of time. Lorie proved her self capable and if we had more property to sell we would choose her to handle the sale. We would also choose her if we were buyers.
Lorie was absolutely wonderful! She handled both the sale of our home and purchase of our new home. We would highly recommend Lorie!
A friend referred me to Lorie. If you are buying or selling a home, one of the best things you could do for yourself is to hire Lorie to help you. She is highly knowledgeable, yet is always interested in staying on top of new developments. She works hard for you and maintains excellent contact with you. I also found her to be ethical and just an overall nice person who I would be glad to call a friend.
Lorie was professional and friendly. She is very knowledgeable and we felt confident in her abilities. She was in constant communication with us. When we ran into a snag, she was up late correcting it. We can't say enough how wonderful it was to work with Lorie.
We would definitely recommend Lorie Spiewak and the entire Shorewest Realty team. This was not our first time selling a home, so we could tell Lorie knew her business. She is fun but professional, answered our questions and had our best interests at heart. It was a pleasure working with her.
I can't say enough good things about Lorie. I'm so glad that my daughter's best friend suggested we consider her when I said we were looking for someone to help us sell our house. From the day we met her, I knew we were doing the right thing. She's not only done a great job getting it sold, she's gone above & beyond to help us through this stressful time. It's not been an easy time in this crazy market, our buyers are inexperienced and so is their agent. She's helped us all through the bumps and stumbles. If you're looking for an exceptional real estate agent, she's what you need. Don't hesitate to call her. We're so grateful we found her. Thank you so much, Lorie, for all the time, support and expertise .
When we started looking to buy our first home, we were recommended to Lorie and we are so happy that we were! At first it seemed like such a scary process but Lorie always put us at ease. She was always available to answer our many questions, day or night, and always had a smile on her face. She went above and beyond to keep things on schedule and moving smoothly. We have nothing but amazing things to say about Lorie and would recommend her to everyone we know!
Lorie was fantastic to work with, always available for questions and receptive to what we were looking for. She helped us find the perfect home for our family and we will recommend her to anyone looking.
When we were ready to downsize and sell our family home of 20+ years, Lorie made it easy. We had an accepted offer in one week! Lorie is both friendly and professional. It's clear she wants to do her best for you. She is very accessible! Whenever we had questions or concerns, she was quick to respond to texts, calls or emails - even when she was on a family vacation! You can feel confident putting your trust in Lorie!
My recent move with Lorie was perfectly seamless - all details, meetings, notices and such were provided in the most efficient manner. Contract to Closing was less than 4 weeks, and everyone was smiling.
We interviewed several realtors based on their success in selling homes like ours, and unanimously chose Lorie. We liked her smarts and her work ethic, and she delivered. We sold our home for our desired price in less than a month's time. Lorie went above and beyond in prepping the home and managing the tiniest of details, which was a huge relief since the property is over an hour from where we live. I'd readily recommend Lorie again. Janet Ady, designated point person for family home
Lorie is a fantastic asset to Shorewest. She is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I was a first time home buyer and wouldn't want to work with anyone else in the future. She truly had my best interest in mind and wasn't just trying to sell me real estate: she helped me find home. I reccomend her to everyone who tells me they are looking for a house!
Lorie is a consummate professional who offers a level of service and customer care that is difficult to find these days. She is buttoned-up, extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and proactive. I never had to worry with Lorie on my side; she literally jumped in and handled things that I, as the seller, technically should have done just to help me out and make my load lighter. She really is a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Perhaps the most telling thing to note is that I will not hesitate to call on Lorie again the next time I find myself in need of a great realtor.
So happy to have Lorie by our side as we sold our home and purchased a new lot. She was always available and willing to help. Her kind personality made us feel at ease. She made this experience very pleasant. I would highly recommend Lorie to anyone looking to sell or purchase. We liked her so much we listed another property with her!
Lorie was right there every step of the way. She always responded quickly and was eager to find exactly what we wanted . Selling our a house with Lorie as well was a great experience. Any hurdles we had she was there to help us through . I would recommend Lorie to any of family & friends.
Lorie was very informed and courteous. If there was a question she didn't know, she would get that answer quickly. Lorie was very professional and also very personable. I would recommend her to anyone.
We have moved several times across several different states and Lorie is one of the best realtors we have ever worked with. She is a pleasure to work with, as well as professional and knowledgeable and we had complete confidence in her. When we were ready to make an offer Lorie was invaluable in helping us through the entire process. She went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home and guide us through the process. She constantly followed up on items and helped us stay on track, along with the bank and seller. We never had to worry that something might be overlooked or would slip through the cracks. We would highly recommend Lorie, and look forward to working with her again in the future.
My experience with Lorie, and the entire Shorewest family, was exceptional. She worked around my busy schedule to when was convenient for me, including evenings and weekends. She quickly and clearly answered all of my questions and smoothly led me through the entire process. I was astonished to learn I was her first completed sale, as my impression was that of working with an experienced professional that had been doing the job for years. I felt like I was helped to BUY a home, rather than being SOLD one. I would recommend Lorie to family and friends without hesitation.
