"You know you have a great Realtor when your neighbors call you to compliment her. Yes - this actually happened when Lori ran our open house. They were impressed with the way Lori knowledgeably represented the home and neighborhood. With such a hot market, we (very) briefly considered selling by owner. I am so glad we didn’t. Lori provided “cradle to grave” service — all using her deep knowledge of the area. Based on the targeted buyer we expected, she provided guidance to prepare the house: not just things we SHOULD do, but things that were not worth doing. She then coordinated an all-out marketing campaign, including professional photos, 3-D tours, and reaching out to her vast network of agents. Once the listing was live, she followed up on all the showings. Throughout the process, she kept us fully updated. We accepted an offer within five days, but Lori‘s work was nowhere near done. She coordinated inspections, handled all communications with the buyers/agent, as well as the million details needed to close the sale, without a hitch. We trusted the sale of our home to Lori and would do it again (and again and again!)." — Home Seller

"Lori was an absolute joy to work with! She was pleasant, kind, knowledgeable and personable. Plus, she remained patient with us as we asked multiple questions, contacted her at various hours and walked us through some possible pitfalls (which we avoided). If you are buying or selling in Kitsap or Jefferson counties, you could not have a better partner or advocate." — Home Buyer
"Lori’s professionalism and attention to the details are phenomenal. Her knowledge of the local market and real estate dramatically increase the opportunity for outcomes in line with a buyer or sellers objectives. She provides timely information and ensures all parts of this very complex transaction are on track throughout the process. I would 100% ask for Lori’s assistance for future purchases in the Puget Sound area." — Home Seller
"Having moved six times in my life, I have worked with more than a few realtors; I wish I had Lori for three of my moves. Lori is a professional. She is patient, listens to you and what you are interested in and will give you a honest answer to your questions, and is always on time for appointments. Real estate sales can be very demanding. It takes a special personality to be successful; you will not be disappointed with Lori. FJM " — Home Seller
"Lori is an absolute joy to work with. Her positive and generous attitude, intuitive attention to our needs , and her rock solid communication made our home selling process simply a breeze.

"I worked with Lori to sell my parent's home in Port Ludlow this year. Her level of professionalism, dedication, perseverance, follow-through and can-do spirit are unsurpassed in my experience. I worked in mortgage lending for 17 years and have worked closely with many realtors over the years, but Lori really wowed me with how she handled my parent's transaction. No detail was too big or small for her to handle and without her support, the transaction would probably have fallen apart. Moreover, she helped immensely with my parent's transition out of their home in a dignified manner. I cannot praise Lori highly enough and deeply appreciate her abilities and positive attitude. Not only did she get my parent's the highest price in the market, she handled the details like a consummate professional. I wholeheartedly recommend Lori without reservation. Give Lori a call and talk with her, you will not be disappointed."— Mark M. Home Seller
"Lori Montone was my choice as realtor from our initial meeting. She came with the skill set and can do attitude I anticipated. Lori worked throughout the process with my daughters and myself with her knowledge, timely information, and patience. She kept to a timeline that allowed the unexpected to occur and yet proceed to success. Thank you Lori. You are the best."— Pat. R. Home Seller
"Lori is a wonderful Agent. Her enthusiasm, guidance and positive attitude about listing our home during the Holiday, Covid and snow days put us at ease in her more than capable hands. She went above and beyond to help us sell our home. We moved out of State and Lori took care of our empty home via staging, open houses, and keeping that watchful eye on the place. We couldn’t be more grateful of Lori. Thank you Lori!!" — Carol S. Home Seller
"If I could give Lori six stars I would! Lori is incredibly personable, responsive and goes above and beyond to make sure your home selling experience goes smoothly. Her attention to detail, communication and follow through was so appreciated as I was moving from WA to AZ and needed some help tying up the loose ends particularly towards the end of my sale, as I had already made the move to AZ. Seriously so impressed with her customer service…she really cares about her client’s experience and does what she can to exceed your expectations. Thank you, Lori! You’re an amazing human and realtor." — Keri R. Home Seller
"Lori Montone is the realtor for you no matter what your needs are or how much your budget is. She listened instead of talked, she responded instead of reacting, she made what I thought was impossible possible but more than anything she was/is a friend instead of just another realtor. I had several obstacles to me acquiring the home that I desired but just like an old Marine or crazed attack dog Lori methodically went about tearing down boundaries and removing hurdles that most realtors would have either walked away from or tried to move me on to an easier transaction. In short, I’m writing this as I sit in my new home sipping wine and watching football!! What a blessing this home is and what a blessing Lori is!!!! She gets 101% out of 100%" — Frank C. Home Seller
"Lori lives in Port Ludlow and has her finger on the pulse of the market. She knew the right time for us to put our condo on the market, set the right price and helped us to get it staged and ready to achieve our goals. In addition to being an amazing real estate agent, she is a genuine good human being and we felt supported and represented every step of the way." — Eva S. Home Seller
"Lori was a true guide, expert and positive-thinking realtor during a crazy summer of home buying. Lori fielded each contact from us with grace, patience and answered our questions (and there were many) with her expertise and knowledge. Lori helped us find a house that works for us even with all the ups and downs of this crazy market! We would recommend Lori for anyone selling or buying a home." — Ronni R. Home Seller
"We made multiple trips to Port Ludlow to look at real estate with Lori. She was very cheerful, professional and a joy to work with. She was very proactive and I felt she was actively looking for potential homes for us. This was an important asset as we live in the Midwest and she served as our ears and eyes on the ground. I would enthusiastically recommend Lori Montone." — Home Buyer
