Marianna and Pat - Buyers"In choosing Lorri as our Broker, we just got lucky. I looked up real estate in Berkeley on the internet and her page came up somehow. Lorri is thorough, intuitive and kept us informed throughout. She was quickly able to zero in on the type of house we were looking for. Without Lorri´s capable expertise, we would not have been the winning bid in the multiple-offer situation in which we found ourselves."
Jackie and Gareth - Buyers"Lorri was a personal recommendation from trusted friends (see Marianna and Pat, above). She is fantastic: professional at all times, exuding an air of confidence, and yet has an appreciation of the human assurance required when undertaking such a major move. We've all come to think of Lorri as a family friend."
Karen and Samee - BuyersLorri was highly recommended to us by two separate friends who did not know each other, and each raved about what a remarkable agent she is. We were not disappointed! Lorri is brilliant - she knows the market, is a strategic and skilled negotiator, and is clearly dedicated to her craft. She was insightful in finding the perfect house to meet our needs, anticipated our every question along the way, and drove home an incredible deal that met the needs and expectations of both sides, us and the sellers! She is a real treasure for Pacific Union and we were grateful to have had our first time home buying experience in her talented, professional and exceptionally capable hands. And she is fun to do business with! Five gold stars for Lorri and Pacific Union!
Jim and Patty - Buyers"We feel very fortunate to have worked with Lorri Arazi as our real estate agent. We were new to Berkeley and knew little about the area, making Lorri´s knowledge of the neighborhoods invaluable. We still can't believe we wound up in such a great place. Lorri kept us motivated to find the right home for us, even when we got tired of looking. She hooked us up with fabulous inspectors and contractors, which gave us confidence that we knew the truth about what our little fixer-upper would need. When it came to negotiations, Lorri took the time to consider our particular transaction and build a winning offer strategy which we believe saved us thousands over the traditional 'bid as high as you possibly can' approach that many use by default in this white hot housing market. She's fabulous."
Claudia and Miller - Buyers"Lorri Rosenberg Arazi recently helped us negotiate the extremely hot Berkeley market. We were able to close on the first and only house on which we made an offer. It was her savvy confidence that made all the difference. She is a supremely professional broker as well as a genuinely fine person. It was a pleasure to have worked with Lorri. I would recommend her without qualification. And I already have, to neighbors who plan to retire. Thanks to Lorri, we are able to live our dream of returning to the Bay Area after 25 years in the Pacific Northwest"
Tumikia and Gary - Buyers"This letter is to give our praise to you for your performance as our real estate agent. After our initial visit, we were shocked at the speed at which we were up and running. Your knowledge of housing construction showed that we were dealing with a seasoned, well-schooled professional. And just when we thought we had seen you in all your splendor, you went to another level in your negotiations with the seller. Even now, with the house hunting and negotiations far behind us, you are still there for us when we have questions or problems. As first time buyers, you made the experience a good one."
Diana and Akira - Buyers"Lorri is a gem -- no nonsense, yet with a very sensitive approach to assisting homebuyers. She helped greatly throughout the entire process of buying, both before and after we had our bid accepted. We'd recommend Lorri to any of our friends, any day!"
Ortal and Micah - 3 Time Buyers and Sellers"We met Lorri five years ago when she helped us buy a bungalow in Albany. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the local market. However, what impressed us most was how she persuaded the sellers to accept our offer over the other 10 on the table! She kept in touch with us over the years and when it was time to sell the bungalow and move to a larger house in the Upper Rockridge neighborhood of the Oakland Hills, we called Lorri. Using her expertise, we were able to receive top dollar on the sale. In purchasing our current home, again, we found ourselves in a competitive situation and, again, Lorri helped us prevail. One of Lorri´s biggest strengths is her ability to successfully advocate for her clients. Throughout all three transactions, Lorri proved to be an exceptional agent every step of the way. We will not hesitate to recommend her to our friends and neighbors. Pacific Union is lucky to have her!
John - Seller"Experience counts when you're in the middle of a frantic, irrational market like the Bay Area has been in for a few years now. You don't want somebody wondering about how to do the basics while their competition is figuring out the angles needed to make a sale or purchase in the midst of a couple of dozen offers. I had worked with Lorri before, and when I decided to sell my home in Oakland, I knew that I wanted Lorri to be my realtor again. She offered sage advice on every detail of getting the house ready to sell. She has a Rolodex worth its weight in gold, full of plumbers, stagers, gardeners, and every other resource necessary to make things happen fast and well. She knows how to tell a good offer which is likely to go through from one that looks good but is more risky. She knows how to manage an open house, and how to get the most bids in a competitive market. All of this expertise resulted in my home selling well over the asking price. Clearly, I highly recommend Lorri for her experience, professionalism, friendliness, and efficacy."
Susan and Robert - Sellers"We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your superlative work as our agent in selling our Berkeley home. Your professionalism, business acumen, market knowledge and personal service made this real estate transaction transpire with great ease. We look forward to working with you again and would not hesitate to refer other residential real estate transactions to you for your guidance"
David and Phoebe - Sellers"Lorri Arazi was the real estate Broker for our former home located in Berkeley, California. She did an outstanding job in attracting buyers and negotiating a sale of the home. Lorri was very proactive in her approach to selling - she did not allow the home to become 'stagnant' on the marketplace. Instead she proposed proper marketing and pricing solutions to the project of selling our home. I highly recommend Lorri as a real estate agent."
Lynn and Pat - 6 Time Buyers and Sellers"We really appreciate all the support you've given us through our "big move". We both feel really confident that you, as our agent will represent us with complete competence, and leave no stone unturned, no loose ends in any of our deals. It feels great to have a real pro on our team."
Jennifer - 2 Time Buyer and Seller"Thank you for being a determined professional, a proactive marketer, and a tigress in negotiation. There were several times there when I just wanted it to all go away, but your support and tenacity kept the ball rolling. Most of all, thank you for adding yourself to my circle of friends. I never thought that in selling and buying a house I would get me a new person to love."
Allison and Andrew - 2 Time Buyers and Sellers"Lorri was great! She was always available and very flexible to our schedules. Without her advice, we wouldn't have sold for nearly as much as we did!"
