“Helping people with not only their biggest financial investment, but also their biggest emotional investment, is my life’s work. There is no better feeling than matching the two. The smile on my clients’ faces when I hand over the keys to their new home is a feeling like none other!”
Lori is a graduate of Mercer Island High School and has a degree from the University of Oregon, in Journalism and Advertising. Her first job out of college was in the advertising department of the corporate office of John L Scott Real Estate.
During her time in advertising she worked with individual real estate brokers to promote their client’s properties, as well as with builders who were developing plats and building new homes throughout the greater King County region. The lessons she learned during this tenure were invaluable and remain constant skills that she continues to use in her business every single day.
In 1989, after several years in the corporate world, Lori changed courses and began her career in real estate sales. Working initially in the Bellevue office of John L Scott, she became an expert in contracts and negotiations while representing single family home builders, downtown condominium developers and individual home buyers and sellers.
In 1991 and after the birth of her first child, Connor, Lori transferred to the Mercer Island office of John L Scott. She and her mother, Lou Glatz, began a partnership and formed “The Lou and Lori Team.”
The team is rooted in the values of market knowledge, honesty, trust and old fashioned hard work. These ideals have allowed this mother/daughter and now son team to flourish in many changing markets throughout the last 25 years.
