We have been working with Lori Goto of Realty Austin for years and cannot recommend her more highly. She helped sell my condo several years ago and was successful in selling ours before any of the other ones that were listed at the time in that community. More recently she helped us find our first investment property, which we just closed on this week. In both cases Lori was professional, promptly answered questions by phone and email, and was a pleasure to work with. I will be using Lori in all...
Lori Goto was my Realtor for buying a home in 2011, and again for selling that house just this month. Lori was awesome to work with both times, very patient with all my questions and concerns while having an answer for me each time to set my mind at rest. I would definitely recommend her to any buyers or sellers!
Lori is FANTASTIC! She provided indispensable guidance for pricing and negotiation in the midst of uncertain times with the pandemic. Lori's photographer was amazing, and she created very professional and beautiful marketing tools. We moved across the country before our house was sold, and she brought us very sweet parting gifts before we left. Lori checked on our house multiple times per week after we left and kept us updated, which gave us peace of mind. She was also able to coordinate with an...
Lori Goto provided exceptional guidance and support throughout the purchase of our house in Round Rock. Lori was a personal friend long before she became a real estate agent. Lori has previously helped both of our daughters purchase homes in Austin. We have bought only one house in the past, in Houston in 1977; we were aware that the house purchase process might have undergone changes over the past 40 years, but we did not know exactly how the process had changed. We quickly learned that the hou...
I'm a first-time homeowner, and like many people I knew nothing or even where to start, a friend of mine recommended Lori with Realty Austin and am glad I went with her. She was very informative and explained the steps of buying a house, it sounded complicated, but then it's expected as you're making a big purchase. However, Lori was helpful at every step and kept following up and in good communication all the time even when we look at several houses, and I almost gave up finding something that ...
Lori was great throughout the sale of my 1st home and purchase of my 2nd home years later. She made the process run smooth, stress-free and continues to be available. Lori is very responsive no matter what time, day or night. She is definitely my Realtor for life.
I could not say enough good things about how Lori got our house sold in some very difficult circumstances. She is personable, professional, and was available 24/7. Having her experience on our side took us over the finish line.
We had a great experience with Lori Goto at Realty Austin! We started working with her about two years before we could finally \make the move\" to Lakeway. Lori was always there for us. She was knowledgeable, diligent, patient, experienced and responsive to any and all questions. We searched in excess of 45 homes. Lori's gentle nature and sense of humor were delightful to work with! I would highly recommend Lori and the Realty Austin team! "
Lori was amazing, as always! Super helpful and responsive and got us closed fast!
Lori has been nothing short of amazing! My husband and I have been so appreciative of everything she has done for us the past few months. As first time home buyers, this process can be very daunting, scary, and overwhelming. Lori has done an incredible job of guiding us during this journey by making sure we were well informed and comfortable from start to finish. She has truly gone above and beyond for us, and we can’t thank her enough. Her responsiveness, great attitude, and true concern for ...
Lori was absolutely amazing through this whole process. She was super patient with us as we switched neighborhoods and price points mid-search and uber-efficient lining things up before we even had a chance to ask for them. Lori was always willing to hop on a call to talk through any questions or concerns we had and very helpful with tips, recommendations, and relevant market data. And all around a pleasure to work with!
Lori was Spectacular! She has went above ad beyond to help us in every way to get our house sold for the price we wanted. We could not recommend her enough. We recommended her to a neighbor, and she will be selling their house soon!
She was the best!! I will use her again and refer her to anyone that I know looking in this market.
Lori Goto was our Realtor, and we had an awesome time working with her besides being our friend and from Hawaii. She found us a model home with a home builder at the Heritage at Vizcaya, and we fell in love with it and had Taylor Morrison build it for us. Lori always check up on us to see how the building was progressing. She is very professional and caring. We would recommend Lori to anyone looking for a Realtor. Awesome job Lori.
This is our fourth transaction with Lori as our agent, the first one being in 2013. As usual, her service was excellent. We are disappointed that, should we need an agent in the future, we cannot call on Lori, since we have moved to a different state entirely. We would recommend Lori’s warm and professional expertise to anyone needing real estate services.
Lori was fantastic. She went above and beyond and made the home search an easy process. We currently live in Chicago, so we presented some extra work for Lori. She was always responsive and helpful. For example, I reached out to her to solicit help at 10:00 pm the night before I was scheduled for a flight to look at some homes. She called me and was able to show me around in less than 12-hour notice. We didn't find anything in person, but a few weeks later, we found some houses online in Buda. W...
Lori Goto with Realty Austin is the best agent I have ever worked with. She knows the market very well. I have listed and purchased several homes over the years. Lori is simply a go-getter and makes time for me whenever I need her or have questions about the process. I highly recommend Lori!
Lori Goto was highly recommended by a coworker, and she didn't disappoint! We were immediately contacted by Lori, and she got our budget, what kind of home we were searching for, and we were emailed a good list of homes to go through. We picked some out, and that weekend went to go look. She was completely honest about what she thought, what she didn't like (if it was overpriced, not good quality, etc.) and helped us decide. She picked one out that wasn't on our list, and as soon as we walked in...
