I enjoyed working with Lori. I am very thankful for her help and exceptional service provided to me as well as my daughter. I will definitely refer her to friends and family.
Lori Goto was wonderful! Friendly, helpful, everything we'd want in an agent and more. We felt like she was on our side solidly through the whole thing, taking care of stuff we needed that was unusual because of our overseas move. She kept us informed and was really there for us. We'd absolutely recommend her to anyone in the area.
Lori was amazing, as always! Super helpful and responsive and got us closed fast!
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.
Lori Goto is amazing, and she was always there to answer questions and check on things for us. Lori has been a friend of ours for many years, and we think the world of her and she was ready and willing to jump in and help get us in a home. We will be forever grateful to her!
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!
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 ...
My wife and I are extremely happy with the level of service and professionalism provided by Lori. We blindsided her with a last-minute listing, and she worked diligently, even on vacation, and had other people tending to our needs to get things ready. Without a doubt, I would recommend Lori to anyone moving to or from Austin.
We have used Lori to buy and sell several properties. She has great skills and is able to tell us a good buy from avoiding risky purchases. She has extremely insightful details to share with you on properties. Lori is always upbeat, always smiling, and definitely knows how to do her job as a Realtor. The best quality about Lori is that you can trust her to make the best deal for you! I highly, truly recommend Lori, she won't steer you wrong! Thank you, Lori, for handling everything so profession...
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!
I really enjoyed working with Lori! She went beyond my expectations, promptly responded to my emails, and kept me on the loop. She is very friendly and easy to work with. She really helped me a lot with this transaction. I recommend her to my family and friends, and I know she will take care of them the same way she took care of me. Lori was very patient with me and responded to every question I had. Thank you, Lori! I really appreciate everything you did for us to get the property I really want...
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 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 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...
We had a wonderful experience with Lori Goto, who was our agent on both the selling and buying side. Lori's many years of experience showed in her ability to answer all of our questions fully (important to us, because this is the first house we've sold in the state of Texas, and real estate transactions are a bit different in Minnesota, where we're from). She has exceptional attention to detail and knowledge of things that we have had no experience with, like the septic system that came with our...
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...
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! "
I am a second time client of Lori Goto. She is professional as well as personable, caring and considerate. She wasn't just my Realtor; she became my friend.
