Bought a Single Family home in Petaluma, CA.

Lori LaFranchi knows Sonoma County very well. She needed all of her knowledge, awareness and empathy dealing with us. As victims of the Tubb’s Fire in Northern California, we had a lot of ideas about what we wanted and what we thought we needed. Throughout our search she listened, counseled and cajoled, allowing us to find a great property well within our budget. We highly recommend her as a thoughtful, personal advocate. She is flexible, available and personable. She made a difficult process a pleasure.

Sold a Single Family home in Santa rosa, CA.

Lori is amazing! She went above and beyond helping getting my house ready to sell. She did research all along making sure that the house was ready for sale. She set up and scheduled inspections and repairs before listing the house. She sold it quickly, with multiple offers for over asking. She communicates well, and is easily accessible. I highly recommend Lori!
