Client Testimonials

Average Rating:

We had the pleasure of having Lori MacRae represent us in selling our West Hamilton home. From the very first meeting, Lori was always very positive and sincere in how she worked with us. Through the process, she was very attentive in addressing any questions or concerns that we had and you could see she genuinely prioritizes her client's best interests. What impressed me the most was the fact that Lori would go at our pace in terms of how and when we wanted to list the house, but at the same she would educate us through the process using a fact based approach showing us the necessary comps and data points that allowed us to make an informed decision on how best to list our home for sale. This listing strategy worked out very well for us, as we had received multiple offers on our home. Even in this instance, I could see Lori work the phones with the different agents to get us the best price possible that was above our own expectations. For those of you looking for a sincere and pleasant agent that will work in your best interest, I highly recommend giving Lori a call.

My name is Somayeh and I am a newcomer to Canada. My husband, daughter and I arrived on August 5th from Iran. I had reached out to Lori via Linkedin in April and asked if she could help our family lease a house. Help is an understatement. She showed us numerous houses until we found one that ticked all of the boxes- an upper level of a house with a yard where our daughter can play and in a family friendly neighborhood with good schools nearby. It is not easy finding a place as newcomers but Lori helped us every step of the way and she is still helping us even though we found the house over four months ago. She is patient, knowledgeable, dedicated, organized and has wonderful communication skills. We would strongly recommend that you give Lori a call for all of your real estate needs!

I am so grateful that Lori could help purchase not only our first home, but one that ended up being more than we ever could have imagined! With the current state of the housing market, we were prepared for the process of looking for and buying a house to be overwhelming, stressful and disheartening. After watching many of our friends undergo a long, discouraging and unsuccessful house hunting journey, we assumed that it would be the same for us. On the contrary, we had such a positive experience working with Lori. She always made us feel heard and respected. Lori is so genuine, positive and encouraging. Her prompt responsiveness and proficiency gave us confidence that we were in good hands, and gave us hope that we would eventually find the right place for us. And we did! We got such an amazing house that we both absolutely love, at a price that we are very happy with. You're in good hands with Lori, it is clear to see that she really has your best interest in mind.

Lori is the epitome of everything you could want in a real estate agent. She is knowledgeable, professional and so well organized. In this very demanding market, Lori was able to find me exactly the property that I wanted and walk me through all the ins and outs of purchasing a condo. There was an ease about the way Lori managed situations with a warm, enthusiastic and energetic approach. She explained any issues with complete clarity and ensured that I was not signing anything I didn’t understand. I could tell from our first interactions that she was someone who truly loves what she does and she handled all my questions and concerns in such a positive and proactive manner. I could call her anytime and she responded with professionalism and understanding. I highly recommend Hamilton REALTOR Lori MacRae and found her to be an absolute pleasure to work with.

Pauline Harley, Southampton, Ontario

An absolutely wonderful experience, we could not be happier! We engaged Lori MacRae's services, through Judy Marsales Realty, for the purchase of our new home earlier this year and the sale of our existing property. We actually bought before putting our existing property on the market and Lori made a potentially stressful transaction into a wonderful experience. Lori’s energetic and enthusiastic approach put us at ease every step of the process. She was full of amazing suggestions and delightful ideas that made both the purchase and the sale a pleasure. Her attention to detail on matters of both the home and the contractual process let us know we were in the right hands. The Marsales team did a superb job marketing the property and Lori’s inter-personal skills, with the other realtors, was just another advantage. Allyson and I could not offer enough praise and appreciation for her efforts with us, and highly recommend our REALTOR Lori MacRae and the Marsales team. Sincerely, The Dodges.

This is not the first time we have bought and sold, actually it is our 4th time. Lori sold our house for substantially over asking price in just one viewing. Literally our house was on the market for mere hours. Little did we know just how hard it would be to find a house to buy. We had a firm budget and a ton of non-negotiable requirements for a new house. It literally seemed impossible. Lori really understood what we needed and did not hesitate to tell us how the house we were viewing met or did not meet our requirements. Even when we started to feel we better "settle" she would tell us to hold on and that our house was waiting for us. I am not sure when Lori sleeps as it seemed she was helping us find a home 24 hours a day. Lori found us the PERFECT home that fell right in our budget, met all our needs and all our pets needs. She even had the idea to to include a little personal note with our offer saying how much we would cherish our chosen house. I think it went a long way into helping us secure the house. The sellers market is so hot right now that you need that extra push to really stand out in a sea of offers. I think it is worth mentioning that I have a friend on the West Coast who is a Realtor and I asked her to help me find one here who would be a "good fit" for our family. She phoned five or six Realtors and after her conversation with Lori she called me and said "I think Lori MacRae is a perfect REALTOR for you". I would not hesitate to tell anyone to use Lori. Hands down she is the best Realtor we have ever used. The very best part is her follow up. Just because we found our house our relationship is not over. She regularly checks in to see how we are doing and even offered to help with our garage sale. Thanks again for everything Lori!

Kim Bertling and Lori MacRae recently sold our house in Ancaster in mere hours! When we started looking for a new property they both worked tirelessly to find something within our price range and to fit all our special needs for our pets. Let me just say it was a huge task. Buying a property can be so stressful but not with Lori and Kim. They never gave up looking to find us just the right house and they did it and more! Buying or selling these ladies have got you covered.
