"I have had the privilege of working with Lori King on a variety of levels. Lori has worked with me in pursuing thoughts on my current residence and whether it is better to continue to reside there, sell or lease the house. Although I have not reached a decision Lori has always been available to speak with me, answer my myriad of questions and contribute he expert thoughts. I hold title to a residence in Studio City that I have chosen to put on the rental market utilizing another of Lori's talents. I have first hand watched Lori balance the fine line of achieving the best rental price possible for the property and at the same time doing no disservice to the tenant. I am self employed as a divorce lawyer and choose no to be involved with operating the rental property on a daily basis. For a nominal fee that I pay to Lori she takes care of all of that for me. One of the lesser known talents of Lori is that of an expert witness. Being a divorce lawyer real property issues are raised in many of the cases in which I become involved. Those issues often call for expert testimony regarding things such as value and listing issues. It has been Lori's testimony that has often facilitated settlement or has given a Judge guidance as to ruling on the real property issues. Lori King is a gem, and as I said earlier, on so many different levels." - Hugh L.

"I have done business with Lori since 1998. I bought and then sold a house in Studio City through her agency Ramsay Shilling in 2012. She found me a rent house in VV where I lived before moving to Las Vegas in 2015. Retuning to LA in 2018, Lori helped me buy a new house. She's hardworking, pays attention to her job and then goes the extra mile to help with details even after the house deal has closed. Can say enough good things about Lori." - Philip N.
"I lucked out when I first met Lori back in 2015. She's been taking care of my rental unit since I met her and I couldn't be happier with tenants she has introduced me to. I feel confident that she always go above and beyond and for that reason I strongly recommend her." - Giovanna O.
"Lori is the best!!!! We've worked with her several times and she has always went above and beyond to make things as quick, efficient and easy as possible.

We recently sold our home with her from across the country and she made it so quick and easy for us. Thank you Lori!!!!" - Breanne R.
"Lori is our property manager on a rental house we've been renting for 13 years. I still remember the first time my boyfriend and I, now husband and I, looked at this property. We came in with what we thought may be some questionable background but were very upfront about our dog, kids, recent move, jobs, ex's, etc and just put it out there how we really needed a home for our kids. With so many people that were looking at the house and what we thought might be negatives, We were so ecstatic to get a call saying we got the house! She was and still is a kind, compassionate person who took a chance on us and gave my husband And I, and our kids and dog.... a new beginning. And here we are.. still in the same rental 13 years later. She's easy to get a hold of. Returns calls promptly either via call, text or messages. She's great and we are glad to still be in our little Burbank home, with a wonderful owner and amazing realtor/property manager. I know should the time ever come that we need to get out of our rental and into a new home, she could find the perfect place within our budget. But for now we are happy and content in the rental that has become our family home. The home where we've watched our girls become women.. graduate elementary, middle school and high school. . Go off to college. Move away.. Have our first grandbaby.. said goodbye to our 18 year old dog :. ( All the memories, the good, the bad, the challenges and struggles .. are priceless. Thank you Lori for believing in us!" - Kim K.
"I cannot express how grateful I am for meeting Lori King. My husband and I met Lori in 2003 when we rented a house in Burbank. She was so kind and helpful. We corresponded with her as our property manager for 10 years and she was always professional, friendly and on top of anything we needed. When we were ready to purchase our own home we called Lori. With her 25 years of experience in Los Angeles real estate she has the connections and knowledge necessary when buying a home. She is always calm, cool and collected; something valuable when you are stressing out with all the paperwork and requirements you are going through in the home buying process! Her confidence and demeanor put you at ease, you truly know you are in good hands. We bought our first house in a short sale that closed escrow in 45 days thanks to Lori's connections in the real estate community. After 3 years in our starter home we needed more space and called Lori again to help. Lori knows exactly what she's doing and had a game plan for our open houses and showings. Her strategy worked and we sold our house within a week and a half for $10,000 over asking. She is always reachable by email, phone or text and returns calls promptly. We found a house we loved and asked her to put an offer in right away. We offered a higher price than asking to ensure we would get it (per her advice) and we outbid another offer they had just received! They accepted our offer that day and we got the house! I highly recommend Lori King if you are buying or selling a house or both! You cannot beat her 25 years of experience! She was so great to work with and if we ever decide to sell our house again we will be using her without a doubt!" - Kira M.
"Lori is amazing, period. I'll be 100% candid... I can be difficult...very, very difficult. I'm opinionated, I'm judgmental, I have high standards, i'm not very flexible, I'm frugal, I refuse to settle, and my patience was wearing thin after 6+ months Of looking at houses and falling out of escrow two times. I simply couldn't find a home I liked that would work out. A mutual friend suggested I call Lori and I'm so glad I did. She had the patience of a saint, never ending positivity, and always, always answered my calls and made herself available to me. (Even when I'm sure she wanted to chuck her phone out the window when she knew it was me calling!) She has a great sense of humor, decades of experience in real estate, and a work ethic that exhausted even me at times which is hard to do. If you don't have a realtor or our having second thoughts about who you're currently working with, I strongly encourage you to consider giving Lori a call. I know you will not be disappointed. I can't thank her enough. We found my house, she went above and beyond every step of the way (and continues to!)... I genuinely can't wait to work with her when I'm ready to buy a second home. Lori, you're the best. Thank you again for everything." - J L.
"In the 1980's, we bought and sold a townhouse with the help of Lori's mother. The experience was so positive that when we were buying another home in Burbank I turned to Lori King. Lori quickly identified the best property and negotiated a fair price and worked diligently with an extremely uncooperative sellers agent to get the deal closed. Since that transaction four years ago, Lori has been a priceless resource in our search for additional property. Always available with the best information in the Burbank, Toluca Lake, Studio City area as will as the West Side and Marina Del Rey. My children are currently looking for homes in the LA area and my only advice to them is "Call Lori King". Lori's Mother was "The Condo Queen". Lori is at the very least "The Real Estate Princess"!" - Scott B.
"I have known Lori King personally and professionally for over 12 years. She has helped me and everyone I know since I moved to Los Angeles from renting my first house to buying my first home. She held my hand every step of the way and if it wasn't for her I wouldn't own the wonderful home I do now. I have also trusted her to handle very sensitive real estate transactions for celebrity and high net worth clients. When it comes to honesty, integrity, diligence and availability there couldn't be a more pleasant, friendly and trustworthy lady to take you every step of the way." - J W.
"Lori King is amazing! This was the 2nd home transaction she has closed for me. Lori is very knowledgeable in every aspect of real estate sales. Smart, savvy when it came to helping me get my house ready to sell and pricing my home competitively on the market. She was a great negotiator when it came to getting the right price & conditions of the sale. Lori was tenacious about advertising my property & keeping it fresh, front & center on the market. She was the calming voice of reason when things beyond our control would start to go haywire. Her decision making is solid and she has the right answer for everything! She knows her stuff! If Yelp had 6 star ratings, she'd get one from me. Sincerely, Another Very Satisfied Client" - Kenny A.
