"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.
"Lori is the best realtor!!!!! I bought 2 homes from her. She is very attentive in what you are looking for.

"Lori is a gem of a realtor! We have worked with her in buying, selling and renting multiple properties. She listens intently, is incredibly patient and always remains flexible. And she's fun!

"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. She is very smart and has handled our every need professionally and expertly. Both in the rental market and the sales market. 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.
“What can I say, Lori is amazing. We love her. She's been taking care of us for almost 20 years. We started out renting a house in Burbank that she was managing, then she helped us buy our first home, which was a short sale that she urged us to take a chance on, we ended up making a ton of profit on it, allowing us to afford an even nicer home, which she helped us buy and are in now. She's super sweet, very knowledgeable, and hard working. She'll be very honest with you and help calm your nerves, as buying a home can be a stressful process. As I said, we love Lori and consider her a friend. She's literally helped us through some of the biggest decisions of our lives. You will not regret using Lori, if you, for some reason, are on the fence.” - Rich P.
“Lori helped us buy our first home. She was incredibly patient in introducing us to the home-buying process in great detail. She gave us great advice to make competitive offers. She handled some difficult conversations with the seller's agent gracefully, and she was ultimately the reason we were able to close. Lori is extremely persistent and a great person to have on your side!” - Alannah H.
“Thank Goodness for Lori! I had to sell my house during COVID and find another within a very tight time schedule. I had a lot of personal and physical challenges that Lori handled so gracefully and went above & beyond to help me with. Lori continually "touched base" with me and answered all my questions thoroughly. I have a young daughter that she brought into the process and made comfortable, which delighted me so that she could feel involved with her new home. Lori is incredibly professional and also helped me with everything from painters, handy-man and electricians. I could have not done this type of move during this tough time without her expertise and dedication.” - Madi E.
The process of selling a home can be stressful and confusing. It's incredibly important to have the right team by your side throughout it. Lori was an absolute professional from the first time we met her. She walked through our home, assessed it in detail and then sat down to give us the steps that would follow. She priced it right based on the market, had professional photos taken and then the whirlwind began.Throughout the process she allowed us to be in the driver seat, but she was the engine powering it along. She was respectful to our personal space while keeping a stream of potential buyers coming through the home. She also called us regularly to provide the updates on what was happening behind the scenes. There were a few bumps along the way and Lori always remained optimistic and had backup plans ready to go. The house sold in four weeks to us putting it on the market! We are so grateful to have had such an expert in our corner. Thank you so much!
- Teresa P.
“Lori was able to get me a house when I had failed to even get a counter offer on 7+ other properties while working with another agent. Lori is an industry veteran with decades of experience. She is exactly the person you need to help get you a home in the insane market that is LA in 2021. Lori was able to key in on exactly what we needed to be doing to have our offers accepted. She was able to foresee every single potential issue that stood in our way and helped us navigate this crazy and stressful process. In addition to being an absolute professional, Lori is also a total sweetheart and a fun person to be around. I am actually kind of sad that we've closed on our property and aren't on the phone laughing with Lori all the time now. I can't recommend Lori enough!” - Kevin D.
5 HUGE STARS! I'd give 6 if I could. Lori is, in a word, extraordinary. She is more than just a real estate agent. She'll fight tirelessly for you to close the deal, while managing a grace through it all that few can achieve. But what makes Lori truly unique is how "in the trenches" she is with you. Deals can be roller coasters, and somehow, Lori manages to pull off the impossible-seeming "how-does-she-even-do-it?" kind of job of being both guide and companion, all at once. She's honest to a "T," direct and clear. She's one of the good guys, and the only realtor I'd call. - Ethan S.
