For the last year and a half we have worked with Lori looking for the "right" house for us in Chatham. Lori spent endless hours showing us close to 30 homes before we found the one that we felt was right for us. We always thought we knew Chatham, having vacationed there many times over the last 40 years, but Lori educated us on so much more from not only the plusses and minuses to each area, but the laws governing wetlands, conservation land, flood plains and building codes. By the time we saw our house we knew instantly we were making the right decision because of everything we had learned from Lori. Lori was always a true professional throughout the long hunt. She never wasted our time, showing us only houses that she thought were the right fit or a good investment. She would often point out drawbacks or reasons why she didn't think we should consider a certain house if she felt legally or structurally the house was not sound. Lori's energy, positive personality and constant conscientiousness were much appreciated and admired by both my husband and myself and Lori became a good friend as well as our valued broker. I would highly recommend Lori as a broker to anyone looking for a house in Chatham. Her knowledge, expertise, energy and personality far surpasses any broker we have worked with in the past. Thank you, Lori! John and Pat O'Toole Westwood, Ma. Less ... More

Lori was by far the best real estate professional that we have ever had the pleasure to work with. She worked tirelessly over a three year period to find us just the right property for our needs. From the beginning she was friendly, reliable, prompt, easy to work with and above all honest. Her knowledge of Chatham and the surrounding areas was exemplary. Lori was well versed in the positives and negatives of all areas we explored and always on top of the market. Any questions we had from zoning, mill rates, property setbacks, progress of the Chatham sewer project, and local politics were quickly and accurately addressed. While all of these qualities make for a comfortable buying experience the fact that we were out of state made her qualities all the more important. Although we have successfully finished our search and closed on a property Lori continues to be available to lend assistance to any concern that arises. We not only call her a real estate professional we more importantly call her our first friend in Chatham. Less ... More

Lori was a tireless agent in helping us find the perfect home. It was so nice working with such a knowledgeable and professional agent on the house hunt - she really knows the area well! Importantly, she also has a warm and friendly style that made the entire experience so very enjoyable.

Lori was referred to us by friends who recently purchased in Chatham. They could not say enough good things about her and they were right! Lori is professional, friendly, knows the local real estate market and works non-stop until you find the right home and close. She does not disappear after the closing. She has called to see if we need any help with anything and has been a valuable resource in locating contractors. Lori is the Best!

We first met Lori around 2006/2007. We have been working with her ever since to find our dream vacation/retirement home. It took quite some time, but we just recently closed, and we couldn't be happier. Lori was always helpful, informative, and patient, and always had our best interests at hear. She has become over the years, a good friend, as well as trusted realtor. We would recommend Lori to anyone looking for a home in Chatham.

We met Lori when we looked at one of her listings last fall. We did not buy then, but were very impressed with her knowledgeable and and helpful approach to the buying process, so we contacted her again when we were ready to look some more. We found a house we loved. Lori was totally great throughout the buying process. No question was unimportant. She clearly works very hard for both the buyer and the seller. I would recommend her to anyone without reservation, if you need a fantastic realtor I can not imagine anyone better! We look forward to many years with out family in our lovely Chatham home.

Lori was very instrumental in the entire process of selling our parents home. She took responsibility for the painting , staging, landscaping ,listing and the most inportant detaiI the sale. She handled herself professionally and without her help trying to sell my parents house that they built and lived in for thirty years from San Francisco would of been almost impossible. She handled all details, inspections, decisions and made our lives easy in a very emotional and long distance transaction. Lori works long and hard for her customers and I would recommend without hesitation. Less ... More

My husband and I are from out of state and saw this house we thought might fit the bill for us in our present situation. We called the number on the sign, BOOM she was there! And it got better.......... She was honest and straightforward very helpful, answered all our questions and offered to help us with deliveries etc before the move in. What a gem Chatham and surrounding areas have! Plus she's cute and has a great personality!! BUT very professional!!!!

We looked at some Chatham homes with Lori and ultimately placed a very serious bid on one. During the whole process Lori demonstrated a caring, warm and completely professional "get it done", manner. She is the consummate real estate pro, and I would not hesitate to highly recommend her to any serious buyer/seller.

You guys were great! I'm glad it all worked out in the end and you will be 'in the neighborhood'! I look forward to seeing you around town. Thanks again!

Lori Jurkowski is really great! I highly recommend her for both buyers and sellers on the Cape. Lori does a beautiful job staging the house and consistently checks on it to make sure the property always looks pristine and attractive. She went above and beyond my expectations in arranging for minor updates and regular maintenance, and in drawing buyers to see the house. She's upbeat and positive and a joy to work with. Once the property was under contract, she helped ensure the sale went through smoothly and facilitated friendly negotiation between us and the buyers. My attorney even commented that she stood out among the realtors she has worked with on Cape Cod. I couldn't be more pleased with her service and the outcome of my sale. Less ... More

Work with Lori. You can't do better and you won't be sorry. Real estate transactions require more than knowledge and advice, which Lori has in spades. Just as, or more importantly is responsiveness and follow through. Need her and she is there. If she says she will accomplish a task, you can bank on it being accomplished on time an on budget. Look no further.

Lori Jurkowski, is a fantastic realtor. She helped us sell our home in Chatham in record time. Her advice on staging our home and getting it "move in" ready proved to be invaluable. She helped us with all aspects of getting the house sale ready, from staging to being available to letting workers in. The house sold, and we are now settled in our new abode, and very pleased! If you are looking for a new home on Cape Cod, Lori Jurkowski provides the best most professional service. You will not be disappointed. Less ... More

Lori is fantastic! I've been fortunate enough to have bought/sold a half dozen homes in my lifetime and Lori is, hands down, the best agent I've worked with. She represented me as a buyer's broker and couldn't have been better. She's proactive, works incredibly hard, is thorough, and isn't worried about ruffling a few feathers in order to represent her client's best interest. She handles even the smallest request with gusto, always delivering more information than one would expect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to a friend and will use her again if the opportunity arises. Thanks Lori! Less ... More

Lori was fabulous. She was friendly, responsive, honest, and understood exactly what I was looking for. She didn't try to talk me into anything, and didn't rush me. Since I purchased the house she continues to be helpful. I made a new friend in addition to having my first good experience with a realtor! i recommend her with no reservations.

I have been involved in a half dozen real estate transactions in the last 10 years (helping my parents, my sister, dealing with other real estate transactions, and of course, buying a house on Cape Cod). Without any question, Lori is the best agent I have come across. Not only has she mastered the skills of her profession; not only does she have intimate and precise knowledge of the local market; not only is she pleasant to work with and readily available. She works tirelessly and actively to REALLY help people (whether she is selling for you, or, like us, helping you buy a wonderful property that she has located for you). She absolutely earns every penny of her commissions...which is something I haven't felt before (and this is not a criticism of the other agents I have worked with...rather, it is the highest praise for Lori). Having Lori work for you is literally a joy...and before meeting Lori, I would never use the word "joy" to describe any part of a real estate deal. I can't recommend her highly enough! Less ... More

My husband and I purchased a home in Chatham and used Lori as our agent. She was terrific. Always professional and available. She quickly figured out what our needs were and lead us through the whole process. She was honest and never pushy! We felt she was a true advocate for us from start to finish. After we purchased the home she was equally helpful with expediting the process and making sure that everything was perfect when we moved in. Lori has stayed in touch and is someone we know we will keep a relationship with. Highly recommended!!!! Less ... More

We hit the jackpot when we met Lori. My husband & I had been looking for a home on the Cape starting about 10 years ago. In 2003, we put our search on hold due to illness. Last summer, we rented in Chatham, MA specifically to find a summer residence. Without contacting previous realtors, I happened to stop in at a local open house (one of Lori's listings) near a beach we preferred. That July 4th weekend, we began a special relationship with Lori. Tirelessly, she worked with us scoping the Chatham beach areas. When we didn't find something, she sent special notices to neighbors about our search. We spoke to her daily -- a great deal of the search was initially between she and my husband. Then, when something was really interesting, we all went to have a look. We did all of this in between visits with family . . . not an easy task! At summer's end, we had 3 homes we were toying with. We ended up negotiating the best place long distance from the southwest! Lori helped us with the perfect ending. She recommended and secured all of the following: 1) a builder for renovations; 2) an attorney for the closing 3) insurance agent for our home We closed on new home just before Christmas 2010. You won't find a more personable & gifted realtor. Be sure to contact her! Less ... More

Lori both sold and then bought houses for us. Each experience was great, smooth transactions. She read the market correctly in a difficult environment, marketed our property aggressively and brought buyers to the able. When buying she learned what we like and focused the search based on the experience. In both cases she went above and beyond. I highly recommend her.

Well where should I start? Before we had a buyers agent we were attending a lot of open houses on our own to see if we saw anything we liked. We met a lot of realtors during this process that wanted to be our buyers agent, many of whom were very nice. We went to see Lori's open house and fell in love with her. She was so passionate about selling her listing, and took an interest in us personally hoping that we could get an offer in and get the house. Her follow-up was great as well. You could tell she was someone you wanted on your side working for you when buying or selling a home. We didn't end up putting in an offer for that house, but we hired Lori as our buyers agent and looked at at least 20 homes. I've lost count at this point. Lori was awesome about showing them to us, pointing out the pluses and minuses and pointing out other relevant listings. Once the offer stage started is when Lori was the most valuable, which is saying something because she was great during the looking process. She helped us put in an offer on a house that ended up being unsuccessful, but she was a perfect advocate during the process. We were about to put an offer in on a second house and then our dream house became available...and to a large extent because of Lori, we got it! She was tenacious and devoted to us getting the house. We couldn't have done it without her. A key thing about Lori is that she is always available and always responsive. There was never a time when we were waiting on her for something or she didn't follow-up on something. To me, that's amazing. It's also very important when you are dealing with extremely time sensitive things like putting offers in on homes. We are very glad that we found such a good realtor...and a friend! Less ... More

Although Laurie was not our realtor and was representing the seller, both prior to and after the sale, she made herself available to answer any of our questions. She was very well prepared and communicated a comfort level that was reassuring to us. Because we were new homeowners and unfamiliar with the heating/airconditioning specifics of our condo, Laurie volunteered to check the house to make sure that the a/c was properly set while we were away in NY. Also, amazingly, because we were not able to get to the Cape to prepare for a predicted Storm, Laurie went to the house and brought the patio furniture into the garage. Also, she was invaluable in offering names of local contacts e.g. a terrific locksmith and local restaurants. Laurie represents the best of her profession and my husband and I would recommend her without any reservation, to friends looking to buy on the Cape. Sincerely Brigid and Ed Kenney Less ... More

In one of the toughest real estate markets in many years, Lori provided dedicated, detail-oriented service and creative marketing expertise that yielded several offers and ultimately got our vacation home sold. Her passion for her job sets her apart. She represented our home like it was her own and treated us like partners in the process. She understands the market and was there for us every step of the way.
