What Our Clients Say

  Lori's dedication, expertise, and professionalism throughout the entire process was truly remarkable.

From the moment we had our first convo with Lori, we were impressed by her knowledge of the market and commitment to helping us achieve our goals. Her guidance and advice were invaluable, and her attention to detail ensured that every aspect of the sale was handled smoothly and efficiently.

Lori has a proactive approach, excellent communication skills, and unwavering positivity which made what could have been a stressful experience feel manageable. We always felt confident that we were in good hands, and her tireless efforts on our behalf did not go unnoticed.

Her dedication to her clients is evident in everything she does, and we feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with someone as skilled and caring as her.

Do not hesitate to hire Lori if you are in need of a top-notch realtor.

 I'd like to sincerely thank Lori Wakefield for her professionalism and honesty throughout the entire process of selling my mother's home quickly during a pandemic and winter storm!  She was very helpful, patient and made sure we were comfortable with the decisions made along the way.  I highly recommend Lori to anyone!

 If you're looking to buy a home in the Lakeway / Bee Cave area, Lori is your gal!  Lori helped me navigate a very tight inventory market in Lakeway to find the right home at the right price.  She is the consummate professional and knows all the ins and outs of what it takes to get houses sold and bought with her client's best interests at heart.

- Felix Ware

 Lori went above and beyond on every step of selling our home.  She made herself available at all times and we were treated with high priority.  I cannot recommend Lori enough!

- Justin Watts

 We recently moved to the Austin area from Idaho.  A friend recommended Lori to us and we were very pleased with our home-buying experience with her.  We flew in from Idaho on a weekend and had two days to find our new home.  Having never been to the area, we were unsure of where to look.  Lori arranged for us to look at houses all over the city and was very accommodating.  On our first day, she drove us from Georgetown to Buda making many stops in between.  On our second day, we focused on our desired area.  Then we were able to put in an offer on our home and it was accepted!  Each day Lori spent at least 8 hours with us, she went above and beyond.  She also helped the home-buying process to go smoothly.  Any questions we had were addressed and answered quickly.  Since we were in Idaho during the inspection, appraisal, and walk-through, Lori represented us when we couldn't physically be in the home.  She even set up a Skype call so we could see when she walked through our home.  We highly recommend Lori.

- Kathryn Magnum

 Lori really knows the Lakeway area and how best to get what you need.  She helped us both as selling agent and in our purchase.  We sold at desired price and we're able to negotiate a lower purchase price on our new home even in a hot market.

- Carl McLendon

As out-of-state sellers of our Austin rental property, we knew we needed a top-tier Real Estate professional to handle our transaction. After a rigorous search, Lori Wakefield stood out to be that person! She immediately found a wonderful stager for our home and it sold within 2 days for $25K over asking price with a 30 day escrow. She quickly found the right people to do minor repairs and followed each job order in a timely manner, ensuring completion well prior to 30 days. Lori is a true professional who puts her clients first. We would love to use her services again with our other Austin property as well.

- Louise and Jeff Smith

Lori Wakefield was an excellent realtor for us from first contact until far after our closing day. She has a wealth of knowledge about Austin real estate and listened not only to our original requests for our new home, but also paid attention to our likes and dislikes of the homes we looked at to help refine our search. When we traveled to Austin, she had several great options ready to go - within minutes of entering our home we knew it was the one, and she was able to have us under contract before the day ended. In the following weeks, through the onset of COVID, she helped us with home inspections, builder closing walks, being onsite to check work happening before we were able to move, and had a welcome basket waiting for our 1am arrival that took care of our family for our first few days after driving cross country. We couldn't have been more grateful. Lori is truly an exceptional realtor and person; we felt truly lucky to have her guidance and help in our home search and buying process.

- Kathryn Mangum

We would give Lori Wakefield six stars if that were possible. She was recommended by a friend who had her represent him in both the purchase and sale of a home in Lakeway. Our home was difficult to price due to its custom build, age, and location. Lori helped us to arrive at a price that was at the upper level of what could be expected, and considerably more than other realtors. We only needed to find one possible buyer and we were not rushed. After this buyer was found, she was able to work with us and the buyer to accomplish the sale at a good price. Her responses to us were immediate and she was able to close the sale in a short period of time.

- Dr. Barry Bowden

 Great service, comprehensive knowledge of market, honest input to achieve client goals, makes the process from market analysis, preparation, listing to close as easy as possible. Lori has successfully handled three property listings and transactions for us.

- Hugh Robertson

 Wonderful experience. Patient and listens to all needs, concerns and requirements.  Goes above and beyond to see you are happy with your purchase or sale.

- Jim Reid

 I highly recommend Lori Wakefield to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Austin.  I just purchased a home in the Lakeway area and her knowledge, judgment and temperament made the entire process extremely satisfying.  Lori's guidance was especially helpful, since I was moving my family from the east coast and knew very little about Austin.  After listening to our wants and needs, Lori knew exactly what to show us and never pressured us into any decisions.  We actually found a place we loved--in just two days--and Lori helped us negotiate a great price.  And after the sale was complete, she's continued to be a great resource for us as we learn a new city.

- John Weber

 Lori has helped us sell, build, buy, sell, lease, build, sell and has been amazing!  She's incredibly knowledgeable and went above and beyond for us  Even when we ran into challenges with our HOA when building, she was at every meeting ensuring we got exactly what we wanted.  If you are looking for an amazing agent that will help you every step of the way, we highly recommend Lori.

- Susie and Chad Franks, Schmidt Family Barbecue

 Lori worked hard for us!  She met at short notice, compiled a great list of viewings and was extremely friendly and responsive!  We feel so lucky to have worked with her!

- Anna Salinas

 Lori Wakefield has helped us buy and sell real estate transactions, 7 sales and purchase transactions and one lease transaction, over the past 8 years. Lori is simply on her game and is a solid addition to helping move real estate or acquire the right purchase. Her helpfulness scales up or down depending on level of experience. For me, I'm comfortable with real estate so she's been invaluable in the facilitation of the escrow as well as smoothing out the process so I don't have to worry so much about the details. She is my counsel and she grounds me when I have decisions to make. I simply couldn't have asked for a better person to be my sounding board and responding with carefully considered and experienced advice. I will also echo the previous person's evaluation {on Yelp} regarding Lori: if you text or call, you will receive a text or she will pick up or respond quickly. She's very responsive and aggressive when she needs to be. Whether you have or want a luxury home, starter home, vacant land, or that temporary shelter during the building phase of your new home or renovation, Lori is always there. Thank you Lori!

- Jeff Wise (Review on Yelp)

 Working with Lori is simply awesome.  We were sent Lori's way based on a referral from friends and we knew they implicitly trusted her with their home buying needs.  How did we know?  Well, they worked with Lori to purchase three homes in the past few years, and their parents also worked with Lori when buying a downtown condo and a lake house.

Lori listened to our needs and wants, respected our budget and never pushed us to put an offer on a house we didn't love.  We dealt with quite a few different sellers' agents throughout the process and Lori stayed on top of everything to make sure we received the prompt answers we needed.  (Some of the seller's agents were surprisingly slow which goes to show that not all agents are created equal.)

I never sent Lori an email without receiving a quick response and every text and voicemail went answered.  As a bonus, Lori was fun to be around!

I highly recommend Lori for your home buying and selling needs.  Tell her Lisa and Chad sent you. :)

- Lisa and Chad Huston

 We recently have a pending contract on our current home and purchased a new home with great help from Lori Wakefield.  We received multiple offers within 2 weeks and moved in a new home in 30 days.

Lori was great to work with.  She always answered our calls, listened to our concerns and questions.  She took the time to explain everything so that we understood our transaction every step of the way.  She was very conscientious and thought things through carefully providing us with the best information and advice.  She was diligent and stayed on top of problems that occurred making sure nothing was overlooked.

When we were with Lori for house hunting she was very pleasant after one house to another.  Her professional experience and easy going attitude had made us very comfortable when were looking at many houses in a long day.  She always had good suggestions to explore all options and was available at practically a moment's notice.  We felt like we had known her a long time and she was a trusted friend.

We would, without hesitation, recommend Lori Wakefield of Keller Williams Realty to others looking to sell, buy, or both.

- Se and Chau Le

 Lori, we want to thank you for your efforts and success in selling our homes.  The experience was a pleasant one and your professionalism and courtesy stood out above and beyond our past experiences.  The one thing that meant the most to us was your timely and accurate responses to our questions.  You never left us waiting and wondering.  We will most certainly refer you to others if the opportunity presents itself and you are more than welcome to refer potential clients to us for a recommendation.

- Daryl Clark and Julie Hawkins

  Thank you again for an amazing real estate experience from start to finish.  From you saving the day on {on another transaction}, to the deal falling through to searching new homes and model houses!  Thank you for all you have done to help us get back here!  We could not have done it without you - literally!  You were so thoughtful to stock the fridge and pantry! and the towels and plant!  I cannot thank you enough!  You made the big hectic move so much easier!  We are STILL trying to get settled, but are so thankful to be back.  Hope to see you around LTHS.  Love,

- Adrienne, Zach & the boys Kazarian  

 Hate it when I rate someone with all stars since when I look for ratings for other people or products, I sometimes question the authenticity.  However, that said, Lori is the real deal. 

Lori was introduced to me many years ago and helped me locate and purchase my first residence in Lakeway, TX in 2007.  As circumstances developed, in 5 years she was my agent of choice to list that home and during that time Lori went above and beyond in following up with all showing agents to continually get feedback as to the perception of our home, its terms of sale, etc.

Upon the successful sale of our first Austin home, Lori also assisted us in the purchase of our 2nd home just west of Dripping Springs.  She not only helped navigate me through the process but during our move we found a bountiful tray of sandwiches and drinks awaiting our arrival.

The story should have ended there, but again circumstances took hold and Lori was there, yet again this past June 2014, doing the same great job in the listing and sale of our home and the simultaneous lease of our temporary home as well as the purchase of our final one.

She took time in showing us available properties and never rushing us and a consistent, constant and reliable source of information and guidance.  Definitely not a stereotypical agent that's there to only list your property and never to be seen or heard again.  Her positive energy and quick wit has gotten us through some of our more stressful times.

I am very glad to give Lori this rating and this write-up.  If she treats you as well as she's treated my wife and I throughout the years, then you'll not regret signing on with her at your side.

- Jeff Wise (Review on Zillow)

 Lori is a great Realtor!  She is very effective, knowledgeable about the market and takes the effort to understand what you want in your future home.  We have bought and sold several homes with her and couldn't have been more pleased.

- Kathy and Craig Murphy

 Lori has assisted our family with our real estate transactions for years, always with a hardworking effort and good result.

- Bob Dorsett, Jr.

 Thanks for your help in locating the house that is rapidly becoming the home that we envisioned.  The reviews that I read before contacting you in the blind were "spot on".  you are very knowledgeable about real estate in the Lake Travis area and a pleasure to work with.

- Don and Sue Travis

 Lori, I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for making this an enjoyable and headache free transition for us.  I sincerely hope the Bracken family had the same positive experience throughout this transaction.  Alli and I are excited to grow our family in the great home the Brackens have built.

- Ace and Alli Schlameus

 For the record, Missy and I completely agree with Ace's sentiment - super smooth deal.  Thank you for being our realtor and friend.

- Brad and Missy Bracken

 Ms. Wakefield, We were entirely satisfied with your efforts on our behalf, and will not hesitate to recommend you to friends or engage your services for future transaction in the Austin area.

- Dr. Peter and Jacqui Frohman

 Lori, It was such a pleasure working with you on the house deal.  You are an absolute professional and just went above and beyond to make everything run so smoothly and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate it.  I really hope to work with you again soon!

- Jamie Novak

 Lori has been very helpful and professional.  We have worked with her and recommended her in the past and will continue to do so.  Would never think of calling anyone else.  She has helped us find and buy a home three times and helped us sell homes three times.  She has helped find a rental home.  She has also helped us buy land and is currently helping us sell land.
