Personal Profile

Your Personal REALTOR for South and North Carolina. Lorie represents home buyers and sellers. Lorie is committed to giving you personal and professional service. Lorie will listen to her client's needs and utilize her keen negotiation skills to ensure a successful transaction!

Lorie was born and raised in Rutherford County, NC. She spent summers on Lake Lure growing up, where at one time, her Father also had a successful Century 21 office. Real Estate is in her blood! Later, Lorie decided the medical field was where her passion was at at that time, so she acted in many medical capacities from nursing assistant and as Administrator in Charge of a 44 bed Assisted Living Home. After 18 years in the medical field, it was time for a change. So, in 2013, Lorie and her family moved to Lake Bowen, SC, and Lorie decided to go into Real Estate. She obtained her license for SC through the Palmetto School of Real Estate and joined Century 21 Blackwell & Co. There has been no turning back! She went on to also obtain her NC license to continue to serve friends and family in NC, and has since moved into the Chesnee area where her and her husband, Casey, have found their dream home and Farm. They also built a family business, The Barn at Balken Farms wedding and event venue.

Lorie is truly invested in her area, from Greenville, Spartanburg, Inman, Lake Bowen, and Chesnee in SC to Tryon, Asheville, Lake Lure, and Rutherford County in NC. She is familiar and eager to help you in all your real estate needs.

Lorie enjoys spending time with her family which consists of her husband, Casey, her four children, and 3 grandchildren. Lorie is actively involved in her community and stays well connected to other professionals in the real estate field.

Charm Ellis with Buice Realty in Gaffney, SC (who represented us on the purchase of our SC property) referred us to Lorie. Immediately upon talking with her and meeting her, we felt we had known her our entire lives. She was quick to understand our needs and worked diligently with us to purchase the property in Statesville, NC. She was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, empathetic and effiicient and we would recommend her to anyone.

We live out of state plus we needed to find a house fast since we had already started working in the area. Lorie was so nice and patient with us that first day when she showed us about 16 houses in one day! We were all worn out at the end of that day, but the house we ended up buying was one of those 16. We knew after that first day we had found the realtor who was perfect for us! Not many realtors would have had the patience to spend that full day showing houses THEN handling ALL of our many questions with such grace.

I had been trying to sell my two tracts of land since 2008 . I listed both parcels of land with Lori in February 2019 and the first one was sold fast and we closed on it in April 2019 and she had the second parcel under contract by October 2019 and we closed on it January 2020 . My wife and I think she did an excellent job selling our land for us . We could not ask for a realtor to work any harder than she did . One thing Lori told me when we listed our property was that I would not find another realtor that would work any harder for me than she would and that she would try her best to sell our property because if it did not sell then I would not make any money and she would not either . After our selling results I believe she did work harder for us than any one else that we listed with in the past .

Lorie did an excellent job selling our property

When you get two lands sells in less than a year on property that had been for sell for eleven years you can't ask for any better service than that .

I would recommend Lorie to sell your property.

Lorie sold my house within 48 hours of being listed. She knew we were eager to sell and had it under contract on the second day of being listed. We used Lorie to buy our new home as well. Closings happened fast and smoothly. Would recommend Lorie to anyone.

Lorie done a great job making sure our home sold quickly, in order for us to be able to quickly purchase our new home to be closer to family and friends. We were in a huge hurry, and Lorie made it a priority to get things done in a quick manor for our closings to be set and for us to be able to move quickly and smoothly. She made the Home Buying and Selling process very easy.
