From the very first time we walked through a house with you, and all the way through the selling and buying process, you were personal and professional-giving us your honest perspective but never trying to persuade us one way or another. When we had questions, you always responded quickly and clearly never leaving us at a loss for information. We cannot thank you enough for helping us to find our new home!" -ZS

    Lou Anne Ford is always professional while working with us and gets to the heart of the matter at hand. Her communications skills (phone, email, text) are outstanding and very much appreciated! We were never left wondering "what's going on with our home sale?" Lou Anne is friendly and reliable. If she says she'll call you at a certain time, she does. She has a lot of experience selling real estate and knows the TC area well,
  • Buyer review
    I have worked with numerous brokers throughout my life and have moved a lot, including some international moves. Lou Anne is my favorite broker. She is very experienced and well connected in the community. She is very easy to communicate with and responds to my communications nearly immediately. Her attention to detail is amazing and makes these fairly complex and stress-inducing transacts easy and fun. She is the first person I will call when I consider my next move.

  • Seller review
    Lou Anne Ford is a wonderful person to have help you sell your home or property. She is knowledgeable, fair, honest, and will represent you to her fullest ability. It was her personality that won me over immediately, but then her professionalism was right there to follow it up. Should we have any realtor needs in the future, Lou Anne will be the first person we call.
