November 2019
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.

We would not have sold our house without Lou Anne Ford. She provided great guidance through the entire process. She also helped with the purchase of our new home, with the same excellent service.

She is always professional, approachable and knowledgeable. We will definitely recommend her to others who are sellingor buying.

The sale went so quickly that most of your questionnaire doesn't apply.

Lou Anne had no trouble handling the speed with which the sale and closing took place. She took charge from the beginning.

Lou Anne was knowledgeable and attentive, followed through on her promises, negotiated well with our interests in mind, stayed focused & on task. At no time did she give me cause to be concerned, so it was easier to trust that even when glitches happened, everything was in order & ready to be concluded. Lou Anne's experience in the business, understanding of and involvement in the area & community make her a most reliable and resourceful asset with whom to do business. I have already recommended her to others.

Lou Anne Ford is an experienced realtor who thoughly understands the dynamics of interpersonal relationships - an important and necessary skill when dealing with clients' who lives are turned upside down during the process of buying and selling homes. This along with her technical prowess puts her in the upper echelon of realestate agents. We do not hesitate to give Lou Anne our highest recommendation.

It's difficult to put in to words how working with Lou Anne Ford has been for us, but I'll try. She does the work of 4 or 5 regular real estate agents. She's prompt, accessible and her local knowledge and level of professionalism can not be matched. She's easy to work with and a wealth of knowledge when you're new to a community and need to find resources. We've seen her patience with us as clients as well as with other agents & homeowners. She's never lost her cool even when she had a right to. We consider her a friend and recommend her to all of our friends in need of a real estate agent. You have a rare gem in Lou Anne!

I have used Lou Anne Ford twice in the past five years. Once to buy a house and once to sell. Both times she made the process about as easy as it could be for me. Wouldn't hesitate to use her again in the future.

Lou Anne Ford was great. She always answered calls promptly and was personable every time we spoke. We felt she did lots of research on our home and area and that all that research paid off in the end.

We definitely will contact Lou Anne for any other real estate needs we may have in the future.

Lou Anne was a blessing. She had things under control and her knowledge locally was of great importance. At the closing the listing agent with Another company messes things up and Lou Anne was on it and even provided reports to title agent to complete paperwork. She would be my agent of preference if asked.

Lou Anne Ford helped me sell my home and more recently a lot and handled both sales expertly. She also helped me purchase a condominium that was to be built. She went above and beyond as an agent to help me sort out that difficult process and acted as a huge support for me with the builder when he tried to cut corners. She is honest, kind, very knowledgable, and has great attention to detail. I highly recommend Lou Anne Ford to anyone that I can. She is an excellent realtor and will be your advocate in the buying/selling process. I would not use another realtor!

Lou Anne was extremely professional, efficient, and listened to what I was looking for in a house. She followed up on all questions I had and went above and beyond to see that buying my first home was a smooth and exciting process! Since this was my first home, she took the time to explain the process and documents to me and looked out for my best interests when inspecting and closing on my house. I would recommend anyone to have Lou Anne as their agent!

Lou Ann was referred to me about a year and a half ago. I was in search for a rental property. Although we did not find a rental through Lou Ann and instead I found a rental through Craigs List, Lou ann couldn't have been more helpful. She even researched the house we chose to rent, to ensure it was legitimate. Given it was on Craigs List, she was concerned for us that it could be a scam. Because Lou Ann was so willing to go the extra mile for me when there really wasn;t anything in it for her, I knew that I would choose her as my agent when I finally decided to buy a house. Lou Ann was wonderful to work with, when it came to searching for a home. She really cared about our needs and was constantly communicating with us during the buying process. Lou Ann has also given us other referrals for work that we plan to do on our new home. In a nut shell....we love Lou Ann!!
