Tech savvy Team Leader for Team Lorenz. Specializing in higher-end homes and vacant land. With over 34 years of real estate experience, you will have confidence when working with Rick or his Team.
About The Team
We are a group of 5 energetic, dedicated individuals who love to help buyers and sellers in their real estate needs. Three of us are licensed: 2 buyer specialists and the team leader who does a little of both. To make sure all of the paperwork and Internet functions occur as flawlessly as possible, there are 2 admin team members: one transaction coordinator and a marketing/internet specialist. Several of our team are graduates of Howard Brinton Universities. Two are members of The Luxury Home Marketing Institute and 2 are Certified Residential Specialists In addition, Rick is a member of the Allen F. Hainge CyberStars a Mastermind-group of approximately 200 tech savvy Realtors worldwide. I invite you to take a look at our website with over 1000 pages of very useful information. It's far more than listings, it contains descriptions and maps of numerous neighborhoods around the County, many virtual tours of the area, lists of the employment opportunities in Durango and information on all the golf courses as well as recreation and statistical information. Here is a link to that site: Durango real estate best website
Good team chemistry is important to all of us. One year we all went houseboating on Lake Powell. We have even offered our team....in a charity auction....to be "chef for a night" to the highest bidder. We bought the food, cooked the dinner...including flaming bananas foster for dessert...and even did the dishes. It was a blast. For the last 10 years we have raised food for the Durango Food Bank at our annual client party.…well over 10,000 pounds of food, in all.
Areas of Expertise
Not only do our clients recognize us as being experts working with buyers, but over the last four years no other mega broker or team has successfully taken more buyersto the closing table than Team Lorenz. That covers Durango, Cortez, Pagosa Springs, Montrose and even all the way to Grand Junction Colorado. My buyer specialists know the market; they know what is out there for sale and they may look at 100 homes in a month. I often kiddingly say to a prospective buyer "If you want a house with pink striped carpet in it, just ask my gals because they probably know two or three already."
When you work in the town the size of Durango you have to do a little of everything. We regularly sell million-dollar homes, farm and ranch land and even commercial property. One of the big advantages to our Team is the 34+ years of experience Rick brings to the table. There is very little that he hasn't seen. With the difficult market that is out there today, it's good to know that there is somebody at the "helm of the ship" making sure that we avoid "turbulent waters".
I gave Team Lorenz a challenge that was against the odds, sell my business in 6 months or I'll close it down. In today's economic conditions, selling a business is extremely hard, but Rick Lorenz, Nicole and the Team took the challenge. From the beginning I was impressed by the exposure and reach of their marketing. This resulted in immediate parties of interest, showings and serious potiential buyers. In the fourth month, the Team secured a Letter of Intent with earnest money. After negoiating for a month, the transaction fell through. With only one month left I felt there was no chance of selling the business. When it got down to two and one-half weeks before my deadline, clients of the business were notified of the business closing. The Team didn't give up! Through their marketing channels another interested party came forward. With lots of work, creativity and planning Team Lorenz worked with me, the interested party, attorneys and financial instutions and we got a contract in place. On my deadline date we closed the deal, NOT THE BUSINESS. I have done Real Estate transactions in the past with other realtors but none of them have been as professional, driven, honest and productive as Team Lorenz. I recommend Team Lorenz for Real Estate transactions and look forward to working with them again in the future. KM
Team Lorenz at The Wells Group is 5 Stars! My husband and I have bought and sold real estate for many years in other parts of the counhtry, but never encountered a group of real estate professionals as knowledgable and service-oriented as Team Lorenz. We moved from California to Durango knowing very little about the real estate market here. Our agent, Lisa Govreau, and the team leader, Rick Lorenz, educated us so that we understood the real estate scene in Durango, and they found the perfect house for us at the price we wanted to pay. And throughout the process everyone associated with Team Lorenz was not only courteous, but friendly, and not only professional but creative and resourceful. Their expertise is truly impressive. Lisa Govreau made the transaction easy - and even fun - for us. For both buyers and sellers, I recommend Team Lorenz without reservation! PH
