Meet our Team:

Elena Waldrip:  Administrative Assistant

Elena has a background in property management, and has recently moved here from Louisiana.  She is a team player, and enjoy's spending time with family, friends, and her dog Luna.


Ashley Crabb, Administrative Assistant

Ashley has been working in various trades surrounding housing since before getting her BA in Interior Design at CSU Chico in 2002.  A love of house and home is what started her down the path towards creating beautiful spaces for people.  That led her to designing custom homes in El Dorado Hills,  working side by side with builders and architects to create the home of the client’s dreams!  This eventually led to furniture sales, which led to flooring sales, where she was top producer in her market, selling over 1 million dollars that year. 


Danny Tarantino, Lead Buyer's Agent

Danny Tarantino has been with Lori and Bruce for nearly 4 years working as their Assistant.  He has previous experience with Keller Williams Realty in Nevada and is a licensed agent.  He has experience with bank owned properties, negotiating short sales, marketing listings, and working with buyers.  He is truly a huge asset to Lori and Bruce's team.

Nikki Chapman

Nikki was born and raised in Chico, California but has also also lived in Redding,
Sacramento and now Elk Grove. Living throughout Northern California has afforded her

the opportunity to see many wonderful cities but ultimately settle in her favorite place of
all- the Sacramento area. Nikki attended CSU Sacramento where she earned a B.A. in
Communication Studies and a Master of Arts degree in Cross-Cultural Education.
Therefore, bringing extensive knowledge of the area and the Real Estate market, Nikki
offers her clients an outstanding level of service. Honesty and integrity are two
characteristics that have helped her build a business of repeat clients and referrals. She
specializes in helping people make a local move selling their current home and
purchasing another, but loves working with first time buyers as well! While the process
can be stressful, Nikki focuses on making the transition as smooth and stress free as
possible by getting to know her clients and meeting their individual needs.
When Nikki is not busy selling Real Estate, she enjoys spending time with her husband,
3 children.
