Real Estate Agent with Lori Dean Realty

Evening Everyone,

Just wanted to introduce and share a little information about myself. I have been married for 22 years this Valentine's Day and my husband Philip and I have 2 children, ages 18 and 16, that wechose to homeschool since 2nd grade. It was a wonderful adventure for all of us. However, we wonder..."where did the years go?"   We are starting to feel the pains of becoming empty nesters, but  have been told to embrace the moment because before we know it... we'll be Grandparents! !

I love to volunteer in my community; (so much so, my kids love to tease me bout writing a book they would dubb "Growing up with a Mom who couldn't say NO! lol) I am a Kiwanis, belong to our 2 Chamber of Commerces, and partake in all of the exciting events that our quaint little hometown has to offer.  Doing so is not only fun, but a great way to network and meet new clients and ultimately make new friends.

My nickname is "little Dean" and it was given to me because I am 4'8" tall (short...), lol,  but my husband likes to tell me that what I am lacking in height, I definitely make up for in spunk.!!

I really enjoy the Real Estate business mostly because I like to have fun and meet new people and truly enjoy playing  matchmaker, in this case, helping others find just the right home or lot for them. (although I have been known to play cupid from time to time as well) When listing a property ,  I become emotionally attached to it as if it were my own home I was trying to sell, and thus put all of my heart and soul into marketing and showing it.

Well, I look forward to hearing from you, and if I can answer any questions you may have, please feel free to ask away. I will do my best to assist you.
