Lora always responds quickly with positive and helpful answers. She handled the sale and purchase of our homes in the most professional manner. Her expertise and experience guided us through a stressful time. She's the best realtor we have ever dealt with.

Leona Bloom | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

I followed "almost" all of Lora's suggestions to make my house the most marketable one in the neighborhood. As a result, my house sold quickly after being put on the market. Lora even attending closing for me so that I would not have to drive all the way back to NC from Florida! She kept me in the "Loop" through the whole process so all of our paper-work was done in an efficient and timely manner. It was a totally wonderful experience and Lora is a joy to work with. If you have a home you want to sell in the north Raleigh area, I would suggest listing with her.

Diane Skyes | Home Seller

Lora was very helpful and professional. Our home sold in 7 days! Her guidance from listing to closing was greatly appreciated. She worked through several delays caused by the buyer's financial institution. Thanks, Lora.

Cheryl Pettyjohn | Home Seller
testimonial quote

Lora is knowledgeable, efficient and a consummate professional. She goes above and beyond expectations. She cares, she loves what she does, and it shows. Lora has represented my family in three separate real estate transactions, and I wouldn't hesitate to refer her to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home

Kelly Shum-Drake | Home Seller
testimonial quote

Lora was knowledgeable about the state of the market, and was very helpful with house staging for sale, with a great eye for what makes a place look nice. The final negotiated sales price for our home was what we wanted.

Tracy Hughes | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lora is an expert in the RDU Triangle real estate market. At every point during the process of selling our home we had full confidence she was guiding us toward an optimal sale! She operates with integrity and honesty to the delight of her customers! We highly recommend Lora to anyone looking for the best person to represent their purchase or sale of a home! She gets an A++ from us!

Paula and Craig Gallaher | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lora is a highly trained and knowledgeable agent that looked after us from day one to post closing and she is still taking care of us after the sale. She is excellent at staging our home and this was one of the reasons we got more than asking price. She knows the area very well and knows other agents, and what kind of issues you could run into with them and their clients. She deftly navigated the problems that arose on both ends of our sale and purchase of our new home. I can't say enough about the high level of professionalism and grace she handles her day to day job. I first met Lora in 2003 when our house was on the market for 18 months with a previous agent. Lora came in and told us what to do. We took it off the market for 30 days, busted out butts and got the house ready. 9 days later, we sold it. This time it only took her 4 days to get a +100% asking price offer. Lora is the best. Bar none.

Jimmy and Tara Reske | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lora was very effective in selling our house quickly and at a good price. Her support and guidance throughout the process, particularly in staging, price-setting and negotiations, are a direct result of her considerable experience and expertise in the real estate market. She used those same skills to our advantage when we bought another house. Lora also helped us to find a rental property "between houses". We highly recommend her.

Greg and Lorayne Locke | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lora Fillingim-Brown is the best! Her knowledge, patience, counsel, guidance and understanding through the entire process of downsizing, selling my home and moving to a retirement community were outstanding. I highly recommend Lora to anyone going through this emotional time. Way to go Lora! Great

Patricia Baker | Home Seller
testimonial quote

Lora has helped our extended family with a few purchase in the past five years, and she has been fantastic every time. She is very knowledgeable on local markets as well as general real estate expertise, very responsive and has helped us with favorable negotiations each time. In our latest purchase she used a "paperless" system which allowed us to electronically sign documents (including offers) immediately, which really sped-up the entire process. We have recommended Lora to anyone needing a realtor in the past, and will definitely continue to do so!

Melissa and Brian Meyer | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lora was awesome. She was fast on responses and accommodating to our schedule when looking for houses. She helped us every step along the way, and was knowledgeable on all aspects including how the home was constructed and potential problems that could arise. She was an expert and tough negotiator, I would always want her on my side. I would always, have recommend Lora to anyone buying or selling a house, went above and beyond a typical real estate agent. She’s just the best, use her and you won’t be disappointed, probably save money since she will get you the best deal and not just buy or sell your house to get the commission. She’s really on your side. Go Lora :)

Lora was fabulous! Her advice and presence from preparing our home to list to closing the sale was impeccable. She helped us make our home look fresh and spacious. She ensured that our house sold quickly at the best possible price. We highly recommend her talents.

Sherry Rigouard | Home Seller
testimonial quote

My husband and I have worked with Lora on a few purchases and sales throughout the years. She is very knowledgeable in the market and we really valued her input during the process of selling our home. We also relied on her expertise when we made competitive offers to purchase. Lora is very professional and was always responsive. We are very happy with all of the transactions that she helped us with.

Hana Franco | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lora is an outstanding Agent. We have known her for over 10 years. She's not only a Real Estate Agent but also a Home Stagier which is the key to selling a home faster. She sold our first home in 2 weeks and our 2nd home in less than 2 weeks. She's honest and does her research on all the housing specs in the area before she even meets with her clients. She gives you a realistic asking price for your home before you place your house on the market. If you're looking for an agent that's knowledgeable and an agent to sell your house quick then she is the one to select. I highly recommend Lora!!

Amy Terrell | Home Seller & Home Buyer

Lora made our home selling as effortless as humanly possible! I will definitely be using her for home staging & home selling again in the future! She has experience & passion for her work which shows in every transaction. I am grateful Coldwell Banker found her to work with me. Thanks, Lora, for all the hand holding throughout the process.

Marcy M. | Home Seller
testimonial quote

Lora was exceptional. Our house had been on the market for 6 months when she took over as our Realtor. She came in and "decorated" our home (it was vacant), had us replace the carpet, and actually raised the selling price! She had an offer on the home within 10 days! It was incredible.

Kim & Tres | Home Seller
testimonial quote

I'd like to express my thanks for your services during the selling and buying of my homes. I appreciate your integrity and honesty as well as the professional handling of all the issues. If I hear of anyone in need of a good agent, I'll be sure to give them your name, Lora!

Doug Wilson | Home Seller & Home Buyer

Thank you Lora! Wow, that was simple and painless. We did what you asked and you did what we asked which was to be available to answer our questions and concerns. We sailed right through the home selling process. 7 days on the market and we had a SOLID offer on our house. We couldn't have asked for more from you. Lora, you are a caring and knowledgeable professional. Thank you.

Lora did an excellent job in advising us on how to get our home ready to sell. She was with us every step of the way! She was dedicated to helping us find our new home and did a great job advocating for us during the negotiating for both sale & purchase.

Ashley & Markus Roberson | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lora has been an excellent Realtor. We recommend her without reservation. We were fortunate to have Lora's real estate expertise on several separate deals--one to sell our home and one to sell and purchase another home, She is very adept, thorough and professional. Lora works very hard....always getting the job done! She helped us with developing a list of "must do's" in order to sell our current home and get our price as quickly as possible. An added bonus is that she has additional talent and skills in home staging. She helped to make the home look appealing and attractive to potential buyers. We sold the home within a week! She also went above and beyond to find us our current home since there were none available!

Katy Weaver | Home Seller

Lora Fillingim-Brown is a terrific real estate agent! Lora always greets her client(s) with a warm smile and a exciting amount of knowledge. I have asked her to sell homes for me on 2 different occasions. She sold both houses quickly for me - one in 2001 and the other in 2012. She was very effective and efficient in the advertising and selling of both homes. I have been able to recommend her to friends on numerous occasions. They too were very happy with her performance.

Lora has the knowledge & expertise necessary to get your home SOLD! She utilizes all available marketing tools because her goal is to sell your home quickly. Regardless of how busy she is, she returns calls quickly, answers questions patiently & always has a cheerful attitude.

Becky & Ray | Home Seller
testimonial quote

Working with Lora was a pleasure. She was friendly, and it was easy to share our desires and preferences with her. She had a keen eye for finding problems that were not easily detected by us in houses that we visited. She often had a solution or an alternative idea for the problem. If we found something undesirable, she immediately listened to us and did not try to persuade us differently. Lora is knowledgeable in all areas of real estate from ideas to improve property to giving names and businesses to help us with renovations. Lora exceeded our expectations. We even have her helping our daughter to find a home. She was by far the best real estate agent with whom we have ever worked!

Linda & Ken Brown | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lora has been very helpful and courteous. Her professional advice in selecting the color combinations for our new home were a blessing. She is a true professional and does exceptional follow up!

Klaus & Sigrid | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

This was our first home purchase & it couldn't have gone more smoothly. Lora was able to guide us through the entire home buying process with ease. She easily answered our questions & helped give us the confidence we needed in purchasing the best home for our needs.

Leigh & Alex | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

We are very thankful to Lora. We had 2 buyers with a previous realtor who were able to close on our home. Lora understood the problem and found lenders that would offer loans which netted us our next and final buyer. Also, after being on the market for half a year with another realtor her staging skills & care made potential buyers recognize our home as being loved. Being clear across the country in Alaska, we hoped for a realtor like Lora to care for what we could not.

Karmer & Tim | Home Seller
testimonial quote

We loved working with Lora! She made our move and transition smooth! We appreciated her honesty and integrity. Lora's tip's for getting our home "show" ready were right on target!
