Lori Elam

Lori Elam


Born and raised in a small town in Ohio, Lori’s parents taught her to “work hard and no matter what, always do what’s right.” That lesson is one she has lived by and it has proven to be the basis for success and happiness in her life, both personally and professionally. Residing in the Austin area for over 24 years and being a licensed Realtor since 2006, Lori has become an expert on new home communities, established neighborhoods, school district ratings and the diverse cultural vibes of the entire metro area.

Business Approach
Lori’s professional mission is to ensure her client’s real estate experience is successful and stress-free – even if in a tough market. Right away, Lori wants her clients to know they have a trusted partner who listens to their needs and puts their goals first! She always brings an honest, energetic and enjoyable approach to every transaction and advises her buyers, sellers and investors every step of the way. Lori doesn’t see her job as just selling someone a house; she, more importantly, sees it as helping people make wise investment decisions. As a liaison to lenders, home inspectors, appraisers, title companies, and contractors, she takes the guesswork out of the largest financial investment most people will ever make.

Education and Background
Lori has a degree in Advertising and Journalism from Ohio University. After spending several years at GSD&M advertising agency, she turned to real estate. Her education and background paired with Realty Austin’s online technology give Lori a clear advantage when marketing her client’s homes so they sell quickly and for the most money. Her attention to detail, organization and thorough communication are just some of the qualities her clients value.

Giving back to her community provides essential balance in Lori’s life. She supports and participates in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Texas Humane Heroes Pet Adoption Center and Habitat for Humanity.

Lori’s husband, Chris Easter, is also a licensed realtor at Realty Austin. Between them, they have three children; one in college and two in high school. Lori spends some of her spare time volunteering at Cedar Park High School, cheering on the football team Friday nights or just relaxing at home. She also enjoys hiking with her dogs, biking and soaking in all that Austin has to offer!

We have been working with Lori Elam now for over 12 years! She has stuck by our side and ALWAYS makes herself available for any house viewing that we are interested in. Trust me; we found many over the years! She was never pushy or rushed, and she made it clear to my husband and I that it was “our home” and it will take as long as it takes to find the right one for us. We are a perfect example of this!! We finally found the home we’ve been searching for, and Lori made it all happen for us! It was very quick, easy and overall great experience! We will miss all the home viewings with her, but our time is done, and it’s time for other future clients to scoop her up! You won’t regret it. Big city and small-town hospitality with Lori, guaranteed!

There are not enough great things I can say about Lori Elam. We met her in 2007 when we were moving to the Austin area from Charlotte. Fast forward to 2019, I reached out to her and found out she was at Realty Austin. She jumped straight in and diligently found neighborhoods for us to visit months ahead of us moving. The Austin market is crazy, so with us being in Houston and coming down on the weekends, some of our likes were pending by the time we arrived. This made Lori have to work harder in mapping our days out. We never missed a beat with Lori orchestrating the viewings. Not to mention, she did this while we had an 11yr, 9yr and 20 months old as a supporting cast. She was our go-to with any questions with lenders, sellers, and she even recommended a Realtor in our area to list our house. There are not enough great things I can say about Lori.

Lori was amazing to work with! I was under a time crunch to find a new place, and even though we were early in the season, she hustled and found inventory. We must have seen at least six houses each trip out, and we went out multiple times over several weekends. It may have been overwhelming, but Lori was very observant on what I liked and didn't. She refined the searches and started suggesting better and better houses to see. After the offer was accepted, she continued to be very much on top of things with my mortgage broker, seller's agent, and title office who were all under pressure to close quickly. It was quite a stressful situation for me, but I appreciated Lori's insight, friendly demeanor, and diligence in getting the perfect home for my kids and me.

Lori Elam is a top notch Realtor who genuinely cares about her clients and goes above and beyond, answering calls, responding to emails throughout the night, and always making sure our family felt valued and appreciated. Her professionalism and determination are above and beyond what we could ever have asked for. Lori found the perfect home for our family, and we would highly recommend her to anyone. She is amazing!

I've worked with Lori Elam for several years now. She is by far the best experience I have ever had with a Realtor. She is honest, patient and trustworthy. I never doubted any of her recommendations. She went above and beyond and did not let any detail fall through the cracks. As long as Lori is a Realtor, she will be our partner of choice for any real estate investments or transactions.

I've been investing in the real estate industry for 47 years. Lori Elam is the ultimate professional and a pleasure to work with! Quite frankly, she's the only Realtor I use in the greater Austin area. I highly recommend Lori and Realty Austin.

Lori is a "diamond in the rough" in the realty world. She is not only hardworking and reliable, but very honest and fair. Her easy going nature made the tedious real estate purchase and selling process much easier.

Noel and Tracey Garcia

It’s a pleasure working with Lori. She is a no BS agent. She says it the way it is. You can count on her to work for you, not for her commission. I have over 30 years of experience buying and selling real estate property and have not gone back to the same agent twice, except for Lori. I have done many transactions with her and have been more than pleased.

Lori was a lot of fun to work with. She was helpful and responsive to our concerns in handling both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one. She provided us with extensive and up to date market analyses on both sides and offered strategies to accentuate the many positive attributes of our home. As a result, we were under contract in less than a week. She worked diligently to find us the perfect home in an incredibly tight real estate market and remained positive throughout. We highly recommend Lori to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Christine Broughal and Greg Primm

We want to express our gratitude to Lori, for all of the extra effort she went through to answer questions, pull together information and make sure we were taken care of. Our best ever experience with a Realtor.
