I really enjoyed working with Lori! She went beyond my expectations, promptly responded to my emails, and kept me on the loop. She is very friendly and easy to work with. She really helped me a lot with this transaction. I recommend her to my family and friends, and I know she will take care of them the same way she took care of me. Lori was very patient with me and responded to every question I had. Thank you, Lori! I really appreciate everything you did for us to get the property I really wanted!

Lori Goto helped me buy a house in 2011 and then helped me to sell it late last year when I needed to make a move for work. Lori is an awesome agent! She kept in contact frequently, gave me great feedback from showings, and worked with me to get the price I was hoping for. I highly recommend her.

Lori Goto was absolutely wonderful. This was our first out of state move/buy, which meant that we didn't know the area where we wanted to relocate to. We had "a lot" of questions, but Lori was very patient with us. Not only did she answer our questions, but she also gave us her view/insight as well. Lori always made herself available to us, and we appreciated that; in turn, it made us feel comfortable working with her. 

Considering that we were out of state, we were not able to see all of the houses in person, so Lori took the initiative of doing her own walkthrough and video recorded what the houses looked like inside and out, so we could get a good visual of a few homes that we were interested in that we were not able to see in person. 

The buying experience met exactly what we were looking for. Lori had properties lined up based on our criteria and helped us make informed decisions. We truly felt like Lori was going the extra mile for us. I plan on working with her on our next house that we would like to buy. We are truly grateful that she had helped us buy our new home!

Lori was absolutely amazing through this whole process. She was super patient with us as we switched neighborhoods and price points mid-search and uber-efficient lining things up before we even had a chance to ask for them. Lori was always willing to hop on a call to talk through any questions or concerns we had and very helpful with tips, recommendations, and relevant market data. And all around a pleasure to work with!

Lori was great throughout the sale of my 1st home and purchase of my 2nd home years later. She made the process run smooth, stress-free and continues to be available. Lori is very responsive no matter what time, day or night. She is definitely my Realtor for life.

Lori Goto was my Realtor for buying a home in 2011, and again for selling that house just this month. Lori was awesome to work with both times, very patient with all my questions and concerns while having an answer for me each time to set my mind at rest. I would definitely recommend her to any buyers or sellers!

Lori Goto is amazing, and she was always there to answer questions and check on things for us. Lori has been a friend of ours for many years, and we think the world of her and she was ready and willing to jump in and help get us in a home. We will be forever grateful to her!

I'm a first-time homeowner, and like many people I knew nothing or even where to start, a friend of mine recommended Lori with Realty Austin and am glad I went with her. She was very informative and explained the steps of buying a house, it sounded complicated, but then it's expected as you're making a big purchase. However, Lori was helpful at every step and kept following up and in good communication all the time even when we look at several houses, and I almost gave up finding something that I liked she kept looking and finally found the right home and am happy with it. I would recommend them anytime as I had a great experience with them and specially with Lori.

We had a great experience with Lori Goto at Realty Austin! We started working with her about two years before we could finally "make the move" to Lakeway. Lori was always there for us. She was knowledgeable, diligent, patient, experienced and responsive to any and all questions. We searched in excess of 45 homes. Lori's gentle nature and sense of humor were delightful to work with! I would highly recommend Lori and the Realty Austin team!

Lori made selling our current home and buying our dream home not only a reality but a smooth and easy process! The marketing she did for selling our home was awesome. We followed the steps she provided for getting top dollar for our house and got four offers in 11 days-one for asking price and one over asking price! If you should encounter any hiccups in selling your home, Lori is the perfect person to have to work for you. She will make sure everything is resolved with minimal stress to you. We did everything we could to be fair and compromise, but we dealt with some flaky buyers. We had an offer cancel with one hour left on the option period due to the buyer's unreasonable demands; however, within two days, Lori had two more offers for us-the; best offers we received! Everyone who was involved in the sales process; from Lori to her assistant to the lender-was extremely responsive and helpful in any way that they could be. Lori was excellent at negotiating with the buyer's agents and making sure the timing worked out so that we could close on both the sale of our current home and a new home on the same day. On the buying side, Lori worked tirelessly to find us our perfect dream home and negotiate with the seller's agent to get us the house we fell in love with for a great price. We couldn't be happier with how smoothly everything went. We highly recommend Lori to anyone looking to buy or sell or a home-or both!

Lori Goto was our Realtor, and we had an awesome time working with her besides being our friend and from Hawaii. She found us a model home with a home builder at the Heritage at Vizcaya, and we fell in love with it and had Taylor Morrison build it for us. Lori always check up on us to see how the building was progressing. She is very professional and caring. We would recommend Lori to anyone looking for a Realtor. Awesome job Lori.

Betty Young Harris

Lori Goto with Realty Austin is the best agent I have ever worked with. She knows the market very well. I have listed and purchased several homes over the years. Lori is simply a go-getter and makes time for me whenever I need her or have questions about the process. I highly recommend Lori!

Brian Bowling

Lori provided awesome service throughout the sale of my home. She went above and beyond the call of duty to help me with things and was always available to answer my questions and explain paperwork. Lori’s pleasant personality helped me through stressful times. She even sent information for possible homes for me in San Antonio! She and her husband offered to help me pack some things, found boxes, and brought them to my house. Lori exhibited the utmost professionalism. She is an outstanding Realtor. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

My wife and I are extremely happy with the level of service and professionalism provided by Lori. We blindsided her with a last-minute listing, and she worked diligently, even on vacation, and had other people tending to our needs to get things ready. Without a doubt, I would recommend Lori to anyone moving to or from Austin.

Lori Goto provided exceptional guidance and support throughout the purchase of our house in Round Rock. Lori was a personal friend long before she became a real estate agent. Lori has previously helped both of our daughters purchase homes in Austin. We have bought only one house in the past, in Houston in 1977; we were aware that the house purchase process might have undergone changes over the past 40 years, but we did not know exactly how the process had changed. We quickly learned that the house purchase process had undergone enormous changes and realized that we needed a lot of help in navigating the process. Because of our relationship with Lori, we came to rely heavily on Lori to help us through the process, and she did not disappoint. Lori first helped to set up accounts at Realty Austin to search for houses that may be appropriate for us, based on certain parameters we provided; we received a lot of listings of prospective homes over the course of a couple of months. Lori arranged for a viewing of a house on our trip to Austin and provided lists of open houses on a couple of other weekends when we went to Austin. Then, when we decided on a house to try to buy, Lori provided a great deal of help and guidance on the purchase, starting from the offer all the way through the closing. Throughout the process, she was very responsive when we asked questions because of our unfamiliarity with the process. Without Lori, I don't know whether we could have completed the purchase; it undoubtedly would have been enormously more difficult. Even though I realize that we may have benefited from our special relationship with Lori, I believe that she would provide exemplary service to anyone, and I would not hesitate to recommend Lori to others. As a matter of fact, my wife has.

Lori Goto is a very good Realtor! Lori is very knowledgeable in her craft, always greets us with the biggest smile, always on the ball, very professional, and very honest. She goes out of her way to find the answers we're looking for. We want to thank her for all her hard work for helping us find our new home.

Lori Goto was our realtor and she was amazing! It was our first house buying experience and she honestly walked us through everything and worked with us until we chose the perfect house. We were a little nervous that she wouldn't want to work with us after we lowered our price range, but she was completely understanding and had more houses ready to show us within a day. Jessica and I couldn't thank her enough for how well she treated us and actually cared about our home buying experience. She worked directly with the loan officers, title companies, and everyone else and made sure that everything we signed was legit. Overall great experience!!

Bryan Swindler, Google Review

Lori was fantastic. She went above and beyond and made the home search an easy process. We currently live in Chicago, so we presented some extra work for Lori. She was always responsive and helpful. For example, I reached out to her to solicit help at 10:00 pm the night before I was scheduled for a flight to look at some homes. She called me and was able to show me around in less than 12-hour notice.

We didn't find anything in person, but a few weeks later, we found some houses online in Buda. We asked Lori if she would look at them for us and "FaceTime" with us for a virtual tour. Again, she answered our request on a moments notice, driving all the way to Buda in bad weather to show us houses before they were bought up. No matter how big the request, or last second scheduled flights - Lori was there and made it work.

She helped us navigate the highly competitive market, and made sure things got done when they needed. We will refer her to all our friends! Prompt, efficient, professional, courteous, friendly.

Lori Goto was highly recommended by a coworker, and she didn't disappoint! We were immediately contacted by Lori, and she got our budget, what kind of home we were searching for, and we were emailed a good list of homes to go through. We picked some out, and that weekend went to go look. She was completely honest about what she thought, what she didn't like (if it was overpriced, not good quality, etc.) and helped us decide. She picked one out that wasn't on our list, and as soon as we walked in, we knew it was the one. We made an offer, and Lori recommended we write a letter. We just closed on June 20, and Lori had a super sweet gift for us. She seriously knows what she's doing, she's amazing. If we decide to buy again, we know who we're going to!

We had a wonderful experience with Lori Goto, who was our agent on both the selling and buying side. Lori's many years of experience showed in her ability to answer all of our questions fully (important to us, because this is the first house we've sold in the state of Texas, and real estate transactions are a bit different in Minnesota, where we're from). She has exceptional attention to detail and knowledge of things that we have had no experience with, like the septic system that came with our new house. She told us what to ask about it, and other things that I'm sure we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. On top of all of her experience and knowledge, she is a caring person. I had to remind myself that we weren't her only clients, because she gave us so much of her time and attention. We have already recommended her to friends who are getting ready to sell, and would definitely recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house here in Austin.

We have been working with Lori Goto of Realty Austin for years and cannot recommend her more highly. She helped sell my condo several years ago and was successful in selling ours before any of the other ones that were listed at the time in that community. More recently she helped us find our first investment property, which we just closed on this week. In both cases Lori was professional, promptly answered questions by phone and email, and was a pleasure to work with. I will be using Lori in all future real estate transactions!.

Lori Goto was wonderful! Friendly, helpful, everything we'd want in an agent and more. We felt like she was on our side solidly through the whole thing, taking care of stuff we needed that was unusual because of our overseas move. She kept us informed and was really there for us. We'd absolutely recommend her to anyone in the area.

Lori was wonderful to work with. She was extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process. She was able to get our first house sold quickly and helped us get to closing on our next house. I will definitely recommend her and would like to work with Lori again in the future. Many thanks to Lori and the staff at Realty Austin!

If I were going to make a recommendation to anyone for an experienced, no nonsense realtor, it would be Lori Goto. She helped make my buying process simpler and was always there for me when I needed her to step in on anything. To me, she was knowledgeable, friendly, and showed the true "Aloha" spirit. I could not have done this without her.

Christian Ching

August 1 2015

I just sold my house with Lori Goto as my realtor and she was amazing. I live in another state and my house was a rental before that was damaged. Lori handled much of getting the house ready and dealing with contractors since I was out of state. She helped me decide what was worth the cost of repair and what wasn't. She really was my eyes and I trusted her opinion. When I purchased my house years ago, I used a different company and never had the same safe feeling like I was in the right hands, as I did working with Lori. I hope everyone is lucky enough to have the support of a realtor like I did especially when it comes to these big decisions. Thanks Lori and Realty Austin.

We recently used Lori Goto from Realty Austin to sell and purchase houses. Lori rocks! She is very knowledgeable about the Austin market, and is great at making the process go as smooth as possible. She is very patient with her clients, and is always reachable when you need something or have a question. We would definitely use her again.

Brian B., Yelp Review

We were moving our family from CA to TX. My sister-in-law recommended Lori and I’m so thankful she did! My husband was house hunting in Austin, while I was house selling in CA. Very hard to let go and trust that he and Lori would find something I could be happy with. Lori was very patient, knowledgeable, and responsive. I can’t say enough about how easy she made this whole process. She was on top of everything – from the offer all the way through the closing. Anytime I had issues or needed to discuss, she was right there making sure I was comfortable with it all despite being a thousand miles away. Closing was a rush due to our situation and she pushed everything through to make sure we could meet our deadlines and get the house when needed. We really appreciate her taking the stress out of this side of the move. I will definitely refer her to anyone in the market.

Susan Yoder

June 1 2015

As expected, our experience working with Lori was terrific. This was the second time she has helped us, the first being a purchase in 2013, and this most recent one being both a sale and another purchase. It is quite an understatement to say that my husband and I were again so pleased and fortunate to have worked with Lori this time around. She is simply the best!

Not only is Lori Goto extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, honest, and level headed, but she also has one of the greatest all time laughs which is important when making such an important decision! Her attention to detail and customer service is second to none. She is extremely patient and despite being highly sought after, she always stays in the present when she is working with you. Many thanks to her and her staff for their professionalism and on point timeliness with my home purchase!

Lori just help us find our first house in Austin. She is knowledgeable at the Austin area real-estate market. And she is very patient to her clients. This is very helpful to the first time buyers like us. We highly recommend Lori for you next home purchase.

I could not recommend my agent Lori Goto enough. I have worked with many different agents and many have strengths but Lori has the entire package and she excelled in every facet of a home purchase, and then a home sale.

Lori Goto is awesome! In the past few years, she's helped us buy two houses and sell one. She always treats us like we're very important and answers questions and issues very quickly. Lori went way above and beyond for us. She's got a great sense of humor and even helped babysit the kids while we dealt with paperwork and walked through homes. We will highly recommend her to anyone in the area. She's definitely the best!

Brandon R., Yelp Review

Lori was absolutely wonderful to work with. When I first started looking at homes I was in contact with a few different realtors and Lori quickly stood out from the pack. At our first meeting she provided me with tons of valuable info about the Austin housing market, what to expect as a first time buyer, and how the home-buying process works. I definitely would have been lost without her! She was prompt, fun to work with, and always had my best interests in mind. I give her an A+, 5 stars, 2 thumbs up, every other superlative imaginable. Thanks Lori!!!

My 21 year old son purchased his first home with the help of Lori Goto and we could not have been happier! What an awesome realtor! As the mom, I went along to make sure he got what he was looking for and had someone to help him during the home buying process but I was totally not needed! Not only did Lori listen to everything he was looking for and only show homes in that criteria but she helped him every step of the way. Buying your first home can be stressful but she made it seem tooooooo easy (now he wants to know why we told him it would be so stressful).

Lori is great and was much help to us. From showing us houses, helping us move into our current home, and keeping us informed about what paperwork needed to be turned in. Lori was fantastic about everything and we are happy in our new home. If we have friends or relatives that are looking to move or buy a new home, we know whom to send them to. We appreciate everything Lori did for us and can never tell her thank you enough.

I closed on my new home two weeks ago after a whirlwind three-week contract-to-close.  I continue to be impressed by and grateful to my Realtor, Lori Goto, for all she does for me as a client.  This is the fifth transaction on which I have worked with Lori so the repeat business alone should speak volumes.    Lori helped me through a house sale in South Austin during boom times, a short sale in Round Rock during lean times and now another purchase in Round Rock when the real estate market is ultra-competitive.  She consistently guides me through bids, offers, home staging, Option Period inspections and re-negotiations, and ultimately to successful and efficient Closings.    When a home goes on the market and I want to be there within hours to get a jump on the bidding process, Lori meets me there or makes herself available to the Realtor at the Open House.  When I want to put in a competitive bid, Lori submits a viable offer on my behalf by the required deadline. When I want to push on a repair item after having an home inspection, Lori gets to the selling Realtor quickly and effectively.  She also gives fabulous closing gifts for which my son and I are very appreciative.  :-)    I feel like I am in very good hands when I have my "Go-to" Lori by my side.  I recommend her highly and am available for further glowing reviews.

I can not speak highly enough of Lori Goto. We first used her when we moved to Austin 3 years ago and it was a no brainer to use her again when it came time to relocate to Florida! She kept us informed and handled every little detail, we literally trusted her so much we signed where she said sign and didn't have to think about anything other than how much money we wanted to make from our home!!! She is amazing and we LOVE her!!!

Lauren Harris

Lori Goto was fantastic to work with. In a market like this, you need a good Realtor on your side. She has been flexible, professional, knowledgeable and communicative. I would not have ended up in such a wonderful home without Lori's help.

She truly cares about her clients and I would/will recommend her to anyone looking to buy in Austin. Thank you Lori and Realty Austin!

Ryan Turner, Citysearch Review

Lori Goto did an outstanding job! She helped me deal with a very challenging situation with the seller and a demanding timeline for us to close and him to close on this new property. We worked well together and she was there with me every step of the way. I could not have picked a better agent and Realty Austin should be very proud to call her their agent, she stands above a lot of Realtors in Austin.

We enjoyed working with Lori very much. She is very helpful and readily available. Lori kept us updated and informed in a very timely fashion. We are happy to know her and to have her as our Realtor.


August 1 2013

We were extremely pleased to have worked with Lori Goto to find our new home in Barton Creek Lakeside. We originally visited the Austin area in November 2012 and met both Lori and one of your competitors to determine whom we would work with. Lori was the easy winner on her own merits, and our choice was easy.

Lori found us a home in Spicewood I really liked, but my wife did not. I convinced my wife to take a second look a few days later and Lori unhesitatingly agreed to make the trip out there again. Still my wife did not like the house, but she did like the location, so Lori developed a working relationship with a local agent so that he would "keep an eye out" for what we were looking for. Sure enough one of the property owners contacted that agent and asked if he knew anyone who might be interested in their property. He called Lori and she drove out to Barton Creek Lakeside once again, filmed the property inside and out and emailed all the film to us. We were extremely interested -- only to have the owners decide 48 hours later that they were not going to sell.

Once we moved here in June, we met Lori and drove directly to Spicewood where yet a third property had come available which she had kept tabs on because she thought it fit our profile. It certainly did, and by the end of the day we made a successful offer and are now happily living in our new home on Masters Parkway in Barton Creek Lakeside.

Lori was a joy to work with. Always pleasant and funny; a great listener.

Would we recommend her? Already have! While vacationing earlier this year in Panama (and before actually buying property) we met a local whose son attends UT and he wanted to have a place to use while he visited his son. We gave him Lori's contact information. No idea if he ever followed through, but Lori will have our full support if anyone ever asks us again for a recommendation on an agent.

Jack Moran & Vannette Poole

Lori Goto has been a second mother to us on our first home purchase. Lori was recommended to us through word of mouth from another first time home buyer; and as with most personal referrals - it checked out. She has been extremely personable, knowledgeable, patient, and helpful in any way imaginable through the entire home purchasing experience. I highly recommend using Lori as your realtor for the Austin area


I was very pleased to work with Lori Goto again. She represented me in the past on another property. She is very responsive, knowledgeable, professional, and keeps her commitments. I always recommend her to my business associates and will most definitely call her again in the future.

Jacqueline Bergen

Thanks so much for bringing the iPod that I won to my home. You are so sweet to offer the movies, and snacks, and then a drawing! Wow! We will enjoy having music on the go.

I wanted to make sure to tell you thank you! We feel lucky to have won!

Kelly Stacy

We just purchased our home in Austin with Lori Goto and Realty Austin. Lori was great from start-to-finish, meeting with us on very short notice multiple times, and looking at a large number of houses until we found the one we loved. She was even more valuable during the negotiating and closing process. Lori and her assistant Nicole made our home buying process a pleasure. Thanks Lori!

by Steven Finkelstein at Facebook

We had a bit of a unique situation with Lori considering we brought the buyer to her and the buyer decided not to use an agent. Lori was GREAT! She always got back to us with questions promptly and was very good at negotiating. I'm glad we used her since the buyer was a bit high maintenance at times - it was nice to have someone experienced to help! I was very impressed with Lori. If our particular deal fell through, we would have been happy to use her to "officially" put our house on the market.

Lynn Waldman

We have bought and sold many homes in our time and I have to say that Lori Goto's management of the people and processes involved in this transaction were nothing short of remarkable. Always kind and considerate, she was also hard-nosed in her negotiations with our buyers and their realtor. We would certainly recommend her to anyone in the market for a home, buying or selling.

Blair & Cherry Williamson

I finally decided to buy a house again 5 years after moving to Austin, and chose to use Lori Goto as my realtor based on a friend's recommendation. Let me just say that I'm very thankful for my friend. Lori was great in working through the process with me, patiently looking through houses with me as I was making up my mind and then keeping in touch through the long process of building and closing on a new house. If I ever decide to move again, Lori will be the first agent I try to contact!

by Tim R at Yelp

We would definitely recommend Lori Goto! She was excellent! After a lot of searching, we bought a beautiful home and are very happy in our first home purchase. She had quick and great communication with us throughout the process. She was always very friendly and professional. She was even really good with our kids. When we have any future dealings with realty, we will be giving Lori a call!

by Wolfgang at Google

Lori is a doll and very very sweet and thoughtful! With that said, there were several times where I felt she was possibly being to lacksed in negotiations with sellers various agents. I feel as though Lori would be a super top notched agent if she were to be more aggressive. Overall, my Girlfriend and I found Lori Goto to be a extremely delightful professional that you guys should hold on to at all costs. I will definitely refer Lori to others in the future!!

Randy and Laurie Stiewert

Lori did an excellent job. Very stressful time since selling and buying a homencondo as a single person.

Lori was great. She walked me through the selling of my house and buying a condo. Very stressful time for me but Lori answered all my questions and assisted me. I love my condo and would refer Lori as a real estate agent.

Trudy Jaloway

We cannot say enough about Lori Goto, one of the agents at Realty Austin. Lori was incredibly professional, efficient and, most importantly, helped us get the most money for our house. She is very knowledgeable and even when unusual situations came up, she found answers and solutions quickly.

We highly recommend working with Lori.


Whenever we needed Lori, she was a call or email away. Lori was always in contact with us, builder, and lender. I am going to refer to her if I have any friends or family are looking for a home.

Armando Martinez and Danielle Salas

We were very satisfied with Lori. Sold the house quickly. Covered cost of stager, we think. Always prompt and did what she promised. Good listener.

Fran and Ted Miller

Lori is outstanding, I was able to reach her on the phone or if I left a message she returned my call in very little time, I felt a real close friendship type of connection with her. I will and have recommended Lori to other people looking for a good realtor. Lori is funny, easy to talk to, knows her stuff, when my husband likes the realtor-than I know the realtor is good. With Lori you can't improve on excellence-she's a keeper!!!!

Very attentive, I felt like she was very interested in me and not another number or commission on her belt. She suggested to "stage" my house for better re-sale and appearance which basically my husband and I refused, but Lori explained it in such a way and we did it and were very proud of ourselves as you can see by our virtural tour. Again I can't say enough great things about Lori.

Lauri and Michael Burke

We could not be happier with Lori Goto in helping us sell our home. From the very beginning she was very friendly, out-going and professional. She was always very prompt in returning all our calls and continually kept us updated with every aspect of the selling process. The quality she applied to the listing and advertising of our home far surpassed those of our selling competition. Lori knows the current trends of what buyer’s are looking for and what it takes to sell a house quickly. After giving us great advice on staging our home she went above and beyond and helped us move our furniture. This was our first-time selling a home and Lori’s hard work and calm demeanor really helped take the stress out of the whole process. We would highly recommend Lori as a selling agent!

Alex and Michelle Seller in Western Oaks neighborhood

Lori Goto was exceptional! We were and are very pleased with the outcome of Lori's efforts in selling our home. She is very professional and caring. Given our situation as remote sellers, Lori was very generous, gave us good advice and much needed support in getting our house ready for selling. My husband and I highly recommend Lori. Thanks Lori!

Harpreet and Yadvender Kang

Lori was great! She was very patient with us and helpful. Our seller was somewhat "difficult" at times, and Lori always handled any upcoming situations with our seller well for us.

R. Nakasato

Lori was great to work with. She really listened to what we wanted and then delivered. She was extremely knowledgeable about the home buying process and all other steps along the way. As a first time homebuyer I couldn't have asked for a better realtor.

Ashley Kegley and Sean Whitehead

Lori did a great job, even though it took a long time for me to close on the property.

Ruben Melendez

Lori was amazing! It took us 4 other agents before I met Lori to find someone who was a great fit for us. I told her our situation of needing a home as soon as possible, that we had a budget, and that I was determined to live west of Mopac, which other agents were showing me homes east. She not only found us a home within a week of meeting her, but she went above and beyond and picked me up when my car was being serviced and I live 30 minutes away from her. She made the whole process seem effortless and really made buying our first home, an outstanding experience. She followed up with us after buying the home and I know Lori will be my agent for as long as I live...and she lives...in Austin.

Rafal Danelczyk and Dyanna Bruno

Lori showed us a variety of properties over a long period of time to help us find the perfect home for our retirement. We can't say enough about the outstanding job she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her!

Sara and Stan Leachman

Since this was our first home buying experience, Lori made every part or the process very smooth and easy. She was always available to help and answer questions (we had a lot to ask). Lori was not pushy at all, which I feel is one of her best qualities. She helped to point out things that we would have missed on our own. She is very easy to talk to, and I really feel that she was there to help us find the right house for us, not just sell us one.

Steven Fiero and Monica Turner

Lori not only helped us find our dream home and put up with all our pickiness, but she also helped us get into a short term house lease for when we first moved here on VERY short notice. She has really been outstanding.

Ross and Deb Gardner-Relocated from Canada

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is my personal recommendation for Lori Goto. I have been Lori’s client; she is an excellent realtor and good friend. I found her to be always dependable; she has excellent follow up skills, and is always reliable.

Lori is always organized, extremely efficient, and has an excellent rapport with her clients. Over the last two years, Lori has helped me through the purchase and sale of my property. Lori consistently demonstrates professionalism and has helped my husband and I find a realtor out of state and has helped us find a good property management company to lease his home. In summary, I highly recommend Lori as your realtor. She is a team player and an asset to any company.

Dear Lori,

Karen and I want to extend our thanks to all that you did to get our house sold. After interviewing three different realtors, we were convinced that you had what it was going to take to make this happen. As it turned out, that was an understatement.

From market analysis to pricing to staging, you were right on the money. The listing, followed by an immediate open house, generated the kind of interest that brought our eventual buyer to the property in that first week.

We would definitely recommend you, and your company, to any of our friends. And we will gladly take a call from any prospect you have that may want to talk to us first-hand.

Again, thank you very much for all you did to sell our home and successfully close the deal.

Sincerely yours,

Richard & Karen Gintz

I would like to thank the Lori for the excellent effort she made in assisting me with the sale of my home. It was a trying and diffcult time, due to the fact that I was in the middle of a divorce. It was my pleasure to work with someone that showed a true commitment in advertising, open houses, listing, and over all service.

Lori was very patient. Lori's professionalism and commitment to making the sale happen went far beyond what any reasonable person could expect. I would like to thank you again Lori, you are definitely an asset to any team.


Jeffery Ivery

Lori was a super partner in the sale of my home. I was impressed from the start--she was very prepared when we first met to set the listing price of my home--and she lived up to my first impression. When we received offers, she helped me evaluate and respond. She returned all calls very quickly, answered all of my questions, and assisted me throughout the process. We had a signed contract within 7 days, and closed quickly thereafter with absolutely no hassles! I recommend Lori to anyone wishing to have first-class service in the sale of their home.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the successful sale of our house - 8807 Honeysuckle Trail. However, the sell would not have become definite were it not for the hard work and dedication of your Listing Manager Ms. Lori Goto. She went above and beyond the call of her duties as a Realtor, and has made the transaction so easy and smooth. Lori's dedicated service and professionalism is truly an asset to your team.

We would definitely recommend Lori and your team to anyone we know who's interested in buying or selling of their property. Thank you again, and we wish you continued success!

My husband and I have nothing but positive feelings about Lori Goto's exemplary service. She was professional, helpful, and patient with us during our home search. I say patience, as we did not necessarily have a definite idea of just where we wanted to relocate in the Austin area, not to mention the fact that our tastes in architecture, etc are pretty broad. From the moment we first met her at that very first showing back in October to the closing last week, she was just terrific!

Dana Rusinak & Denise Doolan

I truly can not tell you how nice it was working with Lori Goto, my wife and I just loved her. She was always so nice and friendly all the time, along with very informative of all the communities in the Austin area. She took me to so many homes to visit and never got tired of showing me homes. When there was a problem with the builder, she was on my side and made the appropriate phone calls to back me up on my decisions. She is an asset to Realty Austin and they are lucky to have her working for their company.

Tom Orozco

Lori Goto has been a second mother to us on our first home purchase. Lori was recommended to us through word of mouth from another first time home buyer; and as with most personal referrals - it checked out. She has been extremely personable, knowledgeable, patient, and helpful in any way imaginable through the entire home purchasing experience. I highly recommend using Lori as your realtor for the Austin area.
