About Lori Durrett

I started in Real Estate by managing apartments while attending school at The University of Texas in Austin.  After graduation, I moved to Dallas and continued my career in property management.

I then transitioned into Relocation at a time where many large corporations were moving their headquarters and thousands of families to the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex.  I gained firsthand knowledge of the many tasks involved in moving and learned to anticipate my clients’ needs. 

After moving back to Houston, I redirected my career towards Sales, Marketing and Training and have always liked working with people.  Approximately 12 years later, I found herself in the situation of needing to sell my family home of 52 years.  That experience really piqued my interest so I went back to school and became a licensed Realtor. I continue to stay on top of Real Estate trends and related topics through continuing education courses and active involvement with networking groups.

I pride myself on superior personal service before, during and after my clients’ transactions.  I believe that Real Estate is still a relationship business and have developed many long-term friendships along the way.  I listen attentively to my clients to find their perfect home or what they are needing in the sale of a home and guide them step by step through the process.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially my grandchildren.  I also enjoy experimenting with cooking, all types of music and love to attend concerts.  I love all outdoor activities such as barbeques, picnics, hiking, and going to the beach or lake.  My favorite vacation destination so far has been Australia, but I hope to explore many other countries.

Please give me the opportunity to earn your trust.  I represent Sellers, Buyers, Landlords and Renters.
