I appreciated that everything was explained to me so that I understood tat entire home purchasing process. I appreciated that Lorraine took into consideration our needs and the specific details that we were looking for and always made sure we were comfortable before proceeding to the next step in the process. Lorraine was personable and easy to work with and consistently went out of her way to help me as things came up and it was clear that she cared about making things easier for us.

Lorraine was very efficient in her communication between me and the other agent while making sure all my needs and desires were met. I felt that my agent knew what I needed more than I did and was able to manage my anxiety over things that were out of my control. I appreciate everything she has been and done for me throughout the transaction. Plus all the little extras like providing snacks for my kids during the signing and keeping them occupied while I talked to different contractors. Lorraine can do anything!

–Tess Hart

Choosing Lorraine to be our realtor was one of the best decisions we ever made! She worked tirelessly for us from the moment we contacted her from out of town to the final details of the sale. And since we were moving from out of state, this took a lot of time, communication, patience and skill on her part!!! She was always a pleasure to be with and has a depth of knowledge about the market in Eugene, Springfield, and all of the surrounding smaller towns — this was invaluable to us. In addition, she has many years of experience as a realtor and was completely familiar with the zillions of details re: loans, inspections, sewers. fireplaces, etc. etc. etc.! She was easily reachable, always on time to meetings, very efficient, and the breadth of her knowledge and skill definitely helped us avoid making mistakes. And, best of all, through the many, many months of working together (almost a full year from start to finish!!), she kept our desires in mind and we ended up with a beautiful home in a lovely town that suits us perfectly! We recommend her without reservation!

My husband and I found Lorraine purely by accident and still can’t believe our good fortune. She is astoundingly knowledgeable, professional, efficient and personable. She handled every twist and turn of our search and subsequent purchase calmly, quickly and with great care. Eugene Alternative Realty is lucky to have her on their team.

–-Linda Beers

Working with Lorraine made my experience as a first time home buyer go very smoothly! She is very knowledgeable and works hard to make sure that you understand the whole process. She was super helpful and went out of her way many times to make sure I got what I needed throughout the process. She really went above and beyond.

–Olivia Rogers

I used Lorraine from this realty and she went out of her way to make sure we were taken care. Great follow through. We are out of town and we’re buying for our daughter. She was exceptional in picking out safe neighborhoods.

–Donna Ellison & Chuck Conley

Earlier this year we worked with Lorraine in purchasing our new home in Eugene. We were looking to make a cross-country move from Florida to Oregon and had a very short window to view homes and make our purchase. Lorraine was AMAZING! We had just one week to view homes and make our decision. She helped us plan our search, view many beautiful homes, negotiate a contract and carry us through our closing. Her organization, expertise, and professionalism made the process quick and easy! We would never had accomplished or purchase and relocation without her. We love our new home!! and we love Lorraine!!

–Andrea & Darold Digg

I love how organized and on top of things Lorraine was. She was always so willing to be here for me and make the transaction and preparation for selling my home as seamless as possible. Would you recommend us to friends? ABSOLUTELY! And already have.

–Nicole Garibay

Lorraine was very organized and attentive to my concerns and needs in selling and relocating my family. I had a excellent experience and felt that she had my back in all aspects of the sell and purchase. Her patience with my constant questions and needs for reassurance really helped my anxiety in those stressful moments.

Lorraine helped me sell my house this past summer. She provided great advice on ways to bring up the value before putting it on the market. Being so detail-oriented and a great communicator, Lorraine was able to sell my house above asking price in less than a week!

–Tessa Hart

Best real estate agent and experience to date! Never been a seller but I have been on the buying side having some experience with realtors/salesmen/saleswoman. Totally different experience with Lorraine! We absolutely loved her! Also, the overall business model and ethics are what other companies should strive to be. It felt great to support and be a part of! Loved the family feel of it and support for the community!

What did you like about Eugene’s Alternative, your agent Lorraine and your experience? Everything! She is patient, thorough, dependable, kind hearted, encouraging, more than trustworthy, honest and just all around wonderful! She was very knowledgeable about everything that came up for a first time seller and, sometimes repeatedly, and always patiently, needed to answer already asked questions, doing so with both polite understanding and professionalism. She’s definitely one of a kind and should be recommended to everyone! I wish we had another home to sell… We will miss her bubbly and bright personality! Thank you Lorraine. Eugene’s Alternative Realtors should feel lucky to have such an amazing part of their team!
