    My Client Testimonials

    Lorraine was very easy to work with and did a great job in our house purchase. She is very patient and knowledgeable about everything we needed to know. Teresa and Richard B.
    Lorraine was on top of everything, making sure all the necessary documents and inspections were done. She was patient with me as it took me over 6 months to find a home. She took time out of her schedule to show me the properties I was interested in seeing. Pam and Chris V.
    We just sold a house and bought one with Lorraine. She is amazing!!! Always on our side, prompt, very friendly. We hope we can remain friends for a long time. She is a real fighter for what is right for you as a seller and a buyer. We will definitely work with her again if the need arises. We would highly recommend her to anyone!! Gail and Fred B.
    Lorraine was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. She is very detail oriented. As a friendly yet thorough negotiator, she helped us sell and purchase. Because of her attention, the buying and selling went very fast. We always knew the next step because Lorraine communicated very well. I highly recommend her as an agent. Leah and Wade L.
    Lorraine went above and beyond under great time pressure to market, sell, and close on both our previous home and the one to which we moved. She priced our home exactly correctly. Due to circumstances beyond her control, she sold our home three times when our first two buyers pulled out. Nevertheless we put our home on the market July 5, and closed on our old house and the new one on August 16. All the while she handled the issues that crop up when you put a home on the market and knew who to go to to effect required repairs, and managed the negotiations in an ethical and open manner to keep things going. She is a gem and a pleasure with which to work. Christine and Bill T.
    Ms Lorraine is a very dedicated professional realtor. Based on my experience, She pursues a deal honestly, looking out for the best interest of the person she is representing. She found a house that specifically met my needs and negotiated the repairs that were critical for my situation such as replacing an electrical panel. Rick F.
    Lorraine assisted us in the purchase of our first home. At the beginning we were nervous about the process, but Lorraine's knowledge and experience really helped alleviate that stress and uncertainty. She was flexible, responsive, enjoyable to work with, and fought hard for our best interests. I'm not sure what more we could have asked for. I particularly impressed with Lorraine's ability to adapt to our requests. There were times we wanted to see houses that didn't fit the mold of what we had initially described to her, but she quickly got a feel for what we were really looking for and didn't hesitate to drive to all ends of Knoxville to help us find the right home. When it came time for negotiations she kept us calm through some rough patches and went above and beyond to keep the deal afloat. Justin D.
    "I would not have made it without Lorraine. She guided me through my first home purchase with grace and detailed care. Give her the opportunity and she will be with you every step of the process!" Josh M.
    Lorraine was extremely helpful and knowledgeable with my home purchase. She gave advice when I needed it and solutions when I was just talking about my own problems. I could not imagine buying a home without her assistance. Whether it is your first home or your seventh, I would highly recommend Lorraine. Michael N.
    "I can't speak highly enough of my experience working with Lorraine. I first met with her about a year before I wanted to put my house on the market. I had met with other realtors but her knowledge and expertise over the others was very impressive. We walked through the house and she informed me as to what I would have do to the house to get the price I was hoping for. The day it went on the market I had back to back showings and by that evening had three offers on the table, one of which was accepted. Lorraine then continued to help me understand and get through the inspections and appraisal process, staying "on top" of it all the entire time. I think her knowledge of the market, and pricing the house right, was the reason for the quick sale. It was a pleasure working with Lorraine and I would highly recommend her to others." Joe K.
    Lorraine will go to the ends of the earth and back for her clients. She will stop at nothing to ensure they are taken care of and things are done correctly. She fought a won many battles for us through a very tough new construction. We are very grateful to have her through this experience." Stephen
    Lorraines desire is to have the client get the right house or the best sale, not just to make a sale so she gets a commission. I trust her completely. I appreciate all the things she does that she doesnt have to and her patience with me. I recommend her to all and I will never use another realtor. Barbara Z.
    "A real go getter with a can-do attitude in the face of any challenge, Lorraine is the agent you want on your side! With a strong sense of morals and fairness paired with her unparalleled attention to detail, Lorraine is at the top the realty game when it comes to getting you the home you want for the price you want. When troubles came our way, both with our first home purchase and our most recent, her advice was game changing. Not only have we seen her go above and beyond for us, but I've watched her work tirelessly for other clients as well. We will be using her in the future for all our real estate needs! Thank you again for all you do." Samantha M.
    "This was my first time buying a house. I was nervous, and worried about everything I would be dealing with. But with Lorraine, she made it a breeze. She always kept me up to date on everything, and made me aware of things to keep an eye out for. At times when I would get worried or overwhelmed, she was the voice of reassurance that I needed. She kept me going, and even checked in from time to time to see how I was doing. Other reasons that she was great, were that she has many connections in the area. She was able to get me some great prices on other things that were involved with closing. If you are looking for someone who can be your guide and make a difficult task, a very smooth experience, I suggest Lorraine! And if I ever sell my new house, I'll be going back to her because she's someone I couldn't have done this without!" Christian L.
    "Lorraine helped us buy our first home, and we found her expertise so helpful! We gave an offer on a house that had another bid already and managed to get it under contract. During the inspection period we had quite a few potential issues identified, which would have been really intimidating for us if it wasn't for Lorraine. She exceeded our expectations, for sure, in calling specialists to investigate the problems, devise solutions, and get quotes for repairs. When it came to final negotiations, we were very comfortable with our position, since she helped us get all the information on the house. She also did a great job advising us on that final negotiation, which went down without a hitch!" Lauren N.
    "Working with Lorraine made our home selling process so simple and worry-free. She was quick to answer any calls/texts and worked hard to make sure we got a great price on our home. I would highly recommend her to anyone!" Sarah T.
    "Lorraine is highly attuned to her clients needs and expectations...she is organized, prepared and always ahead of schedule. Selling our home was a breeze throughout the entire process-no surprises and no regrets. We look forward to partnering with Lorraine on our upcoming purchase! We feel very secure in her knowledge and ability." Rosemary M.
    "I can truly say that I am very pleased with the service I received from Lorraine Whitson. She was very efficient and she really looked out for us. I recommend Lorraine to anyone who is looking for a home. She is outstanding. I am thankful she came into our lives." Sybil H.
    We were 1st time homebuyers in every sense. Lorraine expertly guided us through the process stopping to fully answer every question and helped ease our concerns. After viewing and unsuccessfully bidding on several homes in this rapid fire housing market we got a little discouraged but our Realtor did not and kept tirelessly looking for the perfect home for us. She found us our dream home and we got an amazing deal on it too! We are completely satisfied with her top notch service!!!! Dustin K.
    "I give Lorraine Whitson five stars in all categories as a realtor. She has exceptional local knowledge of the local real estate area. She has decades of expertise in the real estate process. She responds immediately to her client's needs and goes above and beyond to make sure her clients get the home of their dreams. She is an expert negotiator and advises her clients, because of her wide experience, on the best decisions to make 8n their interest. She found us a great home and not only is she a great agent, she is a person we are glad to call our friend." Jamie S.
    "Lorraine is the most competent realtor I have ever used. She gives you every detail and keeps you on task all the way through till your closing. She is tireless finding you the right home and she knows the pros and cons for the different Knoxville areas. I can not give one criticism about Lorraine or her service. I will definitely recommend her to others and use her again. Carol T.
    "I can’t speak highly enough of Lorraine Whitson as our real estate agent. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and hard work ethics are very much appreciated and respected.
