"Caring, compassionate, honest and ethical. These are the words I would use to describe Lois Janish. Lois made the home buying process easy and hassle free. She was able to provide us with knowledge-based information on the homes we were looking at, which allowed us to make informed decisions. Lois was never pushy and always had our interests at heart. She is not your typical salesperson who will do anything to get a commission check. Lois cares more about her clients and getting them the best deal possible, even if that means her commission check will be a little less. Her communication skills are excellent and responds within minutes to any text, email or phone call. Lois was able to walk us through the entire buying process, from seeing the house, making an offer, securing financing, having a home inspection, and closing the sale. I would recommend Lois Janish to anyone who is looking for a REALTOR."
Ingrid Wadel- April 2017 -Maury and Dick Reed
Ingrid Wadel represented us twice. We were extremely impressed with the high level of professionalism, dedication, thoroughness to detail, and outstanding communication and guidance. We are both convinced, we would not have sold our house without her leadership and knowledge. She directed us on when to list our house, how to prepare it for readiness, and through the negotiation process to closing. Not only did she make it effortless for us, but it was a joy to work with her throughout the entire process. We could not have been more pleased, and highly recommend her to anyone. We only wish she had been available when we were buying and selling other houses throughout our 31 years of marriage. How fortunate we were to have such a positive experience; it was solely due to Ingrid !!!
Michelle Sarto- April 2017- @auntlordyThere is nothing better than an agent that knows the area, lives in the area, and is genuinely concerned about your buying experience! Accessible, trustworthy, and pleasure to work with!
Leah Gannon- Feb 2017- Ed Hummel
Excellent real estate professional. Works on behalf of her clients to not only save time and also resources, but her accuracy and timing in all transactions are paramount. Highly recommend!!
Out of the 4 agents I used Lois by far was the best! I should have used her first! She responded fast, answered questions fast and got my home out there! If your looking for an agent that isn't all about her commission look no further!
Pamela Lynn Buck- 2015- bsold6 (showed me homes or lots)
Very professional and quick to respond! Pam possesses a very good knowledge of real estate in Northern Michigan. The service we received was top notch and seemed to have a very good working knowledge of residential and commercial real estate law. Pam was always on time for an appointment and promptly returned calls/emails. As with real estate there are many agents to choose from. Often times I seem to get the part time, home-based clowns who use real estate sales as a second job and treat it that way. Pam takes her job serious and keeps upon the market changes. The company that she works for (Lighthouse) seemed like a very professional outfit as well. They have lots of listings to choose from with multiple offices in the area. If anyone is looking at or know someone who is looking for properties in her area she is the ticket! Thanks again for the good experience!!
I definitely recommend Casey! She is a go-getter. Even when the seller was undecided on our offer, she continued to check on the status of the seller's decision and would keep us updated. Casey is very timely and follows through the entire process. Great job Casey!
Lois Janish- 3/19/2015 - jeannachandonnet (Sold a home in 2015 in Wiley, Scottville, MI 49454.)
“Lois was our buyers agent and sellers agent for the sale of our home and purchase of our new home. She was incredible! Always returned our calls/texts within minutes, never left us wondering what was happening with the process, and even prodding the lender/title company along when it was needed. We couldn't be more pleased. She brought a buyer to our home before it was even officially "listed" and we signed the purchase agreement the same evening. From listening to stories from friends about their experiences with realtors, she was absolutely outstanding. Highly recommended!”
Lori Dickenson - Amazing customer service!
Thank you for the amazing customer service you provided to my family in purchasing our first home. When buying a home, honesty and dependability are qualities important to my family. You were honest and genuinely concerned in my family's interest towards buying our home. Integrity is an immeasurable character trait that is extremely important to my family. You made us feel very comfortable in the home buying process.
In addition, you exhumed professionalism from the beginning of the sale all the way to the end. You and Mindy are a great team of people to have when buying a home. Knowledge and expertise in the buying of our home was prevalent throughout our conversations and interactions. Lighthouse Realty is fortunate to have representing them.
Once again, a huge "thank you" for making our dreams of owning a home not just possible but enjoyable too!

“Lois worked very hard for us and was successful in selling our properties. I recommended her to a friend who was having a hard time selling their farm. She sold it for them. I would recommend her to anyone. She'll do her very best for you.”
Pamela Lynn Buck- 2015- user29049265 (helped me buy a home or lot/land)
Pam is very easy to work with and keeps you up to date on what is going on in the process. I have worked with her a couple of time so far and will again. I have and will continue to recommend her.
After listing my house with another agent and having not one showing, I was amazed when Lois jumped right in and really marketed my home. She got results right away. Almost immediately, the showings started. She was able to sell my house in a timely manner, even though the market was very slow at
Heather Barker- 06/17/2015 - John Bauer (Helped me buy a home)
“Very professional, personable and responsive. She is knowledgeable, communicates well and frequently, and works effectively and efficiently to make sure her clients' needs are met.
Lois Janish 02/04/2015 - derik50 (Sold a home in 2008.)
“Very dedicated, follows through on details,questions, and time frames. Provided accurate comps and analysis. Very good at suggesting ideas in negotiations related to both buying and selling properties.”
Lori Dickenson - A Pleasure to Work With...
Lori was highly recommended to us by a close friend. Our association with Lori during the sale of my parent's home couldn't have been better. In a way, it was sad that the home SOLD so quickly because Lori was such a pleasure to work with. Lori is very personable, professional and has an exceptional understanding of the Real Estate business. I can't imagine working with anyone else. We do not live in the Ludington area, so communication via email or phone was key. Lori was on top of everything that transpired during the sale and made the process completely stress free.
I would definitely recommend Lori Dickenson whether you are buying or selling a home!
Heather Barker- 09/10/2014 - bryguy (Bought a home in 2014 in Norwalk, Filer City, MI 49660.)
"Very personable and willing to go the extra mile to provide excellent service. It was a long involved process to find the home of our dreams and it would not have been possible without Heathers assistance and expertise."
Lois is very professional, competent, honest and follows through with her work start to finish. We have sold and bought a house and property from her and enjoyed the experience. We would highly recommend her.
Lois Janish- 02/10/2015 - larryvk9 (Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Ludington, MI.)
“Lois was very professional and responsive. She was extremely patient with us as we took a long time (and a lot of near misses) to find the best location and house for us. She never forgot about us and was always quick to let us know of any new opportunities. We would recommend her highly.”
Lori Dickenson - Honest-Dependable-Professional
Thank you, and congratulations for successfully selling our property in Branch. Although it was a very challenging endeavor, you were persistent, positive and never gave up, even showing the property deeply covered with snow. I really appreciate the superb attention you gave to the listing, showings and always immediately returning my phone calls and emails and leaving messages for me.
Because of your honesty, dependability and professional approach with your clients, I highly recommend you to others in need of a "GREAT" Real Estate Agent.
Lois Janish- 12/26/2014 - BraddSweatt (Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Ludington, MI)
“Phenomenal real estate agent! After closing on my own home, I have recommended Lois to several of my other friends, and they have been equally as impressed with her.”
Lori Dickenson - We totally trust and respect her!
Buying and selling a home is an extremely stressful life event. There is so much more to it than meets the eye. It is really important to have someone working for you that knows the details and will go to bat for you.
The first Realtor we worked with was a difficult experience for us. He wasn't able to answer questions; we just didn't have a lot of faith in him. In fact, we were trying to purchase a home through him, but Lori ended up beating us out in the process! We'd heard a lot of great things about her, so we decided to call her up.
She will definitely fight for you. She knows her "stuff" and is very honest throughout the entire process. We totally trust and respect her. All in all, she's just a great lady who is outstanding at her job and is very easy to work with. We've closed on our house and we are so excited, but will miss her!

Lois Janish- 02/04/2015 - rsloan62578 (Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Ludington, MI)
“Lois helped me sell my home and purchase a new. My house sold quicker than expected which resulted in me having a tight deadline to select a new home. Lois was there every step of the way answering all of my questions and helping me stay calm. She was available whenever I needed her. I recommend Lois to all of my friends and family who are looking to either sell or purchase a new home.”
Lois Janish- 02/08/2015 - thechandonnets (Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $100K in Scottville, MI.)
“We began talking with Lois about listing our home for sale. She gave us some great pointers and helped us get things ready to list. One week before we had planned on listing our home, Lois called and said she found a potential buyer who would like to look at our home. They came through and made us a good offer, that we accepted! Lois sold our home before we even had it officially listed!”
Lois Janish- 02/04/2015 - bhasenbank (Bought a home in 2015 in Wiley, Scottville, MI 49454.
“I have known Lois for many years. She quickly sold my personal home as well as helped us complete a property acquisition for our commercial expansion. She has a vast network of contacts that allows her to quickly match your buying or selling needs to potential leads. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell property.”
Lori Dickenson - We highly recommend her!
We have used Lori Dickenson for several Real Estate transactions. Lori was always available in person, phone or email when needed. She was very patient taking us through several properties in the middle of a snow storm!
We are out of state and did the majority of contact with Lori via email. She always responded in a timely manner. Lori kept us up to date on the entire transaction, even after closing.
We would definitely use Lori as an agent again and highly recommend her to others.

“I have had the pleasure working with Lois as both a buyer and a seller. She is second to none as a real estate agent! She is a "go-getter" and she communicates wonderfully! Whatever your real estate needs, Lois will get it done!”
Lori Dickenson - We found our Dream Home!
Thank you so much for all your assistance in helping us find our dream home. We'll never forget how excited we were when we both first walked in the front door. My wife was so impressed with the layout of the home.
You were very dependable because we called you many times and we always got a quick answer. You also kept us well informed and up to date with our inspections all the way up our closing. Even though it was a long distance purchase, you made us feel that we were close by. We, as Buyers, had good communication with the Sellers and you!
You're a professional Realtor and we would highly recommend you.
With sincere thanks,
Kirk & Ronnie Mosier
Lori Dickenson - Hardworking Real Estate Professional
As a first time home seller I wanted a Real Estate agent who would not only guide me through the process but also help me reach my financial goals. Lori spent numerous hours sharing her knowledge of market trends as well as offering suggestions to make my home marketable. She is honest, reliable and was by my side representing my best interest through the selling process.
If you want a hard working Real Estate professional, call Lori Dickenson and put her to work for you!
Lori Dickenson - You have great knowledge of your job!
It's been one year since you sold my Dad's house. You'll never know how much we appreciated your prompt call back with answers to our question about taxes one year later!
We made the right decision to list Dad's house with you. You were always "Johnny on the Spot" whenever or wherever we needed to talk with you. NEVER once did you say "I'm to busy". Holidays, weekends or evenings, we always felt we could contact you and not feel like we were bothering you. You were always cheerful and anxious to help us. You always kept us informed and never two days later! As soon as you knew something you were on the phone. Not just to one family member but you personally called all families involved.
Our family would recommend you highly to others wanting to buy or sell Real Estate.
You had great knowledge of your job!

Lori Dickenson - She SOLD our Lakefront Home
In the Fall of 2012 we decided to put our lakefront home on the market. Without hesitation, we listed with LORI DICKENSON.
Within hours our home was listed on the Lighthouse Realty website. The next issue of the local Real Estate Magazine included our home complete with a great display of pictures.
Lori arranged many Open Houses and appointment visitations and did a great job of screening so that we only dealt with serious offers. Since we were in a buying situation with a contingency offer in Las Vegas, Lori contacted our Las Vegas representative and kept her appraised of our Michigan situation.
She handled the closing in a super manner and worked hard to make sure that the funds we received arrived in a timely manner so that we could draw upon them to meet our contingency obligation for our new home.
Doris and I would recommend LORI to anyone contemplating a home sale.
