"I have built my business to be well known in the area, always being one of the areas top producing agents.
I am a "no nonsense" agent. If you are looking for an agent that gives it to you straight, "no fluff", I am your agent! I will work very hard for all of my clients and customers with a promise of quality service.

I have never seen things impossible, with my business or in life: I think of a glass half full rather than half empty. I will always look for the way to accomplish our goals regardless of the obstacles.

"Dear Lori, 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!" --- Pam and Russ Bentley
"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!" --- Joyce Horowski
"Dear Lori, 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.
"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! Sincerely," ---- Zach and Cindy Zost
"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." --- Mark and Carianne Siegel
"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
"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!" --- R. Salamin
"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! Your friends." --- Jim and Lind
"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." --- Doris and Jim Ford (currently living in the sunshine of Las Vegas)
“We sold two homes and purchased one thru Lori and she did an excellent job for us. She was always there for us if we needed to talk to her about something and she always kept us well informed as to what was happening. I would recommend Lori to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home. I know that she would take excellent care of them!” --- Pat Slimmen
"...She was prompt & courteous & worked diligently in getting the property sold. I have worked with other realtors in the past who have listed and then did nothing to keep them in the public's eye, Lori called potential buyers and was in constant contact with me, Lori was confidential & diplomatic, always available, I would certainly use Lori again." --- Deborah Tesch, Troy, MI
"Lori responded quickly & very professional to all of our needs. Lori's cheerful & friendly disposition made our moving experience easy & pleasurable. We recommend Lori because of her integrity & ability to get things done!" --- Dick & Liz Donakowski, Ludington, MI

"Lori has always been prompt and dependable and all of my dealings with her, keeping me informed of her advertising and marketing promotions, results of showings, as well as giving me her recommendations. I have been pleased with her standards of business practices and am happy to recommend her and her services to others." --- Mary Lou Frank, Ludington
"I found Lori to be very cooperative, communicating all new listings that fit the bill, she would always call back in a reasonable time, I found her to be honest, kept me informed, answered all questions and explained options. I would definitely use her again if I was in the need and definitely recommend her to others looking for real estate." --- Ed Bussey, Grand Rapids
"She was very dependable and honest, she let us know of new listings as soon as she heard about them. We ended up buying a home from a for sale by owner who had no clue as to what to do. We called Laurie and she was willing to help us at no cost to us. That is a true friend not just a realtor. She also helped us sell our house; she had a buyer in three days after she listed it, the buyer paid full price. We refer to her anyone who is looking. Our experience with her was a very pleasant one." --- Dennis and Diane Tacktor, Ludington
"She is very easy to contact, prompt with our needs, extremely helpful with the entire process. She is always the one we recommend. She goes above and beyond when it comes to her job and we are extremely grateful for all her help.” --- Rick and Joan Vidak, Scottville
“We felt lucky that we ended up with Lori. We had went to another realtor in town and he made us feel like we were bothering him because I purchase was not a big one. Laurie took excellent care of us, we never once had a problem contacting her. If you choose Lori as your realtor you choose the right one.” --- Karen Gromatiski, Plainfield, IL
“We were pleasantly surprised at how smoothly the process went. Dealing with Lori made things very nicely. She was straightforward and courteous to both buyer and seller. We would feel confident in enlisting her help again and we would recommend her to our family and friends.” --- Ike and Jeanne Spriensma, Jenison, Michigan

Without any second thoughts, I would be very happy to have you represent me in any future sales of property.” --- Donald Swidorsky, Manistee
“As our sales rep, Lori was very helpful in the sale of the property in Walhalla. Very easily reached, Laurie even helped us with snow removal, we would ask Lori to do the job again.” --- Dan and Pat Gross, Jackson
“A four-day cash deal must be some kind of record. In our marriage, we have bought and sold five homes but never did we receive the service and support that you provided in our Ludington experience. Even though we were 300 miles away, it seemed as though you were just across town by the multiple contacts you made each week. Your help in selling some of the furnishings is greatly appreciated, which we did not expect from you as our real estate agent. We are preparing to sell our home and temperance. I wished you lived in our county so we could list with you again. In my experience, you were outstanding and performance and production.” --- Paul Sprague, Temperance
“Your service was well handled and you kept me informed with the progress, as it was ongoing. I found you honest and dependable as well as courteous at all times.” --- Mary Jane Price
“I just sold my house in Mason County. I found Laurie to be very dependable and she would keep me informed of every aspect of my sale from start to after the final closing date. I have dealt with her in both the selling and buying a property over the past five years and want to say you will not find a more honest or professional sales person in the area.” --- Jerry Austin
“You have always been a go-getter. You work hard for the client and even harder to get the right deal completed. You kept me informed throughout the whole process, up to and including closing. You also contacted me after the sale to be sure I was happy with the deal. You have always been a wonder to work with and easy to get in touch with at all times. You have a great sense of humor, but also the seriousness to get the job done. I recommend your services to others as I know that they will be treated as well as I was.” --- Bernard Topping, Scottville
“She was our realtor and sold a property for us this month. Lori was very thorough and efficient. She communicated well through email and letters, keeping all four of us informed and up-to-date. Whenever I emailed her, I heard back from her right away. I feel we got a good price for a property and would recommend her to anyone.” --- Beth Hensel, Phoenix, Arizona
“You were always on top of things and very caring. You went far beyond your job description. We know we put you to the real test of a real estate agent and you pulled through with an A+. You were always honest with us and very dependable. This is what I call, not only a great realtor, but someone who really cares about people. You did a superb job of negotiating for us. We have worked with several realtors in searching for a new house, and we must say you are the best by far. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. We love our house and thanks to you we have it.” --- Larry and Diane Coffey, Pentwater
“We recently purchased a nice home in downtown Ludington after a search lasting, with pauses here and there, for years. I think her willingness to work with us for that long of a period speaks volumes by itself. That kind of flexibility was very valuable to us as people trying to buy a house long distance while living and working 170 miles away. Lori was very pleasant to work with and always responded to emails and urgent requests for digital photos in a very timely manner. This house by experience was much better than our previous experience and we give much of the credit for that to Lori. We would both be happy to serve as a reference for Lori and answer any questions you might have if you are considering working with her.” --- Steve Bachlada and Kris Campbell, Lansing
“We know there were a few bumps in the road, not the fault of yours mind you, and we were sure glad you looked out for our best interests before during and even after our home purchase. You are a pleasure to work with and we would most definitely hire you and your company again for our real estate needs.” --- Kurt and Tammy Malzahn, Scottville
“We appreciate your assistance and efforts on our behalf. You made yourself available to answer any questions we had at anytime of the day. Your courteous and professional attitude and manner made our purchase a pleasant experience.” --- Wade and Mary Freel, Scottville
“You have the unique talent to be friendly and handle business and in efficient manner. Please keep us on your list of good friends.” --- John and Mary Bergh, Ludington
“Lori is an aggressive, competitive realtor, yet ability to work well with the customer is outstanding. She has excellent communicative skills, as well as great networking skills. Lori stays right on top of each and every one of her listings and is consistently posts you on the progress or need for improvement of your listing. She is prompt on calling back and details what she can do for them. If listing a property for a person recommended, Lori follows through completely.” --- Susan TerHaar, Scottville
“We dealt with two other realtors with no results. Lori did an excellent job for us. She returned phone calls. We had several obstacles to overcome – Lori was very persistent and following through. We highly recommend Lori for any real estate needs.” --- Larry and Susan Lokers, Zealand
“You have been a true professional in your capacity as a buyer’s agent and have gone far and beyond your call of duty for us as prospective buyers. We would like to assure you that whatever referral business we can provide you with an any continued business we plan to do in the future we will give you.” --- Craig and Andrea Case, Taylor
“Being first time buyers can be hard but Laurie made it a whole lot easier. She worked with us for two years in our quest for the right place. She was never hard to find, plus we love the fact that she worked around our busy schedule to show us houses. I have already recommended her to several people. It was a pleasure dealing with such an honest and hard-working agent.” --- Richard and Tammy Brown, Scottville
“During the difficult time of dealing with a death in the family she was the one person I knew I could count on. Living four hours away, Lori made it very easy and took the worry and stress out of selling the house. We were in constant contact through email. Each time the house was shown I received an immediate notice as to how the showing went and comments from the potential buyers. She was always courteous us to my renter. Lori is the best realtor I've ever dealt with. Her positive attitude and dedication made my selling experience a good one. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor.” --- Vicky Abair, Fort Gratiot
“I would advise anyone wanting to sell their property to list with Mrs. Dickenson. She is knowledgeable, professional and tireless worker on her client’s behalf.” --- Diane Nemitz, Ludington
“Lori genuinely tried to understand what we were looking for. She never seemed more interested in selling us one of her listings that in helping us find a good fit. We felt that she became our friend, not just a realtor. When we finally found the property we wanted, she seemed as pleased as we were. If when we need the service of a realtor again, we will not hesitate to call Lori Dickenson. I have recommended her services to others and will not hesitate to do so again.” --- Donald Veldt, Scottville
“I have been working closely with Laurie and have been extremely impressed. An extremely hard worker and more than qualified to market your property. Lori is a fantastic agent and knows her stuff. The one thing that sets her apart from the rest of the agents and Ludington is her no-nonsense, straightforward approach to closing the deals. The bottom line is that Lori will get your house sold. My concern is that the other agents are going to tell you what you want to hear rather than the truth.” --- Tom Jacobs, the Home Lending Center, Grand Rapids
“We would highly recommend her. She is extremely knowledgeable and continually updated on her education. Prompt return calls, she puts forth a great deal of effort to find homes for the buyers and buyers for the sellers. She works extremely hard and her business and is continually looking for new ways to improve her service to her clients. We would rate her service as the best there is!” --- Archie and Karen Devereaux, Branch
