As a lifetime resident of Jacksonville and the greater Onslow County, few local realtors offer the same insight that I do.  I have witnessed first-hand the phenomenal changes in our infrastructure throughout the years and I am in tune with the city and county's future plans.

I was raised in Jacksonville and graduated from Jacksonville High School.  Upon graduation and after a brief departure, I relocated to Sneads Ferry to raise a family of my own.  While there, I established lasting ties with community as a mother of three sons.  Through my daily interaction with the community, I established my reputation as an energetic, friendly, trustworthy, and hard working individual.

Today, I live in Jacksonville with my husband, a retired Marine Corps officer.  Between my husband's bonds with the local military and my local connections, we have a vast network that enables us to understand home buyer/home seller concerns from a variety of vantage points.

 I enjoy sailing, surfing, traveling and meeting new people.

From day one, Lori was great to work with! Lori conducted her research to determine a fair, reasonable, and marketable price point as there were no comps in our neighborhood for our house. She also listened to our input and took our desired price point into consideration prior to listing out home. Whenever we had questions, Lori responded quickly and was able to explain the situation at hand in a confident manner, while still remaining personable. Lori's team was also great to work with, responding to questions and providing information. I highly recommend Lori and would work with her again in the future! Fun personality and easy to talk to!

Purchased home in September 2009 and sold April 2018, having an excellent experience both times. Would highly recommend buying or selling a home with Lori's team in the future. Top dollar achieved for the target market.

Lori Smith and her team from Team Rentals, Coldwell Banker are amazing. They helped us on beyond to move from our current rental property to our new one. As a property management team, Team Rentals are professionals with compassion for there clients. I would tell everyone who is looking for a home to rent that Lori Smith of Team Rentals in your team to work with.

Valerie was huge improvement from our first home buying experience. She went above and beyond helping us find a home from thousands of miles away. She was thorough, honest and patient. Valerie was very responsive and constantly kept us updated through the buying/closing process. I think my favorite attribute is that Valerie is very straight-forward. We couldn't have ask for a better experience from start to finish! Would highly recommend -- especially for military families PCSing or looking to buy in the area.

Lori has been great throughout the whole house selling process. Our situation is not that uncommon in a military town. My husband and I have had to do almost all of this process from a distance and Lori really made it as easy as she could for us. Thanks Lori!

Lori has been great from day 1! She is very knowledgeable about the area, the market, and pricing our house accordingly! After only a little over 2 weeks on the market our house is under contract - amazing! Every step of the way she has been great with answering our questions, and getting us all the information we have needed. I would highly recommend Lori if you are looking for a realtor in the Jacksonville, NC area!

03/02/2017 - PennyMorgan4

i have been in my home for almost three yrs now and pam ruse was amazing when we went through the very tough jorney we looked at many many homes and she went above and beyond what she had to do

11/01/2016 - rlsims1

Lori is great!! She sticks with you through all the ups and DOWNS! We have worked with Lori for many years while we have bought and sold property in Onslow County. She knows her business and uses her extensive knowledge and experience to benefit her clients. I would recommend Lori to anyone who wants an expert agent who works for the client's interest throughout the entire process.

03/03/2016 - bgollickrdh

I have been very impressed with Lori from the beginning when she came to appraise our property for listing. Relocating is never an easy experience, especially if you have never done it before but she's made it so easy. Her property evaluation was spot on. Upon listing, we had the house under contract within a week! Lori has always been quick to respond to our questions and has given great advice based on her professional experiences. Choose Lori Smith to sell your home and you won't be sorry!

Lori was great throughout the whole selling process. She priced the house right, had beautiful pictures taken, and we got a great offer after just a few showings.

05/10/2015 - Trippij2

Lori helped my family of five find a home back in 2012 in a very sweet and quiet neighborhood in Sneads Ferry. We have kept in touch with her over the last three years, and now are currently using her as our property manager. She is working her tail off for all of her clients, she genuinely cares about all of us and our families. I love being able to talk with her, and get an honest opinion! She knows what to ask for, knows how to ask, and will go above and beyond to help you get everything you're looking for!

Highly Recommended. Lori is very knowledgeable & in tune w/ the Jacksonville area, but her most important attribute is her integrity. She and her team did everything they said they would and never made a promises they could not fulfill. I had a dispute with Berkshire Hathaway with regards to them formally being my property manager, resulting in me owing them 3 months of property management fees on tenants that Lori placed in my home. When she found out about the situation she waived my set up fee (nearly $300) just because she felt, and I agreed, that I had been mistreated by Berkshire Hathaway. The dispute had nothing to do with Lori but she still felt obligated to try to make the situation right. Lori and her team will treat you the way people should be treated and you will never have to worry about her taking advantage of you or your situation. I cannot speak highly enough of her character and would recommend her to anyone.

Though I didn't have the pleasure of working with Lori, the agent we did work with, Nicole Parks, was a delightful person, took us step by step through the whole process, calmed our fears of moving to a whole new state. If I buy another house in the future, I will definitely do repeat business with Nicole and Lori

We strongly recommend her as a realtor!

10/09/2014 - David Wellman

Lori has been selling homes for Wellmans construction 10 years. She is very knowledgeable with pricing, the area and people. She is great at what she does, she always has my interest at heart and makes it as stress free for me as possible. She handles my listings and makes it an easy process by handling the details so that I am able to concentrate on building my homes.
Lori is quick to respond to my emails and calls. She is a wonderful people person that definitely makes everyone a happy ending.

Thank you! Always a pleasure to sell beautiful homes by Wellman's Construction!

Lori relates well on a personal level on the phone and in person. She cuts through the bull and gets to the heart of what I need as a client. Of the many times that I have tried to reach her, she has yet to fail to respond in a timely fashion. She always seeks to match us up with an appropriate property and does not try to push anything on us. She is pleasant, positive and professional and I give her my highest possible recommendation. I have used several realtors in the different areas where I have purchased homes, some of whom were close personal friends and former students, and I rate Lori above them all.

Thank you! It is a great pleasure working with you both!

07/24/2014 - Joe Pappa

Thank you, Joe! I'm always here to help!

07/15/2014 - robert2371

Lori Smith is an awesome agent. She is very knowledgeable of the area and the homes that fit her clients the best. For us, the first place she showed us was just prefect. She listened to exactly what we wanted and what she showed us exactly that. Lori is a great person with a wonderful personality and easy to work with.

Thank you! You were a real pleasure to work with!

07/15/2014 - roy cottle

Lori helped with all the details in selling my property at 342 Murrill Brown Rd. including house and 10 acres of land. Lori helped with providing all the details to the buyer and resolving any issues the buyer had.

Thank you, Roy! Still working hard on your 50 acres for sale!

07/11/2014 - bs5599

Always let me know what was going on through the whole sales process. Always offered suggestions on how to make the house sell faster. Always called back very promptly. Excellent knowledge of marketplace and current values of comps.

Thank you! I appreciate your business, as always!

Lori Smith is one of the absolute best agents I have had the pleasure to work with. Along with her team they all provided excellent communication and contact, friendly interaction and the expertise to make my first home purchase in NC as smooth as possible. I have and will continue to recommend her to as many people as I can, and look forward to working with her again.

Thank you so much!
