Testimonials

Lorraine has everything someone would want in a realtor and more.

Choice for a realtor was an easy one...lorraine has everything someone would want in a realtor and more. She is incredibly knowledgable with the real estate market in sf. she has a lot of experience in both the buying and selling markets. Without a doubt, Lorraine has her client's best interest at heart. She was incredibly attentive and mindful to our needs, preferences and requests. In the selling of our condo she found us a great buyer on the very first open house, for a significant amount over asking. she also helped us negotiate a reasonable price for the home we bought which likely could have gone for quite a bit more. Lorraine made sure the business side of everything was smooth and clear and as straightforward as could be which was very comforting given how unfamiliar we were to the process. To top it off, Lorraine is fun, warm, engaging and personable and makes looking for houses feel enjoyable even when you've looked at more than you can count! 

i highly recommend lorraine.

Lorraine is assertive and direct... Lorraine is patient and persevering.

My husband and I met Lorraine while she was diligently selling a home near our Ingleside rental.  

Unlike other realtors, who wouldn't give us the time of day once I mentioned I was a USMC Veteran looking to use my housing benefits to purchase a home for the first time in San Francisco, Lorraine didn't hesitate to take us on as clients.  

Lorraine is assertive and direct.  She ensured that I was able to use my Veteran's benefits even when the sellers of the property tried to steer us into the hands of a traditional lending option. 

Lorraine is patient and persevering.  She worked with my husband and I for 6, seemingly long months while we navigated through the oodles of government paperwork to finally purchase our new home.

We're grateful to Lorraine for taking the time, effort and having the wherewithal to be our advocate and friend while still maintaining a professional relationship with us.

Keep up the great work, Lorraine!  We appreciate you.

Lorraine was welcoming, energetic and helpful which made the whole process comfortable and seamless during a difficult real estate market.

It was such a pleasure working with Lorraine. I knew I wanted to work with her when I met her at an open house in SF. I was in the process of searching for an agent to list my home so I went to open houses to find an agent and to see how they treated potential buyers. Lorraine was welcoming, energetic and helpful which made the whole process comfortable and seamless during a difficult real estate market. She works hard for her clients! She was great and walked me through the selling process by providing me comps and insight to where my home needed to be priced to sell there hadn't been a sale of a home like mine in at least 6 months, helping with staging decisions, inspections, and running the numbers. She made sure I understood the pros and cons of all decisions. Her energy is amazing! She worked hard to sell my home using unique marketing tools that no other agent offered. She has a bull dog determination and her excellent negotiating proved beneficial in this difficult market. I would definitely work with her again.

She’s the best. We sold our house and made a great friend along the way!

After trying to sell our home for over a year with another real estate agent, we found Lorraine. She took the time to go through the psychology of the buyer and educated us on exactly what to do with our home to sell it. And she knew what she was talking about! She sold our home for more than we expected and we were able to realize our dream and move to Mexico! She’s the best. We sold our house and made a great friend along the way!

Lorraine is absolutely phenomenal.

All positive. Lorraine is absolutely phenomenal.

I wandered into her office after deciding I wanted to check out something like five apartments that had already been sold, with no idea they weren't on the market, and I'm so happy I did. And stumbling over from the East Coast, I knew nothing about San Francisco. She explained everything to me and we started looking at apartments later that week. We closed on the perfect place in less than two months.

I was not looking to spend much and that did not impact her commitment at all. She's genuine, understanding of odd needs and schedules, and very patient. She even checked in after closing about repairs, insurance, smoke alarms, notably eclectic neighbors... the list goes on. I can be hopeless and she made sure not to leave me hanging. Took her out for a fabulous, much needed celebratory drink after everything, and consider her a friend.

And of course, I LOVE my apartment. Could not have hoped for a better, more suitable place.

After meeting with Lorraine, I felt confident in her acting as my advocate in my search.

I had been passively looking for a condo located centrally in San Francisco for over a year and finally decided to make a move before the market appreciated out of my price range as well as take advantage of record low interest rates. I met with one relator who didn't really seem to get what I was looking for. After meeting with Lorraine, I felt confident in her acting as my advocate in my search.  She had extensive knowledge of the competitive, low inventory, difficult San Francisco housing market and looked outside the box to find me an off the market listing that met all my needs. For anyone who has looked in SF, it truly is invaluable to have a local relator on your side. I would recommend her to any family member or friend.

She did an amazing job in making sure the transaction was smooth and stress free.

I worked with Lorraine to purchase a home for my daughter while attending law school in S.F. Working with her was an enjoyable experience. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and the process. I’ve bought many homes in my life and she took the stress out of the transaction. I live in L.A. and she did an amazing job in making sure the transaction was smooth and stress free.

It was a pleasure working with Lorraine and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone who wants to buy a property in California.

Wow! My landlord was trying to kick me out of my apartment, I winded up beginning a very reluctant house/condo search in SF. In the process, I  randomly met Lorraine at an open house, I told her about my situation, she handed me her business card and the following day we had our first meeting. I was very impressed by the depth of her bay area real estate knowledge. When it came to educating me about what I needed to do as a first time homeowner, she did not hesitate to telling what I needed to know or sending me informative documents. She pretty much gave me all the possible scenarios based on my financial situation.

Once I got all pre-approved and pre-qualified from the bank, Lorraine already had a list of places she wanted me to see. During the process, she was constantly communicating with me  about every details of the buying process. Once one of our offers got accepted in SF, Lorraine was once again on top of things. She was constantly communicating with the seller to make sure they fix all the issues raised after the inspection.  During this process Lorraine was an excellent adviser as to what steps I needed to take. What blew my mind the most, was her extreme attention to detail and how well she is organized.

It was a pleasure working with Lorraine and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone who wants to buy a property in California. This woman knows her stuff!
She is very assertive, very meticulous and also a great communicator.
She treated me in very protective fashion, always making sure that I was happy.
Folks, don't waste your time just give her a call, she'll have your back!

She was extremely helpful and generous with her time, looking at houses with us, providing opinions, and putting us in touch with some really helpful professionals to assist.

My wife and I recently signed Lorraine Meier to represent us as a buyers broker in our search for a house in SF. She was extremely helpful and generous with her time, looking at houses with us, providing opinions, and putting us in touch with some really helpful professionals to assist when a particular question was outside her area of expertise. When we ran into difficulties with our first mortgage broker she provided us with a referral to the excellent Kenny Heller at Wells Fargo who made a huge difference. He and Lorraine worked together as a team and made everything much easier for us. 

We ended up making a successful offer on a single family home in the Outer Sunset, and the sellers noted how organized and well put together the offer package was. Lorraine did a fantastic job communicating with the sellers. Once our offer was accepted she continued to stay involved and was there for us at every stage of the process as we signed the dozens of necessary forms.

Thank you Lorraine for all your support and help!
