In early March 2020, my mother passed away. Due to circumstances regarding the mortgage, we had to act quickly to sell her home in San Jose. As you can imagine with the world dealing with a pandemic, shelter in place orders, and our family grieving this was a very difficult time. Lori is not only a great realtor, she is a wonderful friend. I mentioned to Lori in early April that we were really overwhelmed and concerned if and how we’d be able to sell my mother’s home by June. Lori said, “I’m going to help you and we’re going to make this happen, don’t worry!” Since Lori’s real estate expertise is on the peninsula (San Mateo County area), she said it would be best to have a Compass agent that specializes in the San Jose area to represent us. The next day she spent three hours calling and speaking with potential agents to find the agent that best suited our needs. The following day, Lori, the agents I selected, and I had a conference call to discuss the property, timeline, expectations, etc. The team of agents I worked with were very compassionate, professional, and compliant during the shelter in place mandate. We received multiple offers and closed escrow in June! Thank you so much Lori for your help, positivity, and support!

In the beginning stages of the Pandemic and after living in our home for 42 years, we relocated out of state. We needed someone we could trust and who would "push" us in the right direction to sell our home. We had connected with Lori previously and appreciated her integrity, honesty and drive, so we choose her to help us transition to the next chapters in our lives. She was Awesome! She brought in outside talent to assess our home. That gave us direction to ready our home for the market. She helped us understand the need to transition from thinking of our home, as our home, but now as a commodity to sell. She cared about the transition we were going thru and was gracious and patient. Her selflessness showed when she needed to leave the area to address family issues and she partnered with another realtor to get us across the finish line to sell our home. So, if you are looking for someone who has the following characteristics, honesty, truthfulness, integrity, caring, and is knowledgeable She her clients first, then you should contact Lori Warren!


Lori was very astute with her recs to me. She kept her eye out and found the perfect house for me. She recapped the comps and offered good comparative notes. Lori really knows Redwood City and the surrounding area. She was incredibly familiar with the educational system. She was a winner in all regards. I would definitely use her for my next sale and purchase.

Lori was a fantastic agent from start to finish! She's highly skilled, knows the Peninsula market so well, is professional, caring and a great negotiator. She made selling our home a great experience and we will be using her again for all our real estate transactions! Would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!


After getting a recommendation from a friend at work, we met Lori at one of her open houses where we instantly felt at ease; she's knowledgeable, quick, funny, and honest. We quickly scheduled a get to know you "interview" at our local park where she got to know more about us, our family we brought our two girls, and our dream of owning a home. It was instantly a great fit. Within a week, she already had a possible off-market in mind for us. They were debating about going to market, but Lori stayed on top of it and kept us in the loop. The evening before our viewing we learned another realtor got their clients in and put an offer that expired the next day at our original appointment time. She gave us all the disclosures that night and we quickly rescheduled for first thing in the morning. We knew it was time-sensitive. Lori allowed us to process and talk it out on our own without feeling pressured but gave us a time frame to ensure we could make the deadline if need be. Once we told her we wanted this house, she put her foot on the gas and got our offer in within an hour. You can tell she is passionate about her job and about helping her clients, no matter who they are. We know she sells much more lucrative and expensive homes, but we always felt like a priority, and the day we put our offer in, it couldn't have been more apparent. This was our first and only offer. We realize it doesn't usually happen this way, and we fully believe that this only happened because of Lori. We HIGHLY recommend Lori, she's fun to work with, understands her clients, proactive, responsive, and gives it her all.


We absolutely loved working with Lori! Buying on the peninsula is nuts and she made buying a house easy and exciting, which I know, sounds impossible, but it's true, our first offer was accepted! In a word, Lori Burrows Warren is AMAZING. My husband and I both bought and sold a home this summer, in this insane, super-intense Redwood City real estate market. Both my husband and I have demanding careers and we have two small children, but Lori worked around our schedules and was incredibly engaging with our kids as well, so much so that our 2 year old continues to ask for her even though we're done with the process. Lori walked us through the process of prepping, staging, and selling and had a network of experts gardener, handyman, stager, etc. that she recommended along the way. We ended up getting about $100K over what we'd anticipated for the home we sold, which allowed us to purchase the home we'd been dreaming of oversized lot on the end of a cul de sac in a beautiful, family friendly neighborhood. Lori knows Redwood City like the back of her hand. Once we decided on a home, she advised us on what to bid in this crazy market, worked basically 24 hours straight to get in a clean and complete offer that we made literally one day after the home went on the market. And we are THRILLED with our new home. All this to say, I cannot recommend Lori more highly. If I could give 100 stars I would!
