In my experience, Lora Cusumano was extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. She was always prepared with written information on houses that might fit our needs and she communicated with us regularly. When viewing houses, she always carried a flashlight to willingly check dark spaces on houses we might like. I always felt that my needs were understood and fully respected and that my interests were protected. She was outstanding and I would strongly recommend working with Lora Cusumano.
Lora Cusumano is an exceptional true buyers agent. I recommend her very highly if you are looking to purchase a home. She will look out for your best interest. As a first time home buyer, I was nervous and overwhelmed by the home buying process but Lora was always there every step of the way and if I had questions she would get back to me with the answer or find the answer for me if she didn't know herself. Even after the home buying process, Lora keeps in contact with me to make sure everything is ok. She has a very kind heart and it carries over to her work ethic. She also has many contacts (lawyers, bankers, home inspectors, etc.) if needed.
Lora was outstanding! We couldn't have done it without her.
Lora will go above and beyond the normal duties of a broker. As a buyer's broker she has your and only your best interests in mind. She spends so much time and effort setting up a perfect match for you finding your new home. She is an amazing woman. I am lucky to have had her as my broker. Thank you Lora for all you did for me.
Lora was an exceptional broker always looking out for our best interest. Her knowledge of homes in and out made her help and opinions invaluable during our search. Lora was ever so patient with the input of my entire family and her kindness is unmatched.
I don't think my review will do Lora justice - she is simply just the BEST!!! She is thorough and listens to all of your concerns. As a Buyer’s Agent, she is legally required to work on your behalf, unlike a seller’s or dual agent, who may be looking out for the seller and the sale price. She genuinely cares that you get the best property at the best price. She looks out for you and your best interests as the buyer. Whenever we needed more information or for something to be coordinated (whether it was a viewing, inspection, appraisal, etc.), she was on top of it! We really felt like she could handle our business without us having to be involved, which is great if you're busy and don't really have the time to be on top of someone. Months before we decided to start looking at properties and to have Lora as our Buyer’s Agent, my fiancé and I interviewed her and another agent. We wanted to make sure that whoever we chose would really be on our side and was knowledgeable of the real estate market in our area (Queens and Long Island). She blew us away – that other agent had no chance. Later on, after we started looking at places and realized how much work she was putting in for us as her clients, we recognized how valuable her time is. The fact that she took time out of her busy schedule for potential buyers was truly impressive and shows that she is willing to put in work for you! Her email and text responses are prompt. We would email her at 9/10pm, and we would have a response next day at 6am. And then throughout the day as we would reach out to her with questions! I really don’t know how she did it, because when we were physically with her during property viewings, we had her undivided attention. (Not to put her personal life out there, but, while she was helping us look for places, she was also going through family stuff. Through that, we never felt like she was dismissing us or too busy to handle our concerns. She is really a hardworking professional!) It took us 6 months, from when we first started looking at places (first at apartments then at houses) to close on our house. Lora was with us through the entire process and always provided our bank with whatever information they needed. I know they say you shouldn’t mingle vendors during real estate transactions, but she referred us to our real estate attorneys, who were also great. Aside from her professionalism, Lora is a sweetheart. She is a beautiful person inside and out. It was more than a pleasure working with her. After we closed on the house that she found for us (despite our very high expectations), my fiancé and I said to ourselves that we missed riding around with her looking at properties. She made the whole process joyful and bearable, which is great considering how stressful it can be. It’s been 10 months since we closed on our house and last saw Lora, but we still correspond via email just to say “Hey.” That’s the kind of agent that she is – our time with her was personal and pleasant, more than just a transaction. We just happen to now be first-time homeowners ALL THANKS TO LORA!
Lora went above and beyond for me helping me purchase the perfect home. She works for you and protects you and your hard earned money. Who would want to deal with a real estate agent that just looks like you as a commission? Lora works for you and wants you in the perfect house. She doesn't sell you on a house, she points out the good and the bad. Rare in the real estate business. Highly recommend her!
Lora was honestly one of the best brokers we could have had as first time home owners. She guided us through each process, gave us wonderful suggestions, and was extremely knowledgeable on any questions we had. If we ever decide to look for another house, or have family or friends looking for one, she would be the first person we would go to or suggest.
As a first time home buyer, I could not have been more fortunate in finding Lora to work with through an unfamiliar process. Her knowledge, dedication, and terrific demeanor made what can be a frustrating process easy and often fun. Its rare to find that balance of professionalism and personality, but Lora embodies it. After working with Lora throughout the entire home buying experience, I don't even have to give it a second thought when I encounter a friend or colleague who is considering purchasing a new home. I immediately direct them to Lora, knowing that their needs and expectations will not only be met, but most likely exceeded.
Very professional and took the time to help me find what I was looking good for.
I am extremely grateful & fortunate that I had Lora Cusumano as my Real Estate Agent!
For six months we were searching for a home with the same realtor who just showed us properties on the "remax" MLS search. We sometimes did 9 houses a day, me driving her around and me buying lunch. Once day my spouse brought a property up to me he found on google maps and she was hesitant and barely wanted to submit our offer. We were in love with the property and wanted to offer more than they were asking. We ended up in contract after walking her through it, but somehow after being "under contract" for three months (seller kept sending extension addendums) they wanted 'out' and without putting up a fight my realtor sent us a cancel and release to sign to 'bust out' of contract. At this point we were expected to leave our apartment in a few days and we panicked. We couldn't believe she kept pushing it on us and even took us to look at a few more homes. After becoming frustrated with our at-the-time "realtor" we looked at a few properties with a new realtor who didn't seem to be interested in what we wanted and we saw nothing special. I was given Lora's number by my client, muhammad's exact words were: "She is the hardest working person I know." The realtors we were using were not aggressive enough for our situation and Lora proved that she was within the first phone call: I asked her if she would be able to take us on as a client and show us some homes after telling her our horror story and how we lost the home of our dreams... It wasn't until she listened and then asked us: "Forget about a new home for a minute... was THAT the home of your dreams? DO YOU WANT THAT HOME?" I was shocked she even pressed the issue but the truth was we were depressed and no home was like THAT home. We said we would do anything to have that home... Lora simply said: "Let me see if I can get you to close on it..." We were back in contract within two weeks and she even got us $1200 MORE in sellers concessions! Thanks to Lora, we are now happily living in the home of our dreams and plan to stay here for a LONG time. She will be our PERMANENT go to for any properties we decide to purchase in the future, as well as a top recommendation to all friends and family... to anyone! She is INCREDIBLE! I highly recommend her to anyone!
Lora's professionalism and experience were very helpful to us. She was able to find us the house we like in a short time (less than a month from start to closing on the house). She understood our needs very well and consulted us in many various issues that were extremely beneficial during our house hunting process. Lora put our interests first and was willing to make necessary negotiations on the price as well as the terms for the contract. We would highly recommend her to our friends and relatives in the future.
Lora was extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, supportive and patient. Her professional yet personable nature made our entire experience easy and enjoyable. She never failed to respond to emails, calls or texts and stayed on top of every situation that came up. She went above and beyond our expectations!
Lora was very knowledgeable and has a great personality. She truly worked in our best interests. We would recommend her to everyone. She is great!!! We have a home because of Lora!!!
