"I am writing to express my extreme delight and satisfaction with our experience with Robi Lorio, who represented us as our buying agent in our recent purchase of a weekend home in Northern Dutchess County. I can tell you, without hesitation or exaggeration, that my wife and I would not be homeowners in the area right now if it weren't for Robi's effort, hard work, encouragement, incredible salesmanship and diplomacy in negotiations. My wife and I were originally looking at homes in Columbia County and Connecticut last summer when we decided to consider some of the bordering communities in Northern Dutchess County. We were referred to Robi by one of her former colleagues and we met Robi in Rhinebeck and talked over coffee one Saturday afternoon in August before she took us out to view some properties. Over the course of the next few months, Robi took us out several times tirelessly looking at four to five properties during each trip. Robi helped us ascertain realities about market value, location, quality of construction, electrical, plumbing and heating systems in what was a very fluid market with lots of price disparities and a seemingly oversupply of poor quality assets. We got to know Robi well over the course of these trips and her ability to hone in on exactly what we were looking for and offer guidance on everything from renovation estimates to price negotiations led us to closing on the property of our dreams two weeks ago. Robi is extremely honest and offers the perfect balance of opinion and knowledge, which led us to put our full trust in her ability to represent our best interests during the negotiating and purchasing process. In fact, Robi's diplomatic, yet tough, negotiating positioned us to achieve a sale where there was already an accepted offer from another buyer with contracts in-hand! On top of that, we achieved an excellent price and a more desirable financing structure as a result of her negotiating efforts. Throughout the entire process Robi was always incredibly responsive, professional and always went the extra mile. Robi stopped by our property last Saturday, a week after our closing, with a beautiful impatiens plant to hang on our porch. Given our experience, my wife and I feel that more important than having gained a trusted real estate agent, we have gained a friend."

"My experience with your Agency is one that I will certainly share with family, freiends, neighbors, and acquaintances; the reason being, THE LORIO TEAM.
For me, they have turned a very stressful event into a buying and selling adventure. Robi took the time to carefully explain all the relevant terms and conditions as each related to the buy of my new home and the sell of my present property. She answered and reassured me, as many times as I repeated myself, with the numerous questions I had. Vinny conducted himself better than any stage director taking the many pictures of my home and making the en result look like something out of BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS. He too, took the time, not only to explain the importance of an attractive layout, but moved pieces of furniture around to "set the stage" to reflect such. I always thought tat buying and sellin a property through a real estate agency was a slam dunk, little did I know that it is a work of art and in my case, Robi and Vinny are your artists.
Hi Robi We just wanted to thank you for the magnificent job you did in helping us market and sell our house. Your knowledge of the market allowed us to correctly price our house and make a sale rather quickly, even in this tough market. Your knowledge of the market and professionalism were apparent through every step of the process, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with you. Feel free to share our thoughts with any prospective clients - they will certainly not be disappointed with the work you will do on their behalf. All the best Scott and Maren

A Breath of Fresh Air
My son and his wife decided to buy a house in Dutchess County. They had been looking at condos for a year and a half in the Tri State area but they were unable to find anything that suited their needs. They started looking on-line and had a stroke of good luck when they found you.
All e-mails and phone calls were promptly returned and they were able to discuss with you what they were looking for. You created a list of houses that would best suit their needs and you even picked them up at the train station. By lunch they had the perfect house and put in a bid. The owner lowered his price to negotiate and within 24 hours, he accepted their offer and the process of buying began.
All of their friends told them that buying a house is one of the most stressful things you can ever do, but they didn't use you. You were a breath of fresh air. There was no drama, no "behind the scene" fights. They woke up every day knowing you had their backs at all times.
As you know, this week they expect to close on the house. You found them a house and they will make it a home. I cannot thank you enough and I will recommend you to everyone.
You made the process incredibly easy. Thank you again!
