I believe a career should be something that you’re passionate about. Helping buyers and sellers attain their real estate dreams IS my career. Having grown up in a military household, and between my husband’s and my career, I’ve had the opportunity to live in quite a few locations from Arizona to Germany, so I understand first hand the importance of Home!
As a graduate of the University of Kansas my career began in the financial planning arena where details matter. Buying and selling in today’s real estate market has become an increasingly complicated and ever evolving process. I whole-heartedly believe that my focus and attention to detail is what has allowed me to advocate successfully on behalf of my clients. The icing on the cake is when clients become friends.
I am also passionate about adhering to real estate licensing laws, the Realtor Code of Ethics, the professional standards of my designations, and at the core…the Golden Rule. Having earned my real estate license in 3 states with 3 brokers, I chose to align with Cashman Partners whose goal of serving the client’s needs is at the forefront of their business plan. I am committed to providing the highest level of real estate services by continuing to build on my educational foundation. Recently I earned my GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) designation, adding to my SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) and ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) designations.
When given the opportunity to live anywhere along the west coast, my husband and I chose to return to the Valley of the Sun, where our 2 children were born. Our son is in the golf industry in Palm Beach, Florida and our daughter is a senior at The Ohio State University. In our spare time we can be found enjoying a round of golf and the many great restaurants and entertainment options this beautiful area has to offer!
Lorraine’s Client Reviews
We have moved many times over the years to many different cities for my husband’s job and have NEVER had such a professional, knowledgeable and hard working realtor!! Lorraine quickly understood what we were looking for in a home and did many previews for us since we weren’t always in town to look at properties. She took care of absolutely everything and was on top of the entire process once we signed a purchase agreement. Her expertise was priceless!! I will not hesitate to recommend Lorraine to anyone needing help with their real estate needs!!
Lorraine was excellent throughout this entire process. Being first time home buyers, my husband and I had plenty of questions and she was always available to answer them in addition to providing valuable information that confirmed what she stated. She was a stellar realtor. I cannot praise her enough. She was also fun, down-to-earth, helpful, patient and kind. We could tell that she was serious during negotiations and made sure that our needs were met. -Tiara & Billy
Lorraine spoke with the seller and mortgage company to write an agreement which saved many hassles at closing thanks to her close attention to detail. She stayed on top of the entire process and reduced the stress. -Gayle & John
Lorraine anticipated every need, and it impressed me how quickly she followed up with action. She walked us through the entire buying process. We were completely confident in her skills and abilities to broker the best deal possible. -Mildred & Buddy
We met Lorraine working at a builder’s model while searching for our new home. Lorraine helped with the sale of our existing home which was out of the area and not her responsibility at all. In fact, she did more for us than the agent we hired to sell our home. -Kristy & Adam
Lorraine was there to help us with absolutely everything. When things got difficult, she juggled the impossible to be sure we were taken care of. -Evelyn & Cathy
What a great experience it has been working with Lorraine. From selling our land to closing on a new house, she has been wonderful. If she didn’t know the answer to any question we asked, she was always quick to find out. Lorraine is thorough, knowledgeable, and most importantly, easy to work with. -Susan & Richard
We live in Colorado and were selling my wife’s parents house. Lorraine was very thorough and extremely helpful in helping us determine what was needed to market the home. She coordinated all of the work, making the process easy for us. Lorarine did a wonderful job and we would not hesitate to recommend her. -Melissa & John
This note is to express my deep appreciation for all Lorraine’s work in the sale of our home. She helped us through a difficult time, and I am very grateful we entrusted the job to her. Lorraine’s personal involvement, attention to detail, ability to solve problems, assistance in contacting movers, and willingness to work closely with the trustee took a major load o myself and my family. She did a caring, professional, and outstanding job for us. -Jim
We think Lorraine Funk is outstanding! With a pretty good basis for comparison having worked with realtors in two countries and several states, we found Lorraine to be a cut above. She is intelligent, well informed and measured in her opinions. She was always available to provide sound advice when it was requested, but continued to support us if we didn’t take that advice. Lorraine was upbeat, cheerful and accommodating to our needs. We would certainly work with Lorraine again and recommend her to anyone we know needing a realtor. -Martha & Carl
