Lourie L. Folland
Throughout high school in Visalia and college at Fresno State, Lourie assisted her family with the operation of their real estate investments. This experience gave Lourie the background and knowledge of the industry that have consistently made her a leader in the field.
Lourie has 20 years of sales and marketing management experience in the real estate industry. She is experienced and well versed in new product launches, budget management and contract negotiation. She not only sells real estate, but is also an investor herself.
In order for Lourie to continue to be one of the top Realtors in her field she is heavily involved in local community and civic associations. She has been involved with raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, The Ronald McDonald House, Children's Hospital of the Central Valley, and the La Comida Guild, which raises money for Children's Hospital.
Lourie's direct and to the point dynamic personality coupled with her honesty makes for a perfect local community advocate, realtor, and small business owner. Trust that if you have questions regarding current market conditions and you need no nonsense advise, she is the person to turn to.
Give her a call and let her expertise work for you.
I respond personally to every call and assignment. Guaranteed 24 hour turn around on all assignments and tasks. As an Equator Certified Agent, I have the experience, training, and educational background to fully appreciate the key factors of success in marketing REO´s and doing BPO´s. I have over 10 years of real estate experience. Since the middle of 2008, I have focused on selling distressed properties. I am currently in the process of adding the REO certification with Harris Real Estate University. I understand the business model for distressed properties and know that REO and short sales represent a strong niche for the next few years.
