Client Reviews

Lori Progar is dedicated to ensuring an smooth transaction with a hands-on white glove experience. She is proud of her consistent 5 Star reviews. Here are just a few:

"As soon as I made the decision to move from Libertyville to Arizona, the concerns set in. 'How in the world does one sell a house? Will I have to do hours of statistical research online? How should I choose an agent who I will enjoy working with?”' My worries stopped as soon as I met Lori Progar. Choosing an agent? - there were hundreds out there with online profiles. I decided to interview 1 agent from Coldwell Banker and 1 from Remax. I had seen some positive reviews about Lori online, however intuition played a role in my choice as well. She just seemed like a kind person when looking at her picture! How right this would prove to be.

We hit it off immediately with Lori’s lively and charming personality filling the room. I felt comfortable with her from the first day. And this is exactly the type of rapport I was looking for because even though I knew almost nothing about selling a house, I did know that my agent would have to be someone intelligent, someone I trusted and could rely on in order for this project to be a success My experience with the Remax agent was unfortunately less than positive. Not only did he carry a pompous, condescending attitude about my home, but he ultimately wanted me to list it for $430K. Lori accomplished the sale for $485K. That speaks for itself. No doubt the Remax agent viewed me as someone who knew little about the housing market and this would be a quick sale. Lori was obviously willing to go the extra mile by putting more effort into the project.  

I realized that Lori not only executes her real estate work quickly and efficiently, abiding by the highest standards, but she also rescues people and animals. Humanitarian is the most fitting description for Lori. From our conversations, I learned that she has devoted countless selfless hours assisting people in need as well as caring for, saving and finding homes for dogs. She wisely uses her extensive reservoir of contacts to create a web of charity throughout the area What I appreciate most in Lori is that she is not a stereotype; she’s “real” and she’s cool without being pretentious or trying to play a part When looking for a real estate agent who has your best interests at heart, be sure to seek out the PERSON you want to work with, rather than a company name.

"Lori is the best. She went above & beyond with everything: communication, pictures, attention to details, promptness in corresponding etc. She is very personable and confident in her abilities & rightfully so. She definitely puts the customers needs first. Without any hesitation I recommend Lori." Rhonda H. - Home Seller in Mundelein


"Lori was very straight forward with me on where the market was based on the size of my house and offered very helpful suggestions on how to make it more marketable. I had a renter within 45 days - even with the possible distractions of the Holidays, New Year, and frigid temperatures that would normally prevent people from wanting to move. Lori was confident she'd find me a renter quickly, and she did. I highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent a property. She has the experience and know-how to get it done - and quickly! She'll have my business again when the time comes. Once you talk to her about your situation, I'm sure you'll be happy giving her your business too!" Home Seller/Renter - Vernon Hills


"Lori Progar is Fantastic!!! My dad and I flew in from across the country to view homes. Lori changed her schedule last minute to show us homes after our previous realtor had forgotten we were flying in. 
Lori has immense knowledge of Lake County and a great feel for the real estate market in general. She matched us to three homes which were all great matches. She let us take as much time as we wanted at each showing and was very knowledgeable about each home, its marketability and its potential worth. I recommend Lori to ANYONE who is looking for a realtor in Lake County. Home Buyer in Lake County


"Lori did an excellent job finding me a place to rent. She was very responsive and was always available to meet to show places. She was able to show me places on the fly while we were out looking instead of doing it on another day. She is also an excellent negotiator and was able to drop a $150 a month off my rent which was huge. I recommend Lori to anyone looking for a realtor who will fight for you and what you want." Home Buyer and Home Renter in Vernon Hills

"She's amazing, professional, and willing to meet any needs of mine. Highly recommended!! Call her for any needs anywhere near the Northern suburbs. She will exceed your expectations!"  Home Seller in Libertyville

"Can't say enough good things about Lori. She has gone above and beyond!! My husband had surgery a week before we listed our home and Lori was at the house packing boxes and taking out trash - who does that?? Super sweet and easy to work with, she has had tons of patience with both of us throughout this entire project. (Especially since I ask millions of questions, some of which can be a bit repetitive...)" Tina A. - Home Seller in Vernon Hills


"After the exhaustive research, we selected Lori Progar as our real estate agent to help us sell our home in Vernon Hills. From the beginning, Lori showed herself to be very knowledgeable about market conditions in general and Vernon Hills and the Lake County market. She presented a comprehensive and thorough market analysis, gave us lots of pointers on how to properly present the house to increase its value. Lori's guidance resulted in a very speedy sale after only two days on the market. The house sold for tens of thousands of dollars more than any projections from competing agents. 

Lori was very responsive after signed the contract was signed and quickly addressed all of our questions and concerns. We highly recommend Lori as a real estate agent to anyone interested in selling their home quickly and for maximum value! Thank you, Lori!" Alek N. - Sold a home in Vernon Hills
