Personal warmth, genuineness and positive attitude. Generously shares her expansive network of contacts and relationships which she has developed and nurtured over the years. Highest level integrity, trustworthiness and reliability. Well-respected by all who know her. Moves with lighting speed. I could go on and on about Lori Joyal. I just keep saying to myself “How did I get so lucky?” THANK YOU LORI!!! It is a pleasure and an honor to work with you.

Mary Chevalier; Shelter Harbor, RI

Confidently humble. Laser focused. Results driven. Although Lori’s record of professional accomplishments outshines those of her peers, she is unassuming and respectful. Follow up, follow through, and communication skills are superior; as is her industry knowledge and market guidance. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief business relationship. And after all…isn’t that the hallmark of great realtor... minimum days on market? Signed. Sealed. Delivered.

Ouidad & Peter Wise; Bethel, CT Misquamicut

I want to thank you so much for all of your help and outstanding professionalism in executing the sale of my in-law’s home in Westerly. I was in the military for 34 years and when my wife and I moved into our retirement home it was our 23rd. move. Needless to say, I have dealt with a large number of realtors throughout the nation and none, I mean, absolutely none, come close to holding a candle to you. I am trying to figure out how I can get you licensed here in Florida so that if/when we sell our home here, we can get you to do it!!! As soon as we engaged you, you went full bore in helping us get the house set up for sale. We were doing this long distance and you rapidly identified what needed to be done and helped us get it done. In some cases, after talking to us, you took the bull by the horns and got things accomplished that we could have never gotten done ourselves. You obviously know everyone in that area and were able to direct us to reliable, capable and reasonably priced people who accomplished what we needed accomplished in the minimum amount of time. Working with you was like working with a close member of our family. Again, Lori, Thank You for all you did for us. Should anyone be looking for references for you I would be honored to serve as such. You are THE BEST!!!!

Vice Admiral Richard Herr; Parrish, FL

I'd like to tell you a little bit about Lori Joyal. She was chosen by our very good friend who is a realtor in our state, but we needed a RI agent to help us find our vacation home. Our friend interviewed several potential agents in RI to find an agent with the right chemistry for us. This was important. We're not spoiled, just a little flaky and can be taxing on one's nerves. Well....not me.... just my husband. After meeting 3-4 agents (Lori being the last one) we knew right away she was the one. Our first meeting she was friendly, direct, interested, and we felt she had our best interest in mind. We clicked. Clearly, Lori knows every nook and cranny of RI in every sense, and we felt comfortable with her knowledge and experience. I mean, this is a person you are trusting to guide you with a monumental decision. I also will say this was a year and a half process; patience would have worn thin with many agents, but we never felt rushed. Several times our needs and budget changed, but Lori understood and always made us feel she was in our corner. I will also say we are just average people with an average budget, but she made us feel we were just as important as someone with a multi-million dollar budget. The process was not stressful...she made it fun and exciting....and that's the truth. We just closed on our vacation home, and we're simply tickled and truly thankful. Lori has an honest, genuine soul, a lovely sense of humor, and just an overall good sport. Why is that important? It just is.

Suzanne & Alan; South Kingstown, RI

Lori Joyal has my highest recommendation to become your real estate agent. Her display of professionalism and attention to detail exceeded all expectations. Lori’s incredible knowledge of the local real estate market enabled us to sell our property at a very favorable price. Lori’s expertise goes beyond just the selling of the property. Even after the P&S was signed, Lori’s talents were a key ingredient in bringing about the closing. Lori assisted in arranging for work to be done at the house to have it ready for closing. She was valuable when working with the Mortgage Company and local officials to insure the closing would take place. Lori’s greatest talent was her people skills. The selling of the property involved many people. Lori was always on top of matters, promptly returned calls and she was able to keep everyone involved. It was Lori’s dedication to detail and her caring earning her my highest praise and thanks.

Maryanne Adams; Quonnie, RI

We had heard good things about Lori Joyal and when we decided to sell our home in Westerly, we did some online research and learned that she was the top agent in all of Rhode Island -- so we decided, this is the person we want working with us. We listed the house with Lori and she was the consummate professional every step of the way. She personally helped stage the house for the professional photographer she brought in (who took fabulous photos), was present for every showing, and provided immediate feedback after every showing. She advertised the house in many publications and produced a beautiful glossy color oversize flyer with photos and info on the property. She responded immediately to every inquiry and kept us well informed throughout the entire process. Overall, we were very pleased with her and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a pro to market their property."

Carol Mele Westerly RI

Lori is the consummate professional. She never gives up marketing, bringing buyers, and working personally to sell a home. When the home didn’t sell originally, she said to take our time and rethink what we really wanted to do. NO pressure after she had put all the work into producing a beautiful mailing. We relisted it with Lori —we would never work with anyone else—and she found a buyer. What’s the downside? We will miss our new found friend and confidant. She is the ONLY person to list your house with. When she says she will sell it, she means it!

Kallie Jurgens

"Working with" is a misnomer when it comes to selling your home with Lori's assistance. The guidance, care and expertise that she provides is, well truly special. We just sold our home, and from the first moment we met Lori she was always there for us. She soothed anxiety, was amazingly supportive and kept us level in what can be a turbulent process. She became "family", and a cherished member. For peace of mind, the ultimate in integrity, and savvy wisdom, there is only one, and that is Lori Joyal.

Joseph and Susan, Charlestown & NH

Lori is truly a special and unique agent! She proved to be a trusted and knowledgeable resource during our search for a beach front property, delivering the highest level of service and dedication. Hardworking, honest, and eminently experienced in Rhode Island real estate and the local Westerly marketplace, it is no wonder that Lori continues to achieve success.

Catherine & Dave, Hebron CT Misquamicut

Simply the best! A few months ago we decided to sell our home in Charlestown, RI. After looking at several agents' online profiles, it became obvious that we need to look no further than Lori. Lori is a true professional, dedicated to RE and her clients. Not only did Lori list our home, she also brought us the buyer and represented us in the purchase of our new home. She handled all the details of each transaction, and made us feel like we were her only clients. She was responsive to our emails, calls and texts - returning each promptly. Whether a $300,000 or $3,000,000 transaction, Lori treats each and every client with respect and appreciation. We highly recommend Lori Joyal - it's no wonder she's #1 in her market!

Elaine & Gary; Hingham, MA Shelter Harbor

My most sincere thank you for your outstanding, courteous, professional business skills in listing - advertising - marketing - selling my Charlestown home in such a short period of time. I was completely impressed from our initial meeting to closing with your "energy" and vast knowledge of the current real estate market along with your suggested pricing which proved to be very accurate. From the beginning, you immediately demonstrated a strong energy level with showing after showing and you being there for each and every one and always immediately calling to advise me of what took place. As you know I have been in the residential, commercial, industrial building business as a hands on General Contractor in both Connecticut and RI for 40+ years so I have had my share of experiences with numerous brokers and agents. I can honestly say your one of the best I have ever worked with. I look forward to working with you in the near future in selling my other homes in Charlestown. I have recommended you to neighbors and association members. Good luck in everything you do.

Dante Pasqualoni; Charlestown Beach, RI

Lori is the best real estate professional we have ever worked with. She is prompt, pro-active and conscientious, and her knowledge of her sales area is incredible. We would use Lori again in a heart-beat.

Jeff Matthews Central Beach Quonochontaug

Hi Lori, Now that the dust has settled, I can fully appreciate the fact that you were the glue that held everything together, and your leadership skill was the key to arriving at a successful conclusion so smoothly. It has truly been a pleasure to work with you. You were so very well prepared, so responsive, and so reliable, that we could count on you without ever having a doubt in our mind. You were perfect, and we would be pleased to share our experience with your clients. Thank you once again for all you have done for us.

Ed & Sue; FL, Shelter Harbor

Lori Joyal is an incredible real estate agent and an even better person. A family member recommended Lori to us as an agent that is professional and can get top dollar for our home. We asked for the names of 3 agents and we planned on interviewing all before deciding on the right fit for us. Our family member said, you don’t need 3 names; you only need 1, Lori Joyal. She couldn’t have been more correct. My wife and I were a little uneasy about putting our house on the market. It was our first home that we built and started a family in. Lori understood that and had just the right way of working with us to not make us feel like there was any pressure on us to sell. Lori made my wife and I feel like she cared much more about our personal situation turning out all right and if that meant we sold our house, great. However, if we ever felt any reservation to sell, she was understanding of that as well. Lori is a top-notch communicator. She is incredibly responsive. If you have a question, whether it be by phone, email or the preferred text, she gets right back to you. She loves what she does and that comes through in every conversation. Lori is passionate about her customers getting the right fit for them. Lori helped us sell our house at our desired price point. In buying our new home, Lori helped us out any way she could, answering all our questions and alleviating any anxiety we encountered. She always had such a great outlook and attitude that it was contagious. It was because of her spirit that we had faith all would work out in our favor. Lori epitomizes professionalism, integrity, responsiveness, know-how, and she has a tremendous way about her. My wife and I see Lori as a part of the family. It is without any reservations that I would recommend Lori Joyal to anyone looking to sell/buy a home. Thank You Lori!

Amanda & Brendan Murphy

This is an unsolicited recommendation for Lori Joyal, who has sold one property to us and two properties for us. Lori Joyal is one of the most competent people we have ever met. She is intelligent, knowledgeable, diligent, conscientious, honest, and reliable. She promptly responds to emails and phone calls. These traits have earned Lori the lion's share of the upscale regional real estate market, such as our former large, waterfront home. But she also well-represented us in selling a second, lower end of the market house - at the most advantageous price, terms, and closing conditions. Lori has the best feel for the market in our area. She thoroughly researched comparable properties for both our houses, to provide us the most realistic expectations. And Lori does the most thorough and energetic marketing of any area realtor. After contracting the sales agreements, Lori stayed just as committed to completing the sales. She kept us informed of every development, was sensitive to personal issues, resolved potential problems, and tactfully nudged all involved to assure a smooth closing. My wife and I were delighted with Lori Joyal's representation of our interests. We enthusiastically recommend her to all.

Philo Willetts, M.D. & Veronica Willetts; Avondale, RI

I have worked with many realtors in many different markets over the years. I would, without question, rank Lori at the top of the list. She was the most responsive, and the best at communicating status and results. In addition she has built a network of resources that both sellers and buyers can take advantage of as they address all of the various tasks that may be required in order to efficiently sell or buy a home. Lori makes herself available at any time of any day during the process, and will do anything that is reasonably ask of her. She leaves no stone unturned in the marketing process so that your property receives maximum exposure if you are a seller. Best of all, she does it all with a smile and positive attitude that is infectious! I recommend her highly!

Steve Rowley; Watch Hill, RI

My wife and I worked with Lori to sell our family home and, from beginning to end, she managed the process with a perfect combination of professional skill and personal touch. Given the state of the market and uniqueness of our property, this was not the easiest of sales but Lori brought to bear three elements fundamental to most successful business endeavors: knowledge, temperament, and time. While we have bought and sold a number of homes over the years, each new transaction presents its own unique set of challenges – and this one had plenty including a little hurricane named Sandy arriving 2 days before closing. Lori helped us overcome every obstacle that came our way and made sure we still kept most of our sanity - without her as our agent we would have thrown in the towel long before closing. Sun-Tzu, the ancient military strategist and philosopher, said, "in the midst of chaos there is also opportunity" – and Lori can uncover opportunity better than any real estate agent we have ever met. Beyond all her diligence and the hard work done on our behalf, we appreciate Lori for the kind person and warm soul she is and felt lucky to have her supportive friendship throughout the process. It is very simple – we could not recommend anyone more highly than we do Lori.

Paul & Sally Kaplan; Lexington, MA

Lori's outstanding marketing skills combined with a knowledge of the market that insures we were priced to sell made working with her an absolute pleasure. I can clearly see why she is one of the very few realtors in the entire northeast that is responsible for over $100mm in sales in the past two years. She has my unqualified endorsement as I am a very satisfied buyer as well as seller.

Bob Kaufman, Misquamicut

Lori’s vision and guidance helped us identify the perfect location to build our summer home. Always going above and beyond, she put us contact with the right builder making this project truly turnkey. When it comes to realtors, she is “Best in Class”. If you’re serious about building, buying or selling in Rhode Island, do yourself the favor of calling Lori Joyal.

Rob & Dorothy Bouvier; West Hartford, CT Weekapaug

Lori is truly a special and unique agent! She proved to be a trusted and knowledgeable resource during our search for a beachfront property, delivering the highest level of service and dedication. Hardworking, honest, and eminently experienced in Rhode Island real estate and the local Westerly marketplace, it is no wonder that Lori continues to achieve success.

Catherine & Dave; Hebron, CT

Working with Lori was like finding the perfect combination of dedicated, responsive and knowledgeable professional and close friend. Lori takes her business and her service to her clients to the next level – she thinks outside the box and goes above and beyond in every instance. After we bought our house, Lori remained a key source of information and helped us move forward to become educated homeowners – she was with us every step of the way and stayed consistently involved even after the closing. She is like a part of our family now – she’s truly incredible!

Lauren Corrinett, Watch Hill

We had the privilege of working with Lori Joyal to sell our house at 33 Watch Hill Road. The house had been on and off the market for many years with multiple sales effort failures. Lori stuck with it. She never gave up and always communicated honest feedback from potential sellers. When we finally got the house under contract, Lori was the consummate professional in attending to all the necessary details and ensuring that the closing process stayed on track. Lori has been a delight to work with and we recommend her highly to anyone wishing to buy or sell a house. Many, many thanks for being great to work with!

Stephen & Kathi Page; Dallas, TX

My home was on the market for almost four years... Lori was my agent the last year of the listing. As one can imagine, I was tired when she came on board. Lori's energy, professionalism, and passion were what inspired me to "keep going and keep the faith." Lori is a true professional in every sense of the word. I was emotionally involved with this home and her respect for the history and experiences my family shared, was so encouraging. When one of the buyers was unable to follow through with their commitment, Lori was right on it and turned the listing around immediately. She took over where the buyer's agent failed. Her business acumen, which is most important, her sense of what her particular client needs, her attention to detail, and her compassion are truly above and beyond. Lori is "an agent's agent" so to speak. Her respect by her peers is second to none and I heard that from so many agents. Lori doesn't care if a listing is 100K or 10 million dollars. From what I lived through with Lori, her dedication to her clients are equal. Lori's attention to every detail of my listing, from the photos (Lori personally staged the house and hired a professional photographer) to her kind and personal support through a VERY tough market. God Bless you Lori with much, much gratitude.

Julia Joslin; Westerly, RI

Just a short note to say "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" for all your hard work, persistence, professionalism, and genuine concern over all these months and years. It has been a long ride, with many ups and downs but the end result is not just the final sale of our property, but more importantly, a gratitude for the fact you never gave up and kept searching for a final resolution. The sale means a lot to us obviously, but your friendship is an even more lasting product of this process! When all settles down, we will all get together and celebrate this "long and winding road!"

George Grande; Hamden, CT

My husband and I had dreamed of owning a beach house for years. We met Lori after a recommendation from an acquaintance. Prior to meeting Lori, we had tried to go it alone for some time. We knew we wanted to be on the RI shore and looked around a bit ourselves with little luck. After meeting with Lori, she got to know us and our preferences very quickly. She was patient and so receptive. I would swear she knew what we wanted almost better than we did! Buying land to build is a long process that Lori guided us through and was available throughout the whole process. She has so much knowledge, professionalism and expertise. She is 100% behind her clients. I would certainly recommend Lori to anyone looking for a home.

Dorothy; West Hartford, CT, Weekapaug

Lori, our Lila Delman agent, displayed high levels of energy, devotion, and professionalism throughout the listing and sales process. In a demanding Watch Hill market our house sold in eight months, with a closing perfectly timed for the move to our new home. We were very happy with the whole experience.

Bill & Marilyn; Westerly, RI Watch Hill

My condo was a challenge in a tough market and I had tried several brokers before I found Lori. She got right to work, used her database for direct mail and her many contacts to generate more showings than I had gotten in the previous two years. The property sold within a couple of months and I got the price I was looking for. Then Lori guided me through the closing process without hitch. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Smart, aggressive but so easy to work with—a true professional.

Bill Brown, Watch Hill

We purchased a home in the Quonnie area with the fine help of Lori Joyal. There is no reason to buy and sell through anyone else. Lori's professionalism, knowledge and expertise of the market and selling area is so very valuable. She found us a house that we can call a home. Thanks for everything!

AnnMarie; Charlestown, RI Quonnie

Completely amazing professionalism and results. I could not recommend Lori Joyal more highly. Lila Delman is lucky to have her!

Rob Ewert, Watch Hill

We have had the pleasure of working with Lori over the last five years acquiring and selling several properties in Quonnochontaug, RI . Lori presents a unique professional approach to her work, providing the buyer with a complete understanding of the property and coastal community environment. There is no detail too great or small, she is always one step ahead making sure of a smooth process to ensure a successful outcome. We highly recommend her for a real estate agent and would without question use her in the future.

Rich & Denise Mulcahy; Quonnie, Charlestown, RI

Lori Joyal is a real estate sales person extraordinaire! She didn't just sell our house (and quickly), she went above and beyond: She kept us informed of every single showing she had, she gave us helpful feedback on a regular basis, she discussed inexpensive changes we could make to help to sell the house and she provided the people to get the job done! Lori responded to every question and problem we had, no matter how trivial. She was our real estate agent/problem-solver/white knight/trusted confidant. We highly recommend her!

Jack & Karen Couture; Stamford, CT Quonnie

I can't thank you enough for the exceptional service you provided to me over the past few years as I searched for my dream beach home. You were the consummate professional and provided sage advice throughout this entire process. You were available to me at every step of the process and answered each and every one of my questions in a prompt and professional manner. Your keen insight into the local market was only surpassed by your dedication and tireless efforts to find me the perfect house at the appropriate price. In short, you love what you do and it shows. I would recommend you to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling in South County, RI. Thank you ever so much.

Daniel A. Seymour; White Plains, NY

My wife and I have worked with Lori Joyal for several years in our pursuit of the perfect beach home to spend our summers with our family. We were not familiar with Rhode Island but perceived it to be a beautiful ocean community. Lori worked diligently to help us. She was knowledgeable, responsive, and always available and most importantly, truthful. We never felt uncomfortable about asking any question and if she didn't know the answer, she would get it promptly. We asked for her help when we finally made the decision to concentrate on Newport, after looking in Watch Hill and the Stonington, CT area and she rose to the challenge. The result was the successful purchase our dream home. I would recommend, without hesitation, Lori to any buyer or seller regardless of house value or location, and would most certainly use her myself in any future transactions.

Anthony W. Ruggiero Newport

Just want to add to the glowing list of testimonials! In just over six months, you were able to successfully bring to harmonious fruition a real estate process on a problematic property in Watch Hill, Rhode Island During this time of our interactions, I have found that you certainly are not the conventional real estate agent; you conduct a top notch real estate practice with forthright dedication. Your standards of practice and professionalism are exemplary. Your unique position is to negotiate a win-win transaction for all involved. It has been a sincere pleasure to work with you, and I would highly recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate in Rhode Island, or just interested in having an enlightened discussion with the most savvy, optimistic, award winning real estate professional I have encountered.

Joann Turo; Watch Hill, RI

I would highly recommend Lori Joyal as a real estate agent. She has her pulse on the market and is great at the negotiating process. She is honest, energetic, optimistic and caring. Her personal attention to detail is top notch. She was able to get me a report on the condition of our cottage after the hurricane and helped line up a contractor for repairs. Lori responded to phone calls, texts, and emails promptly. She is compassionate and helpful with the emotional decisions that go with selling a home. I cannot imagine going through this process without her help.

Sue Brandt; Misquamicut, RI

Lori has helped us: 1) buy our first house 2) Sell our first house when we were able to 3) find and buy our dream home. We have worked together in all types of markets over the last few years. Every step of the way, she helped us make good, informed decisions. She is deeply involved in the local market, actively helping buyers and sellers throughout the area. Her high level of activity keeps her directly in touch with the market, while she also keeps perspective on what is going on nationwide. She is smart, she is very connected to the market, and she has the highest level of integrity. That is why I have trusted her with the three largest financial decisions I have made in my life. Also, she responds to emails and phone calls faster than anyone I have ever met!

Brian & Kim Higgins; Westport, CT Quonnie

We came to Lori Joyal through the many great testimonials of others. We were not disappointed because Lori lived up to them. We needed someone that was proactive, understood our needs, and was honest and direct about all aspects of a real estate transaction, and that's exactly what Lori delivered throughout the entire process. When you work with Lori, in whatever capacity you agree to, she'll represent you the way she is supposed to. I've spent many years as a senior executive and partner in marketing agencies. I know what great client service is, and Lori delivers every time.

Terry & Joe Cordo; Sudbury, MA

To anyone buying or selling real estate, Lori Joyal should be your agent! Our family worked with her over a three year period to sell our condominium in Weekapaug. Why three years you might ask? Because of the nature of our situation of owning a fifty year old property assessed at over a million dollars on a single lot divided into two condominiums owned by two separate sets of related family groups; but enough of our problems. After explaining our dilemma to Lori, she took the initiative to research the situation in order to try and find any and all possible solutions to ease the selling of our condominium to a potential buyer. After the first selling season and showing the property to over 20 potential buyers, it became evident that not many people were willing to purchase real estate tied up with these constraints. This did not stop Lori and we signed up with her for another selling season. Unfortunately the economy tanked in 2008 and her mission became more difficult. We reviewed our options that she recommended and followed her advice. After showing the condominium again that selling season, the same result and same concerns became evident again over time. We are sure this would have put most agents in a very reluctant frame of mind to continue; but not Lori, she continued to be aggressive, knowledgeable, available, communicative and enthusiastic in working with us to sell our property!!! Come season three, we were able to find the right buyer who completely understood the situation and did not have a problem buying into our property. This after Loris professionalism in reviewing all necessary documents with them and explaining the WHYS of our family relationships. If you are looking for a diligent real estate agent who can handle a totally abnormal real estate sale with enthusiasm, availability and concern, may we recommend Lori Joyal at Lila Delman Real Estate. Thanks again Lori for being there for us!

The Lindquist Family; Drums, PA Weekapaug

This is so long overdue. We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated all of your hard work in finding the perfect beach house for our family. Our purchase turned into a unique situation and your work ethic, follow-through, and knowledge were outstanding. The biggest compliment we can give you is that we felt that you had no other clients and you only worked for us. So thank you for that and for such a wonderful experience. We look forward to seeing you and your family around town.

Gary, Judy, Andrew, & Sarah; Avon, CT

Thanks to Lori Joyal, we found our dream home in Quonnie. Lori always seems to be one step ahead of everyone else in the business, offering information and insight in the most professional way. She worked hard on our behalf to make sure we did not have to compromise and, most importantly, she has the highest standards of ethics and honesty. Being an out-of-state family purchasing a vacation home in Quonnie was not stressful due to Loris constant vigilance on our behalf and every trip was managed to the minute. Somehow Lori even managed to incorporate fun and relaxation into our house hunting trips.. our children even love her! Thanks to Lori we can look forward to many wonderful summers on the beaches of Rhode Island.

Darrah & Scott Deo; Tewksbury, NJ

We recently closed on a home in Westerly. It was the one house on the one street that we fell in love with, and we cannot say enough about Lori and her role in helping us make this dream come true. She is a true professional in how she balances the interests of both buyer and seller. Lori was quick to respond to our phone calls and emails and always kept us apprised of how things were progressing. As out of state residents, Lori was instrumental in helping us get the necessary work done to meet our closing date and was able to provide us with practical advice and direction throughout the process. Having worked with Lori over the past several months we are proud to consider her our friend. We cannot say enough about her positive attitude and dedication, and recommend Lori without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Hugh & Emily Morgan; Rye, NY Shelter Harbor

Lori Joyal epitomizes the highest quality of real estate service with her outstanding professionalism, patience and persistence. Her upbeat outlook was encouraging during a difficult market and she managed the delicate balancing act of representing both seller and buyer with tact and diplomacy. As a non-resident owner I had to lean on Lori for a lot of help, which she cheerfully provided. Her pricing advice was sound and I was glad that I continued to list with her even though it took three years for my home to sell. Lori is passionate about her profession and totally devoted to her clients; I would recommend her to anyone seeking the best there is. Lucky for me that I found her!

Sara Daniel; Hilton Head Island, SC Shelter Harbor

We want to express our SINCERE gratitude for guiding us through our home purchase in Misquamicut. From the first time we met when we were looking to rent a home to the day we closed, your professionalism, patience, accessibility and diligence was impressive to say the least. For many homebuyers, us included, looking for a home and then finally taking the plunge and buying is as stressful as going in for surgery, but you made the process very easy. Throughout this home buying process we have discussed with many of our friends and co-workers how your efforts made this purchase very pleasant. We cannot thank you enough.

Matt & Nancy Annitto; Glastonbury, CT Misquamicut

I wanted to hand write you a thank you card but I could not find one big enough. Your dedication and generosity is beyond words. When I first picked a realtor, I made a very bad choice but changing to you was the best thing I could have done. You put everything into your work. You do whatever it takes for your clients (including checking cesspools in a full length fur coat)! Robin and I cannot thank you enough for all the time and care you have shown us. On a personal note, I feel that we have become friends. Your frank and open manner is endearing and welcome. There are not many people you can trust and I felt a special bond the first time I met you. You always had time for me and my questions. I do not know what else to say than that YOU ARE THE BEST and anyone would be a fool not to have you as their agent. I just wish I had signed with your earlier. Please call me if you ever need me. Sincere best wishes and I hope we keep in touch.

Janice & Robin Bashaw; Kensington, CT

I wanted to sell my house in Misquamicut Beach and was given the name Lori Joyal by a mutual friend. From the moment I met Lori I was so impressed with her knowledge and her high energy. I was amazed at the number of showings that I had so quickly and all the feedback I would get from her. Within a few hours of a showing she was either on the phone with me or I would get an update via e-mail. Lori is an asset to her profession and I would never be afraid to give her name to anyone looking to sell their home. She is a gem. During this tough economy she did find a buyer for my home, if I may add in January even after so much snow. It was a pleasure and a joy having Lori working for me. Great Job.

Jeanne Morrell; Sturbridge, MA Misquamicut

We recommend Lori Joyal without reservation. You simply could not find a better real estate agent! First, Lori helped us purchase a second home in Westerly. Then, she helped my sister find her home in Westerly, too. We have spent a lot of time with Lori over the past few years and thoroughly enjoy working with her. Lori is a true professional and a wonderful person. When you work with Lori, she makes herself available 24/7 and will do whatever she possibly can to help you find your house. She undoubtedly knows the real estate market and has recommendations and contacts for any experts, lawyers, engineers, contractors, etc. that you may need. Her reputation is outstanding and she is highly respected in the community. Lori is an expert negotiator and able to reach the best deal for her clients. She is honest and forthright and willing to go far above and beyond what any other realtor would do for their clients. Her dedication and willingness to help continue well after the closing date. Lori's integrity, poise and grace, make her a pleasure to work with professionally and a blessing to know personally.

Marc & Kristen; Pelham Manor, NY Watch Hill

My wife and I recently closed on a home in Westerly. We were fortunate to have selected Lori to represent us. We looked at many homes over the past few months and it would have proven frustrating if not for Lori's stewardship. She is a true professional in every sense but more important a genuinely nice person. Her objective was simple: find us the right house; which she did. We simply love our new home and I did not believe spending money could be so enjoyable! Lori you are the best!

Lori Joyal did the impossible for us in the purchase of our summer home in Charlestown, she removed the anxiety that always accompanies buying a home. There are not enough superlatives I could use when describing Lori's ability as a real estate broker. She is truly remarkable at what she does. Beyond her professionalism, round the clock availability, depth of knowledge, poise and thoroughly engaging personality, Lori possesses a level of integrity that removes all your doubts when you are making a real estate purchase. When you are working with Lori you are confident that you are working with someone who has your best interest at heart, and not someone just looking to make a commission. No one will work harder for you, and will have the ability to make a deal happen than Lori Joyal. I'm only sorry that this will probably be the only business involvement we have together, as I do not buy and sell houses frequently. However, my family and I are more than pleased that she and her family are now our neighbors and friends.

I wanted to drop you a short note to Thank You for all of your help over the course of the past few months. I have to confess that Nicole and I never really thought we would be able to purchase a home in Quonnie, but everything you did to help us made it possible. Obviously, our experience working with someone we consider a close family friend was nothing short of outstanding. The level of service and support did not stop the day we settled on a price, but continued at a very high level up to, and including the closing and beyond. Whether it was finding a great mortgage provider who secured an unbelievable rate, or identifying Surveyors to help with the Elevation Certificate... you were there to help. We can’t thank you enough.

We recently bought a permanent beach home in Quonnie which was listed by Lori Joyal. Lori was delightful to work with. It was a very fast transaction and closing, so things had to move smoothly and they did. Within 3 days, all inspections, surveys, title, etc were in progress with professionals recommended to us by Lori. We were very pleased with her referrals and also her always quick responses to any and all questions. She also handled some negotiation issues that could have been a problem, but were not due to immediate action on her part. We are pleased that we worked with Lori and pleased to call her a new neighbor and friend.

Kris and I have been working with Lori for over two years, and I always knew she was the lady to sell our home. She was honest from the very beginning, and was deeply committed to us 24/7. She was always prompt when returning calls, and gave us 100% personalization. Although we sold our home during a volatile time in real estate history, her devotion was unwavering, and we never once doubted that she would eventually sell our home. She is the best, and we will truly miss her. She is a classy, reliable and hardworking realtor. We have worked with other realtors in the past, and she is second to none. I can't say enough about her. She was always on the level with us, and she gave us advice whether it was what we wanted to hear or not. I always trusted her, and in today's world, that is not commonplace. I recommend her any day, I wish I could take her across state lines, to find my new home.

My wife and I purchased a house in Watch Hill through Lori in 2009. The entire process of looking at listings, visiting properties, negotiating with the seller’s agent was all handled in a most timely and efficient manner. The use of technology for transmitting listing sheets, digital photos, and e-mail correspondence was perfect. A key ingredient in any real estate transaction is time. Lori was fast when she needed to be and, during negotiations, slow and deliberate to get the best outcome. Lori knows the local market, lives and breathes it, and this again is critical in finding the right property for the right price. Lori did a perfect job in all respects. Her personality and warmth made working with her a pleasure. We would use her again without hesitation.

My family began looking at property in Charlestown, RI a couple of years ago. Some friends of ours recommended a local real estate agent, so we contacted them, and looked at a few homes. We were amazed at the lack of attention to detail and follow up. So from the locally posted real estate signs, we decided to contact Lori Joyal from Lila Delman. What a Godsend! In our first meeting with Lori, she displayed the exuberance and professionalism that we expected from a real estate agent, but she went beyond that. Lori made us feel like she was working with our best interests in mind, not just trying to sell us a house, but educating us as to the most favorable value. She provided us with all the real "pluses and minuses" to all the properties we looked at. Her energy and her follow-up skills are extraordinary, and her attention to detail is flawless. We even got to the point where our children were asking, "when can we go see Mrs. Joyal again?" as each time we saw Lori to view a property, she had brought the kids something to play with and keep them occupied while we looked at the home or lot. Recently, Lori helped us negotiate a building lot in Quonnie, and she assisted us with the entire transaction, from price negotiation, permit verification, architect contacts, to closing. Thanks Lori, for everything!! If you are thinking of purchasing a home in Southeast RI, there is only one real estate agent to contact... Lori Joyal at Lila Delman.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you "again." This is the second property you have listed and sold for me in a very short period of time. As in the last property I thank you again for being so professionally through with every detail starting at the beginning when you first visited the property, recommended what should be done, revisited after your recommendations were completed followed by your staging the property for maximum appeal to interested parties. Your marketing program combined with your tireless nonstop high energy doing house showings was "outstanding" and sincerely appreciated in attracting and educating buyers shopping this price range and location.

When we started looking for a house in Weekapaug, people were still driving Datsuns! We knew where we wanted to be, but it was difficult to get our classic beach house in an area without much inventory. We finally started looking with a new agent, Lori Joyal, in Spring of 2009. Our family was opening our beach box on Fenway Beach August 1st of the same year! We attribute that success fully to Lori’s persistence, willingness to test a market and good eye for discovering what can be done with a property, rather than simply accepting what it is. She gets to know her client and develops a partner strategy so there is no wasted time. Her level of attention is unsurpassed. Most importantly, however, is that Lori makes the process fun! It’s a pleasure to hear from her in the constant discussions at purchase time. And she follows up after the sale with a high level of attention on whatever the new home owner needs assistance with. We cannot say enough about working with Lori. It is no wonder why she is so successful in her market!

Neil Budnick & Anita Cobb; New Canaan, CT Weekapaug

We worked with Lori to find a summer cottage on the water in South County Rhode Island. She did a fantastic job showing us the area, helping us understand what represented good value, and even looking after our young daughters so that we could look around properly. She was also invaluable as a source of information about the area and by putting us in touch with local contractors. Quite simply, I don't think we could have managed to get through this process without her help.

I want to take this time to thank Lila Delman Real Estate for continued great service. I just completed a home purchase and worked with Lori Joyal. I have been involved in several real estate transactions in the past with other real estate companies. This was my third transaction with Lori Joyal and I have never seen such professionalism in a company and an individual. Lori's experience, coupled with her knowledge of the industry allows her to anticipate what is needed to complete a deal without complication. Prior to closing there are daily phone calls from her letting me know where we are, or giving me reminders of what I need to do. She works the process tirelessly to see a smooth transaction. Lila Delman and specifically Lori Joyal will always get my business and will always be my choice for referrals when I'm asked. Thank you so much for what you do and how you do it.

Jon P. McKiernan; Middletown, CT

In our search for oceanfront property, we have left a wake of realtors up and down the east coast. We have to say Lori stood out as a true professional and the best realtor that we encountered in our search. From day one, she was there when we needed her. Whenever we called with a question or needed advice, her response was immediate and lightning fast. We joked about how we would miss our daily phone calls once we closed. But the service does not stop after closing. She has a great list of service professionals that she makes available for any work to be done. It was a pleasure working with her and we now consider her not just an agent but a friend.

Having recently closed on a house that my husband and I were selling in Matunuck Beach, I wanted to take a few moments to briefly comment on our experience working with Lori Joyal. We actually established a relationship with Lori approximately four years ago, when contemplating putting our home on the market. Although we did not list our home at that time, we maintained contact with Lori, and knew when it was time to sell, she would be our realtor of choice. Over the years, we found Lori to be a delight to work with. She is a highly competent and professional realtor, who has mastered the ability to effectively communicate and collaborate with all parties involved in a real estate transaction. Lori readily earned our respect and trust, and there was never any doubt that she was working in our best interest. Her knowledge of properties in our area enabled her to provide us with helpful advice and direction to facilitate the sale. Perhaps one of Lori's most admirable traits is the value she places on being accessible to clients. She responded promptly to phone calls or emails, and always kept us up-to-date on everything that was happening. Consequently, Lori became not only a trusted advisor, but also a friend. Given her personalized style, it is easy to feel as if you have known Lori all of your life! She approaches her job with self-assuredness, enthusiasm and optimism, all of which contribute to her success. Both my husband and I feel fortunate to have met and worked with Lori, and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.

Because of the extraordinary competence and phenomenal helpfulness and accessibility of Lori Joyal, we were able to buy a great beach house. We could not have had a better experience. Lori quickly understood our particular needs and came up with a superb home for us. She has a thorough knowledge of the real estate market she serves and a nuanced understanding of values. Throughout the entire process of buying the house she was always immediately available and very effectively responsive to any queries or requests we had. Since we have closed on the house she has continued to be remarkably helpful with her extensive list of service people, and with helping us get settled. She is a delightful person and has our unqualified endorsement as a realtor.

Eileen & Jim Flint; Watertown, CT Watch Hill

We are most appreciative for Lori's professionalism. Lori recently assisted us in finding and buying our beach house. She possesses superior communication skills and attention to detail. Her ability to go the extra mile appears effortless in every circumstance. What impressed us the most about Lori was her ability to understand our needs and criteria for a house and produce a short list of houses that matched them almost perfectly. Her experience and knowledge of the market/inventories/value made our buying process extremely efficient. Lori was extremely helpful throughout the process-from bidding to closing. Her network of local resources proved to be knowledgeable and very professional. We would recommend Lori on any real estate transaction.

Ricardo & Courtenay Berckemeyer; Simsbury, CT Quonnie

Having Lori as my agent in the sale of my property was the best decision I have ever made. She worked as hard as I have ever seen someone work to sell a property. She was always on top of everything associated with the property. When we got to the end of the process, she was on top of all aspects of the sale. The process took a detour and she jumped in with both feet and kept moving the effort forward with dogged determination. The communications portion of the sale was outstanding, she would respond to questions immediately and on the flip side she would call to inform me of the progress. She takes pride in her abilities to act as your agent, and for this I will be ever grateful. If anyone is considering Lori as their agent, for the sale or purchase of real estate, you would be a complete fool to NOT have Lori represent you. She will give her all for you in your efforts to acquire or sell properties. Thanks Lori.

Richard; Westerly, RI Misquamicut

A thousand thank yous is not enough to express our gratitude towards you and all that you've done to assist us in buying our beach house. We've wanted something near the ocean for years and now our dream came true. Yes, we did have a few nightmares along the way, but that just makes today all the more sweeter. Some people go the extra mile, but you went around the world and back helping us. Thank you for everything from the bottom of our hearts.

Joan & Brian Treiber; Suffield, CT Misquamicut

Just a quick note to express our thanks to you for helping us find the perfect property for our needs in Charlestown, RI. A year after just missing out on a very attractive lot, you kept in mind what we were looking for and notified me the day the listing was issued for the "right" property. After our offer was accepted, you recommended an excellent attorney who was able to work out revisions to the language of some odd easements, got the inspection done on a timely basis and even recommended a "Mr. Fix It" to quote on some needed repairs. Our sincere thanks for making this a great experience!

Denis Gagnon; Wilbraham, MA Quonnie

Lori Joyal is a superb real estate agent. She knows the properties in her region; she knows the people; and she knows how to get things done. She was able to put us in touch with highly qualified contractors and vendors to assist us in our decision-making. She is extremely responsive to her clients'''' needs and always promptly returns telephone calls and e-mails. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

James Cowdery; Hartford, CT Weekapaug

For the last 10 years, my family and I have spent a summer holiday in Rhode Island. Spending time in the Watch Hill/Westerly area, we were always hopeful that one day we'd be able to find a perfect little place to spend the summer. Walking through downtown Watch Hill last summer we stepped into the Lila Delman office to see what might be available. We met Lori and Bob that day while looking at various pieces. We expressed to them what we were looking for and our price bracket. We spent the next few days that we were in the area checking out some properties but none of them seemed to fit. When we left Rhode Island to return to our CT home we asked to be kept in mind if anything fitting our description came on. Each year when we'd spoken with a broker once we'd left we'd never heard from them again. This experience however was very different. Lori was enormously active in trying to find us the dream beach home we'd always wanted, and although we weren't living locally, our willingness to take the ride up to look at places combine with her dedication and persistence, we were able to find exactly what we were looking for. The 495 Atlantic Ave. place is more than we could have possibly hoped for and I am certain that had we not worked with Lori and Lila Delman we would not have been so lucky in finding what we wanted for the price we were hoping to pay. Thank you for the wonderful experience and the beautiful home that you helped us find.

Lynne Kaesmann; Westerly, RI Misquamicut

We were very pleased to have worked with Lori for the sale of 433 Atlantic Avenue, Misquamicut, RI. She is a very professional realtor and responded in a very timely manner-usually within 15-30 minutes, which is just amazing. As property developers, we have had many encounters with other realtors and by far we were very impressed with your company. We look forward to working with you in the future.

David & Kim Caron; South Windsor, CT Misquamicut

Lori Joyal was a pleasure to work with. She led us through the purchase of our new home wonderfully and beyond being professional, we now consider her a good friend. She is honest and trustworthy, and we would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Carolyn; Westerly, RI Misquamicut

We cannot recommend Lori and Bob Joyal highly enough! Lori's local market expertise, and personalized approach to our home search was invaluable. From day one we knew that we had a knowledgeable and trusted advisor on our side. We have the utmost respect for Lori and Bob and the effective, fair and honest manner in which they conduct their business. They helped us find the perfect beach home for our family, and helped us to successfully navigate the entire process from start to finish!

Keely Krantz; Holliston, MA Quonnie

Lori was an absolute pleasure to work with during our entire purchase process. She handled the negotiation and all of the follow-up in an effective and efficient manner. Her service throughout the process was truly outstanding. I would highly recommend her to represent you in a Buyer or Seller capacity.

Jason Krantz; Charlestown, RI Quonnie

We just wanted to write to thank you for the substantial help you provided that enabled us to find the perfect home-away-from-home in RI. Your prep work prior to our arrival allowed us to maximize our limited time. Your availability, at seemingly anytime, was above and beyond our expectations.

Laurie & Jamie; New York, NY

From the moment we signed with Lori, every detail no matter how small or big was handled professionally, thoroughly and efficiently... her level of customer service is outstanding, specifically in the areas of price point knowledge, advertising and negotiating skills. Lori's personality makes you feel very comfortable during a time when difficult decisions need to be made. As your representative, she keeps her finger on the pulse of all current market issues in the surrounding area of the point of sale location. In addition, she has solid relationships with local trades-people which assisted tremendously during the selling process. We would strongly endorse Lori to represent you anyone for a seamless transition of the sale of your property.

Roger Schumacher & Mercedes Smith; Wethersfield, CT Quonnie

Lori has been wonderful in helping me find a home. She helped look at EVERY possible home in the town. I liked the part where she''s always looked at a possibility positively and has always talked positively regarding every possible selection. It has definitely been a great experience with Lori on the job!

Arvind S. Gautam; Westerly, RI

I want to thank you for all of your assistance throughout the past 9 months when we began getting offers for our property. You have been very diligent at showing our property and obtaining offers, and we always knew what each buyer’s feedback was throughout the process, which has helped us make the best decision on price listings and other aspects of our property. You have also been willing to explore creative ways to accomplish other needs that arose during this time, including the payment of taxes, etc. You were very effective at keeping things moving and keeping us well informed throughout the entire process. Thank you.

Laurie Furney; South Kingstown, RI

Now that the dust has settled, I want you to know how much I enjoyed working with you to sell my house and purchase another. You made an arduous task so much easier for me. Your professionalism, knowledge of the real estate industry & most of all your prompt response to my phone calls and e-mails, let me know I was in good hands. I can't say enough about your exceptional service and wish you nothing but the best Lori!!! I couldn't be more pleased with the way everything went.
