She really cares about her clients, listening to all the different opinions and personalities and just is so gracious. She really wants everyone to feel at home when they come to visit her and building relationships is just so natural. I told Lori over the phone what I had in mind and sent some inspo pics, my mom came in who is as picky as ever, Lori came out with our sample center piece and in one shot, she nailed it. We all were in awe!!
