Lori and her daughter moved to Dublin from Castro Valley over a decade ago and found a place they call home within Tassajara Meadows.

“We absolutely love Dublin! The schools, the parks, the water park, theater, shopping, restaurants…Everything we need just a short walk through the park away.”

In the late 1990s though 2000’s Lori was intricately involved with the new construction throughout the Oakland hills and Alameda and has worked closely with the permit and planning departments. Lori is experienced in permits, planning, design, staging, marketing, and home sales.

In 2016 Lori decided to join the resale market as an agent with Alain Pinel Realtors Montclair and Alameda offices. While still representing buyers and sellers in the Oakland, Alameda and Castro Valley markets Lori switched to Alain Pinel’s Pleasanton office to work a little closer to home. In 2019, APR joined forces with Compass Real Estate.

Lori really enjoys working with Sellers and all that goes into preparing and listing a home. She also loves the “search” and enjoys working with buyers to find their dream home. Working with both buyers and sellers and having such an extensive knowledge of the entire East Bay she offers complete comprehensive services to all of her clients.

Lori’s has lived in, is familiar with and has close ties to Oakland, Alameda, Castro Valley, Dublin, Pleasanton, and Livermore.

In Lori’s spare time she is following her daughter around from pageant to pageant where she has held the titles of Miss Alameda County Teen USA, Miss Beverly Hills Teen USA, and currently Miss Greater San Diego Teen. Her Daughter AnnaNoel will be competing this year for the third year in a row at the Miss California Pageant promoting her Anti-Bulling platform.

Giving back is very important to Lori. She is involved in charities such as Progressive Transitions, Meals on Wheels, Feed The Tri-Valley, her daughter’s own charity: #itstartswithme an anti-bullying campaign. Lori also gives 10% of all of her income to World Vision. Lori sponsors a new child across the world from the commission she receives on each and every real estate transaction. Upon the close of escrow, the clients are presented with a framed photo of the child whose life they have changed. After stabilizing the children with food, clothing, and shelter she communicates with them to find their dreams in life and starts an education fund for each child.

“Each child has truly become a part of my family, we communicate regularly and I am so blessed to have each of them in my life!”

Lori’s goal is to someday change the lives of 100 children! she keeps a photo of each of them on her desk as motivation!!

By choosing to work with Lori she will take care of all of the details to create a stress-free transaction while keeping things lighthearted and humorous. “As your agent, I will take charge and gently guide you through the process of what, for most people, is one of the biggest decisions in their life!”

With Lori’s track record for excellence and Compass Real Estate’s extensive marketing strategies, your home will be presented to a large audience of High Net-Worth individuals and investors on a Local, National and Global level.

“Should you choose me as your agent to either assist you in the purchase of your new home or to represent you with the sale of your Bay Area Property you are assured to experience a level of professionalism and strategic planning like no other~”

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Lori Olson should be your realtor. This was our first time selling a home, and we didn’t really know what to expect. We interviewed four agents (yes, it’s a lot, shush), and Lori blew us away from the start. Her presentation was very well polished, even though we only gave her about 24 hours  notice before asking her to meet us. She even managed to gather some helpful information that none of the other’s had to set herself apart.

We had moved from the East Coast at the end of last year, and were going to open-houses in Pleasanton trying to purchase a small ranch house to live in. At one of these open-houses we met Lori, who was friendly and helpful. She guided us through the whole process, always staying positive,  cheerful, and considerate. We can always count on prompt response from her when we have questions, and count on her help when we have problems.
