About Me

Here's a little background!

Lori Robben’s experience and success as a Real Estate Broker is not only proven by her impressive sales achievements, but is recognized and fortified by her clients, colleagues and peers.

As a 5th generation Kansas Citian Lori Robben knows the Kansas City metro well. “We are HUGE fans of Lori and feel very comfortable in recommending her to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home in the areas she serves. You will not find a better agent to represent you in your efforts! Having bought and sold homes for over 40 years in more than a dozen US cities we've never found a better real estate agent,....as well as a terrific person!,” says Michael and Lynda Legan a client of Lori’s. 

Along with her signature composure, dedication and tenacity, Lori uses her personal experiences, skills and knowledge to develop an unparalleled formula consisting of effective communication, unwavering integrity, complete discretion and market accuracy to create a positive, memorable, and valuable journey for her clients. 

While finishing her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Missouri – Kansas City, she began her career in the Marketing and Advertising. That led into a career as a Marketing Director for the area’s top Real Estate Companies in 1994.

Fo
r most her career has been focused in residential new construction. She promoted and sold the neighborhoods, the builders, the homes and the real estate company. This includes 22 neighborhoods, 15 builders, over 3,000 homes and 7 real estate companies. She also has experience as a Buyer’s and Seller’s Agent and is experienced with short sales, foreclosures, auctions, traditional sales, condo sales and has leased over 200 homes. 

This work experience translates into the most qualified Buyer's Agent for your new home purchase. Lori is equipped to negotiate a new home purchase previously thought to be non-negotiable market. 

Her solid work ethic, strict attention-to-detail and unwavering “client-first” approach towards each property she takes on has resulted in many successful, top-priced sales and many happy clients – making her a perfect match to work with whether buying or selling a home.
