As your personal expert into life here in beautiful Coastal North Carolina, it is my passion to help you learn about the vast array of communities here and to help you find the perfect new home. My goal is to make your new home purchase as carefree as possible so you can be confident that you have made the best long term choice for your family and your future.
I married a Marine Corp pilot and moved to this area for the first time over 30 years ago. After years of buying and selling homes and moving from one duty station to the next, I realized that my heart felt most at home in Coastal North Carolina. I moved here permanently in 2002, got my brokers license the same year and I have been actively involved in real estate since that time. It is worth noting that I am also SFR and ABR certified.
I have an extensive background in sales and customer service and I take great pride in execution (providing you with the most timely information available and negotiating on your behalf), follow through (responding to your questions and concerns as quickly as possible), and completion of task ( being fully devoted to helping you smoothly close the deal on your new dream home).
I am very excited to show you around the area. Not only are the communities diverse, neighborhoods within the communities each have a unique signature to complement every lifestyle. Whether you are interested in easy commutes, amenities and water access, nearby schools, beachfront, or you simply want to enjoy listening to coastal wildlife from your back porch in a private setting, we have it all! I look forward to meeting you and I can't wait to help you unlock the door to your new home!

Our experience with Lori was five star from the very first contact. She called me after noticing I inquired on her company web site. I was a naive vacationer and she gave me valuable facts to consider when buying a vacation home. She set me up with a search that was specific to my wants and needs and made sure I got updates when status changed on my saved properties. That first impression stuck with me and 9 months later she showed us properties and helped us settle on our little piece of Heaven. Her professionalism, real estate knowledge, easy going nature and attention to our needs continues to impress us. She helped make our dream come true!Pam Szivos
Lori contacted me after I filled out an online search for houses in the Topsail Beach area and requested an agent’s assistance. She got the information on the type of house we were looking for and began to funnel us various houses that she felt would meet our needs. Lori is very easy to talk to and was very attentive to our needs. She is quick to follow through and very thorough. I never asked a question that wasn't quickly and completely answered. We were also looking from out of state which made it hard for us complete some of the required contacts and follow-ups. Lori took care of everything we needed, did so in a professional and friendly manner and we could not have asked for a better agent. I was impressed enough with Lori that I have already referred her to friends who plan to relocate to this area in the near future. Also, should I find myself in the market for another property in that area anytime in the future I will be contacting Lori to represent me.Douglas Payne
If you are looking for real estate in the Surf City, NC area Lori Preble is your absolute go-to agent. She went above and beyond to assist my parents in finding the perfect retirement home. She works hard on behalf of the buyer and we found this especially useful as my parents did not live ‘right around the corner’ it was fantastic having dependable ‘boots on the ground’ working on their behalf when they could not always physically be on location. Lori is personable and professional. She worked calmly under tight deadlines and ensured every question asked was addressed. Even on her ‘off’ days she is willing to adjust her calendar if you needed to take another look at a property or meet. Not only will she help you find and purchase your dream home she will even share a fantastic margarita recipe that you can use to celebrate!Drena Howard
It was a pleasure to work with Lori! She never left any question unanswered and was incredibly responsive and patient. She took the time to get to know our family and our specific needs and found us a home that we will be thrilled with for years to come. We recommend her highly!Laura and Tom Robertson
Lori went above and beyond in helping me sell my Beach Condo on Topsail Island. I was an out-of-town owner who could rely on Lori for the many details of negotiating and completing the sale - especially when during the sales process my condominium sustained damage from Hurricane Florence. Lori helped me through the year long process of restoration and always with a calm and encouraging demeanor. Lori's experience and expertise was invaluable in selling my property.Annie
