"We worked with Lori Yarusi - who we can not say enough AMAZING things about! From our first conversation, Lori was a constant professional, organized, thoughtful, responsive, perceptive, and just easy to work with. She goes the extra mile and really was patient with us, walking us through each step of the process (which we needed). We have kind of high expectations and she exceeded them all."

  -Jessica D., Client

"Lori is an incredible realtor who goes above and beyond for her clients. Beginning with her approach- thoughtful, warm and understanding. She took the time to get to our entire family and put a plan together to find our forever home. Her patience, humor and unprecedented responsiveness sets her apart. Lori is a partner! Every step of the way...days nights & weekends. She was ALWAYS there. Thank you Lori for your guidance and incredible service - you are the best. We ?? Lori."

  -Stephanie N., Client

"Lori is a gem, we are so fortunate to have been able to work with her when we purchased our new house. Lori really knows Westfield (she even picked us up from the train station with our infant to give us a tour of the town !) We were moving from New York City and weren’t familiar with the area so it was nice to hear a locals perspective on everything. By the end of our first meeting we felt welcomed, informed, and like we had known her for years. She was even able to pinpoint exactly what we were looking for and offer highly valuable feedback. I highly recommend her to anybody looking for a real estate agent who will listen to your needs and communicate with you (and even interrupt her dinner to take your call!)"

  -Beth S., Client

"Lori is a fantastic real estate agent. We worked with her on both sides of the transaction. She listed our house, found us a buyer and then helped us find the perfect downsize transition home. We definitely made the right decision -working with Lori because she made us feel so secure knowing that she and the Kim Haley team had our back every step of the way. Specifically Lori was uber responsive and meticulous in all the details. She spent lots of time showing us homes and was very patient with us because we did not find our new home on the first outing! Having grown up in the area, her knowledge of Westfield and the surrounding towns is unparalleled! I highly recommend working with Lori - you will not be disappointed! If you have any questions, feel free to message me!"
