It’s all about relationships. Throughout my 46 years as a teacher, I’ve learned that relationships matter the most, and that applies to real estate, too. As teachers, my wife and I moved here from the east coast almost 20 years ago, and it was through a real estate broker that we first got to know Albuquerque. Our experience had a profound effect on us in the place we now call home.
Few things are more gratifying than sharing what you love with others, which is what I was able to do every day as a teacher, and continue to do as a Realtor. I love meeting people and being with people, and as a Realtor I have that opportunity on a daily basis. I also love architecture, and how it reflects what we value in our society.
I have had the opportunity to travel to many different countries around the world, and no matter where I went, I observed that home and relationships transcended all cultures. Whether you’re thinking about selling or buying, a local or from out of town, the right relationship can lead you in the right direction. I look forward to meeting you and your family, getting to know you, and working together on the next phase of your real estate adventure.
Lori Roybal joined Vista Encantada in 2017 as an associate broker. A UNM graduate with a Bachelor of Architecture, Roybal obtained her Master of Architecture from the University of Arizona but decided to return to New Mexico where she could enjoy all the things that New Mexico offers including 4 seasons.
Lori loves houses and everything about them, and after 20 years as an interior designer with Pamela D. Earnest Interiors, Inc., she decided to combine her two professions with the thought that they are a perfect twosome. She has worked with small and large houses, remodels and new builds and everything in between. Lori strives to expand her level of service, and therefore has earned the designations of RENE (Real Estate Negotiations Expert) as well as the MRP (Military Relocation Professional).
Her background in interiors and architecture gives her a unique insight into traffic flow and space planning of homes, remodel options and general construction knowledge. Since she has worked on so many homes, she is also very familiar with costs of renovating and refreshing.
People and real estate are two of my greatest passions! What gets me out of bed every day is the thought that “Today I have the opportunity to make someone’s dream of home ownership a reality.”
Listening and providing the highest level of service have served as the foundation for my success since 2001. Whether you need to buy or sell your home, I am here to serve, guide and educate. With a strong support team working behind the scenes, I am available to you every step of the way. And, as a premiere broker with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, I have access to a global network of Realtors® and relocation professionals. This incredible network is a curated collection of the world’s best independently owned brokerages, and I am honored to be counted among their ranks!
95% of my business is referral based, therefore, my continued success hinges on the relationship I forge with you, my customer. Meeting your expectations is my number one priority.
On a more personal note, when I am not working I enjoy exploring our beautiful city. Known for my love of all things local, my customers, family and friends consider me their “go to” for all the latest in local restaurants, music and upcoming events. And as a “want to be wine enthusiasts,” my husband and I are always on the hunt for new wines to taste.
So the next time you are looking for the perfect restaurant, a great bottle of wine, or the best local Realtor®, I’m just a phone call, email, or text away.
