"Lorna did a super job with our home purchase.

Everything that needed to get done got done. Lorna followed up on questions we had, very quickly every time. We can't thank her enough for a great job."

Randy & Laura | Home Buyer

"Working with Lorna was nothing short of amazing.

We have absolutely nothing but praise for not only all of the assistance she provided us, but also for all of the recommendations and references along the way (i.e. inspector, lender etc.) She gave us information to several different companies, and all of those she referred us to were great. Lorna has an awesome attitude, is hard working and determined to make her clients happy. We enjoyed every minute we spent with her. Our only upset with our new home is that we will no longer need to call her up. We had so much fun house hunting with her! Lorna really cares about each person she works with, and made it clear that if we need any help in the future in regards to anything at all she will always be available to us! She is knowledgeable, responsive and very personable. I would recommend her to any and everyone!"

Magen & Ramel | Home Buyer

On a whim, my wife and I wanted to see a home in a waterfront community we were interested in living in.

We contacted Lorna who swung into action and got us in to see the home that same day. We were told another buyer was presenting an offer so upon deciding we wanted to make an offer, we knew we were racing against time. Lorna produced a contract for us lightning quick and had it to the seller’s agent in the nick of time and the seller took our offer. She adjusted her day and gave up her dinner hour to accomplish this! From there, she was on top of the process from start to finish - very detail oriented and was 100 percent our strong ally. She’s also an incredibly nice person. We were delighted and would like for buyers and sellers to know - that you will be in better-than good hands with Lorna on your residential real estate side!! She’s that good!!

Fred & Liz

"Lorna is truly a Realtors Realtor!

She has surpassed all expectations and is superior in knowledge, negotiations, local market and service in every respect. Lorna presented and sold my listing in two days! And the price was right. I am very satisfied with Lorna Cornett as an agent."

Carolyn | Home Seller

My husband and I packed up our house and business of 20 years in Los Angeles, packed up our RV and headed East to the Colonial Heights area of Virginia where our son, his wife and our two beautiful grandchildren reside.

We planned to live in our RV until we found a house to buy. We interviewed 3 realtors before we picked Lorna…she just seemed to be the best fit for us. She knew the areas we were looking in very well, she was knowledgeable overall, friendly, personable, responsive and most of all, patient. We were very nervous about finding the right house with the right specifications in a short time. We gave Lorna our list of “wants” and given what we were finding online, we kept changing our minds surely driving her nuts. She never showed one ounce of frustration with us and rolled with our craziness. When we kept deviating from our original asks, she gently reminded us of all the things that we were looking for and encouraged us not to settle. One of the things that I loved most about Lorna was that she was honest about what was good and not so good about every house we saw. She had a vision for every house that we looked at and was very creative and knowledgeable about building homes. We found a house that meet our criteria and put in an offer. We didn’t get the house and got very upset and discouraged. Lorna lifted us up and assured us something better was out there for us. She suggested we take a few days off from looking and take some time to relax, as she understood that we had been on a whirlwind for months. She remained very responsive throughout the whole process, always making time for us. We even thought of building our own home and she had done the research explaining in detail how that would work and how that might not be the best option for us. Three days later, the perfect house came along. We put in an offer right away below asking and right away the offer was accepted. She so understood, going back to the seller’s agent with all of our requests and questions. Lorna’s involvement didn’t stop there…she helped us find painters, flooring, someone to clean the gutters, somewhere to buy appliances, lawn mowers…she had an answer for everything. Everyone was a great recommendation and took excellent care of us just like she did. Most impressive was the fact that the sellers smoked in the house and the smell in the house was very distressing. Lorna did extensive research on how to get rid of the smell. She didn’t stop until she found a solution. She made what could have been a much more stressful time much less stressful. And let’s not forget to mention her delightful sense of humor. She really “got” us very quickly. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for that special place to call home. She is a rare treasure.

Tracy C. | Home Seller & Home Buyer

"This was a quick sale and closing and was sometimes quite stressful and confusing, but Lorna was very helpful at every stage in the process.

This made what could have been difficult seem almost painless. I was grateful for the support and guidance I received throughout the process of selling my house."

Timothy | Home Seller

"Lorna was excellent.

..always returned my calls and emails promptly...gave me good advice on the house, such as new mulch in the backyard, better photos for the MLS listing (I had a previous agent from another company)...and she helped me come to terms with the sale...less than what I had hoped. Still and all, very professional and the experience was actually quite good. I like her...she is the right person for the job."

Cathleen | Home Seller

" Lorna sold our house in less than a day, can't get much better than that.

She was a huge help in setting up the house and advertising our home and was always available to assist us with any question we had."

Matt & Daphne | Home Seller

"We could not have asked for a better realtor.

From the very beginning Lorna went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. She has contacts and resources in every aspect of home buying and was willing to go the extra mile before we even asked. She made us feel like we were her number one priority and was amazingly easy to get in touch with. She was part of a Christmas miracle for our family as she helped us close on our dream house (despite some really big obstacles!) the week before Christmas. Even after we closed she has been available and in touch with us. We are so thankful she was on our team and highly recommend her to everyone we know."

Sarah Magnuson | Home Buyer

"Lorna is not only a wonderful agent but a wonderful person.

During our search for the perfect home she was extremely helpful and patient with us during the whole process. She provided valuable service and was loyal to the end...and still keeps in touch. I can honestly has that Lorna is a valuable asset for new and seasoned home buyers. She provides excellent customer service unselfishly and whole heartedly. Agents like her are few and far between. She was everything we needed and more in an agent. You helped make a difference in our life and we thank you Lorna!"

Greg & Jennifer Anderson | Home Buyer

"Lorna made the whole process of buying our house so easy and fun!

She negotiated with the seller and gave us a lot of extra information and care. She really went above and beyond for us in so many ways, we would recommend her to anyone who wants the stress taken out of what should be a joyful time in your life."

Alison Pels

"We can not recommend Lorna enough!

She was endlessly patient, kind, knowledgeable, helpful, and honest. She was able to sell our home and help us close on a new home within a month and a half - super fast! We couldn’t have done it this quickly and smoothly without her expertise. She held our hands when we needed it and gave us the space to think and make decisions when we needed it. She always made herself available and advocated hard for us. It’s almost a shame we found such a great home - we shouldn’t be needing her services again for a very long time!"

Sarah Stewart | Home Buyer & Seller

"Lorna has been amazing through this whole process.

She has been nothing short of accommodating and hard working. 100% recommend her and we will use her if we ever need to in the future!"

Kristy Miller

"Lorna guided us first time buyers every step of the way.

She spent as much time with us as we needed answering questions, asking questions, she made buying our first home the best experience we could ask for. We were incredibly lucky to have found such a wonderful agent!

Amy Huseth-Broom | Home Buyer

Lorna Cornett is the consummate professional and the realtor you want in your corner!

She is not your typical realtor as she treated us as if we were her own family! She went the extra mile at every step. She went above and beyond with all of our needs. Mrs. Cornett helped us sell our house in Dinwiddie. We had several challenges to include not residing in the state of Virginia during the sell (we are military) and getting our house ready to sell. The help Mrs. Cornett provided us to overcome these challenges were invaluable! Her vast knowledge and the assets at her disposal were nothing short of Remarkable! Needless to say, we would not have sold our house without her. If every person were as knowledgeable, dedicated and professional as Mrs. Cornett, we'd live in a perfect utopia! If you are looking for a realtor and want a realtor to treat you like family, Mrs. Cornett is the one person to call!

Thomas Bantan Jr

"Lorna was great from beginning to end and beyond.

She knows her business and was able to answer all of my questions and provided information that I didn't know I needed. After the sale, she followed up several times, and even came by for a short visit. This is the fifth house that I have purchased, and she is, by far, the BEST agent with whom I have ever worked. I have already recommended her to others, and will continue to do so. She is simply the best!!"

Penny | Home Buyer

"Lorna worked very hard to help us through a difficult sale and purchase deal.

She not only helped us to get through the specifics of the transaction but she was a shoulder to lean on when things looked like they may not work out in the end. I would definitely recommend Lorna to anyone looking to buy or sell a house."

Kristina Montefusco | Home Buyer & Seller

"When picking a realtor there was no choice for me.

Lorna had helped my parents buy their home when relocating from New Jersey to Virginia and it became very obvious that she cared more then just a business deal. She immediately felt like a friend. When searching for my new forever home relocating from South Carolina I contacted Lorna and began the process. Her knowledge, Honesty and professionalism is unmatched. She truly cares that you find the right fit for you no matter how long it takes."

Lorna showed me houses and when I decided to build she pointed me in the right direction. She explained everything with patience and never left my side. I couldn't be happier. I recommend her to everyone and if you need a realtor she's the one you want!"

!! Although we have yet to find our perfect/dream home, we are taking our time to be certain and is not in rush. She has been patience with us and checking in, providing us with homes that meet certain expectations of our dream home.

"Lorna is a very professional agent that gets to know what the client is looking for as well as the clients personality to better serve their needs and get them in a house and location that they will be happy with.

If and when it's time to sell I will definitely be looking for Lorna. She will be getting referrals from me."

Patrick | Home Buyer

We first contacted Lorna in June 2020 about helping us find a home in Virginia.

We were preparing to move from Maryland, and Lorna came highly recommended from family. From the very start, Lorna was professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and thorough in every step of the process that helped us find the perfect home for our family. If you're looking for a realtor who is a no-nonsense type, and can help you see through the pretty exterior of potential housing disasters, Lorna is the perfect fit for you. If you want a realtor who is quick to respond to your questions and concerns, Lorna is definitely who you need to contact! Again, we cannot thank her enough for helping us navigate the most stressful purchase you can possibly make, and helping us find our new home!

Patrick & Megan L.

"Ms Lorna was absolutely amazing!

We were first time home buyers and all the way in Germany! Lorna went above and beyond and made the process so easy for us. She would answer all of our questions and calls no matter the time of day. She is truly amazing and would recommend her every time!!"

Taylor Davis | Home Buyer

"Lorna went out of her way to help us find a home, not just a house.

She was extremely helpful in getting us everything we asked for and went above and beyond to ensure we were informed about our decisions. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to find a new home!"

Jim & Tracy | Home Buyer

"It only took Lorna 2 weeks to get a contract on a home we were selling.

She has an enormous network which connects buyers with their perfect home. We encountered obstacles and Lorna was able to change major problems into minor challenges. She then helped us overcome them through her experience and professional relationships with area experts. Lorna was always available and responded promptly, it was obvious that it is not "just a job" for her, she truly likes what she does. She is an AWESOME REALTOR!"

Dolly Emory | Home Seller

Lorna helped us buy our home in Sutherland.

Throughout the entire process, she was in constant contact and the really great thing about Lorna is that she listens, she anticipates how things might unfold process-wise and she stays a step ahead of things. This is what makes a Realtor exceptional. She’s also continually checking to see what else she can do - in an above and beyond manner- and for a busy Realtor that’s really something. She doesn’t presume and she doesn’t push. On our transaction, she met us at a property that was likely just about to accept another offer, then raced to complete our competing offer, with guidance on how to best present strong, and she got us the house - a house we love - a house that placed us close to family when there were limited options. We whole-heartedly recommend Lorna. Use her with confidence.

Liz L.

"Lorna was absolutely incredible during our home buying experience.

My wife and I had no idea what we were getting into with this process, but Lorna made it easy for us. Her extensive background knowledge of the financial side of things, coupled with her outstanding customer service and driven by a unique personal touch made us feel comfortable taking this huge step in our lives. Her professionalism and dedication are unmatched by most individuals I've dealt with in any field."

Rachel Home Buyer

"My Realtor was an absolute gem.

Joshua L. | Home Buyer

"Lorna was awesome!

She not only met the standards I had in mind for a realtor, but EXCEEDED them! She was always very professional, kind, and real with us through the whole process from start to finish. She couldn't have been a better fit for our selling needs. She ensured to give us tips to make our sell go quickly, gave us up to date information on showings, interest and much more. While the house was under contract she ensured we knew what was going on during each step and NEVER made us feel like a burden when asking a million and one questions. If I wasn't moving so far away, I would have her guide me through additional home buying and selling experiences. Thank you so much for making this one so smooth and awesome!"

Dayne Wallace | Home Seller

"Lorna is an excellent realtor and person who truly cares about the people that she works with.

My grandfather passed away on a holiday and as soon as Lorna heard she sent me a card and checked up on me. She is knowledgeable and has a great heart. I would recommend her to anyone in the area who is searching for a home."

Joe L. | Home Buyer

"Lorna Cornett assisted me with listing my house and also helping me find my forever home this past summer.

She was very thorough and always called regularly to check in and to make sure all was on track. She was very patient with me while we searched for the new home. It took me about 8 to 9 months of looking to find the right home. Lorna knew how well I like the house that we put an offer on and she gave me so much wonderful advice to ensure that my offer was accepted. She is very dedicated and genuinely cares for her clients. She enjoys what she does and she will be there to guide and help protect her client. She is always staying on top of new things that come about in the real estate business. She has a network of companies that she can refer for services and I was very pleased with each one that she suggested. Lorna was a friend before this process but she remains one even after. I had enough trust in her to keep our personal and professional separate."

Tracey Childers | Home Seller & Home Buyer

You will not find anyone who will work harder for you to achieve your dream of home ownership.

When obstacles come up, she digs in and works harder. Very impressed!"

ToJuan Wilkins | Home Buyer

Lorna is a true professional, along with being very personable!

She did a wonderful job listing and presenting our home in different venues. She is extremely comfortable with which to work, and her integrity is exemplified in everything she does (from signing on with her to the closing). We highly recommend Lorna and would use her again in a heartbeat!

Sherri and Ed

"Lorna Cornett was a pleasure to work with and I will recommend her to all of my military friends.

She was not pushy and rushing you. She just took care of our needs. Lorna explained everything to us to the best of her ability and found out the correct answer to the questions she was unsure of ( a plus in our eyes). She understood that this was our first home search and we did not know anything about purchasing a home. Lorna was a homes and loyal agent. Thank you Lorna Cornett for a great experience of buying a home."

Michael & Tabitha | Home Buyer

"Lorna is the most professional agent we have had the pleasure of working with, and can't recommend enough.

Lorna works tirelessly at finding homes that meet your needs, knows the area extremely well, and helps you in things to consider when looking at potential homes. Once we saw the house we really liked, Lorna went above and beyond in helping us negotiate, walked us through each of the steps required for closing, and is there for us after closing. Thanks to Lorna, we now are in our forever dream home, and we can't thank Lorna enough."

Rob | Home Buyer

"Lorna was the best!

She, while in the process of moving herself still made time for my family to find our home. While looking at several houses in several locations all over would point out details about properties we never noticed. She even climbed up in the attic over the beams just to look on the back side of the air conditioning unit up at a hole she noticed. Just to see if there was anything wrong. Highly recommend her. Thank You Lorna for all you have done for my family and I. We truly got the house we were looking for."

Kurt Miller | Home Buyer

"Lorna was professional, knowledgeable, and helpful through the whole home buying experience.

I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking to buy a home. She made what could have been a stressful experience a pleasant one."

Paul | Home Buyer

"Lorna is the best there is in a real estate agent.

She handles everything and MORE to make sure her client is very satisfied. She is proactive, takes the initiative and followed up on every aspect involved in the selling of our home. I highly recommend her ...and only her...if you need a real estate agent. She has years of experience dealing with all sides...buying, selling, lender...that greatly benefits her clients. She was invaluable to us in every way. I cannot sing her praises enough. She did more in one month than another agent did in three months and was successful too! Lorna is the real deal."

Donna Starkus-Ward | Home Seller

"Lorna was awesome!

She made buying a house simple. She was very accommodating and knowledgeable. I’ve used realtors before but none of them compare to Lorna"

We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home."

Nikki | Home Buyer

" Lorna is a very intelligent and detail oriented real estate agent.

She exceeded our expectations and was extremely knowledgeable and professional in her approach to the sale of our home. We encountered several obstacle during the entire process but Lorna remained optimistic and as a result kept us optimistic. I would definitely encourage anyone selling a home out there to not settle for any real estate agent. If we would have settled, we would still be attempting to sell our home.As far as I am concerned, Lorna is in the top tier of her profession."

Nick & Melissa | Home Seller

"Great experience.

"

Lemond A. | Home Buyer

Lorna was large and in-charge from the beginning of our home sale efforts.

She continuously was the driving force that kept the process on the tracks to success despite all the crossings and sidings encountered.. Each set-back or potentially negative obstacle was met with a confident response and positive direction that could only come from someone with the poise and depth of experience such as only Lorna possesses. Lorna exudes a genuine friendliness that makes even the difficult events during the sale process bearable and she imparts the feeling you have a friend in the deal that you can trust and count on to the end and afterwards. She is the consummate professional and a genuine great lady to select for your venture in real estate whether buying or selling!

Jeb & Marianne Blair

"Lorna was wonderful!

My husband and I are first time home buyers and we were very inexperienced and lacked knowledge of the home buying process, but Lorna was very patient with us and did a fantastic job explaining things to us. We got discouraged a few times, but Lorna always found a way to encourage us. Thanks for helping us find our dream home, Lorna!" - The Butlers
