"Lorna made, what could have been,a VERY stressful process so amazingly easy."
There are not enough good things I can say about my experience with Lorna Sherland and Success Power Brokers. Lorna made, what could have been, a VERY stressful process so amazingly easy. I always felt like she had my best interests in mind, and she never let me down. Regrettably I was hundreds of miles away from the property but Lorna during this process, worked with me so easily and got me every document I needed quickly and efficiently. Lorna worked tirelessly with the bank to make sure that the arrangement we all came to was the best for me. There were numerous times I would receive emails from her well past most people's "working hours". She was an advocate for me. Not only is she an amazing broker, she is also a fantastic and driven woman who is funny, direct and became a person I would trust to with just about anything . I will always be grateful.
Lorna, you are so fantastic and helped me get through this with ease. The ownership of this home was so beyond stressful to me for so many years. You can ask friends and family and they will concur that it was the biggest source of stress for me for so so long. You took that stress away. I feel like a weight is lifted off my shoulders. I don't know how to thank you enough. I will be recommending you to EVERYONE in the area.

"For anyone who wants a full service agent"
Lorna walked us through every step of the process. Not only lining up a mortgage broker, attorney and home inspector, but even negotiating aggressively and successfully with our home builder to personalize our home exactly like we wanted. We would highly recommend Lorna to anyone who wants a full service agent working on their behalf, from start to finish.

"My sincere appreciation for all your help"
I just wanted to drop you a few lines to express my sincere appreciation for your all help during the recent purchase of our new home.
My husband I were first time homebuyers. We had no idea what we were doing. All we knew was that we desperately wanted to be homeowners after many years of renting. Of course, this was not a problem for you. After listening to me, you said, I think I have a just the right house for you. When we saw the house, we could not believe it, as it was simply perfect! But it was the first house we looked at, so of course, we looked at others just to have something to do, but we knew we had found our house right from the start.
Our next concern, and probably the biggest; was how were we going to finance the mortgage! You told us about an excellent program that could help us get the financing we needed. The "No Money Down" program offered by Lend America proved to be the answer to our prayers as it allowed us to purchase our home with nearly no out of pocket expenses.
After we received the financing, your caring and concern never ceased as you continued to hold my hand. Although you weren't our agent, you were there for me EVERY SINGLE DAY of the process until the closing. And for that Lorna, my family and I are forever grateful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"Our home buying experience in Highland Mills"
Our home buying experience thru you was the best. Your consistency, diligence and patience was above and beyond the call of duty. Even when we gave up you did not and as a result we are in the home of our dreams. You were exceptional and relentless and most of all personable. Your down to earth approach to us helped to make us feel at home with you as you made every effort to find us the home we were looking for and not the one you thought we should have. I don't think there can be a better quality in your line of work.
Thanks from our hearts for what you have done

"Her professionalism, demeanor always made us feel comfortable ..."
In December of 2011 my husband and I were devastated when our landlord told us we were going to have an increase in our rent of a house we had rented for seven years. It was then we sat down and discussed that it was time that we actively looked for a house that we truly could call our own. We were tired of wasting our money on something that would never be ours. It was at that time the bank we got information from referred us to Lorna. Lorna spoke with my husband first and asked all the right questions about space, area and price range. We looked at many houses but Lorna’s persistence and ours never wavered until we found our dream home. We saw it in the first set of houses we looked at but after discussing our finances we couldn’t afford it. Needless to say we kept looking. Finally the dream house that we saw back in February came down in price and we decided we had to go for it. After a long journey we are settled into our “dream home” and it’s all because of Lorna. Her professionalism, demeanor always made us feel comfortable discussing all the aspects involved in getting this house. We couldn’t have done it without her for which we are truly grateful. She is a shining star in this industry and anyone who is looking for a home she will give you her all to help you find the right one. Thank you Lorna! We love you!
I am writing to you today to let you know how pleased I am with the service that was provided to my family from Lorna Sherland and Keller-Williams Realty. We were very impatient as we had many tragedies in our family over the past several months and a lot of other issues going on and of course money was a big issue as a result. We repeatedly called Lorna and she never got mad. She certainly worked hard over the past 6 months. Everything worked out just fine and we now have a big load off our minds.
I appreciate all Lorna's hard work and would definitely refer her to family and friends.

"Professional…. always pleasant….never pressures!"
Lorna Sherland always made us feel like we were her only clients with her attentive nature by returning calls within the hour and offering suggestions when we needed them. She is always professional…. always pleasant….never pressures. She kept us informed with the progress and at times with the lack of progress on our transactions. Although our purchase and sale transactions were a bit trying due to circumstances beyond all of our control, she was the rock who made a trying time more manageable. I am grateful that she was recommended to us by a friend.
"The Importance of the Inspection"
Greetings to you.
This is good information - as usual. How well I remember that final inspection and the importance of it! This month marks a year since we have been at our new location, thanks in part to your guidance; God takes the ultimate credit, of course. To date, we have no regrets. This in no wise means that there have not been challenges, but overall, the initial negotiations and following through to the successful outcome were well worth it.
Many thanks, blessings and best wishes in all your endeavors. We'll be in touch. Continue to keep me in prayer.

Great Experience !!!
I just want to take time out to thank you for all that you have done for me during my search for the right home. You have gone above and beyond to help me through this process. When I tell my friends about you, I tell them that this experience went beyond the broker/buyer phase, because you were helpful with things that were not even pertaining to the normal real estate process. You have made the house hunting as well as buying a truly enjoyable event.
Once again, I want to thank you for making this house hunting as well buying a wonderful experience, a lot of my friends told me this this would be a very stressful time, so I feel cheated because you made it too easy for me. I hope that we can remain friends, and should the need for me to purchase somewhere else arise, you would be the first person on my list. Also I will delighted to recommend you to my friends.
