Client Testimonials


"Lori did an amazing job with our sale in Edgewater, MD. We decided to put the home   on the market, and after we had our first initial meeting with her, we started showing two weeks later! She is super responsive, supportive, and timely. She is an expert in our neighborhood and has years of experience which helps with the ease of selling a home. Our price was accurate, and as a result, our home sold quickly. I would highly recommend Lori and her team."
Lindsay Rentz Edgewater MD


"The Gough Group are the experts in Annapolis real estate. There is no better option in the Annapolis area. 10/10 recommended. Kellie and Lori made the entire process very easy for me. I couldn't be happier with the house I purchased, its exactly what I was looking for! "

Douglas Veres Jr. - Annapolis, MD


"As a first-time home seller, I cannot recommend the Gough Group enough. They helped me prepare, answered all my anticipated questions, explained the process, and expertly guided me through from "Coming Soon" to "Sold". Their knowledge of the market, down to the metrics of my neighborhood made me feel like I put my trust in the right agent from the start. I look forward to our ongoing relationship as I find my next home. "

"The Gough team was incredible to work with. Very responsive. The knowledge they brought to the table put my offer above the others. So thankful to have them on my team! 100% recommend!"
Karen Sparks Thomas – Annapolis, MD

“Having sold several homes during my business career, this February 7, 2023, sale was by far the smoothest process, shortest timeframe on the market with a closing above asking price.

My sales experience was effortless from reviewing and signing the sale contract to the actual sale. If I had a question, I had an instantaneous response. We set a target date for the house to go on the market mid-January so I could get a few improvements completed in December 2022 – sanding/refinishing hardwood floors and a new carpet installed. During early January 2023, Lori had a photo shoot and prepared a brochure. The house went on the market January 19, 2023, and an offer was received January 22nd with closing February 7th. A second offer was received January 23rd after the Open House events.

On January 24th, Lori convened a meeting with the team, my wife and me to discuss these offers in depth. This was the first time that I have had multiple offers above the asking price. The team meeting brought several differences between these offers to light. At the end of this meeting, we all agreed with my decision. Our closing on the sale occurred Feb 7th. I cannot say enough about the input from team members.”

Ken Hawes – Crownsville, MD


"When we were ready to sell our home, Lori was the only agent we considered. Her years of experience, knowledge of the market, our community and her extensive network made her the agent of choice. Lori defined the sells process, provided market analysis, set realistic expectation and explained the service we would receive from her and her team (Karin Gielen and Kellie Gough). Throughout the process, Lori and her team were always available to answer our questions or concerns. We loved the text messages with updates and lighthearted comments. She had our best interest at heart. We highly recommend Lori and her team. Their professionalism, friendliness and responsiveness made the selling and buying process less stressful."

Merchelle Halsey – Edgewater, MD

“Lori and team did an amazing job at selling our house! Lori, Karin & Kellie evaluated our property and made recommendations on how to best present and market our house. We like the way Lori did a detailed market analysis and gave us honest advice on market conditions and asking price. The team moved fast to get our house “active”. The photographer was excellent. Karin hosted the open houses and really made the effort to learn about our house and promote it's special features. The team kept us informed on buyer activity and feedback. During the whole process, Lori’s experience and reputation in the real estate community was quite evident. We have used the Gough Group several times in the past and will continue to use them in the future.”

Mark & Stacy Coffin – Edgewater, MD


"Lori and her team just outdid themselves again! She is always confident in her advice because she is so very familiar with the market. That said, her view of my value was higher than we anticipated, and as usual, she was 100% correct. She sold our home for the exact terms she shared with me, better that I could have wished for. I signed the contract and Lori and her team did all the work. We got the best price, the best terms, the best service, and everything she said would happen did. The process could not have been easier, and we could not have chosen a better team. That is why she has been trusted with so many of our properties over the years. I am available to give personal referrals anytime since Lori and her team have earned all our confidence and will continue to be part of our team for years to come.”

David Herzog – Edgewater, MD


"Lori knows the market better than anyone else. We moved from out of state, and she knew exactly what was needed to get the deal done. It was a smooth transaction in a difficult market. Lori and Karin were helpful and responsive, and we know who to call for future real estate deals."

Jennifer Bhagat – Edgewater, MD

"In today’s complex world, you're looking for simple and correct. That was exactly the experience that my family and I received with Lori and her team. The process was quick, and we were able to find the perfect home. It helped that Lori and Karin were so good with kids, too. Lori was extremely available anytime we had questions, and her experience shined even more on closing day when we encountered a sudden problem with the home. She was able to get everything resolved, and still close on the same day! She also sold our previous property, and we were able to close both properties on the same day. Five stars and two thumbs way up from our family!"

Mark Coffin, Jr. – Riva, MD


"Lori is the ultimate professional. Friendly, responsive, accurate, smart, very knowledgeable and experienced. Every aspect of having her as our agent was outstanding. Initial assessment and advice on how to improve our property was spot on. No cost was spared on her part with advertisements in top magazines, papers, and internet. Massive exposure. More importantly she is totally honest, and we always felt she had our best interest at heart. You need someone with her legal and professional skills and insight to make a customer feel safe and cared for. We felt like that every step of the way. It will be a gross oversight not having her in your camp. There can be no doubt that’s she is at the top of her profession and her top 1% designation in the nation is well deserved and accurate. It should be clear that my wife and myself recommend her with the highest level of enthusiasm and with no reservation.”

Francois Aldrich - Crownsville, MD


"Lori Gough was highly recommended by another out of area realtor as an agent having significant knowledge of the Edgewater and Greater Annapolis real estate market area as well knowledge and skills in marketing, home financing, and sales contracting and closings. Lori was one of three agents we interviewed regarding the sale of our home. We selected Lori given her knowledge and expertise as noted above but also because of her extensive contacts in the housing market in the Annapolis market area. Lori knows many of the other local agents and mortgage bankers, appraisers, inspectors, and contractors-which all can be an essential help outside of a pure listing, in bringing a house to market. Lori was extremely professional in detailing our listing agreement and then set our house up for sale success in working with her team to get our home ready for showing. Lori was also able to work through multiple offers to help us decide which offer to accept. Lori answered our numerous questions throughout the sale process. We felt like she was with us every step of the way. If you are looking for the top listing/sales agent in Annapolis, please give Lori Gough a call. You won’t be disappointed, and we cannot recommend her more highly. A true gem. Thank you, Lori!"
