Yes, I’m still retired…

Update January 2018:

Yep, still retired… But as many of you have found out-I’m still actively licensed and available to answer your questions (past or present).  Proudly, I remain affiliated with Somers & Associates, Inc. REALTORS as a referral-only Associate Broker.  (Sorry, no buying or selling, but I’m still chock-full of often exceedingly useful information.)

For those of you wondering how I spend my days now, I work as a paralegal for a local non-profit.  I find this ironic in an amusing way, as many colleagues over the years have looked at me with a crinkled brow during contract negotiations and stated “Gee, you should have been a lawyer…” (insert choice of amused expression here).   Oh, and over the past few years, I also designed, built (with help!) and live in a tiny house on wheels. Yes, one of *those*.  It’s pretty fabulous.  Call me for tea sometime, I’ll be tickled to show you photos.

One professional change I have made is that I’ve recently chosen not to renew my long-held professional designations of CRS (Certified Residential Speciality) and ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative).  And, although I still hold the e-PRO designation, let’s face it: anyone who doesn’t know their way around on-line tools is a tad behind, right?  So, I don’t feel the need to list that either.  Frankly, the ABR & CRS were pricey to keep active and it was a financial drain with no material benefit to me in my particular situation. Those who call me for answers know that I know what I know, no designation or lack thereof changes that.  So here’s my new “signature line” below:

Have a great 2018!

Office:  (907) 456-7653  Fax: (907) 456-7650
(however… to reach Lori call nine.oh.7.34seven.72fortyfour, sorry no fax!)
711 Gaffney Suite No. 100, Fairbanks, AK  99701 remains my email address…


Update December 2015:
Well it is official, I have closed my own office… and have rejoined the fabulous crowd of professionals at Somers & Associates, Inc REALTORS as a referral-only Associate Broker licensed in the state of Alaska.  This means that I am not doing any listing or buyer representation but I CAN still help you connect with (and let’s be honest: evaluate) a Somers & Associates, Inc. professional who can potentially help you with your real estate needs.  If you are a past client, bring on the “hellos” or questions (if you have any)!

Other than that, Yes, I’m STILL retired.       Cheers,   Lori

Update October 2014:
Thanks to everyone who took interest in my home for sale last September (especially to the wonderful folks you bought it… you know who you are!) I am now officially a Fairbanks “urbanite”, which is odd, yet oddly convenient. My office remains legally open, but functionally closed, so as always: if you are a past client with a quick question or document request, please just contact me (info below).

Notice from August 2012 (updated):
After more than 20 years in the Real Estate Business, circumstances require me to take a medical leave of absence from active real estate sales, consulting and residential single-family property management for the foreseeable future.  Thankfully, the issue is something that can be addressed successfully over time.  Unfortunately doing so will require more time and energy than I can provide while keeping up the tradition of superior service levels for my real estate clientele, and thus my decision.

Effective August 31, 2012, my office is functionally closed.

For those of you who are my past clients and customers: my legal ability to conduct real estate business (answer questions, provide copies of historical data, and also refer you to others who can help you) will remain in place until at least October of 2015 (updated from 2013) (potentially longer), so you’ll have a long time yet to ask me any questions, or to get suggestions on who might be the best person to hire to help you with any of your real estate needs.  Because my office will no longer be open for business, please expect a short delay in responses.

Thank you all, it has been a pleasure working with all of you, and I look forward to hearing from you from time to time, my email address remains the same at loriprice at
