Lorie Black-Imken

In 2015, I got started in Austin real estate after being recruited from a sales position with the LVMH luxury goods company (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy). I quickly fell in love with my new real estate career because it afforded me the ability to use my marketing skills to help clients sell or buy homes. Homeowners who are selling their homes need a consultant and representative with the ability to see the unique selling features of their homes and effectively communicate them in a way that draws in the most qualified buyers. For homebuyers, I learn all I can about my buyer clients in order to best position them in the market and to help them win in situations where they’re competing with other buyers for a home. 

Real estate also allows me to indulge in my interest in economics and urban development. I take time every day to read about Austin area economic data, real estate data, and developments throughout the region. My interests, areas of understanding, and aptitude at interpersonal communication make me an ideal consultant and representative for my buyer and seller clients. 

Over the years, I’ve honed the following skills in real estate: 

  • Home sales
  • Buyer Representation
  • Buyer and Seller Consultation
  • Investment Strategy
  • Relocation Services
  • Listing Marketing
  • Neighborhood Expertise

When I’m not geeking out on Austin area real estate and economic data, I like to volunteer at my church and other organizations such as Meals on Wheels, The Austin Opera Guild, The Citizens Commission on Human Rights Texas, and The Way to Happiness. I also support the Voices Against Child Trafficking Movement and Operation Underground Railroad. For recreation, I enjoy working out, reading, and swimming as well as kayaking and canoeing with my kids and my boyfriend. I love taking any opportunity to experience live music and exploring Austin’s beautiful outdoors with my friends and family. My proudest and most dedicated undertaking is being a mother to my two sons. My family also includes our dog, Luna and our cat, Ella. We’ve called Buda home for over 10 years.

What Clients Say About Working with Lorie

Lorie started as a referred real estate agent and became a close friend. I met Lorie through a mutual friend when she found out I was seeking a new home, out of state, in Austin.

From our first conversation, she and I clicked. Lorie cares a great deal about her clients and matching them with the perfect property or buyer. Her patience, understanding, guidance, and help were critical to making informed decisions simple and fast.

I consider myself extremely picky, I won’t work with just anyone, because real estate is one of the largest investments, and a home is a very important choice to make.

Lorie has been a great find and I thank my friend for referring me to her everyday because I have a good friend now as well.

Her professionalism and kindness are a blessing when you have Lorie in your corner. She looks out for your interests and needs first. I highly recommend her as your new agent.

Lorie is not only super nice to be around but also funny as hell! When it comes to real estate, she is very efficient and didnt waste our time to help us find our home. She duplicated what we wanted and found it and it went very fast after that! I highly recommend her and will definitely work with her again!

I moved from out of state into Texas and needed help finding the right home, with the right commute and all the amenities for my family. In choosing a realtor, Lorie met every one of the needs that I had and so many that I didn't know I had! Lorie also has such a fun, positive outlook and she was so welcoming to us when we arrived to start our house hunt. I gave Lorie my wish list and I have to say that I put an offer in on a house before I even saw it! THAT is how much I trust her and know she understands other people's needs. I hope that other people get to have the same experience that we did while working with her.

Lorie is the best. She worked around our crazy, inconvenient schedule, and talked us through so many important factors we might not have considered. She knew so much about the neighborhoods we wanted to look in, as well as other “sneaky” pockets we hadn’t thought to look at. She found us a perfect home that we were able to custom build in an amazing neighborhood that checked all the boxes, including proximity to downtown, yard size, school districts, etc.! She has also helped friends and family buy and sell, and nails it every time. I cannot recommend Lorie enough!!!!!!!!

Lorie and Clint Anthony helped us find a beautiful rental home to move into with such short notice. We had several items and features we were looking for in our new rental home and they helped us find a home that had everything we were looking for! They are a fantastic team that made the process quick and effortless. We could always count on them for professional advice and guidance throughout the whole process. We plan to work with them again when we are looking to buy a home in the surrounding area.
