Hello everyone, thank you for stopping by my page.
I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself.
I am from Guadalajara, Jalisco but have called San Antonio home for the last 22 years. This beautiful city is full of culture, history and wonderful people; it is easy to fall in love with it as I did. San Antonio is a unique city because it is big in size, modern in offerings but comes with a small-town feel.
I am a 2006 graduate of South San Antonio High School. I have spent the last 17 years in retail and really enjoyed working with customers. Naturally, my passion for helping people and families make their dreams come true led me to real estate.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my nephews (Damian, Dillan, Parker, and Lazarus) as well as my rescue dogs (Luna and Lucas). I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, swimming as well as volunteering in the community garden and with the youth group. My decision to join JB Goodwin was largely driven by their desire to help people through the home ownership process, a key milestone in the life of so many. I am proud to join their strong, motivated and dedicated team. If you are looking to buy, sell or lease, allow me the opportunity to help you accomplish your goals.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to working with you.
I don't think I can express enough how grateful I am for Lorena! I can confidently say that without her I wouldn't be a homeowner right now. Lorena educated me on my capabilities as a buyer and found pathways to make this possible for me. Where there was a closed road, she found us a speedy detour. From showing me listings to being available in such short notice, she was there in a heartbeat. It was her on-the-go demeanor that made us finding this gem of a home. Lorena listened and asked questions after every showing to make sure we'd quickly find my forever home. She believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. Above all else, Lorena was inclusive to the LGBT community, which I belong to. Being transgender and dealing with those who don't yet have an understanding about pronouns and gender identity can be discouraging. But Lorena went above and beyond making me feel valid for who I am, as well as taking care of all pre-introductions with everyone I would eventually have to interact with so that nobody would deadname me or misgender me. She took all that awkward hard work and did it herself just so that I could feel good. It is believed that less than 2% of transgender people in the USA are homeowners. I'm glad that with Lorena's dedication to her craft and commitment to the LGBT community, I am one more! – Isaac Garcia
My husband and I purchased our first home with the help of Lorena. She is an amazing realtor, she is very patient, reliable, and makes you feel comfortable. She also made the entire process extremely simple and she was always there to answer our questions. We also got helped from Sergio with the entire financial process, which was extremely helpful. We didn’t haven’t to worry about much, they both were amazing. I would highly recommend them. We are extremely happy with our new home! Thank you Lorena and Sergio for all you did! – Anna Rivas
Lorena Casteñeda Lorena was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had several issues in our home buying process including a seller who was not providing enough information and some misunderstandings on our lender’s part. Lorena helped us work through all of those issues with a positive attitude, a great work ethic following up with our lender, great availability (even after hours and on weekends), and great respect for safety precautions during the pandemic. She also helped us to get the house we wanted while also helping us to look objectively at the pros and cons of all the homes we looked at. Most importantly, we always felt listened to and that she wanted to get us the best home for us, even though a lower price would mean a lower commission for her. In short, we always felt she had our best interests in mind. – Alejandro Carrillo
Thank you so much for helping me and my family find a home. I have never met someone so sweet and helpful. She answered any questions I had and was very patient with my requests. Thank you once again. – Karla Mendez
