Client Testimonials

Lori and Jayde were great to work with. Both individuals are professional and pleasant at the same time. Together they are a great team that knew what we wanted in a house. My husband and I worked with Lori and Jayde to find our first home. We will be happy to have them again in the future for any house needs. We would recommend both to our friends and family. For first time home buyers, all of our house needs were met and the journey to buying a home was smooth.

- Britt and Arkadia Dickens

As first time home buyer’s we are incredibly grateful we had Lori’s help through out this whole process. She answered any questions we had, explained everything in detail and guided us step by step. She went above and beyond to secure us our home. We cannot recommend her enough!

-Tricia J.

Lori, and her assistant worked with us with positivity and patience for nearly a year as we first remodeled a historic Fairbanks home to sell, then helped us every step of the way through a variety of challenges. When we listed at the end of April 2021, we quickly had a viable offer that went smoothly and fairly to close. There was excellent communication about what we needed to provide. We feel good about the sale all around!

- Karen S.

I decided after a lot of thought to purchase my first house this year when I moved to Alaska. It was a lot to take in and felt overwhelming at first, even when trying to work with other realtors. Lori and Jayde really went above and beyond what I expected throughout the whole process. Lori's assistant Jayde in particular did an amazing job at helping to simplify the process and walk me through house buying as a first time home owner. Their expertise and knowledge of the area really showed throughout the process and I ended up with a house that was exactly what I was looking for and in a location that was perfect for me and my family. If your a first time home buyer, these are your folks 100 percent. I never once felt like they were out of reach and if I saw a place I wanted to view, they did a great job of getting me scheduled and usually within 24 hours! I would recommend these two to anyone.

Outstanding! Being an out-of-state seller Lori and Jayde took care of every aspect of the sale to include helping locate contractors and coordinate getting last minute repairs done. They was responsive to my many questions and were on top of every detail ensuring a smooth closing. Only 2 months from initial listing till closing...I couldn't have asked for more!"

What we thought was going to be a smooth "normal" home sale turned into a nightmare because of the Fairbanks North Star Borough, and issues concerning the North Pole Flood Plains Area. This lasted almost two years before we were finally freed by the Borough to sell the house. Lori and Jade stayed with us through thick and thin and were always there when we needed them. They often went far beyond what they were required to do to assist us in spite of the circumstance, including going before the Borough Assembly on our behalf on at least two occasions. I personally cannot thank them enough for all their hard work, dedication, and the effort they gave on our behalf.

I recommend Lori Peterson 100%. Very knowledgeable and honest. Lori and Jayde helped us out from the beginning and we learned a great deal along the way. It was really a great experience.

 - Gersom and Karla 07/16/2019

 Lori and her team made selling my house a painless endeavor. They kept me apprised of all aspects of the sell and coordinated the closing! Thank you!


 Searching for agents in North Pole, I called Somers Realty. I then talked with Lori and Jayde. After talking and meeting with several agents in town I decided to work with these two. This decision made the entire process timely and worth while. Their honesty and knowledge of realty makes my recommendation to choose them as a team in buying or selling your next home!

 - Andrew & Becca Persen 05/17/2019

Lori and her team were amazing!  They were very responsive to our questions and always quick to respond.  As we were out of town sellers, they checked on the house to make sure progress was being made.  When problems came up, Lori was there to handle everything.  It was a comfort knowing she was there for us and doing an amazing job.  Lori is very knowledgeable about the process and made it as easy as possible.  She was always making us feel at ease that everything was heading in the right direction.  I would highly recommend Lori and her team for all of your Real Estate needs.

  "Lori and Jayde were outstanding to work with. Lori has a great sense of the market, and gave spot-on advice to ensure I was asking a realistic price. I had a cash buyer, so we had an incredibly short time from offer to closing, which required nimble negotiations and immediate responses. Lori and Jayde were always on top of the details, all with a pleasant, low stress attitude. I recommend Lori to anyone!"

 1) 2012 I bought house with  Lori.

2) 2018 I sold my house by same person Lori Peterson.

Ms Lori and Jayde are the most awesome realtors I ever met who works for the Somers & Associates , North Pole. They have pretty good influence in Fairbanks/North Pole area because of their great  selling and buying experience for their costumers. They put my house on the market , It was under contract in 1 day. Everything was done conveniently and I am relaxed now, so I definitely recommend Lori and Jayde as agent to buy or sell house in the area because of their prompt and convenient work ethic Thanks and appreciate your great work!"

 "Recently, my husband and I sold our family home of 24 years. While it was very hard at times, Lori Peterson and her assistant Jayde from Somers & Associates, were absolutely wonderful to work with. Downsizing, remodeling, and staging a home can be somewhat daunting but they were there to give advice and encouragement from the beginning of the process to the very end. Their professional advice ranged from choosing carpet and paint to being supportive and caring through the more emotional stages of letting go. We are more centrally located now and our lives are less stressful. Our new home is light and lively with grandchildren. Overall, the change has been amazing. Life is good! "

 I was out of town while the house was listed, which required a lot of extra work from   Lori and Jayde, her outstanding assistant.  They had to do a lot of coordination with contractors working on house repairs while we were not in town to help out.  On a couple occasions, they personally picked up supplies and deliver them to contractors.  Her team was very responsive on the (many!) questions we had throughout the whole process.  Very nice work all the way around.

 “Lori came in and told me exactly what I needed to sell my house. She did a market analysis, staged my home and in the second week I had a full price offer. She walked me through every step and it was a very smooth process. Thank you Lori!”

 “I am most appreciative of her candid ability to be honest about the pros and cons of the property I am looking at and about the purchasing process in general. I find overblown salesmanship to be distasteful but find her methods sincere and comfortable.”

"Just a note to let you know that my wife and I sincerely appreciate your and your assistant's dedicated effort to get our property at 1085 Grace Ave. sold. Despite the complications of having an absentee owner, a less than professional property manager, and a demanding Government agency, your performance was excellent. "

 Ervin and Irene McIntosh 1/06/2016


"Both Lori and Megan were a pleasure to work with. Being an out of town buyer they helped make the process as simple as possible. We look forward to enjoying our new home."

 Buyer-Tanya 2015


"I liked Lori from the first time I met her. She was so warm and friendly, I felt like I had known her for a long time. She was with us all the way from showing us our house to closing. She really is all about (the buyer in our case). She worked with us and for us through the whole process of buying our home. I would highly recommend Lori Peterson to anyone. She is a hard working Realtor for her clients."

Buyer -11/29/2014 - lpol48


"Lori Peterson is our Favorite Real Estate Agent. We have had her help us purchase two properties here in Fairbanks, Alaska and have had her help us research other properties we are interested in purchasing. We still are planning on buying two more properties and Lori will most definitely be our Realtor. We will even use her to list our property when we get ready to sell. We have used at least three different Realtor's in other states and Lori Peterson was the best to work with. We highly recommend her for you to trust and feel confident that she will take care of you and your needs."

Buyer- 02/07/2014 - barbharris32



 "Lori Peterson is a most caring realtor. She cares most for her clients and will do whatever it takes to accomplish what her clients need from her. She goes out of her way to help and accomplish the sale or purchase for her clients. She puts everything she has into completion of the sale or purchase. I would recommend her for your realtor. Without her we would have given up and never accomplished our sale. She is not afraid to contact whoever you need to get the sale or purchase accomplished."
