I’m Lori Rousseau and I have over 25 years in the mortgage industry. I have built my reputation on being very accessible to my clients and asking a lot of questions about their needs, and trying to find the loan program that best meets those needs. A native New Yorker, my husband and I have called the Atlanta area home for the past 30 years. We enjoy everything the city has to offer, but with the warm feeling of a small town.
Over the years, I have developed an in depth knowledge of new homes and condominiums. Since joining the Greater Atlanta Homebuilders Association, I have served on a variety of HBA councils and committees. For many years, I have and continue to lead a quarterly Home Buyers Academy. This 2 hour class for potential homebuyers walk them through the process of homebuying, building and financing a new home. I strongly believe that educating a potential homebuyer empowers them to make a better buying decision. I am also honored to serve on the Board of HomeAid Atlanta, the non profit arm of the HBA, which provides transitional housing for temporarily homeless families.
The aspect of my job that I enjoy is connecting with my clients on a variety of levels. I always want them to look at me as their friend as well as their advisor. Having bought and sold a few homes while raising my family, I understand that people’s needs are different depending on the stage of their lives they are in.
