More About Me

Business Philosophy

Lori Progar has been a full time, full service Realtor for over 40 years with Coldwell Banker Realty in Long Grove, Illinois. Serving the suburbs north of the city of Chicago, including Lake, Cook & McHenry county, Lori has lifetime sales in excess of over $200 Million. What makes Lori Progar an amazing realtor is the simple fact that she doesn't think like one. Her motivation has always been to protect her clients' best interests and negotiate the best transaction. As a result, she works with absolute integrity, the highest of morals and values. She knows her marketplace like no other. Clients repeatedly tell Lori that they chose her because she is a consummate professional with strong negotiating skills and gets the job done because she cares deeply. They also tell her repeatedly that she goes above and beyond. These combined attributes have proven to be powerful and have eared her all five star reviews. They make the difference between selling a house fast for top dollar, purchasing a home and negotiating aggressively and finding just the right property to fit their needs.
