Lora Pfohl is a native of Upstate South Carolina, living in Greenville with her husband and children for the past 22 years. She has more than 20 years of marketing, advertising and public relations experience working with companies such as Michelin North America, IMI Resort Marketing and Sales, and the South Carolina Children’s Theatre, to name a few. While with IMI, she successfully lead teams to promote and market luxury homes and resort properties in Charleston and Beaufort, South Carolina; Breckenridge and Silverthorne, Colorado; Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas; Park City, Utah; and Bend, Oregon.
Lora is an active member of the Upstate community, serving in various roles at her downtown church, playing tennis, participating in book and theatre clubs, as well as being the mother of three. Most recently, Lora and her family expatriated to Clermont-Ferrand, France for two years. During their time abroad, they explored and traveled to 18 different countries touring Europe, Africa and Russia.
After moving back to Greenville, Lora joined the GreenvilleOne team at The Marchant Company. She utilizes her marketing expertise and experience of her own international relocations to assist her clients in properly listings and buying their new homes, particularly welcoming individuals moving to or from Greenville from out-of-state or internationally with a personalize approach and custom lifestyle location planning.
While I was growing up (right here in Greenville), my mom was always inviting folks over for “kitchen table conversations,” as she called them. She served warm, thought-provoking conversation right along with her delicious meals. My family taught me the value of listening, communication, and relationships.
I began working in real estate in 2005, guiding people through the process of finding the perfect place to call home. Over time, I learned not only how to get clients into their new homes but also out of their existing homes, in the smoothest way possible. And this required me to make good use of the skills I learned from those kitchen table conversations when I was younger.
Real estate consulting is communication. It’s listening to clients to understand what makes a house a home to them. It’s communicating with all the people involved in the process—structural engineers, HVAC contractors, electrical workers, photographers, stagers, mortgage lenders, closing attorneys…. It’s knowing how to advocate for clients effectively. Knowing how to keep everyone informed at all times, manage expectations on all sides, and keep the process moving smoothly. Real estate consulting is also project management, something I learned while working for Project HOPE Foundation, a nonprofit serving children with autism and their families. I learned how to organize and manage all the little details that can make such a big impact if something falls through the cracks. My clients know that they don’t have to worry about what happens when—I manage everything for them.
Ultimately, real estate consulting is a relationship built on trust, and I take that very seriously. I believe in transparency and commitment to my clients. I’m always thinking about how I would want my own family (a wonderful wife, daughter, and three sons) to be treated. One of my clients recently wrote me this: “We feel as though we’ve gained a friend for life.” That made my day. I love helping people. That’s what keeps me working day in and day out.
