Lorie and Mike

Lorie and Mike Corica

Lorie learned about appreciating houses from her Grandma Dixie, who was an interior designer. She taught Lorie about appreciating beauty and Lorie inherited her grandma’s love of design. She discovered that real estate was an outlet to expressing that artistic side, and that a side effect of real estate was to make many friends and help people along the way. But, away from the business, Lorie loves relaxing and enjoying life with her husband and business partner, Mike and her two kids.
