A Little About Me

I was raised in the northern Missouri area from Bethany to Cameron. I moved a lot as a kid. I attended public school until I went into the 5th grade, then started homeschooling. I had the benefit of being able to learn awesome skills like gardening, turning wrenches on our equipment, working construction laying flooring, and also working in a tree business my dad owned. I learned at a young age about a good work ethic. Do everything as if doing unto the Lord. I was self employed for a number of years laying floors and also working a tree business with my dad. I decided to work for a local company building utility equipment. I worked there for about 7 years - and I learned a TON. I wired equipment, mounted bodies on equipment, installed hydraulic components, then became a certified welder and welded for a number of years. The last job I did out there was selling parts and working over phone and email. I developed a lot of relationships with customers, and that was rewarding to me. 

That combined with a childhood of going in and out of hundreds of homes led me to make the decision to start a career in real estate. I get to develop relationships as well as help people find homes! Providing support and developing relationships - that is my biggest reward. 
I am a people person. I love talking and building relationships. I love to learn! If there is a question I dont know the answer to, I will find the answer. I love making people laugh. I am big on humor! 
Fun facts - I was probably the shyest kid you would ever meet - not the case now.
I learned to breakdance as a kid for a STOMP program my homeschool group did! Breakdancing has now evolved into what I call "cripple dancing" as I grow older. 
I love cooking!

Lorrie and her staff listed our home for sale on a Friday afternoon and had an accepted full offer the very next day! From a seller's perspective, how could anyone ask for better results! Lorrie first impressed me when she was the first to call me back after leaving messages with three other Realtors. I knew at that time, that she was sincere, motivated and wanted our listing! If I had another home in the area, there would only be one call to make to have my home listed and that would be with Lorrie at Keller Williams!



Emily came in on what was a pretty small window of time (divorce) to find me and my two kids a "move-in ready" home. After visiting a few homes in my price range and letting her know what I liked and did not like, we were able to look at only homes that hit all the check boxes. We got into a couple  of bidding wars and Emily represented me wonderfully to the realtors/owners. In short order, we were in a house that we love and could not be happier. Never had to call or text twice as Emily was always available whenever I needed her. Could not be happier with the service she provided from start to finish. Plus, I got some pretty cool stuff at closing too! Go with Emily! You won't be disappointed.

Loved working with Lorrie and Emily! Professional, friendly and efficient. The photos Lorrie had done for the sale of my home were amazing, sold my house less than 48 hours after being listed!

Lorrie was absolutely essential to our purchase of our dream home. We were at a stand still and Lorrie represented us perfectly. We have and will continue to recommend her to anyone who wants an awesome advocate in the business of real estate. We love her and cannot thank her enough for all she did for our family. Call her! You will not regret it!



Very friendly, knowledgeable and extremely responsive. Its nice to be able to reach out to someone and get a reply in very little time. If we are ever in the market again, we will head right to her do.

Lorrie Ramseier and Emily Creal were the best to work with throughout the whole process of selling and buying. After having our house listed, Lorrie had an offer within 4 days and Emily worked with us until we found our perfect home. They both were available for any questions no matter what day or night and made us feel like we were their only clients. You can tell the goal with Ramseier Realty is to help people. We had a wonderful experience and will continue our relationship with them.

Lorrie is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with. Her staff and herself are easy to get a hold of and promptly answer any questions. She has been a blessing to myself and my parents that also just bought a home with her help.

Lorrie is the best realtor in town. She and her staff were very helpful from beginning to end. We will recommend Ramseier Realty Group to all our friends!

Words cannot describe how well we were guided through the entire process of selling our home and purchasing a new one. Every detail was attended to and negotiations were professionally carried out. We were always confident that we were well taken care of.

We listed our new construction property with Lorrie's team on May 2nd, 2019. By May 15th, we had our property under contract with a pre-qualified buyer with no contingencies. Lorrie and her team 's performance through the negotiation process was exceptional. We're out-of-town sellers and her team's attention to detail and communication through the procees was terrific. We closed the property last week, which means we listed, inspected, appraised and closed all within thirty days. Lorrie is a true professional and made the whole process very easy. Thank you to the entire Ramseier Realty Group!

I needed a quick sale and Lorrie came through! Property was under contract in five days! A small inspection issue was fixed, and closing went off without a hitch. Having never bought or sold real estate before, I was scared as could be. Lorrie’s expertise and reassurances kept me sane. Sandi’s  Extraordinary organizational skills kept me abreast of “what’s next?” the whole way though. Thanks so much!
