making people’s dreams come true. Through her work as real estate agent at Remax, she does exactly that. Lorraine was born in Harrismith and raised in Dundee, KwaZulu- Natal. “That’s why I’m both a Cheetah and a Shark supporter,” she laughs.
“The best decision I’ve ever made, was joining Remax as a real estate agent. By buying your dream home, you’re essentially making your dreams come to life. I love playing a part in that,” she says. Pouring her heart and soul into her job, is what sets Lorraine apart from her opponents in the industry. “I have an absolute love for my job and for my clients. This is where I get to live out my passion – to serve others and help them make their dreams come true.”
Lorraine walks the extra mile for her clients – not because she has to, but because it’s built into her DNA to serve. Her background in education and the banking sector has helped Lorraine in her career as a real estate agent. “It has helped me to understand people and to truly connect with them.”
On a relaxing day, Lorraine loves going for a walk and watching a good programme on television. “I especially love
doing the Parkrun. The sense of community is wonderful.” Her female role model is none other than the elegant Meryl Streep. “She is a beautiful example of a successful, balanced woman. She is fantastic in her job, yet perfectly balances work and private life. ”
Lorraine’s top tips to young females: “Follow your dreams! Don’t be afraid to take risks. No matter what you do – give it your all. Bloom where you are planted.” Lorraine is a firm believer that inner beauty radiates outwards.
