Meet Sean Lorch
Hello and thank you for coming to my site! I help folks buy and sell homes & condos in Naples, Estero, and Bonita Springs, Florida. I also have realtors that I work with who help me cover Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Marco Island. I've been a realtor since 2004, and I also appraised real estate for 9 years. My appraisal knowledge helps me serve my clients more as an advisor and not so much as a pushy salesperson. Nobody likes being "sold," so I am never pushy. I take pride in helping my buyers buy "high & dry" and by helping my sellers realize full value for their property.
Feel free to google my name to see what my clients are saying about me.
I was raised in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago near the Wisconsin border. When I was young, I was obsessed with golf and hoped to make it to the PGA Tour. I ultimately realized that professional golf wasn’t going to happen, and decided to become a real estate appraiser in 2001. After obtaining more than 2,500 hours of experience, I became a certified appraiser. I initially didn't want to become a real estate agent because I didn’t want to be a “pushy salesperson,” but soon realized that I could be a different breed of real estate agent by acting more as a consultant than a salesperson. With this in mind, I went on to acquire my real estate license in 2004, and the rest, as they say, is history. In 2006, after meeting additional education requirements, I upgraded my real estate license to become a real estate broker. I then went on to establish Northwest Suburban Real Estate in Northern Illinois. In addition to managing the office, I built a team of professionals and continued to sell real estate. I sold real estate and appraised until 2011 when I gave up formal appraising so I could focus on selling real estate. In 2015, after 11 years of selling real estate in Illinois, my allergies, combined with a complete and total hatred of cold weather, lead me to sunny Southwest Florida. I absolutely love it here, and I'm proud to be with the area’s top real estate firm: Downing-Frye Realty, which has been in the Naples market since the 1960s.
When I'm not working I enjoy golf, biking, walking, fishing, and spending time with my wife, Lindsay.
