Tori Lockard is one of the best realtors we have ever worked with. Moving from out of state is a challenge but when you have a realtor who not only has your best interest at heart but also steps up and is there when you can't be makes the process so much easier. Tori really went above and beyond to make sure we got the house by working tirelessly with the other realtor during a difficult appraisal negotiation; and found a surveyor for us when our mortgage company needed a survey at the last minute to close on time. Even after we closed she has been there for us helping us find companies for landscaping, driveway repair, a vet, hiking trails, amazing restaurants, and more. We are so thankful we got the chance to work with her and would recommend Tori and Lockard Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

I contacted Tori while I was looking for a new home. She went above and beyond for me. I wasn't sure what I was looking for but she found me my dream home. She was available whenever I had questions (it was my first home buying experience so trust me I had PLENTY of questions for her). She even followed up after the purchase to make sure everything was going spectacular. I recommend Lockard Realty whenever I hear someone is looking for a new home or property!

Tori did a great job of finding buyers for my old home. She walked me through the process and made sure I was included in all the decisions. She also helped me find my new home and worked through some issues to make sure everything went smoothly. Extremely satisfied.

Tori is the consummate professional and always presented a pleasant professionalism by sharing pertinent real estate history, neighborhood demographics, and relatable humor.  By every measurement, Tori met or exceeded the expectations of Sunrise before, and during our search for residential and office spaces.  We’ve listed a few of the ways Tori ensured the successful real estate search outcomes: She took the time to orient Sunrise to the Waterloo and Cedar Falls area.  She met with us regularly by “Teams” or “Zoom” to show us prospective houses and office spaces, and described the geography that helped us make informed decisions. Tori always reliably responded to our questions and concerns in a timely manner as well as followed up on "to do" items to ensure Sunrise had accurate details before taking next steps. Lastly, she effectively represented Sunrise requests, preferences, and interests during negotiations.  We highly recommend, without reservation, Tori and Lockard realty for real estate searches.

She is responsive, knowledgeable, and found us exactly what we were looking for!

Michele was extremely helpful in the process of selling our house. She always responded when we contacted her with a question and made sure we knew when an inspection etc. was going to take place. She is a realtor that works for her clients.

Baylea was awesome to work with. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She always showed up on time as well. She answered any of my question when they came up, whether it was in person, over email, or over text. It was always a speedy response. She even bought me a house warming gift. If you are looking for an awesome realtor I would go with Baylea.

We purchased our home with Tori Lockard in February 2023. Although this was our third home purchase it was our first time working with Tori and WOW, she was absolutely amazing to work with. She was knowledgeable, available, and she genuinely only wanted what was best for us. We looked at close to 15+ homes before making a decision and she never became pushy or frustrated with us she was so patient and kind throughout the entire process. I would recommend Tori at Lockard Realty to anyone who is looking for a Realtor—you won’t be disappointed she is wonderful to work with!

I worked with Tori Lockard on the recent sale of my Cedar Falls condo. I have worked with several real estate professionals over the years in several locations and I have never had such exceptional service. Tori is knowledgeable, professional, energetic, responsive, and just a pleasure to work with. My standards are high and she sailed over that high bar with ease - always going above and beyond. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs in the Cedar Valley.

I've had terrific experience with both Lockard Realty and Lockard Inc. At the base of both is a superb leader, Ken Lockard. He drives a culture that expects results based on top-flight service, and he produces it. He's also extremely community and "all stakeholder" minded, so that it's genuinely a win-win for all involved. The people at Lockard love what they do, and it shows in the relationships they build and the results they get for the client, whether you're buying, selling, or in a development project. Personally, I purchased a home, sold another, and entrusted a very large industrial redevelopment project with the team. Bottom line: I recommend this firm. I'd be glad to expand on any of the comments if a client would like to dive a bit deeper.

I have not had anyone be so attentive, especially with me moving from Wyoming to Iowa. Lockard Realty (Tori) took the time to learn exactly what we were looking for and helped us with everything possible. If we ever have any future real estate needs we will definitely use them!

She never steered us wrong she was very straight forward with the home process and being a first time home buyer really helps when you know nothing lol! I definitely recommend her to ANYONE she is a great realtor

Baylea was extremely helpful in finding the right home for my wife and I. We visited several different homes and she never tried to push any on us and was always there to answer questions whether in person or on the phone and we if she didn’t have an answer she would contact the owner or find out from someone who did immediately. We eventually found the home for us and she was vitally important to that.
