Lori Holden Scott
Lori Holden grew up immersed in real estate. Her family relocated nine times before she was in ninth grade, eventually settling on Mercer Island. Lori's mom, Lou, who she works with today selling real estate, made sure that no matter where we moved we had the best of the best.
Lori was always interested in real estate but it wasn’t until after she graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in advertising and marketing that she became involved in the industry she had grown to know so well.
In 1991, after the birth of Lori's first child, Connor, she transferred to the Mercer Island John L. Scott office and formed a partnership with her mother, Lou, to form The Lou and Lori Team. Their business model is based entirely on knowledge, honesty, trust, and hard work. Lori believes these characteristics have truly helped the team flourish for the past 25+ years! Lori's son Connor joined the team in 2018, making it a third-generation family business!
What clients and colleagues have to say about Lori.
“Lori Holden was such a joy to work with. I could not have asked for a better person to guide me through the process of buying a home on Mercer Island. She took the time to spend a day with me showing me around the island before we began viewing houses, which made a huge difference with understanding location preferences and neighborhoods. She was not only so knowledgeable about Mercer Island itself but also very knowledgeable about house value and what I should expect for a particular price based on where I was looking on the island. She is also not afraid to give her honest opinion if you ask for it, which is something I truly appreciate.”
Happy Buyer on Mercer Island
“After interviewing three agents we went with Lori and are very happy we did. Using her local knowledge, experience and expertise she proposed a creative idea that ended up yielding us an offer that was significantly higher than we had hoped for, with much less work (and $'s) than what we expected to spend. The sale closed a week after we accepted the offer and everything went smoothly. I would absolutely recommend Lori and her team to anyone looking to sell a house on Mercer Island!”

“We bought our house with Lori’s help. Lori is personable, knowledgeable, and dependable. Being from Mercer Island herself, she is very insightful about the local real estate market and is well connected to other real estate professionals, which guided us in choosing our house. Her son, Connor, was extremely helpful during our home inspection, too. Finally, her husband, Allen, diligently assisted us in obtaining our mortgage. He, too, was great to work with-patient and responsive during the mortgage process! They are a super team and we couldn’t be happier with our house!”
