Hello, my name is Lori Kraft and I’m the Managing Broker at Innovative Property Solutions.
Prior to becoming a Real Estate Agent, I worked for one company for 21 years. The culture of this company was education and customer service. My experience throughout that career helped shape the businessperson that I am today. My past positions include Sales Associate, Administrative Assistant, Buyer, Regional Merchandise Support Manager, Inventory Analyst, & Department Specialist.
I became a realtor in 2005 and immediately emerged myself in Education. I have taken great efforts in educating myself and earned the Graduate Realtor Institution (GRI) designation in 2006 and then my Broker License designation in 2010. From the beginning I wanted to be involved with our community as well as contribute in some way my passion for education. I served on Board of Directors for the Bullhead City/Mohave Valley Association of Realtors as Chair of the Education Committee and several Director positions as well as and including President Elect and President.
These are exciting times with great challenges and great opportunities. I am confident that my experience, attention to detail, love of education, and joy of customer service will serve you well. I would be happy to help facilitate the purchase or sale of your home.
My whole working life has been Customer Service and I like helping people. I was raised in Southern California and fell in love with the Bullhead City/Laughlin area since I started vacationing here in 1994. I always knew I would make the area my forever home and I did in 2018!
Becoming a Realtor® three years ago was the right move for me. I’ve helped many Sellers sell their home and helped Buyers find either their vacation home, or their forever home too. As my career advanced, I found my stride working with Buyer's and Seller's of a sleepy retirement/tourist town. I am an expert in helping my Clients achieve their Real Estate goals and being their advocate throughout the whole process. I am licensed in Arizona and Nevada, so I can help you on both sides of the beautiful Colorado River!
I live in Bullhead City with my boyfriend Mike Warr, also my Real Estate partner, and our 2 fur baby's Harley and Kawi. In my free time, I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson Tri-Glide motorcycle, seeing live music performed, hanging out with friends & family, traveling the country, and visiting Bearizona as often as I can.

"Rest assure I will listen to your needs and wants and do my best to help you achieve them."
have been doing real estate for the past 11 years. I have represented buyers and sellers. A part of that time, I also worked directly with Fannie Mae and sold more than 200 REO's. Prior to working as a Real Estate Agent, I worked on the mortgage side for 7 years doing residential home loans. I feel I can better help my clients as I have worked on both sides of the transaction and know the steps to close a transaction successfully and problem solve any issues that may arise.
My family is number one in my life. I am married and have 3 wonderful children. Being in real estate has given me the freedom to be the hands on mom that I want to be while being able to successfully serve my client's needs. I love helping first time home buyers and families find the home of their dreams and then turn it into reality.
