About Me

I put you first. 

Lori Cauthen is a certified Broker/Realtor® with Helen Adams Realty. A Charlotte native, Lori’s love for the Queen City and passion for helping others shine through in every deal she brokers. Whether you’re buying or selling, Lori will be your advocate through the real estate process – and she’ll do it with just the right mix of competency and enthusiasm.


The minute you meet Lori you’ll see - her positive energy is absolutely contagious. You’ll love spending time with her as she works tirelessly to ensure your expectations are not just met, but exceeded. Since she was born and raised right here in the metro Charlotte area and is licensed in both North and South Carolina, she is comfortable navigating all aspects of the Charlotte real estate market. She has earned the Strategic Pricing Designation, meaning that she knows how important it is to price homes correctly from the start to ensure her listings are sold quickly.


Lori graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.S. in Science. She spent the early part of her career as a high school science teacher (where she most likely honed her negotiating skills!) and as a personal fitness coach. After taking time off to raise her two children, Lori obtained her broker’s license and became a member of the Helen Adams Team. 


Lori and her husband, Tripp, live in South Charlotte with their two children, and three fur babies – one dog and two cats. Both of her children attend Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. 


When not brokering deals or shuttling her kids around town, Lori volunteers weekly with the Urban Ministry Center and enjoys spending time with her family wakeboarding on Lake Wylie under Carolina blue skies. She’s always looking for the next great book and loves to challenge herself with long runs through the beautiful streets of Charlotte. Ask her for a restaurant recommendation – she has plenty. She cheers for the Carolina Panthers during football season and for her kids all year round.  


Lori can’t wait to meet you.

Market Activity - June 2018
The Vitals
As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
