This concierge agent is a quick-minded business manager who also combines the caring attentiveness of your mother with the vivacious ease of your best friend. Business manager/mother/best friend: You don’t hear that everyday about a Realtor, but it is exactly how clients describe Lorie Lytle. She thrives on helping people assimilate into the community, as she remembers the unsettling feeling of moving to a new city so many years ago. Whether you are a Buyer or a Seller, she takes pride in being the “go to person” for her clients. For recommendations from local hair care to healthcare, movers to maintenance, Lorie’s here to help, all while securing the best value for your home.
As when she previously worked in the music industry and, later, as part of various philanthropic endeavors, Lorie has earned great loyalty and enthusiastic referrals among clients. She has an extensive knowledge of the local market, keen instincts about what people desire and a commitment to guiding clients as she would advise her own family. Her level of care lightened by more than occasional laughter, makes every experience with Lorie as enjoyable as it is beneficial.
“A home, whether buying or selling one, is a huge decision,” Lytle says, “and its execution requires honest conversation and hard work. It is exciting to listen to and understand the wishes of clients, then connect them with what fulfills their particular desires. People call me a connector. I’ve always had a knack for meeting people and then linking them to other people or things that they need or want.”
After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with a business degree, Lorie moved to Nashville to connect herself to one of her passions—music. She worked at MCA, Capitol Records, as well as Virgin Records, where she was appointed VP of Publicity. At all these labels she connected the music she loved to the worlds of media, creating professional liaisons and fostering relationships. After having children, she left the record company life to become a stay-at-home mom and community volunteer.
During that time, Lorie continued to use her gift of linking people to their needs. She was instrumental in launching her church’s Orphan, Foster Care and Adoption ministry. She and her husband John wanted to connect others to the joy they knew as adoptive parents. As a part of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Leadership Council, Lorie founded a music retreat for people with intellectual disabilities. This enabled campers from around the country to join with Nashville artists, songwriters, and producers on the campus of Vanderbilt University for music enrichment and research. After the camp lost funding from the federal government, Lorie approached The Academy of Country Music. That initiative now is in its eleventh year of Academy sponsorship. Currently, she serves as Vice Chair of the board for the ACM Lifting Lives foundation. Throughout this time, she also continued to work on special projects for John’s artist management company.
After raising her children, Lorie, transitioned into a career helping others build financial security through real estate ownership. She uses her talents to steer her clients through the real estate process with ease. She makes the needs of her clients, whether first-time homebuyers or seasoned sellers, the top priority.

"I purchased in a seller’s market and am thankful beyond measure that Lorie was my agent. She cared about me, and my dreams, and my buying limitations, and showed patience, perseverance and absolute determination through the entire process. There was never a doubt that she was on my side, had my best interest at heart, and wanted what was best for ME — almost as much as I did! She became far more than an agent, but a friend whom I will have for life!”
"Lorie was like house hunting with your best friend, mother and business manager all at the same time. She listened, provided a variety of options and never stopped looking. And we looked at many, many, many houses. The sweet house hunting partner became a savvy negotiator when it came to the purchase. I felt well represented as she researched city council meetings to get details on a development near the property and held the seller to commitments in the contract. Lorie led a thorough search that was full of laughter rather than stress."
"Lorie Lytle got me multiple offers in ONE day! Her eye for staging and knowledge of the market made selling my property a breeze. Highly recommended!"
"Lorie was so very attentive to detail when it came to both selling our home and assisting us with the purchase of our new home. The pandemic was just beginning so there was much uncertainty about how to sell a house in such a time. She came up with guidelines for how we would show our house - from having a comprehensive 3D video done of our home for the prospective buyers to initiating Covid-19 guidelines for home showings. We thoroughly trusted her guidance through it all. We are so thankful to have had her guiding us through the entire process! Lorie was the best!"

"Lorie went out of her way to take care of things that needed to be done to get our home ready to sell our house. The was on top of everything and was absolutely wonderful. She went beyond our expectations, including the follow-up and greatly exceeded our expectations."
"Lorie knocked it out of the park in a very difficult buyers market and helped us to find the perfect home. PLUS she sold our house for $100,000 over list price! Everything from start to finish was beyond expectations and we highly recommend her."
Becky & Ryan
"Lorie is positive, energetic, stayed persistent and treated me like a personal friend."
