William B. Fooks 

I have been in real estate full time since 1966. I progressed to becoming a selling manager for Yorktown Associates from 1970 until 2000. I managed up to 52 associates and our office became one of the largest real estate offices in Rhode Island. 

During the 1980's, I was elected President of the Kent County Board of Realtors for two consecutive terms and served on numerous realtor boards. 

Along with several other associates, we became the Fooks Team in the 90's to help serve my client base while still with Yorktown Associates.

In 2000, our company, Yorktown Associates, was purchased by DeWolf Realtors and I became leader of a group of dynamic individuals. During that time, our company was bought out by Coldwell Banker. 

The Fooks Team has since grown to 10 individuals and my position remains as an active listing and selling broker on the team. We have been recognized as one of the leading teams in Rhode Island. 

I am also proud that over 14 people have earned a net worth of at least a million dollars while associated with me as either their manager or as a member of the Fooks Team over the years. 

It has been very fulfilling to be in the real estate business.

Sandie Heilmann

I enjoy my careerfor I have been blessed with many great relationships. After a long career in finance, helping families obtain homes, I moved into real estate where now I help them find or sell their home.

Ninety percent of my transactions are by referral. I put myself in their shoes and with all the ups and downs of the process, I encourage and ensure them that we will close, and we always do. 

I have been in Real Estate long enough that now I am selling homes for people that once I helped them obtain. I learn everyday that when you go above and beyond, clients come back to you. 

I try to please not only my client but also Christ with my work ethic. Every home sale or purchase always works best with folded hands.

It would be my pleasure if you would... "Let me walk you Home."

Lorri Rossi

I was the loud football/cheerleading mom that attended every game, cheering on my boys and daughter who you may, or may not have wanted to sit too close to in the stands. If you ask any of my clients, they will probably tell you that not much has changed since I do the same for them.

For over 20 years I have been putting my clients needs first and cheering them on from our first meeting to the closing table. Buying a home can be stressful and intimidating, but with knowledge, guidance, reassurance, and some cheering on your side it can be a pleasurable, exciting experience. That is my goal to give to you. 

I take pride in myself in offering superior service and have won many awards for this, but honestly it means nothing to me without my client’s satisfaction and support. This is the reason that most of my business derives from past clients or referrals from them. 

A recent client of mine put it like this: 

“We would recommend Lori without reservation. She is tenacious, and cares about getting her clients results. When she helped us buy our starter home, she kept our expectations grounded and focused on the details that mattered. She also reminded us when we were looking at things that didn’t meet our needs that we might want to look elsewhere, and understood us so well that within moments of stepping into a house tour she knew when we wanted to exit, without us telling her.

Lori is tough as nails, and if you are a buyer or a seller, you need an agent who will be your advocate. She is funny and sincere, and does not hold back if it benefits her client. She is the person you want working for you.

Lori also has relationships, and don’t underestimate how helpful it is to have an agent that has worked with various attorneys and repair professionals and build positive relationships that allow information to be shared and the process to move forward.

If you want an agent with a sense of humor who just “gets it”, is accommodating, uncompromising in getting you what you want, and is above all, honest, consider Lori Rossi to be your realtor.”

-Emmanuel and Ashleigh E.
