She joined Turpin in January 2004 based on the company's superb reputation and the fact that it serves her local neighborhood. "The attention to detail, the sophisticated understanding of the process of selling real estate, and the personal approach given to clients is a good match for the way I do my own business," Lois explains. This diligent approach to doing business was publicly acknowledged when Lois was named as a Five Star Real Estate Agent by New Jersey Monthly magazine multiple years.
Clients and co-workers describe Lois's professional style as caring, dynamic, outgoing, intelligent and detail-oriented. She is a member of the North Central Jersey Board of Realtors where she serves on the Professional Standards Committee.

Previous jobs included positions in surgical nursing, psychiatric nursing, and working with a group of teaching surgeons at Long Island Jewish Hospital.
Lois has been an active volunteer in the community over the years as a board member with the Pingry School Parents' Association and as an assistant kindergarten teacher for religious education at Christ the King Church in New Vernon. She is presently a Eucharistic minister at Christ the King, a Kemmerrer Library volunteer and a board member of the GSWA.
Lois is married with two children. The Olmsteads are residents of New Vernon, having previously lived in Murray Hill. Popular family vacation spots are the Eastern shore of Maryland and Lake Champlain in Vermont. hLois sums up her role as a Turpin sales associate this way, "I most enjoy meeting people, solving problems, and making a good match. Educating people about the sales process and the real estate market is both challenging and satisfying."
