I hired Lindsay as my real estate agent based on a referral from friends of mine (Matt and Jackie Mayerske). I have used other real estate agents in the past, but Lindsay made me feel very comfortable with the sales process especially with the listing price on my home. She showed me several listings in my area and used that as base line to determine the listing price. This was very important to me since
I had a very bad experience in the past in which my house was listed at a price that was not realistic for the market at that time. Lindsay was accessible at any time to answer questions and was excellent in keeping me informed on where we were at in the sales process. She helped me get the best deals with contractors to get my house ready to go on the market. She did not ask me to do more changes than necessary to get the house updated for the market. I really appreciate her working with me on that. Once my house was listed on the market, I had several showings in two days which resulted in 8 offers which totally blew me away. The offers were either at my asking price or more. This totally exceeded my expectations. Lindsay did an awesome job of walking me through each offer. I was very comfortable in our decision on which offer to accept. She kept me updated during the closing process which was moved very quickly and I had a very small list of items to address on my house with the new buyers. Again, exceeded my expectations. You are in good hands with Lindsay and will get the best price for your house. She is also a friend and would absolutely use her services again if I decide to buy or sell a house in the future.
When we first contacted her we had no idea that she would make our relocation process virtually pain free. We were most impressed when she set us up to receive emails of new listings that fit our personalized specifications. It was very helpful and allowed us to preview homes before actually traveling to the Overland Park area to see them in person. She stayed connected to us and continued to keep us motivated as we began the months of looking for just the right home, and she gave us her honest opinion when we asked for it. She kept us focused and never let us lose sight of our goal, which was to find a home with just the right location that we could feel comfortable and safe in. After looking at hundreds of homes over the Intranet, and actually looking at 84 homes in person with her as our guide, we finally found the home that we knew was right for us. Lindsay arranged everything for us and set up the inspections as well as spent the day with us during the inspections to assure that we understood everything that was happening. She even set up the carpet cleaning for us with her own personal carpet cleaner. We feel like we hit the jackpot with Lindsay as our Realtor.
Just days before our closing when we got news from our lender that our loan could not be closed because of an error on their part she never lost her composure, and she rolled up her sleeves and guided us to the person who helped us make the closing happen as originally planned. Her knowledge of this business and her enthusiasm is truly an asset she should be proud of. Thank you, Lindsay, so much for everything that you have done for us, and for continuing to stay in touch. You are more than a Realtor to us now, you are our friend, and there is nothing valued more than a friend.
In January, 2018, I was not looking forward to the task at hand: selling two houses. One was my house that I had lived in for almost 10 years and the other one was my mother-in-law’s house that she had lived in for over 50 years. She had moved to an assisted living house 2 ½ years ago and then finally moved to a nursing home because of failing health. I had not had good experiences with realtors in the past, so I was uncomfortable with the entire house selling process. My fiance suggested that I talk to the agent that sold her daughter’s house several years ago. It was a great experience and the daughter and her real estate agent were still friends. So I agreed to meet this realtor, Lindsay Schulze. Our first visit with you convinced me to sign with you to sell my houses. You helped us develop a strategy for selling my mother-in-law’s house. We would clean it out, leave it as-is and put it on the market. We would then leave it open for visits for 3 days and take offers for that three day period. We also talked about pricing, and you shared the existing market situation and expressed confidence that we could raise the asking price and watch what happens. On my house we talked about my expectations and the current market comps. You helped determine how to stage the house and what to fix and what not to worry about. We talked a lot over the next few weeks as we prepared the house. We finished it up the day before it went on market with an asking price that was higher than what others had told us would happen. Both houses went on the market the same day,
P.S. The reason we called Lindsay was due to our exposure to her last Summer/Fall 2006 when looking at re-sales. More importantly, she was the only agent that contacted us when I mailed a memo and a for sale by owner listing when we tried selling our home by ourselves earlier this year. Lindsay stayed “in touch.”On a scale of 1 to 10 Lindsay was an 11!!!!
