The process of selling a house and purchasing a new one can often be very stressful. My wife Brenda and I have had the pleasure of knowing Lindsay Schulze for many years. Lindsay has represented us through three of our own moves as well as representing the sale of my elderly father’s house. Lindsay also represented each of our three sons with the purchase of their first houses. Lindsay is Special! Her professional and fun loving style has provided us with many great home buying and selling experiences. She uses a “matter of fact approach” that we truly appreciate. No matter what need arises, Lindsay has the answer, or a trusted contact that will fill that need. Lindsay is truly a “one stop shop” for real estate transactions. We love working with Lindsay and she will be our agent forever.
My wife and I have dealt with many realtors over the years and we can say that Lindsay Sierens-Schulze is hands-down the best realtor we have ever worked with. When looking for houses in the upper price ranges you expect more from your realtor. Lindsay exceeded our expectations in every way. She is everything you want in a Realtor, extremely organized, detail oriented, and professional. But, beyond that Lindsay was a joy to work with and perhaps most importantly; we always had the feeling she was on our side and working hard towards our best interest. If you want a great experience working with a realtor Lindsay is the person to call. Thank you so much for all your hard work Lindsay.
We recently relocated to Kansas City as part of a corporate relocation process and had the extreme good fortune of being paired with Lindsay Schulze as our agent. Buying a house is never the easiest experience; however, ours seemed exceptionally difficult. Lindsay was the force behind a successful home purchase! She ultimately pulled us through. We saw over 50 homes as we got acclimated to the region. Lindsay showed much patience as we did this. She immediately honed in on our taste and preferences and gave us mindful and useful advice. Her honesty was refreshing as she helped steer us through the various neighborhoods, renovated properties, and market conditions. As we found a house to purchase, she served as a buffer and advocate between ourselves and the sellers. Lindsay was an immeasurable resource as we went through the inspection and closing process, with her knowledge of home remodeling. For every step of the process, she was extremely organized, proactive, and ready to fight for her clients. Living multiple states away, she actively fought for us in situations where we were less able to do so for ourselves. She was able to expertly diffuse high stress situations and help us arrive at reasonable resolves. Lindsay will be our agent for as long as we are in the area; if we ever move outside of Kansas or Missouri, we will be at a sore disadvantage. None of our past agents took nearly the same kind of care and concern that Lindsay did with us. She is truly the best representative a buyer or seller could have. With sincere regards.
If you’ve ever watched daytime television, you’ve probably seen a few lawyer advertisements. At the end of whatever legal product they’re selling, they will end with the disclaimer that choosing a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based on advertising. I believe this should go for real estate agents as well. Listen up first time home buyers! Unfortunately, there are buyers agents out there that do not have your best interests in mind. It is pretty easy to spin any negative aspect of a prospective house into a positive. You say small, I say “cozy”. You say dilapidated, I say “rustic”. They may also try to convince you an offer is worth taking just to quickly push the deal through so they can get on to their next client. “Enjoy your house; call us in a few years to sell it!” These agents are not necessarily on your side despite their claims and should be ashamed of themselves. The moral of the story is be careful who you sign that agent exclusivity contract with. While I was unlucky enough to have randomly selected the realtor from the previous paragraph, my faith in realtors was completely restored and then some by Lindsay when it came time to buy a new house and sell the old one. Realtors should not be hired based on advertisements or by chance. Look at records, compare with others, get references…speaking of which, here’s mine: Lindsay Schulze works hard for her clients and has the track record to prove it. It’s obvious she loves her work and I have the 12am – 4am emails to prove it. My wife and I met Lindsay through a mutual friend a few years ago while we were looking to move from our “first-time-home-buyers-house” to another place across town. She helped facilitate every aspect of the buying process, from pulling comps in the area and discussing various positives and negatives to developing bidding strategies, as well as post-inspection demands. The work/research she put in would ultimately provide us with enough leverage to get our new home at a great price. Having a realtor that was on our side was a nice change of pace. Of course…buying the new house is always easier than selling the old house. One word of caution, if you’re trying to sell your house she will be honest with you. What is different about Lindsay is that when faced with a difficult sell she will not insist you just put it on the market below value just to get the quick sale (even if that’s what you wanted to do). Instead, she’ll give you a list of things to do and an optimistic listing price which at the end of the day saved me thousands of dollars. While trying to get the house in selling order, whether it was carpet, paint, landscaping, it seemed as though Lindsay always had “a guy for that”. This was good considering how overwhelming it can get when hiring contractors and keeping to a schedule. In fact, to this day, I still use workers she had recommended. One must understand during the time I was selling the old house, the market was not in my favor, so when the eventual buyer made their offer, it was easy to let emotions cloud better judgment and accept whatever they offered. Luckily for me, Lindsay was on my side. Her aggressive negotiating skills are worth whatever you’re paying her. During this process she would calmly reassure me that she knows a bluff when she sees it and to go bold with counter-offers. Just to reiterate: thousands of dollars. I don’t anticipate ever selling our new house we bought with Lindsay’s help; it is my family’s perfect home. But in the event that we do, or are in need of another perfect home, I want Lindsay on my side.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my utmost appreciation and respect for Lindsay Sierens-Schulze as a superior real estate agent. As a first-time home buyer, I knew little about the myriad of steps involved in purchasing a home. Lindsay’s energy and dedication to helping me find the perfect home made the process absolutely fluent. Time and again, Lindsay went far beyond the expected responsibilities of a buyer’s agent, making sure I had the perfect lender, inspectors, insurance, neighborhood, and home—even down to finding the phone numbers of the utility companies servicing the new neighborhood. When complications arose, Lindsay stepped up and took care of every situation. Making herself constantly accessible to my every phone call—regardless of the time of day or day of the week—she not only made me feel as though I were her top priority, but also as though I were her sole client. I recommend Lindsay Sierens as a real estate agent to anyone who requires perfection and steadfast determination.
Lindsay was our Realtor, representing us as home buyers. She was very available for all of our questions and concerns. She even spoke with us while she was on vacation in Colorado! Lindsay appears to have the interest of the buyers (us) as her priority. Even after the sale, Lindsay has kept in contact with us to make sure that all is going well in the new home. We appreciate Lindsay’s energy and enthusiasm. We would really recommend her to anyone needing a Realtor in the greater Kansas City area.
Lindsay is awesome. James and I feel that she and her team has made our buying experience painless and stress free. We told her what we were looking for and she showed us plenty of homes we could not just afford but could really see ourselves enjoying. There was never any pressure to buy, she let us look and decide on our own what we liked best. We also feel comfortable referring her to our friends and family because we know that she will take care of them as well as she did us. WE LOVE OUR HOME!!!!!
We appreciate you making the entire sale and Purchase process an easy and enjoyable one. It was nice the way everything worked out. Thanks again!
On behalf of myself and my wife, I want to extend my sincere appreciation to your fellow team member Lindsay Sierens-Schulze. Lindsay was referred to us by Plaza Mortgage back in June of ’06. At the time, my wife and I were in the preliminary phase of looking for a new house. Lindsay was friendly and affable to us right from the beginning. We expressed interest in a new subdivision in Spring Hill. Lindsay was able to coordinate a conference with the head builder. We had a very good meeting. I could tell she placed a significant amount of time and effort in addressing our needs and concerns. After several weeks of considering our options and financial situation, we decided at the time to pursue this area, or a new home for that fact. When we mentioned this to Lindsay, I knew deep down she was disappointed since she placed quite a bit of time and effort on us. She kept her positive and professional demeanor with us at all times. We did feel guilty about backing out at the time. Lindsay said she understood our predicament. Around the end of ’06 my wife came across another new subdivision that was being constructed in West Olathe. We did not communicate with Lindsay with Lindsay during the later part of ’06; we did however remember to call her when we showed interest in the new subdivision. Lindsay was very grateful for the call. She was able to meet us at the model home within a very short notice. When we decided to move into these new subdivisions, the entire process of selling our home existing house as well as coordinating everything for our new home was one of the most stressful events we ever had to go through. If it wasn’t for Lindsay’s encouragement and positive attitude, I doubt if we could have gone through with this transaction. She was able to address all of our concerns and worries. My wife and I could tell she knew what she was doing. Thanks to her knowledge and coordination, I can safely say the entire moving process went without any significant problems. We did have a few snags, nothing however due to Lindsay. Lindsay did what she said she would do. She returned every phone message and email that was sent to her. She was able address immediately all questions we asked that she knew the answer to. If she did not know the answer, she would find out and let us know as soon as possible. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!! We now have been in our home for almost six weeks. All in all, it has been a very satisfying experience. Once we have all our “junk” put away (maybe by beginning of ’08) we will feel that we can finally put closure on this move. Once again, we want to convey our immense appreciation for Lindsay. Having agents like her is a true testament to the type of organization that Koehler Bortnick is. We will gladly refer her to anyone we know who wants to sell or purchase a home.
Words cannot explain how pleased my husband and I were with Lindsay’s services in assisting us sell our house. We were trying to sell in a very cold time of year when there were many homes on the market in our area of Leawood. Lindsay did a great job getting foot traffic through the house and we did an even better job following up on the Realtor on the other end to find out what their clients liked and didn’t like. Lindsay’s strongest and most valuable asset is her very strong communication skills. We very much enjoyed working with Lindsay and would use her again.
Lindsay was great! This was our first sale and buy. She was very responsive to all our questions.
Thank you for proving, once again, that you are someone we can count on! While we were still in San Antonio, you worked hard to gather information on prospective homes for us and went out of your way to overnight valuable information to us. This enabled us to be better prepared to buy our home quickly upon arrival. Your aggressive and professional manner served us well in preparing an offer, and the end result is a home that we are very excited and grateful to have. We appreciate your professionalism, promptness, and attention to detail as well. Working with you, we know we have a strong advocate in our corner and we will not hesitate to highly recommend you to friends in the future.
Lindsay did an outstanding job! She kept us informed and updated on everything that happened during the sale of our former residence and the purchasing of a new one! We highly recommend her.
We love Lindsay! She was a delight to work with and we wish we could have taken her with us to our new city and have her as our realtor!
Lindsay was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only was she highly knowledgeable, professional, hardworking and reassuring, but she also showed genuine care and concern for our family. She knew that we were not just buying and selling houses, but rather, homes that had been and would become part of our family’s story.
What a great day it was the day we met you on Summit Street! We had no idea what changes were going to happen in our lives in the following two months that day. You made buying our new home and selling our home on Alden Lane a very smooth and easy event. We cannot ever thank you enough. You started out being our real estate agent and ended up being a good friend. Whenever we had a question, you took care of it. You advised us on what needed to be done and when and we will forever be grateful. Since both sales happened so fast, your advice, assistance and friendship meant the world to us. We moved on June 6th and we are happy to say all the boxes are unpacked and it now feels like HOME. You will never have a client more pleased than we are. We will certainly send anyone we know, who has interest in buying or selling a home your direction. We know you will take care of them, as you did us. Please come over and visit anytime. Again, THANK YOU Lindsay for everything you have done for us. We really appreciate it.
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I write this letter to share the positive experience we’ve had with Lindsay Schulze as our realtor. If you are interested in finding a real estate agent that is looking out for “your” best interests and keeping you informed while remaining extremely organized throughout the process, Lindsay Schulze is the agent for you. She exceeded all of our expectations. My family and I relocated to the Kansas City area from North Dakota for a job opportunity. This would be our first move out-of-state from a much smaller city to a large metro area, so it was a bit daunting for us to find a place to live. We had no friends or family here to get us acquainted with the surroundings. Lindsay was recommended to us by my employer, so we took their advice and made a connection with her. We are so glad we did! Lindsay treated us like friends from the very first meeting with her and gave us a tour of several residential areas based on the specifications that we were looking for. My husband and I could tell instantly that Lindsay was a genuinely kind person and was there to meet our needs and lead us through the home-buying process. She was an expert on the Kansas City metro area and was quickly tuned in to what we were looking for in our new home. She kept us informed throughout the entire process, even while we were out-of-state preparing for the transition to Kansas City, she worked hard to assist us. We have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about Lindsay and our experience with her. She made this big transition for us seamless and worry-free. We knew that Lindsay had a handle on things and we could trust her to get us through the relocation process. She is amazing and truly the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. We will be telling all of our friends and family about our experience with her and most definitely use her services again in the future if needed. We love our new home and our neighborhood!! Thank you, Lindsay!
Thank you for all your help in buying our first house. Seamus and I could not be happier with the home. I have provided our recommendation of your work. We are very thankful for all your help in the entire process. You made the first time home buying process as stress free as possible. Neither of us will have any problem recommending you to anyone we know who is interested in buying or selling a home. When my brother and I decided to purchase a house, several people recommend we use Lindsay as our realtor, and now we will be recommending her to everyone we know. Lindsay met and exceeded all expectations, and we could not have been more pleased with Lindsay’s knowledge and hard work in every aspect of the home buying process. She provided excellent, objective advice to make sure we bought the right house. We will be using Lindsay as our real estate resource In the Kansas City area for years to come.
Thank you for everything you have done for our family over the past year. Were just “small town folks” from North Dakota and you found a beautiful home for us here in Kansas. You were able to sell it quickly when we resold less than a year later. Thanks for everything!
Lindsay was amazing. She always treated me like an important client and made the first time home buying process really easy. I appreciated her great customer service and her input. She helped me make a good investment and wasn’t afraid to warn me away from properties that wouldn’t be good first time home investments. I really appreciated her honesty and council on this.
Working with Lindsay was so easy and reassuring. I loved how honest she was with us while selling our home and how persistent she was in helping us look for our new home. The home is not just a place sleep, but a place where my family makes memories and shares our love. She did not take the sale of our home lightly and she worked her tail off helping find THE home that fit all our needs AND wants. I felt confident in her abilities and will undoubtedly only use her in the future! Thank you for EVERYTHING!
Thank you for being our wonderful realtor! I’m glad you hung in there with us. You’ve been incredibly easy to work with and your positive attitude is a gem. We really appreciate you taking on a home in the country and working with us from out of state; something much easier said than done. If we were still in the area, we’d absolutely love to work with you again.
Lindsay Schulze was our agent when we recently purchased. She was outstanding- always very flexible since we were buying in KC but living in NYC and negotiated very effectively. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to my friends and colleagues.
We really enjoyed Lindsay as a person and also an agent. She is full of knowledge regarding her line of work and she is very professional. We had multiple agents through the time we had our house on the market and Lindsay was by far the best and we were very lucky to have her as our agent!
We recently sold our house, using Lindsay as our agent. She is very professional and knowledgeable. She directed us in what was needed to make our home more appealing to a potential buyer. Our house did not have a garage, which typically would have made it harder to sell. Usually, houses without a garage will be on the market for 6+ months, however, with Lindsay’s guidance and support our house sold within 4 months. My sister also used Lindsay as her selling agent. Her home had been on the market, with another realtor, for six months, with no real activity. After her contract expired with the other realtor, my sister chose Lindsay as the agent to list her house. And, after choosing Lindsay, the house sold within a matter of weeks. I especially liked the fact that she used a professional photographer to take the pictures that were shown on the internet. I know, in my experience of looking for a home on the internet, when the pictures were not taken well, I usually dismissed the house from my list. I know that when someone looked on the internet at the pictures posted for my home, they were my house as it truly looked. We also used Lindsay as our buying agent. She looked out for our interests, pulling area information for all of the houses we looked at. She also made us aware of things that would benefit or be detrimental to the resale of the property we were looking at. Lindsay has a vast knowledge of real estate and marketing techniques, which she uses to ensure the best possible outcome for her clients. She was always available for any questions or concerns we had. Whether she is a listing or selling agent, she is the best you could find.
You were amazing to help us buy our home- while we were expecting our second baby girl. We are so happy with the bigger space and Corinne LOVES her backyard. Thanks for putting up with our craziness. You are the best!!!!!
Lindsay sold my wife her house in 2008 and she had a great experience. That, along with Lindsay’s reputation, prompted us to select her for the sale of our rental property. Lindsay did a great job in marketing/selling our rental. This was a huge relief and we can now prepare to sell our current home and upgrade next Summer. Lindsay was an excellent agent and we look forward to working with her in the future!
We’re glad we chose Lindsay Sierens-Schulze as our agent. Our property was unique and had a limited pool of buyers and did take time to find the right buyer. Lindsay handled our issues and helped us through some difficult times during the process. She continued to follow up and was so positive and was always there for us when we needed her. Lindsay is the nicest, most genuine and caring person we’ve worked with and along with her great sales skills, she has the whole package!! I would definitely recommend her!!
Lindsay went above and beyond any expectations we had. Her professionalism and responsiveness throughout the entire process was remarkable. My wife and I couldn’t be any happier with how Lindsay helped us navigate our way through this transaction.
We live in a small town in central Kansas and decided to move to Kansas City to be closer to our children and grandchildren. We were referred by a family member to Lindsay Schulze and were very pleased with our entire process with her. She inquired as to what we were looking for and immediately started sending us emails with possible homes to look at. We would come to Kansas City on the weekends and tour homes that she had arranged for us. Never once did we feel pressure and immediately felt comfortable with her. With Lindsay, you feel the confidence that she will be honest and point out anything with the home that she feels would possibly be a concern or problem. It truly felt like we were looking at homes with one of our own family members. We decided on a spec home that was already under construction and she looked out for us in every aspect of the building process. She even went to battle for us after we moved in, due to a weather delay. We highly recommend Lindsay to anyone who is interested in the purchase of a home in Kansas City area. You won’t be disappointed.
I have worked with Lindsay for a few years now buying houses. Her knowledge, expertise, and professionalism are impeccable. I found 2 houses that were listed with Reece Nichols and I called Lindsay Schulze to purchase both of the homes. I would never buy a house without Lindsay. Lindsay is very thorough and she follows up and is very efficient about getting back to you in a timely manner. Lindsay is always there when you need her and always with a smile on her face! There is no one better in real estate than Lindsay Schulze.
Lindsay Schulze was fantastic to work with again. She gave us great advice in prepping for our sale, priced the home right and marketed it well. She is incredibly attentive to detail. Her response time to emails/texts/calls is so fast. We had 8 offers within 24 hours and it sold for well over ask!! I would definitely recommend Lindsay Schulze.
Lindsay made the process of buying our first home easy! Thank you so much and we will definitely use her for our future real estate needs!
