We also appreciate your help with the negotiations so that we could reach an agreement with the buyer. You have our best wishes for continued success in the Northern Indiana lakes region!
— Bob & Tammy Macke, Sellers
I can't say enough great things about the Reecer team - Kate, Lynn, Donna and Jan did an outstanding job. We were ready to sell our lake home and many properties had been sitting on the market for a while. We reached out to Lynn with complete confidence she would get it sold for us quickly. Everyone we worked with was extremely competent, caring and exceeded our expectations in every way. We were very impressed with their marketing efforts - something which definitely sets them apart (and especially, your home). Thank you, Donna! We truly appreciated everyone's advice and guidance during the negotiating and selling process. We worked mainly with Kate Leach and we're very appreciative for all of her help and assistance. She was always available and extremely responsive to address all of our questions and concerns. Kate and the entire team were very proactive and always willing to go above and beyond. Thank you, all!
— Sellers, 963 E. Northshore Drive
Very straight-forward and effective to get the job done!

First, thank you Lynn for letting us be Kate's first sale in her new career. It was an honor for us, and she did a great job. If you remember, Alan was not on board when we started this process. And all the way through it, he did not participate in looking until I dragged him to actually see the ones I found online. He was distracted, uninterested and going through the motions. Kate hung right in there with him. I was discouraged, but Kate was not! Kate stayed very positive, and encouraging, and always gave him the benefit of the doubt. And in the beginning, we also did not know what we wanted. I thought on the channel would be fine. Alan said no! He wanted beach! I wanted a house, he wanted a condo! And then there were a million reasons why he didn't like any of those we looked at. So it was truly a process for us to fine tune our wishes! And Reecer Properties stayed the course with us until we figured it out.
Kate was always kind, patient, and quick to find the answers to questions. She is professional at all times, and every time I found another place to look at, Kate was ready and willing to go see it. Kate was always on time, and quick to get back to me with information. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the market. A couple of times Kate mentioned that she had talked to Lynn about a situation, and I appreciated hearing that. I'm all for the team effort!
Alan loves the place! He is so enthused about it. At one point I was stepping back from the sellers, (after the inspection) and he said to stay with it, this seemed to be the right place.
I did do a lot of homework on finding places and most of my information came from Zillow. We did look all over the state of Indiana. I was online all the time. That became burdensome after a while. Not sure there is anything you can do to help people with that process. So I am grateful to Reecer Properties, and really grateful to Kate.

Kate -- Lori and I would like to thank you for all help in the purchase of your new lake home. I had lost all hope for the realtors, I have worked with in the past, and you are truly a breath of fresh air. You listened to what we were looking for and we nailed a purchase in the first day of looking. Then you really worked hard on the closing of the property, I can't believe we closed in 29 days, even with the inspection and all. Hope to be working with you and your company again in the near future.
PS. Stop in and see us, when you can!
— Ben & Lori Gerber
Thanks to Lynn and Kate. Kate has done a great job. She is very thorough and professional. We have enjoyed working with both of you. We are so excited about the purchase of our lake home!
— Suzanne M. Lyon
As expected, Lynn went above and beyond helping us with our purchase. There is no way we would have successfully acquired this home with any other realtor. Reecer Properties, and especially, Lynn, is the best in the business. Thank you also Kate!
