About Lynn Reecer
A native of Dayton, Ohio, Lynn earned a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from IU’s Kelley School of Business in 1984. Upon graduation, she was hired by Xerox Corporation, where she spent seven years with Xerox in various sales positions in Chicago, Dallas, Indianapolis, and Columbus, Ohio, achieving the President’s Club level (top 10% of sales force) most years.
Lynn married Fort Wayne, Ind. native, Mark Reecer and later moved to Fort Wayne in 1993 when she chose to leave the corporate world and stay home to raise her three children. During her tenure at home, Lynn initiated volunteer leadership roles, seeking projects that filled a void in the community. In 2000, she secured an $80,000 fundraising initiative to build a playground for a Fairfield Elementary, an urban public school, while regularly volunteering in a kindergarten classroom.
In 2001, Lynn co-founded Aboite New Trails, Inc. upon the death of a close family friend and cyclist killed by an impaired motorist. She recruited a 16-member board of directors and was selected as president of the board in 2003, a position she held until 2011. Under Lynn’s leadership, Aboite New Trails raised over $12 million and built 20 miles of new bicycle and pedestrian trails throughout Aboite Township in southwest Allen County, connecting communities, neighborhoods, and 33,000 area citizens to a safer and improved quality of life. In 2011, these new Aboite Trails were connected to the 20+ year-old Fort Wayne Rivergreenway network, now merged together as the Fort Wayne Trails, a 50+-mile continuous bicycle and pedestrian trail corridor across Fort Wayne, serving over 300,000 residents and visitors.
As co-founder and president of Aboite New Trails, Inc. for nine years, Lynn and the volunteer group earned several national and statewide awards for their achievements, including:
- Indiana Achievement Award (2010)
- National Trails Award (2010)
- All-America City Award (2009)
- Oprah’s Big Give ABC affiliate winner (2008) — Out of 90 cities in the U.S., featured on Oprah Winfrey Show by growing Oprah’s $10,000 contest seed money to over $1.2 million for Fort Wayne Trails.
- At the request of the Fort Wayne mayor and Allen County commissioners, Lynn led the merger committee in 2010 to form Fort Wayne Trails, Inc.
In 2010, Lynn co-founded Reecer Properties, Inc., a local, boutique real estate firm, and she is now the sole owner. The company is based on a team business model of functional experts providing white-glove service and exceptional sales results for real estate clients. Lynn excels at leading the sales team and company from a vision standpoint, assisting sellers with pricing and staging to sell quickly for the highest price. For buyers, Lynn offers a consultative approach to transitioning her clients to the property they are seeking by asking pertinent questions and “matchmaking” them to the best possible property. For sellers and buyers, she offers creative and effective negotiating strategies to achieve the best possible results.
In 2017, Lynn acquired a majority interest in the Brookwood Cabinet Company after the untimely death of her friend and its CEO. She also launched Northeast Indiana Talent Attraction, Inc.—a non-profit that provides personalized recruitment tours for the region’s talent attraction efforts. Both projects are passions and represent Lynn’s commitment to local entrepreneurial, servant leadership, and talent growth initiatives.
Real estate sales highlights include:
- In 2013, she had the leading residential agent team in northeast Indiana in sales volume, out of 1,100+ agents and teams
- In 2014, she had the leading agent team in the Indiana Regional MLS, out of 116 counties and 4,000+ agents and teams

What customers say about Lynn Reecer
Our experience was very good. They are very professional.
— Fred & Karen Allina
Our personal experience has been excellent! They have gone above and beyond our expectations in meeting us at the property and sharing thoughts on how to make a smooth transition!
— Brian & Jennifer Backstrom - Buyers, 1415 W. Washington Blvd.
Kate and Lynn from Reecer Properties were a pleasure to work with! They truly made the process of buying our first lake house easy and enjoyable! They were timely, detailed and exceptional. Thank you, Reecer Properties.
— Jill Casey & Darrel Scott - Buyers, TBD N Cedar Point Low Road
We could not have had a better experience with the Lynn Reecer Group! As first-time home buyers, our REALTOR Joelle was amazing! She went above and beyond with making sure that our experience was great. We do not think that we could have had the same experience buying our house without Joelle and the Reecer group. The whole group made it super easy for a first-time home buyer!
— Kyle & Sarah Allison, Buyers
We enjoyed the experience of working with Lynn and Kate. There was very good and thorough communication. Reecer Properties is a very professional and knowledgeable organization. We would highly recommend Reecer Properties to anyone who has the need.
— Sellers, Lake Wawasee
Lynn Reecer & team are very professional, highly responsive & get results. They have closed 2 residential property deals for me in the past 12 months. Thank you Lynn & Reecer Properties!
— J. & D. Harter, Sellers, 7515 Covington Hollow Pass
Excellent. Very responsive and extremely helpful. Very timely in their responses. They are unique and tailored toward the buyer and seller.
— Linda Han & Stan Muterspaugh – Buyers, 2125 Timberdale Court
The best thing I liked was the "layered effect" with how each person on the Reecer team worked together to help us understand and eventually achieve our dream home! Their attention to detail is unmatched! They truly made us feel special and that our concerns matter. Joelle was such a joy to work with. Her enthusiasm was contagious!
— Mike & Karen Browning, Buyers
So pleased with your company having to deal with a non-cooperative tenant and still getting the job done! Thank you all so much!
— C.W. - Seller, 6025 Sawmill Woods Drive
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
Reecer Properties sold our house in less than a month. The follow-up & help through closing was outstanding. I want to thank Cory for everything he did to make this sale possible. He is the glue for Reecer Properties and all his efforts did not go unnoticed! We appreciate him and everything he has done for us more than words can express! Thanks again Cory, you are amazing!
— Tim & Vicki Yoder - Sellers, 2125 Timberdale Court
Lynn, Thanks so much for getting the cottage sold. You and your staff did a really great job! I truly appreciate all of your efforts in getting this successfully across the finish line!! I know you had to do some extra things and I sincerely do appreciate your efforts in ensuring that the deal would close. You did a wonderful job and no doubt I’ll refer you to all.
— G.H., Seller - 11215 NE Wawasee Drive
What did you like about Reecer Properties? Everything. Efficiency-kindness, competence. This was an incredible experience!
— A.C., Buyer - 11215 NE Wawasee Drive
Fastest turn around – about 1 day to sell. Everything was handled very professionally. We could not be happier with our experience. We would definitely recommend Reecer Properties to others.
— Sellers, 1221 Timberlake Trail
The staging and photos of my home were fabulous. Contacting for showings & feedback was prompt.
— Seller, 2322 Turnberry Lane
Outstanding team approach maximizes communication for a stress-free transaction.
— J&K Goebel, Sellers, 6617 Quail Ridge Lane
— J.G., Buyer, 6617 Quail Ridge Lane
When we decided to downsize we called Lynn Reecer to help us with the process. We did not have a home to move into, but decided to put our house on the market anyway. Lynn and her team were extremely aggressive in marketing our current home, while tirelessly making every attempt to find the next house that met all of our criteria. Lynn and her team, especially Cory Allen, were extremely knowledgeable, energetic, friendly and easy to work with. They did an outstanding job of communicating even the smallest details with us at every turn. As it turned out, our home received a good offer the same day our dream home came on the market. Reecer Properties made both the sale and purchase happen at lightning speed, and they choreographed both transactions flawlessly. It was so easy. We are now living in and loving our new home, and have Reecer Properties to thank.
— K. & K. W., Sellers, 2510 Sycamore Hills Drive
I like how everyone works as a team and has their “specialty.”
— K.G., Seller, 15213 Powderhorn Lane
Great people, positive experience, good service.
— David & Catherine Fruchey, Buyers, 2801 Ambleside Way
It was our pleasure to work with Lynn and Kate. We appreciated their flexibility in answering all of our questions and their professional and friendly way of doing business. Selling our lake cabin was made easy with Reecer Properties.
— P. & K. Turner, Sellers, 266 EMS C28
Reecer Properties was very comprehensive in their approach to selling my lake home. They made several specific suggestions to improve its show-ability. They were extremely fast communicators. They were also a valuable resource when it came to who would be the best to do any work on my home.
— T.W., Seller - 339 EMS T-26 Lane
You should start a real estate school and teach the way you do it! The whole process was personal and professional -- staff was exceptionally responsive and helpful -- had confidence in everyone we worked with --- would highly recommend Reecer Properties. What a contrast to the experience we are having on our purchase side in another city.
— A & K Likeness-Myers, Sellers of 6805 Covington Creek Trail
Nice photos and description of our house. The property was listed on MLS very rapidly. Nice, courteous and professional. We wish we had listed with Reecer Properties initially! Cory is worth his weight in gold! Excellent at what he does and returns calls immediately.
— Sellers, 10526 Glen Arbor Pass
We are so excited! This is exactly why we went with Reecer Properties!!! Lynn and her team are awesome!
— J&D, Sellers 2310 Cedarwood Way
I loved all of the professional extras. I felt 'nickeled and dimed" by another real estate company, and they couldn't compare to Reecer Properties...and they didn't sell my house. Your service was excellent in every aspect and I am grateful to you for selling my home. It was not an easy house to sell (two bedrooms), but you did it!
— L.S. - Seller, 1514 Hadley Rd.
Reecer Properties offers a professional team approach that we had not seen at previous realty companies. From listing our home to the final sale – we felt our home was given great attention. We were especially impressed with the marketing of our home and the sale negotiation process.
— W&H Anderson, Sellers -2730 Covington Manor Road
Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful, smooth process the sale of our home was. You and your team were knowledgeable and communicative. We cannot express our gratitude to your office enough. I would recommend Reecer Properties to everyone! You truly are #1!
— Mark & Christy Peterson
Reecer Properties provided excellent pre-sale preparation with an expectation of how the process of selling my home would proceed. There was very good communication during the sale process and showings, and plenty of help preparing the house and how to present it properly.
— M.S., Seller – 1412 Shingle Oak Pointe
We had a nice experience in purchasing our lake condo and have loved being up there. Thanks again Lynn!
— Brian & Denise Ploss, Buyers
Love the description of my home. So far the level of service your team has provided has been outstanding. There is no doubt why you are so successful. Here’s to it selling quickly!
— Sellers of 11731 Hemingway Bay
The frankness of the market, giving us the options available on offers. Cory was very responsive, always called back & answered questions. He kept us up to date as other realtors showed the house.
— J. & P. Ronner, Sellers
We were very pleased with Reecer Properties & highly recommend them. Lynn was always willing to go the extra step to get our lake home sold. Great help in staging & always easy to reach by phone, text, or e-mail.
— Diana & Ron Winkle, Sellers
We thank Lynn and her associates at Reecer Properties for selling our Lake Wawasee condo. Your marketing process worked well and produced a faster than expected sale Kate did a nice job with the showings and handling of the details. 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
Very straight-forward and effective to get the job done!
— Lee Cheng, Seller
As much chaos that our lives were at the time of closing, The Reecer Team made the process so easy. Cory was great throughout the process.
— Courtney & Eric Roller - Sellers, 11009 Wilmington Court
We are extremely happy that we sought your help to sell our home in Fort Wayne. You have assembled a very knowledgeable customer-friendly team to help us throughout the selling process. In particular, Cory stretched himself to alleviate our fears by answering all our repeated questions with patience. He was very prompt in returning our calls and text messages. We appreciate him very much. We sincerely appreciate & thank you for everything!
— Venkat & Kini, Sellers
I was extremely pleased with the whole process, and felt that Reecer Properties was there every step of the way. The photography was fantastic, which drew in potential buyers and a quick sale. Reecer Properties obtained the contractors and guidance when I needed repairs done for the sale -- even sending someone to pick out the paint color. I would highly recommend Reecer Properties, and if I should need a REALTOR in the future, I will choose Reecer Properties. They did a fantastic job!
— Seller, 6911 Corline St.
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.
— Suzanne Lyon - Lake Home Buyer
Jan - Thank you so much for being such a great agent! You have been very helpful (and patient) with us through this huge process. Please let us know if you need anything at all and thanks again for being the best choice for selling our house.
— D. & J. Bell, Sellers, 11465 NE Wawasee Drive
As we settle into our new home, Michael and I often talk about how grateful we are for each of you and everyone at Reecer Properties for the great job you did of selling our home. From the first time James came to meet with us when we were deciding on a realtor, we felt confident in choosing Reecer Properties. We appreciate so many things about our experience with your company: the research done in pricing our property, the incredible photography by Gail, your willingness to consider and incorporate our input in the write-ups and your beautiful promotional pieces, your "outside the box" approach in utilizing specialty websites and marketing, etc. etc. etc. From the times Lynn thoughtfully listened to us when we were apprehensive about the sometimes unpredictable selling process, to the incredible job James did of filtering through buyers to only bring those qualified through our home (thank you so much for that!), to the amazing/friendly/skillful/accommodating job Cory did of working with us on so many details from beginning to end.........we are so incredibly grateful for you all.
Whenever we called in and talked with anyone in your office, or stopped in with questions, everyone was wonderful to work with. Donna felt like a friend by the end of the process, after so many times of taking our calls and doing anything she could to help us in her enthusiastic and friendly manner - your whole team was like that. In the end, not only did you get the job done, you did so while all the while being incredibly focused on watching out for our financial interest; you are amazing at that.
We could go on and on, really. Thank you all so much for the amazing job you did for us and the wonderful summer we are having now..........in large part because of you ��. We are so very happy that we listed our home with Reecer Properties, and we will never forget you. The work you do is amazing. Your patience, persistence, and many skills benefit your many clients. Thank you all so very much!
PS - and WOW.....The Wall St Journal article......we will always cherish that experience. Thank you ��.
— M. Post & M. Nelaborige, Sellers
Our contacts with everyone at Reecer Properties were awesome. Everyone was very helpful and professional. James, Lynn, Gail, Cory and Christy were all wonderful. They are a team of experts. We would highly recommend Reecer Properties to anyone.
— Randall & Colleen Dodge
I have used Reecer Properties for 6 transactions and each time we have had a smooth, seamless, uncomplicated process. I would recommend them to anyone in the home buying or selling market without reservation.
— D. Roth, Seller
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!
— Doug & Debra Lance
Relocating to Fort Wayne from Columbus, OH in 2014 was tough for us. We were leaving our long-time home for a new city, buying our first house, moving away from family, and doing it all during the holiday season. This major life transition would be very difficult for a lot of people, but was made so much easier by Lynn Reecer.
Lynn took the time to get to know us, including our needs, tastes, styles, and hobbies. Lynn’s initial tour of Fort Wayne blew us away. Not only did she show us an open and honest look at our new city, but she made us feel so much more comfortable with the decision we were making. Having that support was huge as we decided on our new future.
— The Mells, Buyers
Thank you and your team for your professionalism throughout this whole selling process. I feel as if my house was priced fair and your recommendations for staging really set it apart. The photographer who took the pictures did a phenomenal job at showcasing the home and its features. I am positive that's what led to the quick sale of my home.
I really look forward to this next step, the buying process, hoping it will be just as smooth.
“We cannot say enough about the professionalism, timeliness, and tenacious spirit the Reecer Properties team had during our lake home search. They get it! Thanks to their patience and encouragement we continued to look at properties until we found “the one”! Lynn kept a close eye on the market and knew what we were looking for and when our home became available we were able to react quickly because of her team’s help understanding the market. This is our 4th transaction with the Reecer team; they have sold homes for us in the past and exhibited the same commitment and professionalism during those transactions. Their marketing is unparalleled! They are TOP NOTCH all around!”
— The McBrides, Buyers
A huge thanks for all you did to help sell our home. Individually and as a team, I couldn’t have asked for more. There were a few hurdles along the way but with your support, we made it to the finish line! From your initial advice to the final gift package, your professionalism and attention to detail is superb. I never would have picked the wall colors that Lynn chose but once I saw them on the walls, I was instantly in love! Your advice was always ‘spot on’. Please tell your entire team that we are very appreciative of their willingness to help – what a fantastic group!
— Amy & Carl Kelly
Thanks to Lynn, James, David and Cory for making selling our home of 24 years the easy part of making the move to a new home.
— Doug Manck
The Reecer team is definitely a first rate operation. Not only do they have competent people on the front line, but their support staff is very responsive and helpful along the way. We enjoyed working with them.
— Satisfied Sellers
I would/will strongly recommend Reecer Properties in the future. Kathy and Lynn were very professional and helpful listening and finding a home for me and my family. Staging our home through Pam and Kathy helped sell my home in just 2 weeks!
— Matt Creech
Kelly and I are so happy to have chosen to work with The Reecer Team. All of you did a fantastic job and it has been a pleasure working with you. I really appreciate all of the communication and coordination. I have already shared our great experience with several people.
— Rich Heller
Byron and I discussed several times any feedback we might offer that would help to critique the selling process. Honestly, we could not think of anything negative to say, only that we did not contact James, initially, soon enough!
I feel the one thing that the entire Reecer team does better than any other realtor, is your attention to detail. From the original photos taken, to receiving feedback, to expediting any process, you (the Reecer group) excel at that. There was never a time that I felt you were too busy to assist us and I do realize you were working simultaneously with your other clients! Your work is innovative and creative and I see why you can count your group as one of the premier realty firms around. It was apparent that our goal to sell our home…was your goal, also! Thank you again for all of your help with the entire process.
— The Brauns, Sellers
I really liked the friendly, competent people at Reecer Properties! You have very good systems in place for each step along the way.
— Nathan & Emily
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
Your services have been very good. Kathy has been a great idea person for interior decorating help, as has Pam. Bottom line is that we have slowly rebuilt the place to the way we like it. Your help, and that of Kathy, Pam, Jon, and others have been super.
— Fred L. Rasp, MD, FCCP
Great job selling our house. All was great. Wonderful!
— Bill & Millie Devos
Listing our family cottage with Reecer Properties provides us the security and comfort in knowing we have a professional team of dedicated people who put our interests first. The timeliness, efficiency and quality of their dedication to our listing is outstanding!
— Home Owner, 11411 N. Cedar Point High Road, Syracuse IN
Our experience with Reecer Properties was excellent. The ‘customized’ approach and responsiveness was amazing. You’re extremely customer-centric.
— Darla & Jason Conrad
Lynn Reecer was my initial ambassador to Fort Wayne when I relocated to the area just over a year ago. She helped me to get oriented to the city and to figure out what area of town best suited me. I was happy to benefit from her knowledge of this community, not to mention the real estate market. When it came time to buy, I appreciated the extra effort and time.
I appreciated how easy everything was once we selected a place and he was certainly very helpful in explaining the process, coordinating inspections and additional evaluations as needed. Several times, she offered to be present when I couldn't make it out to the property which made buying a house feasible with my busy work schedule.
I couldn't be happier with the result.
— Mark Ranck, Home Buyer 11/2014
We liked the team atmosphere, everyone works together to get it done. We were ready to give a testimonial the first week out.
We cannot think of anything they could do any better. How many realtors want to find their clients a home that are willing to call current homeowners and ask them if they are willing to sell? We were seriously blown away by the ‘out of the box attitude’ to satisfy their clients. Dedication, follow through, connectability throughout the group
— Vicki & Jim Brubaker
"James has shown attention to detail, never give up attitude and applies just enough pressure on both sides to move the deal along as quickly as possible."
— John C. Little
"I had listed my house a couple of years ago and couldn't even get people in the door to see it. When you suggested that we utilize your Staging & Design consultants, I was very skeptical. Pam and Kathy not only staged the house beautifully. My house looked so good I was actually considering keeping it! Fortunately, my house sold in two days after the For Sale sign went up in the yard, so I didn't have time to change my mind."
— Jim Suciu
Lynn, James and the entire Reecer Properties staff truly work as a team to accomplish the task at hand - selling your current home, and finding your forever home! They provide the right tips so your home is appealing to buyers, and I believe that's why my home sold as quickly as it did! I can confidently say that you can trust that Lynn and James will provide top notch service to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
“We’ve worked with James Reecer on real estate transactions – both as a seller and a buyer. Having owned six homes in four different states, I can say that James is by far the best realtor we’ve used."
— Stephanie Schultz
"Our house was transformed into a warm home by the staging team offered by Reecer Properties. We now call the staging women, "The Dream Team". They focus on your preferences and make recommendations that make you instantly comfortable in your new home. We are so happy with the results."
— Elena and Riley Miller
I couldn’t be more pleased with the progress of the updates in our home. I provided Reecer Staging & Design with our list and they took it from there. I can’t believe how quickly the projects were completed. This would have taken us months on our own.

"After being in business for 33 years, I finally know the secret to success -- hard work, dedication, and the best people working for you and always taking care of the customers as though they are your children and loved ones. Saying this, I can truly state that Reecer Properties also follows the same philosophy in the Real Estate Industry. I have bought and sold six homes over the years, and you are the first realtor that actually provided the service you stated you would provide."
— Mike Violi, Midway Specialty Vehicles/American Cargo
"It's the difference in philosophy that made all the difference in where I'm living today. Like the familiar saying, ‘seek first to understand,’ Lynn and Reecer Properties did just that. And the results speak for themselves -- I love my new home!"

“Working together with Reecer Properties has provided an extra plus to convincing physicians that Fort Wayne is a great place to live and work. I am confident we have at least two candidates interested in the position.”

We tried to sell our house for about four years. It was a very difficult listing, as it was a historic home with a substantial addition. We worked with four other realtors, some of which are quite good, and went all that time with very few showing and no offers. Then we listed to James Reecer. The house sold in under a month. James and Lynn Reecer have built a great company with all of the right people in all of the right places. Everyone in the organization has very specific roles and they all flow together flawlessly.
— Todd & Angie Freeland
"This experience, which could have been a nightmare, has been a wonderful and exciting adventure thanks to you."
— Natasha Denning
It is a pleasure to recommend the Reecer Properties recruiting team. We engaged Lynn and her team on a senior executive recruitment to northern Indiana from Atlanta. Within the day, the candidate and their family were convinced Fort Wayne was the new home for them. I highly recommend the Reecer team for any recruitment related activities and we will use them again in the future."
— Shep Moyle, CEO - Shindigz
"We can't thank Reecer Properties enough for doing such a great job of selling our Lake Wawasee condo. We knew that other, Syracuse-based realtors were much more established at Wawasee. However, we had a hunch that that Lynn and James would do an awesome job of marketing to the Fort Wayne/1-69 South corridor/Indy markets and boy, were we right! We had multiple showings and actually got multiple offers! Talk is cheap and Reecer Properties did exactly what they said they'd do."
— Doug & Missy Copley
“Having never been to Fort Wayne, Lynn gave us a tour of the city and made us aware of the best Fort Wayne has to offer. She made us very comfortable with our decision to move to Fort Wayne. Most of all, Lynn went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We could not have asked for more from an agent!"
— D.A., Partner of New Physician Recruitment
"When my wife and I decided to list our lake house last year, we didn’t have great expectations. The economy was depressed and not many homes were selling on the lakes. We had listed our house for a short period of time the year prior and were discouraged by the results. We wanted to find a Real Estate firm that would take a personal interest in selling OUR home. We didn’t want to be just another MLS listing.
We were referred to the Reecers from a friend and decided to give them a try. From the very beginning, we knew they were different. They helped us prep our home, took amazing pictures, and created a beautiful brochure. They kept in touch with us during the entire process and treated us like we were their only clients. They went above and beyond to sell our home. I was even able to sign all the closing documents in my house and at my convenience."
— Doug Lance
”I recently relocated to Fort Wayne and as a physician coming from out of state, I appreciated the Reecer’s approach to real estate. Lynn met with me and my husband and after taking time to get to know us took us on a tour of Fort Wayne tailored to our needs and interests. Lynn and James respected our house hunting goals and did not pressure us to buy more than we could afford and also were willing to work around my hours. Lynn’s husband is also a physician, so I felt she was uniquely capable of relating to me and my husband.
I actually interacted with two other realtors prior to meeting with Lynn and James. I was disappointed with the agents that my group put me in contact with. I felt they did not listen to my wants, were incapable of communicating with me and that they continually urged me to look at houses that neither met my needs nor budget. In short, they did not appreciate my interests. Between tours highlighting this town’s great features and neighborhoods and their expert approach to real estate I am confident they can help recruit top notch talent.”
— Mr. Nicholas and Dr. Janet Schafer
