Ratings & Reviews

I can't write enough positive things about Don and Sally Linder! As a first-time home buyer, I wasn't sure what to expect. I anticipated a pushy salesperson who would try to get me to "close the deal," but Don and Sally were the complete opposite of that! They were extremely patient, took plenty of time to answer all of my questions, and at no point did I feel pressured to make a decision. I was new to the Athens area, so Don spent about 2 hours with me on a Saturday driving me around the area and pointing out some of the different neighborhoods and typical home values in the area. I looked at many homes before I finally found one that fit my needs, but they had no problem showing them all to me. Once I was ready to make an offer, I really felt like Don and Sally had my back the entire time. Sally spent about an hour and a half with me going over comparable sales, other listings, and so forth to ensure I had all the information to make a competitive offer. Throughout the entire process, Don and Sally continued to prove just how much they know about the Athens-area real estate market. I actually think that Don's knowledge of real estate in the area is reality television worthy. He's like an encyclopedia of property in Athens. As we walked up to a house he was showing me, he said "If I remember right, I was in this house about 10 years ago and there were some foundation issues so we'll want to be sure and see if they've been corrected." For the record, he was remembering right. Sally put me in touch with all the other professionals I needed to talk with - she recommended a couple of home inspectors, she recommended a specific bank to get a better interest rate than my original pre-approval, and so forth. Finally, I want to give Don and Sally kudos for their responsiveness. Sally and I were frequently in contact via phone calls, text messages, and emails and I constantly felt like I knew what was going on in the process because of her updates. They were easy to get a hold of no matter the time of day - during business hours, after business hours, over the weekend, and even once on a holiday. All in all, I can't recommend Don and Sally Linder enough. They are the definition of the consummate real estate professional and I consider myself fortunate to have had them on my side during what would have otherwise been an intimidating and confusing process.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Albany, OH.
Primary point of contact: Sally Linder

Sally Linder from Larry Conrath Realty was absolutely AMAZING!!!! She was so helpful to me and my husband, who were looking to buy our first house as we were starting our family and definitely needed a permanent place and a bigger place. She was willing to show us any house we were interested in and actually showed us the house we bought on a whim. Not only was she readily available but became our godmother of realty. She walked us through step by step on how everything worked, helped us stay on top of all the deadlines we had for paperwork and so forth, made sure the lenders were on top of the loan process, etc. We honestly could not have bought our home without Sally's help and her expertise of her field- she really knows her stuff and was very informative and a straight shooter about everything which made the whole process easier for us.

My husband and I could not be more thankful for everything Sally did for us to get our family into our lovely home. She is definitely more than just our realtor and we have and will stay in contact with her for giving our family such a huge leg up!

We would and have recommended Sally and Larry Conrath Realty to many people looking for homes, especially first time home buyers!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Athens, OH.

Don and Sally Linder were wonderful to work with! They both are incredibly knowledgeable about the Athens County market. The home I purchased was exactly what I was looking for, and they were patient enough to work with me for nearly a year until the right home came on the market. Both Don and Sally were very responsive - replying to emails/phone calls promptly and attentively, even on "off" hours. As a first time home buyer I appreciated this attentiveness. Don's background in home inspections was also a great advantage for someone who way looking at older homes in the community. It was a very positive experience, and I would highly recommend Don Linder and Sally Linder!  More Less
