Bought a home in 2014.

Judy Buckmaster is the best real estate agent I've worked with in over 25 years of buying properties, no doubt about it! When I started looking for properties in Bloomington a few years ago, I asked four friends for agent recommendations: all of them gave me Judy's name!

She has been an excellent member of my "find a perfect home" team. We started looking for homes for me three years ago. During that time Judy showed me over 30 properties and I've put in offers for six properties. The first five didn't close for a variety of reasons - counteroffer too high, failed inspections, etc. The last one, in which I am joyously sitting right now closed a few weeks ago.

Over this long haul of house hunting Judy was a delight to work with. I would find a house online and text her with an address. She would always respond promptly and always after looking at the property's detailed listing and comparative sales.

I asked her to help me buy a house that would be a suitable retirement home and a good investment. A number of times she would counsel me to not bother seeing a property because of a neighborhood being in transition or noise issues. Other agents I've worked with have never disclosed to me any issue that might prevent them from getting their commission.

During these years I've had the opportunity to refer property sellers to Judy. In every case these sellers were delighted with Judy's professional, honest and friendly approach and with her "getting the property sold quickly at a good price" results.

I respect Judy's judgment completely and I will continue to refer her to other property buyers and sellers. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Sold a home in 2014.

Judy's professionalism and positive attitude made my wife and I feel at ease when selling our house. She is patient and knowledgeable in the area. She highly recommended and from experience, friendly.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Bloomington, IN.

Judy Buckmaster is outstanding with her attention to service, details, creative thinking for marketing, and getting feedback after showings. Because of the economy and the price of my home, it was on the market for longer than we wished. Judy was determined to get it sold and inaugurated regular open houses because of the success she'd experienced with another listing's open house. The open houses were successful in getting interest--and a sale. The listing was rented for some of the time (I was living elsewhere) and she did a graceful and diplomatic job working with the tenants regarding showings. When there were questions about the condominium rules, Judy immediately contacted the association management and followed through with detail. I felt I was her only client but I know that wasn't the case.  More Less
