06/26/2014 - Lovemynewhome
Showed home in 2014 in Potter, Atchison, KS 66002.
My husband & I, were looking for a 3BD/2BTH home with a descent amount of yard, and over 1500 sq ft. Louise, stated we were needing to be looking for a home that is around $200,000. We had a Pre-Approval Letter, for $100,000. My husband & I, truly did not want to go as high as $100,000, in which we were able to find exactly everything we wanted in a home, for $81,000, the very next day after meeting with Louise in Atchison, KS. Our new home was not sold to us by Louise, just to clarify, and in a completely different area of KS. My husband & I, just could not find any real beauty/feeling of the Atchison, KS area we would want to call home. We told this to Louise, from the very beginning, and she continued to keep going on about the towns history. The history of any town had no bearing in looking for our home. I was asked my age, as well as if "we" needed to find myself a job, during the time of viewing homes, not to mention the constant poking of my arm with her lime green nails. Louise, was not ever close to my husband & I's true vision of the home we wanted to purchase. Every single home, we viewed was in such poor shape, that we didn't even bother getting out of the car. Louise, spoke very poorly about a huge portion of the homes For Sale with her Real Estate Company. This raised a very high Red Flag for us, not to mention the amount of time she spends on talking about herself. I would say, we never felt comfortable around her nor did Louise, keep us at ease to ever once let us get the feeling she was someone we wanted to have working for us, as well as trust in getting us into a home that was meeting our needs and working in our targeted price range. Louise, knew my husband had a job,but as far as myself, I stay at home, to care for my older brother whom is disabled and has TB, I never felt this was anything Louise needed to know, no other Realtor asked my age or such ?'s. In all the Realtor's we met, Louise was the only one whom asked my age, and suggested looking for a job for myself, as well as speaking of herself so freely. Louise, didn't respect our need/desire to stay under the $100,000 price range, due to that being our highest we absolutely truly wanted to go financially. We are the ones whom know our finances and we can never predict what the future may hold with health, emergencies. We do not live above our means, and only wanted something we can easily afford that was in great shape. We were so glad it took less then 24 hrs to verify Louises statement of our desired home for over $200,000, we got it for $81,000, and the home was completely remodeled 10 yrs ago, and remodeled again in 2013. Louise, stated she likes to only work with local Lenders, stating they are faster, etc. with the Real Estate process, glad I stuck to my Out-Of-State Lender, whom moved actually very, very fast, Lenders work just like your local Real Estate Agents, they work by email, phone, and texting. We never once saw a home in Atchison, that Louise had anything nice to say, except for (1) house she thought I truly would like because of the remodeled kitchen, we werent happy with the rest of the entire home/yard, these were not a reaqson to go in and buy a home, plus it had huge cracks in the closet walls. Louise on everything, stated just slap some paint on it, dry rot, slap some paint on it. We are not the kind of people to be satified with slapping paint on anything major, because the issue is still there and by far does not fix the issue. We felt strongly with all the homes we were shown they would be lemons right off the bat with all the issues each house had, especially those with huge Foundation cracks. Everyone that Louise wanted to use for the homes were all Local Businesses. I knew we would be butting heads as we did on on my choice of Lender, for I would have dealt with all Inspectors/Companies outside of Atchison, KS, and would have wanted to set the app-ts myself, as we did with our new home. Louise, would be working for us, not the other way around, with what she had told us about USDA, which is the Loan we used to get our house, We knew ahead of time, as well as with already we had been looking for homes for 5 months prior to meeting Louise, and spoke personally to the USDA in Topeka, KS, on what they look for in approving our USDA Loan, as well as what all needs to be up to par to make the Buying and Approval process move smoothly. Louise, kept asking us when my husband & I, saw each issue, she wanted to know where we are getting our information from, she disagreed by the way she was presenting herself, but in the end, we were correct on the issues the homes cannot have in order to pass for the USDA Loan. When we saw the house we did end up purchasing, every single issue we saw, was exactly what needed to be taken care of for the USDA Approval, but also our Realtor was right on target with seeing the same issues, this made us feel very comfortable and feel like our Realtor would be a good trusting choice.

Bought a home in 2014.
Louise was and always is a consummate professional. Her local knowledge is unsurpassed and her pleasant demeanor creates an instant feeling of trust. She is very good at what she does and she loves what she does which comes across. All of my experiences with Louise have been very pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend her. She was able to find a home that met our needs perfectly while at the same time, showing us all around the community that she so loves.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Atchison, KS.
Louise guided me through a very successful sale in Atchison. From the first time I met her in her office to the finished sale, she gave advice that was right on. She knew the market, had ready clients, as well as knowledge of future clients and was personable. (After our first meeting she took my 9 year old granddaughter horse back riding at her ranch!) I had wanted to update the house before I sold it, but since I hadn't lived there, the house was inherited, I didn't know who to hire. Louise had names of very competent contractors who submitted competitive bids. When the house was ready for sale, Louise and I looked at the statistics and set the price together. Three weeks later the house sold for the asking price with a cash offer. Over a period of 40 years I've had 10 houses on the market in four states, and I can tell you this is as good as it gets. Louise works for you from beginning to end, as only a professional realtor can.
