Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Fort Thomas, KY.
With Sandi's networking and established relationships within Ft. Thomas, she was able to show us houses that were just coming on the market. In a high demand area, this was incredibly important. She was very responsive to all of our many questions and went above and beyond our expectations. She was also very flexible and always scheduled showings around our work schedules. She was able to help walk us through a contract on a home that was being renovated, and even provided us with great ideas to incorporate into the renovations. She truly acted upon our best interests at all times.
I have known Sandi for over nearly 12 years. Sandi has sold two of my houses and helped my wife and I buy our farm in Lewis County. She is a trooper. I drug her all through Pendleton and Bracken counties the last 2+ years looking at weekend – hunting properties before finally deciding on a farm in Lewis County. Sandi has got to be the most knowledgeable real estate person in the Campbell County – Ft. Thomas market. I found working with her easy. She was there to help me during every step of the processes since selling my first house in Dayton, KY and selling my second house in Melbourne, KY (with the subdivision still under construction) to the farm purchase in the summer of 2013. She emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel very secure during what is without a doubt a very involved process.
I am very happy to give Sandi my highest recommendation to anyone selling their property or buying a property.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Fort Thomas, KY.
Sandi is Awesome! Highly recommend her. She has vast knowledge about the NKY area Especially Ft. Thomas. She will go out of her way to schedule a showing on your time and puts the best interest in the buyer if buying a home or the seller if selling.
Sandi was recommended to my husband and myself by a friend who had done business with Sandi in the past. We talked on the phone with Sandi and explained what we were looking for. She very quickly found a couple places to look at with us. I feel that Sandi was taking in the comments that my husband and I were making as we were looking at various places, to find the right place for us. She very quickly picked up on what was important to us. She was very good about emailing and/or calling us with listings she felt matched our wants. She worked within our budget and we never felt pressure from her in any way. One night in December, we were looking at a few homes, which was going to be our last time looking till after the holidays. Sandi had just met a potential client that was going to be placing his townhome on the market. She asked us if we would want to look at it that night. It was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. We had a contract the next day or so and are now living in this wonderful townhome that we just love! We are very thankful for Sandi and her getting to know us and what our "wants'" were for a new home. She nailed it with this place for us! I would and will recommend her to our friends. Sandi is awesome!
Sandi is definitely an agent you want on your side of the negotiating table. She is a hard worker, knows what she is doing, and is one of the best negotiators I know. She will get you the deal you want, or will go down fighting.
Mike and Sandi are a lot of fun, too, which is an added bonus. You will have fun exploring your opportunities with them!!
We listed our property with Sandi and Mike after working with another realtor for nearly eight months. They made some insightful recommendations for staging our home, were very aggressive about conducting open houses and generated significantly heightened interest. It did take about four months to move the property, however, we had two legitimate offers in the interim that fell through due to complications on the buyer's end. In the end, we actually sold the property for a higher price than the two offers that fell through. We got great advice and counsel throughout the entire process, and were extremely satisfied with the services that Sandi and Mike provided. Our only regret was that we didn't list with them from the very beginning.
If you are searching for a home in or around Fort Thomas, this is the team you want on your side! We have used Mike and Sandy a few times now, and they go above and beyond! I recommend them to wetting I know!
I would highly recommend. They made my first time buying a house a great experience. They made the process go very smooth and was glad to have such a talented and pleasant team helping me buy the right house.

Thanks Tim for your great review. You were a pleasure to work with and know we will be working with you again in the near future. You have a good head on your shoulders and will be successful with your real estate investments. We can't wait to see what you've done with your house.
I've sold 2 homes and purchased 2 homes using Your Town (West-McDonough Team) and it was a great experience. Both homes sold quickly due to their expertise and knowledge. I would recommend them to others.
