What Our Customers Are Saying
We had a great experience with Maggie Burgess. She met and exceeded our expectations. My parent’s house sold in just a few days and above asking price. We would highly recommend Maggie.
We moved out of state and only had one day to look for a new house. Judy designed the day perfectly, and we saw everything we needed and wanted to see to make a decision. The negotiations went great for us, considering the difficult seller we were working with. Judy made sure we got the best deal. She was always easy to get ahold of and discuss any concerns we had. She’s up to date on everything, including all the technology that made doing paperwork from another state a breeze. Would definitely recommend Judy Smith to anyone needing an excellent agent!
Keith Hanssen did a good job of keeping me informed of the market over the years. He also made the closing easy and painless. Thank you Keith!
Maggie was so helpful and easy to work with. She knows the area really well, knows a lot of folks, and will help with anything. She knew exactly how to sell our house and did a great job getting it finished. Our house was only on the market for 2 weeks, so that right there speaks for itself.
If you’re looking for a friendly, well-organized, hardworking agent to buy or sell a home, we highly recommend Judy Smith. Judy was our realtor when we relocated from out of state. From our first meeting over the phone, Judy was attentive to our needs, proactive in gathering a detailed list of musts we were looking for in a new home, and emailed listings to us even before our first visit to Nebraska. She worked diligently during our house hunting visit and showed us homes she knew fit our criteria. She worked hard in negotiating a fair deal with the sellers and securing a closing date that met our needs We were truly pleased with our entire experience working with Judy.
Maggie was a joy to work with. She was patient, not pushy and went above and beyond in terms of communication with the Seller, Title company our attorneys, etc. I have been fortunate to buy and sell many properties and Maggie is an agent who I will remember as kind responsive and more a partner in the process than an agent. Thanks and God Bless you, Maggie.
Keith Hanssen did a great job of representing us in a down market for lake front property. He was easy to work with and helped us move items from the property which we had owned for 29 years. Keith Hanssen’s the man at PK Lake. He knows everyone and knows how to get anything done. He even helped us sell our boat. I couldn’t give a higher recommendation!
Judy came on recommendation from our listing agent from our previous home when we moved to the area. We couldn’t have been more pleased. Judy was readily available by phone and email, is knowledgeable about the market and has more business contacts than I have friends and family. Judy was able to point out issues with houses on walk through that we weren’t as keen to notice that affected home valuation and future resale. When we were out of town and saw a house for sale we might like, Judy walked through the home on facetime with us to give us a better idea if we wanted to place an offer. She really was adept at catching on to our likes/dislikes and was able to recommend areas we had not thought of. When it came time to make a deal Judy’s experience and negotiating skills helped take pressure off us and we definitely didn’t feel pushed to make a deal. We had some concerns about the house we were bidding on but Judy was able to use her local contacts to get contractors at the house in addition to the home inspector to make sure we were protected. I’ll fully admit that I’m picky, sometimes bull headed and obsessive about certain home details. Judy navigated my personality quirks with ease. My wife and I would recommend her hands down and had a very positive experience.
Vee Hanssen listed our lake place on Westside of PK and one of her teammates found us a buyer in under 60 days. That’s pretty good considering we had been trying to get it sold for two years. She used a different approach to marketing it that worked. Vee stays in touch and is now our friend.
John Morris is an outstanding real estate professional who works very hard to help you achieve your goal. For me was sale of a lot at the Cliffs Resort and I was pleased with his efforts from beginning to end. John is an outstanding communicator, keeping me updated with progress on a regular basis. He is very prompt at responding to inquiries both by phone or email and if he doesn’t know the answer he will get it. I highly recommend John Morris for your real estate needs whether buying or selling, he will be there for you.
John Morris is a true professional always upbeat and willing to go the extra mile. Very knowledgeable of the real estate market and years of experience shows through in every step of the process. If you are looking for any type of real estate I highly recommend John.
Maggie Burgess had expert knowledge of the area, was quick to assess our property goals and negotiated a successful purchase on a marquee property using creative offer strategy that beat out competing offers. When we signed the deal, Maggie was with us all the way providing measurements as we are not local, providing vendor contacts to maintain the property and helped us above and beyond the scope of a realtor. If you want to buy at Possum Kingdom, you will be a leg up if you use Maggie. She treated us like family.
Keith Hanssen at Possum Kingdom Realty was very helpful in listing and selling my lake lot at PK Lake. I would recommend Keith Hanssen and his agency to anyone looking to purchase or sell at PK Lake. Thank you Keith
Just bought a home through John Morris and had a great experience. This Realtor sent me emails for about 2 months (at my request) for possible home matches. He only sent me homes that matched my criteria. We then picked out about 5 to go up and see. Fell in love with one of them and closed on it 2 weeks later. Flawless transition. The seller and I got along great but John facilitated that whole process. Professional in every way.
I will definitely recommend April Keeter to friends or associates if they are interested in reviewing property on or around Possum Kingdom Lake. April was very easy to work with and always right there with an answer even after the sale! Lake financing can be a little tricky, but April hung in there with us…. We now own our OWN dream home! Highly recommended! We were both very NEW to this lake area, and April was VERY patient with us. We felt a connection with April the first day we met her. Very professional, and efficient.”
Keith Hanssen helped us through the home buying process with his expertise and knowledge of the local real estate market. He was patient, professional and efficient in his approach. Keith was thoughtful and worked diligently on our behalf. Will definitely use Possum Kingdom Real Estate again!
Judy Smith is a very knowledgeable and experienced realtor. She has a great personality. Judy sold our house in two months. The working process was very smooth. We were very fortunate to have Judy Smith as our realtor.
Maggie Burgess is an outstanding Realtor. From our long distance communication, to the very informative trip of the east and west side of PK Lake, and the knowledgeable tours of the homes we were viewing, we were so impressed with her knowledge and integrity. I would have no problem purchasing property from Maggie, either in person or via long distance. We felt that Maggie was looking out for our best interests and wanted us to be happy. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS REALTOR
“My husband and I began a home search in Graham and we were lucky enough to be put in contact with Misty Shook. We were impressed how hard she worked at finding and arranging for the showings. We decided to build our new home instead of purchasing, however if the time comes for us to purchase, we will definitely be contacting Misty again. Thank you Misty for all your hard work. We appreciate you so much!!”
Judy went above and beyond to help my husband and I, we moved here from Oklahoma and did not know the area, she got us into a area that we loved then four years later she helped us again to purchase some land to build on and just recently helped us find some rental properties, very impressed with her knowledge in all areas. If you want someone who knows the market you have found the right person!
