Lynn Bainer is someone you absolutely want on your team at Kim Odegard. We were looking for a house for at least one year with a different agent with no success. After signing up with Lynn, found a house within 1-2 weeks. She was also very patient with us new home buyers and very thoughtful too. She gave us a very nice house warming gift and she has sent a very cute letter hoping we are enjoying our new house, which we are :)

We would like to thank Lynn (especially Lynn) and your whole team for being patient and flexible in helping us find our new home. We worked with Lynn for 3+ months in trying to see MANY, MANY homes throughout NW Indiana in our narrowing down and identifying the home we wanted. Between our somewhat hectic schedules, Lynn managed to accommodate us with a lot of patience and professionalism.

During the course of all this time together, we actually built a friendship with Lynn that we hope will extend well beyond the business side of our meeting. We appreciated all of the suggestions and helpful facts that she provided throughout our time together that helped us to arrive at our final decision which ended in Schererville.

We have been in our new home for a little over a month and are very happy with our choice. We would recommend Lynn and the Kim O. Team for anyone looking into homes in the NW IN area (Crown Point- Dyer).
Thanks again,
Duane & Edi

Home buyers
Kim and her team provided amazing service. Lynn effectively created a search for our preferred home in our desired location in a very competitive seller's market. Once we decided on the house, Lynn worked with us on the purchase agreement well into the night. Lynn and Tara were great in completing all the necessary steps to close on the house in a very tight time frame (less than 30 days).

FANTASTIC! PROFESSIONAL! Positive attitude and always follows up.
The portal created to view homes for sale was easy to use and had exactly what I was looking for. Everything was explained clearly and the entire team made the process easy.

Thanks everyone. I would not let anyone else sell or help me purchase a home.

It has been a pleasure working with Lynn Bainer. She eased a lot of the stress that comes with buying a home for the first time for us. Having never bought a home before, we were both impressed by how fast and smoothly everything went down. Lynn was professional, honest, and very reliable throughout our home buying process. We are confident that she helped us find the perfect home to fit our budget and our needs for starting a family. Lynn recommended our lender and our inspectors to us as well and we were very pleased with their services. Everyone had nothing but great things to say about working with Lynn. We will definitely highly recommend Lynn to our friends and family, as well as, anyone looking to purchase a home. We would definitely work with her again in the future! Thank you!

We have been so pleased with Kim Odegard, and her Team from the first interview, which showed how knowledgeable Kim is, to the photos of our home, to the Professional care exhibited in the quick sale of our home. We highly recommend Kim and her Team, and in fact have already referred two different people to call her, and are very happy that we have found them.

Kim and her team were amazing to work with! When seeing houses, Kim gave us her opinion about each house we saw and noticed things we wouldn't even know to look for. She was extremely helpful and was able to make herself (or another team member) available for us as soon as a house popped up on the market. We couldn't have asked for a better real estate team!

Lynn was very helpful in helping me find my home. We looked at several properties and she led me to the one I made an offer on and purchased.

I wanted to wait until after the closing to write my recommendation but unfortunately the buyer was unable to proceed with the purchase. Kim and her team have been really great throughout the process thus far. Everything is always explained in detail and there is never any rush when we need to speak on the phone. Kim is amazing and I would recommend her without hesitation.

I wanted to make sure Lynn received all the recognition for home sale. She made us feel very comfortable throughout the home buying process. From the late night emails to her opened schedule with us. She fought for us from day one and made sure we felt comfortable with every decision. I would without a doubt recommend her and the entire KW team to all my friends and family.

Kim Odegard and her team did a great job. We averaged 3 showings a day which brought 2 offers within a week. The offer we accepted was above the asking price. Could your realtor do that?

Kim Odegard has handled the sales of our home in very professional manner, always keeping us informed as to what was next in the process. Cannot say enough about her to express how wonderful she has been to work with. Her team at her office reached out immediately to us and offered to assist us in any way. We will be recommending her to anyone that is considering buying or selling a home.

Kim was recommend to me by a friend. She is hands down an amazing agent. Any property we went to see she asked the 21 questions, some of which I never thought to ask. She was able to accommodate to what days and time worked for me as well. Finally found a place and I am closing end of May. Thanks Kim!

We were first time home buyers and somewhat lost, one of our friends recommended Kim as she had helped her several years ago. When we met Kim her expertise and candid ( when requested) insights where invaluable to our search. Through the process she has been invaluable answering our questions and making sure we had all our paperwork organized and ready for us. The only thing left is closing and she has prepped us on the process and will guide us the rest of the way. Kim cannot be recommended any higher. Thank you

I was so lucky to work with Lynn Bainer on the Kim Odegard Team when searching for my first home! She was always available to chat and helped calm my nerves throughout the process. She was also readily available to see houses at a moment's notice. Thank you, Lynn, for all your help and support!
