Lindsay did a great job for us, providing us insight to the market and where the selling price should be set. A buyer came forward quickly and Lindsay stayed in touch with us, ensuring to handle any issues that came along. She made the selling process easy for us. I would recommend Lindsay to anyone looking to sell their home. Thank you Lindsay.

Lindsay is terrific. The go-to person in the Tburg/Interlaken area. We received a full list price offer in under a week with a back-up. She also helped us navigate a difficult purchase/closing for our new home (e.g. beware of homes that haven't been on the market in generations).

My wife chose to work with Lindsay for the sale of our home near Mecklenburg after some careful research among the local realtors. She was immaculately professional throughout her interactions with us, was tremendously impressive with her plan to advertise the house AND with her follow-through on all aspects of the process. The aerial video of our home and property was a thrilling revelation, even for us as the owners! She was very helpful in getting us through the very short period during which the house was actually on the market, and seems to have been completely on target in her approach to marketing this particular sale of a country home with a significant block of acreage. Both of us unhesitatingly recommend Lindsay and would be delighted to use her again in the future.

My husband and I have been renting out our house in Trumansburg and decided to sell it after the last tenants moved out. I was up there visiting my Mother who had just passed away and my mind wasn’t on picking out an agent but upon a quick review of the agents I picked Lindsay.
I couldn’t of made a better choice! She meet me on short notice and made everything easy for me. Once back in Georgia, Lindsay communicated with in a matter that made me feel like my listing was important and was constantly getting my listing out in other media formats.
When offers came in she immediately sent them to me and when I accepted an offer the whole process was so easy via long distance!
What really impressed me was when a person dumped the sailboat that my nephew sold for me a couple of days before closing, she found someone to haul it out so their wouldn’t be an issue with the closing.
I strongly recommend Lindsay Hart if you have plans on selling your home! She is very professional, creative, caring and most of all...she will get your home sold!

We were more than pleased with Lindsay. She was very professional yet very personal. Lindsay kept us informed every step of the way. If you ever need a realtor I would definitely recommend Lindsay Hart.

We interviewed several agents and are so glad we went with Lindsay! She was attentive, knowledgeable, and provided us with great service. The house we purchased had sat for an extended period of time. Lindsay worked with us to find the right inspectors and plumber to look over the property, then returned five times to take water samples. When the listing agent quit in the middle of the transaction, she continued to manage the process, constantly pushing to get the information we needed. We are happy to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Lindsay is amazing! She is very conscientious and helpful. She is very helpful with questions and whatever needs to be done. She is extremely personable and diligent in returning calls and emails. I found it very rewarding to work with Lindsay and wish all the realtors were like Lindsay!!

Lindsay listed (Fall 2016) and successfully sold (Spring 2017) our house in Trumansburg. Lindsay was honest, transparent, informative and personable which made working with her a breeze. I inquired of her marketing strategies early on and she took a fair amount of time walking me through her integrated marketing strategy for the homes she lists. Any time we had questions or concerns, she was incredibly quick (and often patient) to answer with as much detail as we needed. We are close to putting the home we live in on the market and searching for our next home and you can bet we will be choosing Lindsay for our realtor needs because of our previous experience.

I chose Lindsay because she lives in and knows my town well. Her advice regarding pricing and timing was excellent- my house sold within a week (actually within hours, but after a buyer backed out, I had another in literally a few hours.). She did a great job with her photos that made my house look spectacular online. Communication was very good- I could count on her responding to my texts quickly and keeping me updated on all developments. She coordinated well with other realtors, especially on the day the first deal fell through- I literally had another showing within an hour. My neighborhood is in high demand, but a realtor who was still there when I returned after a showing commented that "the price is right". Closing was also effortless for me. I was out and closed in about a 2 month period, with some delay at my request! When I ran out of steam moving out, Lindsay found a housecleaner for me who could come on short notice and clean the empty house.

I highly recommend Lindsay to anyone who is looking to buy a home. She is an amazing Realtor!! Lindsay showed my husband and I a house in Sept and two months later we closed and were able to have Thanksgiving in our new home. Lindsay went above and beyond for us. Lindsay answered all questions, and always responded to emails, texts and phone calls. Lindsay walked us thru all the steps and helped with lawyers, inspectors, and even put us in touch with the right person at the bank to help us with the mortgage application process. I am very thankful to Lindsay and all of her help!!

Lindsay was always available to answer questions, by text, phone or email. No matter how silly the question, she never made us feel silly. Our property happen to be out of the Ithaca area & she was still very knowledgeable of other county rules & regulations. If she didn't know, she didn't hesitate to say she would find out, which we appreciated.

Lindsay Hart is an amazing Agent. She is caring, understanding, helpful, goes above and beyond.
She personally handled all kinds of issues that came up with the sale of our home. She met with contractors to complete repairs, she even offered to move a potential problem with a shed on the property line.
She listed the home with great viability online, locally, and state wide. She is very high tech with options for online signatures; and forms that even the most un-techy person can understand how to do.
Thank you to Lindsay from the bottom of my heart!

We are so glad we worked with Lindsay on selling our Trumansburg home. She was everything you would want in a realtor. Knowledgeable of the Village of Tburg and Tompkins county, reassuring and professional. A true class act. Highly recommended!

Lindsay is very knowledgeable about the local market and available resources for both selling and buying a home. She has vast experience from which I was able to draw from as both a seller and a buyer. She is readily available via call, text and email to address any concerns and I felt 100% supported throughout my recent home selling and buying experience. I whole heartedly recommend that you contact Lindsay Hart for your next real estate venture

We highly recommend Lindsay and appreciated her help through every step of the home buying process. She was extremely professional, always available, and knowledgable about the local market.

Also, Lindsay's professional connections were super helpful. She always knew exactly who to call when we asked for advice about everything that comes with new home ownership.

Lindsay will definitely be the first person we call next time we need a realtor.

Lindsay was wonderful to work with. We were new to the area and didn't know where we wanted to live, what type of house we wanted, in Ithaca, outside of Ithaca, new house, old house - we just didn't know. Over a period of weeks (months actually, due to our schedule related to living out of state) Lindsay made sure we saw everything so that we could start focusing on size, age, location. And then it happened - we found the house we wanted - and wouldn't you know - it was a sale by owner. Lindsay didn't flinch - she represented us extremely well on the purchase - which was definitely more challenging than usual (we wanted to rent the house while waiting to close, there was no seller's agent and this was new to the seller, and we weren't used to an attorney state) - Lindsay was terrific. She handled everything as a true professional and made you feel as if all the problems were hers to solve - even if they weren't. She was great!

Lindsay is whip-smart, well-informed, patient and above all a pleasure to deal with. She guided us through a several-month process that started with us wanting to buy a large sub-dividable parcel, detoured through the vagaries of local zoning ordinances and municipal services, and ended with us buying a house – a negotiation in which Lindsay proved to be a masterful deal maker.

We are hoping this house will be just the start of our real estate “career” in Ithaca, and we’ll be sticking with Lindsay!

Three years ago, I was going through a divorce, on a tight budget, and in a time crunch, feeling pretty clueless and apprehensive about this whole home-buying thing. My first realtor was abrasive and aggressive, and I was tempted to just rent an apartment. But I really wanted to own a home so I persisted, and found Lindsay. And thank goodness! She was the epitome of a guiding light throughout the whole process: professional, knowledgeable, articulate, and genuinely kind and caring.
I would recommend Lindsay 100 times over to anyone looking to buy a home.

Lindsay was a true professional. She listened to what we were looking for and found us the perfect house for us. She was dependable and pleasant to work with. She also found us a renter for the property in a short period of time. I would strongly recommend her for any real estate needs.

Home Buyer/Home Seller
We are currently working for Lindsay for the third time. Back in 2009 we visited the area and spent a week with Lindsay looking for farm property. We went back to Georgia without finding what we wanted, but after spending a week with us, Lindsay knew for what we were searching, and she continued the search. Not long after she emailed us with information and detailed videos of the perfect property. We had faith in Lindsay's judgment and purchased the property sight unseen. A year later, we were ready to move to NY. We then worked with Lindsay to find a home close to our recently purchased farm property, and again we purchased 'sight unseen' because of our trust in Lindsay's judgment. We have been pleased with both purchases!! We are now building a home on our farm property and have begun working with Lindsay to sell our current home. I spent 18 years in the military on active duty, and have moved many times to many states, working with real estate agents each time to purchase or rent; purchasing and selling three other properties in two other states with other agents. In all these years, Lindsay is the only agent that I have been so satisfied with that I have requested her services a second time, and the fact I am working with her a third time, speaks volumes to her abilities and dedication to her profession and her integrity.

The first I worked with Lindsay was 2013. We were selling our home and she did a great job getting us through the process. Since then I bought two rental property's with Lindsay. You will not find another realtor in the business like her. She does a great job meeting the needs and expectations of her clients. If you choose her to sell or help buy your home you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend .
