When I’m not helping clients or volunteering, you can find me supporting and promoting my favorite charities, working out at the gym (Orange Theory Fitness) entertaining friends and family, cheering on my Steelers, and supporting the amazing restaurants, breweries & wineries here in the Finger Lakes.

Helping people is what I do and when you love what you do, you never work a day in your life!

Lindsay is personable and responsive. I am from the area but now located on the West Coast and she engaged in a search over a few years to find something that suited as a vacation / retirement spot. Lindsay would head out to some odd houses and send me videos complete with commentary that would have me chuckling and making a quick determination. Flexible, good sense of humor and smart.

Lindsay was wonderful to work with. She is professional, efficient, and made the selling process seamless. She is great at communication and gave us updates throughout the entire process.

Lindsay was a delight to work with! As a new buyer in New York State moving from Pennsylvania, she was a wealth of knowledge on the intricacies of purchasing a home in NY. She was easy to talk to, informative, and helped us move fast when we found our home - giving us a huge leg-up in the process.

I would highly recommend working with her!

Lindsay was a dream to work with! We weren't from from area at all and she was so welcoming and accommodating to everything we needed, especially with COVID and us living 3 hours away. Lindsay was extremely prompt in her responses to first time anxious homebuyers (us lol) She has given excellent recommendations even after closing. I highly recommend Lindsay Hart to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area

Lindsay was very attentive and did a great job with helping me with the sale of my house. She also did a great job of talking me through a lot of my questions and concerns. Very highly recommended!

Lindsay, You were the first realtor I've dealt with in nearly 26 years. You guided me carefully thorough my search and buying of a beautiful house in Trumansburg. From the first house you showed my husband & myself I found you to be a caring sincere person. You guided me carefully to the right property. You were patient with my numerous questions and calls. You made buying a home virtually, easy. Thank you. You are an excellent agent and a very sincere caring woman.

Lindsay helped us sell our cottage in the Finger Lakes. Not only did she price the listing perfectly (while others were lowballing it), she was able to get it sold within 2 weeks at above the asking price. We could not have asked for better service, better representation and a better outcome.

Lindsay was always so helpful and kind from the start! She made our first home buying experience effortless and was always very prompt in making herself available to us whenever we had questions. Whenever Lindsay herself wasn’t available at a time we wanted to go view a new listing she made sure someone on her team could accompany us. She is incredibly knowledgeable about her work and made us ,first time home buyers, much more comfortable with the process. I recommend Lindsay to all my friends and family!

Lindsay was amazing! She helped us sell our home in a matter of days. Lindsay answered all of our questions, offered guidance and was easily accessible through the process. She is an effective communicator and always made us feel comfortable. We would highly recommend her!

Lindsay did a great job of informing me of the process of purchasing a home in Ithaca. She was great about taking care of things and gave great advice on referrals for inspections attorneys etc.

Most importantly she was very prompt in responding to all of my questions and requests. She also did a great job of negotiating and communicating with the sellers agent. I highly recommend Lindsay for your real estate needs.

Lindsay was awesome. She made us comfortable with the process and really listened for what we were looking for. Not only did she listen and help us find the property closest to perfect for us on the market, she found us our house while she was on vacation! This house was only on the market a few days before offers came in and honestly we probably wouldn't have even seen it if she hadn't sent it to us and then coordinated with a colleague to show it to us. She helped us navigate the offer and negotiations, and kept things in perspective the whole time. She was knowledgeable, easy to talk to and responsive through the entire process. It made for a relatively easy and seamless experience. We would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Lindsay is a joy to work with! Not only is she no pressure but she takes pride in making sure the home youre buying is the right fit for you. Thank you Lindsay!

Thank you Lindsay Hart for all of your help. You made this move so easy. Buying a house during COVID was not easy but you and your team made it seamless, stress free, and comforting. If you are looking for a realtor hands down Lindsay is the best!

Lindsay was fantastic. She helped us find a good deal on a house in a seller's market, then was with us every step of the way when difficult sellers complicated the buying process. Lindsay is honest, transparent, and responsive. She made us (first-time home buyers) feel comfortable through the whole process.

After interviewing several real estate agents, we decided to work with Lindsay and so glad we did. Moving up from Philadelphia, she helped us secure temporary housing while we shopped for our house. Throughout the process Lindsay kept us up to date and informed. She has a good knowledge of the local market and the players involved. We have already recommended Lindsay to other friends who are looking in the Finger Lakes area.

Lindsay did a great job from day one right through closing. She came recommended to us and we would not hesitate to do the same. Her knowledge of the area was only second to her honest desire to find the perfect home for her clients. And that’s what she did for us.

We started the process of selling our house with another agency. After 5 months on the market with only a few showings we knew we needed to do something different to move our house. When we met with Lindsay it was obvious she loved her job and making her clients happy. We signed with Lindsay on a Wednesday and by Sunday there were 3 showing. We accepted an offer Monday. She worked with us the entire way. Lindsay stayed in contact right through the closing answering any questions we had and quickly. Buying or selling a home is stressful but with Lindsay she always put us at ease. If I ever need another agent...100% going with Lindsay!

Lindsay did an awesome job for us. She was prompt with all of her communication, and she really understands the market well. There's a reason she is one of the top realtors in the area. Highly Recommended!

Lindsay took us step by step through the process of buying our new home and was very patient with us as we looked at several homes before finding the right one. We would highly recommend Lindsay if you are looking to buy or sell your home.

I highly recommend working with Lindsay if you are interested in purchasing a home. Being a first time homebuyer I expected the process to be stressful. My experience with Lindsay was quite the opposite. She went above and beyond to help me along the way, the entire time keeping my interests at the forefront. We found the perfect place in the most ideal location and closed within days of our target date. The love Lindsay has for her work makes you feel like you have a friend alongside for the journey.

I feel very fortunate to have worked with Lindsay and would recommend her without reservation. She has her finger on the pulse of the market, came to our first meeting with all the information I needed toward making an informed decision about selling my home. Lindsay shared her expertise about market trends in my neighborhood, took beautiful photos, hosted an open house and helped to sell my home in 12 days. Lindsay is both a consummate professional and a wonderful person.

Lindsay knows Trumansburg! If you are considering buying or selling in Tompkins County, particularly on the west side of Ithaca, you should give Lindsay a call. Nobody knows the "in's and out's" of this subregion better. She has a great knowledge of the demographics and has worked with many clients with great results. Hiring Lindsay as my buying or selling agent is a "no-brainer"!

Owner of Green Leaf landscaping company
Being the owner of a landscape company, I have recommended Lindsay Hart to all my
clients that wanted to list there homes for sale. I know that she is ambitious,
knowledgeable, and cares for each
one of her clients and meets there specific needs. She truly stands above anyone in the area and when it’s time for me to sell my
home, or buy a house, she will be my pick for a realtor who I know will do a great job!

I chose you to list our family home because I felt you had the best grasp of the current Whig Street real estate market at that time and you were enthusiastic to represent the property. I did not get the same feeling from another agent that my sister had asked to evaluate our home… It did take three seasons to sell the property, but the first year I set the selling price too high (should have listened to your sage advice, my fault).... I thought your approach to selling the property was always professional…e.g …accurate explanation of documents to sign, notification of showings, keeping me informed of current market conditions, and determination to get the property sold.

I asked Lindsay to list my house in our very small town, thinking it would take months to sell. NO, 37 days, full ask, I was shocked and elated at the same time. We moved into an apartment and decided that we didn't like apartment life so again I asked Lindsay to help us find a house with a twist, I needed to find a home that could also accommodate a family member that would like their own space. She again was right on it and within a few days found the house we needed. She always took my calls, talked me off a ledge or 2 thru the processes, and explained the few things i didn't understand. Couldn't ask for someone better to sell or buy a home with.
