Lindsay Hart

The Hart of the Hart & Homes Team

20 years ago I chose to make Ithaca, NY my home when I moved from southern, rural Pennsylvania to attend Ithaca College and graduate from the Park School of Communications. And I have been affiliated with RE/MAX since I began in real estate.

Armed with 13 years experience & knowledge of the real estate market and of the industry as a whole, I can skillfully and diplomatically, negotiate and advocate on your behalf, guiding you through the process and communicating with you throughout.

I love helping people with their real estate needs! If you’ll give me the opportunity to work with you to sell your home or help you buy one, I will be honest, down to earth, fun and informative, while we work together to get you what you want, or as close to it as possible!
I live in Trumansburg and naturally, by living, raising a family, and volunteering here, I have a penchant for properties and the real estate market in Trumansburg; but I have listed and sold properties all over Ithaca and Tompkins, Cayuga, Tioga, Chemung, Seneca, and Schuyler Counties.

I am humbled and honored to be Ithaca’s 2017 REALTOR of the Year.
I have also received the Ithaca Journal’s Reader’s Choice Award for one of the best real estate agents three years in a row, the Ithaca Board of REALTORS President’s award, RE/MAX’s 100% club and am a 2017 RE/MAX Hall of Fame Inductee.

I am the NYSAR Southern Tier Regional Vice President for 2019. I have served as the Ithaca Board of REALTORS local director (2011-13) Secretary/Treasurer (2014) President-Elect (2015), President (2016), Past-President (2017-18). I was also NYSAR’s Southern Tier Region RPAC trustee (2016-17) and volunteered on numerous other local committees. I am a member of the Trumansburg Area Chamber of Commerce and have served on its board of directors.

My career is a passion; it's not a 'job' when you love what you do.

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.

Lindsay was very helpful when I was buying my first house. She had answers to my questions, and if she didn't, she would find the answers for me. She was great with communicating with both me and the seller. Very friendly and trustworthy. I will definitely be calling her when I need to buy again!

Lindsay was our buyers agent when my wife and I purchased a rental property. From start to finish she was nothing short of amazing. It was our first rental property and she answered every question we had quickly and accurately. We ran into a few snags with the property after an inspection and with her help we were able to get through them seamlessly. Without a doubt Lindsay will be our go to real estate agent moving forward

Lindsey is one of the most approachable people I know!! When I am ready to buy my first home she is definitely the one I am going to call!!

Lindsay was fantastic! We put 4 houses on the market, and she was amazing at keeping them all straight, getting info to us, and best of all --selling them all! 😁 She was completely accessible-- always returning texts or calls immediately, getting all docs prepared, keeping us informed on anything related to the sales. She always had a smile, never showing frustration when issues arose, simply solving the problem.
We would highly recommend Lindsay to anyone buying or selling property !

Lindsay was the buyers agent for our first investment property in Trumansburg. It was a small deal that was handled with a great deal of professionalism. Her willingness to handle multiple showings and any questions we had about this purchase made our buying experience very pleasant and hassle free. If you need a true professional with a deep knowledge of this market, Lindsay should be your agent!

Lindsay was fantastic to work with! We found our dream property and Lindsay made sure the process was smooth and seamless.

Thank you for all your help with our first home purchase. Thanks to you, we did in a few weeks something we thought was years away. If a time comes we decide to sell, you will be our first call.
And thank you for the lovely gifts to top off this "smoking deal!" Thank you!

Lindsay has amazingly detailed knowledge of the Ithaca area. She treated me like a million dollars even though my property was small potatoes. She was super responsive and thorough through every step of the process. Can't recommend her highly enough. I would give her extra stars if it let me!

Owner Covert Cottage
The spring of 2013 my sister and I where looking for a Realtor to manage our family cottage for the rental season and we found Lindsay, talk about lucky! Over the last five years Lindsay took total control and managed everything for us, as I live in Delaware and my sister in Texas. Lindsay provided great service to our tenants, handled all the leases, money, repairs, and strange tenant request, as well as dealing with us! The second year we had all sorts of issues, no water pressure, no hot water, etc. Lindsay went the extra mile and even called me from the water pump cabinet and tried to prime the pump to restore water pressure, all in high heals! Lindsay always responded to our emails, calls, texts as well as recommended contractors (Lawn, tree service, septic, electrical, etc.) we needed in a very timely manner! Lindsay was very compasionate when both our parents passed as well. We love Lindsay and highly recommend her! If your looking for an honest, hard working, kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable Realtor, Lindsay Hart is who you want!
