After meeting with a couple of real estate agents we picked Cynthia as our agent of choice. For several reasons… For her expertise in the local real estate market. For her assessment of what the property should be priced at (she was the middle price agent). The houses she compared ours to were the closest to the house we were selling versus the other agents. Compared to the other agents, her advice made the most sense. Cynthia was very available to keep us up-to-date, to answer questions, and help us in any way she could. Years ago I sold a house, and Cynthia was one of the REALTORS® who appraised it. We are very happy with our choice of REALTORS®. Cynthia and Kara did a great job.

We really appreciated all the hard work that The Hostetler Team did to produce a sale of our house. They were available to answer our questions at all times since we were living a thousand miles away. They were kind and courteous and we consider them as friends. It was a pleasure doing business with them.

We had such a great experience with these ladies. Their office was in Lagrange but they went to Mishawaka and Fort Wayne to find us the perfect home.

Luke & April Fenwick

Very nice people, would recommend them to all of my friends. They were very up front with things, couldn’t ask for a better team. Thank you so much!

Clarence & Lois Hern

Kara & Cynthia were the most AMAZING Crazy Exceptional Hostetler Listing Agent Team! Truly experts in their field. Attentive to us every step of the way, helping us successfully prepare, list, and sell our home. Full of life and cheer, considerate and respectful, honest and ethical, dedicated and excellent communicators.

We give them 10!!

Heidi Rupley

Working with Kara & Cynthia was absolutely fantastic! They really put the personal touch on every aspect of our purchase; from helping us with home inspection, to setting us up with a wonderful lender. As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and concerns and Kara & Cynthia always responded quickly with an answer.  I highly recommend working with The Hostetler Team for all your realtor needs!

Marc & Stephanie Dunker

The Hostetler Team does not disappoint! The level of professionalism and prompt service offered by Cynthia and Kara is very impressive. During our showings, and through the whole buying process, it was obvious how enthusiastic and devoted they are for their customers, and these showings were always done promptly to the point that it almost seemed that they cleared their schedules just for me! Rely on the market knowledge this team has for your next purchase or sale; you’ll be glad you did!

All the auctioneers and ring clerks and workers are funny, honest, and try their best to get it all right to please bidders and consignees alike!

Rod Lantz was exceptional at selling our homes. We had two houses we needed to sell within a few months of each other. He got them up and sold extremely quickly. He was always available to answer any questions we had and was on top of every task. He went way above and beyond in helping us with every aspect. His calming demeanor was a God-send in a very stressful time. I highly recommend using Rod for any and all REALTOR® needs.
