Client Testimonials for Inspired Homes
ASHLEY LEADER is absolutely phenomenal! In an otherwise crazy seller's market, we were able to purchase our first home with ease because Ashley went the extra mile. She stayed in touch with us constantly throughout the process no matter the time of day. She always found time for us. We were completely inexperienced and new to the home-buying process. We had so many questions and often requested suggestions/advice. Ashley was always quick to respond with helpful tips and contacts. Then she'd follow up to ensure everything was satisfactory. What otherwise would or should have been overwhelming to us given the market, seemed almost way too easy thanks to her guidance and coaching along the way. If you're looking for an experienced, extremely knowledgeable, and professional realtor who will treat you like family - work with Ashley Leader! From search until close and beyond . . . she'll be your coach and cheerleader every step of the way. THANK YOU ASHLEY!!!
Wonderful people to work with. Very easy, no hassel, above and beyond.
I love to work with this group of great people. Erin is the best and very knowledgeable. She can help you with all of you real estate needs.
My girlfriend and I just bought our first home, and being first time homeowners we were so grateful for the knowledge that Kirstyn was willing and able to share with us as we moved through the buying process. We felt very cared for and knew she would guide us in the right direction. Not only did she help us find the perfect home, she also connected us with a fantastic lender and an affordable insurance agent. We did not know what we did not know when it came to real estate, but that was ok because we did know we were in expert hands. Kirstyn is the bomb!!!
"I have been working with Ashley and she has been amazing!! Super patient and easy to communicate with. Highly highly recommend them for your next home purchase."
Working with Diane Bennett and her team was a wonderful experience. The inspired team was well versed in a total turnkey approach helping with home repairs, selling home goods, assisting in moving to a new state.
One house and we were sold! Linda Demel knew just what our family needed. We saw one house and knew it was right for us. She is a great and faithful friend as well as a professional and caring realtor. Thank you Linda!
i love working with the entire team. They are all professional and have the highest possible integrity.
Inspired is fantastic! I bought and sold my first home through them, and I was deeply impressed by their professionalism. They helped with staging (for free!) and took fabulous pictures. My realtor, Linda, helped me navigate a tricky multi-bid offer situation, and she was incredibly kind and patient, even though I was often anxious. I have recommended them before, and I would recommend again!
Inspired has helped us sell and buy 3 homes, in Michigan and Indiana. They are the best! I used Kim Powell in Indiana and Ashley Leader in Michigan and both did a wonderful job. They were informative, attentive, timely, and always available to help when needed. If I forgot to do something, they made sure it was done. Audrey did a wonderful job staging the homes as well. You all make buying and selling a home a much better process. Great job and I highly recommend them!
Inspired sold a condo for us after a parent died. They handled that as a project that the entire team was aware of and plugged into tasks. They were helpful with the paperwork, they interacted with the HOA, about every 3 days I was contacted with follow up, updates, clarifications, feedback. They not only took the listing, but "worked it" via social media, and contacting others in their industry that they knew would like the specs of the condo. We had easily 25 showings in the first many days, their reach was fantastic, and they had smart follow up. I would strongly recommend this team.
Kim Powell is amazing, astonishing, upfront, patient, and honest, which makes her a great agent to work with. She went above and beyond to help us find our dream home, and we are grateful beyond words.
She is fantastic! Knowledgeable, creative, supportive, truthful, and, above all, kind. We have purchased several homes with Kim both for our personal home and as investments, and all experiences were great. She was awesome from beginning to end, and we will never use another agent or broker. We recommend her to anyone we know who is buying it selling a home.
Ashley Leader is amazing! She goes above and beyond your stereotypical realtor. Her compassion and work ethic don’t stop when the contract is signed . She was patient and understanding as we searched for our new home and once we found the one we wanted she walked us through everything. Finding her and listening to her guidance from the get go made our home buying experience a pleasant experience. We are in our dream home and couldn’t be happier and We are eternally grateful for her guidance and compassion and hard work! If it is buying , selling or anything in reference to your home , Ashley is the best!
Great staff, loved working with Kirstyn. Made sure all questions were answered and very accommodating! What an amazing team, would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling, they will get the job done for you! Very blessed to have them sell my home
From the very beginning, Ashley was very professional and responsive. She was dedicated and worked very hard to find us our perfect home. Her time, her energy, and her encouragement helped lead us into the right path for our family. We thank God for this experience.2019
Thankful for Dale and the team at Inspired homes! Dale helped us find the perfect house and the team worked well together to make the process smooth and painless. Great realtor - great team! A+
Ashley was amazing! She helped me know what needed done to sell my home. She helped stage the home. From listing to a signed agreement was 3 days! Ashley will get your house sold and make it as easy as possible. I highly recommend her and her entire team!
I worked with Kirstyn to buy my newest home. I have bought and sold several homes over the past few years and this experience tops the list. Kirstyn is so responsive, flexible and really cares about finding the right home...not just getting a deal done. I would not work with anyone else.
Ashley was very helpful throughout the entire home buying process. When buying our first home, she made what we imagined would be an extremely stressful and difficult process, very easy and intuitive.
Linda Demel was fantastic in helping me buying my first condo! She patiently showed me various properties until I found the right one, she answered my questions, and she walked with me through the different steps involved in the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new home.
I would highly recommend Ashley. She was easy to contact, and quick to respond to emails and texts. She gave great recommendations and in the end, our house sold quickly and we made out much better than we expected!
Nothing but excellent service and professionalism when it came to Kim Powell. Kim was sincere and helpful from beginning to end in our buying and selling experience. She was very flexible with her time, and her availability when we requested to visit the properties was awesome. She gave us her honest view, which helped making a life changing decision less stressful. We would have been lost without her. Thank you, Kim for everything you did for us!
Ashley was a joy to work with. She puts everything into her job and goes to bat for her clients. Her positive attitude is contagious and her negotiating skills are spot on. We would highly recommend Ashley Leader if you plan on buying or selling your home.
Professional,ethical with strong values.
Ashley was a blessing for us. Previously we had listed with a different realtor for over 6 months with no results. After signing with Ashley, due to her skill, professionalism and sincerity, we received multiple offers within a month.
I recently closed on my very first home. Kim and the Inspired Team came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. I was a first time homeowner with zero knowledge or experience in the home buying process. Kim walked me through the entire process and introduced me to all the right people to make the experience nearly hassle free. From the home inspector (Scott Bennett @ WIN) to the lender (Alan Butt @ Ruoff) I always felt I was in excellent hands. If you are considering buying or selling a home don't look to anyone else. Call the Inspired Team, they are all about YOU!
Ashley is a blessing and made our buying experience flawless. No surprises and a pleasure to work with. She helped us find a perfect starter home. We were very busy at work and could not tour the home in person so she recorded a video walk through and got it to us immediately. We probably would have lost the home if she hadn’t done the video since it allowed us to be comfortable making an offer so quickly without even physically touring the home. Thanks Ashley!
We had a great experience working with Diane Bennet in selling our home. She worked hard and was imaginative in her marketing and accessible and responsive to our questions!
Diane and her team @homesbyInspiRED are by far the best in the business - caring for their client long past the sale and/or purchase of your home. If you're looking for a realtor that knows her business and is all about you - contact Diane!
My now husband and I purchased our first home in the spring of 2015! With a soon expiring apartment lease, which only seemed to be increasing in price, it was time to start looking for a home, and quick! Being total newbies to home buying, we reached out to Kim Powell with the inspired team and she couldn’t have made the process go any smoother! Prior to starting, it seemed as if we had only heard horror stories about purchasing a first house and were anxious that something would fall through or not go as planned. Throughout the entire process we felt as if our wishes and concerns were heard, questions were answered, and we never once felt pressured into anything. She was clearly on OUR team! Within 2 weeks the offer on our favorite house was accepted and we were home owners! Ever since our experience we’ve said many times over that when it’s time to move onto the next house we will without a doubt or question be using the inspired team!!!!!
I had the delightful pleasure of working with Diane and Kim in the sale of my home in South Bend. While I was 'sold' on the concept of working with a team to get the job done, I came to realize that I was definitely an integral member of t h e TEAM as well. I listened to and followed their expert advise, including staging of my home. It sold in 5 weeks!!! I had listed it with another realtor prior to Inspired...and it sat on the market without an offer for about 8 months. My advice to others: Get with Inspired and follow their advice!
Linda and her team were a great help with finding my Fiancé and I our first home. Linda was quick to get us in and look at houses and helped us look out for stuff that we would not have thought of when looking at homes. She is all about her clients and I would recommend anyone to work with her and her team at Inspired Homes!
I was the mortgage lender assisting my clients on the purchase of their new home when I met Erin Simpson at Inspired Homes. I really appreciated her and her assistant Melanie for their expediency in getting any documents needed to me! Makes the process smooth! They both were very pleasant to work with!
My husband and I are working with Linda on purchasing our first home, and I highly recommend working with her! Linda is highly skilled in her field. Her attention to detail, industry experience, and sales experience are exactly what I look for in a realtor. Whether you are a first time buyer or experienced homeowner, I highly recommend working with Linda and her team.
We have worked with Linda on purchasing two homes and selling one. She is everything you would want in a real estate agent: professional, polite, attentive, available, experienced, punctual, and a great communicator. She is incredibly easy to work with and will always have your best interest at heart. I would absolutely recommend Linda or anyone from the Inspired Homes team.
Kimberlee Powell was referred to me from a friend. I had so much fun working with her. She always responded quickly by text/email when I had a question. She is very prompt and organized, and went above and beyond to make me win my offer. She even checked in on me after I moved in and said if I needed any additional resources she would send me information. She has a passion for what she does and a kind spirit.
We’ve sold two homes with the help of Linda Demel. I would challenge anyone to introduce me to a realtor that brings the level of professionalism, vision and integrity that Linda exhibits. I know her success is due in part to the administrative work Melanie takes care of so Linda can focus on her clients. Thanks for all your help.
I have worked with Linda Demel on several transactions throughout the years. Linda has always been so patient in the process and very knowledgeable in navigating issues from beginning to end! I send all my family and friends to her as she will get the job done in a caring and professional manner. Even after our transaction is complete Linda will follow up to be sure you are happy!
We worked with Kim Powell and had the best experience! She was so patient when we got overwhelmed and didn’t give up until we were able to find a home in this crazy market! We relocated from Georgia so we appreciated her flexibility with showings. We highly recommend working with her.
When looking to purchase or sell your home, Look no further than Inspired Homes. Not your average brokerage, built on faith values, with an entire team prepared and experienced to service your every need. I have had experience as a mortgage lender serving mutual clients with both Steve Dregits & Kim Powell, but also neighbored to numerous homes that praise Inspired Homes, along with interactions with others from the Inspired team - Highly recommend.
Linda Demel is FANTASTIC! Genuine, honest and so patient! My mom sold her home of 46 years and Linda was with her every step of the way and also helped to find her the perfect little doll house for her to move to. Grateful to have met Linda and would HIGHLY recommend her! Five Star experience with Inspired Homes and Linda Demel!
We felt very supported and loved during the whole home buying and selling process. We are grateful to Steve and the rest of the Inspired Homes team for making what is often a extremely stressful situation, much easier. I highly recommend them! Thank you!
Purchased a home with Linda Demel. She walked me through the process and basically held my hand for every decision during a stressful time. I have lost track of how many homes we viewed together and how many offers were considered before we made it to closing. Everything she did was great, reducing my stress in very uncertain times. She went above and beyond help me get the house I moved my family into. I couldn’t have made it through without her expertise and kindness!! Whenever I called to talk to Melanie in the office, she was able to find an answer to my question, print something I needed, or set up everything that Linda And I requested to finalize the purchase. She is such an asset to the team!! Thank you all!!
I have been thoroughly impressed by the professionalism, kindness and knowledge that Erin and her team have in helping families like mine buy and sell their homes. We could not be happier with all the work Erin and Melanie do in helping families in our area.
Kim was born to make people feel comfortable and at ease, even during a very complicated and emotional situation like selling a beloved home of 18 years. She took care of us from start to finish, answering questions and making things easy for us along the way. We are very grateful for her heart for serving her clients. I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling their home.
I was a first time home buyer and I had an amazing experience with Inspired Homes. My agent Steve Dregits was wonderful he took time to answer all my questions and walked me through the whole process. I will recommend Inspired Home to everyone. They also gave me the sweetest Christmas ornament with my new house address! Wonderful company and wonderful staff!!
The Inspired Team were incredible during the process of my wife and I buying our first home. We are so happy with their service & their staff. They are an amazing group of people & realtors!
Diane, and her team, are exceptional in the following ways: 1) An active listener who ascertains the needs and wants of the clients; 2) A compassionate agent who values the clients and their families; and 3) An hyper thorough in completing tasks and following through with thoughtful communication.
I have worked with other real estate agents who are “smooth talkers,” looking to make the quick buck, but Diane is the antithesis; instead, she exemplies genuine and committed and professional qualities. Even though we neither sold or bought a house as we decided to stay in our current home, she nonetheless took us on as a seller and as a buyer, working diligently even on the weekends and evening hours. I was happy that my family decided to stay in our current home, but if I ever decided to relocate, Diane would be the only choice for my family as I know she would do right by us.
We love Inspired Homes! Kirstyn was amazing to work with in every way! We would highly recommend to anyone and everyone! Buying a house is stressful but they made the process so much easier. Couldn't have been happier with their services.
We recently used Erin Simpson and her team at Inspired Homes to purchase a new house and sell our old one. She was fabulous to work with as was the rest of her team who helped us out. I highly recommend both Erin and the rest of the Inspired team if you are looking to either buy or sell a house.
Amazing Company that WORKS for you!!! Outstanding group of people!!!
Great people here who are willing to help find you a new home 😁
Diane is amazing! Highly recommend working with her!
Diane and her team are trustworthy, honest and intentional and in their work!
Our experience working with Linda was great! Super helpful and friendly staff!!
Diane Kreager was terrific and made the entire home buying process easy and fun!
One of the best realtors in the area! Diane and her team are incredible, experienced and passionate. You will not regret your decision to go with them!
I did a team training for Inspired a few weeks ago. What a thoughtful bunch of people! I would recommend them for anyone buying or selling a home in the South Bend/ Michiana area!
We’ve worked with Kim Powell twice now in the Elkhart area and cannot recommend her enough!
The team is dedicated and unified behind a goal of providing customer service which is above reproach. A truly exceptional experience is all that can be expected from the faith based team which will support you through your home sale or search. Thank you Dianne for all your hard work.
Kim was an amazing buyer's agent - patient, kind, knowledgeable, and so willing to share her detailed knowledge of the South Bend/Michiana area. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her, and she made our buying process seamless. Her entire office worked with her to provide all that we needed in a timely manner. We can't recommend her highly enough!
Kim worked diligently to be sure the buying/selling transaction went off without a hitch. She was considerate of our time, helped with the inspections and with the results. She is very personable and very professional at the same time. I highly recommend Kim Powell to anyone looking to work with a great realtor
I recently purchased a home. Kim was my amazing agent. I am an older home buyer with many questions and concerns through this modern day process. She was so understanding and kind. I bought my house and I thank Kim for being there. It is perfect for me and she knew that.
Kim was excellent to work with, and we would do so again! Early on in the sales process, she made recommendations in regards to improving our home so that we were market-ready. She was responsive to our needs while balancing the reality of the market. She was honest, transparent, and a true partner in the process.
I truly believe my husband and I wouldn't have made it through the home buying process without Kistryn's guidance. She was extremely responsive and always kept our best interest at heart through the house shopping phase until contract closing. She's the best out there!
My wife and I found our dream home in Granger, IN, which we were only able to acquire because of Kim's knowledge and expertise. We had a very difficult transaction laden with hurdles to overcome based on the condition of the property and Kim and team did a great job helping all parties whether the storm and close on the deal. She was always available day or night to handle situations as they arose and provided the personal touch which really kept everyone at ease. I highly recommend her services for your home buying endeavors.
We recently completed our fifth transaction with Kim. She is always helpful, fair and honest. She has a heart for serving and helping people and it shows in her work. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Thanks, Kim!
Kim was absolutely awesome to work with. She took everything we said into consideration and found us the best house we could have asked for. She still helps out with small stuff even after closing on our new house. It is hard to find people like her that go above and beyond even if there is no benefit to her.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Kim. Kim and her team were amazing in selling my home in record time! She was knowledgeable, professional, and a great communicator. I highly recommend Kim to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.
Kim is simply the best agent I’ve ever worked with. If you want quality service from an experienced agent who always work in your best interest, Kim is your woman! She is extremely professional, listened to my wants and needs in a home, and helped me find the perfect home for my family and I. Not only did Kim find me a home to live in she also sold a previous home for me before. And that process went smoothly also. She offer services above and beyond and I would highly recommend her!!
I was fortunate to stumble across Kim to be my realtor. She is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and makes the home buying experience thoroughly enjoyable. I was impressed with Kim and how available she made herself throughout my buying process, even though I knew she had a busy schedule. Her knowledge is at an expert level, and she has the ability to work with the seller and get the most out of them according to inspection results. Kim never pressured me into anything I didn't absolutely love, and was extremely helpful in pointing out any negative aspects of properties that could/would have made my home owning experience less enjoyable or that could have caused me strife throughout the life of the home. I am extremely grateful I got to know Kim. She really makes you feel like not only a client, but a friend. If you're in the market, contact Kim!!
We sold a home 7 years ago with Kim and again this past year. She did a fabulous job and I would recommend her again. She was available when needed, had paperwork ready on time, called to remind me of things, helped with the staging of the home and helped with negotiations and getting the most money for each home.
Ashley is a very sincere and compassionate professional. I would highly recommend her and the entire Inspire Team! Her knowledge help guide me through a difficult transaction that we completed to everyone's satisfaction.
Ashley was great!!! She was very patient and helpful in answering questions if we didn’t understand. My mother in law was moving from her condo and Ashley took the initiative in helping and suggesting how the house should be staged, using some of her own items to help make the place look great for the open house. She also kept us up to date with things that were happening after an offer was made. Thanks for everything Ashley!!!
Extremely helpful added with the stagers and photographer we had an offer the first day on the market! From listing to closing to even checking on me in a different state in my new home Ashley was fantastic.
Working with Ashley was a pleasure. Her care and responsiveness were excellent. Her marketing strategies and networking were most impressive, I sold my home on the first showing eliminating a potentially long process. She made sure the buyer was financially qualified before setting up the first showing. Ashley responded immediately to questions, she also used DocuSign, providing the secure and fast execution of documentation. The journey with Ashley was compassionate and professional. Not only do I have a realtor I will use again but I gained a lifelong friend.
Wow! We got to work with Kyle Firestein, and he honestly made buying a house such a breeze! My husband and I were new to home buying, but Kyle was both professional and personable! So patient, and very flexible with our schedules. He never made us feel uncomfortable and helped us every step of the way! Kyle was extremely helpful, open, transparent, and reliable through the whole process. He really cared about us, understood our needs from the very first house we looked at, even gave us ideas on how to better utilize the space. He streamlined the process, and made everything feel simple. 10/10, would recommend!! Thanks, Kyle!
"Linda Demel has been a trusted agent of mine for years. I recommend her to anyone searching for a kind, hardworking, trustworthy agent. Melanie is her admin and is a total rockstar. Transparent and timely communication at all times. Both of these ladies made our experiences a smooth process, both when it was a buyer’s market and a seller’s market over the years. We adore how they fought for our best! "
"Inspired Homes is an amazing and honest company! While I have never bought or sold a home through them yet, I have spoken with one of the team members, Trina, multiple times for advice about home buying. Trust and integrity are important characteristics for realtor companies and I would trust any team member at Inspired Homes to be open and honest with me and to work to help me in the home buying process!"
"Erin Simpson is phenomenal to work with. She keeps the best interest of her clients in mind throughout the process, and she works hard to make the home buying/selling experience smooth. I highly recommend using Erin at Inspired Homes to anyone looking to buy or sell! "
"My family could not have been happier with our experience with Inspired Homes. Our realtor was Steve Dregits and he did an amazing job walking us through the process and answering any questions that we had. He worked hard with his entire team to get our house sold and find us our new home! I would definitely recommend Steve Dregits with Inspired Homes to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. "
"I've gotten to know the majority of the team at Inspired homes over the last year and can say that their team is wonderful all across the board! I would recommend them to anyone! They're proactive, response, and knowledgeable about their field of work. They are definitely a partner of mine for life! :)"
"I have been working with Cathy Compton Pormen for about a year now and I would highly recommend her as a realtor and she just an outstanding person that will go the extra mile for the families she serves. She is very professional and has extensive knowledge of the market. "
