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!

- Alex Hokanson

i love working with the entire team. They are all professional and have the highest possible integrity.

- Alan Butt

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!

- Elena Royal

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!

- Roxanne Wolfram

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.

- Steve Stogdill

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.

- Carrie Erlin

- Tamara Jennings

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+

- Todd Benkert

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.

- Pamela Hansel

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.

- Elizabeth Bowser

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!

- Todd Fizer

Professional,ethical with strong values.

- Darryl Conners

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!

- Kyle Stroinski

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!

- Kelly Gonderman

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!

- Steve Etner

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!!!!!

- Paige Cisna

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!

- Christine Swanson

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!

- Mikim Phan

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.

- Kayla Meinerding

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.

- Rachel Cox

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.

- Ronetta Lane

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.

- Bd Stretch

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!

- Julie Ortega-Schmitt

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.

- Hannah Fox-Welter

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.

- Brandon Williamson

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!

- Melissa Hopson

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!

- Tyler Popa

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!!

- Wendy Nash

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.

- Chris Elmerick

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!!

- Alison Mullinax

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!

- Dan Czajkowski
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.
- Callie Oneese

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.

- Adara Smith
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.

- Ian Schrader

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!

- Raven and Andrew Kaluf

"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! " 

- Kara Wood

"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!"
