When it was time to put our home on the market, our financial advisor recommended we contact Erika Kauffman and Buffy Gunter from The Kauffman Group, Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes. After an initial email inquiry, Erika and Buffy immediately contacted us and arranged to come to our home. Both women are true professionals - friendly, approachable, and extremely knowledgeable about every phase of selling a home. Both women ensured we understood everything we needed to know about the process of readying a home for sale and what selling a house successfully needed to include. Their understanding of the housing markets in our area was exceptional, and they priced our house perfectly to match the current selling trends in our area. When our house went on the market in late January, we received four written offers within 30 hours with two offers over list price! Erika’s and Buffy’s patience answering our many questions and emails was incredibly helpful during the stressful time getting our house ready for market and scheduling showings. They advised us how to best evaluate the offers we received, and how to interpret the language in contracts and documents we needed to sign. They consistently supported and advised us from our very first meeting all the way through to the final closing date and after. Erika and Buffy are the ultimate professional realtors. We worked together seamlessly as a team which in the end ensured a very successful and fast home sale for us. If you are looking for realtors who understand our local Kansas City housing markets inside and out on both sides of the state line, know how to help you successfully navigate the often-choppy waters of selling or buying a home, and in the end ensure you have the best experience possible, then I highly recommend working with Erika Kauffman and Buffy Gunter.

Buffy was great with helping us hunt for houses from out of state. When we arrived to town, Buffy had a list of homes for us to look at and was committed to accompanying us during all of the visits. Buffy was very considerate of our time and made sure she was available to meet our aggressive house hunting schedule. Buffy was not only extremely knowledgeable about the area, but was also able to provide information about the history and proposed future for the areas we were interested in. Working with Buffy was a pleasure and she was definitely the reason we were able to find our home in the location and budget we wanted. Thank you, Buffy.

This is the 3rd time we have worked with Erika Kauffman and Buffy Gunter and as always, they did a great job for us. Previously, they helped us buy our lake house at Lake Lotawana and also helped us buy our teardown, rebuild new home in Prairie Village. Erika and Buffy do a great job of outlining the entire process from the beginning and helped us establish a schedule and stick to it. They brought in an excellent stager to prepare the house for sale, advised us on the best ways to declutter and freshen up the house for showings, arranged to have excellent pictures taken, provided great advice on pricing the listing, etc...We received 3 offers all over asking price in less than 48 hours of listing. Erika provided great advice on responding to the offers and helping drive the negotiation to a very successful conclusion - we ended up getting $13K over our asking price! I would wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Erika and Buffy to anyone looking to buy, sell, or build a home. They do a great job and are experts on the entire process from start to finish. And they help make an otherwise stressful process fairly enjoyable and fun!
