Luke helped us buy our first home and the process was very easy. He was highly responsive to any questions we had and was easy to work with.
We were very specific about what we wanted in a home and as soon as the house went on the market he gave us a call because he knew it was just what we were looking for and got us a showing right away.
I would gladly recommend Luke to anybody that is trying to buy, sell, or both! ~ Sarah Rugg
Luke helped me to find and buy my first home. I had some frustrating situations until I began working with Luke and he made the process go smoothly. He made sure I was informed of any updates and what the next steps would be. He worked hard to help me out and was always quick to respond to my calls or emails. I would highly recommend working with him
Luke was very professional and very knowledgeable. He was willing to do whatever we asked. He was patient with us and never complained when we couldn't make up our minds. We put 3 offers in for different houses and Luke always had a good attitude about things. We are very grateful for Luke and his team! They put a lot of time and effort into helping us have a good buying experience! I highly recommend Luke Bouman and his team!
Luke helped us both sell our old house and buy a new one. Both had some difficult issues, but Luke helped guide us through the process. We would recommend him highly.
Luke helped us step-by-step in purchasing our first home which was a foreclosure. He was professional, helpful, honest, and dependable. Without his guidance, we would have been lost in the homebuying process. Even after purchasing our house, we have worked with him on a few occasions about various foreclosure issues. He still is more than willing to help us out! His resources have been invaluable to us! We would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!
Luke's team was very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the process. I was buying a 2-famly rental property and he was able to get a great price as well as give me recommendations on what areas of the property should be improved. I was able to have both sides rented within the first month and the property is currently cash-flowing. I would recommend Luke's Team to anyone looking for investment real estate!
My wife and I could not have been more impressed with the professionalism and expertise shown by the Luke Bouman team. Every question we had was answered promptly and the dedication to helping us find the right house was truly amazing. This is a great team to work with and I would give them the highest recommendation.
The Luke Bouman team did a fantastic job selling our home. They responded quickly whenever we had a question. If you want a great real estate agent/team you can count on them. Thanks!
Luke was very helpful through the whole process of buying our first home. After showing us close to 25 homes he found a FSBO. We did not feel any pressure to pursue any of the homes that we looked at. We have lived in our home for almost 2 years, and we have never felt remorse of our decision. He will do whatever it takes to find you a home you will love.
Luke is friendly, prompt, and professional. He knows his stuff. He even responded promptly on week-ends and sometimes during his family vacations. He was also open to suggestions when he took pictures of our homes, and as to where we wanted him to market. We would use him again, if we even need another realtor.
My wife and I tried to sell our house buy owner for 4 months with little success. Luke had a buy sell agreement signed within 7 days. He was helpful with everything and it made the selling process stress free. We could not have been more satisfied with his service and we both said we should have should have called him sooner.
Luke was great to work with, he takes the time to answer all questions and is very thorough, organized and responsive. He was recommended to me and I would absolutely recommend him to others! He worked hard for a 'quick and painless' sale that made the process and stress of selling a home, quite easy. Thanks Luke!
Excellent knowledge of the area as he has been a life long resident. Respected our decision process and worked to always answer questions immediately. It was a fun experience to work with Luke and his team. Follow-up after our purchase has been excellent.
It was a pleasure to work with Luke Bouman and his team. Everything that they helped us with went quickly and smoothly. Even the issues we did have with the inspection processes were handled with great care and attention and most of the leg work was done by his team and all we had to do was agree to the plan of action and sign the necessary forms. We would absolutely recommend Luke and his team to anyone that we know who is buying or selling a home.
Luke did a great job helping us find a cottage that fit our needs. He was in constant communication with us and set up multiple house tours to help us find the perfect place. Luke is very easy to work with and get along with. He is also a very hard worker. We look forward to working with him in the future!
Luke went after it for us. He wouldn't be denied until he found us the right house and he did it with grace and a humble spirit. We bought the house whle we were still in Arizona. Luke went through the house with a video camera and showed all of it to us in detail. He knows the West MI market and was able to give us good choices within what we were looking for, the process of buying the house was smooth with NO speed bumps, he was always prompt.
Luke was great to work with in selling my parents home. His responsiveness to any of my inquiries and his constant communication and progress updates would lead me to recommend Luke to anyone buying or selling a home. Having previously worked with several other realtors on the project with no positive results, it was pleasingly refreshing to work with Luke to complete the transaction in a timely manner.
Luke was very knowledgable about the Holland Area. We were able to view all the homes we wanted to on short notice. We were looking for a 2nd home, so we live a few hours away, and Luke was very flexible with his time.
My wife and I were extremely happy with our home buying experience with Luke. I won't be buying another home through anyone other than him. Luke's work ethic is unparalleled and is quite a rarity today. Very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend. You will not be disappointed.
A very approachable and friendly realtor who listens and works with your needs. He is knowledgeable of West Michigan, and his relaxed approach gives you the feeling of a comfortable friend. We enjoyed working with him through the entire home buying experience.
If I can say one thing about Luke Bouman it's that he works for his clients. Luke is attentive to what you are looking for and works tirelessly to see you are satisfied. Although he is very busy, we have never had a time when he was not able to get back with us within a very satisfactory time and manner. We have been involved in two real estate transactions with him as our realtor and recommend him to all our friends and family who are either buying or selling homes in the Holland and surrounding areas.
We were looking at a certain house and when we finished Luke said we should take a look at this other house that was for sale about 2 block away in the same sub division. Low and behold it happened to be the one we bought !!
Luke did a fantastic job selling our home. He has an impressive marketing program and his client communication is second to none. He made sure we understood everything in the closing process. I would highly recommend Luke to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I was very pleased with the work that Luke Bouman provided us. He was very thorough and was very knowlegeable. I enjoyed working with him and we sold my Mom's house rather quickly.
Luke had an offer on my house within 2 weeks of listing it, we did not take the offer or counter offer but he was very supportive and continued to work very hard. He sold my house in 6 months when while a lot of my friends took 2 years to sell their homes with different agents. He was very helpful negotiating price and dates of closing. I will be proud to work witrh him
I was a first time home buyer at 50 years old and very skittish. I knew exactly what I wanted to pay and exactly what I was looking for. Luke made sure he only sent me listings that were within my price range and never "hard sold" me. He was extremely responsive to my "many" questions! I never felt that I couldn't pick up the phone and ask him something, no matter how simple or complex the question might have been. He held my hand through the whole process and still calls to check whether I am happy with my purchase almost two years later. He lets me know that he has contacts that may be able to help me if I am having a problem. Sometimes as a first time home owner the littlest things can be overwhelming. How nice to know that with a phone call to someone like Luke many questions can be answered. He is one stop shopping from listing to sale or buy and beyond!!!
If I could give the Luke Bouman Team 6 stars in each category I would in a heartbeat. Selling our house could not have an easier process as we had a competitive offer on our home (which we eventually accepted) only 2 1/2 hours after signing the paperwork! With a dog, a 10 1/2 month old baby, and full time jobs, my wife and I loved the fact that we were not constantly cleaning our house for multiple showings and we could just relax and enjoy our summer.
The Luke Bouman team was always accessible; answering questions at all times of the day and working through the process with us on a step by step basis. We will most definitely use the Luke Bouman team if we need any real estate help in the future and I highly recommend you do too!
Luke is extremely professional and courteous. Luke did a great job of marketing our house on getting it sold as quickly as possible due to a job transfer. His knowledge of the Holland area and the housing market was very helpful in our process.
Luke sold my parental home in 2009. In a stressed market, Luke worked hard, was thoughtful about multiple possiblities, and displayed thorough knowledge of local conditions. He is a thorougly honest person, and maintains contact at all stages of the sale of a house! Luke is alert and attentive to needs and opportunities, energetic in pursuing leads, and maintains contact with his clitents. One of the particulars of our situation is that I live in Minnesota, so we needed to conduct much of our business via email and telephone--and Luke was superb at every step of the process. I recommend Luke and his team most highly!
Realtor searched tirelessly for a home that matched our tight geographical and financial boundaries. In the end, he found us a home in our desired neighborhood that we'll be happy with for decades to come. Thanks!
If any of you are thinking of buying or selling a home in the Holland/Zeeland area, we would highly recommend our realtor, Luke Bouman. He is easy to work with, readily available, knew exactly how to price and market our home, and communicated early and often about showings to accomodate the fact that we have three very young children. Luke also demonstrated a lot of dedication and determination in helping us pursue (and purchase!) our "dream home," which was not an easy or short transaction by any means! We've very much appreciated his knowledge, work ethic, and Christian integrity in selling our first home and in purchasing our current one, and we know you would, too.
Luke is a very well respected Real Estate Professional who assisted us in the purchase of our property. He worked and helped us through every stage of the process, and his communication skills were key to setting everyone's expectations accordingly. He went above and beyond on every level to make sure our satisfaction was achieved, and was incredibly knowledgeable through the entire process. We will be using him again in the future for any of our real-estate needs.
My wife and i both agree that hiring Luke to help us buy our first home this fall was one of the best things we could have done. He was responsive, knowledgeable, and friendly throughout the process, and really helped us be comfortable in finding a house that was a great value and the right style.
Luke helped me sell my parents' condo at Anchorage and he was such a pleasure to deal with! Reliable, extremely helpful, willing to go above and beyond in every way. His communication skills and follow through are exemplary. He even helped me find a stucco repair person for my own home, just to be a nice guy.
My husband and I had our house for sale by owner for about 3 months and received very little interest. My mother in law suggested Luke as a relator. He came over to our home and walked us through the whole process, he is very professional and friendly. Luke sold out home in 7 days! I highly recommend Luke as a relator!
THIS TEAM WAS VERY ACCOMMODATING. THEY WORKED IN SHOWINGS ON ALL THE DAYS WE WERE ABLE. VERY PROMPT IN COMING UP WITH HOMES IN OUR WISH LIST. BEAUTIFUL OFFICE AND PROFESSIONAL TEAM! QUICKLY GOT IN TOUCH WITH SELLERSWHEN WE HAD QUESTIONS.
Luke worked very hard to help us find the home we were looking for. He was prompt in his responses and in scheduling home viewings. He keeps in touch and has a great work ethic. We would definitely recommend Luke as an Agent.
We both sold ($125k) and purchased ($250k) a home with Luke. We could not have been happier with both transactions. Luke was very reponsive to our needs when selling. We were so excited to sell in only a couple months (back in 2011). When we purchsed our new home, he honestly and expertly guided us through the rocky terrain of purchasing a short sale/forclosure. Thanks to Luke, we are living in our dream home (for far less than we thought possible)!
Luke was very helpful in the entire process and was always available when I had questions and needed quick answers. He also made time for me during late evenings due to my busy schedule. He gets the job done and follows through 100%.
Your website was the ONLY resource we found that could meet our needs as we searched for a home. The polygon search tool allowed us to narrow our hunt to the most relevant neighborhoods, and your "Communities" content was the only truly honest material we could find. Thank you SO much.
We are grateful for Luke's help with our recent real estate transactions. He helped us sell a home and buy another home, this was complicated by the fact that we were living out of state at the time. Luke was extremely helpful in terms of the paperwork and deadlines that needed to be met. We were confident that things would go well with him as our representative, and highly recommend him for your real estate needs.
I listed my condo on Sept. 3, 2013 with Luke and closed on Oct. 9, 2013!!! Luke is awesome at what he does and I highly recommend him! He priced the condo just right for it to be sold fast. The offer I accepted was only $1,000 less than the asking price and was presented to me just three weeks after putting it up for sale. I would never use another realtor. He made everything easy!
Our first real estate sale went far smoother and quicker than we had ever anticipated thanks to the promptness and attentiveness that Luke and his team display in the way they conduct business. We were equally as impressed with Phil, a Buyer Specialist for The Luke Bouman Team, as we transitioned into buying after the quick sale of our home. Phil helped us meet a short deadline and did not encourage us to settle for less than a home that we were extremely excited about! We could not be happier with our experience with The Luke Bouman Team and would highly recommend them to anyone considering a real estate sale or purchase!
We can't thank you enough for all your hard work. Our new home is everything we hoped it would be, and the price you negotiated was great! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family, and will definitely use your services for our next real estate transaction.
My experience with the Luke Bouman team was stellar. My husband and I worked with Phil Bouman, who answered every question, provided helpful advise and moral support throughout the home shopping and buying experience.
On a scale of 1-10......I'd go with "10."
Luke was great in all aspects of the purchasing process. He was very responsive in the many questions we had and worked hard for a great price for us. He comes with a bunch of knowledge that helped us not buy something that would have been unrentable. I would recommend him to anyone.
Luke was very professional and knowledgeable. He was patient and understood our family's needs. Was available to us thru the entire process including being able to refer us to other local business to help in our home purchase.
Moving to a new town is not easy. The Luke Bouman Team worked hard to make our transition run smoothly. Luke's work ethic was refreshing to see. He is very dedicated to his customers and he quickly earned our trust. After really listening to what we wanted, he showed us a variety of homes in our price range and was ever so patient with the many questions we had. Once we had chosen our home, he helped us through the remaining process and followed up every step of the way. Luke continues to contact us to make sure everything is going well. We love our new home and the area that we are in. We would highly recommend the Luke Bouman Team to anyone that needs a realtor. Thanks Luke! Jim & Ellen Sager.
Luke did an excellent job listing and selling our house. He was very helpful. Giving us open an honest Feedback and Input. I would have no problem listing a house with Luke again.
The Luke Bouman team did an exceptional job when it came to listing and selling our home. Luke knew the area well and what we were up against. We were in a hurry to get relocated and he made that dream become a reality.
Luke was upfront, honest and very professional. His ability to follow up and help is outstanding. He called 2 and a half years after he sold my home and found me an additional $600 in tax credit through that sale!!!! He didn't have to do that, but he did. Definitely went the extra mile for us.
We could not be happier with our decision to retain Luke Bouman as our Realtor- both for selling our home and purchasing a new one! He was very accessible and prompt in replying to any inquiries either via email or text. He proved very knowledgeable of the market and had great ideas for strategies both for selling and purchasing- we sold our home for its asking price and were able to purchase the home of our dreams for a great price (even with a competing offer on the table!). He and his team were patient with our many questions along each step of the way and worked hard for us, to make sure every detail was taken care of in a timely manner for closings. We would highly recommend the Luke Bouman Team!!!
Luke is truly a professional. Luke always puts his clients' needs first, and spent countless time trying to ensure that we were happy with our slection for a home. Even when we ran in to difficulties, which is always to be expected, Luke was patient and willing to do whatever it took to make the deal right for us. We would recommend Luke Bouman to a first time buyer, as well as one that is experienced.
Luke not only sold our home is less than two weeks, but also helped my wife and I find our dream home! Working with Luke and his team was a great experience. They were always right on top of things, very informative of things we did not understand, and did them with our best interest at heart. The selling experience happened so fast that it did not seem real, and looking for a new house is always a fun experience. Luke was very patient and willing to work around our schedule in order to look at as many different houses as we wanted. He did a great job of narrowing down the house hunt when we gave him our wish list. When we found our dream home, Luke did a great job negotiating and we ended up purchasing the home for a lot less than what we originally thought. All-in-all I would highly recommend Luke and his team whenever you are ready to either buy or sell your home. You can't go wrong with the Luke Bouman Team.
Luke gave a complete and honest approach to our listing process; showing comparables and discussing opportunities. He provided a competent stager who we followed verbatim. Luke guided the first two qualified buyers to a purchase within six months. We could not have asked for more.
We know Luke as a highly skilled real estate agent.
Burt and Linda McRoy
Such a great team to work with! They were very thorough and easily accessible whenever I needed them. I'll choose them anytime I buy a house! I bought a house with Phil... He's great!
Luke Bouman was an excellent realtor to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the housing market. He also listened to our desires for what we wanted in a house. We are extremely happy with our home and would definitely use Luke for any future home purchases and sales.
It seemed like Luke and his team were ALWAYS on the job. Their communication was superb, always keeping me abreast of the status of the sale. I would highly recommend him to my family and anyone else that might be looking to sell/buy a home.
In the years that we have had Luke Bouman as our realtor, we have been impressed with the way he has handled all aspects of our real estate transactions. We have especially appreciated Luke's quick response to any inquiries we have had about a property. We would highly recommend him to anyone interested inbuying or selling a property.
Luke was on top of the entire process and did a great job. He was willing to put in the extra time and help us through the process. He was able to answer all of our questions in a timely manner so that we could keep the process moving along.
Luke Bouman was very professional and knowledge of the Holland market. He was quick to list our home. He listed it Friday before 5:00pm and we had an offer on Wednesday the following week. We were amazed that is sold so quickly. He gave helpful hints on how to stage our home. His emails were prompt and phone calls were returned. This was a very quick and easy process.
We worked with two other realtors before we found Luke. We trusted him and felt good about our interaction with him from the start. He was incredibly responsive and stayed in close contact throughout the process. He is a good listener and was able to translate our criteria into properties that were real possibilities. We particularly appreciated Luke's low key, easy approach. We never felt pressured or unduly influenced. When we had issues with our lender, Luke was there to run interference. When we had issues with the seller, he stood by us and helped get it resolved. We would not hesitate to recommend him - a true professional.
Luke did a fantastic job with helping us to buy our first home, he kept us informed throughout the entire process!! Very personable also! I will be referring all my friends and family to contact Luke for any housing needs!! Thanks Luke!!
Being a very selective in what we wanted in a house it took us a long time and it took many homes to find the right one for us. Luke figured out very quickly what type of home we were looking for and what was most important to us which sped the process along. Luke was never pushy or over bearing and spent a great deal of time trying to find us the right house. Now that we are looking to sell our home we know just who we will have as our realtor. We have full confidence that Luke will not only sell our house in a reasonable amount of time but will also be able to help us get the price that we want. We would highly recommend Luke in any kind of reality situation.
If being first time home buyers was not stressful enough, we were relocating from out of state around the holidays! We learned about Luke from the internet and were very impressed how quickly he was to reply to our needs and educate us about the different areas. I am very indecisive when it comes to making large purchases and Luke did an outstanding job helping me through this process. Luke went above and beyond, making our home buying journey an incredible experience. My family highly recommends Luke! Thanks Luke for everything, we could have never done this without you and we LOVE our house and our neighbors!!!!
Luke is AWESOME! He has helped us sell 2 homes and buy 2 homes! He made these preocesses very stress free and always kept our best interests his top priority! He was very flexible with his time in order to work with our timeline(s). We will continue to use him as our realtor and recommend him to others as the opportunity arrises!
Luke was great to work with when I was buying my first home. He helped me narrow down my search, and allowed me to decide on the right house for me. I was happy with the way he helped me negotiate with the sellers to get a good price for the home.
When we made the decision to relocate out of state, what we dreaded the most was selling our home in Michigan. What we quickly found out after signing up with Luke Bouman is that we had nothing to worry about. Luke is a real professional that knows how to get the job done. Not only did he bring us a great offer just two days after the house went on the market, but he also saw to it that all of the details were taken care of promptly so that closing would not be delayed. Being 800 miles away, we had great peace of mind knowing that Luke was taking care of business for us back in Michigan.
Very professional and easy to work with. They are quick to respond and are very personable. They work very hard to sell your home and find the perfect new home for you. They definitely go to bat for you! Highly recommend the Luke Bouman Team!
I worked with Luke when I purchased my home. He was professional, easily accessible, and great to work with. He is very honest and works hard for his clients. I would highly recommend using Luke as your realtor.
Luke was very helpful with the search and purchase of our home. Luke was very responsive to our questions and concerns. His diligence made the process stress free.
My husband and I met Luke via email when we were looking for a home in Holland. Even though it was several months before we could get to Holland to look at homes, Luke sent us details of every house that met our criteria. He devoted countless hours to searching out the right place for us to purchase. Because we were out of town he even did the closing for us. We couldn't be more thrilled with our experience with Luke Bouman and his team. Outstanding service by a true professional.
Our experience with Luke was a very positive one. Luke was very responsive to our requests to walk through the various houses that we were interested in. He was very knowledgeable with respect to the housing market in the area which was extremely helpful in our search for and evaluation of houses. We found Luke to be very trustworthy; so much so that after finding our future home we were able sit back and relax as we left the entire matter in Luke's hands. Luke kept everything moving smoothly and we were very happy with him as our realtor.
My husband and I are first time home buyers, the Luke Bouman Team made the entire process easy. They answered all my questions quickly and we got a great home!
Luke will make sure you know the steps being taken during the home buying process as well as making sure you are comfortable with all decisions being made. Luke and his team make buying/selling houses as effortless as possible for their clients. We appreciated Luke's efficiency while guiding us through the home buying process.
I was a 19yr old male that was looking for a home to by so that I could start on with my own life. I had my heart set on many different locations but with Luke and his knowledge of his personal relations that he made with me his client he knew what I was looking for. He kept asking me if I would want to look at the house I live at now but I did not like the colors at all which made me not like the house or the work I thought I would have to put into it all. However Luke knew thought and knew that this would be a great house and location for a younger guy purchasing his first home by himself for the price and size. Through the years since Luke has kept posted and has helped me look for land that I have had my heart set on for years. He knows I have a time frame set in my mind but will always work hard and look out for the best fit and interest for you as a client. I will gladly say Luke is the hardest working and best Realtor I have ever known.
Luke was a rockstar. Luke was always willing to show us houses (tons of them), and stuck with us through the end. When we moved in there were some items in the home that were gone that were not supposed to be and Luke worked hard to ensure they came back in a very timely manner. Many thanks for all the hours spent getting us a home :)
Phil was absolutely fantastic. Although we were buying a small single family home, Phil made us feel like we were his only clients. We loved the constant communication and the kindness that Donna brought to the team. We would, and have recommended the Bouman team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in West Michigan. Thanks again ! :)
The Luke Bouman Team did a great job listening to our needs and identifying properties that were a great fit. Their proffesionalism and market expertise were top notch. I would recommend that anyone looking to buy or sell a home contact the Luke Bouman Team right away. I guarantee Luke and his team will meet or exceed your expectations!
Being new to an area can present challenges when buying real estate. Luke took his time in explaining the pros and cons of various local neighborhoods. The informatation provided was helpful in our ultimate decision.
Our family appreciated not feeling pressured or rushed into buying a new home. Luke did a great job with answering questions and tailoring his service to our needs. I have no reservations in recomending him to others looking to buy or sell a property in Western Michigan.
The Luke Bouman Team showed a level of professionalism, knowledge and respect that was second to none. Although it was not me, but rather my husband who took care of the contacting, I was always so impressed with Luke's availability; whether it be to show us a new house, get us more information, or answer our many questions. For example, once we found our “perfect home” he was willing to show us the house a second time at 9:00 at night so that we could show our parents and get their thoughts. It seems they are willing to do whatever it takes to help you out. I’ve had friends who Luke has also helped find a home for and they were equally as impressed. The Luke Bouman team is an ethical, solid group of people who genuinely want to help in any way they can. I would highly recommend Luke and his team.
Luke helped us with everything in purchasing our home. He was very dependable, helpful and all together very professional. He is top notch and went over and above every step of the way to make sure the sale went smooth. We never had any doubts or uneasiness at any point. As we were about to leave to go to a showing we saw another house online that we were very excited about & right in our price range. Luke made the necessary calls so we could see the house the same night. It the house that we put an offer on the same night & received a acceptance within hours the same night. He did everything he could do to expedite the process. He has since called to do a follow up with us just to make sure we were still satisfied. We will definitely do any future real estate business with Luke if needed & would highly recommend family and friends to him.
Luke was extremely helpful from the very start. We forewarned Luke that we were going to be selective in houses that we would look at and at times may be difficult to work with. Luke took on the challenge and after several months we found the perfect home.
I would recommend Luke to everyone because of his excellent communication and friendly persona.
Luke takes the time to answer any and all questions. He is willing to take the extra steps to make sure that the home buying experience goes as smoothly as possible. Thanks for l the help Luke!
I had an excellent experience in buying my first home with Luke. He is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. He worked with me every step of the way. Kept me updated through the entire process and worked with my busy schedule to look at homes. I was very impressed and would high recommend him.
We worked with Luke and his team to purchase our first home. They really made us feel valued the entire way through. They are knowledgeable, easy to communicate with and honestly had our best interest in mind. What a pleasure this was!
Prior to selling our home we interviewed 3 realtors and hands down Luke Bouman was the most personable, knowledgable, and professional. We loved working with Luke and highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.
Luke is a wonderful agent to work with. He showed us every house in the area we wanted to purchase and accommodated to our schedules. He has become a good friend and still contacts us 5 years later to ensure we still love our home and offers his support if we need any help. Thank you Luke for going above and beyond what we could have ever imagined!
Luke was very knowledgeable and honest. He always had our best interest in mind and truly helped to navigate through the home buying process with us. He was efficient and timely, both very important things in today's market! I would highly recommend Luke Bouman for any and all realtor needs.
Everything was wonderful. We were constantly receiving updates so we knew where we were in the process. Donna always sent us email reminders on what was next and what we could expect. Phil was always honest with us and put out well being first. Great experience.
As first time buyers, we found everyone on the Luke Bouman Team to be very helpful in teaching us about the process at each stage of the journey. I particularly liked that Luke is very quick to communicate via whatever method is convenient. Much of our communication was taken care of via email or text messages! Additionally, his relationship with other agents in his agency helped us to find a good house as soon as it went on the market. This alone was invaluable. Donna and Phil are also both great to work with, and helped us at various stages. We'll definitely be recommending their services to anyone we can.
Luke was very determined, honest, and caring enough to get the best value and price for the home I was looking to purchase. He found and met the criteria that I wanted in my home and was not willing to settle for less than the best. Luke helped me in any way that I needed it, he was great to work with.
Luke was a joy to work with. I was always kept informed of everything that was happening. My mom's condo was sold in record time at a price we were very happy with. I never felt like I was bothering him when I called him. Great job Luke!
In looking for a realtor for our house we were led to Luke after being impressed with a monthly newsletter that was sent to our home by him for the past year. We were very pleased with the personal attention that he gave us. Every time we called him, whether it was during working hours or on the weekend Luke was always very faithful in calling us back and keeping us informed as to what was going on with our home. He was always willing to meet with us at our convenience, putting us first before his normal work schedule which we really appreciated. We also appreciated his honesty in helping us get a very fair price for our home. When our buyer had trouble with their bank Luke was instrumental in working out all of the details to make things go smoothly for us. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.
Luke was very eager to help us find our house. While looking for our home, we found a house that we knew was special and wanted to see it. Upon contacting the listing agent (from Remax), it was obvious that he wanted nothing to do with us. That's when Luke stepped in. Even though our house was not his listing, he took the initiative, contacted us, and we closed the deal. Thanks Luke!
We began our house shopping long before our house in Illinois sold. Luke Bouman was patient with us and let us continually look at houses on his website and occasionally we would look at one in person. When we were finally able to look at some homes knowing we could purchase soon he under stood our needs and preferences and found some really nice places to show us. Luke found a lender that would help us, too. Through the whole process my wife and I felt like we were doing business with a friend.
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Luke. He went out of his way to show us many houses in our area and he quickly gained an understanding of what we were looking for in a home. I would highly recommend Luke for your real estate needs as he possesses all the qualities you look for in a realtor. Not only is he knowledgeable and professional but he's very trustworthy! He's the type of person who always places your best interest as the number one priority!
Luke Bouman is an excellent realtor with the knowledge, experience, and understanding to help make your home buying experience pain free and enjoyable!
We were in an interesting position looking for a home in 2010 and are so thankful to have found Luke. He used his network of connections to put us in touch with the professionals who could help us responsibly fund our home. Then, he explained the home buying process to us as first time buyers in terms that we understood. We never felt confused or lost in the process and any question we ever had was answered clearly and quickly!
Luke worked hard with our list of needs and actually found a house he SWORE we'd love - even when we weren't so sure at first. We followed his lead and by the time we had walked halfway through, we knew we had our home. Luke knew our needs better than we did!
Luke was a valuable asset in negotiating our home and helped work a deal that was very favorable for all of us. He was honest and frank when preparing our offer, looking out for our costs whild understanding the delicate nature of making an offer on someone's home. He was an excellent facilitator between us and the sellers - striking us a deal that we were all pleased with.
More than three years later, we are still happy with our home. Our family has grown and the house is perfect for us still! We would definitely recommend using Luke for your home buying or selling needs. If we're ever in the market for a new home again - Luke Bouman will be the first call we make!
Luke, Phil, and Donna went above and beyond in ensuring that our first home purchase was smooth and hassle-free. Their knowledge and expertise as clearly evident in their interactions with us. We were able to trust that they had our best interests in mind in each step of the process.
Phil Bouman was an excellent guide through the process of buying our home--proactive, responsive, dedicated, fair, and reassuring when things out of our control (and his) made the process difficult. We never would have gotten the home we love without him! His office team also made everything quick and easy.
I have both purchased and sold a home with the Luke Bouman Team, and I would never use anyone else after my experience. When purchasing, Luke listened to exactly what we wanted and brought us through homes that we loved. We actually had a two different homes that we could not choose between because Luke found exactly what we wanted. The best part of the process what being able to go at your own pace. They guided us through the process and did not push us into a deal we were not ready for. On the selling side, Luke offered his best recommended ways of selling the home, but more importantly delivered. Luke has some great ways of attracting interest in our home, but was also willing to listen when we did not want to use open houses as a method of sale. Luke also provided insight of each potential buyer so we would know how serious they were and what they were looking for. Overall, the team answered every question we had and stood by our side the entire time. We had a long closing process based on the financing provided, but the team did not give up and helped us through the process the entire way. There is no other team I would recommend or use myself that the Luke Bouman Team!
Luke and his team seemed to be very attentive to all our needs and questions. He responded right away to all my emails and text messages and was always willing to look into or ask about whatever I wanted information on. He let us know when he was going to be gone on vacation and let us know that his team would take care of us if anything should come about. The transaction seemed to go very smoothly with Luke's help.
My wife and I bought a home from Luke in 2011 and he helped make the process flow extremely smoothly! We looked through several homes until we finally decided to make an offer and Luke got us the price we were looking for. He is an exceptional realtor and would highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a new home!
Luke was such a great realtor to work with! Being first time home buyers, we had so many questions and he was always there for us. He showed us so many houses and when we finally found one we loved, he made the process go smoothly.
Luke was incredible. He was very knowledgeable, and very friendly during the entire process. We were really asking a lot. We were looking for a lot of nice house, for not a lot of money. In a good school district. And we got it. It took time, but no matter how many houses we looked at, he was always ready to try again. Sometimes, every other day. And I know it wasn't all about money, because there were times we were pretty much sold on a house and he'd tell us why he didn't think it was a good idea. I honestly believe hiring Luke / the Luke Bouman team could save you a lot of wasted time and money. It's been a year since we bought the house, and he still checks up on us. He really does go above and beyond his job.
We haven't bought a house in 18 years. Luke was very helpful in walking us through the entire process. He was also very patient with our many questions. Something else that's very important to us is his responsiveness. He was very prompt in returning emails and phone calls. Luke also saved us a lot of money. We were ready to pay almost any price to get into the home we wanted. Luke slowed us down and negotiated a better deal than I thought possible.
