Thank you so much for all your help with selling our house. I appreciated all your advice about how to prepare the house for market and all your hard work and guidance along the way. We were very pleased with the results. Jan

Sylvia did such a great job selling our home, she was always there to make sure the house would show well and if problems came up she always took care of them. I don't think we could have found anyone better to sell our house We would recommend her to anyone who wants a cool lady, competent and always helpful. Ken & Janell Walsh

It's scary getting an agent to help buy a home, because the financial interest of the buyer's agent is not aligned with the financial interest of the buyer. The agent makes the most money (at least in the short term) by persuading people to buy whatever is available at whatever price is asked. In a context that invites abuse, Sylvia Bartel was a godsend. She asked all the right questions and advocated for our interests instead of her own. I felt secure in her advice and empowered by her shrewd judgement. Moreover, Sylvia knew everything that needed to be done and stayed on top of communication with us and all the other parties. Competence combined with trustworthiness: it doesn't get any better than that!

Sylvia helped my mom sell her home, she gave suggestions on how to prepare for the house to get listed, what the highest priority items were and who to talk to. Once it was listed it was only on the market for a few days! Sylvia was Great! I highly recommend her. I know next time I need help buying or selling a home she'll be the first person I call.

I've been meaning to write to thank you for more than a year now. If you recall, in the summer of 2015 we moved into a wonderful house in Hesston. At the time I'm afraid I was pretty grumpy about it. The lenders messed up some paperwork and we were delayed in moving in after crossing the country with a 3-year-old and 2-month-old. Also, I'm slow to settle into new situations, and so was probably overly critical of the house. However, the point of this email is that I quickly came to love our house. I love our house! Thank you so much for alerting us when the price dropped and for helping us to get all our ducks in a row from afar.

Sylvia Bartel displayed a professionalism and knowledge of real estate that helped us from beginning to end in the selling of our home. She gave us suggestions about what to do in getting the home ready to sell that were just right. But what we appreciated most was her kindness and genuine care for us. We are very thankful we found her!

We highly recommend Sylvia Bartel with JP Weigand. She helped us with both the sale of our previous home and purchase of our new home. She was amazing to work with! Sylvia explained the real estate transaction process every step of the way. She helped us think through each step so that we could make the best decision for us and looked after our interest throughout.

We were especially impressed with Sylvia's prompt responses to all of our inquiries. When we were ready to make an offer on a house, she made the process go very smoothly and we were confident she was looking out for our best interests.

As first time homebuyers Sylvia did an amazing job of assisting us. All questions were answered promptly and she usually had some extra tips and tricks to add to the answer that we would never have considered. During the closing process she took a lot of the weight off of our shoulders and made sure everything went smoothly and after our purchase she has been here to follow up and make sure everything was perfect too. She was very professional but also very personable and made the whole process easy. Thank you Sylvia!

Sylvia was great at getting new listings to us, scheduled us to visit houses we were interested in, and was a good advocate working on our behalf with the sellers and seller's agents. Her years of experience and knowledge of the market was evident in her responses to our many questions as first time home buyers. She offered good advise and provided recommendations on local businesses when it came to scheduling housing inspections, transferring utilities, and making changes to our dream home. I would strongly recommend Sylvia for anyone looking to purchase a home.

We had a great experience with Sylvia. As our agent she did a great job of evaluating our house and suggesting improvements. Sylvia helped us set realistic expectations, price our home appropriately and stay positive during the process. We recommend her without reservation and would hire her again.

Sylvia was very patient as our family revised wants and needs and she showed us various homes that fit what we asked at the moment. Eventually that place we wanted came back on the market and she checked into it immediately and made it available to us. We appreciate her professional demeanor throughout and the efficient handling of paperwork.

I appreciated Sylvia's work ethic for me and also for the buyer. She knew what area homes similar to ours were selling for and based on that we decided together on the price. She kept in contact with us about showings and people interested in the house. I would recommend her to anyone wanting their property sold.

Sylvia Bartel made selling our house a pleasant experience. Being up to date on the market trends, she suggested price modifications but never pushed our price point where we didn't feel comfortable. She is prompt and very reliable as well as being friendly. We highly recommend using Sylvia Bartel as your agent.

I am pleased to offer this evaluation of Sylvia Bartel. During our recent purchase of a new home, she performed the duties one would expect from a realtor in a professional and competent manner. However, what made our experience noteworthy was due to our being located several hundred miles away from the Newton area, combined with a significant number of items that needed to be repaired. Sylvia acted in our behalf in contacting potential painters, carpenters, plumbers and handymen to submit bids. She then shared those bids with us - along with her evaluations. After we discussed and made a decision she contacted the tradesmen and followed up to see that the work was done properly. All this was done in a timely manner and the results were as good as if we had been there. Our experience with Sylvia was most satisfying during what was potentially a stressful and difficult period. I strongly recommend her to future real estate customers and would certainly contact her if we sell or buy in the future.

I especially appreciated Sylvia's ability to listen to our wishes and preferences as sellers, even while she offered professional counsel and perspective that ultimately proved important to a successful outcome. For instance, early on she urged us to pay for a full house inspection and to make that report available to prospective buyers--a step we would not have taken independently, but a smart move considering we were selling an older home, and that was a good way to reassure buyers up front about the condition of the home. At other points in the process when we showed some impatience, she was a steadying influence. A "no drama" influence. Throughout the process she inspired confidence through her professionalism and her focus on the end goal. I'm sure that what felt like such a "good fit" between Sylvia's style and our own needs was due in large part to her adapting to make that relationship function so well. For me, that's an additional sign of her expertise, demonstrating her knowledge of people and insight into how to work with them.

Sylvia Bartel helped me locate a nice 2 bedroom bungalow in Wichita in the Fall of 2011. Sylvia kept me updated with listings meeting my criteria, went to viewings with me, arranged and attended the home inspection, and relayed my bids to the seller's rep. Once the sale was closed she recommended an electrician and plumber to help me complete some clean-up of the property. Sylvia is knowledgeable about the greater Wichita area, quick to follow-up and completely familiar with the home buying process - very professional.
