Finding Your Next Lake Home
Homeowners need someone who knows the Lake of the Ozarks inside and out. Judy and Colleen work with their clients to find the right homes at the right prices, including all of the neighborhood amenities that matter, not to mention—essential criteria homeowners have for their ideal home.
Selling a Lake Home
When it’s time to move, homeowners need someone who knows the market, will advertise the home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee inspections, handle all the necessary paperwork, and supervise the closing. Judy and Colleen can take care of everything throughout the entire process, and will never leave their clients to fend for themselves during negotiations.
Consulting on Lake Home Selling Tactics Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in a home the way the current owner does. Judy and Colleen can make any home attractive to its ideal audience, which helps their sellers receive top dollar for their homes. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or simply painting the walls, can be the difference between a home that rests on the market and one that’s sold fast.

We had just started our search when we first met Judy. On our way home, my husband Dean said to me that he thought Judy had to be the best Realtor at the Lake because of her knowledge of the area, being an active member of the community, and the valuable information she shared with us. We both felt extremely fortunate to have chosen her. Mr. & Mrs. Dean Weeks
Colleen was a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond our expectations with our condo sale and our lake home purchase. I will gladly
recommend Gattermeir Davidson and Colleen to anyone who may be looking to sell or purchase. Mr. & Mrs. Steve Lohmann
Judy and Coleen were available anytime, day or night, to answer a call or e-mail. They followed up every conversation or question we had. They were there to guide us through this complicated process, as we had not purchased a home for 21 years. The two of them always made us feel we were the only customers they had to deal with at the time. Judy and Colleen treated us like old friends and were very accommodating, helpful, and knowledgeable. I could not imagine using any other company for buying or selling a property at the lake!
