I am a dedicated real estate professional in the Wichita area focused on providing exceptional customer service to clients and their families. My husband and I downsized this past year to a totally different neighborhood and I have moved over 20 times personally, including several states so I definitely understand the process, frustrations and fears. My background as a business owner, administrative assistant/secretary and over 9 years experience as a realtor helps me to help you. I will listen to you and act as your advocate. Many of my clients are now friends, and they have referred both their family and friends to me because they know I'll take very good care of them from the beginning of our relationship, to after closing, and beyond that! I don't go away. I work with a broad spectrum of clients from 1st time homebuyers as a buyers agent (ABR) to a listing agent assisting senior citizens who need my expertise in helping them adjust to the new issues they might be facing. Being a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) I am available and eager to help in any way. This compassion stems from my experience of being a caregiver for my mom with Alzheimers and my dad with heart disease. I realize the difficulties families face in obtaining services to help their loved ones as their diseases progresses. Caregivers also need special services to make their role as a caregiver easier. Many of my clients: * have lived in their homes for more than 30 years!!! * are homeowners looking to downsize or make a change in their lifestyle. * are children concerned about the safety and welfare of their parent/parents. * are referred by hospital social workers assisting their clients through difficult physical and emotional changes. * are referred by attorneys handling estate homes or clients who have lost a spouse. * are referred by home health care providers assisting their clients in relocating. * are referred by Geriatric Social Workers and Geriatric Care Managers
I will advise and assist you in the following areas: * Arranging for an estate sale and moving professionals *Coordinating any necessary repairs *Staging the home for sale *Establishing sales price *Marketing the property (including flyers and internet) *Negotiating contract *Coordinating the Closing
So my goal is to manage this transaction with professional and legal integrity, while providing honest loving assistance to my clients and their families. I promise to treat your family as though it is my own.

"I met Linda Lockaby Bernat when I was moving from California to Wichita, KS nine years ago. Linda was very professional, warm and friendly. Now nine years later Linda is going to sell the house I bought through her. You could not find a more friendly, professional person to sell your house or help you find one. Thank you

"I was privileged to meet Linda Bernat quite a few years ago when we begin searching for a home and shop.
It turned into a ten-year search because we had some pretty specific criteria as well as location needs. But in that 10 years formed a friendship that I cherish. And we did lots of looking. Always friendly and Professional and very efficient and knows the real estate business very well. And 2 1/2 years ago we finally found that home and shop and Linda helped us get into it & got our home that we were in for 25 years sold!!!!Couldn’t imagine going through this process with anyone else. Thank you Linda for everything."

"Patience is a key attribute in home sales and Linda Lockaby Bernat has the patience of a saint. When she worked with me over 9 years ago to find the perfect first house, we toured house after house. She looked for everything I wanted and found several options. We spent weeks looking and found the perfect house!! Linda is a great friend and a great person to work with."

- Susan M., Wichita, KS

"Wow! Linda is AWESOME! In all, she assisted with the sale of 4 homes including on an airport property which had a very limited market. She had great marketing ideas to promote quick sales. On the flip side, Linda also helped us when we were the "buyer" looking for a home. She was wonderful to work with, always quick to answer questions and find out all the needed info. Our last move was to Missouri...otherwise I know she would still be our real estate agent! GREAT to work with as a buyer or seller!"

- Julie, St. Charles, MO

"I meet Linda in April 2006 when she helped my parents buy their house. 3 years later, she helped my husband and I find our dream home. She is a wonderful and very helpful woman. I’m so glad that our business relationship as turned in to a long term friendship. You will leave happy after doing business with Linda! ."
