My family and I were very impressed with Jim Shores when we met with him to put my mom's house on the market. Jim went through the house and took measurements and notes, and he answered our questions. He was very professional and upfront with us. He understood taht mom had no money for repairs and inspections, etc., and understood that we wanted the house sold "as is".

He went over a comparable with us. He met with us on our time, knowing that I was from out of state, and he brought everything to us at the location instead of having to make extra arrangements for rides to his office (I didn't have a car and my daughter worked). When I was not in town, he met with my daughter where ever she might be, to deliver papers that I might need to help expediate our requests.

The house was listed for $65,000 and sold for $60,000, which we were very happy with because of the condition of the house. Mom was on Medicaid and they needed to know why the house did not sell for assessed value. Jim wrote a letter for me to send to Medicaid explaining why we got what we did and gave his number if they had any questions.

In our opinion, Jim went well above and beyond in his duties during the listing and sale of our mom's home.

My family and I would recommend Jim to anyone needing a realtor.

When we decided to list our home for sale, Jim was on top of things from day one. He sat with me and explained very clearly how the listing and sale, straight through closing, would work. He was very helpful in getting the few things completed that needed done, and even jumped in and completed a lot of the work himself.
We give Jim full credit that we received a full price offer on the first day of showing.
We had a few unexpected things come up and Jim was very quick and efficient in keeping us informed, so the closing would go smoothly and on the date planned.
We would recommend Jim Shores to anyone as one of the best real estate agents in North Platte. He is a person who will go above and beyond to help his clients, but also his friends. You are very fortunate to have Jim Shores as one of your agents.

We had the benefit of working with Sheri Bourne in finding our home. She is a very pleasant lady and easy to bounce ideas off of. She has a good eye for detail and is a PERFECTIONIST. She made sure our home was perfect when we moved in. The previous owners left some bad carpet that needed stretched and cleaning as well as several walls that were patched but not painted. She went and had the carpets cleaned and stretched and the walls touched up without us knowing! She didn't make a big deal about it, she just did it. She did HUGE amounts for us, behind the scenes, that we are just now realizing. She wanted everything to be perfect for my wife and took the initiative to do so. On top of that, she had a landscaper come and mow our lawn!! She is a wonderful lady and great realtor............and my kids loved her (their grandmothers live 2 states away). Thank You, Sheri!!

We LOVE Jodi, she is the absolute best. The most helpful. And truly, we were kind of a pain with our schedules and whatnot. She is completely accommodating and always had a smile on her face. She is also super helpful, where we are first time home buyers. She did everything she could for us. Whenever and whatever we asked of her really. 10/10 and have already recommended.
- Emily Birge

Jodi is a wonderful woman to work with. She cares about you as a buyer and understands what you want to buy. There is no pressure and a lot of support to find the perfect house for you! Awesome lady!

- Tyler R Cronin

Wow what a great way to have an auction. You [Diana] did a great job and took all work out of the auction. I am sure more people will do on line actions. I will tell everyone I know how easy it was. Thank you for the great job you did.

Buying a home is extremely stressful! Especially your first home! There are a lot of questions and unknowns. My husband and I have been looking for our first home to raise our three young children in for two and a half years. The number of houses we looked at was countless. We were frustrated and feeling defeated. Until we started working with Linda. She listened to what we were looking for, took note of the things we needed, and was respectful of our budget and didn’t pressure us into looking at things above our price range. She was patient with our young children and lovingly allowed them to be a part of the process. She showed us a few homes and helped us process through what we were looking at. She reminded us that pictures posted don’t always show good representation of what a home has to offer. Linda helped us look at the things we probably wouldn’t have otherwise, being it was our first time buying a home and we didn’t know we should be looking at those things so that we didn’t get ourselves in over our head with a home. Thanks to Linda, we found a home that met all of our wish list items and stayed within our budget, so we could start our home ownership process on the right foot.

She did a fantastic job of explaining the process we would be going through in terms that we could easily understand, and was willing to come in to the office to meet with us when it worked with our busy schedules. Linda showed us she has great experience not only as a realtor but as a home owner as well. She shared tips with us and gave us suggestions to help us along the way as we began the journey into home ownership. She took away the stressors that come with buying a house and helped make buying a home easy and exciting!

Our favorite thing about Linda is that once we signed closing papers, she wasn’t done with us. She has continued to check in with us to make sure we still love our home and help us with any problems that may have arrived. The first week we were in our home, we were having trouble with the refrigerator that came with our home. Linda was there to help us navigate through our panic on what to do and helped us resolve the problem, even though it was a weekend that she was at home with her husband.

Linda is devoted to her clients and committed to finding them the home they are looking for and we thank her from the bottoms of our hearts for helping us find a home we love and are making our own!

A amazing real estate agent. She helped us so much from start to finish. I recommend [Jodi] to anyone.

OMG! Jodi was such an awesome realtor and friend during my home buying process. Moving from a bigger city to a brand new town in which I didn't know anyone and didn't know where to even consider looking for a home. She guided me through the whole process and was so so very helpful and went out of her way to answer all of my constant questions and concerns about properties. If you are looking for someone who will go above and beyond for you during your home buying process, please do not hesitate to contact Jodi!

Donna & I want to Thank You for assisting us in the sale of our cabin at Jeffrey Lake.

Living almost 200 miles, one way from the cabin, would have made it very difficult for us to attempt to sell the cabin with out your professional assistance.

We appreciated your scheduling the open houses and sincerely appreciate your follow up on those visitors to our cabin. Your response time as to actual visitors who showed a sincere interest in the cabin was outstanding.

I personally appreciated your keeping me informed through Faxes and E Mail.

I attempted to follow up on the electronic correspondence within 24 hours and you were as prompt in replying back to Donna & I. We were "impressed".

Donna & I would highly recommend you to anyone seeking to sell or looking to purchase, to contact you for your professional assistance!

If Donna & I would decide after retiring to look at Jeffrey Lake as a "get away" from our home, you will be the first person we will contact!

"Thanks Jim"

On February 26th, 2019, my husband, John, and I had decided to list our house at 1114 William Ave for sale "by owner". After two months and only two showings we were beginning to be in a time crunch as we were hoping to be moved by the beginning of summer. We had seen around town quite a few houses by Sheri that had been sold and knew that she could get the job done, so we gave her a call. After only two days on the market through Sheri at Gateway Realty, we had an offer put in, and two days after that a SOLD sign in our yard! We are very pleased with the professionalism that she shows and the quickness of the sale and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell, or buy a home!
- Larissa and John Walter

I contacted Jim Shores, Auctioneer for Gateway Realty Auction, to set-up an Online Moving Auction. I cannot find enough words of thanks to Jim, Diana Newtson and staff. Every step of the process was handled with professionalism and respect for my items. I am very pleased and satisfied with the final outcome, exceeded my expectations!

- Linda Salmon

- Marla Stephens

[Jodi] gets stuff done really fast. She was really helpful with asking questions and could answer to the best of her knowledge. It was a new experience for her dealing with a trust account, but she did a fantastic job.

Jodi is a true rockstar at her job with a genuine passion for helping people find the home of their dreams! She has helped us find 2 homes now with zero hassle. Jodi makes buying a house easier than buying a gallon of milk from Walmart.

- Eric Moeller

Jodi made our first time home buying experience one that was stress free! She was very straightforward on what we could expect and was warm and friendly through the whole process and kept us updated as things happened! Highly recommend! Thank you, Jodi for helping us buy our first home!!
- Kandace Carpenter

Jodi is willing to go above and beyond to help her clients with both the buying and selling process. She was great to work with and has the heart to make this the best experience for her clients.

As you may know, buying a home can be a very stressful event in a person's life. I recently bought a property to call home and had Jodi as my real estate agent. Jodi kept me at ease during the process of finding and purchasing my home. She was always prompt in communicating with me in answering my questions. I am satisfied with Jodi and will call her again when purchasing another property.

Jodi is an amazing realtor and will do whatever it takes to get you what you want. She's with you every step of the way. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone. Very nice and professional. Jodi was there day and night. We was first time home buyers and had no clue where to start.

The reason I give Jodi all five stars is because she really was an amazing realtor. I gave her my price range that I could afford and locations that I was open up to for living. When I went to go meet with her in her office for the first time, she had already printed out a couple dozen homes. We went through them very smoothly. If I said no on a home, she doesn't pressure you into it. The only thing she asks [is] what do you not like about it, so that she doesn't pull another one like it. Jodi will help you set up appointments with banks! (Thank goodness, because I didn't know the first thing about purchasing a home.) If you are like me and didn't know anything, she will help you every step of the way! I do recommend Jodi! I already have recommended her to my close friends and also do enjoy her! Thanks again, Jodi!
