We would love to hear about your experiences with Gateway Realty of North Platte. Please share your thoughts with us and other potential clients by submitting your testimonial.
Jodi is an excellent realtor and went above and beyond during our home buying experience. She was readily available to accommodate our schedules, professional and communicated frequently every step of the way! She was willing to get us into our new home for a few hours before closing to take measurements and be a sounding board for new ideas. Our closing was hectic and crazy but she accommodated everything necessary to help us button things up as quickly as possible. She is also so thoughtful!!! 10/10 would recommend Jodi!!!

Want to say Thank you to Sheri for helping us to sell the house. Sheri was very pleasant and very personable. She was available for us any time and did a very good job in providing an advice and help in guiding us to accomplish our sale.

I met Jim Shores about four years ago when I contacted Gateway Realty about a house they listed for sale. I wasn't sure about what I wanted or where I wanted it. Over the next three and one-half years, Jim was always ready to help me with information and showings, usually within 24 hours. He is a very patient person. He took good care of me even after I backed out of a contract. We finally found the right place and I love it! Jim is a great realtor and I am honored to call him my friend.

Jodi was awesome! She helped me through the home buying process and made it so easy. Jodi puts so much effort into her clients and takes a lot of pride in what she does. A truly amazing woman.
- Anna Griffiths
Jodi was an absolute pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond to get us into our dream home. She was always available to help with any questions or concerns we had along the way. I wouldn’t want to work with anyone else. Thank you so much!!

I wanted to write this letter to let you know how satisfied I am with your services. I have been involved with your company for over twenty years and have had your assistance in conducting the police auctions. You also conducted the estate auction after my husband passed away. I have always been satisfied with all of the people that have helped me, from the auctioneers to all of the people that made sure things were done correctly and that everything went smoothly.
When I decided to move to North Platte, I had Jim Shores as my Realtor. He was a pleasure to work with and answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. I found the house I was looking for and the whole buying process was a pleasure even through some of the bumps along the way. I also had Jim help me with the sale of my home in Brady. Jim always kept in touch with me and made sure I was able to sell my home quickly and easily.
I would recommend your company to anyone looking for auction and realty services. Everyone is so professional, polite, helpful, and have a great sense of humor. I have truly enjoyed working with you. Thank you. It is always a pleasure.

In 2016, I bought my first house thinking, I'm never going to move out, & I'm gonna live in it forever & passed it down to my kids (wishful thinking lol)! I had a lot of plans & goals for this house but God had another plan for me & my family, which is okay, because he opened up another opportunity for me & my kids.
Although it was such an amazing accomplishment to buy my first home but it's even a bigger an accomplishment to sell it! It was a lot of work & a lot of tears but with the grace of God & my amazing realtor Katie Rupp, we did it! I'm at peace!
I wish the next owner that owns this house, that they have amazing goals, memories with it, & that they're happy with their new home!
Closing this chapter, working on the next.

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.
- Marlene Munoz and Esther Rutan's family
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!!
- Jesse D.
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
I was really happy with everything Sheri did for us in selling our home. She let us make all the decisions but gave us professional suggestions. She was right on target about the price.
- John (on Garfield Table Road)
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.

We would like to take a few moments to express to Gateway Realty the stellar service given us by Jodi Schall-Hinds. We were faced with a very restricted time line to sell our home prior to moving to Omaha. Jodi was able to accomplish selling our home just in time! We truly appreciate her time and dedication in providing a wonderful service to both the Seller and the Buyer. Jodi is a great asset to the Gateway team. We are very pleased with the service received and will recommend Jodi as an honest, hard working realtor. Please stay safe and healthy.
- Anthony and Donna Berry
I recently purchased a home with the help of Jodi Hinds. Jodi had worked with me patiently on and off for a couple of years showing me houses. She was incredibly patient, and helpful while I was narrowing down all the desired details. She never lost faith that we would find the "one". She called me one morning and told me that I "MUST" see a newly listed home ASAP. And she was correct: it was the house that checked all the boxes. And I love it! Jodi is kind, diligent, motivated, honest and straight forward, and she made the home buying process as painless as possible. Thank You Jodi!
- Wendy Becker
David was excellent to work with starting at the first phone conversation. He promptly met me at a listing I wanted to see. He researched the property and was very knowledgeable. He explained everything about working together and what he was going to do as the realtor. He was not pushy and did not try to rush me into purchasing just any house. He took his time and we looked at several properties. David was patient, knowledgeable, and hardworking. Once we did finally find the right house, David worked with me and explained each step. Witch was great considering this was my first house. David was prompt and more than willing to answer all the questions I had. I know I would use David again and would recommend him to anyone.
- Patrick Morseman
I just want to thank [Jodi] for being my real estate agent for a second time. You are such a pleasure to work with and you have successfully found good homes for the homes I was selling. If I ever move back to the area, I will be looking you up. Thank you very much!
- Lois Nansel
I want to say thanks to this lady right here! I could call her or text her at all hours of the day or night and she always got right back to me. She also met me at the same house 3 times just to make sure I was making the right choice! She is a very sweet lady! We now have a beautiful home we purchased through Jodi at the lake and couldn’t be happier! Again, thank you Jodi!
Hey Jim, just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the help you gave me when I purchased the property you represented. Your knowledge and professionalism walking me through the deal was outstanding. Thank you and Gateway Realty for everything.
- Thanks, T Rip
Oh goodness where do we even begin?! Let's first start by saying we appreciate you so very much Cyndi! We definitely wouldnt have been able to do any of this process without you! So thank you for putting up with us! From the struggles with the loan to repairs to closing money to our freak out text messages and even going above and beyond with helping us try to sell our old house! There are not enough words to describe the appreciation Nate and I have for what you did for us! Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
- Love the Moog Family
Cyndi went BEYOND to help with the selling of our estate house. She did so much extra to make this as easy and stress free an experience as possible.

Her positive attitude, beautiful smile and emotional support where a welcoming reassurance throughout the whole process!!! I may have sold a house but I also made a great friend!!! Thank you so much for everything!!!!

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!

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!

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
I have had the pleasure of working with Sheri Bourne over the years and have thoroughly enjoyed my experiences with her! Sheri has been my agent in each of my personal real estate transactions and has delivered at a high level each time. Her professionalism and expertise is second to none! Her years of experience serving the North Platte area has been a tremendous resource and I trust her completely with all of my real estate needs. Highly recommended!
- Chandler Broman, Ashley Homestore Manager

Her partner in crime (lol), Kevin, is great too; knowledgeable and very, very helpful!! Ya can’t ask for better!!!
- 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!
