    Bought and sold a home in 2017 in Damsel, Osage Beach, MO 65065.
    Danae Cooper was our Krantz Realtor. We can not say enough GREAT things about Danae.
    We bought a condo through her, listed our condo through her and it was sold within a week.
    She was professional, accommodating, and ALWAYS made herself available. A.M., P.M., and Hoildays.
    We highly recommend Danae at Krantz.

    Sold a home in 2017 in Damsel, Osage Beach, MO 65065.
    After having our house listed with another realtor for over a year and a half, I placed a call to Jeff Krantz and was introduced to one of their agents, Derick Cooper. Derick did a great job of assisting me to improve my listing and our showing increased dramatically. We successfully sold our house and appreciate Derick's hard work and the Jeff Krantz team. I would recommend them on your next purchase/sell of a home.

    Bought a home in 2017 in Rocky Mount, MO 65072.
    Danae helped my husband and me find a lake house, and she was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable, patiently answered all our questions and quickly handled all our needs once we entered a contract. Due to her expertise, we found the right property within just a few hours of looking and had it under contract quickly thereafter. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy property in the Lake of the Ozarks area. Danae will take great care of you!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Sunrise Beach, MO.
    Danae helped us with our move back to MO. We were very hit and miss with our available tunes to view properties and Danae always managed to work with out hectic long distance schedule. She is very knowledgeable about the area and always gives an honest opinion when asked. She is super friendly and was always pleasant to deal with. She always returned our emails or phone calls promptly. It was a pleasant buying experience.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Sunrise Beach, MO.
    Susan was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout our entire house hunting and buying process. When we gave her the parameters for what we were looking for in a house, she showed us several options. She knows the lake and shared her knowledge to make us comfortable. We found her to be honest and she assisted with many of our questions because we have been coming to the lake for 20+ years but this was our first home purchase at LOTO. I would definitely recommend her to friends.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Rocky Mount, MO.
    I can't say enough wonderful things about our awesome experience with Danae Cooper!! She is a true professional with a vast knowledge of all things "Lake Ozark". We never had to wait for answers to our many questions. If she couldn't answer them on the spot, we usually had a text or email before we reached our home back in St. Louis. She listened to our wants and needs and showed us only homes that met our criteria which saved us a lot of time. She also previewed every home before we made the trip to the lake because let's face it, pictures only tell part of the story! We never felt any pressure to make a purchase. We did feel that Danae provided us with all the necessary details and information about the houses we were interested in so that we could make an informed decision. The whole process was painless and enjoyable thanks to her! We absolutely LOVE our new lake home and had so much fun with Danae. She still checks in with us and we highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling at the Lake!!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Eldon, MO.
    We were able to purchase our 1st home thanks to Danae. I am a VERY difficult person to please. I am also very inpatient and demanding. I want results immediately. She was the gal for the job! She met us on a Sunday. I was very inpatient through the process, but she was so very patient and always reassuring to me. She worked within the limits we had set forth and actually exceeded our expectations! I was given an estimated closing date and once I had that I wasn't going to budge for anything different and of course she pulled through! She is genuine and wonderful. I would recommend her hands down. I would never want to use anyone else.

    Bought a Condo home in 2016 in Osage Beach, MO.
    Ok , First let me say that I am very difficult to deal with (Wife made me put that in there) We contacted Susan Ebling about a condo that she had listed, From our first call until completion of the purchase Susan was on point!! We scheduled a visit to the Lake (we are from Mississippi) to view some listings. Its one thing to set an appointment and show some properties but she went above and beyond for our service including places to stay, Restaurants to dine at etc. Her knowledge of the lake is unmatched! we viewed several (12) properties from one area to the next, We did not get a purchase made on our initial visit but with Susan's help and her ability to find us the perfect condo we made a purchase just before the new year!! we were completely satisfied with all facets of her service!!!

    Do yourself a favor and call her to view her listings or any others in the area!!
    Thanks Susan!!!!

    I would highly recommend Danae to help with your home search. She went above and beyond to help us in our search for the perfect lake house. The great thing is she still checks in with us eight months after the sale. You can't do better than Danae!

    She also sold our condo in a record five days for very close to our asking price!

    Dave & Julie - Thank you so much for your kind words!! It was MY pleasure helping you sell your condo and find the perfect Lake Home! Also, I greatly appreciate your recent referral. I hope you make many great memories here at the Lake! ~Danae
