Melissa KrantzBroker/Owner

Hello, my name is Melissa Krantz and my husband and I started our Real EstateTeam, Krantz & Associates in 1998 with RE/MAX. Since 1998 we have been involved in over 1,500 transactions and are now also one of Broker/Owner partners here at RE/MAX Lake of the Ozarks. It would be an honor to put my experience and expertise to work for you in assisting you with your Real Estate needs here at the Lake. Whether you are buying or selling at the Lake, it can be a complex process with the different rules and regulations. Our area is very unique compared to other areas of the country. We are located in the Heart of Missouri on one of the largest man made lakes in the country. I have been affiliated with the Lake since the 70's and have been here full time since 1994. My husband, Jeff Krantz, and I have a grown daughter, Kassy and a son-n-law Tyler that live in Peoria, IL and two sons, Jacob and Zachary. We are deeply rooted in our community serving on several Charity Boards and local community committees. I am extremely enthusiastic and promise I will make your Real Estate transaction as smooth as possible. I love the Lake!

    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 Single Family home in 2017 in Osage Beach, MO.
    We are relocating from Ohio and Susan Ebling did a fantastic job helping us find the perfect home. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She got to know us personally and found out our wants and needs for a lake home and found the perfect home. We could not have done it without her! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home! Thanks Susan!

    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!!!!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Sunrise Beach, MO.
    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!

    Susan Ebling was a great, professional and personal realtor for us. We were very satisfied with our results and would recommend her and her team for anyone looking to sell or buy property around the lake area. ??

    It was a pleasure to be able to help you get your home sold, Les and Barb. It wasn't an easy process, but you certainly did your part to overcome the obstacles and we got to closing! I cannot wait to see the new home that you build on the hill!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Lebanon, MO.
    I began the house hunting process by interviewing several local realtors. After speaking with Susan Ebling, I knew she was the perfect fit to assist us. Her level of professionalism came across during the interview and made me feel comfortable and confident in her skill set to walk us through looking at potential homes and selecting the right home for us. Ms. Ebling patiently showed us many homes in four different lake area communities. When we selected a home we were interested in she made the offer/contract process fast and simple. At every step in the process she explained what to expect/norms/next steps. Knowing what was ahead eased our anxiety through the process. Susan graciously answered the many questions we had and quickly communicated with the selling retailer to obtain details from the seller. We were more than impressed with Ms. Ebling's response turnaround time on all questions. As soon as we a signed contract we received a checklist of important dates and information regarding items to be completed during the time between contract and closing. It included due dates and resources. We were additionally very pleased with the home inspector we choose from a list of her recommendations. Our home inspection was actually fun and we learned a great deal! There were a couple of items we needed repair bids on as a result of the home inspection. She took care of gathering those and they were done very quickly! This was extremely helpful as we were relocating from another community and not familiar with local resources. At every point in the process Ms. Ebling was a true professional and expert in her field. We love our new home and hope that moving is not anywhere in the near future, but when that time comes, we will be contacting Ms. Ebling once again.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Kaiser, MO.
    Would like to thank Megan King for her help with selling my mother's house. I live in the Chicago area, and never once had to take a road trip. Megan handled everything for me, even though we ran in to a few roadblocks. She was always there to help with whatever questions I had. Will definitely give her name to anyone I know will be buying or selling in the area.
    Response from Melissa on 11/4/2016
    Lucy, Thank you SO much for allowing me to assist you with the sell of your mother's home. I am so happy we were able to get that sold for you quickly. And yes we got through those road blocks and got it closed! Thanks for your patience and help through the whole process, you were a wonderful client to work with!
