    Our Linda Frierdrich realtors(Jeremy Kocinski and Naureen Frierdich) and managing broker(Lindsey Egner) were extremely polite and helpful from the day we first looked at our new house, to the day we closed. When we first looked at our new house, we hadn't even prepared to sell our old one. Once I realized their ability to sell my house, the hardest part for me was physically moving my belonging, which was also made easier with the use of their moving truck and storage unit. The teams vast knowledge of the real estate market and constant professionalism made the whole process easier and more enjoyable for me and my family. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is, or is even thinking about selling or buying a home. Thanks! ~ Anthony Armbrecht, Waterloo, Il.
    This is my fourth time buying a home and second time using the Linda Frierdich group. Such an amazing team to work with! Our agent Carla Batson helps us through the entire process! From questions, to the contract, to closing she is there for you the entire time! Anyone in the market for a home in the area needs to call them first!!! ~ Ryan Spitz
    Working with Monica Schmidt at Century 21 was a great experience! She was very patient when looking at houses with me and was very flexible when scheduling showings. Monica was able to quickly figure out what I was looking for in a house and would let me know when something was available. Everything was so smooth from start to finish. I would absolutely recommend Century 21 and Monica Schmidt to anyone looking to buy a home. THANK YOU! ~ Michele Bivins, Valmeyer, IL
    I am so appreciative of the staff at CENTURY 21 Advantage! Naureen Frierdich continually provided her expertise and support, and the sale of my house went more quickly and smoothly than I could ever have imagined. The communications regarding showing my house to potential buyers were quick and convenient. I cannot praise Naureen enough! Monica Schmidt helped me find a wonderful home to rent after the sale of my house, which was just one less thing l had to worry about. I owe this agency a debt of gratitude and would recommend it again and again. ~ Julie Brueggemann, Columbia, IL
    Brad was very patient with us. He worked with us for 3 years, showing us countless houses. In the end, we decided to build. He was very respectful and worked hard to get certain things worked out. ~ Mammens & Columbia
    This was our very first home and at 58 years old I was freaked out. We have know Cassie Hyde for a number of years and during every step of the way she had our best interests at heart! Keeping me calmed down during the interminable waiting for answers and such. Thank you seems insufficient to me. But the icing on the wedding cake that was this process was during a conversation about our move to our new home, I mentioned to Cassie the need for a u-Haul truck to clean out the basement. She said oh no, the company has a truck you can borrow, just call Heather and she will schedule the time! Best perk ever!! ~ Tim Johnson, St. Louis, Missouri
    Our agent was very thorough and very attentive he was always available to answer questions and meet with us. We truly felt he genuinely cared about us and made sure he had our best interests in mind. ~ Thomas and Nikki Catchings, Swansea
    Good job again thanks to Brad and Linda and Lindsey ~ Dale Poetker Waterloo
    Love being informed weekly what's going on plus you get comments from realtors who show the house on what the comments were from the possible buyers. Being involved with the sell was helpful to keeping me informed. I was sent messages to agree to every appointment to see the house. Great realtor and company. ~ Betty Farnsworth, Belleville.
    Cassie was great to work with! ~ Greg Wurm, Sunset Hills, MO
    My purchasing agent was Jeremy Kocinski and he was absolutely amazing. We ran into some issues with a selling agent and Jeremy handled everything in the best way he possibly could. He went the extra mile in every way possible with us. We ended up with our dream home and if we ever did move, we would absolutely only use Jeremy. ~ Ashley Lukomski, Millstadt
    This is our third time using this office (2 purchases and 1 sale) Excellent experience from start to finish. We wouldn't even consider using anyone else! ~ Micah, Waterloo
    When I started looking at buying my first home, it was a very frustrating process. I had dealt with a particular real estate agency where one of their employees treated me very wrong over an inquiry about a home for sale. After this happened, I was not even interested in looking for homes... until I met Jeremy. I had called a yard sign phone number with a house I was interested in and that's how I got to know Jeremy. He was very honest with me and he was always there for me via text/phone calls to answer every question I had. He was very flexible and always wanted the best for me. When I finally decided on a home, I had no idea how the process worked which was very stressful but he made the whole process a breeze. I cannot say enough good things about Jeremy. It seems like the agency that treated me wrong was really a blessing in disguise that lead me to Jeremy. Words cannot explain how thankful I am for him. I plan on recommending him to all my friends and family! ~ Mallory Warnecke, East Carondelet
    Selling our house with Linda and her team was l Easier than we ever could have imagined. From start to finish, the process was clearly laid out and explained to us. The detail and dedication of her staff made for a stress free and easy sale. We would not hesitate to use Linda and her team I'm the future and will recommend her to our family and friends. ~ Andrew and Lindsay Riebeling, Waterloo, IL
    As a prior real estate agent in Missouri I had a pretty good idea of what it takes for a client to be happy and for the duties of an agent. When I decided to buy in Illinois I realized I was going to need some help, but not just anyone would do. Jeremy Kocinski not only helped me in the ways I felt it was necessary for me to help clients in prior past, he surpassed my expectations! Even when the deal was getting gritty and tough, he buckled down, and got the job done with ease and class. 10/10 experience! And I dont take referrals lightly! ~ Thomas, Troy
    Carla Mercer did an amazing job! Would recommend her to anyone! ~ Daniel Smith, Columbia
    She new exactly what we were looking for, and her team was quick with and questions, and were right there if we needed them ~ Justin Auer
    Everyone on Linda's team was very helpful and knowledgeable. We felt comfortable asking questions and would always receive timely responses. Really a great group of people to work with on what is one of the biggest purchases you'll make. ~ Abby Auer, St. Louis
    Very pleased with Linda I would strongly recommend her to friends and family ~ Heather Young, Ofallon, IL
    I did an interview with the three major players - and Linda really had all the answers. One of the company representatives did well, but did not have much "warmth" and "personality". Another representative had warmth and personality, but did not have All the answers. Linda had all the bases covered. How the marketing would be handled, the breakout of the numbers and she let me know all the "hidden possibilities" and therefor there were NO surprises. For me that was Huge. And of course she had warmth and personality and I just knew that there would not be any major "Drama" and there was not any Drama at all. ~ Joe from Columbia, Il
    Fantastic friendly staff who now I look at as family ~ Michael from illinois
    I've never been through the experience of buying a house and Jeremy and the entire staff were excellent when it came to letting me know that they were going to be ups and downs and helping me along every step of the way. It was actually fun because they made it feel like they were friends and they were there to help me. I genuinely felt like they cared about me and that they wanted to get me into the best house possible. Buy a house can be overwhelming with all of the documents and paperwork that needs to be acquired but they were patient and kept me updated on everything that I needed to be doing and they were also impressively quick on taking care of things that they needed to take care of. Linda Friedrich and her staff have amazing ratings and are the best around for a reason. ~ Joshua Kelley Belleville Illinois
    Good job ~ John Luecking. Waterloo
    Cassidy was amazing to work with. She was always there for questions and concerns. ~ Terry barnett St Louis mo
    Linda and her team were great to work with. They were fast, accurate and got the job done. ~ Nancy & Brad Cripe
    Linda Frierdichs team got the results we wanted. Lindsey and the team started with an effective online video that got thousands of views. Their determination and unmatched experience got the job done. ~ Angelia and Joel Friz
    Linda was wonderful through the whole process! This was the first time my husband and I had sold a house and Linda made the entire process as painless and smooth as she could for us having had to deal with very difficult buyers and an awful buyers agent from Missouri. We couldn't have asked for a better person then Linda to help us through the whole process! Wonderful company and great people!! ~ Kim Kasper, Columbia, IL
    I had previously purchased condo property w/help of Cassie Hyde. Was pleased with the speed everything moved and told Cassie I would be in touch with her with regard to selling my mother's house which was in a Trust. All worked out well and very happy to report the sale did not always go smoothly, but we got the job done. Over all , I was very happy to work with Century 21, Lindsey Egner and staff worked tirelessly to complete the sale. Very happy with all the help received . Would recommend to all friends ,relatives, and neighbors with no hesitation. ~ Sue-Ann Hoffmann, St Louis, MO
    Second time using the Linda Frierdich group. Bought the same house I just sold through them. I would not even consider using anyone else in the future. ~ Micah, Waterloo, IL
    Fine job on getting a quick sale. I am happy with the business transaction. Linda is the reason I chose Century 21. ~ Rob Nowlan, Valmeyer, IL
    Kim Ruhl was outstanding, top notch! Very professional and committed to her client's needs. Always available to answer questions, explain a process, etc. Can't say enough good words about her as well as Lindsey Egner. Lindsey was awesome, too. Great, great, great people to work with. ~ Stacy Dambacher, Freeburg, IL
    Kim was great...she was very knowledgeable and honest about what to expect. Helped us any way she could through out this process. ~ Brittany Mitchell, waterloo
    Linda was great! She was incredibly responsive and easy to reach. Came to my house and sat down with me to walk me thru expectations and the entire process and made me feel like my business mattered to her even though the overall commission was not a huge amount. I appreciated her making the whole process so stress free and easy for me. ~ Ally Jurek, Red Bud
    Linda took the time to explain the selling process and determined a fair selling price for our property. She and her crew did an outstanding job in marketing our home and we had a contract in less than three days. Entire process was easy for us and handled professionally. Highly recommend for anyone needing a real estate professional in the local area. ~ Ron Dippel/Leesburg, Fl
    Linda always does a great job! ~ Mark Vogt, Columbia, Illinois 62236
    I had an awesome experience as a first time home buyer This company is very professional and I highly recommend you all to anyone that's in the market to purchasing a house ~ Pedro&Marshay Wilson
    The support we received was amazing and made selling the house so much less stressful. We live an hour away which made meeting various inspectors and repair people very difficult, Kim was always available and went out of her way to meet with them in our stead. Lindsay was wonderful to deal with during closing, answering all my questions and concerns quickly and thoroughly. It wasn't necessarily an easy property to market but they made it look great and it sold faster than I expected. ~ Sarah, Belleville IL
    Met a Linda Frierdich employee when looking at a house to buy in Columbia IL. Kept with realtor due to being very professional and very helpful. Brad Krueger is the best in the business. And will always work with him as a buyer. ~ Ben Ramsey. Smithton IL
    Cassie Hyde was amazing! This was my first time buying a house and she helped to make it a great experiance! ~ Alexis Caruso, Affton
    I have recommended Ms. Frierdich to both family and friends. Her team provided both a quick response, and sale A completely professional and pleasurable experience. ~ Mark Dalle, Shiloh IL
    Brad Krueger was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was extremely responsive to any questions I had regarding any step of the process. In fact, Brad made the entire process seem easy! Being a first-time home buyer, I wasn't entirely sure of what all needed to be done. With the help of Brad, I knew exactly what needed to be done and when I needed to get it done by. I would recommend Brad to everyone! Brad Krueger should be given a raise and a vacation! ~ Kristopher Kirmess
    So, listen - I really didn't know what to expect when it came to the home selling process. I expected nothing but hassle, ergo I dreaded it like the plague. .......THEN I met Kim Ruhl. And if you've ever met her, you already know what I mean! Working with her was a true pleasure; she made sure I understood the logistics of the process, spelled out what to expect every step of the way, not to mention she went above and beyond making sure I was comfortable/achieving the exact end result that I wished. She was literally available 24/7 to answer questions for me, explain any confusing issues, whatever the case. And really, can you ask for anything more in a real estate agent? If you want one on one service, someone who makes you feel more like a friend than just another pay check, then you can't go wrong with this one. I enlisted Kim's help with selling my home on June 26, 2017. My home was officially sold (closed and everything!) on July 21. Less than a month later. If that doesn't speak for itself, I don't know what else will. The best advice I can give you, and which you can thank me for later, is to use Linda Friedrich/her staff for any and all of your real estate needs. After this experience, I know I will! ~ Ashley Hoffman
    Kim was our agent and became a friend. She was very helpful and guided us through the process. She answered the phones, no matter the day or time and understood our needs. ~ Glen
    Linda was very courteous, professional and most importantly, very knowledgeable in all of the services that she and her team provided. We would certainly recommend her to anyone who would like to sell their property. Thanks Linda! ~ Barry Rabin - St. Louis
    A Linda was very helpful and knowledgeable. She also listened to what I had to say and addressed my concerns in a professional manor. I really enjoyed working with Linda and would recommended her to anyone selling their home! ~ KT
    I will recommend Cassie Hyde to everyone I know. ~ Rick Campbell 600 Weiss Ave St. Louis, Mo 63125
    Kim was great to work with, she was extremely patient and always available when we had questions. She made the selling process as smooth as possible. We would highly recommend her to anyone. ~ Brad & Megan Dunker, Waterloo
    Kim knows the marketplace and correct value for listing our home. Todd did an excellent job of pictures and video of the house. Lindsay was very reliable and available with all the details involved with the offer/closing of our home. Great Team Effort!!! ~ R S Swansea IL
    Jessica was great, best agent I've ever worked with ~ Erin Schmelig, Waterloo
    Linda and her whole team were all outstanding and it was proven by how fast she sold my house. ~ Lillian Cole Belleville, IL
    Our agent would work so hard to get us into a house as soon as possible and almost any hour of the day. She seemed to be working around the clock for new homeowners such as our selves. When it came time to negotiating price she actually got it down lower than we plan to and she wanted the best deal for my girlfriend and I. ~ Ryan Spitz
    I would use Linda Frierdich Century 21 again without hesitation. The entire staff, and in particular our agent Kim Ruhl, were outstanding. ~ Mike Jenkins, OFallon IL
    Lyndsey was awesome! Kept me from coming unglued! ~ Terry Davis Waterloo
    I called my agent, Brad Krueger, numerous times on weekends and late into the evening for support in dealing with the home builder and mortgage company, and he was always there for me, even though I know I interrupted his personal life a few times. He really gave me the confidence that I could make this huge home purchase happen. I couldn't have done that with out him. He was right there with me all the way through the process. I loved how organized their company was. From the brochures and forms they gave me, to even offering a moving truck for my use. Everything made the move possible, since I was on small budget with huge financial constraints. They were right there with me and always concerned. Even at the risk of losing the sale, they were, at times, more concerned that I made the right financial decision, rather than pushing me to hurry and make the purchase. That was extraordinary customer service. I really appreciated that. Such a friendly approach that is rare. Other than the financial challenges I brought to the table, my agent went out of his way to make sure my needs were met, first and foremost. That was very surprising and refreshing to know. Brad Krueger is an excellent agent, very polite and thorough, and I will recommend him to everyone I know. I give Brad and Linda's team an A+ rating. ~ John Harper, Waterloo, IL
    Karen Brunsmann is wonderful, honest, accessible, and a Godsend to the first time home buyer. I could from the rooftops how thankful we are for Karen and Linda. ~ Kristen in St. Louis
    Linda and her team were sooo helpful in the process of buying our home. Our search began long distance from Florida so we needed to have complete trust in our realtor. They worked to find us just what we were looking for even when we both could not be there to speak on our own behalf. Will refer all friends and family! ~ Lindsey Mascoutah, IL
    The Linda Frierdich group was wonderful. That always made sure I had someone to get a hold of with any questions I would have. They worked with me on my house search for a year and were very patient with me. Would highly recommend them. ~ Elizabeth Thackrey, East Carondelet
    Linda and her team did an excellent job in a professional manner and quickly. ~ Mike Klucker, Perryville Missouri

    Brad Krueger was fantastic to work with. ~ John Kurtz Waterloo, IL
    Linda and her team were very professional and responded quickly throughout the whole process. We moved out of state while we were trying to sell our house and before we started with Linda we had another realtor and had a horrible experience. Linda took care of everything from inspections, repairs, and sale of our home. We never doubted her and her team. They made the whole process a great experience and we would highly recommend Linda and her team. ~ JR, Fenton MO
    We had a wonderful experience. We were extremely happy with the process and everyone at the firm. We would and have recommended the Linda Frierdrich group. ~ Kelsey Wendling, Belleville, IL
    My real estate agent was Sam Row. I had been referred to him by family and friends, which had spoke highly of Sam. My overall experience working with Sam Row exceeded my expectation. I would not hesitate to refer a friend or family member to Sam. He did an amazing job searching for the home I hope to live in for many years to come. Sam explain the process thoroughly. Sam was always available or would return my phone calls as soon as possible. To summarize my experience working with Sam into word would be excellent! ~ Ryan Harris, Columbia
    Linda and her team recently sold a home in my neighborhood relatively quick, under 30 days. I've worked with other agents in the past, but felt strongly that Linda and her team were the best fit for my needs. ~ John Bush
    We are so glad we chose this team to sell our home. We felt like we were heard and any concern we had was addressed in a timely professional manner. The customer service we were provided by Kim Ruhl was great! She was very personable and professional. ~ Jacob and Kate Liefer, Red Bud, IL
    Linda is a "top notch" real estate broker, one of the best in the business. She is very personable and professional and dedicated to making sure her clients receive excellent service from her firm. ~ David & Mary Ann Rodenberg
    We were referred to Kim by a friend. I called her immediately and when she called back, she cared about our home and what are feelings were due to being under pressure right away. When she came to see our home, we feel in love with her. Once she left, we didn't look anywhere else. She was just a phone call away. ~ Robert Lelly millstadt il
    Century 21 created a beautiful listing of our home. They did a great job of featuring highlights and showing off the versatility of the spaces. Our agent, Sam Row, was very patient and knowledgeable. He walked us through every step of the process and made a potentially stressful time very smooth. Our home was sold quickly at a fair price. We were very satisfied with the entire process. ~ Mandy Willingham, Columbia, IL
    Excellent overall experience from A to Z. Highly recommend Linda and the Century 21 Team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. ~ columbia il
    John and I were so pleased with every aspect of selling our house with your group. Kim Ruhl and Todd were an incredible team. Kim's knowledge and Todd's photography is what sold our house within the first few days on the market. Lindsay was a great help and very patient with all of our questions. We will be using you again when we buy. ~ Karen and John Hand, Swansea
    I just cannot say enough wonderful things about this company and the people. Kim Ruhl you are the kindest and sweetest person. You have the most gentle voice that always helps keep people from freaking out, or at least it helped me! My situation was stressful in itself so selling my beloved home was very hard but Kim help me with the process in such a kind and professional way that I cannot thank you enough. She then passed the torch to Lindsey and put me in more incredibly capable and kind hands. Linda you have the absolute best people working for you. You have a very, very kind and wonderful team - at least all the one's I've dealt with and I can't imagine anyone else not being the same in your office. I've made some new friends during this process and I feel so blessed. I absolutely loved working with Whitney Blanchard, Kim Ruhl and Lindsey Egner. If I am ever in the market for another home or to sell my home I will be back I promise. I will refer all of you to anyone that is looking for a good company to work with because I know that you didn't just treat me like I was special, you treat everyone that way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming into my life. You guys are the best. ~ Judy F., Waterloo, IL
    LF Real Estate Group is a prime example of what perfection is. I dealt with Kim as my selling agent, she was not only friendly, but extremely knowledgeable bringing a plethora of real estate experience to the table. She is honest with you right from the start and makes you feel comfortable from the beginning to the end! My house sold in less than a month on the market for full asking price, so I could not be happier. ~ Cody T
    Linda and her team made my selling and buying experience fast and easy. My home was sold on the first day it was listed for over our asking price. Would recommend to everyone! ~ Tom Haag, Columbia IL.
    Linda Frierdich did an outstanding job selling our property. It had been on the market for a year with another broker, and Linda treated it as a brand new listing with all her ads and marketing strategies. ~ Joanne Thomas, Reno, NV
    We couldn't be happier with Linda Frierdich and her wonderful staff! She sold our property quickly and all sides of the transaction are well satisfied. We tell everyone looking to buy or sell property to use her. We completely trust her expertise and know the outcome will be the very best possible.. ~ John and Pam Rehling, Millstadt, IL
    Linda Frierdich and the CENTURY 21 Advantage Real Estate team were outstanding. We were relocating for a new job, so a timely sale was critical. Kim Ruhl did a detailed analysis of the best sale price for a quick sale. Our house was listed on Thursday and we had a completed signed offer by the weekend. ~ Dan, Rome NY
    Kim was very professional. Her recommendations and communication from start to closing were great. ~ Sarah and Gary Gray, Daphne, Alabama
    Kim and Lindsey made selling our house very easy. I would recommend them to anyone and use then again if the situation arises. ~ Nichole Hayes, Columbia IL
    When I asked several local business people and they all suggested Linda's group I knew they were the best. Todd Ruhl took fabulous photos! Kim Ruhl was absolutely amazing during the whole process! I can't imagine a better experience! Kim Ruhl worked with me for 4 months before I was able to sign a contract with her. Kim helped me deal with a hostile real estate broker situation and with her expert knowledge I was able to prepare my large property for the first showing that ended up becoming a sale. No missteps. No problems. Just expert advice and highly professional handling of my sale led to a seamless closing. The entire process from initial meeting to closing was handled above and beyond my wildest dreams! ~ Deanne Bauer, Belleville
    I loved the whole experience. Kim Ruhl came to my house and helped me figure out what needed to be done before I put it up for sale. I did everything - they came in and Todd took amazing photos and we had a contract in 2 days. Lindsey handled all of the closing details. It was a total package from start to finish. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell a home. ~ Mary Lauck - St Louis MO
    I would've never imagined that selling a house could be such a pleasure. Kim Ruhl was amazing. She handled every concern that we had promptly and professionally. She put us at ease with her extensive knowledge of the area and what it would take to sell a home. She was simply wonderful! ~ Jenn Brunworth, Belleville, Il
    Kim Ruhl was excellent in all details on the sale of our house. She was always available by either phone or text. The marketing strategy the Linda Frierdrich teams puts together is top notch. Email noticifications weekly to see how many views your house is getting by the different media outlets was very informational and helpful. I willl always go with the Linda Frierdrich group when buying and selling. ALWAYS! ~ Jeff and Jennie Jacobs
    I would recommend Linda to anyone needing to sell a higher end property. She understands the market and will be tenacious in getting the sale. ~ Bill Ackermann, Belleville, Il.
    I cannot say enough about Linda Frierdich and her team. They are the most down to earth, helpful, friendly, and hard working group of people I have ever worked with. They sold my home in less than 48 hours, too! Even if it hadn't sold that quickly, I would still be raving about all of them. Linda Frierdich is amazing, and the best hands down!! ~ Stephanie A. Waterloo
    Very knowledgeable about the market and appropriate home valuation. Extremely professional friendly and courteous making the whole process very smooth and straight forward. I would have no hesitation in recommending Linda and Century 21 ~ Martin Berkerey
    The Linda Frierdich team did a great job evaluating our home, and helping us stage it for the best showing opportunities. Kim was professional and very approachable, but clearly knew the market and how to get the best price for our home. We would strongly recommend using the Linda Frierdich team for selling our buying a home. ~ Lisa Safarian, Belleville, IL
    Selling our house with Linda Frierdrich was extremely smooth. She made the experience simple, gave us a plethora of resources, and help ease any of our worries. It was great to have a binder full of different people to help us get our home ready to sell. Using her moving trucks during our process helped save time as well. Being able to store some items in the storage units for two months also was an added bonus. I would strongly recommend others to use Linda Frierdrich and her staff as they are professional, understanding, and there to answer Any questions at all times. ~ Christine Matrisotto
    Kim Ruhl provided me with excellent service. I enjoyed having someone that was available and realistic. ~ Mina, Seansea
    Whitney was great! Would recommend her to friends and/ or use her again for sure ~ Martha gray, Columbia, il

    Linda and her team were great! They were there to answer all of my questions timely and made sure all of my needs were met. They were flexible and bent over backwards to make sure everything worked out in my favor. Linda was friendly, personable and very easy to work with from beginning to high pressure tactics at all. The experience was pleasant and laid back, which helped to make what could have been a very stressful time much easier. I was very pleased with Linda, and I would definitely use her again. ~ Stephanie Fike, Columbia
    Linda has such a great knowledge of the area, and online presence that our house sold in less than a week. A huge thank you to Linda and her team. ~ Chad
    Linda and Kim were great! Kim was always available to answer any questions we had. She was very patient and professional. We would absolutely work with them again! ~ Sara Belleville,Il
    Linda's team was amazing! I had to leave the area quickly and her team took over, made the correct recommendations and then just handled it. I was so relieved. I couldn't get back to the property to make sure that all was well, but Linda and her team stepped up and took care of everything, from mowing the yard to making sure I was contacted (almost daily it seemed!) for every little thing. I never once had to worry about a thing. I would recommend them to everyone who has a house to sell, Linda and Lindsey were the best and got the job done!

    It was a great experience with no stress. Kim was wonderful to deal with as was the rest of the staff. ~ Joyce Klindworth, Waterloo, IL
    We attempted to sell our house numerous times over several years. One agent fired herself, another damaged our property, and a third misrepresented our contract. We became so discouraged that we took our house off of the market for nearly 2 years. Kim Ruhl had just listed a house in our neighborhood. With skepticism I asked for a business card. Kim was upfront, honest and very knowledgeable of the market in our area. She worked with our time restrictions and around our renter. In 2 short months we were under contract. Our experience with Linda Frierdich and Century 21 Advantage Real Estate, Inc., was exceptional from the beginning to the end. We could not have asked for a more experienced, professional and knowledgeable team. Thank you all for helping us sell our house. ~ Alice, Belleville
    Linda and her staff were absolutely the best Real Estate office I have ever worked with. Professional, courteous and extremely well managed. We would highly recommend this office for any Real Estate needs, exemplary. ~ Roy and Jennifer Hewett, Columbia, illinois
    My husband and I had our house on the market for 8 months with a different broker before switching to Linda Frierdich. They did an outstanding job. The marketing of our house was amazing resulting in in at least one if not multiple showings every week. It did take several months to get an offer on the house but it was not because they weren't trying, they definitely were. We highly recommend Linda Frierdich to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. If we are ever in the market to do either again I will definitely be giving them a call. ~ Gary and Tara, Smithton IL
    Linda Frierdich and her team did a great job with keeping my wife and I informed about the process along the way in purchasing our home. Can't be more pleased. ~ Wes Braswell, Waterloo,IL.
    Highly Exceptional sales experience. I am very satisfied with my selection of Century 21 and Brad Krueger/Linda Frierdich as my agent. This agency really cares about their clients and will do whatever it takes to leave you satisfied. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, you can not go wrong with this agency. Every step for buying a home was clearly explained, and these guys are there 24/7 to answer any questions and to address any concerns you might have. The home-buying process runs immensely smoother with competent and reliable people on your side - and these guys easily meet that criteria. You will not regret your choice to work with Linda Frierdich and staff. ~ Matt, O'fallon

    Linda and her team are the best of the best! If you are wanting to sell your property there is no one else to even consider. From beginning to close they handled everything in a very professional manner. What I appreciate mostly is knowing Linda and her team were on my team.

    Very professional service. Great business detail from beginning to end. ~ Charlie, Columbia
    My sisters and I worked with Kim Rulh, an agent at Linda Frierdich's agency to accomplish the sale of our family home in Lebanon, Illinois, after our father passed away.

    Sam Row is an excellent agent. Linda referred me to him. My husband passed away recently which is why I am moving. Sam was very sympathetic & understanding of my particular situation and needs. He was never pushy or in a hurry. He recommended many homes, most of which were quite a few miles from their office. In fact. the house I purchased was a long drive for him. He is very knowledgeable & really seems to enjoy what he does. I required some hand-holding & Sam was very patient & respectful of me. Definitely the caliber of person I prefer to deal with. He truly seemed to want to find just the right home for me...and he did! Thanks Sam! Definitely above and beyond my expectations. I would absolutely refer anyone to this agency. ~ Kathy L Pevely MO
    Kim was very pleasant to work with. We would sell with her again if our buying agent,Brad from Linda's group didn't find us the perfect house. Kim would be the selling agent I would recommend to anyone. Kim helped make our sale successful so we could move to our dream home. I couldn't imagine not using Kim, she sold it fast, was very helpful, friendly, professional, knows the market well, what more could I ask for? Kim R was very professional and very personal too. She was quick to answer any questions and helped us relate to our buyers. She even found moving boxes to help us. She gave staging tips and advice on how to make the most of the showings. She knows the market of our area very well. We were happy to be under contract in only two days. We loved the personal attention and the knowledge of the market in our area. Our house received a contract on it the next day after it was online. The photography helped make listing and selling it quick. Kim was very quick to let us know of our contract and helped us work thru the negotiations. ~ Thorne family, Columbia
    We would use Linda's group again, however they helped us find the perfect house and we won't be moving again. ~ Thorne family, Columbia
    My sister and I as co-executors of my Dad's estate interviewed 3 realtors, including Linda. Linda was not only very enthusiastic, but also had done the most advance preparation. This was even more impressive when considering that my Dad's house was of very moderate value. Linda is extremely personable and made the process as enjoyable as possible. Her experience and judgment were very helpful in developing our sales offer and negotiation of the contract. ~ Ron Nottmeier - Des Peres, MO

    Linda exceeded expectations as did her staff/associates. Such an amazing group! Everyone was always friendly, patient, proficient, and dependable. In particular, Lindsey was all of these things, and just outstanding to work with in every way. She scheduled inspections and appointments when I was not available. I can't say enough good things and really appreciated her. I felt like I was in very good hands at all times. Linda and Lindsey were confident and reassuring, calming my occasional jitters.

I live on the east coast and the sale of my rental property was taking place in the Midwest. Lindsey was patient rather than annoyed with my anxiety during the closing process. Very professional and tactful. Linda Frierdich's team is amazing. Her advertising campaign is excellent! I have already referred Century 21 to several friends and colleagues. ~ Malissa McLean, Washington D.C.
