Testimonials

Charlie & Mary Kay, Thanks so much for all your help!  Both of you went the “extra mile” for me.  I appreciate all the time and effort that was put into the preparation for the sale.  You guys are the best!   Scott C. Hoffmann, Trustee…September 2017
Kaimann Auctions & Real Estate made this process very easy and smooth, from the the pre-visits on the land to signing the contract.  We will use them in the future for sure!!  Thanks for the help!  Shawn Cooper, Cooper Outdoor Services, Inc….August 2017
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience from initial contact through closings on five farm tracts.  Since Kaimann offers either listing or auction, we discussed the pros and cons of each.  I felt auction offered more of what I was looking for, so that is what I chose.  With his vast experience, Charlie knew how best to divide my 106 acres into tracts, and how to give the high bidder choice on the similar two or three tracts.  He did extensive research on the property, including the pipelines that crossed it.  In addition to the scheduled Open House, he met many other parties for individual showings.  The auction yielded a record amount for tracts of similar acreage in the area.  Charlie and Mary Kay are knowledgeable, friendly professionals and I enjoyed having them handle my sale.  James L. Forbeck, Trustee Of Alphonse Forbeck Trust…May 2017
Charlie and his crew did a wonderful job on handling the Auction and Sale of Wehde Estate land, both house and 3 acres and 101 acres of leveed farmland east of Highway 79.  The Estate received much higher prices than we expected.  Charlie does his homework like a professional.  Thomas Burkemper, PR for Wehde Estate…February 2017
Kristi and I both were very happy with how everything turned out.  We had the experience of listing our home with an agent in Troy before we listed with you that was a complete waste of our time.  We are so happy that we then listed with you, a professional Realtor. Having you come to our home prior to listing so that you could tell us what we should do to put ourselves in a position to sell our home as quickly as possible was obviously so helpful. We were under contract in less than 10 days if I remember correctly. So all of your advice and the time and effort was rewarded with a quick sale.  You were so helpful answering all of our silly questions and guiding us through closing, especially with what turned out to be difficult circumstances with our buyer and buyers lender. We were very thankful.  I hope that at some point in time we will have someone, anyone from Troy ask us who we would recommend as a Realtor. We would be happy to let them know what great service and professionalism you and Charlie extended to us.  Ron Suhr and Kristi Miley…May 2016

Thanks Charlie & Mary Kay!  You were a tremendous help in getting our property sold.  You addressed any concerns/questions quickly.  Thanks for making this process go as smoothly as possible!   From all the Freise Family…March 2016

It was a pleasure working with Charlie and Mary Kay.  We had to sell our Dad’s house and the contents inside, which was an emotional time and a large task.  Charlie and Mary Kay were there every step of the way and made the process a little less difficult.  They are very professional, patient and caring people.  We would recommend Charlie and Mary Kay Kaimann to family, friends and anyone looking for expert and caring service.  Pat Callier, Teri Boschert & Lori Goedert…February 2016

Charlie & Mary Kay,  we could not have asked for a smoother process with the recent purchase of our property.  It was so nice to work with you knowing that you were representing us in the best way possible with our best interests at heart.  We would not hesitate to call you again or recommend you to family and friends.  Sincerely,   Pat & Rhonda Wurm…October 2015

We recently auctioned off two inherited properties with Kaimann Auctions & Real Estate all in one day!  Charlie and Mary Kay made the process so easy and they were always available to answer our many questions.  Charlie even stopped by our house to ease our minds the day before the auction.  I work as a teacher at Sacred Heart School in Troy and felt that with Charlie and Mary Kay being part of our parish family they were people we could put our faith and trust in.  We are so pleased to say that Charlie and Mary Kay did an excellent job selling both properties along with their wonderful staff!  It is a large burden lifted off our shoulders.  Thank You Charlie, Mary Kay and staff.  We are blessed to know you and consider you friends.  We recommend Kaimann Auctions because they care!   Cathy Schmidt…June 2015

Thank you Mary Kay. You were a pleasure to work with from start to finish! Every other realtor I had ever contacted to try to work with before kind of treated us more as a burden since we as new buyers needed a little extra TLC since we never bought a home before and we were kind of treated as last priority. You took us (Shea and I) both by the hand and walked us through with pleasure. You were easy to contact when needed and made us feel like we were a top priority. I would recommend you in a heartbeat!  If we ever go through the moving process again we will be returning to you for sure! And the goody bag we got at closing was very kind. Great experience! Thank you again for all of your help!   Shea & Melissa Parks…April 2015

My husband Paul & I decided to sell our farm and home, as it was time.  We also needed to buy a home that was in the Troy area…not too big and on small acreage.   Since Charlie & Mary Kay sold us our farm in 1983, we gave this task to them.  We also needed to have an Auction to sell farm machinery, antiques, etc.  It was no small task.  We were worried about a lot of things that could go wrong, but Charlie & Mary Kay were up to all the challenges that lay ahead.  We sold our farm and home…we bought a nice home to move into & our auction was a big success!  Even though it was the end of February on a Saturday with sleet and snow at any moment, we had a large turnout.  Also our thanks goes out to all the family, extended family, Ron, Carol at the office, and special mention to Charlie’s son, Ben, who is a natural as an Auctioneer!  All this took only 7 months…not bad!!    Paul & Joanie Huff…March 2015

Dear Charlie and Mary Kay:   On behalf of the Rozier Family, thank you for your professionalism, your patience, your down home kindness and your pure country charm. Your knowledge of the area along with the resources that you brought into our deal were very helpful in getting this lengthy deal completed. Now that we are somewhat neighbors we hope to be seeing you all around.    Scott & Kelly Rozier…March 2015

Mary Kay was a joy to work with. As first time home buyers we had tons of questions, Mary Kay was able to answer all these questions with ease. She was always on top of what needed to be done which made purchasing a home easy. We will definitely be using her services in the future! Thanks again for everything!
Melanie Thoroughman & Jeremy Webb…December 2014

Thanks so much for selling our property on Scott Rd. It was a pleasure to work with you and know that you did all the particulars on a property that has been in our family for 68 years. We knew that your expert opinion would get us timely results that we were looking for. We will for sure use your services soon again on our other properties.
Dale & Marlene Wolfe…September 2014

Thank you so much for a smooth transaction. From our first engagement through completion of the purchase, I felt very comfortable working with you. Using you as a dual agent in representing both and seller and me as the buyer proved to be a non-concern as I always felt you dealt with both parties fairly and equally. And I especially appreciate the great job in communicating status with me all the way through closing.
Bruce Fennedy…September 2014

Everything was great, the house sold very fast. You guys were great, very helpful, always friendly and knowledgeable. We couldn’t have asked for a better REALTOR. Thank you very much for all your help! Gordon Lane…August 2014

We really appreciated the help Charlie and Mary Kay gave us when it was time to sell the personal property and real estate of my deceased mother. They were so nice and very knowledgeable during the entire process. Charlie was very accurate in what he thought the personal property and house would sell for, and we appreciated his honesty. Mary Kay was very helpful with all the details of the business end of the auction and closing on the property. Thank you for helping us through the process!                                                                                             Mary Austerschmidt…July 2014

Charlie and May Kay were instrumental in getting my deal done. They were always quick to respond to my questions and helped greatly in getting over some hurdles that came up during the process. The Kaimanns were great to work with! Thanks again for all of the help! Michael Phillips…June 2014

Charlie & Mary Kay, thank you for all your help in selling my Dad’s house. I know that dealing with 4 sellers that were scattered everywhere wasn’t easy. You always managed to keep us all informed and updated to any changes. The help you gave us in getting through all the inspections was fantastic. The closing went so smoothly, even for the long distance people. Thanks again! Terry Burkemper…May 2014

Thank You Kaimann Auctions.  This purchase was the first time I dealt with your company.  Everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful, and made my purchase a very easy process.  I look forward to attending your future auctions.  Mike Faszold, Faszold Heating And Cooling…May 2014

Forgot to thank the Kaimanns, Charlie Kaimann, Mary Kaimann, and Ben and company.  You guys are the best.  If anyone needs an auction company call Kaimann Auctions.   Lora Brandon Scharnhorst…April 2014

Kaimann Auction and Real Estate had my farm listed. They were very professional with keeping me abreast on the listing, contacts, and advice on the sale. They had a buyer, made sure he was qualified, and we closed in a very quick and timely manner. Thanks Mary Kay and Charlie!  Barbara Creech…April 2014

We can always count on your expertise and honesty…that’s why you’re the best!!!   Lauren Schellenger…April 2014

You are one of the best!  Dale Hahn…March 2014

We were well pleased with the professional way the auction was conducted.  We appreciated the attention given us as buyers, to aid us in the process of buying property through auction.   Lowell & Etta Cathey…December 2013

Our recent land purchase was something we had been wanting for quite sometime..  When Charlie held the Open House for the 29+ acres, we fell in love with the property.  He was helpful and answered our many questions.  Charlie & Mary Kay & the seller of the property shared in our happiness the day of the auction when we purchased the place of our future home.  Mary Kay made a few follow-up calls before our closing to make sure everything was in order.  Charlie was present when we signed the papers and closed on our ground.  Charlie & Mary Kay made this experience pleasant and easy.  Thanks for everything!   Rob & Angela Bruns…November 2013

Charlie & Mary Kay…thanks for your fast and efficient handling of my parent’s estate (Carroll & LeRoy Watts).  I greatly appreciate your extra work to make sure all was in order….also for answering my many questions.  I will certainly recommend Kaimanns in the future!  You were friendly and comfortable to work with.  I almost can’t believe you got it all done in the scheduled amount of time.  Thank you so much.   Julie Hoffman…November 2013

Real Estate Auction was easier than I thought possible.  Charlie & Mary Kay with property documents, were extremely courteous and helpful.  Definitely keeping track of their auctions.   Ron Spears…August 2013

Mary Kay…we really appreciate your help with the home buying process.  You made this experience simple & fun.  Thank you for being available on OUR schedule.  Thank you for  being a part of this exciting time in our lives.  We appreciate your exceptional service.   Anne Schomber & Luke Runge…July 2013

It was a pleasure working with Charlie.  He worked hard, was understanding, cooperative and explained everything.  He and his family work well together and know how to get things going.  It was a pleasure to get to know all of them.   Evelyn Zalabak…June 2013

Kaimann Auctions & Real Estate has been very helpful during our recent home purchase in Troy, MO.  Mary Kay has been very helpful also with her real estate insight and professionalism.  Please stop in to see them on Hwy. H.  They are easy to find!    Sonny & Joyce Juergensmeyer…May 2013

Wanting to sell my house, I chose Charlie Kaimann to go to for advice.  We discussed the pros and cons of listing and auctioning the property.  Since sooner was better for me, we chose the auction route.  The date was set and from there it was full speed ahead.  Appointments were made for showing those with interest and an open house was set near sale date.  The day was cold but we had a nice crowd and all went well!  I was very pleased with the help from Kaimann Auctions & Real Estate from beginning to end.  Thanks to all!    Sharon Davis….March 2013

How many good things can I say about Kaimann Auctions & Real Estate and crew?  They had 3 of us to deal with, so scheduling meetings and arrangements were a challenge.  But Mary Kay and Charlie were always patient, courteous and professional.  Even though it was a stressful and sad time in my life, Kaimann was the “way to go”.  They made no promises of how the auction of property and real estate would turn out but instead gave us an honest rough idea of what to expect.  Oh…and we had a few laughs along the way too!   Sallie Cortelyou….October 2012

I strongly recommend the services of Kaimann Auctions & Real Estate.   The services they provided were excellent!!   B. Stephen Cortelyou…October 2012

Very pleased with the way the property was presented and handled from Purchase At Auction to Closing Date and all the professionalism throughout.  Thanks!   Roger Creech…October 2012

Our experience while working with Mary Kay was exceptional.  She was always there to answer any questions we had in the purchase of our new home.  We felt she made us her top priority and knew we could count on her.  She took the time to meet us at the house whenever needed and never made us feel rushed.  We would highly recommend working with Kaimann Real Estate!   Joe & Angie Gentemann…September 2012

From beginning to end I was extremely pleased with the services I received from Mary Kay & Charlie Kaimann!  Charlie was right on the money with all his predictions!  According to my good friend, Scott Schwerer – who is also an auctioneer – all of Charlie’s advice was sound.  They did an excellent job in getting the house and yard ready to “show” – including retrieving an old scrapbook  I had overlooked, which I found, included a priceless note written to me by my mother.  I still have closing to go, but I am confident it will go as smoothly as all other dealings with Charlie & Mary Kay.  I highly recommend them both.   Joyce Lake… September 2012

Charlie & Mary Kay Kaimann are the nicest and sweetest people you would want to do business with.  They will help in any way they can.  They are very honest people and good country people.   Richard & Helen Adams…August 2012

Rick and I are so happy we chose Kaimann Auctions & Real Estate to list our home.  Not only did you sell our home in 3 months, but your work ethic, sense of humor and guidance was amazing!  Thank you both and we would recommend you both anytime.   Rick & Kathy Warner…July 2012

My husband and I started looking for a house this past May. Our situation was a little different as my husband is in the service and we were living in another state, while trying to find a house in Missouri. Mary Kay couldn’t have made it any easier for us. We were first time homebuyers and we didn’t know to much about buying real estate. She guided us through it so perfectly. There was a lot of faxing and phone calling and she never missed a beat. We found our house in just a few short weeks and closed about 30 days later. We love our new home and we are so grateful for Mary Kay helping us to find it! I don’t see us moving again any time soon, but when we do she will be the first person I call!    Lindsey Farris…July 2012

My wife and I were looking for a house for when we got married.  Kaimann Real Estate was extremely helpful in the process of searching.  We told Mary Kay what we were looking for, our price range, and the sort of financing we were wanting to use.  Mary Kay set us up with a list of homes that not only met our criteria, but also homes that she thought might genuinely be a good fit for us.   She was extremely flexible when it came to viewing the homes.  Mary Kay was very forward with what we needed on our part to move forward in the process and also very open and informative about potential problems with the homes.   Needless to say, Kaimann Real Estate made the stressful experience of shopping for and buying a home relatively easy and fun.  My wife and I couldn’t be happier.  Kaimann Real Estate didn’t just help us find a house or a place to live, but more of a place to call home.    Tyler Finley…June 2012

I just wanted to thank you for the successful sale of my Uncle’s personal items and home.   I must admit I was apprehensive of an auction at first-especially of the house.   I soon began to realize that everything was in good hands.   You were both great to work with and took the worries out of everything for me.  It was all a success and I would gladly recommend you to anyone who inquires.   Thanks again.  And keep in touch.    Pat Snyder, Personal Rep for John Hodge Estate…June 2012

We can’t thank Mary Kay enough for the role she played in the purchase of our property!  It was a relief to work with an agent that truly looked out for our best interest and not just the commission in her pocket!  Never did she make us feel like there was any pressure on us.  Mary Kay was always available when we needed her and on top of getting things done in a timely fashion.  She made what can be a very tedious process so much easier for us.  Everyone at Kaimann Real Estate is a delight to deal with and as honest and down to earth as they come!  Hands down, Kaimann has our business for life!!!   Lauren & Steve Schellenger…May 2012

We contacted Kaimann Auctions in December 2011 to discuss the sale of my late Father’s estate.  After meeting with Charlie and going over the auction process, we felt very comfortable trusting Charlie and Mary Kay to handle selling the things my dad worked so hard for all of his life.  Throughout the whole auction process, we never felt pressured or rushed to do anything we weren’t comfortable with.   As an example, the day before, while the family was preparing for the sale, Charlie overheard one of the Granddaughters stating that she wanted some personal items of her Grandpas but was very apprehensive and nervous about bidding against other people.  Charlie took the time to explain and practice with her how the bidding process worked.  Turns out the day of the sale, Charlie’s teaching paid off because within the first 15 minutes everyone knew who #19 was and she walked away with everything she wanted!   It was a rough day emotionally for our family but Charlie, Mary Kay and the entire staff made this process so much easier for us.  We would highly recommend their services to anyone, they did an amazing  job!   Matt & Patty Adams…April 2012

After deciding to put our house up for sale we contacted Kaimann Real Estate. Talked to Charlie and Mary Kay Kaimann about the listing. Mary Kay spent several hours with us going over every detail and procedure. She did an excellent job with the listing and description. Also did an excellent job on the virtual tour pictures.  After listing the house we had a contract in 9 days and closed in 30 days. Everything went like clockwork. Thanks for the good work.  Scott Hansen…February 2012

For 8 months during 2008 my wife and I were looking to buy a house in St. Charles or Lincoln County.  We went through three real estate agents without luck.  Then we got lucky, we were at an auction and met Mary Kay and we told her what we were looking for, 4 days later we were closing.  Prompt, professional and passionate about her career, we were very impressed and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house in St. Charles or Lincoln County.  We are still in the house and absolutely love it.    Joe Steenbergen…February 2012

We are very pleased to have worked with Charlie & Mary Kay in the purchase of our new property.  They are very knowledgeable about the area and the market around where we were looking.  Mary Kay was always available when we needed questions answered.  We would highly recommend Kaimann Auctions & Real Estate for your real estate needs. Debbie & Tim Dugan…January 2012

I want to personally thank you for all the work and effort you put into our “stressful” accomplishment.  Buying our first house was an exciting and emotional roller coaster, but you took the time to thoroughly double-check every detail and address every little need and worry we had!!  You put us at ease knowing that all was being taken care of!!  We are very glad to not only have a wonderful aunt, but a real estate agent who goes above and beyond expectations!!  Thank you soooo much!!  We have you to thank for having such a beautiful and wonderful FIRST HOME!!  Now we can relax and enjoy this addition to the start of our lives!!   Many Thanks,  William G. Barnes  & Meghan E. Runge…November 2011

Thank you so much for all your help.  You made things so easy in a rough time.   You were always there to answer any questions we might have…very open and honest people to deal with.    Richard & Janie Cody…November 2011

“Mary Kay helped us find our first home, so when it came time to sell, it was an easy decision to use her services once again. Her expertise of the real estate market was key in the sale of our home.

I would recommend Kaimann Auctions & Real Estates to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks for all your help!”  Chad & Mandy Runge…October 2011

Mary Kay was very helpful when it came to buying my first home. She was there in a moment’s notice to answer any questions I had and she made sure that the process went smoothly. I want her to know I appreciate her help and couldn’t have asked for someone more knowledgeable and easy to work with. You can tell she has a lot of experience in the realty business and I plan on using her if I ever sell or buy another home. Thanks for everything!    Dan Bauer…October  2011

Charlie and his staff did an Absolute Auction for me on 10-22-11.  They did everything from appraising the real estate to staging and auctioning the estate.  I found everyone of his staff professional and very friendly.  I can’t thank them enough for all of their help.   Charles Stanek…October 2011
