About: After serving in the Army, my professional career has been in the Real Estate Industry. At the end of 2001, I started working in the home remodeling industry in DFW working in sales & design for one of the largest exterior re-modelers in the area. I then transitioned into home lending, and was fortunate enough to work in that industry for years. I have been blessed to co-own a Design Firm, with my wife, that specialized in Kitchen & Bath design, as well as new home design. I have been able to take all of that experience and I use it to serve my clients to make sure that they are taken care of from all facets of the transaction.
I strive to serve!

Thanks Jeff -Andy P.Jeff SchnellJeff was amazing. We were on a short time line to purchase a house and Jeff did everything he could to ensure we closed before our lease was up. The first day Jeff contacted us he drove from Oklahoma just to show us houses that same night. Walking through the home we wanted Jeff gave his expertise on numerous things that us as new homeowners wouldn't even think about. The process was so easy. In a matter of 6 weeks we went from renters to home owners. The first night in our new home our AC wouldn't kick on and we asked Jeff if he knew anything about it and came to our house within an hour and fixed it. He is very personable and truly cares about his clients more than the money he takes home. You can tell he actually enjoys working with people. Brian W.Jeffrey SchnellIf you looking to buy or sell a house in the Wichita and surrounding areas, you should seek out Jeff Schnell to help with the process. A very honest real estate individual who helped us to find our home in Andover, KS. The best part is, he does not find you a home and then jumps to his own business. I can call Jeff for a referral and he always has one readily available to make the house a home. The experience was seamless and I felt very comfortable to have him as my real estate agent. Buying a house is a big step in the commitment arena, and Jeff made the process worthwhile buy providing guidance and showing the right houses that met our needs. I do recommend Jeff for your home buying needs as I will recommend him to me again! -Thomas A.Jeffrey Schnell
Answers (18)Displaying: 18 Most Recent AnswersAnswered: Oct 20, 2017Brian It completely depends on a lot of other variables- such as current sqft of living space, and where (what room) are you planning on carving this space from, is 3/1 or 3/2 standard for your neighborhood, also the cost to do a bathroom depends on the size and will help determine if it is worth it. If you neighborhood is standard 3/2 then it will definitely help with value and with marketability. If you are doing it just to sell the home, you may need to take other factors into consideration. I would be happy to meet with you and give you an opinion based on the home itself, the neighborhood and also based on what the comps are for your neighborhood. Not only am I a Realtor, but I also co-own a design firm with my wife so this is an area that I have experience in. You can click my profile and find all of my contact info there if you want me to answer more questions. Good luck!Answered: Oct 19, 2017Anonymous..... 1st you have to be willing to give up some contact info, and reaching out to a reputable and qualified Realtor is a start. They can dig through historical info that can be helpful in determining if this is a good fit for a home for you. They can also schedule a time for you to see the home in person to be able to make a better decision.Answered: Oct 19, 2017Melissa Searching for rentals that will accept sect 8 can be exhausting. There is no filter for that, therefore you have to do the leg work of calling on each listing, or reading through the details on each rental listing. There really is no way around it. You can check with the Wichita.gov site and search, they have lots of outlets and resources to help speed the search process up.Answered: Oct 19, 2017Paul You need to contact Homes dotcom service dept if you want it listed for rent specifically on this site. However, a quick way to get property listed for sale/rent is to employee an agent to work on your behalf. It gets listed in MLS and then syndicated across multiple sites on your behalf. You can do the legwork your self one site at a time and take all the calls and conduct all of the property showing and then negotiate, or you can hire a competent agent to do those things for you.Answered: Oct 19, 2017In answer to: we are looking for a 3 bedroom place that accepts dogs?Victoria There are several sites that allow you to filter for "pets allowed", use them. Beyond that, just old fashioned leg work of calling and asking the questions is how you are going to find a property manager or landlord that will work for you and your pets, just because they say they will rent to pet owners does not mean that they are friendly to pet owners. Do your homework. Also, have you considered buying instead of renting, you get to control a whole lot more of the pet issues when you own!Answered: Oct 19, 2017In answer to: Can I post a listing on here?Audrey If you are an agent, it will feed from MLS; if you are not an agent you need to contact Homes dotcom service dept for their options for FSBO sellers.Answered: Oct 19, 2017In answer to: How do i list a home for rent?You need to contact Homes dotcom service dept to see what options best fit your needs. If you are an investor and needing to rent properties and you don't want to handle the operations side, you need to get with a property management company. If you need some referrals please let me know.Answered: Oct 19, 2017In answer to: Can I post a listing on here?Audrey If you are an agent, yes, it will feed from MLS, sometimes you will need to update, but that is the same for any dotcom. If you are not an agent, then you need to contact Homes dotcom customer service about their options for FSBO (For Sale by Owner).Answered: Oct 19, 2017Lee Ann Any repairs and updates to a bathroom is more important than whether is has a tub or a shower when it comes to resell. The current trend is a large walk-in shower vs a tub-shower combo. However in a smaller home that only has one bathroom it would be more important to have a tub-shower combo if possible. if there is a current tub, that has a shower combo, why is your contractor telling you that you cannot keep it? Maybe you need a new contractor; or at least a 2nd opinion. There is more than 1 option for design no matter what the space. But ultimately, you need to refer to my 1st comment, updated and repaired will always outweigh "in need of repair".Answered: Oct 19, 2017Penny, do you have a homes dotcom account you can login to? If not, send an email to the service dept; but your MLS should update if you have correctly updated in MLS.Answered: Oct 19, 2017In answer to: How much is my 2 bedroom townhome in Gardner, KS worth?Stacey, that is a very subjective question. You need to contact a qualified and reputable agent to give you a home analysis based on your current market; possibly multiple agents.Answered: Oct 19, 2017In answer to: Can you rent a home versus buying it?That depends Marceline. Some owners are willing to rent, or possibly consider a rent to own option. The only way to know is to contact the listing agent and ask. However, be very aware that it is not in the agents best interest to have the seller rent or write up a rent to own contract as they either won't get paid, or won't get paid for years. They will most likely advise their clients to not take the contract. My advice is look for homes listed for rent, or rent to own already. They are willing to look at you as a client.Answered: Oct 19, 2017In answer to: How do I place my ad for my home on Homes.com?Karen If you are an agent, MLS will push live to a multitude of sites including Homes dotcom. If you are not an agent, then you have to go to each site independently that you want your FSBO listing to show up on. Some sites allow FSBO listings, some do not.Answered: Oct 19, 2017As a Veteran who was also a VA Loan specialist before moving to Real Estate Sales, be very aware that every bank is different. Going under 620 is not an issue for VA Lenders that really care about the Veteran. Get with a qualified reputable agent in your area that can guide to a local lender that works with Vets. Having the relationship based business will be worth it.Answered: Oct 19, 2017The credit scores will not preclude you from getting the FHA loan. You also will qualify for a conventional loan with those scores. However, each bank will have different views on your accounts in collections, based on how much, and what type. You need to start working with a qualified agent who can help guide you to the right lender, and be able to have several options for lenders for you.Answered: Oct 19, 2017Maria A few questions to help clarify. Is the loan behind $38,000, or is that was is left on the loan to pay it off? What is owed, what is the approximate value? If there is equity you can list with a qualified agent lower than market value to sell fast. You could work with a cash investor to sell fast as-is. If you owe more than it is worth you can negotiate with the bank for a short sale. Having a qualified agent is even more important if you go this route. Regardless, you need to open up an open dialog with the bank and keep them in the loop on everything.Answered: Oct 19, 2017The technical answer is no, you may not as you are not licensed in your state, and Maryland requires you to be licensed to get a commission. However, negotiating in advance with an agent for a reduced commission if you bring the buyer to the table is always possible. Different Brokers negotiate this differently.Answered: Oct 19, 2017Johnnie 1st you need to determine if the BK made it onto your credit report. In today's day and age, it is rare that it doesn't but it still happens. Also, you can buy a home through many different options other than a standard home loan. There are sellers that will do owner carry, there are independent lenders, and even banks or credit unions that will do an in-house loan. You need to do some research with a qualified and knowledgeable Real Estate Consultant in your area that has a real grasp on who these professionals are in your area. If you cannot go one of the lender routes you could still look at homes available for owner financing if you need to buy asap.
