Hear From Our Clients!

Kare Scruffy


Peggy is an outstanding realtor! I never worried about anything through the process because she was always looking out for my best interest. This is my second time working with Peggy... I won’t go with anyone else! Thank you Peggy for holding my hand through it all!

Valeri Thompson


I had such a great experience with Lydia. She was wonderful at helping my navigate buying my fist home. I can’t express enough how her knowledge and follow up help decrease my anxiety. It helped that when I couldn’t be in town to oversee the house, I had someone I trust.

Julie Christensen


Pam Yungblut at Senter was my realtor for buying my very first house.
God blessed me with finding her because we found a gem in the rough that I was able to fix up a bit and then sold 5 years later for more than others in the area were getting.
Listen to her!! Look past fixes like paint or things she says you can fix. My house was purple and I wasn’t sold but it was such a good buy I fell in love even with the purple color that made it unique!
She also referred me to her electrician, house/car insurance, cleaner, etc. and they all are not only used by her, but some of the best, kindest working people I have met.

I had an issue with the water after I moved in and she even took care of that. This woman goes ABOVE and BEYOND.



Judith helped us find the perfect home based on a full wish list! She answered calls and texts timely and met us at a time that worked for us all. So grateful for such an attentive realtor. I highly recommend!!

David Phillips


Awesome Realtor! I’ve been doing business with Senter for over 20 years and they have always gone the extra mile to represent my interests well. Whether it’s Residential or Commercial they are the best in Abilene!

Bobbie Jehle


I’ve bought/sold several properties in my lifetime and working with Doug Berry was by far the best experience. He went above and beyond our expectations, especially since we were buying from outside the area. I highly recommend choosing Doug as your real estate partner.

J Shea Jewelers


Professional, courteous & efficient are just some of the words to describe Abilene's Real Estate leaders for as long as I can remember. Consider it sold if you list with Senter.

Martha Mosley


Kam kept me informed, actively worked the listing, explained anything I didn't understand, and handled questions and concerns promptly. Kam was great handling the complexities of working with an out of state seller.

Victor Fowler


Leonard worked very hard for us from day one. Because we had to travel from out of town he would arrange a day full of house viewings based on what we wanted to see and few of his recommendations. He was always professional, courteous, and timely. He chauffeured us around Abilene pointing out places of interest while driving from house to house. He never pressured us into buying, and often provided valuable advice. When we found the house that we couldn't live without, he negotiated masterfully with our best interest in mind. I highly recommend Mr. Leonard Davis to anyone in the Abilene area interested in buying a home. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

Peggy Klostermann


Peggy Manning was amazing to work with. She was super professional and thorough. We highly recommend her.
