Tell Us Your Story

Betsy was fantastic to work with.

She found the perfect place for us and made the process super seamless, she went above and beyond throughout the entire process. She is great to work with in general, but if you are looking for someone that has top tier knowledge of horse properties, she's your gal! Plus, she was super fun to work with.

Chasyn Chamberlain

I would 100% recommend Betsy Woodruff to any one of my family or friends.

As a first time home buyer, she was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. She took the time to explain the process and walk me through each stage of the stressful journey. Even with a very competitive market, she was still able to land me the perfect house that I could not be more excited about. She is a genuinely kind and caring person and is extremely knowledgeable. I felt comfortable asking her any question I imagined and she always had an answer for me. I know when I look to move again I will be contacting Betsy for help!

Kerissa Harris

Betsy Woodruff sold 3 tracts of land for my family consisting of 40, 105 and 125 acre tracts.

She did a great job coaching us to divide into tracts that would match the market needs in our area of Boone County. One of the tracts included an older home. Her firm did an excellent job of marketing , including High quality drone pictures and videos. Her firms use of technology allowed my family (consisting of 4 owners in 3 different states) to do most paperwork online. Would highly recommend Nexthome Paradigm to a buyer or seller! She is cheerful, energetic and a great communicator. She was a good listener, patient and understanding. Fun to work with! Has lots of experience and took care of all the little details for us. Will use her for any future buying or selling in mid Missouri.

Lee Lohman

We bought a house with Betsy’s help 2 years ago.

It was stressful let me tell you. We looked at 50 houses! She was so patient with us. We finally picked a house and she was great! Then 2 years later we decided to sell and move again. We called Betsy and she was awesome yet again. The house sold in 24 hours!! She was again very patient with us. Now we are never moving again, but if we did , I’d call Betsy. Lol she may not want to answer, but I’d call her!

Michele phillips (Client )

I cannot imagine using any Realtor besides Betsy Woodruff.

Betsy was extremely attentive and supportive throughout the entire process of finding and buying our first home. If there was a hiccup, she was working hard to present us our options and answer all of our questions. She made the entire process enjoyable and smooth. Her recommendations were top notch and her knowledge proved we chose the right realtor. I highly recommend Betsy and her associates, as I have never met someone who works so hard for you.

Lacie Ogden

The Woodruffs were very patient and quick to respond through the whole process.

We had a bit of a unique circumstance that required a lot of additional help that was quickly and efficiently worked through. I felt well informed and landed a great house!

Morgan Case

Being a first time home buyer it is so important to have a realtor who learns about what we want and guide you through the process.

Betsy was that realtor for us. We had to buy a house a lot quicker than we planned. We met Betsy at a home she sold and knew right away we would want her to help us buy our first home. Betsy does a magnificent job in asking us what we are wanting in house and finding houses within the neighborhood we wanted to be in along with our price range. Betsy guided us the whole way from submitting an offer to signing the contract to closing. We know we would not have found our home without her. Betsy is that absolute best and she truly cares for her clients. If you are looking to buy or sale go see Betsy!

Erin morrison

The quality of presentation and ability to get our home in front of potential buyers was awesome.

Betsy walked us through every step from preparing the house for showings to final closing, and was a voice of reason through the whole process. Her approach to every step made the selling of our home as easy as possible.

Steve Sachs (Contractor)

My wife and I absolutely love Betsy, there are too many things to list of how well she took care of us through our months of searching for the perfect home.

She brought to the table so many unique skills as a Realtor, and with this being the purchase of our sixth home we have never had a Realtor put so much time and effort into our home finding/purchasing experience. From start to finish and even after purchase she has helped us out in so many ways. She is an excellent Realtor and I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

Kevin Lawson

Betsy Woodruff searched endlessly for the home we wanted over the past year.

We saw many places that were almost right, and Betsy was always patient about taking us to see them repeatedly, talking through the pros/cons/etc. When the perfect place popped up, we jumped on it and Betsy facilitated everything for the purchase/closing and it all went through very smoothly. I cannot recommend Betsy enough to buyers looking for homes.

Sarah H

Betsy was our agent for the sale of our farm and the purchase of another property.

She is so well organized, we knew each step ahead of time in our sale, so there were no surprises. She helped us look for another smaller property understanding how hard it was to leave the farm after 41 years. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate transactions. She explained everything completely. We felt very secure in having her as our agent. We really appreciated the ability to get hold of her any day of the week. We would highly recommend her. She is straight forward and great to be around, you always feel like you are number one to her.

Phil Smith

Betsy was SO GREAT!

I felt absolutely comfortable the entire time, never once did I worry about anything because she had it all under control. I could tell that she understood exactly what I wanted, what I didn't want, and fought for me the whole way! SO grateful for her and Katherine for being able to get me in my first home :)

Madison Boyken

If you want a good realtor you should have no problem finding one.

Because there’s plenty out there. If you want a great realtor you’ll have to look a little harder. If you want the absolute best of the best realtor you have but one option. That option is Betsy. From point a to b she’ll be there protecting your best interest and guiding you in the right direction on what is going to be one of the biggest decisions that you’ll ever make. I recommend Betsy without any doubt, hesitation, or reservation.

Dalton Isgrig (Client )

We just completed our second transaction as sellers with Betsy and Katherine.

They excel at communication, detail and efficiency. Both the properties we sold were somewhat unique and Betsy put together wonderful marketing strategies that generated lots of attention and multiple offers. The best parts of working with the Woodruff Team are their professionalism, integrity and enthusiasm. Betsy also has a remarkable personal touch that extends beyond the business relationship. I recommend Betsy highly!

Julie Estabrooks

We chose Betsy to represent us in selling our home because she sold our neighbors house in less than 24 hours and boy are we glad we did!

We couldn't have asked for a more professional, kind, thorough realtor! She returned our phone calls/text in a timely manner. She was very knowledgeable and thorough, guiding us the whole way making what is a stressful process much less stressful. Bottom line: she was wonderful!

Barbie Sachs (physical therapist)

I sold another new home that I built and as always Betsy and her staff did an excellent job!

They are the most organized and detail conscience realtors that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I have been in Building Business for 24 years so that is saying a lot! Thanks Betsy Woodruff! Sam Boyce Boyce Custom Homes

Sam Boyce (Owner, Boyce Custom Homes)

Betsy Woodruff is truly the best possible agent we could have had.

She surpassed every expectation. Her professionalism, at every turn, amazed us! If you want the job done right, getting the most possible from a true professional, she's your gal! So that you know, we had never met Betsy prior to listing our home. She had sold a few in our neighborhood, however, so we decided to give her a try! Her years of experience in marketing and sales and her sweet and lively personality will carry you far! The fact that she did so much preliminary work prior to our listing going live paid off! We sold our home full price and in a mere 2 weeks closed the deal! You will never be sorry engaging the help of Betsy Woodruff, no matter the transaction!

Debi Enyeart

Betsy was amazing throughout the entire home sale process.

She is well versed in the market area and what it will take to sell your home. Her marketing methods are top notch and really focus on the personal story of your home and what will make it so special to the next owner. She is a great communicator and kept us informed throughout the entire process. Best in the business for sure!

Travis Hargrove

I cannot say enough about Betsy.

She was truly a god sent in the process of selling our home! We had moved out of state, and so we were unable to really be present for anything (from open houses to the final push in getting the house ready for closing), and Betsy really just took care of everything! And despite being across the country from us, she was in CONSTANT contact; reassuring us on our decisions, explaining in great detail the entire process, and ALWAYS accessible whenever we had a question. I feel certain in saying that the reason our house sold as quickly as it did, (and for asking price!) is because of Betsy. My only compliant is that I can't have her help us with our real estate needs in the state we are in now! She is not only an incredible real estate professional, but a wonderful person and such a blessing! Thank you Betsy!

Amanda Randolph (Associate Director Compliance)

Betsy was amazing from start to finish.

I felt like I was in trustworthy, knowledgeable hands. Our situation was unique seeing as my husband had relocated and I was left to sell the house. Betsy was able to navigate our situation not only effectively but she was so accommodating to help us throughout the process. Her professional expertise were so helpful and we were able to photograph, list, and get under contract in less than 3 days. Her expertise were a lifesaver for us in this process and she was always able to answer questions day in and day out. She is a miracle worker and I cannot say enough great things about her and our experience.

Rebecca Shearouse (Digital Marketing Manger)

Betsy was fantastic, we could not have asked for a better experience.

We were new to the Columbia area from St. Louis and had no idea where to look. Betsy was referred to us by a friend of my husbands and we really could not have asked for a better realtor. I spoke to Betsy on the phone several times before we ever met to let her know what we were looking for and she had several properties for us to look at for our first viewings. By the time we actually met in person it was like we were old friends. The paperwork process was super easy through DocuSign, so no actual paperwork going back and forth. All In all, a great experience.

Amy Skipton

With a new baby quickly on the way, we decided to lighten our load and sell our income property.

We turned to Betsy and knew that we were in great hands. She went above and beyond to help guide us in how to best prepare the house for listing to get the best return on our investment, even calling in professional reinforcements, like plumbers and landscapers, when we were unavailable to follow through. With her guidance, we were able to list our house and give birth on the same day! While we recovered, we watched as showings and offers rolled in, and were under contract by the time we brought our little one home. During such a stressful time, there's nobody else that we would have trusted!

Amanda Iman

Our experience with Betsy was outstanding.

She was essential in helping us sell our family farm. Throughout the process of selling three separate parcels, she was professional, hard-working, and attentive. She was always on top of things and always kept us informed. Her knowledge, patience, and persistence were remarkable as she helped negotiate us through three sometimes difficult sales. We would not hesitate to call on her again for her expertise in handling any real estate transactions.

Kirk Lohman

Betsy was amazing throughout the entire process, from our initial visit about the sale of our home and through final closing.

Her ideas and attention to detail and quality in marketing the home, including professional staging and photographs made a huge difference from prior experiences. She made sure the product she was selling was second to none. She was always reachable and worked into the night to get the deal done. I highly recommend Betsy for all of your real estate transaction needs!

Jessica Hargrove

Working with Betsy and Paradigm far exceeded my expectations.

She helped me sell a home and horse farm very dear to me and was so helpful, wise, fun, conscientious, and so very knowledgeable. There wasn't a thing that came up that she didn't have an answer for. Betsy went above and beyond. There was a lot to deal with and many unexpected issues with my unique property and she solved every problem with a smile on her face, without hesitation. Selling a property can be very daunting and confusing but Betsy removed that from the equation and made the experience actually quite pleasant. I would recommend her highly and I would certainly use her again. Catherine

catherine hotchkiss

During one of the hardest times in history to buy a house Betsy was able to not only find us one but find us one that checked all of our boxes and met all of our needs.

She went above and beyond! Late night calls, last minute showings, consistent follow up, and her personal touch meant the world to our family. We were new to the area and knew nobody. She made us feel welcome to the area, helped find a vet in an emergency situation, she is a an amazing person and an astounding realtor!

Tammy Haskin

My daughter and I began our journey looking for a home in the Columbia Area after she was accepted in to Stephens College .

We are from out of state and really needed to rely on a local Columbia Real Estate Agent. I was looking for a safe affordable property my daughter could call home for years to come. Betsy was introduced to us and I could tell she was the real estate professional for us. Betsy's dynamic personable style and incredible knowledge base was amazing. Betsy's tireless energy and determination to find us the right home based on the criteria we provided her was spot on. If you are looking for a Real Estate professional to help you through the home searching and buying process you won't find anyone better than Betsy Woodruff. We were 100% satisfied and blessed to have Betsy work with us through our home buying process.

Kelly R Harris

I had an excellent experience with Betsy.

I appreciated her data analysis, discussion of how she gathered data and what it meant. The presentation made me feel involved and confident about our approach to the sell of my home and the sale price. My house was particularly difficult to price due to the lack of comps in my area. Listing my house was a nerve racking experience for me but, Betsy kept me informed every step of the way. I always received a timely answer when I had a question. Betsy was so understanding of my concerns, well educated and strategic about the market. I highly recommend her.

Tamara Thomas

Betsy and her team truly break the mold.

They are professional, have great insight into market trends and are so well connected they can resolve any issues quickly. But most of all, they hustle. Long hours, great communication, and dedication that goes above and beyond. They have earned my respect.

Jason Robertson

Betsy was fabulous.

She came in knowing what the market was like in my area, she set reasonable expectations and gave us recommendations to make the house more attractive to prospective buyers. She was also there through the whole process, always available with experience driven ideas and recommendations. We could not possibly be more satisfied with Betsy as our selling agent!

George Shearouse (Seller)

Betsy and her team where with me the whole time, guiding me and reminding me that everything will be ok and not to stress or worry about things.

She has great communication and does updates without even asking. She goes above and beyond, helping me find a handy man and roofer to fix things on existing house and the new one. She even got my puppers a gift to help them transition to the new house. Betsy is honest and will give her an opinion on houses you look at and boy we looked a few I was glad we agreed on. She understood my needs and wants in the new house I was looking for. She is the best!!

Lisa Bergeson (registered nurse)

Betsy did an amazing job helping us find the perfect home, in a perfect location.

She was incredibly patient, detailed, and prompt with our every need. We are so thankful to have met her and have her help us in our home search.

Stacee Collier and Michael LaFrieda (COO)

Betsy helped us purchase a house.

Her knowledge combined with her experience and competence gave me peace of mind throughout our search. Her down to earth and candid communication style was just what we needed to make our experience a great one. I would choose her again if we ever needed to move. Highly recommend her.

Amy Armstrong

Betsy is very professional and personable.

Would give her more than a 5 star rating if that was possible. Highly recommend.

Ruth Graves

Betsy is amazing!

She helped us so much. She knew exactly what we were looking for and devoted a lot of time to us! She was available at all hours and was so quick to get showings set up! She was great and very knowledgeable about issues that houses had or if schools were not good! I highly recommend Betsy for all your reality needs!!
