About Us

Ron Herms, ABR, AHWD, CRS, CSP, E-PRO, GRI, SFR, and former QSC and CLHMS:

I have been an active member of the Lincoln, NE real-estate community for over 20 years and I've worked for Home Real Estate, Woods Bros. Realty, Re/Max, and Lincoln First Realty over the course of my career.  I'm currently working with Sellstate Performance Realty to help my clients by leveraging their technology focused approach and growing national footprint.

I’m proud to hold a 99.9% satisfaction rating over my 20 year career, and nearly every client I’ve worked with has provided me with high praise and additional business through referrals. (Thanks to everyone that has!)

As a self-employed individual, my business relies on client satisfaction through my easy-to-do-business with philosophy. I try to make my transactions smooth, and I utilize the latest technologies (Docusign, Custom PDF’s of all documents etc.) to ensure documents get done right, and on time.

I'm a retired Captain of the U.S. Air Force and I have done Mission trips with my Church to Central America and Africa, I am an active member of the Sesostris Shrine, an organization that provides free medical care to children through their children’s hospital network, I also volunteer for the Salvation Army.

I have three grown children and 6 grandchildren that I am very proud of.

Whether you are the owner of a higher-end home or first-time home buyer, I will do whatever it takes to make sure that your questions get answered, that I am accessible to you, and that at the end of the day you feel confident that you had the best professional real-estate representation available.

I look forward to working with you!


Jon Herms – ABR, E-PRO:

I've been working with technology since the 386 and real estate since I was born. Photography, tech life, creative thinking and being the guy you can ask ANYTHING since 1987.

- I'll do what it takes to keep a 100% client satisfaction rate.
- If there's a problem to be solved, expect my help.
- It's not lonely at the top if we get there together.

The big question is: What will I do for you?

BUYERS: I will get you access to every listing in the MLS within 1 hour of it being posted. I don't want you missing out on the home of your dreams simply because of laziness. You will have access to a customized portal with all of the homes fitting your requirements updated hourly. You can save homes you like, reject the ones you don't, and leave comments so that I can help you more effectivley. Simply put, I will do everything possible for you to make the most educated decision possible.

SELLERS: I actively market your home on the internet first. Research shows that over 80% of home buyers start online. So it makes sense that we start there too. I post to over 30 real estate websites including Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, Yahoo Homes etc including print media as well. I want to get you the most money possible, because when we get top dollar, I want you to tell your friends about our success.

If you have questions or would like a real estate consultation you can contact me or Ron at 402.432.0804, 402.432.5554 or Houses@SellingLincoln.com.  There is never charge for any consultation.
