More about Kandi
Kandi Luensmann didn’t start out in the real estate business, but once she found her passion she hit the ground running and hasn’t looked back. Before beginning her adventure in real estate, she was a pharmaceutical sales representative and a chemistry teacher at Gatesville High School. Since getting her real estate license, she has been a multi-million dollar producer each year. A 2014 GRI graduate and a 2016 graduate of the Texas REALTORS® Leadership Program, she is on top of current trends and is always looking for new and innovative ways to market. As she believes it is important to give back to her profession, Kandi is the 2019 President Elect for the Fort Hood Area Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors and was recently appointed to serve on the 2019 Texas Association of REALTORS® Risk Reduction Committee and the Professional Standards Review Committee.
Kandi is also actively involved in her community; she is a founding member of the Coryell County Area Go Texan scholarship committee, serves on the Coryell County A&M Club Board of Directors and is a Director on the Coryell County Economic Development Board. Kandi is a 1996 graduate of Texas A&M University and is a huge fan of Aggie football. When not on the phone with a client, her hobbies include spending time outdoors, reading, watching her kids play sports and attending stock shows with family. Kandi is married to Brian and they have two children, Braden and Hailey.

Kandi listed our property on East Main in Gatesville, TX. in 2014 after it had been on the market for over a year by another realtor. She was very likeable which made me feel that I could work with her and that she would be successful. She is intelligent and does her job very well because she is a professional at what she does. We felt that she was doing her utmost to sell the property, she knew investors of whom she contacted right away and showed the property. Since I live in Temple she took care of finding a business to survey the property. She understands all the legal responsibilities required, so I felt that everything was being cared for by the laws. She communicated with me via email which was very convenient and was very quick to respond to all of my questions, etc. I would recommend Kandi to anyone who needs a top notch realtor.
