Hello, I’m Tim Reeder. I have almost 20 years of experience assisting old-home lovers with their real-estate needs. My Omaha home was a Queen Anne that my husband and I restored over about a decade. Now we’re restoring a mid-century dream.
I have focused on listing old homes in Omaha. I have a unique perspective on marketing these beautiful homes. I also know the unique pitfalls that can present in the sale of an old home, and I know how to navigate those through to a successful and happy closing.
Hey y’all. I’m Tommy Boatright and I love old homes. Well, actually, I love all homes, but my heart does beat faster in a home that’s older than I am — and that’s pretty darn old.
Growing up on my family’s farm in Southern Georgia, I spent many an afternoon on the front porch of my great grandmother’s farm house. To this day, I can’t see painted beadboard ceilings and not think of her…one reason I now have it on the ceiling of my kitchen.
I have been fortunate to restore four older and historic homes. Seeing potential is a gift of mine. My husband and I live in Council Bluff, Iowa in an 1895 Prairie Style Four Square. We’ve been able to modernize the home while still being respectful of it’s rich heritage.
Licensed in both Nebraska and Iowa, I have helped over 100 families reach their real estate goals of either selling or buying their home. And my philosophy is simple — provide you with such excellent service and communication that you refer me to your family & friends for all their real estate needs.
Now…Let’s Get Ready To Move!™
Hi there, I’m Erin. I love history and old houses, and I’m fortunate to have been able to turn my hobby into a career in real estate.
I grew up in Boulder, Colorado, in an early 1970s ranch house. We spent our summers at my grandparents’ ranch in western Nebraska, where my family is originally from. My upbringing was a milieu of artistic culture and breathtaking natural beauty in Boulder, a hint of urban influence in Denver, and rural, infinite sky in the Nebraska sandhills. These places are imbued with the history of westward expansion, often harsh and regrettable, but infusing generations with stoicism and introspection and a kind of toughness westerns bastardize and cowboy poetry highlights. I attribute my deep love of history, natural beauty, and the dwellings we chose to call home to these areas and to my parents and grandparents. The past impacts our current physical locations and shapes how we live our lives.
My favorite architect is Frank Lloyd Wright (yeah, me and everyone else). Wright’s goal of finding the perfection of integrating a home into the surrounding nature, maximizing the beauty of both in the integration really speaks to my aesthetic. It’s no surprise, I suppose, that a prairie upbringing would lead to an appreciation of the Prairie School. I love clean and simple lines which still maintain a warmth and connection to organic forms.
I currently live in a Colonial Revival home in Dundee. My husband and I lived in Lincoln for many years before moving to Omaha. I knew I wanted to live in an old home when we moved. My preference was a Craftsman or Prairie School home, but his was Colonial Revival. As luck would have it, we found a Colonial Revival with a Craftsman feel in the shape of the front columns and interior. We moved to Omaha so my husband could start work at his law firm. At the time I was also working as an attorney. While the law was fulfilling in some respects, I started thinking about other careers that might be more fulfilling and would afford more time with my son. I met with Tim, who helped us find our wonderful old home, and I ultimately decided a switch to real estate would be a good fit.
I focus my real estate business on older homes now, side-by-side with Tim. I want every buyer I work with to have the feeling I did when we first walked in what would become our place in Dundee. Many buyers want an old home with character. It’s a great dream, but one made easier to achieve smartly by working with a knowledgeable professional who knows how to navigate historic properties and old homes. I simply love it when I can help an old home and new owner connect. The house will be loved, the owner will have a beautiful home to display, and I have made a lifetime connection with both owner and home.
I realize this all sounds a little bit cheesy. I am not embarrassed by the connection I feel to the past, and the strong feelings the connection evokes. What more personal link to the past than a family home to carry forward into the future?
Hi, I’m Avi, and no, it’s not short for anything. I am the son of an architect/professor of architecture-turned-attorney, and our family moved often, usually remodeling our ‘new’ home, doing the majority of the work ourselves. As a result, I learned a lot about how houses are constructed, and learned to appreciate the craftsmanship found in older homes.
Of the houses I have lived in, my favorite was a 25 x 27 foot carriage house, behind the family’s Victorian row house in San Francisco. We completely gutted it, rewired it, replumbed it, etc., all while my older brother and I lived there (we were 18 and 19 at the time). We even pulled up the three inch pine tongue and groove flooring from one side of the house and moved it to the other side. We built all the kitchen cabinetry, added a huge greenhouse window at the back of the house in the kitchen area, and opened up the ceiling on the ‘living room’ side of the house. We added a franklin stove for heat. It was a ton of work but an amazing learning experience. I still miss that place, after more than 25 years.
I have a very eclectic background. I have a BFA from The San Francisco Art Institute, where I was a photography major, as well as a law degree. I have worked as an Antique Jukebox Mechanic, a Glass Blower’s Assistant, a Motorcycle Mechanic, an Attorney, and I have spent many years doing technical support for various software companies.
In 2013 I got my Real Estate license, and started working with Tim. My role was to help with listings, and marketing, which is essentially my role still, with the addition of house photography, my favorite part of the job. When I reminded Tim about my photography background we decided it was time for me to brush off the old photography skills. Tim helped me get set up with equipment and software, and I did some intensive research and testing to figure out how to get quality results. I like to think that over the years, with experience, better equipment, and more sophisticated software, I have the skills to to make houses look their best. If you choose our team to help you sell your home, I will do my best to make your house shine.

Hello, I’m Kelli Mickeliunas, and I’m the best realtor you’ll ever work with!
I moved to Omaha from California in 1999. I met my husband a few years later, and we were married in 2001. When my husband saw how much I loved old houses, he new I wouldn’t be happy in anything else. We bought a fantastic old home in Midtown Omaha, and we couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
My love of old houses made me rethink my life’s direction, and at the tender age of 47, I finally knew what I wanted to be when I grew up: a Realtor! It took a whole lot of work and dedication, but I was determined to be the best Realtor I could be, but more importantly, the Realtor that my clients needed.
It’s been more than a decade since I became a Realtor, and my priorities haven’t changed. I continue to give my clients superior service, and most importantly, to listen to them and deliver what they need. I’ve been licensed in Nebraska and Iowa for over ten years. My experience and expertise will turn your real estate dreams into reality.
I’m excited to be part of Old Omaha Vintage Real Estate Team. I love to introduce buyers to the joy of historic homes. To live in one of these amazing places, is to become part of a living history. It simply can’t be compared to any other housing option. If you’ve never lived in great old house, you don’t know what you’re missing!
My mission statement is simple: to impact and improve the lives of others, and sell a few homes along the way!
