I just wanted to say Ann was a awesome realtor. My husband and I were in a certain situation where we needed to sell our house fast and Ann made it happen in just a few months. She's a straight up type of person and tells you how it is but that plus her helpful tips sold our house quick and easy. If I had a question about anything I was able to text, call or email her any day and at any time I needed to. And trust me I emailed ALOT.lol (our first time selling a house) I will definitely tell all our family and friends if they are ever looking for a good and dependable realtor. We even heard about Ann through a relative and even they said she was awesome. #TeamAnnKellogg ??
As, first time buyers, Ann was very helpful throughout the home buying process! We had a different transaction than normal. The home we wanted to purchase was for sale by owner which made things a bit more complicated, but Ann walked my husband and I through each step and made us feel very comfortable about the process. Another plus, was I was able to text, call, and email her day or night with any questions I had and she would respond immediately.

Ann was my realtor while looking for a property to buy in the Des Moines, IA area. She was knowledgeble about the area, very friendly, and very professional. Within a few weeks I found the perfect place to buy with Ann's help. I would use Ann as my realtor in the future and would recommend her for any of your real estate needs.

Ann represented us both in the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home. She is an excellent negotiator, willing to go the extra mile and to "think outside the box". Ann responds very quickly to emails, phone calls, and texts - this is so important! (Even at 1 a.m. once!) She is an excellent communicator. She also has an excellent grasp of all the details that need to come together to make the sale go smoothly. As a full-time-plus real estate agent, she is a true professional.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in West Des Moines, IA.
We were very happy we found Ann to help us navigate the western area of Des Moines. We are from out of town and looking for a second home and only able to come for a couple days to look around. After having a couple conversations and email connections, we arrived to meet Ann ready with a dozen or so properties for us to view. Ann provided terrific background on each we looked at and it was quite evident she had our best interests in mind. We found Ann to have great balance of professionalism and personal connection with us that put us at ease expressing our pros and cons of each property as the day went on. We were able to find what we were looking for and we worked on an offer on our drive home, eventually receiving an accepted offer by the time we arrived home. Ann was always very responsive and always available to answer our questions quickly. We highly recommend Ann and will stay in touch with her as we spend more time in the area over the coming years.
Ann was an absolute pleasure to work with both as my listing agent and as the negotiator for my purchase. She worked hard around my schedule and was often a step or two ahead of me when dealing with my lender. She made both the selling and purchasing processes as least stressful as possible. I have only worked with 2 other realtors prior to Ann and really dreaded the whole process, but Ann proved that my past dealings were difficult because of only adequate agents. On the contrary, Ann is outstanding! I was we'll informed and have no doubt my best interests were in her every action. I would recommend Ann Kellogg to my family and closest friends; that is my greatest compliment.

Ann was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and considerate when helping us search for our first home. Going into it with a small budget made things difficult, but she hung in there with us and eventually we found a house that is perfect for us. She was a joy to work with, and always made time for us. She is phenomenal and we will definitely be recommending her to other home buyers in the area.

We chose Ann to be our buyer's agent based on her many positive reviews, and as first time home buyers, we were not disappointed! She definitely knows her stuff. She's professional, friendly, personable, determined, hard-working, and devoted. She's also well-known in the Des Moines community and will fight for you. We would recommend her for anyone looking for a house.
