Ratings & Reviews

Galen made our first home buying experience great. He went above and beyond what was asked of him. Every little detail that we asked him to find for us he did and he did it much sooner than was expected. I would recommend him to any one and everyone. He made the buying experience relaxed, enjoyable, and most of all funny. No matter how bad of time we may have had that day, you could guarantee a phone call from him would made your day tons better. If you are looking for a good, professional agent he is your guy. The customer is the first and last thought for him during the day. If you take time to read this please give him a chance, you will not be disappointed. Cameron, I new home owner.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Sheridan Gardens, Des Moines, IA.

When my husband and I started looking for our house Galen was so helpful. He quickly set up walk-throughs even when we did not allow much time. He was great at pointing out pros and cons of the various houses we saw. I really felt that he wanted to help us find and get the house that was best for us. He gave us great advice while negotiating and now we are living in an amazing house!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $20.275M in Nevada, IA.

We were very fortunate to have Galen as our Realtor in searching for our first home. Galen patiently walked us through all steps of the process and provided valuable information as we toured numerous homes. Galen was quick to point out issues that we would have overlooked as we were new to the process. At no time were we pressured to make a purchase. Once we found the home we wanted, Galen was able to negotiate the price well below the seller's asking price saving us a considerable amount of money. Galen provided prompt responses to all of our communications. Once the sale has been finalized, most agents view this as the end of the process, Galen has made it very clear that he is still available to provide us with any resources we may need as we become accustomed to being homeowners. All in all, Galen exceeded all of our expectations as home buyers and we would strongly recommend having Galen as your Realtor.

My wife and i found Galen on the internet and decided to contact him based on several good reviews. He not only met our expectations but he exceeded them in so many ways. He is truly an amazing realtor to work with. He is very honest and wants you to find the best house for your needs, thats in your price range. We are thrilled with the home we purchased and Galen made the whole process so simple. He is more than willing to answer any questions you may have and he is very knowledgeable. We will definitely contact him with any future real estate needs.

Bought a home in 2015.

Dealing with Galen was a great experience. He is a no-pressure guy that really looks out for the buyer. Galen made sure that we were aware of all the details to make a closing go smoothly and we never had any hiccups.

Bought a home in 2014 in Mel-Ray Mobile Home Park, Ankeny, IA 50023.

When I think of "professional and knowledgeable" real estate agent, it has to be Galen Kurth. Galen helped my parent bought their house in Ankeny a few months ago and we couldn't be more happier! His knowledge in construction really puts us at the advantage. He help us look at every details in the house that could potentially cause us money. He's honest about his findings. Galen is a great negotiator! We got the majority of what we ask for in the offer. He definitely went above and beyond for us! Thank you so much! Even after the sale, Galen was there for us to help us with any questions, problems and even help us contact the builder to get problems fix. Now that is service!! If you want professional, honest and knowledgeable and a hard working agent, Galen is the one!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Bondurant, IA.

Galen was above and beyond helpful in the whole process. He looked things up if he didn't know off the top of his head at the drop of a hat. Even after the negotiation was done he still looked into things including how to get snow removal. Even after the house was closed he continues to help me find answers to questions or problems.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in West Des Moines, IA.

With such high ratings your first thoughts probably is this review can not be trusted. Read on to come to your own conclusion. We were in the market to buy a property and received a call from Galen who explained why we needed a Real Estate agent to represent us. We were skeptical but agreed to meet him when we were back in Des Moines. It turned out to be the best choice we could have made. He not only got us the property, that we ended up purchesing, at a price that was a considerable amount below what we would have offered as a starting price, but did something more important. We ended up debating between two properties. And I thought my wife wanted property B so I leaned that way and she thought I also wanted to deal on property B so she also leaned that way. But Galen could tell intuitively that might be what was happening so he suggested why not let him schedule another walk through of property A before we start negotiating. He could have saved himself the extra time involved to do this and just start negotating on property B and that would be where we would have been residing today. Because he took the time to do this we not only purchased the property that we both really wanted, property A, we also got it at a considerably lower price than if I did not have him as our buying realator. We have not used Galen as a seller realator so can not rate him in those shoes but when it comes to selling this property he will be tops on our list of who to contact. Ane if we are buying again, there is no doubt what-so-ever who will be representing our interest. He will go above the call of duty and will take whatever time is required to get us what we truly want. My first thoughts on his initial phone call was that he is only offerring his services so as to collect a fee. Was I mistaken. His first goal is to find the ultimate property for the buyer and then will work hard to get it at the lowest negotiated price. My reason for writing this review is that he treated us more than right and I hope that there will be others that get treated the same. Larry and Connie McCurdy
