Sold a home in 2014.
We recently sold our home with Kate. We absolutely loved working with her from the minute we met her! I feel that because of Kate's local knowledge we were able to list at a reasonable price, and we received an offer and finished the sale very quickly. Although the process is stressful, Kate repeatedly told me not to stress, that was her job. I feel like we came out of this experience with a friend, not just a future realtor. Though, we do plan to move again in a few years, Kate WILL be our first call! Thanks for everything, Kate!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Des Moines, IA.
I had NO knowledge of the home-buying process and only bad experiences with other realtors and lenders in the past. My mom encouraged me to go to Kate Carlson as our families were already aquainted (I worked with her husband). My mom actually contacted Kate without my knowledge and asked her if she could help me find a home. Kate did a wonderful job of both calming my fears of the home-buying process and calming my nerves from my mother butting into my life! We quickly found a house that I loved and did a great job of pointing out the small details/necessities to a house that one may overlook during the walk-through. She kept in mind all the amenities I was looking for in all the houses we toured and never overwhelmed me with options that she knew wouldn't work for me. She made the process simple and easy, even finding me a wonderful lender to work with! She kept in constant contact and never mislead me on anything. When I told others how quick and easy it was working with Kate they couldn't believe it. I would definetly recommend her to anyone, especially a first-time home buyer like myself.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $175K in Somerset, Des Moines, IA.
Kate helped us buy and sell a home around 8 years ago. She worked hard to find exactly what we wanted. She also helped us when we recently considered selling & buying again and was totally supportive when we ultimately decided to refinance instead. We consider her a friend and still keep in touch.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Pleasant Hill, IA.
Kate was wonderful to work with when my husband and I found our new home. It was in foreclosure so it was a little more challenging. Kate was very patient and was very knowledgable about the process and got us through it. When selling our old home Kate was wonderful as well. She helped us negotiate a fair price that my husband and I were both comfortable with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $200K in Altoona, IA.
Kate is wonderful. She gets to know you and your family individually, and really tries to understand what you are looking for and needing. She's quick to respond and is excellent with keeping you informed throughout the process. She is flexible and always tries to be accomodating to your schedule.

Bought a home in 2012.
My husband and I felt very comfortable with Kate. She was helpful, patient, knowledgable, and attentive to finding the home we wanted and needed to be in! She made our experience with buying our first home great!

Bought a Condo home in 2012 in West Des Moines, IA.
Of the 6 realtors I death with buying my home I think Kate was by far the best! I have already referred her to several of my friends. I would use her again in a heart beat and when I sell this home she will be the one I call. Felt like I was dealing with a friend instead of a stuffy realtor only looking to make a sale. Grade A in my book!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Altoona, IA.
Kate helped sell a home. She gave us advice to prepare our home such as decluttering and options to upgrade. She was attentive to details and helped lay out photographs. She held a quick open house and it sold in three weeks.

Kate helped us buy a new home. This was her strength and she helped us see the house and expedite the sale with little assistance from the seller's realtor. We believe we would not have our house today without Kate. She was responsive to questions and stayed on top of issues. She made herself available with our unusual schedule.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Des Moines, IA.
she was very friendly and knowledgeable during the purchase of our home. she was very detailed. Being a first timer looking for a home she was very helpful about what things we need look at for and what to stay away from. She also made sure we understood everything she was explaining. This was a huge decision to be a first time home buyer and she made it enjoyable.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $300K in West Des Moines, IA.
Kate was very helpful though the entire process of selling our existing home and finding a new one. She was able to help us find the right house in a short amount of time after she received an offer on our existing house. We would use Kate again if the future need arises.
