My husband and I are looking to buy a very low end priced house and Lloyd was very attentive and helpful for us. He let us have three showings in one week so both of our parents could look at the house with us. We didn't end up buying the house we looked at with Lloyd, but he offered to work with us in the future if we ever found something in the future, and I definitely intend on contacting him when we do.
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Ames, IA 50011
Called to ask for advice on buying a small parcel of land from someone with more experience than I. Once he realized I wasn't interested in spending a lot of money, he immediately lost interest in giving me advice and became very short with me. I quickly realized the change in attitude and ended the call.

He is one of the best realtor agents!! He has great expertise and a total knowledge of the Ames area and the whole house buying process. He showed us about seven houses. We bought our house slmost without seeing it, Lloyd Flanders knew exactly what we wanted, and he was right!!!

Thank you for your kind words and enthusiasm! With how quickly homes have been selling, I am glad you were able to make time in your busy schedule to look at this home right away. That was the key to you getting the home! I wish you the very best and thank you again for trusting me with your real estate needs.

Lloyd was fantastically helpful to us as first-time homebuyers. He educated us on every step in the process from selecting a home to the actual purchase process. He was prompt, responsive, and personable. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for an agent in the greater Ames area.

Lloyd helped my husband and I buy our first house. He spent time including Saturdays to show us houses in Boone and Ames and gave us advice what could be a good buy and what might be too much for us to tackle. He focused on what we like in difference houses we saw to determine what is a must to have like a big yard for example. He was there during the inspection and the final walk through as well. He has our interest in mind even during the negotiation between the seller and us regarding the sale price and the repair cost. For him it is not about getting the deal done but what house is best for us. Any questions that we have, we email him and he answered us back. He found us a house even faster than we thought it will take us to buy one.We really appreciated. We will recommend him. Thanks Lloyd.

Lloyd assisted my partner and I in selecting a house at very short notice! I was moving down from Canada and needed to view a range of houses during a last minutes 24 hour shopping trip. Lloyd was able to clear his schedule to take us around, explain the neighborhoods, and give me great advice on making an offer. Then, I returned to Canada leaving Lloyd to deal with all of the closing issues at his end. It was great knowing that I could trust him to take care of the details while I was back in Canada, and he helped make the transition to the US very smooth. He was also very understanding in dealing with unusual requests that pertained to obtaining financing in Canada for a purchase in the US. He offered me flexibility that greatly helped in sorting things out while I arranged things like my banking... He was also really friendly, good natured and fun to spend the day with driving around. Heartfelt thanks, Lloyd, for helping settle me into an absolutely stunning new home!

We couldn't have been happier with Lloyd as our agent. He was quick to respond to all of our questions and requests and kept a close eye on a hot market. In fact, we were giving up on Ames and had started looking in Des Moines, but he heard about a house that was coming onto the market in our favorite neighborhood, got us in before it was listed, and helped us negotiate a great deal on the house of our dreams. We just moved in and could not be happier. Lloyd is incredibly friendly and truly a joy to work with - we highly recommend him as an agent!

Lloyd helped me find and purchase my first home. He had impressive knowledge of the surrounding area. He saw things things, that as a first time home buyer, I didn't. He was able to aid me with any questions or concerns I had. Lloyd exceeded my expectations. I have already recommended him to my friends and will be doing with business again. If you are looking for a great Real Estate Agent Lloyd Flanders is the best around, no question.
If you are looking for a helpful, honest realtor to help you either buy or sell a home, I give my highest recommendation to Lloyd Flanders. We recently purchased a home in Ames, Iowa, and Lloyd did everything right in the purchasing process. He is very helpful, not pushy and will help find a home you want, not what someone wants to sell you. We have worked with many realtors over the years, most don't really care about the customer. Lloyd is the exception, he truly will take care of your needs and will make buying or selling the good experience it should be. Look no further, Lloyd Flanders should be your realtor. He was ours and our deal if done!
We were in town for 1 weekend and we needed to see as many homes as possible. Lloyd was happy to help us and work with our schedule. He was very professional and had great follow up. I would recommend Lloyd to anyone looking for a realtor, you won't be disappointed.

Wow, thank you so much for those kind words! I appreciate you reaching out and trusting me with your executive home search in the Ames/Ankeny area. We did see a lot of homes in a very short period time before you had to fly out! Thanks again!!!
