      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in West Des Moines, IA.
      If are a first time home buyer. It was not easy to go to market looking for what we want. Being an immigrant compounded the problem. We wanted a home that was suitable to our culture and specific taste. Ou came across as an agent who understood the need and restrictions well. He is a person who gives the right advice and in the right measure. He listens to you very carefully and with a broad smile on face, he will provide his feedback. He would try and reach out to our builder and convince them about our need. Few of Ous most likeable traits are 1) Never say NO 2) Never over commit 3) Listen and observe 4) understand the culture and need 5) respect the differences and most imp (found missing in many agents) Patience. He is a very good person to do business with. Thanks to you Ou, we have a very beautiful house in West Des Moines.  MoreLess

      We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Dallas Center, IA
      Ou seemed to be very understanding when talking to him on the phone. We were very serious about a particular property. Do to a family emergency he sent an assistant that waited for us to arrive at the property and call her to make sure she wouldn't waist her time to drive there. She send us an email which we answered. We never heard back from Ou or the assistant and the property we loved was sold to someone else without us ever having a chance to make an offer. Very unprofessional.  MoreLess

      I am very disappointed and disheartened to receive this review. The family emergency was the death of my 1st cousin. She died tragically at the age of 22 to a sudden illness during Thanksgiving. I would hope that most could understand that I would be unavailable to assist anyone during this time. Not only did I need this time to support my aunt and uncle, but all my cousins and our close friends. Secondly, I had my assistant coordinate the showing and you were able to view this property. we have follow up messages as you stated you potentially wanted to view other properties but never responded to us. None of the messages to me stated that you wanted to make an offer. As you can see by my other reviews, I have a strong track record with my current and past clients. If I did feel that this review was deserved, I would apologize, reach out to you and make the situation right. But in all reality, we did nothing wrong. I hope you do what's right and retract this inaccurate review.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Lower Beaver, Des Moines, IA.
      We were looking for investment property that would serve a dual purpose as a rental for us and a home for our son and his young family. Ou went above and beyond in working with us mostly on weekends since we live 130 miles from the Des Moines area. We really appreciated his knowledge of the Des Moines area and his on-going communication with us through the search and buying process.  MoreLess
