Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Urbandale, IA.
Rick responded very fast and was a very helpful guide through the purchasing process. There were some minor repairs needed on the house that were successfully negotiated and made before purchase. Closing went smoothly and Rick was willing to help even after the fact when questions arose.

We were a very picky couple when it came to looking for a house to fit our needs. Rick was fantastic to work with, he was always willing to take us through houses of our choosing and was always quick to respond to our requests. Once we did find the perfect house for us he worked very hard to sell our house quickly and at a great price.

As a first-time home buyer, I was really not sure what to expect about the buying process, but Rick Bratrud made it easy.He is very customer focused and knowledgeable about real estate. He took great care in all the paperwork and negotiation and was a great advocate for us. Most important, he helped us succeed in all our goals to purchase a new home with all the criteria we were looking for.
We would work with Rick again in a heartbeat - but we are so happy with our new home that won't be for a long time! If you are trying to find a good agent, look no further. - Amra A.

Rick was very helpful through the process of buying my first home. Everything was new to me and he was able to walk me through it step by step and help me understand everything. I am very thankful to have him on my side. He was very knowledgable of not only the process, but of the area and properties in general. He knew I was in a hurry to move and was able to help me find the perfect place and move in very quickly. I will definitely use Rick in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a property!

This was my first home buying experience and Rick made it very easy for me to get exactly what I wanted. I already had a few houses picked out and Rick was very good about pointing things out that were helpful in making my decision. He was never too pushy, and was always available when I had a question or concern. He made sure that I got a great deal on my first home, and I would highly recommend him to any buyer.
My wife and I have moved sevaral times in the last few years and have worked with some good agents but even so we were impressed with Rick. He was extremely helpful in our new home search. His knowledge of home construction is one of the things that sets him apart. He was not at all pushy or impatient (we had a long list of houses to look at), he was very responsive, and overall very easy to work with. He helped us convert a list of wants into ownership of the right house in the right neighborhood at a good price and without a lot of stress getting through the process.

I would definitely recommend Rick to any one looking to buy or sell!

My husband and I just purchased our first home. We are so excited to be getting settled in. It was such an enjoyable experience, we definitely have Rick to thank for that! He was flexible working with our schedules to view homes, and he was always available to answer questions. He provided us with honest answers, while helping to smoothly guide us through the buying process. Rick is personable, a great resource of knowledge, and a true professional. I will recommend Rick Bratrud to anyone I know looking to buy or sell their home. We will definitely be working with Rick in the future when we are ready for our next home.

Rick Bratrud negotiated our purchase and sale with patience, expert advice and skill. I would recommend him and use him as our agent in the future. He was attentive to our needed showing hours, performed professional open houses and got the results we needed both on our sale and purchase.
