Des Moines REALTOR® Rodney Hillebo believes that clear and open communication, active listening, responsiveness, and patience are the keys to a successful real estate transaction.

In order to assure that these objectives are met, he never hands his clients off to an assistant, but manages every aspect of their purchase or sale from start to finish. He has a team of preferred partners that he offers to assist in everything from staging a home, to landscaping, to lending. Taking his clients' trust to heart, he makes sure they are treated with respect, honesty, and integrity throughout the process.

Rodney's previous careers gave him the perfect foundation for a career in real estate. After earning a BA in Marketing from ISU in 1994, he became the marketing coordinator for Iowa's leading electrical distributor, where he stayed for several years. Then he moved into the mortgage industry, working both in marketing and loan processing.

Thus, he not only has the expertise to marketing his listings well, he has the experience and knowledge to guide his buyers through the loan process, anticipating and clearing issues before they become problems.

After moving from lending to real estate sales in 2005, Rodney devoted himself to learning all he could to assist his clients. He now holds designations such as Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI). He's also a designated New Home Specialist, and has acted as project manager for several new construction communities.

Working with clients in all price categories and all walks of life, he finds it exciting to be a part of the process when clients are entering the next phase of their lives – be they first time home buyers, executives moving up the corporate ladder, or empty nesters looking for a home that suits a new lifestyle.

His hobbies include fishing, playing tennis, playing card games, and traveling. He and his partner of 12 years, Christopher Sayavongchanh, also enjoy taking walks around Gray's Lake and spending time with their large families and their Boston Terrier, Lettie.

When you're looking for a Des Moines Metro area REALTOR® who will be attentive and responsive to your needs, look to Rodney Hillebo. You'll soon understand why so many satisfied buyers and sellers say they'd never choose anyone else.

Ratings & Reviews

Rodney is Wonderful! I would recommend him to anyone. He was patient and very understanding with my husband and I. We were making a move from st. Louis and he made the home buying process easy. My husband and I were limited with time to find a home and Rodney made time for us no questions asked. Thanks Rodney!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Ankeny, IA.

It was a pleasure to work with Rodney. We were moving from out of state (from CA to IA) so we had logistical challenges in terms of our limited time and availability. Rodney made the process easy for us and found us the ideal home at exactly our target price. He was always immediately responsive and continued to be after the sale was completed to help us with questions. We would definitely recommend Rodney to family, friends, and anyone looking to buy a home in IA.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Southwestern Hills, Des Moines, IA.

I already had a home in mind when I contacted Rodney, but he helped me with the entire purchasing process and made sure that I understood every step of the way as well as looking out for my best interests.
