Shane and his team were very professional and responsive throughout the entire selling and buying process. Shane was energetic in selling our house in a timely fashion. He was able to negotiate a good price, and get the most money for our house. This was my first time selling a house and Shane answered my numerous questions in a timely fashion. He was great at being flexible to show us houses with our crazy schedules. Shane was also great at recommending a lender, and inspection personnel. I hope I don't have to move anytime again soon, but would highly recommend him!

Thank you so much for great review. Happy selling went well, now we just close on your new one. Have fun on your trip.
With Shane's vast knowledge in the Polk City area, we were able to sell our home quickly for a good price. He was quick to respond to all of our questions and kept us informed every step of the process.

Thank you for the nice review glad we could move it quick.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Sherman Hill, Des Moines, IA.
I had an awful experience with a different Realtor, trying to short-sell my condo. After languishing for six months without an offer, I was ready to give up. I called Shane as an afterthought, after I had seen an advertisement. He had an offer in 30 days, and then worked with my lender throughout the process. While all short sales are slow, this one went very smoothly, and I never once had a serious concern about any step of the process. Well done!

Thank you so much for the review glad it all worked out.
We have been in business since 2002 building single family residential homes. Shane has been our realtor for over the last year and has done more for our business in that short of time as all the other previous realtors combined. He is very knowledgeable and outspoken.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Polk City, IA.
Shane and his team were great to work with. He is very knowledgable about the market and was always available to answer any question. When it came time to negotiate a selling price on my home with the potential buyers Shane was great, he even helped the buyers get better financing which raised the price that I was able to get. I was very pleased with the professionalism and service. I would definitely use him again (but I won't have to because I now live in a great home).

Shane - Maestro, a Versatile Genius and a Walking Encyclopedia
I happen to meet Shane through Zillow and ended up reading all those reviews to decide him as my Agent. All the reviews, on Zillow, very helpful and very true about Shane, thanks for those who took their time in recommending such a hard working friend to the Real Estate Community
After Choosing Shane as my Agent he introduced me to “Cornerstonehomeia” builders where we collaboratively went on building our first dream Project for next 5 months at “The Woods of Cooper Creek”. We being an Indian family had to make a lot of adjustments to the floor plan and everything. Shane, with his expertise and knowledge, rightly guided us through out the process. He made sure that we dint go over too much on our Upgrades.
He is way too professional, fast in responding back, Punctual and treats every Client with due respect and most importantly he is straightforward. He is not afraid to speak the truth, irrespective of Loss or Gain. Many a times he guided me with right product selection and he accompanied me for all my appointments during the product selection. He invests a lot of time, effort and dedication in everything he do. He got passion for what he’s doing. Unlike other realtors he cares for the Clients benefits and he is “MAN OF WORD”
I would definitely recommend Shane to anyone and I bet you wont regret after working with him.
Good Luck Shane I wish you all the best for your future endeavors, hard working people like you wont be let down.

Thank you so much for this awesome review it was great to get to know you while building your home. Please let me know if you ever need anything.
The Torres team was the best. Working from out of state to sell my house was a challenge and the Torres team were champions. They were very quick to respond in any of my questions and concerns. They were supportive and helpful for any ridiculous request from the bank. The explained every phase and the next steps that I needed to take. Thanks to Shane and his team I was able to sell my house without any major problem. I would recommend Shane and his team to anyone.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Des Moines, IA.
The Torres Team was AWESOME to work with! Shane Torres, and his office manager Jenna, were prompt at responding to emails and phone calls and provided excellent feedback/advice when requested. Being that this was my first home purchase, I was a little anxious beginning the process but with the help and guidance of the Torres Team I immediately felt comfortable and in good hands.
I would strongly recommend using Shane Torres and will use him when I am ready to sell/buy again.
