I was raised in Humboldt, IA (north central) and graduated from Iowa State University. I specialize in the suburban markets and first-time buyers. In my free time I enjoy reading, running, playing and taking trips with my family. My husband and I look forward to watching our three children grow-up in what we believe is the best place in America to live.

Des Moines has so much to offer everyone and I take a great deal of pleasure in finding clients their perfect home in the ideal area. I have expertise with today's technology and tools, and use those skills to streamline the buying and selling processes, so your experience is guaranteed to be a stress-free one.

I enjoy the personal connection I get to have with my clients, and know that I'm not just selling them a house, but a home. I take great pride in the service I provide my clients, and operate honestly and openly... the way true Iowans do.

I look forward to hearing from you when you are ready to make that move!

Ratings & Reviews

Erika listened to what we wanted and the area we wanted to be in. She worked hard to find properties meeting those requirements. She kept us informed throughout the entire search and through closing.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Beaverdale, Des Moines, IA.

Erika was my biggest advocate and source of info when I bought my first house. I was anticipating a long, stressful process, but Erika's knowledge, patience and friendly attitude made it a quick and enjoyable experience. Her availability and quick response time are unparalleled, and she was able to walk me through the process from beginning to end. She asked important questions and listened to my answers—narrowing down neighborhoods and eliminating houses that were out of budget or didn't include my requirements. I wouldn't hesitate to use Erika again if/when it comes time to sell or buy again.  More Less

Bought a home in 2014 in Valley Junction, West Des Moines, IA 50265.

Erika was very knowledgeable regarding the housing market. We were first-time home buyers, and she was very helpful walking us through all of the steps from considering neighborhoods/cities to putting in an offer and the closing process. She was also extremely accommodating with our schedules, which was especially helpful since one of us was living in a different city at the time. She continued to go out of her way to be helpful even after we had closed and moved in. We will call Erika again when we need a Realtor, and we would highly recommend her.  More Less
