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.
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.
Erika worked very hard to show us several homes in a short period of time. Her response time to our questions was very quick and she gave honest answers. I appreciated her hard work ethic and her willingness to explain all aspects of the home buying process.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Clive, IA.
Our experience with Erika was exxellent! She was referred to us via a mutual acquaintance, and did not disappoint! She was extremely responsive, usually getting back to us within hours and was great about keeping us updated throughout the process. Erika was knowledgable about the area and was careful not to show us any homes outside our price range. We would recommend her to others and plan to use her in the future should we need a realtor again! In fact, she was even helpful in giving us tips about selling our old home in another city even though she wasn't the agent.
Erika helped us so much when we were looking for our new home! She took the time to go above and beyond to help us. She is patient, she responds right away, and listens to her customers needs. I highly recommend her.

We enjoyed Erika for many reasons!! She took us through a ton of homes and never got pushy or distressed with the process! Helped us through a poor lender choice, a FSBO and a short sale before we actually purchased our home!! Highly recommend her!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Waukee, IA.
Erika makes it happen! Not only is she always available and truly willing to help, but she knows what she is talking about and will work hard to deliver. My wife and I bought our first house from Erika and honestly could not have hoped to have a better agent.
I started the whole process feeling well over my head, but Erika talked me through everything until I had the keys in my hand. Do not hesitate to give her a call. She won't let you down.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Beaverdale, Des Moines, IA.
We have worked with Erika twice, both when purchasing our first home, and when buying/selling into our second home. Erika is extremely organized and responsive, which is so important during this process. She handles every detail of her job with expertise, planning, and care. Buying/selling can be stressful, but Erika does an excellent job of being ahead of the curve - by the time I could worry about something she had already taken care of it!
She asked critical questions when she needed to, and provided us with lots of good information when it came to staging and pricing our home. She worked hard to market our house, and I know that it is because of Erika that our house sold in fewer than two weeks! I recommend Erika to all my friends and would recommend her to you as well!
