Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 in West Des Moines, IA.
My Agent, Jon Smith, provided me with all of the knowledge I needed while looking for my first home! I did not know what I was getting myself into and he took care of everything and made the whole process very easy for me. I would call, text, email him at night with any questions that I had and he responded that same night. He was wonderful with following up and making sure I had all of the right paperwork in line and how to go about getting that paperwork. He helped me pick out the right home for me. We went and looked at many different homes, but not too many because we had it narrowed down to the ones I really liked. He was there every step of the way. I never felt pressured into buying something that was not the right fit. This is a review but also a thank you for making the whole experience an unforgettable first home buy for me!
Jon provided a great buying experience. He was knowledgable about the area and the neighborhood, as well as the state of market. The offer and closing process went smoothly as well. I would recommend him to any buyer looking in the area.
Jon was a pleasure to work with, not counting the fact that he was able to help me sell my brother's house within about a week after I contacted him and at a price that was more than I ever expected He kept me posted at all times and we were able to get everything accomplished quickly even though I live about 300 miles from where the house was located. I certainly would recommend him anytime and will ask my friends to do the same.
“I highly recommend Jon Smith for your real estate needs. I have worked with other realtors in other parts of the country to purchase and sell homes in the past. Jon is the most professional, well prepared, and most knowledgeable of the local market than any realtor I’ve worked with. Being relatively new to the area, he was a huge asset in helping us find tremendous value in a home. He gave us the freedom to find homes with the features we wanted then helped us objectively compare homes so we got the biggest bang for our buck.
In the past during negotiations, I’ve questioned whose interest my realtor has in mind.That wasn’t the case with Jon. He shared his opinion on what he thought the seller would agree to then made the offer I requested. Unlike some past realtors, Jon didn’t try to talk me into or out of anything. When it’s time to sell my home I will be calling Jon to list it without hesitation.”
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Johnston, IA.
I am from the Twin Cities and was not able to travel to DSM to look at the homes, including the home we ended up purchasing prior to making the offer. Jon worked with my niece who lived locally and kept me informed via phone, email and text. The entire process worked out great. I arrived in DSM the day before closing, did the walk through and closed the next morning. Thanks to Jon's willingness to work with my niece, his knowledge of the market, etc, I felt very comfortable throughout the process. I would recommend him to anyone.
My experience with Jon Smith has been one that I can say was great. Once I decided to purchase a home closer to my children. I found Jon on the Internet. I signed up and he continuously sent me update via internet on home in the location that I wanted to find a home. Once I decided on a home he worked with me on all aspects of purchasing a home. He advised me on the many aspects of purchasing a property, and was there for the pre inspections and post inspection. Since I am a transportation consultant, and on location in McKinney, TX. Jon made appointment easy for me and also worked around my crazy schedule. I appreciate his caring and thoughtful attitude on working with me.
Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $175K in West Des Moines, IA.
Jon has helped me through a half-dozen transactions over the past 20+ years, including helping me find my current residence. I know I can count on him for professionalism, objective advice and complete honesty. In fact, I've referred dozens of friends to Jon, even those who are just beginning to consider buying or selling. None of them has ever come back to me with a single complaint about working with Jon!

Jon did a great job walking me through my first home buy. He went above and beyond making sure we got the best house in a great neighborhood, best deal, and all the stood by us through closing and beyond. He even helped get new appliances delivered.
