I understand what home sellers and buyers need and what they are looking for. I put my clients needs first to ensure that they have a great home buying experience. I also offer my clients a six month love-it-or-leave-it policy where I will sell your house for free if you are not satisfied with it. Give me a call and I can give you more details about that or answer other questions that you may have. We can also arrange a time to meet to go through a market analysis for your home or my buyer consultation where I can walk you through the entire selling or buying process and answer any questions that you may have. I look forward to serving you!

      Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Ames, IA.
      We were in the market for a new house for a long time, in a seller's market--so frustrating. One house after another was bid out of our price range, or purchased shortly after we looked at it. So when we looked at a townhouse that was perfect for both our needs, and our budget, we eagerly started the bidding process.

      Imagine our disappointment when, after the first series of offers and counter-offers, the owner took his home off the market! But Steve, of his own initiative, went to every townhouse in that development that had a similar floor plan, talking to owners to see if they would be interested in selling. Lo and behold, one was!

      Long story short, we move to our new home in just two weeks. If it hadn't been for Steve's initiative, we might still be in the market today. He went above and beyond the call of duty, for which we are very grateful. Thanks, Steve!

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Ankeny, IA.
      Steve was very interested in my wants/needs for now and the future and helped find a home that would be a good fit for me. I've worked in the financial services industry for 10 years and have done business with many agents and Steve is one of the top ones I’ve worked with. I tend to my very particular and Steve was great to work with and very understanding of my personality type. He kept me level headed when things did not go well and dealt with my builder to get the issues resolved before my closing, which by the way was in 12 hours! Kudos to Steve. I would recommend him to anyone!  MoreLess

      Sold a home in 2012.
      Steve helped us find our perfect home! He put up with our crazy demands. Not only have we recommend Steve to friends and family, he's also our chosen relator to sale our old home. Steve has checked in over the last 10 months to ensure we are still happy with our home! Steve is more than just a great relator he is a very caring person!  MoreLess
