Customer Testimonial

Jason Mickelson

Seller Rating:

Met Jason through church. He was a joy to work with. He also worked well with our other realtor for our new house. She is also with Century 21 so that helped.

Buyer asked for a lot. Jason did a good job of negotiating on our behalf.

Could not be happier with Jason Mickelson! - Mike And Tammy Carr, August 2017

Katie Riedeman

Buyer Rating:

After working with Jared Van Cleave successfully in the past to buy and later sell a condo, we came back to look for help with fulfilling a dream of finding an acreage. We worked with Katie Riedeman, Jared's buyer specialist, for over two years to find that perfect acreage. In the fast-moving, popular acreage market in Central Iowa, she was patient, very knowledgeable, and kept on top of things for us, looking for listings wherever possible and never giving up hope that we would find the 'perfect' one. When one finally came up that we decided to make an offer on, Katie helped us navigate the process of placing a bid and how to handle a multiple offer situation. Katie's hard work and dedication paid off and our offer was accepted! After buying an acreage, we needed to sell our current home. With no hesitation we asked Katie to help us sell our home. She again helped us navigate the fast paced landscape and answered any question we had about the selling process. Again, her dedication paid off and we were able to sell our house in a few days! We can't say enough wonderful things about Katie Riedeman and her work ethic and dedication to help her clients find the house they want, as well as help them sell their house and get top dollar. Thanks again Katie for everything! - The Knepper's Bondurant August 2017

Jared Van Cleave

Seller Rating:

Jared was wonderful to work with in the sale of my mother's property after her passing. He was very understanding how difficult it was to sell our family home but also realistic in helping us decide how to price and market the home. He was very patient when needed and gave great advice! The sale happened quickly and he was great at walking our family through all aspects of the sale and keeping us up to date. - Erin Feaker, Story City August 2017

Victoria Hill

Seller Rating:

Victoria always followed up when she said she would. I always knew when someone was coming to view the property and she always followed up with a review of the individual's comments regarding the property. When we had an offer, she fully handled appointments with the inspection businesses and was there to take care of my interests.

Victoria watched out for and took care of my interests. - Judy Loehrer, Boone Ia. August 2017

Kimberly Bloem

Buyer Rating:

I came to Kim Bloem with the idea of buying a home and she made it a reality. We went through many storms (literally...Iowa weather!) and interesting houses but found the right one in the end.

Kim is very knowledgeable and timely. She spelled out each step and was patient when looking at homes. She was on top of everything and was able to answer any questions I may have had.

I am truly thankful for her time and commitment during this process. She treated me more like a good friend than a customer and that speaks volumes of Kim's personality and commitment to her job.

Thanks, Kim! - Jamie Fisher, Cambridge July 2017

Shelly Billings

Seller Rating:

Shelly went above and beyond I helping us sell the house. Without her extra efforts and time representing us, we don't know if we would have been able to sell the house in the short time hat we did and at the price we were able to get. Shelly was friendly, courteous, and responded immediately to any requests or concerns from us. Shelly Billings works very hard, enjoys her work, and truly cares about her clients. I would recommend her very highly.

Shelly does great work!

Extremely professional and courteous. - Bill Robyt Ramsey, Minne June 2017
