Testimonials

Some comments from a few of our clients.....

 

Rob was very knowledgeable regarding the home we were buying. If he did not know the answer he did not pretend to know and he looked into the questions we had. I have to say my father in law put him through the ringer on some questions and Rob was very patient, kind and just amazing! He never appeared, or sounded annoyed with my family at all. He was very accommodating. He did not ignore our calls and he kept us in know of his schedule. He knows his customers and remembers them over the years. He is wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone I know looking for a home.

 

We were very blessed to get the opportunity to work with Kathy when we recently built our new house with Van Der kamp Homes! Kathy made the process amazingly smooth. She does a great job of managing the details and keeping her clients informed. We would highly recommend Kathy to anyone! Monica U.

 

Rob helped us when we purchased land to build our home on. We had been looking for a while and he helped us find the perfect location. He was extremely knowledgeable regarding the market. Rob was excellent when it came to negotiating and putting together an offer we were happy with. Rob is a seasoned and professional agent!  Kristy M.

 

Kathy handled our purchase of a new home in Ankeny, IA. As we were relocating from Pittsburgh, we were very unfamiliar with Des Moines. She educated us and helped us find the perfect house. To drive home how much we think of Kathy, after just six months in the new house I received a job offer from back in Pittsburgh that has us moving from Ankeny and we did not hesitate or even bother to discuss, we immediately called Kathy and she is handling listing and selling our house. I have complete confidence in Kathy's abilities.  Eric L.

 

Rob was our listing agent and also assisted us in the purchase of our new home. He was very professional, dependable and really knows the local market. He would be our 1st choice for a Realtor should we decide to sell or buy another home in the Des Moines area.

 

Kathy has sold 2 homes for me and helped my family build our dream home. She is quick to respond to questions via phone, email or text. She steps you through the buying/selling process with ease. Kathy is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure you are comfortable every step of the way! Sarah S.

 

Rob is a great person and was a pleasure to work with. Rob helped my wife and I find a home in Ankeny when we decided to move back from Minnesota. He is very knowledgeable of the local area, market, and pricing of homes in different neighborhoods around Des Moines. He was very happy to work around our strange schedule of when we were in town to look at homes and helped us through the purchasing process very well. I plan to utilize Rob's talents again some day when we decide to sell this home and relocate. Thanks Rob!

 

Worked with Kathy and Vanderkamp Homes on our new house. She was very helpful and quick to respond. From everything from getting our general construction questions answered to giving advice on picking some of the flooring and other interior options.

 

I've used Rob for several purchases and home sales now. He has consistently provided outstanding service every time I've engaged his services. He is as honest and ethical as it gets. Highly recommended. Darvish S.

 

Kathy was great!! We were new to the Des Moines area and first time home owners, so Kathy's knowledge of the area was awesome! She helped us through every step in the process, and we couldn't be happier with our home!

 

Recently divorced, I was looking for a condo or house to purchase. Rob showed me a condo that was very reasonably priced but needed some TLC. He walked me through and discussed upgrades that I could make and how purchasing a "fixer-upper" would be a cost effective way for me to purchase a home. Today, I am living in a beautiful renovated condo that I made my own. He is fabulous and had some great ideas, which I used. I would recommend Rob to anyone needing to purchase a home.

 

I recently purchased a foreclosed property and Rob was my agent for the transaction, there were several offers on the property at the time that my offer was made. Rob was very diplomatic in his negotiations and was able to get the house for my family and I. I will use Rob for all of my future real estate needs.  Randy R.

  

I met Kathy a year prior to ever building our home or selling our existing home. When my husband and I first met Kathy, she did not push or "sell" us the house we were looking at. I felt that she was more interested in building a relationship with us than she was in making sure told us that she had the perfect house. We ended up using the builder she worked with to build our "forever" home and she was great to work with every step along the way. She listens to you and has a great eye for design as well. Kathy also sold our house for us and it was seemless and much easier than trying to sell on our own. Kathy is professional and understands the market. It doesn't hurt that she is fun and has a contagious laugh. I loved working with her and I will always recommend people to her! Trish K.

 

Rob was fantastic. His knowledge of the area, real estate values, and neighborhoods was very helpful. He represented us in the sale of our home - which sold in three days! And helped us buy a new home. Throughout the process he was timely with his responses, he listened to all of our requests, and he gave us good counsel. He didn't tell us what we wanted to hear but gave us information and his thoughts on the homes we were looking at. It was very helpful when weighing our options. Our purchase was a little non traditional and he totally nailed it! The thing that impressed me most about Rob was what he did after the sale and still does to this date. He followed up on several things following the sale and months after the close he is just as responsive as he was when we first started working with him. I literally called him the other day for a recommendation on a painter and he got back to me in an hour with several of his personal recommendations.

 

Kathy is absolutely top notch. When we were in the market to buy our first home, we knew nothing about the real estate market. Kathy came in and put our minds at ease. She saw to it the the home we wanted was in great condition, listed at a fair price, and that everything else was as it should be for us to buy it. If you're looking to buy or sell, give Kathy a call. There's no one better.  Manny G.

 

Rob was amazing to work with! He went above and beyond to sell our house. Rob was always very thorough and knowledgeable regarding the housing market. We really appreciated his hard work and recommend him to everyone we know. Amy W.

 

Rob was recommended to me as an Ankeny area expert. From our first meeting, my wife and I knew that Rob was a fantastic individual and professional. Rob was extremely knowledgeable and patient through out the process and his experience with new construction was invaluable as we explored the possibilities for updating the home we ended up purchasing. He helped us search the communities on the north and west edges of the Des Moines metro. Rob worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect home and if we ever decide to get back into the market, Rob will be our first call.  Thomas G.

 

Great customer service and very friendly. Always responded to my emails promptly and answered all questions during the home purchasing process. Would definitely recommend to friends and family!  Ben S.

   

I've known this real estate team for a couple years and finally have had the opportunity to work with them. What a great experience! They work with speed and efficiency. I have had an excellent experience thus far. I have friends that are now working with this real estate team based on my experience and are also very happy. Check them out!  Chelsea M

 

This was our first home buying experience and although we had done our share of research, there were many smaller details of buying a home we had not thought of. Kathy was more than happy to walk us through EVERY step of the process. We actually had a trip to Chicago planned when we decided make an offer on our home (terrible timing right?). Our plane landed and as soon as we were in the cab we were signing the electronic docs. she had prepared for us. There we were heading to Wrigley to watch a Cubs game and had just agreed to purchase our first home. Life was great! She is one of the most courteous, professional, and organized people in the business and made our experience a great one.
