    Bought a town home in 2019 for approximately $300K in Oakwood Heights Mobile Home Park, Ankeny, IA 50021.
    I would highly recommend Maria. She is extremely knowledgeable about the greater DesMoines area. When we recently decided to move from the suburban Chicago area, we knew very little about where we wanted to be in DSM. Maria did most of the legwork for us, as we were 5 hours away. She researched, previewed and gave us the pros and cons of the dozens and dozens of homes we were considering. Most of all, she was patient and never seemed like were being unreasonable, although at times I am sure we were. In addition, she recommended lenders, insurance agents, inspectors, repair guys and, most important, her insight to the neighborhoods we were considering - growth, traffic, ongoing construction, querks of the HOA’s and more. It took us about 4 months to find what we were after and Maria was a rock star in helping with the decision. I have bought many homes in my life but this was the best experience I have had.

    Bought a single family home in 2019 for approximately $225K in Valley Junction, West Des Moines, IA 50265.
    Buying a home for the first time can obviously be pretty stressful, but Maria made the whole process feel relatively easy. She did a great job of weighing pros and cons with me for the homes I was considering, so I always felt comfortable and informed with my decisions. And she never said no to any of my crazy last-minute requests to go check out one more house! Two thumbs up - thanks, Maria!

    Bought a single family home in 2019 for approximately $325K in Mel-Ray Mobile Home Park, Ankeny, IA 50023.
    We met with Maria after our local realtor recommended her for our move and we couldn't have chosen any better ourselves! She was patient and very knowledgeable of the area. Her advice was invaluable and during the stressful process of moving, house hunting and welcoming our first child, she remained calm and kept us on track. We would gladly seek her help again in the future!

    We worked with Maria for almost 2 years and eventually settled on building. Maria was with us through the lengthy process and guided us through all the phases of construction. Her expertise was invaluable, and we would recommend her to anyone.

    Bought a single family home in 2018 for approximately $275K in Mel-Ray Mobile Home Park, Ankeny, IA 50023.
    When I first interviewed Maria via phone, she answered all of my questions and even though some of my questions were quite pointed she had a calm knowledgeable demeanor that was impressive. After meeting her, I knew we had made the right choice to choose her for our Realtor. Although our process was lengthy, 2 years, she continued to maintain contact with us throughout, clarifying our "wants and needs", pointing us the right direction. When our timeline became a short deadline, Maria stepped up to the plate and made us a priority. She provided all the help we needed, even when we couldn't think about what the next step would be, she was there directing us, giving us options, and offering wisdom and guidance when we asked her for it. Maria has been the best Realtor and we HIGHLY recommend her and her knowledge of Ankeny Realty, plus her very professional business acumen.

    Sold a single family home in 2017 for approximately $225K in Oakwood Heights Mobile Home Park, Ankeny, IA 50021.
    Maria exceeded all of our expectations.

    She listened to our concerns, did what she said she would, always answered our calls and showed up on time, every time, prepared and knowledgeable.

    From our first contact, to concise instructions on how to prepare our home for a sale, to marketing and getting our house shown to a steady stream of potential buyers, and then to excellent advise and counsel on how to determine which of the many offers was the right one. She did it all.
