    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $300K in Ames, IA.
    We bought and -four year later- sold our home with Traci. I would say her main traits are being upbeat, receptive and patient (with customer's crazy ideas). Selling our home was quite a zen process. We were sort of in a rush. We did what she told us, and then the house was gone within a month despite not being in the hottest market at the time. Could we have gone lucky? Probably, but undeniably she went the extra mile working for our well-being. Enough to say, she helped us get rid of heavy furniture we left behind after we moved out of town in a rush for my new job. A positive person to work with and a positive experience!

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Ames, IA.
    Bill & Traci were fantastic in selling my house back in 2012, so when my Mom decided to move to the Ames area, it was only logical to use the Jennings Team. Not only are they locally knowledgeable, they are constantly going to seminars to increase their knowledge base. I feel that Traci really understands my Mom’s needs, wants and timeframe and is absolutely a joy to deal with. Straightforward, honest and caring is how I would sum up the Jennings Real Estate Team!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $275K in Roland, IA.
    Bill and Traci did exactly what I asked of them. Sold my house at a price I was satisfied with. Had a couple communication issues at the start of the process. But once past that, everything went great. Hired someone to take awesome pictures of my property which made the house "pop". Advertised it on social media. Wasn't afraid to offer alternate opinions to my own. Smooth closing process and working with the buyer to make sure each of our needs were met. I would certainly work with them again.

    Bought a home in 2019 in Kelley, IA 50134.
    We met Traci about 8 months prior to purchasing our land. At the time, we had an extremely specific search criteria. Traci was beyond accommodating with all of our questions and needs. She was willing to give her honest opinion whenever we asked, anything from pricing to how rezoning works, it was very evident that she has years of experience in this field. We found the perfect land a few days before Christmas. Traci was even willing to work on the holiday if that was what we needed. Loved our experience with Traci, highly recommended.

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Ames, IA.
    We found out that we were moving to Ames, Iowa and Traci was highly recommended by another military family in the area. We headed out to Iowa for a weekend to look for homes with Traci and she spent the entire weekend helping us. Unfortunately, we didn't leave with an accepted offer, but Traci told us that she would continue looking while we were still out of state. She ended up calling us shortly after we were back home and said that she found a house, but we needed to offer soon in order to get the home. We trusted Traci and her experience/knowledge and put an offer on a home that we only saw in pictures. We were very happy with the home and the neighborhood that she found us! It was located in Northern Ames and our children went to Gilbert schools. A few years later when we needed to move again, Traci was able to sell our home within weeks! She is an amazing agent and person and she made both transactions smooth and without stress. We appreciate everything she did for us and would definitely recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell a home in the area!
