    Bought a single family home in 2022 for approximately $200K in Ames, IA 50014.
    We worked with Abigail to find a second home in Ames for my daughter and son as they attend Iowa State. This search began in January 2021. Finding properties near the Iowa State campus is not an easy task. There are so many investors who snatch these up quickly, that it makes it difficult to purchase since houses were being sold the same day they were posted. We live in Moville, IA, so there was no time for us to plan a visit to tour homes when they were listed.

    Abigail took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for. She notified us of new houses via email and text and let us know when she thought the new listings could be a good fit for our needs. She scheduled virtual walk throughs to allow us to see the homes without driving to Ames every time.

    What really sealed my trust with Abigail is during tours, she was very honest about house conditions and would make comments like 'This is not the house for you' after seeing conditions that would make her think twice about buying the house herself.

    Abigail stuck with us, and we eventually found the perfect house in March 2022. She was always willing to make time to show us houses virtually, and she was never disappointed when we decided to pass. She consistently told us that the right house was out there.

    I truly believe that Abigail is the reason our offer was accepted. We were competing in a market where investors had no issue with bidding $20-$30k over list without any contingencies like inspections. During a virtual tour, Abigail talked to the homeowner and let him know that this wasn't an investment property, and that our family would use this for our two children. I think that sealed the deal because he chose us!

    Abigail was patient, thoughtful, and walked us through every step as we adventured through this process from a distance. We could not be more grateful, and we love the house she found for us!

    Bought and sold a single family home in 2021 in Ames, IA 50010.
    We had the honor of working with Traci to both sell our old home and to buy a new one!! Traci was so attentive and an EXCELLENT communicator (she takes out all of the stress of buying and selling). She took tremendous care of us throughout the whole process!! She sold our home in just 4 DAYS and helped us secure a home that fit our budget and that checked all the boxes during the crazy housing market times of 2021!!! I promise you - have Traci as your realtor. She is knowledgeable, kind, genuine, fun, personal, and KNOWS what she is doing. She makes moving/buying a home a lot less stressful :) You need her and her team - best of the best.

    Bought a home in 2021 for approximately $325K in Baxter, IA 50028.
    Bill and Traci are detail oriented and take the time to explain the process from beginning offers to closing. They were willing to do whatever it took to make sure we had the information and confidence to acquire our dream property! We enthusiastically recommend Bill ad Traci Jennings!

    Sold a single family home in 2020 in Boone, IA 50036.
    Traci and her team are so very helpful and professional! She helped us buy our home almost four years ago and she just helped us sell our home this December. We had it on the market for several months, and after listing with them it sold pretty quickly. When our movers never showed up she kept us calm the day before closing and helped us figure out our possible options, and even offered to drop everything and help us move furniture. We had such a great experience with them, and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a realtor to make the whole process easy and smooth.

    Traci stepped in and took over our listing due to an unforeseen circumstance with another realtor. She helped give tips on staging and prepping our home for showings and made closing the deal from states away a breeze!! Would highly recommend!!

    Bought a single family home in 2020 for approximately $400K in Ames, IA 50014.
    Traci Jennings is without any doubt the best buyer agent one can have! She is most highly professional and responsive, and was always happy to help us with any question, need and request (and we had many!). She is also a super nice person. We highly recommend her, and would surely hire her again in the future if we ever buy/sell a house again.

    Sold a single family home in 2020 for approximately $300K in Ames, IA 50014.
    Traci was outstanding to work with. Great ideas about staging our house, very knowledgeable about the market and not afraid to be aggressive. We actually got more for our house than we originally planned on listing it for. Traci was also very responsive when any questions or issues came up and had all the contacts to get these items resolved very quickly. Thanks Traci for making this such a great experience. We definitely chose the right realtor!!!
