    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $400K in Ames, IA.
    Bought a house in Ames working with Traci. She is a terrific realtor, responsive, a great listener and very knowledgeable regarding the local and area market. She treated us like royalty and her firm is simply first rate! If I could do it all over again there would be no question that I’d choose her for my realtor. And to top it all off she’s so much fun!!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $600K in Ames, IA.
    This is the duo you need by your side during any real estate purchase/sale! Bill and Traci assisted us with buying a lot, locating a qualified contractor to build our home, and then subsequently selling that property following a job related relocation. During each transaction they were the utmost professionals and delivered results the left us very pleased...all while making us feel like the most valued clients in the world! I only wish I could assign a rating higher than 5 stars!!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $200K in Ames, IA.
    We hired Bill to sell our 1st home. He was very helpful in setting the right price so that we were able to move quickly in order to secure the home we were living into next. He was very quick to respond to any of our questions and kept us well informed throughout the entire process.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $225K in Allenview, Ames, IA.
    Traci stuck with us for 1.5 years trying to find the right home. Through putting an offer down - then backing out due to the inspection, viewing a lot of homes, and driving all over town, she viewed everything through our eyes and gave us advice of what she thought was best. She understands the market, the process was easy, and communication was great. Everything we wanted in an agent and a great representative of the Ames area to new families.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $250K in Ankeny, IA.
    We are very happy with Traci and her team. We contacted her based on feedback from friends of ours. She came out and gave good advice on how we could improve our home for sale. She performed a market analysis to help us get an early look on what our home would be listed at. Once we were ready, we listed our house slightly above the earlier estimate based on the recommended changes we had made. Her team did an great job staging the house for the listing photos.
    We had a negotiated offer accepted within 36 hours of listing. During the month or so of pending sale, she and her team helped get through the inspection process with little involvement from us. A week before close, we had a water issue with the flash flooding that hit Ankeny. Even though Traci was on a prescheduled vacation, she stayed in contact and worked with the buyer's agent to keep the deal alive. Even with the twist at the end, the sale went off without a hitch. We are very thankful to Traci and her team.

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $325K in Ames, IA.
    Traci helped us sell two homes and buy one and she is a fantastic ally to have on your team. There were multiple instances where we heavily leaned on her experience in the local market and in real estate in general. She helped us keep our cool, talk us through complex situations and guide us through the final stages of the sale.

    Traci and her team are phenomenal to work with and made the entire home sale/buying process as stress-less as possible. I highly recommend them!
