    Bought and sold a Townhouse home in 2019 for approximately $175K in Ames, IA.
    Jennings team is a family treating me like family. They went ABOVE AND BEYOND! I was trying to pack and had things I no longer wanted. Traci said send me pics and I will post on sale sites for you. She made sure I closed accounts connected with the old house and transfer to new. When I moved in there were a lot of paint cans left that I did not want to deal with. I disposed my own. Traci picked them up after they were left by my step for a week for previous owner to pick up. I wasn’t delivered my house key, garage opener, mail key for a week from other realtor. Traci kept checking to see if I got them. When I didn’t she made sure they were delivered THAT DAY. FIVE STARS PLUS TO THE JENNNINGS TEAM. U am all moved in but they continue to reach out. I am so grateful for their part of my journey moving forward! Thank you!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2019 for approximately $350K in Ankeny, IA.
    We purchased our first new home from Traci she was simply amazing. I highly recommend dealing with a well educated and experienced realtor when purchasing a home there are so many need to know things and if you have someone who is experienced well they may actually save you money and time as well. The Jennings are great and they have earned our business for life.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2019 for approximately $200K in Story City, IA.
    Traci was up-front and honest about everything from day 1. We were very pleased with all the helpful tips she gave us to present our home in the best possible way to sell it quickly. Traci took the time to help arrange the house with professional photography and the pictures turned out amazing. She even gifted a nice bouquet of flowers to have on the table for the first day of showings. We were skeptical when she told us to list our house for 179,900 as that was way higher than we imagined selling it for. We were ecstatic to accept an offer on the 2nd day our house was listed for a price of 178,500. We are 100% happy with our choice to list with Traci and the Jennings Real Estate Team.

    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.
