Ever try to buy a property 1000 miles away, sight unseen and then sell it two years later? I did in 2020 and 2022 and fortunately connected with Molly Neal-Wong to successfully take me through those transactions from afar! Molly's matter-of-fact guidance and counsel were invaluable given the distance, and I am thankful to have had her experience and professionalism on my side during the process! Kudos to Molly and I highly recommend her if you are 1000 miles away or even right around the corner!

testimonial quote

We were out of state sellers and got referred to use Taylor Larson, she assigned Diane Cox her assistant to work with us. Diane was extremely rude to my family, she called me stupid, everyone we hired for repairs after the inspection she called losers. If there was an option for 0 stars I would have chosen that. I have never met a realtor so rude and disrespectful. This was our first time ever selling a home and it honestly was the worst experience ever. I would not recommend Diane to anyone who is buying or selling. We expressed our concerns to Taylor Larson the main realtor numerous times and she said would remove Diane from working. That lasted for about a week then we were back with Diane. Diane was extremely unprofessional, both realtors refused to do an open house until we literally begged them to do so. They did not want to work at all. Diane made this process way longer than it needed to be. They did not keep us in the loop about anything and we had to ask numerous times to get feedback on how showings would go. I’m not normally the type to leave reviews but this was beyond unacceptable and I don’t want others to be treated the way we were.

I couldn’t help but be impressed with Kathy’s professional ability to quickly sell our home and make the process so simple. Loved working with her and if I ever find myself buying in the area again, I would seek the help of Kathy Thompson!

Lara is the hardest working, with the most common sense in a, realtor I’ve ever dealt with. Compared to working with other realtors, she delivers! Easy peasy!

Lara H. is an excellent realtor! If you are looking for a hard working individual that you can trust, she is a great choice! She has many years of experience. This is the 4th house she has helped our family either buy or sell. (Both of our adult children have utilized her services as well). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her!

Lisa Scharfenkamp | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

We love Lara! She was such a support to us in finding our dream home. She was always able to get us into houses quickly and willing take us back multiple times as she understood that this was a huge decision for our family. We were also house hunting with two kids and Lara was always willing to occupy our two year old so my husband and I could have some time to talk and process without distraction. We even had questions pertaining to some fixes for the new house and she always had a good recommendation and ball park on the cost. She made the home buying process easy and enjoyable. I recommend Lara to anyone who asks!

Ryan is totally awesome! Came highly recommended from our daughter & son-in-law! Drove all over Story Cty showing us homes, sometimes twice a day due to our schedules! Kept our long list of 'retirement' home wants in mind at all times, and reminded us of the prize that was coming when the looking got long and the 'right' thing didn't come as quickly as we wanted it to! And when it did, it is everything and then some! Woot woot! Thank you, Hunziker for training and employing this very professional young man who was much like part of the family!

Brenda found my home for me before it was on the market! She was timely and professional. Make sure to give Brenda a call next time you’re looking to buy or sell a home. (515-450-8900)

Lisa was wonderful! Very quick to respond and get us into houses. She quickly learned what did and didn't like and showed us houses accordingly. Our house sold quicker than expected so we needed to buy quickly to make it all work. She was with us the whole way through and was nothing short of awesome.

Lauren H | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Lara is amazing! We bought and sold with her when we lived in Ames. She came highly recommended from multiple friends and after buying our house we happily recommended her to our friends. I fell in love with her during our first viewing when she plopped down on her knees in a rather messy basement to test the sump pump. She likes people, understands that real estate is stressful for both buyers and sellers and can tell you exactly who to call to get something fixed after you buy and as you are prepping to sell. We just wish we could have packed her in the moving van to help us buy a home in our new state. We had a level of trust for Lara, her professional experience and her ethics that we have not been able to replace in our new situation.

Brenda was very well prepared for every meeting we had. She walked us through what to expect during each step of the selling process and was very enjoyable to work with. Although the condo we sold was not one of Brenda's larger sales, she still treated us wonderfully.

Mr. Horstman walked with us through our home buying process every step of the way. Beginning with home tours, to financing and home inspectors, he is a wealth of information. Jim has many people connections to assist you . From the first time we met Jim, he was very attentive and professional.

testimonial quote

I am a first time home buyer and Sherri Smith helped me tremendously. I really had no idea about the home-buying process and Sherri helped me through it all. I contacted her with a list of houses that I wanted to look at. They were all over the place in style and price but she was very patient and helped me realize what would fit best with me. The house I ended up buying was not on my list but she thought it would be a good one to look at. I'm glad she did because it fits me and my needs at this time in my life. Going through the houses, she pointed things out that I may not like in the house or neighborhood and pointed out things that are great about the houses. Sherri helped me through the whole process and made sure that I had everything done that needed to be done. She always responded to my questions in a timely manner whether it was a phone call, text, or email. I highly recommend Sherri if you are purchasing a home. She made the process so easy and stress-free!

Kristian Foddrill made sure we got exactly what we were looking for in a home. She is definitely someone you want in your corner.

John Livingston assisted with the purchase of a home in Ames. He listened to my needs and selected appropriate properties. The process was seamless. The first property we visited is the one I ultimately selected. But I had enough comparisons to evaluate. He has a deep understanding of the local market and guided me to the the right choice. I am very happy with John's reality abilities and will use him again when selling or buying property.

"Brenda Pedigo_Weigel helped me locate and buy a home that fitted my needs. She was extremely helpful in guiding me through the whole process of buying my 1st home. Brenda kept me updated on new local listing in my price range as they came onto the market and was very good at returning my phone calls and emails. It was helpful that she would work around my schedule so that I was able to go look at homes. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. "

I can't begin to tell you how pleased Jan and I were with the services of Patrick Weigel and Hunziker Realty! Patrick was very patient with us and after six months we found the right home and bought it for the asking price two hours after the "for sale": sign was placed in the front yard. We bought the house on a Thursday, listed our home on Friday, had an open house on Sunday, and our house was sold for the asking price on the following Monday. Bought a house, sold a house in four days! We couldn't ask for any better results! Many thanks!

hank you so much to Kathy Thompson for all of her expertise in selling our property. Who would have dreamed we would have a solid offer in 6 days. We appreciate that you featured it in such a great way and all of your timely communications.

Misty Metschke is a real estate agent made of pure awesomesauce. She spent a couple years with us, showing us a wide range of properties (we had several must-haves and a gazillion nice-to-haves that made the search a bit challenging, to say the least). Despite the many, many tours she arranged and questions we asked, Misty always remained upbeat and optimistic. When she helped us find our dream home, she led us through the entire process with professionalism and Midwest hospitality. She really makes the experience feel personal... On closing day, she even showed up with a gift bag of some moving essentials. Hands down, she's the best agent out there!

Rachel | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

We were reluctant to purchase a home because the first realtors we met were either: unfriendly; uninterested; too eager; or pushy. We met Misty who was sociable and knowledgeable. After meeting her we were eager to purchase a home. She worked with us: always supplying the information we needed, being available at our times, and never pushing extra or unwanted services on us. We were completely pleased with this experience and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new home.

My husband and I were very impressed with Lisa Nady from the start. We had just began the process of looking at properties (online) when we contacted Lisa about a home in Nevada that she was selling. She was quick to set up a showing that worked with our schedule. Whenever we would email/text/call, she was always prompt and friendly. She made the process so easy and we appreciated everything that she did to make our first home buying experience so simple.

Carla's assistance in helping us find a home was outstanding. While interviewing for a new position, Carla spent considerable time showing my wife houses that met our criteria (which we continually modified as Carla explained the local market to us). On a tight timeline, Carla managed to help us gain access to several houses including the house we were most interested in seeing. As job events unfolded, we were in negotiations for the house on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Carla took the holidays in stride and helped us conclude difficult negotiations by noon on New Year's Day! Upon relocating to the Ames area, Carla arranged for a home inspection, identifying utilities and recommending mortgage lenders making this one of the smoothest house purchase transactions we've had. Following closing, Carla worked some annoying after closing issues taking the hassles out of buying after the dust settles. Carla is a superb real estate professional who I would use again and trust family members and friends to use if they were in need of a house. Carla has my strongest endorsement if you are in need of an agent who will work tirelessly for you.

Kathy Thompson made the decision to sell my house a reality. She was courteous, informed and always willing to answer all my questions, even about the furniture. She helped me at every stage of the selling process, allowing me to leave for my new home in Colorado earlier. I especially appreciated her interest in my situation and her e-mails. Thank you Kathy!
