Helping Buyers and Sellers in the Greater Des Moines Community

I have had the pleasure of helping buyers and sellers in the Des Moines area since 2003. I enjoy working with first time home buyers, sellers who are relocating out of the area, or just making a change within the area. I work with our relocation department to help sellers who are transferring out of the community, or buyers who are looking forward to moving into our neighborhoods. We have several offices located throughout the Metro area, I happen to call Altoona my home office. I enjoy helping people with one of the biggest decisions they make. Please contact me with any of your real estate needs. Referrals are always appreciated!
