    For the past five years, I\'ve been involved in hundreds of real estate transactions. As a lifelong resident of the area, I know the market well and bring a unique background that benefits both sellers and buyers. For people looking to sell property, I take the time to go through the listing thoroughly and point out things that I think will benefit their selling the property faster. It might be to remove some items or to stage a room differently. I’ll spend hours moving things around if necessary, just so we can get the pictures we need. Potential buyers often make their first impressions from what they find online and I want to put your property in the best light. I also take the time to research the market to find you a fair value for your home, based on what has previously sold in the area. You want to get the most value for your home, but you also want to sell it in a timely manner. I help you achieve that. For buyers I bring the years of experience I had in the construction industry and as the owner of a successful roofing company. In entering a property, I look for the issues that might create problems later. I can tell you how long your roof might have and what it could cost to replace. For older homes, I look for issues related to water damage, from in the basement to what I find with the walls. If you’re new to the area, I can not only help with home buying, but also get to know the area. So that your home is near the places your interested in or close to where you’ll be working. I want my buyers to know I have their back and that I’ll advise against a home if I think it’s not the right fit for them. I’ll show you as many properties as necessary to find the one that meets your budget and your needs. To help you find the home of your dreams. In addition to helping with residential and commercial property, I can also help with agricultural and recreational listings. I grew up on a farm and worked in the soil conversation office of the state of Iowa for over 30 years. I can read a soil report and know how fertile the ground might be or if there is potential for drought in a year. Schedule a conversation with me today at (563) 542-0800. I take the time to get to know my clients so that I can serve them in the most effective manner.
