              Truly market experts. Communicative professionals who go above and beyond to help educate and service their clients needs. I would highly recommend no one else but The Graf Team!!

            • Graf helped me buy a home

                My experience was great. They listened to what I did and didn't want, and showed me several different houses in the area I was looking. They also took the time to go through everything with me as I was a first time home buyer more or less. I would and have recommended them to others.

              • Graf listed and sold my home

                  Steven Peacock with Graf Home Selling Team was beyond amazing to work with & I highly recommend contacting him if your thinking/planning on selling your home or know anyone who is! !!- HE SOLD OUR HOME IN 45 HOURS after being listed! Under 2 days on the market! We were not in a big city but a small town, with other houses on the market competitive to ours. I had been watching the market for a few months prior to listing my home & things in our town were not selling as fast as in big cities, with a few that spent months on the market. I was nervous.. I went with Steven Peacock because many of the homes in our area were sitting & listed with similar teams/agents. Steven was not a familiar name in our town but had raving reviews & the kicker is he charges the same as other, less experienced, less rated realtors! Little did I know this decision would sell my house in a blink.. It felt absolutely unreal how smoothly Steven made everything as there were no issues or bumps in the road the entire time; from first discussion to closing! He was exceptionally easy to reach, great at explaining everything, very personable, made all paperwork minimal & a breeze. There honestly isn't a bad or negative thing I can say about him or the experience I had. His photographer took beautiful shots making our listing attractive while highlighting all the best features of our home & without distorting features (If you've been looking at homes for sale you know what I mean; the images taken with a lense to make rooms look bigger, hide imperfections, distorting images, etc. These pictures were perfectly lit, real size, beautiful & flattering images which also helps buyers see in person what they are expecting from images). I don't know Steven's magic tricks but he pulls them off! I've owned multiple homes in the past & never have I experienced such a fast & flawless experience. Only reccomendation I have for you, besides hiring Steven Peacock to sell your home, is get boxes & get to packing right away because he makes the process & sale so fast, & so seamless you'll be moving into your new home before you know it!

He was very helpful without being too pushy and allowed to to make our decision , giving us advice and answering questions. The offer, contract, and loan approval process was easy and went without any problems. Nick was great at being a liaison between us and the seller and between us and the loan company.

                • Michael Stines with Graf Home Team helped me with the process of buying a home. Moving into a new state and neighborhood it was important for me to find the right fit and get the honest opinion on the buying process, neighborhood, area, local recommendations, and every aspect of things a buyer thinks of. Not only Michael was very proactive and timely on all the queries he even kept in touch and provided suggestion long after we have moved into the house.

                • This is the second house Mike Stines, at Graf Home Selling Team & Associates, has worked with me on purchasing. I can't imagine finding a better realtor to work with. He has always been extremely knowledgeable about the Cedar Rapids area real estate environment. He will tell you his honest opinion on any property and that is hard to come by in some realtors. There is never any pressure into buying any property with Mike. He will walk you through every step of the process. I recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or thinking about buying a home.

                • GHSTA definitely exceeded my expectations in helping me find a compatible home. Unpressured and wisely guided by one of their associates, I was able to navigate through the complex affair closing on a home. There were a lot of tasks for me to complete on my part and some were difficult, but my associate was always there to explain to me what I need to do. I felt that I and my associate worked as a team in accomplishing our goals. Our work together definitely lead to positive ends for me (the buyer), the seller, and my associate.

                • I was a first time home buyer and was very skeptical about the idea of getting a new house however I had a great experience while looking for my new house with the help of Michael Stines representative at Gref Home Selling Team & Associates. I am very glad I found these guys on line just before moving to Cedar Rapids. I didn't have a lot of time to spend in looking for a new house but Michael was always ready to work with my schedule. He did a very diligent job and we were able to find the right place for me in less than one week. He wasnt just able to find the perfect place for me but he also instructed me and guided me through the whole homebuying process and made it really smooth. He was also very knowledgable about all the financial options that I had as a first time home buyer and he always pointed me in the right direction. After moving to my new house, he has always been prime contact to answer any question about my new house. I definitely recommend Michael Stines to anyone who is looking to move to the Cedar Rapids area.

                • It is our pleasure to strongly recommend Cindy Guckenberger (and let's not forget the excellent staff at GHST) for your realtor needs. Cindy has showed the professionalism and the very attention to detail one would expect to see if she was buying her own home. Except, she was helping us buy ours. During this big procedure, Cindy was one step ahead of everything, she made sure we closed the house on time (this was very important because our rental would expire the next weekend - middle of winter), she worked to ensure we got a fair deal, and the procedure remained very transparent. Overall we have felt very safe, knowing Cindy has got our back. She would answer our questions even at the odd hours of the night. Among the number of realtors we have experienced in the years, she is the pride of the industry.

                  - vesperalda Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Cedar Rapids, IA.
                • I thought Alison was AMAZING! She helped me whenever I needed and found out information that I didn't know or understand. She was very fun and personable.

                  - coollook Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Cedar Rapids, IA.
                • I listed a rental property with Scott Rosekrans who is with Ghst in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I found Scott to be a highly dependable and honest person. He is a responsible person who takes his profession seriously. On New Years Eve he had four vacant homes for sale and the temperature was headed for minus 24 below zero. I live out of town and got a phone call from Scott telling me that he was checking properties that no one was living at and found the home I was selling to be without heat. He called a furnace repair person and took care of the problem. Now in my opinion he showed me that he is a man who should be highly recommended. Also I found him to be very knowledgeable about the real estate market. I am pleased that I chose Scott to sell my property. I highly recommend him.

                  - sjhaupt Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Cedar Rapids, IA.
                • Denise made the whole process really easy and stress free; I will definitely be using her services again in the future! As a first time home buyer it was a great relief to have an agent that not only really understood what I wanted, but who could also walk me through the whole process.

                  - lydia jahner Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Cedar Rapids, IA.
                • If you have a property to sell do not hesitate in getting the services of one of the agents of GHST. Our agent, Scott was absolutely impressive and restored our confidence after a previous attempt to sell the house. Though the peak of the season passed, we soon got more views and while approaching the year end, there was the offer followed by negotiations masterfully handled by Scott. Throughout the entire process, GHST had a smooth way of providing updates via e-mail, and Scott was there anytime we needed additional info. The closing was handled professionally and all the issues were addressed in a tactful manner. Highly recommended !

                  - dan bunescu Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Marion, IA.
                • Our realtor, Michael Stines, was very helpful in getting us through the purchase process. While I picked out the house we ultimately ended up purchasing after he arranged several visits to other properties that helped us figure out what we liked, as first-time home buyers, it was very helpful to have someone experienced walk us through the process. The final purchase process went very smoothly with Michael's help.

                  - alphaerudite Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Cedar Rapids, IA.
                • I worked with Michael Stines during my home buying process and it all went very well. It was made very clear to me early on that he had my best interest throughout the entire process and was going to make sure it went as smoothly as possible. The process was very painless and it was made very easy for me to understand pros and cons of each situation, and when I ultimately decided on a home it was a quick and easy close.

                  - larimcaa Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Cedar Rapids, IA.
                • She helped my girlfriend and myself into our first house. She is extremely friendly and great to work with. She didn't try to sugar coat anything and told us nothing but truth. We Will definitely look to Denise on our next purchase.

                  - jclange97 Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Wellington Heights, Cedar Rapids, IA.
                • Michael Stines of GHST helped me purchase my condo just recently. He helped me find the perfect home for my boys and for myself. His negotiation skills were spot on. Michael made the purchasing a new home as painless as possible and explained every step with great detail. When or if I purchase another home I will use Michael again in the future.

                  - Matt Kamoos
                • We worked with Chad (of the Graf Home Selling Team & Assoc) to find a home and we couldn't have been blessed with a better agent! We had a small time window to find a place, close, and move out of our apartment without signing a new lease and Chad did a great job to help us achieve that goal. If you want a dependable agent who is there to answer any of your questions and find the perfect home I would recommend asking for Chad!

                  - Katie Clubb
                • We had no issues with the Graf Home Selling Team whatsoever and recommend them wholeheartedly . They were always willing and able to make time to meet us, to walk through a home, or simply give us advice along the way. As new home owners, we never felt blindsided by anything and felt we always had the necessary information and guidance to make an educated decision. We are grateful to Alison and the Graf Home Selling Team for their help in making a complicated process manageable to someone new to buying a home!

                  - Dylan Cronk
                • Layne Samuelson and the Graf home team was essential to my first home buying experience. He negotiated each stage seamlessly and when bumps came up he went above and beyond to make sure my interests were protected. I cannot imagine what this process would have been like without his expertise. I 100% recommend the Graf home team for any real estate need!

                • My wife and I have purchased a home for our youngest daughter and a new home for ourselves over the past year and Allison Kauffman represented us for both transactions. I would recommend Allison and the Graf Team to anyone that wants a straight forward home buying process with no surprises. Allison is very prompt and will work extremely hard to help make your home buying process as simple as possible.

                • We used GHST to list our home via Mike and find our new home with Nick. Both were excellent in their knowledge of what we needed to do for our home to have the most eyes possible on it and to sell. Nick was great at listening to our (ever evolving) list of needs and wants for a new home and showed us a ton of great options. Not only did he show great homes that hit our checklists but he was very helpful in pointing out details of the homes both good and bad so we could be fully informed. They've acted as true partners for us and we wouldn't have any reservations recommending them to our friends and family.

                  - Wiggaar
                • My husband and I contacted Chad Tiedemann about 10 months ago. We told him we were looking at moving back to Iowa from Oregon but we didn't have any definite move times yet. We asked him to look for 2 homes one for us and one for our sons family. Chad kept in touch with us over the months, never pushing us to make decisions. He was always available and willing to work with us. We were back in August and he showed us as many houses as we could look at, had lots of good options all with the knowledge we were not ready to buy yet. When we sold our home in Oregon in April and were ready to buy he did an awesome job finding us great choices. Chad was great to work with and helped us find and close on a home we love. The process was easy and painless. Chad was super helpful throughout the entire process. We love our new home and Chad continues to look for the perfect home for our sons family. Thank you Chad and Graf Home Selling Team I would definitely recommend Chad and your team for any real-estate needs.

                • Cindy (of the Graf Home Selling Team & Associates) helped my fiance and I find our first home. She was so responsive and attentive to our requests and needs. I would text her that I wanted to look at a house and she had an appointment set within an hour or so for us to see it. When looking at homes she always helped us with the pros and cons and put emphasis on the things we may not have noticed being first time home buyers. I would recommend Cindy to my friend and family in a heartbeat.

                  - Andrew Forsyth
                • Cindy (of the Graf Home Selling Team & Associates) is very friendly and organized. When she didn't immediately know the answer to a question, we could always count on her to follow through, giving us an answer as soon as possible.

                  - Marty McClurg
                • We had the best experience with Denise! This is our first home buying experience and she made it a super easy and quick buying experience. We will always recommend her!
