    • Our house was sold quickly! The house was empty, but the professional pictures really showed the quality features and how unique the house was compared to others on the market in this range. Communication from the team was professional and they responded quickly to our questions. Very flexible in options to list the house. They found the perfect buyer for our property and it resulted in a quick 30 day buying process.

    • Deb Kurtz was very personable and was "on our team" throughout the whole process. She always returned our phone calls in a timely manner and did an excellent job of researching for the answers to the questions we had regarding the property. We would definitely use her services again and would recommend her to others looking to purchase property in the Des Moines area.Thank you for asking for our feedback.Terry and Jane Johnson Ann Johnson and Jesse Stock

    • Misty is the BEST! When other realtors couldn't come close to selling our home, Misty crafted a plan that significantly increased traffic through the house and ultimately the sale. More importantly, she put up with a very difficult customer, and did so with a smile on her face. Always positive, always professional. I would recommend her to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

      - 02/16/2015 - rkp1701
    • They were very helpful throughout the entire home buying process! They kept in touch with us weekly, to touch base on how we were coming along up until closing!

      - 02/21/2015 - asmall05
    • From the first showing with our agent to the closing on our house Nathan was the best. We felt comfortable with him; he was very knowledgeable and listened to what we wanted in our next home. Leah was also very helpful and available when we had questions regarding the closing process. Together they were the best. I would recommend the Misty SOLDwisch team highly. Thank You!

    • Misty's team was easy to work with and got our house sold the first weekend on the market. We were also able to work with the team on finding our dream home and they assisted us with the purchase of our new home.

    • I worked with Nathan Lyman and couldn't have had a better experience as a first time home buyer. He was very personal and made sure all the needs that I asked for in my home were met. There were quite a bit of homes that we went through and Nathan was always updating and finding new options for me. I also appreciated the fact that he was always quick to respond and took care of any issues or concerns that I had. I would recommend anyone to him or anyone else from the Misty SOLDwisch Team, and look forward to working with them down the road on my next home.

    • Working with Teresa Woods has been a wonderful experience for us as first time home buyers. We were dreading the experience of searching for homes, bidding against others and dealing with bad inspections, but she helped us find the PERFECT home in a neighborhood we didn't even know we could afford. She was extremely helpful throughout the process and handled all of my calls (I'm a worrier!) and questions with ease. Even Leah, the transaction coordinator, was awesome at keeping us updated on the process on her end, including closing date changes. We are so pleased with our experience and would recommend Teresa Woods and the Misty SOLDwisch team to anyone looking for a smooth home buying process!

Thank you for all u have done for us.

    • I changed reality companies after my home was on the market for 9 months. Misty understood that I needed closure in my situation and could not continue to maintain two homes. In the first 2 weeks, my home was shown more times than it had been in the previous 9 months. In less than 3 months, I had an offer and sold my home. All of the inspections went through without significant complications and I was informed of each and every step during the closing process. In addition, The Misty SOLDwisch Team worked to accommodate my absence on closing day. Would've, could've, should've listed my house with The Misty SOLDwisch Team from the start. They were awesome!

    • Karla Derrickson was our agent and she was amazing! She spent the time we needed (and more) to help us find a home in a short period of time. She worked so hard I actually don't know how she did it. I would recommend her in a second!

      - 04/03/2015 - reblynn2
    • Very professional team. They were very proactive and diligent in giving me honest feedback and suggestions throughout the sale of my home. I gave them keys of my house and have them take care of every aspect of showing and sale . everything went flawlessly. great people to work with. I will definitely recommend them to my friends and will utilize their help for future sales and buyings.

    • Misty Soldwisch team sold the estate home of our parents. The home was sold quickly and at a fair price. Our experience was professional and honest. Were I a resident of the Des Moines area, I would not hesitate to use them again.

    • Misty and her team were amazing. The photos were gorgeous and the listing was well written. My house sold in 3 hours. They were well organized and kept me informed along the way. They are Incredibly responsive. They did it all. If you are buying or selling in the Des Moines --- the Misty Soldwich team is the one to choose.

      - 04/03/2015 - brennan corbett
    • We met with Misty and determined our listing price. Our house was shown 8 times the first nine days and we received four offers. Misty was very aggressive posting our listing on virtually every available site.

    • The Misty SOLDwisch team made the home selling process easy. In the beginning my expectations were set for price and how much to expect for my proceeds at closing. I really liked knowing in advance an estimate of how much money I would have in the end. No hidden surprises. They were helpful with getting my house staged to be inviting for potential buyers. We had a prelisting inspection done and a home owner's warranted started. Both excellent selling points for the house. The team set both of these in motion for me, all I had to do is say yes I wanted to have these done. The team alerted me ahead of time for the house showings and other appointments such as the appraisal and termite inspection. They took care of it all and made sure I was kept in the know through the whole process. I am looking foward to having the team assist me in finding my dream acreage now. If you are buying or selling a home I highly recommend you contact Misty SOLDwisch.

    • My experience with Misty and her team was exceptional. They sat with me and explained in detail everything I would need to expect during the process of selling my home. They were in contact with me and updated me on comments from prospective buyers and gave me hints and ideas that I could do to help the process. When we got the offer, Misty was right on top of it and going through everything with me. Her closing department is exceptional, they would call and email me immediately of the progress of the closing. I would recommend Misty and her team to anyone buying or selling a home in the area. They are very knowledgeable of the market in the area. I cannot say enough good things and how professional this team is. I have had 3 other homes in my life and never felt the professionalism that I felt with Misty and her team, when buying or selling a home.

    • The team was great to work with through every step along the way. They were proactive in letting us know what would happen next and quick to respond to questions. As first time home buyers, I have heard many nightmare stories, but with the Misty SOLDwisch team we were able to avoid any trouble.

    • Our experience was great! Rene set up showings quickly that worked in our schedule. She was very knowledgeable about things and helped us in the best way possible!

    • From the beginning the Misty SOLDwisch team was AMAZING!!!! Rene was very helpful finding us our first home and very helpful through the negotiation process and keeping us updated! We can't thank the The Misty SOLDwisch team enough for all their hard work!

    • Misty and her team did a great job with both the sale and purchase of our homes. Misty was great to work with. At our initial meeting, she walked through our home and provided suggestions to make it more appealing to buyers. Much to my surprise, Misty sold our townhouse within a month and Rene helped us purchase our new home within a week of that offer. When our first choice in homes was gone before we were even able to make an offer, Rene found another home for us to look at that was an even better match to our wish list. Leah did a fantastic job keeping us updated as to the progress on both the sale and purchase of our homes. We received weekly updates from her which kept us very well informed. Overall, I was very pleased with the service we received from The Misty SOLDwisch Team. They were exceptional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to my family and friends.

    • We recently purchased a home from Misty and our experience was terrific. Our relator Deb and her worked fabulously together. The house that we got had originally had a different offer pending but when those clients withdrew their bid we were able to get in and see the house that day!! We closed in less than 30 days which was amazing! We love our house! We are selling our other house and feel very confident about listing it with Misty

      - 05/13/2015 - tracylbedford
    • We listed our townhouse with Misty as we were living out of state and using it as a rental property and just wanted to get it sold. We have bought and sold numerous houses and this by far was the smoothest sale we have ever had. Misty and her team responded immediately to any of our questions and did so many things for us that went above and beyond what was expected. We had a couple items after the inspection that needed repaired, and her staff found us people to repair them without us having to call around to arrange for someone to do these repairs, but also meet them at the residence to let them in. After receiving an offer, Misty helped with our counter offer as we would have probably taken much less without her guidance. Closing was a dream with all the paperwork sent to us with very clear instructions on where to sign and how to return. We would highly recommend Misty and her team! They are the best!

    • I recently worked with Teresa on buying a house in the Des Moines area. I was a first time home buyer, and Teresa was very patient and helpful in helping us navigate the steps we needed to follow. I felt comfortable asking her any questions I had or for her advice. She was very responsive and had great recommendations for lenders and insurance agents as well. I would definitely recommend working with Teresa and the Misty SOLDwisch team.

    • Smooth process with our realtor, Nathan Lyman. He kept us up to speed every step of the way. Appreciate the broad network of contacts that helped get our home sold in a month!! Highly recommend the Misty Soldwisch Team!!

    • We were very new to the home-buying experience, we weren't really sure what to expect. We had a great experience with our realtor. He walked us through the whole process and helped us find the perfect home. He was very prompt and knowledgeable. Very quick to answer all of our questions, and there were quite a few. A lot of the time we could see a house on the same day we requested. We couldn't be happier. We love our house more and more every day.

    • As first time home buyers, we had no idea what to expect or do. From our first accepted offer falling through, until the day of signing on our home, Josiah was so great and went WAY above and beyond to help us with our search. We couldn't have asked for a better agent, and appreciate everything he and the Misty SOLDwisch Team did to help us out!

    • We attempted to sell our home once before and had over 50 people walk through the home with no offers. A part of that was due to the times, but we were likely overpriced as well. This year we got excited again about the possibility of selling and moving into the house we intended to stay. I looked for someone specifically that has done a lot of volume and had good reviews. Misty and her team sat down with us and were very honest. Initially we decided not to pursue selling, but 3 months later changed our mind. We used Misty and her team on the selling and buying side. We sold our home in two days and found the home we were looking for in one day. Within 60 days we listed the one home and were living in the next. While our situation may be unique, the knowledge and negotiation was more than worth it.

    • Misty Soldwisch and team sat us down and explained the selling process. They explained things no one else had and answered all of our questions. Our phone calls were always returned. Our house sold one day being on the market, Karla worked a holiday weekend to negotiate! She was very patient and was always willing to sit down and discuss options. We bought our new home thru the Soldwisch team. Teresa was able to show us every home we wanted to look at and was very detail oriented. We recieved emails keeping us up to date on the buying and selling processes almost weekly. We went through 3 realtors before finding Misty Soldwisch and team. We learned so much and always felt welcome.

    • I found a home that need some renovation and repairs, the entire team was so helpful throughout the entire process. They went above and beyond my expectations from a realtor, I'm so happy with the way the whole process went.

    • The Misty Soldwisch ReMax team are top notch. They sold my house in just a bit over a month. From the first visit to my home to the day we signed the closing papers they were worked feverishly to promote my home and bring a buyer to the table. I had worked with other realtors who thought I needed to do all sorts of things to make my home more attractive to buyers, but not the ReMax team. They did all the work and I got my house sold in record time. They were always there to answer any questions or concerns I had as quickly as possible. Thank you Misty, Nathan and Leah you were wonderful. I only wish I had another house to sell so I could do all over again. Thanks again!

    • They made the process of selling my condo so easy! Nathan and the rest of the team were always there to answer my questions and help in anyway they could! I would highly recommend this company to anyone! Wonderful experience all around!

    • To tell you the truth, I didn't know what to expect when I contacted The Misty Soldwisch Team. Rene' was a God Send. From the very beginning to the signing of the mortgage, she was there. There wasn't a question that I asked that she didn't answer with fact and good sound advice. Actually, Rene' showed such passion for her job, I almost got emotional when the process was completed. She had almost become a part of our family. I would recommend the Soldwisch Team in particular Rene', to anyone that is looking for a home to purchase. Let Rene' know what you're looking for in a home and she will go on a search and won't stop until you're satisfied. GO RENE'!

    • The Misty SOLDwisch team was wonderful in helping us purchase our first home. Our realtor really listened to our wish list and was very quick to get us into houses; especially ones we picked out to see. When it came to putting in an offer, our realtor was helpful as she explained what was going to happen and the things that we needed to do in order to help it go smoothly. Throughout the closing process, they kept us informed and followed through all the way until we received the keys to our new home. We loved working with the Misty SOLDwisch team and would highly recommend them.

    • For being a first time home buyer I relied on a lot of help from Deb. And Deb was more than willing to answer all my questions. She was very understanding and helpful. I would recommend Deb to anyone wanting to buy a house. I give her herself a 5 star rating.

    • The process of selling our home and purchasing our new home was made so much easier thanks to Ambria and the Misty Soldwisch team. They were always available for our needs and they made lots of things happen that seemed to be impossible!

      - 08/04/2015 - tigerluv02
    • After previously listing with another well-known local agent that seemed content to sit on his/her laurels, we were contacted by Misty's team to re-list. We ended up staging the home (we had already moved out), due to a unique layout, and following some minor suggestions the house sold in under 2 months. While the sale was pending, we were on a three week trip and out of the state, and had a potentially huge issue with water due to sump pump failure and heavy rains. Karla, our point-of-contact on Misty's team, was on top of the situation and arranged for the water remediation, as well as inspection follow-up work.... she went far beyond anything I had experienced in the past from a realtor!! We are so relieved (and grateful) to have had such a wonderful team working for us!

    • Helped us find a home in a very fast manner. Realtor listened to what we wanted and got us to see the places requested in a very timely manner. Enjoyed working with the realtor. Website was easy to use and find homes, realtor followed along to out likes/dislikes.

    • After working with two agents who represented other agencies I partnered with Josiah who is a member of The Misty SOLDwisch Team and successfully secured a property. Josiah was not only available he provided expertise and completely had my back. I look forward to our partnership in the future.

    • After finally convincing my wife that we needed to down size from our small acreage and 6 bedroom house, now we needed to find a realtor. The thought of selling and buying on our own was too much for us to even consider. I spent many hours researching realtors online and that is where I found the MistySOLDwisch team. I compared their numbers to others and obviously they are doing something right. We met with our listing agent Karla and were very happy with how she handled the whole ordeal. My wife broke her foot 2 weeks in and she was great about scheduling the different things needed to make life easier for my wife. Because of my wife's broken foot Mia, our buying agent, went above and beyond accommodating our new house search. She was the perfect match as she got to know us well enough that I felt very comfortable when my wife and her found the house we were looking for. When they finally found it multiple offers were already coming in and I trusted her enough to help my wife make the decision to put in the offer to purchase it. With the market moving so quickly you snooze you lose. I walked thru the next day and could not have been more pleased. It just felt like home for the next chapter in our lives. Kudos to the Misty SOLDwisch team throughout the whole selling and buying experience. We were kept updated on all the processes taking place and no way would I want to try that on my own. If you want a realtor who is always there for you then this team is for you. Sincerely, Dave and Kim Allen Des Moines
