About Misty

Here is a video telling you all about me & my team: https://youtu.be/E_F6g2lj3Pg "My goal is to take every individual step of the real estate process and make it BETTER than what everyone else does—to provide the BEST service, preparation, options and advice for our clients!" Licensed to sell real estate since 2000, I have been a Broker/Owner since 2007. I enjoy the challenge and the honor of helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals with my team of dedicated agents who all have specialized roles for their part of the real estate process. I also love the opportunity to work with my husband Keith as Chief Operations Officer for our business—we have been married since 1995, and have 4 kids together. While I had great success with my prior brand affiliations (I was the No.1 Team Leader for 4 years), I jumped at the opportunity to partner in 2017 with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate. It is an incredible combination of a trusted, quality brand backed by a media powerhouse – great technology, grounded in the traditions of home!

Mariah Klemp
Remax Concepts
About Mariah

My passion for real estate began at 8 years old. Every Sunday I cut out the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier "Home Plan of the Week" and collected them in a big drawer. I would spend hours pouring over these plans when I had the time, dreaming about one day selling these gorgeous homes. Fast forward many years later and here I am, living out my dream career with the same passion I had as a child. I have the knowledge, skill, motivation, and determination to help my clients through all their real estate transactions in a seamless manner. My enthusiasm and energy will help make the real estate buying and selling process an exciting experience for all, from the first meeting all the way to the closing table. There is truly no better feeling than handing over the keys to a brand new homeowner, watching all your hard work pay off to help someone accomplish the American Dream of owning a home. I love my clients and I would love to assist you with all your real estate needs.
