Anne Aguirre
Coldwell Banker Real Estate Professionals
About Anne

Hello. I'm Anne! And I'm so glad you're here. Whether you're looking to buy, sell, or are just following for "someday, maybe'....I'm here to help. When looking to buy or sell a home, you need someone with the knowledge and expertise to navigate the market- but more than that, you need someone you can trust....someone willing to go above and beyond...someone that recognizes the uniqueness of every person and situation. So let's take an otherwise overwhelming process, break it down, and take it one step at a time...together. I offer free consultations; no commitment and no obligation- just a low-key chance to meet, chat and get to know one another. Originally a West Coast girl, I moved to Iowa with my family and now I’m a Hawkeye! I’m also a music lover, nature enthusiast, foodie, education junkie, community promoter and people connector. I LOVE EVERYTHING THAT IS REAL ESTATE – the relationships, the hustle (you really have to move fast!) and the challenge... but mostly, I LOVE MY CLIENTS. My favorite part is delivering them results. I enjoy building relationships with my clients – relationships built on trust. Sometimes it’s necessary to share confidential information with me, and you can trust I’ll always act in your best interest and keep your personal information private. When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my family and friends. I love being a cheerleader for my kids. I enjoy traveling and exploring Midwest music festivals and concerts with my husband, Gabe. But enough about ME, let’s talk about YOU! If you’re buying or selling a home, let’s turn wish lists into real results-and have some fun along the way!
