Hi! I grew up in Pella and moved back home when I married my wife. I was an Industrial Arts teacher for 5 years. Now, I am committed to helping with all of your real estate needs. With that commitment, my wife and I have purchased 2 homes that we use as transitional rentals for people moving to town. If you are moving to the area and are interested in renting for a few months before purchasing a home, I might be able to be of assistance. Please call me if you have any questions or if I can help you in any way with your real estate needs.
Buying or selling a home is a big decision and having a real estate agent with experience and expertise makes the whole process much less stressful. I have been a Realtor for 17 years and prior to this, I worked 10 years for the USDA/Rural Development.
Understanding the ins and outs of the real estate business is what I do. I am plugged into the community everyday…networking, checking listings and working FULL-TIME for my clients. You should be able to focus on the important decisions and choices you need to make while I take care of the paperwork, inspections, timelines and details to make it all happen. Call me and I will show you what Pella and the surrounding communities have to offer!
