To Whom it May Concern,

Kurt and Jana just recently sold my home for me in Des Moines, IA. These two are the REAL DEAL..... I can not say enough good things about them! I would challenge anyone to find a more knowledgeable realtor. Not only did they basically get me full asking price after only about 2 weeks of it being listed, it was completely effortless on my part and I know it wasn't on their end! I would not hesitate referring anyone to them, whether it is buying or selling a home! Thank you Kurt and Jana!

To Potential Clients of the Schade's

Kurt and Jana were outstanding as a team! Kurt's knowledge of the profession   and market and Jana's ability and dedication to accomplish tasks are second   to none! Their communication skills were outstanding! Being a licensed   REALTOR® myself always makes it more difficult because of being so demanding!   They fulfilled every request that we made. Des Moines is loaded with talented,   caring, knowledgeable REALTORS®, these are two of the Best!!

To Whom It May Concern,

Recently, my wife and I sold our home and purchased our "Dream Home" with the assistance of our Realtor, Kurt Schade. We listed our home during an extremely slow real estate market. The one thing we appreciated most was the complete market research and the honesty Kurt had in setting our expectations when selling our house during this market. He diligently watched the comparative properties and pursued all opportunities to properly market our property.

The process was very comfortable knowing that we had one of the most experienced Realtors in the business. The experience was invaluable when purchasing our new home. Many things occurred during the purchase of our new home that were not typical to normal real estate transactions. Kurt’s experience allowed us to navigate the unusual and make it seem usual. This allowed us to purchase our "Dream Home" feeling secure and knowing everything was done correctly.

As you chose your Realtor, please consider the following three things:  HONESTY, INTEGRITY, and EXPERIENCE. Kurt exemplifies all three of these attributes, while making the process comfortable and enjoyable.

Hi Kurt,

Hope to find you well!  We are so delighted with our new home. We are going on three months living in our new house and have been enjoying every bit of making it home and adding our own touch to it. The house is located in a great community - friendly and welcoming neighbors, plenty of kids running around – and our kids are enjoying their new schools and making friends with the neighborhood kids. We are thrilled to have made the decision to purchase this home and love everything about it.

We are also glad that we decided to have you represent us as our Realtor. From the very beginning, you struck us as a friendly, genuine, and insightful Realtor who cared about our family’s needs and what we sought in a home. We are truly thankful and appreciative for all the time you spent with us, helping us find a home that felt right, as well as your patience throughout the process for some very busy people – like us!  We must have viewed close to 30 houses throughout the process. We also appreciate the kindness you demonstrated to the family. The kids absolutely enjoyed going to your office and indulging on the snacks that you so kindly offered while we talked. The kids were even a bit disappointed when we no longer had to go house hunting since they enjoyed going to see houses and hearing you talk about the houses. I think they might be home experts by now as even they learned quite a bit about homes from you! We are especially grateful to you for making our experience as first-time home buyers a smooth and enjoyable one.

You are a phenomenal Realtor, and we were fortunate to have had you take this journey with us. We could not have chosen a more experienced, kind, insightful, and devoted realtor, such as you, to represent us.  If I could ever serve as a reference, please feel free to contact me. I will be delighted to do so. Any person interested in purchasing a home should have as good and positive an experience as we did with you. We will most definitely recommend you to our friends and colleagues as we are confident they will be in great hands. Lastly, thank you for the closing gift.

We look forward to staying in touch and building on our new found friendship. We must have you and yours over for dinner sometime in the near future.

All the best – The Benitez Family

Michael and Arianna Benitez
