100 6th St., Ames, IA 50010
I am pleased to have this opportunity to recommend Ben Engelman to anyone seeking a new home in Ames IA and the surrounding area. Ben has all the qualities you would wish for in a realtor - extensive knowledge of the local property market, whether a property represents true value or not and what its attractions and drawbacks are. My family and I were new to Ames and were open-minded about whether to buy new, find an attractive lot and build or seek value in an older property with untapped potential. Ben Engelman had all the bases covered and often introduced us to opportunities before they were generally available. Just what you need. In your dealings with him, you will find Ben to be both attentive and personable and he will respond promptly to any query or problem that arises. At the end of the process not only will you be entirely satisfied with the advice and guidance of Ben Engelman - you will also know that you have a new friend.
Tony and his team were excellent to work with! Tony is clearly on top of everything. He took the time to understand our needs and was very accessible and accommodating, which took off the pressure and stress of getting our new property. He is also very transparent, giving us all the details we need to make the best decision for us. He does what's best for the client and guides you through the process with exquisite detail. We couldn’t have done it without his help and will 100% plan to work with them in the future.
We had a great experience with Zac Runyon in the purchase of our home in south Ames. He was very easy to work with - not pushing us in ways that we didn't want to go, yet offering helpful advice when we asked for it. We would recommend Zac!
Ben was so helpful in finding a perfect home for my fiance and I to buy. As first time home buyers, we did not know the process or even how to start looking. Ben helped us out with all of it and made the process so easy for us. He was honest about what we could afford and what we should be looking for and was always available for questions either through email or even texting. Thanks so much Ben for your help! We could not have found a better agent to work with us.
Thank you Ben and team for handling our somewhat difficult home sale with so much ease and professionalism! We don't know what we would have done without you in our corner.
Jon understood the type of property Monica and I where looking for and continued to monitor the market watching for an opportunity for us. After about 1 year, Jon saw a property that matched our requirements, he contacted us and led us through the negotiation to a successful purchase. Jon gave me good advice and kept me grounded as my desire to own this property grew. We will always be grateful to Jon for staying diligent and helping me to focus. THANKS JON.
I could not have made it through our selling and buying process without Ben!! He did so much more than help us sell and buy! He was our consultant, advisor, therapist, and problem solver, even after we had purchased our new home and moved in!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him (and his whole team) to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
My wife and I enjoy looking at houses and investment properties for sale online so we feel we have a good idea of what is available but unfortunately we weren't finding anything we liked. Jon found us a duplex that we had overlooked. It was exactly what we were looking for! He was there every step of the way and on top of every detail. Closing went smoothly and he even followed up with us a week later to see how the place was working out. A fantastic and smooth experience!
Ben was great through the whole thing. He listened to what we wanted and worked hard to find it. He was always available for questions and if he didn't know the answers he quickly found out. I would definitely recommend Ben and his team!
We have worked with Jon both as a listing and buying agent and found him an amazing realtor to work with. His energy and enthusiasm helped us have the motivation to get the house ready and place it on the market. We relied on his knowledge and expert guidance, for correct pricing and staging, so that our home would sell quickly with less stress. He really cares for his customers, whether they are looking for a starter home or a more expensive home, and wants to help them find the home that suits their needs.
Jon assured that I had a wonderful experience in selling my home. He and his team personally assisted in getting my home in the best possible condition to list. My home had a non-traditional design and went on the market at an off peak time, creating lots of additional marketing challenges. Despite all of this, he was able to find just the right buyer and it was sold within two months of listing it.
Ben was fantastic to work with. During what was an abnormal negotiation for the purchase of my new home, Ben went out of his way to make the deal happen. He worked tirelessly to complete the deal when it looked as if it was going to fall apart at the last minute. I placed my full trust in Ben and he did not disappoint! Even after the purchase was complete, Ben still made himself available to assist me in whatever I needed. He stands by his principles and has made a great name for himself. Ben was also fantastic on the selling end of things as well. He knows the market well and he uses this knowledge to price homes to sell. Throughout the entire process he kept in touch with me regularly which was a relief. Ben also has a great many contacts in the area which proved to be a great asset during the process. I would use Ben again without hesitation and after this process, I would consider him a friend.
Jon did a great job helping put together a complex deal with buyers and sellers. His ability to find interested and capable parties resulted in a win win for all involved. Everything worked smoothly on a tight time line - fantastic!
John and Ben and the entire team worked their butts off help me get my house sold. They were creative, responsive, diligent and always kept me in the loop. So happy I decided to trust John and his team with my property.
You can’t go wrong with these folks. Jon was amazing. Knowledgeable, helpful. And truly invested in me finding the best home.
The Engelman brothers came highly recommended to us. We see now why. Their attention to detail, patience, and helpfulness made the process less stressful. They are the kind of people you want on your side as you're purchasing a home! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Thanks for all the help! You guys were phenomenal.
Ben, Jon and Abby are EXCELLENT !!!! Selling our home couldn't have been any easier and more perfect. We are SO happy that they consented to help us with the sale of our home. Super great family. We feel very lucky to know them and to have worked with them for our home sale. Everything went smoothly. They are experts in real estate. If you want success you need to contact them quickly. They have the friendly touch and their knowledge is way above excellent. Thanks to them for making or lives SO rich.
I worked with Ben a couple months ago with the idea of selling my house in the near future. He did a walk through with me and gave me a lot of good ideas on what I can improve in the house before we actually put it on the market. He was very honest and had a lot of good ideas. Ben is really easy to work with and he gives a lot of confidence in the selling process, which can often be stressful.
I'm a very difficult person to deal with and very results oriented. Ben never took my pressure personally and responded well. I have never gave 5 stars. Only one person earned 5 stars and he walked on water. Ben is an honest guy and great man of character. His wheel house is in negotiations during the buying process. We found our forever location. It took 3 years to wait for it but we finally got to buy our acreage my wife and I will grow old together in.
I have lived and worked in several countries both buying and building homes. Ben is undoubtedly the best realtor I’ve worked with. He has been invaluable in providing pragmatic guidance, patient negotiating skills and a friendly courteous customer approach. Ben is an absolute pleasure to work with. I would unhesitatingly recommend him.
Jon & his team were wonderful to work with in listing & selling my home. They go the extra mile in all aspects. Whether you are selling your home or buying a home, their team will get the job done for you. They are professional, resourceful & cheerful throughout the process. I would highly recommend them.
Showed us lots of options including the advantages and disadvantages of the types of properties we were looking at. Took us all over the city to help us find what we were looking for.
We just bought our second home through Ben and his team. He is very knowledgeable and very tactful and I would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy a property in central Iowa!
