I would choose Hilary to be our realtor over and over again. She was recommended to me by a friend and she will be my first call if we ever need to buy or sell in the future. She knows the Des Moines area well and has "a guy" for everything. She is skilled at house pricing and identifying how much wiggle room there might be when negotiating. She was also able to help us identify potential issues/benefits of a home while we were looking at houses (old/new water heater, furnace, siding material, etc.), which was great because we are first-time buyers.
The best thing about Hilary is her responsiveness. She responds quickly whenever you want to go visit a house. I never worried that she forgot about me and I never felt bad about asking her questions. She went above and beyond to ensure every part of our home purchase went quickly and smoothly. She's also just a great human who we enjoyed getting to know throughout the process!
