So my husband and I just closed on a house today. Our realtor, Ruthi, was very kind and helpful. She didn't pressure us into any house. She found houses that were fitting for our family needs. Ruthi was very determined to find the house for us and we are glad that we chose her as our realtor. We are very thankful for the time she gave us. Not to only find us a house, but to get to know us as well. My husband and I highly recommend choosing Ruthi as a realtor. She deserves more than 5 stars!!

"Throughout the past several years my husband and I have worked with
different realtors from varying agencies around town. Through it all we
discovered that the experience can be frustrating at times. Not so with
Michelle Purdum. Working with Michelle has been anything BUT frustrating.
She has always been very informative, upfront, and honest with us, often
calling just to let us know what she is doing to get the house sold. It is
a true pleasure to work with someone you know is working hard to get the
job done. While our experience took a little longer to yield the result we are hoping
for, one thing is clear - in working with Michelle, we have found a friend
for life."

"Michelle is an outstanding realtor.  She goes above and beyond what is expected of her.  When we were getting ready to put our house on the market she gave us some great pointers on how to make our house appealing to buyers.  After we decided to take down  a wallpaper border in our house, she offered to come and help us take it down!  In a relatively slow housing market, she sold our house in a month without loss in profit.

When we had questions, she was always very easy to reach and would do whatever was needed to get us an answer.

She got to know us and what we were looking for in a house.  Before a house even went on the market she told us that she had a house in mind that she knew we would love and was just waiting for it to be put on the market.  We immediately fell in love with the house (just like she knew that we would!) and that is the house that we bought.

We would highly recommend Michelle Purdum to anyone that is looking for a realtor in Mahaska County!"

"Michelle demonstrated good knowledge of the geographic area and the market.  She had excellent knowledge of the homes she showed us.  Also, she is just a very confident and upbeat person, so it was fun working with her.  She never had a doubt that her search was going to get us into the perfect home for us.  That helped us breath a little easier."
