My Client Testimonials

    "If you are looking for an incredibly honest, kind and talented real estate partner who puts you first over everything and is an absolute pro, look no further than Rose Green. Rose made the buying and selling process so seamless; from day one, she made us feel so comfortable. She has this special ability to remove any stress you may have about buying and selling a home - in fact, she actually makes it fun and exciting! I never thought I could say that, but with Rose, it's true. Rose's attention to detail, organization and insanely impressive knowledge of the market paid dividends for us. She is one talented woman, and because of her talent and connections, she was able to really go to bat for us. Her ability to increase our ROI was amazing. She truly has your interests front and center, and will bend over backwards to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Stop your search immediately, and call Rose Green. You won't find a better realtor and partner." - Courtney + Chris L.
    "We truly enjoyed our experience with Rose. She helped us sell our previous home and purchase our new home, and both transactions were incredibly smooth. Not only was she a skilled negotiator, but she also helped us to make sure our previous home was in its best condition to hit the market. Her marketing strategies were effective, impactful, and reached a wide audience, and after a successful open house with several offers, we felt confident in selling to a new family. Both the purchase of our new home and selling of our previous home occurred in the timespan of a few weeks, but Rose eased our stress and helped us feel confident and comfortable with the transactions. We're so happy in our new home!"- Erica + Jonathan S.
    "We chose Rose to sell our home when faced with relocating to another city. Her insight into the local market, her expertise on how to price our home and her willingness to take the initiative to help us prep our home before we went on the market separated Rose from every other realtor. We received multiple offers within a few days of putting our home on the market. Our experience with Rose was fantastic and we would recommend Rose to all our friends and family." - Holly + Todd C.
    "We would highly recommend Rose to anyone looking for a realtor in Des Moines. We were first time home buyers, and Rose was extremely patient and helpful, even though our preferences changed quite a bit through the search process. She was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable. The best thing we can say about Rose is that we never had the slightest doubt that she had our best interest in mind. She had our complete trust. Even though we asked a lot of her, she always maintained a cheerful and encouraging attitude. She did a great job so we won't be buying a house for a while, but if we did we would call Rose again without any hesitation!" - Sarah + Tyler T.
    "We are incredibly fortunate to have worked with Rose. She is exceptional! She took the time to truly understand what we were looking for in a home -- from amenities, style, and pricing, to the kind of neighborhood vibe we desired. Her knowledge of the real estate industry and specific neighborhoods helped us narrow our ideas and options. Rose went far beyond our expectations of a realtor to help us find the right home for our family. Her relationships, as well as her involvement in the community, are distinguishing and proved to be invaluable to our search -- we were often the first to obtain a walk-through in sought-after houses. She brings a level of wisdom from her expertise and experience that were critical to navigating timely decisions and negotiations. Rose is savvy, resourceful, and was fully invested in the process. We are grateful for the seemingly endless effort she put forth to help us find and purchase our home. Rose has the kind of energy, knowledge, and attentiveness that would be an asset to any client. We would work with her a million times over." - Olivia + Josh E.
    "As first-time home-buyers, we do not have enough good things to say about Rose Green! We met Rose when we were poking around open houses. Despite the property having just received an offer and that we hadn't taken any serious steps toward buying yet. Rose gave us her full attention, welcomed our questions and suggested next steps for us, whenever we were ready to begin our search in earnest. We had run across several agents but Rose was the clear choice for us to work with. From embarking together on our official search where we talked through expectations of our realtor/homebuyer relationship (remember, first-timers!), through pulling the trigger on our home, Rose was everything you could ever ask for. She truly listened to our must-haves/deal-breakers and explored many options with us, asking astute questions and perceptively fine-tuning the scope of our search. When an intriguing home appeared on Zillow, Rose got us in to see it the very next morning. It had so much going for it and, naturally, a couple strikes against. Rose never pushed us into making the buy; she offered insight where we asked, and counseled us if she saw issues that would require expense. She is so intrinsically forthright in all aspects of her business and character that we trust her 100% and, with such a huge purchase, can't speak highly enough of that peace of mind. We made an offer. Rose was a good negotiator and we were pleased with the final agreement. She paid attention to details all the way through close; when one of the numbers was off, she addressed it on the spot. We've been in touch with Rose ever since and are looking forward to having her over finally, when the cold weather and covid have passed for a celebratory evening on our patio to thank her for her dogged, detail-oriented work with us, and all the figurative hand-holding she did for us! As first-time buyers especially, we enthusiastically, whole-heartedly recommend Rose. She will unquestionably take what can be a tense, frightening process and break it into clear, bite-sized steps, counseling with warmth, honesty and the utmost professionalism. Work with Rose - you will be SO GLAD you did!" - Kate R. + Sean G.
    "When our family outgrew our current home, I knew Rose would be the first person I would ask to assist us in finding a home to fit our needs. With a very competitive market, we did not have a lot of time between listing one home and putting an offer in on another. Rose showed up... made a few simple suggestions on getting our home ready to sell and had two offers before it went on the market. The buying process was just as easy! We looked at a couple houses, made an offer and it felt like 45 magical days later we were moving. I know this process wasn't as easy and magical for Rose as it was for us. We had a couple of very challenging situations arise. Rose handled them with complete professionalism and only involved us when absolutely necessary. If you are looking for a realtor that holds herself to high ethical standards, will take time to process any situation thrown at her, knows how to do her job and do it well... and has a great sense of humor- Rose is 100% the person for you!!" - Bobbie B.
    "Rose is an excellent realtor! She far exceeded the expectations my husband and I had as we set out to buy our first home. Rose was patient with our many questions. She went beyond brief answers and actually educated us on a variety of topics. She was very perceptive in knowing what houses we'd be most interested in and we never felt pressured to see something that didn'€™t fit our needs or budget. We always felt that Rose was a good advocate for us who had our best interests in mind. During the processes of making an offer and closing, she was very thorough and professional. Overall, we couldn'€™t have asked for a better experience. We recommend Rose to friends without hesitation, whether they are looking for a realtor or not!" - Jessica + Nick S.
    "Rose Green was a wonderful realtor to work with. She listened to my needs, wants, and dislikes, asking plenty of questions to make sure we were on the same page. Rose was quick to respond if I had questions, and sent me listings for exact matches and some that matched all but maybe one thing. Rose was also flexible around my schedule, but made sure we stayed right on top of new listings so I wouldn't accidentally miss out on an opportunity. My favorite thing about working with Rose was her honesty about her opinions and value of things, but not in a pushy way. She wanted to make sure that my home search and house-buying experience was positive and I wouldn't be left with any surprises. Rose even checked up on how things were going after I'd moved in. I have greatly appreciated her assistance and support." - Shannon A.
    "Rose was great to work with! The entire sales process went very smoothly from listing to closing. She was very knowledgable about the local market, including pricing my home fairly and accurately (had an offer in the first 48 hours) and quickly responded to any questions I had. She went above and beyond several times to keep the process on track. I'd highly recommend working with Rose!" - Catherine F.
    "We decided to sell our condo while we were out of state. Rose acted on our behalf making all arrangements involved in prepping the condo for sale including staging. She did a thorough market analysis and helped us to price the condo correctly selling it in four days. After inspection she did all the work to line up the needed corrections and follow up. She kept us informed of the process until closing. She has a very positive and professional attitude." - Sue + Loren K.
    "Working with Rose exceeded my expectations. She has an impressive level of knowledge around both the buying and selling processes. She is well-networked and well-respected in the Des Moines market, and goes to bat for her clients in the negotiation process. I was most impressed with her willingness to step in and help with things...literally anything...when things felt overwhelming when I was getting ready to sell. She was there with lunch, or to lend a helping hand with acquiring boxes, etc. SHE GOES THE EXTRA MILE. If you want to buy or sell a home without the stress of managing the ins and outs of the process, you should contact Rose Green!" - Annique K.
    "I'm not good at doing reviews, and normally won't write them. However, I feel like it's my duty to the world to spread praises for Rose Green. She is savvy, honest, and industrious. After our experience with her selling our property, I will never consider using any other realtor and will recommend her alone to anyone needing a referral. Her advice was correct every step of the way. She took care of everything that needed to get done to sell, things I had no idea about how to get done quickly, but she knew. She priced it right, knew what to expect, made sure we knew what to expect, and kept us meticulously informed. This review can't really do justice to how much I appreciate her guidance and hustle. My mantra during the selling process became "Let go. Let Rose." She really is the best." - Aaron + Jen V.
    "We found Rose to be an effective and diligent partner in our property purchase! She was very responsive and motivated, making the workload on our end minimal. She is positive, honest, and cares deeply about her clients! We have complete trust in Rose Green." - Lindsey + Jenny S.
    "We have purchased and sold a number of properties over the years and I wish we could have had Rose as our agent for every one. The rest of our agents seemed pretty good at the time, but Rose really raises the bar. She was amazing to work with and so personable. She was really knowledgeable about local properties, always happy to talk to other agents for more listing details, and excellent in negotiating. We appreciated how attentive she was and how much time she invested in making sure we chose the right property. It was also really nice to have an agent with such a broad breadth of information on single family homes and investment properties. We will definitely work with Rose on future properties." - Danielle + Seth R.
    "Rose has done an exceptional job for my family and helped us sell a family member's home after he became too ill to continue living there. She consistently went above and beyond expectations and was a pleasure to work with. I cannot convey how impressed I have been and how much I would recommend Rose for any real estate transaction!!" - John + Sara H.
    "Rose Green provided very attentive, thorough, knowledgeable and prompt service as our real estate agent. I feel she truly guided us though both the buying and selling processes. She far exceeded the basic requirements that an agent must have and devoted herself to us in a way that made us feel that she was our ally. In addition to that, she was very astute in understanding and respecting our personal preferences, which we believe is due to the good intuitive sense. She did all of this is a difficult real estate climate. We would recommend her without reservation to anyone buying or selling a home." - Amy C.
    "Rose was just wonderful. She really knew what was best for our family and was respectful when we had specific requests. Without a doubt the best realtor we have worked with. Highly recommended" - Laurie + Dan M.
    "Rose sold my house without listing it. I know it was a twist of fate but she learned someone was interest in our unit while we were still contemplating putting it on the market. For our purchase, she spent many hours with us and after the first day was completely in turn with our likes and dislikes. She was patient and helpful and we never felt rushed. This process has been flawless. For the stress of this life-altering situation, our experience with Rose has been the only part that was no hassle whatsoever." - Bonnie S.
    "Rose Green was everything a first-time home buyer could ask for: she was knowledgeable, patient and generous with her time. She took time to get to know me so that she could be my advocate in the process and filter properties that wouldn't suit me. I would recommend her to anyone being or selling a home. I have every intention of using Rose again for my next sale and purchase." - Dan O.
    "This was my first home purchase and Rose was very knowledgeable and helpful in walking me through the process. She made sure I understood what to expect at each step, and was available whenever I had any questions or concerns. She was really great and I would recommend her to anyone about to of through the home buying process." - Lauren H.
