About Kurt

  • As a full time associate, I am supported by an entire team of marketing professionals to support you and your transaction. This team includes my assistant, Samantha Jones, and a full time Concierge. We can accommodate the many details of your transaction.
  • I have been a trusted member of the Des Moines area real estate community since 1976. I have continued to enjoy success in the business even through the amazing rollercoaster ride of real estate in the last 3+ decades by being a highly aggressive agent.
  • I have continued to be consistent helping many clients buy or sell. When I am working for you, I will provide you feedback after every showing and your home will be on nearly 80 websites as well as the nation’s 2 largest websites for home searches.
  • I have represented an incredibly wide range of clientele in single or multiple transactions to buy or sell with much repeat business. I will take the time to find that special emotional home or that perfect portfolio property.
  • My highly ethical principles revolve around one single emphatic notion - SERVICE. My dedication to single handedly guide my clients through the most complex real estate transactions is legendary.
  • Todays real estate transactions are very complex, expensive and time consuming. It is my goal to make it a smooth transaction. The services I provide and my ability to negotiate have resulted in repeat and referral business.
  • Let me show you the way home!
