I was very happy with choosing Chris as my listing agent. Had tried another company prior to and that didn't work. Chris told me how he was going to market it and I was impressed With his thoroughness of how he was going to sell my house. And he did just that it was sold within 2 Days of when it was listed. His follow through to a closing was very thorough. Always return calls when I had questions. I would highly recommend him to sell a house

Alex McKinney
Chris helped me buy my first home. we were first connected through my VA lender and couldn’t be happier. He was super easy to work with, knowledgeable of the VA lending process, honest in his assessment of the homes we looked at which helped in me being comfortable making a final decision. Chris also helped get me a home well under appraised value which I appreciated as a buyer. Couldn’t be happier with my experience working with Chris and look forward to working together again in the future!

I am a local Loan Officer and had the pleasure to work with Chris. Having him on the other side of the process was so amazing, you can truly feel the passion and excitement he has for everyone he works with, and he is a major part of why the experience went so well for our buyers. He was truly invested in the whole process.

Chris was absolutely fantastic! This was our first time buying a home, and we were not sure if we wanted to truly buy when we first started looking. Chris listened to our wants and needs, and helped us find homes that were within our budget and requirements. He was always available for questions, and was super organized. Chris truly cares about each client! We found the perfect home for our family, and cannot thank Chris enough! I know that if we have to buy or sell in the future, we will be calling Chris!

Our living situation changed dramatically and I knew it would be a challenge to list our home. Chris was confident, showed his confidence, and sure enough, our home sold in two days. He actually made the process a whole lot easier than previous moves when selling a home. Ten out of ten would recommend him!

Chris did an amazing job. At the start he was very calm and understanding. He let me think about what I was looking for before showing me any properties. We were able to talk about everything and the communication was amazing. He gave a lot of great advice and helped me make some very important decisions which I’m happy I made. Chris will do the best for you and will do his best to get you the best deal and property to fit all your needs.

We had an amazing experience working with Chris. He went above and beyond and made buying our first home a breeze! I would highly recommend him to anyone who's looking to buy their next home. Thanks so much Chris!
Jacob Lovell
It was truly a pleasure working with Chris and Amanda. My situation had several unique challenges and they navigated them and advised me expertly and patiently.

The area I lived in is quite rural so the market was tougher to negotiate. Chris had a professional photographer come in and they took great pictures, including arial pictures of my property with a drone. This is a must do. Chris did a great job of advertising in multiple venues, getting the acreage seen by many potential buyers.

Chris and Amanda are well connected, easy to work with and know the real-estate business very well. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Molly Byrnes
Chris Kew is great at what he does! He is a pro at negotiating and used great marketing techniques to help sell my investment property at top dollar.

I can’t recommend him enough and will be using him for all future sales!

Chris was freaking amazing! He answered all my questions that I had in a way that I could understand. This was my first home buying experience, and it went so smoothly! Couldn’t have gone any smoother! Use this guy for all your buying and selling needs!
Laynie Duff
I was easily Chris’ most annoying client. I asked tons of questions everyday and would ask more based on his answers. Always asking for updates, wondering why certain things took so long, what different documents were, etc. Chris always told me what was going on, kept me in the loop whenever there was an update to be given, explained everything that didn’t make sense to me, and when there were a couple of hiccups in the process, he always assured me that everything was fine. This was my first time selling a house and I’m so glad I found you, Chris! will never stop recommending you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Meagan Dreesman

Chris was amazing throughout our first home buying experience, from prompt replies to any questions we had and scheduling home viewings, to getting us through a rocky closing day with a less than professional lender. I would absolutely recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase a home!
Taylor Devore
Chris did a great job. He was available to answer any questions we had and also had our best interest in mind. The process was very smooth and even when things were hectic..he was there for us!
Cassy Potthoff
Chris did an amazing job helping us find the perfect home for our family! As first time home buyers we had absolutely no idea what we were doing, but Chris was very informative and made the process easy and painless while guiding us the entire way! We had a scare just one day before we were set to close and almost had our closing delayed due to our lender slacking on their part, but Chris went to bat for us and got it pushed through! Thanks to Chris we got our perfect home, and I would highly recommend him to anyone on the hunt! Thanks again, Chris!
Josh Devore
Chris Kew is more than just a realtor. He cares about his clients and helps them anyway he can. That is what he did for me and I can’t thank him enough. He helped me buy a house and sell it all within 9 months due to circumstances beyond my control. He is always so positive and keeps in touch during the whole process and answers any questions a client might have. Right now I have decided to rent but in the future when the time comes to buy Chris Kew will definitely be my realtor and I will recommend him to anyone I know. Thanks again Chris!!!!!

Chris was absolutely awesome during our home buying experience. He was always there answering all of our question, helping us to look at what exactly we needed to know about the house, and really giving us valuable insights into buying our first house! I would recommend Chris to absolutely anybody who is looking for a home! He is truly top-notch!
Craig Elliott
Chris was amazing! As a first time homebuyer, he put any random worry I could think of at ease with a few words. When searching, he even took me to any random house I wanted to see, even if he knew I wouldn't like it. I would strongly recommend Chris for anyone looking looking for a dedicated realtor.
Nathan Schmidt
Chris was an excellent help in contributing to my first home purchase. His understanding of the requirements needed expedited the process, and we were able to close on just over a month from when we first started looking at houses.

Professional Dedicated Positive Initiative Passionate

Chris has proven to be very dedicated to us and our interest. His experience, knowledge, and resources minimized a great deal of stress and concerns experienced during our home buying process. He was forthcoming with any issues of concerns and effective in all resolution. He continued to be available and has lived up to his promise to ensure customer satisfaction. Recommend he be a first choice for home buyers and sellers!
Devin Fisher
One of the most common pieces of advice I got from homeowners was “find a good realtor, make sure the realtor knows what they’re doing” right off the bat I knew Chris was in it for the long haul no matter how many houses we looked at, how many questions we had, or what time of day he would need to meet up for a showing. Anytime I sent him a house - he had a showing set up that day within the time I was available. He talked me through every part of the home buying process. He is also very knowledgeable on all things pricing. I couldn’t recommend Chris enough. He introduced us to a new lender after not having the best experience with the first, got us a great inspector, and always communicated what we needed or what was happening with the process. If you want someone is going to fight for what you want & be on your team, Chris is your guy. Thank you Chris!!!!!
Madeline Fisher
Very motivated to keep things moving and on track. Could not have asked for a better realtor for a first time homebuyer. Chris made sure to keep me very well informed on everything and was quick to answer questions or get answers that I needed.
Seth Caston
Working with Chris was great! He made the hectic home buying process so much easier (first time home buyer). He is so easy to work with, and really showed us how much he cared about our home buying journey. Thank you Chris for all of your hard work and dedication!
Amanda Crisman
Chris was fantastic to work with. He took what we looked at and kept dialing in our preferences. With us both working, he made himself available in the evening which was great for us. After we found the house, he let us back in multiple times so we could take measurements and start making plans for the home. We did a 30 day fast close on our new home and the sale of our other home. Chris volunteered any help to ensure our sale went smooth so we could close on our new one. He went above and beyond any expectation I had for a realtor. We highly recommend Chris and would happily use him again in the future. Look no further than Chris Kew for a realtor that truly cares about his clients. Thanks again Chris!!!

Kaitlynn Cranor
I had an opportunity to meet with Chris 6 1/2 weeks ago about getting a mortgage for a new home in West Des Moines. 6 1/2 weeeks later, I closed on a home in West Des Moines on October 29th, 2021. I have never seen a man with so much integrity and faith to assist me in getting the necessary things accomplished to make it now a reality. Chris is a believer and follower of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; in addition to being extremely qualiofied to handle all of your mortgage application and steps for the community in the metro area of Des Moines, Iowa. I highly recommend Chris as your next realtor for your individual needs.

Chris was a wonderful experience to work with, good with looking out for your needs and with kids. We highly recommend using Chris to help you find your next home!!
Huntter Wilhelm
Chris was amazing! He didn’t push us to buy and helped us find the perfect house. He responds super quick and was able to schedule showings that fit our weird schedule regardless of time! He even helped us with our difficult lender and hounded them until they responded! 10/10 would recommend him! Once we need to move he will be selling our house! Absolutely love him!!!
Abbie Schlotfeldt
Chris Kew is a phenomenal realtor to work with and one who understands the current market. He is professional and he goes the extra mile for his customers. Buying or listing a home seems easy up front, but can be challenging once you are going through the process in today’s market. Chris’s attention to detail, taking professional pictures instead of phone ones (for listings) to get maximum price along with his availability to answer any questions and show homes is what makes him an A1 realtor. If you need a realtor to help you list your home or buy in this market - you know what to do! Call Chris Kew!
Thomas Hansen
Chris was very professional and easy to work with. He goes out of his way to find you the perfect home you have been looking for. His flexibility with your schedule is more than satisfactory. Whether you're looking to sell or shopping for your dream home, I would strongly recommend using Chris Kew as your realtor!

Britney Stuart
Chris was amazing!!! When we wanted to see this house, it hit the market about 2 hrs when we saw it. We told Chris right away and he went to work right away! Within 30 minutes, we got the opportunity to see the house. His responsiveness and willingness to put us first definitely helped us get the house we wanted. Overall, we had been working with Chris and every time, he never pressured us and was always asking the right questions. He would even tell us about things he would notice. He had knowledge of the market and would provide us with an analysis. We always had the necessary information to help us make a decision.
If you get the chance to work with Chris, you will not regret it.
Daniel Vargas
Chris is very friendly and knowledgeable. I have worked with Chris in multiple occasions and he always goes an extra mile to get the job done for his clients. I’ll totally recommend buyers to choose him because he will guide you and get you a good deal. Keep up the good work!
Sanjay Antony
Chris climbed through many snow covered drive ways to help us find our home. He even led us through many virtual viewings in preparation for our out of state move. Couldn’t ask for a more willing and capable realtor.
Daniel Morea
I bought my first home with Chris and he was excellent! Made sure I knew about every cost that could be associated and kept me updated during the entire process. Very professional and very kind. Highly recommend!
Paige Johnson
Chris was matched to us through Veterans United as my husband is Active Duty Marine Corps. Iowa was and is a whole new experience for us as it is not on or near a Marine Corps base (My husband is a new recruiter out of Ames). This was our first home buying experience and we had to do the whole process via video and text while in North Carolina. Chris went above and beyond to make sure every single question/ request was met with prompt answers any time of day or night. We closed on our home today and couldn't be happier with the whole process.
