Along with my family, I moved from Bosnia & Hercegovina to Waterloo, IA in early 2001. I attended West High School and graduated a year early to attend college. I studied Management with emphasis in Human Resources at the University of Northern Iowa and proceeded to start exciting career in HR at the age of 21. I moved to Des Moines in 2011 and continued working in the HR world in non-for profit, manufacturing and financial industry. Passionate about helping people, I decided to launch my career as a REALTOR to help others find their dream home through integrity, hard work, proactive approach and positive attitude while bringing the best solutions to real estate to all parties involved in a transaction: sellers, buyers, lenders and fellow real estate agents.
I live downtown Des Moines with my amazing husband Tim and we enjoy all the activates downtown has to offer. We love traveling but when at home, we love to entertain and spend as much time as possible with our friends and family.
When I needed to sell my rental property two hours away from my home, I turned to Shauna Smith and the Timothy Schutte Real Estate Team. Due to distance, Shauna had to coordinate getting the keys, cleaning the unit, final inspections and repairs. She kept me informed every step the way with frequent calls, text messages and emails. She was knowledgeable about the market and priced the unit perfectly to get me more than I dreamed I could get and get a purchase agreement in less than a week. Her e…
Shauna did an excellent job of consulting with me and my family about how we should prepare our property for market and, once it was ready for market, how we wanted to show and list our property for the best possible exposure. Also, she did an excellent job of representing my family’s interests during the negotiation stage leading up to finalizing the sale.
Bought a Condo home in 2019 in Waukee, IA. Jasmina is awesome. She is very helpful and patient. She knows a lot about the real estate area here in Iowa and I’m so grateful that she was able to find me my new home. I trust her and she is very easy to work with.
I can’t say enough good things about my experience working with Bob Darr. Highly recommended!
Bob Darr helped my wife and myself at a time I was having health problems, he kept us informed about our best possibilities, and worked at finding the best deal for both parties involved. He also went out of his way to make it easier on me to get things signed. I would not hesitate to contact Bob again.
Very helpful and answered all of my questions timely. I would recommend this Realtor. He took the time to get to know us and help us find the perfect house we were looking for. -Tara Determann
Bob is fantastic to work with. Very knowledgeable and helpful to clients. I would highly recommend him.
We first met Shauna at a property showing in our early efforts to locate a property. We were assisting our son, who was very busy with his work right now, in locating a property. Shauna took the time to understand in detail his unique requirements in a new home (including a very limited budget). Shauna searched the markets daily and when appropriate, communicated possible matching opportunities. She showed a great deal of patience, advised us in a very expert manor and assisted in closing on a w…
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Waveland Park, Des Moines, IA.
Spent over a year looking at properties with Tim as my buyers agent. Tim was a great educator on the home buying process. Tim was willing to meet at my convenience. He made me a priority, and let me work through my indecisiveness, without being pushy or impatient. Best part was that you could get a hold of him if not immediately, within an hour or two. After I purchased a property, he continued to…
Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in West Des Moines, IA. Tim helped my wife and I find our first home back in 2009. He got to know us and figured out what we were looking for, and he found the perfect house for us. Over the next few years he helped us buy an apartment building and two other houses, and last year when we decided to sell one of the houses he made the selling process easy and fast. The things I like best about working with Tim are his deep understanding of both the local hou…
