Growing up in a small town in Iowa, Jake was fortunate at a young age to be exposed to the values of helping others, hard work and what it meant to be trustworthy. Earlier in his education and career, he devolved a strong interest in politics. It fascinated him so much that he even traveled almost a 1,000 miles across the country to study political science.
It was a great experience, especially learning more about why people believe what they believe, working side by side some of the most influential people in the nation, and even driving around with Presidential candidates. In the end, and after six non-stop action-packed years, he decided it wasn’t exactly fulfilling my needs to help people on a more personal level and to make a difference.
That is how he got started in real estate here in the Des Moines area and he has never looked back since! He says it feels great helping people buy and sell homes, meeting their families, and knowing he played a role in one of the biggest decisions in their lives. Thanks for your time and he looks forward to the opportunity to get to know you more and helping you achieve your real estate goals!
5 star – I highly recommend Greg Steward from EXIT Realty as your realtor. He helped us sell our current home and purchase our new home (which we absolutely love!). He is knowledgeable, easy to contact, and will do whatever it takes to make sure his clients are happy and comfortable with the whole process. When we found ourselves in a tough situation (nothing to do with anything Greg did), Greg remained calm and worked his magic to make sure we got what we wanted and needed in a timely manner. I…
5 star – Greg is a great realtor. His hard work and great marketing skills sold our house for asking price! He has a great attitude and a strong network of resources to meet anyone’s realty needs. Ryan Aylesworth

I had the pleasure of working with Timothy and his staff during the late summer and fall looking for a new home. I found Timothy to be a refreshing change from the other realtors I’d worked with in the past. He was particularly attentive to my needs, as opposed to trying to sell me his listings. At every possible turn he went out of his way to make sure I was in a good …
More than 5 star – Greg walked me through shopping for and buying my first home and I was very happy with how smooth the process went. With something like this I think communication is key and he did a great job working with everyone involved. He was very responsive to phone and emails. In fact we were able to do the majority of our communications over email. I can’t imagine a better home buying experience. Thanks Greg! VLSICPRE J
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.

The Bickel realty team works for their client – not themselves, which is hard to find these days. They found us the perfect home, worked hard to address all our concerns quickly and are quick to answer calls, emails and texts. They went beyond closing to advocate for us in an issue that involved escrowed funds. We recommend them highly, will not consider other realty teams for an…
My husband and I have now worked with Greg on both the buying and selling end of home ownership, and we have nothing but positive remarks. He is easy to contact via several different forms of communication and always responds promptly, making what can be a stressful process (especially when adding a 700+ mile move to the equation) flow as smoothly as possible. When something…

Robyn explained the paperwork so that we understood each document. (Also very patient with us!) She investigated the new FHA rates and explained how FHA works for a buyer and the end results for us. We would highly recommend Robyn and Exit Realty to people we know looking to buy or sell a home. Very professional

As a first time homebuyer, David Namink guided me through the process of searching for my home. He listened to my concerns and showed me homes that fit what I was looking for. He was always available whenever I had a question and provided me with complete answers. I would highly recommend David to anyone searching for their next home. Rebecca Kronick
