Awards & Designations
I can’t say enough good things about my experience working with Bob Darr. Highly recommended!
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.
Tim was always up front and professional. He did what we thought would be impossible and got our house sold within our deadline and on our terms. He is very knowledgeable and makes good use of his resources. He is not just a real estate salesman but a marketing specialist.
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
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…
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…
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 2013 for approximately $100K in Bloomfield-Allen, Des Moines, IA
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 place at that particular…
