Born and raised, I have lived in the Des Moines and surrounding suburbs for over 35 years. As a native of Des Moines, I understand the different neighborhoods and their many curb appeals.  I have a degree from Indiana State University in Business Management, holding various positions with Enterprise Rent-a-car, Hertz Corporation and AAA Insurance / Travel.  My expertise in customer service with all 3 national companies transcends into insuring that my customers are completely satisfied with the sale of their home and the purchase of their future home.


As a real estate professional I routinely follow up diligently through out the real estate process, creating a seamless interaction for all my clients.  My knowledge of the Des Moines and surrounding markets will save you time and money in searching for your dream home.  Searching for a new home or selling your current home can be a process, which is where I can help you.  I love to work with the general public and I genuinely love making peoples dreams a reality.  There will be no questions you have that will go unanswered.  I am ready, willing and able to help you and I look forward to working with you to make the home buying and selling process an enjoyable experience.

"Jeff is very knowledgeable about real estate in the Des Moines metro area. He is very quick to respond to communications. After working with him for several weeks, it is obvious he has his clients' best interests in mind at all times, no matter where they are in the buying process, and whether or not he stands to profit from the relationship. Highly recommend."

  -Peter Lundstedt, Client

"If you want to sell your house - Jeff is the person to contact. During our process, there was never a time that Jeff didn't stay engaged. He was knowledgeable, explained the process repeatedly, until we understood and was extremely honest. He worked WITH us - not just "for" us."

  -Pam Geitz, Client

"Jeff was excellent through the whole process of buying and selling my homes. He was always available when I called. I would highly recommend Jeff and his team!"

  -Brett Swim, Colleague

"Jeff was GREAT to work with! We were first time home buyers and he responded quickly to our questions and gave objective input on houses we had interest in. Jeff explained everything to us, even simple realtor things most others know, and had immense patience. Saying Jeff is a shark realtor is a huge compliment to him. He isn't shy to speak up for the home buyers and he has a realistic view of what will and won't work in negotiations. Our process went smoother than anyone else's I've ever met. Our first home is perfect and we would definitely work with Jeff again. Unfortunately, we aren't giving up this house! "

  -Monica Brommel, Client

"Jeff is completely professional, he responded to e-mails and text messages promptly. He answered all our questions told us what to do next and helped us every step of the way. I highly recommend Jeff for your next sale or purchase of a home. You couldn't get better more honest person to help you buy a home. "

"Jeff was great to work with. He listened to what we wanted and found us our new home! He was timely and professional from start to finish, we couldn't have asked for a better experience!"

  -Matt Dobson, Client

"Jeff was very professional and easy to work with. He communicated with us at each stage of the process and told us what to expect and what to watch out for. He took our list of needs in a house and was able to match us up with numerous options that checked all the boxes. We highly recommend Jeff to anyone! "

  -Andrew Schoonhoven, Client

"I shopped for housing from 1000 away and we eventually used FaceTime. I would recommend using Jeff and Gillum. He was punctual, friendly, a good listener and gave excellent advice."

  -Anita Burr, Client

"Jeff was an outstanding Relator to work with. With this being our first time buying a home, he was a great coach and found us the best first home. He knows what he is doing and will make your house buying experience relaxed and enjoyable!"

  -Allison Rinkert, Client

"Jeff helped me find my perfect home. He responded quickly to my requests and guided me through the purchasing process. I will recommend Jeff to my family and friends when they need an agent."

  -Gail Biggart, Client

"I made contact with Jeff through a wrong number. I was actually looking to call on another listing to look at on our own but got Jeff. He spent a half an hour on the phone with my husband and I just answering questions we had about the buying process and things to watch out for. We had been shopping for realtors prior to that as we are new to the Des Moines area and no one really jumped out at us. It was this phone call that decided it for us. Jeff was incredible through the entire process and never made us feel rushed or pressured to buy a certain property. He took the time to figure out what our needs were and was able to find us a home we absolutely love. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks for everything Jeff!"

  -Danica Craig, Client

"Jeff was very informative. Moved the purchase right along. He was conscientious regarding our timeline and kept on top of the purchasing of the home. He was attentive to our requests and gave expert advice regarding the purchase price. He was an excellent agent and we would highly recommend Jeff for our next move!"

  -Jim Weber, Client

"Jeff was so patient with us! With both my fiancé and myself not being from Iowa and being new to Des Moines he helped us find the right area for our future. He respected my long lists of wants and was always willing to work with my crazy work schedule. Probably the best part of our experience with Jeff was his expertise with each house he showed us. He took the time to acknowledge the flaws in the home that first time buyers wouldn't notice. Overall Jeff was knowledgeable, respectful, and hardworking"

  -Brooke Howard, Client

"Thank you Jeff for all the work in helping us find the perfect home. We actually found a house earlier than we expected thanks to all your hard work and promptness in getting all the early paperwork completed. We will enjoy this home for many years. Thanks again!"
