How I can help with your real estate needs
I take the time to know and understand my clients' needs. I don't want to find just any home for my buyers. I want to find that perfect fit.
My clients aren't just a number. I take the time to know who they are and their wants and needs, not only now, but five, ten years from now.
I know how important good customer service is. It’s why I became a Realtor myself. I wasn’t satisfied by the service I received and knew there had to be a better way. I am a no-pressure Realtor who will give my all finding that "just right" home for my clients.
Before venturing into real estate, I worked as an arts and entertainment writer covering events in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area. I am well versed in all there is to do and see.
An Iowa native, I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Drake University. I believe in giving back to the community. I volunteer with the Marion Chamber as an ambassador as well as Linn Mar Schools.
I am married and have three active sons.

Deanna was the perfect agent for our relocation to the area. She originally took me on a tour of the area and spent time understanding what our needs were and then focusing the tour on those needs. It was obvious that she knew the area extremely well and was also focused on what our family needed.
We then spent a long weekend with Deanna looking at homes during a house hunting trip. She was very responsive to each of our requests and
helped us figure out exactly what we valued in a home. When it came time to make an offer she helped us through every step of the process.
Deanna had experience with every concern that we had and
I cannot recommend Deanna enough - the attention to detail, understanding of our families' needs, and consistent follow-up were highly valued and helped us get into the exact home we wanted. Thank you very much!

Deanna was amazing throughout the whole buying and selling process. We initially began with Deanna as just buyers, but were so happy with her services, my husband and I decided to list our home with Deanna as well after it spent months on the market as FSBO. After listing with Deanna we sold the house after only 2 days.
Deanna really made us feel like we were valued customers. She
I would highly recommend Deanna to any buyer or seller. She does amazing work, is extremely professional, and so easy to talk to and get along with. I even told my husband that the only bad thing about finding the perfect new home is that we won't get to see Deanna anymore!
