    My Client Testimonials

    Baba, is very knowledgeable and helpful person. One of my friends refereed him to me. This was my first home purchase and he made this process very easy for me. As I first time buyer I had millions of questions and he answered them very well. Most importantly, he is very punctual in responding your smallest queries through text and call. We saw many open houses and he was always energetic to show us all the houses those fits our requirements. As a real estate agent, he kept our interest as the first priority. He has very sound knowledge and understanding about the local real estate market. Many times, he gave his honest opinions on what is good and what is bad for me with many examples, that saved us from making small mistakes. He provides you his best support in finding the resources. For any buyer I would highly recommend him. ~ S. Rajput

We are truly blessed to know Baba and to have been able to work with him. ~ Kati and Joe Pierce - Boone, IA
    We selected Baba Agbaje because of his excellent reputation and local knowledge. He did not disappoint us. He was with us through the entire process explaining all the nitty gritty very patiently. He gave us some really good tips to prepare our house and provided us with really great recommendations of local contractors. Our sales was through a relocation company, he and his team handled all communication with them expertly, as the buyers approached closing. We were very happy with entire experience. Our plumber said it best... "if we ever sell our home, we will go with Baba Agbaje." ~ Siva and Anju
    I'm still in pure bliss and awe that we not only got our forever home, but I am so proud to have gotten to work with Baba again. He worked incredibly hard to sell our old house and even harder to get us our forever home. We are proud to know and get to call Baba our friend. ~ Shane Grabosch
    Baba is an amazing realtor who has helped me sell my previous first home a few years ago, to helping me find another home. He does an amazing job and I will continue to use him as my realtor in the future if I'm house hunting and I will refer my friends and family to him as well. Century 21 has a great honest guy working for them. They should be very proud. ~ Kristin R Postels

    It has been a pleasure to use Baba for the last 10 years and we will continue to use and recommend him until the day he stops selling houses. ~ Shane in Huxley Iowa
    Baba always treated my wife and I with utmost respect and made us feel like finding our new home was every bit as important to him as it was to us. Baba's knowledge and expertise allowed us to ask the critical questions and get the important answers when shopping for a new home and selling our old home. I would recommend Baba for anyone looking for a home and not just a house. In my opinion there needs to be a box above "Excellent" on the survey just for Baba. Excellent doesn't go far enough to describe how well we feel we are always treated by Baba. My wife and I are very happy with how we were always treated by Baba. His expertise, patience, commitment, and overall demeanor is everything we would ever look for in an agent. ~ Jake Behrens, Ames
    Baba is ABSOLUTELY outstanding at his job. He was so amazingly necessary in what was a very stressful and arduous task of home buying. Baba's knowledge and experience was crucial from start to finish. We would not have successfully purchased our dream home if not for him. I definitely admire and respect Baba's integrity and passion for his clients. Whenever anyone asks me about a real estate agent I will hands down recommend Baba Agbaje from Century 21 Baba is exceptionally meticulous and as a result of that he was always ready with whatever we needed to move forward. My wife and I faced many challenges in this process however Baba was with us each and every step. He was available to answer questions and his response time was remarkable. I'm so eternally thankful for Baba AMAZINGLY, OUTSTANDINGLY, AWESOMELY, WONDERFUL. Samone and I are truly thankful for Baba and everyone at Century 21 that made our dreams come true Baba and good team we're completely wonderful for us. They are all top notch and passionate individuals and a very strong team that performs amazingly for their clients ~ Randy and Samone Whitfield
    Baba has been a long time friend. He was my Sunday school teacher infact. I looked into a lot of other realtors before I realized he would be the only one I trusted. Being first time home buyers, my fiance and I were worried about being taken advantage of or being pushed to buy someone we couldn't afford. Baba took into consideration our budget and only showed us houses he knew we would be able to afford. Even if I didn't know him from my childhood, I would still have gone to him as a realtor. Getting to buy a house from my old Sunday school teacher is probably the coolest thing. ~ Esther Dunne, Roland IA
    We were very pleased with Baba's hard work, kindness, honesty, knowledgeable and his willingness in meeting our needs.. Very detailed oriented. Will work with Baba in the future again. ~ Caroline Bett
    Very Friendly and had an excellent knowledge of the areas market. ~ TODD SHEPHERD- AMES
    We really felt like Baba was working hard to keep fine- tuning our home search as the process progressed and we were blown away by Baba's work ethic and commitment to excellence. Baba was incredibly patient, respectful, and honest with us, which allowed us to trust his feedback and advice at every turn. Baba is incredibly easy to work with and does a fantastic job educating his clients on the buying/ selling process to ensure they can feel confident and focus on the details that are important to them. There were so many points in the buying process where we really did need to lean on his experience and expertise before making decisions and I cannot tell you how much it meant that Baba was always ready to field our questions and provide thoughtful and timely responses. We are so thankful we were able to work with Baba and cannot recommend him enough! ~ Megan, Des Moines, IA
    Baba Agbaje is very friendly, polite and knowledgeable person. Always he understood very well our needs. Also, hes a very flexible and simple person. We highly appreciate his timely communication. He answered all calls and text within few minutes. Overall Baba did very well with our purchase. We highly satisfied with him and we dont forget to recommend Baba Agbaje to new home buyers. ~ Sujeeva & Sonali, Ames
    Thank you Baba Agbaje for all of your help!! Recommend you to anyone buying and selling. ~ Lu McKeeman 1313 SW Campus Lane Ankeny, Iowa 50023
    Baba did a really good job getting good value for our home in a short time. ~ Travis Campbell, Ames
    We bought and sold through Baba... and we were very glad we did. We felt like Baba provided excellent value. He was honest, very helpful, and did a great job of educating us / walking us through the process. We have already recommended Baba to other folls and will continue to do so. ~ Kevan in Ames
    We had a bad experience with some other realtors in the area so happy to have Baba. We looked at a number of places but none of them fit our needs so he lead us to the right place, so he was listening to what we needed and helped us find what we think is the prefect place and that is all that you can ask from your realtor. In the future we will be using Baba as we grow. ~ Gene Tripp
    Baba is incredibly professional, diplomatic, and committed to helping his customer. This was the second house we've purchased with Baba as our agent. We cannot ask for a better agent. He answers all our questions and makes certain everything is done correctly. ~ Linda Hardie, Ames
    I was selling my moms home. Baba was very helpful in guiding me through what work should be done on the house to make it more marketable. My mom ended up in the hospital during closing time. Baba went the extra mile and met me at the hospital twice to get it all done. I would highly recommend him! He was very understanding that it was a difficult time with my mom and having to sell her home of over 60 years. ~ Rhonda Wandling Ames
    Baba was great to work with. He is always very kind and professional. He pays attention to detail and finding what is best for you and your needs. Throughout the entire buying process I knew Baba had my back and best interest at hand. I would definitely work with Baba and Century 21 again. ~ Bailey, Des Moines area
    I (Seth) have been working with Baba since 2009. We were classmates in college and Baba kept me up-to-date on trends in the central Iowa housing market since graduating (per my request). Even though I didn't buy until 2019, I've had the pleasure of watching Baba grow himself and his business. Therefore, anyone I've known who was interested in purchasing a home was referred to Baba. He's a professional at what he does. He knows real estate. He's honest and not afraid to negotiate or advocate on the buyer's behalf. Baba's an upstanding citizen and a treasure to the Ames community. He takes pride in his town and is passionate about everything he does (including the Cyclones!). All of this is why he'll always be my go-to for anything real-estate related. No matter where one's at in their home-buying/selling journey, Baba is the only person I'll recommend. ~ Seth & Emma Miller, Ames
    Baba Agbaje helped me through the buying and selling process. He explained everything and was always available if I needed a question answered. He is honest and always works hard for his clients! ~ Lu McKeeman Ankeny
    Baba has a great reputation in the Ames and central Iowa area. He is an honest man with great character. He worked diligently to find the home that we were looking for, and stayed positive throughout the search! ~ Brenda Flaming, Ames
    Baba helped us buy our 1st home and we knew we wanted to work with him when buying our 2nd home. Baba is so honest and truly wants to see his clients happy. He works hard to get clients what they want and need and this is why we would never work with another agent. He is such a friendly, happy guy that he makes even the most frustrating parts of buying a home enjoyable. ~ Michelle Jacobson, Ames
    Baba helped us sell our townhome while we are living in another state. He went above and beyond and even helped meet people to let them into the place for repair work, and overall, it was a pretty good experience for us being long distance and selling the property. He communicates timely, gives good advice, and allows time for phone calls and discussions. I would recommend him to anyone. We had Baba sell three properties, and he did a great job with all three! Thank you, Baba ~ Megan S, Holly Springs, NC
    Baba did a great job as our agent. He always went above and beyond to make sure we had all the information we needed. He knows the market well and also gives great advice during the whole selling process. He is by far one of the best to work with and goes out of his way to make sure any questions are answered, as well. Thank you, Baba for all that you have done! ~ Megan Sidharta, Ames
    Baba is professional and knowledgeable. He knew the market and was prepared to move the house quickly. Babe significantly reduced the stress of selling and moving. Everything was accomplished in the timeframe I needed. ~ Tyler Albertson, Ames, IA
    Baba did a great job with the sale of our property. He always had quick responses and clearly communicated everything. We will be choosing to have other real estate sales with Baba. He knows the market, understands client needs, and gives realistic expectations. Well done, Baba! ~ Megan Sidharta, Ames
    We selected Baba as our agent because his deep commitments to honesty and integrity. There was a never a concern about Baba having our best interest at heart, and we always knew he would treat potential buyers and their agents with respect. To us, the greatest compliment we can give Baba is that he was our buyer agent when we bought our home in Ames and we went back to him to sell our home three years later. Additionally, we recommended him to three other friends who hired him as their agents and they made a point to thank us because of the service Baba provided. In the end, Baba was able to sell our condo in a week at a price above what we thought we would get. Additionally, he supported us through our negotiations to get the closing date and other concessions that we needed. Having worked with multiple other agents in different markets, we would not recommend any of them over Baba! ~ Jason Salisbury & Manali Sheth -- Ames
    Baba did an excellent job helping us buy our home, It was important for me to give him our business when selling as a reward. Always answered our questions and was attentive to our needs. Treated like family not just another commission. ~ Desryan Jenson, Ames, Iowa
    Baba's attention to our wants and needs are why we chose him. He listens, works hard and is very detail oriented. Baba is hands-down the best realtor I've ever worked with. ~ Mike from Ames
    Give good report on the market around the house ~ Wenyan Wu clive
    Very honest and looks out for you. ~ Jie Chen
    Baba was very knowledgeable and helpful with anything we asked him! We loved learning from Baba as first time home buyers. He was able to answer any questions we had, and he was always available for us to reach. We would go to Baba in any future home buying/selling experiences! We would also recommend him to any family or friends that are looking for an amazing, caring realtor! ~ Matthew & Siera Schwartz, Huxley

    Baba Agbaje has helped us buy, sell, and build a home. What an asset he has been to my family! My wife and I tend to take our time with decisions and change our mind frequently. Baba has been the perfect fit. Baba's patience, listening skills, knowledge of real estate, and attention to detail are what keep us coming back to him. He listens to our needs, does the research and work to find what we're looking for, and makes himself available according to our schedule. I would recommend Baba to anyone in need of a realtor. Call Baba, you won't regret it. ~ Mike Hansen, Ames
    Baba was truly amazing throughout our home buying process. From the first interaction until now, he was very attentive to our wants and needs in our new home. He was patient with us as we navigated the market, always willing to show us a property within a quick timeline. He is extremely knowledgeable of the local market and ultimately found us a perfect place! I would highly recommend selecting Baba as your agent and know you won't be disappointed as he is the best in the business! ~ Ryan Barbauld, Gilbert, IA.
    I have dealt with Baba on 2 properties. Baba is the best. He goes beyond to make sure things are handled. He is the best I have ever worked with. Thank you Baba . Baba handled every aspect. He was excellent Baba's performance was excellent. I consider him a friend. couldn't have been any better. Baba is the best. ~ Gary Schenkelberg
    We have had a long relationship with Baba as both a friend and a realtor. Baba has detailed knowledge of all aspects of the home buying process. We were impressed with his knowledge and attention to all the little details and his diligence to insure that everything (even things not directly in his control) were handled in a timely manner. We were somewhat disappointed with the seller of the property we purchased. The home was not clean when we took possession and Baba had to force them to live up to inspection items we had previously agreed to on the scheduled day of closing. But Baba came to the rescue and salvaged our closing day by getting in touch with the listing realtor and getting them to respond immediately. We really appreciated that. ~ Todd Teske, Ames
    Baba is great in every aspect. We were first time home buyers and he was very patient with us all the time. Thanks to Baba, from the beginning to the very end everything went very smoothly. He is very friendly, respectful, always available (day & night) and always consider our requests and needs. Not "pushy" at all. Sometimes, he's the one who told us to wait until our "dream home" hits the market. We were very lucky to have Baba as our realtor and also as our FRIEND! We will definitely recommend him to anyone without any doubt. ~ Lakshmi & Nuwan
    Baba was extremely professional, helpful and he is very knowledgeable about the Ames area. He did not push us for any purchase. He stayed neutral even if it was his own listing. He always mentioned important pros and cons about every house we looked at. He was very well organized throughout the whole process. He accommodated our schedule every time and he also went above and beyond to sublease our apartment which he didn't have to. We thoroughly enjoyed our first home purchase and a big thanks goes to Baba to make that happen. ~ Anwesha Sarkar, Soumik Sarkar, Ames, IA
    Baba was recommended to us by an Iowa State University colleague when I relocated to the state for a job in 2015. Baba worked with us over email, phone, and in person to find us the perfect downtown Des Moines condo. When we discovered that we were going to have our first child, and realized that we needed a home with more space, we had NO DOUBT that we would use Baba again. As first- (and then second-) time home buyers, we needed a realtor who would patiently explain the process to us; who would look out for our best interests; and be available for viewings, conversations, and negotiations. Seriously, we could not have asked for a better agent. Baba has been an amazing help to us, even as our needs and desires have changed over the last two years. We will highly recommend Baba to any and all new members of the Iowa State University faculty. ~ Michael Bowman, Des Moines
    Baba has an excellent understanding of the Ames market. We were able to sell our house extremely quick and knew exactly how much to list it for in the current market. He was able to work with the needs of our young family and make the home selling experience great. He took the time to explain the ins and outs of selling a home, which was invaluable to us since we were first time home sellers. We would definitely recommend Baba to anyone selling in Ames. ~ Mike and Amy
    Baba had an excellent understanding of the market at the time of our purchase and took all of our desires in a house into account when helping us look for a house. He communicated with us well throughout the whole process so we always knew where things were at. Baba was wonderful to work with and we would definitely recommend him for buying/selling. ~ Mike and Amy
    I would recommend Baba because he is friendly and honest. He knows real estate and he helped us to get what we wanted and sold our house for what we wanted. We appreciate his skills as a realtor and would recommend him to anyone! ~ Kirstin
    Baba went above and beyond what he was required to do at closing time. He was attentive and supportive. We so appreciated his help! I would recommend Baba to any of my friends and/or family looking to sell or purchase a house. ~ Angela Allen
    Baba Agbaje is a wonderful real estate agent. He is very professional and does a great job of staying accessible and providing clear communication. I would recommend Baba's services to anyone seeking professional help with buying/selling properties. ~ D. Siyavora, Des Moines, IA
    Baba was excellent to work with. My family visited the house before we made an offer and they were equally impressed. ~ Lucas Schau 1146 S. K Ave Nevada, Ia 50201
    I can't say enough great things about the buying experience we had with Baba! I very much appreciated how Baba handled the home buying process for us. He was knowledgeable, professional and most importantly, honest. Baba listened to what we wanted and desired for in a home, and he took those interests to heart. I am now blessed to not only call Baba my realtor, but my friend. ~ Erin Forsberg
    In speaking with Baba it quickly became evident that he would keep our best interests at heart and work to get us the best home possible. That level of trust and confidence was not present with other agents that we spoke with. The first thing that drew us to working with Baba was his apparent trustworthiness, which continued throughout the purchasing process. Furthermore, he was consistently helpful and insightful as we looked for our new home. His knowledge of the region, the process, and homes in general was invaluable and was a big reason we found the perfect home for our family. Throughout the entire process of purchasing our home Baba was amazing! Essentially, he took a pay cut to get us the best deal on our new home because of the way he advised us through negotiations. Additionally, Baba was always available to us for answering questions, showing us potential homes, and providing feedback/comps on listings we were interested in. There was really no comparison between Baba and previous buyer agents we've worked with - he outperforms all of them! We could not have been happier with our experiences in working with Baba! In fact, we have already recommended him to a number of friends and will continue to do so; I cannot think of an area that we were unhappy with. He went above and beyond his responsibilities - for example working to help us sublet our rental, putting us in touch with contractors to accomplish minor repairs, and staying in touch after the purchase to ensure that everything was going well in our new home. ~ Jason Salisbury, Ames IA
    Baba is one of the nicest people I have ever met. Buying a home from out of state could have been very difficult but Baba made it a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. I am so pleased with my purchase. It was a very difficult market but Baba continued to work until he found me exactly what I was looking for. He is trustworthy and very detail oriented. Highly recommend! ~ Christine Perich, Colorado
