    My Client Testimonials

    Ethan made the whole process run very smoothly! ~ Loretta Adams Ames Is.
    This is our second time around with Ethan and his team and ¿Thank You¿ doesn¿t seem like enough. He combines character, honesty, hard work and the ability to deliver an amazing experience into every interaction. He demonstrates what a great sales person is through the way he handles not only us as his clients but also the other party. It is important to us that we get a good deal, but also that we fair to the people we are selling to or buying from and he navigates that with ease. Ethan knows our expectations and how we want to go about buying and selling and he strives to go above and beyond an already high bar. The extra touches of status updates, coffee gift cards, reminders of what is being worked on in the background, and so much more just added to an already great experience. Ethan and his team are simply amazing, and we will be clients as long as they are in the business. Thank ALL again, we appreciate you more than you know!! ~ Bailey and Alex, Altoona
    The entire selling experience with Ethan Hokel was excellent. He was extremely professional and very knowledgable. He listened to our goals and needs and worked diligently to meet them. The marketing plan he put together was top notch. He was always accessible and I would say he exceeded our expectations of a top level realtor on all accounts. ~ Mindi and Paul, Ankeny
    After another purchase, Ethan out did himself once again. Ethan did everything the right way to help make the buying process as easy as possible. Ethan went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of from day one. His constant communication, willingness to go out of his way to get answers to any questions and truly give his all, is second to none! The process from start to finish was nothing short of simple and efficient and that is solely because of Ethan and his ability to go above and beyond for his clients. ~ Greg, Huxley
    Ethan was great to work with. Ethan is very knowledgeable and has been patient with us. He put our interest above everything else. I would work with him for my real estate need and recommend Ethan to my friends and family! ~ Samita Basnet, West Desmoines
    Ethan was the only broker we talked with and we had no desire to look any further because he was very professional and helpful from the moment we first talked to him. Ethan made time to meet with us personally or have someone available to show us a home when it best fit our schedule. This was super beneficial for us. He also has an incredible amount of knowledge about all things real estate. Negotiations couldn't have went smoother, it was super helpful that we were able to ask his advice during negotiating and he was a great middle-man for those discussions with the seller, which made it way more comfortable for us. Every step of the way was basically as simple as I imagine it could possibly be due to Ethan's expertise, customer service skills, friendliness, and good sense of humor. I really can't think of anything that Ethan could have improved on, he really knocked it out of the park in every way! ~ Myles Allbee, Urbandale
    I would definitely recommend Ethan to any friends or family members buying or selling a home. Ethan is knowledgeable, patient, and hard-working. I know he cared for me, and my search, and gave me good advice when looking for my home. Not only did he do a good job during the search and buying process, but AFTER too. Ethan goes above and beyond to ensure his clients have a good experience before, during and after buying and selling! ~ Amanda, West Des Moines
    Ethan was excellent. Couldn¿t not have wished for a more responsive and straightforward realtor. He spoke plainly and clearly to us and was open and honest. That¿s why we selected him and he did not disappoint. Compared to other realtors we spoke with he was honest, compassionate and went above and beyond when marketing our property. Thank you Ethan! ~ Simon, Ankeny.
    Ethan and his team were amazing! We are not easy to deal with and Ethan and his team made us feel like we were too prior. I will recommend ethan to anyone I know who¿s wanting to buy/sell. This was our first time selling a house and it was something we had no idea about or any experience. Ethan did an amazing job walking us through everything. His advertising was above and beyond and didn¿t even have our house on the market for a full 12 hours before receiving multiple offers! Ethan even found us an amazing home with a great well detailed builder. We hope to not have to move any time soon, but if we did we know exactly who to call! 10/10! ~ Bryce Strumpfer Slater Iowa
    I highly recommend Ethan Hokel as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. Our home sold in 2 days for asking price. Ethan took care of everything so that we didn't need to be concerned with the few issues that took place with our short turn around sale. Ethan is an honest, hard working realtor, that goes the extra mile for his clients. Without a doubt I would recommend him for the sale of your home! ~ Tim Elliott, Huxley, IA
    Ethan is by far the most professional, efficient, and disciplined Realtor my wife and I have had the opportunity to work with, over an almost 20 year military career moving all over the country every 2-3 years. His expertise and influence allowed us to sell our home within a week of contacting him. I knew he was a great Realtor, but I am truly impressed by how much he goes above and beyond anyone weve ever worked with in the past. There were never any surprises and he always took the time to explain everything in detail leaving zero guesswork on our end. He is also representing us as we build our new home. He always serves in our best interest asking the appropriate questions we would not think of asking. He was very patient with us while meeting with numerous builders before we landed on a builder who suited our needs the best. There is not enough room on this review to fully express my appreciation for Ethan. The military moved us back to Iowa in 2017 and we met Ethan when we became his neighbor. When I deployed overseas in 2019-2020, he and his family took it upon themselves to check in on my family and arranged for lawn service for our home while I was away. Ethan is actively involved in his community, he is a great neighbor, a great friend, and there is no Realtor I trust or endorse more than him. ~ Cliff and Amanda DeMaris, Huxley, IA
    Ethan went above and beyond and truly made us feel like we were his only client. He was available anytime we needed him. Communication and the hard work he put in were unbeatable. We will be recommending him to everyone! Ethan had our house sold before we could even list. The entire process was extremely smooth. We felt clueless after being in our previous house for 12 years, but Ethan and his team kept us updated and informed every step of the way! ~ Dan and Chelsea
    Ethan is an excellent person to work with. What I appreciated most was his responsiveness. Throughout this process of finding some land to build on and then actually planning the home with a builder, it's full of waiting for people to just get back to you. We were never waiting on Ethan, even during off hours as we thought of random things. I'd recommend Ethan to anyone. ~ Paul, Bondurant
    Ethan was excellent to work with! He provided timely & clear communication, helped us along the way, and he answered all of our questions (even when on vacation with his family). He made sure our needs were met and was very respectful. Ethan went above and beyond at the closing date to make sure we moved into our new home on time and without any issues. We are very grateful for his hard work & to have him with us through the process. ~ Bryan & Niki Holland
    Ethan has been an excellent resource in my investment property search. Ethan and his team was knowledgable and made the purchase a seamless one. I highly recommend Ethan and I look forward to future deals together. ~ Chris-Des Moines
    I choice Ethan because I have previously worked with him in the past on selling another home that I had owned. He has knowledge of the Ballard area and that is where I was looking for a home at, so I knew I would be getting the best help! He answers questions as fast as he can and never pushes you into a deal. Ethan always does his best to represent his client and walks you through the whole process with updates each week until you sign the closing documents! I will always recommend Ethan to others. Ethan is overall a great person not only a realtor! He listens to your needs and wants and does the very best to find each of those! He always goes above and beyond to find the place you are looking for! ~ Nicole Vickroy Huxley, Iowa
    Ethan took on selling my house in a pandemic, while I was completely remote, like it was no big deal. It's hard to imagine a stranger time, and things could have been so stressful, but Ethan went the extra mile, more than once, to get the house sold. He's generous and a total pro. ~ Grace V, Storrs, CT
    Ethan was fabulous to work with! He made the whole process run as smooth as possible! ~ Shanna Wunder, Huxley
    Ethan made the process of selling the home simple from start to finish. He went above and beyond to assist me in working with the progress of preparing the property. I would and will recommend Ethan to others looking for an agent. ~ Elisa, Ankeny
    Ethan has all of the qualities that you'd want in a realtor. He's responsive, knowledgeable, experienced, and a great communicator. Above all, Ethan is a good human-being and will work hard to help your family find their next home! ~ Kyle and Amanda Auffert: Huxley, Iowa
    Ethan was great to work with. Very laid back. Quick response time. Very personable and professional. ~ Taylor Siech, Windsor Heights
    Ethan worked patiently with us trying to find the right house. It took a few months but his knowledge of the local market paid off. We could not be happier with the house he found us and the experience of working with him. ~ Kurtis Jones, Huxley IA
    Ethan was great to work with on the purchase of our new home! He listened to our needs and wants, and supported us through every step of the home-buying process. He was very responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful. We would recommend Ethan and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in central Iowa! We had a great experience overall, and can't wait to start our life in our dream house. ~ Adam Petz & Mollie Ullestad, Huxley, IA
    Ethan was great to work with on the purchase of our new home and sale of our old house! He was prepared to move quickly when the right house came available and to help us get ours on the market, if he wasn't available he went over and above to make sure someone on the Century 21 team could assist us! Great experience overall, highly recommend for real estate needs! ~ Chelsea & Jake Olson
    Ethan was so amazing to work withhe was ALWAYS available with any questions or concerns that we had. Being first time home buyers, he did an excellent job at walking us through the whole process and how things work. He is one of kindest people that Ive ever met and it was a pleasure working with him. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone! Everyone that we met or talked to from Century 21 was so kind and so knowledgeable! Im so grateful for Century 21. ~ Tori Baker
    When we decided to sell and re-build, I was stressed. So much needed to come together to make our plan a reality. After meeting with Ethan to discuss our vision and a few interactions thereafter, the stress was gone. I was confident he would get it done. In the end he sold our home for more than expected, and did it quickly. He also helped us acquire our new land for less than expected, and has connected us with a great builder. Ethan's ability to handle each aspect of the process, his clear and timely communication, and follow through have all been key. Ethan has truly exceeded my expectations. ~ Cody Sobotka, Huxley, Iowa
    Ethan Hokel did an excellent job in the selling our property. ~ Linda Oxenford Ankeny
    Our sale started out pretty standard, then our house received some storm damage. Ethan Hokel's resourcefulness was the key to selling our house on time! We had a great experience through a difficult situation. I don't think we would be in our new home today without Ethan Hokel. ~ Russ Smith, Huxley
    Very happy with the job Ethan did. He was always accesible. ~ Allen Smith Altoona
    Ethan was absolutely nothing short of impressive when it came to extremely fast responses, knowledge of every step of the process, and attention to detail on what was drawn up. During the closing process the bank ran into some technical difficulties which pushed closing and created endless issues on our end. Ethan was right there through the process and did everything in his power to get the process fixed and get us everything we needed during these issues. I have never seen a realtor go above and beyond the way Ethan has, and because of this - I will never use another realtor or recommend another realtor other than Ethan Hokel! I dont think there is another realtor that comes even close to the response time or accessibility of Ethan. It did not matter what he had going on, I ALWAYS got an immediate response and immediate results. I cannot express how amazing that is and how rare it is to find an agent that is that invested in constant communication before/during/and after the purchase. ~ Tanner & Ashley Clayton -Huxley,IA
    He sold our house before we even listed it! We had asked him to stop over to help us decide what projects to finish before listing next year. That night he called with a buyer. The next day it sold! ~ Marci Ferguson, Ames
    Ethans knowledge of the market in the area made my buying experience second to none. He made the process as easy and painless as you could possibly imagine. I would highly recommend his services to anyone that is looking to buy or sell and I plan on using his services again in the future. ~ Matt Mikkelsen, Huxley
    Ethan was great, made things simple and got my house sale pending in 2 days! Such a smooth process for a big change in life! ~ Brook Hanks Madrid
    I am glad we chose Ethan to sale our home. We felt confident that with his reputation and experience in the Huxley area, he would do a great job selling our home and he didn't let us down! He was great to work with. We will definitely recommend Ethan to others looking to buy or sale a home. ~ Gary and Dianna Bucher, Huxley, IA
    Ethan was extremely professional in dealing with my mother's home sale. Always polite, courteous and respectful. He also did a great job communicating the complicated real estate processes and explaining everything in terms that made sense to us. Thanks Ethan! ~ M. Thomas, Huxley
    Ethan was such a great asset throughout our entire home buying process. He listened to exactly what we were looking for, notified us of homes just coming on the market, and got us in to see several homes in a timely manner. Once we found one we loved, he was extremely helpful throughout negotiations and the entire closing process. On our final walk-through, he was in contact with the selling agent about anything we noticed and got us a quick response. I would recommend Ethan to anyone looking for a great real estate agent. ~ Cara and Colin, Slater
    I quite literally would have had no idea how to maneuver this home buying territory without Ethan! I am super appreciative of how patient he was with me during this process to make sure that I was getting exactly what I wanted, but more importantly that I UNDERSTOOD each step that we went through as well as the purpose behind it! Ethan made my first home buying experience a breeze! In what could have been a massively stressful process, Ethan walked me through each step of the way with genuine care for what I wanted out of a home. Once I made a decision, he ensured that I was taking care of business on my end in a timely manner, and was so awesome about touching base with me to see if I was satisfied with all the pieces involved in the home buying puzzle. His demeanor was nothing but positive, and I felt super comfortable reaching out about any questions I had along the way! (I had lots of questions, you could say my background knowledge on houses is slim to none) Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I feel so much more confident about where my money is going in this home and I will be recommending Ethan to everyone I know when they are in the process of buying and selling their own homes! Ethan is the man! ~ Kailey Bueker

    If you are trying to sell your property, you can't go wrong with Ethan. My place sold quickly and required little-to-no effort on my part.

The whole process could not have been smoother. Thanks Ethan! ~ Charlie Strawn, Ames
    Ethan has been one of my good friends for a very long time but in his role of helping me he was very thorough.

He would absolutely be the first person I mention when finding out about someone buying or selling a home. ~ Trent Weatherman- Ankeny

We are grateful for all the work that Ethan helped us with! If youre looking for a great realtor to sell your home quickly we would recommend Ethan in a heartbeat! ~ Ryan and Amina Cook, Ankeny
    Ethan was recommend by a number of people and after working with him I understand why. The first meeting I had with him I let him know what I was looking for in a house and Ethan was able to find the perfect one that checked all of the boxes. He kept me informed throughout the process and even checked in on me after the closing to see how things were going. His service is top notch and you can tell how much he cares! ~ Rich, Huxley, IA
    All of Ethan's staff were very friendly and accessible. They made sure they were in communication with us throughout the process, especially as big events/deadlines approached. All-around excellent service. ~ Robert, Ankeny, IA
    When I contacted Century 21Signature the receptionist listened to what I was asking for in a realtor. She then suggested Ethan, he is eager to help new clients. My husband and I needed a realtor who had time for us, to listen what we wanted in our home to be. He set up numerous homes to go through until we chose the right one for us!! When we had questions, and we did. Ethan jumped through hoops many times to resolve issues we were disappointed with and he got right back to us. We are grateful for Ethan taking us under his wings and would recommend definitely refer others to Ethan! ~ Donna
    Ethan is very patient and understanding. Any questions you might have he has an answer for it. ~ Austin Weigel, Slater
    I started off selling my home as "anti realtor" as I've always disliked the 7% concept. My thoughts are the process should be a "fixed" fee approach. Why not 3%? Why not 10%? How did the industry stop on 7%? Agents will work the same on a $500k house as they would a $200k house. That being said, I originally used a company that got me on the MLS at .5%. It was definitely not worth the hassle and extra work I had to do to try and save on the real estate commission fee. Ethan made the experience an excellent one and as I stated before, I would say that even if I didn't have multiple offers in the first few days. There is not one thing he could have done to work harder in order to get my house sold, communicate throughout the "dead" time waiting for closing or in performing our closing. He went above and beyond and even personally delivered our check at the end of the process. He came highly recommended from others in the community that used him in the past. I know see and understand what all of the rave is about regarding his work ethic and communications. I highly recommend Ethan and have already spread the word on how pleased I was with the entire home selling process. Ethan had his coop business partner, Roger Wheeler come to my home and they provided an excellent assessment on the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities to show the house better. I was very impressed with the thouroughness. I know I'm not the easist client to deal with but Ethan doesn't let grass grow under his feet and was always 1 step ahead of me in communications at all times. I've sold at least 4 other houses in the past and it's been a frustrating experience. Not 1 time was I ever frustrated with the service of Mr. Hokel and I would say that even if my house didn't have multiple offers in the first 3 days. ~ Randy Wright Huxley Iowa
    Ethan came highly recommended from a friend. I needed someone who knew the area well and would be willing to work with me since i was unsure about putting my house on the market. Ethan answered any questions i had, no matter the time of day he was available! I was hesitant about putting my house on the market and Ethan assured me he would take care of everything. ~ Tera Lilly, Huxley
    Ethan was easy to work with from the beginning. We were concerned that a realtor would try to talk us into something too expensive or not what we wanted but that wasnt an issue with Ethan. He wasnt pushy and would just present us with as many options as possible that met our criteria. He would bring up things he felt were concerning and would share his honest opinion whenever we asked. He was patient with us for months while looking through several houses. Once we had an offer accepted, the process was very smooth. He would let us know if anything needed signed and we could sign it electronically which made it super easy. I would definitely work with Ethan again. ~ Curtis Weeks, Huxley
    Ethan has always been a great real estate agent for my needs. He sold me my home in the fall and then due to a job change, listed and sold the home for me 8 months later. He was able to sell my home in three days and I couldn't be happier with the experience. I would recommend Ethan to anyone looking for a real estate agent. He does a great job and I am thankful to have met him and to call him a friend. ~ Chad Cook, West Des Moines

    I loved working with Ethan on the purchase of my first home! Ethan was very efficient with communication and was always available when needed. He made sure no question went unanswered, even though I had many as a first time home buyer. Ethan always accommodated convenient showings even with my not so flexible work schedule. Ethan was professional throughout the home buying process while also providing a relaxed and friendly experience. I would most definitely recommend Ethan to friends and family! ~ Randi Pool, Huxley
    Ethan is wonderful and very knowledgeable to work with. From the very first time meeting him he was friendly and helpful. We viewed townhomes the first part of the day and switched gears a little bit and a hour later he met us to view homes in the area. I wanted a move in date within a month of looking and we were able to make that work! His timely manner and communication are fantastic and I am so glad he was recommended by a friend and couldnt be happier in my first home! ~ Courtney Danzer, Ankeny
    He was phenomenal! Couldn't have asked for a better realtor he went above and beyond and never disappointed. He should be awarded realtor of the year! ~ Zach and Brittney Swanson
    I was looking for a realtor to do an appraisal of my home and someone recommended Ethan on Facebook. I called him and explained that I wanted an appraisal and had planned to sell my house but didn't want to list it for several months. We live out of state and wanted to have some time to clear out the house and clean up the property prior to listing. Ethan was very understanding and did the appraisal. Next thing I knew I had multiple offers on the house prior to even listing it! Ethan kept our property in mind when he had buyers that were looking for what we had. Ethan did a great job managing our time table with the buyer and went out of his way to be there when we couldn't be for work that had to be done as a result of the inspection. The whole experience from start to finish couldn't have been easier thanks to Ethan. ~ Katharine Mueller, Ames, IA
    Have experienced previous transactions with Ethan and were great. We did not look anywhere for listing and selling besides Ethan. Ethan goes out of his way in all of these areas to be at or above satisfaction. ~ Greg Vickroy
    Ethan was great in every aspect of my homebuying experience. Being only 25 and buying my first home can be stressful, and Ethan made the process simple and easy going. Was super attentive when I had questions. After working with Ethan I couldn't see myself working with another realtor. ~ Cole McDonald Boone, IA
    Ethan went above and beyond our expectations! We feel like we made a new friend in the process. Really appreciated Ethan. We are really thankful for our time working with Ethan. He was so prompt in responding to any question or concern we had and really went out of his way to make time for us, in the search process and in the closing process. We would highly recommend Ethan as a Real Estate agent - he's professional and personal! ~ Jillian and Jared, Adel, Iowa

    Ethan was amazing during the process of selling our home. He was very responsive and understanding of our needs.

    Honest, knowledgable, respectful, trustworthy, ethical and dedicated are a few words that automatically come to mind when thinking about Ethan Hokel. When I first met Eathan Hokel he was very respectful of our needs. He took the time to listen to what type of home we needed and our time frame for purchasing. He understood all of our requirements and helped us constantly find homes that fit our criteria. From day 1 he knew what we needed and worked to best assist us in our home selection process throughout. This was our first home purchase, and Ethan was our first real estate agent. Even without exposure to other real estate agent's I am 100% confident in saying Ethan is the best. In our home search process we've switched direction a few times, and he was immediately on par. Ethan was very professional throughout the entire process. He was not pushy and he never pushed for a sale. He was very knowledgeable on how the market worked and made sure we've got the best deal out there. He always gave his honest opinion for every home we've looked at together. After every home viewing he followed up and heard our opinion. He was very respectful of our opinions each and every time. If you need to buy/sell your home Ethan should be a very high consideration. He will work with you to ensure you get the best deal. If you want an honest real estate agent he is your guy. Knowing that you are in the right hands in a crazy market makes all the difference. He will put your needs 1st each and every time. He is very approachable throughout the entire process, and will answer any questions you have timely. If you want to work with someone who treats you as the only client, you won't make a mistake working with Ethan. It is very difficult to to write down all the positives with Ethan because there are so many. All in all, hands down the best real estate agent out there. If I ever need to buy/sell in the future, it will always be with Ethan. ~ Anel & Zineta - Urbandale, IA
    Ethan made the whole process seem incredibly easy. To say that Ethan went above and beyond would be an understatement. We will be recommending him to anyone and everyone that we know in this area when it comes to searching for a home. The best out there by far. ~ Brian, Huxley
    My husband met Ethan Hokel on the sidelines of youth football. Ethan was volunteering his time and coaching 3rd &4th grade youth. Ethan made such an impact on my husband that he came home & said if we ever sell, we will use that guy. He recognized his hard work ethic, dedication, passion & ease to talk to. Fast forward 2 years & here we are writing a review about Ethan Hokel selling our home before it even hit the market!! Woot woot!! I can not thank Ethan enough. He truly lived up to the attributes that my husband had described. He worked hard for us while making the whole process look easy.

    Ethan worked very hard for us and was always available to answer a phone call, no matter the time of day. That was fantastic for us because this was our first house that we have had to sell and didn't know everything that was going on, so we had a lot of questions. Ethan was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain to us what was going on, what was going to happen, what we needed to do, and why it needed to happen. We had accepted a job that required us to move before our property was sold. This did not stop Ethan from working hard for us, he even took extra steps to make sure we could follow through with selling our house without needing to commute back to the Des Moines area to do so, this was extremely convenient and we are extremely thankful for that. We would recommend Ethan because he is willing to put in the leg work to solve any problems that may arise quickly and effectively, he also is not going to shy away if an issue does come up. We had several issues with our property and Ethan always communicated with us what the problems were and the steps he was going to take to solve the issue. If you are someone who does not like a lot of communication and likes to be left in the dark, then I would NOT recommend Ethan Hokel to you. However, if you require an abundance of communication and want to always be made aware of what is going on and where you are in the process, then we highly recommend Ethan to you. ~ Stephen Settlage Des Moines
    We were very impressed with Ethan, he was extremely professional throughout the home buying process. His knowledge of the Huxley area was one of the main reasons we were compelled to use him.

    I needed to find a home very quickly within specific school boundaries. He immediately responded and showed me homes the following day.

    I am an Real Estate Investor and I buy property all over the country. I purchased a home in Maxwell, IA which required a full rehab.

    The owner/seller lived in this house for 60 years and had never sold a house before. She had no knowledge of who to list her home with, so her son checked with the local banker who recommended Ethan Hokel. Ethan provided suggestions for how to prepare and stage the house for selling. We followed his recommendations. The house was listed on March 9th, had showings the same day, multiple offers were received and an offer was accepted on March 10th, less than 24 hours after being listed. We would recommend Ethan Hokel as he was very knowledgeable and very proactive in his communication with us. He made sure to let us know what to expect during the process, as well as sent reminders of things we needed to be sure and do (such as cancel utilities, insurance, etc.) and a timeframe for doing them. ~ Judy Klonglan, Slater
    Our house sold to a buyer that had asked for first options to look at our house before we were ready to put it on the market. The buyer was a friend of our next door neighbor. Because of that Ethan was not involved in a sales campaign. His communication with us was very complete and easy to understand. Told us all the steps, time line and what we would need to do each step of the way. Ethan was able to save us some money in negotiating costs with the buyers and in finding the a reasonably priced radon mitigation provider. ~ Marion & Carolyn Wissler, Des Moines, IA

It would be a mistake to go anywhere else for all your homebuying needs! ~ Caitlyn Boldt, Newton Iowa
    Ethan was given a tough house to sell. We knew going into it that it was not going to sell overnight. He did all he could to get buyers thru and make the sale happen.

We are happy with our new home and glad to have the move behind us. ~ Jeanna Hampel, Des Moines

After we closed on the house, Ethan did a great job of following up after the sale. We highly recommend using Ethan for any of your real estate needs. ~ Chris & Rachael Schaudt, Alleman, Iowa
    I Would highly reccommend Ethan Hokel when buying or selling a home. Not only is he very polite and proffesional, he is also very knowledgeable about homes. when my girlfriend and i first met with Ethan we were nervous and after the first meeting we felt very comfortable.. He walked us through the process of buying a house from beginning to end and let us know what to expect as we moved forward! Not only did Ethan satisfy all of our needs, he was very accesable day or night and responded quickly to any questions and concerns. If you are looking for someone that is patient and wants to make you happy with your purchase, then Ethan Hokel is your guy! ~ Tyler McKee and Ashley Risius
    Ethan Hokel showed us about 10-12 houses and we weren't finding what we wanted. Ethan said he had been listening to our comments and feedback about the first 10-12 houses and mentioned he had a listing he thinks we would like. Well, he was correct and we bought the house. I really appreciate that he was listening to our comments during the showings, then was able to steer us in the right direction, and ultimately found us find what we wanted. As first time home-buyers, Ethan made the process very easy for us. Ethan was also genuinely honest, and set our expectations reasonably. He was upfront with the negative aspects of each situation so we were never surprised about any issue, or negotiation. Communication was prompt, if he wasn't able to answer, he returned calls and emails within minutes. Lastly, Ethan does the small things that really make a difference. For example, he had dish soap, laundry detergent, and TP, amongst many other gifts waiting for us at the home when we moved in. We weren't expecting anything like that, so it really showed us that he cared and wanted us to be happy! I highly recommend Ethan Hokel and Century21 ~ Marc Lorence, Des Moines

    I had told Ethan what we were looking for and when he brought me a list of properties, the places I had been looking at were on the list! He pays attention to everything you say that you want. I went through two other Realtors before him, one for not giving us the time of day and one because he couldn't pay attention to my needs. Ethan never tried to sell me what I couldn't afford and never wasted my time with anything that I didn't want. We had a mix up with things that were required for the home and Ethan took the time and his own commission to get it set straight. I never had to worry about the realtor side of my experience. I jumped through flaming hoops for my lender but Ethan was always happy to call and sort through Iowa regulations since I used an out of state lender. Ethan went above and beyond the call of duty so many times that I'm not sure I could say enough! I will absolutely be recommending him to everyone I meet. ~ Staci Hansen, Indianola IA
