  • Adele made the ease of a very difficult and emotional time so much easier to handle. - Carol Peterson
  • In late November I transferred to a new company and my wife and I set out on a new journey to relocate from Blaine, MN to Des Moines, IA. Our relocation company connected us to Adele Zieser and Iowa Realty. From the first conversation with Adele I could tell this experience was going to be different than that of our last relocation Realtor. Adele reached out to us quickly and started gathering information as to what we were looking for and the areas of town that might be the best fit for us. While we were still working to get our Blaine, MN home on the market Adele was already sending us information on homes that might fit our needs. Once our home had sold and we were ready to buy Adele set aside an entire weekend to help us locate that perfect home. On Saturday when we meet she had a book of listings and we were off to see them. After looking at 12 or so homes we were still in need of that perfect home. We spent some additional time that evening with Adele recalibrating what we were wanting to look at the following day. Sunday morning we met again and we headed out to find our home. By the end of the second day Adele had helped us write the offer on our new home. Our experience was great and Adele did a fantastic job for us. We not only got a home but we made a new friend in the process....Adele, Many Thanks for all your help.....You Rock! - Stan & Marlene Perry...Johnston, IA
  • Perfect Realtor

    Adele helped us purchase two condos in downtown Des Moines. She seamlessly guided us through the entire purchase process making it enjoyable yet professional. Her strong negotiation skills coupled with her broad knowledge of the real estate market not only helped us buy at a great price point but also makes her the perfect real estate agent. We were glad to have Adele on our side! - Greg K
  • Provides excellent advice

    We hired Adele to sell our house in 2015 and she did a great job. Our sale was a little tricky as we were building a new home and didn't want to sell too early, yet we didn't want to miss the selling season. Adele put together a great plan and we sold it in a perfect time frame--or near perfect as the builder encountered unexpected delays--at 98% of our asking price. She provided excellent advice throughout the process, especially about when and when not to change the price. Her idea of adding a discount on closing costs as a 30 day sweeter really did the trick. We highly recommend Adele for anyone looking to sell their Des Moines-area home. - Art and Nell S.
  • Professional and organized

    Adele was a great realtor to work with and a refreshing experience since I had already had a bad experience with a different realtor.

    Adele was very professional and organized which is what you want in a realtor.  We moved from out of state but knew where we wanted to live in the DSM area.  Adele was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and knew what we were looking for in a house.  She showed up with packets and information for us about the houses we planned to look at.  She was not trying to sell us a house, just help us get the one that we wanted.  She was prompt, organized, works a lot of hours just for you, and she really cares about what house you want.

    I would highly recommend Adele. You will be pleasantly surprised and relieved as she is what you want in a realtor!

  • Strong negotiator

    I highly recommend Adele for real estate representation.  Having worked with a number of real estate agents over the years, we were very impressed with her knowledge of the area, her ability to find options that suited our interests, and her ability to focus our efforts and time on high probability options.  We quickly found a home that exceeded our expectations, and she was confident, professional and a strong negotiator on our behalf.  We recommend Adele at every opportunity.

    - Joel F.
  • Worked tirelessly

    Adele truly went above and beyond for me and my home search and buying process.  She was sensitive to my needs and limitations, and worked tirelessly to help me navigate the market.  And she did most of this as I was working halfway across the country!

    Adele also offered great advice to me as a first time home buyer.  She gave me tips on what to look for in a home inspection, who to contact for home work and what to ask for in negotiations.  She also helped fast track the mortgage process.

    But above all, I could tell Adele cared about finding the right home for me at the right price and she continued to be helpful months after the process was completed.  I highly recommend her!

  • Hard working

    Adele Zieser has been a wonderful realtor. She is determined, hard-working, very organized and a very strong communicator.  When we had questions she was unable to answer, she inquired and got answers to us shortly thereafter.  She is classy and professional and provided us with several different options as we searched for a condo in downtown Des Moines for our daughter.  She developed a strong relationship with our daughter and wanted a place that best suited her while staying within our budget. Adele is on her  way to being a very successful realtor!
