After having a rather poor experience with another realty company, we contacted Jared for advice. This was 5 years ago, and we always remembered Jared's professional character and knowledge about the local real estate market. He took the time to explain things to us and showed us respect even though we weren't his clients at the time. He's just a very nice person. So when we were ready to sell our home, we remembered how Jared shared his expertise with us, and we immediately called Jared Van Cleave to handle the sale of our home. He was excellent to work with and we appreciate everything he did for us. Our house sold fast with Jared!

We LOVED working with Jared! Obviously the results could not have been better- multiple full-price offers on the first day our house was listed. But more important than that, we felt genuinely cared for by Jared. If we sell again in the future, I wouldn't want to work with anyone besides Jared.

Jared developed a "sixth sense" to what my wife was looking for in a house. He directed her towards properties that he thought she would be interested in.

He was very patient as we navigated the "where" we wanted to be (community-wise).

Very honest and trustworthy.

Jared is a credit to the real estate business. He makes it easy to want to do business with!

A bank loan officer recommended Jared Van Cleave. When Jared visited the house for a close look, he showed his knowledge and appreciation of 1950s homes, their construction, etc. When I told Jared that I was down to 2 brokers, Jared and another, he provided additional helpful information and displayed further knowledge and appreciation of the type of modest house I had and its neighborhood that tipped the balance in his favor. He provided comparison information from similar homes and neighborhoods. He and the other broker identified similar problems with the house, but had different ways to deal with them. Both had similar sales strategies, but I felt Jared's was more realistic.

The sale process went smoothly. He was very quick to respond to my questions and never rolled his eyes. We were in perfect agreement on the sales strategy. Jared kept me informed on the progress toward closing.

Jared was exactly what I needed in a real estate agent.

This is the second time I've used Jared Van Cleave for a realtor. When I decided to sell my house and buy a new one just a few months before my wedding, I knew it was a long shot. Thankfully Jared is super efficient, calm, and creative. He helped make what could have been a super stressful time in my life become a super exciting one instead. Thanks to his networking and knowledge of the area, my house sold in a day and he found me a new one within a week....in the school district I wanted and within my price range. Once we got this done, he continued to send me regular emails to help me keep track of all the details and was great at responding promptly to all my last minute texts. I'm so thankful for Jared. His help and my new house are definitely an answer to my prayers. I hope to never move again but if I have to, I'll definitely have Jared be my realtor.

I would highly recommend Jared's services to anybody moving into the Ames area for the first time. He was responsive, knowledgeable about the local area, and willing to do the extra steps to make the home-buying process as easy as possible.

For instance, we were unable to travel to Ames in person for a visit, so he offered to take us on a video tour. His video tour was almost just as good as an in-person visit. He showed us everything, gave us a great feel for the house, and left us feeling comfortable making an offer without an in-person visit.

Also, throughout closing he was attentive, well-organized, and extremely helpful answering questions. He would send weekly updates as closing approached with detailed lists outlining the next steps so that you never felt like you had to chase him to find out what was going on. By far the best real estate agent I've worked with, and an extraordinary professional.

Jared was absolutely great! He is extremely knowledgeable about homes, and was able to point out components of homes we never would have known had he not been there. He was very approachable and really worked to find us homes that fit within our budget and style preferences. He was communicative, pleasant, and provided us with meaningful feedback when we asked for it. Put simply, it didn't feel like it was just about the money with Jared.

My Wife and I discussed the possibility of, but decided against, selling our home a couple of years prior to actually listing it this past August. We were blown away with the amount of information Jared provided us during that first meeting. He was thoroughly prepared with information about the market in our area which allowed us to understand the valuation of our house and make informed decisions.

In addition to Jared's professionalism we felt very aligned and comfortable with his personality and values. Even though we decided against moving at that time, we carried with us the next couple of years the knowledge that we had found our Real Estate Agent whenever we did decide to sell.

We had received several recommendations for realtors from friends - but we hadn't had time to meet with these realtors or evaluate them. Jared Van Cleave had recently sold the houses of other friends - and they had good experiences and recommended him to us - and had also given him our name. Soon after Jared came to introduce himself to us when we were having coffee with these friends. He also followed up to inform us he had a young couple who he thought would be interested in our house - so it was very easy for us just to work with him. He was very pleasant and cooperative to work with - and of course - it was very nice for us that he had just the right client for our house !! So we would be happy to recommend Jared to other sellers - and know he would do all he could to make their home selling experience as simple as possible for them. And best of all - he explains - and handles - all that paperwork for the seller !

We could not have asked for a better agent. Jared was exceptional. He was professional, yet personable. He was very knowledgeable about the market, the community, and every aspect of selling a house. He was able to convey to us valuable information regarding the market and how he arrived at the dollar amount he thought our house was worth in a manner that was easily understood. He was also able to convey to us the step by step process of selling our house and the time frame of events. He and his office effectively communicated to us frequently the status of our paperwork and what we needed to do when. Jared always answered our questions promptly and sought out resolutions and answers with a quick turnaround. Jared's ability to assess a house and match it to the right buyer is outstanding! He is definitely in the right career as he is able to use all his gifts to serve others with integrity. Jared was also able to help us find another agent out of state where we were relocating and gave us tips in finding a house and agent. In a time in our life when everything was changing and people were unreliable, Jared was a steady presence that always did what he said he was going to do and we knew we could count on him. Although we have moved out of state, we have and will always recommend Jared to all our friends as the perfect real estate agent!

He was very understanding how difficult it was to sell our family home but also realistic in helping us decide how to price and market the home. He was very patient when needed and gave great advice!

Due to our relocation with my company, we were required to make a choice between Jared and another realtor. Both were impressive. We ultimately decided on Jared due to our familiarity with his personality and approach, his success in our market (both as a listing agent and buying agent), and how responsive and honest he is. There are times when a client needs to hear things that he/she may not want to hear. Jared always had a way of communicating those messages directly and not shying away. We respected that and ultimately that engendered a greater degree of trust.

Jared is outstanding to work with. We had used him before during the purchase of our home and were blown away by our experience working with him at that time. We were very comfortable working with Jared on the sale of our home. During his listing presentation to us, he was incredibly prepared and walked us through how he arrived at the conclusions he arrived at, answering all of our questions along the way. When we were finally ready to list, he was able to masterfully coordinate the pictures, online campaign, and social media blitz to effectively market our home for the quick, yet top dollar sale that we needed.

Jared and his team came through and delivered on each of the objectives we challenged him with. All the while, he was kind, courteous, had top-notch communication, and always made time for any questions or needs we wished to discuss.

If life's twists and turns ever bring us back to the Ames area, we will once again, immediately call upon Jared and his team to help our dreams become realities.

Jared and his team were very easy to work with. The whole process was almost effortless. We ended up accepting an offer on our home within hours of listing it, and we accepted a price $10k above asking. As an acreage it's a tricky home to market as it's not like other "residential" properties. Finding comparables, and networking with prospective buyers requires intimate knowledge of the local market which he and his team had. Highly recommended!

Thank you Jared for you help. Selling something that is 500 miles from where you live could have been very stressful, but you made it as painless as possible. We truly appreciate everything you did for us in the selling process, and when we originally bought it also. It's not often you find someone who takes the time and personally makes sure everything goes as it should. The rest of your team should be commended also. We were kept informed throughout the sales process

Jared is an outstanding person as well as Real Estate agent. He and his staff are professional, responsive, customer focused and committed to exceeding customer needs. He helped guide me in property selection, identification of pitfalls, negotiate a great price as well early entry, provided outstanding support personnel for inspections, etc, kept me informed throughout the process and handled the multiple seller issues with patience and grace while fairly representing my interests and position. I work as a Quality Mgr and when I first selected Jared I used a rigorous interview and rating system to compare his services on all aspects of the real estate process and support against the best real estate professionals in the area who had the most experience, recommendations and sales. Jared came out on top. He is a winner and you will not be disappointed. I wholeheartedly recommend him and his staff.

Jared is diligent in his responses to questions. He is willing to go the extra mile when finding a house suitable for you. His character speaks volumes of his work. This is a man who truly has money at the bottom of his priority list and who really seeks to serve others.

Jared was out of town for a family matter when our house first came on the market. This is when we got to work more closely with his associate Katie Reideman. She did not hesitate to get in touch to tell us that a house that fit all our needs had just came on the market and we needed to look at it. We viewed, discussed and placed an offer on the home under her guidance. Katie was phenomenal to work with and took time out of her evening (it was late to be viewing a house) to take care of us. This is another person who truly has a servant heart.

As fast as homes sell in Ames, people suggested we sell our home ourselves. I think they highly underestimate not just the time, but the knowledge and experience that goes into selling a home and being able to walk away from the transaction knowing every "I" was dotted and "t" was crossed. This is what Jared made sure was done, he gave us the peace of mind needed in the stressful time of buying, selling, and moving.

When we called Jared Van Cleave about listing our home, he quickly set up a time to visit with us, take a look at the house, review what he would do for us, and let us know what to expect.. Once we signed the papers to list, we were amazed that we had over 21 showing within 11 days and three offers by the 12th day. If anyone is looking for a broker that will give you their full attention and make you feel like you are the only one with a house on the market, that broker would be Jared Van Cleave. Our experience could not have been any better. Thanks Jared Van Cleave!

Excellent skills exhibited during home showings and writing documents. Very quick to respond to inquiries. Keen knowledge of construction and repair that was especially helpful during the inspection. Would highly recommend Jared for any future purchase.

I have always trusted and appreciated the direct and candid communication from Jared and his team. Jared has been around Ames for a long time and knows the market so well.

My sale was so smooth and I got the price that I wanted. Felt like I was in good hands the whole time.

Thanks Team JVC!

Jared was a fantastic agent. He took the time to listen and understand what I was looking for in a home. He always got back to me quickly. He's very knowledgable and honest. I always knew he was looking out for my best interest. I'd recommend him to anyone!

Jared is honest, timely and super helpful! I felt like he genuinely took care of us and what ever decisions had to be made he would give his honest opinion but it felt like it was for our best interest. He never came off pushy or salesman like. His knowledge helped give us a lot of reassurance as well. We've dealt with a realtor who was a newbie and it was a nightmare, I'm pretty sure we called Jared more asking for his advice and input on our new move in a different town. He's seriously awesome!

Jared sold our friends' home very quickly and they highly recommended him. They have high standards and I knew that if they were satisfied, it was worth interviewing Jared for the sale of our home. A friend of mine was with me as I interviewed Jared, and I didn't realize that she used to work for realtors so when she was impressed, it further encouraged me. He also understood our position and that listing it at a price that my husband was comfortable with, which was higher than Jared was initially comfortable with, was critical. My husband was impressed with Jared and Laura when we met with them again, and we both felt heard and understood. He and Laura were accommodating, gracious and kind. They are people that I was glad to meet and that I like.

I truly enjoyed all communications with Jared and Laura. They are good people to deal with and enjoyable as well. Always professional yet caring.

I recommended Jared to my sister-in-law, and Jared sold her home immediately. I have recommended him often to others, even those living in the Des Moines area where we now reside. It was a very good experience. It was extremely difficult to part with this home and came at a difficult time, when I had to be out of the state for a few weeks, but they made the process easier. Jared and Laura sold our home in 28 days!

Jared did a wonderful job on all aspects of getting my home ready to sell. He always responded promptly to any questions or concerns I had. He was very patient, kind and thoughtful in every way. I very much appreciated his real estate expertise!

When my son bought his first home in Ames, Jared was very helpful and worked extremely hard to find him his first home. When it was time for me to downsize, I immediately thought of Jared and wanted to work with him to sell my home and help me find my new home. He was successful all around.

Jared is a hardworking, caring, and very professional. I have and will recommend him to my family and friends.

Jared Van Cleave is an amazing realtor with an outstanding reputation. His word of mouth recommendations from former clients, and reputation within the community was a critical factor for us when selecting his services.

Jared Van Cleave helped us get the best offer for our home! He even fielded offers and helped negotiate while away at a family reunion. His dedication and swift action helped us sell our home in one day and for 10,000 over asking!!!

Jared Van Cleave and Century 21 has an amazing team. Laura Weems was exceptionally helpful dealing with closing details and proceeds.

We have used Whitney Funkhouser for all our buying needs and she always does an amazing job of giving an accurate picture of the market. It was her recommendation that encouraged us to sell our home and purchase our dream home. She was even spot on with the amount she said we could get. Whitney is amazing!!!

Now that we purchased our very own dream home, we may not need Jared or Whitney's services anytime soon, but we will gladly recommend them to all our friends and family.

We had unique situation with the sale of our home. My job took me to Atlanta, GA and my wife and 3 kids stayed in our home in Ames, IA until it sold. We didn't know how long that would take. We couldn't make an offer on a home in GA until we had a binding contract with no contingencies. Needless to say, lots of unknowns, but we needed our home in IA to sell ASAP so we could "move on" and start a new life.

Jared was amazing during the whole process. He presented market information and comparable home sales in the region and helped us make an educated starting listing price. We only made a couple adjustments to our price at Jared's recommendation. He was very aware and concerned with our "NET" takeaway at the end. He cared for us through the difficulty and stress of tons of showings, multiple offers, and money conversations.

Jared's team at Century 21 was on top of every detail almost faster than they came around. I was never left with unanswered questions or cloudy details.

It took longer than we hoped it would, but that was completely due to the specifics of our circumstances. If anything, Jared kept us sane throughout the stress of selling a home.

Wanna buy or sell a home in the Central Iowa area? Jared Van Cleave is your guy.

Jared Van Cleave understood what my needs were and directed me to what I was looking for in a home. He excelled in negotiating with difficult sellers. And was awesome at helping me to visualize my "new home" with some simple changes. Jared communicated extremely well with me. He answered all phone calls, e-mails and text messages with extreme swiftness. I never had to wonder if he was doing his best to help me find a new home to live in. He was always there for me.

Great guy to work with. He has great values concerning his work ethic and family which we can totally agree with. He never once dropped the ball. He didn't get all jittery when finding out the loan closing was going to be delayed for couple days. He is a great guy and worked very hard between us and the seller's to make sure everyone knew what was going on and what the next step would be. We really felt Jarred went in and above to make everything work for everyone involved.

Jared is a model agent who puts the needs of his customer first. He is completely focused on what the client wants, and seeks to meet that intent with either a sale or a purchase. He stays connected with his clients because he develops a relationship with them. He stayed in touch with us for five years while we lived in a home he sold us, and then kept us updated on the real estate market in case we were thinking about selling. When we were ready to look for another home, he made the process of buying and selling incredibly smooth. We highly recommend Jared to any customers in central Iowa.

Jared was very knowledgable about property and uses for homes for rental purposes. He was great at explaining the details of the process and expectations. The overall experience was handled above and beyond the expectation of a Realtor as he managed all of the coordination for needed inspections, repairs and appointments. He was also very trustworthy and honest. I would highly recommend Jared for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

For decades we lived in a house purchased from a family member who had it designed by an architect and built in 1940. It was not easy for us to put it on the market and leave the long-time neighborhood that we loved. Sensitive, focused on our needs and an excellent teacher, Jared Van Cleave explained the process of selling clearly and with infinite patience. Always positive and reassuring, Jared Van Cleave was an excellent problem solver. Even if he was out-of-town, he responded quickly to all of our inquiries. Jared Van Cleave is knowledgeable, ethical and ready to lend a hand when needed. We value his generosity of spirit and his sense of humor. Simply put, he is very good at what he does and we were very lucky to have him as our realtor.

This was my first experience selling a house. My father built the house completely by himself for my mother. So it was extremely difficult to put the house on the market. Jared was absolutely wonderful because he was dealing with all of my families emotions and our reluctance to sell a home with all of our memories wrapped up in it. He was patient and informative and above all patient. He made the experience less painful and there are no words to describe how grateful we are. He was a blessing! 5.0
