    We had a wonderful experience working with Tom! He was incredibly patient and helped us look at dozens of houses before we found "the one". Tom wasn't afraid to "tell it like it is" and we really appreciated his honesty and transparency while looking at properties. Tom also has an extensive knowledge of the Des Moines metro area which was VERY helpful as we were moving in from out of town. We can't thank Tom enough for all he did for us!
  • Seller review
    I would highly recommend Tom Stender-Custer. His knowledge and personality made selling our house a seamless process.
  • Buyer review
    Tom went above and beyond. I was, admittedly, a difficult customer. I have been looking for a home for almost a year and more than a little frustrated. I wasn't even sure what I wanted after looking all that time. He was very patient and accommodating.
  • Buyer review
    For two first time homebuyers who didn't think we would be buying a home for another few decades, Tom and the team were there for us every step of the way. Tom made a stressful situation, fun and easy... and fast! We 100% recommend Tom and team for anyone buying or selling a home, they care for you.
  • Seller review
    Tom Stender-Custer puts people at ease and is very hospitable. I always knew Tom was approaching the sale of my house with enthusiasm for real estate and growing knowledge of Des Moines. I was in good hands. All the extras Tom did for me, remembering my birthday, helping with house preparation prior to sale, and helping resolve an electrical issue post sale. Tom didn't have to do all of that. He went above expectations, and his offer of help was so genuinely offered, I felt comfortable accepting the help. I don't think I could have removed some of those items from the tile in my kitchen without Tom's help. It's easy to recommend Tom Stender-Custer to family and friends. He'll take good care of my people, he'll stay in touch without being a pest, and entertain them too with his fun stories. Thank you for everything, Tom. My sale went GREAT!
  • Buyer review
    Tom was the first person I reached out to, because of our mutual contacts. Once we began working with him, it was clear that there was no reason to look for another broker. Tom's philosophy of "Love where you live" and his dedication to listening to our hopes and dreams for our new home were a perfect match for our needs. Tom was great--always available, helpful as we considered our options, patient as we moved through the process. Even after we closed on our new home, Tom has continued to be available to us, helping us with the various things that we need as we prepare to move. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for a new home in the Des Moines area.
