Home Sweet Home! We braved the snow & -28 degree temperatures yesterday to pick up our keys! We are OFFICIALLY back to our favorite town, beautiful Solon, IA. It has always been a dream of both of ours to move back someday. A dream we thought would be far fetched but we were brought into each others lives less than two years ago & through a crazy (and very stressful) year of wedding planning & deciding to build a home on top of that, it somehow all came together. So thankful for my husband & all the hard work he did completing projects late every single night. He worked countless hours on personal touches at the house. Thankful also for our families for all they did to ease some of the stress during the building & moving process & to our friends for all the love & support. Lastly to Brent Votroubek, our realtor (and great friend) for everything! You have been amazing help along the whole way. We are so ready to start making memories together on Hendricks Lane. ❤️

– Haley Holub , February 2019

I've been fortunate enough to work with Brent on both ends of the spectrum. He helped me purchase my first home, and also helped me sell my home recently (not to mention, in the least ideal time to try and be selling your home amidst Iowa winters, record history low temps, and piles of snow). Brent did a phenomenal job making my husband and I feel at ease and a part of the process every step of the way. His communication, follow through, and customer service level was something everyone should be so lucky to experience during their home buying/selling experience. Brent made what is typically a super stressful time in our lives, easy and painless. I would 100% recommend Brent and the Votroubek Real Estate Group to anyone! Thank you so much!

– Erin Knupp, January 2019

My realtor is better than your realtor. 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 Not only did he sell our house in less than one week, but made sure everything went as smooth as possible for the new house! I’ve never met a more helpful or responsive realtor in my life. Thank you for all of these welcome gifts, for all of your time, patience, and help! I’m so thankful for you, old friend! Moving? Use Brent! You will have the best experience possible when moving.

– Stevee Bloomquist , December 2018

Mark and Wendy Votroubek from Skogman did an excellent job for us! With years of experience in real estate, they gave me great advice through the selling process and were very attentive with our needs! I’m proud to say this is the second home they have sold for us! The Votroubek team is definitely top notch!

– Gary Suby , November 2018

Cheers 🥂 to one week in our new home! Thank you Brent Votroubek for being such an amazing realtor, for always being helpful and responsive through this whole process, and for the closing gifts, (especially the champagne 🍾 😉)

– DeTesha Drew , September 2018

I don’t even know where to begin...Brent is absolutely AMAZING at what he does. Sold my little old home built in 1892 in 1 month and then found my daughter and I our dream home before it even hit the market!! He is an excellent negotiator, is realistic and always speaks to you in a respectful manner, regardless if you are buying/selling a tiny little home, or something high dollar. The Votroubek group will sell or help you buy ANY size home and never make you feel like you’re less important based on the size of the home you’re buying or selling. While I won’t need to use Brent for quite some time, I will always recommend him to anyone in the market for a new home. Thank you Brent, from the bottom of my heart. � Erin and Ella

– Erin Young, August 2018

Brent Votroubek was a pleasure to work with during our buying and selling process. My wife and I have been looking for our dream lot to build on and Brent knew exactly where the new hot developments were that would fit our lifestyle and wants. He was there every step of the way in the build process from helping with our floor plan to helping answer any questions we had during the selection process when we met with vendors. Closing on our new home was a smooth process as well as Brent took care of everything. As I mentioned earlier we also had Brent list our old home to sell. Going into it we were stressed out about it knowing we had to sell before we closed on our new home. Well, Brent was at our house soon after we made the decision to sell, showing us comps of our home and in similar neighborhoods to let us know what we could realistically sell our home for. He explained everything so it made sense, and we trusted him when he suggested our sale price. Our home sold with just 1 day on the market and we got full asking price! I know this is probably rare but Brent's dedication and making us feel like his only client made it possible. Thank you again, Brent and the entire Votroubek Real Estate Group for your guidance, professionalism, and dedication in making our buying, selling, and move a smooth process. Highly reccomend!

– Dustin & Bridget Pierson , June 2018

Brent was a pleasure to work with during every step of the home buying process. He was attentive to our needs, worked hard to answer any questions we had, and truly made my husband and I feel like we had someone in our corner. We could not be happier!

– Josh & Lindsay Scheinblum, May 2018

We were very happy with Brent’s help during the home-buying process! He kept us informed the whole time and even made special trips out to the house with us to view it without a moments notice. Thank you for helping Kelly and I find our dream home!

– Dan & Kelly Hartnett, March 2018

When my wife and I saw our dream home pop up on the market, we contacted the listing agent right away. Luckily for us that listing agent was Brent Votroubek. He managed to represent both parties to the fullest with integrity. It was a seamless transaction and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks!

– James & Melissa Mitchell, December 2017

They have always been amazing at meeting my family's needs , when looking for a home or property! I am particular and that actually helped them find exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate their honesty and trustworthiness. My transition was smooth with their knowledge and skill and they have excellent follow up. I will definitely be using them again ! I trust the Votroubeks ! Thank You for All Your Hard Work!

– Aubrey Sadler, October 2017

Ariel and I started this whole home buying process by talking to my loan officer. He gave me a few different names for real estate agents and Brent was the one we took a shot on. Boy are we glad that we went with him! Ariel and I had been looking constantly online for the perfect house and Brent instantly started taking us to what we wanted to see or what he knew we would like to see. We were never pressured into anything that we didn't like and that was one of the things I was afraid of since this is our first home buying experience. Brent is 100% committed to helping you find the house that is perfect for you and if that means seeing a house every day or at an inconvenient time he will definitely work with your schedule. We are happy to have found our new home and we owe it to Brent! Keep up the good work and thank you again!!

– Jordan Little, June 2017

We have been working with Brent to find the "perfect' house for over a year now. We finally found one this spring and the process has just been so smooth! Everything was always taken care of and we valued his integrity and honesty. He gave good staging advice - even came over and helped us move a hutch! We went from no realtors ever to - call Brent!

– Sarah Palmersheim, May 2017

We were fortunate enough to have Brent as our realtor and he did a phenomenal job! He really listened to all of our cares, considerations and parameters and we found our FIRST home swiftly and smoothly thanks to his accommodations, honesty, knowledge, connections and organizational skills. Even though we were looking for a home outside of his general area (Tiffin, IA), he didn't hesitate to drive down to show us places, do walk-throughs, etc. even when it wasn't convenient for him. He made us feel valued and thoroughly answered all the questions/concerns we had along the way. He "fought" for us with the builders/developers on what was fair/details of the entire process beginning to end and I feel like his advocacy really helped us secure our home at a fair price. Brent enjoys what he does and his passion is evident. Thank you, Brent, for such a wonderful first-time home-buying experience! We are so lucky to have gotten to work with you and we absolutely LOVE our FIRST home as a family of three!

– Dan and Heidi Bohall, April 2017

Brent helped us to sell our house as we were relocating out of state. He made the process really smooth and free of worries. He was really dedicated and worked hard to make this possible. We would definitely recommend him.

– Yogi and Saylee Nimbalkar, April 2017

Brent was an amazing realtor and was able to find what we were looking for when buying a house and was able to help with decisions when we were building our new house as well. Would recommend him to anyone without hesitating.

– Keith and Samantha Eibey, March 2017

2 weeks listed with Brent, cash offer, sold and closed! Total time, 1 month. Sums it all up. Great experience. Thank you for the excellent communication. It made the long distance experience effortless.

– Brenda Hack, September 2016

My fiance and I recently relocated from Arizona to Cedar Rapids and we were fortunate to be referred to Brent Votroubek. He made our first home buying experience pleasant and informative. He was very knowledgeable, honest, and diligent throughout process. It didn't matter what time of day Brent would always get back to us immediately with whatever we needed, even providing video tours of properties while we were still out of state. I highly recommend Brent and the Votroubek Group to everyone looking to buy or sell a home. We could not be happier with ours!

– Andrew and Nichole Eastlick, August 2016

Huge shout out to Brent for making our selling/buying experience incredible! Brent spent the time doing his research and providing his expert advice to get our home listed. Not to mention, sold in two days! His constant communication and attention to detail did not go unnoticed! Brent was patient with us as we narrowed down our search and helped us open our minds to explore more. From reaching out to Brent letting him know we were thinking about listing to living in our awesome new home in just four short weeks, Brent took the stress away being there every step of the way! Thanks to Brent we are in the location we wanted and very excited to turn this beautiful house into our home. Thanks again Brent for your hard work and dedication! Top notch customer service!

– Lance & Kayla Waller, May 2016

Can't thank Brent enough for all the work he put into selling and find us a new home. He was patient as we were very indecisive on our location and what type of house we wanted! Brent is there through the entire process, even helping us with patio and landscaping decisions! He truly has made our transition easy, and thanks to him we are so excited to make this next house our home. Thanks again Brent for being awesome at what you do!!

– Leslie VanBogart, April 2016

Brent did an amazing job helping us find the right condo in the perfect area. We decided to build new and thanks to Brent the build process was perfect. He has a great sense of urgency and very high level of detail. Was always there providing support, ideas and solutions. Thanks so much, Brent.

– Gordy Vanderveer, April 2016

My fiance and I worked with this group for our 2nd home purchase and it only gets better!! Great experience and always there for me when needed. I appreciate all the support and guidance, making home buying fun and exciting through the entire process! Thank you Brent Votroubek and the The Votroubek Group for another great home buying experience!

– Curtis Meier, March 2016

Wow, where to even start. Not only was Wendy our realtor but ended up being our friend! She is AMAZING! She is very driven and goes beyond what we even expected through this experience. She still is there for questions when we have them. She doesn't just help you sell and then buy which we did and were terrified of doing. She made it so comforting and took the fear right out of us. She is always there when needed no matter the day or the time. I can't have imagined going though this process again looking back on last month without her being by our sides! #wendyisamazing

– Lisa Silver, March 2016

Brent did a phenomenal job in how he worked with us. When my wife and I were both in Arizona, he even did video walkthrough of a few houses for us. He took the time to get to know what was really important to us and what wasn't. Brent never grumbled if we had a question on the weekend or about something silly (as my family was moving from Arizona to Iowa in December). Top notch.

– Rich & Karrin Van Meter, December 2015

My husband and I are so fortunate to have had Brent as our realtor in the home buying/selling process. He really got to know what traits we were looking for in a home and he didn't stop searching until we found just the right one. He also helped us to sell our house and made the process very manageable. We are so grateful for his knowledgable advice, hard work, and friendly approach. Thanks, Brent and the Votroubek Group!

– Lance & Maggie Votroubek, October 2015

10 STARS! Brent was amazing to work with! He made things so much easier for us! Thank you for everything! We appreciate everything you did for us greatly! PS... the housewarming gift was a huge bonus! smile emoticon

– Dan and Kari Ness, August 2015

5 stars!!! Brent was the absolute best! He helped my fiancé and I through they entire process of buying our first home. He was patient and made it feel so simple. I'd give 6 stars if I could, and 2 thumbs up!

– Nick and Mandy Hawkins, August 2015

Amazing group!!! Great people & great realtors! Excellent advice to help you get your house on the market & will sell it faster then you could've imagined! If you want that "Sold" sign... Call Votroubek Real Estate team!!

– Lindsey Harford, July 2015

Brent is really helpful,understand budget, location , area demands very quickly and find the right place with very good price. My new condo purchase process was very smooth and very neat. Very professional and very matured person.Great person to work with and highly recommend his passion to help.

– Thippu Mekkeppanavara, July 2015

Well, that was fast! 5 days and it sold! Thanks to the best, most patient realtor ever, Brent Votroubek! I'm telling you, if you are in the market to buy or sell a home, call Brent!!

– Storm & Kathleen Ziegler, July 2015

We were very pleased to have worked with Brent Votroubek in selling our home. Brent was extremely thorough in explaining the listing process and we were very impressed by how keen he was to the fine details of our home. He was in constant communication with us and taught us how to get our home prepped and ready to sell. We attribute our home being sold within 7 days to Brent’s motivation and exceptional advertising in which he provided. Thank you again, Brent for going over and beyond all expectations!

– Kyle and Whitney Kuenstling, May 2015

Brent has been amazing. It's quite an intimidating process as a first time home buyer and Brent truly made this a great experience. He showed incredible patience, answering all of our questions at any time of day. He was very personable, caring, and efficient throughout this period. I would highly recommend him to anyone! We feel very fortunate and thankful to have had Brent as our realtor!

– Ashley Cain, May 2015

I would highly recommend Brent Votrobek when your buying and selling your home!! He is such a great agent and very professional! He had our house sold in only 23 days on the market!! Thank you so much Brent! You are the best!

– Jared and Heather Steihen, March 2015

Brent was awesome in helping us make the right decisions to sell our home quickly! Thanks Brent!

– Jen Walser, December 2014

Brent was GREAT to work with. First contacted him with interest in a property but unfortunately that property was already bought. Brent did some digging and ended up getting me an identical house in the same program. Was very helpful, always accessible, and always on top of everything. I literally didnt have to do a thing now am a homeowner! YAY BRENT!

– Kayla Phelan, November 2014

I met Brent while window shopping for homes in Lisbon. At the time, I was waiting for my divorce to be finalized and my ex-husband to refinance the home which he was living in out of my name. Without going into detail, things got very ugly and the courts has to get involved. Brent was absolutely amazing through the whole process!! He went to court with to testify to the lack of co-operation he had encountered, he met me at the home when I got possession of the property back he provided moral support as we soon realized that it had been destroyed so badly and investor wouldn't even touch it. Brent testified to the condition of the house in court for me. He got to be an unofficial counselor as I tried not to give up through the renovation process. The guy literally dealt with me at a time when I was half insane over the whole house and was not only a Realtor, but a friend. Brent was very much like my comrade in arms through the very long and painful process for me and he helped to get me through an very rough time in my life. If you need a Realtor that is going to be in your corner, and truly do everything they can to see you through then Brent is your guy! Today I am closing on a beautiful brand new home in Texas and I would not have been able to be here without all the help, moral support, dedication, hard work and determination he showed through the whole process. I will freely admit I wasn't always the ideal client, but if Brent can do what he did for me - imagine how amazing he is with a case that isn't a nightmare! I'd recommend him 100% to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you again Brent.

– Jamie Postel, October 2014

★★★★★ Brent helped my wife and I buy our first home and it was a great experience, have already recommended him to friends in the market!

– Peter Siniff, September 2014

The Votroubek Real Estate Group has a stellar reputation, and I am 100% satisfied with the service that Brent Votroubek provided for my wife and me. This is the first home I have ever sold, and Brent took the time to carefully and thoughtfully answer all of my questions. Communication is very important with real estate transactions, and Brent was always available to quickly respond to phone calls and e-mails. It was nice to have someone that could confidently guide me through this process. Big Thank You! to The Votroubek Real Estate Group, especially Brent Votroubek! I would (and already do) recommend The Votroubek Group to my Family and Friends.

– Andy & Kiley Chihak, August 2014

Brent did a great job helping us sell our house. He is very knowledgeable and was also very responsive to questions and concerns.

– Brandon & Angela Munson, July 2014

Thank you so much Brent for your hard work on helping me find my first home! I am completely happy with all of your services and would highly recommend you to anyone that is looking for a Relator in selling or buying a home. You were there from start to finish, and I couldn't have done this without you, you rock! Nicole Andrew Satisfied Customer

– Nicole Andrew, July 2014

★★★★★ We had a great experience working with Brent. He was very professional and knowledgeable during the whole process. We could not have done it without him. Highly recommended!

– Quinton & Ana , June 2014

Excellent Group of People to Work with!!!

– Charles Whittlesey, June 2014

You won't be disappointed with the Votroubek Group! Brent was especially professional, trustworthy, honest and knowledgeable. He was able to advise us on the market and the area. He and his family were always available to assist us with showing our home and helping us search for a new place that met our needs. When questions came up, he responded quickly and efficiently, always being transparent and authentic. Brent has strong communication skills, and he always kept us in the loop. Not only do you get Brent as a great realtor, but you also get the service and assistance of the entire group. They really do work as a team to help you through the buying/selling process. Brent is more than just a great realtor, he is a great guy overall. His good morals and genuine concern for his clients is admirable.

– Melissa & Jack Courtney, May 2014

I would highly recommend using Mark Votroubek as your realtor. He had an indepth knowledge of how to market our house to sell, getting potential buyers in to look and making the inspection and closing going smoothly. He and his team were always available for questions in a timely manner and directing us to make intelligent decisions.

– Client, May 2014

★★★★★ When we bought and sold our house, we had nothing but the best service from Brent! I would highly recommend him to anyone!!

– Casey DeBoer, May 2014

Brent is a terrific agent. He listened to what we needed and went above and beyond what was required of him. We were out of state home buyers and it took us almost 2 years to make a decision of where we wanted to live and what sort of home we wanted and Brent stuck with us through all of our indecision and faced the tough hurdles with us. He was always on our side and worked very hard for us. You won't be sorry you chose Brent as your agent!

– Lisa Parrish, April 2014

Did an awesome job helping me find the perfect home! Would definitely recommend Brent to anyone needing real estate services!

– Justin Enginzer, December 2013

Process was great from start to finish and ended up finding the perfect home for me. Responsive and knowledgeable through every aspect of the process!

– Kyle Forbes, November 2013

shari Helped me sell a home This group did a great job with advertising and having consistent open houses. If you want you want to get the word out that your house is for sale this is the group to go with. Thu, Sep 19, 2013

megan324 Helped me buy a home Brent helped us sell our first home and buy our second home. He was fantastic and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thu, Sep 12, 2013

– Megan, September 2013

Mark's expertise with the market made my home-buying experience smooth and painless. He was quick to communicate through the process and has also been helpful post-purchase. I look forward to working with Mark and the Votroubek team with my future real estate transactions!

– Victor Mujica, August 2013

Helped me buy a home Very professional, knowledgable and attentive service. Would highly recommend and will use them again in the future.

– Josh Boyle, July 2013

Wendy, Mark and their team were wonderful in helping me find my new home. The knowledge and expertise really put me at ease. I enjoyed sitting down and going over what I wanted in my new space and which items were important. Time is precious and I appreciate being shown only those homes that fit my criteria. Once I determined which home I was most interested in, Wendy took me back to the home for two more visits to make sure it was going to be the right fit for me and my family. She even helped me measure spaces to make sure furniture would fit! This is my 4th home purchase. The service I got from the Votroubek's that I appreciated most during this time is the personal touch they provided. The attention Wendy paid to my children was impressive! She really listened to my teenage daughter on what she was looking for in her new space. For my younger daughter she really helped make her feel included in the process as well-so much so that she says she wants to be like Wendy and have her name/face on a billboard! If in the future I every buy another home the only realtor team I will call is the Votroubek team!

– Client, July 2013

erin_nicole_5 Helped me buy a home I can not say enough good things about Votroubek Real Estate. They were beyond helpful and knowledgeable and helped me as a first time home buyer to break things down into terminology I would understand as to make the whole process smooth and not overwhelming at all. They were incredibly easy to get ahold of and promptly answered any questions I came up with no matter what time of day or night. My experience as a first time home buyer would not have been as good as it was without Brent's exceptional service.

– erin_nicole_5, July 2013

We sold in under 60 days. Wendy stayed right on top of all the details involved after the sale. She has numerous resources, a world of experience and the desire to do a great job. She made the process go as smoothly as it could have and we had fun doing it.

– ddunn2018, July 2013

Brent Votroubek helped us find our dream home! Brent was prompt in all communications, and responsive to our personal opinions throughout our whole home search. We would recommend him to any of our friends and will use him again in the future!!! Thanks, Brent!!

– Joseph Conway, June 2013

We had an excellent experience using Votroubek Real Estate Group. Brent was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. When we had questions, he had the answers and he was available any time we needed something. I’ll definitely use Votroubek again and would recommend them to anyone.

– Chris & Irene Siemens, April 2013

As a first time home buyer I was very pleased with Brent's ability to help me understand the market and find a house that was right for me and my budget. I always felt his advice was in my best interest and am very satisfied in the house I decided on. Brent's knowledge and expertise gave me the confidence I needed to make the decision when the right house came on the market. As a first time home buyer it also felt good to not only fuel business in the community, but within my generation as well. From searching for the right house for months to negotiating the fine print, I cant imagine going through the buying process without Brent's help.

– Joe Boenish, March 2013

Brent is absolutely amazing to work with. We worked with him 3 years ago when we bought our first home, and now that we have grown out of it, and are looking to build our dream home, there was no doubt in our mind that we were going to work with him again, even though we have a million friends who are realtors! :) What really stands out to me is that Brent is friendly and not intimidating as realtors sometimes can be, while still being professional and very knowledgable. He is constantly on top of things and always available to get us the answers we need or address any of our concerns. He makes our experience an incredibly easy one with no worries, I would recommend Brent to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thanks Brent!

– Lindsay Goedken, March 2013

Wendy made selling our house an effortless experience. She was always available for questions and confident we could get our house sold for the price we wanted. The entire process from putting it on the market to closing was so easy, which we appreciated immensely. Wendy is recommended to all our friends and family who are thinking of selling their homes. Thank you!

– Lauren Cronbaugh, March 2013

We thought Brent Votroubek has done a superior job in finding our new home. He was very efficient and listened to all of our needs and wants and helped us find the perfect home for us. He was very friendly, nice and a fun guy to deal with. He was very professional and had great knowledge of the real estate. he even handled a few things for us while we were at work and wasnt able to do so ourselves. We will definitely recommend Brent to all of our friends and family and if we ever need his services again we would definitely use him. We feel like we have made a new friend and will definitely be seeing him again.

– Danny & Karen Wintringer, December 2012

Brent was a gem, as was the entire Votroubek group. We were blessed to be able to have them help sell our existing home (which was on the market 4 days before the first offer came in) and they helped close on our new construction home. Brent was a strong advocate for us as we prepared and negotiated the final sales price on our home. During our building process, Brent was there every step of the way helping us navigate the sometimes overwhelming task of building. We could not have had an easier selling/building/buying process thanks to Brent and the Votrubek group. If we had to do it over again, we wouldn't change a thing. Kim & David (Seller & Buyer)

– David & Kim Malcolm, November 2012

Brent is a great resource when looking to buy or sell a home. With myself being young and inexperienced, I've reached out to him numerous times and he makes sure to answer all of my questions in a prompt manner. Brent makes everything easy to understand as well, making me feel comfortable in the whole process. I will be looking to buy a new home in the near future and have no doubt in my mind Brent will go above and beyond in finding me the perfect home that meets my checklist. Thanks, Brent Votroubek!

– Dustin Pierson, August 2012

Brent is a great agent. We had a very smooth transaction buying our home. Brent kept us up to date on everything that was going on and was able to answer any questions that we had. We would recommend Brent to anyone that's looking to buy a house.

– Cody & Thao, August 2012

Brent is in the process of currently helping me search for my first home and has done a remarkable job for me. He is very professional and has great personal skills that help him get to know the buyer and understand exactly what he or she is looking for in a house.

– Justin Waring, August 2012

Mark and Wendy Votroubek have helped us at least four times as we bought and sold homes, and we have always been extremely happy with their service. Their knowledge about the housing market is outstanding. They know what it takes to get your house sold and guide you on how to make your property shine so it sells as quickly as possible. In one instance, they sold our home in ONE day. We love how they are fast, straightforward, trustworthy, and very thorough in their work. We will definitely go back to them in the future!

I would highly recommend using Mark Votroubek as your realtor. He had an indepth knowledge of how to market our house to sell, getting potential buyers in to look and making the inspection and closing going smoothly. He and his team were always available for questions in a timely manner and directing us to make intelligent decisions.

Wendy and Mark Votroubek have helped me sell 2 homes and buy 3 homes. They are very knowledgeable about the Cedar Rapids area, and are well connected. As you go through the buy/sell process, they are able to provide an excellent level of knowledge and advice surrounding homes in general, whether it be about the quality of the construction, the finish work in a bathroom, or important items of note surrounding the neighborhood. I always received prompt responses to any questions I had, and they were able to answer any process question on the spot. I would recommend you take advantage of their years of knowlesge and excellent service on your next move.

Wendy, Mark and their team were wonderful in helping me find my new home. The knowledge and expertise really put me at ease. I enjoyed sitting down and going over what I wanted in my new space and which items were important. Time is precious and I appreciate being shown only those homes that fit my criteria. Once I determined which home I was most interested in, Wendy took me back to the home for two more visits to make sure it was going to be the right fit for me and my family. She even helped me measure spaces to make sure furniture would fit! This is my 4th home purchase. The service I got from the Votroubek's that I appreciated most during this time is the personal touch they provided. The attention Wendy paid to my children was impressive! She really listened to my teenage daughter on what she was looking for in her new space. For my younger daughter she really helped make her feel included in the process as well-so much so that she says she wants to be like Wendy and have her name/face on a billboard! If in the future I every buy another home the only realtor team I will call is the Votroubek team!

Mark did an excellent job throughout my home buying experience. He was present when I needed his help and made my closing day very easy. I will definitely work with the Votroubek Real Estate Group again!!

We have bought two homes through Mark. He is very willing to work with clients and very helpful in the buying and selling process. I would recommend Mark to anyone I know is looking to buy or sell.

I have known Brent for approximately 13 years. Brent has always been enthusiastic, hardworking, and people oriented. I am not at all surprised to see the success that he is creating for himself as a realtor. I am pleased to say that we not only have a good friendship, but now have a great professional relationship as well. As a first time home buyer, I expected the stress of the home buying experience to weigh heavily on me. However, it was quite the opposite. Brent took extra care to inform me and guide me through each step of the process. He was patient with my questions and his knowledge of the market was very evident in his answers. When I was faced with tough decisions, Brent offered invaluable advice and counsel. He was sensitive to my wants and needs. My experience with Brent certainly exceeded my expectations. Brent was diligent and assisted me throughout the entire home buying process. He provided me with reliable and trustworthy banking contacts and personal advice in the loan prequalification process. When searching for properties, Brent was easily accessible, flexible, and knowledgeable. Brent’s savvy and personable attributes made finding my perfect home trouble-free. In addition, making the offer and closing went smoothly with the help of Brent’s organizational skills and professionalism. I credit Brent with a smooth, stress-free home buying experience. I would certainly recommend Brent Votroubek for any task where enthusiasm, hard work and trustworthiness are valued. I look forward to working with him in the future when I am ready for a new property.

Brent, You always were in great contact with me, letting me know about new houses on the market. You knew exacty what type of home I was looking for and found it for me! It was great working with you and I will recommend you to all of my friends when they're ready to find a home. -Jackie Kimm

Being first time home buyers, and both 21, we had a million questions for Brent. he answered every one of them by having constant communication with us and going above and beyond to get the answers we wanted, even while he was on vacation and out of the country! There were many times he drove us to different towns to look for houses, and even viewed the houses before we did to make sure they were what we were looking for. I did not expect him to be so prepared and helpful but he really was. When it came to making an offer he was on the ball with comparison sheets so we could get the price we wanted. Now that it is all said and done, we couldn't have imagined working with anyone else! -Nathan Goedken and Lindsay Herbst

Morning, My wife and I are very interested in Brent representing us. We met him on Sunday and he is very pleasant and very eager to do his job. He impressed my wife and me, which is not an easy task. We will be hooking up with him this weekend to set up some things we need to do such as a market value on our current property, and looking at soem high end property you guys have on the market. Selling our current home is not contingent on our purchase of our next home, but we might be putting this current home on the market soon. Sincerely, Jueseppi & Lori

"Wendy and Mark have helped us sell two houses, buy one house, and build one house! We are repeat customers because we love their attention to detail and level of professionalism. They always do their homework and have helped us get the maximum value out of our properties. They also have a keen sense of what is happening in the market right now, and what they anticipate will happen in the future. On top of all of this, they're wonderful people to work with simply because they're responsive, caring, and friendly."
