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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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)

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!

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.

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!!

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.
July 23, 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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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

"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."
