Calming Experience


 Ken Waterbeck helped me through the process of buying my first home.  Ken showed me multiple houses and I could tell that his top priority was that I would find a home that would fit my needs.  As a first time homebuyer I was a bit overwhelmed at the whole process... Ken and his team were there to answer all of my questions and make the expereince as enjoyable as possible.  I am happy with my home that purchased and I would recommend Waterbeck Real Estate to anyone who is going through the home buying process.  Ken and his team were very knowledgable, kind, helpful, and professional.  I will be using Waterbeck Real Estate for all my future real estate endeavors.   ~Lisbon Resident 

Diligent and No Stress


 Waterbeck listed my home and within a few days I had more than one offer on my home - Summer educated me on the process before I listed and was with me through the closing!  More than that, she helped me find my new home and a week after closing she visited me and my wife at our home to check in on us.  How many REALTORS actually come to visit after a sale?  This is a first!  ~Robins Resident 

Attentive and Quick


  I sent an email to the Waterbeck team about a listing I wanted to see and they called me within a few minutes!  Can I add that I found my new home!  ~Cedar Rapids Resident

" I would take Summer Leffler over any other realtor in the world.  I was looking for over 4 years and I have some kinda goofy luck.  And Summer found and got me my house in the 1st day I worked with her..  And she stands by your side through every thing...    If you need a realtor she is the one to get...  Hands down and I have worked with the big one,  She beats them all..
