What People are Saying...

So here’s the deal… Kelsey apparently is one of those weird real estate agents that actually likes to work with the buyers on a transaction, and I think this is very telling… It means she is really in the business of helping people not only have the life and home they always wanted, but she is willing to be their biggest champion! She gets bonus points for being committed to the growth of the Des Moines community, especially the female entrepreneur branch! So what I’m saying is… if you are a lady boss you need this lady boss! – Annie Woods


Kelsey is very passionate about what she does and goes above and beyond for her clients. She does a wonderful job listening to her clients, and finding the perfect home! Anyone looking to purchase a home should work with Kelsey! – Becca Lake


Kelsey is an unreal, invaluable realtor! She is dedicated to her clients and works hard towards their goals! I highly recommend her! – Michelle Swanson


I love how Kelsey cares so much about her clients and how she can help them. She is always taking classes and reaching out within the community to learn more ways to better serve families. It’s not just about selling you a home. It’s about finding the perfect place that fits your families needs physically and financially. – Erin Huiatt


What a pleasure to work with someone so enthusiastic and helpful. We had Kelsey get us our condo on Grand Ave that fits us perfectly now that we are downsized. She also took care of listing our home that was too big for us and now less than 3 months have gone by and we are all closed on the sale of it. Highly recommend using Kelsey as she was great to work with!!! – Julie Lafrentz


Buying your first house is probably one of the top ten scariest things adults do so you can imagine what a wreck I was at the beginning. But now I’m sitting in my very first house and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Kelsey. She knew exactly what I needed, even when I didn’t. She was willing to brave terrifying basements just because I wanted to check out a fixer-upper. And she was so nice the whole time. Kelsey is absolutely awesome and anyone would be lucky to have her by their side on a house hunt. – Megan McGuire


I haven’t bought a house yet..but she has answered all my questions about the processes of buying a house and what to do and not to do…She is AWESOME – Joe Carter


We have worked with other real estate agents in the past. Kelsey is by far and away the best ever, she answered all questions and went way out of her way to help us in any way she could. Kelsey is indeed a very excellent real estate agent. – Dwane + Martha Wasmund


We were looking for our first home and while it was a stressful process, Kelsey helped us all the way through it until the end! We have lived in our home for about four months now in the Merle Hay neighborhood and we are so happy with our choice! – Kacy Murray


If you’re looking for an honest, caring and hardworking realtor Kelsey Russell is your gal! She is very professional, intentional and willing to go the extra mile for you. One of the best realtors out there. Give her a call! – Luis Ubinas


Kelsey goes above and beyond for her clients, and her great communication and constant contact with everyone involved in the transaction ensures a smooth process and closing on time. Any buyer would be lucky to have Kelsey in their corner!! – Julie Milder


Kelsey did such a great job helping us find the perfect house for our growing family! She is very knowledgeable and goes above and beyond with her customer service!!! She helped us buy and sell with great experiences on both ends. Highly recommend! – Lindsay Russell


Kelsey was great to work with in helping us purchase our home. She was by far the most prepared and organized agent that showed us houses. She is extremely organized and knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions we had. She was also very flexible in working with our schedules to show us houses. I would highly recommend her as she made the process so easy! – Amanda Day


If you’re looking for an agent to go above and beyond Kelsey Russell should be the agent for you! – Travis Evans


Kelsey does a great job answering questions and I would highly recommend her. Whether you’re a first time home buyer, an investor or something in between, she’ll get you squared away! – Dan Morgan


Kelsey was incredibly attentive and helpful while listing my home. Because of her knowledge and hard work I received a great offer and sold my home! – Lindsey Voss


Thanks again for making our home buying experience easier for us. We appreciate your time and efforts. Highly recommend! – Yeng Thao


Kelsey was phenomenal on all levels as she helped us buy our first house. She knew the right neighborhoods to look at in our area where our house would have the best resale value, walked us through the whole process before even starting so we weren’t surprised by the next steps, and always put us first. I’ve never met a more thorough or hardworking professional.

I’d recommend Kelsey to anyone looking to buy a house, especially new home buyers. I’ll definitely be returning to her when it comes time for me to move in the future. – Matthew + Lindsay Kilworth


I just purchased my second property with Kelsey (commercial and residential)! Not only does she know what she’s talking about, but she is also highly organized and my best interests were paramount. There is no pressure to buy a property that isn’t ideal for you. Kelsey also did more research into potential issues with properties we had questions about, for example why the property is being sold, what issues have come up in the past, etc. she’s awesome and also has great contacts with mortgage lenders, inspection services, and other home services. I love the mortgage lender that Kelsey introduced me to- who can say that?!

If you need a real estate agent in the area, Kelsey should be your first call or email!

Kelsey was a great asset to us in our first-time home-buying experience last Spring. It was during the hottest time of the year when houses were flying off the market before you could even get in to see them and we REALLY valued Kelsey’s availability to meet and know her stuff before even walking into the house. She could talk us through the pros and cons and had details and answers to our questions either on the spot or she got back to us right away. We ended up finding our perfect home in the Sherman Hill neighborhood! Handling the processing and paperwork with Kelsey was painless. She kept us updated on the inspections and continued to check in after closing day. I still see her social media updates and she works so hard to truly educate the public and I know she would do a great job for anyone who chooses to work with her. – Kelsey Schwager
