Phoebe continues to love working with youth, and it is very important to her that she give back to the community which so generously supports both her businesses.  She sits on the Board of Trustees for Willowwind School, the Board of Directors for United Action for Youth, including The Festival of Flowers Committee and their Community Youth Leadership Program.  Phoebe started a networking group for local women business owners.  She serves on the United Way Summership Program’s Power of the Purse fundraising committee.  She also is a commissioner on the Planning and Zoning Commission of Iowa City and the Board of Review for the Iowa City Assessors.

“Phoebe is active in our community and a well respected individual in local realty and residential construction. Partnering with Phoebe in any professional endeavor is sure to be one of the best decisions you will make.”

– Rob Roggeveen , January 2014

Phoebe was our realtor when we bought our first home. She is passionate and dedicated with deep expertise. As a first time buyer what I most appreciated was her expertise in renovation to guide the buying process. She helped us see each home as it is, but also see what it might be. As we viewed properties, she could help us view things of concern. She could guide us when we had ideas for tweaking the house to have a sense of what might be affordable renovations and which ones were cost prohibitive dreams for the far future. That allowed us to make the best choice for a house that we could be pleased with in the short term so that we could save and target reasonable tweaks to fix known problems and get it closer to our ideal.

Phoebe helped us to find our first house. She did a great job at listening what we wanted and to find the best match for our family. She is very knowledgeable about every single aspect of buying a house and give us great advice in every step of the process. Buying your first house can be a stressful and scary situation but Phoebe made this process enjoyable and easy for us. I will definitely recommend her to anybody who is looking to buy or sell in this area and we would love to work again with her in the future.

– Marta Hamity , January 2017

Phoebe provided wonderful service as I bought my new home, and then prepped and sold my previous one. I've since recommended her to friends, and have sought her advice a few times on questions around the housing market (residential and rental). A great resource, and all around good person!

– Carl R. Brown , January 2017

Phoebe was our realtor when we moved to Iowa City roughly 2 years ago. She did a great job and found us a wonderful house. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor in Iowa City.

– Eric Higgins-Freese , January 2017

Phoebe is an absolutely amazing realtor. She came to me highly recommended, and within a week of meeting her, I had an accepted offer on a home that was exactly what I wanted. She has a great deal of industry knowledge, follow-through and grit that made me feel supported and confident as a first time home-buyer. Phoebe goes above and beyond what is expected, and goes the extra mile to personalize and make the process fun. You can trust Phoebe to represent and guide you through the home buying and selling process. I can't recommend her enough to friends and family.

– Megan Mathews , January 2017

A year ago, my husband and I wanted to begin looking for our first home. We were experts in renting places, but knew absolutely nothing about buying a home. That is, until I met Phoebe. I couldn't have asked for a more professional, charismatic, or respectful real estate agent. Not only did she help us find the perfect home on our budget, but she ensured we were educated on those important questions I would've never thought to ask. Phoebe truly takes the stress out of buying a home.

– Brenna Kingyon , January 2017

Phoebe was a joy to work with and extremely knowledgeable about the Iowa City area, I recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

– James Gambrell , January 2017

I have used and referred Phoebe for several real estate transactions. I have found that she is not only incredibly amazing to work with, she helps you think outside of the box to find the perfect home.

– Neva Evans , January 2017

I've known Phoebe for many years as a long time friend of our family, and can say among her many qualities, she has the ability to connect with and understand a person almost instantaneously. She is as pure and genuine as sunlight. This makes her a truly trusted partner in any decision-making process. Many people can fake enthusiasm, passion and sincerity, but Phoebe is the real deal.

– Dave Klockau , January 2017

Phoebe is an energetic, creative, and motivated realtor. She thoroughly understands the business and the market, and is thoughtful and considerate to her clients' needs, whether they are buying or selling. She has a knack for marketing, and is a strong advocate for her clients in negotiations. I highly recommend her, and will definitely call her again the next time we have buying or selling needs!

– Jen Knights , February 2017

As first-time homeowners, we did not know what to expect -- Phoebe made the process informative, fun, and helped us find the perfect home!
