5-30-16  Dave and Barb:  Thank you for all your hard work on selling a certain property!  I know this was a complicated sale for which you received very little compensation.  Country Realty did a fantastic service for the Community.  Your efforts are very much appreciated!



Dave & Barb

You both do such a great job and are very personable and very easy to work with.  I liked that you were never pushy, but always helpful.  Thanks again!  Judy

Judy Robinson

Thank you so very much for  all the kindness.  We had an absolutely positive experience selling the house and purchasing the Condo.  Thank you so much for guiding us along the way.

Neil & Stacy Andersen

Hi, Dave! Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you on the purchase of our Lake Home! I am so excited to start moving in tomorrow...although I wish I didn't have to do it in this weather :(! You were so helpful and professional, not pushy :), and were always able to answer questions and go to the house with us when we needed to. Hope to see you around. Thanks again!

I feel as though I should take both of you out for dinner, as I appreciated your patience and explaining everything to me…….more than once.  Certainly not my area of expertise!  I was very pleased with everything you did to complete the sale of my home and the ease of it for me, and how both of you took care of the entire process.  Thank U So Much.  God’s Blessing always to U both!  Dino R.

Dave and Barb, just wanted to again thank you for everything.  You gave me good advice when I needed it.  You knew what would work and I feel I made the right decisions based on that.  It was a relief to get everything settled.  Thank you    You Guys are the BEST!!! Patty

Thank you for the extra steps taken to bring our transaction to fruition.  I appreciate all the extra follow-up and " meeting us more than half way" when it came to the paperwork.  And for your Clients to know, it was coming to Kansas City.  Should I ever hear of anyone interested in Lake Panorama property, I will surely pass along your name.  I want you to know your efforts were appreciated.  I enjoyed working with you and think it's amazing that Iowans (a native) have so much in common.  Good Luck.

Dave, we really appreciate you helping us find our new Home.  We absolutely love it and ready for a nice summer.  Thanks again for your work in viewing other homes too.  Take care of yourself.

Dave & Jean Ann

 We wanted to say how much we appreciated all of your assistance in selling our property. What a journey! You made what can be a complicated process as painless as possible. A BIG Thank You!    8/2014

Michelle and Dave Bassett

Dave I want to thank you for all your help and pricing my home where needed to be priced and not overpricing like the previous agent had done.  It's  great to work with an agent that wanted to help sell my house just not for the commisson.


Dave thank you for getting our home sold.  Dave's so professional and knowledgeable.  All questions, phone calls, and e-mails are always answered, even on the day that should be his day off.  You are informed on every showing and all through the closing.  Dave gets things done.  Dave and Barb are a great team!  Thank you, Ken and Judy Parsons.

Ken and Judy Parsons

    We had our home on the market for over 3 years and had tried 3 other Agencies, but settled on Dave at Country Realty since he also was our former Banker.   Dave was able to explain how the locally market has changed even though not like it has nationally and gave us a new range of where our home would sell.  Throughout the years, Dave has been a professional and gladly has provided his assistance to us.   Dave was able to assist us in purchasing a new home in Ankeny.  We were greatly impressed in the extras that Dave provided to complete the Closings on both homes.   You will never go wrong with Dave.

Dave and Barb:

We can't begin to tell you how very much we have appreciated all of your help,  both when we bought the home in 2012 and throughout the process of the selling the home.  It has been such a pleasure working with you and getting to know the two of you.  Thank you so much for the lovely gift.  It will always be a precious reminder of the two of you.  Agan, many, many Thanks!

We called Dave and let him know that we would be listing our Condo in the next month or two but if he had anyone that might be interested he could show it sooner.  Within  a week he had shown it twice and it was sold within 10 days.  WOW  what a great real estate agent!!   The service he provided was also exceptional and made the closing a breeze. We will definitely use Dave for any future real estate needs.  May 2015


Mike and Lisa Tracy

Dave, just wanted to say thanks for all the your help in getting the Acreage.  I really appreciate it, and feel we will be very happy in the Panora/Yale area.  Now you won't have to go all over Central Iowa showing us Acreages.   But I will bet someone will take our place and you will do it again, but understand the nature of your business.  See you around.

Jeff S. McDivitt, Jr

Dave & Barb,  We want to thank you for your help and service when buying the Townhome.  You made it a pleasant experience. We really enjoy it here. Thanks again for all of your help.

Judy Erickson & Karl Eby

7/15/15 Dave helped my wife and I purchase a B lot on Lake Panorama from a neighbor here in the Des Moines area. He was very knowledgeable about the lake and what all the lot had to offer. Dave has been around the Panorama area for years and I was eager to hear how everything came to be and what all Panorama has to offer being so close to Des Moines.


Dave stayed with us until the right buyer came along.  Then as we approached the closing, issues came up and one by one Dave offered calm and reasonable solutions.  I can recommend Country Reality for your real estate needs, either buying or selling, THEY EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS! 5-15-2014

I can't thank you and Barb enough for your professional service in selling my Home.  You kept me informed from start to finish.  I wasn't aware of all the steps of the sale that you handled so well.   Highly recommend that others should use you if it has anything to do with Listing or Selling Real Estate.  All is appreciated.  Novi.

Novi Martin

Dave , Thanks for all you did selling my home.  You kept me updated, and it was a pleasure working with you.  You did such a great job I will recommend you for listing or buying a home at the Lake.

J & P C.

Thanks just doesn't seem like enough.  It seems so little to say "thank you" for all you both did last year to help our family.  It was a difficult year.  You were given every reason to no.  Instead. you had the heart and compassion and said Yes.  We were told at the beginning, they don't get any better than Dave and Barb Ryan.  That was a very correct recommendation.  We are forever grateful.
