First of all Phil and I want to thank you Brian, for the great job you did in assisting us in buying and selling our homes in a matter of just a few months. We also want to thank you for your kindness and patience through it all. We feel blessed to have found you as a realtor at this time in our life and consider you our friend. Thank you again for a job well done! Let me just say to any prospective buyer or seller of their home that if you are searching for a realtor in the Cedar Rapids and surrounding area we would highly recommend Brian Hoel, with Skogman Realty. We have had realtors over the years and he is at the top of our list. First and foremost he will listen to what you say and try the very best he can to deliver. We started our search in the fall on our own but soon realized we needed help. We came upon Brian quite by accident at an open house and he so impressed us with his willingness to dig right in and help that we began working with him. We explained that we were at a time in our life that we wanted to downsize and he showed us many, many houses and they were just what we had asked for but we could always find something wrong. Soon we wondered if we were really ready to downsize and told Brian that we were going to regroup and start over in the spring. He thanked us for being honest and was very encouraging that we should not get down, he was sure we could find the home of our dreams. In the meantime he kept in touch. Then after talking our situation out we were out driving around one Sunday afternoon and saw the house we had been looking for. We finally realized that if we were truly going to downsize we would have to compromise some things. We called Brian and set up a showing and I think after walking through the house we all knew this was the one but we still wanted to go home and think on it. We called him back that evening and he, without being pushy, helped us to see what we needed to do. Well the rest is history! They accepted our offer and because it was October we were sure our house wouldn’t sell but we feel because of Brian’s great marketing experience and skills our home was officially on the market for only a few days before we had two offers. That is also history! Within a few months Brian helped us find our dream home and sell our existing home. Brian was always there with his encouragement and would help in any way he could. So once again, if you are looking for a great Realtor in the Cedar Rapids or surrounding area who will listen to what you want and really work hard for you and get you results, call Brian Hoel!

Recently new to the Cedar Rapids area from Milwaukee, we were looking to buy our first home. We met Brian at an open house and right away felt very comfortable talking with him about our housing needs. His down to earth, friendly nature made it easy for us to decide to work with him. We also liked the fact that he was part of Skogman Realty, which has a great reputation in the Cedar Rapids area. During the entire house hunting process, Brian was excellent to work with. He is professional, responsive, knowledgeable and really paid attention to our needs. We would highly recommend Brian Hoel to anyone looking to sell or buy a house! Thanks again!!

Our first home buying experience was full of ups and downs. Brian was always available with good advice every step of the way. My wife and I are glad we had him on our side. Brian is easy to work with, and helped find a home that met our needs. We will work with Brian in the future and suggest him to anyone needing a realtor!

Brian picked us up at an open house, without even knowing it :) We were already working with another realtor, when we met Brian at an open house. We loved his charm and willingness to just let us "Look" without trying to sell us the world. When we became unhappy with the relator we were working with we thought we were going to have to start the whole process over of searching for a new realtor. Then we remembered meeting Brian at a past open house, we called him instantly. BEST DECISION EVER. Brian, you made the hardest part of moving, easy. You became a friend before we even met you in person. Your confidence, your knowledge, your efficiency, and willingness to go to bat for us, really helped us make a smooth transition to Iowa. THANK YOU for all you did for us! We could not be happier in our new home. We HIGHLY recommend working with Brian for all your real estate needs!

Brian Hoel recently sold our house in Robins, Iowa. He did a tremendous job in getting things moving quickly in order to get our house sold before the winter season. We had the house on the market for several months through another realty company with few showings and really no movement. Brian met with us to determine a reasonable price based on the market in our area and we immediately began seeing showings leading up to the offer being made and ultimately accepted. In summary we were very pleased with Brian and his dedication in getting our home sold in a timely manner so we could move on to the next step in our lives. Thank you!

Brian is great! He helped us smoothly transition from being renters to homeowners. He helped us calmly stay ahead of the process by being fully prepared and kept us well informed along the way. He is a great listener, very knowledgeable and provided great advice; there were no surprises! Our meetings were easy and convenient. Brian streamlined the process for us and we could not be happier! He did a wonderful job! Thank you Brian! Thank you for all your help! You did a wonderful job!

As a first time homebuyer I'm grateful we found Brian Hoel. The purchasing transaction felt like a roller coaster at times with plenty of ups and downs. However, Brian was there for us every step of the way and at any hour of the day or night. Brian worked so hard to help us make our dream of owning this particular home a reality! I know it was close to midnight before he left his office on the evening we submitted our offer because he was working out all the details. We trusted Brian and I truly believe if it were not for him and all of his hard work we would have missed out on this amazing place we love to call HOME! Thank you Brian!

Before we started to seriously house hunt we knew we first wanted to find a realtor that would guide us through the process. We had discussed everything we wanted in a realtor: someone who showed a genuine interest in getting to know us, someone who seemed knowledgeable but not too pushy, someone who would listen and also advise, someone who could give us a plan of attack and most importantly someone we could trust throughout the entire process. Brian Hoel had all of these qualities and more. The entire process went so smoothly and Brian exceeded every expectation we had. He always listened and never wanted us to feel rushed or pressured. He also wasn’t afraid to make suggestions and we knew we could always be honest with Brian. He set up numerous showings and kept us updated on a regular basis. We were truly fortunate to have met Brian. He wasn’t only our Realtor but he became a friend. We could not have asked for a better realtor to make our first home buying experience so rewarding.
