My family first moved to the Des Moines area in 1967. My two brothers and I were raised in the Western-most section of the city in an area bounded by West Des Moines, Des Moines, and Windsor Heights known as Janets Woods. I have been many places since, but am still proud to call Des Moines home.
After graduating from the University of Iowa with a BA in Communications, I spent nearly six years abroad. I now have a family of my own in Des Moines with my wife Jeanette, sons Esden and Nolden and daughter Lena. I am fortunate that my parents are still living in the city, as well as many people I have known or met through the years.
It's exciting to see all the changes happening with new businesses coming in, the downtown area being developed, new malls and stores cropping up all over, new roads and trails being built, and the steady development of all the satellite communities.
Pay us a visit and see why we are so upbeat about life here with our diverse economy and steady housing market. If you need any assistance with your relocation or real estate decisions in Polk, Dallas, Madison, Jasper or Warren County, please call or e-mail, Matt Grohe (515) 271-8999.

Buyer and Seller Testimonials
Don and his wife found me on the internet. They had a second home to sell:
"We called Matt when we wanted to sell our home because he seemed like an agent who would work hard to get the job done. We wanted to sell before the winter and as soon as possible because we had another house. Matt got the home sold fairly quickly and without any hassles."
I sold Louise's neighbors home and they referred me to her. She'd lived in the same home for 57 years:
"Matt got my home sold quickly and for a price that was acceptable to me. I wanted to get moved before the snow flew and Matt made it happen."
Michael had called 3 other agents. I responded the fastest and had the best program:
"Matt really went above and beyond the call in getting our town home sold and closed. We would recommend Matt without hesistation to anyone who needs and accesible and reliable agent to sell their home."
Mark had seen other homes I had listed and sold and decided to give me a call:

Goron used my services to sell his home and continued working with me to find and purchase a new home:
"I was able to locate a good home in the area I wanted at a price I could afford. Matt was also able to help me receive $13,000 in grants and credits (not tax credits) that I could use to improve my new home. The closing process was a little bit complicated but we were able to close on time and to my satisfaction. Since Matt has helped me both buy and sell a home I can tell you honestly that he does a great job at both."
Sonya and Hector called me after seeing me on Mediacom Channel 4:
"Matt didn't push us to make decisions but instead helped us to weigh our alternatives carefully before making the best choice.

Matt made buying our first home easy."
