What Some of My Clients Are Saying...

Liz and Bob were absolutely the best team we have ever had for the sale of a home. Their in-depth review of the local market provided clear perspective and accurate guidance on what to expect. Additionally, their honest feedback and advice towards the preparation of our home for the market were the absolute catalyst for how quickly we received an offer on our home. Other agents and agencies need to take note. We felt like we were part of the team, not "another client." Liz and Bob's personalized touch is worth emulating! I HIGHLY recommend Liz and Bob when you are ready to buy or sell your home. If and when the day comes we decide to sell our new home, we'll definitely choose them again!   ❖ Kris Killius Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Liz's responsiveness and support made our out of state move go smooth and helped us secure a quick sale. I would highly recommend Liz and team if you are looking to sell your home.   ❖ Eric Wiebers Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Liz is friendly, helpful, prompt and responsive, and made us feel like her most important customers. She is transparent in the house-buying process which is especially helpful for 1st or 2nd-time buyers! She also worked with our tight timeline and worked hard to get us viewings in a short period of time. Loved working with Liz and Bob!   ❖ Claire Shapleigh Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Our family is thankful to have worked with Liz! Her hard work and attention to detail were instrumental into getting us into our home that fits our lifestyle. The whole process from offer to closing was so smooth. Liz was professional, hardworking, and kind. She took the time to understand our needs and kept us informed as time passed. We highly recommend Liz if you are looking to buy or sell a home!   ❖ Brent Pritchard Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

I was a potential first-time home buyer who had done plenty of online research but never initiated the home buying process. I met Liz at an open house, and she clearly explained to me at the beginning of my search how the purchasing and financing aspects of the home sale would proceed and helped guide me through each step of the home purchase process. Liz was open to suggestions, promptly made contacts with other realtors and home owners, and was honest about benefits and drawbacks of each property we visited. We looked at at least 5 properties before we found the one I bought 4 months after our first meeting. I'm grateful for her persistence in continuing to research and suggest properties to me when I began to feel like I wouldn't be able to find anything suitable. I would highly recommend Liz to any first-time or repeat home buyer for her excellent knowledge of market trends and available resources in Johnson County Iowa.   ❖ Paula Miller Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Our family is thankful to have worked with Liz! Her hard work and attention to detail were instrumental into getting us into our home that fits our lifestyle. The whole process from offer to closing was so smooth. Liz was professional, hardworking, and kind. She took the time to understand our needs and kept us informed as time passed. We highly recommend Liz if you are looking to buy or sell a home!   ❖ Brent Pritchard Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Liz did a GREAT job partnering with us to sell our house! She is professional, offers a balanced perspective, has great insight and really worked WITH us!   ❖ Bryan Stolz Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

We were extremely happy working with Liz! She is friendly yet professional and responded to all of our questions quickly. We put our trust in her guidance and she helped us find a home that we love!   ❖ Jeff Field Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Liz helped me buy a home very efficiently. From the beginning, she was easy to reach by phone/text or email at seemingly any hour. She sent me new listings within my price range in a timely manner. When viewing properties, Liz was very knowledgeable and pointed out specific features (eg the quality of the roof tiling or water heater) that I would not have otherwise known about. She was thorough and was able to answer specific questions I had, such as crime rate in the area of the property. Liz guided me through the offer and closing process smoothly and was very attentive to all details. Overall, I was very impressed with Liz and would highly recommend her as an agent.   ❖ tg199 Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Liz helped me to sell my mother's house. Mom had moved closer to me, out of state and needed to have her house sold while we were no longer in Iowa City. Liz handled everything for us. She lined up a great inspector and helped with getting a contractor to make a minor roof repair. We had several interested buyers from word of mouth and Liz showed them the home. We actually didn't have to list as we had offers already. She worked with me and my attorney to verify correctness of all documents. We worked together to get the abstract safely to the title company. She corresponded with me regarding the final closing documents and represented me at closing so I didn't have to take another flight to Iowa. She is sharp, pleasant and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her services.   ❖ J6789 Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Liz did an amazing job as our realtor. We really enjoyed working with her. She helped us find a home quickly that fits our family great with short notice during the very busy time of December. She was available whenever fit our schedule best and whenever we had any questions. She was insightful and very detail oriented when looking at homes. But also was very good and giving us our space to make decisions and supporting what we were looking for in a home.   ❖ Mandtofam Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Liz was such a breath of fresh air to work with! She was completely honest about all of the places we visited. If there was a potential issue, she was the first to point it out. If she didn't think it was really what I was looking for, she would say so. Liz was completely respectful of my budget and always kept what I wanted in mind. She was so kind and was not pushy whatsoever. She was available whenever I had a question, day or night. If and when I need a new place to live in the Iowa City area, she will be the first person that I call.   ❖ Kara Diemer Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Liz was the utmost professional. I was moving from Clinton to Iowa City. When a house came on the market and I had an interest, she was there with key in hand to show it whatever the time or day. She showed a property to me at 8:00 pm because it was convenient for my arrival time in Iowa City. She took care of everything. The purchase went so smoothly. No complications. It was a great experience working with her and I am hoping she will become a trusted friend. You cannot go wrong with Liz Firmstone as your realtor. She takes some of the stress out of buying a new home.   ❖ Ruth Caven Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Great realtor to work with. Liz is always quick to respond to our questions and concerns. We highly recommend Liz Erb Firmstone.   ❖ J Lo Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Liz was very responsive to our requests and did an excellent job with all details.   ❖ Tanya Kooi Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone Google My Business Review

Liz was responsive, thorough, and thoughtful throughout our whole home selling process. Her market knowledge was great and I'd highly recommend her for buying or selling a home.   ❖ Jared Lerdal Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Liz didn't waste any time. We started looking at houses on the very first day. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate market. She never pressured us into something we didn't want. When we found the house we wanted, she perfectly guided us through the process. She gave us great advice. She basically did everything for us. We couldn't be happier!   ❖ Anna Grulke Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Liz is absolutely fabulous! She is a professional, kind, patient and attentive advisor working with two generations of one family. She is very knowledgeable about this market and a confident negotiator. She is an amazing realtor! We are so happy that she helped us sell our family home.   ❖ JS Gottlieb Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

I wish I could give 6 stars. This was my first home to buy. Liz helped me determine what exactly I wanted in a home and then found the perfect property for me in less than 2 weeks. I had to leave for Europe just after finding it and Liz made it possible for me to sign any necessary documents while I was away. Everything was done well before the deadlines. She helped me understand every step of the process. Her recommendations for inspectors, banks, etc. turned out to be the best available. Her advice was always spot on. After my return to the US the closing went without any problems. During all that Liz Firmstone was a joy to work with. I highly recommend her to my friends.   ❖ Karin Gundlach Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Liz was great to work with - her knowledge and calm energy made things go so smoothly! She was responsive to all of my requests and gave me truly personalized suggestions and critiques throughout. As a first time buyer, I was nervous about the process, but Liz gave great guidance while also being super patient. I would highly recommend Liz as an agent, especially if you're a first time buyer.   ❖ susemck Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Selling a house can be stressful, and like most of us, I was too busy to make selling the house the focus of my attention. Liz understands this; her honest, straight foreword manner reduces the stress. And there were no games or guesswork, Liz provides guidance throughout the process and explains all the options. Liz made it easy for to make informed decisions every step of the way. She is also incredibly efficient - she came to us when we could meet, repetitive conversations were not necessary - she got it done the first time, and is extremely organized (even notarized our signatures right at our house.) Liz is my realtor - she earned it!   ❖ zuser20160321123806662 Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

What a kind and wonderful person, in addition to being a top-notch agent. Given a short window to find the perfect home, Liz came armed with a dozen listings, each suitable and within our price range. From that first weekend through closing and beyond, Liz has been a tremendous agent.   ❖ jayschool2013 Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Liz Firmstone was more like a friend then realtor in the home buying process. She did not waste our time on places she knew we would not like and spent alot of time showing us properties and helping us get a good grasp of the market. Never felt rushed or hurried w/her and when we did find a place, she negotiated everything perfectly. I would highly recommend Liz!!!   ❖ mstar2410 Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

Liz was very prompt in research and very helpful with advice when I bought my condo. I feel so fortunate to have met with her! I required a single floor unit and elevator (hard to find) and she located one!  
❖ mjgb6 Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

"Liz was absolutely fantastic; I could not have imagined working with anyone else. By working to get to know me and what appealed to me in a home she guided me to finding a great condo which continues to wow my family. When it was time to make our move she was incredibly responsive and professional, while doing a great job of being a reassuring advocate. She was also very responsive and accessible to any questions I might have."   ❖ IowaStar Iowa City Realtor Liz Firmstone

She is thorough in her work and sees things through to the end. I feel confident in Liz to make a home buying or selling transaction go smoothly and error free. Liz is totally awesome and you will never have a better real estate agent in your life! "   ❖ Riley F
