There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.

I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.

  • We had a wonderful experience using Verne to sell our home. We had tried another realtor and Verne went above and beyond to get our house sold. He and his team were attentive to detail, 100% professional, and committed to excellent service. Going through the process was easy with Verne, who provided additional resources and recommendations when they were most needed. He is generous with his time and listens to what is most important to his client. I would use Verne again in a heartbeat.

  • Verne made selling my friend's home so easy, even in the midst of the pandemic. He is a true professional and his knowledge of the market was a monumental asset. His assistance contacting and hiring individuals to perform all work needed in the property is so greatly appreciated. His advice and support will never be forgotten. I will be hiring him to sell my property when the time comes. Thank you Verne! Tita

  • Verne is a wonderful agent. He is on top of everything and will communicate as things come through. He called or emailed me as things came up. I previously used him to buy the place I just sold and it was exactly the same. He is willing to help with any questions or concerns. He also made time to show up to my closing of my new place even though he didn't have to be there since the house was FSBO and he just did the paperwork for me. It is so wonderful to know that you have someone on your side looking out for you, and Verne is definitely that person! Jessica

Verne is Nominated for Person of the Year--Please read the nomination below:

I would like to nominate Verne Folkmann for 2010 Person of the Year. When I moved to Iowa City in March, several friends referred me to Folkmann, a local realtor. Throughout my home buying process, Folkmann frequently spoke about the benefits of community service and encouraged me to get involved. He sponsored me as a new Rotary Club member, invited me to fundraisers for the Ronald McDonald House, Athletes in Action, the Children's Hospital and many more.

I have also seen Folkmann working at a number of other community events, including a celebrity "pie in the face" fundraiser. As vice president of the Rotary Club, Verne represented our chapter at the International Convention and leads the club in new member recruitment. As a Johnson County I-Club Board Member, Folkmann sponsored the Kirk Ferentz luncheon, the Fran McCaffrey luncheon and one of the Friday morning I-Club breakfasts.

As I attended these events, I met many other people who Folkmann has welcomed to the community. We talked about the impression Folkmann made on us by not only selling us a house, but helping us find our own ways to give back to the community.

I just read in the Press Citizen that the local realtors' association recently honored Folkmann with their Distinguished Service Award. It is great that Folkmann's peers recognize his exemplary efforts!

Please consider my nomination of Verne Folkmann as 2010 Person of the Year. You would be honoring a very hard-working individual who has made an impact on many people and worthy organizations.
