Roxy B.


Honest and forthright

Kathy was very helpful in helping us look for a house in the location we needed.  She would contact us every time a house came up for sale that she thought we might be interested in.  She even contacted us on houses she knew were going to be for sale and gave us first looks.  She was also extremely helpful helping us with what we needed to do in order to get our house ready to sell.  Any question or inquiry we made of her, she answered in a timely fashion and was very honest.  She is very experienced and will go over and beyond what you ask of her.

Katie S.


Very honest

Kathy was great and so helpful with everything!  We were trying to sell our house by ourselves but weren’t having any luck.  Kathy contacted us and it was sold in no time.  Using a realtor is the way to go!  I definitely recommend Kathy Holstein for your buying or selling needs!

Using a realtor is the way to go

Kathy did a great job helping us complete the process of closing our home.  She’s very knowledgeable and gives great advice.  Very professional and quickly respond to phone calls and questions.  Highly recommend.

gives great advice

We were looking for 4 bds around the Cherokee/Schaller area.  She knew which houses would fit what we were looking for and called or emailed us with info.  When we decided on a home she was on vacation but made sure everything was taken care of.  Kathy is a friendly and knowledgeable agent.  I highly recommend her.

Rachel S.


Knew what we needed

Kathy has great market knowledge and specifically knows what additions will help sell your property even faster.  She is very easy to work with and handles all the stresses of selling a home for you!

She did very good, kind and patient realtor.  Knew what we were looking for. She is clear in communicating information and approachable.  I appreciate the cooperation of the rest of the staff.

Ana & Timothy W.


Kind and patient

Kathy is amazing!  I will be calling her again when we start looking for a house again.  Kathy is very attentive to your questions.  She is very helpful in all areas of the “figuring out” what you need to do next and so forth.  She is very kind and very helpful.  I greatly appreciate everything she did to help us with trying to buy a home.

Dawn & John B.


Very kind and very helpful

Kathy understood our needs and worked with us to find just the right home.  She has been very responsive to our questions and concerns, has made herself available to us on short notice and has made purchasing a home extremely hassle free.

Linda Y.


Understood our needs

Kathy was always available to answer any questions we had in buying our first home.  She is from the area and worked well with the listing agent as well as the bank, home inspector and appraiser.

If you want an agent dedicated to you as a buyer, I would highly recommend Kathy.  I’m sure the same can be said if you were selling.

We put in an offer and closed on our house in less than a month.  We also closed on the date we picked when we put our offer in.  I would attribute the ease and smoothness of the whole process in part to Kathy’s work.  We couldn’t have had a better experience in purchasing our first home.

Shane B.


First time home buyer

Kathy is very competent and dedicated to her clients.  She went above and beyond to help us purchase a house and we were very pleased with her work.  She is readily available to her clients and is very helpful.  She makes the whole process as easy and painless as possible.  You cannot go wrong working with Kathy, she is a thorough professional.

Julie & Ashok S.


Competent and dedicated to her clients

Home ownership has been a possible dream through the highest degree of service and integrity displayed by Century 21’s Agent, Kathy Holstein.  It has been a joy and pleasure to walk through this process trusting that she had our best interest in mind all along.  Kathy did all the hard work for us alleviating the stress and making home ownership smooth and enjoyable.

Paul & Elizabeth B.


Attained our dream of home ownership

Very helpful and knowledgeable.  Responsive to any of our concerns.

Lee B.


Sold Mother’s home for us

It was Great.  We were constantly amazed at the professionalism, hard work, knowledge and extreme helpfulness she provided to us.  As a matter of fact we have already recommended her to Bill’s sister.  If anyone is ever in the market to buy or sell in the Storm Lake area, we will always recommend Kathy!  She is still helping us and we have closed!  The best experience in buying a home we have ever had!  We would love to have her over for dinner….as soon as we get settled!

Bill & Kaoru


We will always recommend Kathy

Kathy Holstein was the agent who was given the job of selling the building at 115 Main, Alta.  She was very pleasant to work with, and very professional.  Within 2 days from when she first showed us the  building, the deal was done.  She was very organized, and due to that, was able to put the deal together quickly.  We also dealt with Kathy when we were interested in an acreage north of Alta.  On two separate occasions, both Saturdays, she came up so we could take a look at the property, and when we had questions she didn’t have the answer for, she was on the phone and got the answers for us.  I highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell.

Gary E.


Commercial building purchased

Kathy helped my husband and I buy a business in Alta, Iowa.  I would recommend Kathy to anyone that is looking to buy a business or a home.  Kathy answered all our questions and if she did not know an answer she found it out.  Kathy also was helping us out when we were thinking of buying a home in late 2009.  She met us at the house on more than one occasion.  I selected a home in the service provided because they did not have a business there.

Deb E.


Bought a commercial building

Kathy worked with us for over 2 years and throughout that entire time she never once failed to return a call– was always there with honest, up front advice and guidance.  In the end we ended up buying a house that was more or less for sale by owner but convinced the seller to list it with Kathy and we paid MORE for the house than the asking price to ensure she had a commission.  That is how good she was– and how pleased we were with her service!

Anthony M.


Extremely happy with her service
