Testimonials

“Natalie was great to work with. She was very organized and detail-oriented. She maintained a cool head and was good at negotiation and appropriate communication with the buyer’s Realtor. If I need to sell my house again, Natalie will be the first person I call.”
-Andrea Fox, Bettendorf, IA

Our family recently decided to make a bold move out of the Midwest to the East coast. We had just purchased a home there to be built and therefore, needed to sell our home in Davenport quickly. Ryan had a clear understanding of our needs and hit the ground running right away. We were so impressed with his knowledge, marketing tactics, and passion for the job. He created a beautiful video of our home and sent a talented, professional photographer to help create the listing. By the time it had posted, Ryan had already lined up multiple showings and sold our house within 24 hours! We will always recommend Ryan Van Daele to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home! He is top notch!
-Carissa Higley, Davenport, IA

“Natalie was the best! Very responsive and able to work around our busy schedule to show us the houses needed and accommodate us when needed. Has terrific knowledge of the area!”
-Kevin and Valerie Kieler, Davenport, IA

“Thank you Ryan. Ryan listed my Father’s home and we had a buyer the very first day it was on the market. We closed within a month. I really appreciated Ryan’s professional advice and support through the entire process. I was impressed with Ryan’s knowledge and enthusiasm and I am convinced these qualities made this such a positive experience. Again, Thank you!!!”
-Gail Hess, Moline, IL

“Natalie is amazing! She is extremely helpful with helping people figure out what they are looking for, and proactive about getting it for them. She made my first home purchase experience go as smoothly as possible, and even gave me recommendations for repair/remodeling professionals upon request.  She is very personable and a great advocate for her client’s interests, and truly goes the extra mile. I would recommend Natalie to anyone looking for a great Realtor!”
-Sara Steinbeck, Rock Island, IL

“I have nothing but amazing things to say about Ryan VanDaele. I had my home listed with another realtor for 150 days with no offers and extremely limited showings. When I wanted to cancel my contract, I was told that there was nothing another Realtor could do for me other than lower the price. That was far from the truth. Ryan invests himself into your property/home. He will make sure your home is properly staged and photographed. His networking and use of social media is outstanding. Other Realtors will have you opt our of social media but this is a terrible mistake. When used properly, social media can sell your home quickly. Ryan sold my home in 1 week for my asking price. I am extremely thankful for his dedication to real estate and his obvious love for what he does.”
-Amy Vahrenwald, Davenport, IA

“Natalie was excellent to work with. She was patient and very knowledgeable. She showed us a few different homes until we settled on one in Fyre Lake. I would highly recommend her.”
-James and Barbara Sennet, Sherrard, IL

“Ryan did a great job for us! We bought a house within two weeks of meeting with him and he sold our old house within 2 weeks of it being in the market! Very knowledgable of market conditions and great communication!”
-Emily McDaniel, East Moline, IL

“Natalie was flat out amazing. She will honestly go above and beyond just to make your process as smooth as possible. This was the first time I sold property. Natalie answered all the questions I had and was very quick with her responses. Before my house was listed, she was proactive and had a mission plan established to sell my condo and it worked very well. During the times of the viewings she was very accommodating and made it as small of an inconvenience to me as possible. I would highly recommend her.”
-Mike Kurek, Davenport, IA 

“Beth, we are now clear to close! I just have to take a moment to thank those people working diligently behind the scenes to make this process painless. My Realtor, Ryan VanDaele, has been patient with me for almost a year now. He saw me at my absolute worst in 2010, literally hanging onto life by a thread. That was the last time he saw me until some random coincidence brought us back together for this exciting chapter of my life. And, it was he, who referred me to my incredible mortgage loan officer, Cissi Leinonen, who just so happens to be a friend that’s also seen me during some extremely difficult years. If those aren’t “God Things,” I don’t know what is!!”
-Beth Lorenzen, Eldridge, IA

“Working with Natalie was great! She was always very on top of things and very friendly. This was my first time buying a home and she helped me step by step through the whole process. I was also out of town a lot during the process so she did a lot of digital files for me so we didn’t get behind on  anything. Highly recommend!”
-Kaci Stirling, Davenport, IA

“Ryan is extremely timely and efficient! His approachable personality, knowledge, and skill set lends itself to a remarkable home buying experience! As a first time home buyer, I’d highly recommend Ryan to anyone!”
-Lindsay Reynolds Roisen, Davenport, IA

“Natalie was such a tremendous help in assisting my family in finding our dream home! She was very responsive and always made sure to listen to our needs. You will not need to worry about the stressful items of home buying- she helped us enjoy every minute! We definitely recommend her to any and all  looking to buy/sell.”
-Timmy and Hannah Gray, Hampton, IL 

“I don’t know where to start. We had another realtor with another company representing us. Needless to say they had 6 months to sell our house and didn’t get the job done. We had very little traffic. We kept being told that we were competing with new construction homes and they were unable to get people to even look at our home due to fact there were so many in our price range. Well enter Ryan Van Daele – REALTOR. He sought us out, made an amazing video of our home and started marketing it that same day. Ryan went above and beyond what we expected with his advertising, marketing, and communication. Ryan is dedicated to his job and cares about his clients’ needs. With Ryan’s strategy he was able to sell our home within 22 days! Yes, 22 days! His dedication and expertise yielded multiple offers, a bidding war and an offer for more than our asking price.
If you are looking to buy or sell your home I highly recommend using Ryan Van Deale at Keller Williams! Trust me, he will get the job done!”
-Stephen Aitken, Davenport, IA

“I’ll be referring everyone I know to Natalie. I still cannot believe how stress free she made the buying process. (The last home I purchased using a DIFFERENT Realtor was MUCH more stressful. I can’t say enough great things about Natalie and the great job she did helping us find a home!”
-Kelly Irlbeck, Davenport, IA 

“Ryan VanDaele!!! You are amazing!! As a friend and my favorite realtor!! 2 months i try to sell my house on my own with no luck and knowing the business. In 5 days you have it done! Thank you!! Thank you!! THANK YOU!!!”
-Christine Schnipkoweit, Moline, IL

“Natalie is awesome. Always quick to respond to email/texts. Quick to schedule showings & keep us informed. Very knowledgeable as a Realtor. Would definitely refer her to everyone.”
-Darrin and Shelli Frye, Le Claire, IA

“Ryan is an amazing Real Estate Agent. He is so easy to get along with, listens to your needs and then assesses the situation accordingly. He is very driven, and adds a certain amount of creativity to the mix, which keeps things upbeat and fun. If you are looking to buy or sell, you can’t go wrong by giving Ryan a call.”
-Karen Bishop, Moline, IL

“Natalie was a blessing to my situation. I was in crunch time with losing my house and it was on the market six months, with no traffic, before Natalie got on board. When she signed on, it was straight to business getting the house sold. A steady flow of buyers was seeing the house, she gave me great advice with setting up the presentation of the house and since it was a short sale, Natalie walked me through every step of the process. Thank you again Natalie, your knowledge and experience as a Realtor, got my house sold and helped me move on to the next chapter of life.”
-Jason Davis, Davenport, IA

“In June of 2015 my wife and I were married. It was a dream to own our own home, a dream that always seemed next to impossible. There are so many things that come along with buying a house, not to mention all of the obstacles that we were unaware of. It just seemed so intimidating and out of reach. One day we were out with some friends who had just moved here from Alabama. They were a young couple like us who had just married and bought a house. They told us about how easy the process was. I was quite impressed with them because their version of buying a house was contrary to the type of experiences I’ve heard from almost everyone else. We kept talking and I realized that it wasn’t just good luck that they had such a great experience. It was the team of people they had fighting for them that made the biggest purchase of their life such a great experience.
My first call was to a finance guy, (Dan Schimanski) who put me in touch with Ryan VanDaele. One of my first impressions was, “This guy drives a Prius”. LOL. That might show you how hard I can be to please with my pre-judgments. I had talked with a couple of realtors in the past and they were nothing like Ryan. You may not be able to see it at first with most realtors, but the majority of them really just want to close a sale. I can’t blame them, we all have to eat, but I want better than that for myself. I want someone who is going to be the best for me. I don’t want someone who is just good, or ok, or whatever. I want the best possible realtor. I want a realtor to find the precious gem of a house that is hidden away somewhere, and then I want him to basically steal it for me by getting me the best possible price. I want a guy who knows what I should be cautious and leery of when buying a house.
Ryan did such an amazing job. He was up front with us about everything and open with us about the process. He answered all of our questions and was very patient with us. One Saturday we looked at over 15 homes (it took us all day and it was in the middle of January, VERY cold) and I finally understood why he had to buy a Prius. It was because people like me had him driving all over the Quad Cities. When you divide the money he made by the hours he worked, he couldn’t have made much. I appreciate his patience so much!
What it really comes down to is money. Ryan was very professional with the way he put in the offer and the way he presented it to the sellers. He made them understand our side and we came to a price that really benefited us and far exceeded our expectations. He was excellent at getting us the deal he did and I love bragging about it to people when I tell them the story of us buying our first house. It really is a pleasure writing this recommendation. Ryan is not just a great guy he is a fighter who will fight hard for you. I guarantee you will not go with a different realtor after buying with Mr. VanDaele. Thank you, Ryan, for making the dream of our first house such a fun and pleasant reality.”
-Pete and Samantha Lindblad, Milan, IL

If you are looking for an agent who has a heart of gold, one you can trust, and will do the right thing for the client then Natalie is your agent.  My husband and I hired Natalie to sell our home, that we truly loved.  It was a more challenging home to sell, since it had tons of  vintage charm that is not always appreciated in today’s market.  She hung in there and tried everything to make the sale happen, which it finally did, she never lost hope.  Natalie truly keeps the client first and is worth hiring, because she is honest, trustworthy, and always follows through.”
-Anita Zemba-Schadt, Davenport, IA

“Cannot Thank this guy enough!!! Our move has been stressful because it happened so quick; however Ryan made the process of selling a home stress free. He sold our home in 10 days, always kept us up to date, worked hard (went out of his way to come over to sign relocation papers), cares about his clients, and is so dedicated to his job! If anyone is looking to buy or sell I recommend using Ryan VanDaele at Keller Williams! If not you’re missing out! Thanks again your AWESOME!”
-Kelsey Creen Oldaker, Davenport, IA

“Natalie was eager to resolve problems and find the answer to questions. She was quick to find the contractors information when it was needed. I was very busy while selling my condo and out of town for a while but felt she was watching out for my interests. Very happy in general.”
-Patti Adrian, Davenport, IA

“Ryan provided a unique, out-of-the box solution to finding a property that fit my needs. Not only would I use Ryan again, but highly recommend him for anyone with a real estate need.”
-Andy Seynaeve, Hampton, IL

“Natalie is the most thoughtful and professional person I know. Her attention to detail and consideration for the well being of her client makes her the best real estate agent in the area. She has helped me personally with multiple properties (professional and personal) and my entire family has  enlisted her to assist them with real estate transactions, each time to great success! Thank you so much Natalie!”
-Alec and Amber Schorg, Rock Island, IL

“I know you guys eventually follow-up with customers, but I wanted to jump the gun and let Ryan know what I thought.
He got placed into a situation with some unexpected foibles with the house and me stuck 4+ hours away. He’s been proactive getting everything to me and making it so that I didn’t have to disrupt my work schedule by giving me e-documents, etc to fill out.
As I noted, I dreaded selling the house and figured it would be the most stressful part of the estate. Ryan promised he’d take care of things–and he did. I appreciate that integrity a great deal and I’m very happy to have dealt with him.”
-Jim Dietz, Davenport, IA

-Janice and Don Bybee, Davenport, IA

“Natalie was very professional, skilled and thorough in the handling of the sale of my home.

Overall a great experience and I couldn’t ask for a better  real estate agent to assist me in any future endeavors!”
-Josh Garcia, Rock Island, IL

“Ryan is an outstanding real estate agent, and overall just a great guy. Make a good friend and get a great house at the same time!”
-Josh Phillips, Davenport, IA

“Knowing that I would have a limited budget with champagne taste I was searching for a home on my own. Using apps provided by several Realtors. My thought process was not wanting to be a burden and having anyone losing patience with me. And then I found Natalie! She never gave up and knew exactly what I was looking for. She asked the right questions to help her help me. Timing is everything in searching for a house with my criteria and she knew that as well. We became very close through this transaction and she was exactly who I needed to find my new home. Extremely happy with her efficiency and spot on wealth of knowledge! She’s honest, courteous, and never gave up on me. With her help it took several weeks for her to find my home. I on the other hand had been searching for 4-1/2 months.”
-Cindy Faas, Davenport, IA

“Ryan is very professional and accommodating!”
-Stephanie Lewis, Davenport

“Where to begin…We first met Natalie a few years back when we were looking to buy a house. The very first house we looked at she happened to be representing it. She was very knowledgable, and she gave us some great pointers. At that time we decided not to buy a house, as the timing was not right.  Skip forward two years, we decided to contact Natalie because she had been so informational years ago. She welcomed us back aboard the journey of buying our first home. She was beyond our expectations of a realtor. She took the time to listen to what suited us and our needs, and fought for us when it was necessary. Not only was Natalie great at her job, she was also very personable. She took the time to build a great client relationship. We will always recommend and choose Natalie for all of our buying or selling needs.”
-Melissa Reller, Le Claire, IA

“Eric and I would like to let you know how grateful we are for all your help throughout our home buying experience. You listened to all our needs and you were able to help us find a home with everything we were looking for in a short amount of time. Your expert technology skills allowed us to receive, review, and sign documents even though we were located an hour away from your office. We appreciate all you have done for us and would recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Quad Cities area.”
-Eric and PJ Loy, Rock Island

“Natalie helped us purchase our home in Davenport in 2011. When we were relocated for my husband’s job in 2012, she was the obvious choice in a real estate agent for us. She is calm, confident, and gets the job done. We had no issues with relocation paperwork and our home sold in 6 days! Natalie put us, her clients, first. She went above and beyond her call of duty. We’d highly recommend her to families who relocate for career reasons. She was an excellent help with buying and selling!”
-Char and Kyle Schleucher, Davenport, IA

“Ryan was helpful as I relocated to the Quad Cities. He was responsive to my questions. When I bought a condo in the community, Ryan served me well as my Realtor. The process was seamless and stress free.”
-Jay Willsher, Bettendorf, IA

“Natalie is very professional, knowledgable and easy to work with. I used her 3 years ago when I purchased my condo. I also just referred my sister and family to her as well and Natalie helped them find the home of their dreams. Natalie is a huge asset to Ruhl&Ruhl. She represents the company very positively. If I or any family/friends need real estate assistance, we will be working with Natalie.”
-Matt Donahue, Davenport, IA

“Ryan was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and personable. We dealt with an agent once before in Memphis, TN when we were in the “inquiry stage,” and she didn’t compare to the assistance we received from Ryan. If we ever need real estate assistance again, we will definitely be interested in using Ryan.
Thanks for the great service!”
-Ethan and Leana Owen, Le Claire, IA

-Jim and Sue Roberts, Bettendorf, IA

“My relocation was already confusing and stressful and pleasantly, Natalie made this one of the best experiences.

The CAN DO ATTITUDE is her to a T. You will not be disappointed.”
-Ali and Casey Kuhl, Bettendorf, IA

“We had our house listed on our own for over 6 months without any viable offers or positive outlook on making a sale and once we started working with Natalie she had our house sold in a bit over a month. My wife and I are extremely pleased and thankful that we worked with her when we did. Our only regret is that we did not contact her sooner.”
-Ryan and Susan McGivern, Bettendorf, IA
