Working full time as a real estate team under our business name McDaniel Real Estate Services, Inc., we are happy to partner with RE/MAX Concepts. Our team specializes in resale and relocation properties, and brings over 24 years of combined real estate sales experience to each transaction. While our office is located in Ankeny, we do work in all communities surrounding the Des Moines metro area. We average 45-50 closed transactions per year with our average sales volume at $7.5 million per year.
Each of us has specialties and expertise in different areas of the real estate business- new construction homes, relocation process and third party relocation company certification, marketing, finance, market analysis, staging, home buying, and home selling.
Neither one of us is just an agent. We are both licensed Realtors© with additional designations earned through sales volume and additional education. Each of us have pledged to the National Code of Ethics and adhere to always improving and educating ourselves.
We work together and do not compete with one another. If one of us is busy or has other obligations the other can step in and assist without missing a step. Because we work together we are both aware of our client's situation and can step in whenever necessary.
We both focus heavily on all marketing techniques so in essence you get two agents working diligently to get your home sold.
Both of us work in real estate full time and clients can contact either one of us at any time.

Graduate Realtor® Institute, GRI- Both of us hold this designation. This is awarded in the residential sales field and recognizes sales professionals who have completed additional education.
