Chad has helped me buy, sell, and buy again in just three years. All three deals went in my favor and I have always been amazed at Chad’s responsiveness, work ethic, and motivation.

- Rob Shriver

Chad was excellent. Always on top of what was happening and quick to respond. We had a very specific set of requirements that was not easily found. He was more than happy to show us a wide range of properties that gave us a great understanding of the area and market, and when the right one came available we were the first ones in to view, and had an offer in the works before the others started rolling in quickly behind ours.

- Anthony Martin

Chad made my first time home buying experience not only fun and exciting- but a total breeze. Another huge thanks to Noah for all of his help during the process. Total dynamic duo. 🤩

- Haley Willett

“Chad was amazing to work with throughout the entire process of getting our house ready to list, getting it on the market and reviewing multiple offers and selecting the right one. Chad also helped us find the perfect house and navigate through every step up through closing. We encountered bumps along the way and issues that had to be addressed and Chad was able to keep us from freaking out and work with the other agent to address all issues and ensure everyone was satisfied.
His communication and reassurance through the entire experience gave us complete confidence in Chad. There’s no way that I’ll be able to put into words how awesome Chad was to work with and his attention to every detail throughout. He found us the perfect home so it might be awhile before we are in need of his services again but I recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a home to enlist Chad as their agent, without a doubt he’ll exceed all of your expectations.”

- Steve & Deb Gladson

“Just finished purchasing a home with Chad as my agent. He has very detailed knowledge of the Cedar Rapids area and the home market. As a first time buyer, I leaned heavily on that knowledge and wound up with a great home at a great price. The new home needed a new roof, and Chad was able to link me to a reputable roofer that got the job done before closing. I highly recommend using Chad as an agent and trusting him to give great advice.”

- Nate Smith

Chad’s work ethic is what sets him apart. If you’re looking for a realtor that is responsive and knowledgeable he’s your guy. Chad helped us find a great home at the right price. Don’t settle for a realtor who operates on their name alone – Chad puts in the work to make your homebuying/selling experience great!

- Ryan Koenig

We were looking for a new house and found a listing we were interested in. Having not found a realtor to that point that we felt was working proactively for us, we just said we were interested in being shown the house and of the three “recommended” agents the web site gave us, Chad was quick in responding and got our business. From our first meeting with him it was clear he wanted to listen to our wish list and find the right house for us. He was on top of everything! He guided us through the home buying process with absolute knowledge and expertise. We would recommend him in a heart-beat and are turning him now to sell our old house. Chad is simply the best!

- Sean McCallum

If you want your house sold quickly, AND you would prefer to work with a personable and caring person, then Chad is the realtor for you. Someone once told me, “If you want something done, give it to a busy person.” Chad is definitely busy (a testament to how great of a realtor he is), and he definitely gets things done. He did an amazing job of communicating with us throughout the sale of our home–just a couple of weeks. And, he was available whenever we needed him. I would recommend Chad every day of the week–but, only to those who need to sell a home quickly. =)

- Daniel Dyrland

Chad was a great help to us as first time home buyers. He was very knowledgeable and was always willing to go an extra mile for us. He always answered his phone and emails from us and we never had to worry about anything with the process of buying our new home.

- Rebecca Meier

Chad gave us outstanding customer service & assisted us through the entire process. He was in constant contact, informative & a pleasure to work with. He helped us get our home in such a short amount of time. Thank you!

- Ingrid Lacayo

I have bought and sold over 200 properties in my lifetime and have never come across a person as qualified, genuine and at the top of their game as I found in Chad Gloede. He recently sold my home when three other listing agents turned it down. He not only got me my price… but he had a buyer a day before the house was even listed. Because of his professionalism and writing skills my home has 144 views verses the others that had no more than 20 views. This man is service oriented all the way. I only wish I would have had a partner with his qualities when I was investing in real estate. This man blows the competition away! You absolutely will not find a more qualified, personable and genuine agent than Mr. Gloede! Trust me!

- Joseph Daugherty

Chad is a great realtor! He went above and beyond in my home purchase. He was thorough, honest, generous with his time, and always willing to help me walk through the steps of purchasing a home. As a first time home buyer he put me at ease and made the process smooth and easy. Buying a home sometimes brought many challenges and at each step of the way Chad brought solutions. I am grateful for all of the hard work that Chad put in and at the end of the day I own a beautiful home!

- Vanessa Sheppard

My husband and I have relocated 4 times in the past 8 years because of work…bought and sold a house each time. Chad is the best realtor we have ever worked with. He is super knowledgeable, responsive, supportive, and trustworthy. If you don’t hire him, you’re nuts!

- Jessica Moon

Where do we even begin? Chad was beyond amazing to work with. When we first started working with Chad he sat down and listened very closely to exactly what we were looking for. Chad was great at sharing properties that met the criteria we were looking for. Chad was very patient with us as we were very particular about what we wanted. As soon as our home hit the market Chad was able to immediately schedule us a private visit. We got into the home and fell in love with the home and the property. Chad quickly put together an offer and immediately began working on all the details. Chad was very vigilant about ensuring not only that this was the perfect property for us, he also ensured to offer assistance every step of the way. Chad is very knowledgeable about the real estate business and ensured that we were taken care of in every possible way. Working with Chad made our home buying process simple and stress free. We have very busy schedules and Chad was more than accommodating to work with and meet with us outside of traditional timeframes. Even after closing, Chad has checked in with us numerous times to ensure we are comfortable and settling well into our new home. We highly recommend Chad as your realtor whether you’re buying or selling. He is honest, reliable, dependable and trustworthy. You won’t be disappointed working with Chad, we certainly were not.
