"We knew that selling a house during an economic downturn would be a challenge. We were very pleased with the skill Tina, at Kalona Realty, Inc. showed in this process. She was persistant as well as patient in negotiations, responding quickly and positively to questions and offering helpful suggestions. Communication was immediate and ongoing through email and phone calls. Her professional skills were crucial in the sucessful sale of our house."
Hayley was a tremendous delight to work with. Her insight and expertise on what TLC our home needed for the next owner was spot on. She held us accountable for our part as the sellers, at the same time respecting what the buyer would want, and deserve for their part.
The photo representation of our home was awesome. Though we were ready to move to our new forever home, the photo's she took reminded me of why I fell in love with place decades earlier.
Thank you Hayley, for assisting us to our next steps of life. It was a great experience working with you. - R&R

I found that the Kalona Realty produced fast results and gave me very competent service from the first day that I listed my house. When I left the house vacant and moved from the community, they followed up by keeping an eye on the property and made sure the necessary workmen were called in and the work was done as needed.
I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their home as they were considerate, knowledgeable and aggressive.

I've had experiences with numerous Realtors over the years. Hayley is by far the best. She is on time to appointments, attentive to emails and knowledgable. I highly recommend her for your real-estate needs.
Her efficiency in getting my house sold was beyond my expectations. She was dedicated to make my experience quick and hassle free. She is very friendly and personable. It only took a few hours to settle the buying and selling of each property. I will definitely use her expertise for all my future real estate needs.
She did a great job finding us a new property and selling our home!
Hayley keep the process smooth and took the stress out of it for us and would recommend her to anyone!
After having our house on the market for 8 months with a big Iowa City firm we decided to change to Kalona Realty, Inc. The difference was enormous! Tina immediately took charge, told us what a fair price would be, and gave us advice on how to make our house more "sellable". This was great for us since we had the added problem of having already moved out of state. Our house had "issues" but Tina led us the whole way and really took care of us! The communication was fantastic and a great relief considering we live 500 miles away!
- Shawn & Kathleen
The best to work with! Had a great experience and excellent communication.
She helped us sell our old hose and purchase our new house and was amazing to work with. Would defiantly use again!
We loved Hayley. She was great to work with and was so quick at getting our home bought for us when we needed it. She knew we had been looking for a home for quite awhile and when the one came available she was on it, within a day we had an offer in and accepted. And now we are in our home and are loving every bit of it. She was amazing!
We tried to sell our home FSBO for a short time and Hayley showed it to a few people...no pressure to sign a contract with her. When the time came for us to list with a Realtor Hayley was professional and respectful of our decisions. She listed it and 2.5 days later it was sold. Hayley handled all the details quickly and professionally. I would definitely recommend her. I never plan to move again but if I did I would call Hayley for sure.
Hayley was a pleasure to work with and a great help. She was knowledgeable, experienced and made me feel at ease, She has been helpful even after the sale helping me find someone to do some repairs after a storm.
Hayley went above and beyond to find our perfect home! We were 400 miles away and she worked to find us exactly what we wanted and needed! She was amazing!
Punctual, very organized, and took the time to understand my wants and needs. Very pleasant to work with, a positive attitude. Knowledgeable about market trends and the buying/selling process. Would recommend her to anyone.
Hayley helped us find the perfect home and made the whole process so easy! The house was listed out of our price range, but Hayley managed to talk sellers into selling it for less, so we got a great deal.
Hayley was very helpful with my purchase of a home. I would recommend her to anyone in the area. I loved how she kept me updated throughout the process.
Dealing with Hayley made house hunting fun. She showed me everything she had to offer and didn't pressure me into buying anything. Finding the right house for me was just as important to her as it was myself. I had no idea what I was doing and she made it a very easy, enjoyable process. Everyone I know that has bought a house through Hayley has had nothing but good things to say about her as well. Go through Hayley Hersherger at Kalona Realty, Inc. She will not let you down!
Haley was showing our home within two days of listing it with her. She advised us on the listing price, as well as little things we could do to make it show well. When it came to price negotiation or minor repairs needed, she was right on with her advice. The closing was an easy finish to our home sale.
Hayley was amazing to work with. She made both the buying and selling process so simple. She gave great advice in preparing our home for sale and took calls/answered questions promptly.
Tina, helped me find the right house by asking me what I was really looking for in a house. She really listened to my wishes and my concerns. She went that extra mile in letting me see a house more than once. She never tried to steer me or preasure me. I have recommended her to others and will defantly call her if I should need a new place.
Hayley was very responsive and got me into the houses I wanted to see. As a first time home buyer I felt at ease through the entire process as she was able to walk me through all the many steps and answer my questions.
My husband and I were moving to Iowa from Missouri and a local friend referred us to Hayley at Kalona Realty. We wouldn't of even known where to start with house hunting on our own, but luckily we never had to worry about that because Hayley lead the way! She worked with us long distance and fit in showings on our short trips to Iowa as we secured jobs. She was always responsive and professional. We've now been in our home a year and still love it!
It was a delight to work with Hayley from start to finish. She gave us great ideas on our house, to help it sell, took wonderful photos, sat down to discuss each step of the process of selling our house, great communication and she made it fun. If we had to do it again, we would go with Hayley.
Hayley was very attentive to our needs and desires and listened very well. We had an good idea that we wanted to wait about a half a year to save up more money for a down payment but had Hayley send us listings she thought we might be interested in in case there was a house we just couldn't pass up. She never got frustrated when we kept waiting and eventually after 6 months when we were more ready she found a home that was perfect for us and made the process painless. Would definitely recommend using her if you are looking for a home.
Hayley was awesome to work with during the process of finding and buying a home. My girlfriend and I looked at a few houses before we found the one for us, and She was always there to work around our schedule. She is very knowledgeable about the houses she is selling and made the process go so smoothly with the seller. It was a very fun experience for both of us and couldn't have done it without Hayley!
We have dealt with Haley Hershberger for a new home,Haley has always been very Knowledgeable,Friendly and very Responsive. I would recommend her to anyone and will be using her in the future.
Hayley was great to work with. She took care of everything for me, and made it pretty much stress free! She answered all my questions and kept in contact with me through the whole process.
Tina was everything and more that I could have asked for in a Realtor! I was looking and buying my first home and she jumped on helping me that same day I asked her. She walked me through many choices in homes that were fitting for me in the area, always kept me in the loop with communications, helped me negotiate on price and details of buying my home, and overall made my first home buying experience a GREAT one! I'd recommend Tina to anyone in the Kalona area!
Hayley was great to work with during the home buying search. She made herself readily available to help as much as she could. I would absolutely recommend Hayley.
Hayley went above and beyond to show me houses and make sure I got the best deal! Very good at adjusting her schedule to accommodate yours! I will definitely call her if I'm in the market again!
As a first time home owner we couldn't have ask for a better realtor!!! Hayley is absolutely amazing she was able to work with our crazy schedule didn't push or hurry us by any means!!! We looked at quite a few houses and even she knew when my fiancé and I fell in love with our home and we closed almost immediately and right where we wanted to be!!! Thanks again Hayley truly a great realtor a person all around!!!
As a small business owner constantly running and getting pulled different directions I appreciate efficient and great service. Last year I closed on (4) different properties both personally and for my business with Hayley representing me on each one and I could not have been more pleased. She is extremely pleasant to work with and not pushy at all but when it's time to get things done she never fails! I will gladly work with Hayley on any future real estate needs and I would not hesitate to recommend Hayley for your personal or business needs.
Sue and I were very pleased with the services of Kalona Realty. Tina conducts business with professional courtesy and in a timely fashion. She has a wealth of real estate knowledge. The cumbersome process of selling our home was much easier due to her guidance. We have purchased and sold a number of homes over the years with a number of agents and found Tina and Hayley to be among the finest. If we need the assistance in selling another home we will call on the services of Kalona Realty.
Tina at Kalona Realty was there every step of the way to help us find and purchase our first home. She always responded to our questions and concerns in a prompt manner and kept us informed during the whole process. She was especially great at negotiating with the seller's agent to get us exactly what we needed and wanted, and we would highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property.
Tina was so patient, kind, and went the extra mile for us. We can't say enough how much we appreciated the numerous times she had to redo the paperwork and she did it with a caring attitude.
If you want someone who really cares for her clients, is honest, has integrity, and goes the extra mile we highly recommend Tina

Hayley is a great realtor! We loved that she spent extra time with us to find the perfect house in our budget! I also referred my brother when he was looking for his first home to go with Haley. I just really appreciated how honest she was with us when buying our first home.
Hayley was very helpful to us in prioritizing our requirements in what we were looking for in a house, as well as keeping us (me mostly) in check and often had to reign me in from being unrealistic in my wants and needs. She also maintained communication with us quite a while after we closed, to ensure we were still happy with our decision! We will definitely go back to her in the future if we ever buy or sell again!
Hayley did a great job. She took beautiful pictures of our home and brought in the eventual buyer of our home. She also showed and closed on the house we purchased. Hayley was efficient and responsive through the entire process. Would definitely recommend.
Tina...Was very helpful on my purchasing my home! I needed painting, carpet replace and wood floor refurbished. She gave me recommendations. She contacted them for me and arranged dates for the work to be done. I was very impress with this. It really help my stress level. Thank-you so much!!!
would highly suggest Hayley! She's made the buying/selling process simple & as stress free as could be. Thank you so much Kalona realty for helping us get our dream home.
I couldn't of done it with out them. Great place to go if in the market for a home in the Kalona area. They made it very easy for me being my first home buying adventure. The follow up after we closed was outstanding.
I had a wonderful experience working with Tina on buying a house. Very helpful and worked with me thru every step. I liked that I was supporting a local business.
Tina patiently walked us through multiple homes but then offered a creative solution for combining our family home and a home for our local business. We were a little skeptical and almost didn't look at the property. With her encouragement we did, however, and we are SO thankful. We now have a dream home above our business and are absolutely loving it. If it wasn't for her creativity and thinking outside the box, we would have missed this opportunity. We talked to all three realtors at various times in the process and all were very helpful and knowledgeable!
It was a pleasure working with Tina in the marketing and sale of my home. Tina went above and beyond the call of duty at every turn. She was responsive to my questions with timely and accurate information. Tina is skilled at using technology, both in communications and documents signings. It is clear that Tina has a passion for real estate, but what sets her apart is her interpersonal skills as she builds friendly, yet professional relationships with clients from the Kalona area and beyond. I highly recommend her and would readily return to Kalona Realty with future real estate needs.
What a fantastic team. I knew after the first showing with Tina ,that I wanted to be a part of a special community with a sense of neighborhood pride and caring. All at Kalona Realty not only provided me with the history of the area, but also the "happenings" of the local community. The follow through and leadership of this team compares to no other that I've had the experience to work with. I knew I was in great hands, and highly suggest Kalona Realty, Inc. for your future Real estate Endeavors
Kalona Realty Inc. keeps the client's best interests in mind, whether you are buying or selling a home, or even looking for a rental property. We found Tina to be a very honest realtor who truly wants her clients to be happy with your new home. We were especially impressed with her dedication to fully explain all of the features of our new home. If there was something we asked that needed additional clarification, Tina communicated with us in a timely manner to answer our questions. We would highly recommend Tina and Kalona Realty, Inc. to anyone interested in purchasing a new home in the Kalona area. We had a wonderful experience with Tina and know that we are in good hands with Kalona Realty, Inc.!
We had tried selling our home on our own and found that the real estate market in Kalona really needs a familiar face that knows the community. We were living in another state and needed a trustworthy realtor to represent our home. Once we hired Tina as our realtor, she communicated very thoroughly from day one. She held multiple open houses and followed up with any interested buyers and/or their realtors. She was able to get us a solid offer within 7 weeks of listing our home. We could not be more thankful to all of your efforts Tina. Thank you again for helping us to get started on this next chapter in our lives!
Jason & Amy
We moved to Kalona from out of state. We found Kalona Realty, Inc. and Tina Hershberger pleasant and very easy to deal with. We got a thorough education in Kalona; it's attractions, and it's history. Kalona Realty, Inc. was very helpful, answered all our questions and left us feeling very satisfied with our transaction. We are glad we are in Kalona among great people!
-Bert & Nancy
"We were very satisfied with the professionalism we received from Tina Hershberger at Kalona Realty, Inc. She helped us find the home of our dreams. It was a struggle finding the perfect home, but Tina went above and beyond the call of duty. Tina orientated us to the area by pointing out local attractions and introducing us to many friendly people of the community. We couldn't be more pleased with the end result, thank you Tina and Kalona Realty, Inc. "
-Zeb & Sherry
"I listed our house with Tina and had a signed and accepted offer within 36 hours. Tina can provide a clear advantage to sellers in the Kalona area, she has years of first-hand knowledge selling homes in Kalona. Her focus and dedication to the Kalona area market gives her insight into how the market works which provides a clear advantage in pricing the home to sell that the 'out of towners' just don't have.
I was impressed with Tina's hard work and honest advice which ultimately resulted in selling our home quickly and at an acceptable price. If you are selling a home in Kalona, give Kalona Realty a call and allow them to take the stress out of selling!"
Mitch & Marcy
We have now purchased two homes through Tina as our family has continued to grow and the experience each time could not have been any better. Tina listens to to what is important to you as both a buyer and a seller and always has your best interests in mind. Our current home, which we love dearly, we actually were able to secure the purchase prior to the home even officially being listed on the market as Tina always seems to have her finger on the pulse and her clients in mind and was able to get us in the door as soon as she heard our home was going to come available. We would highly recommend Tina to anyone who is potentially looking at buying or selling a home in the area.
Tina was very thorough and knowledgeable throughout the entire browsing and buying process. She also went above and beyond following up with items that arose long after we moved in.
I have bought and sold several properties with Tina and Kalona Realty. She has served the Kalona and surrounding area for many years and does so very well. I would not hesitate to recommend her and Kalona Realty's services to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Tina is excellent at what she does, matching people with homes. We told her exactly what we wanted and she found us the perfect house within weeks. She didn't waste any of our time showing us homes that didn't fit our desires. She was extremely professional and quick to reply to texts/emails with any questions we had. We look forward to using her as our agent in the future!
We called Tina to find us a house that we could purchase to use as a rental property. We were on a time limit and she made herself available to show us every house that fit our needs & price range. She was honest and forthcoming about each property while honoring the seller also. We would gladly call her again should the need arise.
Tina is honest and forthright about property values and market trends in the transactions we have done together in the past. We have been pleased with the service we have received from Tina and her staff, and would highly recommend her.
Tina made selling our previous home and the purchase of the new home simple. Her knowledge of the real estate process and the market in Kalona and surrounding area is impressive.
This was not our first experience buying a home but it was our first experience selling! The purchase of our dream home was contingent on the sale of our then current property. Tina was with us every step of the way, explained everything to us in a plain, precise, and honest way -- a way we could understand what it was all about. Tina was always reachable, was quick to return calls, and "had our backs" all the way from start to finish.
One thing that impressed us the most was how Tina came "to the rescue"! We were out of the country right after our listing was published. A freak of nature brought torrential rain that taxed the town's storm drains and backed up water into basements never before troubled by water damage. Our home's lower level took on some water and with the help of family and neighbors and Tina, our home was saved, cleaned and dried in 24 hours!
In a troubled housing market, Tina kept our property (and many others) in the forefront and our property sold in just under 30 days! We highly recommend Tina Hershberger and Kalona Realty to everyone far and near! It will be the best decision you will make when buying or selling property. We guaranteed it.
Tina has sold 2 houses for me plus found me a home to purchase. She is very professional and very knowledgeable of the properties in our area. I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
I have worked with Tina for several years now. She has listed my subdivision lots and spec homes that I have built. She is very knowledgeable about the market in the area. I would recommend Tina and Kalona Realty to anyone that is buying or selling a home she will go above and beyond to get the job done.
We just bought our first home in North Liberty and it was a great experience. We looked for over a year and Tina was very patient with us and always went out of her way to make the trip to North Liberty to show us a potential home, even on short notice. She was always honest about any questions we had and was very knowledgeable about the market. I wouldn't go to anyone else if we are in the market again.
We are first time home buyers, completely new to the entire process, and Tina has explained every step of the way. She is professional, honest, and very easy to talk to. Without a doubt, I would recommend Tina to anyone!

When we decided to make a move to another city, we chose Tina Hershberger with Kalona Realty, Inc. to help us find a house and also sell our house. She responded quickly- she listened and knew exactly what we were looking for in a home. She was just as efficient in selling our home. With all the complexities involved in buying and selling real estate, it was a relief to have someone as professional as Tina handling all of the details for us.
-Paul & Lois
Hayley provided us with tons of information while searching for a new home. We would recommend Hayley to anyone who are looking to sell or buy a house.
As a first time home buyer I found the buying process to be quite confusing and stress filled. That's when I called Tina! She walked us through the buying process each step of the way, giving us valuable knowledge and advice. She was especially great when negotiating with the seller and the seller's real estate agent. If it wasn't for her we would never have found the home we live in now!
Listed our home in 2008 when we had decided to build outside of town. Had a couple open houses and a few showings, but was having no success. We then decided to rent for awhile hoping the housing market would turn around so we could sell. After out renter married and moved in 2014 we again listed with Tina and sold our home within a month.
Gaylord & Shirley Yoder
We were called the day the home came up for sale. Looked at the home within a few days, put an offer in. The offer was countered quickly and accepted quickly. All the papers were completed in a timely manner. We were moved in quickly, just like we wanted!
Jarred & Megan Holmes
Tina helped us buy our new home. She was very flexible in scheduling times to view the home when it was for sale. She answered our questions or found the answers to our questions quickly. She set up the inspections and had them completed within a few days. She is an agent you can trust to be honest and open with you.
My wife and I had a great experience working with the people at Kalona Realty, Inc.
Tina Hershberger went above and beyond for us when she sold our home. She is very knowledgeable, professional and patient. She was available at any hour of the day and was always happy to answer our questions. She made a couple of recommendations to us, we took her advice and our house was sold in less than a week after listing it! We couldn't be happier. Thank you, Kalona Realty, Inc.
