⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "It’s our pleasure to recommend Oldfather Group to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home. Being new to the area and after having an extremely frustrating experience with another reality group in the area, we decided to give Dustin and the Oldfather Group a try. From helping us decide on a listing price, to prescreening buyers, through all the negotiations, and then handling all the legal issues and paperwork our overall experience was excellent. Attention to detail was superb as well as their quick response time to all our questions and concerns. We had an administrative assistant assigned specifically to our contract which helped a lot. Consequently, the settlement was a breeze. Over the years we have used many Realtors and unquestionably the Oldfather Group was the best." -Allen Sangree
