Great communication, always quick and responsive.

She does a wonderful job of laying out in detail each specific step needed throughout the buying process, and her willingness to get the best deal for her clients is unmatched!

Logan Scharf

As first time homeowners, we felt very overwhelmed with the buying process.

Especially in this crazy market! Cindy patiently guided us through the process, even when we changed our minds at the last minute. We could not have gotten such a great house without her help! Highly recommend Cindy.


I have worked with Cindy on her insurance needs.

She is great in communication, always responsive, and reliable. I'm sure she is great with her clients as well. It's been a pleasure to work with her!!

Sam Guill

Jeff did an amazing job for us.

He came in prior to listing our house and gave us advice on how to stage our home for sale and made the process of listing our house very easy. We sold in less than a day which was amazing and unexpected. All through the process he was excellent at communication and has been with us through the entire process. We truly appreciated all of his hard work.

Knowledgeable and willing to put in the work to make sure you’re happy with the transaction from start to finish.

Tenderfoot Properties LLC (Owner)

I was taught that follow up and follow through are the keys to success.

Cindy’s follow up and follow through was phenomenal. She took the onus of the entire process on her shoulders. She kept us informed of every move and she took care of every detail. We have never had a house buying experience as good as what Cindy provided. We swore we’d never move again, but I’m telling you if we do she will be our realtor. Excellent, excellent, excellent. We would recommend her in a heartbeat. Jere Murray and John Ross

Jere Murray

Cindy is incredible!

She was extremely attentive to both our needs and wants in a house. It became immediately obvious how passionate she is about her job. The very second we decided against a house, she listened to our feedback and jumped to apply it and find a list of houses that fit our new criteria. She did an excellent job of navigating us through the home buying process. She was able to clearly and concisely explain how quickly we would need to act when we found our perfect home in such a busy market. Despite houses being sold left and right around us, we never once felt pressured! We are extremely grateful with how patient she was with us, despite my chronic indecision. If anyone is looking for an agent, you will be in GREAT hands with Cindy!

Cameron Koch

Selecting Cindy to be our realtor for our Tiffin purchase was something we got right.

From the get-go, she was there to guide us with quick and reliable responses. She had all the right contacts and kept things moving efficiently. We felt comfortable asking her anything and still feel that way after the experience. It was a joy to work with Cindy Grabow and her positive assertiveness.

Dan and Patty Scheetz (Retired CCA teachers, farmers)

Jeff is a great realtor!

I had a ton of questions about the buying process and he answered everything so quickly, and if he didn't have answers he worked to find them. He's very personable and is awesome to work with. I will always recommend him!

Sara Schmidt

Cindy was so awesome to work with.

Cindy listened to our wish list and sent listings relentlessly. She was always available whenever we reached out to her. I cannot express what a pleasure it was to work with her. A 5 star rating isn’t high enough!

When we meet Jeff we were in a dire situation with our home buying process.

Jeff rectified the situation and maximized our home value. When looking for a realtor theirs no one better.

It's very reassuring that Jeff has your best interest in mind and with his years of experience you can be assured it's going to get done rite and on time. Would not want to work with anyone else.

Edwin Hubble (Home owner )

Cindy was incredibly helpful in helping me find a new home, and walking me through the steps of my first home purchase.

Caleb Koch

As a first time home buyer I really needed an agent with a lot of knowledge and experience and Cindy was exactly that.

She was incredibly prompt and flexible with my fiance and I's schedule. I couldn't have asked for better experience.

Brandin VerSteegh

Will Weibel was great to work with--very professional, pointed out everything needed to improve our property to make the sale and kept the process on track and as simple as possible for us, the sellers.

I highly recommend him!

Extremely attentive and exceptionally professional.

Cindy was professional, friendly and responsive.

She answered all of our questions in a timely way and did her best to keep us on track and moving forward in the process. She was also sensitive to the anxieties that come with moving through a home purchase. I highly recommend Cindy to be a partner in navigating a home purchase!

Gloria Witzberger

Alisha was a great resource.

She was resourceful, knowledgeable and courteous. She did an amazing job of qualifying our wants and searching for the right fit. I would recommend Alisha to anyone starting out buying their first home or someone that has purchased multiple homes before. I am positive you will enjoy the experience as we did.

Matt Hartman

Jeff Tackaberry helped my husband and I buy a new home and also sell our old home.

He worked at all hours of the day and night working on getting us what we wanted in both purchases. Very knowledgeable in the current market, despite our doubts he was able to sell our old home for much more than we expected. He is very sympathetic to the stressors of selling and buying a home and made every effort in making it as less stressful as possible. I will be recommending him and his associates to everyone I know and will definitely be going back to seek his help for the future.


My husband and I loved working with Jeff!

Jeff was very flexible and accommodating, and helped us to quickly write an offer on the home we purchased. Jeff helped us think through every step and provided helpful ideas along the way.

Penny Davidson

Cindy Grabow was a tireless worker on my behalf.

She brought in a 'speculator' BEFORE I even put my condo up for sale. While that person did not pan out, she then held an Open House, while I was out of town. The very FIRST party to view my property told Cindy that he wanted my place, and he was willing to agreed to all three three stipulations that I asked her to work for: my price, as is, and my need to stay here THREE months after the sale is final. Ms Grabow proceeded to get EVERYTHING in order, including a walk-through, with me, two days before the sale was final. I am so happy about her work that I have asked Cindy to help my girlfriend sell HER home next spring. Thank you, Cindy, for everything! David Schapira

David Schapira

Jeff Tackaberry has been our realtor more than once and each and every time he goes above and beyond to make sure we are comfortable and satisfied with what needs to happen to complete the process in buying or selling a home.

Jeff is very personable and genuinely cares about the feelings of the people he is serving. If anyone is looking for a person who has experience and puts forth the effort to get the job done, Jeff Tackaberry is the one to call!

Patricia Hubble

Jeff helped us to find our new home, he is so helpful and reply on time.

I recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking to buy home. I would rate him 5/5.

We worked with Cindy to purchase both our first and second homes.

Cindy is an invaluable partner when it comes to finding the property that is right for you and your family- she is very knowledgeable about the market, attentive to your needs, and a great advocate for her clients. We are really appreciative of her support through our home buying process!

Rosie V.

Cindy was wonderful to work with all the way through!

She helped us navigate a cross country move and all the complications that come with it. Lastly, she truly cared about our family and was so encouraging!

I was very impressed on her knowledge, skill level and Quick turnover on getting my family a home.

I Hope more people get to have the same wonderful experience my family had with Cindy!! Thank you

James Rich

I had a great experience using Alisha as my realtor in my home purchase.

Alisha was very helpful and responsive and made the whole process quite simple! She was very accommodating in setting up showings and made sure I was able to look at a house quickly. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Samuel Stecker

Cindy is absolutely AMAZING!

!! She not only was along with us for each step of the buying process but followed up and helped us get some things fixed even after closing. She is definitely someone who knows all the ins and outs and has all the knowledge and connections, we would highly recommend Cindy for any of your real estate needs!

Kendra Perkinson

Always at the end of the phone or email, very proactive and quick to respond.

Made the whole process of buying a house painless. Cindy is friendly with a good sense of humour, but also professional .

Stuart Chamberlayne

3 P's for Cindy!

Personable. Professional. Produces results. Cindy represented us in the purchase of our home and acted as a NextHome Navigator co-agent for the sale of our home of 35 years. She brought clarity to the process, clearly communicated with us through the progression of steps, and was a champion cheer leader and advocate along the way. My wife and I are in full agreement that we'd never venture out on our own for the purchase and sale of a home EVER. Cindy has been an awesome team member in representing us!

Dave Bousfield

We definitely recommend Casey.

Casey is professional and super responsive. We were more than satisfied with his guidance throughout the entire process from putting in an offer through closing. Casey is also very patient and willing to work with you as long as necessary to find the perfect place!

Eric and Jen

My husband and I love working with Jeff!

He helped us find and get our dream property in a extremely busy market! He has been so helpful throughout every stage of the process. We have worked with Jeff in both buying and selling a home and I would recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent!

Jenna Felsing

Jeff helped me with the build and purchase of my home a few years ago.

And recently when I needed to sell my mom's property I turned to Jeff. He was a great help with everything I needed to know. With David's hard work showing the property we sold it quickly.

Ila Sibley

I decided to buy a house in an extremely difficult housing market.

Jeff made every single part of the process SO EASY. After seeing a house that wasn’t a match, I was left with hope. Jeff would reassure me that the right house was there for me, we just had to find it. I couldn’t be happier with the experience I had with Jeff. He is a truly good person, and cares to learn about who you are and what you need, and is always looking out for your best interests. He will always receive my highest recommendation!

Justin Gorgone

Cindy stuck with us through many long months hunting for just the right new home.

When we finally found it she helped make the purchase process smooth and easy. Then she went to work selling our prior home, working every lead and keeping us informed every step of the way. We successfully closed on the old house about two months after listing. Cindy’s expertise combined with her follow up and follow through was on display the whole time. I will highly recommend her and NextHome to anyone looking to buy or sell.

John Ross

Jeff was very helpful with every single thing in the process of selling my home.

He was great at weighing pros and cons of each offer, he was great with setting up showings and communication. He thoroughly explains everything in every process. He’s very friendly and only wants the best for his clients!

Mackenzie Dawkins

Jeff has helped our family to find a home five years ago and recently helped us to sell it as we are relocating.

Jeff is the ultimate professional and provides a truly caring experience in working with clients. He has consistently gone above and beyond to make sure everything went well and fairly.

Tim Kuehl (Superintendent of Schools)

Will was fantastic to work with.

He was extremely patient with my wife and I, as it took us 2 months to find our home. Will is very knowledgeable in the IC, Coralville, and North Liberty areas. It also helps he essentially has the ability to perform minor inspections while touring homes, as he is quite the handyman. He knows a good home when he sees one, which provides confidence when making a very large purchase. My wife and I are extremely pleased with the results.

Jonathan Meyer


She was amazing…from the very beginning we had frequent communication. So many moving parts, overwhelming, but Cindy remained at our side, answering every single text or email. She gave us contacts for services and was knowledgeable about military home buying too! As a retired Army Veteran this was the best home buying experience. Words can’t describe how tirelessly she worked for us! Ultimately we ended up with an acreage we never thought was possible! Many, many thanks to Cindy!

Reba Siewert

Jeff has been a wonderful realtor to work with.

He was very knowledgeable about the current market and flexible with his time. Jeff is highly organized and made the process of buying a new home and selling our current home very easy. Additionally, Jeff kept in contact with us to ensure all questions were answered during the buying and selling process. I would recommend Jeff's services to anyone, you won't be disappointed!

Kristi Rotzoll

Enjoyable day of looking at houses - made a choice and he followed through with paper work, inspections and keeping me informed.

Appreciated his professionalism. (Made a new friend as well). A five star job in my book!

Norma Snyder Jones

Cindy was great to work with.

Very responsive during the whole process and felt great having her represent us during our first time home buying process.

Alexis Smith

Jeff was a very good realtor for me.

He was very quick to help find me something that would suit my needs and was there every step to talk with me and give me advice on things to be done or what I could look into for options. Would recommend him to anyone that needs to move and needs a realtor.

Isabella Gaeta

Jeff always does a great job finding the perfect fit for his clients.

He also knows the ins and outs of the business so he can answer any questions you might have. He can give you examples of situations he has seen to tell you what possibilities can happen in your situation. A great guy and a great realtor.

Bill Dawkins

Jeff is a true professional.

Experienced, knowledgeable, hard working, and quick to respond. Seven years ago, Jeff helped us purchase our home. We valued his services so much that, when it was time for us to move this year, we called on Jeff to help us sell it. He helped find us a buyer within three weeks of listing in a cooling fall market. Highly recommend Jeff and Next Home Navigator. Jeff cares about your home - but he cares about you more.

Thomas Williams

Cynthia and I went through 15-20 houses.

Many times they were listed as sold the day of. She is patient and determined, and will work night and day for you. She is the reason I now live in an amazing home.

Nick O’Hollearn

Cindy is the best!

From start to finish, we knew she had our best interests at heart. Her determination to find us a house we loved, and her attention to not only our needs but our wants when it came to our first home purchase, went above and beyond what we could have hoped for. We will definitely be recommending Cindy to anyone we know looking for a realtor in the future, and we are so thankful we got to navigate this process with her!

"Jeff was our realtor who sold our old home and helped purchase our new home. He was always available for questions, worked at all hours of the day and night to process needed paperwork for selling and purchasing our new home. He was very in tuned with the market prices and because of that we sold our home for much more than we expected. He is sympathetic to the stressors that home buyers and sellers go through which made the process less hectic for my husband and I. I would definitely seek his services again in the future and recommend him to anyone looking to buy and sell a house."

"Jeff is one in a million. He has helped us buy and sell multiple homes. He explains the process and is always available when you have questions. He made the process fairly pain free (considering the crazy house market in 2021). Glad to finally be in our downsized final home. He was knowledgeable about all aspects of buying and selling and also was realistic with us about the tough market this year."
