Chuck went the extra mile helping us with things at the house. I am sure the buyers appreciated this as much as we did! He helped out in ways that I did not know a Realtor would! He was always reassuring and took time to answer questions through the whole process. Since we live out of town, it was nice to have Chuck checking on the house and addressing any issues as they came up.

Being the executor of my Mother's Estate, it waqs up to me to get her home sold. Having never done anything like this beofre, I took the advise of my daughter and contacted Abbott Realty.

Kathy was very easy to talk to. She made me feel confident in this next step. Within several days she had received some offers. After talking it over with my brothers, we chose one of the offers and signed the agreement. Through everything, Kathy kept me informed & explained every step.

Kathy's professionalism & caring attitude helped me deal with this stressful time.

We chose Kathyas our agent when we were selling a home in Hampton. She was very professional & always easy to get ahold of if we had any questions for her. She found us multiple buyers in a short period of time. We were very happy with our experience at Abbott Realty!

We purchased a home in October 2016 from Abbott Realty in Hampton. Chuck Svendsen was our agent and he endured many telephone calls through our buying proess and was always gracious and very helpful. He was very professional and we were very happy to have Chuck Svendsen and Abbott Realty as our Realtors. Thank you Abbott Realty!

My family worked with Kathy and Chuck early this year to sell my dad's house. We listed thehouse in December (not the best time of year in Iowa). However, by tht eend of March we had an offer and by the end of May all was done. They took care of everything! Being the executor of my dad's estere there was a lot of paperwork to complete. Kathy made it so easy by coming to my office for my convenience. I would definitely use Abbott Realty for future real estate business.

The service performance of Abbott Realty has been awesome! It just doesn't get any better! I put my home up for sale on a Thursday and it was sold on Saturday!! Thank you so much Kathy and Chuck!!! I like my new home very much!

I highly recommend Kathy and her staff at Abbott Realty if you are considering buying or selling your home. Last year in the Spring I desperatley needed to sell my home, an acreage in rural Hampton, due to health issues. I listed it with Abbott Realty and Kathy and her staff went to work using every tool at their disposal to make it happen. Then, with the help of an internet add which they had engineered, they were able to find a buyer by September. Kathy spent hours completing the paper work to enable my closing at the end of September. I was not able to attend but everything went wmoothly! The buyer was pleased and Kathy deposited my check in the bank! That's not all, she personally moved some items that still remained at my property and put them in her storage for me so that the new buyer could take possession. Kathy and her staff truly go "above and beyond'!



My brother and I contracted Kathy Stanbrough of Abbott Realty when we made the decision to sell the acreage of our parents' farm.  We couldn't have made a better choice.  Because we both lived out of the area, we needed to have someone that we could trust to get us the best deal possible.  She did that and more.  We ran into some problems, as happens in most real estate deals, and she handled them quickly and professionally.  In the end, both we and the buyers were satisfied with the outcome.  I highly recommend Kathy to anyone who needs a competent realtor who is willing to go above and beyond for her clients.

I decided to start a new chapter in my life and purchase a home.  I got tired of renting and throwing my money away.  I wanted to have something to call my own.  I heard it was a buyer's market right now with the low interest rates so I proceeded forward.  I have always heard good things about Kathy and her agency so I found a house I wanted and contacted her right away.  She was very professional and made me feel very confident and positive during the process.  Buying a house is a big step in a person's life and it can be somewhat scary and hectic, but with Kathy, it wasn't at all.  It went very smooth.  Kathy would take the time to contact me and let me know where we were at in the process and what the next step was.  I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone for buying/selling a house.  Thank you so much Kathy! I love my new house



We want to express our gratitude to Kathy Stanbrough (Abbott Realty) in Hampton for her hard work, kindness, and wonderful sales presentation.  She exemplified how good a small town realty can be.

In the last few years Abbott Realty has helped us on 3 different properties. They were always up front with us. They also handled everything for us. We would recommend Abbott Realty to anyone.

LeRoy & Judy J.

SOLD in six days! We had two offers in that time frame, one of them being for the full list price. We worked with Kathy for the purchase and sale of this home and she kept us promptly informed on showings, negotiations, and also request from the buyer. I would recommend Kathy to anyone who is moving into, around or out of Hampton.

Lloyd & Mahna R.

Kathy was very professional apart from she acted very polite at all times she went our of her way to find me a home in my budget.

Lori F.

Thank you, Kathy, for helping us sell our house. The process went smoothly with your expertice and knowledge -- from taking pictures for the website to negotiations to helping us through the paperwork.

Thanks again.

Kathy & John N.

We had bought a house in 1997 and enjoyed living in it. But after several years decided we needed a smaller house. We found one and decided to sell.

We tried selling it ourselves but had no results. We knew Kathy and decided to let her try to sell it.

It took time and we were thinking about taking it off the market when she called and said she had a cash buyer.

We took the offer and between Kathy and her staff things went swiftly. We were well pleased with her.

If we should ever need a realestate agent again we would choose her.

It was a real pleasure to work with you on our real estate transaction. We really felt you had our back when it came to negotiations. Of course we plan to use you again if another property should present itself. Than you so much for taking the time to answer our questions and making arrangements to come to us for the closing. You are truly dedicated agent and we will refer you to our friends. Again, thank you for your assistance in helping us purchase our rental property.

Melody K.

Was great working with Kathy on the purchase of our new place. She got our questions answered in a timely matter. Things really went smooth. Again, it was great working with Kathy!

Ted & Kathy W.

Thank you so much for the professional handling of the sale of our Dows home.  Holly and I have been involved in approximately thirty real estate transactions, and feel your service ranked at the top. It was obvious you expended great effort to provide extensive comparable values for us to determine the asking price. The advertising portrayed the property so that a potential buyer knew what the home had to offer. With pride, we reviewed the ads with friends and relatives, receiving only positive comments. Feedback of showings was always very prompt and provided us with a secure feeling we were represented by the best. When an offer was presented we had confidence the negotiations and details of the transaction were fair and represented our interest foremost. Summarizing: We have yet to find a superior agency to Abbott Realty.

Steve & Holly C.

Thank you so much, you made the sale of my home go so smoothly and quick. It sold in less than two months. I appreciate how you always kept me informed on how things were going. The website is a great way to let people all over the county see our homes, not just local! It was a pleasure to work with you. So I thank you again!

Sharon M.

Our experience with working with Kathy was a very pleasant one. We had been looking and frankly had looked with others in the community and found that Kathy is right at the top with her professional service working with our tough schedule as humanly possible as she could. She offered to fax any papers to our out of town lender and made many calls to make sure things were going smoothly. We received many comments on how quickly things moved along. The entire process from the time we first viewed the property until we were moved in was only about 60 days. Great job!

Tim and Sue M.

I am writing this recommendation in regard to the selling of my home in Hampton, Iowa. I contacted Kathy Stanbrough at Abbott Realty in Hampton in late January. She had the contract ready by February 1, 2012. She worked hard to sell the home and did. The closing date was march 30, 2012. All told, approximately 2 months to complete the transaction. I highly recommend Kathy as she keeps you informed and does everything she possibly can to get your property sold in a timely manner.

Evelyn M.

This isn't much, but we again wanted to say thank you for all your time and efforts in making our move to Hampton smooth and efficient. We truly appreciate all you have done for us! Enjoy the rest of your summer! Thanks again!

Trent & Angela G.

Thanks for making the home buying experience so Painless!
