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.

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.
