REMAX Concepts Testimonials

Stephanie was amazing to work with!

I knew the amount I wanted to spend and we didn't go over it. She knew if I wouldn't like a certain home or not my style with just a first step in.


This is a review for Jenna Ellingsworth, I contacted Jenna Ellingsworth in regards to purchasing a home in Des Moines Iowa.

Jenna responded quickly to my request, My wife and I were shown various listings during a three month period of time . When called or emailed Jenna responded within a one day -period, if not sooner. I have purchased and sold four homes during my lifetime and only on other real estate agent provided close to the service we received from Jenna. I would refer my friends and anyone else I spoke with to jenna so they could receive the same fantastic service we received. She is a dedicated Agent and deserves recognition for her service. I believe Shane Torres is her employer but I have never spoken with him.


Shane went above and beyond what a realtor does.

He not only found us a house in just one day but negotiated for us to get into the house BEFORE we closed on it. He is professional, friendly, and an amazing person.

We built our home with cornerstone homes and working with Shane and Jenna made everything so much easier!

We were nervous to start the process due to family and friends talking about their bad experiences with building their homes. Shane and Jenna made the entire process so simple and everything moved along so smoothly. We truly enjoyed this process and everything came together perfectly. They were very quick to respond to all of our emails and phone calls and resolved any issues that came up. If we had to do it all over again we wouldn't change a thing. We feel pretty lucky that we are among the few that can say we truly enjoyed our building process and a lot of it is due to Shane and Jenna.


Shane Torres & Andrew Bruellman were excellent to work with, especially for me being a first time home-buyer, within one week I went from not knowing a thing about the process to buying my first home.

They took the pressure off and helped me find my dream home. They made me understand the fine print, made me know and feel that I wasn't getting a bad deal. Highly recommended to anyone.

Shane and staff were always quick to respond to questions to help in the short sale process.

I appreciated their knowledge of the drawn out process with the bank. We are grateful to be able to move on as a family without this home to worry about anymore. Thanks Shane and team!


The Torres Team was excellent!

Our realtor was very hands-on, and went great extra mile as far as helping us get documents in order, that the sale of our home could proceed in a timely fashion. They were also great at explaining the process as we went along, and we would highly recommend them if you are looking to buy or sell a home!

I worked with Andrew and he has been great to work with!

Would highly recommend him to anyone! He is a strength of the Torres team. He helped me negotiate, found favorable terms, offered referrals to help me with the process. Was a great experience.

A little over a year ago, my wife & I needed to look into options to sell our home.

This was our 1st home & neither one of us had much knowledge in terms of avenues to explore. With the help of Shane & Theresa, we have sold our home in a short sale. I was impressed with the quick responses to our questions and they were a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend Shane & his staff to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.


Shane Wrage as a friend and Realtor helped me tremendously.

I haven't made too many home purchases, so he made it really easy for me. He was pro active in finding me listings in the local area, meeting my exact criteria of what I was looking for. He showed me multiple homes, and most on a short notice. He suggested I take a 2nd look at the home that I thought I wanted to make an offer on and it was a great idea, I felt that it was truly the home we wanted. The offer process and digital signing of documents was very seamless and very easy to use. He has done a great job for me and I would recommend him to anyone in the future. I may not live in this house for very long, and I will likely be back in the area in the future looking for another home and he will be the first person I call. Thank you for making this as easy as possible on me.

I had an excellent experience with the Shane Torres Team!

My realtor, Andrew Bruellman, went above and beyond to find the house I wanted. I trusted him because he pointed out things to think about in my purchase never, ever pressured me and explained everything along the process. He was always on time, always responded to my calls and he made me feel like I was his only client, professional in every way. I would highly recommend Andrew and the Torres Team!

I was limited in my knowledge of the housing market.

I wanted to give up looking for a home. I made contact with ReMax and things changed. They listened to my needs and went to work and found the perfect home for me. They guided me through the process of pre-approval, directing me to resources for everything I needed to complete the process. I would recommend ReMax to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I really felt like they cared about what i wanted and made it happen! My Husband and I are enjoying our home!


I continue to be impressed by the depth of knowledge of central Iowa real estate that Shane and his team possess.

They are professional in every sense. Shane is definitely the one to call if you are planning to buy or sell in this area.


We contacted Shane Sept of last yr because of a home we saw on zillow.

..we never expected anything out of it as our home wasn't even ready to be put on the market yet but with his help we were able to sell our home very quickly...we later came to find out the home we had started all this for sold and got very discouraged but he was there and assured us he would find us a home we loved after lots of searching we found a home and moved in November 2016, although negotiating on both ends got a little stressful at times we were very overall content with the services and his responsiveness to all our concerns.... we would be sure to recommend him to any one that is looking to sell or buy with remax and were overall happy with our experiences even after all the hiccups that came along the way...thank you torres team!


We used Shane to BOTH list and sell our current home as well as to purchase a lot and build with Cornerstone homes.

Shane made the process VERY STRESS FREE from beginning to end. Communication was impeccable, sold our house in a timely manner and at the price he suggested we list it for. The ENTIRE "Torres Team" stayed on top of all paperwork, home showings, home pictures, etc. The entire team worked very well together and appeared seamless. I would recommend Shane and his team to anyone looking to buy, sell, or build!!
