"My wife and I are both realtors in West Des Moines and we wanted to look for lake property and felt we needed guidance from a professional in the area. So we contacted Dave to show us around. We are so happy we did, he was so helpful and knowledgable about the properties we viewed as well as the association we were about to join. We did find our perfect cabin get away and would recommend Dave highly as your agent!!! " Barry and Connie
"We recently purchased a home on Lake Panorama with the assistance of Dave Wagler and the team at Lake Panorama Realty. Being first time lake home owners and new to this part of Iowa, we had a lot of questions and concerns. Dave was very helpful and honest in his answers and made us feel more comfortable with our decision. The whole team (Nancy and Laura included) went out of their way to make sure our experience was a very positive one. We have a partner and now a neighbor in Dave as we navigate the waters of lake living. We would recommend Dave and the team to anyone. " Nick and Jill
"After having heart health issues last summer and listing my home for sale I needed to keep stress levels down to a minimum. Dave and Laura understood my issues. Not only did they get my house sold to people who love it but they worked hard to make it as easy on me as possible. I had several showings but I could always count on them to give me a report as soon as possible (usually the same day) with encouraging comments. Once my place was sold, Dave was so helpful with all of the details that followed: He put me in contact with a couple of strong, young men to carry boxes and more boxes up the stairs and off to storage, then kept me advised during all of the details involved in closing. I’m certain there was a lot of work involved during this entire process that I wasn’t even aware of so I appreciated that very much. Thank you Dave and Laura." Donna
"Hi Dave and Gang! This is bitter/sweet for me to compose because frankly its great to have the family home sold and closed, but I am definitely going to miss you all and our weekly interaction. You all truly have become very good friends. Would I recommend you to others for the services you all provide in the real estate sector? I don’t think I need to answer this but if I do it’s a no brainer. That is a definite YES! My family presented many challenges, especially since we have 12 cousins, and spouses, with many of them living in all parts of the country. My cousins had multiple views and questions over this period when our home was being marketed for sell. Can you just imagine what that was like for Dave and his associates to manage on an on going basis and keep this train on the track? My hats off to you all for a job well done. Friends Always Gary " Gary
"“Dave and the Lake Panorama Realty Team worked diligently to sell both our lake home and an additional lake lot. They were very professional, and kept us informed on every step through the process. Dave made the process easy, and provided great advice and counsel throughout the sale. We would definitely use Lake Panorama Realty again, and would highly recommend them to our family and friends.” " Jim and Deb
"We loved working with Laura to buy our new cabin. She was very friendly and informative - with lots of fun backstories about various areas of the lake and surrounding community. She made the entire process stress-free, and the cabin is exactly what we had in mind when we started our house hunt!" Dustin and Jocelyn
"I would highly recommend Dave, Laura and the team at Lake Panorama Realty. They each took time to explain, educate and represent my best interests. They went out of their way to make it a great experience. They coordinated showings, contractors, inspections and gave practical advice at the right time. If you are wondering about who to use at the lake, I would pick them again" Rob
"We learned of Dave Wagler and Laura Kemble of Lake Panorama Realty upon receiving their photo card in our mail this past summer. We were impressed with their card and decided to call and discuss our treasured Lake Panorama home and property with them. From the first meeting on, we were very happy with their professionalism as well as their warmth and enthusiasm. The photos posted on the listing were attractive and the property description excellently written. Our home was listed for only a couple of weeks and then sold to the fourth party who looked at it. We highly recommend Dave and Laura as they worked hard and diligently to sell our lake home property. It was a unique property and they stepped up to the challenge of finding the right buyer. We were very pleased with the results. " David and Linda
"I had to sell my dad's house on Lake Panorama after he passed away last summer. Although that is never an easy job it is more difficult when you live out of state. There were also some issues with his home which greatly limited the buyer pool. I am very happy with how helpful Laura and Dave were in dealing with these unusual circumstances and also a seller who thought he knew more than he did. We did most of our communication by email and they did a good job of keeping me informed throughout he process. After the purchase agreement was signed they coordinated the inspections and the few needed repairs. The closing when smoothly with me never having to leave Texas. I am very happy with my decision to use Lake Panorama Realty and would definitely recommend them to anyone selling a home on lake. " Jim
"We purchased a lake home from Dave in 2014. We weren’t sure how much we would be able to use the home, as our family lives in Nebraska. It turns out we used it a lot, and we just love it at Lake Panorama. We decided to purchase another home, so we were hoping for a quick sale. We called Dave and Laura when we were down here on a weekend,, they came right out and visited with us and showed us a comparitve market analysis. Pricing the home right was very important to us, and Dave and Laura were spot on!! We had 5 showings within the first couple of weeks!! We listed our home on 9-28-15, and had an offer on 10-11-15, and closed on our home on 11-17-15, and we sold our home for very close to what we listed it for. Dave and Laura kept us informed on every step, helped line up some repairs needed, and made sure everything was on schedule and moving along. Their knowledge of the market out here was impressive! We are happy to recommend them whether you are buying or selling. We also want to thank Nancy in the office for helping with coordination and her help with our amazingly smooth transaction.

"Be it buying or selling real estate, it is our pleasure to recommend the Lake Panorama Realty (LPR) team, Dave, Laura, & Nancy. They were (are) exceptional real estate professionals. In our opinion, they are the go-to realtors for Panora and the Lake Panorama market. They consistently demonstrated a solid work ethic and knowledge of marketing our lake property. The LPR team frequently communicated updates, honestly shared their ideas, and delivered that quality service throughout our entire sales cycle. I say with confidence, that any current or potential client of LPR will receive the same professional service as we did! " Reuben and Karen
"We listed our home with Dave and Laura mid summer of 2015. We were going to downsize, so we used Dave to purchase a townhome, and also decided to list our lake home with Dave and Laura. Pricing the home right was a priority for us, and they came out to meet with us and went through the recent sales and also the homes on the lake that were in our price range. We felt good about the listing presentation, and that they had actually been in most of the homes they were talking about. We had good activity with showings when the listing went live. Our home was always show ready, but we were still living in the home. We were glad they were close by, as there were a few showings that were very short notice, and we were glad they could accommodate people looking for a lake home and show them in that same short time frame, we didn’t want to miss any opportunities to have our home shown. We were very happy with the amount of showings, that they gave feedback very quickly after the showings, and that we were able to get a buyer in a very reasonable amount of time. They kept us well informed, worked with us through the inspections, and made sure everything flowed well. Nancy was so helpful in making sure utilities were switched over, and all the other details that go along with selling a home. Dave went to Des Moines to pick up our proceeds check, and he promptly delivered it to our bank for deposit, talk about full service!! If you are thinking about listing your home, make sure you visit with Dave and Laura, they exceeded our expectations!! " Mark and Susan
"“My wife and I had a very specific vision in our mind of what we were looking for in a lake home. We contacted Laura Kemble as we felt she had the best pulse of the area, lived locally and would give us best advice on the dynamics of Lake Panarama. We found Laura to be extremely insightful while evaluating multiple homes willingly while also giving us tips to consider on each home—- both positive and negative. We ended up finding the perfect home for us and Laura is to be credited for the savvy negotiation she provided on our behalf.”—" Matt and Brandi
"Laura and the entire Lake Panorama Realty team were wonderful helping us navigate our way to becoming home owners at Lake Panorama. Both Laura and Dave went out of their way to show us properties, even on short notice. Laura put us in contact with all the right people at the right times to make our closing go smoothly. We couldn't be more excited to part of the Lake Panorama community. The entire town has been welcoming! Thank you for such a positive experience. " Tom and Celia
