What Clients Say About Alicia Messer

“Alicia Messer was by far the best realtor we have ever worked with, and we have bought and sold more than a few homes during the last 45 years. She was beyond helpful and provided valuable insight in the real estate codes/rules in Iowa compared to other states where we have owned real estate.”

— Ken And Dianne, Buyer

“Alicia is a friend and I could be biased to write this review. However, she is one of the best human I have met and definitely wouldn't find better than her to buy or sell a house.”

— Aref Bin Abdulhak, Seller

“Alicia was absolutely amazing as our realtor! As we are not from Iowa City, she was a huge help with helping us figure out which neighborhoods would be best for our needs. She has amazing attention to detail and was on top of every part of the process from start to finish with all houses we toured and put in offers on. She went out of her way to made sure we had all information needed and was always available to answer any questions we had. As we were coming from out of town, Alicia was extremely flexible with our last minute scheduling of showings, and we would have trusted her opinion on any house if we were unable to see it in person. We highly, highly recommend Alicia to anybody looking to buy or sell their house in the area, and we will definitely be using her in the future to list our house! 10/10 stars, you will not regret picking Alicia!”

— Jeff Tscherter & Kelsey Schwartz, Buyer

Urban or Acres?

Urban with a dash of acres. I love being in the city surrounded by activity and people. But when I need a slow down, you’ll find me hiking on the trails around the community or kayaking at Lake Macbride or Terry Trueblood.

  • Favorite Iowa City Establishment: Pagliai’s, Coralville Reservoir, Ped Mall, Reds
  • Best Part of Iowa: Definitely the people! After all, we are ‘Iowa Nice.’
