Ryan is extremely timely and efficient!

His approachable personality, knowledge, and skill set lends itself to a remarkable home buying experience! As a first time home buyer, I'd highly recommend Ryan to anyone!

Lindsay Reynolds Roisen

My husband and I have bought and sold numerous houses previously but have not had a great experience with real estate agents so we were skeptical about contacting another.

After doing a little research and asking around locally, Ryan came highly recommended by a friend in the Quad Cities area and we could not have been more pleasantly surprised by the "process" this time around. It has been a home buying experience like we have never had. Ryan is an agent that works full time to achieve not only his own goals but to assure that his customers goals are met as well. When we first contacted him regarding our search, he took a lot of time helping us identify exactly what it is we were looking for, listened to our concerns about budget, neighborhoods, schools, etc. and never once discounted our goals or tried to convince us to purchase a home that wasn't just right! (this was really important because we were purchasing from out of state) We were looking for something very specific in a home and he has been diligent about helping us find just the right house. Ryan is professional, honest, concerned, easy to contact and an all around pleasure to do business with. I also would like to mention that in our previous experience with agents, communication has been a BIG issue particularly when selling as well as buying but to our surprise, Ryan has been "Johnny on the spot" when we have needed to communicate, quickly returning emails, texts and calls. When we go to flip our next property (my husband renovates and restores old homes) there is no doubt Ryan will be our listing agent as well. Thank You Ryan for an awesome home buying experience. Kudos to you for a job well done!

Danielle Jones

Ryan made the process of selling as easy as possible!

He was easy to communicate with and overall made the process as enjoyable.

Ashley Matsuo

Ryan was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and personable.

We dealt with an agent once before in Memphis, TN when we were in the "inquiry stage," and she didn't compare to the assistance we received from Ryan. If we ever need real estate assistance again, we will definitely be interested in using Ryan. Thanks for the great service!

Ethan and Leana Owen

Ryan made selling a house so easy for me.

He did all the hard work. Having lived in the home for many years with all the memories, he even gave emotional support when I needed it. I cannot say enough good things about him and the service he offers!

Heidi Vahrenwald

Beth, we are now clear to close!

I just have to take a moment to thank those people working diligently behind the scenes to make this process painless. My Realtor, Ryan VanDaele, has been patient with me for almost a year now. He saw me at my absolute worst in 2010, literally hanging onto life by a thread. That was the last time he saw me until some random coincidence brought us back together for this exciting chapter of my life. And, it was he, who referred me to my incredible mortgage loan officer, Cissi Leinonen, who just so happens to be a friend that's also seen me during some extremely difficult years. If those aren't "God Things," I don't know what is!!

Beth Lorenzen

Highly recommend using Altered Realty!

Ryan knows the market in the Quad Cities very well. Our home was listed, sold and closed on within 60 days We had 7 showings and 2 offers within a week. Can't ask for a better REALTOR to do business with. Altered Realty has sold homes for friends and families for years and can even stage the home you are selling. His photographer takes excellent photos for the listing and his videos are great! Ryan helps to make the process easy peasy! Many thanks for all he has done for us! I'd recommend Altered Realty to anyone looking to sell their home in the Quad Cities !!

Tab McDonough & Denise Doss

Our family recently decided to make a bold move out of the Midwest to the East coast.

We had just purchased a home there to be built and therefore, needed to sell our home in Davenport quickly. Ryan had a clear understanding of our needs and hit the ground running right away. We were so impressed with his knowledge, marketing tactics, and passion for the job. He created a beautiful video of our home and sent a talented, professional photographer to help create the listing. By the time it had posted, Ryan had already lined up multiple showings and sold our house within 24 hours! We will always recommend Ryan Van Daele to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home! He is top notch!

Carissa Higley

Very thorough.

Attuned to the market and great ideas.

Jim Morgan

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Ryan VanDaele.

I had my home listed with another realtor for 150 days with no offers and extremely limited showings. When I wanted to cancel my contract, I was told that there was nothing another Realtor could do for me other than lower the price. That was far from the truth. Ryan invests himself into your property/home. He will make sure your home is properly staged and photographed. His networking and use of social media is outstanding. Other Realtors will have you opt out of social media but this is a terrible mistake. When used properly, social media can sell your home quickly. Ryan sold my home in 1 week for my asking price. I am extremely thankful for his dedication to real estate and his obvious love for what he does.

Amy Vahrenwald

Thank you Ryan.

Ryan listed my Father's home and we had a buyer the very first day it was on the market. We closed within a month. I really appreciated Ryan's professional advice and support through the entire process. I was impressed with Ryan's knowledge and enthusiasm and I am convinced these qualities made this such a positive experience. Again, Thank you!!!

Gail Hess

Very motivated and active in the market and is not pushy.

He came by almost 10 months prior to listing the house and was patient for me to reach out to him when I was ready to list. During that 10 months he emailed only one or two times. I appreciated this. He answered all of my many, many questions. Creative signage ideas that caught A LOT of traffic attention!

Tia Sellevold

Ryan went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our new home.

He explained all the ins and outs of the mortgage process in terms that could be understand and found answers to all the crazy questions we had. We would highly recommend Ryan!!!!

Sue Scudder

I don’t know where to start.

We had another realtor with another company representing us. Needless to say they had 6 months to sell our house and didn’t get the job done. We had very little traffic. We kept being told that we were competing with new construction homes and they were unable to get people to even look at our home due to fact there were so many in our price range. Well enter Ryan Van Daele. He sought us out, made an amazing video of our home and started marketing it that same day. Ryan went above and beyond what we expected with his advertising, marketing, and communication. Ryan is dedicated to his job and cares about his clients’ needs. With Ryan’s strategy he was able to sell our home within 22 days! Yes, 22 days! His dedication and expertise yielded multiple offers, a bidding war and an offer for more than our asking price. If you are looking to buy or sell your home I highly recommend using Ryan Van Daele! Trust me, he will get the job done!

Stephen Aitken

We had a great experience having Ryan as our realtor as we searched for our first home in the Quad Cities.

Ryan is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Quad Cities. He is well versed and up to date on all the real estate rules and regulations, so when it comes time to start all the paperwork associated with your offer and your home purchase completed everything goes really smoothly. If you’re buying in one of the hotter areas of the market in the Quad Cities, Ryan is great to have on your team as he works quickly and often times late into the evening to get your offer submitted. Once you’re ready to buy, he’s got great recommendations for folks to help you with the other aspects of the purchase such as your mortgage and home inspection. We can’t recommend Ryan highly enough. Thank you Ryan for making the home buying experience pain free! The next time we are looking to buy or sell, we’ll be calling Ryan!

Pam Kostka

When you find someone that does a great job you tend to go back.

.. Just over two years ago Ryan helped me find my condo. It was perfect and he helped me the whole way through purchasing it. My career took me to a new town last month and I sadly needed to sell my lovely home! I thought of Ryan immediately! He responded to my message quickly (even though he was on vacation) and starting the process as soon as he returned. Within days my home was on the market and sold in 24 hours! Ryan made the whole process of listing it, having showings, inspections and the sale so easy! I would recommend Ryan and Altered Realty to everyone I know! I appreciated all his help!

Megan den Blaauwen

We were very satisfied with the service.

Ryan did an excellent job, both in the buying and selling of our properties.

Janice and Don Bybee

We were told we had 6 weeks to sell our house and be in Long Island.

Our 5 year plan turned into a two year plan. We knew Ryan was a neighborhood guy, and figured he’d be our best bet. We are not from here, so have no long relationships with realtors, family, friends and so on. Ryan was amazingly organized, had an air tight system that had everything covered all of the time! We got an offer in the first week and we became homeless in about six weeks! Lol! Way better than we expected. Ryan is is the guy. I would absolutely recommend him if you want your house sold or are looking to buy.

Chris Jehlen

Cannot Thank this guy enough!

!! Our move has been stressful because it happened so quick; however Ryan made the process of selling a home stress free. He sold our home in 10 days, always kept us up to date, worked hard (went out of his way to come over to sign relocation papers), cares about his clients, and is so dedicated to his job! If anyone is looking to buy or sell I recommend using Ryan VanDaele!! If not you're missing out! Thanks again your AWESOME!

Kelsey Creen Oldaker

Ryan is an amazing Real Estate Agent.

He is so easy to get along with, listens to your needs and then assesses the situation accordingly. He is very driven, and adds a certain amount of creativity to the mix, which keeps things upbeat and fun. If you are looking to buy or sell, you can't go wrong by giving Ryan a call.

Karen Bishop

Ryan is super helpful and friendly!

He’s got all the tech too! Very cool! Thanks Ryan!

Andrea Ellis

Ryan and his team are top notch professionals.

They handled the sale of our property quickly. Ryan made the process completely painless and easy. The discussions were clear, and in plain English. We would recommend the Altered Realty team to handle the sale of any real estate. We definitely will use Ryan for all future real estate transactions.

Mike Curran

Eric and I would like to let you know how grateful we are for all your help throughout our home buying experience.

You listened to all our needs and you were able to help us find a home with everything we were looking for in a short amount of time. Your expert technology skills allowed us to receive, review, and sign documents even though we were located an hour away from your office. We appreciate all you have done for us and would recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Quad Cities area.

Eric and PJ Low

Ryan provided a unique, out-of-the box solution to finding a property that fit my needs.

Not only would I use Ryan again, but highly recommend him for anyone with a real estate need.

Andy Seynaeve

Ryan was fantastic helping me sell a home and lot.

He communicates clearly and gets the job done quickly and efficiently. His use of technology kept me up to date throughout the entire process. I could not have been more happy with Ryan. Great job!

Tory Lucas

Ryan did a great job for us!

We bought a house within two weeks of meeting with him and he sold our old house within 2 weeks of it being in the market! Very knowledgeable of market conditions and great communication!

Emily McDaniel

Ryan helped my parents purchase a new construction home, and since they don't have Facebook, I thought I'd leave a review for them!

I met Ryan on numerous occasions, and have also heard only wonderful things about him and his service. My parents are absolutely thrilled with their new home, and say that their move could not have been easier. Ryan was very kind, honest, and knowledgeable, not to mention fun to work with. He was also VERY good about getting back to my parents' questions and concerns quickly. Though I don't see them moving again for a very long time (as they are so happy with their new home), if they ever wanted to, they would 110% use Ryan again.

Alissa Morrison

My husband & I recently purchased our 1st home.

We worked with Ryan throughout the process these past few months, and it has been a great experience! He was always available whenever we called/texted or had concerns. He was very patient with us throughout the buying experience, and now we own a wonderful new home. HIGHLY recommend him.

Lakyn Glenn

Ryan is an amazing realtor.

He came to our house and talked with us about what we were looking for and expecting when selling our home. He was very honest and blunt throughout the entire process. We had been having a lot of issues with other realtors, and Ryan was the complete opposite. He is a very knowledgeable person, he is there for the seller 100%. He listens, very personable, friendly, and makes you feel like you have been great friends for a long time. He went out of his way to sell our home. He was hosting open houses almost every weekend. If someone came to look at our house he would give us feedback within a very reasonable amount of time. He was very honest when it came to pricing, fixing up issues with the house, offers and much more. We honestly had wish we would of found him when we were looking to buy a house, we would of rather gone through him to buy a home. I would recommend Ryan to all my family, close friends, and co-workers. Ryan made sure to include both my husband and I in conversation, as that was important to me. Ryan was honestly a blessing. As long as he is in business, he will be the only realtor we will ever use again. We are very thankful to have met him, and have the opportunity to work with him.

Adrienne Stark

I worked with Ryan to sell my home and then purchase my new home.

I can’t say enough positive things about both transactions. He was patient, knowledgeable and always available. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended.

David Hughes

I know you guys eventually follow-up with customers, but I wanted to jump the gun and let Ryan know what I thought.

He got placed into a situation with some unexpected foibles with the house and me stuck 4+ hours away. He's been proactive getting everything to me and making it so that I didn't have to disrupt my work schedule by giving me e-documents, etc to fill out. As I noted, I dreaded selling the house and figured it would be the most stressful part of the estate. Ryan promised he'd take care of things--and he did. I appreciate that integrity a great deal and I'm very happy to have dealt with him.

Jim Dietz

Ryan is definitely the best!

He has helped us twice with both buying and selling! He makes a very complicated and stressful experience as easy and simple as possible!

Shelley Shafer

We didn't plan on Santa bringing us a new home this year but he did!

Shout out to Ryan VanDaele, our favorite realtor! If you're in the market to buy contact him!

Larry Owens

Ryan continually impresses me with his passion and dedication to finding people beautiful homes or making a seller’s stress level disappear !

There are reasons why people are drawn in certain directions in their career paths, and he is definitely made for making people’s dreams come true!

Teresa Martens Gonzalez

Ryan was helpful as I relocated to the Quad Cities.

He was responsive to my questions. When I bought a condo in the community, Ryan served me well as my Realtor. The process was seamless and stress free.

Jay Willsher

For those that know me well I’m always ready for the next adventure.

Many thanks to Ryan for helping me with the adventure of finding my first home! I couldn’t have done it without him. It was a pleasure working with you! If anyone is looking for their first home or another home - he’s the guy!

Sara Schreck

Over this past month with some help of so many important people I have been able to do something amazing!

Today I bought my own home! I can’t believe my dreams of come true! Thank you Ryan VanDaele.

Megan den Blaauwen

In June of 2015 my wife and I were married.

It was a dream to own our own home, a dream that always seemed next to impossible. There are so many things that come along with buying a house, not to mention all of the obstacles that we were unaware of. It just seemed so intimidating and out of reach. One day we were out with some friends who had just moved here from Alabama. They were a young couple like us who had just married and bought a house. They told us about how easy the process was. I was quite impressed with them because their version of buying a house was contrary to the type of experiences I’ve heard from almost everyone else. We kept talking and I realized that it wasn’t just good luck that they had such a great experience. It was the team of people they had fighting for them that made the biggest purchase of their life such a great experience. My first call was to a finance guy, (Dan Schimanski) who put me in touch with Ryan VanDaele. One of my first impressions was, “This guy drives a Prius”. LOL. That might show you how hard I can be to please with my pre-judgments. I had talked with a couple of realtors in the past and they were nothing like Ryan. You may not be able to see it at first with most realtors, but the majority of them really just want to close a sale. I can’t blame them, we all have to eat, but I want better than that for myself. I want someone who is going to be the best for me. I don’t want someone who is just good, or ok, or whatever. I want the best possible realtor. I want a realtor to find the precious gem of a house that is hidden away somewhere, and then I want him to basically steal it for me by getting me the best possible price. I want a guy who knows what I should be cautious and leery of when buying a house. Ryan did such an amazing job. He was up front with us about everything and open with us about the process. He answered all of our questions and was very patient with us. One Saturday we looked at over 15 homes (it took us all day and it was in the middle of January, VERY cold) and I finally understood why he had to buy a Prius. It was because people like me had him driving all over the Quad Cities. When you divide the money he made by the hours he worked, he couldn’t have made much. I appreciate his patience so much! What it really comes down to is money. Ryan was very professional with the way he put in the offer and the way he presented it to the sellers. He made them understand our side and we came to a price that really benefited us and far exceeded our expectations. He was excellent at getting us the deal he did and I love bragging about it to people when I tell them the story of us buying our first house. It really is a pleasure writing this recommendation. Ryan is not just a great guy he is a fighter who will fight hard for you. I guarantee you will not go with a different realtor after buying with Mr. VanDaele. Thank you, Ryan, for making the dream of our first house such a fun and pleasant reality.
