Jeff + Nicole

My husband and I worked with Rachel and Molly for several months while searching for our first home. From the very beginning, they were extremely welcoming and made us feel at ease. They are both very knowledgeable and we never felt like they were there just to make a sale. They truly supported us through the whole process and wanted us to find exactly what we were looking for – and we did! We would both highly recommend them for anyone looking for a home in this area!

Great to work with

Molly was great to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area. She not only helped us find and purchase a wonderful new home but also sold our previous home in less than one day.

Molly made it simple and easy

Buying my first home was intimidating but Molly was there every step of the way, she made it simple and easy. The best part was Molly was always working for us, she listened to our needs and wants in a house and let us take our time finding the perfect place. I loved that when going through a home she was there to answer questions but let my husband and I have space to discuss and look on our own. Molly never pressured us or made me feel silly for calling or emailing with endless questions. She knows the market and I trust her 100%.


Rachel and Molly go above and beyond in everything they do

Rachel and Molly go above and beyond in everything they do. They are very professional, knowledgeable, and communicative. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, I would HIGHLY recommend them! You will not be disappointed!

Iowa City

Molly made us feel at ease

Having decided it was time to look at buying our first home, my fiancé and I contacted Molly to assist us in the process. Molly quickly made us feel at ease with the whole process and took lots of time to show us many different homes until we found the one for us. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Molly and feel very lucky to have had her as our realtor. We will definitely be contacting her again when it comes time to sell our current home and look for our next home.

Rachel and Molly provided us with very professional, personalized service

Rachel and Molly provided us with very professional, personalized service. They were extremely responsive and so helpful as we sold this property living out of state. From the moment we first met to the finalized sale, they were so helpful every step along the way. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell!


Molly was nothing short of amazing

Molly was nothing short of amazing. She had excellent advice, was calm during an issue with a potential buyer, and even helped us find vendors to do repairs. As an out of town seller, she was the on site contact for the contractors. She made sure every detail was seen through to the end. We would only use her in the future for any home buying/selling needs.

I could always count on Rachel

Rachel went above and beyond assisting us in our home purchase. Her guidance and responsiveness helped us find and close in an extremely short timeframe. I could always count on Rachel and trust her expertise throughout the whole process, start to finish. She was extremely personable and professional. I am so grateful we were able to work with Rachel and her team.

Molly’s experience is priceless

Molly’s experience is priceless and her kindness is so soothing during the whole searching and buying process. Molly is a good soul. I cannot recommend her highly enough, truly, if you’re reading this and wondering whether to give her a call, just do it!

J Van Tiem

Highly recommend

Molly is a great realtor! She made our home buying experience so easy! Molly also participates in a program called homes for heroes which meant a lot to us. We will definitely be using Molly again! We highly recommend her!

Flawless buying experience

The home buying process with Molly Trimble well exceeded all of our expectations. Molly was available, accommodating, and perfectly professional from the very first phone call. She knows the Iowa City area and helped tremendously with our move from another state. Molly is the realtor that goes above and beyond to ensure her clients are well taken care of, and she puts so many personal touches on the entire process. We can’t thank Molly and team enough for the flawless buying experience!


My place sold in under a month!

Rachel assisted me in selling my home last year and made it very easy. On our first meeting, Rachel came to my place and gave me pointers and recommendations on what I should fix, touch up, replace or remove prior to taking pictures and listing. Once I had completed my checklist and was ready for listing, Rachel helped me determine the right listing price. My place sold in under a month and I think that has a lot to do with Rachel determining the right price. After everything, I had a great experience working with Rachel. She made the process easy and painless.

M Kretzschmar
North Liberty

Patient, professional realtor

Molly Trimble is a patient professional realtor. With her help, we turned a situation in which we probably would have lost money to a slight profit. We have sold homes before and she is the best realtor we have worked with. She worked very hard to sell our house and protected our interests. We highly recommend her.

Iowa City

Rachel was quick to respond

Rachel was great to work with! She was always quick to respond and readily available. Rachel gave great insight and was able to guide us throughout our home buying process. She is also super kind and sweet and was easy to get along with. I highly recommend working with her!

H Crawford

I would never work with anyone else!

We worked with Rachel and Molly when we purchased our home, and then a number of years later we took an out of town job offer and used them to sell it. Rachel was my main contact, she was so easy to work with- gave us her honest opinion, worked through any special circumstances we had. Was extremely responsive as soon as offers came in or we had offers to make. We were first time home buyers and then first time sellers so appreciated her patience and guidance as we asked lots of questions. She also gave us great advice to make our home sell fast at a great price, which is no small thing in a shifting economy. I would never work with anyone else!

Rachel Filwett
North Liberty

A great advocate for a buyer

I primarily worked with Rachel on this purchase as Molly was unavailable. Rachel was wonderful. I would highly recommend her! She was very personable, and professional. As a first time home buyer I was on a learning curve, and she was ready to answer all my questions! She serves as a great advocate for a buyer to make sure they are getting what they want and doesn’t leave any details out. She was also very easy to get a hold of and responded in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Rachel and Molly to anyone looking into buying a home-you won’t regret it!

Iowa City

Molly was a joy to work with!

Molly was a joy to work with! She was easy to contact and truly listened to what we were looking for in a home. She really worked with us and stayed flexible throughout our home buying journey.


Friendly and Professional

Molly and Rachel were great through the whole process. I had to move around an extremely quick turnaround time due to my job and Molly and Rachel were able to help me meet my deadline.  They were friendly, very professional and helped find my family our new home! Thanks ladies.

Cedar Rapids

Rachel was amazing!

Rachel was amazing with the purchase of our first home. She met with us initially to help us recognize the elements that were most important to us, and was easy to connect with. She responded to emails almost instantly, and met at odd hours, always willing to accommodate our work schedules. She knew the area and understood the quick spring market, helping us secure the home we wanted just hours after we toured it. As a bonus, Rachel provided us with all our documentation on an USB so we have everything in one spot. Forever grateful Rachel!

Rachel is knowledgeable, relatable and very efficient. She is an outstanding communicator. Having bought and sold a number of properties over the years, Rachel and Molly provided my wife and I the best possible experience. I highly recommend!

Happy Client

They made it easy

Rachel and Molly were absolutely wonderful to work with. Moving into a condo, they were extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any questions at all times. They made it easy and appreciate their hard work.

E. Straub

We would highly recommend Rachel

Rachel was a great realtor. She respected our price range, had great communication, and was very flexible. She was very knowledgeable in the whole process, and since we were first time home buyers, she was informative and helped us every step of the way. We asked to see homes sometimes twice, or have somebody else come with us, and she always made sure that she answered all of our questions. She still stays in touch after our purchase. After moving in we had an issue, and she gave us information on some steps we could take, and followed up to make sure it was resolved. We would highly recommend Rachel, and hopefully when we are interested in selling our home and buying something new, she is still a realtor because we would love to use her again!

A Miller

Exceptional experience

Our first home buying experience was made easy and enjoyable with Molly. Molly was consistently so accessible to us and promptly answered all of our questions and helped with our concerns. Molly is highly knowledgeable regarding the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area. I cannot say enough about how exceptional our experience was with her.

Best Realtors

Best Realtors I have worked with. High High recommendation. They had all you need for buyer and seller. They also know good handyman that could help with your project too.


Rachel really helped us find our Iowa City house

Working with Rachel has been great. She is warm, genuine, and very easy to talk to. She is also detail-oriented and competent about all aspects of real estate. She was always available via text, email, or phone at pretty much any time of day or night.

Rachel took the time to show us more than a dozen houses from areas as far-ranging as Riverside to Solon. Finally, we saw a great home in Iowa City and Rachel helped us move fast (we bid that very same day along with 4 other buyers!) by quickly preparing our offer documents. After a nervous day of waiting, Rachel called us at 10 pm that evening to tell us we had won the bidding process and the house was ours! She was genuinely excited for us.

The difference between a pro and an amateur, IHMO, is looking after the little details. And with Rachel, she really does that. At closing she gave us a thumb drive with all of our important home docs archived on it. She sent us an email about week before move-in with contact info for all local utilities. She recommended very competent home inspectors and moving companies. She even left a gift basket for us in our new home the day before we moved in.

We can both endorse and recommend Rachel without reservation if you need real estate help!

Molly was pleasant to work with, very knowledgeable and professional, and very responsive. She made the process easy and quick. She was helpful in every way and walked us through everything we had to do. She was kid friendly and assisted us with viewings with kids in tow. I couldn’t have hoped for a better experience.

Punctual, polite and very communicative

Molly was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was punctual, polite, very communicative, and worked hard to guide us through our first home buying experience! We were impressed with her continual guidance after we bought our home to resolve an issue with our siding. Molly continued to check back in with us to make sure that our needs were met and our expectations exceeded. We highly recommend Molly!

E Hunerdosse

Rachel and Molly truly go above and beyond

Rachel and Molly truly go above and beyond in every area of the real estate business. As a first time home buyer there were many areas of the process that seemed daunting but Rachel and Molly explained things so well and walked me through every single step until I felt comfortable. They are experienced, smart and so hardworking which in turn made this entire process feel so easy and seamless. If you are in need of a realtor, I would highly recommend these two, you will not be disappointed!

Iowa City

Rachel was a joy to work with

Rachel made the whole complicated process of selling and buying a home extremely easy. From our first meeting where she explained each step in detail, to the very end when she had a gift basket waiting for us at our new home, she was a joy to work with. She’s at least 10 minutes early to everything all the time and she responds to any text, email or call immediately. Rachel is super knowledgeable about each step of the process and did a great job getting both properties to closing. She exceeded our expectations and we will definitely work with her in the future.

Gave good direction

Gave very good direction. I had a few offers not meet the sellers objective but I am glad I ended up with the condo that I did. She respected my price range and the amount of time I would be using the condo and a good opportunity happened—leaving me no what ifs.

Molly was a great educator

A realtor in Des Moines referred us to Molly and we are really happy that she did! Molly was a great educator and took the time to walk us through all of the why’s and how’s. She is very client-focused and responded to calls and emails very quickly. She was on top of everything and we felt like we were in great hands with Molly. We also really appreciated her reasoned guidance. We would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Wonderful through the process

Molly helped me in buying my first home and was wonderful through the process. She responded quickly to all questions whether it was phone calls, text, or emails. She listened to what I wanted in a home and was supportive of helping me find it. She made the experience so much easier and less stressful on me.

I was fortunate to locate Rachel Barnes

Our Minnesota based firm required a smaller office/warehouse facility in Iowa City to support our work in the area. I was fortunate to locate Rachel Barnes, a commercial real estate agent in Iowa City. I flew in for a day to see the building options available. Rachel lined up a half dozen sites to visit and gave me info on a few more buildings.

After I left the area Rachel followed up quickly with answers to all my questions and we made a purchase offer on a building which was accepted. Our closing was quick and professional with all necessaries prepared in advance. We are happy with our new facility and appreciate Rachel’s good work in helping us acquire it.

Molly was absolutely great.

Molly was absolutely great. I was shocked when she told us what she wanted to sell our house for. I never thought we would get that much for it. When our house sold in four hours after listing it for more than the listing price, we were beyond happy but a little stressed out, because now we had to find a new house fast! Molly was extremely helpful in finding us a new house in a short amount of time, and she went above and beyond to find us places and meet us there at any hour of the day. We finally decided on a house and absolutely love it. Molly was a great help every step of the way, and we would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate help.

N & B Kullbom

You won’t be disappointed

My wife and I weren’t expecting to move when we did, but when we saw our dream home come up for sale, we knew we had to jump at the opportunity. Molly made the process of selling our existing home and moving into our dream home extremely easy! What we thought would be a stressful process turned out to be very painless and enjoyable due to Molly’s professionalism, expertise, and over all passion for what she does. You won’t be disappointed allowing Molly to help you with your real estate needs!

Molly put our minds at ease

My fiancé and I were looking to purchase our first home. We didn’t really know what we were getting into or what to expect but Molly quickly put our minds at ease. She listened to what we wanted in a home and found showings that matched our wants and our budget. Whenever we had questions she was quick to answer. Molly is everything we wanted in a buyer’s agent. She was patient, kind, understanding, and very knowledgeable. She never tired to persuade us one way or another and we never felt pressure to settle on a home. We will definitely call on Molly the next time we need a realtor!

K Messersmith

I can’t say enough good things

I can’t say enough good things about Molly. Her patience, willingness to help at all times of the day, knowledge and expertise, and kind personality made our first home buying experience so great. She cared about the same things we did and knew our style and taste from day one. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Iowa City

Kind, knowledgeable, and honest

This was our first experience with the home-buying process. Admittedly, I’m not a very patient person and new the process would be stressful since a lot of the home-buying process is out of your hands (will they accept your offer, what will the Home Inspector find, etc. etc). We had a great stroke of luck when we ended up teaming up with Molly. Molly is kind, knowledgeable, honest and so incredibly hardworking. Molly had a way of calming my fears and was so knowledgeable about the Iowa City-area that it helped put me more at ease. Molly made sure to listen to what we were looking for, stayed within our price-range and helped us secure our dream home in our dream location. We were looking for what almost every other Iowa Citian hopes for (affordable, historic, walking-distance to downtown) Molly had the knowledge to act fast when properties became available and gave us sage advice on how and when to move forward. Looking for a house in Iowa City isn’t like looking for a house in other areas of Iowa- you have to move fast– really, fast! It helps if you have a Realtor that knows Iowa City– Molly is that person.

Definitely 5 stars!

I highly would recommend Rachel Barnes to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

J & K Schamberger

Took such good care of us throughout

Molly was amazing! We had a long list of must-haves that made searching for a home difficult and sometimes quite frustrating. But Molly made herself available to look at anything that popped up the same day. Ultimately, we found the perfect home and it was FSBO, which Molly handled expertly. We ended up having a very long contract period before closing and Molly took such good care of us throughout, maintaining constant contact with us and with the seller. She kept us on schedule and got us to close on time, and even with an adorable and heartfelt housewarming gift. I cannot recommend Molly enough and have already referred her to a couple of my friends embarking on their home searches! Thanks, Molly!

Highly Likely to Recommend

Rachel has represented us numerous times. From showing us rental properties, helping us find fixer uppers, and from the purchase and sale of our home. She can do it all, and with a smile on her face. We would highly recommend her for any Real Estate transactions that you may need.

We could not be happier with our experience

We could not be happier with our experience with Molly. She helped us find and secure the perfect home for our needs. She was responsive, helpful and patient the whole way through. I must admit I did not fully appreciate going into a home purchase how big a role the realtor would play. I feel so grateful to have had such a wonderful champion in Molly. Her knowledge and expertise helped us through every step and really added a level of smoothness and certainty to the entire process. Thank you, Molly! We are so grateful for your help.

Iowa City

Very easy to communicate with

Molly was great to work with. She listed and sold my condo in three days, and was able to help me find a new house as well. Molly was very easy to communicate with, whether it was by phone, e-mail, or text. Molly was able to help set a good price for selling my condo, and helped negotiate a great purchase price for my new house. Molly was there to help however she could, throughout the entire process of selling and buying. She was willing to go the extra mile and made everything go smoothly. I will definitely use Molly again, and have recommended her to many friends.


Always good at communicating

I really enjoyed working with Rachel! She made the experience fun and not so stressful. She was always good at communicating and showing up early to all of our showings. I would highly recommend Rachel Barnes.

I worked with Rachel Barnes on buying my first home, and what an emotional experience it was! Every time I thought I had reached an impasse in my search for the home I was looking for, Rachel found a way to proceed. She was knowledgeable, resourceful, and committed. I have already told her this, but I want to say it again: I couldn’t have had my dream home without her. She was MAGNIFICENT!

M. Ross

They really go above and beyond

Rachel was amazing to work with. As a first time buyer I’ve heard horror stories about working with realtors so I was very impressed with my experience. Rachel was so helpful when it came to both the negotiation and inspection process and made sure that I felt good about all of the decisions. And on top of that she was so genuine and even took time out of her schedule to stop by and check out all the updates I’d done after purchasing! You can tell this is more than just a job to her and that she really enjoys it! Highly recommended!

Patient and Engaged

As a first time a home buyer and new to the Iowa City community, I was worried about the process. Molly was patient and engaged. She listened to what my partner and I were looking for in a house and identified the ideal listing for us and walked us through the process. We love our home and are grateful for her help.

Joyce Tsai
Iowa City

We worked with Molly to buy our first home

My wife and I both have very type A personalities. Therefore, we cannot say enough about how patient, understanding, helpful, and wonderful it was to work with Molly. She’s extremely responsive to emails, phone calls, texts, etc. The level of service that we received was unbelievable and put our mind at ease. She literally helped us through every step of the home buying and customization process. Molly also fought for us to ensure we got what we wanted for the best possible price. Despite our NUMEROUS questions, we never felt as though we were an annoyance or unimportant. I could go on and on about how much we loved working with Molly. We recommend her to anyone that will listen!

J & R Schultz

An excellent resource

Being first time home buyers, my fiancé and I didn’t quite know what we were getting into. We didn’t really have a lot of ideas in mind when we first started, so we were really excited that Molly was able to show us places we really loved. Molly was an excellent resource for any questions we had, and always gave a thorough explanation of the next step in the home buying process. Molly was very diligent about keeping an eye on listings since homes in the area tend to move quickly, especially in the neighborhoods that we were drawn to. Molly was also cordial and professional with every interaction and really made us feel at ease throughout the often stressful home buying process. More than that, though, she truly seemed genuinely happy and excited to find us our first home. Overall, we are very thankful to have had a realtor like Molly that made what seemed daunting at first feel much easier as she put us at ease throughout the entire process. We would absolutely recommend Molly to any of my friends or family looking to purchase a home.

Both Molly and Rachel were fantastic to work with!

Both Molly and Rachel were fantastic to work with. It was my first time buying a house so it was very new territory for me, and scary, but they both immediately put me at ease and I knew I was in good hands the minute we met. I primarily worked with Molly after our initial meeting, and I can’t say enough great things about her. She is warm, kind, incredibly helpful, and responsive. She is extremely smart and knowledgeable, and was able to explain everything to me in a way I was able to quickly understand without feeling lost in the details. I felt like I had a true support system the whole process. They even gave me a cute little “welcome home” gift when I first stepped into my house as a new homeowner! And, they followed up to make sure I was getting settled in ok, which meant a lot to me. Many thanks again to both of them!

S Honary

Molly was always available

Molly is a great Realtor regarding every aspect of the home buying process. As a first time home buyer, Molly made the experience completely painless.

Home buying process completely seamless!

Molly and Rachel made the entire home buying process completely seamless. From searching to closing, the path was paved and cleared for us. Response time to texts, phone calls, and emails was immediate. Their knowledge of every aspect was more than satisfactory. They also have extensive networking with multiple contractors, landscaping companies, and businesses in local area was very helpful. One thing we really appreciated was the complete honesty they brought to the table. They aren’t just out to make a buck, and actually care about your families future in a home. Anyone looking for a realtor in this area will not be disappointed with Molly and Rachel. Guaranteed.

I can’t imagine going through this process without her

Molly was extremely helpful in guiding us through the home buying and selling process. She kept us informed, but also took care of so many aspects I was unaware of! I can’t imagine going through this process without her!

Recommend them to anyone!

Molly is incredibly professional , friendly, and helpful. She helped us buy our townhouse four years ago, it went very smoothly and she helped us sell it in three days. Her knowledge and connection in real estate will be especially beneficial for a first time buyer and seller like us. She is also willing to help extra within her capacity. We sold ours completely remotely. The best thing I like about her is her professionalism, kindness, and thoughtfulness with her clients interest in mind. Her partner, Rachel, is super nice, too! Definitely recommend them to anyone!

Happy Client

Hands down the best person to work with. We went through a few houses, we weren’t sure whether we wanted to be in the country or city but the whole way she was right there helping. Rachel is a great. I wouldn’t even think twice about who I should call if I want a different home.

I could not have been more impressed

I could not have been more impressed, or more satisfied with my home buying experience! I worked with Molly to purchase my very first home. She exceeded all my expectations of what a realtor should be! Molly is knowledgeable of the market and did a wonderful job preparing for what to expect throughout the process. She was patient and truly made every effort to understand my needs and wants in a home – so much so that I ended up making an offer on the second house Molly showed me! She eased my nerves about making an offer so early on in the process, but never once made me feel pressure to do so. She was always responsive, no matter the time of day, and thoroughly answered all my questions, making me feel like the only person she was working with (which was definitely not the case!) Molly is completely dedicated to what she does and truly cares about all of her clients!! I highly recommend Molly to anyone buying or selling a home in the Iowa City area!

Quick to Respond

Molly and Rachel were both extremely helpful and quick to respond while helping us purchase our home. Several times during the process, we found ourselves extremely grateful for their expertise and guidance. We worked more directly with Molly, but both ladies are very friendly and happy to answer questions (at all hours!). Molly and Rachel both made the buying experience much less stressful.

She was so helpful and patient in teaching the steps involved with buying a house and her experience really guided us in the right direction through any hurdles we may have faced during the purchase of our home. Molly’s attentiveness and efficiency in responding to any phone calls, emails, etc. was truly impressive and I would highly recommend Molly for any real estate needs you may have.

K & N Bell

Always Available

We primarily worked with Molly – although Rachel was always on call behind the scenes, I’m sure — and it was an amazing experience. We received two offers for above asking price the day after we listed. There’s nothing more you can ask for than selling your home almost immediately at a very good price! Molly was always available by email, phone and text and was extremely helpful in answering our questions throughout the process. I highly recommend this outstanding team of realtors to you if you’re buying or selling a home!

Rachel made us feel at ease!

As a first time home buyer we didn’t really know where to start or what to expect but from the very first meeting we had with Rachel she made us feel at ease. Anything we didn’t understand she walked through with us and took care of everything we needed. Even after closing she has continued to stay in touch and has been a great resource for any questions or concerns we have had! I would definitely recommend her as a realtor to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home she makes you feel like you are her only client and is very flexible!

Rachel and Molly are very well trusted in the market

Molly and Rachel have ruined us for other realtors. Molly and Rachel are known and very-well trusted in the market and came highly recommended. And there is good reason why – they are the absolute best. Molly is the epitome of professional, responsive (her communication was absolutely amazing), provided guidance that was based on deep and current knowledge of the market, and has a curated list of referrals (lenders, home repair specialists, inspectors etc.). And to top it off, she is just a wonderful person to work with. We enjoyed both of our real estate experiences with Molly (both buying and selling) and wish dearly that the Rachel Barnes + Molly Trimble team could represent us in our new location (not in Iowa). Thank you Molly!!!!

Willing to go the extra mile

Molly has been nothing short of amazing. We had a very quick and seamless process because of her. She was willing to go the extra mile every time we needed something. Her knowledge of the area/Iowa City, her connections in the community, and her professionalism set her apart from all the others. I strongly recommend her to anyone in the area.

Very accommodating

Molly was amazing to work with. We live three hours away and she made the entire process efficient and easy. Molly worked with our schedules and was very accommodating to our time constraints.

Working with Molly was the best decision we made

Molly was wonderful during our home buying process! She was always willing to work around our busy schedules to organize home viewings. Finding the perfect first home can be a daunting task, but Molly went above and beyond to address all of our wants and needs. As first time home buyers, we were nervous about the home buying process. Molly was there for us every step of the way to explain everything to us. Working with Molly Trimble was one of the best decisions that we made!

Available 24/7

Molly was available 24/7 for any and all questions we had via text, call or email. The process was seamless. We could not have picked a better agent.

Molly and Rachel are an amazing team and made the entire process of buying a home feel easy and fun. Their attention to detail and knowledge of the field allowed me to enjoy the process fully and trust they had my best interests in mind. I can't recommend them enough.
