About Us

From Our Customers


My daughter and I were in from Chicago looking for apartments. We made an appointment at Marketplace lofts. Stacey Klich assisted us to find a place right away. She was incredible! She went above and beyond our expectations. She was professional, efficient and dedicated to us, as customers. I didn't want her hard work to go unnoticed. We did look at other places prior to our appointment with Stacey and there was NO COMPARISON. We will definitely promote Hubbell Realty at every opportunity. Thank you again!

Ken Portsche does what he says and more. He works long and hard to help you, he goes the extra mile and takes affirmative action for his company. I receive the very best that he has to give, which is unheard of these days, and I appreciate it.

I would like to compliment the fine job Dave Vespa did during my stay. He was very accommodating. I appreciated my time there.

Bankers Trust recently completed the successful acquisition of Iowa Enterprise Zone tax credits related to the Brownstones on Grand and the Riverpoint Lofts projects from your company. Denise Charter-Jones and I would like to commend Brett Hyland for his diligence and professionalism in executing these transactions in such an efficient manner. He was a pleasure to work with.  We look forward to working with Hubbell in the future.

I wanted to thank you and congratulate you on the double closings.  Everyone at Hubbell is fantastic to work with, they’re problem solvers, and dedicated to getting things closed. I can’t wait to see these projects completed and up and running.

My family and I would like to thank Cy Fox for taking the time to work with us as we (my wife and I) toured The Winhall of Williams Pointe three or four times before making a decision. Cy has also been very helpful when taking our telephone calls. We look forward to moving in about a month. Thanks again, Cy.

I have enjoyed working with JR Textor. His market knowledge, professionalism, and positive attitude make the process easy, and he has such a pleasant personality.

I just wanted to share a special thank you for our beautiful home! We love it!!! Special thanks go to Cody Firkins, our foreman. I would like to recognize him for his very effective communication with us, his flexibility and just his overall willingness to do whatever it took to get us into the house on our closing date!!! My husband and I were out to the house just about every day to watch it go up, and we were pretty close to being past our proposed closing date. Cody really worked hard for us to get us in on time, and for that we are so grateful!!! He truly is an asset to have on your team, and we are very VERY pleased Hubbell customers because of Cody's professionalism and persistence to get us in our home!!! We appreciate him so much!!

Todd Heuermann has been the on-site project manager for Hubbell Construction as Hubbell has built a new $3.3M counseling facility for the Des Moines Pastoral Counseling Center. Groundbreaking for the project was June 24, 2010. Heavy rains continued throughout much of the summer. The project was scheduled to be finished mid-January 2011. The facility was basically finished by December 1, a month and a half early.

Much of the early completion is attributable to Todd’s leadership with the sub-contractors. He squeezed workers in and around the summer rain, and managed the various sub-projects in an effective manner.

His knowledge of the various facets of the project and how they fit together was not too unlike the conductor of a symphony.

A striking quality of Todd and all the sub-contractors was the friendly, upbeat attitude throughout the project. No matter what the question or discussion of a potential or needed change, Todd’s attitude was consitently, “That’s not a problem. We can do that.” His warm patience and timely humor regularly characterized his engagement.

Todd is a perfectionist. He wants his projects to be done right and he knows how to make that happen. He communicated the sense that I could have total confidence in him and his team right from the beginning.

I could not be more pleased with Todd, as well as the whole Hubbell team.

We would like to recognize and thank Brian Longacre for outstanding service. He always responds to all requests in a timely manner and with a friendly demeanor. He always takes the time to explain the situation and asks if we have any other concerns instead of just giving a quick answer and making a quick exit. All the great computer programs and telephone 800 numbers cannot retain customers if there is not genuine customer service when needed. That is where Brian’s skills and services shine.

I want to again tell you how great it is to have Bill Fitzgerald on your staff. He is always willing to go above and beyond for us. We appreciate all his hard work.

On behalf of Iowa Health Physicians and Blank Pediatric Therapy, we’d all like to thank you for your work on the new Ankeny clinic. The project was run very well and our changes and concerns were addressed very timely. Jim Woods and Cameron McGuire provided excellent customer service to our staff through the construction process and moving in. John Taylor and Amy Kapler managed the time and finances in an organized and professional manner. As a result, the clinic is one of the nicest buildings that IHP occupies.

- Tom Kieffer
Iowa Health Physicians


I received your letter about our recent transaction in the Broadway Industrial Park. Jason deNeui and Casey Port made the construction process a great experience. The building was perfect and I attribute that to the care and attention they put forth in the project. Even now with the tax abatement issues that have arisen recently, Casey has taken charge once again, and is going above and beyond to get them resolved. Obviously, great companies are built with great management and great employees. You have great people around you and any future projects will definitely be going through Hubbell.

I am a small builder that builds approximately 15 homes per year. I give great thought into where I build and who I do business with. I recently drove through a community in Pleasant Hill called Copper Creek and was impressed. The development was very clean, the lots were well maintained, it was by far NOT a “cookie cutter” subdivision and I felt that this was the place that I wanted to purchase several lots to build my product.

I was very hesitant to meet with April Tufano, the sales manager for Hubbell Realty Company. I thought that I would be given the “take it or leave it” line coupled with attitude. Was I ever wrong! There was never a moment when meeting with April that she made me feel uncomfortable. This was a huge decision for me and not once did I feel pressured or intimidated.

Once I presented my offer to April I expected her to say that it would be reviewed and that she would get back to me later in the week. The offer was taken for review that moment and I received an answer within minutes! This is the response that I have received on every line of communication that I have had with April, email, phone calls, text messages, etc.

I will continue to do business with April Tufano and Hubbell Realty Company.
I would highly recommend to anyone that is in the market to purchase a lot, or in my case several lots, to call April Tufano at Hubbell Realty Company. You will be treated with respect and professionalism that is hard to find in the business world today.

Integrity Homes, Inc.


Very few companies in today’s fast paced real estate market still holds the values and integrity of a friendly, honest and first class establishment. April Tufano and Hubbell Realty show these characteristics and many more on a consistent basis.

I am a small local builder in Des Moines and surrounding communities who has had the opportunity of meeting April and her team at Hubbell and am continuously doing business with them. I have talked to many different developers about buying lots to build on and not one of them has been as welcome, helpful and informative as April and her team. 

April is the first person I contact for a lot not only because of her integrity and professional approach but also because of the subdivisions she develops. Every development I have built in has grand entrances, beautiful landscaping, nice-sized lots and are kept very clean, not to mention the prices are unbeatable. 

Greater Homes of Iowa would like to thank April and Hubbell Realty for their outstanding work and would like to HIGHLY recommend Hubbell Realty to anyone looking to purchase a lot or several lots. Their professionalism and reputation for doing good business is unmatchable.

Bill Fitzgerald is definitely a good candidate for a job well done. I appreciate all of his efforts to maintain and help out with all of our requests in all three of our Riverpoint locations. He is always diligent and very responsive to each request. Thank you for all of your help.

Doug Clement recently installed outdoor seating at Lakeview Medical Plaza in response to a public request to install a bench for the elderly patients to sit and rest while waiting for rides.  I am very impressed with your response to the request...you have illuminated a little bit of faith in corporate America. Thank you very much.
