Buy Your Des Moines Home

Let us help you find and purchase your dream home.

When searching for your next home you want the best team, resources and technology available. Throughout your home buying experience with ZBH & Partners, not only do you have an experienced realtor, you have an experienced team on your side. We are always available around the clock and a full concierge service is here to help you with any question or need that should arise.

Follow us on social media for the most up-to-date information to include listings, tips and techniques to make your home buying experience better.

We have a streamlined process to include the aspects of your current home you love, and look for the details you would like in your new home! The Multiple Listing Service is an invaluable tool when searching for a home, and looking for your specific preferences. This information is accurate and current, always. It is the most tailored search technology to help us in succeeding to find your next home.

Nest.Me is another database for home searching that adds an extra touch to what the MLS provides. It will provide you with a Match Score for compatibility with your home criteria, and give you an Area Report on local businesses and other location specifics such as school ratings, parks, restaurants and more.

Once we have discussed the homes that you would like to see, we input this information into a user friendly “Showing Cart” that is sent to your phone. At the tip of your fingers you’ll have access to a map with all of the homes included in the tour, the order in which they will be seen, and directions!

Buying a home can be a complicated process. That’s why we’ve implemented a digital platform that allowed everyone involved in the deal to complete, sign and share documents online.

When you find the home you want to purchase, this is the most crucial time to have a negotiation expert. Negotiating your purchase agreement and closing details can be a little overwhelming, and has many details. With over ten years of experience, ZBH & Partners can guide you through this process with ease and make sure that you have the best representation that has your best interests in mind.

Once we have the purchase agreement completed, the next step is making sure the home is up to date in safety standards. Working with Peace Of Mind Inspections, we know they are an experienced and trusted service that will look at the home from above and below, to make sure you know of all safety concerns.

Personalized Mobile App


In this market, homes are selling faster. Alongside an MLS search, we provide you with a personalized app. This allows you to get up to date listings at your fingertips. You can favorite, and request showings all within the app.

Google Timeline

From the date of the purchase agreement to closing day, there are key transaction items and dates to keep track of. Luckily, we have the best solution to do so! We will assist in coordinating every detail and make sure that you are kept up to date with our Google Timeline feature via email. You will be notified of appointments, inspection scheduling, your closing details, all in one place.

    I can't speak highly enough of Zac's knowledge of the market and buying/selling process. Having never purchased--or even looked for--a home to own, Zac was beyond patient with every silly question and replied promptly with information that even a real estate novice like me could understand. He took  into account everything I was looking for, provided ample listings to look through and was quick to join for a tour of homes that might be "The One."

    Zac Bales-Henry is one of a kind Realtor.  Being that I am a retired Realtor in a different state, I should know.  He went way and beyond what most would do.  He showed me places knowing that I would most likely not like , but I wanted to see them and he always obliged.  We were suppose to close on  the condo we were selling at the end of the month and it took literally, at least, three (3) MORE  weeks.  We were getting a bit crazy and tired of living surrounded by boxes.  Zac and his staff were always patient and courteous even when I was about to give it up. My husband and I have bought 5 homes and two condos in the past 10 years!  Zac Bales-Henry for sure is the one to have for your Realtor as a buyer or seller.

    Zac guided us through the process perfectly, providing excellent advice and guidance. We had five showing schedules within two days of listing the home - and an accepted offer within a week. He took the time to understand our specific circumstances and was incredibly responsive to our questions and  requests. We won't hesitate to use Zac and his team the next time we sell/buy a home!

    Zac Bales-Henry is by far the best Realtor hands down!  I attempted to sell my home by myself a single mom "for sale by owner".  Zac happened to show my home to one of his clients and through email exchanges it was evident how knowledgeable and helpful he was even when I wasn't a client.

When selling my home by myself wasn't working I reached out to Zac for some real estate advice and he said he would be willing to help me if I so desired.  I definately needed Zac's help since my only option before Foreclosure would be to try and sell my home with the bank by doing a Short Sale on my home.

Joshua & Lacee Conley - ★★★★★

    After attempting to go it alone I was very thankful to have brought Zac into the fold.  He helped find homes that matched what I was looking for and took the stress out of setting up walk-throughs.  Zac also provided honest and matter-of-fact advice as to the value of a particular home and what could be done in the future to ensure that the home I was purchasing was an investment in my future.  This meant that on more than one occasion Zac advised that the home was getting out of a reasonable price range and that walking away might be best.

    We were not easy clients, and Zac was so patient and wonderful with us out-of-towers who were very specific about what we wanted. For months, he worked hard finding us our perfect home! We put offers on two other houses before finally finding The One and each time, Zac gave us great advice and kept  us from making regrettable decisions. When a last-minute glitch came up in the days leading up to closing on the one we did buy, he went to the wall for us and made sure we didn't spend a penny more than the agreed upon price. We are so happy we chose Zac (and his partner, Travis, as well!) as our realtor!

Ruth - ★★★★★

    Zac was great to work with he made the experience very easy and painless. He did an amazing job making sure I ended up with the house of my dreams. I could not have done this without him! I would recommend him to any and  everyone!
           When it came time to sell my house due to relocation he was the first one I called. He was great about getting my house on the market quickly and it sold in 18 days. I owe it all to him. He was patient and quick to answer any questions I had. He was also very flexible in working with me and my schedule for showings due to travel. Words cannot express how much I truly appreciate all his hard work and help.
