What you getworking with us

24/7 Availability

Real Estate done right is not a 9 to 5 profession. We get that at Charter House so we won't be bothered if you text us with a question late at night. We are here to help when you need it.

Plenty of Perks

Whether it is a free moving truck, the ability to pick the commission that works for you, or even free tickets to an I Cubs game, we simply give our clients more. You deserve it.

Lender Recommendations

We know the very best people in this business and we want you to meet them too. Need a helpful suggestion? Just ask!


Tired of being told there is one standard commission that agents charge??? It just isn't true. At Charter House you get three choices on how to list your home. The power of choice is yours!

Short Contracts

We meet people all the time who want to work with us and can't because they are "trapped" in a long contract elsewhere. Usually 6 months to a year. Our listing contracts are 3 months in length. The shortest you will find.

A Relationship

We are not a large corporate real estate firm. We are small on purpose and want a relationship with those we work with. We value the "people" side of this business and hope you will stop by the office from time to time to say hello. If you like being cared about, we might work for you!


Charter House was formed by Mark Charter after 10 years in the business. In that time, Mark became one of the best selling and most highly recommended agents in central Iowa. Mark personally handpicked his buyer's agents to join the firm because they were the right type of people.

Visibility and Tools

If you list with us, your home won't be a secret! We get your listing where it needs to be and it will look great, thanks to great photos and cool toys, like our 3D camera for virtual tours. Your listing will be on all the major websites you would expect.

A Different Way of Thinking

Charter House was started because the status quo was not good enough. We wanted to do real estate the right way, by putting the client at the center, not the money. In all we do, we ask if it is good for the client. Come experience the difference for yourself!

    Mark was an excellent realtor on both the buying and selling side if things. We were first time home buyers in 2010 and just recently sold our house which was only on the market for 40 days!

    After finally deciding to build a new home, my husband and I started thinking about putting our house on the market and contacting a realtor. A friend of mine recommended Mark Charter and he was also the realtor listed on the lot we wanted to purchase, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to contact him. I…Read More

    Our family made the decision to accept an out of state job with less than a month to sell our home and relocate. During the process of looking at different agents, Mark's attention to detail, knowledge of the market, and accessibility really stood out. Since we wanted to sell quickly, Mark worked wi…Read More
  • Shane and Tiffany Thompson
    My husband and I started working with Mark Charter in the spring of 2011. We were living in Western Iowa at the time, but had roots in the Central Iowa (Huxley) area. Mark was kind enough to show us a few houses at that time. We were very upfront that we were not in a hurry to move and still really …Read More
