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!

  • Shawn and Kelly Morgan
    Mark was great to work with. Mark handled all the "agent duties" above standards. But what makes Mark stand out above your normal agent is all the perks he offers. We utilized his moving truck on four different days and we used the Iowa Moving One 2 hour credit as well. Those boys did a great job of…Read More

    Mark was phenomenal to work with during the sale of our home. His no-nonsense, tell-it-how-it is attitude is the only reason we got our home sold!

  • Brian and Katie Fliehler
    We can't say enough good things about Mark. He really succeeded in every area of our home sale. Our property was on the market for roughly two weeks. During that time, Mark secured about 14 showings which resulted in two offers at the same time. When all was said and done, Mark got us an offer for O…Read More
