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!

  • Darron Kitterman
    Mark did a great job of helping me purchase an investment property. He was very patient as we looked at a dozen properties over the course of six months. We made offers on 5 properties before we finally found the right situation to meet my needs. Mark also helped add value on the back end by talking…Read More
  • Lee and Marit Patten
    We would highly recommend Mark for either buying or selling a house. He helped us sell our townhouse and was able to generate a significant amount of people to view it before we found the right buyer. Mark also helped us find the house we eventually purchased. He is very well organized and was alway…Read More
  • Debbie Shannon
    Mark is a "go getter". My house was sold in a short time even with obstacles such as a language barrier. I asked his opinion often and he would tell me, but always left the final decisions to me. Looking for a new town home was usually best for me on Sunday around noon and he would make it happen fo…Read More
  • Craig and Jen Bouska
    Mark's knowledge of the market helped us sell our home after only four days! He was not afraid to give an honest perspective of our home not only concerning a price point, but also giving advice and offering critical staging expertise followed by professional photography.…Read More
  • Adam and Stacey Crutchley
    Mark and his team answered all our questions, returned our calls, texts, and emails. They were able to help us with whatever we needed, even after we moved into our new house and had questions. Mark gave us honest feedback about what we needed to address in our current house to get it sold quickly (…Read More
