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!

    Everyone wants an agent who is honest and a hard worker. Well with Mark we happened to find both! Our adventure to find our home had a lot of ups & downs but Mark remained professional & calm when things were rough. He did a good job of meeting up with us last minute even with our young children.

    Mark was a one-of-a-kind Realtor to work with. He was available all hours when we had questions. Not only did we get the lot we wanted, we also shared $2500 with another couple at his $5000 drawing! Since our purchase he has cared about us as individuals. What Realtor does that after the paperwork i…Read More

    Our family was finally in a position to buy our first home. We had lived in Ankeny for several years renting but knew nothing of the housing market, nor had any idea what agent to use. We found Mark’s reviews online in several places, so we decided to let his reputation make our decision for us. Mar…Read More

    I would like to take a minute to recommend Mark Charter Real Estate to anyone currently looking to buy or sell a home.

    I want to say I listed my home in Huxley with 3 different realtors before we found Mark. He sold our house when no one else could. Not only was by that time a short sale and he did tons of extra work to help. Liz and I thank him for not giving up! Mark is a very motivated person and a very…Read More
