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!

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!


The Charter House Team is lead by Mark Charter, who has over 12 years of experience helping people buy and sell homes. Mark has sold over $100 million in real estate during his career, so you can rest assured, there is no situation that cannot be handled.

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! Your listing will be on all the major websites you would expect.

    Mark was so helpful in making our transition from the Chicago area to Ankeny a smooth one. We really appreciated his insights on the area and real estate experience. He was also very flexible and it was so easy to get in touch with him, even on weekends and holidays. He helped us figure out what we …Read More

    Houses don't always show or sell between 8:00 and 5:00, Monday to Friday. Fortunately, Mark isn't one of those Realtors who is only available at limited times. That was easily the best thing about working with Mark. His availability and response was amazing and in today's world where everyone expect…Read More

    Working with Mark could not have been easier! Mark listened to what we said and put us in the exact type of location we were looking for. We love our new neighborhood!
