Mark Charter

Owner / Realtor

Mark Charter has been practicing real estate full-time since 2005. 

Over the years, Mark realized that real estate could be done in a better way. Buyers and sellers deserved more. More services, more choice and more care.

The motto of Charter House is "Real Estate Redefined". We want our clients to realize that when it comes to finding an agent to work with, it is possible to get more of everything and enjoy the process along the way.

Mark hopes you will become a Charter House client soon and experience the difference for yourself.

Shonna Murrey


My goal is to have my clients become clients for life.  I do this by having great customer service, consistent communication, strong attention to detail and ensuring a positive experience for all parties involved; seller, buyer and cooperating agents.   

My many years of moving, remodeling and building makes me a great Agent for first time home buyers, those transferring into the area, those wanting to build or the experienced home buyer. 

First time home buyers get my experience of helping them see how a house can become a Dream Home, either with through sweat equity or just by staging your existing furniture.  If you are transferring to the area, I am the girl for you!  When my family moved to the area, I looked at all the Des Moines Metro communities, before deciding on Ankeny.  All of the area communities offer great things, but as your dedicated agent I will listen to what you need and want and help you figure out where you want to live, then find YOUR home. 

I love the process of building new homes and helping clients do it too!  There are multiple home builders in the area and they each offer something unique.  Let me help you figure out the best builder for you, to make it a GREAT experience! 

For those experienced buyers who want to do it again, let me help you sell your house fast, for top dollar and find your next home! 

Whether you are buying or selling, I know what it takes to successfully close a transaction making your experience positive and seamless.  Contact me today!
