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 helped us find our home over the summer of 2014. We were first-time homebuyers (and new to Central Iowa) and had a thousand questions about the process and individual homes; Mark was extremely patient and informative, showed us all the homes we wanted to see (sometimes more than once) plus some…Read More

    We would describe Mark Charter in one word - AWESOME. He sold our home in two days for full asking price. We even received two offers! Mark did an outstanding job from start to finish.
