I was born and raised on the south side of Des Moines, where I attended Lincoln High School and then Drake University. Much of my college career was centered around Division 1 Cross Country/ Track and professional organizations. Currently I spend my free time staying active in the non-profit realm such as Young Professionals Connection, West Des Moines Chambers, Art Noir and countless others. At the age of 20, I obtained my real estate licenses and began a blossoming career in this rewarding field. Coming from a family of Realtors I’m familiar with the real estate business.
I’m from Northeast Iowa. I moved to Des Moines to attend AIB College of Business where I earned a Bachelors in Business Administration and an Associates in Sales & Marketing. Coming from a small town, I couldn’t believe how many suburbs and zip codes make up the Des Moines Metro! After working in the insurance industry for sometime I decided to take on a more challenging career path. I joined Zac’s team in early 2016 and haven’t even had time to look back since! In my free-time I enjoy biking through neighborhoods then researching the property values, going out with friends, and spending time with my boys!
I started my Real Estate career in 2009 working as an office assistant to 8 Realtors at RE/MAX Acorn Properties in Whidbey Island, WA. After working there for 3 years I decided it was time to come back to my home state of Iowa to be closer to my family. It was completely by chance that Travis, Zac, and I began working together. I contacted Zac on a whim, they interviewed me via Skype, and the rest is history. I have been assisting Travis and Zac for two and a half years now and they are the best bosses I could ask for. I sincerely enjoy what I do and I think it shows in my work. I love meeting new clients and helping to make their Real Estate experience flow smoothly from start to finish. In my free time I love spending time with my fiancé and our German Shorthaired Pointer, Mia. We enjoy sampling all of the delicious craft beers that Des Moines has to offer and going to local farmers markets and festivals. The multiple softball and volleyball leagues I play on also keep me busy.

I can't speak highly enough of Zac's knowledge of the market and buying/selling process. Having never purchased--or even looked for--a home to own, Zac was beyond patient with every silly question and replied promptly with information that even a real estate novice like me could understand. He took into account everything I was looking for, provided ample listings to look through and was quick to join for a tour of homes that might be "The One."

Zac Bales-Henry is one of a kind Realtor. Being that I am a retired Realtor in a different state, I should know. He went way and beyond what most would do. He showed me places knowing that I would most likely not like , but I wanted to see them and he always obliged. We were suppose to close on the condo we were selling at the end of the month and it took literally, at least, three (3) MORE weeks. We were getting a bit crazy and tired of living surrounded by boxes. Zac and his staff were always patient and courteous even when I was about to give it up. My husband and I have bought 5 homes and two condos in the past 10 years! Zac Bales-Henry for sure is the one to have for your Realtor as a buyer or seller.

Zac guided us through the process perfectly, providing excellent advice and guidance. We had five showing schedules within two days of listing the home - and an accepted offer within a week. He took the time to understand our specific circumstances and was incredibly responsive to our questions and requests. We won't hesitate to use Zac and his team the next time we sell/buy a home!

Zac Bales-Henry is by far the best Realtor hands down! I attempted to sell my home by myself a single mom "for sale by owner". Zac happened to show my home to one of his clients and through email exchanges it was evident how knowledgeable and helpful he was even when I wasn't a client.
When selling my home by myself wasn't working I reached out to Zac for some real estate advice and he said he would be willing to help me if I so desired. I definately needed Zac's help since my only option before Foreclosure would be to try and sell my home with the bank by doing a Short Sale on my home.

After attempting to go it alone I was very thankful to have brought Zac into the fold. He helped find homes that matched what I was looking for and took the stress out of setting up walk-throughs. Zac also provided honest and matter-of-fact advice as to the value of a particular home and what could be done in the future to ensure that the home I was purchasing was an investment in my future. This meant that on more than one occasion Zac advised that the home was getting out of a reasonable price range and that walking away might be best.

We were not easy clients, and Zac was so patient and wonderful with us out-of-towers who were very specific about what we wanted. For months, he worked hard finding us our perfect home! We put offers on two other houses before finally finding The One and each time, Zac gave us great advice and kept us from making regrettable decisions. When a last-minute glitch came up in the days leading up to closing on the one we did buy, he went to the wall for us and made sure we didn't spend a penny more than the agreed upon price. We are so happy we chose Zac (and his partner, Travis, as well!) as our realtor!

Zac was great to work with he made the experience very easy and painless. He did an amazing job making sure I ended up with the house of my dreams. I could not have done this without him! I would recommend him to any and everyone!
When it came time to sell my house due to relocation he was the first one I called. He was great about getting my house on the market quickly and it sold in 18 days. I owe it all to him. He was patient and quick to answer any questions I had. He was also very flexible in working with me and my schedule for showings due to travel. Words cannot express how much I truly appreciate all his hard work and help.
