Des Moines' Premier Real Estate Team
We are Des Moines Home Sales leaders. If you are interested in buying or selling a home in Des Moines, we want to be your first call.
I was born and raised in Eastern Oregon. I served in the United States Navy for 5 years where I worked in the legal field. After the Navy I moved to Spokane Washington and attended college in Eastern Washington where I met my wife Renee. After college, we moved to Des Moines in 2007 and immediately understood why so many people choose to call this area home. I originally moved to Des Moines to work with a family member who has been in Real Estate for over 30 years in Central Iowa. I currently live in West Des Moines with my wife Renee and our 1-year-old son, Myles.
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 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 a year and a half 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.
Travis listed our home at a price that represented it well. We had many showings as he anticipated. Travis went negotiated with the buyers on our price, appliances, and the radon mitigation which all came out in ourvfavor. We sold our home for a price within our goal!
Zac was great. He was very patient with the random houses that we would want to see. With any purchase there was bumps in the road and Zac was wonderful in helping get through them. Often he went above and beyond to help.
Travis is a wonderful realtor to work with. He sold our house in only 36 hours! He is on top of everything, responds quickly to questions and concerns, and overall takes a great interest in working to get the best situation for the home. He provides honest feedback and I felt we could really trust.
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!
