Your new home is waiting


I look forward to helping you with any questions. A little backstory on how important this community is to me. I was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. I attended Hoover High School and Central Campus (Home Building I and II Courses) and graduated in 1998. Throughout high school, I was heavily involved in athletics playing football and rugby. I attended DMAAC from 1998-2000. I began my professional career in 2000 as a Loan Originator. I originated mortgages for multiple lenders from 2000-2005. I then spent from 2005-2014 as a mortgage underwriter working in origination underwriting, mortgage default underwriting and forensic mortgage review. During that time I also spent time as a tax preparer helping families with their personal and family returns. In 2009 I received my real estate license and have been helping families achieve their home buying goals ever since. I joined RE/MAX Real Estate Concepts in 2014. Outside of Real Estate I have a love for Martial Arts. I have spent extensive time doing Judo, Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai. I participated in the summer Iowa Games in the sport of judo and judge local MMA and Muay Thai events. I have also spent time working with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program of Central Iowa. I am an avid fan of the Kansas City Chiefs. I married my wife Jaimee in 2009 and we had first son in June of 2013 and welcomed our second son in December of 2015.

"We have been fortunate to partner with Chris with 2 moves. 1 being Des Moines to Pleasant Hill and the other being Pleasant Hill to Palm Coast, Florida. While each move has its challenges and definitely factoring across multiple state lines, Chris made it feel like family and comforting to trust someone who cares as much as we do about each home. He is patient and asks the right questions to know what your goals/needs/wants are to in turn provide the best options for you. In our experience, Chris was easy to work with while ensuring our family needs were not only met but exceeded. Thank you for the amazing care by listening and supporting our ideas and goals." - Nessler Family
