Growing up in Montour, Iowa, I learned firsthand what it took to be a successful entrepreneur with a great work ethic from the best teachers I could ask for, my parents. My mom owned a hair salon and my dad, his own construction company specializing in residential construction. We spent a lot of time working together at our family’s 10-acre farm house that was a rental property, creating memories I will always cherish. My love for real estate was born.
With the goal of becoming a successful entrepreneur myself, I pursued a degree in business and sports administration at Simpson College in Indianola. In order to pay for college, I began serving tables at a Steakhouse in Waukee, advancing to bar/assistant manager within six months. That turned into a 17-year career working as the general manager and finishing as the corporate sales director. I have also built a successful network marketing company with my wife, Allison, that has taught me the power of a team and the “never quit” attitude.
Through all of the years and many life transitions, my love for real estate was still deep within me. I found myself viewing houses for sale online and researching everything I could about real estate investing. The more I learned the more my excitement grew, and my journey officially began when my wife and I purchased our first rehab house. It took six months to buy, rehab, and sell our first investment property. I was hooked! Two months later, I officially started a company called Kairos Homes with a good friend, Kurt Rutledge, specializing in residential rehabs. We now have learned to flip properties, buy and hold properties and manage rental properties.
As my passion for real estate increased, I decided to pursue my real estate license. I knew instantly that this is what I was meant to do. As a licensed agent, I am excited to partner with the entire RE/MAX Precision team to exceed the expectations of those we serve, creating a memorable 5-star experience. Some of my favorite moments are being able to relay that an offer is accepted or seeing the smiles when a client is holding the keys to their home for the first time.
I reside in Grimes, Iowa, with my beautiful wife of 16 years, Allison, and our three wonderful children, Trey, Trevor, and Tessa. I am excited to be an example for my children and instill the same work ethic, drive and desire to be entrepreneurs that my parents instilled in me. I’m looking forward to carrying on that legacy. My family is my inspiration!
After graduating college, Allison began working in public health and education. Her first goal after securing full-time employment was to purchase her first home, all on her own! She found a Beaverdale bungalow with an adorable enclosed front porch, hardwood floors, arched doorways and a wood- burning fireplace. She purchased this home on her own and loved her first experience in the real estate world.
After meeting her husband Dustin, the two would spend hours discussing their goals and vision for the future. Many of these conversations involved discussion of having careers in real estate. With a passion for helping others and a love for real estate they knew this is what they were meant to do. With faith, Allison has followed each door as it has opened and now has experience with flipping houses, acquiring rental properties and guiding people through the journey of buying and selling their homes. Because her real estate business is a family business she enjoys leading by example and involving her kids so that they can learn about serving others, having a strong work ethic, setting goals, decision making skills and finances.
Allison also enjoys cheering her kids on in all of their activities (there’s a lot), reading, spoiling the family dog and making memories with family and friends. She is looking forward to helping you with your next chapter in real estate, give her a call today!
