David Charlson  |  Realtor, CRS, SRES

I’m a native Iowan from the Fort Dodge area and I’ve called Des Moines home since 2008. I attended Iowa Central Community College and graduated from Iowa State University in 2005 with a degree in business management. After working in the furniture business throughout college, I opened a retail furniture store in Fort Dodge. However, the big city was calling and a couple years later I relocated to Des Moines to start my career in real estate. Community management is where I got started as property manager of a 220 unit complex in West Des Moines. I later became a licensed REALTOR® in 2012. I live in Urbandale with my wife, Elizabeth, and our little boy Wesley.

“We want to thank you for your help in making our move to Des Moines a much easier transition than if we hadn’t had you as our realtor. Your knowledge of the market, mortgage finance and steady reassurance as we went through the house search was invaluable to us… We truly enjoyed being in your company and respect you personally and professionally.””
Bob and Kay
“When we were faced with the prospect of selling our house we dreaded the threat of a long, painful listing because both our parents had recently had homes on the market for over a year… In a much shorter time-frame than we feared, David got our house sold, to our great relief. After the contract was accepted, he quickly shifted gears and helped us find the perfect house to purchase in no time. From start to finish, David was responsive, respectful and had all the answers we needed. I’d recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor with integrity and drive.”

Randy
“Overall, I found David to be professional, personable, and accommodating. I was really impressed by his handling of my purchasing a foreclosed home, which was certainly more complicated than a conventional home purchase. I will use David as my realtor when a purchase a new home in five years, and I highly recommend David to my friends or anyone looking for a quality realtor in Des Moines.”
Jeff
“As a first time homebuyer, I could not have had a better experience working with an agent. David is knowledgeable, hardworking, responsive and patient. He went above and beyond to help me find the perfect first home.”
Mitch
“David’s a great realtor who made time for every home I wanted to really see. I always asked his opinion on the area, home, and other details that he may have seen before. He’s pointed out things I’ve missed and never made me feel like I was settling for a home.”
