    My goal in life, both professionally and personally, is to treat people well.

    I grew up in Indianola and after leaving for a few years to live in Colorado, I returned to Iowa to start a family. My husband Keith and 4 amazing children Sebastian (19), Nathaniel (17), Mirabelle (12), Ethan (10) are so supportive and inspiring!

    Licensed to sell real estate since 2000, I have been a Broker/Owner since 2007.  I enjoy the challenge and the honor of helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals with my team of dedicated agents who all have specialized roles for their part of the real estate process.  I also love the opportunity to work with my husband Keith as Chief Operations Officer for our business—we have been married since 1995, and have 4 kids together.  While I had great success with my prior brand affiliations ( I was the No.1 Team Leader for 4 years ), I jumped at the opportunity to partner in 2017 with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate.  It is an incredible combination of a trusted, quality brand backed by a media powerhouse – great technology, grounded in the traditions of home!

    Professional service with an emphasis on guidance, planning, and dedication to my clients' needs are my top priority. My greatest strength as a realtor is my ability to think outside the box--whether it is developing a unique marketing strategy or highlighting the potential in a property with my decorating and staging skills. I am a proactive, hands-on agent that is willing to do what it takes to meet your real estate needs.

    In addition, offering a unique TEAM approach – where we have specialized roles in each step of the process —ensures an unparalleled expertise and customer service experience.  We know that real estate transactions can be stressful and of great financial value to our clients—it is important to work with full time professionals with your best interest at heart!

The experience he gained as a Project Management Consultant prior to joining the MistySOLD team helped him make a smooth transition to Team Manager where he makes sure everyone stays in check, continually honing their skills to be their best for their clients. Keith is married to Misty, and enjoys family time with their four busy kids – Sebastian, Nathaniel, Mirabelle and Ethan. Keith loves all that the Des Moines Metro area has to offer, especially Oktoberfest and the Des Moines Art Festival.

    After a career in restaurant management, Jason decided to pursue his interest in real estate in February of 2013 and joined the MistySOLD team as a Buyer Specialist three years later. With an amazing wife and five kids, there’s nothing better than being able to do what he loves all while having the flexibility to spend time with his family. Jason grew up in the Des Moines area and still loves to eat at Waterfront – a restaurant his dad used to take him to as a kid. In his spare time, he enjoys playing sand volleyball and is a big fan of the improv comedy show, “Who’s Line is it Anyway?”

    “Real estate gives me the opportunity to meet new people and assist them in pursuing their dream of home ownership. I like the challenge of putting everything together and making the buying/closing process a great experience for my clients.” 

    Karla has been a real estate expert since 2002 and joined the MistySOLD team in June of 2010. She holds the prestigious honor of being the first Buyer Specialist and she believes there is nothing better than seeing the enthusiastic look of joy on a buyer’s face when they find, close on and get the keys to that perfect home. Karla and her husband have an acreage southeast of Indianola. Some of her favorite things include the Botanical Center and the Iowa State Fair, but nothing tops being a Grandma to her five grandchildren.

    “Knowing I am part of helping someone achieve their goal of finding the perfect investment home or their forever dream home makes me feel good and gives me a sense of accomplishment.” 
     
    In 2012, Rene joined the MistySOLD team as a Buyer Specialist and has found it to be a perfect fit that combines her years of experience in the furniture industry as an interior designer and also as a mortgage loan originator. And while real estate is hard work, that instinct was instilled in her early in life on the farm where she did her share of picking up rock, detasseling corn, bailing hay, milking cows, sheering sheep and harvesting crops. Rene enjoys all that Des Moines has to offer in arts and entertainment, but her real love for life comes from her children and grandchildren and spending as much time as she can with them.

    “When it comes to working with clients on buying or selling their home, I don’t want it to just be a transaction; I want it to be a relationship.”

    With a degree in Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management, you could say that Greg knows his way around the kitchen. Since joining the MistySOLD team in January 2017, it’s a skill that comes in handy as he puts his experience to work helping clients find that dream kitchen in the home they always wanted. An outgoing and fun kind of guy, Greg enjoys winding down with a cocktail on a Friday evening or grabbing dinner at one of his favorite local restaurants - either Now & Later or Fong’s. When he’s not in the office, he loves spending time with his family.

    “As a Buyer Specialist, I love helping people find their dream home. I enjoy looking at the different styles of houses available in the area and working everyday with an awesome team of people is an added bonus!”

    Having had a great experience each time he and his wife bought or sold a house, Brian always thought real estate would be a fulfilling career. After several years working for the State of Iowa as well as for a lobbying firm during the 2015 legislative session, he decided it was time to make a change. Joining the MistySOLD team as a Buyer Specialist has been a perfect fit. When Brian is not helping clients, he still keeps up with the local government scene serving on the Waukee City Council. He and his wife, Pam, stay busy with three kids, but always make time to enjoy “date nights” at the movies.

    “Real estate is a lifestyle – meaning your life and work inter-mingle. It’s not just 9-5, it’s whenever and wherever people are and I feel called to help them search for a beautiful place to call their own.”

    As part of the MistySOLD team since May 2017, what Ben loves most about his role as Client Services Associate is that the whole world is his office and it's a job that is full of life-changing experiences. As a kid, anthropologist (the study of humanity) was his career goal, however the jump to real estate makes sense as it’s about problem solving, understanding the needs of others and being able to relate to anyone despite their background when successfully working with buyers and sellers. It’s a perfect fit! When he’s not in the office, Ben enjoys riding bike on the trails, going to concerts and spending time with his wife and two dogs.

While her ideal home would be craftsman or colonial style with a mix of modern, country and shabby chic, Emily knows how important it is to listen to clients’ wants and needs, and then do everything she can to find a home that fits their unique and personal style. When she’s not in the office, Emily loves to try out new restaurants, as well as spend time with her fiancé, Chad, his two children, and Willa – the world’s cutest Wiener dog.

She also keeps busy with her three young children (ages 6, 5 & 1) and loves cheering on the Minnesota Twins!

    Cam joined the MistySOLD team in the summer of 2016. His goal is to earn his real estate license, and as Client Care Associate, he plays an integral role on the team by making sure sellers have marketing materials, as well as gathering feedback from showings and delivering signs/lock boxes. You could say that Cam marches to the beat of his own drum – literally! A talented drummer, he comes from a very musical family. Cam loves eating at Centro, going to concerts at Wooly’s and nachos (his mission is to find the world’s greatest nachos, so he is open to suggestions).​

He’s feels right at home in the Des Moines area and when he’s not helping clients find their dream home (or dreaming of his favorite vacation spot in the Caribbean), he loves nothing more than getting out on the greens during golf season, enjoying a night out at his favorite local BBQ joint, Jethro’s or spending time with family and his fur babies (Tink, the dog and Baby, the cat).
