Whether you are considering a move from the home you raised your family in, or you are looking to finally become a homeowner, you are on a real estate journey. We all have a strong desire for the perfect dwelling place. As time marches on… job transfers and career changes… from parenthood to empty-nester… in the gain or loss of loved ones… our housing needs continue to change. Perhaps the next step in your real estate journey is right around the corner?
I am grateful for the lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and floors that need waxing because it means I have a home.

Marc and Erin first contacted me about wanting to move from their 11-year-old two-story to a newer ranch style home. I hear this very often from clients who are looking to have everything on one level with a finished basement for entertaining/guests. Some of my clients view many homes before coming to some conclusions about what they like best. However, with Marc and Erin, they had a pretty clear idea of what would make the perfect home as you can see from their comments below.

David Charlson was very knowledgeable and so easy to work with. We used David to sell our Townhome and to purchase our new home. He helped us throughout the process both selling and having a home build. I would highly recommend David Charlson whether selling your existing home or purchasing a home.
David helped me find a condo in Des Moines, that I LOVE. He was knowledgeable of the area, professional and answered all of my questions quickly. He made the buying process a breeze. I highly recommend him! Thank you David!!
I love being part of an awesome real estate brokerage in Urbandale, Dream Street Realty! Not only can I provide full service to my clients looking to buy or sell a home, but I can save them a tremendous amount of money in the process with our flat fee model! I consider my clients to be friends and I’m always available after the sale.
I’m a native Iowan from the Fort Dodge area and I’ve called Des Moines home since 2008. I attended ICCC and graduated from Iowa State University in 2005 with a degree in business management. Community management is where I got started in real estate as property manager of a 220 unit complex in West Des Moines. I later became a licensed REALTOR® in 2012 and worked under the Iowa Realty brand for almost five years. I live in Urbandale with my wife, Elizabeth, and our little boy Wesley (with one on the way).
I’m always looking for new stories to feature. If you are embarking on a real estate journey, I’d love to hear from you!
