Exceptional Service Always!

I am Mary Christopher, a Realtor® with Coldwell Banker's Mid America Group, Iowa's largest locally-owned realty company. My passion is providing outstanding customer service for you! I am excited to bring residential buyers and sellers together and I promise you the highest possible levels of knowledge, trust and satisfaction. My Grandma Alice taught me that there are two things in life that nobody can take away from you, your education and your reputation. I am a proud Drake University MBA grad but am even more proud of the solid reputation that I have developed over the years with family, friends, work associates and clients - a reputation of Midwest values and honest, ethical behavior.


  • Drake University's Outstanding MBA Award
  • Younkers President's Exceptional Performance Award


  • In my 30 years of experience in retail sales and buying, I was trained in negotiation skills and have successfully negotiated hundreds if not thousands of win-win-win scenarios. That last win is for the relationship itself!
  • I have lived in Des Moines for most of my life and I buy and sell homes in all Des Moines' neighborhoods as well as Clive, Urbandale, Waukee, Windsor Heights, West Des Moines, etc.
  • An aside: I just like houses. I love Falling Waters, Monticello, Graceland, and the "tiny houses" on Pinterest (yep - another Roosevelt grad!) I also built a "brownstone" doll house and it is pretty cool.
