Serves all of Iowa

Friends call him Charlie, and we hope you do too.

Your home mortgage is one piece of your overall financial puzzle, sandwiched somewhere in the middle of your whole financial journey. For most people, “mortgage, budget, credit, finances” are all words that induce night sweats, heebee jeebees, and general nervous energy. But Charlie is able to make it simple. Easy. Even fun.

No two home loans are ever the same. There is no “one size fits all”, or even most. Just the right size for your needs. Charlie and his team (Team Chedester) specialize in looking at all the pieces including your budget, timeline, needs and wants to discover the best mortgage solution for your unique situation. Because you deserve a tailored fit that best serves you while becoming knowledgeable and confident along the way. At the end of the journey, you’ll be glad you did and even look forward to the next time you refinance or start the home buying process over again.

Charlie has been a licensed mortgage loan originator for nearly 20 years, with previous experience in accounting and financial advising. He is a proud alumni of Simpson College and member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. Outside of the office Charlie is a dedicated husband, dad, and community member. He takes pride in supporting the various activities his kids are involved in. His favorite space at home is his garage or his (tiny) backyard. He looks for any excuse to play a few rounds of golf, for business or for fun.

Giving back to his community is a huge part of who he is. Charlie is always looking for ways to build up his community and enjoys using his network to bring people together. He currently serves as President of Contributors Breakfast Club, is a member of Hope Lutheran Church, and is an active board member with the Waveland Park Neighborhood Association.

“I look forward to helping you get awesome mortgage results!” — Charlie

The personable service made us feel like we were working with people who really cared about us and we couldn’t be happier. Even in this strange year we felt confident about our loan and Charlie really went above and beyond to stay connected. Highly recommend."

    — Sarah C.
