Gillum Group Real Estate
1200 SW State St Suite A
Ankeny, IA 50023
I grew up in the small farming community of Indianola Iowa where I learned what it meant to work hard and always give 110%! I graduated from Indianola High School in 1998 and during my time in school, I determined the importance of taking responsibility and being a team player. After high school I went on to Simpson College while also working full-time and in 2002 I started working at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage where I fell in love with the real estate industry!
At Wells Fargo, I enjoyed building business relationships with people from all over America and I was consistently a top producer in my area but I was still missing something, I wanted more! I decided that I wanted to make more of a difference in peoples lives and that’s when I decided to become self employed and got my license to sell real estate in Iowa. Being a realtor was the perfect fit for me because real estate is about building strong relationships and going above and beyond for clients, which has always come naturally to me.
I started Gillum Group Real Estate with the emphasis of providing the best possible customer service with the least amount of hassle. I’m a no pressure kind of guy and I always give an unbiased honest opinion. I have a vast knowledge of not only the buying/selling side of real estate but also the background procedures like financing, loan processing/underwriting, and title/abstracting. Along with having construction and building knowledge, I am able to help educate my clients by utilizing my different experiences in the real estate industry.
I currently work and live in Ankeny with my wife and our 2 daughters. I enjoy spending time with my family and striving to be the best husband and dad I can be. I also enjoy Iowa Hawkeye Football, cooking, hunting, cars, and trying new things.
If you think that I am the kind of person that you would like to work with, feel free to contact me and I promise that I won’t let you down! I am eager to serve you.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
Born and raised, I have lived in the Des Moines and surrounding suburbs for over 35 years. As a native of Des Moines, I understands the different neighborhoods and their many curb appeals. I have a degree from Indiana State University in Business Management, holding various positions with Enterprise Rent-a-car, Hertz Corporation and AAA Insurance / Travel. My expertise in customer service with all 3 national companies transcends into insuring that my customers are completely satisfied with the sale of their home and the purchase of their future home.
As a real estate professional I routinely follow up diligently through out the real estate process, creating a seamless interaction for all my clients. My knowledge of the Des Moines and surrounding markets will save you time and money in searching for your dream home.

I grew up in the small town of Gilmore City, located in northwest Iowa. My rural upbringing taught me about trust, respect and the importance of having a dream to chase. Prior to pursuing my passion of becoming a realtor, I worked in the financial industry for 10 years, specializing in estate planning. My ability to build strong relationships and connect with people by exceeding their expectations has always come natural to me.
I currently reside in Pleasant Hill with my German Shepherd, where we have room to enjoy the outdoors and expand our high energy. In my free time, I enjoy investing, cars and music. I come from a long line of musicians and have a good time playing the drums.
I am dedicated to helping home buyers find the right home to make their dreams come true and/or create a seamless transition out of your current home. I will work hard to help you find a home in an area that fits your lifestyle, or answer any questions you may have and even help you discover the questions you didn't know you needed to ask. I will provide my knowledge of the industry during the negotiation process and help you fill in the gaps. I will go the extra mile to ensure you have all the answers you need to feel confident in your decision.
