Chris Betts


A little about me...

Chris has lived in the Ames area since 2008 working predominantly in the personal and commercial insurance space before following his passion for real estate and joining RE/MAX Real Estate Center in 2019, the number one brokerage in Central Iowa 7 years straight. As someone who moved around often during childhood, he loves to help families find their dream home and unsurpassed quality of life in the Ames and Des Moines Metropolitan areas.
He and his wife Lauren, sons Landry and Carter, and two dogs live on the North side of Ames. Chris is an active member of the community volunteering his free time to various non-profit organizations including being a Board Member at the Boys and Girls Club of Story County, Director of Coaches for Gilbert Youth Soccer, and serving on the local MLS board of directors.

When Chris isn't showing houses, you can find him with family at a festival, on the golf course, at a soccer match, fishing, fixing something around the house, or renovating a client's bathroom. There's never a dull moment with the Betts'.

Chris and Lauren are both proud graduates of Florida Gulf Coast University and avid Cyclone fans.
