Shane TorresBroker

Shane began his career in the construction industry after receiving his degree in Carpentry and Business Trade. He took night classes to earn an Associate Degree in Computer Aided Drafting, with an emphasis in Architectural drafting. After a few years building homes, he decided to obtain his real estate license in early 2009. Shane knew he wanted to be under the RE/MAX balloon, and decided on RE/MAX Real Estate Concepts. As his business began to flourish, he opened an office in Polk City and began adding office staff. Shane built a strong business over the years and also saw an opportunity to become a mentor to other agents. He accepted the offer to become a Broker/Owner with RE/MAX Real Estate Concepts in 2013, and he became a principal owner of RE/MAX Real Estate Concepts in September 2016.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Des Moines, IA.
    Zack was great to work with. He was always responsive on questions and very willing to work around schedules to make sure I could meet him as well as the general contractor.

    I look forward to several more transactions with the Shane Torres team as I look to expand my business!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Polk City, IA.
    Chance Curphy provided great service and helped us have the ideal sale experience. Chance knew the Polk City market. And because he and the whole agency was so in tune, they already knew of a buyer that might be the perfect fit for our home. We had one showing and three days later, had a final purchase agreement. Fingers crossed the financing goes just as smoothly! Many thanks to Chance for his great work.

    The Torres team, especially Cameron Campos, was so helpful to my husband and I during our first home buying experience. Cameron guideded us start to finish. I highly recommend Cameron and the Re/Max team.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $100K in Highland Park, Des Moines, IA.
    Chance did a amazing job! We fell in love with a house he showed us and he was on top of his game getting it for us. We needed a lot of help, he helped us with going through the process of buying our first home. I highly recommend him!

    Bought a home in 2017 in Crocker, Polk City, IA 50226.
    Working with Jenna Ellingworth was nothing short of fabulous. She not only helped me find a place to call Home but always had my best interests at heart. I had heard a lot of horror stories of people buying a home and was very nervous but Jenna made this experience go so smooth and made it fun. I don't think there was a moment I wasn't smiling throughout this whole process. Jenna always listened to my needs and wants, brought new ideas to the table, and always responded in a timely manner. I would highly recommend working with her and cannot wait until I get to work with her again in the future.

    Bought a Condo home in 2017 for approximately $150K in Norwalk, IA.
    I have worked with Cameron Campos through my purchase of a town home and he has gone out of his way to accommodate my needs. I have not purchased a home in 36 years and a lot of things have changed in that time. I couldn't ask for anyone more thorough and understanding. I completely trust him and know with out a doubt he will watch out for my best interest. thank you Torres Team!!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $125K in Polk City, IA.
    I worked with Jenna Ellingworth from Shane Torres office and I would highly recommend her. She answered back to you whether she had an answer yet or not so we knew she was looking into it. When calling in or stopping by the office, they treated us very well and was helpful. The whole staff seems very helpful.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $300K in Polk City, IA.
    We were a little hesitant to put our home on the market using a realtor and even thought of using "For Sale By Owner", but Shane and his team came highly recommended by many of our friends in town. From our first meeting to the call that our home had been sold we have been very impressed with Shane and his team handling our account. We had a realtor (Cameron) assigned to help us navigate our way through the process and handle our negotiations. We had a photographer (Randi) who gave us staging pointers, photographed and shot drone video of our home. An office director (Theresa) and client care specialist (Brenda) who kept us informed with updates so we were never left wondering what's going on or what is next. Their combined efforts resulted in our home being on the market five days before we received an offer after only two showings. They negotiated more money for our home than we thought was possible. My wife and I would highly recommend Shane and the entire Torres Team.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $175K in Sheldahl, IA.
    We've been looking for a house for 4mths. Zack, has really gone out of his way to help us find that perfect house, that we all agreed on. If we had any questions, Zack would find the answer if he didn't already know the answer. Zack, would never push a house on us, that we didn't want. He's the type of agent, that wants us to be completely happy with our home. Zack, definitely knows his business, when it comes to real estate.
    When we call or text him, he responds real quick.
    He also knows how to fill out all the paper work.
    Shane and his crew are a wonderful group of people. They will help you in anyway they can. You won't find a nicer group of agents.
    Thank you Remax Team.
