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.

Shane currently resides in Polk City with his wife and three kids where he is involved with various, local organizations.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in West Des Moines, IA.
    Was there every step of the way. We were first time home buyers so we knew nothing. I needed someone who was going to educate and guide me with patience. From pre-approval to seeing the homes we were out there getting it done. We didn’t mess around. I kept him busy with homes I wanted to see and he was flexible and quick! We didn’t look long until we found it. He was so helpful with the questions I had from beginning to end. He has great referrals and we enjoyed working with him and his team.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Merle Hay, Des Moines, IA.
    Worked exclusively with Zack Cregeen, an affiliate of Shane Torres.

    Zack has been prompt and open to any and all questions or concerns we have had during the process. He was open to texting, emailing, or phone calling throughout the day until late in the evening, always being exceptionally quick in returning any forms we required.

    As first time home-buyers, Zack walked my wife and I through the process being sure to point out important features of a home without our prompting. When we expressed we would not have a large amount of money to make fixes or implement changes after purchase, he catered his suggested houses to those criteria.

    Thank you, Zack!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $175K in Merle Hay, Des Moines, IA.
    Very prompt, courteous, and helpful! Didn’t steer me a certain way just to make a quick buck! I looked at a lot of properties before picking the one I liked and I was never rushed or made to feel like I was being too picky or overly cautious. Thank you!!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $200K in Johnston, IA.
    I was lucky to have worked with the Torres Team when I moved to Johnston! Zack worked with my family and helped find the best place for us. His local knowledge helped us find a lender that was able to get us closed on the home we chose.

    Sold a Condo home in 2018 for approximately $150K in West Des Moines, IA.
    Andrew Bruellman helped us greatly. Remax is always our first choice. He helped us buy our home and got our condo sold in less than 12 hours. We used Remax when we moved to Des Moines. Remax has also worked with our son.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $175K in Ames, IA.
    This is the second house Shane's team has helped me buy.
    It has felt far less like I've "hired" a realtor, and far more like I've got a friend and peer who just happens to be an expert in real estate.

    Sold a Townhouse home in 2018 for approximately $150K in Ankeny, IA.
    Cameron Campos helped me sell my townhome in only 3 days! He takes care of EVERYTHING so you don't have to lift a finger. Extremely impressed and would highly recommend them.

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $150K in Des Moines, IA.
    Zack did a good job of making sure the house was ready to be listed. He let me know what should be cleaned up and how to present the listing. We sold the house after being listed only 6 hours!

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $300K in Waukee, IA.
    Cameron Campos, Shane Torres, and the entire Torres Team have been absolutely wonderful to work with! We sold our home and purchased another; from the initial contact through the close of both properties, I was impressed with their responsiveness.

    I am probably called a difficult client in their office: my work schedule makes my availability challenging, we changed the time frame of listing our existing home twice (adding over 6 months to the process), and we changed our preferred new home budget, location, and style multiple times along the way! In the end we arrived at a fantastic new property and sold our prior one for almost full asking price. Cameron was extremely patient throughout the whole process, he was quite helpful, and his upbeat demeanor always made me feel like he enjoyed working with me. Additionally, his guidance throughout the process was instrumental in ensuring smooth transactions on both sides.

    I have bought and sold numerous properties over the years but this has been my favorite real estate experience. Thank you, Torres Team, for cheerfully helping us arrive at a home we love!
