Jackson KrileRealtor


I grew up in West Des Moines, Iowa and attended Valley High School. After graduation, I attended Florida Keys Community College in Key West, Florida for my freshman year. After a year, I decided I wanted to be closer to home, and transferred to Iowa State University in Ames where I graduated from in May of 2019. Throughout my college career, I have been very involved in the community through fraternity events, volunteer work and networking classes/events. I am an alumnus of the Okoboji Entrepreneurial Institute, a current member of Habitat for Humanity and was involved in the entrepreneurship club and Students Helping Rescue Animals (SHRA) Club at Iowa State. Some interests I have are traveling, basketball, football (watching or playing), and exploring new business opportunities.


While I worked on becoming a licensed REALTOR®, I interned at RE/MAX Lakes Realty in Okoboji, IA as an unlicensed assistant. I was originally raised in West Des Moines, and now as a full-time REALTOR®, I serve home-buyers as far south as Des Moines and as far north as Ellsworth. When you are ready to buy a home, I will work diligently to find the property for you and guide you from start to finish. Call, Text, or email my for my personalized Home-Buyer Tour Guide with each step of the process from pre-approval to post-closing!


My business is based around relationships. While my main goal is to serve you in a professional manor and create a fun and simple environment during the home-buying process, my end goal is to build a lifelong relationship with each of my clients.

    Bought a single family home in 2022 in Ames, IA 50014.
    My husband and I worked with Jackson over the span of about 2 years, and there are plenty of good reasons why we stuck with him. From the very beginning of our home searches, he listened to all the details of what we were looking for and kept tabs on the listings which fit our needs. Even when we were not actively visiting potential homes, he sent periodical updates of what was on the market. When we did finally decide to close on a property, he was with us at every significant meeting, and made sure that we were fully aware of everything that was happening and what it meant.

    Jackson is an invaluable agent, especially for first-time home buyers who are worried about not understanding real estate jargon. He is quick to respond, even with months between meetings. He went above and beyond everything we expected out of a buyer's agent.

    Bought a single family home in 2022 for approximately $275K in Ames, IA 50010.
    Killed it getting my closing covered. Was prompt. Courteous, knowledgeable, compassionate, and best of all resourceful. If I needed it done he was right there to get it done. Jackson was the absoloutle picture of what a real estate agent should be. Best I could ever ask for. To put it simply , I left the transaction with no doubt that he worked for me to get me into the house I wanted at the price I wanted. He left me feeling like I was taken care of and not just processed through. Stellar experience and I would recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell. The market is crazy but this man handles crazy well

    Jackson was a lot of help with buying my new house. He was on top of everything and always responded right away when I had questions or need information. Also had some good information on the walk through and helped look for things that I didn’t think about.

    Bought a single family home in 2021 for approximately $200K in Nevada, IA 50201.
    Jackson made my first experience buying a home so easy and fun. I thought this would be a stressful process but he made it an enjoyable one. He took the time to learn what kind of home I was looking for and he worked hard and in such a timely manner to find me the right one. He explained things so thoroughly and always got back to me right away if I had questions. He was honest and genuinely cared that I found the home that fits what I was looking for. He is a really fun guy to work with and you can tell how much he cares about his clients and wants the best for them. I would recommend Jackson to anyone looking to buy a home and I will most definitely go to him when looking to buy my next home!

    Bought a single family home in 2021 in Carlisle, IA 50047.
    Jackson helped me purchase my first home in Carlisle. He helped to make the whole process easy from the beginning to the closing. He was always very responsive and helpful with any questions I had. I highly recommend him for any kind of real estate purchase as I starting looking at existing homes then eventually purchased a new construction home. He also referred me to my mortgage lender, I will definitely recommend Jackson to anyone I know that is looking to purchase a home.

    It was great working with Jackson. He was persistent and reached out personally if he saw something new come on the market. We toured a lot of homes but finally found the right one.
