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 2020 for approximately $150K in Fernald, Nevada, IA 50201.
    I was looking at purchasing my first house. I had been renting prior to this for 4 years and had no idea how to start looking for a house. I was reffered to Jackson by a co-worker and he reached out to me the same day I sent him an email. He asked what all I was looking for and what price range and helped narrow down my possible listings. Jackson gave me multiple loan officers numbers so I could shop around. I ended up getting approved while we were still looking. I found a home that matched what I was looking for on a Thursday on Zillow and forwarded it onto Jackson Thursday night. He immediately contacted the seller's agent Friday mornings and we had a tour lined up Friday afternoon. Immediately after the tour, I told Jackson to put in an offer. There was some work to do on the house, so Jackson helped me with negotiating to get it at the right price. The offer got accepted, so we were on to the next step, which I had no idea what was supposed to happen next. Jackson laid the process out, from inspection to closing. He had multiple contacts for inspection companies which we ended up using one. Jackson suggested getting a radon test, and it came back high. Jackson recommended we renegotiate to get that off the price, and the seller agreed to cover the cost of radon mitigation. Closing went smooth and ended up moving in about 4 weeks after I reached out to Jackson. He was very good at responding quickly and any time of the day or night. It didnt matter if it was weekends or not, he would always pick up or respond to my questions. I went into buying my first house thinking it would be a complicated, stressful experience, but with Jackson's help it seemed to be a very smooth, fun project. He is a really nice guy and glad we got to work together. I would definitely use him again. He is keeping an eye out for possible investment properties for me, so I am assuming we will be doing business together again soon.

    Bought a single family home in 2020 for approximately $275K in Drake, Des Moines, IA 50312.
    We loved working with Jackson. He was friendly and helpful during our search. We enjoyed looking at houses on Zillow and provided him with a list of the ones we found most interesting. During the process, he was responsive, both by email and text usually getting back to us by the end of the day. He was flexible when it came to arranging viewings, as our schedules were limited due to work. He was able to make arrangements for some evening/weekend viewings and would fit several into a single day if we had a bit more time. We were looking in about a 40 minute radius around Des Moines, but he was good about scheduling them in a logical order to save time on the road. He also balanced the schedule to have enough time to see the house, but not have tons of extra time between viewings. We appreciated how he honored our time in this way. During the viewings, he always gave us helpful feedback, acknowledging both the good and the bad. With the bad, he would give us a good idea of how much of a problem it was and how we could go about fixing it if that was the house we wanted. He worked well with the sellers’ realtors to get answers to any questions we had about houses. Once we decided on a house, he worked quickly to get in an offer and close on the house, walking us through the negotiating process well. Throughout the process, he was happy to answer all of our questions, and if he did not know the answer, he would get us one as quickly as possible. He was always professional and we loved working with him.

    Helped me rent a town home in West Des Moines, IA 50266.
    Jackson is a wonderful realtor. He is available day and night whenever you need him. Working with him from a different state, he was very accommodating in every way. He is very knowledgeable about the market. If he doesn't know something he will find out in less than 24 hours. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in central Iowa.

    Sold a home in 2019 in Story City, IA 50248.
    Great to work with when selling a home - unless your home is owned by you and a spouse separating. I was disappointed with the lack of information of the sell I was getting and the lack on inclusion as I was also an owner of the property (for example the closing date). When later purchasing a new property I did decide to find a new realtor.

    Bought a home in 2020 for approximately $175K in Midwest Country Estates, Waukee, IA 50263.
    Jack was exactly what I was looking for in an agent to help me buy my first home. Extremely personable, locally experienced, and committed to his clients' priorities first and foremost. He took the stress and intimidation of navigating the homebuying process out of the picture. Start to finish, Jack was always available to answer questions and ensure that I felt comfortable/understood exactly what was going on. I swear this guy never clocks out. Jack is your guy if you're looking for an agent who's invested in getting to know you, and eager to put in the work for you!
