About Rachael Harms

My husband, Ryan, and I live in WDM with our 8 year old son Grayson and black lab Piper. I've been a licensed and full-time agent for the past 12 years at REMAX Concepts. I also run a nonprofit called Grayson's Gifts to fundraise adoption funds for Central Iowan families.

I love being in real estate and getting to know my clients on a personal level. I've been fortunate to help hundreds of families make their moves. In my spare time I enjoy biking on the many trails, checking out the local coffee shops or having a craft drink on a patio with friends and family. I absolutely love the DSM area and you'll find me cheering for my Cyclones and going to all the shows at the Civic Center.
