Mark Ciochon – Nebraska and Iowa Realtor® & The Houses in Omaha Team Leader

Omaha real estate is my passion! I come from a family of Realtors® who have helped people buy and sell their Omaha area homes for over 25 years. My relationship with houses started years ago, when I worked in residential construction. It was this experience that gave me the appreciation for fine craftsmanship and detail that I bring to my business today. When my knees made it clear to me that my future lay outside of construction, I transitioned from building houses to helping people realize their dreams of owning them. And right away I discovered this was the path for me – in 1999, my first year as a Realtor®, I was the NPDodge Rookie of the Year.

I pride myself in bringing buyers and sellers together, and in my ability to use a wide range of tools to market a home for sale. I have a critical eye for the finer details of a home and I think it’s important to share these observations with my clients. It is my belief that a real estate consultant’s role is not just to open the door to the perfect home, but to guide you throughout the decision process. I look forward to working with you!

Trina Ciochon - Omaha Metro and Lincoln 


I have found my passion and can’t wait to share it with you!   After rewarding years in the healthcare industry, I ventured into real estate and interior design two years ago and I haven’t looked back.  I thrive on helping buyers find the perfect home in which to build long lasting memories. From custom built to early American Tudor, there is a dream home for you in the Omaha Metro and I would love to help you find it. 

I equally enjoy bringing my creativity and networking abilities to the selling experience.  Home sellers can count on my passion for interior decorating to help stage our home to capitalize on the current seller’s market.

Whether you are buying or selling, I provide professional service every step of the way. Through honesty and hard work,  I will  strive to earn your trust and build faith in me to be your Realtor.  If you need referrals for home maintenance services or even just want to know what the market is doing in your area after you move I am happy to serve you. I stay current in the local market as an active board member with the Omaha Area Board of Realtors and volunteer for the Sunshine Kids.

If you are considering a move and need more information feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to being your expert and guiding with any of your real estate needs. Home is where your story begins!

Kit Pflaum – Omaha Metro Realtor®

Kit PflaumThe uniqueness that each client brings to the table has energized me since I became a Realtor in 2001. I love my job! As an Omaha native, I know the local real estate market. My background includes many years in the local land development sector and construction trades. My varied experience and diverse knowledge base helps me guide buyers to homes in Omaha that meet their needs, while also successfully marketing homes for sellers. While it’s incredibly rewarding to help all of my clients find the perfect home, I specialize in walking first-time buyers step-by-step through what can be a very confusing and overwhelming home buying process. I have helped families build starter homes and, years later, move up to building the custom home of their dreams.

Selling a home in Omaha? I stage and professionally photograph all the homes I list. In order to successfully market and sell your home, I take the time to prepare a custom market analysis to make sure we are pricing it right. From there I market, market, market! I use the latest technology to ensure your listing reaches the largest possible number of qualified buyers so that we can sell your home quickly and profitably.

I would love to hear from you!
