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

Mark CiochonOmaha 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!

Chapin Sellin-Kurtz - Omaha Realtor®

Chapin Sellin-KurtzAfter graduating from Creighton University with a business degree in Marketing, I found an unexpected passion in real estate. I have been actively working in the local real estate market since 2006. From West Omaha to Downtown, each neighborhood is different and each home is unique. With my extensive knowledge of Omaha I thrive on helping buyers and sellers reach their real estate goals.

I grew up in Midtown and still call that part of the city home. I love the history of our old homes and neighborhoods. Although much of my experience is in older homes, I still appreciate the modern conveniences of a new home. If it is your dream home you are looking to build, or if you're interested in purchasing an early century brick Tudor, I provide professional service every step of the way. I pride my work on trust and communication.

I don't go away after the sale is complete either. I want to be your Realtor for life. If you need referrals for other 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 Realtor's Young Professional Network. I am also involved with the Omaha Chamber of Commerce and participate in many volunteer projects throughout the year.

If you are considering a move and need more information feel free to contact me. I look forward to serving your real estate needs for years to come.

Kit Pflaum – Omaha 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!

Oscar Barrera – Omaha Realtor®

Oscar BarreraAs a member of the Prudential Ambassador and The Houses in Omaha real estate teams, I am excited to share my knowledge of Omaha with you as you search for a new place to call home or sell your existing home. With the exception of my tour in the Marine Corps (Semper Fi!), I have lived in Omaha since I was 10 years old. My intimate familiarity of the city and the surrounding communities will help guide new home buyers to the areas of the city best suited for them, and I will help them find the home of their dreams.

I have a wide range of Omaha real estate experience including working with traditional home sales, foreclosures, short sales and new construction homes. My years in the military gave me insight into the unique needs of relocating military families and I am very proud to be able to use that experience to help ease the stress of a military move. In addition to my experience with the Marine Corps, I am also fluent in Spanish and am an active member of the National Association of Realtors® and the Omaha Board of Realtors®.
