About Christa

Christa Petrie is an experienced Closing Agent with a strong foundation in the real estate industry. Her journey began in 2011 when she joined a small-town law firm, where she had the privilege of working closely with a Real Estate Attorney. During this period, Christa acquired extensive knowledge about real estate processes, documents, foreclosures, and closings. In 2019, she took the next step in her career by joining RealClear Settlement as a full-time Closing Agent.

Christa’s dedication to RealClear Settlement spans over four years, during which she has embraced the company’s ethos of individual market ownership within a cohesive statewide team. She thrives on the sense of autonomy while being part of a fantastic team that extends across the state of Iowa. Working closely with transaction coordinators, realtors, and lenders in her market is one of the highlights of her role.

One of Christa’s main responsibilities when joining the company was to establish its presence in the Ames and Des Moines markets. She continues to contribute to the growth of RealClear Settlement’s business in Central Iowa.

Christa’s standout qualities include her exceptional organization skills and unwavering attention to detail, which play a crucial role in facilitating smooth closing transactions for all parties involved. She approaches her job with a positive outlook, even when faced with challenges. Christa has navigated and thrived in her role, contributing to the overall success of the team.

Outside of her professional life, Christa has a passion for cycling and participates in week-long rides when possible. She finds comfort in reading good books, actively contributes to the music ministry at her church, and cherishes spending quality time with her family.
