We would like to welcome Caleb Schafbuch to our Ankeny team. Caleb is no stranger to C21®. Caleb grew up around the business with his dad Joe, as the broker/owner, and his sister, Whitney Funkhouser as an agent in Ames. We asked Caleb a few questions on camera and got to know him a little better.

Where are you from?
I’m technically from the middle of nowhere. I spent the majority of ontogenesis somewhere in

between Madrid and Slater Iowa.

Tell me about your family.

Some would say I have a large family, I am the fifth of seven kids. I have older sisters Whitney, Bailey, and Quincy. I have an older brother Sawyer — as well as my two younger siblings Isaac and Aubrey. I also have some great sibling-in-laws — Jordan (Whitney), Andy (Bailey), Nattie (Sawyer), and Seth (Quincy). My parents are Joe and Brenda. They are cool too.

What are some of your hobbies?

Hobbies include cooking, bowling leagues in the Fall/Winter, and disc golf in the Summer. I enjoy pretty much any kind of physical game or activity — I just enjoy competing.

What did you do before being a Realtor®?

Before I became a realtor I was selling cars at  Wilson Toyota in Ames.

What is your favorite neighborhood in Des Moines/Ankeny/Ames?
No favorite neighborhood yet… I’ll keep you posted.

What would you like your future clients to know about you?

I want future clients to know that I love what I do, I am here for them, and that I am never too busy to take care of them and the people they know.

Why did you choose to be a Century 21® agent?

I chose C21 for the people. It’s a company comprised of spectacular professionals that will help me learn and grow my business.

What do you like about the culture here at C21®?
From what I’ve experienced so far the culture at C21® is extremely inclusive. Everyone wants to see each other do well.
Tell me about the coaching and training you’ve received here at C21®.
I am now starting to meet with Angela and Stacey, they’re both great and knowledgeable. I’m excited to keep learning from them as well as my fellow agents.
What tools do you find helpful for your business?

All tools provided seem great. Looking forward to learning more about them.

What do you like about the team meetings/C21® Connect/round table?
Team meetings are a superb form of fellowship. I enjoy the communication between agents and the ability to delve into many of the challenges you face in this business.

Why are you passionate about being a Realtor®?
I’m passionate about being able to add value to peoples lives. For me at the end of the day it’s not about what you sell or don’t sell, it’s about who you meet and the relationships made along the way.
