About Jim Zachar

Real estate transactions are stressful, almost by definition. I have the knowledge, skills, and expertise to ease your stress and facilitate the process. I will make sure that your transaction is smooth and easy to understand. Our full-service office will handle all of the intricate details and I will personally make sure that you are satisfied with the final result.  I especially love to help first time homebuyers navigate the sometimes rocky road to home ownership.

Prior to my career in real estate, I worked at Randy's Carpets & Interiors for 18 years. I started in the warehouse during college, and worked my way through furniture sales, flooring sales, and finally managed the Cedar Rapids store.  My experience at Randy's taught me how to meet client needs and fulfill even the most demanding expectations.  

I also serve as President at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a non-profit organization that assists the poor in the Cedar Rapids area obtain necessary food, household goods and financial assistance. I also serve on the board at Green Square Meals of Cedar Rapids, serve on the Parish Council at St. Wenceslaus Church and I am actively involved in the Knights of Columbus. In the spring and summer, I am the head coach of freshman baseball at Xavier High School. 

Born and raised in Cedar Rapids, I graduated from Regis High School. I played baseball for the Sun Devils at Arizona State University, but received my B.A. from the University of Iowa.  My wife Linda and I are proud parents to two very active little boys, Anthony and Timmy.
