Our Team


Chris Lane

Owner / Broker

I started my real estate career in 2016 years ago with Carter Agency. With the retirement of Dennis Carter I took over as broker in 2019 and changed the name to Carter Real Estate.  When not working, I spend most of my time raising my 3 boys with the help of my wife, Sarah. We are proud to call Creston our home and would love to help you find your home here as well.

Marie Chapman

Insurance Agent / REALTOR

As a second generation Insurance Agent of over 30yrs & Realtor for over 24yrs you could say it's in my blood. Taking the time to build a relationship with my insurance customers enables me to customize policies that best provide for their needs. When it comes to my real estate carrier I'm committed to assisting my clients during the buying and selling process to make it as seamless as possible. My husband Dan and I have raised 2 children in Creston and now have 2 granddaughters. In my free time I enjoy crafting, doing home projects, adding to my garden and most of all spending time with my family.

I joined Chris Lane Agency in 2022 and couldn’t be more excited to be part of this team! As well as working for Chris, I am currently a middle school teacher at St. Malachy School. When I am not working you can find me walking my dog, Arthur, spending time with family, and traveling. I was born and raised in Creston. There isn’t a part of town or neighborhood in Creston that I don’t have a memory of from growing up here. I am excited to help you with your buying and selling needs to start making your own memories in this great community!
