Testimonials

The Harbach Lofts project would simply not have happened without the assistance of Christensen Development. Their expertise in tax credit financing was invaluable and their willingness to share advice from their own development experience made for an incredibly successful partnership.

When we took on the task of building a new corporate headquarters, I thought that I would handle the day-to-day while still performing my normal duties. It became apparent that it was going to be too much for me, and a colleague recommended Angie and Christensen Development. I was a bit apprehensive to hire anyone, but in hindsight, I don’t even know how we would have done it without them. I am so glad that we made the decision to move forward with Christensen as a partner. It was worth every penny.

Des Moines Social Club at the Firehouse would not have happened without the expertise, vision and risk-taking that Jake and his team undertook to get us where we are today. Christensen Development helped us navigate not only the development process, but also through the mucky waters of historic and new market tax credits with a strong care and passion for our project. It is a testament to their team's strong knowledge and perseverance that DMSC is thriving today. They are the A team in Central Iowa when it comes to all things development.

AEG had determined to do a full renovation of our historic property in downtown Des Moines. A project like this needed a team that really understood historic preservation, the various programs that support projects like this and the political savvy to navigate all of the various agencies. We were delighted to hire the team from Christensen Development to assist us with this process. They were easy to work with, always made sure we understood what was needed and guided us through a very successful redevelopment.

Christensen Development was honest, dependable, and easy to work with. Our project was a big undertaking for our company — expanding and moving our headquarters — with some very tight deadlines, so we needed a developer that could stick to a schedule and deliver, which Christensen did. We will work them again!
