Chris Pickard Owner of Sage Homes background experience

Chris Pickard


Chris's interest in building things started at an early age. Growing up, Chris watched his dad, Tom, build their family home, doing almost all the work himself on the evenings and weekends. When he was old enough, he spent his summers pouring concrete for Tom's foundation company, helping to build the homes of some of the most respected Iowa homebuilders of the time. After years in the foundation industry, Chris went to work as a superintendent for one of the biggest home builders in central Iowa. While there, he oversaw the construction of well over 100 homes. He started Sage Homes with a simple idea in mind. With a "volume" builder, it was all about building houses. The mission of Sage is to build HOMES. It's a simple idea, but one that is often overlooked. Chris is on site, every job, every day, and prides himself on availability and customer service.


Chris is a lifelong central Iowa resident. He graduated from Ankeny high school, and lives in Ankeny with his wife Abbi and their 3 daughters.
