Don Betts, Realtor

I was born in Mason City and raised in Waverly attending Waverly-Shell Rock Community Schools, then to Wartburg College and one year living in Minneapolis, MN to attend Brown Institute of Technology. I moved back to Waverly after graduating Brown and have lived in the Cedar Valley ever since. The Cedar Valley is a fantastic place to live, especially to raise a family! It was here I met my future bride Merrilee; after marriage, we would live in Waterloo eventually moving to Cedar Falls where my wife is an instructional coach at Cedar Heights Elementary School. Our oldest son Josh graduated from Cedar Falls High School and the University of Northern Iowa and works at C.B.E. in Cedar Falls. Our youngest son Spencer is a graduate of Cedar Falls High School and Iowa State University and is employed by John Deere. My family has been involved in the Contemporary Service at St. John Lutheran Church with technical help and musician and singing participation. For years I worked with the Polar Plunge event supporting the Special Olympics of Iowa as well as the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center, Boy Scouts of America, United Way, American Cancer Society, MDA and the U of I Children's Hospital. I started out my younger years playing drums in local bands and and eventually was a radio personality on three of the top radio stations in the Cedar Valley. Now, instead of driving you home playing the hits and "that forgotten tune" at 5 p.m., I work to help you find that home to drive to! Whether you are buying or selling a home, let me go to work for you today. Call me at 319-240-2784 or email me at
