It has been my privilege to work in Commercial Realty at Skogman since 2001. My interest in real estate started in 1986, when my family began to purchase and manage multi-family and commercial properties. Prior to 2001, I worked in development and management roles at St. Luke’s Hospital and Cottage Grove Place in Cedar Rapids.
Since starting at Skogman, I have enjoyed working in all areas of commercial real estate including transactions of land, warehouse, farm, office, retail, and tax appeals. My team also consists of my wife Sharon and Assistant Emma Baldwin. Together, our goal has been to develop your real estate dreams into reality.
As of 2021, I have had the opportunity to provide customers with assistance in excess of $310,000,000 in sales/leasing volume. In 2011, it was my privilege to receive the President’s Appreciation Award from Skogman Realty. In addition to a BA from ISU and an MBA from UI, I also hold professional certifications as a CCIM and SIOR.
From 2015 to 2018, I served as Vice President of Skogman’s Commercial division. From 2016 to 2018, I also served as Chief Operations Officer for Skogman Realty.
It is my pleasure to serve on many boards and service organizations around the community and state. These include St. Luke’s/UnityPoint, Wellmark, Faith Bible Church, and Rotary Club.
Sharon and I have been married for forty-five years. We have four adult children, and thirteen amazing grandchildren.
