Skogman Realty was founded in 1973 by Rick Skogman and since then has grown to become one of the largest locally owned real estate company in eastern Iowa. Rick retired in 2008 passing the reins over to his son, Chris, who is currently the President.
Skogman Realty is a division of Skogman Homes, which is justifiably proud of its heritage of “Five Generations of Home Building Pride”. Skogman Homes is considered to be one of the finest home building organizations in the Midwest. It has deep roots in the Cedar Rapids community and has developed dozens of entire neighborhoods such as Bowman Woods, Stoney Point, Northbrook, Cedar Hills, Fox Trail and Willowood, along with several sizable condominium projects. At latest count, over 10,000 families live in a Skogman built home.
Skogman Realty is a highly valued, integral part of the Corridor's business community. Over 180 full time professional associates make up the Skogman Realty Team. Its agents maintain membership affiliation in over 100 community, charitable and service organizations.
In June, 2009 Skogman Realty opened their first real estate office in Coralville. In just a few years the office has grown to over 40 agents and over $175 million in annual sales volume. We have grown to be the second largest company in the Iowa City real estate market and have become ingrained in the community by serving on boards and volunteering with different organizations.
Skogman Realty prides itself on being an independent, locally owned and managed organization, and its mission is to remain the predominately recognized real estate company in the marketplace. With 4 office locations, it provides a full line of real estate services throughout Linn and Johnson County.
Annual sales exceed $780 million dollars in volume, which represents approximately 4200 satisfied sellers and buyers each year. Skogman Realty participates in approximately 60% of all of the sales which occur in the market. Skogman Realty maintains a sizeable full time closing staff, with all closings done “in house”. The company is highly active in corporate relocation, is a member of large national referral service, and a number of prominent local corporations consistently select the firm to provide home finding or sales assistance. Skogman Realty has a lending partner with University of Iowa Community Credit Union to provide mortgage loans to home buyers, and insurance assistance is provided by Skogman Carlson Insurance Company.
The Skogman Commercial Real Estate Services Group is a dominant force in the sale and leasing of commercial properties, land development, income properties and businesses. The company has an architect, land surveyors, development experts and a certified public accountant. The commercial group publishes the area’s premier commercial newsletter, “In-Sites”.
The Skogman Realty name truly stands out when it comes to advertising and promotion. It has a weekly ad in the Cedar Rapids Gazette and Iowa City Press-Citizen, extensive web marketing and other print and direct mailing promotions. Internet marketing on their website, social networking sites and other listing syndication websites put Skogman Realty on the leading edge of Real Estate technology.
The company and its agents take great pride in being highly successful, for being thoroughly knowledgeable on all facets of the real estate industry, and for having a reputation for ethical conduct in all business dealings.
