Offices in Charles City, Cresco, Decorah, New Hampton, Waterloo
Having grown up here and graduated from Charles City High School in 1987, Charles City is, and will always be, my hometown. I attended NIACC and then Mankato State as a History major and minor in Business. After living outside the area, we were fortunate to have the opportunity to move back to Charles City in 2000. I earned my real estate license in 2002 and, after getting my Brokers License, we opened Cedar Valley Iowa Realty in 2005. That same year I attended the Worldwide College of Auctioneering and started learning the auction business with my father-in-law at Gilbert's Sale-yard. After realizing how much I enjoyed the auction business and realized its' potential, we started Cedar Valley Auction Co. and moved into our present location at 1206 Gilbert Street, Charles City,Iowa in August of 2008. Since that time we have conducted an average of 40+ estate, household, consignment, farm and real estate auctions per year. We are a full service Real Estate Brokerage and Auction Company fully staffed and capable of handling all your real estate and auction needs. Opening a satellite office in New Hampton became a reality in late 2012, after seeing considerable potential in that market to grow our business and expand.
My wife Julie is employed at Floyd County Memorial Hospital as an RN and a Supervisor. She also is very helpful and supportive with the auction business. We currently reside just outside of Charles City by Cedar Ridge Golf Course with our three children Jared, Justin, & Jadyn. We've been very blessed to have the opportunity to run a family business with so many family and friends involved!!
To all past clients and customers, we truly appreciated the opportunity to serve you!! To everyone, please call or contact us if we can be of any help in the future!!!
