My “Client-First” Philosophy

I strive to make buying or selling a home a positive experience for my clients. Excellent customer service is my priority, and I pledge to be available and respond quickly to any questions or concerns. I promise to help sellers get maximum marketing exposure, and I promise to help buyers understand their housing options. The Iowa City area is unique, and I have extensive knowledge of the current housing market. I have relationships in the community with lenders, title companies, attorneys and others who are equally dedicated to making your real estate transaction a success.

Designations and Awards

Continuing education through these organizations ensures I am abreast of the latest developments in environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient homes. I received the Iowa City Area Association of REALTORS 2006 and 2013 Gold Star Award, the 2010, 2014 and 2020 Distinguished Service Award, and the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017.


Background and Community Involvement

I am an Iowa native and I have worked in sales my entire life. I founded Folkmann Feed and Grain, an agricultural business, and expanded the company for 28 years before becoming a REALTOR in 2001. Many of the lessons I learned in business serve me well in real estate, including a commitment to excellent customer service and an emphasis on the importance of relationships.

I’ve been a resident of Coralville for over twenty years and an active member of the community. I enjoy volunteering as a Rotarian president, Johnson County I-Club director, Hall of Fame ambassador and in the leadership of my church. My wife and I love spending time with our family. My interests include Hawkeye sports, golfing, landscaping and socializing.
