“I was the trustee for my late father and mothers estate in Carroll County, IA. After talking with the other heirs in the estate we decided to sell our north 80 in Carroll County, IA. After making the decision to sell the farm I was in charge of selecting the firm to conduct our sale. I had followed Iowa Land Company for a few years and was very intrigued with their style of business and marketing capabilities. I read through their past reviews and was impressed with how they conducted business in the past. Luke and Matt met me at the farm to discuss our options and how to break the farm up to maximize price. I knew right away Luke and Matt were our guys to conduct this complex sale. Matt and Luke were very responsive during the marketing process, the entire process from front to back was very stress free and rewarding. Our sale was a huge success, they exceeded our expectations and I will be referring them to other farmland sellers in Carroll County. You guys are exceptional!”
– Steve Zimmerman – Carroll County
“Iowa Land Company was the right decision for us when we decided to sell our family farm. Cody and the rest of the team at Iowa Land Company were knowledgeable and professional from appraisal to closing. Their attention to detail and expansive advertising insured that we received the best outcome from the farm auction. They are a family business that always consider your best interests.”
– Duane Patterson – Mitchell County
“When I started this process for my family, I was a real novice. I didn’t know whether to sell my parents’ farm by working with a real estate agent or by selling by auction. Nick Skinner answered my questions simply, but with much-needed details. I could always rely on Nick to respond to my calls quickly and thoroughly. My siblings and I found it very easy to make the decision to auction the property with Iowa Land Company. They were professional, yet down to earth and friendly. My family highly recommends the four Skinner brothers and the Iowa Land Company!”

“We decided to sell our Century farm in early November and on December 31st we had the money in the bank. Given this quick turnaround, they clearly were very effective in getting the message out to prospective buyers. We are very pleased with the professional approach of Matt and Luke Skinner and we highly recommend the Iowa Land Company. Every marketing strategy that they used was effective in getting and exceeding the that we had for the sale. There was excellent communication before, during, and after the sale. Given the personal magnitude of the decision to market our property, this high level of communication was very important. We could not be more satisfied with our decision to list our farm with Iowa Land Company.”
– Tom & Bev Bruening – Calhoun County
“After meeting with Iowa Land Company, we knew they were the professionals to use to sell our land. They brought preliminary research and shared what we could expect. Nick and Cody Skinner communicated all details required for the auction and met our timeline. They worked with me on final details for two closings and all went perfect. I definitely would refer them for any land sale or auction.”
– Sandy McDonald – Keith Windus Family Trust
“Luke and Matt did a great job selling our family farm in Sioux County, Iowa. It was a complicated transaction that involved seven sellers living out of state. We appreciated their timely response to our questions and their polite and professional manner.”
– Jennifer Dejong – Sioux County
“Our family recently entrusted Cody and his colleagues at Iowa Land Company to sell our farm. From the beginning, Cody was professional and very knowledgeable in answering our questions and concerns regarding this emotional undertaking. Selling a family farm is stressful and Cody gave us the sense and confidence we needed to move forward with the process. He communicated each step to ensure we did not experience any surprises. He was very responsive to any questions I had during this journey. We had some apprehension and anxiety during this period of Covid-19 and Cody was appreciative of our concerns and made every effort to make sure we were comfortable in our decisions. We were very fortunate to have Cody lead us through the process and highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling at this time.”
– Grant Benson
“We can’t say enough good things about this company. They were on top of everything from start to finish. When we decided to sell our farm and house we contacted them and they came right out and took care of everything. It sold in 3 weeks and we could not believe it. We highly recommend them. We would give them 10 stars if we could.”
– Mark & Barb Lillie – Adair County
“My entire experience with Iowa Land Company was very impressive, from start to finish. We contacted Iowa Land Company and the very next day Luke and Matt traveled many miles to the property located in extreme Western Plymouth County, Iowa. They were very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company, so grateful we chose them. They were always willing to go above and beyond my expectations. This company gets 5 stars on every aspect on the sale of our 2 properties.”

“I want to thank Cody Skinner, and the entire team at Iowa Land Company, for their help selling my farmland in Grundy County Iowa. As an absentee landowner, I had many questions and concerns about market conditions and the various methods and strategies of selling Iowa farmland. Cody provided detailed market analysis and comparable sales information (over several years) without imposing any pressure to sell. When I decided it was time to make the sale, Cody explained various sale strategies and the pros and cons of each alternative. I decided a live auction would be the best choice and Cody quickly began the advertising process. I was impressed by the quality of the aerial photographs, flyover videos, and narratives produced by Iowa Land Company. These were used to produce postal mailings, handouts, videos on their website, and even a YouTube video. I was kept up to date on all pre-sale activities and all questions, concerns, and requests for needed information were quickly resolved via text and/or email. Cody assembled a group of interested buyers and organized a live auction at the local American Legion in Conrad. I was provided with real time updates throughout the auction process, and Cody sent me a video of the entire auction, as I was not able to be there in person. Cody followed up on post-sale activities ensuring all paperwork was completed and funds were received. There were no surprises and the selling process was easy, comprehensive, and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Iowa Land Company and will use them for any questions or concerns I have regarding Iowa farmland in the future.”

“Having been a residential broker in California with some experience in real estate marketing but none in farmland – my wife wanted to find someone who could appreciate her parent’s farm and would market it with consideration and respect for the other local farmers.. We checked with several other agencies- Iowa Land Company was our choice. They exceeded our expectations, and we couldn’t have been a better experience from start to finish. Matt was our broker, a pleasure – thanks again Matt!”
