Cody Skinner

SPECIALTY: Broker / Owner

Coming from a farm in Northwestern, IA, Cody learned the honest way to earn a dollar, using nothing but the land and sparsely available resources that the Lord had to offer. Cody’s locally grown family sweetcorn and food plot businesses were main sources of revenue during his college years. It was here where Cody learned that he wanted to combine his love for the outdoors, the land, and the animals, to fuel a career. After graduating from Morningside College with a B.A. degree, he knew that he wanted to work in an environment where he would help others reach goals while staying true to his passion.
In June of 2014, Cody became a licensed real estate agent who specializes in connecting buyers and sellers in both agricultural and recreational properties.
He has since sold numerous tillable/investment tracts that have ranged from 40 to 1,622 acres, and has been fortunate enough to represent operators, investors, buyers, and sellers. Cody has experience working throughout most of the state, including Southern Iowa’s famous whitetail county and the undiscovered Loess Hills of Western Iowa.
Whether Cody is working with an investment group, family, or a single individual, the most rewarding and looked forward to moment of each farm sale is being able to hear their story. Every farm has a story, every buyer has a story, every seller has a story, and that’s what fuels Cody’s desire to do more, work harder, and stay true to his passion.
If you’re considering buying or selling, pick up the phone and give Cody a call. He would love to hear your story.
Good service and attitude are very hard to find it seems in todays world, but I found this and more in my dealings with Cody Skinner. Cody helped me sell my farms and replace them through a 1031 exchange this past fall and he did a very good job of it. I was able to make contact day, night, or weekends and Cody was there to help or respond back promptly. He did his best to smooth out the bumps along the way, as there are always some of those. I depend on honesty, integrity, and service and enjoyed all three with my dealings with Cody. I look forward to working with him in the future.

He always had my best interest in mind and stuck to detail. I would highly recommend Cody if you are in need of Farm Real Estate services in Southern Iowa.

Thank you for helping us with our fall of 2016 purchase of land in Troy Township near Murray, Iowa.
You went out of your way to be helpful in every way possible and your advice and expertise in having the seller make the CRP application in a timely manner was invaluable.
We appreciate that you made yourself constantly accessible for all our questions even though you had to deal not only with us, but also with our joint buyer.  You did an excellent job keeping us all on the same page.  We look forward to doing business with you in the future.God’s Blessings in your new business.

Cody and Matt Skinner found me the perfect piece of hunting ground that I had wanted all my life.  They first listened to my wants and needs and then identified several farms that they thought would fit the bill.  We thoroughly walked each property.  They knew the properties well and were very helpful in identifying access points, food plot locations and potential stand set ups. These guys are hard core hunters and it shows. Once I found the farm I wanted they guided me through negotiations and finally to an accepted offer and a smooth closing.  Cody and Matt were extremely  professional in all aspects of the transaction.  These are some of the most hard working, down to earth guys I have ever come across and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.

I have dealt with Cody on three different land transactions, two as a seller, and one as a buyer. I have been very impressed with his professionalism, personal detail, and marketing strategies. Cody was available at all times answering all questions thrown at him making me feel as if I was his only client. Cody is first class land agent that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to sell or buy land.
-Clint Davis
Cody did a great job and got our farm sold. He worked with all parties involved to make sure it went as smooth as possible.  I will be using him in the future on all other land deals.

I would like to thank Iowa Land Company (especially Cody Skinner) for assisting in the sale of our 780 acres of Iowa farmland /  hunting ground. They were very professional in all aspects, from setting up the listing with the drone video and photos and on through the rest of the sale. I appreciated the way they handled the sale without any pressure, as it was very difficult to part with the land. Again, I wanted to thank the Skinner boys for their hard work.
-Dean Farms South LLC
Iowa Land Company was very helpful with the entire process of selling the property for my dad’s estate. They handled every aspect of the sale and had consistent follow-up with all parties to ensure the sale was low stress, and minimal impact for the family. Definitely would recommend this company for future sales.
