Jim Davis

SE Iowa Land Agent

Jim moved to Southeast Iowa in the 6th grade when his parents were transferred from Georgia.   As a young boy, he realized he enjoyed what life had to offer in SE Iowa and quickly developed a passion for the outdoors.  Jim is an avid bow hunter with several Boone and Crockets under his belt.  He practices QDM on his personal farms hunting for pheasant, turkey, water fowl, and whitetail deer.   Jim is in tune with Iowa’s strong agricultural presences and has extensive knowledge of farming practices.

Jim was a stand-out athlete for the Ottumwa Bulldogs.  He was a member of the Des Register Elite All-State Football team and played in the Iowa Shrine Bowl.    Jim received a Master’s Degree in Education from Iowa State University, B.A. degree from Buena Vista College, and Geospatial Technology Degree from Indian Hills Community College where he discovered his interest in drones. Jim worked in Higher Education for 20 years and was recognized for his dedication, honesty, integrity, loyalty, and customer service by receiving the Iowa Professional of the Year in 2014.

Jim is a certified drone pilot and in his spare time he shoots, edits, and produces videos for world-class offshore boat racing events across the United States.  Jim will utilize this technology to showcase your property using innovative marketing to advertise your property to a broad range of qualified buyers.   The strong relationship he has developed throughout SE Iowa, his passion for preserving God’s land, and his commitment to his clients guarantees Jim will work tirelessly on your behalf.


Jim Davis is an intuitive sincere “new friend” to anyone he meets.  He was touted the number one recruiter/counselor for the State of Iowa by the State Association of High School Counselors.  His commitment, sincerity and integrity certainly were factors in the prestigious award.

Jim is passionate and driven in helping people from every walk of life and is interested in your needs and goals.

I’ve known Jim for over 20 years and his interests and energy are limitless as is his commitment to relationships.

Jim is a selfless person, if you are satisfied then he is too; if you’re not satisfied then he’s not satisfied either. He’s the guy you want representing your interests.  There is a quote I love “Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching”.  Jim has integrity.

I have a century farm in Southern Iowa and have no plans to sell it.  However, if things change, as they sometimes do, I will only call Jim Davis.
