Jim Davis

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.

I was out hiking a property on the market when I ran into Jim, who was showing it to a couple of his clients. We exchanged numbers, and he immediately put me onto some great properties for sale. He convinced me to take a look at one that I had previously ruled out without looking at it in person. I’m thankful he did, because it turned out to be a beautiful piece of land at the right price. After a successful hunting season, I’m excited to see what the future brings! Jim was very helpful throughout the entire process. Whenever I had a question, he was always quick to respond with the answers I needed. Thanks Jim!

First off, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Iowa Land Company! My experience with the sale of my farm was absolutely one of the best interactions with a realtor company that I’ve experienced. Jim was absolutely very knowledgeable and professional from the very first time I spoke with him to the day I closed on my farm. Never once did I feel any pressure or did they tell me anything that they couldn’t provide or do during this process. I can’t say enough about Jim Davis and his attention to detail and follow up with information during the process of the sale. Selling your farm, home, or a piece of ground can be a very stressful thing. I’ll give you my word that Jim Davis and the folks at Iowa land company will make this seamless and one of the most pleasurable experiences you’ve ever had. Thanks again to Iowa Land Company!

I feel very fortunate that I found Jim Davis to sell my farm land. He always had really good suggestions, and presented both the positive and negatives of various options. Jim was available and patient in response to my questions, and need for updates. He was well organized, and efficiently and effectively negotiated while moving things along. Hard to articulate how helpful and supportive you were to me through this very stressful process. Jim found buyers that loved the land as much as I did, which was reassuring allowing me to let go. It was my pleasure to work with Jim.
