Nick Skinner

SPECIALTY: Iowa Land Agent | VP Marketing | Owner

Growing up on a family farm in Northwest Iowa is something that Nick cherished at a very early age. It was there that his parents taught him what hard work consisted of by having him help grow and sell sweet corn.  This experience with entrepreneurship was eye opening for Nick and he enjoyed every bit of it. When he wasn’t helping on the farm, he played sports in high school, and later graduated from Briar Cliff University with a B.A. degree in business administration and marketing.


After graduating from college, Nick then turned his talents to professional photography, videography, and marketing. He enjoyed helping build one of the most sought-after brands in the hunting industry, Whitetail Properties Television, located in Pike County, Illinois. At Whitetail Properties Television he played a very crucial role in branding and setting a high standard for quality of marketing content. While he loved what he did, he found that his love was the land. Being on it every chance he could was where he always found himself, and being around clients and landowners is what proved to fuel his passion for success.


Fast-forward to the spring of 2017, where Nick started Iowa Land Company with his three brothers Cody, Luke, and Matt. “This made total sense,” Nick stated. “Returning to Iowa was the best decision I have ever made; the people here are awesome and the culture is simple yet phenomenal.  My roots are here, and this is where I am supposed to be. Iowa is home!” Not to mention the world-class deer hunting that Iowa has to offer. Being a die-hard hunter, Nick understands the importance of hunting where big deer live.


Nick specializes in selling Iowa land and marketing. From flat black dirt to combination hunting farms, Nick is extremely dedicated to satisfying the client. To Nick, being successful is more than money; it’s the process that he is so intrigued by. He believes that success comes from hard work, persistence, and determination. Nick has built great friendships with very influential people; from successful business owners to the retired farmer. Those friendships have helped him understand clients’ needs and goals, which is what makes him able to connect so quickly with people from different walks of life. Understanding his market is something he takes tremendous pride in, and nobody knows it better. Nick has years of experience marketing land through various platforms and understands what it takes to get your farm in front of the right clients. The details are what matter and Nick would love a chance to work for you.


“Work hard now, take care of people, and everything else will fall into place!”-Nick

Just wanted to thank you again for the successful sale of our farm. After dealing with several real estate companies throughout the course of our investing and farming career, it is apparent that Iowa Land Company is leaps and bounds ahead of any we have found yet. The professionalism, and the up front honesty both Nick and Iowa Land Company had shown throughout the process of the sale will not be forgotten, and I can guarantee that Iowa Land Company will be the first call I make when looking for another piece of Iowa dirt. The two most important characteristics of a SUCCESSFUL real estate company, in my opinion, are #1 knowledge of the market and #2 understanding people, and it is evident through how they dealt with us both Nick and Iowa Land company excel in both aspects. I highly recommend using Iowa Land Company if you are interested in either buying or selling dirt in Iowa, you will not be disappointed.

“I had been tracking another land management company for several months. However, the company spread out their business across the Midwest and was not responsive to my request for information. I continued to search for land management/ real estate companies and came across Iowa Land Company. One of the reasons I decided to contact them was that they focus on Iowa land. I contacted them and made an appointment to meet with Nick on my property.  Within a few minutes of talking with him, I knew I was going to be in good hands. He was very thorough when answering my questions, extremely resourceful in finding details that I couldn’t provide about the property, and provided the assurance I needed to know my property was being handled in the most professional manner possible. As a non-resident living over six hours away, these things were extremely important to me. I am extremely grateful for Nick’s professionalism and the rest of the Iowa Land Company team for making the auction of my land flow seamlessly from beginning to closing. I would recommend them to everyone who is looking for an honest and reputable team to sell their property.”

I was very pleased with the sale of my property in Washington County, Iowa. I had the farm listed FSBO for several months with no luck in selling it. You found a buyer in less than 45 days, which was much sooner than I expected. I felt I got a great price for my farmland. You guided and directed me through the sales process with ease and I felt you were upfront and honest throughout the entire transaction. Thank you very much for all your help.
