Welcome to our real estate website serving all of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and Corridor Areas!

Welcome to our website!

  With over 35 years of real estate experience in Eastern Iowa, we are proud members of BOTH the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City MLS Services, and when you utilize our search functions, you have access to ALL of the area's listings!  Although we specialize in residential real estate sales and marketing, we have experience in all other areas of real estate including commercial, farmland and development properties, investment properties and more.  Whether you are a "Baby Boomer" looking to down-size or buy your dream home, or a "Millenial" fresh out of college and anxious to become a first time homebuyer, we can help you with ALL of your real estate needs!  

Providing you with professionalism, confidentiality, enthusiasm and attention to detail with every transaction!

When we walk in your home, we are not thinking about anything but "what are your specific needs and expectations, and what can we do to make sure you accomplish those goals".  We feel it is our duty to ASSIST you in making the difficult decisions that are necessary to make to ensure that your home sells quickly and for the most amount of money, with the LEAST amount of stress, heartache and inconvenience.  If there is work to be done, we can point out which repairs or improvements will be most beneficial, and can even help you line up contractors to help you with those repairs.  We won't have to SELL your home.  As long as we have done our job and we have priced the home correctly and done our extensive marketing, your home WILL sell itself.  We will take care of all the paperwork and walk you through each stage of the selling process, and communicate with our clients on a regular basis and return all calls or inquiries PROMPTLY.

When you are looking to purchase a home, we will not be there trying to SELL you a home, but will be there as someone you can trust to help you make an informed, intelligent buying decision.  We will not only inform you of the positive features of homes, but will point out any concerns or issues that may have a negative impact on the property or it's value.  If there are major repairs or updates needed, we will do our best to point those issues out to you so you will not be blind-sided later.  We will explain the buying process to you thoroughly, assist you with coordinating your financing, and help you to find just the right home for your particular needs.  If you have questions as we progress through the buying process, we will answer them or if we don't have the answer, we will find out.  That is what we are here for.  We think of ourselves more as "facillitators of transactions" as opposed to being "salesmen".  When you find the right home, you will know.  I WON'T have to "sell" it to you.  At the Cleveland Home Selling Team, we provide you with the service you expect and deserve. 

If you are tired of high pressure salesmen, or realtors who make promises but never deliver, PLEASE give us a call, send us a text through our automated texting service, or send us a request to respond to you via e-mail.  THANK YOU and we look forward to working with you.

Personal Background

Curt was born and raised here in the Cedar Rapids area, with Kristyn being born and raised in the Iowa City/corridor area relocating to the Cedar Rapids area nearly 30 years ago.  We know the area and we know the people and appreciate their work ethic, devotion to family and friends, and good nature.  We have 3 children, ages 33, 22 and 18.  Our daughter attended the University of Iowa and our oldest son graduated from Kirkwood Community College.  Our youngest son has just started his 1st year studying meteorology at Iowa State.  We enjoy spending quality time with family and friends when we are not working to meet the needs of our clients.  In addition, we enjoy golfing, racquetball, camping, vacations (preferably near an ocean!) and more.  We currently own an awesome little black Pug named Romeo who is full of life and energy and have owned several other Pugs in the past.  (I guess you can say we are hooked!)  There is just something special about Pugs that always keeps us coming back!   Although some recent winters may have made us have second thoughts, we have never seriously considered leaving the Cedar Rapids area that has given so much opportunity to meet and help others over the years.  We would truly WELCOME the opportunity to add you to our list of satisfied clients!
