 Larry Stevenson and Patty Read Stevenson

We're Proud of Our Mid-Western Work Ethic

81 Years of Combined Experience

And over 2000 Satisfied Buyers and Sellers!

Larry and I, husband and wife, have been a Professional Real Estate Team since 1990, combining our 81 years of experience and client base to successfully match buyers and sellers in the Cedar Rapids and surrounding areas. 

As the oldest son in a family of 6, Larry grew up on a farm in Prairieburg, Iowa, where he learned the values of hard work, responsibility and getting the job done right the first time!  In  his teen years, his family moved to Cedar Rapids and Larry attended St. Pat's Catholic Church and School and he developed life long friendships.
