We’re Turning Real Estate Upside Down

As the first and only member-owned real estate firm in the area, Urban Acres is a market leader powered by more than 50 knowledgeable agents who built the company on a foundation of integrity and innovation.

From our new office in Coralville, Iowa, just off Interstate 80, our tight-knit team of agents pride themselves on delivering a full-service buying and selling experience, from residential to commercial and investment properties. 

Clients tell us it’s our friendly agents, deep knowledge of real estate, extensive resources, and connections up and down the Corridor that keep them coming back. 

And of course, it’s the results we generate. Urban Acres went from a kernel of an idea in 2015 to number one in the market in just one year and has been named Best of the Area – Best Real Estate Company, #1 Real Estate Company by Locals Love Us, and Best of the Corridor by the Corridor Business Journal

Let us help guide you through every step of the process, from conception to closing.


We Listen. Then We Get the Job Done.

We’re constantly striving to lead the way for our clients and the community. It’s the reason we continue to take bold steps in real estate, ensuring we stay ahead in the market in ways that translate directly to you as a buyer or seller. 

Our agents excel at helping clients reach their goals, whether that goal is selling a home, securing an acreage, downsizing your current home, or relocating to or from the area.

We're More than Real Estate

While helping you buy and sell real estate is at the core of what we do, our company and our agents are known for playing a much bigger role in the community. 

Most of our agents were born and raised within 30 miles of Iowa City and pride themselves on being part of the fabric of the community. 

That’s why you’ll see them handing out free bags at the farmers market, ringing the Salvation Army bell during the holidays, cheering on the Hawkeyes, performing in local productions, riding bikes to raise money, supporting area schools, and serving various other community organizations. 

The Oil in Our Well-Oiled Machine
