Jan Crosby, REALTOR®

The Composer

Though real estate is her passion, this agent prefers to think of herself as a counselor or teacher rather than a salesperson. Jan is in tune with her clients’ needs and lends her knowledge to making the buying and selling experience positive. Jan grew up in central Missouri, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration and an MBA. She started her career in healthcare and was involved in product development and project management. In the late 80s, Jan moved to Kansas City, where she met her husband Greg. Jan and Greg moved to Iowa City in 2002 as part of a corporate relocation process, and they decided to stay and plant their roots to raise their son Josh. Then in 2007, Jan earned her real estate license.

Jan loves interacting with older adults and has worked with the geriatric community for many years. In her free time, she also enjoys volunteering with local nonprofits, gardening, traveling, and playing piano. Jan volunteers with her church, 100+ Women Who Care, The Greater Iowa City Area Home Builders Association, 5224Good, CommUnity Crisis Services, Professional Women in Building, and Houses into Homes. Her next goal is to tour the country and watch a baseball game in every MLB ballpark.

“Jan is so knowledgeable. We worked with her to buy our first home and then chose to work with her again to sell our home. She is so full of knowledge and makes the whole process less overwhelming. We couldn't have asked for a better result! I would highly recommend to anyone buying or selling a home in Iowa City to work with Jan.””

— Danie C.

“We recently sold our primary residence with Jan's help. She guided us through the entire process. Generously answering questions, patiently dealing with the buyer, and always providing prompt service. Jan expertly staged our home, which enabled buyers to see the home’s full potential. Jan's contact list may be one of her most valuable assets, and the pre-sale work we had done on the house was completed in a professional and timely fashion.”

— James S.
