Jane Axt


The Producer

From a young age, Jane knew homes were more than lumber and screws. She was determined to save vacant, poorly maintained homes from their slide into history and to restore dignity and joy to the home and those who lived there. 

As a REALTOR® with 20+ years of experience in the Iowa City-Cedar Rapids Corridor, Jane finds great satisfaction in matching people to their perfect homes and sharing the excitement of home ownership. As part of the Tia + Jane team, she loves guiding buyers and sellers through the process and educating along the way. 

Though she came to the area to work on her masters in public affairs (city management/law), Jane fell in love with the people and their commitment to the community. Now she’s a Hawkeye for life! 

Considering a new construction home? Jane grew up in a construction family and managed the process of building a home for her family. She also builds with Affinity Homes, incorporating green principles of energy efficiency, low VOC materials, and minimum maintenance. She’s passionate about green home design and eco-landscaping and would love to help!

 Jane also enjoys DIY projects, gardening, and educating. She’s always ready to consult on your next home project.

What Clients Say About Jane Axt

“Jane was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about the home buying process, but was able to explain every step in a way that made sense to us as first-time homebuyers. What could have been a very stressful ordeal was actually fun! Jane was so patient as we figured out which house was right for us and never made us feel like we were wasting her time with the many visits. She also cares about what happens after closing and makes it a point to ensure any future projects are as headache-free as possible. Seriously, I almost wish I needed to buy another house just to work more with Jane. Best. REALTOR®. Ever.”

— April Burgess

“My family was relocating from across the country and we needed a lot of help in finding and completing our home purchase. Jane spent countless hours working with me on the phone and setting up viewings on a compressed schedule. Jane helped me find the right mortgage, inspectors, and all the other odds and ends you need to do when buying a home. It was obvious that Jane always had our best interests at heart and truly enjoys helping people find their new home and community. If you are relocating to the Iowa City area, you should look no further than Jane Axt and if you already are in Iowa City, I cannot imagine a better agent to work with. Thank you Jane!”

— Noemi Ford
