Shaner Magalhães

Shaner Magalhães, REALTOR®, CNE, AHWD

The Triple Threat

Between his work as a REALTOR®, a long-time volunteer in the community and in the real estate industry, and a constant adventure seeker, Shaner is a force to be reckoned with. It’s why we call him a triple threat!

Shaner fell in love with the Iowa City area while earning his BBA and MBA from the University of Iowa. He jumped into the world of real estate in 2010, combining his background in business and management with his large community network to give his clients an excellent buying and selling experience.

Over the years, Shaner has made himself an essential part of the Corridor and statewide real estate scene, serving as the president of several state and local real estate organizations. He also went above and beyond in his education, earning his CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert) and AHWD (At Home with Diversity) designations from the National Association of REALTORS®. 

Shaner gets involved in the community outside of real estate, too. Over the years, he has served on the Board of Directors for the Summer of the Arts, the Iowa City Public Library, the Iowa Finance Authority, the Iowa Cultural Corridor Alliance, and the Coralville Public Library, to name a few. 

Shaner’s passion for community is rivaled only by his love for adventure. He enjoys hiking, playing board and card games, and generally just hanging out with his wife, Barbara, and their three adult children.

What Clients Say About Shaner Magalhães

“We were very pleased by Shaner’s professionalism in helping us to sell our two rental properties. He truly made the process smooth and easy. We were concerned that selling these houses during the coronavirus pandemic would be quite a challenge, but Shaner handled the marketing and all the details related to the transaction without any problems, and made the closing as secure as it could be for us. Shaner is a true professional, and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great REALTOR® to help sell or buy a house. ”

— Jean & Renee Robillard

“I really appreciated all of Shaner’s assistance with preparing my house to sell and getting it under contract in less than 24 hours (and at above the list price)! And then Shaner made it a breeze for someone like me that was long distance and new to selling a house by smoothly taking care of all the steps to get to the closing. I highly recommend Shaner to anyone needing to list their home! ”

— Jeffry Ray

“Shaner did a great job for me last year with listing and selling my commercial property. He was readily available to answer questions and meet to discuss strategies and solutions to help get our building sold at the best possible price. I never felt pressured by Shaner and felt that he truly had my best interests in mind. Shaner explained things well and I always felt like the decisions I made were MY decisions. Even though I know he had other properties to sell, I felt as if Shaner was giving my property his full attention. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shaner to anyone who wants a property sold by a very trustworthy professional. ”

— Pam Miller-DeKeyser

“As first-time home buyers we were very nervous about the whole process. Our nerves quickly went away when we first met with Shaner! After one visit with him, he knew exactly what type of home we were looking for and was able to show us homes that were not only what we envisioned for ourselves, but also in our price range! On top of all that, he was very knowledgeable about each area the homes were in. Shaner was always available by phone or email to answer all our questions and always found time on short notice to show us a house, and because of that we were able to find the perfect home for us in just 3 days! ”

— Eric Brown & Surbhi Jain

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Shaner when my wife and I needed to relocate to the Iowa City area. His experience and dedication to his clients showed throughout the entire process. We flew in from the east coast on short notice and had a very narrow timeframe available in which we wanted to see as many houses as possible and ultimately put an offer in by the end. Shaner understood this and graciously spent most of his weekend driving us around to see 20+ houses. His experience really showed, making it a very efficient process as he seemed to know exactly what we were looking for. His knowledge of the area was also very useful and appreciated. After the offer was accepted, he was very communicative about the next steps in the process. We would absolutely recommend Shaner, he made what is typically a very stressful and overwhelming process quite enjoyable! ”

Urban or Acres?

I am urban at heart. I love being out in nature, but mainly to enjoy a hike before returning to the comforts of home (in the city). Besides, there aren’t any pizza places out in the middle of a field or forest!

  • Specializations: Residential and Commercial
  • Languages: English, as well as some Spanish and Portuguese
  • Favorite Iowa City Establishment: Wig 'n Pen and Pagliai's. Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE pizza! 
  • Recognitions: ICAAR Distinguished Service Award (2018); ICAAR Gold Star Award; IAR Outstanding Advocate Award (2019)
  • Best Part of Iowa: I actually enjoy the change of seasons (even winter). I also really appreciate the amazing friendliness of Iowans. And even though Iowa has a reputation of being flat and boring, there are lots of cool places to visit (especially pursuing my family's passion for hiking).
  • Community Involvement: Summer of the Arts Board of Directors; Coralville Public Library Board of Directors; Iowa Association of REALTORS® President-Elect; member of the Iowa City Noon Rotary Club; former member of the Old Capitol Kiwanis Club; former President of Iowa City Area Association of REALTORS® (2014-2015)
  • One Thing you’d Never Guess: In January of 2022, I ate pizza every day for a whole month as my New Year’s resolution. It’s my personal record!
