Why Des Moines?

About 4 years ago, Des Moines won the 2010 Forbes ranking as the "Best Place for Business", and was said to be #1 for "America's Best Cities for Young Professionals" in 2011. So it's easy to see why Des Moines, Iowa is the most populous city in the state, Iowa's capital city, and plays an important part in Presidential politics during the Iowa caucuses on election years.

Ours is a major area for the insurance industry and several large financial corporations. The railroads started the city's growth after the civil war, and a near 50 years of coal mining added to its expansion. Several floods have kept the city renewed, and in the 2000's, we have seen major reconstruction in the downtown areas, with libraries, a scenic riverwalk, fountains, gardens, and many buildings renovated into elegant Des Moines condos and loft apartments. An annexation of over 5000 acres in three of its four corners added almost a thousand new residents to the population. Des Moines' suburban communities include AnkenyWest Des Moines, Urbandale and many more that you can find out more about right here on our site. 

The city is also a cultural mecca for the state, with museums, Broadway shows, the Des Moines Metro Opera, and even frequent Symphony performances adding to its allure. If you haven't stopped by to walk around the Pappajohn Sculpture Park downtown be sure to stop by as you sure to see some pretty creative Des Moines artwork. Overall, the many career opportunities, low crime rate, arts and theatrical venues, and educational opportunities make this area a really great place to live and work!

As more people move to our city and as the economy rebounds the housing demand will only increase. That's what we are here for. So whether you are looking for a regular home, condo, or even a foreclosure,our website will make choosing a place to call home fun and exciting for you. We are here to answer any questions and even help arrange private tours when needed, so we hope you enjoy and good luck on your home search!
