Your Iowa Great Lakes Real Estate Experts

When you hire Hoien Realty to take care of your real estate business, you’re not only hiring us now but also the 65 years of experience that we’ve established in the Iowa Great Lakes region. Having started the agency in 1952, Blaine Hoien pioneered the agency based on three principles: trust, knowledge, and genuine care and concerned for each and every client. Our goal at Hoien Realty is to help you achieve your goals in Iowa Great Lakes real estate.

Eric Hoien joined the Hoien Realty family in 1984, so with his 30 plus years of experience, he’s seen almost every real estate challenge or situation that there is. With those years of experience and learning, Hoien Realty can solve a problem, usually before it even occurs, while many less-seasoned agencies are just trying to figure out what is going on.

Eric and his team have seen almost every type of market that there is, and sometimes more than once. Whether it’s a hot seller’s market, a cold buyer’s market, a depreciating market, or an appreciating market, we’ve been through them all. As a result, instead of trying to resist the market, we’ve learned how to respond to the market each year.

Sellers' Representation

Selling a house on your own can be an overwhelming task.

But you can make it easy on yourself by putting your home in the hands of our seasoned professionals. At Hoien Realty, we've been experts in our industry since 1952. We have extensive experience marketing properties and showing them to their best advantage.

To begin this process, our team at Hoien Realty will perform a comparable market analysis to determine the most appropriate price for your Iowa Great Lakes home. Then we'll provide professional home staging advice and suggest landscaping changes that will help draw buyers in. We'll advertise your home through a variety of methods, including local publications and online MLS® listings. We may even showcase your home as part of our site's Featured Listings.

When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, we'll make sure that you get the best possible price the market will allow. We'll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork for you.
