Rachel Barnes, CCIM

Rachel Barnes, an eight year veteran of Iowa City area commercial real estate sales and leasing has just earned the CCIM designation issued by the Commercial Investment Institute a sanctioned body of the National Association of Realtors.  The Realtors CCIM designation is the “gold standard” for commercial real estate excellence in the world.  Out of the 997,148 real estate agents in the United States, just 13,000 of them hold the CCIM designation.  There are now just four CCIM designees in Johnson County, Iowa.

The course of study involves several week long core courses with a comprehensive final exam.  There are also rigorous commercial real estate experience requirements of designees.  The course of study covers graduate level discounted cash flow and investment analysis, site selection, demographic analysis, marketing, business practice and ethics components.  Investors seeking the highest degree of expertise, experience and ethical standards look for CCIM designees!

Congratulations, Rachel Barnes, CCIM for earning this high distinction!

Nationwide Open House Weekend was a Success!

Open Houses are just one way to get your property exposure in the market.  

Don't wait for an open house on specific listing, you can contact an LKR agent and they can setup a individual showing on any home that is active and available for sale. 

We had over 70 Open Houses this last weekend in Iowa City, North Liberty, Coralville and surrounding areas.  You can see our open houses weekly via our website at and in our weekly publication - "LKR Advantage" which can be viewed electronically or in the Saturday Press Citizen paper.

Thanks to all who made Nationwide Open House weekend a success!
