About Us

 

Gwen Johnson - Gwen Johnson will have twenty years of real estate experience in 2016.  She is in the top ten realtors in the corridor area well over a decade.  She believes in the TEAM approach to real estate, with a TEAM of seasoned professionals providing quality and extensive services to clients. She loves what she does, she loves who she works with, and that translates to loving her clients.  She is committed to provide state of the art services and systems with cutting edge service.  Personally, Gwen was born and raised in Iowa.  Hard work, family and a commitment to her community are a cornerstone to her work ethic.  

Courtney Ressler- is originally from the Cedar Rapids area, moving to North Liberty in 2000. After working in the mortgage industry for 7 years and then for a real estate appraiser, Courtney made the transition to real estate in 2009 when the Skogman Realty Coralville office opened as the office manager. Since then, Courtney has become a licensed agent and has been working in both residential and commercial real estate. Growing up in the Cedar Rapids area, then moving to the Corridor has helped Courtney in knowing both markets. And with a background in both finance and appraising, Courtney can assist both buyers and sellers in whatever needs they may have.


John Hall - is the newest member of the Johnson Team. John is originally from northeast Iowa, and came to Iowa City to attend the University of Iowa. After receiving his degree in Anthropology, with an emphasis in archaeology, he worked in the University of Iowa’s Office of the State Archaeologist, and later transitioned to the UI Admissions office. After 10+ years at the University of Iowa he decided to follow his interest in real estate and join the Johnson Team.
Utilizing the experience he gained in helping students transition to the area, paired with his familiarity of the corridor’s neighborhoods and schools, John can assist buyers and sellers with their move, both into the area and across town.


Carrie Mulford– moved to Iowa City in 2001 to attend the University of Iowa where she graduated with a degree in Psychology and Business Management.  While in school, she worked for Gap Inc. for 5 years and gained an interest in Real Estate and joined the Gwen Johnson Team as office manager in 2006.  With her degree background, she is delighted to help buyers and sellers make their transition as smooth as possible.  Carrie is glad to be working with such a great Team and looks forward to working with you.

 

Kelly Schnoebelen- started her career in Real Estate as a Closing Administrator in 2003 and after 8 years, transitioned into the Mortgage Industry as a Loan Processor.  She realized then that ”hands on” real estate was what she truly enjoyed and joined the Johnson Team in early 2013 as the Client Coordinator Manager.   With a wide knowledge base, Kelly is excited to be another strong asset to the Team and to assist buyers and sellers in their real estate transactions and beyond.

Ron Heck–  is the “Sign Man” for the Gwen Johnson Team, he has worked with Gwen for the past 9 years.  An Iowa City/Coralville resident for the past 30 years, Ron brings his familiar knowledge of the area to the team.  Ron has a commercial drivers license and has worked many years as a successful Dairyman and as an Iowa City School Bus Driver.  We feel lucky to have Ron out and about to be the “eyes and ears” of the Team.

The Gwen Johnson team is fantastic! They helped us sell our house and purchase our new house in a VERY short timeline. They have a clean & effective process and the team does good business. They helped us before, during, and after our closing and cared about our happiness throughout the process. I highly recommend Gwen as a residential realtor!

– Sam, June 2017

Gwen and her team made the process of selling our home so much smoother than we could have imagined. They worked seamlessly with us and the buyers to make it happen on the best terms possible. If you are looking for a realtor to help you buy or sell your home- do not go with anyone else in the area, you will not regret it. I can’t say enough positive about Gwen Johnson and her team – Thank You for helping sell our home!

– Devin and Shilo, November 2016

was very impressed with all aspects of the Gwen Johnson team. The team was very professional yet personable, responsive to my requests and thorough in their work. Selling my house seemed very seamless and streamlined. I appreciated their efforts in selling my house in such a timely manner. They took the stress of selling my home off my shoulders which was greatly appreciated.

– Monica, November 2016

Gwen and her team are seriously the best in every way! Always available for questions and was quick to reply to phone calls and emails. Worked hard to find us exactly what we wanted and needed.

– Nate and Amy, November 2016

The team at Skogman was great. They worked quickly with us to find us the perfect house, and at the price we wanted. It took us a few months, and they were there every step of the way. If the main person working with us wasn’t available, she made sure she got somebody else out to help us. They provided information to us on the areas, prices, and potential issues with the house. We miraculously closed within 30 days. Everybody was pleasant throughout the entire experience.

– Ashley, November 2016

Gwen and her team all together were fantastic as we bought our condo. They know the area well and always respond very quickly. I will be using them to sell this place once the time comes. I recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Iowa City area.

– Levi and Julie, November 2016

Gwen Johnson is a dedicated knowledgeable professional who takes her work very serious. Once she knows the type of home you are interested in, she will find you your dream home. My husband and I have used her expertise for the last 14 years with 3 different properties, she sold 2 and one is on the market. We will continue recommending her to our family and friends. If Gwen Johnson is your Real estate Specialist, you are on a winning team, she is very successful, very pleasant and she loves her profession.

– Myra and Michael, November 2016

They were the best team to work with. I moved into my new home in less than a month after I started looking. They exactly knew what I wanted and supported me all along the process.

– Jones, November 2016

Gwen is highly professional, punctual, very talented and organized. She is easy to work with and is an amazing person. We bought our first home with Gwen’s help nine years ago and this year we came back for her services to help us look for a property to build our dream house on! Happy to say, we just closed on our land purchase!

– Serg and Anna, November 2016

Courtney Ressler was extremely professional and helpful in our quest for a new home in North Liberty, Ia. She would always follow up with reports and answers to the questions we had. Gwen Johnson was also very helpful and considerate to our need and wants in a new home. I don’t think there is a better team i would want to represent me today or in the future in my real estate needs. Thanks for all your help team.

– Tom and Martina, November 2016

Gwen and her staff (specifically Courtney Ressler) are the most amazing and wonderful realtors to work with. They are truly working for their clients and demonstrate the utmost integrity and personal care in their interactions with their clients. My daughter and husband bought their first home with their help; it was absolutely perfect for their needs, in a lovely area and very affordable. Courtney guided them throughout this home hunting journey. The Johnson team provided all the necessary help they needed and walked them through all the legalities of buying a new home. I cannot say enough good things about this incredible team!!

– Smith, November 2016

Gwen and her team guided me through the process of selling with a professional and friendly style, I actually had some fun days!

Thanks to everyone on the Johnson team for working so smoothly together and for helping to keep my plans going forward.

– Joan, July 2016

“We searched Zillow for a few weeks and luckily one of our inquiries led us to Courtney! We met Courtney for a showing and we were in the process of meeting with her and interviewing other agents as well. I had an extensive list of questions and Courtney was spot on through the whole interview! The most important thing was that I truly felt I could trust her with handling my purchase. She was also phenomenal in negotiations and quick turn arounds in communicating as needed through out the process! You have secured a client as long as I’m in the Corridor and your have Courtney to thank for that!

We had a wonderful experience working with Gwen and her Team. It took us awhile to find the perfect house, but Gwen was very patient and always willing to see properties of all sorts. We truly appreciate how flexible she was with setting up times to meet since our schedules were hard to change. She was always on time and prepared. She was also very honest about pros and cons of each place. We could never have gotten such a great place without Gwen. We cannot thank you enough!

Gwen is nothing less than fabulous. There were days during this process that nearly her entire day was devoted to the purchase of this home. She spent many nights with us, also she went the extra mile in order for us to close on this home. She was faced with short time restraints, inflexible builders an buyers with plenty of restraints. Gwen was able to get on answering every question and a solution for every problem, even if it was at her expense. Gwen worked toward that final goal, even when we were ready to throw in the towel. She understood our circumstances and worked within the constraints. This process was exhausting for everyone, but she pushed is all on to make it happen. She never gives up! Thanks for all you did!

"We wouldn't go with any other agent in the Eastern Iowa Area. Gwen was our agent when we initially moved to Coralville and she did such an amazing job that there was no question who we'd go with as our selling agent when it came time to sell. Her entire team is fabulous, helpful, friendly, insightful, knowledgable and great to work with. I'm sure there are other good agents in the area, but you'll never regret making the decision to go with the Gwen Johnson team as your representative, we didn't. Thanks Gwen and team for all your help."
