I absolutely love the Iowa City-Cedar Rapids Corridor area! And I want to use my passion for, and knowledge of, the Corridor communities to assist you with all of your real estate needs.

I am one of those classic cases of someone that came to the University of Iowa, got a couple degrees, and loved the area so much that I never left (well, almost). After earning a BBA and MBA from the UI, I worked in state government for over 10 years, owned a business for 3 years, and ran a nonprofit organization for another 3 years.

With my dedication to running my own business, my experience and education in management and marketing, and an extensive network of contacts from my years of active involvement in dozens of organizations and events, I decided in 2006 to pursue working in real estate on a part-time basis.

In May 2010, I made the leap into real estate full-time when I joined the Skogman Realty team in our new office in Coralville. Equipped with the amazing resources provided by Skogman (everything from the most cutting edge website to the most extensive traditional marketing and advertising), I have been pleased to assist even more people with their real estate needs. It truly is a wonderful experience to help clients get great results no matter what their circumstances might be.

I would be very excited to have the opportunity to talk with you – whether you’re buying or selling a home, or just want to weigh your options for a future move. Feel free to call, e-mail, or text me anytime.

Being first time home buyers we were pretty clueless – but Shaner helped us every step of the way. He listened to our wishes for a home and showed us great options. When we decided to pull the trigger and go for it he made the process very easy. As someone coming from out of state he suggested great neighborhoods and areas, as well as a local bank familiar with my situation and financing options. Shaner helped assist us in getting everything in order prior to closing, which was important since we were not in town on the day of closing. We had a very smooth home-buying experience and know if we were to look to buy in this area again, Shaner would be our first call.

During our first meeting, I asked Shaner about the potential time frame for selling my house. He said the bare minimum from listing to close would be six weeks. We closed in 5 weeks and 6 days! I attribute this quick turnaround largely to Shaner’s excellent marketing and community networking. The photographs in his marketing materials were stunning, and his narrative description of the house was spot-on. However, I think it was the behind-the-scenes work Shaner did that expedited the process. In the weeks prior to listing, Shaner generated anticipation and enthusiasm among his network of Realtor colleagues. He had interested buyers lining up for a viewing just moments after the listing went live. This was my first home sale, and I was anxious about the process. Shaner always patiently answered my emails and texts within a couple of hours. I was particularly nervous about the listing price. I’d done considerable renovations on the house, and I believed the market value was significantly greater than the assessed value. However, I worried potential buyers would see the assessed value and walk away. Shaner eased my concerns though – and we ultimately sold the house for the exact amount I was seeking. I connected with Shaner after asking a family friend who’s a top Realtor in Des Moines to recommend a Realtor in the corridor. Her immediate response was, “The best guy around is Shaner Magalhaes at Skogman Realty in Iowa City.” I agree wholeheartedly! I’d recommend Shaner without reservations to anyone seeking a Realtor in the corridor.

I had an excellent experience working with Shaner on the purchase of my condo. It was my second home purchase and he made the process as effortless as possible. He was very flexible with showing the place and is extremely knowledgeable about the area and market. Shaner seemed genuinely interested in making sure I was aware of everything in the process and that I had a positive experience; he gave great advice and insight. I'd highly recommend him.

We worked with Shaner from Skogman Realty when we were looking for a home in Coralville and he did such a wonderful job for us! We were moving from Chicago and had limited time to come out to Iowa and look at houses, in addition to a fairly tight move in schedule. Shaner did a great job of sending us listings to review that aligned with what we were looking for in our future home. On the day we drove out to meet with him, he had 10 showings lined up for us and all of them were great options. We found a home that we loved and he worked to get our offer submitted. We couldn't be happier with our new location and the REALTOR® who helped us find our loving home! To anyone looking for a home in the Iowa City/Coralville area, Shaner is a great REALTOR® to work with and I would highly recommend him, especially if you are from out of town like we were. We will definitely be working with him again in the future.

My wife and I enjoyed working with Shaner to find our new home. We were new to the area and Shaner not only showed us around the houses but also around the city. Although we do blame him for adding a few inches to our waist line by telling us to try Heyn's ice cream, because now we can't stop eating there. He listened to us about the kind of house and area we were interested in and showed us lots of houses that fit what we were looking for. We would be happy to recommend Shaner to anyone else in the area looking for a real estate agent.

Shaner Magalhães came highly recommended to us from a mutual friend to assist us with purchasing our first home. We had heard from friends and family how stressful and overwhelming the whole process can be but that was not the case for us. Shaner made the entire process painless and actually kind of fun. He is incredibly easy to work with and really goes above and beyond in every way. Shaner answered our questions as they came up (which was frequently) and really made us feel like we were his number one clients. He gave us all the information we needed in regard to what things we should look for and what we should expect during the home buying process, as well as helpful information as new home owners. Even after we closed and moved into our new home, Shaner was very helpful with our questions as they came up. Because of Shaner, we found our dream home just in time for us to start a family. We recommend Shaner to anyone who wants their home buying experience to be fun, stress-free and successful. He is really a great guy!

We had a wonderful experience working with Shaner! We were first-time home buyers searching during the busiest time of the year. We only had one weekend we were able to make the trip out to house hunt and we knew we had to find a house during our time in Iowa. Leading up to our trip, Shaner was great about sending us listings, keeping us updated as houses sold or came on the market, and helping us narrow down exactly what we wanted in a house. When we found a house we loved he went and even did a video walk thru of the house since we were unable to fly out for another week. Our house hunting day was smooth and painless and we ended up buying the second house we saw. Buying our first home was stressful and nerve-wracking, however Shaner made sure every question was answered and he was very knowledgeable about the area. We adore the house we bought and could not have done it without him.

As an out-of-state first-time home buyer, I found Shaner to be very knowledgeable and accessible via email and phone. He did a great job setting up a lot of house showings for me when I could make it to Iowa City for a weekend, and when I didn’t see anything I liked he continued to work with me and send me more tailored listings. I ended up buying sight unseen after Shaner went and viewed the house on my behalf. I felt very confident in his account of the house and was very happy when I finally got to see it in person. I would highly recommend Shaner for his accessibility, thoroughness, and knowledge of the housing market.

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.

As first time home buyers we didn’t really know what we were doing or getting into for that matter. We were so lucky to know someone who recommended we get in touch with Shaner. From the very beginning we felt like he really prioritized our search and made himself available to be sure we were on the right track and knew what we needed to know for such an important step in our lives. If we had a question Shaner responded almost immediately with facts and information. He wasn’t just trying to make a quick sale; he listened to our needs and found us the perfect home based on what we wanted. If we said we didn’t like something Shaner immediately took note and we moved on. We never got the sense that he was trying to push us into a sale. Our happiness and satisfaction seemed important to him no matter how much time it took. We would recommend Shaner to everyone. He made the home buying process fun and enjoyable.

We worked with Shaner as our real estate agent during the spring of 2015 to sell our condo on the east side of Iowa City. We did not live in the area at the time and he made the process very easy on us from a long distance away. We found him to be very available, knowledgeable, and detail-oriented. We successfully sold our condo in a matter of weeks and for a very acceptable price. We would strongly recommend Shaner to anyone looking to sell a property of any kind in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids corridor.

Working with Shaner was a great experience. Coming from another state, we needed someone with a lot of knowledge and experience. That is what we found in Shaner. He researched everything we would want to know about the properties and did an amazing job of finding what we wanted. He spent several long weekends with us and we found our "dream house." He was so helpful from start to finish. We couldn't ask for a better Realtor.

Shaner really listened to my partner and I when it came to our property needs. He was kind and honest with us about every showing. He helped us find a great home and I would totally say hi to him if I saw him on the street!

As a first time home buyer, I think I lucked out on getting Shaner Magalhaes as my Realtor. He was incredibly helpful & resourceful. He was easy to work with and was able to answer all of my questions regarding a new house; what to look for, what to expect during the buying process and what sort of extra expenses and tax breaks I could expect. He was very perceptive and after just a few short outings he had a good idea of what kind of house I was looking for, which helped out a lot because although I spent a good deal of time house hunting on my own, he always knew where to go to find a house I hadn't seen listed. I would recommend Shaner to any home-buyer.

My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Shaner from Skogman Realty. He was an invaluable assest in helping us navigate the purchase of our first home. He was always available to answer our numerous questions about the process, helped us navigate the paperwork, and worked tirelessly to make sure we felt comfortable with the choices we made. In addition, he was extrememly easy to work with. His caring demeanor, laid-back and friendly personality as well as his genuine desire to be an advocate for us in buying our home set him apart from other Realtors in the area. We would highly recommend Shaner to those interested in buying a home.

When we started working with Shaner we were out of state. When my husband flew out to look at homes we only gave Shaner notice 2 days in advance. Shaner not only fit us in, but showed my husband a slew of homes and allowed him to use his office to call me to talk about the homes since I was not present for the showings. He then returned with my husband to two of the homes that we were deciding between and helped us video the homes so that I could help make the choice. Shaner was extremely attentive to our emails, phone calls and texts. He was also understanding and helpful when it came to our budget. He was personable, and down to earth. We really enjoyed working with Shaner and you will too!

I worked with Shaner during the months of March-May 2013, at which time he listed and sold my home on the east side of Iowa City. I am so happy I chose Shaner as my real estate agent. He went right to work and successfully sold my house in a matter of weeks! Shaner kept track of an enormous number of details, and greatly impressed me with his caring commitment to selling my home. He made himself available to me by cell phone, text, and in person, and we were in constant contact at times, even on weekends. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Shaner to anyone looking for an outstanding Realtor!

You never know what to expect when you are looking to buy a home, but luckily Shaner helped to walk us through it. Shaner took into account every need and desire of ours to give us a wide range of homes to choose from. There was no request too big or small for Shaner, and we appreciated his help throughout the whole process. While there is no plan to sell our home for a very long time, we definitely know who we will ask for if/when that time does come again.

For a first time home buyer like me, Shaner was instrumental in helping me feel comfortable with my home purchase. Shaner's laid- back, friendly, and informative approach helped me to feel at ease, and in control through the entire process. Not only was he helpful in these regards, he was also flexible about working with my schedule (which included quite a few late nights). Shaner is a dedicated REALTOR® with the experience, knowledge, and ability that helped me to get the best deal on a great first home! I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying a home.

Shaner helped me buy my first rental property. He was great at explaining the trials, risks, and rewards of being a landlord/manager. He was able to show me many different options and point out what could possibly be a concern or an asset to a purchase. Shaner was someone who was able to be there when other REALTORS® were not. He was a very dependable person - placing me and my partner first in the home buying process. I definitely see future buying adventures with Shaner. He is certainly someone that goes above and beyond a REALTORS® duty.

Shaner worked with me to buy my very first place. He was great at explaining the process to me as a first-time home buyer. He was able to show me many different options to help me narrow down what I was looking for and was very patient with me when I was trying to refine my search. Shaner was always respectful of the budget I had established and I felt that he really was trying to find something that I would love. He was great at keeping an eye out for new listings that might work for me and always answering my questions quickly. Shaner was able to find me a great first home and I was very happy with my experience in working with him.

We had the pleasure to work with Shaner from Skogman Realty and had an invaluable experience as first-time home buyers. He is very professional, easy to work with, provided a wealth of knowledge for our many house questions, would get back to us promptly and go above and beyond what would be expected from a Realtor. Shaner was also very detailed and supportive from start to finish in the decision-making and purchasing process which made us feel very comfortable when it came to purchasing time. For example, we had put our first offer on a house and began countering and did not feel 100% comfortable at the time to accept the counters and conditions. During that time we did not feel pressured or persuaded at any time to purchase. However, we were given great recommendations by Shaner that eventually landed us in a different house that better suited our needs. Working with Shaner was a great experience from start to finish and I would highly recommend him as a Realtor.

I really enjoyed working with Shaner and appreciated his laid-back style. I felt that I was able to make my own choices and got what I wanted, but Shaner was there helping me every step of the way. I haven't moved in yet but I can't wait! I love the place already.

We were so thankful that Shaner answered the phone the day we called Skogman Realty. He was such a breath of fresh air. Shaner's positive attitude and enthusiasm were contagious. Even though our house had been listed with a different agency for several months, Shaner walked through the house and came up with several ideas on how to make it show better. Asking us to write a letter about why we loved our home was a great way for potential buyers to get a glimpse into the possibilities for them. Since we were out of the state and all of our correspondence was through e-mails and phone calls, Shaner's attention to detail and prompt response to all our questions was so reassuring. We will highly recommend Shaner to anyone we know who is looking for a Realtor.

Shaner sold my house in record time and with absolute professionalism throughout the process! He was very efficient, organized, and effective in all aspects of the transaction, and truly exceeded my highest expectations. I plan to refer to Shaner anyone I know that plans to buy or sell a house or business in the Corridor area.

Shaner was an excellent agent for us. We were first time home buyers and knew nothing. His guidance and research absolutley saved our lives. There was never any pressure to make an offer or even look at homes we were not interested in. When we did make an offer, he walked us through the process and made sure we felt comfortable with what we were doing. When the offer was accepted, he was there again to explain all the steps involved. After we closed and moved in - he was still checking in on us and providing guidance. We highly recommend him and have recommended him to family that might be moving to the area.

I am admittedly a very particular person - especially in regard to buying a house - but Shaner made the process very stress-free. He did a wonderful job of helping me evaluate and compare properties, and Shaner asked lots of great questions in order to get me to think more thoroughly about my wants vs. needs. Quite simply, Shaner was very easy to work with, and did a great job for me.
