Our story starts in 1947 – a year of many firsts.

Jackie Robinson took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers as the first African American player in Major League Baseball. The classic holiday film Miracle on 34th Street premiered in theaters. The Polaroid Land Camera was first demonstrated in New York.

In the heart of America, a small company with big dreams to serve the community with quality and value was born. That company, founded by Erick and Roy Skogman, was Skogman Homes.

Today the name Skogman means homes – and so much more. Beyond Skogman Homes, the Skogman family of companies includes:

  • Skogman Insurance: focused on lasting relationships and a level of service only available through an independent insurance agency.
  • Skogman Realty: the Corridor's top real estate company both in terms of annual volume and number of professional real estate agents.
  • Skogman Commercial Group: a dominant force in the sale and leasing of commercial properties, land development, income properties and businesses in Cedar Rapids, Marion, Iowa City, and the surrounding areas.
  • D&B Remodeling: a full service commercial and residential remodeling company serving Cedar Rapids and surrounding Iowa communities.
  • Pheasant Run Apartments: large, highly desirable apartments in Southwest Cedar Rapids with amenities including a swimming pool, basketball courts, playground, picnic area, and clubhouse.
  • Hidden Creek Apartments and Storage: a luxury apartment property including 86 self-serve storage garages.

The path to the array of services and locations Skogman offers today has been steady, thanks to five generations of family members proud to serve the community.

The '60s and '70s

Following twelve years of growth as Skogman Homes, the business entered the '60s with a desire to meet the needs of the community through expended services. In 1965, Skogman Insurance was formed to offer peace of mind through home, auto and business insurance for Iowa residents in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and beyond.

The Skogman brand continued its momentum in the '70s. Skogman Realty launched in 1973, growing to include offices in the communities of Hiawatha and Marion, and is now the predominately recognized real estate company in the marketplace.

In 1974, Pheasant Run Apartments were built in Southwest Cedar Rapids with amenities including a swimming pool, playground, volleyball, picnic area, and clubhouse.

The '80s

With business development on the rise, Skogman Companies launched Skogman Commercial Group in 1988 – becoming a dominant force in the sale and leasing of commercial properties, land development, income properties and businesses in Cedar Rapids, Marion, Iowa City and surrounding areas. With 24 full-time agents, they quickly became market leaders – capturing almost 50% of the market share.

The 2000's

With success in the Corridor firmly established, Skogman Homes expanded into Cedar Falls and surrounding communities to offer construction of quality-built homes to the growing communities in 2003.

Expansion followed into 2009 as Skogman Realty extended its presence in the eastern Iowa Corridor with an office in Coralville, serving the Johnson County area.

By 2017, Skogman Companies was able to acquire D&B Remodeling, a full-service commercial and residential remodeling company.

2022 and beyond

Since its birth in 1947, Skogman Homes has not only grown into one of the largest builders in Iowa, but its reputation of excellent quality and great neighborhoods has established our company as the builder providing the best home value in the Midwest.

We owe our success and growth to the hundreds of past and present employees who have helped build Skogman Companies and each of its divisions into highly regarded members of the Corridor's business community.

We thank you for giving us the opportunity to welcome you home for the last 75 years and look forward to welcoming you home for many years to come.
