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. Jenna Poch has lived in the Iowa City and surrounding area for 23 years making her familiar with the many Corridor communities. Prior to becoming a REALTOR she spent 12 years as a nurse taking care of pediatrics, seniors, and managing various health care facilities. This experience gave her a passion for service, connecting with and caring for her community, providing loyalty, dedication, and outstanding client service. When Jenna isn’t making property ownership dreams come true she enjoys teaching group fitness and barre classes as well as spending time with her son, Ethan, and their dog, Lady. Heather Hershberger is originally from Cedar Rapids, moving to the Corridor area in 2005. She currently resides in North Liberty with her husband, Austin, their two children, Maxwell and Phoenix, and their Lab, Ike.
