Welcome! I am Deanna Howard, an experienced, no-pressure Realtor who works hard for her clients, often claiming them as family along the way.

I love finding the right home for my clients. I want them to love where they live.

I am licensed in the State of Iowa, working in Cedar Rapids, Marion, and surrounding areas, which includes all the smaller communities in Linn, Jones, and Benton counties.

I can help you find your starter, move-up, or dream home. I can also help you sell your current home, making a seamless transition into the next chapter of your life.

Thinking about a condo, but want to know a little bit more? Give me a call! If you are helping a loved one downsize or dealing with an estate, I can help with that, too! Thank you!

About Me

How I can help with your real estate needs


Customer focus

I take the time to know and understand my clients' needs. I don't want to find just any home for my buyers. I want to find that perfect fit.

My clients aren't just a number. I take the time to know who they are and their wants and needs, not only now, but five, ten years from now.

I know how important good customer service is. It’s why I became a Realtor myself. I wasn’t satisfied by the service I received and knew there had to be a better way. I am a no-pressure Realtor who will give my all finding that "just right" home for my clients.

On a more personal level...

Before venturing into real estate, I worked as an arts and entertainment writer covering events in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area. I am well versed in all there is to do and see.

An Iowa native, I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Drake University. I believe in giving back to the community. I volunteer with the Marion Chamber as an ambassador as well as Linn Mar Schools.

I am married and have three active sons.
