History

Jerry Hegtvedt (Broker/Owner/Auctioneer) 

Founded Cedar Valley Iowa Realty in 2004 and Cedar Valley Auction Company in 2008 in Charles City, Iowa.  Our services continue to be independently owned and operated in our communities and have expanded with offices in New Hampton and most recently in Decorah!  Jerry's Father, Edwin Hegtvedt, was raised North of Decorah, so expanding to our Decorah community is exciting and meaningful to Jerry and his Family.
