About Us 1

Mitch Coluzzi

Founder, Chief Disruptor of Industry

Mitch grew up surrounded by residential real estate and construction. He has been a licensed real estate professional for over 10 years. He founded his own independent brokerage in 2014 after settling down in Des Moines. Today, he focuses on improving communities one (or a few) houses at a time. Sell Now Iowa was designed to provide people with an easy solution to their housing headaches. For completed flips, Sell Now Iowa hosts a neighborhood party complete with free food, a bounce house, and good conversation. “It’s a fun way to engage people and remind the team that we do it for the community rather than the dollars,” says Mitch.

With a track record of honest and successful business practices, Mitch has grown into a respected expert in the local market. His largest project was the 21 unit apartment building that was (fully and completely!) remodeled and recently sold to a one-of-a-kind investor who has the local connections to take the building from good to great.

If you’ve met Mitch personally you may have noticed that real estate is both his profession and hobby, but he also enjoys spending time with his wife and two (almost three!) kiddos.
