About Us | Sell Now Iowa

Mitch Coluzzi

Founder, Catalyst

Mitch grew up surrounded by residential real estate and construction. He has been a licensed real estate professional for over 10 years. 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 three daughters (yes, THREE girls!!).

Jen Lambert

Chief Operating Officer

Originally from Northwest Indiana, Jen moved to Des Moines 2014 and quickly fell in love with Iowa. After earning a bachelor’s in Marketing (Direct and Interactive track) from Drake University, she began her career at Coluzzi Real Estate. She has had the privilege of watching the team grow and specialize to finally form Sell Now Iowa where she handles company forecasting as well as all things paperwork.

She currently lives near downtown Des Moines with her husband, Jon, and two cats, Stanley and Doug. Stanley was adopted in the traditional manner while Doug was found cold and alone on one of our job sites. Bob rescued him and after a short stint as an office cat, he is now comfortably settled in at Jen’s house.
