About the Cedar Rapids Office:

Located in the heart of Downtown Cedar Rapids and alongside the Cedar River, the city is full of life and also, uniquely, five seasons! Like all other cities in Iowa and beyond, we experience fall, winter, summer and spring, but our fifth season affords us the time and ability to enjoy all other seasons and thus life. We are often called The City of Five Seasons and you can find that this identity is deeply woven into the community of the City of Cedar Rapids.

The view from our newly renovated office in the historic Armstrong Building is vast and wide, allowing us clear viewings of the city and its famous sunsets. Locally owned coffee shops, restaurants, theaters, stores and nightlife hubs are sprinkled everywhere, both near and far, offering lots to do at anytime. We are accompanied by several Fortune 500 corporations in our area, including Collins Aerospace (formerly Rockwell Collins), Casey’s General Store and Principal Financial Group; it’s not all about big businesses here though. 

Our Cedar Rapids office is in Downtown Cedar Rapids, which is Iowa’s second largest city and is undergoing incredible revitalization. You can check out the world class gallery at Legion Arts, take in a concert at the McGrath Amphitheater, watch a play at Theatre Cedar Rapids , and much more all within walking distance of our office.
