We are Iowans supporting Iowans and it makes us proud to know that local businesses are committed to using local banks and ensuring that the money earned in Iowa gets reinvested in Iowa.” – Corey Kautz, Owner, Greenland Homes “I was born and raised in the Des Moines area and love supporting local restaurants, events and artists. Des Moines and each surrounding community has so much to offer and is constantly growing! I believe a community doesn’t grow and succeed without local businesses. Staying local is always my first choice!” – Tammy Heckart, Realtor We’re so excited to get started!
