Graf Real Estate

The Graf Home Selling Team & Associates, based in Hiawatha, has affiliated with the ERA Real Estate brand.

Graf Real Estate serves the greater Cedar Rapids area, including the cities of Marion and Robins. Now known as Graf Real Estate ERA Powered, the company’s affiliated agents will continue to work with clients on residential sales and relocations. In addition, the ERA Powered flexible branding option gives companies a choice to leverage their local brand identity and benefit from ERA Real Estate’s suite of learning, marketing and servicing resources.

Graf Real Estate was originally established in 2012 by Michael and Teri Graf. In 2015, Michael was ranked in the top 25 real estate teams by transaction sides in RealTrends + Tom Ferry The Thousand.  Before his real estate career, Mr. Graf served in a sales management role with APAC Customer Services, providing customer care outsourcing solutions.

““Over the years, we have devoted significant resources toward marketing our unique value proposition, which is to serve the public with honesty and integrity and to give them a reason to keep coming back to us,” Mr. Graf said in a release. “As an ERA Powered company, we are now able to offer a greater level of service to consumers through powerful programs to help simplify the home buying and selling process. On the agent side, ERA’s robust professional development resources will complement our firm’s long-standing focus on agent training and allow our leadership team to also focus on business development efforts. Being a part of the ERA network will further differentiate us in the Cedar Rapids area. We are excited to continue our growth through this partnership.”

The greater Cedar Rapids area is quickly growing thanks to a wide array of work opportunities nearby, including large employers such as Transamerica, Collins Aerospace and Quaker Oats, all conveniently within driving distance in the city. Cedar Rapids also has a low cost of living, which is why it is currently a desirable market for relocation.

According to, the median home list price in Cedar Rapids is $173,000, while the median home list price for properties in Hiawatha is $205,000.
