About Us

Peoples Company is a leading provider of land brokerage, land management, land investment and appraisal services in 20 states throughout the U.S.

Peoples Company’s proud history began in the 1960s and was established in the farm management department of Peoples Trust and Savings Bank in Indianola, Iowa.

In 1972, the farm management department and real estate brokerage separated from the bank into what is now known as Peoples Company. In 2002, the current ownership team acquired the majority interest of the company and began building the foundation for the organization we are today and the future growth of the Peoples Company brand.

In 2008, Peoples Company launched the first annual Land Investment Expo – a premier conference bringing together major players in the land business and featuring high-profile speakers such as Jim Rogers, T. Boone Pickens, and Donald Trump. The Land Investment Expo is the cornerstone of the company’s marketing efforts and has positioned Peoples Company as one of the leading brokerages in the country. Peoples Company strives to recruit and retain the best people in the land business, and as such, the company has consistently been named a “Top Brokerage in America” and a “Top 30 Auction House” by The Land Report, an industry-leading publication targeted toward the American landowner.

With an industry-leading website, a cohesive team of land professionals, and aggressive marketing strategies proven to drive land sales, Peoples Company has become a top agricultural real estate services firm holding licenses in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin.
