About Steve Manary

Born in Iowa City Iowa, lived there until moving into the country just outside of Solon in the mid 90”s.  My wife Linda and I then moved into a new home in North Liberty Iowa where we have now resided since 2007.  Linda and I will celebrate our 45th year of marriage in June of 2015.   We have a son Corey  and a daughter Jaime who have blessed us with 3 grandsons and a granddaughter.  The grandkids keep us going as they are busy with all of their sports activities plus the fact we fish and hunt also.   Since my youth I was always interested in architectural design, drafting and engineering.  I attended EICC, Kirkwood and the U of I pursuing those fields.  That background helped me in the designing and selling of over 200 homes while running my business in the corridor area.   Before being a contractor, I worked  in several sporting goods stores and also ran my own tool company.  I have been in the business of serving people for most of my working career and it just made sense to come to work for Skogman.  By the designing, building and selling of both homes and commercial buildings I believe I can better assist my clients when they are looking to buy a house, lease a property or build. Being an avid outdoorsman I also have a good feel for land, both as agricultural and recreational use and have helped folks in the purchase and use of their ground.  Along with the hobbies of watching my grandkids I also have been an active trap shooter for over 40 years, have served on several boards of different gun clubs, been a director and am a life member of the Iowa State Trapshooting Association, designed and built the Otter Creek Sportsmen’s Club building where I am also a life member and have served on that board for over 20 years.  I helped form the very first chapter of the “Wild Turkey Federation” in Iowa and served as vice president.  I have been hunter safety instructor for 30 some years now and enjoy working with young people to help them better understand gun safety.  My grandkids involvement in their sports has also led me to being assistant coach in softball, soccer and basketball.  

Simply put I like to help people!
