Heartland Realty in Hiawatha is working for you. Owner Sheila Schwalm said the agency can assist with buying or selling residential, commercial, or agricultural property, as well as property management and storage.
Heartland Realty has its headquarters in Hiawatha, but extends coverage to Doniphan, Brown, Nemaha, and Atchison counties. Schwalm has more than 20 years’ experience in the real estate industry. She started her career in 1991 processing and closing mortgage loans after attending Kansas State University.
After marrying her husband Marc and moving to Hiawatha, she decided to branch out from the mortgage industry in 1999 by obtaining a Realtor’s license and jumping full-time into real estate. In late 2003, Schwalm obtained her broker’s license and purchased Heartland Realty.
An active member of the Hiawatha Foundation for Economic Development, where Schwalm has served on HFED committees as well as the Board of Directors, she also is a member of the Doniphan County Economic Development group and has served on Chambers of Commerce boards in Hiawatha, Horton, Sabetha and Doniphan Counties. She is also active in the Kansas Association of Realtors, where she has held several positions.
Another friendly face at Heartland Realty is Agent Jim Faunce. After graduating from Holton High School, Faunce went on to gain business experience in several areas, from running a cow calf operation to a twenty year career in lawn and garden. Jim, along with wife Diane, lives in Troy and has quickly become an expert in helping customers buy and sell homes.
Cheryl Lippold is also ready to help you at Heartland Realty. She is a Hiawatha High and Highland Community College graduate and lives in rural Hiawatha with her husband, Jim. When not busy at work Cheryl can be found behind the lens of a camera capturing the beauty that nature has to offer or spending time enjoying her grandchildren.
Rounding out the team is office manager, Angela Entrikin. Born and raised in Hiawatha, Entrikin is happy to be manning the office at Heartland Realty. She is the main office contact and can answer any questions on properties for sale, rentals available and storage units. Angela is a proud military Mom and loves being involved in community activities with her kids.
Heartland Realty currently manages 40 rental properties, including storage units in Hiawatha and Sabetha.
