History

Our Story

WB Realty Co. was founded in 2010, but its origins can be traced back to a partnership formed in 2001 by Ryan Wiederstein and Jesse Burr. Driven by a shared passion for home renovation, they successfully completed over 100 transactions, demonstrating unwavering determination even during the challenging times of the Great Recession. As economic conditions gradually improved, Ryan chose a new path, departing from a thriving career to create WB Realty Co. What started as a residential brokerage quickly evolved to a comprehensive range of services, including commercial real estate, property management, and development. At WB Realty Co., we are rooted by innovation, expertise, and client relationships. Our journey is a testament to our dedication and the enduring impact we strive to create.

Agriculture has been my lifelong passion. I have 40 years of experience working in the industry. I grew up on a dairy and crop farm, living on a 4th generation farmstead in Iowa. Right after earning my Bachelor’s Degree in Ag Business from Iowa State, I began investing in livestock facilities while also raising livestock, which I still do today. I have a broad network of connections in the agricultural community, and I pride myself on building trustworthy and lasting relationships. This is why I work hard to help each client make well-informed investments with transparency, using all of my experience in the industry to facilitate smooth and stress-free buying and selling transactions. I would love to meet you and assist you in your next agricultural venture.
