CENTURY 21 Signature Real Estate is proud to be named a top workplace in Iowa for 2019!

The Des Moines Register recognized 135 organizations in Iowa based entirely on surveys about the workplace completed by employees. CENTURY 21 Signature Real Estate was ranked the No. 2 workplace out of all the ranking midsize businesses. 

What makes us a top workplace of 2019? 

“We really are differentiated by creating an environment that is conducive to people flourishing,” said Dylan De Bruin, co-owner of CENTURY 21 Signature Real Estate. “If you can create a positive environment for the people that are here, they’re going to welcome others.”

Another significant element of the company culture that differentiates C21® is the vein of philanthropy that runs through the agency. That’s why we’ve made it our purpose to inspire our agents to grow businesses that empower them to give back. Many members of our team have founded their own nonprofits or work closely with organizations that impact and elevate the lives of others. 

Orphans of Teso is a nonprofit founded by our two co-owners, Dylan De Bruin and Joe Schafbuch, to support vulnerable children in the Teso region of Uganda. Some of our agents sponsor children and have made trips to Uganda to visit the three established care points. 

I3 is another way our team gives back to our communities. Every quarter, our team has the option to donate to a new person or organization in need. Our agency accepts nominations for the recipients from our team members. It’s a personalized way for our agents and staff to be about more than sales and more than earnings. 

“We want to create a workplace where people can find their own avenue to leverage what they do to the betterment of others,” said de Bruin. We look forward to continuing that in 2020!
