Working for Ruhl & Ruhl Commercial Company, Keith Olson frequently does business around the Metro. But the amenities Ankeny offers makes selling real estate easy!
"It's easy to convince new or existing businesses to set up shop in Ankeny."
When it comes to selling commercial real estate, Keith appreciates Ankeny's business leaders and the City's Economic Development Department. "Ankeny is very forward-thinking," Keith shares. "They do a lot to promote growth through tax incentives and their loan programs."
"Look at John Deere, Casey's and all the businesses on Delaware Avenue," he says. "Ankeny has thriving commercial and industrial development. We have to give credit to the City for promoting what we have to offer and assisting current and future businesses."
"It's easy to convince new or existing businesses to set up shop in Ankeny," he continues. "For retailers, the City's demographics are strong and easily supports additional retail."
Ankeny isn't only attractive to businesses. It's good for young families as well. Keith and his wife Sarah moved to town a few years ago.
"We looked at a few other communities before settling on Ankeny. Both the cost of living and the quality of the Ankeny school system helped us decide to raise our family here." Overall, it was Ankeny's "small town feel and family-friendly neighborhoods" that finally convinced them. "The easy access to retail and amenities didn't hurt, either," he remarked.
