Meet Alexa Strickler!

Iowa State University

Grundy Center, Iowa

Commercial Real Estate Representative with R&R Realty Group 

I love that I get to help business and people find spaces they enjoy going to every day! A space where they can collaborate and connect with their co-workers!   

“Adventures begin where plans end.

It’s great to have vision, direction, and goals but sometimes you learn and grow the most when you take a step back and let go a little bit.”

I’ve learned to crochet when I was in high school and love to create something in the winter. Love to do anything outside (roller blading, paddle boarding, biking, walking my dog, etc.) I have 5 nephews (yes, lots of wrestling, tackling, and playing with tractors) and love to spend time with them. I also LOVE concerts or just live music in general!

I love getting to meet new people every time I go. I always find there’s a connection somehow, whether it’s through my job, college, hometown, or friends! Such great networking opportunities professionally and personally.

I love West Des Moines because of the wide range of things to do! Love all the restaurant options. So many local restaurants as well as the best chains. The night life is perfect, and nothing too crazy! Raccoon River.. I mean come on!! Love to run the 5k route, walk with friends or my doggo, or go paddle boarding. I also just love the community feel. The people of West Des Moines love the city and it’s people and always strive to make it better! There’s tons of events going on throughout the year as well so I never get bored!
