Meyer & Gross Real Estate Company
Broker/Owner
Hello! I started in the real estate business in 1988 and am currently the managing Broker. I love real estate and our community! Whether buying, selling, relocating, investing or you simply have a question, I'm happy to help. Real estate is not about houses, it's about people! My husband and I are life-long residents of Cass County, and I'm involved with Boy Scouts, community events, and am a member of First Lutheran Church. My company is a member of the Atlantic Chamber of Commerce where I serve on the board, I'm a member of the Iowa Association of Realtors where I serve on the Communications committee and MLS Board of Directors, the National Association of Realtors and I'm a member and officer of the WCIR Board of Realtors. Bowling, flower gardening, scrapbooking, watching my nieces and nephews in their activities and hanging out with family and friends is where you'll find me when I have some spare time. I'll do more than just open the door!

Colt Doherty
First Church of Christ
Lead Pastor
Hey guys! I’m Colt, I’m originally from Southern California (but don’t hold that against me, I’m loving the Midwest so much more). I moved out to Joplin, MO to attend Ozark Christian College where I received my BA in Bible and Ministry. While there, I met the wife beyond my greatest dreams and married Jillian in August 2018 and had our daughter Olivia in November 2021. We love being outdoors and going on adventures, exploring new places, and experiencing new food. My heartbeat for ministry is to see people tasting and seeing that the Lord is good, and taking the next step in their faith to know God better. I love to guide people as they realize only Christ can fill the void they’re searching in vain to fill.

She was born and raised in Atlantic and is now raising her own family here as well. When the opportunity arose to be a part of a new business abstracting locally in Cass County she couldn't pass it up!
