A new business in Jefferson was awarded a $5,000 Jefferson Wants You Incentive grant for start-up costs. Nikki Uebel purchased the property at 100 N Wilson Avenue in Jefferson and opened her new real estate business, RE/MAX Legacy. Nikki shared, “This business was a catalyst for our purchase of the vacant downtown building. It will impact all of the town by having two productive businesses in that space. Additionally, RE/MAX will be a community partner with other businesses.”
Nikki has hired one part-time position to help with design and marketing. Her goal is to hire at least one other agent and an administrative assistant within the first few years with full-time positions.
The Jefferson Wants You Incentive Fund was created as a part of the Rural Return Grant received as part of the Empower Rural Iowa Initiative. A number of local utilities, financial institutions and a grant from Grow Greene County have provided the funding for this incentive fund with a local committee making the selection.
New start-up businesses in Jefferson and remote workers in Greene County are eligible to apply for the Jefferson Wants You Incentive Fund. Find the applications are www.experiencejeffersoniowa.com under the Move Here tab.
