Creating Blank & McCune

Jackie & Jane: On Their Own at Last

In September of 1979, Jackie Blank and Jane McCune founded Blank & McCune, The Real Estate Company. The brokerage was the first female broker-owned practice in the Iowa City area, and one of the few nationwide.

Building Blank & McCune

Jackie & Jane: Moving Forward

Told they would never succeed without a male business partner, Jackie and Jane went on to have profound careers in real estate for over forty years. Thanks to these two pioneers Blank & McCune became, and remains, and Iowa City area Classic.

In September of 2017, Jackie Blank retired from real estate. In January of 2018, Jane McCune retired from real estate.

A New Millennium

Blank & McCune Moves Forward

In the year 2012, ownership was transferred to Alan Swanson and Teresa Morrow. The new owners continued to foster the brokerage and continue the firm’s entrepreneurial spirit. Teresa’s expertise with commercial real estate and management coupled with Alan’s passion for creative marketing and residential real estate helped propel Blank & McCune, The Real Estate Company.

Teresa expanded Blank and McCune’s presence in the commercial real estate arena and became the firm’s designated broker. Alan introduced the concept of CLASSIC to our brand to capture the legacy of Jane and Jackie. For years Alan oversaw and designed the print insert Blank & McCune ran in the Press-Citizen newspaper. The weekly publication, known as CLASSIC, had a photo grid on the cover which became a hallmark for the brokerage and gained a large following.

Keep on Keeping On…
