About Us

At Lion Development Group, we believe that in order to stand out you have to be different; you have to do something that the competition isn’t doing. We do this by never backing down from our faith. We pride ourselves on honesty, integrity and doing the right thing…every time, even if to our detriment.

It is easy to just say “Lion Development Group is a full service real estate company” and that would be the truth, but in addition to that, we are serial entrepreneurs. Brandon owns 6 restaurants, has 22 corporations, apartment complexes, a vending company, property management company, and over 200,000 sq ft of commercial/industrial space. Brandon has been a licensed realtor since he was 19 years old with experience in virtually every segment of the real estate industry: manufacturing, multi-family, mixed use development, retail, commercial, full service development and construction management. We buy & hold raw ground, build & develop properties and will look at any project no matter the size or location.

We are a “full service real estate company,” but we are more than that. Our years of experience across many industries has allowed us to develop a team that embraces the bigger picture. We take a unique viewpoint of every project with our primary focus being: how does every person involved in the project reach their end-goals.

Lion Development Group would be honored to partner with you on your next project.

Brandon Pratt

Faith, Family, Business…in that order.

My name is Brandon Pratt and I am first an unapologetic follower of Christ, second a faithful husband/father and third a serial entrepreneur. I have been happily married to my soul mate Jennifer since August 2004, I have 4 beautiful boys and currently reside in my hometown of North Liberty Iowa. My business background is in commercial real estate development where I have been a licensed realtor since I was 19 years old and have been involved in a variety of projects throughout the country ranging from:

  • Raw Land Acquisitions
  • Apartment Development/Management
  • Land Developments (both commercial and residential)
  • Restaurant Development
  • Commercial Construction (warehouse, strip centers, power centers, large
    scale multi-use developments)
  • Residential Construction (apartment complexes, townhomes, & single family)
  • Large Scale Destination Resort Development
  • Government Housing & Government Leases

Although I have enjoyed working with hundreds of clients as a licensed realtor over the last 18 years, I now primarily only represent myself and my real estate development company: Lion Development Group. I have worked throughout the country and have a passion for getting the deal done and getting it done right the first time.

In addition to my professional experiences I sit on the Board of 100+ Men Who Care (Hawkeye Chapter) and I am passionate about playing golf, hunting, fishing, rooting on the Iowa Hawkeyes and playing poker.

Lion Development Group has the financial resources, the construction infrastructure, the relationships, the experience and the team in place to look at any deal at any time, no matter the size or location.

Our Employees Say

“I wouldn’t have moved from Florida to Iowa for just a job.  I wanted to be part of something special.  I wanted to work for a company that was building more then just business’s and real estate: a company that is more focused on building His kingdom rather then just bricks and mortar.  The vision and creativity of Brandon and Curt is like nothing I have experienced.  In addition, they are great men, but most importantly they are God fearing leaders.”
