Aterra Real Estate Holdings are members of ‘The Avenues – Ingersoll & Grand’ which is a project aimed at revitalizing an impressive corridor including the commercial stretch of Ingersoll Avenue and the ten adjoining residential neighborhoods.


In addition to the IMT Des Moines Marathon, the Bernau family are members of the United Way’s Tocqueville Society which recognize local philanthropic leaders and volunteers throughout the United States.
