About Aaron Jones

Thank you for checking out my profile.  My name is Aaron Jones and I am the Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Lakes Realty.  I specialize in lakeshore home sales on West Lake Okoboji, East Lake Okoboji, Big Spirit, Lake Minnewashta, Lower Gar Lake, and Upper Gar Lake.   Below you will find over 150 testimonials on Zillow.
I have been selling real estate since 2012. I am a lifelong resident of Lake Okoboji and my family has been in construction for about 60 years. I grew up in construction and understand construction costs, and this has helped me immensely in adding value for my clients. Prior to selling real estate, I managed a furniture manufacturing facility in Milford, IA. I learned a lot about lean manufacturing and have brought many of those concepts into our business here, mainly focused on efficient technologies in real estate. I have a great team of 24 agents that work together to find buyers for our clients. I have 2 incredible employees, and also have a technology business partner in India, and we have been developing real estate management and paperless transaction management solutions, along with our own proprietary electronic signature service (www.signfast.com and www.leadcity.com) and we use these solutions daily in our office. I have built 5 homes since I was 26, 4 of them being lake homes, and I invest everything I have in real estate. 
I’m very proud of our agents in so many ways, but the success is partially defined by the numbers. In 2020, our office closed more Dickinson county transactions than any other office, and in Dickinson county, we beat all other offices in Sales volume by over $20,000,000. We know how to market; we know how to treat people, and we know how to do the right thing, regardless of dollar signs. Lastly, since 2015, I have closed more transactions than any other agent in the MLS in Dickinson county, and I’m proud to say that I was #1 in sales volume in 2020 for the entire MLS. When you hire me to sell, you will get ethical, professional service with expertise in online marketing, social media marketing, and web lead generation, which will produce a buyer for your home.  When you hire me to buy, you will have someone in your corner that will find you that perfect home, even if that means sending out mailers or contacting owners through facebook to find you that special place.

Renowned for the "bay of the flags", you will know you are in Haywards bay because of the all the American flags on the end of the docks.

Miller's Bay

West Lake Okoboji

Miller's Bay, on the west side of West Lake is a popular spot for boaters in the summer to just go chill out, throw an anchor, and relax. On the weekends, this bay is filled with boats tied up to each other offering families the opportunity to have the kids swim, or you might find a bunch of party animals chugging beers and enjoying the summer sun. Either way, everyone is having a great time, and so if you are out and about, just know that Millers Bay is where boaters go in the summer to be where the party is at.

The Family Diner

Spirit Lake

The Family Diner is Spirit Lake, IA is a local favorite! They offer up a large portion for small money, but whether you come early or late you may be in for a wait. With homemade bread and the largest sausage patty you have seen, The Family Diner is consistently delicious. They are open only for breakfast and lunch and closed two days a week. In my former career at Stylecraft, the family diner was definately a favorite when our friends would visit from North Carolina. They were always inpressed with the bread and rolls and corn beef hash.

Homes in the Harbor typically range from about $350k to as much as $700k.

The West Lake "Tie Up"

West Lake Okoboji

For most leisure boaters in the Iowa Great Lakes, there are 2 main hot spots to go throw an anchor, sit back, and just relax. Sometimes this will result in numerous boats tying up to one another (you may not even know your neighbor), and sometimes it results in a little more privacy where you can chill just by yourself. Every weekend, boaters make the trek across the deepest parts of West Lake to either Gull Point (North AND South side) and Miller's Bay. Thought there are many other great areas to throw an anchor, relax, and swim, these are the two hot spots. If you aren't sure where to go on a Saturday afternoon or wonder where your friends might be, these two spots would be a good start.

Aaron was professional, and knowledgable! This is the second time we have worked with him and he guided us through the selling process because of his expertise in the area market. We were pleased with how quickly and smoothly everything went! Thank you Aaron!

Aaron did an outstanding job for us. He went above and beyond to accommodate us - both in the sale of our home and the purchase of our new condo.Very professional and always friendly. Communication was exceptional, and he always returned calls promptly. Very Satisfied and would highly recommend Aaron.

Aaron and his team were invaluable in helping us purchase our new property. The closing occurred on time and without a hitch. We've used Aaron for all our transactions in the past few years. Thank you!

14 Sep, 2023

Aaron helped us buy our house several years ago as first time home buyers, and again to sell our house. Aaron explained each process really well, I never felt confused or lost in the paperwork. If we did have questions he was available to answer and always knowledgeable. We sold our home for much more than my husband & I thought! If we buy again in the lakes area, Aaron will be our first call!

19 Jul, 2023

If you are looking for a professional realtor that truly knows the area I would highly recommend Aaron. We have had Aaron assist us with buying and selling a few times. He makes the process very simple and stress free. We will be using his services again.

22 Sep, 2023

Aaron provided excellent service to make the transaction extremely seamless. With both parties' primary residences being out of state, this was very beneficial. His video walk-through of the final inspection is a great example of this...provided a detail video prior to closing. In addition, Aaron has vast knowledge of the local market. Overall, it was a great experience!

07 Aug, 2023

Aaron has been extremely helpful during and after the search for our retirement home. We had a list of items that we wanted and Aaron persisted in the search until we finally found the home that fit us best. Aaron helped us understand all the steps involved in buying a home and assisted us with each one. He has also been open to communication even after closing to ensure we have been fully satisfied with our purchase.

24 Aug, 2023

I had an excellent experience working with Aaron! His professionalism, expertise, and dedication made the selling process simple. I highly recommend Aaron to anyone in need of a reliable and trustworthy real estate agent.

17 Feb, 2024

Aaron Jones is honestly the best realtor I know. He is caring, knowledgeable, professional, works hard for his clients and stands behind his word. We trusted him completely with the sale of our home and would do so again without hesitation. He literally made our retirement dreams come true. If anyone was looking to buy or sell their property, I would absolutely recommend Aaron Jones at Remax Okoboji.

10 Jan, 2024

I’ve always thought that I was pretty experienced at buying real estate, but the Iowa Great Lakes area is completely different from any of my previous investments. We quickly discovered that we needed somebody that would work directly for us, that knew the landscape, had the experience, and was trustworthy. Aaron fit that description perfectly and he made it a point to help navigate us through our ever-changing options and objectives. He is a professional that cares very much for the people he serves and stuck with us through the highs and lows. We have the highest level of confidence in Aaron and highly recommend working with Aaron to fulfill your goals and dreams. - Steve and Lori Daniel
