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.

  • Pike's Point State Park

    Pike's Point State Park

    West Lake Okoboji

    Pike's Point is located at 15973 213th Ave, Spirit Lake, IA on beautiful West Lake Okoboji. It is one of the largest parks in the Iowa Great Lakes, and provides for all kinds of activities including fishing, swimming, bird watching etc. This park also has a rest room, and a beach. If coming by boat, one wants to be careful as the point extends far into the lake, and there is a warning buoy roughly 300 feet from the point of shore. In 2010, many trees here were uprooted because of some severe straight line winds during the storm that reaked havoc through the Iowa Great Lakes. More Info

  • "The Tressle"

    "The Tressle" bridge used to carry the old railroad that traversed the area. Now the tressle is home to some of the areas best fishing. Served as a hot spot for fisherman, and a trail for walkers and bikers, the tressle is a classic structure of the Okobojis.

  • "The Bridge"

    West Lake Okoboji

    "The Bridge" has been referred to by the Wharf Bridge, the Kentucky Fried Chicken Bridge, the bridge connecting East and West, among other names. In the good old days, this was actually a draw bridge converted to the current permanent structure. In the 90's when the 3 lane was installed, there was talk about removing the bridge and making some drastic changes. All in all, the base of the bridge remained, and the upper structure was improved. I remember as a kid jumping off the bridge, and fishing on and under the bridge. In fact, an unforgettable memory I have is when I was fishing... More Info
