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.

The harbor is a man made inlet located on the north end of West Lake. A board walk surrounds the harbor and this is one of the most tranquil parts of the lake. Homeowners in the harbor have a more affordable way to have access to West Lake, and still get to enjoy the clean waters West Lake has to offer. Homes in the Harbor typically range from about $350k to as much as $700k.

Bridges Bay Resort

Bridges Bay Resort in East Lake Okoboji

Bridges Bay Resort is built on the land purchased a few years prior which used to be owned by the Nielsen family of Arnolds Park. This huge complex consists of a hotel, 3 condo buildings (a 4th is under construction), and over 100 vacation cabins. A popular part of the resort is the indoor waterpark that cabin and condo owners have access to, but also, so does the public for a fee. Braccos is a fantastic summertime restaurant and bar which is frequented by boat, by car, and by foot, especially from the owners of the condos and cabins. All of the units at Bridges Bay have an opportunity for a boat hoist, and it is an extremely popular destination for out of towners looking for a vacation spot in Okoboji. Because Bridges Bay is not within the city limits, many owners utilize property management companies to help them rent their units by the day, week, and month. I've personally sold and shown many condo and cabin units and would be delighted to help.

Terrace Park

Terrace Park is located in Brown's Bay on West Lake, Okoboji. It is one of the largest public beaches on West Lake and has entertained beach goers for many years. Next to Terrace Park is Boys Town out of Omaha, Nebraska. I remember as a kid spending entire days at terrace park, either riding bicycle or taking a moped (yes a moped) down to meet with friends and playing king on the dock. In 2010, the morning after "the storm", Terrace Park was carnage. Boat were stacked on top of each other. Trees were uprooted, and hoists were tossed around. Boats and other water craft were found in Terrace Park that belonged to owners on the North end of West Lake.

Aaron and his team were great to work with and made the entire process seamless from start to finish. We were originally intending to sell the property on our own but Aaron found a buyer for us in the process and made the whole experience both easier and smoother than had we continued trying to sell entirely on our own. It was definitely worth having Aaron as part of the team for getting this done.

Aaron was a pleasure to work with on the sale of our Okoboji cabin. We will 100% be working with him again in the future when we look for another vacation home in the area.

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 was right there every step of the way to guide us throw the process, and responsive to our endless questions. Purchasing this property from another state provided a different set of challenges for us as buyers. IE. Knowing the ins and outs of Iowa Real Estate, Area Utilities, and a remote final walk thru. Aaron was right there every step of the way. Thanks Aaron!

Aaron was quick to help us get an offer in on a larger house for our growing family. Our offer was accepted that night and the next day Aaron sold our old house. He also went to our old house when we had heating concerns to check in our furnace. He was also helpful suggesting a carpenter for small updates. We would highly recommend Aaron!

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.

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.
