One of the most important decisions you will make while buying, selling, or investing in real estate, is deciding on who you will entrust to be your agent. 
 
For many years of my life, I managed a variety of different businesses, from real estate, manufacturing, consulting, and service industries.  During this time, I've learned just how important service, aggressiveness, and new marketing methods are for any business, especially the real estate industry.  Equally as important, it's key to surround yourself with a great team and exceptional talent, which is why I'm with Remax.  We have the best real estate brand in the world and the finest team of real estate professionals in the Iowa Great Lakes.  I've lived around Lake Okoboji my entire life, and understand the local markets thoroughly.
 
I graduated from Buena Vista University Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Business Management.  I enjoy all sports, especially golf, basketball, and football.
 
Did you know that one of the biggest complaints regarding the real estate industry is "lack of feedback to the client?"  I have been on that end too.  As my client, you will get feedback when you want it, and as often as you want it, plain and simple.
 
Folks, real estate has changed tremendously in the last decade.  Whether you are a buyer or seller, let me show you some examples of my expertise in online marketing, and how this adds tremendous value to you.
 
I am confident that you will find working with me and our RE/MAX team a refreshing change.  We truly understand the challenges our clients face and the service and commitment you deserve.   Rest assured that you will always come first and that you will receive Exceptional Service, Peace of Mind

  • Beware the (I'll get your home sold in a week) agent

    The "Real" Estate Blog

    I hear this one all the time from prospects looking to list their house. "Well, agent xyz told us that if we listed with her, she'd have it sold in a week." This would fall into the category of "If it sounds too good to be true, the probably is." The majority of agents are not going to make this claim, but rather will give you an honest market analysis, inform you as to how weak or strong the market is, especially the market in which your home resides, and present the objective facts. A good agent will then lay out an effective marketing plan, where the majority of the focus should be on "online marketing". Be careful to not get caught up in empty promises, reduced commissions, and being talked in to lowering your price below market value (unless you must have a quick sale). The key to choosing a good listing agent is to objectively determine who is going to provide you the best opportunity to sell your home. Will your listing agent also aggressively work to find buyers, or will they just list your home and wait for another agent to do the work.

  • Cheap vs high end quality. A buyer's perspective.

    The "Real" Estate Blog

    Here's the scenario. You are building a house or remodeling your house. Material costs are up. Labor costs are up. You ask yourself, where can I save a buck? Before answering this question, you must be careful, especially if your home is located in an area where other quality homes are built, whether on the lake, off the lake, or in higher valued developments such as golf course developments, etc. Growing up in construction and with a plethora of new construction and remodels under my belt, let me share with you some of the easy things that your future buyers will recognize when they are looking for quality. 1. One of the first things buyers of higher end homes will look for is to determine if the owner used hollow core doors. It's an immediate sign that the seller was looking for ways to save money (where else then did they cut back that I can't see???) 2. The second most obvious is the counter tops. Did the sellers spend for a quality granite, quartz, or other hard surface, or was formica used? 3. The third item that might stick out is the cabinetry. Do the drawers have dovetail construction with hardwoods? Did they use "soft close" drawers? Are there pull outs for the pots and pans? 4. Flooring is an easy one also. Was laminate used, or is it engineered or hardwoods? Does the carpet convey a quality feel and plushness? Is there a nice thick pad underneath the carpet? 5. Though there are many other items to look at, cheap vs quality lighting and plumbing fixtures are probably the next major focus. There is nothing wrong with with using lower cost materials, especially when trying to keep a project within budget, especially when trying to build more house for less money. Just be aware that most buyers looking to spend in excess of $300k for off lake homes and $500+ for East Lake chain homes, and $1M+ for West and Big Spirit will expect the very best materials and finishes.

  • Okoboji Boat Works

    Okoboji Boat Works is home to "The Fish Shack" and "The Inconvenience Store". Formerly a marina of thriving boat sales since 1890, OBW now offers up many different rentals, a 24 hour gas dock, excursion boats, and more. I remember the days as a child of fishing for crappie and blue gill here and along the docks of Smith's Bay. Though the scenery has changed, the outstanding fishing has not.
