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
  • 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.

  • "Turn-Over" Thermocline

    West Lake Okoboji

    Referred to locally as the lake turning over the thermocline is a feature of lakes with deep water. The water on the top of the lake changes temperature much more variably during the year. On West Lake, it can reach as much as 75 degrees in July while the water below, greater than 35 or 40 feet deep is relatively stable around 45 degrees. In the fall and early winter, the top strata of the lake will cool to below 45 degrees, and then because it becomes denser, it will "sink" below the lower strata, thus, displacing it and making the lake "turn-over". In the deepest part of West Lake (near the 136ft mark), no light is availble, and hence little life is known whether fish or plant. Typically questions are raised as to why the surface water gets dirty for a short period of time in the fall, this this is the standard answer.

  • Arnolds Park Amusement Park

    Arnolds Park

    Having lived in Okoboji all my life, there are a wealth of memories of Arnolds Park. I, like many of the locals, miss the nostalgia of the old Roof Garden, the fun house, the water slide and much, much more. With time comes change, and the amusement park continues to reinvent itself. Currently with over 20 rides to choose from, the family is sure to have a good time. The main attraction, The Legend Roller Coaster, is the 7th oldest coaster in the United States and apparently the 13th oldest in the world. Reaching speeds of up to 50 mph, the roller coaster has undergone substantial renovations in the last year. In front of the amusement park on West Lake is the Queen II excursion boat, and Pirate Jacks Bar. The sunsets here are unparalleled. If you have a chance to visit, make sure to check out the tipsy house, the three sons, and all of the shops. Just to the east is the green space, which provides great entertainment and in 2013 OAR came to play, which is a pretty big name for Okoboji.

  • "The Harbor"

    West Lake Okoboji

    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.

  • Emerald Hills

    Arnolds Park

    Emerald Hills Golf Course is one of the premier golf courses in the Iowa Great Lakes. Golfers throughout Okoboji will tell you that compared to the rest of the golf courses around, Emerald Hills is probably the most challenging. When I grew up as a kid, we lived just a half block from the back side of the course. We would sneak on with a couple short little clubs and balls we found walking the course and sometimes spent more time being chased by the sprinklers than trying to hit golf balls. Emerald Hills was owned by Gordy and Bette Benit many years ago and they can be credited with growing this course into the masterpiece it has become. Later purchased by Randy Rohlfsen and a few others, Emerald has flourished as one of the best courses around. If memory serves me right, Randy has been there since the early 1990's and has always had a strong conviction to help young golfers. He has taught and coached numerous high school teams, and they also put on a 5 day junior camp every year which has been a tremendous hit. I grew up on this course and can honestly say, you better be hitting the ball straight!

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.
