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
  • Arrowood Resort

Years ago, Brooks Golf Course clubhouse was actually housed on the rear side of Arrowood, but since then, the course has been converted to 27 holes with a a new separate clubhouse. Also, the Racquet Club was a part of the facility, offering workout facilities, racquet ball, and tennis. However, with the addition of the YMCA, the racquet club was unsustainable and converted into retail.

  • 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.

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. Fishing is great in Haywards Bay and the sunsets are one in a million. To get to Haywards Bay by car, one would drive the east side of the lake on Lakeshore Dr.

  • "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.

  • "The Tressle"

    East Lake Okoboji

    "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. We spent days jumping off of the tressle doing cannonballs, preachers, flips and the like. I know in my life my friends and I have caught literally tens of thousands of crappie and blue gill off the tressle bridge.

  • South Shore Estates

    Lower Gar Lake

    South Shore Estates is the newest lakeshore development on Lower Gar. Here you have access to West Lake, East Lake, Minnewashta, and Upper Gar.

  • 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.

  • 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!
