Liz Sandy

Real Estate & Lakeshore Expert
The service industry is where my professional career began. I started working in restuaurants at the age of 15 where I quickly learned service and helping others was something I loved. I went to school for Hotel, Restaurant & Institution Management at Iowa State University and graduated with honors with Bachelor of Science in '08.  I worked at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis in catering sales, both selling and planning weddings, galas & conventions after school and moved to the lakes area in 2010. I have since been selling real estate in the lakes area for the past 5 years.  
I understand what it means to assist a buyer and seller from start to finish. Service is what I know and what I do best. No detail should be overlooked in selling or buying your home. As a full time Realtor with RE/MAX Lakes Realty, I guarantee I will exceed your expectations.
When I am not busy at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, teaching group fitness classes at the YMCA, cooking, boating and traveling.
Contact me today to begin the process of selling or buying your home. Regardless of your needs, I will provide the service you deserve.

The Family Diner in Spirit Lake

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.

Bridges Bay Resort in East Lake Okoboji

Bridges Bay Resort

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.

Aaron Jones is simply the best in the business. In 2013 we made the decision to sell our home and at the same time by another and because of the personal relationship we had with Aaron, we chose him to be our realtor. It was an excellent decision - our house sold in a week and he helped us get into our new house without having to move to an interim house. In 2018 we made the decision to sell our house again and without hesitation we chose Aaron again. His ability to communicate with us promptly and professionally was outstanding. He always had time for us no matter how many times we called him with questions. His advice and insight was terrific and even though we are moving out of the area, we would use Aaron again - without hesitation - for all of our real estate needs in the area. I recommend him to any of my friends/family/co-workers that are looking for a realtor. He is simply the best.
