I am the fourth generation of my family to live and work in the Iowa Great Lakes. I currently live on West Lake Okoboji. My entire adult life has been spent owning and operating local businesses. I am the single largest landlord among all Realtors in the Okoboji area with over 40 rental units. This has given me a first hand perspective of investing in Okoboji real estate, whether it is lakeshore, in town or commercial. I do it every day! I am one of the highest producing Realtors in the Okoboji area year after year. I feel this is due to a combination of personal drive, youthful enthusiasm, sales experience and integrity. I am a past winner of REALTOR Magazines “30 under 30” Web Choice Award for the top Realtors under the age of 30 in the entire United States. I have also won the Diamond Award, the highest award tied to yearly sales, from the Iowa Association of Realtors every year since 2010. I am the highest rated and most reviewed agent on Zillow and Trulia. I enjoy every facet of the the real estate business and I look forward to Guiding Your Real Estate Investments.
