Matt and JodiEast Lake, Buyer

Mickey patiently helped us find a home that we absolutely love! She is so knowledgeable about the area and the ins and outs of lake living. She was super attentive and really went the extra mile to help us manage the sale. She gave us confidence in the process, allowing us to enjoy our new lake home!

SandyWest Lake, Seller

It was a pleasure to work with Mickey selling our home. I really appreciate how conscientious she was to detail and how carefully she monitored our house during the process. I am also glad we sold it in such record time!

SteveWest Lake, Buyer

Having spent years vacationing in Okoboji I thought I knew the Lakes area. When Amy started showing us property I realized her knowledge of Okoboji was far greater than mine. Negotiations, inspections, and closing could not have been smoother. We are definitely a satisfied buyer!

NancyWest Lake, Seller and Buyer

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mickey! She helped us sell our condo and find the perfect spot on West Lake Okoboji to build our retirement house! Everything went smoothly, even with my husband traveling for work and using electronic signatures. Mickey has a great knowledge of the Lakes area. We highly recommend her!

My wife Linda and I sold our home last September after listing it with Okoboji Realty. We were so pleased and appreciative of the excellent service we received from Mickey Harrington and Amy Maris. They gave us advice and helped us with the preparation needed to make our home conducive for interested buyers. We also were impressed with the service level we received. Mickey always returned her phone messages promptly. She used the up to date technology tools on the internet to sign contractual agreements and made Okoboji Realty so easy and convenient to do business. We know from experience that anyone needing the services of a professional real estate agency would be very happy to do business with Okoboji Realty.

We are thrilled to recommend Okoboji Realty to our friends and anyone else who will listen. They work hard for their clients and get results. Mickey Harrington is amazing! We would use her again if we ever decided to sell.

Clay and DebWest Lake, Seller

We had a great experience working with Okoboji Realty. They were very helpful in getting our outdated decor to a saleable look without major expense, and we were able to sell in one season.

The Okoboji Realty team is the best in the business. They always go the extra mile to deliver top-notch service. I've had four different transactions buying and selling lakefront property and every experience has been seamless and stress-free thanks to their professionalism, insight and thoroughness. They always take great care of me and continue to do so even after the transaction is done.

Doug and AmyWest Lake, Seller and Buyer

We have worked with the Okoboji Realty team many times over the years. When we decided to move from the area and sell the unique West Lake home we had built, the team put together a targeted marketing plan for the short list of potential buyers. Without advertising the home to the public, we closed the sale within 90 days of our initial meeting, to one of the named potential buyers on the original marketing plan. Amy and her team clearly have their fingers on the pulse of West Lake real estate.

Curt and TamiEast Lake, Buyer

Working with Okoboji Realty on our lake house search was effortless. We received a number of options that allowed us to narrow down based on our criteria. The team's levels of market knowledge, professionalism and service are remarkable. Qualities that are often aspirational for most individuals and organizations are constant deliverables. We truly appreciate the client experience that we were provided.

Jennifer and MarkEast Lake, Buyer

We were impressed with Okoboji Realty’s knowledge of the area, especially the differences between the lakes and the various neighborhoods. The team had a good pulse on upcoming market opportunities and was well connected within the Okoboji community. We were not pressured to move faster than we were comfortable however we were kept informed on other interest in the property so we were making smart decisions at the right pace. We appreciated all of the insight on the property including resale and things we needed to ensure we got in the home. We were able to secure our dream lake home and are excited to make many memories with friends and family!

Mike and JennyWest Lake, Buyer

Okoboji Realty's vast knowledge of the area, paired with their keen listening skills led us to the lake home of our dreams! The team's patience and advice allowed us to explore a variety of options we didn’t even know existed. From start to finish, our experience was seamless and fun!

Arlie and MaryWest Lake, Seller

Selecting a trusted real estate professional is a major decision from both a financial and personal perspective. Amy Maris of Okoboji Realty listened closely to the individualized needs for our family and our next steps in life. She used her extensive knowledge of the Lakes community to make our real estate dreams a reality. Amy is the right choice!

JoeyMilford, Buyer

Working with Okoboji Realty was the best experience I have had when buying our forever home! We relocated to the area and sold our home in Wisconsin with not a very great experience. Mickey made us feel like her only buyers and we knew we were not. I would and have recommended Okoboji Realty to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the area. We were interested in purchasing the lot next to our home and with no luck finding the owner Mickey was able to get it done in 1 day! They are the best in town hands down!

KateWest Lake, Buyer

I highly recommend Okoboji Realty. The staff is professional, efficient and work together seamlessly to provide assistance for buying or selling your property. They are magical.
