We have been working with Katie for 6 years now. Katie has the patience to help you find the property that you are looking for. She helped us find our present home and a rental property.
Katie will continue to be our Realtor of choice.

Father and grandfather

Katie Slater has known for a while that I was looking for a condo in Okoboji. She sent weekly updates, and suddenly we narrowed the list to a handful. In early July 2018, Katie escorted my daughters and I through properties, never once pressuring us into anything. We stayed in contact, and by mid-August, we were sold. Every step of the way, Katie was there. Even despite my stupidest questions -- Katie was patient. We are very satisfied with the purchase.

We had very specific needs in our new home. Katie and her staff quickly accommodated our wishes. Most times we were able to walk through homes within hours of our request. Once we found our ideal home, she helped us through the negotiations. We believe we got great value on our expenditure. After the Sale and the inspection process, she continued to handle any issues on our behalf. When all was finalized she gave us a list of phone numbers to make our utility and service transition painless.
I would recommend her highly.

I have no problem with giving Katie Slater 5 stars. She listened to me describe my housing needs, financial issues and, as I informed her, of my physical handicaps and personal hobbies, asked thoughtful questions and quickly eliminated properties on the market that did not fit those criteria rather than wasting my time showing me homes that would not fit my needs . She is very knowledgeable about the area, pointing out the different properties relative location to the local government offices, public library and parks.

In the end, Katie found me the nearly perfect property to call “home”! I’m sure that it will fit, not only my current needs, but also my future needs. Thank you very much for your help, Katie, I sincerely appreciate it.

Katie was great to work with and was always available for any questions we had. She immediately scheduled some realtor showings and the house was sold in a few days. We would recommend her to any one with any realtor needs.

Katie did a great job of moving our property. We signed the listing agreement with her, she published an ad in the local Shopper, and it was sold within two weeks. We closed in less than 30 days of listing. Katie handled all of the paperwork, clean & simple. Katie handled herself professionally, and did everything as promised. Great work!!

Katie is awesome! She did a great job helping me find my place and took care of everything to make sure the process went smoothly from beginning to end. It was so nice to know that I didn’t have to worry about details, because Katie had it handled.

Katie Slater was extremely helpful. She was very nice, polite, and she was very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions I had through out the looking/Home buying process. I would recommend Katie to anyone in looking to buy or sell a property.

John Olson recommends Mike Hemiller

Teacher and Coach

Mike did a great job of keeping us informed. He had a difficult listing as our tenant in the house was returning to Brazil. He kept the lines of communication open but did an excellent job of support his client. He marketed our property in print and online giving us great exposure. Mike put us first and gave of himself tirelessly to get our property sold at close to asking price. Finally, if you want an agent that cuts through the crap and is a straight shooter,, Mike is your guy. He may tell you things you don’t want to hear, but he truly has your best interest at heart when he lists your property.

Jordyn Kok recommends Mitzy Johnson

Mitzy was such a great realtor to work with. We were looking for a house on a strict timeline to move to the area and we were able to find a house, get approved and moved in all within the couple weeks. She is very honest and if you tell her what your are looking for she will find exactly what you want. I would recommend Mitzy to anyone.

Brennon Kok recommends Mitzy Johnson

Worship Pastor

Mitzy invested so much of herself, her time, and much more to make sure we found the right home. We were moving from out of state and were in a time crunch. She went out of her way to accommodate our schedule and worked hard to make sure we were taken care of. If there was a 6 out of 5 star option I would’ve picked that.

We couldn't have asked for an agent that represented us and our needs any better. Katie is truly passionate about real estate and her community. It was very refreshing to work with someone who actually returned messages promptly and kept in constant communication. Thanks for everything Katie!

Jennifer Pangburn recommends Katie Slater

Katie was the perfect person to help us sell our home. She explained all the intricate details of home selling to us very well. Her ability to handle the minor problems that come up when selling a home relieved our worries and ensured us that the sale of our home was in excellent hands. I would recommend Katie to all of my friends and family who may be interested in selling or buying a home!

Deputy Treasurer

I selected Katie to help me sell my home because she is very friendly, professional and has an outstanding reputation as a realtor. I appreciated how Katie kept me informed throughout the process of selling my house. Which, I might add took just a few days! If you are thinking about selling your home, call Katie! You will be happy you did!

Maggie Bleakly recommends Katie Slater

Katie was very easy to work with. She was very helpful with getting ahold of the sellers and the other real estate agent involved with them. She helped me to look at the houses that were coming out on the market and was great in letting me know about the perfect one for me- the offer was accepted within a few days of the house being listed. Katie was able to answer all of my questions in a timely manner and the closing went quite smoothly for me. I plan to have Katie help me when I move on to another part of the country, and need to sell this house!

Chad Duffy recommends Katie Slater

House Buyer

Katie was a wonderful realtor to work with! She was so kind and understanding with all the questions my parents and I had with the buying of the mobile home in Milford.

Katie went beyond the call of duty showing me various homes and explaining the ins and outs of buying a home.

What was real so kind of Katie was when she showed us the house on the final "walk-through", I noticed a picture with "DUFFY" on. What a wonderful house warming gift!

Thank you for everything you did for me! It was the easiest time I ever had on buying a house and thank you because of it!
