Clinic director

I would highly recommend Katie. She was very responsive with every question we had. As well she was patient as we made decisions on properties and flexible about meeting times as we were traveling a distance to view properties prior to purchase.

Katie did an amazing job helping us find our vacation home! She had very helpful knowledge of the local area and was able to answer many of our questions. Those she didn't know she was great at getting the answer and getting back to us. Very flexible and easy to work with to show the homes we wanted to see. Great Realtor! Would recommend to anyone!

Katie is very knowledgeable about the "lakes" area housing market. She did a fantastic job for us of marketing and selling our home!

We moved from Spirit Lake before our house was listed. Katie took care of all the details from providing a Comparative Market Analysis, listing, marketing, showings, advising on the negotiations, and then tracking deadlines to the closing. She is very professional, responsive and informative. Thanks Katie!

Nick Boone recommends Katie Slater


Katie was wonderful to work with throughout our entire home buying process. We contacted her just to get ideas of what was available with the things on our check list. We let her know in advance we would not be buying any time soon and that didn't change her willingness to meet with us or show us homes available meeting our criteria. Due to changes in our life we decided to fast track the process and Katie was right there the entire way, showing us houses, answering questions and re-showing us houses. She was great to work with and kept our needs and wants in mind the entire time. She didn't pressure us at all but supported us the entire time. Thanks!

Jody and Valerie Naberhuis recommend Katie Slater

Katie was professional from the very start! Our home had it's issues, but that didn't stop her from providing dedication and perseverance to get it sold. She kept us informed about what was going on after we relocated 700 miles away and did more than any broker should do...way above our expectations. We cannot thank her enough for the advice and effort that got our house sold. She comes highly recommended!

Robyn Mills recommends Katie Slater

Senior Program Manager, State Public Policy Group

Katie was the realtor who sold my mother's house in Spirit Lake, after Mom moved into Assisted Living. She did an excellent job, even though she had to work with a diverse, sometimes difficult set of people. She was a strong communicator through every step of the process. I would recommend Katie to anyone in the Lakes area who wants to sell their property.

Katie did a great job finding us a home that met our needs. Katie is very knowledgeable about real estate and the area, she was always willing to accommodate us to look at houses during hours that were not during her regular business hours.

Renee Kruse recommends Katie Slater

Katie Slater is a hard working real estate agent that is very dedicated to her clients. In 2013 she was our real estate agent when we purchased our condo. We were so impressed with her we recommended her to others.

Over the years she would stay in contact with us by sending us Christmas cards with a picture of our condo on it and would periodically check in with us to see if we needed anything.

My husband mentioned we might be interested in buying a new place and selling our condo. Katie kept us updated on different properties. She helped us find an amazing place which we just closed on. She made the process seamless by being proactive when anything needed to be done.

Our condo is now for sale and she has already done some wonderful advertising. I'm confident she will find the perfect family for our condo.

If you want a hard working proactive real estate agent you should call Katie Slater,

Joe Kruse recommends Katie Slater


In 2013 we bought a condo with Katie’s help. She worked hard representing us. She made sure all the t’s were crossed and I’s dotted.
Since 2013 Katie maintained contact with us once or twice a year. We let her know we may want to look at a house on the lake. She diligently sent us house’s that she thought would fit us.
Last week, we closed on a townhouse that Katie helped us with. Once again her care and service were outstanding.
We have employed Katie to sell our townhouse. We know she will work aggressively on our behalf.
If you need a real estate agent, Katie is your person.

Andrew Metzger recommends Katie Slater

Grain Merchandiser

Katie was incredible to work with and as a first time home buyer she helped us through every step of the way. She went all out and was there to answer all our questions and let us know what was next. She did a great job of communicating with us and always keeping us in the loop. Without her, the whole process of buying a house would have been so much harder. I highly recommend Katie to anyone looking to buy a home in the Spirit Lake or Sioux City area! She was awesome to work with and I am very thankful for all her help and work she put in to help us purchase our first home.

I can't express enough how amazing Katie is! She was phenomenal through the entire process of buying our house. We were first time home buyers and she explained the process to us so well. She always communicated updates and answered any and all questions quickly. She went out of her way to make sure we had all the information and answers we needed. I recommend her to anybody searching for a home. Thank you so much Katie!!

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.

Dale Graham recommends Katie Slater


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.
