Jeff & Ellen Kish recommend Bridget Johnson

We could not have had a better home buying experience than with Bridget! As our home base is in Atlanta area, getting up to the lake to view available properties in a timely manner was a challenge-especially when the market was on fire. Bridget was aware of our desires and constraints but persevered for THREE years and we are now proud lake house owners.

Professional, patient, helpful, prompt, friendly and all of the euphemisms for those apply! I don't anticipate having to use a realtor in Okoboji in the future, but if we do, she will be the one getting the call.

We were so impressed with Katie! She didn't
pressure us to make any decisions and she
promptly answered any questions we had
either by a phone call or text. Even though we live four hours away, she helped make our purchase go as quickly and smoothly as possible!

Barbara Taylor recommends Katie Slater

Katie Slater put her 110% into selling my house within a few weeks. Katie was always very positive, upbeat, and brought many potential buyers, to look at my property. We had a big bump in the road, but Katie swiftly smoothed that out, without a problem. I put all my trust in Katie's word and work; would list and buy from her again, with the highest recommendations! Great job, Katie Slater!!!

She knows her business and takes the time to know the customer and what they are looking for in a home. She helped us with everything from offer to closing. Katie was responsive and quickly through the process. She knows her stuff and in such a hot market knows how to move quickly and get an offer accepted. One of the best agents in the lakes!

Kodie Borchers recommends Katie Slater

Katie is patient, kind, honest and always had out best in mind. She never pressured us into feeling like we had to settle and wanted us to find the perfect home. Katie worked around our crazy schedule with our four young kids and didn't give up on us. It was an up and down roller-coaster, but she kept with us! I highly recommend Katie to anyone house shopping in the lakes area. I honestly can't say enough things about how great she was to work with!

Tim Albrecht recommends Katie Slater

Katie Slater navigated our condo purchase when supply was low and competition was high. Katie’s local connections and consistent communication allowed us to move quickly when anything opened.

Katie was careful to listen to our preferences, and able to help steer us into the perfect property for us.

Her demeanor, responsiveness, and flexibility of schedule were instrumental in helping us land the ideal place for us. She was a strong advocate on our behalf and made the difference in her negotiations with the sellers.

We we strongly recommend Katie knowing she will offer the same elite client services to you as she did for us.

Bob Dickkit recommends Bridget Johnson

She worked with us to find our condo. She knew what we were looking for & found a good unit that would fit our needs in this fast market period. She worked very well with our schedules and gave us good advice but never compromised us or the seller. Her correspondence was very timely, never had to wait for an answer.
