Like Working With Family!
Mary Lynn Ingvall is the most outstanding realtor we have ever worked with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the lakes area. She moves property faster than anyone I have ever experienced. Besides her great work ethics, she is like working with family. You will never use any other realtor once you have used Mary Lynn. Thanks for all your hard work, Mary Lynn.

Over the last three years I've been looking for a storage facility in the Okoboji area. I would see one and call Mary Lynn, she would tell me the price and I would ponder it and not do anything. Mary Lynn always took my calls, always looked up the information and was always very gracious. This winter was no different I drove by a place and called Mary Lynn, we set up a time in February to look at it. Jon Ingvall joined us because of his expertise in commercial property, I replied, "it's great for what I want!" He then said "I have another one you might be interested in that's not on the market yet. I can call the individual who owns it and see if we can get in to look at it." Long story short, I ended up purchasing it! Mary Lynn and Jon Ingvall from Ingvall Real Estate Team always treat me like royalty. They are an incredible organization!

Mary Lynn worked very hard to help us find a buyer. She used her experience to do what it took to complete the sale. Her staff was effective in getting all the paperwork done while we were at a different location.

She is Amazing!
If you don’t hire Mary Lynn - you are crazy! She is amazing! Mary Lynn walks on water (because she goes out the night before and finds the rocks to step on). Seriously, she has been the most professional, responsive, honest, and transparent real estate agent I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond helping me find some local people to help me move snow, and move some boxes on very short notice! Mary Lynn gets it "SOLD!"

Having Will as our REALTOR® was just like having family around. Very helpful, honest, patient, great follow through and was never “pushy”. We have worked with numerous REALTORS® in our professional business and wish they were all like Will!

For Sale By Owner
When we were not able to create enough interest in our lakefront condo in trying to sell it ourselves, the Ingvall Real Estate Team stepped in and brought the perfect buyer with our price in only 2 weeks. Exceptional service! A personal thank you to Mary Lynn and Di at the Ingvall Real Estate team!

Go the Extra Mile!
Mary Lynn and her team will go the extra mile to get things done and make sure that the buyer is happy after the sale.
Pat & Jan M. October 13, 2017
The best call we made was contacting your office a few weeks back. After a lengthy search process with no progress prior to contacting your office, we contacted you, you listened to our desires and where we wanted to be on the lake. You found us something almost immediately. It felt less like you were trying to sell us something and more like you were simply connecting us with our future lake home. We highly recommend you and would use your services again. Thanks.
Gary R. August 16, 2017
Only person I considered!
When it was time to sell you were the only person I considered because of your past track record and positive reputation in the lakes area. You were creative in coming up with ideas to get it sold. Thanks so much for getting our home sold in the time frame we were shooting for and getting a very good price.
Steve T. August 1, 2017
We believe Mary Lynn is the hardest working REALTOR® in the Okoboji Area. We are so happy that we met her in 2006 at an Open House she was having. We think her biggest assets are her ability to find you the perfect home and then stay with you after the sale. Whether you need recommendations for painters, plumbers, or just her ideas for your home, Mary Lynn will be there for you years after the sale. We have bought and sold many homes with Mary Lynn, and now in 2017 we have made Spirit Lake our permanent home and it’s perfect for us! We are proud to call Mary Lynn a friend!
Craig & Chris S. July 14, 2017
Mary Lynn Ingvall is truly amazing. She does not miss a beat in helping her clients. I will recommend her to anyone I find who is interested in Lakes real estate.
Connie B. June 19, 2017
Always great working with Mary Lynn and her staff. They are the best! Anyone asks us about buying or selling in the lakes region it’s the Ingvall Real Estate Team. Thanks for all you do.
John B. June 19, 2017
We had a great experience working with Jon. He was very responsive to our questions and found great homes for us to look at. When it came time to put in an offer he worked quickly to finalize our agreement and get our family into a great home. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the Iowa Great Lakes.
Mike K. June 16, 2017
Mary Lynn Ingvall is a fantastic real estate adviser and friend to many in the Okoboji community. She is an active listener, knowledgeable and genuinely cares about her clients. She is sincere and adds significant value during all phases of the real estate transaction. We were fortunate to get introduced to Mary Lynn as part of our cabin search and we look forward to an on-going relationship with her. We recommend Mary Lynn if you are looking for a solid, responsive realtor partner.

Joe & Lisa B. June 14, 2017
Working with the Ingvall Real Estate Team has been a great experience. Everyone on the team was very professional and very pleasant to work with. All issues in selling my home were taken care of in a very timely manner and I was surprised to see my home sell in such a short time. It was so nice to do business with such a caring group! Thanks so very much,

The Decision was Easy!
When we decided to sell 2 of our waterfront properties, the decision was easy... we called the Ingvall Real Estate Team! Jon & Mary Lynn are the Okoboji Experts when it comes to buying or selling real estate. Professional, honest, experienced, and not to mention FUN to work with. Did I also mention great service after the sale?! Contact the Ingvall Team, you will not be disappointed!

Working with Will at Ingvall Real Estate Team, we couldn't have asked for a better experience! He was flexible to our needs and questions at all times. We wouldn't have gotten our wonderful house if he hadn't been on top of what's coming on the market! Thank you Will!

Fast, friendly, and easy! What more can you ask for out of a real estate team?

Professionalism and Diligence!
Thanks to your efforts our real estate transaction in the Lakes area has closed. We compliment you on your professionalism and diligence in handling the entire transaction from listing thru closing. There is no question in our mind as to why you have been the number one sales representative in the Lakes area for a number of years.
Pat & Dorothy N. August 3, 2016
We were her top priority!
Marla and I worked with Mary Lynn, Jon and Di on the purchase of our new townhouse. Mary Lynn and her team always made us feel like we were her top priority! They made the entire process run smoothly.
Dean Jacobsen August 3, 2016
Get the job done!
Being a Realtor is not always an easy job…bringing the buyer and seller together sometimes not happy, but Mary Lynn and Jon get the job done!
James Pollard August 3, 2016
Thank you, thank you to the Ingvall Team for not only selling my home that I was in but also finding me the perfect spot to relocate and call home. Both Mary Lynn and Jon were great through the whole process. I always felt like they went the extra mile because they truly cared that I was happy with all decisions made.
Tootie Harris August 3, 2016
Mary Lynn has made buying a home an amazing experience which can be a scary time in your life. She is always going above and beyond what you would ever expect, taking the time to listen to your dreams and wishes and turn them into your new home! Thank you Mary Lynn we love you!

Amazing To Work With!
Mary Lynn was amazing to work with. She responded quickly and thoroughly with any questions or concerns we had. We felt like she worked hard for us and was genuinely excited for us even after the sale.
Kayla Rosenboom June 9, 2016
She always has a smile
Mary Lynn is so helpful, even after a sale, with resources and contacts to make your new home reflect your style. She always has a smile and never too busy for a question.
Jean Kies May 9, 2016
I had a great experience. Mary Lynn made it easy.
Sandy Harris May 3, 2016
RESULTS!! Mary Lynn is extremely knowledgeable, motivated, and great to work with! We have been thrilled to work with her, and thrilled with our results!!
Eric & Brooke Thompson March 16, 2016
My respect for them is beyond reproach
I would like to take a moment to thank you and your team…for the wonderful job you did in recently selling our home. I think the word team is sometimes over stated, but not in this case. Mary Lynn listed our house, and Jon brought the buyer to the table in a manner of a week or so. There is a reason Mary Lynn and her team are usually number one in the area! My respect for them is beyond reproach, not only for their professionalism but also the timeless hours and dollars they give back to the community.
Jim & Nancy Higgins February 12, 2015
Overcame the obstacles
Mary Lynn—I wanted to thank you and your staff for the superb work you did selling the family lake home. It would have been impossible to get all of the things done that were needed to restore the house, and you were the best “general contractor” I have had the opportunity to work with—the only difference is that your contacts and keeping an eye on the work saved me a huge amount of money. =)
Your impressive range of services—including strategy, marketing, and a general ability to deal with difficult people, including the difficult resolution of the insurance claim before settlement—allowed me to sell the house at an optimum price. You overcame the obstacles of selling an older traditional home in an environment where most people today are looking for new homes. You did a great job. Mary Lynn—thank you for everything.
Robert Heggestad February 12, 2015
Thanks so much!
Jim and I wanted to say what a wonderful experience we had purchasing a condo through your office. Mary Lynn and Jon were so helpful, first in helping us find the perfect condo, and then with every step we had to take in the purchasing process. Any questions we had were quickly and cheerfully answered. In looking back, Jim and I were so glad we asked you to help us with this purchase. Thanks so much!
Jim & Kay Peters February 12, 2015
The best real estate agency we have ever dealt with
To say that we're elated at the service that was provided to us by Mary Lynn Ingvall's office wouldn't come close to describing our satisfaction. Mary Lynn, and everyone we dealt with through her, were so exacting, thoughtful, and professional in our search for our first lake home. We must have done something very good in our life to deserve someone so caring and competent as her to have crossed our path. The best real estate agency we have ever dealt with. Ever!
Dammika & Heather February 12, 2015
We had fun each time we got together
We had a very enjoyable experience purchasing our vacation home through Mary Lynn. You could actually say we had fun each time we got together and looked at a variety of homes. Mary Lynn was always accommodating to our schedule and had a true understanding of the type of home we were looking for. We looked at many homes before finding the right vacation home for us and Mary Lynn was always energetic and seemed to truly care about finding us the home that would make us happy. We never got the feeling that she was tired of showing us houses. If we ever want to buy or sell another home, we would go through Mary Lynn in the future.
Tony & Lori Bohlke February 12, 2015
Handled everything promptly and professionally
Working with Mary Lynn was stress-free. She was honest and up front regarding the potential sale of my property. She has excellent resources needed to sell your house. She kept me informed regarding showings and once the house sold, her office staff handled everything promptly and professionally.
Gail Pitzenberger February 12, 2015
Incredibly knowledgeable about the market
We hired Mary Lynn because we knew she was aggressive & would work hard to sell our home fast. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the market here on the Iowa Great Lakes. She helped us stage our home for selling, giving helpful tips & hints. Her pictures made our home show its best potential. We highly recommend Mary Lynn to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Tanya & Thane Johnson February 12, 2015
Mary Lynn worked hard to find us the perfect place
My wife and I are extremely happy with the experience we had on our recent sale of our home on Big Spirit Lake and purchase of our new residence in Arthur Heights. We found the experience to be a very positive and professional one. It was really pretty incredible that the entire sale became a three-party one with everything coming together in a matter of a couple of days. Mary Lynn helped us stage our home so that it had great lake appeal. At the same time, she also worked hard to find us “the perfect place.” We had so many stipulations and requests, which eliminated most of the homes for sale. However, she kept working until the right one came up. Then it was a matter of negotiating with both parties, which also went smoothly. We are very pleased with our sale and purchase and appreciate everything that Mary Lynn and her team did for us.
Steve & Darial Weisman February 12, 2015
Our best discovery in the Spirit Lake area
We weren't specifically looking for property to buy, but saw an open house sign and stopped by to check it out. Before long, we had found a new friend who quickly learned what our needs and interests were—as well as our limited price range! She thought we might like a modest, but wonderful, piece of property on East Okoboji, and by the end of the afternoon, we had checked it out, visited other similarly-priced properties to compare, and settled on our new lake home. She recommended lending facilities, and we closed and moved into the property in two weeks. What's more, she identified all the utilities we needed, provided contact information, and recommended a great plumber and a good carpenter for some consultations. And best of all, we struck up a great friendship with her that will remain for a long time. Needless to say, we would recommend Mary Lynn to anyone interested in real estate in the Spirit Lake-Okoboji area. She is the best realtor we have ever worked with.
David & Renata McFarland February 12, 2015
We all liked Mary Lynn
My wife and children were looking [for real estate] for a while until we meet Mary Lynn Ingvall. We all liked Mary Lynn and found her very knowledgeable and professional. We have been in our [new] cabin for 6 months and continue to be happy with the experience of purchasing at Okoboji, Iowa.
Peter & Adela Melley February 12, 2015
This team makes the transaction efficient
Mary Lynn understands the market and client needs, whether you are a buyer or seller. She and her team make the transaction efficient. I highly recommend her and her team.
