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”!

Very Honest

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 lake front 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!

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.

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.

Hardest Working!

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!

Worked Quickly

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.

Great Experience!

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,
