About Janie Eick

Welcome to my world of real estate, where passion meets experience and dedication. My name is Janie and my husband Ryan and I as well as our 4 kids live just east of Okoboji on an acreage. Ryan tends to our corn and soybean fields while our eldest daughter excels as a sales agronomist, our son joins the family in farming endeavors and our twin daughters are in 2nd grade at Okoboji Elementary.

My journey into real estate is deeply rooted in a lifetime of familiarity with homes and construction, thanks to my father's occupation as a land developer and home builder. Combined with my background in education and years of sales and negotiation experience gained at Procter & Gamble, as well as managing a showroom/gallery for Cambria, I bring a unique blend of skills to the table.

Helping clients navigate the intricate process of buying and selling real estate is not just a job for me—it's a calling. I understand firsthand the challenges of the Okoboji and surrounding market and the emotional rollercoaster of real estate transactions. That's why I'm committed to being your expert guide, ensuring a smooth and successful journey every step of the way.

With over five years in the real estate industry, I've closed 245 transactions and achieved the prestigious Hall of Fame status at RE/MAX in under four years—a testament to my unwavering dedication and client-centric approach.

I pride myself on being a quick communicator, transparent, and tirelessly dedicated to each client's needs. Whether you're looking to buy or sell real estate, I'm here to have your back, ensuring a stress-free and rewarding experience. Let's embark on this journey together and turn your real estate dreams into reality.

Janie helped us purchase a cabin in the Bridges Bay Resort and did an excellent job. She was very responsive when we had questions. We are not local and Janie went the extra mile helping us to sell some of the items left by the previous owner. We would recommend Janie to anyone in need of a realtor in the Okoboji area.

Janie was extremely helpful, professional, and excellent with communication during the homebuying process. Helping us through the process made it much less stressful, especially during the negotiation phase. As first time homebuyers, she was great to work with and did a good job of communicating with us and letting us know what to expect, how the process works, and what steps to take to ensure closing. We will be sure to use Janie for any future real estate endeavors!

Janie was very helpful, and explained everything concerning our buying our house. Was very patient with all our questions. Highly recommend her. She went totally out of her way every time we wanted to look at a house to buy. Really took time to explain and help us understand the procedures in purchasing our house.

Janie was incredible! Her knowledge of the properties was outstanding! Flexible schedule and prompt in replies/callbacks! She made the process so easy for purchasing our first home and was always there day or night for any kind of questions or information we needed!! Even after we had closed on our house Janie still is answering questions for us to this day! If you need to buy/sell a property Janie is the lady!

Janie is a wonderful real estate agent! Her knowledge of the market is impressive. She knows of all the listings as well as the upcoming ones. I told her what I was looking for and she delivered. I couldn't be more happy with the way things went. 100% recommend buying or selling your property with Janie.

We got connected with Janie by pure luck from Zillow, and we were so impressed with her. From our first meeting, her responsiveness, and especially her willingness to get more information for us. She was so helpful through every step of the process. She went above and beyond by coordinating with surveyors, City Officials on utilities, and getting HOA documents. We could not have found a better agent to help us find our Okoboji Home!

07 Jan, 2021

Janie was excellent to work with from start to finish in helping us find our forever home! She was friendly, understanding, and always kept great open communication. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a new home.

11 Feb, 2021

Janie made our whole experience so easy. We are completely new to the area, and Janie helped us with every step. She went out of her way to expedite our search for a home, the financing, the inspector, etc. And she helped search out all the local utilities for us, so we could be prepared for the move. Janie is a true professional, and we felt so lucky to have had her on our side!

17 Nov, 2022

Janie is great to work with and I highly recommend hiring her to help you sell or buy your next home. She knows the market extremely well and she works for YOU! I've had Janie sell two of my homes now and I've also purchased two homes from her. She truly gets the job done and there is no one else I would want to work with. We've also became good friends in the process and thats a bonus as well!

18 Aug, 2022

Janie was very helpful with showing us several houses to choose from. She helped us with negotiating and we were able to get it several thousands below their asking price. She worked with us as we had to have our closing date extended. We really appreciated all the time and effort Janie put in to get our new home in Spencer.
