A little about me...

What’s a really cool thing about Okoboji?
Not only is there something to do all time if you love the's also such a safe place to raise your family

Meet Cara Naatjes

I'm not happy unless I'm busy and helping others. I was born to serve. Whether that's with my family, at work, or in Church. I'm a licensed real estate broker, a licensed mortgage broker, and a licensed insurance producer. It's my passion to bring to big city options to a small town population buy being a full service operation offering real estate, mortgage, and insurance services all under one roof. I've grown up at the Lake and am blessed to be surrounded by all strong men in my life. My husband DJ (our firms managing broker) and two sons, Cruz and Cain. They love adventure and all things sports related.

Unusual Fact- I have severe scoliosis and was told I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 18

Born in - Spirit Lake

Inspiration- My Mom and Jesus! Both make me strive daily to be a better version of myself. I always tells my one loves you more than your Momma and Jesus!

Proudest moment- Seeing my sons excel in sports they love

Biggest challenge- not saying No, I have a need to help everyone I cross paths with

Perfect day- Shopping and Manicures...and selling/investing in real estate🙂

First job- Washing cars at my Dad's car dealership

Favorite super hero- My Dad

Favorite Okoboji Location- on the dock of our lake house on Big Spirit
