About Matt Lippon


I have called this area home for my entire life, I grew up and went to school in Spirit Lake and moved back to Okoboji after college.  I am a 2003 graduate of the University of Iowa with a degree in finance.  Before starting at RE/MAX, I worked at a local bank in several different areas of banking, this experience has become helpful to my real estate clients.

In 2006 I joined RE/MAX, essentially joining the family business with my parents and sister who taught me the business.  I am the only remaining Lippon team member actively selling real estate.  In 2014 I obtained my brokers license and I am licensed in Iowa and Minnesota.  I received Hall of Fame status from RE/MAX for my production over the years.

I am married with three daughters.  Outside of work I like to spend time with my kids and also enjoy golfing, fishing, hunting and following my favorite sports teams.

Matt is everything a realtor should be - perceptive, patient, persistent and utterly professional. My search for just the right house stretched over nearly 3 years and several different property options. Throughout Matt listened to my evolving requirements and presented me with excellent opportunities to see and consider varying properties and price points as well as sound advice and insights on the local real estate market. Once we settled on our house, he made himself readily available to help with our purchase after we'd returned to our home in Arizona. I can recommend him with absolute confidence

Matt did a great job finding my parents there dream home in the lakes area. Matt was patient and understanding about my parents particular needs, wants and expectations. Matt was not interested in finding just any home for my parents but the home they wanted. Matt helped them look at many many options and was diligent in his communication with us on new and upcoming listings. His email system was super helpful and easy to use. His knowledge of the lakes housing market is honest and accurate. We really enjoyed the experience we had with Matt. His knowledge, patients and honesty are second to none and I know that my parents would not hesitate to use Matt again.

Tom and I have worked with Matt for a couple of years trying to secure property in the Okoboji/Spirit Lake area. Although we have not found the property we want at this time we will continue to pursue our search with Matt Lippon. Matt is very knowledgeable of the real estate in the lakes area and has always shown us a varying degree of options. He is always willing to show property and takes his time to explain and offer his opinion of the property. When the time arises for us to move to the Okoboji/Spirit Lake area we know Matt will help make that transition.


16 Feb, 2017 12:01 PM CST

We have worked with Matt on more than one occasion in both buying and selling. I can say that Matt does an outstanding job in making sure you have so the information you need to make the best decision possible. Matt is very professional and knowledgeable about the local market. I would recommend Matt for either your buying or selling needs!
