Getting To Know Our Key Players: Dan Ralston

Image
You want to trust your real estate transaction at the Lake of the Ozarks to someone with experience and extensive local knowledge of the Lake of the Ozarks community and real estate market. Dan Ralston is very involved in the Bagnell Dam Association of REALTORS® and has the experience and knowledge to ensure your experience is as seamless and financially beneficial as possible.


Dan moved to the Lake ten years ago in June, 2005. As a kid, he spent much of his time at a smallish lake in Lees Summit called Lake Lotowana. His parents had a summer cabin, as did his grandparents, and aunt and uncle. So, Dan grew up as a "Lake Rat." In 2003 he recalls reminiscing about the days when he would spend all his time at the Lake and how much he thoroughly enjoyed and missed those times. In having a discussion with a long-time friend, he expressed his desire to give his kids the same opportunities of growing up around a Lake atmosphere, and getting back to Lake living before retirement.
