I was born and raised in Le Mars, Iowa in an avid farming family who later ventured into the insurance business and expanded into the real estate market by purchasing and managing several investment homes and apartments. After graduating from Westmar College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration in 1974, I began my career in real estate with a large nearby firm. It didn’t take long to learn I had a true passion for selling real estate and in 1976, opened my own brokerage firm in Le Mars, Iowa -Lance Sitzmann Real Estate. I am truly blessed for that decision because selling real estate has been such a rewarding career for my family and me. It’s been a true honor assisting thousands of clients and building relationships over the years especially with the help of my wife Patty and my son Shane. I aim to provide a positive real estate experience with standards of excellence that will meet every client’s unique real estate needs. I am always learning and leveraging the latest technology and resources, and work persistently and without fail to achieve our clients’ goals and objectives. This client-focused, integrity-based vision has evolved into a business model with a rock solid reputation that has proven successful and produced positive results and experiences for our clients.
I am active in the following: member of Sertoma, past Sertoman of the Year, active member of the Le Mars Chamber of Commerce, past President of the Plymouth County Board of Realtors, member of the Iowa and National Association of Realtors, member of the Sioux City Board of Realtors and the Plymouth County Multiple Listing Service, member of the Knights of Columbus, member of the Plymouth County Cyclists and the United States Tennis Association. When I’m not selling homes I am often playing tennis, walking, biking or traveling.
