I grew up in Mitchell , South Dakota. After high school I attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln my Freshman and Sophomore year of college. In 1987 I transferred to South Dakota State University and have been in Brookings ever since. I recieved my BA in psychology in 1990. I worked for Children's Home Society in Sioux Falls for a couple years but decided I needed to more connected in Brookings. I then worked for Moriarty Rentals in property management which is what sparked my interest in Real Estate.
I got my real estate license in 1994. I have my GRI designation and am 1 class away from my CRS designation. There has been so much change in the industry since then. When I started in real estate there was one page of agency disclosure, everyone represented the seller, and there was one page to the purchase agreement. Also when I started, IF you had a cell phone it was a little smaller than a brick and there was 1 computer in the whole building. The secretary typed our CMA's for us!
There are lots of things that I love about Real Estate. I enjoy working with First Time Homebeuyers because I of the education you are providing for them. It is the biggest purchase they have made so far in their lifetime and it is a learning process from the beginning to the end. When I am working with sellers I most enjoy photographing homes and helping them stage their homes. And, there isn't a better feeling than getting that call from a past customer that they would like to work with you again. What a compliment!
