Real Estate Agent - Keller Williams Sioux Falls - 13547
Getting back to work after a week vacation at our favorite lake is hard to do, especially after having a great time making memories.

My Granddaughter had invited us to her first ever science fair, and we were about to see what she had put together to show us. We entered the gym with about a 100 projects on display and about 500 people or so it seemed....
One of the more frustrating parts of Real estate is trying to get the client to come to the realization that their home needs to have a price reduction. Its nice to have listings to get exposure and pick up a client or two at an open house, but if they don't sell and the client doesn't want to lo...
We just don't know how far away the corner is. Having been blessed with a winter that we would like to put out of our minds, spring can't seen to get here soon enough, with gray snow banks, overcast skies, potholes the size of Volkswagen's, and more snow than anybody needs, we have had enough of ...
