buying a home in rapid city: Clients are Family. An Emond Team Client Story. - 09/24/19 03:13 PM
In 2013 Vince Herman and his girlfriend at the time bought a house together. It was a simple starter home in Box Elder with a garage and unfinished basement.
Life happened and they broke up about a year later. Since they both were on the title, it became necessary to sell and move on.
Thanks to the strong real estate market, they actually made some cash on the sale!
Fast forward to 2018. Vince landed a great job. He started enjoying life, taking exotic trips, and snorkeling whenever he could.
And it was time for him to buy his own place again.

Buying A Home Should Be Fun
An Emond Team Client Story  
“Yellow Car!”
I glanced sideways from driving to the next home I was showing Alex and Brittani to see what that was all about.
Alex, in the back seat, swore under his breath.  In the next moment, blurted out “Yellow car!”
“OK.” I said. “What’s going on?”
It was their car game.  You get into the car, the game begins.  Whoever sees and calls the most yellow cars before getting out of the car wins.  School buses, construction vehicles, and other commercial vehicles excluded, of course.
I loved that they felt comfortable enough around me that … (0 comments)

It was springtime.  In Rapid City.  And the market was hot.  I called the listing agent to … (1 comments)
